Norwegian Black Metal Dome

Postby timpickens on Sun Nov 17, 2013 10:17 pm

I predict this will mostly be between the first few listed, but what the hell. I only included "first wave" bands, if I left out your choice then sorry. Oh and I excluded Living Colour to make this fair.

I prefer the Pryor one, which was prior to these "first wave" guys.

Bonus for them not being racists/murderers.

Satyricon's Nemesis Divina is my favorite of that era of Black Metal. Hard to vote against it.

But even though Immortal is frequently ridiculous and have put out some real clunkers, their Blizzard Beast era stuff is so massively fucked that I just can't vote against them. I vote Immortal.

Don't know if it's really fair to consider Gogoroth first wave. That reminds me -I need to get more of their back catalog.

This is my first reaction, but I haven't listened to all of these "acts".

Anyone want to recommend the best record to get started with for each of the bands mentioned in this poll?

Burzum - Filosofem
Mayhem - Dom Sathanas
Satyricaon - Nemesis Divina
Immortal - Blizzard Beasts
Gorgoroth - I've only got Twilight of the Idols, but it's good
Emperor - Nightside Eclipse
Enslaved - eh ... Blodhemn
Darkthrone - Transylvanian Hunger
Ulver - The wolf one.

YMMV,

I could listen to Abbath's vocals all day.

I prefer my black metal vocals in the vein of popeye, thanks.

I chose Enslaved because it is the one who I still most enjoy listening to. Also BATHORY.

I feel bad because Gorgoroth has no votes right now, and Gaahl is the source of the greatest interview of all time:

Feel free to watch it over and over and over again.

I love certain Enslaved albums, but for fuck sake, have they become tedious lately.

Have to give it to Ulver for leaving the genre behind and going on to create so many interesting things.

Darkthrone have been exposed as essentially a joke band.

The rest can eat a dick and that "Second Wave" era is completely overrated at this point.

I'm voting Darkthrone based on Transylvanian hunger and fenriz seeming like a rad dude. Would have said immortal based on classic Albums 2-4 but I don't enjoy anything after blizzard beasts and they seem pretty goofy these days.

Good list!!

Bathory wins always! Bathory, though, actually is "first wave". It's a little confusing to call all this "first wave Norwegian BM", because while that's technically correct, all these bands are second wave in black metal as a whole.

Someone mentioned Gorgoroth not being first/second wave. They are, it's just that era is pre-Gaahl. Gaahl is the most popular factor in Gorgoroth, but if you like raw BM, you can't go wrong with early Gorgoroth. Listen to anything off of their first album, Pentagram.



An ex-girlfriend once admitted that during a time when we were just friends, and she was nursing a crush, she snuck into my room on a recon mission. She wanted to learn about the music I listened to, so she went on my laptop and picked something random off my iTunes and it started playing early Gorgoroth. After about 10 seconds she closed everything and snuck back out again, never to later bring up any band talk.

How so? Yer an idiot. Exposed? Darkthrone does whatever the fuck they feel like. Name me a better Guitarist, a better Drummer, in Norwegian BM.

OOOHHH, they added punk influences, they added crust influences, they added King Diamond influences.

Shut up. Darkthrone destroy all else, they just grew up, and didn't wanna pose as depressed nihilistic teenagers, when they were just mid-thirties metal heads.
