Interzone / Eugenics in action
« on: October 18, 2010, 12:06:14 AM »
Drug addicts across the UK are being offered money to be sterilised by an American charity.

Project Prevention is offering to pay £200 to any drug user in London, Glasgow, Bristol, Leicester and parts of Wales who agrees to be operated on.

The first person in the UK to accept the cash is drug addict "John" from Leicester who says he "should never be a father".

The move has been criticised by some drug charities who work with addicts.


Metal / Modern Black Metal

We've all heard the "well there's nothing post-96 worth mentioning except a few bands" story a hundred times before, so I thought it might be useful to make a list of those that are doing a good job. None of these can compare to the likes of Transilvanian Hunger of course, but if bands like Abigor, Auzhia, Belial,  Impaled Nazarene, Rotting Christ or Sorcier des Glaces merit attention, I feel these do as well.

Here's a small list for starters:

Averse Sefira - Tetragrammaitcal Astygmata
I think enough has already been said about these guys on this site

Black Funeral - Az-i-Dahak
A mixture of ritual, eastern and industrial music, although it's content is not very refreshing, it certainly does break new grounds musically.

Blut aus Nord - The Work Which Transforms God
Astonishing revolutionary work, especially odd considering they made dime a dozen Viking metal before this.

Deströyer 666 - Unchain the Wolves
Although somewhat crude, this band manages to create some surprisingly epic songs in between bathory worship. Their rather straightforward, yet astute lyrics reflect the rather barbaric yet nostalgic tone of the album itself

Nokturnal Mortum - Weltanschauung
Folk metal with a black touch, this album is more than just a couple of flutes added to regular metal: it's song structures and melodies are such that this does not sound contrived at all, but makes it stand out as an authentic tribute to their pagan heritage.

Thorns - Thorns
An updated version of the demo's, slightly suffering from Satyr-syndrome like anything done by moonfog, it still has some remarkable songs on it, mostly those that are more ambient than the rest (Vortex, Shifting Channels, Underneath the Universe part I), with a strong emphasis on the vastness of the void beyond our own planet.

Wyrd - Huldrafolk
Although part of this album is definitely strongly influenced by Burzum, songs like Ajieke and Huldrafolk sound too joyful by far to be ripped from elsewhere in the generally gloomy BM scene.

This is only a start of course, additions and comments are welcome, but please don't make a list without explanation: I'd hate to see this moved to Moron because of survey tendencies.
