  1. Speaking of Mayhem, it took me a while to like A Grand Declaration of War. The first several times that I listened to the album, I was totally thrown off by how weird it is. I listened to it without realizing that it represented a deliberate attempt to reinvent the band's sound, so I had expected it to sound like Chimera. I have never been a fan of spoken word, and was initially really disappointed by Maniac's vocal delivery. Now, though, I have grown to like it more than any other Mayhem release, and I think that that was because it was so different from anything they (or any other bm band) have ever done. It is a work of genius, and such things can often only be recognized for what they are after spending a great deal of time with them.
  2. I really like Discogs too, as I have also been able to find some rare releases up for sale. It is a bit annoying that they ban so much music from being sold on their site, though. They are too arbitrary in what they do and do not allow.
  3. I have been listening to a lot of good music lately: the new ZSS album (which is great), and various tracks by Black Mass of Absu.
  4. Welcome! What bands and genres to you like to listen to? How long have you been into metal?
  5. Band merch is getting way out of hand! First Behemoth starts making coffee and before you know it Burzum has baby clothes! https://www.zazzle.com/burzum_baby_bodysuit_white-235635393799851160
  6. That top Bell Witch cover is great. It always caught my eye on bandcamp. Now that I see it close up, they have a really cool logo to. I will have to check them out sometime.
  7. I knew that it was a joke, but was also wondering what happened to the thread. To be fair, I only listened to INRI one time.
  8. Just you wait... Behemoth brand coffee will be flying off the selves of every grocery store by the end of the year! Actually, speaking of Behemoth and the topic of this thread, I would be happy to never have listened to "I Loved You at Your Darkest." Conceptually, it was a hypocritical mess. Musically, it was far from memorable.
  9. Do you know the label that released it? Was it a bootleg or official?
  10. Any examples of what you might be looking for? Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  11. I started with classical guitar and the transitioned over to bm. @FatherAlabaster is right in saying that it would be a good place to start. Classical guitar helps you build up a strong comfort level with the instrument that will translate over to any style. Another thing that I found helpful was learning to play some bm songs. It doesn't matter whether you have an acoustic or electric guitar, the skills will transfer over. Songs like Burzum's "Ea Lord of the Depths" is really great for learning to change strings while tremolo picking (as is Emperor's "I am the Black Wizards"), and Darkthrone's "Transylvanian Hunger" is a good drill for practicing two string riffing. Hope this helps. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk

    It sounds like they would be a good place to ask the question that was being discussed above, then. Its nice to know that the band (or their management at least) is willing to engage with fans.
