My Fiends and I STILL have the obscure Horror MeTal band, Ghastly Secret...believe it or not(I don't!), we are STILL "working on new material". I have not only an enjoyment of but an empathy for the coldest, grimmest forms of Black MeTal...because I am "lucky" enough to live in an area (Northern Wisconsin, USA) that is usually cold and grim---akin to Scandinavia. I started listening to "Heavy", then moved onto the 80's advancements like Venom, Sodom, Slayer, and the MIghty Destruction, along with Bathory, Celtic Frost(really the most exciting time to discover new MeTal, when you think about it!)etc...then fell into the "Death" scene for a while; finding that ultimately unsatisfying/stagnant, I began to explore more Black, which has suited me ever since, with it's alternating ugliness and beauty, proficiency and primitiveness. I've found that communicating with other True MeTal People/Things via the internet can be a mutually beneficial method of learning about new or old bands. This website in particular is a fantastic tool of knowledge. Favourite bands: Limbonic Art and Destruction.
