I’m a black metal fan. Really, I am. Black metal may not be on my playlist as other subgenre’s of the metal scene but when black metal is done well, it’s a chilling experience of delight. Black metal, while not for many of us, appeals to the primal nature of the human spirit and whispers tantalizingly to the dark recesses of repressed human nature. This is why I like black metal.
There is a large black metal subculture filled with bands from across the world, some with great talent and ability and many that lack both talent and ability. When Haemoth’s “In Nomine Odium” came through my inbox I was immediately intrigued, but sadly this album is in the found lacking category.
