Join us on the inaugural DMU Podcast where we go through the influence that The Red in the Sky Is Ours had on the Mexican Death metal scene and how it spawned two albums that sought to recreate its grandeur. The Chasm Deathcult for Eternity: The Triumph! and Cenotaph Riding Our Black Oceans
As Discord has shown itself to be completely useless in protecting the privacy of its users, we at DMU have decided to move on to Riot. You can join on this link #DM@matrix.org:matrix.org. A quick reminder that the song contest is currently underway and that we are still accepting submissions.
Over the years, people have debated whether music about evil, violence, disease, the occult, death, doom, despair, misery, sodomy, war, killing, mutilation, and desecration can be healthy. The thinking generally goes that exposure to these things makes us more likely to act out “fantasies” of them.
A most unexpected collaboration has emerged in the realm of pseudo-Black Metal, with the announcement that Swedish tabloid star Kvarforth of DSBM “legends” Shining has teamed up with “smooth criminal-turned-guitarist” Kirill Krowli and drummer “J” from much-hyped Spanish War Metal act Teitanblood to form a new band called Lice.
Drowning themselves in the Manowar aesthetic in their lyrics and in the overall feeling of their compositions. The music is caught between early Slayer/mercyful Fate with hints of Exodus. Headless Pez may be very tongue in cheek with their ridiculous look and their Manowar turned up to 11 gimmick but this album shows glimpses of something greater.
The picture above is the Lascaux cave, a beautiful piece of prehistoric art. The text below is just some random thoughts on innate violence, its sonic counterpart, animals and technology, but the purpose is not to elaborate on them. Rather, the purpose is mere curiosity and exploration.
At some point even the ablest writer runs out of adjectives and nouns to describe a bad release, but in this case, I will unleash the nastiest word of all: fraud. This album, the typical moron normies pretending to be black metal fans, and the industry that supports it are all frauds.
It is time for the third song contest in our hopes of finding out what the underground can offer. The rules have been stated before can be found here. Are there still any Hessians able to dethrone previous winner Salustiano? Or will we receive Tulio Baars like songs?
In other news, here at DMU we are preparing the first ever DMU Podcast and shall include reader submitted questions. We await your questions in the comments or at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask our readers to keep questions within the sphere of metal and other related genres.
