I struggle with the need to express the sheer scope and scale of what I believe black metal can be whenever I talk to people about the genre, and whilst I traditionally like the insular, inward self-sabotaging acts of true hate and loathing, I want to explain what the genre can be in those moments when not consumed by its own loathing, when not burdened by the weight of its own complicated history and the associations people have with it.


I don't really have the words to do that, but if I was to make you listen to one thing to offer a counterpoint to what you think you know, then I would present you with Mesarthim's synth-driven cosmic loneliness. youtu.be/sPXUMFpE6GI
