but, as i wait on my Iron throne of corruption, i feel the fires forging a new metal to again push the envelope of songwriting in this genre.....

Sounds like Abruptum.Freanan said:I have noticed that many black metal fans and bands are turning toward ritual noise and ambient.
I think it would be great and at least rather innovative to macke extreme metal with noise influence. Noise by itsself can become boring and only works in the right mood, if at all. But adding more expressionism and breaking of structure to extreme metal could be a benefit.
It is hard to describe what i am talking about, but maybe you understand me...
What i mean is, for example, moments of silence in the music, changing of speed, breaking out of the normal riff-repetition and doing something "unexpected", "expressive", ...
An example would be the moment of Burzum's Spell of Destruction, were the music ebbs down and we hear varg screaming tormentedly.
Maybe this reads as if i were just suggesting "elements" and it might seem like novelty or "let's make another bastard-genre", but this is not what i mean.
What i am missing is a really effective combination of (for example) the "catchyness" of black metal (well, it is not catchy, but at least it has riffs/melody and a beat to cling to) with the expressive power and... non-linearity of Noise.
Spirit In Black said:i hope there is an evolution to better written songs...less emphasis on technicality and speed and more time spent on writing good memorable riffs and songs
Abruptum is, in fact what i mean...ænimated said:Sounds like Abruptum.
