Codex Obscurum: a retrospective

codex_obscurum_-_library

From its beginnings as an unsteady homage to the zines of years past to its current role as commentator and gatekeeper of quality underground metal, Codex Obscurum zine has grown and refined its approach over the past five years. Today the editors released a photograph of issues one through eight in all their glory, and we thought we would share it with you.

    The guy from heavy metal/punk band NME was killed. (http://www.deathmetal.org/bands/nme/)

    “The man who died Wednesday when his car plunged from the Southwest Spokane Street Swing Bridge
    was the founder of a local “black metal” band and was convicted in 1986 of killing his mother.”

      He thought he was a robot and sliced open his mother to see if she was one too.

        This got to me because I was just recently chatting with a Christian pastor that
        is well versed in the heavy metal subculture and he called to my attention the
        high number of suicides and killings musicians that occur in heavy metal. It is
        kind of weird or spooky at least. Like an evil entity that feeds on human souls
        and every now and then comes out to feed just like the Stephen King monster IT,
        only it feeds on metal people.

          WOAH!!!!11

          In other other (ancient) news, metal breeds faggotry and mental dissorders.

          There’s a New Testament quote out there that deals with staying away from darkness, but I can’t find it. In my case, I apply this to the attitude to approach darkness with a lot of caution. Let them talk about death and putrefaction, but nihilism and blasphemy… That’s another thing.

          Sorry for not elaborating

    KEVORD calling Obituary a bunch of “dick heads” for using Kickstarter last October was fucking classic.
