  1. "...Thorn" vs. Emperor NP: Demilich - The Echo Hate Eternal - Phoenix Amongst the Ashes
  2. Didn't Faust play with them on their last reunion tour?
  3. Post Mortem - Coroner's Office
  4. That's the best attitude to have about it. I've also had old friends who started being dicks or outright disappeared just because I got a new job, or moved to a better place, or went back to school, etc. People being shitty like that just makes them forgettable.
  5. Slaughterhouse. Seems less dangerous of the two. Who would you rather be, Sir Edmund Hillary or Neil Armstrong?
  6. I agree. I've heard people lump Mercyful Fate into that group as well. And apart from image and lyrical themes, I wouldn't call them Black Metal. They were a huge influence on Emperor and other bands, but no, not "the first wave." Honestly, Sepultura's Morbid Visions has more in common with Black Metal and even then it's really nothing more than an influence. Speaking of Venom, here's how "Black Metal" came about (excerpt from an interview with Venom Inc. from metal-rules.com): So basically: Did you know you were making history with that album? "I just had to take a shit." lol
  7. I'll go with Skittles since I haven't eaten them in a while. Who would you rather be--Miles Davis or John Coltrane?
  8. I headed for the mountains of Busch. I guess I'm there now.
  9. Dark Funeral's first self-titled EP is pretty badass too. I like both bands but I'm going with Marduk. I don't know, I just listen to them more. More albums and more consistently good albums. Early Marduk especially is essential listening.
  10. The Stupids - Peruvian Vacation
  11. S.O.D. - Bigger Than The Devil Because Charlie Don't Cheat.
  12. Killer. I really enjoyed it and ended up listening to it a few times.
  13. That's the best idea I've heard in a long time.
  14. Also, don't be afraid to break out a cape once in a while.
  15. D.R.I. - Dirty Rotten LP Frank Zappa - Zappa In New York
  16. Been watching Dawn of the Dead a lot lately (the original 1978 version). Watched it almost every night last week... also with the commentary on a few times. What a fucking awesome movie. I still need to see Dario Argento's re-cut of it.
  17. It all goes back to Hendrix, man Seriously though, I think black metal also refers to the Time when bands began playing in that style prominently. In other words the style, the period of time that it initially came about and how it developed after are what defines black metal inseparably. I don't think that anything that came before it or influenced it can practically be ranked similarly. It'd be like saying that all music is black metal. It's a marginal term anyway, but there's a big, unavoidable difference between Bathory and Judas Priest; same for the other bands in the OP.
