Definition of Black Metal

Now we're going to try to answer the question who developed black metal and to answer this question we firstly is necessary to establish what pitch-black metal is and this is wikipedia's definition of pitch-black metal. Black metal is an extreme sub-genre of heavy metal music common characters include fast tempos a hollering vocal vogue heavily warped guitars played with tremolo picking raw low-pitched fire recording offbeat song organizes and an increased emphasis on the sky artists often appear in corpse paint and accepted pseudonyms first pitch-black metal was a synonym for demonic metal and black metal has often precipitated debate due to the actions and creeds are connected with the category numerous creators utter extreme anti-christian and misanthropic panoramas advocating various forms of satanism or paganism and let's knock this video off with some rock-and-roll carols from the 60 s that dealt with occult themes and the well-known british rockers the rolling stones wrote a song announced sympathy for the savage where mick jagger sings in the first person narrative as the ogre boasting his role in various historical transgressions also in 1968 arthur dark-brown rapidly payed a honour for his outlandish actions and the crazy life of arthur brown was an english psychedelic rock band constituted by arthur brown or the divinity of hellfire as he was referred to in the press in reference to the opening line of the song that you simply witnessed by the way and arthur chocolate-brown likewise utilized outlandish face draw that would later induce alice cooper and kiss amongst others and before we leave the 60 s we also need to talk about coven and their 1969 entry album incantation destroys anti-personnel mines and reaps souls and this record dealt with overtly occult and demonic themes and it was removed from the market soon after its freeing due to controversy and this album distinguished the first appearance in music of the signaling of the horns inverted spans and the motto applaud satan and today these are characteristics commonly used in black metal so i guess that coven proves that rock and roll really is the devil's music after all but since this video is about who devised black metal let's put the focus on metal music now and here are some hard rock and heavy metal bands that sung about the savage or hell for that matter but black metal is not only about the dark arts it's also about the music fast low-fi caused sometimes atmospheric metal with shouting vocals and the band that steered heavy metal in this direction in the 70 s was motorhead at least when it comes to fast-paced music with grime and fresh production qualities and just about every pitch-black metal circle in the 80 s cites motorhead as a huge influence and let's focus on england now because a lot of the most sinister strips of the early 80 s were part of the new wave of british heavy metal movement and we're going to listen to a particular party now that i think we're early adopters of heavy metal with magical themes and now you might be thinking so what it was just a demo simply official liberates matter well fair enough but let's not forget that angel witch released their introduction book before toxin slayer hellhammer and all of those parties had their first demos out and don't get me wrong i'm not saying that angel who the hell is a pitch-black metal circle or anything like that but i do think that they connected the gap between black sabbath and what was about to come she and we also have another new wave of british heavy metal band that i want to mention and that is which finder and their 1980 entry recording established him hell and merely look at this album the artwork the book designation and even the band name oozes of pitch-black metal but the vocals on this record are the most in the traditional heavy metal field but this is the first time that i've seen baphomet on an book sleeve in 1981 toxin released welcome to hell which is generally seen as the starting point not only for black metal but extreme metal in general and newcastle-based venom is in my humble sentiment the genuine originators of black metal and in different interviews members of venom has said that they attracted influences from circles like judas priest depth purple blacknes sabbath kiss motorhead samson gary moore off-color oyster religion and six pistols but the expression blacknes metal was not invented yet but that was about to change with the poison second studio album
