A stoner's guide to death metal and black metal

OK, here's a stoner's guide to death metal and black metal:

1. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence. It will blow your mind. And then do it again. And again.

2. Demilich - Nespithe. Play this late at night to descend into a weird underworld where nothing quite doesn't make sense, but only makes sense when taken as an abstract mood or feeling. Awesome.

3. Burzum - Det Som Engang Var. A twisted journey through the mind, stopping at the land of the dead. Almost ritual music for me.

4. Immortal - Pure Holcaust. When you are fully stoned, it sounds like horses galloping through an underwater symphony.

5. Incantation - Onward to Golgotha. Imagine wandering through a post-apocalyptic city, seeking Jesus to rape and kill him. That's this.

I'm not responsible for your mind becoming twisted if you listen to these while high, but I had a blast doing so.

Though I don't use the herb, I must be perpetually stoned... "naturally", because that album sounds exactly like that to me. When listening to it, I've often imagined a cohort of riders in some strange, cold, underwater world. Strange coincidence though.

Subvert the dominant paradigm, don't be a solipsist.
