I am mildly amused that you dislike this but recommend a band (recognising you intended to suggest one similar to MDB) who've actually named themselves after an MDB song (off a considerably less interesting album than this one as well). In other words, it comes across a bit strange that you'd dislike such a seminal doom band but be quite inclined towards groups who likely owe a great debt to MDB.
actually I don't like the band I recommended, but other people might since I found it similar to this, maybe me being nice and helpful didnt cross your mind?

Whoever dissed Venom, i'm not pointing any fingers(Altmer) Venom kick asss and that cheap shot was unnecessary and hurtful. This got a lot of buzz since yesterday, i'll see to lastfm to have this hopefully.

Venom are pretty shitty, tbh. Asides from their influence, their music sucks.

Black metal is a killer album, what, you don't like primal, thrashy stuff? I need speed and aggression, which doom does not have. I can let Saint Vitus and Candlemass slide because they fucking rule.

Not really. You can get speed and aggression far better than Venom have ever done.

^^^123. Yeah but when I listen to Black Metal I want to sacrifice virgins and burn down churches. Not many other albums make me want to do that.

the only experience I've had with venom was the new album, which sucked, and Sigh playing Black Metal live while a hot fucking japanese bikini woman swallowed candlewax and spit fire

"Black Metal" is pretty much an essential album for those into heavy metal so get it and don't be left out. It's some real satan saluting, horns protruding from skull kinda stuff. It's raw, and heavy, the way I like it.

This album is their high point. A Line of Deathless Kings was enjoyable too, imo, but I don't think any album has or will be as good as this one.

For some reason I have a feeling that the one coming out in a few months will be.
