Whether people like that early Darkthrone stuff or not is irrelevant. The fact is it was really the first time in metal that the poor quality was the reason something was hyped. They were actively trying to be bad. ...but of course it wasn't shit if you went along with the storyline.

I fucking loved Soulside so when I went into our local metal shop in town and was told the new Darkthrone was in I was fucking well up for it. I believe 'What the fuck is this shit?' were my words when I was handed the thing and looked at the cover...

Do you say the same thing about "noise" bands as well?? I always thought being a "metal head" was all about embracing musical forms that the average listener would approach with disdain and being open minded.

Reminds me of remarks made by that utter cockfuck pretender, Dani Filth, when handed a Wolf Eyes cd.

Embrace the abnormal.

I've never listened to 'noise' bands, as you put it. I'd never heard the Darkthrone demos, which were actually more in line with what they would become, so, to a degree, Soulside (and to a lesser extent, Goatlord) were 'out-of-character' for them. I'm not a black metal fan in general, so once I was confronted with a black-and-white cover with some cunt in make-up I was a bit 'What the fuck?'.
Doesn't change the fact that Soulside Journey is a DM classic. I just couldn't really give a monkey's about anything after that.

Really?

Do you think so? I would have thought that wouldn't really ring true in general.

Metal tends to be small-minded and closeted. This forum having J/K-pop fans long before Babymetal and being in common with noise/PE forums being very unusual.

I have to say, I have never found this to be true. I was closed minded for periods of my youth, but overall, I'd contend that metal heads are far more broadened out than most others. We are CONSTANTLY listening to other people's music because that's what's most prominent, but most people can't even stomach to have more extreme music in their ears for even a little bit.

Recently, I got a job nudge that allowed me to customize some space with my own tunes. I can't even play something as innocuous as CLUTCH or COC without someone coming through and turning it down, or off or otherwise bitching about wanting to hear something else. Not for 10 minutes. Yet, these same people are forever rocking country music or something we've all heard a thousand times over. I never complain and I never "turn that shit off" those guys because I can just listen to it and not let it get to me. Enjoy much of it, even. That attitude does NOT go both ways when it comes to Metal in general. Just from a tolerance standpoint, metalists are far more forgiving about other people's tastes.

Thank you. I feel a bit less insane now. ;)

I've said "What the fuck is this shit?" repeatedly over the years. It's not to do with being open or closed minded. It's about having a bit of quality control. You expect music to progress, not regress. Albums I've said this to:

Metallica - Metallica
Countdown To Extinction - Megadeth
The Ritual - Testament
Cuatro - Flotsam & Jetsam
Far Beyond Driven - Pantera
Set The World On Fire - Annihilator
Heartwork - Carcass
To Ride, Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth - Entombed
Digimortal - Fear Factory
Pink Bubbles Go Ape - Helloween (followed by a double "What the fucking fuck?" with Chameleon)
The Burning Red - Machine Head
Roots - Sepultura
Love Is For Suckers - Twisted Sister
Obnoxious - Acid Reign
