No matter how high a branch wants to reach, it will always lean on the old bole…
How it sounds
As a concurrent rehearsal of a symphony orchestra and a Black Metal band.
Basically, as if Phil Spector was producing Rotting Christ.
Why listen to it
Because it is delicate, of high quality, and because an orchestra always gives more volume to existing songs.
Also because the production is usually very good and even mediocre compositions sound more majestic.
Because Black Metal was not created for operas and Music Palaces.
Where we meet it
The United Kingdom and Norway
When did it start
The early 1990s.
Who are the pioneers
The Emperors with their debut album, “In the Nightside Eclipse”, are considered pioneers of the genre.
You have to listen
Anorexia Nervosa, Dragonlord, Hecate Enthroned, Opera IX, Shade Empire, Tvangeste, Twilight Ophera, Welicoruss, Limbonic Art, Obtained Enslavement, Diabolical Masquerade, Graveworm, Abused Majesty, Bastard of Loran.
Days of glory
In the ’90s, but also from the mid-’10s, the genre shows a recovery, due to very good releases.
You can not find an orchestra that does not get scared with Black Metal.
It is difficult for a band to reproduce its sound properly in smaller spaces and it is difficult to fill the larger ones.
What is it confused with
With Black Metal, Technical Death Metal, and the personal orchestra of Satan himself.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Some devilish guys screaming from hell, along with a symphony orchestra!
Like listening to Johannes Brahms with the Symphony Orchestra of Hell!!!
