Question
Hey there Sir. I'm Soy from Dallas, Texas.
I want to know the actual translation for words 'Black Metal' and 'Death Metal' (music genres) as I'm a big fan of such metal bands from Norway. Can you please tell ?

Answer
Well, as music genres go, we generally use english. So we'd say "Death metal" and "Black metal".

Literally the translation would be "Dødsmetall" and "Svartmetall", but that sounds very construction worker-ish. And is more likely to call in the site HSE rep, rather than a musical band.

I live here and have been guiding members of my family around when they visit from abroad for years.
