Etos i estetyka muzyki black metalowej
The Ethos and Aesthetics of Black Metal Music
Black metal music is a modern phenomenon on a global scale. At the beginning, it was an experimental work by a few, mostly Scandinavian artist groups, in the last thirty years it became a source of inspiration for the ever growing number of musicians. Its fans numbers also grew across all continents. In my text, I make an attempt to analyze black metal etho and its ensuing aesthetics. Also, I try to reconstruct historic process of build-up and crystallizing of different axiological motifs which I consider as constitutive for this kind of music and the associated lifestyle.
