    Judging by the cover

    I definitely often judge music by the cover art. It is usually easy to tell from the visuals, especially in black metal, what kind of music you will be getting into. I think that when a particular band developed an identifiable sound that others would seek to replicate, that the sound automatically becomes closely tied with whatever visuals it was paired with. It is also worth noting that the same can typically be said of band logos as well. etching/drawing = atmospheric/ambient bm digital art = contemporary "atmospheric" and clean bm any cover with Kittelsen artwork = Burzum inspired barbed wire circle = war metal

    Asian metal music

    In my opinion, the East Asian metal scene is really good right now, especially in regards to extreme black/death/noise metal. Tetragrammacide (India), Kapala (India), Reek of the Unzen Gas Fumes (Japan), Grizzly Fetish (Japan), Fogged by Fleshflies (Japan/S. Korea), Thy Sepulchral Moon (S. Korea), Konflict (Sri Lanka), and Genocide Shrines (Sri Lanka) are all very good. I would love to hear about more, though.

    That's strange, but fortunate.

    They're not banned? Considering how closely they associate with NSBM, I would have imagined that much of their material would have been blacklisted there.

    I will need to hunt around for it, I guess. Just another thing on my ever-growing "to but" list...

    What Are You Listening To?

    I really liked this ep, it's too bad they produced so few physical copies.

    Do you care about lyrics?

    I agree, and that's exactly why I think this conversation is important.

    Do you care about lyrics?

    That is an interesting point. I suppose that rather than moralizing art, one could instead simply consider immoral things to not be within the realm of art at all. That way, one could still insist that art is free expression without the worry that evil people might abuse such license.
