    Black Metal Chords - Progressions

    So, I presume that at least some of you play Black Metal songs, and I wondered if you could share some of your favorite chords or progressions, so I can get some new ideas for melodies.

    An example is this the classic
    kind of chord.

    Don't have too much time to develop as much as I'd like to, but any minor chord is going to fit the bill, especially in a progression implying minor chords separated by second minor, minor third, major third of dimished fifth intervals. Tritones (power chords with a diminished fifth) or simple power chords have also been used quite a lot.

    If I remember well, Ihsahn from Emperor had a column named Left Hand Path in Guitar world ; everything is on Youtube !
