    amazing space metal
    It's prog metal with djent elements. No need to invent a new genre.

    I think Vildhjarta might be reasonably similiar to that band based on what I heard, however I haven't heard lots of things from US and I listened to very minimal Vildhjarta too (this is something I want to remedy) so I might be wrong, but that band might be a point of interest for you if you liked Uneven.

    Truly indeed. But honestly, most of the early Norwegian Black Metal did more-or-less just sound like a bunch of angry guys pissing into the PA.

    As well as some others I can't think of at the moment. For the most part it's death and black metal, with a little bit of deathcore.

    Speaking of Latin in Metal: This is an interesting read.

    I'm guessing you are talking about the raw production prevalent among older and contemporary underground releases. Early '90s BM bands obviously tried their best to mess with their production, either through purposeful use of shitty equipment (Filosofem, Burzum), shitty recording environment (Nattens Madrigal, Ulver), or a combination of both (Forest Poetry, Ildjarn). It was a matter of choice, not money.

    To me, the low production is a big part of what BM is, it's part of its charm. If done well, as was the case in Darkthrone's Transilvanian Hunger, it really adds something to the music, an atmosphere that cannot be attained any other way. Naturally, if produced badly (Nattens Madrigal, Ildjarn/bedroom BM) it could ruin the whole record, nobody likes trying to decipher music through a wall of static.

    The Sear Bliss song posted above is a good example of how BM could be produced. It's still rough and a bit dirty, which adds to it's charm, without being overly so. Imagine it being crystal clear like a pop album, how much it would change/affect the atmosphere.

    I take exception to your above example. Nattens Madrigal has a remarkable sound which suits the album for what it is. Despite its perceived imbalance due to the trebly sound, it's still a very clear production with its own unique sound.

    I much prefer this over any generic metal sound you get these days, where you can't even tell what band it is by the production because they all sound the exact same.

    //edit: Sidenote, most metal bands - let alone black metal upstarts - didn't exactly have much choice back then. Most of the studios were either horrid or fiendishly expensive or both. 18-20 year olds generally do not have a lot of money to spare and neither did their labels in as far as they were actually signed at the time of the recording. Read, if you feel so inclined, the stories of Limbonic Art recording their early albums.

    //edit2: Additionally, apart from the musicians being poor and the studios being horrid... even the good studios had no clue how to record this type of music. As an example, I love the Grieghallen sound. But it took Pytten about 5 years to perfect it. The early albums recorded there (around 1991-ish) were really not that great sounding when compared to a Soulblight, which is some 6 years later.

    I always wanted to grow my hair long, I even tried to during my mid teens, but decided keep it short instead once I realized it didn't look good. (I have thick, slightly wavy hair)

    I agree, unique could definitely used to describe it. If it didn't hurt my head every time I listened to it, I might have a different stance.

    That might be so, but that still didn't prevent some bands from going out of their way create a low quality production, such as by purposely buying bad equipment.

    Have to say I can't think of many things that annoy me more in music than the feeling that "I would enjoy this infinitely more had the production been different". For that reason I'm all for having bands re-release earlier stuff with modern (usually meaning cleaner) production. Too bad there's so few if any bands re-releasing their clean production stuff as "dirty" afterwards. For one quick example I'd love to hear some of Behemoth's newer albums with less clean production.

    I think that in general the black metal artists with their cheap (or dirty) production (even if intentional) hit the jackpot in so many cases that it far outweighs the times that low cost production ruined albums.

    I'd say the only band that qualifies as Space Metal is Rosetta.
