Generally the attitude I've seen towards this band, or something like Burzum, is this: like it, or you're not black metal. It is kind of like, liking Possessed if you're into death metal - simply because they were influential in said genre. It isn't metal to hate Possessed. Hence the kvlt-kiddie phrase.

hail face paint!

First off, reread my post and you'll see that I said nothing regarding my personal feelings towards Darkthrone, or Burzum for that matter. I was simply asking you to expound upon why you feel that way. Yes, in the beginning Darkthrone were pretty good, especially since there wasn't such an oversaturation of the genre at the time. Since then, there have been an infinite number of copycats, love them or hate them, but there have also been a number of original and unique bands. Blut Aus Nord, Leviathan/Lurker of Chalice, Xasthur and some more are my personal favorites and I understand that some may not like them. That's cool, that's their personal preference. To me, it has nothing to do with, as you said, "like it, or you're not black metal". I'm sure you've met your fair share of morons who act like this, and therefore give the rest of us a bad image, but don't think that we're all the same. And I understand also what you mean about Possessed, considering I never really cared for them either. Again, I was not attacking you, though I may have been a little too blunt, just simply trying to understand another person's opinion.
