Lol "Black Metal" isn't black metal.

Any best-of list of black metal that can include Craft is automatically a joke: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XuEeby_XjY

Candidate for most clueless post-1993 `black metal` band. Unintentionally funny.

The fact that there are plenty of people who would consider the original list to be reasonable says alot about why black metal is what it is nowadays.  The sad thing is that there is so much garbage being praised by so-called metal fans that it becomes extremely difficult for anything of real quality to get enough exposure.

In contrast with Europe, a lot of metal listeners in the states do not get exposed to black metal. So, it still remains a fairly unknown style beyond the experience of most, even as they attempt to define and classify in the category. The absence of Demoncy from the first list is unforgivable, if not also revealing. No Ildjarn is pretty much a declaration of war.

Satyricon = Montley Crue + Darkthrone
Cadle Of Filth = Guns n Roses + Dimmu Borgir
Venom = Motorhead + "Evil"

Venom was "Black Metal" back when the term didn't have meaning, but so was any band that wanted to label themselves as such. Much as how Metal lifers have adopted 'Hessian,' the Black Metal period took the name that was waiting for it.

Nitpicking aside, they're a solid Rock 'n Roll band.

That Decibel list is marginally better than expected from that awful magazine, but still pretty color-by-numbers.

See I dont know about that Othala. You might look at the better bands and albums on the list and think hey, maybe this isnt so bad, but the terrible albums confirm that whoever put the list together isnt taking quality into account at all. That makes even the great choices suspect.

The list is terrible and anyone who disagrees should be sent to the GULags.

I don't know trystero, this is better than anything Darkthrone has released since 1995.

lol brosephalopagus Craft is like... the prototypical black-metal-as-rock-music band. I know you are just taking a dig at Darkthrone but seriously, it is worse than Total Death.

Why people would take anything from Decibel seriously is beyond me.

Re: Decibel 100 best black metal albums

They definitely threw in a few bands (Cobalt, Nachtmystium, Ludicra, etc) just for hipster cred. Some of those albums are good (Aura Noir, Peste Noire, etc) but not worthy of a top 100.

All in all, about what I expected.

Well at least it's better than the article about Metal Archives where they whined about Between the Buried and Me not being on the site.

I don't know what to say.

I think Sorcier des glaces would make 100 best black metal albums btw.

Wasnt that Sergeant D? Those are joke articles arent they?
