Dillinger Escape Plan is moron music. Their like Opeth. Composition means nothing to these idiots.

Man, who cares about the so called "death" of Black Metal. I'm not worried about saving some kind of "scene", I just want to discover good music, regardless of genre. Let Black Metals' corpse rest in peace.

Sorry but anyone who isn't impressed with "Dimension Hatross", especially considering the year it came out, is not very bright.

"The paradigmatic black metal album for me will always remain "Transilvanian Hunger." No other album, through aesthetics or otherwise, better evokes that which can be called a qualitative definition of the black metal style."

I agree. ITNE sounds quite pompous at times. I still enjoy the album though.

Well now that I think about it, I guess half of Det Som Engang Var is ambient as well  :-[

I would then keep HLTO and add Beherits' Drawing Down the Moon.

I'm basically in agreement with Prozak, although I would replace Filosofem with Det Som Engang Var. The second half of Filosofem is Dark Ambient.

"Gorgut's Obscura is a direction nobody has ever bothered expanding upon, to the best of my knowledge."

It hasn't been expanded upon because 99% of bands don't know how to structure music. Many bands play a zillion riffs on all kinds of time signatures, but the end result is a mess of confusion.

Anyone who wants to learn how to structure complicated music should go to guitar.com and check out the Gorguts videos.

That's right. It's not to say that other U.S. Black Metal bands aren't good, I just don't think they've been any better than what Von was doing back in the late 80's.

Demoncy are an excellent band, as is Averse Sefira. But I think the latter band is way overrated. Their good, for sure, but I think because one of their members is good friends with Prozak (at least it seems that way), they tend to become overhyped by this website.

By the way, what are your opinions on Darkthrones' "Goatlord"?

I think it's their fourth best album behind TH, UAFM, and SJ. The shitty production gives the album a very cold, sterile atmosphere.

"Von was an American joke band formed in the interim between black metal's first and second waves, playing music about as minimalistic as one could get. Clichés aside, the music is surprisingly tolerable and does provide an atmosphere formulated out of primitivism. Gutteral vocals can be found instead of the usual rasp used in black metal; supposedly an Autopsy member was part of the band."

Sorta sad that the best Black Metal to have ever come out of the U.S. was from a Joke Band.  :-[

Flamenco music. Mid-80's Paco De Lucia and Tomatito.

I actually think that Noise is the most extreme form of music. And not just because of it's aesthetics. Noise that is actually structured of course is not noise at all, and when understood is really amazing. I am thinking of stuff like Null, and a few of the Merzbow releases.

I like these guys, but their a bit overrated. Anyway, that song is ok.

I saw them play here in San Francisco. It's basically their "greatest hits" tour, which is fine with me. But I too was dissapointed that only one song was played from album "B".

They haven't lost much of anything since their earlier days. Their as tight and focused as ever. They could play those songs in their sleep.

Bash Morbid Angels' last few albums, or David Vincents' fetish for tight leather all you want, but their still the best Death Metal band we've ever seen. I for one look forward to their next release and think they will come out with something very good.

Mortems' "Decomposed by Possesion" is the best metal album to have come out of South America. It's not the most influential album as it's an older release, but it's basically the culmination of all that is good from the South American scene. It's a pretty underrated album as well. Only Prozak and a few others have reviews on the album.

Not surprisingly, many underrated albums are from outside the U.S. and Europe. I will add the following:

Cenotaph - Riding our Black Oceans, Epic Rites
All releases from The Chasm
Xibalba - Ah Dzam Poop Ek
