In my opinion NED exceeded DSP. Euronymous might have put out incredible and timeless music, but there was never an ideological cohesion among the bands, the only purpose was releasing anti-trendy and dark, high quality music. NED existed to spread a more coherent message with the result of inspiring a whole swarm of individuals and bands, pointing them towards a more precise thing.


Norma Evangelium Diaboli realised Euronymous' dream. It's that simple.

I wish people today could behold this magnificent image and feel massive the impact it had upon its release. It is probably the single most copied album art in the history of black metal.


Come on, dude. I have to give you credit for creating the very few interesting topics in this board but please quit posting personal opinions as it were universal truths.

Also I hope I'm misunderstanding you because I don't think Euronymous dream was to release an album that started a trend in Black Metal and which is anyway nothing but the shadow of another one (DMDS, obv). He was way more ambitious than that.

This x 666.


You guys...

If anyone wants to trade this splendid abomnation of an album on LP I'm game.


even if i don't come back to that album often these days it's still very good. a tad bit too monotonous maybe if listened to the whole lp. what it may lack in variation it more than makes up in pitch black atmosphere and fierceness though. lyrics and presentation are excellent.

Voted Salvation, but Kruzifixxion comes close.

The first three tracks put me in a murderous mood, the remaining three feel a bit underwhelming.

I don't really see much difference between Kruzifixxion and VVVVE, in the sense that the former has a rawer recording than the latter, but the fury and chaos remain.

I think he was referring to having a label ideologically based on a certain type of Satanism, which Euronymous was actively promoting back in the days (though with a more naive approach). Imo we shouldn't give too much credit to trends, the majority of bands formed at the beginning of 90s were people who jumped on a bandwagon and imitators to different extents. That is the way things go, truly individual and outstanding bands/albums tend to attract a mass of followers, and the early 00s proved that even if records are limited to 100 copies that still happens.

That is exactly what I meant, and I think you are right about trends. Powerful music will be heard, admired, and copied.

i'd say both fury and chaos are increased considerably on wwe.
kruzifixxion is an album that's accessible right from the first listen. it's the logical continuation of 666 and very much a traditional bm album in the vein of darkthrone's uafm. wwe on the other hand is a different beast and so dense and complex that it took me many listens to really get into it. drakh's vocals were especially off-putting initially. today i consider it their masterpiece.

Drakh's screams in the beginning of The Last Wound rank among the most bone-chilling moments in black metal. He sounds absolutely horrifying.

I'd definitely appreciate some recommendations in that barbaric, belligerent side of CYFAWS-DPE Antaeus. The only thing that comes close and, obviously, surpasses them is the diamond of diamonds of Norwegian BM. Zyklon-B, that is. How perfect is the relentless drumming on De Principii...
I don't get Blood Libels, too clean for my taste. And Antaeus' latest opus was just lame to me, still I really enjoy their side on the Katharsis' split somehow. Cool death metal tune.

True. The scream in the beginning of Fist of the Northern Destroyer is good too.

Seconded. Can't get into Blood libels and the song on Katharsis split is good, dunno why they hate it so much.

Anyways here's a recommendation:

I voted for Kruzifixxion because it had the biggest impact on me. It still remains one of my favourites, can't find no flaws. Love the sound of it, it's like everything's on 11. Honorable mentinons would in no particular order be Casus Luciferi and VVorldVVithoutEnd. I just can't understand (well, I could guess) how you can dumb down your music as much as Watain have on the following albums and still stand behind it. Maybe it's just me but the riffs, melodies, whatever, are so well done on that album while the albums that followed to me mostly sound like power chord fests ľ a hyperbole, true, but I think you just can't compare. Casus Luciferi just sounds rabid.

Btw, does anyone have print screens of SMNNews messageboard thread where someone who apparently was very close to DSO wrote a lot of stuff about SMRC artwork etc. That link circulated here also a year or two ago.
A lot of interesting stuff there, that he ended up deleting, before someone restored them. And now the whole board is offline.
