  1. There is nothing wrong with limited edition - IF it fills the demand that is there. But the artificial scarcity just benefits flippers. I have never done year end lists either. I am still (and will always be) coming to grips with the classics!
  2. At this point I don't even bother to try and follow new releases - apart from a select few bands. The trend towards limited editions/buy-now-or-cry-later hype releases makes it easier to just ignore what is being released, rather than find something good that is impossible to find. That's why I never bother with Vothana, for instance.

    Also, I have a personal hunch that there are a lot more people would could do what these serial killers do, but just never had the right set of circumstances to provoke the behavior. There are so few actual serial killers, statistically speaking, that it is no wonder that so many warning signs/contributing factors appear in each case. I would be interested to hear what your brother might have to contribute!

    I think genetics might play some sort of role, but most is probably environment. In other circumstances, he might have gone on to work in a competitive field (where being a sociopath might be a benefit!), or to become just another closeted though harmless freak. But I am no psychologist!
  5. Sounds good. Drudkh is perfect for solitary nights!
  6. I don't think their stuff is too hard to get in the US, as their record label has a US distro: https://shopusa.season-of-mist.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?p=1&q=drudkh
  7. To the best of my understanding that is correct for the most/best of their albums. I think there are a few albums, however, that do have printed lyrics that are not attributed to a poet.
  8. Somebody has to keep the lights on on the farm! Something tells me he makes a lot more money that we might expect from Burzum.
  9. But were any of the post prison albums really necessary either? (kidding!) I don't know what the situation was like when this was released. Maybe it was put out instead of a repress of the earlier albums?
  10. I feel like quitting might be a really strong word to use in this context. I have moved away from metal in recent years, but it was less to avoid it and more to pursue a new musical interest.

    Gummo always seemed way too weird for me to ever want to see it - despite the Burzum music!

    Horror Films

    Agreed. It feels much more like an art film to me.
  13. Blazebirth Hall was a collection of Russian bm bands that was around for a while in the 90's. I can't say that I am an expert on them, but they originated the sound that bands like Drudkh/Hate Forest picked up on. I usually only hear good things about them. https://www.metal-archives.com/labels/BlazeBirth_Hall/3260 I second this. It works really well for US buyers. Also, NWN is a solid distro. I ordered from him before, and would recommend him for anyone into war black/death metal.
