The Black  


The Black is noteworthy for historical reasons, being one band that featured Dissection's Jon Nödtveidt. They recorded The Priest Of Satan in 1994 (Dissection was active and had recorded by then, so either the two bands were alive simultaneously, or this band existed before Dissection and the album was released posthumously), with the style being a simplistic death/black mixture, with scant keyboard touches and not a lot of variation in the songs. Disbanded for years, the drummer calling himself The Black put together a new lineup, and Alongside Death was released in 2008.
