It's Devin just having fun. I really hesitate to even consider it a serious song.

No doubt he's having fun, but he's taken an original approach to a classic with awesome musicianship and vocals. At least, IMO, that's basically what constitutes a cool cover.

Not really, it just wasn't very good. But it succeeded in what it attempted to do: get DT to climax.

Moonsorrow are the brand of folk I'd recommend to people that don't like folk metal, or are at least put off by the modern folk fad of Korpiklaani, Turisas and plenty of worse bands (though I love me some Ensiferum). Depending on whether or not black metal is your thing, you may want to try later Moonsorrow, but Verisakeet would be a good starting point.

A 10000 word thesis on the development of black metal, using a maximum of 3-4 songs as examples (and citing a whole lot more, I assume). Possible? Or is this more of a 25k thing with more examples?
With black metal I feel it'd be hard enough to sum it up with 10 bands/songs, though it's not so much about summing up BM as a whole as it is showing how the genre has developed throughout history to become one of the more progressive music genres.

Whether or not you consider black metal one of the more progressive genres really depends on how broad your definition of the genre is. In any case, 10.000words is more than enough space to go through the history and development of black metal. Curious as to why you can't have more examples, though.

A couple of other fun news, for me, is that I'll be seeing Ulver tomorrow (the former metal band) and Meshuggah next saturday. Meshuggah are one of the headliners of this year's Inferno festival and will be the last band to play, if I remember correct. I'll probably catch Pentagram and Napalm Death too, though I haven't listened a whole lot to either.

Loomis and Van Williams quit Nevermore, which means I'll either be seeing Nevermore without Loomis or I won't be seeing them at all.
