As this column progresses, the format and what’s talked about will change. Because evolution is cool and fact and it keeps it interesting for myself and you lovely readers.

March 1st, 2012

In the final part of his look at the Black Metal evolution over the past 20 years, today Tom Dare is examining the murkier and more indistinct realms of “post”-Black Metal band, as well as those bands who might’ve moved beyond the boundaries of Black Metal musically, still remain within the genre in spirit, at least….

With Sunday just past marking the 20th anniversary of the release of Darkthrone’s A Blaze In The Northern Sky (and therefore being pretty much the closest thing to a birthday that black metal can claim to have), over the coming week we’re letting Tom Dare off the leash to run his mouth about one of metal’s most controversial off-shoots.

Guess The Snowy Album Cover? Thrash Hits

Look, we’re a bit tired, we’ve foolishly agreed to cook Sunday lunch today, and we still have to trudge down the shops to buy a big slab of meat to cook for it.

by Tom Dare

It is something of a tragedy that the guitarist in one of the most legendary of all black metal behemoths was forced to stop playing through medical necessity. While still an integral part of Immortal’s frozen gestalt, Demonaz hasn’t played guitar since 1997.
