    I love how Abbath is a totally stoner dude....just in corpse paint :p This is the song he's talking about in the beginning:

    Who knows Cobalt, from Colorado? The band is a duo. One guy makes all the music. And the other does the vocals.

    • Erik Wunder – all instruments
    • Charlie Fell – vocals

    I really like this song, from their latest album Slow Forever (2016). Very nice guitar riffs/rhythms. On this album the rhythms are not very black metallish, but the guitars and vocals sure do fit the picture. Enjoy! \m/

    This one is good too, especially from 3:22. Those riffs are fucking great.

    Hunt the Buffalo is exactly the sort of song title I'd expect from Colorado Black Metal.

    I heard Cobalt, just not the new album.

    I like this song a lot:

    Cheers. I'll check that song and album later. I figure you also might like War Metal a lot:

    A friend showed me a great documentary the other day. It's about one-man black metal projects led by severely depressed dudes. The Xasthur part is chilling. Be sure to watch all 3 parts.

    I used to listen to that stuff when I was little, especially Xasthur. There is a certain unique beauty to that kind of Black Metal but it gets boring at one point, imo. My biggest beef with BM in general is the awful production. I guess you'll need to be severely depressed yourself in order to fully enjoy Depressive Suicidal Black Metal. If nothing else, it is a cool scene - sinister and macabre.

    What, like 7? :D

    I'm not into depressive black metal either. Agreed, it gets predictable and boring. But when you're in a fitting mood it can be pretty immersive. BM production is a whole nother topic. I like when it's treated as art in itself and used to craft a certain atmosphere or channel raw power. My favourite examples of that are usually professionally produced albums made sound like this on purpose.

    9-13, I'd say.

    Nice, quite early for this kind of music. ;) I think I've barely touched any metal by 12 or so.

    By the way, I think my favourite DSBM song is this. Some genuinely nice melodies and haunting vocals. It sounds raw and atmospheric without sounding like crap in terms of audio quality.

    I just started listening to Rotting Christ and am absolutely loving it!
