Black Metal History Month
 
February is the grimmest and kvltest of all months, so you best get to know your black metal. (This thread is just for fun and to help foster some knowledge in our board members who might not know about black metal that much!)

[B]WEEK ONE: ROOTS[/B]

May not be black metal in the strictest sense, but it definitely helped form the genre.

Venom is more like a speed/heavy metal band, but they helped form black metal by singing mostly about satan and evil, and using satanic imagery in their artwork and live shows. Also, they coined the term "black metal."

From Switzerland, started off as more of a crusty/d-beat type of band but eventually added distortion and more black metal elements.

Formed from the ashes of Hellhammer. One of the biggest influences in death, thrash, and black metal. Later an influence in progressive and gothic metal. Also, one of my top 5 bands of all time.

Probably the only "first wave of black metal" band that actually played music the closest to black metal. Also pretty much single handedly created the viking metal genre. Without Bathory, there wouldn't be black metal.

Throwing Slayer's first album up here too. The imagery and lyrics and general sound went a long way in helping black metal get started. SPIKES AND LEATHER, FUCK YEAH.

Probably helped black metal develop the most in terms of lyrical content. Pure evil when you really read it, but the music is (amazing, but) strictly heavy metal.

----

If you have any other bands that you feel like really helped shape the face of current black metal, shout 'em out!

omg racist

Just kidding. I celebrated the start of black metal history month yesterday by listening to Blut aus Nord on the way to class. It was snowing sideways, 30-40 mph winds. Sucked shit.

The first and best USBM band. So much more fucking evil, bizarre and satanic than all the Norwegian bands combined. And Varg wore a Von shirt at his trial, so it's ok for Second Wave of BMers to like them. They reunited last year and sound like Emperor and look like cholos.

Quintessential Brazilian war death noise. The first few albums are good, then they put out kinda boring thrash stuff, then they put out weird drum machine stuff only adored by true satanic skinheads. Wagner Antichrist is now an econ professor. If you are a false don't entry, because you'll be burned and died.

This will definitely be a good topic.

Although this band may not have had such a major influence like the bands already mentioned, I think Sarcófago should have their place here.

They really should. I lost my music a while back and I never went back and got Sarcofago again. I'll put them on my list. ;)

Great thread. I agree with all the bands mentioned, although I've never heard Von before. Guess I should get on that.
