"Mysteriis.." is a complete classic, but Mayhem were never my favorites either. Always partial to Burzum and Satyricon (from the norse second wave).
Second wave was also my favorite. I have always been a big fan of Emperor and a lot of Swedish bands from that era.

Agreed. I grew up with it (turning 40 next year), alongside various noise, darkwave and goth. Ive literally been listening to black metal since I was 15, and it will probably always have a place.

No, you're wrong.
I think peak hipster era was during the early 2000s when Southern Lord started flooding record stores with shitty US black metal (Xastur, Wolves in the Throne Room, etc). When all of the early Darkthrone, Emperor, Burzum, Satyricon, Immortal, Dissection, etc stuff was coming out only true metalhead freaks cared.

I don’t know, I used to be a huge metalhead but the elitism is just bad as hipsters. It’s no different. Granted I am younger so I didn’t live through the heyday and mostly dealt with older white dudes gatekeeping their music. No different from hipsters being pissed when anything gets popular etc.

Frankly I was more into 80s/90s death metal

I was never able to get into black metal aside from a couple specific bands ( Watain and the first few Craft albums most notably), which is kind of perplexing because I sought out and enjoyed heavy/abrasive music of all kinds, especially when I was younger. I've never understood why the genre as a whole was mostly a miss for me!

However I still regularly listen to 80s/90s death metal - and a handful of the better contemporary bands that are aping that style. It's had a bit of a resurgence the last few years, which has brought on a flux of mostly mediocre releases and a few phenomenal ones.

Death metal discussion > knife discussion
Fair enough, but the difference is that the metal discussion is going to end up at a handful of posts, to the several pages of knife talk.

Edit: I just saw this whole page is basically metal talk, so you can go ahead and ignore my comment now. :x
