ROOTS OF BLACK METAL ROCK ‘N’ ROLL
Week of July 8, 2017
This week’s metal history lesson rocks out the black-hearted hatred with “black ‘n’ roll,” the fluid, feral variety of black metal that begins with early records by Venom and Bathory and courses through the years in the veins of Midnight, Nattefrost, Satyricon, Aura Noir, Kvelertak, Darkthrone, and many others. Hail, hail, black and roll —know your Roots!
