Exposing the Hypocrisy of Liberal Metal Journalism


Article contributed to Death Metal Underground by Cullen Toner.

In an age where the culture war has reached all corners of American life it is essential to understand the immense significance of the extreme metal frontier. As a liberal movement on the brink of extinction adapts a full blown communist agenda and wages totalitarian warfare against all beneficiaries of natural selection and individual freedom it is mandatory for the iron willed men and women of metal to defend the most liberated of all musical genres. By defeating these dystopian LARPers on the battlefield of metal culture we will accelerate their complete evisceration and ultimately emancipate the underground metal genre from it’s stagnant state. Therefore we must understand the enemy to swiftly and decisively destroy it.

#Metalgate: The A.V.Club Gets Burzum Merch Pulled From Wal-Mart

wal-mart-burzum-filosofem-shirt

Hipster multimedia review website The A.V. Club accused Wal-Mart of “normalizing” Burzum by stocking Burzum‘s merchandise online through a third party a few days ago. Wal-Mart pulled all of their Burzum merchandise today. The A.V.

Hypocrisy re-issues Penetralia and Osculum Obscenum

hypocrisy-penetralia_osculum_obscenumSwedish modern metal band Hypocrisy will re-issue their classic first two albums, Penetralia and Osculum Obscenum, as a CD box set for maniacs who remember when this blasphemous band were death metal.

In particular, Penetralia set the standard for aggressive riffing and an album format that many would follow, in which a series of intensely brutal songs peaked in a more epic song, and then resumed in order to fade out into a more intricate and melodic instrumental.

Hypocrisy also innovated the production of Swedish-style melodic metal, giving it an approach to texture and dynamics that is imitated to this day. In addition, the Hypocrisy band members created a black metal band called The Abyss whose album The Other Side became the template for melodic black metal after the second wave.

While it is great to see these two classics get re-issued, die hard fans are wondering if these CDs will remain in print in some form, and when or whether the material from the Inferior Devoties and Pleasures of Molestation EPs will be reissued, as this is some of the band’s strongest material.

Each CD contains bonus material in the form of live recordings of some of the classic tracks featured earlier on the album. As part of the classic death metal revival that started in 2009, this re-issue continues a postmodern habit of honoring the past when our lesser replacements burn out on us.

The box set will be released on July 12, 2013 on Nuclear Blast.
