Darkthrone soulside journey

In my opinion Darkthrone's first album is a masterpiece of technical dark death metal, and I've no problem that later they turned into black metal!

I have only examples of two not so good ones:
Curse (Fin) and Sigillum Diaboli (Fin). Both had very strong deathmetal influences on their first demos, which made them stand out from the mass. Later on they became typical norse-sounding black metal bands. (havenīt heard newer Diaboli albums though)
Edit. Cradle of Filth`s demos were also pretty much death metal efforts and beat the crap out of the black metal albums of theirs...

Temple of Offal was pretty much straight death metal.

That pre-Arcturus Mortem material is pretty dire in my opinion.

Slow Death 7"/demo is one of the best things to come out of Norway. I love the vocals.

Heh, wanted to write more or less the same... back then I was incredibly disappointed that they changed their style after that masterpiece.

Necromass (ita) was basically a death metal band at the time of the 'Connected body pentagram' tape.

Yeah they went Black -> Death -> Black

I didn't like the death metal stuff too much.

+1. Vocals especially sucked hard and the music lacked brilliant riffs. A band that walked the black-to-death path with more convincing results must be polish Behemoth, for some reason I find their latest Morbid Angel worship more enjoyable than the Gorgoroth rip-off they delivered on the early albums.
