Black Metal / Poison Blood
« on: June 16, 2017, 07:39:35 PM »
POISON BLOOD is a collaboration between Jenks Miller (Horseback) and Neill Jameson (Krieg) born out of Millerís desire to write music that was an outlet for a more straightforward kind of aggression. The two musicians came together as fans of each other's work and a mutual appreciation for Beherit's classic Drawing Down the Moon LP and the experimental deathrock of cult UK act Rudimentary Peni. Although they have yet to meet in person, the project was crystallized with the contribution of Jameson's vocals. Across eight songs and 19+ minutes with explorations into deathrock, dungeon synth and the occult, POISON BLOOD's eponymous debut EP is a short but furious chronicle of cold, reptilian sonic terror. The result is a dark and low-fi exercise in mystic, minimalistic black metal exploring elements of deathrock, dungeon synth and the occult.

I'm really hyped for this, guys. Imperial's vocals are a lot different than I've heard from him before. Probably gonna preorder this tbh.

In my infinite fucking wisdom I thought I'd take a shortcut in deleting the recent influx of spam accounts and just delete the accounts responsible for them. In the process I accidentally deleted several legitimate accounts (including Awful McBad and Cappa). I apologize for that.

If your account was deleted/you're unable to login, register a new account and let me know who you are and I'll reattribute the posts to you.

Additionally I've taken steps to make the registration pretty much impossible for bots to pass by setting up questions related to music any fucking nerd of our caliber could solve.

Also, contrary to belief, I am not dead. Just coming out of hibernation.

Industrial / Death in Rome
« on: April 05, 2017, 04:53:18 AM »
I'd seen this project floating around for a while (a few years), but never bothered giving them a shot or even looking into their material because of their name, which gave the impression of them being a shit tier bargain bin martial project. well, in reality they do martial industrial covers of various pop songs, in the style of Rome and Di6, as their name would suggest. it's fucking brilliant and top notch. they just recently released a full length, which is more or less just a compilation of the various loose tracks they've put out. worth listening to if you're into martial folk and get a kick out of this kind of thing.

Events / MDF deathcult 2017
« on: February 10, 2017, 07:59:44 AM »
tl;dr, thread for organising the MDF trip. so far Alden, Joel, Aiden, and me are confirmed. I'll start looking into hotel rooms later on today or over the weekend as I'm planning on leaving Colorado in the next 24hrs to head back to Arizona (and California) for a couple of weeks.

Also it'd be nice to figure out how many days we plan on staying, and whether or not we (all of us or some of us) opt for full passes or partial. Would be nice to have a couple of days outside the fest to rub elbows and get wrecked, you know what I mean?

here's link for tickets to mdf:

there's at least half a dozen hotels in the vicinity of the venues, it'd be best to book ASAP because it's a fair bet that they'll be booked up completely very soon. from what little i've dug up, we're looking at roughly the neighborhood of $700+/- for a week stay (so far I've only looked at Holiday Inn, though) in a single room.

also found this one, seems to be the most inexpensive: [LINK]

Black Metal / WOE - New album
« on: February 01, 2017, 11:10:41 PM »
Dunno what the consensus is on these guys around here. I know a lot of people like to group them into the whole hipster scarf black metal thing, but their first and third albums are actually really good (especially the first album). Anyhow, they've got a new album, Hope Attrition, scheduled to drop on March 17th. Invisible Oranges just premiered a track (featuring Brooks Wilson of the band Crypt Sermon) from the record. Obviously it's more in line with their more recent material, and probably won't do anything to change the mind of detractors regarding their opinion of the band.

That being said, I think it's more in line with bands out of the Chicago and general mid-west scene (e.g. Wolvhammer) rather than bands like Deafheaven, etc.

You can check out the stream of the track (and more general background) here:

Black Metal / Narrow Pathe (members of Leviathan, the body, etc)
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:29:27 AM »
This is a collaborative project between members of The Body and Sandworm, with contributions from Stevie Floyd (Dark Castle) and Jef Whitehead (aka Wrest of Leviathan).

It's something of an under-the-radar release, apparently it came out back in 2015 but I only heard about it a couple days ago. It's got elements of noise and punk rock in addition to the American brand of black metal. It was released on tape by Stevie and Jef's label DEVOUT but it's been sold out for a good long time. You can stream it or purchase it from bandcamp via the link below.

Declarations / New theme / new subforum
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:21:04 AM »
Reskinned the site due to various bugs and compatibility issues with the old theme. I've modified the .css quite a bit but may have missed something, so if you see any sort of discrepancies, please point them out. There's still some work that needs to be done in terms of adjusting theme images, but for all intents and purposes the redesign is complete.

I've also added a new subforum: News / General Events

This is for politics, world news, etc. All music news should be posted either in the respective genre subforum or in general discussion.

EDIT (feb 9th) - dunno if it was just on my end, but i fixed those bullets that were appearing on the top userbar. I don't know what the cause is/was, maybe a server update that misread the .css, but here's to hoping it doesn't happen again. Hit F5 to do a hard refresh on the site if you're still seeing them as of this edit.

News / General Events / FedEx Employee vs Flag Burners
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:02:01 AM »
A FedEx driver in Iowa City, Iowa simply could not sit idly by when he saw a group of protesters setting fire to an American flag on the cityís cold streets yesterday afternoon. The man, identified as Matt Uhrin, leaped from his truck with a fire extinguisher, put out the fire, and took one of the flags

During that altercation, Uhrin got into a physical altercation with a couple of the protesters. He sprayed one with the first extinguisher and pushed one person off of him.

Many people have wondered if FedEx would end up firing Uhrin since he was recorded and photographed wearing his FedEx uniform during the altercation, however, the delivery company made it clear today that they have no plans to let Uhrin go.

Good going on the part of FedEx. I thought it was funny in the video how the "protestors" were shouting out things about how they were "fighting fascism" and "the illuminati"

Because obviously the best way to fight the New World Order is to burn a flag and yell slogans on a street corner.

General discussion / Your top artists for the week
« on: January 29, 2017, 07:46:59 AM »
Post them here.

Wolcensmen is probably my favourite I've heard this week. Outstanding pagan neofolk. Reminiscent of Falkenbach and sometimes Summoning, which makes sense since Jake from Caladan Brood did some session work on the album.

General discussion / BandCamp Downloader
« on: January 29, 2017, 07:30:59 AM »
Got my greasy fingers on this a couple of weeks ago. It's a desktop UI that allows multiple consecutive downloads from bandcamp, all you do is plug the URL for the album in and let it fly. Obviously it rips the files at the default bitrate (128k, I think), but who cares about that.

It's really useful for snagging releases that either aren't available to download for some reason, or are priced at something stupid like $666.66.

Buy the records if you dig them, obviously.

General discussion / The current climate of "journalism" in metal
« on: January 26, 2017, 11:24:17 PM »
i've noticed something of a trend lately on a handful of webzines I sometimes read. that is a tendency to inject political or social opinion and/or commentary into their articles (both related and unrelated to music news). there's been a couple specific instances i can point to, especially since trump's inauguration, but i'll only mention one specifically - Invisible Oranges - Ten Metal Cliches We Can Do Without. As the title suggests, it addresses or points out a handful of (relatively) common tropes associated in extreme metal. But, surprisingly, not all of them are necessarily related to the music itself. Read the article and you'll see what I mean.

Then of course there's a certain left-wing tabloid that's notorious for having completely jumped the shark a few months back.

Setting aside further developing my thoughts (I'll do that later if/when the discussion here progresses), what do you think about the recent tendency to inject politics or social discourse into not necessarily only the music, but the journalistic aspect of extreme metal?

I'll briefly give my thoughts in advance to fleshing them out, which is to say I think it's a load of fucking tripe and blogs/zines like NoCleanSinging set a great example due to the fact that they altogether ignore commentary immediately unrelated to the music/band that's the topic at hand. I regard music, extreme metal in particular, as being partially escapist in nature, and trying to inject some kind of idiot element into the discussion is complete bullshit.

Black Metal / Earth and Pillars
« on: January 26, 2017, 08:56:34 AM »
Atmoblack from Italy. They've got some kind of connection with Battle Dagorath, but I'm not sure in what way. Two albums out, bretty good bruh. I've only heard the latest (2016) record but it's good.

Industrial / Neofolk recommendation list
« on: January 16, 2017, 01:50:29 AM »
I started this list for Knightfall some time ago, been updating it semi-regularly since.

I may split this up into two separate lists, as I've been introducing releases that lean towards cascadian folk and martial folk lately, and those styles are quite very different.

Black Metal / Dumal
« on: January 12, 2017, 02:52:11 AM »
Black metal from Pennsylvania. They've got a few releases out, but I've only heard their latest release, which is from this year. It's good. Really good. There's some great riffs throughout this whole album, and the mixing is good too. If this is any indicator as to what 2017 is going to bring, I think we'll be fine.

Industrial / Medicine Moon
« on: January 12, 2017, 12:45:39 AM »
This is a project from California with ties to the Pesanta Urfolk label. Neofolk with a lot of cascadian influence, strings, etc, and male / female vocals (the male half of the duo is also in the project Noctoaa, which is also very good). The vocals in particular are great, good harmonization and a decent range too. They released their debut album in June of 2016 and it's good stuff.
