Yes, actually. I was looking up random bands (I do that a lot) and I love it. I've never heard them mentioned before.

You don't hear them mentioned because it's assumed you already know them.

Well I hear Iron Maiden and Burzum mentioned all the time, and you're a false if you've never heard them. So your argument is invalid. Plus there aren't many black metal fans on here.

Well that's because Burzum and Iron Maiden are famous. Alcest is in that weird in between spot where they aren't famous but not obscure. Besides, Alcest is hardly black metal.

It's like semi-blackened post-rock. But I will say black metal to save time. And have you heard the new Fen?

Yeah it's not the same Fen quite obviously. Fucking last.fm recommendations.

And Alcest is quite good I'm glad I found out about them.

Oh you mean that band that Last.fm says is most similar to Alcest? Okay!

And I'm finding out that the French have some pretty damn good musical projects if you look in the right place.

Taxer, your a musical beast. I have never heard of these guys. I probably spend my free time reading things between: sports, games, movies, music equally. But don't discourage bands being announced because they are popular in various places. I enjoy the Axe flow

LLN is just a bunch of bedroom black metal with even more terrible production. It made black metal a joke.

Not really. The ambient stuff they produced is wonderful, and Belketre, Torgeist, and Brenozvorwhatever are great.

Some of the Vlad Tepes releases are also pretty cool. And for the record, Mutiilation is really, really good.

Not as bad as the previous example, but by no means is it anything worth noting. If I want to listen to black metal with bad quality, it might as well be good like Darkthrone or Bathory.

o i c wat u did thar


its just not what i think of as music. it is just....noise. talent is something that i think i cant replicate or surpass. i think (if i may say so) im a good photographer and none of you could just pick it up or do a better job than me
that kind of "black metal" i think i could bang out in a weekend. it just doesnt seem talented to me
