Welcome To The 2nd Annual Black Metal History Month
We had so much fun doing it last year, we're back for round two. All this month, we will be covering black metal here on Metal Injection with articles on essential black metal listening, some awesome lists and some killer videos. While we put the finishing touches on some of the content, let's take a look back at what we learned last year:
We discussed a few essential black metal albums, that every troo fan needs in their collection including WEAKLING'sDead as Dreams, BURZUM's Hvis Lyset Tar Oss, DARKTHRONE's A Blaze in the Northern Sky, IMMORTAL's Pure Holocaust, and we give tip of our cap to the founders of black metal, VENOM.
We also got some black metal themed lists together, the most controversial of which was the Top 10 Worst Crimes Committed by Black Metal Musicians, featuring a brutal recollection of how some black metal musicians take things a bit too far. We also clue you in on the Top 10 New Black Metal Bands You Should Know, and lighten up the mood a bit with the Top 10 Silliest Black Metal Videos.
In the reviews department, we spotlighted Lords of Chaos, the definitely book on the rise of black metal and weattended an Immortal show.
Elsewhere on the site, we dedicated an entire episode of The FiX to our favorite black metal videos and Frank posted a new edition of his audio podcast, Heavy Metal Happy Hour, featuring a killer black metal playlist.
