Metal / Re: Sorcier des Glaces - Snowland reissue
« on: August 23, 2011, 07:12:52 PM »

Has anyone else ordered this? I like this album; it doesn't totally hold together but it keeps a mood and is more imaginative than most of black metal.

Ah, I agree.

IMO, like most dramatic Black Metal bands (i.e. the first Dimmu Borgir seven-inch, Emperor's Hordanes Land, Ancient's Trolltar, Kvist), Snowland conveys sooooooo much in itself.

The last part of the documentary is a little far-fetched, but just keep the first half of the documentary in mind, that's the important part.

Interzone / Our global monetary system

I think this is a pretty solid documentary which explains how money is used as debt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EewGMBOB4Gg

And I learned a little more today after watching it - I've realized how important it is to teach my little nephew into becoming a well-rounded, exceptional human being. If our system were to ever collapse during his lifetime, I want to be assured that he will be ready for it.

Do the same for your children and/or young family members - educate them. This documentary is a good start for the public.

Does Prozak know how to play an instrument? Or any of you staffers here?

Question: Since metal music has been pretty fucked up for many years now, then why not create a rejuvenated style yourselves? I'm directing this question to the Anus staff.

The pre-production of the newest songs are flawless, imo. Well, they're not really new because they've been on his site for probably two and a half years already and still, the album keeps getting delayed for some reason. I love the prog-rock vibe in Gilgamesh.

New material is outrageous. Period.

hehehe, it has "poop" in the title...


My countrymen can be forgiven for including "poop" in their album title.

When I first discovered that album seven years ago - could not even describe how excited I was! Good stuff!

Metal / Letters from the 90s
« on: March 14, 2011, 09:39:19 PM »
Who was fortunate enough to have lived through the glorious early 1990s and able to have created "penpals" with the bands at that time? Can any of you upload interesting letters?

Me being 24 y/o - - of course, I was much too young at the time!

However, thanks to the older fellows that Ive befriended, I was at many times, given the chance to look through their old Wild Rags magazines (historic!) and also read some really cool letters from individuals  such as Samoth from Emperor and Holocausto from Beherit, and if I remember correctly, a couple of dudes from Mortuary (Mexico). Exciting stuff I must add.

I should also mention that most of my older acquaintances were lucky enough to have visited the Wild Rags headquaters during its prime era of the early 90s it is primarily this reason these old Los Angeles metal heads were given exposure to the early Norwegian Black Metal bands.

I should also add that the Wild Rags Store still stands! The sign is there in the front entrance with a bunch of boxes and old metal posters still inside however, the building has been abandoned for probably close to 10 years already!

You guys seem to like Avzhia's return album quite a lot. Good! Those guys, as you can tell, worship the early Norwegian scene, their demo for instance! Avzhia's kind of a copy cat but fuck, they do it quite well, and soungds good.
Key point is: I'm looking for, I guess, the old style Faust-type drumming, cheesy Roamantic vibes, etc, in a bands and right now, I'm just a little bored and trying to discover any bands that might have gone over my head. That's all! So, thanks for your responses.

Later graveland? Really? Get the fuck out of here.

However, their last 6 releases are the best when pumping some iron!

Good call on Avzhia. However, you also forgot to include later Graveland and early Enslaved.
Here are some other key additions to the romantic, key board lush, medieval style of BM:

Kataxu "Hunger of Elements"
Setherial "Nord"
Nagelfar (Ger)
early Lucifugum
The last few from Legion of Doom (Greece!)

DISCLAIMER: none of these come even remotely close to touching early Emperor! But they are still excellent releases.

Also I have heard good things about Aeternus which seems to be in a similar style to "melodramatic BM" as you put it.
I must be absent minded this week. Nord is a great one and they do indeed take much influence on early Emperor as their Faust-like drumming is qutie evident. I should mention the keys as well. Legion of Blood? I only have Kingdom of Endless darkness, wanst bad got to check out the resst

Gehenna's first two

Forgot about them, as well. yes, their first album is quite lovely and melodramatic BUT each song sounds more or less the same.

You can find him at the Rainbow in Hollywood during the afternoon hours. Down to earth dude, however, it kind of makes me sick to know how much crap he's put in his body.

Metal / Re: EXTREME NOISE TERROR vocalist Phil Vane found dead
« on: March 06, 2011, 12:09:40 AM »
The more you start to get to know these musicians in REAL LIFE, the more you realize that their just a bunch of losers, drunks, etc, and so, I certainly hope Phil wasn't one of those cases - I liked his early material A LOT.

Metal / Re: History of Greek Black Metal
« on: March 05, 2011, 08:09:52 PM »
Now, whereto from here?

Go nowhere. Grecian Black Metal is just a GIGANTIC monument of memory in all our feral hearts and souls. Just enjoy the classic heavy metal vibes that these Greek sorcerers conjured in the 90s and that's it!

Also, you should check out ZEMIAL, another historically important Greek Black Metal band. Their new matieral is just outrageous and produces a good trip! Check out myspace.com/zemial

It's fucking INTENSE and DARK. And like Engram, extremely concise with a mystikal awareness.

Not bad! After buying Joined in Darkness in 2005, I couldn't even compare it the last album they came out with. Man, this is good.

Speaking of INTENSE and DARK, check out the first song on Cult of Daath's tape "Doomed By the Witch". Should be on their myspace.
