That is, audio outside the realm of music. e.g. audiobooks, podcasts, lectures, etc.

in my occupation i get a lot of time to myself for the most part. i haven't been into music much lately (it's a phase that happens sometimes), and i've worn out my Coast to Coast collection pretty hardcore so i'm looking for something to fill that void.

i've been trying to find audio along the lines of mythology (specifically norse and germanic. i downloaded something from demonoid ages ago but i've not listened to it yet, all it says in the title is "mythology" so i'm not even sure what the contents are) and maybe some theology, anything in the paranormal realm, but anything outside that will do too. preferably non-fiction, preferably informative.

any recs you can throw my way?

drugs and liquor, what a kicker. discuss them here.

i've been stuck into sobieski vodka for a couple months, great for the price, about $8 for 750ml, mixes great with anything.

Rock / The Merry Thoughts
« on: June 15, 2016, 12:39:25 AM »
I've been a sucker for second wave goth shit for a long time, specifically for The Sisters of Mercy. A few years ago I was trolling around for stuff similar to their first album, and no matter how many bands or albums I listened to that tried to or claimed to capture that sound, none did. Apart from this band, they dig on early Sisters of Mercy perfectly. In fact, there were some claiming that Andrew Eldritch, principal songwriter and vocalist for TSOM, was using TMT as a studio project. This was fueled by the fact that the vocalist for The Merry Thoughts beared a striking similarity to Eldritch in both vocal and visual appearance

(andrew eldritch, top;; marvin arkham of TMT, bottom)

In any case, there's no telling whether that's true or not since The Merry Thoughts has been MIA since the year 2000 (and interestingly that's around the same time Andrew Eldritch got all weird about recording studio material okay i'll stop but it's a good theory). They leave behind a couple EP's and two studio albums.

Ya'll want downloads, lemme know. I got their discography up in here.

Black Metal / While Sad Spirits Around Me Stroll
« on: June 12, 2016, 02:16:58 PM »

A solo instrumental depressive black metal project from France. Unfortunately the musician behind the project is now seemingly deceased (car accident last year).

It's very French sounding, I guess you could call it "blackwave," but closer to the original sound than the derivative material prancing around in the recent years.

In The Distance (2007) / Grey (2008)

I watched a movie the other day called Nekromantik. Quite by accident too, as I was looking for another movie originally and the premise for this one sounded pretty gnarly:

A street sweeper who cleans up after grisly accidents brings home a full corpse for him and his wife to enjoy sexually, but is dismayed to see that his wife prefers the corpse over him.

It's an okay movie, I was expecting something more narrative driven but the VFX and the music makes up for the shortcummings. I'd rec it tp connoisseurs of "dark" cinema and art house flicks.

The soundtrack is A+++

Buy/sell/trade / Distros/Merch llinks
« on: June 09, 2016, 10:53:00 PM »
Inspired by conversation in the shoutbox. Post distros and junk here and whether or not they're any good and I'll try to add it to the master list (aka the OP) so people won't have to go digging through the thread to find links.

All That Is Heavy - Probably the doom metal distro for anyone who doesn't want to hit multiple shops for their junk.

Hells Headbangers
- Specializes in pretty much every type of extreme metal, one of the bigger distros in North America. +++For shirts and patches. Lots of cheap music too, their sale list is nice to pick over.

Holy Mountain Printing
- Primarily deals in shirts and other related media, has deals mostly with American black metal/crust bands.

Hypnotic Dirge - Canadian distro/label that's been striving along at a decent rate. Puts out a lot of material both digitally and physically each year, also the North American distributor for Solitude Productions. Quality label.

Salvation Distro - I heard about this one via Neill Jameson of Krieg, but I've not ordered from them yet. Huge stock of imported and hard to find/obscure records, priced at ridiculously reasonable rates. Not much merch in terms of shirts and that kind of thing, but they stock every major type of media (CDs, cassettes, vinyl records).

Tesco (DE/EU) / (USA) - Industrial, power electronics, martial, neofolk, etc etc.

Crawling Chaos Productions - BOGAN CULT ETERNAL

Rage in Eden - Martial, apocalyptic, neofolk, etc.

Pest Productions - Represents and distributes most of China's black metal and neofolk. Also stocks a lot of hard to find neofolk rarities at certain times.

Industrial / TriORE

I can't remember whether I posted about this project on the old site or not, but just to be safe I'll post about it here.

It's a collaboration between Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio and Triarii, fusing the themes and instrumentation of both, basically creating a hypersexual militaristic martial industrial project. They've only done a single album so far, released a good while ago, but word is they've got other material in the works if not finished already. I highly recommend them for anybody into either project or martial industrial in general.

Black Metal / Batushka
« on: June 05, 2016, 08:27:22 PM »
What's the consensus on this project? For the uninitiated, this is a project from Poland with lyrics in Russian and material incorporated from and antithetical to the eastern orthodox christian church. They incorporate chanting into their music too, I remember yellow and carg were really into gregorian chants and we were on a mission for a while to find some black metal that incorporated something similar.

the rumor mill posits that the "anonymous" members of Batushka are actually from Mgla, but that doesn't really matter because Batushka stands well on it's own.

Anyhow, give it a shot if not already otherwise discuss or something.

Similar recommendations would be pretty groovy too, something with a similar atmosphere in terms of solemnity and apostasy.

Post links and junk or whatever.

I just found this earlier. Didn't feel like making a separate thread for it so here we are. Black gospel mixed with some extreme metal and noise elements.

Doom/Sludge/Stoner / Head of the Demon
« on: June 05, 2016, 05:24:15 AM »
I picked up on this band from the metal tracking index RockBox. Judging from the way it was described, I was expecting something like a cross between Marduk and The Great Old Ones. I was wrong, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Occult and Lovecraft inspired psychedelic doom metal from Sweden, has members from Saturnalia Temple, Kaamos, and Ofermod. I haven't heard their debut, but their album from this year (Sathanas Trismegistos) is really great stuff and worth repeat listens.

Closer to Saturnalia Temple than L'ira del Baccano or other more "jammy" or stoner influenced bands. Still just as murky and hazy though, real archaic sounding.


Black Metal / Empyreal
« on: June 05, 2016, 05:16:54 AM »
A DSBM project from my neck of the woods. The guy who started it is a friend of mine, draws influences from a wide range of other projects, including Xasthur and Sapthuran. Very reminiscent of mid 00's California black metal.
He's got at least one release recorded, last I heard he was looking to get it pressed someplace. He's got a pretty killer live lineup, they're doing a mini tour later this month along the west coast.

Only one track up on the bandcamp, but I'll see if I can get hold of something more to post too.

We always need one of these, no?


Branikald - Spirit Sense

Sounds like Urfaust in some parts.

Black Metal / Uada
« on: June 05, 2016, 12:13:35 AM »
Melodic black/death metal from Portland, Oregon. Features members of Infernus, plus the vocalist of Ceremonial Castings.

A friend of mine on fagbook obsessively posted about them when they released their album earlier this year. It's decent stuff, pretty heavy on the Swede worship but not like Thulcandra. Reminds me a lot of Unanimated actually.


Inquiries / Suggestions/future updates
« on: June 04, 2016, 05:45:08 PM »
What do you want to see happen here, on the forum, maybe to the site as a whole? How do you want to proceed?

At the moment I'm treating the forum as it is right now as a temporary measure, a template that's going to be changed over time to reflect the "fresh start" we've got on our hands. Primarily it'll be a cosmetic thing, might be something more, I haven't given it too much thought.

tl;dr, make suggestions for future features and future developments of the site/forum, even if you feel they're menial. At this point I'm open to anything.

Oh, and let me know if the shoutbox is visible to you. I just set it up and I haven't been able to find a permissions list so I'm not sure if I'm the only one who can see it.

Rock / ISON
« on: June 04, 2016, 05:42:23 PM »
This is a project between one of the members of Crippled Black Phoenix and the vocalist of Draconian. It's a mix of drone, dark ambient, post-rock, and shoegaze.

i heard their 2015 EP last week and it's really great, a cool cosmic atmosphere. Darkspace reminds me of them although musically they're very dissimilar.
