Hipster Black Metal

This is a black metal band. I shit you not!

WARNING: This is not for the faint of heart.
I came across a pretty cool blog that just kinda sits there abandoned, yet it should be updated.
Check out Phlegmatic Metal Dude.

I saw something there I didn't think existed, yet how could I be so naive?
Since there is such a thing as Unblack metal (or Christian Black Metal), why wouldn't there be Hipster Black Metal? Why? Because it sounds too fuckin' stupid, that's why!
Yet, as evidenced in a video below, thanks to a bunch of kids from Brooklyn in a band called Liturgy, such a cultural oxymoron does exist and poses further questions of when are we going to see an offspring of Depressive Black Metal and Glam (fingers crossed for spiked hair with corpse paint) or Progressive Soothing Jazz Pornogrind.

See the video at your own risk. This is way too pretentious for me.

Dis is beyond retarded. Go back to playing Indie rock.

Thanks for the mention buddy.
Yep, I vomited a bit in my mouth too when I heard about this band.
Guess I'm due for my bi-yearly update...

Liturgy does suck, but there are a lot of really good 'hipster' Black Metal bands. Krallice and Wolves in the Throne Room are amazing.

I think Varg Vickerness set the bar of taking black metal seriously pretty high. These hipsters wont change shit and they suck!
