Some days ago this album randomly happened to be in my hands. Listening to it I noticed, that it is one of the most bright and emotional metal albums...

Urgehal is the real deal,not just another "trve kvlt brv00tal" wannabe band.
Also,they are one of the few bm bands that also incorporate solos in their compositions!

Could you give me any examples of any of those wannabes. I mainly listen to Bathory, Burzum, Darkthrone and Emperor when it comes to Black Metal. So I basically just listen to the "classic" stuff and also Windir. Oh and great album by the way.

Don't really have any examples,but what I meant to say is that there are quite many types of generic,bland bm bands that only incorporate blast beats and some fast played riffs and just that,and they are total garbage. It's a serious lack of creativity,honestly.
So,you listen to the "classic" stuff? Bathory kicks ***,and Windir is a pretty melodious band. The 1184 album is good.

Ravens of my funeral is sick.
The 1:47 part where the singer just moans "uh" is the most hilarious part.

I think Black Metal had a time and a reason to be, a music that reflects the anger against the religions (christian religion mainly) that tried to impose themselves by force and tried to destroy the original beliefs and values of the European countries. Also reflects the atmosphere of the Scandinavian countries which is dark and cold (climate), but yet beautiful (nature) and mysterious. That's why many of the bands embraced the Satanic imagery cause it represented what was wrong for the Christians and therefore it was in some sort a declaration of War against those religions. But I must say I prefer the bands that focused more in contemplating the atmosphere of their countries and/or their beliefs (Norse gods), just like Burzum does and many others, but I still dig the whole satanic affair. I feel like maybe many bands are appearing just wearing Corpse Paint because they think it is to look cool or evil, and don't know the true meaning of it, and also, like you said, they don't bring nothing new to the table and just think that incorporating a blast beat on the drums and repetitive fast riffs is going to make them Black Metal. Black Metal was never meant to be music for everyone, and when you listen to it you're supposed to feel the power and the magic. I really appreciated the complexity and high technique that Urgehal had in that album (I say it like this because I haven't heard anything else from them so I don't know if it's their only album like that, but I bet all the other albums are great as that one) compared to other Black Metal bands.

Black metal is that type of genre that doesn't come kicking at your doorstep,it's not music that you can hear in everyday and monotonous life,you have to search for it,revile or appreciate it.
Corpse paint is a nice touch,it certainly adds to the grimness and shock value that most bm artists tend to express. I love black metal. It's that type of music that delves into all that is dark and tainted,both within man and the world that surrounds him. As for anti-religious themes,yeah,I can understand them being ****** off at religion.
And now let's be honest,Scandinavia has to be a metaller's dream paradise,right?
