  2. Do you know what I hate about every black metal cd?? That I can NEVER read the damn name of the band... At least they 've written it underneath each cd, lucky me

    One of my favorite black metal bands, Weakling, only released one cd, but they put this crazy font all over that cd basically so that no one can read it. You have to look at each letter for like a minute to figure it out.

    Darkthrone is my favorite band. I thought Tatoonian Hunger was awesome.

    Yea, but this was some font they wrote in to make it look like a different language that they wrote over 6 times. It looked like japanese in an extremely tiny font that they would in different directions. Its kind of funny though.

    More proof that black metal guys are nerds in makeup. :D


    I'm starting to dig black metal, so I can't talk.

  12. Quality. It's a pity most black metallers have no sense of humour though... :D

    That has to be the FUNNIEST thing I've ever seen! It's about time these people who take themselves too seriously have a little fun poked at them.

    Most? Not sure if that applies to people around here :p
     
  17. Fortunately...:)
    FWIW, I used to be in a black/power metal band (until I had to quit due to RSI problems). I always felt like I was taking it a bit less seriously than the rest of the band....

    Strange, I've never met a person who performs metal that has that nerdy edge who takes themselves too serious.

    what a crazy scene man...hard to believe those clowns are killing each other, burning down churches and whatnot.

    Anyway, Which BM band or band member used to bury his clothes for 2 weeks to capture the smell of death? does this ring a bell to anyone?
