From the wikipedia article:

Black metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal. It often uses fast tempos, shrieked vocals, highly distorted guitars played with tremolo picking, blast beat drumming, and unconventional song structure.

During the 1980s, certain thrash metal bands formed a prototype for black metal. This so-called "first wave" included bands such as Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost and Sarcófago.[1] A "second wave" arose in the early 1990s, mostly of Norwegian bands such as Mayhem, Burzum, Darkthrone, Immortal and Emperor. This scene developed the black metal style into a distinct genre.

Black metal has been met with great hostility from mainstream culture, mainly due to the extremity of the genre. Moreover, a small handful of musicians have been linked with church burnings, murder or National Socialism.

Here's a link showing the genre gaining in popularity slightly:

I tend to enjoy the complexity of music, such as Bach's Cello Suite.

This is just death to my ears. Which, if rumors prove correct, is exactly what they were going for.

I don't know much, but I do know Opeth kicks me right square in the nuts. Ghost Reveries is one of my favorite albums from the last decade. It's not Bach's cello music but it's pretty complex if you ask me. Heck, all the good drummers nowadays are in death metal bands because everything else is boring except prog and there's no money in prog.

I don't get what constitutes a "third wave" of black metal. That song by Burzum didn't sound any different than a hundred other bands I've already heard.
To me, it's all just music. Whether it;s Prokofiev or Korn, John Denver or Mastadon - it's just sound - some I love, some I don't, others just depending on what my mood is.
I'd never head Opeth before, they really are talented! Thanks, I'll be checking them out.
My metal faves would be - Black Sabbath, Sepultura, Lamb of God, Older Megadeth & Metallica, Mastadon and Judas Priest. And Iron Maiden of course!

thats because none of the stuff here is third wave
, infact most stuff linked here isnt even black metal




third wave is kinda applied to the kind of black metal that currently floats around. Some is really experimental and post-rock influenced and some is quite close to the 2nd wave.

I posted a link to a Facebook site called "New England Black Metal." I thought that at least one of those bands fit the bill for 3rd wave. They're called Adrift, from Connecticut. It's nautical themed black metal that is somewhat ambient. It's true a lot of so-called 3rd wave is more experimental and influenced by post-rock, I would even dare to say influenced by shoegaze, although I know I'll receive flack for making such a comparison.

Only First Wave is real!!!











Sorry about being off topic, but I really don't listen too much new black metal. And if people can post Opeth and Meshuggah(which aren't even black metal by the way, but everyone hates a genre snob), then I can post Hellhammer!!!

I love Bach as well, and wouldn't you know it, Black Metal is influenced by certain classical, at least that's how it sounds to me. For a real grasp of the genre, check out this guy's videos: www.youtube.com...

Some of the posts on this thread aren't the greatest examples of good Black Metal.

True, Opeth isn't Black Metal but I figured few would notice the difference.

Should I post some Deicide to regain my cred?

Deicide is old school floridan styled death metal :B

Black Metal is associated with church burnings. While some church burnings in the South have been directed at black Baptist churches and are linked to the kkk, Black Metal church burnings differ in motive. The church Varg burned was a historic christian church that was built on a pre-Christian pagan holy site. Pagans see the Christian take over as akin to war, as people were killed if they did not convert. Today Christian churches are associated with rampant pedophilia:

Black Metal is just an easy way to categorize a certain set of musical components typically associated with the genre. I don't think there should be "waves". I do think there should be qualifiers. Such as Satanic Black Metal or Pagan Black Metal or Viking Black Metal.... you know?

With Black Metal there is a theme behind the music... it could be Satan, it could be Paganistc, it could be Nationalistic or Culturistic or in few cases, the music is Anti-thematic but still classified as Black Metal.

In some cases, a band could appropriate all the characteristics of other Black Metal bands and be classified as Black Metal. This means the sound of the genre is - for lack of a better term - generic.

Trebley guitars. Screeching or high pitched growling vocals. Blast beat drumming. The charisma of the band, as a unit, is portrayed as "anti" something. There are few Black Metals bands who are "pro" anything! That is why the term Black Metal is very appropriate for this sound of music. Negativety should be the ultimate goal of all Black Metal bands. Otherwise, they are not doing their job correctly!
I don't know what I'm saying here but it's Christmas and I'm drunk on the internet
Happy Hollidays!

Here's some pro-environmental Black Metal straight from the good old State of Washington, USA. The band is called Wolves In The Throne Room:

WITTR are great wall of sound band - especially driving in the car at night with the stereo blasting and the windows down.
They have deep thoughts in the subject matter I know. Strong songwriting too
