Darkthrone's "A Blaze In The Northern Sky" is probably their most aggressive and well-defined album. If you don't have that one, get it ASAP...it defines what early Norwegian black metal is all about.
Other stuff in that vein you might want to check out are Emperor's "Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk" (also check out Ihsan's side project...I don't remember what it's called though), Dissection's "Storm Of The Light's Bane", and just about anything by Dark Funeral (hah, especially Blackmoon's take on "Satanic Blood", it's rather funny).

The idea that PLASTIC swords at gigs make them favourites among fans instead of gigs where REAL swords turn up sickens me. I hold very few things sacred, but my love of epic fantasy is the one I hold most dear, and this spinal tappification of it sends me into far right extreemism.
fork to that one.

I've got 'A blaze in the northern sky', and the one that came after it, where the name isn't written on the actual disk, but there's a pic of a tree + a dude in corpse paint... Is it 'under a funeral moon' or 'transilvanian hunger', or some other one I haven't heard the name of?
And I've got 'Hate Them', which is almost a punk album it's so stripped down... recorded in 25 hours I beleive... It's what got me into Darkthrone in the firstplace...

When you put a 'h' into an Irish word, it goes after the first consonant (eg. Conaic -> cHonaic).
But you never put a h after a G anyway.
What you're ment to put before the G in this case is a N.
Ceol na nGael.
Now for ya.

My own fault for
a) not actually speaking the language

Yeah, I figured you just miscopied an 'n' to a 'h', but it's about the only thing I know in irish (actually, a h can come after a g though, I checked it up), so I thought I'd play the bastard smart person for once...

It depends on your mood, i guess. If i'm in a serious thinking mood (programming, anyone?) i listen to apocalyptica (A 4 man cello band famous for it's metallica covers). On any normal day I listen to most alternative and modern rock, with some metal.
Long live Nine Inch Nails.... and System of a Down!
