Bands that you want to see reviewed by DLA

Yet another obviously-deserving inclusion that slipped my mind before:

Impetigo

Seconding the first two Mercyful Fate albums here.  It seems to fit in perfectly with a lot of the Speed Metal/Proto-Black Metal already reviewed.  It influenced a lot of Scandinavian Metal after it came onto the scene, both musically, lyrically, and stylistically. In addition, songs like "The Oath" have a neoclassical phrasing that is often praised in the reviews of Morbid Angel and alike.

Fucking seconded.  Their influence to metal is unmistakable, as neither Slayer nor Morbid Angel would have come out the same way without them.  The sense of phrasing and melody this band possessed in its prime was elegant but powerful, twisted yet forceful, much in the manner of a giant of the genre such as Morbid Angel.

Indeed. Have you ever heard the 80s MA demos? The Mercyful Fate influence in those very, very early incantations of blasphemy, even vocally, is palpable, for better or worse!



Speaking of Heavy Metal with the spirit to be featured here : Pagan Altar!

Now that you mention it, if Assuck isn't on the DLA that is a glaring omission.

Is there a reason why Rotting Christ's Non Serviam is not reviewed here?

Revenge and Black Witchery

Yes, I think there should be more too, but there is THIS:

Quote
Hellstorm of Evil Vengeance
Dark Horizon
1999
Production: Varying levels of decent demo.

Review: Black Witchery:
Formed from the same linearist code juxtaposition that gives Demoncy and Incantation their world-shifting feel, Black Witchery use warmer modalities in a death metal style within pure black metal riffing of simple looping structures which converge on the same resonant melody, producing an effect of unsettling mutation within the pragmatically balanced. Headbashing constant ambient throb and crash drumming beats into punchcard the instructions of these archaically harmonious yet relativistically structured and violent riffs. Shrieking peak of vocal tearing complements racing chaos. While songs do not vary dynamic the hypnotic induction of the listener into these worlds of seething and oscillating tones crashing into infinity ferments within the soul an emotional openness to these nihilistic but fantastically dreamlike worlds of simple churning motion.

Conqueror:
The slamming deconstruction of worlds contained in these songs expressing the essence of simple elements of conflict in a mostly rhythmic structure of progression in riff and lyrics throughout each song, with emphasis on circular structures and chorusing as well as extension transition work empowering the more elemental motion riffs with a context in which to rage. As harsh vocals boil guitars race and collide in staccato patterns of blast alternating with fluid ripping styles. More than a continuation of tradition, this is enjoyably nihilistic metal.
Tracklist:

Black Witchery:
1. Unholy Vengeance of War (3:50)
2. Black Witching Metal (4:12)
3. Summoning of Infernal Legions (5:32)
4. Into Damnation Eternal (3:18)
5. Demoniac (2:50) Blasphemy cover
Conqueror:
6. Ross Bay Damnation (Intro) / Chaos Domination (Conquer the Enslaver) (6:21)
8. Hammer of Anti-Christ (6:05)
9. Domitor Invictus (4:42)
10. Command for Triumph (4:42)
Length: 39:35

Black Bitchery is pure fucking garbage. Fuck this band a thousand fold.

fuck fuck fuck fuck, ect


Profoundly simple trem'd inverted power chords placed at the most predictable intervals, witch then follow text book patterns. Laughingly obvious lack of content, sterile songs, blablalalablalba.

I don't need to go on, 100% of their popularity was due to how 'soooper XxgrimXx" the band members looked in their hoods and cloaks.

More from the extreme punk side of things would be nice, such as; Discordance Axis, Hellbastard, Antisect, Siege, Man is the Bastard, Extreme Noise Terror, etc.

Also perhaps some of Antaeus's more recent records and maybe some of this 'orthodox black metal' material in general. I still don't know where I stand on the subject of 'orthodox black metal' myself.

It's surprising that Inquisition - Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult is not on the archive, but an obscure demo of theirs is.

Notable absences:

Barathrum - Hailstorm
Second wave black metal from Finland; this one is a must, but everything from the second album onward should be avoided.

Parabellum - Tempus Mortis
First wave black/death from Columbia; although not highly enjoyable to most ears, deserves attention for its (at that time) unorthodox structural diversions and maniacal spirit.

Organismos - Organismos
Post-2000 death metal/grindcore; the current project of Carlos Mario Perez of Parabellum, this one attempts something that could be described as "cosmic" grindcore, using traditional death/grind elements in a way as to create an entrancing ambiance; not wholly dissimilar to the methods employed by Von, Burzum and Ildjarn.

diSEMBOWELMENT - Transcendence Into The Peripherals
There is a blog review hiding about somewhere, but this band deserves its own page, FFS.

Portal - Outre/Swarth
As above.

Unholy - From The Shadows
As above.

The Ruins of Beverast - Foulest Semen of a Sheltered Elite
German post-2000 black/death/doom hybrid. I'm still weighing this one up, but so far it seems worthy of inclusion into the DLA.

The Australian ANUS/Corrupt sect has reviewed it, but it definitely needs to be moved to the DLA.

Also they have reviewed Portal's material up to and including Outre. Personally I think Portal makes interesting and creative music (...or more accurately noises), but as for staying power has little to none.
