Metal / Impaled Nazarene update
« on: December 08, 2010, 12:54:30 PM »
Impaled Nazarene have finished their newest album and have placed some material for free listening:
A completely free EP in their homepage
Roughly 1-minute-long samples of their new songs in their Gayspace page
Sounds pretty dull "blackened" melodic hardcore/grindcore for me, but judge for yourselves.

Interzone / Hessian desktop wallpaper

The original image

(right click --> "View Image" to see the full resolution)
I adjusted the brightness/contrast in order to get the background truly black and removed some spots manually. For the sake of symmetry, I removed the text as well. Set this as wallpaper as centered and set the desktop background color to black - this way, it looks very elegant at least on my 1280x1024 screen.

I'd love to use coverpics of quality metal albums like this as my wallpapers, but even the best repository for images like this, Truemetal's wallpapers is pretty damn dated - the maximum width of the images is 1024px and the most recent submissions are from 2001. A new scan archive with width of 2048px should be made(screens wider than that are still pretty rare).

(once again, right click and view..)
Made this through messing with alpha channel. Unfortunately, I couldn't make any bigger(good quality) version. The black space below is of the width of the taskbar.

Interzone / Rotten.com
« on: June 15, 2010, 09:41:14 PM »
The thread below of the archived old ANUS reminded me of this another old "cult" website. Back in 1996, Rotten epitomized the "shock" websites that could retrospectively be called the first-wave shocksites: the Web made the exchange of disturbing images far more convenient than ever before, but finding, obtaining and scanning them still required work and shock imagery wasn't so abundant until the second-wave shocksites like The Young News Channel(NSFW link, duh), which are founded on 2 of the more recent technical developments: streaming video and video recording on cellphone --> the shock content has become far more ubiquitious.

At the same time, Rotten has faded to the background; it still hosts only still-images and as of now, gets updated about once in a year. But there is another part of Rotten that probably isn't so well-known, its "library" section - there are a lot of incisive articles of various topics eschewed by the mainstream and the attitude is somewhat anusian. ANUS might have an article about Jenkem, but Rotten Library has an article about Kami, the HIV-positive muppet :)
Also, these Dilbert-comics had once been hosted in Rotten(as being stated in the incomplete compilation page).

There's a thing that bugs my mind: I have a vague memory of reading either from Wikipedia or The Text File Archive that the founder of Rotten might be aquainted with the arch-anusites(after all, he also used to be a BBS operator).

Interzone / Marduk vs. Lady Gaga
« on: June 07, 2010, 08:50:05 AM »
I know that I'm being a complete dork, but I was laughing my ass off while making these, so I thought that I might as well share them..



I wonder if this qualifies as proper ANUS humor..

Metal / Fanmade music videos for metal
« on: March 05, 2010, 09:13:56 PM »

Zyklon-B - Warfare
Hellhammer - The Third of The Storms
Bolt Thrower - ...For Victory
Bathory - The Return of Darkness And Evil
Immortal - Antarctica
Hail of Bullets - Ordered Eastward

I've collected here videos which have particularly strong resonance between the imagery and the music.
I'm aware that the later Immortal and Hail of Bullets aren't being held in particularly high esteem on this site, but I think that the videos for them are good enough to be included.
Have you found anything similar? :)
