This is me listening to Dimmu Borgir's Stormblast:

Interesting, blastbeats with clean guitar. That's new

More of the same thing (Its hard to enjoy new stuff first time through)

Interesting Gothic piano-only  intro on the track Sorgens Kammer.

Okay, the piano intro has gone on for some time now. Get on with the metal.

Its obviously not an intro. Its now 5 minutes into a 6 minute song. HOLY SHIT WHO CARES ABOUT PIANO I THOUGHT THIS WAS METAL AAAHHHHHHGH!

There is a black metal topic? W00T?  :D

As an expert in the field, I must post right away and clear things up for you noobs!

The imagery behind BM is fading away in recent times, nobody takes it seriously anymore.
And nobody's burning churches like they did in 90's Norway.

Some bands still paint their faces and spray blood on the audience at gigs, but you can't really blame them. Heavy metal was always theatrical and over-the-top, black metal just took it to the extreme. Not to mention it's fun to watch those clowns at concerts. 

The genre itself is very experimental. Crossovers with ambient, folk, symphonic, avantgarde, industrial, electronic and gothic music emerged. Pagan and viking metal have their roots in black metal. Crossovers with death metal, thrash metal, crust punk and grindcore are common, too.

I listen to a lot of BM bands and I'm not ashamed to admit it, I listen to stuff I consider good and ignore the rest.

You just have to be born with a fondness for the distorted guitar, screechy vocals and uberdark posery.  :D
Extreme music for extreme people.

Here's a few I consider good, it's rather varied -

Industrial/Grindcore/BM:

Funny fact: Black Metal is acutally one of the most popular genres of music around. So now I can tell my BM friends that they aren't going " against the grain" or are " Rebels " when they listen to BM.
