    Balor given a Damn from CrowSeer in BEGINNER musician in need of Black Metal advice   
    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.

    Thanks a lot guys. I will start with the classical via youtube and check out those songs mentioned @Balor. Really appreciate the time you both put into answering. Thanks again!
    If anyone else has some advice to share I would love to hear it too.

    My bad. Thanks for moving it.

    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.

    "Dunkelheit" - Burzum (Filosofem):
    One of the most essential and atmospheric songs ever produced by Burzum (or any other bm band in general).  An absolute classic.

    There is a War Metal thread in the "More Sub-Genres" section.

    Already have actually been doing Pull the Plug (Death) on top of that and vocal coach thinks doing the Pantera will help me long term with the goal being to switch between clean and harsh vox for the stuff I'm writing.

    Welcome!  Burzum is one of my favorite metal bands as well.  I used to listen to Powerwolf a lot, but have not done so in years (I will need to give them a listen again!).  Do you play any instruments?

    Megadeth - 'Youthanasia'
    My favourite Megadeth album, and I had the shirt of this back in 1995.
    This isn't a thrash album, it's an album of melodic anthems with huge choruses. It's just amazing. Every song is a pop metal hit. Listening to this now takes me right back to my teenage years. 10/10.

    "Rainbow Mirror" for sure. Not his most accesible record but in my opinion his best one and since you already know PE it should be easy listen for you.
     
    I also recommend his album "Frozen Niagara Falls" which is leaning more towards Death Industrial but its a total masterpiece.
     
    Dominick is pure genius man

    I have never listened to Prurient before, but have heard them mentioned a lot.  Any recommendations on where to start with them?

    Hell yeah! Their album "Death Mask" its a true masterpiece in my eyes. They're the first PE band I ever listened to along with Prurient (another great artist)

    Ramleh is definitely one of the best bands in all of industrial and power electronics, and this is one of their best albums. Everyone here should give this a listen.

    Do you like Sutcliffe Jugend?

    @ Balor, thanks for warm welcome!  I should have taken pics last house I lived in but didn't get around to it... those days I was married and during those years I was drawn away from my collection... "honey-do" distractions...LOL  Recently I've relocated from West Palm Beach, FL up to outside of Richmond, VA area and most everything I still own is in storage while I'm staying with family that is struggling with cancer to help out while I figure out where I'm going to work next!!  At least I had converted a boat load into digital medium like FLAC and MP3 that is what I'm finding joy in while at family's house... also, you'll have to stop by the radio station I've included as part of my signature.... WOW they have EVERYTHING covered within the several metal stations... a bunch of GREAT guys too!!!  I'll start a separate post to talk more about that as I know this is merely and introduction place...
    Thanks again for the immediate welcome, brother!  I hope you're able to have an amazing weekend wherever and whatever you're getting into...

    That's great Balor. A track with noise is pretty essential, otherwise it's hard to hear it. 
    Not much to report here. I just bought a ticket to Fleshgod Apocalypse for Nov 1. Lots of shows in Melbourne at the moment of some of my favourite bands.
    Just ticked off Dark Funeral and Cradle of Filth last weekend (on two separate nights! I was destroyed), Bloodbath is this Sunday, Turilli/Leone Rhapsody is in October, Fleshgod at the start of November and KISS towards the end of November with the mighty rock-warrior @True Belief
    Not to mention the plethora of local gigs in the nooks and crannies.
