Anyone hear what this guy did on guitar when he was a teenager? This is intense stuff. It's often very Death-y in regard to the backing tracks. It's too bad this guy ended up with ALS; he would have been top in the guitar world today.
I'm still blown away that he did this at age eighteen. Not to mention how he blew Marty Friedman off the cd on the Cacaphony releases.
I've heard many call this dud an Yngwie wanna be, but Becker was just Classical in his own, personal way.
Just my opinion, but this is a must have cd

a must-have?  ill have to hear it first then ill get it.

I read this post and I am saddened that you have crated a double edge sword out of Black Metal. It seems that you are claiming that if a new black metal band does not sound like the progenitors of this genre, the music is uninspired and/or lacks the attitude but if they do then they are wana-be bands but keep in mind all things evolve. I don’t think anyone who truly ever liked black metal and still does could agree, I think that most people only listen to what is served up by labels and don’t take the time to listen to enough underground music. It is all about the music and nothing else and those who would only down new music are about the scene, not the music and are generally referred to posers. the goth scene is still going and with one trip to Hot Topic you could be a goth god……..

what are you talking about?

I've felt the same way.. it seems there's not enough real inspiration in people these days, which is why those original bands I think were so special. They were drawing on something very real within themselves, while the modern bands are just making images of what the old bands did, they aren't getting at what they were really about.

I think black metal, as it was, has to end for this reason, that there will never be another Burzum or Immortal or Darkthrone. Whatever bands come along now that convey across a true sense of themselves will probably be something that seems very different and alien at first, much as black metal did when it began. Nevertheless, for pure enjoyment, I think there are still bands that make interesting music.

I just listened to Drudkh (posted on another thread) and I very much enjoyed them, it was a good listen. There were a few "underground" bands that I had heard as well that I liked alot at least as how they sounded. Sapthuran was one, and Huorn was the other. I'm not sure whats happened to them since, but I felt they made at least interesting music, something a little above the crowd. Oh and also that Averse Sefira album  Tetragrammatical Astygmata I thought was excellent, and that came out quite recently.

behemoths latest cd is good.

As popular as it may seem, I find that Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" still devours my mortal coil.  Minor keys do it everytime.

i like stu hamm's reendition of the piece.  its alll bass and is very cool.

>:(I'm sick to death of the countless threads moaning about how black metal is dead. Just accept it, listen to the greats and be thankful that the music exists at all. I find it unbelievably depressing every time people start talking about the death of BM. Just listen to classical music if you really want to be satisfied in the same way.

forget classical, what about pop-punk?

jk.  black metal is immortal, nuthin to worry about.
