More thrashy. It's vocal style is not the high pitched black metal screech. It's more an early death growl style. And the production isn't bad enough.

My understanding is that Venom are kinda pre-Black Metal. In that they inspired a lot of what Black Metal would become. Kinda like how you could call Sabbath Doom... they're not really, but kinda are too.

Venom are like proto-black metal, just as Black Sabbath are like proto-doom metal, and early Judas Priest were proto-power metal.

They aren't really black metal, but they laid the groundwork and therefore have a lot in common with it. I mean, they coined the fucking term, so they have to get some credit for that.

I'm not talking about current Black metal. more like pre-black metal. Almost like how Death isn't anything like the current death metal we have today.

Venom is what lead to Mayhem to black metal I consider them classic metal. There lyrics are what lead to black metals harsh content.

I completely agree with you. Venom is like the inspiration for all extreme metal, such as thrash, black, and death. Tempo= heavily inspires thrash. Lyrics= Heavily Inspires Black metal, and Vocals= More Guttural death style growls than anything at that time.

Which is why I don't think they're heavy metal. With the vocal and lyrical content they really can't be considered heavy. Also define Classical metal.

Mercyful Fate and Venom ARE black metal. Like Dent said, it'd be like not calling Sabbath doom. And you guys are forgetting a key aspect of why they are. Atmosphere.

This one isn't until November so its a long way away from the gig on Sunday (oh yeah ;)), but its an the Royal Albert Hall in London - same place as that Opeth gig, right Bahamut? - so it could be fucking amazing! I'm expecting an orchestra for sure, and as its Bonfire Night, maybe some fireworks :).

Aw sweet. I wish she'd come to New York sometime in the near future. You're so lucky that you're British.

I was of the impression that she spent more time playing over there is the States. All the live videos of her on Youtube and such are of her on the Letterman show and with Zach Braff, etc.
I've never seen such a video set over here.
Maybe she's just neglecting us all :'(.

This signature makes use of various clichés and/or 'emotional' lyrics/quotes, hopefully it makes me appear deep.

I heard the Meshuggah/Lady GaGa mash-up when Nev posted it but it's still amusing. Infact, the song Bleed has begun to grow on me more and I may consider getting ObZen. However, if they ever released a compilation album containing all their best songs, I'd be made up.

I swear, the only two things good about Lady GaGa are interesting mash-ups and Poker Face parodies.

If I shaved my head, which I probably won't, I would probably look like a bit like a cross between David Draiman and Billy Corgan. Definitely awkward, right?
