Black Metal ist Krieg (German for "Black Metal Is War") is the third full-length album by the black metal band Nargaroth.

The album's full title is Black Metal ist Krieg: A Dedication Monument, and it was intended to be a tribute to early black metal musicians. It includes four cover songs and much of its lyrics deal with events in the history of black metal.

The image on the cover, showing the only member of Nargaroth, René "Kanwulf" Wagner, very closely resembles a promotional photograph of infamous black metal musician Varg Vikernes.[1]

Songs[edit]

  • ""Black Metal ist Krieg" includes a riff from the Strid song "End of Life" (1993).
  • "The Day Burzum Killed Mayhem" is about the murder of Mayhem guitarist Øystein Aarseth (aka Euronymous) by Burzum frontman Varg Vikernes (aka Count Grishnackh) in 1993. The beginning of the song is a recording of a news report about the murder.
  • "Erik, May you Rape the Angels" is dedicated to Erik Brødreskift who played drums for Immortal, Borknagar and Gorgoroth between 1993 and 1997. He committed suicide in 1999.
