Dunno. The above is a commitment to listen and assess historically/artistically with an open mind. Some of these will end up nowhere on the site. Others will become full-on reviews; however, to answer your unspoken question, outside of "historically important metal releases" most work is going into neoclassical reviews because it is more effective at communicating with our audience and faster to update.

Admin: I can post a version of the list in alphabetical order if you wish. Whilst not a big problem or anything, it is at least more presentable than a scramble of names.

Let me know.

I would agree, I'd even extend it to is doom project Stabat Mater. But i dont see it happening for 2 reasons:

a)He failed to understand it's impossible to play worthy black metal ever after 1996.
b)He doesn't fit the anus politically.

Uh...huh....so tell me again, what does that list of artists have that CB does not?

Foolish to judge on one measly split record.  You should listen to "Night Of The Unholy Flames" for a start

Actually, for the art portions of the site, we are not concerned with politics at all.

You'll find no Angry Aryans or AK-47 reviews, but that's for musical reasons -- relevance being the prime factor.

This is not from a desire to be inclusive, but when talking art, one must stay focused on art and let all other factors go to hell.

When talking politics, one must remember that art is a sensual and not exclusively logical medium, and thus many of one's favorite artists (listening to Napalm Death "F.E.D." today) are to be appreciated for their art/aesthetics but not their conclusions.

For example, I like "The Catcher in the Rye" but I don't agree with Salinger politically; I think he does a good job of pointing out where society is nutty, although for a better description I read Kaczynski or Huntington.

You're right -- this is helpful.

Note that I did mean what I said in a way, however there was a little ;) to it.

I was aware of what you answered, I guess I did not express myself properly...

When I said "he" and "politics" I did not aim at Mikko himself and his political views but rather the "message" expressed through his music. Which is, at least the way I perceive it, that not "society" or anything of that sort is what has gone wrong, but rather that the human mind itself is sick, perverted twisted. Given that, the music does not call for activity to change that and but invites the listener to watch humanity, laugh about it, enjoy the sickness and so on.

That's what I think goes against the "politics" here and is the reason why I doubt that CB or SM will be reviewed (or even understood?) here ;)


Edit:
Oh, and on the main topic: I know neither the band itself nor the American "speed" metal movement as a whole too well, but it seems striking to me that Flotsam and Jetsam aren't mentioned...
