Inkubus Sukkubus

Inkubus Sukkubus- Wytches (1994, Mediafire)

Riveting Gothic Rock that sent shock waves through the musical world, featuring a band that aggressively represented Paganism as it exists in its current form today. This music is serious as hell, conjoining the Gothic Rock of Britain with mind numbing ritualistic passages.

Vintage Vinyl Records

This is the Helvete of New Jersey, or at least it used to be. Regimental Records will forever be tied into this store considering the majority of the worthy releases that still resonate amongst the shelves are a direct result of Flakpanzer 38 ordering such in the era in which he worked at the store. With the times changing and the trendmill moving along, many of the underground Black/Death Metal original releases are being down-priced as a result of the "out with the old/ in with the new." Originals from Earache, Moonfog, Peaceville, Osmose, Forever Plagued Records, Nuclear War Now, Candelight, Century Media/Black, Roadrunner, Darker Than Black, Strong Survive, Totenkopf Propaganda, Napalm, Supernal, Cymophane,  and what have you are all at discount prices.

COME INTO THE STORE and shop. Take the trip, browse the CD section, the bargain bin, The Vinyl racks, the DVD shelves, the t-shirt selection and you will most definitely find things you would purchase.

Those interested in this style might find the Apotheosis post in audiofile enjoyable. This suggestion comes with a warning of extreme cheese factor, but if you like this style then much of the experimentation would be welcomed. The MyDyingBride-esque electric violin sound has always been a favorite of mine. It was great to hear that make an appearance.

Apotheosis- Farthest From The Sun (2002, Rapidshare)

Following up on bands that got lost in the third wave of obscurity, this Nocturnal Art Productions (Samoth/Zamoth of Emperor/Zyklon) band arose in 1995 from Malta; consisting of a one-man lineup this project was able to accomplish seemingly everything intended with within one album and then silence for ten years after. I applaud this guy for such bravery. There's no need to keep this going. Now, the cheese factor is unbelievable here, but if you can buy into the melodrama and the heavy keyboards, the fantasy themes and the mythic tongue of the music composed, I'm confident that the DLA community would enjoy this thoroughly for its aggressive ambush of fast, complicated, neoclassical Black Metal madness.

Seven years later, does anyone still listen to this?

Maybe not many people, but your question that bumped the thread after seven years prompted me to download it. I had written Atrocity off years ago, and had no idea they ever did an album like this. I'm glad they went back to playing extreme metal even for a small time period.

Wow, that version of the title track is awful.  Dropping the treble to 0 and re-recording the drums and solos to be flashier is a terrible idea.  Also, I have no idea who is doing the vocals on the re-recorded parts, but they're no where near as good as the originals.    Hendrik Mobus' singing voice had a haunting nostalgic quality that suited these tracks much better much better.

I don't think anything is re-recorded actually. These were apparently all taken from the pre-mixed/pre-mastered tapes and given a "proper" mixing, mastering (for the better or worse). There could be some redone sections. I think a heard a few changes and edits here and there but for the most part I think it's the same instrumental and vocal tracks that were recorded for the original release, just flashed up with sound engineering.


12" Black Lp limited edition 500 copies in standard jacket with printed inner sleeve.

"Once upon a time, "Asgardsrei" was recorded in a hurry and without any sound engineer who would assist the band at mixing and mastering their recordings. Hence the initial mixdown, done by the band, suffered from serious flaws affecting the intended impact of this album. Regardless of that, after the release in 1998 "Asgardsrei" was soon to be hailed as a pillar of German Black Metal in general as well as of Narrow Squirting Bowel Movement in particular.

The band was never satisfied with the sound of this album, though. Many years and re-releases later, the original ADAT-tapes resurfaced all of a sudden. It was decided to seize upon this opportunity and to have the original recordings remixed and remastered. One of the best sound engineers in Black Metal started to work on the rough material, and his final achievement has ultimately exceeded any and all expectations.

After more than 12 years, the Tyrants of German Black Metal celebrate their triumphal return in all glory and hatred! Remixed, revised, remastered: The Return of Asgardsrei!"

I'm not entirely sure when the regiments became obscured, but if I'd guess I'd say early on and the oversaturation of Black Metal and Death Metal bands being problematic is only accelerating with future generations growing up in a less rigid, unpoliced culture. This is common, which is the most disturbing, because Black Metal and Death Metal have always been exclusive things in the way I've come to appreciate them.

I think it begins like this. I will use a comedic plan of action, in a fictional scenario:
Step 1: Buy a Burzum album.
Step 2: I can do this too.
Step 3: Fender purchase
Step 4: Record Burzum/Darkthrone riffs
Step 5: I have a band and it's called Ennightenskop, and my album demo is called "Igriffenskrig Mordus"
Step 5: I cease to enjoy Black Metal and Death Metal, I just make music with a sense of artistic license entitlement.
Step 6: My "band" goes nowhere
Step 7: Apply political angle: Ennightenskop are Totalitarian Theocrats who endorse theoretic Commune-Utopia.
Step 8: 10 people think you matter, repeat steps 4 and 5.
Step 9 (optional): If all else fails, do something immoral or legally compromising. Now Ennightenskop rapes turtles, as a standard thing. KVLT.

Being a fan is so underrated and under appreciated. There are innumerable boons that people never EVER seem to pick up on. For example as a fan, you don't work for metal; metal works for you. You're allowed to be as critical as you can, and this only pushes everything to increase in quality. You're judged significantly less negatively by your actions, accomplishment and/or failures- you're not living out a character that *some* people have applied to your being. You have the ability to use thought and voice as representations of the metal population, not the bamblings of a sore artist, and that is a very important component of the Hessian culture. Sweet collections, a variety of live programs to enjoy, parties, whatever...

Yes I have a band, but I view it as a hobby more than an organic symbol that contributes anything of importance. I accomplish personal goals through engagement with it and that's it. I much prefer spending 90% of the year being a fan.

What's wrong with being a fan?

I think Hipster Metal is an unfortunate myopia. If the launching pad was built well with selective abstract musical academics (Neurosis, Amebix, and Burzum really), then the aircraft was built with things sold at Walmart (WITTR, Liturgy, Krallice, Woe), not cool second generation thrift store clothing (Cruciamentum, Disma, Winterwolf) and certainly not made from bare materials (Spite Extreme Wing, Funeral Mist, Daath Shadow, Bahimiron, [insert X number of latter-day Black Metal bands that DARED to do that "oh-so" incredibly difficult thing and to make some original]).

Enough with the citations. Hipsters only know how to do one thing and that is shift per-existing disciplines a couple dozen calibers lower and then use groupthink to dress the up their darlings as revolutionaries. That is Hipster Metal.

Thanks for the fodder.

"Neoclassicism is a trend in which composers sought to return to aesthetic precepts associated with the broadly defined concept of "classicism", namely order, balance, clarity, economy, and emotional restraint. As such, neoclassicism was a reaction against the unrestrained emotionalism and perceived formlessness of late romanticism, as well as a "call to order" after the experimental ferment of the first two decades of the twentieth century. Although in many ways neoclassical music returned to the forms and emotional restraint of eighteenth century music, works by these composers are nonetheless distinctly twentieth century."


That should have been Ildjarn's biography.
