Black Metal

Recommended Posts

Re: Black Metal Finland has great black metal, death metal, grindcore, and extreme doom, an excellent country for metal in general. Ugra Karma is my favorite Finn BM album, probably followed by Drawing Down the Moon and any of Horna's many greats, but Baptism is also awesome. Not familiar with Sagreligious Impalement, I would assume they're a bit more bestial sounding?

Re: Black Metal Silencer would be so much better without that idiot of a vocalist. Death, pierce me has some incredible riffs but the dying cat vocals take a few point off, you could be listening to some cleaner chords and getting into the song and then hear: "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"!

Re: Black Metal I listen to too many black metal bands to name but I am particularly fond of 90s black metal above all. It doesn't matter to me what style, how revered or reviled the band is; if I like it, I'll listen to it. I have a pretty solid CD collection of 90s black metal releases which I am very proud of.

There's still lots of great stuff out there, but it seems like the concentration of pure excellence from that period hasn't been rivaled since.

Re: Black Metal

Absu fucking kick ass' date=' I may have to check out those other bands now that I'm pretty much past my initial issues with harsh vocals[/quote'] Take a run through all of those recommendation videos I posted and let me know what you think. I left that section and the death and doom sections lighter than I would have otherwise to see what you would be into and what didn't work for you before I recommended more bands, but I'm more than happy to go back through and fill in the gaps (that I am familiar with anyways, my want list is still huge).

Re: Black Metal sludge is still right out of the question for me and those wet fart growls really give me the shits other then that so long as the vocals aren't totally unrecognisable I'm probably going to like it, I'm a little more curious about melodeath and symphonic black metal then I was at first mainly because of wanting to check out the full spectrum of the genres

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
