Dark Throne - Unplugged
Sometimes we can gain a deeper understanding of art by simply taking in a fresh interpretation of a well known piece. Consider, if you will, the multiple acoustic versions of Dark Throne's "Transilvanian Hunger" available to us through the magic of youtube.
There's nothing about a chubby, latino dude wearing a sweet baja sweatshirt that says "black metal"
Dude, you should be picking at twice the speed. Burzum shirt and Metallica shorts? Go make your bed. And then tune your guitar.
Okay, this guy is plugged in. Seriously, do you need the sheet music in a stand to play this song? His mom is gonna be so pissed about him putting his feet up on that tasteful ottoman. Nice zippers on his pants too. Sexy.
This guy got straight up fancy with the arrangement. He made the song suck even more. He's like the Dave Matthews of black metal.
This guy knew he didn't look very metal. So he spared us the visual.
Rolling Stones poster? I know metal sir, and you are not metal. I can just picture his mom crying about the fact that this is what her looser son has turned out to be.
