Profanatica appeared on a 4-way split in 2008, "Trampling the Holy Faith."  I'd love to hear those 2 tracks if someone has them.

I believe his buddy also said they listened to Black Sabbath, drank whiskey, and sat in the garage.

on a side note, they also released a 20th anniversary edition of Nightside Eclipse with a re-mastered version and alternate mix version.  has anybody around these parts heard the alternate mix by chance?

Anybody have a system for listening to their music at 432?  I've heard it can be done with computer programs.  Has anybody explored this?

it's fine.  I don't think we have official rules, but just keep it to one thread and bump it every so often if you want to keep it alive.

Metal / Variations of Black Metal
« on: May 25, 2014, 11:45:55 AM »
I was going to write an ode to black metal but I think instead I'll pose a question, see what others say, and maybe weigh back in.  First of all I was thinking about the curiousness of how black metal, a truly elaborate and monumental art form, grew out of the grimy underground.  My first knowledge of "undergound" was punk/hardcore/grindcore, trashy shit like Black Flag, GG Allin, Napalm Death, Anal Cunt, mohawk-style punk, that kind of thing.  There are some diamonds in the rough but you get the idea.  It's kind of trashy.

Now, death metal and black metal both have roots in the trashy grime as well, and although death metal did rise to impressive heights with some albums, I think black metal soared the highest.

But here is the real question:  if something like Oath of Black Blood and Old Morning's Dawn can both be considered black metal, what is it that links this wide range of expression?  I think progression of techniques are part of it, but behind the sound, what is it that holds the variations of black metal together?
