Watching Emperor live In London 1999 on DVD right now.

Amazing! The drum intro to one of the old tracks is mind-blowing.

Because trolling is hilarious!

Emperor is pretty awesome. I haven't heard any live albums of theirs but their first studio album is fantastic.

I love black metal. I'm currently listening to Fanisk, their album Noontide is a masterpiece.

Americans/people in the USA (I think it's only been shown in the USA): have you seen the documentary Until the Light Takes Us? I can't wait to get my hands on it.

i'm not a giant fan of black metal, but i will listen on occasion. i actually like the vocals...the black metal growl is a form of singing all its own and it truly is one of those things where if someone doesn't like it, they just don't understand it. or they really don't like loud aggressive music.

i always keep mayhem's de mysteris dom sathanis on my ipod just so when people ask about black metal, i'll stick that on and explain the ol' mayhem story to them. gets people very intrigued.

Well, I always said I hate death metal but... two months ago I found music of Opeth and I started to love them
Now I think I just didn't understand why growl, what?! Now I can listen to it although it's now too new for me. I am not sure if I will listen to more than Opeth or not.
Or.... does somebody know some melodic death / black metal band also with some normal singing? Something like Opeth?

as a general rule, it is not black metal unless you have the growl...in fact i know people who get upset if you can understand the lyrics. maybe that is not the norm...it is just what i have seen in a few cases. opeth is not exactly black metal, either...he is more just progressive metal who likes to use all ranges of metal. so...opeth is fairly out there with originality, unfortunately.

Ok, thank you for your explanation! Maybe Opeth can be some first step to this music... But I am not sure, I need some time to get to used to growl.

i live in canada and there's screenings of it on the 23rd and 28th. i'll probably go see it even though i don't listen to a huge amount of early black metal.
