Metal / Ancient Wisdom - For Snow Covered the Northland
« on: April 11, 2012, 12:57:23 PM »
Just found this album out and wanted to share it here. Released in 1996, written and recorded between 1994 and 1995. I wonder why I've never heard of this album until now. This album comes together through syncretization of the neo-classical European styles of the day. Beautiful melodies recall moments from the Karelian Isthmus, Oneiricon - The White Hypnotic and His Majesty at the Swamp. While clearly ideologically aligned to the Norwegians this album draws heavily from the Hellenic school. As with Septic Flesh(just hearing them gave me additional perspective on this) or Dissection, this album sees an occasional foray into heavy metal rooted lead guitar line, but they're never disjointing and serve to reconcile the various metal traditions into a piece Neo-classical High Art. Uploaded this into audiofile, link below. Never heard any of their other albums. What ya think?

Checked this band out during an insomniac listening session. Bizarre.

Ophidian Wheel was pretty sweet. What else is worth checking out?

Does anyone know of other forums, or metal websites, that are basically from the perspective of this place?

Everything, and everyone, has its time and has its prime. Who is in their prime now?

Nihilism =/= Conservative Bible values with a cool inverted cross necklace and a scary album in the CD player.

Just thought I'd point this out.

Interzone / Do any of you Hessians support Ron Paul?
« on: April 04, 2012, 09:01:49 PM »
He is a Christian. He doesn't believe in evolution, yet he is a doctor. So the Dawkins in me is driven mad by this. There are many other issues in his platform I also would disagree with.

But of all the candidates I have ever seen, he is clearly the only one outside the sphere of corruption. He is not the Hessian's ideal candidate, but we're out of options otherwise.

Some of you may take the stance that any attempt at fixing America now is futile, and we should just wait for the collapse. But I cannot sit idle and do nothing.

I support Ron Paul.

Metal / Impiety

Somewhat ridiculous, deliberately over the top and masters of savage necksnapping riffcraft, they've carried the flag of Angelcorpse since 1999. I uploaded most of their full lengths to the audiofile section. The DLA review for Ravage and Conquer is right on point. And that extends to the majority of the band's fairly consistent career. Fuck all these retro-thrash bands and wannabes, Impiety play bullet-belt metal better than anyone in the last 12 years. If Teitanblood, Toxic Holocaust and Destroyer 666 were as metal as they try to be, they'd be Impiety. Impiety draw from the war metal school of Blasphemy and Sarcofago but without relying on that annoying and mushy riff style. They draw from the speed metal of Kreator and Sodom without coming across as a third rate modern imitator. They worship at the Altar of Madness with Angelcorpse, but never rip these bands off either.

Almost all of their albums are in the same basic style, but they never sound tired or redundant due to the fact Shyaithan recruits new members for every single album. Skullfucking Armageddon is their most speed metal styled, and the least death metal. Paramount Evil was comprised of primarily Revenge members is the most overtly Death Metal. Worshipers of the Seventh Tyranny is a surprisingly ambitious concept album, and their most brooding and doom inspired.

War Metal way before War Metal was cool. This is torment.

As far as I know, this was all they released. I wanted to share it with you guys.

I came across this band last night wasting time on the internet, linked by a dullard who used it as an example of "nerdy" power metal he can't understand. Immediately blown away. I was not surprised when I found out this band was connected to Twisted Tower Dire. The former singer of both bands died in 2010, which I also didn't know. Greatly saddened by that news.

Cargest, being an Englishmen of nobility and pride I am sure if you didn't know of this you will appreciate it. Could you point me in the direction of other Anglo-Saxon epic battle metal?

I'll find a quality copy of this for audiofile.

And there are obviously small tribes that we don't know exist yet. I find it amazing that with everything in the modern world, that people like this could still exist. We should leave these people alone until it is absolutely necessary to interfere or contact them in some way.

Within the next six months Hezbollah will be implicated in a domestic terror attack, likely on a subway or other rail transit system. 50-200 casualties. Iran will be invaded with hours or days.

I expect devout worship, large donations of money and sex with all your girlfriends(mothers for those who live at home) when my prophecy comes to pass.

Metal / Divine Intervention revisted.
« on: March 15, 2011, 04:45:05 AM »
Tremendously underrated. While it took me many years to warm up to it and see past some of the differences with past albums(and it's flaws), I've come to appreciate the album immensely over the last couple years. I'd even rank it higher than Season in the Abyss which suffers from a lack of purpose and aggression at times. Unlike Seasons, Divine never sounds content and the aggression doesn't seem as forced. For an album recorded in 1994 when the next generation of Death Metal had already started to wane, as a band's sixth album, in that context it is almost a triumph.
