Is it time to include Hipster BM as a tag on MS?
Lastfm has it but the description is kind of vague: http://www.last.fm/tag/hipster+black+metal
HBM is probably more than "Black metal for people who like new things." So what do you think, will HBM be a tag in the future or is just a derotagory expression that soon will die out? Should it be added or is there any better description? Or maybe the black metal tag is enough for the bands that are called HBM?

There are atmo BM, melo BM, symho BM, Bm and NSBM(what is most because of lyrics since instruments cant make ns sound unless they had adolf picture, and gothic black is under gothic fmily, black doom under doom, rest of BM don't exist

Blackgaze is short for "shoegaze black metal". It's already there.

Considering that almost every album one could call "hipster black metal" can already be covered by established genres such as blackgaze, post-black, atmoblack or even experimental rock (looking at you, Liturgy), it's a clear "no" from me too.

Besides, most people will take that label as an insult before they take it as a genre anyway, so it would be incendiary to even consider making it official.

Aren't all black metallers hipsters deep down inside?

If hipster black metal was recognized as such, it would no longer be hipster. The hipster exists only as a self-conscious negation.

Does this count as hipster black metal?



(or at least some hipster parody of black metal)
