    Loved his impressions of Halford and Mayhem :D

    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.

    Saapanael "My hair sets the trend of tmrw by doing it today"

    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.

    Travis The Dragon The dreamers may die, but the dreams live on.

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

    One of the most epic black metal choruses ever. Actually might be one of the best BM songs altogether. Along with Armada and Crown Of The Kings from this same album.
