Didn't find a "most awful photos" thread, so I'll put this in here.
I'm sure a lot of you will remember the horrible cyber/goth trend fashion in late 90s/early 2000s (post) black metal, I think that atrocious era deserves a visual memorial as a warning for the future generations:



Forlorn

Tidfall

Malignant Eternal

Hades (Almighty)

The Kovenant

Tried to upload a Shepherds and Hounds of Hell era Obtained Enslavement photo as well, but it didn't work out.

God what an awful era. However The Crystal Palace by Forlorn is pretty damn good in my opinion.

Agree, it may be cheesy and dated, but I still like that first Forlorn album (and the EP as well).

I like Windir, but this is just wrong.



But back on topic. A good one of Valfar.

Yeah black metal aesthetics took a pretty huge dive for the worse around late 90s. I guess the coming of the new millennium had most bands reaching for a new look and all of a sudden everyone was as if from the future and ready for the digital revolution. Rebel Extravaganza was a pretty big violator. Covers were already getting mostly shitty Photoshop treatments and I swear Lord Ahriman was getting fatter and fatter. Bad time for metal music, wasn't it.

Mesh longsleeve shirts. I will not forget.

The imagery/band appearance for Rebel Extravaganza was nowhere near as awful as anything pictured above. And, that album is fucking deadly. Their most abrasive and vicious material without a doubt.

Sure the album was just fine, considering how it survived the dreaded modernization which was the ongoing trend at the time. I didn't immediately like it because I was still hung up on Nemesis Divina. The covers and particularly Filthgrinder did not connect with me as black metal the way I knew it. It eventually grew.

Dodheimsgard's 666 International was another one I left in the record store many, many times. Many times.

I think it happened because everyone became fed up with the forest/medieval fetish of the previous years. Bands did their best to avoid any signs of the modern world both in imagery and lyrics and then often the very same individuals indulged in cheesy cyberpunk fashion and photo sessions in urban environment a couple of years later. A good example would be Ulver.

It's almost as if they got kicks from breaking their own taboos. I can somehow understand that, because I had a similar phase, although years later. Cut my hair, started wearing bright clothes to show off how untrue I am, listened to all kinds of music I ignored before, etc. Now I have my hair back, I still wear band shirts, but I listen to anything I like without caring about the context. I guess I'm finally adult Laughing Seems like the metal scene also went through its own process of growing up and re-discovering its roots.

The whole "fuck you I listen to black metal" thing was in retrospect an illuminating growing experience. When you basically shut yourself from most things except the few integral ones and keep it that way for a few years, you'll most likely never want to go back to being that person again afterwards, but the process has the capacity to make you more receptive and open minded. I mean this kind of music does require a fair amount of open mindedness in itself, because it simply breaks so many of the conventions of what is considered musical.

I knew a guy who once said he only listened to true black metal. He had differentiated between true and regular (?) black metal, apparently. Even as teenagers, it sounded unnecessarily restricted to me. I heard he lost interest in black metal a couple of years later as if it was never even there. As long as you don't absolutely exhaust yourself, it is in no way a requirement to give up something in order to take in something new.

That being said, old still reigns over new!

Yeah, when I discovered 2nd wave BM as a phenomenon, I almost didn't listen to anything else at all, that super-restricted mentality was typical for it. I can imagine how much of a poser kid I was in the eyes of older guys, haha.
I remember reading in an interview with Abigor, when they were asked about their favourite music, the answer was something like "We like 3rd & the Mortal and Dead Can Dance, otherwise we listen ONLY to black metal!" Very Happy

It felt like a huge adventure when I got a bit older and started discovering all kinds of music genres. Both extremes shaped me in the end, now I just keep listening to my old favourites and I already know what I like from other areas of music, not doing much "research" anymore.

Rebel Extravaganza is the only Satyricon album I've ever really enjoyed. Even the debut and Shadowthrone don't really do it for me. The atmosphere is there but the songwriting is not.
