Okay... Intestine Baalism is going in the right direction.  Thank you.
It reminds me of Sacramentum "Cries from a Restless Soul":

Any other suggestions?

That, my little nothing, gets you removed.

I've been away for a while... Is Crow a moderator now? A kind of forum death-squad?  Is he able to ban people at will?  Maybe this is the forum-eugenics thing that certain of us have been hoping for, for years.  Still, the vibe is kind of intense.  I don't love it.

Hi. It's a passage in Neuraxis "The Apex".

I'm taken by that melody 1:45 to 2:20, with the major & minor triads, and triplet tremolo picking.  It's got a majestic/heroic feel which is a nice change of pace from dark/chromatic shit.

Can anyone point me towards something to give a similar vibe?  THANKS

Well, he quit black metal anyways:


"...music, creating, it’s like therapy for me, and if you have a therapist who’s making you more angry and not doing you any good, you fire them and think about getting a new one."

But maybe he was never really IN it:
"The music itself only had a firm grip on me for a few years... I never learned anything from it, musically or aside from that; it never “empowered” me or anything like that. I don’t think anyone would be able to tell me what I’m missing out on by not having it in my life anymore."

How about Demoncy Joined in Darkness?  Though you may find it is merely Death Metal with Black Metal atmosphere...

Metal / Re: THE MISFITS- "Earth A.D."
« on: December 23, 2012, 09:14:32 PM »
This album presents micro-songs, in the due punk fashion, blasted forth with a bpm rate that is dangerously close to Slayer's "Hell Awaits." Guitar technique uses disharmonies (Slayer), Nihilistic power chord churning, morbid thematics (Slayer), Crash cymbol usage in what would later appear in Speed Metal drumming similar to "Altar of Sacrifice," and ghoulish face paint aesthetic closer to what would come to be "Corpse Paint" than ever before.

I'm necroposting this to ask...has anybody seen extreme metal bands cite the Misfits, and 'Earth A.D.' specifically?  The guitars are a richly suffocating miasma, tendrils of feedback slinking at every turn, and such gruesome lyrics.

This was the first album I heard that was anywhere close to extreme (in like 1993), truly scary shit that you DON'T want parents finding!  It was the first thing I thought of when I heard Black Metal and Death Metal a decade later.

IRONICALLY...I just began downloading dISEMBOWLMENT 'Transcendence into the Peripherial [sic]' from DepositFiles!

I don't know the best place to start--I've only heard 'Tetragrammatical Astygmata' & their final, 'Advent Parallax'.  The latter has clear, Necromorbus production.  I've been contemplating it for a couple of years, it still reveals a ton of new shit, I can't quite understand it, but it seduces me nevertheless.

Not even a combination of several different influences.  Just the same hypnotic style of Black Metal that's been around since Transylvanian Hungar.

You must've been referring to 'Tetragrammatical Astygmata'?
How in the WORLD is that similar to 'Transylvanian Hunger', let alone Darkthrone in general?  Because you heard some blast beats?

Naw, man.  What about the Immolation-structures, 15 riffs/song, tritones all over the place, relentless drumfills, etc?

Incantation "Vanquish in Vengeance" -- have any of you had the chance to meditate on this?  How would you rate it on a scale where "Onward to Golgotha" is 10?

Metal / 'One Man Metal' documentary -- Xasthur comes out the closet
« on: November 14, 2012, 11:58:34 AM »

Though I'm not a fan of Leviathan, Xasthur, or Striborg, I found this doco really entertaining and interesting.  Most compelling and fascinating was that Xasthur seemed almost non-human, a cipher.

You see Striborg mention he's a husband and father.  Leviathan explaining his entire life story, showing us his old house, photo albums of his deceased girlfriend, the love of his life.  He 'fucking hates being around people', but seems like he could have a conversation.

However, Xasthur reveals barely any concrete connection to the human world. 

He mentions that hypothetically meeting a like-minded person would make him "...glad", though he stutters even trying to speak that word, as though he can barely conceive it happening.  He lacks the Hessian signifiers of longhair, band shirts, leather jackets, bad-ass beard--no hairstyle at all. His eyes dart about, he fidgets, he looks like an old dementia patient in the body of a 38 year old. 

I feel bad for the guy--seems like a life of loneliness and isolation turned outward in rage.

Regarding his hit album, "Telepathic with the Deceased":

He seems to embody the True Kvlt Authentic Misanthrope we've long demanded from our Black Metal: writing about hate, despair, and death, but  NOT hanging out, drinking beers, having girlfriends, working in graphic design, or having any hope whatsoever. 

It's fucked up.  Can't wait to see what you guys think!

The degeneration of society effects all genres. The artists that put in hard work mastering their craft seldom get the attention they deserve.


Certainly you're not citing this video as one such artist?  He's a great example of the dumbing down. Niggaz be rappin' some alphabet soup on Sesame Street, or he's at a spelling bee!

That chorus of 'Beez in the Trap' reminds me of the continuing degeneration of rap; lines of a couplet can now end in the same word>>>>

'Bitches sayin' shit and the ain't say nothin'
A hundred motherfuckaz can't tell me nothin''

How about Rick Ross 'MC Hammer':

I'm riding dirty, my dick clean
She talk dirty but her mouth clean
Bitch I'm MC hammer.. I'm about cream'

Thank you for making this list; it's really interesting to see albums situated historically in relation to each other, and it helps in a disciplined exploration of the genres. 

I'm puzzled by your choice to include average bands. 
Am I the only one who has never heard of Furbowl, Dr. Shrinker, Krabathor, or Lepra? 
This is a lifetime of material to hear!
