  1. Most anticipated albums of 2017

    Do you know if they will be reissuing the wooden box limited edition version?
  2. Most anticipated albums of 2017

    So they are producing it for US distribution now, interesting. I guess ordering my copy from Poland may have been unnecessary. At least I got a package with some interesting foreign stamps.
  3. Most anticipated albums of 2017

    Why can't they just release new material already? Part of me thinks that they simply used this to experiment and will just end breaking up without creating anything else.
  4. What Are You Listening To?

    "Songs of Grief and Solitude" - Drudkh
  5. I understand what you are saying, but I am looking for a clear and unambiguous definition. There is no reason why a certain emotional response could not be part of it, if fact, that could make it even better. What about Drudkh? They are definitely black metal, but they have a warmth in a lot of their music. With a genre as diverse as black metal, how would you distinguish what belongs in it from what does not? For instance, to me, a lot of the first wave bands (except Bathory) sound closer to thrash and death metal than most black metal. Would you include a historical connection to/inspiration from earlier black metal bands as part of a definition of what makes a particular piece of music black metal?
  6. This is exactly what I am trying to avoid, but I understand what you are talking about. What gives you the feeling, and what does not?
  7. What are its essential features? What makes it what it is?
  8. Is it really technical though?
  9. I take it that the new Dying Fetus album is really good then. I liked some of the random songs of theirs that I have heard, but always found them to be a little too techy. Would you recommend it?
  10. recommendations?

    Too, bad. I like Drudkh a lot so I always wish that I would be able to find more bands like them, but perhaps it is better that they are unique. Does Zhrine only have one album? I remember listening to part of their new one and liking it a lot.
  11. Top 5 Second Wave Black Metal Albums

    I'm surprised that more people did not include Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk by Emperor in their list. I think that that album should definitely be one of the top five. Filosofem by Burzum should definitely be there too.
  12. recommendations?

    Does anyone know any bands that sound similar to Drudkh that you would recommend? I looked into Winterfylleth briefly, and thought that it sounded somewhat similar from what I heard.
  13. Best black metal solo!

    The last three songs on Drudkh's Estrangement album all have really good solos that blend seamlessly with the atmosphere of their music.
  14. Books?

    If you read the book, make sure that it is the complete version. The film and many other versions of the book do not have the final chapter, and do not end as the author intended them to. I have never seen the 1984 movie. I will have to look into it at some point.
  15. Books?

    Just started reading A Clockwork Orange (about 1/3 of the way through). I like it, but I don't think it was good as 1984.
