  1. Abigor - Nachthymnen (From The Twilight Kingdom) Abigor - Opus IV Reconnecting with these guys after having not spun them in a while. I forgot how much I love this band.
  2. Huh. It would seem the current iteration of the vortex really isn't too fond of black metal. Immolation and Daeva will be on my list, but that's about the only overlap.
  3. Lol, man this kid is REALLY sensitive about people not liking his favourite bands.
  4. Ugh.... my most recent ex was the exact same way. If you don't spend X amount of dollars on her present then you don't care about her. Made inexorably worse by the fact that she didn't reciprocate it. For x-mas last year I got here a really nice specialized backpack for mountain biking, $250 or so. She got me...... a bluetooth adapter for my vehicle, and not a very good one either. Probably cost like $20. I'm honestly quite happy being single this holiday season.
  5. That Rauta channel is great. Lots of cool interviews on there. For some Finnish white trash hilarity, check out the Barathrum and Azazel interviews.
  6. Would happily trade my current Yukon winter for a bipolar Australian summer. We're on day three of sub -35 temperatures, was -46 this morning with wind chill. Haven't left the house since Saturday. And it isn't supposed the warm up until this coming weekend at the earliest.
  7. Daeva - Through Sheer Will and Black Magic... (2022) Late year discovery for me and a definite list contender.
  8. Hate Forest - Innermost (BM, Ukraine) Don't finalize those year end lists just yet. New Hate Forest full length just dropped out of nowhere.
  9. The Ruins of Beverast - Foulest Semen of a Sheltered Elite
  10. Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard..... That band name should be illegal.
  11. Blows me out you like Undeath given you sledge similar sounding DM bands as mainstream garbage. I too am quite taken aback that the Goatmaster is fond of Undeath. They're like.... as far from "goat worthy" as you can get whilst still being an extreme metal band. On that note, they're also one of the least "extreme" death metal bands I've ever come across. I would've thought for sure they'd fall into the "poser mainstream garbage" category for him haha. I think they're alright. I mean, I have both their albums, mainly because I figured if everyone and their dog was raving about them then there must be something of substance there, but I don't really hear it. They're remarkably unremarkable.
  12. Its streaming on the bardo methodology website http://www.bardomethodology.com/articles/2022/12/15/misthyrming-med-hamri-interview/?fbclid=IwAR1XRGD99CDXT3e7feNjZz4Z5EIU2bsepwEpZuWiIBGdDK24WZoWHxVjzBg
  13. Misþyrming - Með hamri (2022) Well, I probably just found my AOTY. The Icelandic kings knock it out of the park again.
  14. Oh wow. Goatmaster is going hard in the paint on USBM today. EDIT: Oh yeah and I concur that Blasphemy were a shit band that happend to influence a lot of good ones. Same goes for Revenge.
  15. The particular brand of metalcore that rose to prominence in the 2000's gave that genre an unfairly bad rap, if you ask me. I spent a good chunk of this past year digging into blackened hardcore and really liked a lot of what I found. Stuff like Young And In The Way, Sunlight's Bane and Pilori, to name a few. Nobody calls this stuff "metalcore" but really a black metal/hardcore fusion IS metalcore in the true sense of the word.
  16. Ooooookay buuut..... very very little about fantasy or even sci-fi genres makes much sense to begin with so why would having ethnic diversity among the differing species seem illogical? Like, we're talking about a completely fictional world where dragons exist along with dwarves, wizards, magic, fairies, trolls and orcs and goblins and giant eagles and elves who are immortal...... but if the Hobbits have a bunch of different skin tones then that's a step too far???? That's the point where it all becomes illogical? It's really strange to me that a fictitious fantasy world must have a strict, codified set of guidelines that must be adhered to or else it's "woke" or whatever.
  17. The Dune novel saga would be the only one for me. And as it happens they actually did change both the race and gender of one of the minor characters in the recent Denis Villeneuve adaptation (Liet-Kynes). And, predictably, many fans were utterly outraged by this even though it really didn't change anything meaningful about the character. In fact, had I not already known about the gender change prior to viewing the film, I may not have even noticed. Other than the gender swap, the character was portrayed incredibly accurately in regards to the novelization, rendering the backlash all the more ridiculous. But that didn't stop the anti-woke crusaders from rage posting about it for months on end. I never read Tolkien's works, but I'd be interested to hear how the ethnicity changes in RoP changed the lore significantly.
  18. I mean... this is mostly true but the fact that there was such immense outrage over that Rings of Power Amazon series having an ethnically diverse cast is very revealing. The needle hasn't moved as far as many would like to believe.
  19. Profane Order - One Nightmare Unto Another (Black/Death, Canada) https://nuclearwarnowproductions.bandcamp.com/album/one-nightmare-unto-another?fbclid=IwAR1iHKGHVQh-7FQ3dMaLz5jznZOX5J2y313L1Lgc2Gbvv7uW0mqc One of, if not the very best, War metal bands around right now. Everything they've done has been killer and the new tracks on the BC page are no exception. Releases March 1.
  20. Polemicist - Return Of the Sophist (BM, USA) Saw these guys last night at my local pub in the fucking Yukon Territory. These guys (and gal, their guitar player) made the trip all the way from Portland to play in front of 20-25 people in some buttfuck northern Canadian city. First proper live metal show I've seen since before the pandemic. Very grateful!
  21. Dead's vivid depiction of Australian society also perfectly describes Canada to a T. And like him, I'd leave if I could, though I'm less optimistic that there are significantly greener pastures out there. Our options seem to be... A.) Neoliberal hellscape or some toned downed version of it (European Social Democracy) B.) Islamic Theocracy or... C.) Whatever the fuck China is supposed to be. At least Canada has lots of fresh water (for now...)
  22. Svartidauði actually disbanded and Zhrine are definitely not active either. I'm with Sheol, Misþyrming and Sinmara are ruling that scene at the moment.
  23. Nah they're just some regular, over-the-counter, chewable tablets. "Supplement" probably wasn't the proper term haha.
