I think you are totally on point. Mid-life? Uhhh a little late for that hrhrhr. Sorry had to get a bit black there .

I am fairly surprised at the lack of BM fans here. I myself am not the biggest fan, however after getting a couple of my good friends into more dissonant music, they had found themselves pretty well obsessed with it and went about buying a good swath of all the better stuff on vinyl. My buddy even looking into running an online record shop for it. It's not my favorite of the boundary pushing/noise/dissonant/whatever genres, however..

I do totally dig some black metal... when done right. My personal tastes are more on the modern side like WITTR, Krallice and a few of the classics (Burzum, et al.). I cannot stand ANY regular metal, hair metal, or Metallica BS. Black fucking Metal or STFU. It just has the aesthetics noise rock fans love... for me anyway.

Just found black metal a couple of weeks ago, and have been listening to heaps of it since. If you are a fan of early Sonic, Branca, Lydia Lunch etc black metal is a somewhat similar sounding genre with it's noise and tones.

If you are not put of by the vocals and lyrics here are some recommendations:

Prurient - Incense and Rubber
Xasthur - Prison Of Mirrors
Amesoeurs - Ruines Humaines
Burzum - Dunkelheit
Burzum - Gebrechlichkeit 2
Burzum - Jesu Død
Drudkh - Decadence
Coldworld - Red Snow
Blut Aus Nord - Procession of the Dead Clowns
Blut aus Nord - Odinist
Blut Aus Nord - Our Blessed Frozen Cells
Wolves In The Throne Room - Queen Of The Borrowed Light
Wolves in the Throne Room - I Will Lay Down My Bones Among the Rocks and Roots
Wolves in the Throne Room - A Looming Resonance
Wolves In The Throne Room - The Cleansing
Wolves In The Throne Room- Astral Blood
Cobalt - Gin
Drudkh - Decadence
Wodensthrone - Heofungtid
Drudkh - Glare of Autumn
Drudkh - Solitary Endless Path
Deathspell Omega - Kénôse I
Deathspell Omega - Apokatastasis Pantôn
Deathspell Omega - Abscission
Woods of Infinity - Mörkrädd
Woods of Infinity - A Love Story
Ulver - Hymn IV - Wolf and Man

As far as I'm aware I was the first (and only?) person here to mention mid-life crisis. Although I was being (mostly) humorous and put this down more to TM's musical decline over the past few years than your traditional mid-life crisis.

I'm waiting for mine to kick in by the way. I'm looking forward to it. Any suggestions welcome.

They don't that I know of but they supply the divine intervention that inspires the clothes.

I suppose I should stop liking BM now that I am fastly approaching the age (DEATH) when one's (DEATH) taste (DEAD) in music should mellow down (DIE).

For the record, I always wanted to be 60 since I was a 10 year old. I was pleased enough to make it past my 20th birthday so that my balls reached an appealing state of sexiness.

Black Metal: Beyond The Darkness
provides an overview in an in-depth reader format, bridging the gap between conventional accounts of the scene and the new pan-academic focus on Black Metal as a conduit for socio-cultural expression.






The book is a contemporary reader on a genre often maligned by the press as overtly concerned with nihilism, destructiveness and an insular obsession with Satanism and aggressive nationalism. In reality, Black Metal is a constantly evolving vehicle for musically and ideologically progressive groups and artists, one that is increasingly forward-thinking despite maintaining a purity of expression that is tied to the past.
Black Metal features a chronological historical overview of the genre’s developments; a multitude of band profiles and case studies on classic records; information on seminal record labels, peripheral industry individuals and shops; archival visual material; and a range of essays discussing Black Metal’s inherent relationship with radical environmentalism, fine art, sexuality, transcendentalism and theatrics, amongst other topics.

Bands featured include: Bathory, Burzum, Mayhem, Gorgoroth, Blut Aus Nord, Xasthur, Wolves In The Throne Room, Darkthrone, Immortal, Hellhammer, Liturgy, Weakling, Ulver, Immortal, Enslaved, 1349, Krallice, and the associated artists of the French Les Légions Noires movement. Highly illustrated with album covers, previously unseen photographs and ephemera.

Includes commentary by leading experts in the field; music and film writer Frances Morgan; journalist Louis Pattison; The Wire writer Nick Richardson; and Pitchfork editor Brandon Stosuy. Black Metal provides a unique insight into this progressive music genre.

This is very true... I'm absolutely terrified of losing my edge and listening to silky-smooth lite rock till the end of my days. Mid-life crises wasn't what I should have said. More likely it's a post-SY crises: after playing in a band for three decades, long enough for two and a half generations to go square under their surveillance, it makes sense for hi to want to apply himself in the most far-flung corner of itunes that still has some sonic link to noise rock

Having an edge is never about the music one listens to. Especially these days. I'm usually more impressed by those willing to fuck the preconceived notions of "cool" or whatever. Albini saying he didn't like jazz...I thought that was cool, and I really dig jazz sometimes. Was just sort of unexpected and said a lot more about his own music than I thought it would (honestly, I assumed him to be someone that might dig jazz). I guess a punk rocker talking about Marvin Gaye is kinda cool to me. Giving away albums (not to replace the same ones with vinyl) but for the sole purpose of someone else enjoying them is kinda edgy. I mean, some people have got all they are going to get out of Black Flag + Sonic Youth...course, this doesn't make either band any more or less.

I think Thurston doing the black metal thing is neat. He hasn't a damned thing to prove to anyone at this point. I mean, he's Thurston Moore. He fucked Kim Gordon. He's met virtually any musician worth a fuck over the past 35 years (many of which he's actually jammed with). He's largely responsible for Bad Moon Rising.

So...? Which one is a/the "side-project" these days?

I guess its a big deal because it should be some newish-uncharted territory for him. I am interested in it. Also, T can most of the time be trusted with his musical aesthetics. He has good sense in what to take up musically. Most of us have learned this and appreciate this aspect. Like someone already said.. He is a skilled and developed musician. He should be allowed to do whatever he chooses.

I dont think we need to worry about T having mid-life crises (musically) until there are Jemina Pearl/AWK Dubstep albums all over Ecstatic Peace.com

At that point, it'll be my time to shed this earthly husk. But let us forget these gastly nightmares and give us the heavy skronk!
