vacation

Our staff is on vacation for the next two weeks, possibly longer. We’re re-assessing what we’re doing at the same time we’re sipping fancy cocktails on a beach somewhere, which suspiciously resembles our basements with a space heater and a poster of Florida. Our goal is to reach people with a message of DEATH METAL and it make take some re-assessment to make sure we’re going about that the right way.

    Prozak:
    thank you for all the amazing articles, specially the one about black metal (which by the way I can’t seem to find it, when was it posted?), you are trully awesome.

    I guess I won’t be reading much about Metal for a few weeks. Seriously, all the other major discussion sites are a fucking deadzone of either inactivity or brainless chatter.

    It is no doubt a hard task to keep a blog going (which requires daily posts) about something that is, for the most part, a past phenomenon (death metal).

    You’re doing a formidable job, and it is much appreciated. No other site is worth looking at, whether or not your agree with every single review!

      My thoughts as well. The only article that ever offended me was the review for Behemoth’s The Satanist, which I know the main staff finds unimaginative, cliched, and boring. It felt pandering, and it should have at least mentioned what it’s derivative of (Morbid Angel) to lead newcomers on to better music. Otherwise, I hope to see articles on the upcoming Triptykon and Mayhem albums (which are going to suck).

        There’s actually some really good shit coming out soon (but of course it won’t be Tripykon or Mayhem). I know this because there’s been so little of it lately. Eventually your number has to come up right??

    This is the only site where one can trust the recommendations to be worthy. Readership may better be served in the long run by more focus on the wheat than on the chaff, but even if there is no change in the content, the site is invaluable.

      Agreed. The truth of the matter is these are dark times, things suck all round the board at the moment (the economy, religion, the everyman). One would think that with the current state of the world there should at least be some good music coming out?? but actually even the intelligent and artistic types are depressed as all hell. It really is a sorry state of affairs and one can’t help but continually ponder the question “Just what the fuck is going on out there??”. The way I see it, of course, is that you either wait around to see what happens next, search humbly for your own way out or get good at predicting and influencing what little bit of destiny you can (like the sport of curling really!). For I love you, O eternity!

    I might not be active on the comments or forum anymore but I figured I should chime in to say that I eagerly await the return of the Brett Stevens and his merry crew of marauding metal banditos.

    I hope you guys continue to post more articles. I have really enjoyed some the articles and music posted on this site. I will be interested in seeing how you guys go about changing your way of spreading the message of Death Metal.
