if it looks good. go for it. it should be an extra, coming after the music. only pay attention to the design of your facepaint once youve made your music how you want it

Not really albums, but bands that I have either discovered or started listening to more recently include:

Harakiri for the Sky
Make a Change... Kill Yourself
Den Saakaldte (specifically their new album)
Hanging Garden

obviously you can tell that most of what I've been getting into lately is depressive black metal. :P
Photophobia specifically has become one of my very favorites. one of the members is the mighty U. Morbid. (also the sole member behind Unjoy)

Recently wrote a review on Grue's debut album.

Also loving the Heretic Cult Redeemer debut.

I also have been listening to a lot of Polish, Slovakian, and Russian bands that i recently found on a dead blog that had some demos of these bands uploaded.

some people say black metal doesn't work in a live setting, or at least that it works but it changes the dynamic of the music by sharing it with a crowd as opposed to listening alone.

I thought this too until I saw Agalloch. The atmosphere and eerie sound doesn't sound like something that could be re-produced in a live setting, but oh my, I was wrong. Not only did the music had the same feel, it was intensified by the volume and setting that the ones performing the music were right in front of you.

this is from the show i went to

Some greek bands I've discovered over the past year that I'd like to throw out for possible future discussion: Heretic Cult Redeemer, Theosis, Dodsferd, etc. Heretic Cult Redeemer has definitely been a favorite of mine lately. you can listen to their debut album here: I'd highly recommend it.

Are you fucking kidding me? O.o I LOVE going to concerts! Especially black metal ones or tours that have one or two black metal bands! I go to A LOT of gigs, but here are some of the more recent black metal ones I've been to during the past two years.....some of them aren't 100% black metal but are mostly. Unfortunately, full black metal tours are rare here in the states, usually its just like....a death metal tour that happens to have a black metal band as one of the openers.

Melechesh/Vreid/Lightning Swords of Death/Reign of Lies

Behemoth/Watain/In Solitude/The Devil's Blood


Watain/In Solitude/cant remember the other band




Ceremonial Castings twice


And there is one (so far) upcoming gig I'm going to: Behemoth/Goatwhore/1349/Inquisition/Black Crown Initiate

I really with black metal bands would do full US tours more often. I still haven't seen some of the HUGE bands like Immortal, Gorgoroth, Enthroned, Naglfar, Dark Fortress, Angantyr, etc. The only exception would be Enslaved because they've played in Seattle several times during the past two years and I always have something going on that makes me unable to go (not happy about that btw). Because of where I live, I always get asked if I've seen Wolves in the Throne Room and/or Sunn O))) because they're both from here and the answer is no because they only ever play in 21+ venues (I'm currently 19). Sunn O))) is one of the bands that I REALLY want to see live, so I'm hoping they don't stop doing live shows by the time I'm old enough to go see them.

Oh trust me, the American black metal scene is anything but small. The problem is that it's very underground and most of the fans aren't online and shit, so it's not as easy to notice if you don't live here. But if you go to a black metal show, especially in Seattle and Portland, there will be quite a few people. This has caused a lot of well-known black metal (not all pure black metal) bands to come out of Washington and Oregon like Wolves in the Throne Room, Agalloch, Ceremonial Castings, Thy Emptiness, Barrowlands. Washington also has a primarily black metal record label that you may have heard of, Moribund Records ( that has been the home of Xasthur, Arckanum, Azaghal, Bleeding Fist, Behexen, Dodsferd, Fear of Eternity, Horna, Judas Iscariot, and a whole bunch of other names you've heard before.

If you haven't heard Ceremonial Castings, here's my favorite song by them:

I mixed/produced it in Audacity. I used a Tascam GT-R1 to record the bass and most of the guitar. I used mics hooked up to a digital recorder (both borrowed from a local pub) to record the drums, and I used a cheap mic hooked up to the Tascam to record vocals. Most of the more difficult acoustic guitar and drum parts were done by my friend in his basement. The big deal to ME with this album was where I recorded it. I live in western Washington state, east of seattle. So I'm right in the Cascade Mountains in the middle of nowhere in the forest. So i recorded different parts in different places. Like the vocals and bass were recorded in an old abandoned wooden shed down the road from where I live, and I recorded the guitars outside where the forest was most dense. I think i recorded some of the vocals outside too but i dont remember xD
