    Try this Suut:

    Forefather are a black metal infuenced band with a lot of varied musical abilities that may surprise and challenge the assumptions and stereotypes you just expressed. Hugely based on Anglo-Saxon culture, and not just in lyrical content but also in musical style (particularly in terms of the scales used).

    Also... check out this sample from Storm, a Norwegian supergroup comprising of members of pioneer black metal bands, although Storm has a different approach.

    There actually is a genre called 'noise', and it makes Black Metal seem highly easy on the ears ;-p

    AW: Black Metal

    Absurd, Surturs Lohe, Amon Amarth, Ulfhethnar, Projekt Schattenreich, Grand Belial's Key and Ulver are some good black metal bands that I like.

Anyway, I don't believe for a second either that you have to listen to black metal to get in touch with our ancestors. There are plenty of other genres that do it for me (post-rock, ambient, psychedelic rock, etc).
    I can understand the problem, no matter how much I listen, I've never much liked Burzum myself, though I am a ''fan'' of the persona of Varg Vikernes.

    Re: Black Metal

    Black Metal is partly my lifestyle since a long time.
    I'm collecting LP's, Demo tapes, CD's tough, costs alot of money, but im addicted.
    Got myself a Black Metal Band (Me and a friend) themtically singing mostly about the world wars with non-political views, mostly concerning the topics of Misery, Death, Sadness, Corruption etc.

    To be honest, the most people are much into norwegian black metal, there's some "Norway-Hype" going on. People start to say crap like that Norway would be the land of black metal, and its roots and would have the best bands which is false.

    @Oswiu

    If you need some good examples and a crash-course, just contact me.


    @Nordic Power

    What the... Absurd, Amon Amarth and Surturs Lohe is not Black Metal at all. Please stop writing such false categorizations.

    Absurd and to a lesser extend Surturs Lohe are both black metal. Amon Amarth obviously are melodic death metal, and not black metal.

    While Absurd and Surturs Lohe are both melodic and folky, that does not exclude them from the classification of black metal.

    My own black metal reccomendations include:
    Wotanorden
    Pantheon
    Operation Winter Mist
    Deströyer 666
    Weakling
    Allfather
    Axis of Advance
    Sombre Chemin
    Ad Hominem
    Alcest
    Peste Noire
    Odal
    Hirilorn
    Inquisition
    Geimhre
    Blut aus Nord
    December Wolves

    It is evident that Amon Amarth is not Black Metal at all, and that Surtur's Lohe is more than pushing the envelope...

    ...Absurd however I still have done as some kind of BM. It is not folky enough to be Folk Metal proper, not rocky enough to be RAC, not harsh enough to be BM proper...in style I'd place them somewhere in between the three, probably still just fitting into the "BM corner"...even though it's nowhere near the "real Stuff"...still like it, though.

    While Absurd and Surturs Lohe are both melodic and folky, that does not exclude them from the classification of black metal.
    Indeed. If anyone's listened to Sig:Ar:Tyr, that officially classifies as "Acoustic Folk Black Metal", for the rhythm and arrangements...even though musically I would place it into the "Neofolk" category...

    Operation Winter Mist
    Good to see someone else knows and likes them. Good band and the musicians are good guys, loosely in contact via religious stances with the guitarist.

    Black Metal is not only about the "sound". It's about the lyrics at first!
    Old Absurd Recordings like "Eternal Winter" could be counted to black metal.
    But Surturs Lohe is not black metal just because it "sounds" like that.
    So please stop spreading false informations before more people start to believe this.
    If you say that Surturs Lohe is Black Metal. Then i can also say that Britney Spears makes Grindcore.



    My own black metal reccomendations include:
    At least the bands you've listed are black metal, except Pantheon and Wotanorden which are NS-Black Metal.


    At the rest, i agree with Sigurd Eirikson

    Concerning this one - I know it isn't Grindcore, but have you heard of Counterforce? How's that for Britney being Metal?

    OWM are indeed a glorious band, and a class act to boot. I was at one of their shows last year, and had the opportunity to 'declare total war' during Frostbitten Northern War. Best concert that I've ever been to.

    While Black Metal orginally referred to bands with satanic and anti-christian lyrics, the term is no longer defined in such a narrow way. While lyrics and aesthetic play a signficant role in a black metal band, they do not alone define it. If that were the case bands with black metal lyrics and aesthetics, such as Immolation and Deicide, would be classified as black metal. Obviously, both Immolation and Deicide are death metal bands.
    Surturs Lohe are folky and upbeat, and viking/black metal would probably be a better classification for them, but that hardly makes them comparable to pop music. To say that they are not black metal even though they bear a sonic resemblance black metal bands is poor reasoning; musical genres are defined by how they sound, not their lyrical content. If this were the case, Emperor would be considered borderline black metal even on In the Nightside Eclipse, as the lyrics are mostly not Satanic or Anti-christian in content.
