I too used to buy a lot from Supernal Music. I got into The Meads of Asphodel due to them.

I also used to buy a lot from Alice's Records i was always on the phone to them. Very knowledgable people.

Supernal were good then it went pear shaped and he shutdown as he owed a lot of people money from albums he didn't send out apparently but his webpage is still open. I got introduced to Drudkh through Supernal

For me, I've never really gotten into Black Metal too much. But I do LOVE early Venom - the masters of Black Metal. I'm a massive fan of their work on the first few albums, especially stuff like Buried Alive, Countess Bathory and this awesome track...

There's something so fascinating about the genre though - I'm not sure what it is. Like something is drawing me to it whenever I hear it/read about it. There was this great article in Metal Hammer a couple of years back about Norwegian Black Metal and I just couldn't stop reading it.

Hands down my favourite Venom song first time i heard the guitar intro the hairs on my arms stood up and a chill ran down my spine. Not only is the music dark but the subject matter is quite disturbing. Always one of my biggest fears to be locked inside a very small confined space with little or no room for movement but to bed buried alive even worse. Not only was this music touching my soul it was getting inside my head and exposing my fears amazing emotions i had never felt before.

Totally agree, buddy! That's one of my faves too - you NEED to crank up the volume all the way, stick in the headphones and listen to that - it's just so creepy.

Speaking of, an elderly guy was believed to have been buried alive the other week, Nordic after the sleeping epidemic in Russia I think...

If you love to read about Black Metal you should get a copy of Lords of Chaos. It deals with the music aswell as the murders and church burnings.

Nordic. Why don't you tell us your essential ten Black Metal albums.

BURZUM - #2 - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss - YouTube

Burzum the one man band of Varg Vikernes he may have some questionable beleifs but he makes some fantastic primitive Black Metal. His vocals are filled with torment and anguish he really sounds like a tortured soul screaming from beyond the grave.
