Guitar riffs churned from the depths of hell. Grim vocals emitted from blistered throats. Blasting drums ordering the troops to battle. Distorted bass thundering below. This is a thread for all things raw, ugly, and dark.
Fans of first wave black metal (Venom, Celtic Frost), black/speed/thrash (Toxic Holocaust, Midnight), blackened thrash (Skeletonwitch, Destroyer 666), blackened death (Goatwhore, Crionics), blackened crust (Iskra, Infernal Stronghold), and Japanese street (Abigail, Sabbat) can find peers here. A place to gather for those who love Bathory, Hellhammer, Sarcófago, or the metal scenes in Brazil and Japan.
Discussion of 2nd wave black metal, "3rd wave black metal," atmospheric black metal, suicidal black metal, NSBM, or other forms of black metal is accepted. However, the angry and raw varieties are the ones to be focused on, especially those that aren't pure black metal, but rather blackened other forms. This is a place for ripping guitar riffs and demon-belched vocals, not synths and existentialism.
This is not a refuge for symphonic black metal, dark ambient, "blackened" metalcore, the Metallica song by the same name, or anything you've seen on MTV (well, aside of Goatwhore).
So spew your Satanic ramblings, this is the place for it.
