After 200 votes we have closed our "What is your favourite genre of Black Metal?" poll with Pagan / Viking / Folk coming out on top.

In our first Black Metal poll, we asked you which was your favourite overall style or sub-genre of Black Metal. Well, after 200 votes, we have closed the poll, and the results are the following:

Pagan / Viking / Folk: 26.0% (52 votes)
Thrash / Death / Second Wave: 18.5% (37 votes)
Old School / Punk / First Wave: 17.5% (35 votes)
Epic / Symphonic / Orchestral: 16.0% (32 votes)
Ambient / Atmospheric / Doom: 14.0% (28 votes)
Industrial / Electronic / Noise: 8.0% (16 votes)


Pagan / Viking / Folk Black Metal is notably the most popular style at the moment among our userbase.

If you haven't noticed, we have already opened a brand new poll. This time around, we ask you Which is the country that has provided you with the majority of your favourite Black Metal albums?.
