Yeah, I think Fhil has more or less nailed it. There're certain elements in black metal which are exactly the same sort of thing as Marilyn Manson fans cutting themselves and posting pictures of the scars all over the internet and thinking it's some sort of protest, even though the BM people in question would probably rather fellate Pat Robertson than admit this. (Or else they think that not sounding like a mallgoth band is somehow enough to escape accusations of behaving like one.) The line between the Anus.com guys and the Ville Valo obsessed 15-year-old girl is thinner than the former dare imagine.

If Dez Frrrfrrrrr had the integrity he claims he has, he'd have retired from music altogether a long time ago.

Don't stop posting in this thread Chantler!

Chantler is spot on. Bender started well, then lost the plot.

I was listening to Shining this morning, and I quite enjoyed it. Watain are enormously overrated. People who cut themselves are either ill and need help, or are massive poser twats and need slapping.

well, I haven't checked their music out until that article, and after doing so I have to say I really like Watain. And I'll take a can of Febreze with me to the gig, in case it gets a bit stinky :-D

I totally understand why people who like that brand of black metal are all over Watain, I would have totally dug them when I was 18-21.

I like Watain, I like their whole imagery and pseudo-mythology. Even their merch designs are good which is rare for a BM band (Though blatantly stolen from Biker Gang imagery most of it).

However they are nothing new, and they are pretty much a case of Dissection's New Clothes, but even they admit that vaguely in their interviews. Doesn't change them being absolute cunts who probably need a slap.

Watain are probably the best black metal band around at the moment.

I disagree. Deathspell Omega or Blut Aus Nord win that title by far.

never really got the Watain/Dissection thing. Dissection wrote far more melodic, catchy choons than Watain, and aren't really very BM at all; apart from being Swedish and having slightly unhinged vocalists i cannae see the comparison.

Watain are OK when in the mood, but the last album was very overhyped. As AMJ says, there are many superior BM acts out there.

Watain are nowhere near the best BM at the moment. Not even close. Their last album was boring as hell.

I thought Lawless Darkness was over hyped and over rated on my first spin.The second and third spin everything fell into place.

"...a back-alley beating or a HIV-ridden fix of polish smack."

That is definitely a line.


Right! I've read it...I still can't take them seriously, they'r blatantly doing an Akercocke on us surely? Except the Ak were twice as good.
