Death Metal Underground Seeks A Motto


As part of our ongoing attempts to be more like normies who like catchy lines and irrelevant banter, Death Metal Underground embarks on a disturbingly social activity for our audience, who are mostly alienated noticers living in bunkers far removed from the cities.

The site motto will be displayed prominently on pages of the site and should reflect the outlook of its audience as well as its writers. Toward that end, several have been advanced so far:

  • Sodomize the weak.
  • You Suffer (But Why?)
  • Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. (Aleister Crowley, Book Of The Law)

If you have suggestions, feel free to drop them in the comments. Image submitted by a faithful reader.

      It’s settled, surely

  3. The fist will run

    The spirit sings in crashing tones we gain the battle drum

    The pen won’t stay the demon’s wings, the hour approaches

    Anus Rebirth ?

    1. Could shorten it to “anus birth.”

    “I’ve killed this old man because he limped
    I’ve done it because he shouldn’t have to do it”
    -Celtic Frost

    “The past is alive”

    “Masturbate to kill myself”

    In a hut which is built of your bones”
    – Absurd

    “Satan watches all of us
    Smiles as some do his bidding”
    – Slayer

    “Death and destruction are necessary to the health of the world, and therefore as natural, and lovable, as birth and life. Only priests and born cowards moan and weep over dying. Brave men face it with approving nonchalance.”
    ― Ragnar Redbeard

    “Equality can only exist between equals. Civilization implies division of labor, division of labor implies subordination and subordination implies injustice and inequality.”
    -same dude

    1. “The past is alive”

      Has potential…

  15. tom g. warrior says:

    Only death is real!

    1. Only death is real!


    2. ay lmao says:


  16. Johan P says:

    “Only Death (Metal) Is Real”

  17. necrofaggot says:

    sodomize the weak already is the motto

    1. Or at least the tacit ethos.

  18. Ankh says:

    Oh look, it’s another Crowley pretender.

  19. Svmmoned says:

    1. Cremate the human race
    2. Praise of death, life’s a dream
    3. What once was… again shall be! (that second part, I believe, was a sort of Hades’s response to Burzum)

    1. I like the third one.

  20. Karolis Gimbutis says:

    I have quite a simple one: SHOW NO MERCY.

    1. Catchy and familiar.


    … because gay raping a retard is preferable to dying a virgin amirite?

  22. LostInTheANUS says:

    I like Crowley’s quote as the motto the most.

    1. Vigilance says:

      Ah yes, Crowley, nothing like starting life fairly handsome and well off only to end it broke, disgraced, sodomized and decrepit looking. All for poorly performing magic and hijacking successful schools to assuage his vanity and transgressive fetishes which included rebelling against an abstraction of his parents generation.

      1. C.M. says:

        Not to mention becoming one of the greatest mountain climbers of all time and doing shitloads of drugs and publishing highly influential literature… eh fuck it.

        1. Vigilance says:

          You know what they say. You can publish impractical books and climb mountains all your life but take it up the ass one time and you’ll always be known as a fag.

          1. C.M. says:

            Ah right, I keep forgetting that crucial aphorism!

      2. Slowly We Frot says:

        THIS is a brilliant excavation of Crowley’s perpetrations!

        And this describes DMU customers: “starting life fairly handsome and well off only to end it broke, disgraced, sodomized and decrepit looking. All for poorly performing magic and hijacking successful schools to assuage his vanity and transgressive fetishes which included rebelling against an abstraction of his parents generation.”

  23. Philosophorum says:

    By Death, for Death

  24. Slowly We Frot says:

    “DMU: Power-worship by the powerless”

    1. Matt Risnes says:

      This is the most accurate and concise of the bunch.

      1. Slowly We Frot says:

        Thanks, man, I’m glad somebody appreciates it. So many niggas on here with such hate towards ‘the weak’ or whatever… they haven’t sodomised anything.

  25. Deport All Hipsters says:

    Deport all hipsters.

  26. Matt Risnes says:

    Pipe tobacco enthusiasts and the felines who reluctantly tolerate their pedantry.

  27. Shelley says:

    Only death is real. We hope you die. God is Dead. No destiny just a certainty of death. Without music life would be an error. Mighty trust crusher.

    And my personal favourite:

    If you are a false don’t entry
    The nuclear drums will crush your brain
    Because you’ll be burned and died

    1. Only death is real.

      Always good.

      1. El says:

        These three in particular are super cool

        “Only death is real. ”
        “Without music life would be an error.”
        “Mighty trust crusher. ”

        Also “The next thousand years are ours” or “By Death, for Death” as other guys said

    2. Doug Killjoy says:

      For those about to die, we salute you.

  29. blue werewolf says:

    “Barbarianism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is the whim of circumstance. barbarianism must ultimately triumph”
    ― Robert E. Howard

  30. For a motto to represent metal accurately, it would have to describe the nature of the will itself, not its particulars.
    Metal is a mentality, not an ideology.
    A way to walk, not a destination.
    That is why metal can celebrate either the enslavement of the weak, or the rebellion against tyrants.

    I believe that music is the only art form capable of describing this will itself. Poetry can touch it, but it will always be bound to a specific instance of the will. One form of it.

    I hope that you can find a good motto, but I doubt it.

  31. Parasite says:

    Fuck the motto ,I want to pet Brett’s pussy.

  32. Vigilance says:

    Clearly Power From Hell:

    For the street he walks lonely
    To look extreme and the appropriate look
    With army boots vest and leather pants
    And visual of painted Bathory the hand

    And the slogan is
    Fuck a lot woman
    To drink until
    And only to hear, the true metal…….

    Meanwhile the place is full,
    He stands out for the heavy look
    It rolls a sound of Venom in the frequency
    In pentagram that he shows the difference

    Choice lyrics

  33. Memoncy - Joined in Dankness says:

  35. Bloz says:

    Sanity is for the weak
    when the wicked are the chosen
    and blessed are the sick

  36. Rainer Weikusat says:

    Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate

    I’m not a human, this is just a dream and soon I will awake.

    1. I kind of like that.

  37. GGALLIN1776 says:

    Rosenberg <3's bukkake

  38. Look into my anus. Anybody seen winky? That’s not really a motto so much as a search bar reference for the nodule hunter.

    1. Skull Powder says:

      If you gaze long into the anus, the anus winks back at you.

  39. snaggletooth says:

    Vision from the DarkSide.

    1. hessian hex says:

      StarWarts: Revenge of the Brown-eyed Clones.

  40. Baaaarp says:

    I hate these woods
    Where there is no danger
    No wolf
    No bear
    No troll
    No evil spirits
    Only the night and me – only the night and me
    A night I shall journey
    To Hell

    1. Slowly We Frot says:

      Just narrow it down to ‘No mosh/no core/no bear/no wolf’

  41. Cynical says:

    “Problems remain.”

    1. A classic metal quote and a strong contender. Also another benefit: short!

      1. Slowly We Frot says:

        What is that quote from?

        1. OnlyInDeath says:


          “Religious intervention / Problems remain! / Under a pale gray sky we shall arise”

  42. “Tell the truth and reign in Hell.” or “To tell the truth and reign in Hell.”

    1. 1349 says:

      Good sounding

  43. Phil says:

    Has won too much
    The hopeless soul keeps mating

  44. 2^1024 says:

    Why not have a pool of mottoes befitting the ideology of this site and display a random one every 24 hours or so?

    1. EL says:

      Or even everytime you load a page
      I like this idea

  45. Hræsvelgr says:

    Væ victis! (Woe to the defeated!)

    Nec spe, nec metu (Without hope, without fear)

  46. wldklwkdl says:


  47. Anndra says:

    any early darkthrone lyrics would suffice:

    “in the shadow of the horns”
    “be the hammer”
    “We are a Blaze in the Northern Sky / The next thousand Years Are OURS”

    or perhaps more controversially:

    “The Norse race must slaughter the other / When niggers pound too heavily on our door”

  48. Anndra says:

    “beholding the throne of might”?

  49. Internatio reloaded says:

    – “Guns, Guitars and Gas”
    – “Teufel mit uns”
    – “One Texas, one metal community, one slave-driver”

    – “An axe to grind” might do too.

    A fist in the face of god.

    Eat the posers’ guts.

    1. C.M. says:

      “A fist in the face of god” is really good but better as a tagline than a motto, if you ask me. Which you didn’t. So take that… or don’t.

  60. “Life just fucks with my head.”

  61. Abominable Goatpenis says:

    “Only limited edition pink vinyl is real”

  62. thewaters says:

    How about this: “Let’s find out!”

  63. Goat-Lord says:

    -Justify your existence

  67. KRK says:

    We die alone.

  68. 1349 says:

    Maybe a rephrase of this?
    “It’s not the world that is cruel; it’s you who’s weak and helpless.”

    “Will trumps all.” =)
    “Hail Satan, our king.” /* A satanist and monarchist idea at the same time. */
    “Be a hammer in the face of gods.” /* Anti-religious and a bit socialist (national-socialist?) because of the hammer symbol. */

    Also i might say that if i wanted someone to develop a motto i would probably write a kind of “product requirements document”. =) What is the motto to convey? How long should it be, what language should it be in, what phonetics should it strive for; should its vocabulary be for the educated or for proles…

  69. Mormegil says:

    Bang that head that doesn’t bang.

  70. I sentence you to says:

  72. Jerry Hauppa says:

    Slightly hopeful but hints at what death metal does to our argumentative nature here-

    I miss those comps.

    1. Memetic warfare (mighty keyboard warrior) says:

      There’s no arguments heee, just slogans

  73. Kev says:
