The Meads of Asphodel - Intro

The Meads of Asphodel have to be one of the most diverse-sounding metal bands I've ever heard. They're nominally a black metal band, but they replace most of that genre's cliches with elements of punk, electronica, progressive rock, medieval and Middle Eastern influences, and more. They aren't any fonder of Christianity than their brethren in the black metal genre, but they don't have any of the goofy Satanic trappings that other bands do. This is thinking man's black metal.
