Cradle and Dimmu have always been two of my favorite bands and they still are. Don't really care what anyone has to say about that haha.

Like you said though, they exposed black metal to the mainstream and a lot of people didn't like that (obviously). Fuck it though.

'it's rather hypocritical when almost every black metal band looks completely ridiculous to some degree lol.'

most modern bm bands (and a lot of the older ones too) don't use corpse paint or anything like that so I'm not sure what you're referring too

Speaking of Cradle, I just read that their old bassist/guitarist Charles Hedger is playing with Mayhem now. Don't know if that's old news or what, but it's pretty cool. Also just read that a new Mayhem album is supposed to be in the works for next year. Hopefully that's true.

"it's rather hypocritical when almost every black metal band looks completely ridiculous to some degree lol."
Stereotypical BM and big scene acts, yes. Look at local scenes, nobody wears corpse paint. Some acts might incorporate armor or show-pieces like that but that's also rare. (I've rarely ever seen a local BM band here doing any of this btw)

"just because they take it step further past routine corpse paint and spiked armbands doesn't warrant hate."
Ouch, no - not really. The hate comes from them overusing orchestration, mostly being pretty bad live and generally "being overproduced" - whether the latter is the case is arguable. Also, because they're basically and I quote "Black Metal's pop equivalents". As for CoF, a lot of people dislike the vocals and from what I gathered his vocals are awful live.


Also, who the fuck still cares about Gorgoroth? The band was always mediocre to average at best. And Behemoth hasn't done anything Black Metal since Sventevith, Idk about the U.S. but Behemoth also definitely count as mainstream metal over here.

NEW TREND?

I hope you were being ironic, or there are more way bigger discrepancies between Europe and the U.S. than I intially thought.

Uhm, it's pretty oldschool quite frankly. It actually started with Thrash in the 80s when Thrashers were running around in normal torn apart jeans jackets and the fans some time later picked up sewing patches onto them. It's been around for decades here and you aren't really considered a real metalhead here without some form of "Kutte" (which is the word for those things here)

It's just part of the scene, maaaaan!

Well, duh. That's why they call it 'uniform'. Just like people running around in camo pants, boots and bandshirts.

Of course it's retarded and completely infantile on some level.
