Re: Any metal fans here?

I mostly listen to black metal. Lot's of good BM bands in Poland.
Black metal generally requires reading of lyrics to be fully appreciated.

MasseMord
https://paganrecords.bandcamp.com/album ... e-profound
https://paganrecords.bandcamp.com/album ... livid-hope
https://paganrecords.bandcamp.com/album ... evastation

One of my favourite bands, ever. Started listening to MasseMord in the beginning of 2009. That pure hate and bitterness. Never heard anything like this before or after.

Furia
https://paganrecords.bandcamp.com/album ... lska-jesie
https://paganrecords.bandcamp.com/album ... a-grudniem

One of projects of the group Let The World Burn responsible for among others: MasseMord, Furia, Cssaba. Very moody.

Mgła
https://no-solace.bandcamp.com/album/groza-lp-2008

I love Groza III (The Horror). Another very dark song that resonated with my mood for a lot of time. Also started to listen to it in the beginning of 2009.

Kriegsmaschine
https://ksmpl.bandcamp.com/album/altere ... ty-lp-2005
https://ksmpl.bandcamp.com/album/enemy-of-man-lp-2014

Another very dark band.

Nagual

From outside Poland:

Emperor

https://candlelightrecordsuk.bandcamp.c ... ire-demise

Some other bands:

I started listening to metal somewhere around 2001-2002 with Metallica's Black Album, then S&M and most of others except for Ride the Lightening, IIRC.
Then Manowar, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, Emperor, Marduk, etc.

I remember that back then I was in really bad shape mentally and basically, had no friends after going through 8 years in sabotage centre disguised as primary school and then one year in sabotage centre disguised as private high school.
I only started having normal classes in, like 2000 when I went to a public high school, but I had really hard time getting to know people after all I went through. But when I got into metal, I finally met some cool people who were into metal, rock, fantasy, sci-fi, martial arts, cRPGs, all these cool things.


I kinda began distancing myself from black metal as lots of bands out there are pornsick or social Darwinist or whatever.

Anyway, here is the list of albums I got:

I had a very similar experience around the same time period.

I have flirted with black metal on and off; I like the sound and (sometimes) the artwork, but generally I don't care for either the "Hail Satan!" nonsense, nor the social Darwinist stuff which comes out now and then.

I'm into atmospheric black metal these days -- it generally captures the sound, atmosphere and artwork I like, but without the extreme ideologies often associated with that genre.
