As the years go by, I'm thinking the Classic Black Metal Albums section is probably now missing a few albums worthy of the title.

They don't necessarily have to be albums from the 80s and 90s, as enough time has passed and enough evolution has happened for releases from around 2000-2010 (or perhaps even stretching to around 2015) to be considered classics also. Albums that have not simply come and gone, but have withstood the test of time and become perennial favourites across the Black Metal community as a whole.

RIP Joey Jordison

Posted by Imperator on 7th August, 2021 @ 13:03 UTCBy Imperator on 07-08-2021 @ 13:03 UTC

Nice little video put together by the band in remembrance of the great Joey Jordison who passed away on 26th July.

Slipknot were my #1 band at one point, my first introduction to really heavy music, and I think there's an element of truth in what Joey said regarding Iowa being the "heaviest album ever made". While there are of course things like Marduk's "World Funeral", any Teitanblood album, or a thousand other examples in Black/Death Metal, I think if you were growing up in the early 00s and listened to Iowa, there was really nothing else like it, and there probably still isn't anything ...

Interview with Chrysthian Chrisley from the "One Man Bands" YouTube channel
Interview with Chrysthian Chrisley from the "One Man Bands" YouTube channel

Some of the biggest names in Black Metal are the result of one man's vision. Whether it was the case of Quorthon's Bathory, starting life as a full band and gradually becoming a solo project over time, or Varg's Burzum, being an entirely self-contained musical entity from the project's inception, "One-Man Bands" form an inherent, integral, and often times fascinating part of Black Metal, and can trace their roots back almost as far as the beginning of the scene itself.

With the technological advances in music recording and production that have taken place over the last decade, it is now ...
