Very nice, Balers. Nice mix of media there too. That kamikaze (I presume) pilot image is cool. 

I need to post the updated Mayhem collection photo. Actually I need to take another shot because I’ve got another CD that isn’t in last months photo on the Mayhem thread. 

Actually maybe I’ll wait until ‘Daemon’ comes out and then take a fresh photo. 

Bloody hell, the gaining of the collection is simple, it’s the constant vanity photos that kill me hahaha.

The Kamikazi pilot is the grandfather of the band's guitarist, he died in battle during World War II.  The ep was composed in his honor.

Which version of Daemon do you plan on purchasing?  There are some nice bundle deals/limited editions available in the US.

Thanks, but it is far from complete!  I am still missing a version of their first demo, and also need to track down a copy of the split with Der Sturmer/Command/Fogged by Fleshflies.  The split lp with Via Dolorosa and Massenvernichtung looks nice too. 

Do you like Reek of the Unzen Gas Fumes?

Oh my bad haha, I'm not too familiar with their discog yet.

I've been listening to their ST and their 2018 EP "Buddha Composted Pond" and I love the sound so far. What would you recomend from them?

I am glad that someone else is enjoying their music too! All of their material is great. Personally, I would recommend the "Detritivorous Kamigami" demo with the collaboration tracks and the split with Xenophobic Ejaculation. The XE split is hard to find now, but the demo was just reissued. The split with Konflict is really good too.

I’m really going to have to check out these bands you rave about. The story behind the kamikaze guy is awesome. 

As for ‘Daemon’, I’m probably going to buy a foolishly large and complex package. I haven’t really looked into it yet. Once it’s out I’ll buy the best version I can find at the cheapest price on eBay.

I just picked up Darkthrone's - 'The Wind of 666 Black Hearts' rehearsals release from 2017, and thought, I've got a fair bit of Darkthrone stuff. Here it is:

Updated Darkthrone collection. 

I've been going through a bit of a Darkthrone resurgence lately and finally picked up all the releases I felt I was missing. Most interesting is the 'Black Death and Beyond' release, with its huge book that includes a biography, rare photos and everything you could imagine about the band, as well as three disks that chronicle their three stages: Black (excellent), Death (good) and Beyond (dodgy). 

I also have a flag, a couple of versions of 'Transilvanian Hunger' including the notorious Norsk Arisk deleted version and some clothes that I wear to church. 

Edit: Just realised I've effectively double-posted, considering the very last post was also my Darkthrone collection. I'll change it up next time with a different collection!

All the albums you felt you were missing? You've probably discussed them somewhere else, but are you not a fan of the great Plaguewielder? Or albums like FOAD, Dark Thrones and Black Flags, Circle the Wagons?

I'm not a fan of those albums, no. There are only so many Darkthrone 'heavy metal' cover band albums you can listen to before you shout, "Enough Gylve"! 

Besides, I already own the Celtic Frost albums that they've ripped off.

Even Plaguewielder? I think that one is unfairly maligned relative to the other mid-era albums.

I guess I need to give it a few more listens then. In all honesty, it's been ages since I've even heard it (as in 15 years ages), so maybe it's not as bad as I recall. After all, one vampire can't be wrong. 

I'll buy the cool re-release I think. The new album covers are better than all of the old ones from the mid era.

I haven't even listened to it in years either. I just know I enjoyed it. I don't mind the old album covers from that era; they're suitably unassuming just like the music.

Do either of us have time for unassuming music and artwork? 

Requiem listens to assuming music and views assuming artwork exclusively.

No, not really.

I prefer pretension but only 9 times out of 10. That way when I unearth a forgotten gem I can pretend it's still fresh, unlike an overused cliche. Modest mid-era Darkthrone get can occasionally steal a spot on my iPod, but only at the expense of other Darkthrone albums.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
