Boingboing's "Black Metal for Dummies"

Band Photo: Cradle Of Filth (?)

BoingBoing.net has made a post, likely inspired by the most recent "Top 10 Most Ridiculous Black Metal Pics of All Time". The post contains several pictures for illustrative purposes as well as external links, so I will simply link to it here. The intruduction to the post starts like this:

"What is black metal? There are as many definitions as there are demons in Satan's subterranean condo. And like those hot-and-bothered helldwellers, Black Metal afficionados are a contentious lot -- sometimes even murdering one other over who is and isn't true to the genre."

BoingBoing.net posts all sorts of weird stories, and it's funny to see a stray Black Metal post, however devoid of real content.

A link contributed by a reader also worth a glance is this How to make your very own Black Metal band.

The only thing good about COF is that they have At The Gates' drummer. Sorry COF fans, not saying they're not talented, I’m just not a fan of their music.

I have to agree with "pyroleprechaun." COF is not Black Metal. Emperor, 1349, and Grand Belial's Key is Black Metal.

I'm not much into specific types of metal i guess. Metal is metal to me, but i will say that i'm a fan of COF. Maybe they're not black metal, i dont really know, but i like them all the same
