Metal / Cult of Luna - Salvation
« on: October 19, 2004, 11:18:07 AM »
CULT OF LUNA: New album "Salvation" out today in USA

Swedish noisecore stars Cult Of Luna blew away audiences in the UK with the new material from their critically acclaimed new album "Salvation". Their follow up to "The Beyond" finds the band in a slightly mellower mood, but they haven¹t lost any of that crushing intensity, that is seeing them leading the burgeoning noisecore scene at the moment.

Check out the track "Leave Me Here":

If you live in Sweden then you can catch the band at one of these venues:

Oct 19th (tuesday) SE LINKOPING Skylten
Oct 20th (Wednesday) SE GOTHENBURG Sticky Fingers

"Salvation" is released in the US on 19th October 2004

(Noisecore is noise pop with a few hardcore stylings. This sample at least sounds like a simpler "My Blood Valentine" meets later Neurosis.)

THE CHASM: New Album "The Spell Of Retribution" released 8th November

The Chasm's debut album for Wicked World "The Spell Of Retribution" will be released in UK & Europe on 8th November 2004. The 66 minute long heavy metal epic takes a lot of it¹s influences from the band's South American background incorporating spirtuality, ancient heritage, philosophy and a genuine reverance for their background. Through the band's 10 year career they have never lost sight of their love of the metal classics that inspired them (Slayer, Judas Priest and Bathory) but The Chasm are unique, no-one else sounds like them.

Check out an MP3 for the track "Fortress" here:

(Fear the hints of retro, and heavy metal, most probably.)

Black metal from Texas that fuses the Norse style of epic poetic songs with the more feral, aggressive, primal riffing of early 1990s death/black metal.

Summary: Focus less on big hits, and more on steady sales of niche products.


Metal / Metal zine writer's book
« on: October 17, 2004, 10:39:25 AM »
Jon Konrath is proud to announce that he has released his fourth book, entitled _Dealer Wins: Misadventures in the New Las Vegas_. It's a 158-page collection of travel essays, articles, and photos of various visits to Las Vegas. It includes five trip reports, which were re-edited for the book, plus four new essays, and tons of photos.

A bunch of stories are covered in the book, from skydiving to rollercoasters to machine guns to sports cars to the crappy rooms at Circus Circus to accidentally flooding a Rain Man suite at Stardust to the infamous tale about why the author is not allowed to eat at Smith and Wollensky anymore.

The book is available from lulu.com at http://lulu.com/jkonrath and you can visit http://rumored.com/dealerwins for more info. It has a UPC/ISBN and will be distributed by Ingram and will be available at online booksellers like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and so on. It is
available immediately at lulu for $9.99 plus shipping/handling.

Lulu is also re-releasing his first book _Summer Rain_. It is now available with the real front cover that it was intended to have, in the same 6x9" size but at only 500 pages instead of 660 due to a better layout. It is available for $16.95 only at lulu and will not be at Amazon or other places. (It has no bar code/ISBN.)

Metal / Cryptic Slaughter

"Convicted" and "Money Talks" in full MP3:


This thrash band were one of the founders of the genre, taking punk riffs and putting them in metal songs that were fast, short, abrupt and violent. "Convicted" in parts sounds like a death metal album. These were recently released by Relapse records, but are now seemingly hard to find, so it is excellent that someone has put them online in this format.

If you haven't heard this band, remember that this is an ancestor of most of today's grindcore and death metal.

Metal / Vacarme - Quebecois thrash
« on: October 17, 2004, 10:08:12 AM »
We're a group of musicians from Qubec. We're Hardcore influenced by thrash and speed metal, in French Canadian language! Thought of the day: It is necessary that the United States destroys their weapons of massive destruction (military, economic, media and soul-destroying) which threaten our lands, our water, our culture and our language.

The returning back to the roots way the band has choosed in the last couple of albums goes on with that album too and it really brings back memories of THY MIGHTY CONTRACT as well as a perfect follow up of their last great reviewed GENESIS album.


Metal / Sacramentum - rumors of return
« on: October 15, 2004, 11:01:59 AM »
SACRAMENTUM stands for pure black/death metal  and let their music be the channel to display their thoughts and values.


(This band is rumored to have resumed activity. We can only hope. They produced at least two great albums and several of a death/black/speedmetal hybrid style that were musically competent, if missing some of the passion of earlier works.)

Metal / Ildjarn - Reissues

Metal / What is black metal, as art?
« on: October 14, 2004, 07:39:25 PM »
 I defined it like this earlier: "Emotional detachment without apathy." Sounds a bit like nihilism, doesn't it?

Add to this an obsession with the occult, which in a historical view is a term applied to any belief system in which both good and evil can be used to further one's aims. That sounds like emotional detachment without apathy.

But is there a way to summarize it, in the abstract and not 100% exact, in a paragraph?


Metal / Useful metal websites
« on: October 14, 2004, 01:59:24 PM »
There's about ten billion of late, but I haven't seen a broad survey of what's out there. Can you list some favorites, and then your own site, if you have one?

(Obviously, I am not going to list sites with which I work... redundancy)
