The facts that go down in history are the sum of a person’s will, time, and need for a particular action.
Everything else is just… ambitious efforts.
How it sounds
As if the Black Metal bands of the Hard Rock of the ’70s were trolling.
It was as if Jerry Lee Lewis had been demonized and started playing Black Metal.
Why listen to it
Because it’s fun and many times their riffs would be envied by big names in the Hard Rock area.
Come on, play punk, and let go of the confusion…
Where we meet it
Norway and USA
When did it start
Who are the pioneers
“I” with Abbath on vocals, Khold and Kvelertak from Norway, Midnight, and Chapel from America.
You have to listen
Whiskey Ritual, The Infernal Sea, Carpathian Forest.
But also Satyricon, Darkthrone, Nachtmystium, Nidingr, Craft, and Sarke have dealt with the genre individually
Days of glory
They have their audience, but they are probably a rising genre.
Most have dealt with it this way for fun, few follow it consistently.
What is it confused with
With folk metal, pagan metal, and drunken blacksmiths who want to play Elvis covers.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant person?
The rock’n’roll played by demons in hell. Leave us and listen to Madonna!
