You can say it's crap, but you're in the same territory as, to borrow BrokenCrimson's apt term, trad bitches when you take that line to music. Looking down on somebody for their taste is idiotic and would ideally be beneath us. Bands I dislike and don't respect I ignore.



Man, I wasn't looking down on anyone, you know? I said this "I dont know how COF is black metal, they are shit". If you look at my previous posts I even said to MyOwn that "I don't care if you listen to them man, I just don't like them." Check it out, it's just when the whole argument started, if you don't belive it.

Have you ever heard any "nice" melodies in Mayhem or that stuff. I take that to be Black Metal. I like earlier Cradle of Filth but it's not bm in my opinion. I could of got worse by saying that true black metal has Satanic lyrics but that includes Dimmu Borgir and some Death metal bands. If in someone elses opinion CoF are bm then that's fine but they shouldn't go around trying to convince other people it is!

I'm dumb? One of the worst things anyone could do is to let someone's words damage them. You say I attacked because I called you a cunt. How sad that I called you a giant walking pussy affected you so much. I am if I'm a asshole when it comes to ignorance, but I am. But like I said, you shouldn't let things get to you. How the hell did you survive high school?

I saw what you said. You didn't give arguments for why you dislike the music, you simply toed the metalhead line that anyone who likes these bands has much worse taste than somebody able to appreciate grindcore. You're slagging the fans instead of the music, which is stupid and pointless. I don't like either Cradle of Filth or Mudvayne. If asked, I'll say what it is about their music that doesn't work for me. I won't rip on somebody if the music does work for them. I haven't since I was first getting into metal in middle school, and I was an idiot in middle school. I'm not saying you're an idiot like I feel I was; you're just at an apogee of metalness that assigns some non-musical value to taste. You wouldn't have gotten into an argument if you'd just said you don't like Cradle but don't give two shits if the next guy does. At most you'd have found yourself in a discussion.

MyOwnSavior: Chill out. You're not being much better at this point.

Someone should suggest that smiley to nomad. No harm done.

More on topic: I consider Cradle of Filth black metal. Perhaps not a particularly good example of it, but one which at least does the genre the service of occasionally drawing attention to it without having to kill anybody. A lot of people get into the better black metal acts (whatever they may be) through the accessible Cradle of Filth doorway. They do and say extremely stupid things, but that seems to be par for the course in metal. Or bands in general.

bleh, and of course i cant be frostbitten because this is australia. hence my location


???

Australia has spawned some of the most crushing black metal known to man. Bestial Warlust...Spear of Longinus. What about Astriaal (previously mentioned in the post)...Myrddraal...Portal (ridiculous enough to be considered bm)...Sadistik Exekution (maybe not bm)...

Location has nothing to do with writing black metal. One's environment may be good for inspiration, but it is just one of many sources for inspiration.

Marduk
Frozen Shadows
Bestial Warlust
Deathcrush / DMDS era Mayhem
Darkthrone*

*I only like Darkthrone's Total Death, Ravishing Grimness, and Sardonic Wrath, but they make up for the other albums. Hate Them is okay at times, too.

It was on the second or third page. It's not a big deal.
