So the Kentucky-based black metal band Panopticon has elements of black metal and bluegrass on their Kentucky album; "blackgrass," if you will.

Does anyone know of any other blackgrass artists? Those who combine the two genres, or even bands that simply play both genres on an album?

I don't know about any blackgrass bands, but I do know a great black metal band with a southern/blues vibe. Glorior belli: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Glo ... 05#Reviews

Probably not what you are looking for, though.

I actually really like Glorior Belli! Yeah, I do know there are a handful of black metal bands with a southern vibe, I definitely like that sort of sound as well.

But yeah, I was more or less looking for black metal artists who more specifically played 'blackgrass,' or some bluegrass pieces. Good band though, nonetheless.

I can tell you right now that it's not out there. "Kentucky" is the closest there is in existence.

I'm not really familiar with Taake, but this song of theirs has a bluegrass solo

Nothing out there?

Quote:
About This Project

A casual conversation that I had with my friend Andrew sparked a simple, yet profound idea:

what if we combined bluegrass and black metal?

The unique challenges involved with combining such drastically different musical genres has inspired and compelled me. I am wholly dedicated to making this happen… or finding out why it fails.

This blog will chronicle the process of creating Blood and Banjos, writing a story album, and producing what I hope will be some interesting, if not enjoyable, music.

Click here to start from the beginning, and click NEXT at the bottom of the page to read along.

I welcome all encouragement and criticism alike. Thanks for reading!

Funny how this was the first result from google for "bluegrass black metal" ;)

Ah, now there's something! Thanks for that, I'll definitely check it out. Beyond that I guess I'll have to accept that 'blackgrass' isn't much of a thing, at least not right now.

there's a one man band hidden somewhere in Central Illinois by the name of Blood Cult (VERY original) that kinda fuses bluegrass and black metal. I think he refers to the music as Hillbilly black metal... alotta the stuff has an old country western flair to it with some darkthrone-esque black metal moments

Blood Cult isn't bluegrass, it's more pysche rockish. Also I've been pimping the Rev's bands for years!

Good rec for general purposes.

pretty funny to see my link on here... thought i'd point you to a particular page of interest though!

http://bloodandbanjos.com/2012/05/21/pr ... r-bands-a/

start here, then click "next" at the bottom. i tried to explore a few bands that combine bluegrass elements and [black]metal. this was right before kentucky came out though, which is pretty awesome by the way. i'll be checking out the other bands you guys have mentioned here too! thanks

I'll give Blood Cult a shot, anyway. And thanks, bloodandbanjos for the link. I also partially answered my own question and found two other bands - Thee Hobo Gobbelins (http://hobogobbelins.bandcamp.com/), which are clearly kind of a joke band, and Wolves in the Woods (http://www.reverbnation.com/wolvesinthewoods), who actually go as far as to call their music blackgrass.

At any rate, thanks for the recommendations.
