Svartsyn – In Death (Qua Black Metal)

Svartsyn – In Death (Qua Black Metal)

I think I've been disappointed by Agonia Records on a single occasion only, but this isn't why I haven't looked at them in awhile. The real reason is a number of the bands they carry are so huge I typically don't pay attention to the promos past a listen, in spite of how good they […]

VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum

Well we had fun this week posting a bunch of stupid crap on Facebook to see how social media works.  Our conclusion?  It's fueled by utter stupidity.  As the activity climbed, we realized the most boring of us are more interested in crap memes and stupid, catchy phrases, which honestly we kind of took and […]

Blaze of Perdition – Near Death Revelations

It's always tragic when a band has to experience death, not simply screaming about it or symbolizing it via music.  When real death hits anyone, how to cope?  Finding life in those ashes can be difficult for most, nearly impossible for others, if possible at all.  For music it can be a total tragedy.  Certain […]

Decline of the I – Rebellion

You know what's annoying?  Pretentious critics who pull out obscure quotes to verify their grasp of thought.  They must be feared, but remember, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself (John F. Kennedy, 1905).  Now we're not trying to make enemies, but it's been said if you want to make enemies, try […]

Forgotten Tomb – Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love

If there's one hard sell in black metal, it's the kind further delineated through words like 'suicidal', 'hateful' (and or 'misanthropic'), or perhaps 'depressing'.  DSBM is usually an instant soul killer for most, no matter the level of anti-depressants in your blood.  You could be filled with months of mood-numbing psychotropics and it wouldn't make […]

Centinex – Redeeming Filth

This was a day when we wanted to feel manly, or womanly.  It was a day to break down gender barriers, to enter a world where everyone can be beast and the image is not restricted to false presentations in the media.  This is that day.  This is the day when you toss things around […]

Varathron – Untrodden Corridors of Hades

Well, this was a ruined special review.  Originally, we intended on dealing out this on Saturday and calling it Satan Saturday, thereby giving us an excuse to post a Satanic something rather on Saturday thereafter and start a new trend no one else would pay attention to.  So that fell through, and then we figured, […]

Den Saakaldte: Faen i Helvete

Do you guys like oatmeal? Because this review is oatmeal based. Oatmeal is great because of all the varieties of food that it can be mixed with such as berries, peanut butter, yogurt, jelly, cinnamon, protein powders, etc,.. Black metal is oatmeal and this bowl has been prepared by Den Saakaldte with their album, Faen […]

Forgotten Tomb: …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil

One day, while looking for some depressing, suicidal, angst-spewing black metal, came across the name of Forgotten Tomb.  A tomb that is forgotten?  Does it get any more forlorn?  It would have to be both depressing and good, correct?  Yes, or make that more like yeeeeessssssss, well most of it.  ...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil marks […]
