  8. 5 Metal Albums You'd Take to a Desert Island

    Wow, I'm honored to have something included on a desert island list.
  9. What is the true definition of black metal?

    This is really only true for a subset of second-wave bands. There are a lot of BM bands that don't share those stylistic traits. Rather than boil the sound down to a simple set of exclusive characteristics, which you can't really do with bands as diverse as (say) Hellhammer, Dawn, and Deathspell Omega, I think it's better to listen to a bunch of early first wave BM, as well as early thrash and DM - to hear commonalities as well as differences -and then follow various threads to understand how they developed. One can certainly find or write black metal that sounds like what you've described, but that leaves out too much in the way of history and recent developments.

    He actually plays quarter-tone guitars. I love how he weaves those creepy off-time melodies together. My favorite of his quarter-tone stuff is Discontinuities. NP: Akercocke - Renaissance In Extremis
