Why Do You Like Black Metal?

So like the title says....why?
1Darkthrone
Transilvanian Hunger


Production. At first it sounds like shit and in reality it is shitty production but if you stop looking at it 1 dimensionally you will find it to be a beautiful tool that helps encapsulate the atmosphere. Nowadays the buzz of Burzum's rawness is pure bliss.
2Immortal
Pure Holocaust


Lyrics. Before I delved into the underworld of BM I didn't know of any band that had such evil, shadowy lyrics. As a youngster and even to today I love them. The holocaust has just begun Valleys about a thousands of coffins Watching the death of a sun Stand in the fog with so cold a heart
3Gorgoroth
Pentagram


Image. The first time I saw a band pic of Immortal I lol'ed. Actually I still lol but im sure Immortal laughs at themselves all the time. Regardless I love the corpsepaint, I love the symbols, and I love the eternally absurd angry faces. This is just another way to capture the essence of black metal, another form of artistry.
4Burzum
Hvis lyset tar oss


Vocals. Getting into the vox is just like getting into the production. After a while you'll come to love it or you'll just never like it. The vocals are like nothing ive ever heard. I honestly never knew someone could screech like a banshee out of hell or a man being tortured and maimed.
5Mayhem
Deathcrush


Riffs. Man, the riffs are so fucking cold, so fucking krieg, so fucking true. That's all I really need to say about that.
6 Paysage d'Hiver
Paysage d'Hiver


Atmosphere. The atmosphere that ambient bm bands like Paysage d'Hiver create bring me to a world glacial and frost-bitten. It just feels so good. I can practically hear the voice of the frozen winds, its like im walking through it, experiencing the sub freezing terrain of Norwegian forests.

But looking past the music sonically there are alot of reasons why I got into black metal. Possibly the main reason is that its an escape. As a youngster I sought refuge in black metal. I had a troubling childhood and black metal marked the way I felt, finally I had found someone or something that felt the same way I did.
8Blasphemy
Fallen Angel of Doom


I was rebellious when I was younger. I hated my father and didnt give a fuck about anything least of all school. Usually I spent my time breaking shit and smoking pot. And why I loved black metal was because it was a rebellious form of music itself. It was the musical bane of society and that's how I felt.
9Celtic Frost
Monotheist
10Craft
Terror Propaganda - Second Black Metal Attack


It's angry music and Im an angry individual.
