    Wow best true black metal I've ever heard but they ripped off Sunbather. Still better than that fake Mayhem/Emperor/Darkthrone crap though.

    I don't think it's too pretentious - I actually think it's genuine and interesting - but HHH did ruin himself with that ridiculous manifesto..really garbage move.

    If it weren't for the absolutely hilarious fluff surrounding Transcendental Triple H's band nobody would give a single shit about this subpar pretend black metal bullshit. Go listen to Krallice if you want to hear a band that's more than competent enough to do this kind of music.

    I think it's a really interesting sign of Liturgy's success that they're still prompting a lot of discussion, good or bad, three years since their last release. I for one think any attempt to compare them to "classic" black metal is pretty misguided on all fronts. Hunter made that mistake himself in his essay, but it was a decent if arrogant effort to attempt to explain what was going on. What we have really been hearing lately with bands like Liturgy, Deafheaven, and especially Krallice is the legacy of post-rock's influence on music in general. Ten years ago bands like Mono were coincidentally applying stylistic methods very, very similar to black metal in the climaxes of their songs, but the feeling was always a sort of fleeting triumph. But post-rock aimed to build up to this point from a neutral state of silence. With post-black metal ("transcendental" please fuck off) you have this idea of juxtaposing the climax to an opposite extremity, rendering it more poignant.

    Transcendental black metal is cool. I'm now on the hunt for transcendental nu metal and thrash metal.

    I just say that each society shapes its culture, and BM was a product of some nihilist and anti-humanist European background. I just say that American culture will produce its own brand of BM, but it won't be like in Europe and TRVE BM hooligans will complain forever about USBM without understanding this. That's all. I agree with your 'free will' point, but 'free will' is not absolute, is limited by society and its cultural/economical/political relations.

    though, honestly, this won't go anywhere because the rift is massive. I don't find music politically motivated - I believe creation makes the culture but culture does not necessitate the creation, especially in modern times - and I'm certain the brother I'm responding to does, or he wouldn't have made such a poignant analysis, so there's nothing to gain. the disagreement is from the outset. how much free will does man have? each of us will decide if we're a symptom of society or a symptom of our own freewill. I guess I mean the whole anti-intellectual sentiment I carry with that too. anti-history; anti-politics; anti-human. that's suitably a more black metal conclusion.

    and what about asian black metal? south american black metal? are they somehow more capable in imitating culture and america isn't? is black metal now european folk music? I again object to this nonsense. metal has its own unique subculture in modern times. the motivations to why the scenes started are dead.
