Then they drag on longer.
I can respect that. Do you listen to a lot of black metal? I've noticed song length is something most bands of the genre struggle with. Negura Bunget seems to do the same thing. They keep it interesting, in my opinion, so it isn't as intrusive.

I listed multiple legitimate reasons earlier in the thread, they just got kind of buried amongst all the Rugrats memes.

Yeah, I feel like if your complaint is "the black metal parts are too long and stay and don't change", you're not listening close enough. If it's just too long for you, so be it, but if you listen to Dream House, Kerry never plays that chord progression the same way. It's constantly changing and really beautiful.

Nope. I like what I've heard of NB, but I'm not really a black metal guy.

Carcass just posted on Facebook about them being nominated for the Golden God Awards and they said that Deafheaven should've been nominated for Album of the Year.

Honestly kinda surprise they weren't, Golden Gods just seem to pick what's most popular in hard rock/metal.

I like both black metal and shoegaze, but I don't think they meld together nicely. Shoegaze is an upbeat and artistic style of music while black metal is abrasive and dark. I want to listen to one or the other, not both. I suppose many people are drawn to the contrast of the two styles, but it sounds awkward to me. The vocals and blast beats don't fit with the atmosphere they create with the riffs and production style.
