Most boys liked metal and fantasy
But not me yet… it was always Brit-pop
The death grunts were slow to get past
But time changes were my first way in there
Meshuggah, Death and Melvins at first…yeah!

Christmas 2011, I only listened to the Black stuff
And Norwegian weather forecasts
I read the whole lot

Varg Vikernes has served sixteen
But Venom weren’t totally real
Filosofum’s my fave – so unusual and stretched and folky too
In Terrorizer ’11, he was still deep in hate
So you can admire music and not a man himself

Darkthrone changing…
Death and Black both great
Soulside up to Plague...
I’m still against the crust punk
Krallice also make spells work
Gehenna might have made my fave with World War
Pallbearer and that groove on Werewolf
Bergen troubadour

Mayhem haven’t really made a bad album
Are Immortal secretly good musicians?
Glenn Benton’s face
Now Cannibal Corpse. Terrible covers, but best head banging ever and intense riffage
I’m now onto them

I long to scream out yeah
In the Black Country air
