Here's another name to throw in the ring: Helheim from Bergen, Norway
Never heard of them before I saw them announced for HITS - they are referred to as viking black metal. I bought 2 of their albums in the past month - Yersinia Pestis from 2003 and Kaoskult from 2008 (they've got a bunch - been around since 1992!) I like both VERY much - here's a song called Northern Forces from Kaoskult http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxE8xwRI ... ata_player
That Watain story is humorous the way you told it - The friend you're referring to is Kent right? I seem to remember him talking about that gig. For the record - I think I draw the line at the idea of smelling rotting animals - a bit too
Yea, SotM tour here with Moonspell. Saw them down Jaxx and it was awesome though most people didn't know who they were (fair enough). Lucifer Speaks At the show I was at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UWYSNzeKT0 Song kicks up round 1:40 mark. Or the CD version (good quality) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3iah1Hw_S0
Haha, yea that was Kent. I drag him along to all my black metal shows (though at that show Goatwhore was playing who he likes alot.) Was a good show though and yea Watain is gimmicky as shit to me. Their philosophy doesn't even pan out right. I mean, they still write fairly catchy tunes but the whole "we love satan more than you, praise chaos, Oh! but please buy our products!" shit gets beat. Perhaps having loogies and blood on me didn't help the situation. The smell I could deal with. If I was a bit closer I would re-payed the favor, maybe I'll have a chance if they make it on the cruise. haha. Granted some passengers might get tired of their shit and throw em off. I doubt Royal Caribbean wants their ship smelling like low tide let alone other passengers. A friend told me Sonar (the club they played) smelled like that for a week, haha. They weren't happy. Tis black metal! Least you'll remember the show! haha. Oh, just thought of another band that is really good (guess all the satan / rotten meat talk jogged my black metal memory, )

Canadian black metal written by a Bengali. This is their album before the newest and it is pretty good. Put it at the bottom of the cue though haha.
