There were definitely some right-wing elements (and a lot of that can be attributed to the fact that a lot of these dudes were teenagers at the time, and teenagers are frequently idiots) to some of the Norwegian bands, but for the most part the wordwide BM scene was/is just dorks who liked to wear make-up and were fascinated by Tolkein and pagan mythology. A lot of these bands are/were staunchly apolitical.

That said, I still think Varg is kind of a dipshit and the Sid Vicious of Black Metal.

We can still be friends, for sure, but this shit is wack. I don't get it. I throw around the term 'hooks' too much, as I consider some droney stuff like sleep and om to be full of 'hooks'. This stuff doesn't have whatever I think of as a 'hook'. It's like super dull, overused chord progressions with cringe inducing 'BINGGGGGGGGGGG' notes played on an awful keyboard, and some dude showing off his double kick skills. Still luv u tho.

Oh- I didn't even listen to that link, I was just reiterating my previous opinion on the stuff I have already. I tried again, stoned. Maybe I'd like the music at that link better though.

Really?

I gotta say I'm disappointed. It's too happy. Guess I'm not that into the folk metal elements, the chanting, and the power metal riffs. Maybe I'm way off in my initial perception here, but ..

The early Scandinavian scene was influenced by stuff like The Stupids, Cryptic Slaughter, and the regional Bathory.
It had a sense of humor, was fueled by adolescent drinking, and resulted in bands like Checker Patrol.
It was only after Earache started selling records that certian individuals felt the need to put on a more "evil" persona and start acting like nazi morons and neo-Odinists in an effort to compete with the musically superior Entombed. If a truely unique vocalist like Dead had stayed in Sweden and started fronting Nihilist, he would have had a backing band worthy of complimenting his talents. Had he avoided talentless media whore twats like Varg and Euronymous altogether, who knows what musical greatness could have been created.

I'm on track 3 of Fallen and I have to say, this album is blowing me away. Much better songwriting than on Belus. It's certainly a little more polished sounding.

This turd just won't flush, will he?

I heard Belus. It was boring. Whatever, not like I paid for it. Maybe I'll listen to the new one. Maybe I'll forget about this murderous shithead for another half-decade. We'll see.

You know when you split with a friend/partner/whatever and you just remember all the music they liked and you have this inexplicable, permanent mental link between the two?

Some guy I used to hang out with just idolized Burzum. Studied his interviews, wore similar clothes -- thankfully not the prison jumpsuit, but everything else was down-pat. I had no idea who Burzum was when I met this friend of mine, so I looked him up (Burzum, I mean).
First time I'd ever met a Neo-Nazi. Ahh, good times, but it didn't end well.

Actually, the music I don't mind so much. But it just reminds me of that guy. And really, if I can't be down with the artist, I just can't be a fan of the output. I can enjoy it superficially, but I can't truly enjoy it.

What the hell is a waiting-for-the-used-copy-on-Amazon-because-he's-too-PC-to-give-Varg-his-money Burzum fan to do?

I liked Belus; should I buy this, or not? Help me, Burzum fans!

Can relate. That is tough.

Almost ruined Lungfish for me.

What I eventually realized, though, is that Lungfish fucking rules, and fuck her. Y'know?

I really enjoyed his distinction between Morrissey and Ian Curtis. Right on the money.

A Totem Pole wrote:Dominic Fox, a colleague of Mark Fisher (the author behind k-punk), published a book entitled "Cold World" that delves into the same topic matter, but with more of a specific focus (I believe) on recent black metal (like Xasthur). I haven't read it but it's been on my list for a while. Here is a relevant link. His blog is good, too.


This book has been on my must-read list for a long time. I am a little scared of it, though, to be honest. I'm depressed enough, y'know, without delving into the theory of depression. But dude talks about Codeine in his introductory chapter, so yeah, I am sold.

A Totem Pole wrote:Their agenda is interesting and certainly seems more sincere than a lot of modern incarnations of the genre. I like how they sort of called out a lot of new black metal bands for their Baudrillardian appropriation of Norwegian black metal, who have mostly come to lack substance under the guise of tremolo picking and face paint. I enjoy reading their interviews.


Absolutely. One of the best interviews is here

I've been listening to the self titled release up to Filosofem a lot lately. Great stuff, even though I usually find the trappings of black metal to be pretty ridiculous. Too bad Varg Vikernes is such a scum bag.

I was stupidly on the verge of weighing in on #CancelKingBuzzo but stopped myself when I remembered I still love Burzum up through Filosofem. It's complicated.
