This kind of metal is extremely not for a beginner, this genre is far beyond death metal.The pattern looks similar to death metal except vocals are more scream and shriek include raw recording. Most of bands usually come from Norway in term of Norwegian Black Metal (second wave early 1990s), they're Anti-Chris that's why their lyrics are about satanic and some mythology, nature,folklore and philosophy later. My favorite bands of black metal is a band name Burzum.
Burzum mean Darkness.
Burzum is a one man band by Varg Vikernes. Formed in 1991 in Bergen, Norway, during 1992-1993 he recorded 4 albums, In 1994 he was arrested and imprisoned for the murder of his friend Øystein "Euronymous" Aarseth the guitarist of black metal band name Mayhem and the arson of several churches. He was sentenced to 21 years in prison (max penalty of Norway), at that time he was 21 years old. My feeling towards him is just one word ''Awesome'' he really is a metal monster. \m/
