Norwegian Black Metal is a subgenre of extreme metal music that originated in Norway in the early 1990s. It is characterized by its fast tempos, shrieking vocals, heavily distorted guitars, and raw, lo-fi production. The lyrics often focus on themes of Satanism, death, and the occult. The genre is also known for its use of corpse paint, an extreme form of makeup used to create a corpse-like appearance. Norwegian Black Metal is often associated with the Norwegian black metal scene, which was responsible for a wave of church burnings and murders in the early 1990s.
