Metal / RIVETHEAD magazine returns
« on: June 30, 2011, 02:07:10 PM »
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, this was a regular metal magazine that you could get for free at record stores in Houston.

Every concert and new record release was in it. Not only that, but it covered penetrating topics -- much like the Metal AE -- such as the history of metal, music theory, what defined metal, genrology, the spirit of metal and the clash between metal and the counter-culture as well as the pop-culture above it.



The website has a comprehensive archive of their late 1980s and early 1990s issues, which focus on a mixture of heavy metal, speed metal and the birthing of death metal. The approach is professional even if the methods are homebrew:

* Rivethead Magazine Homepage
* Rivethead Magazine on Twitter
* Rivethead Magazine on Facebook
* Rivethead Magazine on last.fm

Metal / SATAN'S HOST creates documentary, new album
« on: June 30, 2011, 02:06:27 PM »
MORIBUND recording artists SATAN'S HOST are entering Flatline Studios with producer Dave Otero (CEPHALIC CARNAGE, COBALT) on July 18 to commence recording a “celebration album” to commemorate the 25th anniversary release of their debut album, the cult classic Metal from Hell. The new & exclusive compilation will contain a few new songs and revamped versions of classic tunes that span the band's career, with returned original vocalist Leviathan Thisiren (AKA Harry Conklin - JAG PANZER, TITAN FORCE) offering his unique take on the songs.

The as-yet-untitled opus is set for release in November 2011 via MORIBUND RECORDS, and confirmed songs so far include brand-new songs "For the Love of Satan" and "Conviction," the title track to Metal from Hell, "Witches Return," "Nightside of Eden," "H.E.L.L.," "Dark Priest (Lord Ahriman)," and the title track to Satanic Grimoire. More details to surface soon at www.Satanshost.com and www.MoribundCult.com.

In other SATAN'S HOST news, a special "making of" documentary for the band's latest By the Hands of the Devil can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ts-cz0CTzc&feature=channel_video_title

Released last month by MORIBUND, By the Hands of the Devil is the first SATAN'S HOST album since their Metal from Hell debut to feature the powerhouse vocals of Leviathan Thisiren/Harry Conklin. It has been met with unanimous acclaim all around the world. A sampling of the press reaction, as well as an exclusive stream of the entire album, can be found here: http://www.moribundcult.com/Artists/SatansHost/SatansHost.html

On this press page you can find streaming digital audio for these two releases (and more) as well as downloadable band photos, album covers, logos, and biographies. Additionally, all albums are available to download. However, PLEASE NOTE: HELLS HEADBANGERS will be handling the INQUISITION, BLACK WITCHERY, and GRAVE DESECRATOR albums for North America ONLY.

ACID WITCH - "STONED"
Detroit's most evil doom band raises hell this Halloween with one of the heaviest, crushing albums ever made! Mixing '70s psych, NWOBHM, '80s doom metal, crust, and death, this album is sure to possess even the holiest by the power of weed, spell and Satanism! Expect no typical doom metal here eerie, listeners - this album isn't just a bunch of recycled Black Sabbath riffs. Acid Witch have crafted their own sound that sounds like no other band now or from the past. Their influences melt together like wax from black candles on an age-old satanic ritual. The production is warm and heavy, yet raw and filthy. All lyrics, art, layout, writing & recording was done by the band themselves, bringing back a punk D.I.Y. attitude the underground is missing nowadays. The Witch is back, and it's time to get STONED! Recommended for worshippers of WITCHFINDER GENERAL, TROUBLE, DEEP PURPLE, and WINTER.
 
INQUISITION - "OMINOUS DOCTRINES OF THE PERPETUAL MYSTICAL MACROCOSM"
INQUISITION, possessors of one of the most distinctive black metal sounds around, returns after a ominious, three-year slumber in the stygian depths with their highly anticipated fifth album, "Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrososm." Revolving, as always, around the core duo of vocalist/guitarist Dagon and drummer Incubus, INQUISITION create fog-thick, utterly mesmerizing blackness with only two instruments and voice. "Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm," amongst a discography already lined with classics, evokes blackest magick and esoteric mysticism, inducing trance-like states in even the sturdiest constitution - hail the "Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm"! Recommended for worshippers of INQUISITION, because no one else sounds like INQUISITION. For North America ONLY - No Colours to release in Europe

 
BLACK WITCHERY - "INFERNO OF SACRED DESTRUCTION"

In 2001, BLACK WITCHERY decimated an unsuspecting scene with their "Desecration of the Holy Kingdom" debut. Four years later came another strategic strike against the weak 'n' false with "Upheaval of Satanic Might." Now, as anticipation reaches a fever pitch, BLACK WITCHERY return to claim their crown as the unrivalled masters of unrepentantly barbaric blackdeath with "Inferno of Sacred Destruction." More caustic, close-minded, and crushing than ever, this unholy black/death speed trinity create an unholy conflagration guaranteed to devour and destroy even the most battle-hardened underground warrior - witness the "Inferno of Sacred Destruction"! Recommended for maniacs of BLASPHEMY, ARCHGOAT, REVENGE. For North America ONLY - Osmose to release in Europe

GRAVE DESECRATOR - "INSULT"

Shaking up the increasingly complacent bestial metal scene in 2008 with their "Sign of Doom" debut, Brazilian beasts GRAVE DESECRATOR return to bury the still-standing with their second and latest album, "Insult." Foregoing fifth-generation clones of newer hordes, GRAVE DESECRATOR drive deep into the roots of South American darkness with nuclear-powered blackgrind rife with psychotic solos and eldritch dread, all whilst never losing sight of "song" over "chaos." Full-moon rituals and alcoholic rites - GRAVE DESECRATOR spit the gravest "Insult"! Recommended for diehards of VULCANO, early SEPULTURA, SARCOFAGO, and early MYSTIFIER. For North America ONLY - Ketzer to release in Europe

Metal / LIVE EVIL free sampler released for download
« on: October 25, 2010, 07:46:02 PM »


Live Evil festival—curated by Fenriz's Band of the Week picks—is almost upon us Londoners and to commemorate this I have made an unofficial mix featuring all the bands performing. Deciding who went first on the mix etc. was somewhat a daunting task, so instead I split the mix into two halves; Saturday and Sunday, in order of how they will appear onstage.

Metal / DAVID ICKE popular with nu-metalcore bands and Wino
« on: October 15, 2010, 10:48:18 PM »
From the WTF dept:

Quote
If you believe reptoid "expert" David Icke, our planet is secretly ruled by extraterrestrials who walk on two legs, appear human, and live in tunnels and caves…when they're not crossbreeding with humans to produce leaders like the Egyptian pharaohs, every U.S. president, and the Queen of England. Icke believes the reptoids are the same race, the Anunnaki, discussed in Babylonian creation mythology, and they are prominently featured in his books The Biggest Secret, Children of the Matrix, Tales From the Time Loop and Infinite Love is the Only Truth, all of which are sold as nonfiction.

This wouldn't interest me in the slightest were it not for Icke's curious popularity within the heavy metal scene. As a journalist covering metal, I've encountered multiple artists citing his books in their album liner notes, and/or writing songs about reptoid mythology.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with They Live.

Interzone / The dark side as necessary as the lite side
« on: October 12, 2010, 11:24:44 AM »

But researches have never take a close look at the negative elements.

"Was it possible that they might be beneficial in some contexts?" Harms asked. "For some of them, it turns out that the answer was yes."

The study followed more than 900 officer cadets in their second, third and fourth years at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. It used the Hogan Development Survey, a comprehensive measurement of traits that can derail managers, to predict changes in a variety of leadership areas that were regularly assessed in developmental reviews at the Academy.

Several of the 12 "dark side" traits -- such as those associated with narcissism, being overly dramatic, being critical of others and being extremely focused on complying with rules -- actually had a positive effect on a number of facets of the cadets' leadership development over time, the study found.

Stubbornness is a bad-but-good trait that Marko Salonen sees in his manager.

"It gets things done. She won't let go. She won't let go," he said. "In any other relationship, it would be a bad thing, but at work it's a good thing."

"By themselves, these ... traits had fairly small effects, but when aggregated, they played a substantial role in determining which cadets developed leadership skills," Harms said. "Assumptions about how these traits affected performance and development were mistaken ..."

http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/10/12/dark.side.management/index.html?hpt=C2

The impetuous, raging, Faustian, hateful, bigoted, radical animal emerges as possibly more effective than the kumbaya, "rational," neurotic modern.

No mention of whether it was beneficial to sodomize those you defeat in hand-to-hand combat, but I'm sure it was just an oversight.
