Burzum- demo II (1991)

This second Burzum demo marked the crystalization Black Metal as a genre. This recording is low, muddy and the production quality is poor, all of which adds to the feeling. Many people don’t like the low recording, bitching and complaining… Which is cool. Some people like the clean radio sound and sitting down to pee.

Either way, this demo represents the moment when black metal emerges from the sub genre of death metal/ metal as a distinct separate genre with tremolo guitar riffs and shrieked vocals.

Random Black Metal Bandcamp; The Great Old Ones

Today we have a random Black Metal Bandcamp post about The Great Old Ones’ new album EOD; A Tale Of Dark Legacy which is based on a novella by H. P. Lovecraft.  In 2017 there isn’t a lot of new ground to cover in black metal. There has to be something more to an album or a band now a days besides for being straight “black metal” and basing the lyrics on a book doesn’t cut it.   The premesis is good, but not enough on its own.  At the end of the day a good gimic doesn’t make up for uninspired music even it it is played perfectly; 65%.
