Voice of dissent: this blurb mentions aspects of the outward form of "Joined in Darkness" that weren't responsible for its actual success, while ignoring what actually made it work.  The album may turn out to be good, but this release doesn't fill me with hope.

That blurb was not written by the band. Most people are morons when it comes to describing music.

This may not surpass JOINED, but I think we can expect something very special.

Metal / Re: Hail of Bullets: new album preview

It sounds allot like Death...the Brutal way, or maybe like what the songs that did not make the cut were like. This is far more true or "old school" as the un-informed like to call it.

Overall I am digging this far more then I would have expected, big improvement!!

All recordings for "Enthroned Is The Night" are complete. The album is now in the final mix stage.


http://www.dgrinc.com/demoncy/index2.html

"This album will be a step back in time that really gave Demoncy the "sound" that absorbed the listener into the darkness that has always driven IXithra and his musical endeavers. Down tuned guitars and more of those ritualistic chanting vocals that were on "Joined In Darkness".

Track list:

1.   Midnight Veil      
2.   Winds Of Plague      
3.   Opening The Lunar Bloodgate      
4.   Unclean Spirits      
5.   Into The Twilight Mists      
6.   The Temple Of Shadows      
7.   Enthroned Is The Night      
8.   The Arcane Aristocracy      
9.   Black Vengeance Of The Ancient Hordes      
10.   City Of Millennia      
11.   Nocturne

To me, War Cult Supremacy would be "sublime" black metal. It invokes a sense of eternity and the infinite that becomes very clear after many many listens. I don't think that anything on the current list needs to be replaced though, all are total classics, I just think more people should search for that kind of mind set when listening to the album. It's easy to just think of it as standard fare blasphemous/chaotic black metal, but in actuality it is an extrodinaraly intelligent pice of music, totally stunning in it's composition.

What is this, amateurhourfest 2011? Missing last year was a bad move.

This line up is peppered with a few goodies, but I think it's safe to say Deathfest is going downhill from here on out.

Nespithe is far too logical and "removed" to be categorized under chaotic IMO.

PLease kill Spiritual Healing and replace with Soulside Journey.

EDIT: why not put Demillich under contemplative? I think it fits more then perfectly.

Also interesting choice with Ritual of Infinity, I never really thought of it under that kind of scope.

You may have saved me a 3 hour trip then, thank you.

What about Immolation for that matter? I will almost certainly be seeing them in October, with Vader.

Ohh yeah, I should add that I am of the opinion that everything after Unholy Cult is penis devouring (although I should probably give Shadows more then a cursory listen...).

I'm actually going to that tour tomorrow. If you'd like, I'll send you a link to the Examiner live review I will likely be writing. Never seen Vader so I can't comment on them; Immolation though I've seen 4 times (I believe) and each time they were stellar.

That would be fantastic, thanks.

I heard a rumour that Vader will be playing De Profundis in it's entirety.

Interzone / Re: Some blue eyed dude stashed weed for 27 centuries

I've never seen any problem with making use of substances which cause desired effects, so long as the desired effects are a means to something more important.  Smoking weed is quite the enabler of a meditative state (indeed, that's what marijuana is used for by some Saddhus).  I prefer Salvia, since it's legal, faster, and probably less dangerous than the ever-so-slightly dangerous cannabis (which, in turn, is less dangerous than the really-pretty-dangerous alcohol).

Really? The one or two times I've tried Salvia I did not enjoy it at all. The high is extremely intense (though short lived); I could see someone who may be too gullible or naive doing something really terrible while on that stuff.

I don't think that is an issue, unless you are driving. It is totally incapacitating for it's brief duration, some people can't even stand up on the stuff. However I would say it could cause you some serious psychological damage if you already have existing anxiety issues or depression, then again - so will any drug.

My experience with salvia was particularly disturbing and basically scared me away from drugs for good.

Im interested in knowing what a live performance from Rotting Christ is like these days. I may have an opportunity to see them on their North American tour, but I am not sure the long journey would be worth it if they mostly play newer material.

I think it may be possible, but has yet to be accomplished.

Interesting question.

Black Bitchery is pure fucking garbage. Fuck this band a thousand fold.

fuck fuck fuck fuck, ect


Profoundly simple trem'd inverted power chords placed at the most predictable intervals, witch then follow text book patterns. Laughingly obvious lack of content, sterile songs, blablalalablalba.

I don't need to go on, 100% of their popularity was due to how 'soooper XxgrimXx" the band members looked in their hoods and cloaks.

I think that Lost Wisdom (song) captures beautifully in 4 minutes what early Absurd was always striving for. Blutgericht is outstanding though.

Massive amounts of television, video games, internet, other forms of media probably fuck with your grey matter, not surprising that those I know who are avid media whores have zero capacity for self introspection and accurate assessments of self. "Socializer/Socialized types" as I have seen them called on this forum, quite likely are crippled in this area of the brain? It's worth looking into.
