Why Hellhammer’s Satanic Rites is possibly the most important metal record ever made

Quote:
Most people place the birth of black and death metal somewhere between Venom’s first album Welcome to Hell (1981) and Bathory’s third full-length Under the Sign of the Black Mark (1987). The exact moment of divergence from ancestors depends on the speaker’s level of metal puritanism and their favorite albums are from that era, and can sometimes seem a trivial dichotomy. Moot though it may be, my pick for the first discernible piece of death/black metal music is also, more importantly, the moment at which metal realizes it can be more than just warmed-over rock music.

Tom Warrior and co will forever be canonised in the metal pantheon for the early Hellhammer and Celtic Frost releases, which collectively shaped the sound of metal in a way that is only really matched by Slayer (who were probably influenced by Hellhammer in their change of sound between Show no Mercy and Haunting the Chapel).

Interesting hypothesis. I get a little nervous when people start writing about music from an analytic perspective. Ultimately, IMHO, music should be emotive: either it slays or it doesn't and that comes down largely to individual taste. I guess I subscribe to the school that "music is bigger than words and wider than pictures" and I am not certain that language can convey with any fidelity what the user intends when speaking about music.

How can I possibly describe the feelings provoked during the first few minutes of Melvins' "Your Blessened"? What words to describe the cymbals or meter? .... Perhaps I am a nihilist.

No, that makes you a conceptualist and you're spot on . . . .

I'm sure they likely meant to say "Apocalyptic Raids..."

Duh,
