    I agree with him. Sepultura were first and foremost a thrash band - and harsh vocals do not a death metal band make, there's more to it than that. I suppose I can concede that there are elements of DM in their music but no more than that - it's analagous to calling Kreator a death metal band because they had harsh vocals - essentially, thrash + harsh vocals =/= death metal.

    Agree to disagree.

    Edited:

    Death's Scream Bloody Gore and Possessed's Seven Churches has more developed sound and you can't really compare them with Morbid Saint and Demolition Hammer.They are in this vague line between Thrash and Death.(more towards thrash)

    More like Proto-Death metal,well at least to me. I still call it Thrash

    1. Deathspell Omega - Paracletus
    2. Månegarm - Nordstjärnans Tidsålder
    3. Dissection - The Somberlain
    4. Silencer - Death, Pierce Me

    That Deathspell Omega album is seriously insanity. Imagine a really techy jazz guitarist that suddenly decides to play with a really techy black metal drummer, and the guitarist tries to keep up with the black metal drumming while the drummer tries to keep up with the jazz guitaring.

    Yep, it's fucking incredible.

    black metal is worlds apart from the flavour of thrash/sludge.

    It's atmosphere yes, but it's more about expressing someone's inner demon. That's my take on it anyway :-)

    Yeah but that's a blunt generalisation that people make. Metal in general has been seen to be "Satanic", so it's better to forget about that part.

    Paganism is considered to be part of the occult by popular society.

    That's what I mainly meant when I said occult.

    Satanic beliefs are often confused with pagan beliefs by most people.

    have you seen this? pretty good documentary, built mostly around interviews with Fenriz of Darkthrone, and Varg, while he's in prison. it explains that whole scene pretty well.
    varg's whole explanation of his reasons for the arson and Fenriz's little description of "Norwegian Identity" are pretty awesome.

    but yes Burzum is definitely very spiritual music : >

    or at least, that's how it was marketed. If you listen to a lot of black metal you often find the same kind of escapist romanticism, generally about the pagan past or fantasy scenarios. Just look at Immortal - they write almost exlusively about the fictional realm of Blashrykh, which is based on the feeling of isolation they felt in their home-town when they decided to form the band.

    What I also find quite amusing is that most black metal is inherently atmospheric, so i've always found that label particularly pointless.

    On the topic of Varg Vikernes, I think we can all agree he's a pretty interesting figure - I've read a lot of his online documents and certainly he's intelligent, and definitely not insane. A lot of what he writes is very interesting (despite some misguided viewpoints of varying degrees)

    That's really the only Marduk album I've listened to. I checked out Wormwood, and while it wasn't bad, it didn't do a whole lot for me.
    But Heaven Shall Burn...When We Are Gathered is just goddamned intense.
    And it's the only black metal album that I really enjoy these days. The rest just don't appeal to me much anymore, although Burzum's Fallen was nice.

    I would say that atmospheric black metal and sludge are similar in a way though, both are heavily involved with post-metal which is very atmospheric.
