How to make this easier:

1. Tell us which movie named Hostel you're talking about.


2. Give us a time in the movie when the track plays ("at 16:52, ...").

3. If you're really good, upload a sound or video sample.

4. Check this first:


DARK FUNERAL to re-issue first six albums starting in September; new vocalist search announced


After recently signing to Century Media Records for their upcoming studio album, DARK FUNERAL is now ready to present a series of stunning re-issues for their previous six albums that offer melodic yet blasting satanic hymns in absolute perfection. Created with the band's close cooperation, the first batch of DARK FUNERAL re-issues covers the self-titled MCD (plus bonus material), The Secrets Of The Black Arts (including the re-mixed/re-mastered 8-track Unisound mix as a bonus), and Vobiscum Satanas (including live tracks). These titles will be released in Europe on September 9 and in North America on November 12 via Century Media Records.


In regards to these upcoming re-issues (plus DARK FUNERAL's new vocalist search), the band's mastermind, Lord Ahriman (guitar), comments:


"I'm proud to announce that we are finally doing proper re-issues of our classic albums through Century Media. And to really spice things up, I have dug deep into my personal photo archives to come up with some killer photos/flyers, previously mostly unseen by the public eye. These will be the definite versions of our classic albums, especially the nice vinyls! Each album also contains detailed liner notes-- and besides myself, Themgoroth, Dan Swanö & some other old friends that were present at the time I formed the band contributed to this. Unfortunately, I could not finish off these re-issues with Blackmoon, who sadly passed away earlier this year, but he was fully aware of them and for 'In The Sign...' and 'The Secrets...' we at least added a tribute page to commemorate him.

We've just ended our festival season with a killer show at Germany's Summer Breeze festival. Now, my/our main focus will be to resume writing the next masterpiece, tentatively set for release in 2014. More news to come...

DARK FUNERAL is currently looking for a permanent new vocalist - preferable from Scandinavia. Serious applications can be sent to vocalist@darkfuneral.se!"


All re-issues will be available on black vinyl, in addition to a limited transparent blue vinyl (only 100 copies!) at CM Distro. With previously unseen photos, extensive liner notes by Olivier "Zoltar" Badin (Terrorizer / Iron Fist), bonus material and revamped layouts, these re-mastered classics are essential for every black metal maniac out there! See below for each album's track-listing (all bonus tracks are also included on the respective vinyls).

This is one of the better things to cross our desks recently.

Humanicide, and others, do you remember any other death metal we've liked that's new to the 1999-present time period?

I have trouble recalling many if any. Acerbus, sure, but after that?

ABOMINANT: Onward to Annihilation Out Now on Deathgasm Records


Onward to Annihilation, the 10th studio album from Kentucky Death Metal veterans ABOMINANT, is out now on Deathgasm Records. 


Two decades of violent death metal warfare have led ABOMINANT to this unrelenting and brutal statement of USDM! Featuring the band's most memorable collection of material to date, including a wicked cover of HYPOCRISY's "Left to Rot" and a refreshing molten metal surprise surprise called "Hold your Ground," Onward to Annihilation is ABOMINANT's career best. Metal above all!   


Album track "Legions of Hell" is now streaming at this location. 


From now until Friday, August 30th, DeadRhetoric.com and Deathgasm Records are offering the chance to win a copy of Onward to Annihilation, along with MASADA's Hideous Rot EP and FAITHXTRACTOR's The Great Shadow Infiltrator. To enter, visit www.deadrhetoric.com/news/deathgasm-records-cd-giveaway/

Onward to Annihilation

Hold your Ground

Beside the Dying Flame

Legions of Hell

Heed the warning and take cover in preparation. On September 3rd Sevared Records will release Sorrow and Skin from Boston Death Metal Force SCALPEL.

Death Metal is a visceral art that is dependent upon the extreme dedication of its loyal fans. SCALPEL has no other purpose than to deliver a version of this art to those same fans whose lives have been claimed by the likes of SUFFOCATION, CARCASS, and DEATH. It is in this vein that SCALPEL constructs its own brutal dirges, devoid of genre restriction and with an eagerness to explore the darker realms of music. The band is rooted firmly in the old school aesthetic, vigilant to revive the gnarly riffage and macabre lyrical content of so many vicious death metal acts. SCALPEL creates its own art to be maddening and precise, to fulfill the connotations of its name.

Nefarious Realm has posted the exclusive premier of the title track from Sorrow and Skin. Check it out at this location. 

For more selections from Sorrow and Skin, including album tracks "Sentinels of Severed Flesh" and "Ripe," live footage and more, visit www.youtube.com/scalpelofficial.

Pre-order the album at www.scalpel.bigcartel.com.
SCALPEL will be performing a show with the mighty GORGUTS on September 8th at The Palladium in Worcester, Mass. in celebration of the release of Sorrow and Skin. The band will follow that gig with another blockbuster opening for MORBID ANGEL on November 10th at The Middle East in Cambridge, Mass. For details and updates, follow SCALPEL at the links listed below.

Truthfully, what is so bad about this? Do you identify at any level with the people who make or enjoy this music? Do you have high expectations of them? Does this music have any influence on people that you care about? Or is it just an encapsulated representation of the hateful things that humans do generally? Clearly you are never going to get around to suicide if this is your main reason; I can give you some more substantial reasons if you are interested.

All music, art, etc. is programming.

Program us into idiocy, and that's what you'll get.

That is one way of looking at it, for sure, but immortality is real and possible.
It does not apply to the identity, though. That is definitely mortal.

« on: August 19, 2013, 05:08:24 PM »
Some of the greatest music ever written was "absolute music", meaning that it did not reference anything outside of itself,  lyrically or thematically. Someday there will be a return to this form and the blaze of brilliance created by its innovators will cause all of this human-focused music to pale and wither.

What are some good examples of this absolute music?

A modified fascism, involving a monarch, and a modified feudal-system.

I'm on board with this.

Basically, aristocracy + caste system.

What's most interesting about this political system is that it's an anti-political system.

The goal isn't ideology, but an organic society.

It's basically anarchy with strong cultural principles.
