This list is objective; the aforementioned hierarchy of album qualities is absolute and any challenges to the order or contents of the following declension will be discarded as the defunct whining of n00bery.

1) Gorgoroth - Antichrist
2) Marduk - Those of the Unlight
3) Immortal - Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism
4) Dimmu Borgir - Enthrone Darkness Triumphant fuck you I SAID FUCK YOU
5) Burzum - Self Titled
6) Ancient - Svartalvheim
7) Burzum - Filosofem
8) Absu - The Sun of Tiphareth
9) Old Man's Child - The Pagan Prosperity WHAT DID I JUST SAY

Black Metal / Oath

It's more satanic if you're gay because satan encourages sin and dick on dick is pretty much on par with church burning.

General discussion / The Slam vs. Deathcore analysis thread
« on: July 02, 2016, 04:20:10 AM »
I want this settled for my own sanity, and I need the underground-underground's assistance. I am leaning toward a stance on this topic, but I'm not truly decided.

Is slam deathcore?
Is there good deathcore, and if so, is that good deathcore considered slam?
Are there differences between deathcore and slam that separate them into two different genres?
Should either be considered or be stricken from the book as heinous poseur metal?
Did Slam evolve from deathcore?

The general consensus around the web is that Devourment really honed slamming guitar by itself as a feature carrying its own genre.

Right away, I'm discarding this as deathcore. It's very slammy, and for the a significant part it's tolerable, but to me it sounds like they just perfected the deathcore sound. This does not ring of death metal to me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then we have this:

Which I feel is some of the best music ever fucking made.
This does not have the same feel to me as the above Devourment. This feels to me much more like brutal death and I don't get that "augh, tricked into deathcore" sensation out if it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here, we have "This is ok, but it's definitely deathcore." Given that it is slam. It sounds to me like goregrind with repeated palm muted breakdowns. It is slammy, it is not at all bad.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Let's look at the difference in deathcore breakdowns and slam breakdowns:


Core guitars, no doubt.
Core vocals, no doubt.
Pay attention to the pacing of the breakdown, no groove, chopped, stop-motion timing. Not to mention that aggravatingly stupid signature bass line with strings tuned so low that they don't actually form a note.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Decapitated. Not slam, but the breakdowns aren't low tuned garbage fagtrocities. Are these more common to slam than the Q string thumping?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Same. This is obviously slam, but it cannot be denied that it is brutal death metal and not core.

Black Metal / Behexen - The Poisonous Path
« on: June 14, 2016, 03:42:54 AM »
Yay!

Nightside Emanations really grew on me but it's good to see that they've somewhat reversed direction back to that raw pre- My Soul For His Glory sound.

Except for that one track that seems to have the same structure and chorus on every album which will never ever change.

Black Metal / Gorgoroth - Instinctus Bestialis
« on: June 14, 2016, 03:28:47 AM »
This album is getting an obscene amount of flak and I can't even begin to understand why, except that it's their newest release and a wave of 'OLDER IS BETTER' always follows. I think it's the best thing they've released since Antichrist. It takes everything that was good about Ad Majorem and added it to most of what was good about Twilight. I still prefer Gaahl's vocals to Pest's, but whoever this new guy is, he's not too bad.

Black Metal / Revelation's Hammer

If you like Dark Funeral then you'll like Revelation's Hammer, because it's clear that this guy is ripping them off.

In a good way.

If you haven't heard of these guys, you are welcome. Their vocalist is also one of the most amazing oil on canvas painters in the world, and he works as a tattoo artist in Denver.
