"Gary Monardo's Record Vault Shirt" from Crush, Kill Destroy samples everyone's favorite "Weeping In Heaven" lyric.
haha, i just listened to that song, youre right. i never noticed it before.
thats a great album though. serious music meets nonserious lyrical content.
and youre right, back on topic. thoughts on?
Agathocles - Mincer
Abigor - Orkblut - The Retaliation
Revenge - Infiltration.Downfall.Death
I think the absurdist humor in "powerviolence" is kind of analogous to the way black metal overdoes their evil imagery and death metal uses gore in hyperbole, though bands like spazz and charles bronson are more subversive.
Infest and no comment are the antithesis of Metallic grindcore, just stripped down fast hardcore. Even if they are preachy, the lyrics are pretty accurate.
i like how you use the term "powerviolence" in quotes. i dont regard it as a serious term. i think one of the dudes from MITB said it as a joke when describing their music, and it caught on. personally i just call it all grindcore.
and ive never really got the hype about Charles Bronson. theyre just your typical fast hardcore band with one of the most annoying singers i have ever heard.
SPAZZ is an example of how not to use a sampler.
Random Profanatica and D.R.I. samples with tons of other random movie/TV sound bytes. Kind of annoying.
Infest, No Comment, Bucket Full of Teeth, and Yacopsae are the powerviolence bands I'd recommend.
Yacopsae is pretty good. and yeah sometimes Spazz go overboard with the samples. some are pretty funny.
where does Spazz use Profanatica samples? id like to see if i have the songs.
and maybe Man is the Bastard
Taake has some good ideas, and some good riffs. Theyre not at all like Satyricon (nothing can be that bland), but they need some tightening up in the songwriting department, judging from Doedevskad (the only album i own by them).
Man is the Bastard is pretty unique grindcore. the fact that they dont employ guitars makes them like a punk Necromantia. not bad at all. there was a lot of good stuff coming out of the early 1990s "powerviolence" scene, such as Spazz, Infest, Dropdead, and Capitalist Casualties. you just have to focus on the music and leave out the preachyness (or in Spazz's case, get past the fact that they were a bunch of goofs).
Malevolent Creation - The Ten Commandments & Retribution
i have Retribution. pretty decent album, though not really distinguishable from the crowd. the guitars are mixed far too low, and are overpowered by the drums. shame, as there are some tasty riffs on display.
No, it doesn't make sense -- thrash and speed metal are totally different.
Idiots always misuse terms, even in 1984. But among the smart people, usage was clear.
Some people were actually calling Metallica and Slayer black metal back then too. Should we start doing that also?
The ignorance of people astounds me.
it was ignorance because subgenres were not as developed as they are today. like that split called "Death Metal" with Helloween, Running Wild, and Hellhammer. only Hellhammer is remotely close to death metal by our standards today.
hindsight is always 20-20.
Pretty bland early Gay Midget Fecal Pr0n (GMFP), though a lot better than it's predecessor Vampyr. You'd be better off sticking to the Az-I-Dahak and Ordog.
How's the new Blut Aus Nord album compared to their other work?
once again, the word filters here are hilarious.
i liked Az-I-Dahak but i think that Empire of Blood is BF's best work (that i have heard). those vocals are simply evil in its true form, and the medieval vampyric atmosphere is very convincing. plus, an excellent assortment of tremolo melodies are abound throughout the tracks.
You're missing the point. The idea is to give examples of a distinction of which most people are ignorant, hence the misleading term "Thrash Metal".
I bet if this is posted around other metal boards you'll receive a lot of indignant reactions.
i am not missing any point. i understand ANUS' definition of thrash.
i was merely pointing out other good bands.
