When it comes to crossover genres, certain genres, or elements of them, are more likely to “crossover” than others. As it with fashion, so it is with Extreme Metal: Black goes with everything. Indeed, you can find bands that play Blackened Death (Akercocke, Angelcorpse, Belphegor), Blackened Death-Doom (Bölzer, Necros Christos, Soulburn), Blackened Speed (Bulldozer, Exorcist, Sodomizer), Blackened Thrash (Aura Noir, Deströyer 666, Witchery), Blackened Grindcore (Absvrdist, Sunlight’s Bane, Vomit Fist), Blackened Noise (Enbilulugugal, Gnaw Your Tongue, Sutekh Hexen), Blackened Sludge (Inter Arma, Lord Mantis, Tombs), the list goes on. This actually makes sense when you think about it.
Blackened Thrash Metal is what you get when Black Metallers want to play something “thrashy” (i.e. getting drunk on beer and Motörhead). When this happens, nine out of ten times they commission someone to basically design them a Death-Doom-like logo, but one that features bat wings and maybe a pentagram, too.
Take me back to the sample overview.
