Big Grin For anyone curious about black metal...

For anyone that has the slightest curiousity about the world of black metal (u2popmofo you in particular )
There is a Brooklyn photographer Peter Beste that took a trip to Norway to check out what this whole tjhing is about. He pretty much did a photographic documentary (interviews and phtos) of the whole thing.
As a fan of metal I found it very interesting, so check it out.

recently i've been getting more into euro death/black metal type stuff so this was pretty interesting to me. are there some bands you would recommend to a newbie? i don't really own any other an an opeth album and a lamb of god album, and lamb of god aren't even european .

i've sampled an immortal record on itunes and it sounds pretty cool. my one problem with the genre is the whole evil/satanist thing. i'm not really a christian, but some of the things these guys say in their interviews just creeps me out.

Glad you are checking out metal
Cool that you know about Opeth. (Opeth=God, hehe) Lamb of God are actually good one of the few American metal bands that don't suck.

About black metal, its funny, NOT ALL bands sing about satanism, you picked a good band for example, Immortal, none of their lyrics mention satanism or even religion in general, their music is more about Norway and its folklore and stuff like that. In the other hand you got bands like Dimmu Borgir, Burzum, and Darkthrone that sing about evil shit.

Besides Immortal, if you want black metal bands that isn't necessarly satanic or evil check out Zyklon and Borkganar. Let me know if you want to learn more about other bands.

i think i'm going to buy the latest immortal album off of itunes. do you know where i can sample zyklon or borkganar?

dimmu borgir seems kind of lame the more i hear of them. from what i hear that overuse the eerie synth thing.

is emperor any good? i hear that they are like the creme de la creme of norwegian metal.

Here's one sample of Borknagar from their website http://www.borknagar.com/splash/Bork...miniscence.mp3 Just love it
I guess if you want to sample from Borknagar, Zyklon, and Emperor (Emperor's website has some samples) I would check Amazon or some other internet music shops.

Yea, Emperor were THE black metal band in the early and mid 90's they sort of broke up in a weird way and became Zyklon (metamorphis or something )
Zyklon has nothing on Emperor they will kick your ass!
I like Dimmu by the way
