  1. I have been meaning to add to this thread for a while, so here is my nomination for the best release of the decade. Grizzly Fetish - "Demo 2018" This might seem like a strange choice, but I feel that this demo deserves a spot here for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, Grizzly Fetish is one of the best new bands of the decade, and "Demo 2018," has, thus far, been his best release. Musically, the band is a study in contrast - harsh vocals/heavily distorted rhythm guitar paired with interludes of clear guitar melodies and prominent synths. He is able to blend this usually disparate elements masterfully, using their opposition to mutually emphasize one another. The prominent solos that appear on several songs are also a nice addition that is all too rare in black metal. In addition, I think that "Demo 2018" is indicative of the current state of metal music. On one hand there is a strong desire to look back to classic bands and styles, while many are seeking new ways to reinvent the genre. I think that Grizzly Fetish does both. He pulls inspiration from a variety of bands and syles (Black Mass of Absu, grindcore, black metal, etc.), while making something that is genuinely unique and special.
  2. A split release between Grizzly Fetish (synth-heavy war metal) and Thy Sepulchral Moon (strange black/death metal) will be released soon. Label and date are currently unknown to me.
  3. Supposedly, new material from the masterful black/noise band Black Mass of Absu will be coming out (date unknown, but I can hope for this year!). It has been something along the lines of 20 years since their last release of new material, so anything would be great!
  4. Maybe the second from the bottom is Opeth?
  5. I think the new album is suppose to be a compilation of songs that first appeared as the background music in his videos, so it will likely have the pagan/folk acoustic sound. It sounds as though it was just thrown together on a whim. Whether he admits to feeling it or not, he has become a joke.
  6. He punished himself, in a way. Now the whole world knows how much of a conspiracy-theorist joke he is. The fact that he has become an internet meme means that he failed in his political battle. That all being said, I am looking forward to the new Burzum album.

    I am not sure that this entirely answers my question. Nevertheless, I applaud your poetic abilities!

  14. I figured that most of their material would be banned from youtube... Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  15. Is this on youtube? The ZSS vinyl that I just got has a cover of one of their songs, and I have been interested in checking out their music. Good to see you back, by the way.
  16. Definitely check out ZSS - he is one of the best.
  17. Thanks! I will give it a listen. Just played:
  18. I was listening to this last night. Way more intense than I thought it would be. @Natassja, if you are still looking into some industrial stuff, check this out!
  19. Any particular clips you would recommend? I have not seen many of their live videos.
  20. Recently acquired: -"Moral War" - Zyklon SS 10inch -"Hlose" - Black State lp -"Filth, Rubber, Hatred, and Abuse: Live in United Kingdom 2016" - Axnaar/Bizarre Uproar/Roases/Xenophobic Ejaculation 3cd -"Anti-personel Explosive Device" - Zyklon SS cd Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  21. I have listened to Genocide Organ quite a bit, and really like the heavy industrial style that they represent. I was recently listening my way through their Archive series, and have been meaning to listen to Obituary of the Americas. Have you been listening to their music?
  22. I have been listening to a lot of music by the bands Black Magick SS, Assassination, and Edelweiss lately. They all play an interesting mix of keyboard-heavy, psychedelic rock/doom metal with some bm vocals. I would highly recommend all of them if you are in the mood for something a little different.
  23. An end to a slasher series? I doubt it!
