< Famed Judas Priest singer and gay fashion icon Rob Halford has been recently vocal about starting a black metal supergroup. A longtime fan of the genre, Halford has named Ihsahn of Emperor and Nergal of Behmoth as potential collaborators, with the latter jumping at the opportunity to use his cartoon-black-metal brand to pocket even more mainstream metal dollars. Unfortunately for Halford and anyone dumb enough to be duped into thinking something like this will be good, Nergal will not have much to offer in terms of a black metal supergroup as he has not played black metal since 1994's Sventevith despite masquerading around in corpse paint whenever it’s time to roll out the red carpet.
Nothing good will come from a Halford supergroup as we already got to hear Ihsahn do falsettos over black metal on IX Equilibrium and every single black metal supergroup has massively sucked. Remember how quickly the first Twilight album tanked the credibility and career prospects of Wrest, Imperial, Malefic, and Azentrious? Does anyone remember Abbath’s short lived “I” project at all or their mediocre sub-par Immortal styled album? Can you imagine how legendary Thorns would have been if Snorre/Blackthorn had died in prison instead of making a terrible full length with Satyr and Aldrahn?
There is no quicker way to spot a false than seeing someone getting excited over this or taking the idea of any “black metal super group” seriously. If you do encounter a said individual: deny entry, and ensure that they are burned and died.

Priest Judas & The Imperial Moth?
rainer + weikusat?
Bored + again?
Out of curiosity: How old are you?
Even the people who had been persecuting/ tormenting me from the 2nd half of the 1st year elementary school on (by that time, autism wasn’t even something people were unfamiliar enough with to use it a blanket “Hate it!” label) grew tired of these lame name-rewording (“Scheisskusat”) shortly after entering their teen years.
You sure do bitch a lot. You’re like, what, almost 40 and you’re bitching about kids picking on you in grade school? And you bitch about STILL getting picked on by people. Have you not figured out how to fight back, or at very least avoid situations?
“Medicore” is an interesting term.
As with any other type of “core,” I don’t need to hear a single song to know I’m not a fan!
First of all what Halford has to offer actually? He is only a vocalist. It’s the creation of strong guitarwork that is so problematic lately. And because they could rely on Halford as a sort of gimmick here, the guitarwork would be even more pedestrian. Or they will merely provide some low effort yet flashy background music for the vocals.
But I think that they actually may go for it out of need to regain some relevance (Ihsahn) and out of greed (Negral).
Spot on good sir. Ghaal was a pretty good vocalist but Gorgoroth during his tenure with the band was just horrible because the music was terrible. Hat was a mediocre vocalist, but Pentagram was a fantastic album because the music was excellent. Many other examples are extant but we needn’t go into them.
A vocalist can bring a metal band up or down a few notches, but it seems that they are nonetheless the least important part of a good metal band.
No, I don’t remember a Twilight album tanking and I don’t even know who those assholes are or want to know.
Idk what it sounded like but iirc twilight was a metal band with the old twink from sonic youth playing guitar, lel
I can just imagine him at a metal show sliding his guitar strings up and down the front of his amp
I reckon the music actually sucked ass though since even the metal-hating hipsters it was marketed toward didn’t buy it
wow that sounds awful. and don’t forget, brock: you’re a wingnut and a mental weakling.
Haalföödr and the spooky black kids, he only wants attention as Varg Birkenau!!
and many others!!
Halford’s third midlife crisis (the first being Painkiller, the second being Fight). I guess it’s a three quarters life crisis, actually.
This article is irrelevant.
Halford probably initiated extreme metal with his razorsharp phrase and redhot bdsm intensity.
Not a big Ihsahn fan, but he did assess Halford intelligently, as the embodiment of metal (along with the T/D guitar duo of course) and a classic singer – not many of which metal has seen.
I don’t see why Halford shoudn’t collaborate with Ihsahn if he so desires. About Nergal, I don’t think he has anything to offer.
Very upset you cropped out Wonderdog from The SuperFriends pic. He was just as imprtant as Wendy and Marvin.
I don’t care what this article is about.
You show the Superfriends but KISS in Marvel comics would kill them I think.
This sounds less like a music project and more like an opportunity for Halford and Nergal to engage in some homo BDSM play.
