Just accept it, listen to the greats and be thankful that the music exists at all. Just listen to classical music if you really want to be satisfied in the same way.

This is pretty good advice. Classical music, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Fripp and Eno, Dead Can Dance, Lycia, Sophia, VNV Nation... that's about all that doesn't bore me to tears these days, and 95% of the time it's classical.

I keep listening to newer BM, trying hard to like it


To my mind, the new Averse Sefira is one of the few that doesn't suck, but there are so few things that are even good I have to ask: why bother? To be open-minded? Black metal is dead, and the people involved in black metal today are low-IQ whores. Don't get dragged down into the quagmire. Don't spend money on this crap, as you're paying for morons. Don't try to identify with it. Listen to your Burzum, Immortal, Emperor, Gorgoroth, Enslaved, Varathron, Ildjarn CDs and be thankful for those.

Metal / Samhain - Live 1984 DVD
« on: October 18, 2005, 05:54:11 PM »
Live 1984 at the Stardust Ballroom, Hollywood, CA
(48 minutes/Music Video Distributors)

This hand-filmed, single-camera narrative documents a time when underground music was still struggling to find its path, and while the quality may not be that of a slick professional recording, the delivery of the band is captured in as much detail as is needed. The sound, when it is not cutting out, is good and separation between instruments and vocals can be heard clearly. Glenn Danzig is an energetic vocalist without either the jaded reserve or overindulgent showmanship of later years, and the crowd looks shellshocked and unsure of what they're seeing, which has the advantage of them doing fewer stupid things to mar enjoyment of the performance. The band are economical with their onstage motions, and tight in their playing, which gives these songs the same power they have coming off of a CD. An enclosed sticker provokes some nostalgia for the time, an age of xeroxed posters and grimly absurd art, of people gathering in long-forgotten clubs to bash out violent performances. For those who like what Samhain were about, this DVD is everything that could be desired from this foundational band.

Rita's about to hit, and I need something I can hear over the roar of the generator. Any suggestions? First person to mention Scorpions gets enlisted forcibly in British navy.

RIGOR MORTIS: More Tour Dates Announced - Sep. 21, 2005
Bassist Casey Orr (GWAR, X-COPS, THE HELLIONS, THE BURDEN BROTHERS) of the reunited Texas thrashers RIGOR MORTIS has sent the following update to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"RIGOR MORTIS is extending our tour. We have added a show on November 4th at The North 6 in New York City and will announce several more dates soon. In other news, we will be participating in the Texas Frightmare Weekend February 4th and 5th. We will be playing both nights. Also, you can catch Casey Orr, Bruce Corbitt and Harden Harrison from RIGOR MORTIS on Dallas' KNON 89.3 Hard Time Radio with Thrashin' Alan at 9:00 this Thursday night, September 22nd at 9:00 p.m. central. You can hear it online at www.knon.org. Joining us will be Rick Perry of GAMMACIDE and Steve Murphy from ROTTING CORPSE. Last but certainly not least, we'd like to congratulate Mike Scaccia and his girlfriend Jenny Rowan on the recent birth of their son Ryder James Rowan Scaccia. We hope he inherits his mother's looks and his father's fingers!"

The original RIGOR MORTIS lineup of Orr, Bruce Corbitt, Mike Scaccia (MINISTRY, REVOLTING COCKS), and Harden Harrison (PERVIS, SPEEDEALER, MITRA) recently announced their first shows together in 15 years. The "Re-Animate" tour starts with a handful of Texas dates in October, with tentative plans to continue after the first of the year followed by a new album.

In a recent interview with Trend Crusher 'zine, RIGOR MORTIS vocalist Bruce Corbitt spoke further about the group's reunion tour and plans for a possible new CD.

"We all are getting along great and all of us are excited about doing this tour together," he said. "We are also doing one of these shows with two other Dallas/Ft. Worth legendary thrash bands from our same area and era. Our old-school metal brothers ROTTING CORPSE and GAMMACIDE are also doing reunions this year. For the first time ever…Dallas/Ft. Worth's first three original thrash bands will all perform at the same show. Mark it down right fucking now… October 29th 2005… will be a historic night for Dallas/Ft. Worth and Texas metal.

"Anyway, if this tour goes well there is a chance it could lead to more. Like a possible new RIGOR CD and a possible bigger tour sometime in early 2006. Hopefully some label will be interested in us with this lineup. But, we are really going to take all of this one step at a time. We will have to find out if we still have the chemistry jamming together live on stage that we used to have. We will also find out if we get a good turnout and response from people at the shows and if there seems to be interest in RIGOR MORTIS from the metal world again. Of course we will have to see if we can get along and not beat the shit out of each other… [laughs]"

Writing "yo mama" on a metal message board is like voting for John Kerry.

It’s people who write music because they are obsessed that I like; because they have something to say and no other way to say it.

Rigor Mortis will play in New York on November 3 at Northsix


They will also be playing other major cities along the way and back - like St. Louis and Chicago to name a couple.

I no longer have the CD, but I remember it was something in one of the lyrics that seemed to alienate people. Also, one can be a good Christian and still be against born-agains or Evangelists (as Chuck Schuldiner was).

But that's not to the point. If one was to do a Christian metal band, I would suggest that it be one in the style of Eckhart or Schopenhauer, maybe some Emerson and Blake influences. Obviously Hitler - himself similar to a Schopenhauer-Emerson crossover - would fit right in, for all you NSBM types.

I am rediscovering the power of non-sequitur. I was in line at the Post Office today and there was some dude ahead who kept talking steadily on his cell phone. For some reason it annoyed me, so I whipped out my phone, pretended to dial, and started talking about the most ludicrous shit I could think of. When I got to repeating "But I want boar anal," people around me finally got nervous, but they were relatively stable through the "discussion" of dismembering neighbors, cooking up a vat of PCP and grannie snuff porn where the elderly were killed after a brutal fucking by turning on a microwave, thus shutting off their pacemakers.

Cell phones are cool, I guess, but there's also a dark side...

Having never owned any of their material or read any interviews I've never seen evidence either way, but where on that site does it say they are NOT christians?

Sorry, I was unspecific. Their bassist - the pseudo-Nordid guy with an Italian name - has posted on several forums saying they were not Christians. The issue is still open as far as I'm concerned, but I wanted to mention that they're spreading around the idea of denying Christ.

I cannot remember which lyric it was, but something was suspicious on the album... maybe more will come of this.
