Metal / Re: Jeff Hanneman Dead at 49

The comprehensive cause of his death remains unknown, but I think the safest assumption would be that both the necrotizing fasciitis infection and long-term heavy ethanol use were contributing factors to the liver failure.

Designs for posters, t-shirts, etc. about him are already mushrooming everywhere, most often containing the phrase R.I.P., but I think the best commemorating phrase/slogan for him would be:

Stricken to live
Hell on Earth
Shackled and bound we lie
Praise of death
Life's a dream
We're only living to die

It would be hard for me to dislike Mentors. A significant amount of their music is considerably more creative/skillful than the output of almost any of the GG Allin's bands. Also, the lyrics/vocals of El Duce are exceptionally hilarious(the most honest man ever..).


During the late eighties and early nineties, the development of death metal was starting to mature, with a lot of artists (more or less)completely separating themselves from speed metal. As a parallel development, certain artists remained to technically perfect the speed/death sound, creating some truly excellent metal: Examples of such artists could be Massacra, Rigor Mortis, Sadus and..

Demolition Hammer: While this artist is a bit more low-brow than the ones mentioned before, it's still very good.

Brenoritvrezorkre is one of the smaller but more interesting projects of Les Legions Noires, being ambient/noise BM.
Their attempt to execute the concept of somebody visiting Hell with an audio recorder in his pocket is IMHO more successful than anything that Abruptum has ever made.

Manowar - Warriors of the World, the cutting edge of metal back in 2003. :)

Arghoslent represents the minority of melodic death metal artists that haven't forgotten about the death part. They combine the "war machine" rhythm of mid-era Bolt Thrower into the "heavy metal" melodic stylings of Dissection/Sacramentum.

They can be compared to another excellent artist, Infester(some of the most doomed death metal ever) in a way that the racist overtones of their lyrics have made them an outsider artist, arousing polarized opinions.

Some of the more interesting BM I've heard recently:

Void Meditation Cult live
Featuring songs from their latest demo and the Sperm of Antichrist demo. Unsuprisingly, the cover song of the set is Joined In Darkness. :)

Ascension is an anonymous 5-piece that most likely features all the three members of Katharsis. Their music represents the same breed with Aidspell Omega, Katharsis and Watain, but I'd dare to say that this is better than any of those, par Katharsis' 666.

Cultes Des Ghoules deviates from the typical Polish BM sound(of mostly boring Marduk worship) with a more visceral and primitive sound, drawing influence from Hellhammer and early Mütiilation.

Aosoth's latest features more DMDS-influenced sound than Antaeus/Aosoth has ever had before, this could be a good direction.

Nyogthaeblisz is pretty noisy even by war metal standards, sounding like earliest Beherit and VON observed through the lense of Last Days of Humanity. It's messy and over-the-top, but in a long time, I haven't heard metal that would scream so hard for POSER HOLOCAUST. :)

A good companion to this album would be Bloody Vengeance by Vulcano, also from 1986 and sounding like a bridge between NME and Sarcofago.

As we're waiting, let us listen to Blight and Darkness by Sperm of Antichrist, the closest thing to Joined in Darkness that I've ever heard.

Use Windows, get virus and corrupt hardrive

Use OSX, get HIV and die.                                                                             

Use Linux.

Use Ubuntu and become HIV++ :)

Metal / Re: Black Funeral
« on: October 06, 2011, 10:02:14 PM »
Their first album, Vampyr - Throne of the Beast is great too, Empire of Blood is mostly just re-recordings of it with somewhat higher tempo and more over-the-top vocals. I prefer the originals, being the closest thing to Les Legions Noires that I've ever heard.

Thanks for pointing out Vukolak, this one sounds very much like Belkètre(whereas VTotB sounds primarily like Vlad Tepes and early Mütiilation).
A peculiar observation upon seeking for Black Funeral on Youtube: the first drop-down suggestion is 'black funeral services', for black people by black people - entering 'white funeral services' provides no counterpart.

-A pretty interesting article about the multimillennial tradition of the "third gender" created by removing little boys' balls.
This case seems to be the same thing, only medically more sophisticated.

From his music recommendations:
Saga is a courageous, Swedish, female nationalist-oriented musician who creates pop-music with
patriotic texts. She is, as far as I know, the best and most talented patriotic musician in the English
speaking world. And for those of you, like myself, who hates “metal”, Saga is one of the few
sources available that offers quality patriotic pop-music with brilliant texts. Most of the tracks are in
English and some are in Swedish.

The most rational explanation so far is that the bombing was a mere diversion, as the real goal was to demoralize the Social Democratic party(and its smaller allies) and to kill as-many-as-possible of their future politicians.

The most intriguing characteristic about A.B.B. is that he doesn't seem to fit in any extremist mold, but seems just a person gone sick with the status quo.

IIRC, nobody has been executed in Norway since WW2, so he won't share the fate of Timothy McVeigh. The maximum prison sentence for anything in Norway is 21 years, which in this case would be ~84 days for every life he took.

As for the "millionaire" status, 1 Norwegian krone is ~0.185$. Some multiples of 185000$ would be an impressive wealth, but he probably isn't a millionaire in dollars/euros.

One more notable contributor to the traditional DM revival would be War Master, a band primarily influenced by early-/mid-era Bolt Thrower.
Their Chapel of the Apocalypse demo is very solid, even if nothing really special.
