Old school black metal

The first wave of black metal (or old school black metal) refers to those bands during the 1980s who influenced the black metal sound and formed a prototype for the genre. They were often speed metal or thrash metal bands. Venom’s album entitled Black Metal inspired the name of the genre. Edit this Artist photo: Watain
