i've never had any problems with CMI, although they are far slower than, say, Amazon.

Hey all.  I haven't been around here in awhile and it seems you've done some reorganizing again - no more classifieds section.  I hope this is still allowed, as I think there are several of you that may have an interest in a couple of these.

Have a look:


Thanks.  Pass it on.

Metal / Re: Modern Black Metal
« on: September 18, 2007, 10:48:45 AM »
Some of the more listenable modern bands (eg. Ohtar) I find to be pretty much like pop music, not so much in the sense that their music resembles pop, but in the sense that I listen to it in the same way and for the same reasons that I imagine pop fans listen to music. To one habituated to the black metal aesthetic these bands are easily digestible, presenting familiar elements in a palatable form - the music becomes in a way a comfort blanket, listened to as a background hum that makes you feel good and reaffirms your self image (as a black metal fan, and hence special), when it should be a direct challenge to you and a stimulus to thought. I think that it is possible to fall into a habit of listening to even the best of black metal in this way also.

this summarizes what i presume to be the purpose and driving force behind the banner-waving of this site very well.  it is because of this that i always find the first reaction to most on these boards to things like latter deathspell omega - namely, to shit upon them - amusing.  are they not doing exactly as "requested/required" here by creating still dark and feeling music not of the standard mold and in this way challenging the listener?

if you are looking for the same feeling garnered from earlier black metal while listening to music, i personally find myself listening to more and more dark ambient/drone/noise-type of music, like raison d'etre, vidnaObama, dissecting table and the like.

Metal / Harkonin signs with Battlegod Productions
« on: August 10, 2007, 01:07:06 AM »
Harkonin are pleased to announce that they have agreed to a multi-album deal with Australia's Battlegod Productions. "We are proud to share a label with such bands as Dark Order, Saxorior, Buio Omega, and of course Baltak", says drummer Clayton Gore. "We couldn't be more excited. After numerous discussions, it's clear that we share the same outlook and goals for the band. The support Battlegod has already shown us is tremendous and we look forward to an excellent relationship." The band's self-released 2006 recording "Ghanima" will be released by Battlegod soon and a new follow-up album by early 2009.

The band still has a very limited number of their initial pressing of "Ghanima" that they will continue to sell through their website until the Battlegod version goes to presses. If you are interested in this very limited run CD, please visit http://www.harkonin.com for ordering and pricing information.

Metal / Eulogy - new album '08
« on: August 10, 2007, 01:05:34 AM »
After a long hiatus, founding memeber Jarrett Pritchard has invoked the core trio of Tampa's now legendary death metal outfit EULOGY. Rejoined by Jason Avery, who spent many years fronting MONSTROSITY and drummer Clayton Gore of St. Louis' HARKONIN, the band is set to record a new album beginning on September 6 in Orlando with Jarrett at the controls.

Commented Jarrett: "At this point I have completed eight songs for the record and it promises not to dissapoint. On bass we have enlisted Mike Pogionne of MONSTROSITY/LECHURUS NOCTURNE and at this time second guitar duties will be filled by none other than longtime friend Rob Barrett (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE PLOW, MALEVOLENT CREATION, SOLSTICE). At this point we have not approached any labels about the release and we intend to have the cap on it December 15, 2007 for an early 2008 release."

A promo video featuring fragments of new riffs in demo form can be found at this location.

For more information, visit the EULOGY MySpace page.

at least people with talent are exploring some of the ideas brought forth in this thread earlier:

TOMAHAWK: More 'Anonymous' Details Revealed

TOMAHAWK, the "all-star" band featuring former FAITH NO MORE vocalist Mike Patton, ex-HELMET drummer Jon Stainer and former JESUS LIZARD guitarist Duane Denison, has revealed the track listing for its new album, "Anonymous", due on June 19 via Ipecac. It is as follows:

01. War Song
02. Mescal Rite I
03. Ghost Dance
04. Red Fox
05. Cradle Song
06. Antelope Ceremony
07. Song of Victory
08. Omaha Dance
09. Sun Dance
10. Mescal Rite 2
11. Totem
12. Crow Dance
13. Long, Long Weary Day

TOMAHAWK's third release, "Anonymous", links the outfit with the Native American culture that bore its name. A thirteen-track album that reverentially explores and reinterprets the darker, more recessed ancestral music created by North America's indigenous people, the title reflects the countless individuals who contributed to these songs but went un-credited throughout history.

At the turn of the millennium, Duane Denison toured with HANK WILLIAMS III, frequently finding himself on Indian reservations. "I was somewhat disappointed by the Native bands," Duane explains. "They were usually very conventional, kind of blues and country type stuff, or too much like 'new age' music. I figured there must be native music somewhere that was more aggressive, spookier, and more kinetic." Duane began to research the culture's music; about a year into his research he found books that were written around the time of Teddy Roosevelt's presidency, a period in U.S. history when Indian culture and artifacts were in vogue. The books, dated to the early 20th century, recorded transcriptions of the songs contained herein. The titles "Totem", "Mescal Rite 1", "Song of Victory" are all true to the names uncovered by the people who originally transcribed them, although Duane says "Red Fox" was altered to be more accessible. One song, "Long, Long Weary Day", is a non-Native American "parlor song" song of the same time period, and also uncredited.

Now a three-piece, TOMAHAWK recorded "Anonymous" in two-parts. Duane Denison and John Stanier recorded guitars and drums (respectively) in Nashville while Mike Patton added vocals and samples at Vulcan Studios in San Francisco.
