* UnpleasableFanbase: Of the band's post-''DMDS'' output, only ''Wolf's Lair Abyss'' seems to be largely free of detractors. It doesn't help that part of the fanbase regarded the reformation of the band in the wake of Euronymous' death as being inappropriate to begin with. One wonders whether albums like ''Grand Declaration of War'' would have been less divisive if they had been released under another name.

* VocalTagTeam: In the ''very'' early stages of their career, before they had a permanent singer, Euronymous and Necrobutcher would take turns singing during rehearsals.

* CardCarryingVillain: Euronymous was completely shameless when it came to calling himself evil. See the quote at the top of the page.


Added DiffLines:

** Then there's Euronymous, who named himself after a Greek spirit of death and declared war on every band he considered "life metal", and of course, [[DrivenToSuicide Dead]], who believed himself to not be truly alive.

Following Dead's suicide, Dead was replaced by Hungarian vocalist Attila Csihar, and Necrobutcher left the band and was temporarily replaced by Varg "Count Grishnakh" Vikernes, sole member of Bergen-based group Music/{{Burzum}}. During the recording of the band's first full-length album, ''De mysteriis Dom Sathanas'', tensions rose between Euronymous and Vikernes, which later resulted in Vikernes killing Euronymous, stabbing him a total of 21 times. Due to complaints from Euronymous's family, Hellhammer promised to remove Vikernes' basslines and record them himself, but this didn't happen. The explanation is either him feeling it was fitting that killer and victim should perform on the same album, or simply (and more likely) not having the time and money to go back and replace them, not to mention not knowing how to play bass. Vikernes' bass parts were, however, lowered in the mix (although some vinyl editions have them raised again, most likely owing to the remastering process for vinyl).

-> "[[NoTrueScotsman There exist no death metal bands today, only "life metal" bands.]] If a band cultivates and worship death than it's death metal, no matter what kind of metal they play. And "cultivating" death doesn't mean to think it's funny or being into gore, [[NietzscheWannabe but I mean being able to kill just because you hate life.]] [[OmnicidalManiac It's people who enjoys to see wars because a lot of people get killed.]] [[PretenderDiss And I know no "death" metal bands in this way. There's an abyss between us and the rest:]] Be careful and avoid being "open-minded". The [[HardcorePunk HC]] pigs have correctly made themselves guardians of morality: We'll become guardians of anti-morality."

* LargeHam: Attila is perhaps the most notorious example of this among BlackMetal vocalists, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome not that anyone is complaining]]. His [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible unorthodox]] [[ManOfAThousandVoices amalgamation]] of [[GutturalGrowler guttural growls]] and operatic wailing is known for its theatrical qualities as well as being, well, [[{{Understatement}} highly emphatic]]. Maniac and Dead can also get pretty hammy.

Maniac and Dead can also get pretty hammy; Maniac's spoken-word passages on ''Grand Declaration of War'' are particularly hammy.

* LimitedLyricsSong: Despite running for nearly ten minutes, "Completion in Science of Agony (Part I of II)" only contains three stanzas (sixteen lines) of lyrics. Some of this is due to the slow tempo of the song, but even then, more than half of the song is instrumental (or contains only wordless vocals). "Illuminate Eliminate", another nearly ten-minute song, doesn't have much more in the way of lyrics than "Completion", and for that matter, the two-minute Part II of "Completion" only contains two lines, while the AlbumIntroTrack "The Vortex Void of Inhumanity" only contains a single line, repeated several times. There are probably other examples as well.

* HiddenTrack: As mentioned above under BookEnds, there is one of these before the first song on ''Grand Declaration of War''.

to:

* HiddenTrack: As mentioned above under BookEnds, there is one of these before the first song on ''Grand Declaration of War''. The final song, the second part of "Completion in Science of Agony", could itself be considered an example, as it's not listed on the back of the CD and comes after a lengthy silence.
