I think Black Metal's sole purpose of existence in as a subgenre today is for a little comic relief. Heavy Metal needs that sometimes you know? I
just hope they don't do like Glam Rock did to the scene by pretty much killing it.
Black Metal or more specifically Norwegian Black Metal a complex thing, the separations and divisions in the genre are worth fighting over, and we
like to do that because it stimulates progress.
Like Triptykon / Celtic Frost is "Death Metal" not black metal...
Triptykon/CF is more like doom metal as far as I can see.
Extremely dark, very heavy, but sludgy. Black metal is a more strident, complex, and furious sound, take an Emperor album, and listen to it, and then
play some Celtic Frost, and the difference becomes obvious... Assuming that is, that one has an ear for our particular sort of music!
