I mean I know everyone has their own tastes in music and its kind of pointless asking, but who can honestly look/listen to something like this and take it seriously? Can you actually say you like a band that looks like this without being embarrassed?

I'm not particularly bothered about the image, unless it's something truly terrible.

I personally get really turned off by bands that make their image a huge deal. I listen to them for their music, not to see what they dress like.
Gear
Highway One Tele (w/Custom Shop 51 Nocaster pickups)
Standard Tele (modded to Nashville specs)
Reverend Roundhouse

Orange Rockerverb 50 MKI
Vox AC4c1
Jet City JCA20H

And pedals!

I have nothing against black metal, I just find the "image" to be a bit ridiculous.
I'm into post-hardcore mostly, so I guess you could say that image is a little odd as well.

They need to make it up somehow. I still like Immortal anyhow.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

i take them deadly seriously...

I don't like them, but I don't see why I'd be embarrassed for liking them, if I liked them.

If anything, it seems like it would be embarrassing for them, not me.

Most musicians are also performers. I'm not a fan of music by Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper or KISS, but I always go when they come to town because their shows are amazing and very fun with all the explosions, robots, naked chicks, etc.

As for Black Metal, I'm not into the whole evil for real attitude. Alice Cooper does it right because he obviously doesn't believe he's evil for real. Even bands like Slipknot and Marylin Manson base their image on horror and not being an evil satan from hell

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

With that avatar and user name, how can people take you seriously, TS?

Immortal are probably the worst band to use as an example of the corpse paint and "taking seriously". You only need to watch an interview to realise they treat it like a piss take most of the time.
#27
Immortal is awesome. And if you don't like a band for the image they have, what kind of music listener are you anyways?

This isn't really about them specifically, I just googled Black Metal and took the picture lol, I didn't know who they were until it mentioned in the thread.

Sometimes a band needs a gimmick to get noticed.

/common sense.

I think Gorgoroth is a better example. I like them but damn....

I prefer Acoustic Black Metal. It's much easier to listen to and less awkward.

Btw, black metal sucks.

You should like black metal. You are a rhythm guitarist.

Black metal has indeed some cool riffs, I just don't like the screams and the lyrics.

Nobody takes Immortal totally seriously you fool. They make fun and awesome music and the cheesey/campy image is part of the awesome.

Most black metal fans don't take the anti-god, church burning, ridiculous dressing parts of black metal seriously but enjoy the music nonetheless.
