Black Metal

On Discogs
Overview / Releases / Marketplace

A form of overtly occult extreme metal that propagated widely in the 1990s as a reaction to the popular death metal and grind of the time, influenced by more primitive metal styles of the early to mid '80s (sometimes retroactively labeled as "first wave black metal"). The style is typified by high-pitched screaming/shrieking vocals, distorted, trebly guitar often tremolo-picked, and fast, often simple drumming.
