I'm not sure if the link to this article, or the article itself has already been posted; I even have a sneaking suspicion that someone registered at this forum wrote the piece presented (there was a lack of information about the writer available on the internet). Anyway, here is the link:http://www.mcgilldaily.com/view.php?aid=6168
The Article is called "Everything You Wanted to Know About Black Metal but Were too Afraid to Ask" by a writer named Behrang Farshi. It is basically well-known information here, but I know that it has been asked before if outside sources would ever take an intelligent, notified glance at black metal. If I'm not mistaken about the nature of this writer than that educated glance is exactly what this article provides, and even if not then at least it is presented in a format that may carry some validity to the academic world.
