I find black metal oddly soothing.

Savage music soothes the savage beast...
Wolves In The Throne Room. The title track from Diadem Of 12 Stars.

They're probably my favourite atmospheric black metal band. Huge, epic, suffocating sound.

I'm sorry, but that makes me giggle.

Don't tell Lance or Laz though. They're not as forgiving as I am.
I just find movies to be lazy. You sit there and observe; the story is told to you. It's not very involving. I'll take music and literature. Especially since I can take both at once. You can't watch a movie and read Dostoevsky at the same time.

What makes me laugh is suicidal black metal.

Sure, some of it's good if you're into the black metal sonic aesthetic, but "suicidal black metal"? Come on, guys. At least "depressive black metal" doesn't sound completely stupid.

I see what you're saying, that's cool.

There are pretty avant-garde films out there I'm sure you'd like. I have a feeling you'd like David Lynch films if you gave them a try. Screwtape is more of an authority on his work than I am.

Yeah, I have heard of some avantgarde films that sound like they'd be pretty interesting. I've no idea where exactly I'm meant to find them though. I suppose bit torrent; I just hate my slow Internet connection. Not that it's slow compared to Ravva's dialup.

I also want to see the movies that have been used in Agalloch's music. I believe a number of samples in their songs come from Ingmar Bergman films.

I've never heard of them *writes down name*

I'll have to check 'em out.

Thankfully there's a local shop now that is carrying quite a few decent metal bands.

Are you in Isis? I was just curious as to whether they growl or if it's clean vocals or mixed.

I just think films are a different aesthetic than books and music. You can't really ask one to be like the other without chances of it being an epic phail, you know? That's just my opinion, and I don't think I used the word "aesthetic" correctly.

My personal recommendation to you if you haven't seen it already is Blade Runner. You want atmosphere, it's got it in shit-tons. Vangelis' score reeks of atmosphere. I think what I'm trying to say is that it's good on atmosphere.

Also, a robot gouges a man's eyes out with his thumbs. Fun for the whole family.

You've got to listen to them. Both Diadem Of 12 Stars and Two Hunters are incredible albums. They do very long, sweeping, epic songs with massive walls of intense guitars. Trust me when I say all the superlatives are justified. If you've ever heard Weakling, these guys take the Weakling template and make it so much better.

Isis are pretty good. The vocals are more shrieks, and buried under waves of post-metal sound. I recommend the song So Did We from the album Panopticon as the place to start.
