Just finished with Watchtower - Concepts of Math: Book One. Now listening to Butthole Surfers - Electriclarryland

Wow, from the sublime to the ridiculous there.

Now playing: Darkthrone - 'Arctic Thunder'.

It's hard to know if Fenriz and Nocturno's hearts are still in it. I guess it's ok in a 'not much happens' sort of way.

Seagulls Insane And Swans Deceased Mining Out The Void - self titled.


Found a neat article on BC yesterday about the Let The World Burn coalition, which is basically Silesia's growing Black Metal scene featuring such bands as Furia (a lot of the featured bands use Furia frontman Nihil's studio to record).  Anyway of the many bands featured I am currently exploring SEAGULLS INSANE AND SWANS DECEASED MINING OUT OF THE VOID who thankfully are not as tongue in cheek as the name suggests and do some very grown up and mature sounding BM/post-BM.  They feature Nihil from Furia and Havok of (ex)Behemoth fame also.

    • Black metal is the snow-covered forest at sunset; the full moon glimpsed through jagged trees; the candle that flickers in ghost winds; the indelible emptiness of the lonely human soul that cries out to empty skies.

    • I’ve been watching a bunch of nature documentaries recently. Dangerous animals only, for the most part, because I refuse to devote an hour of my life watching turtles mosey around the deep blue. Additionally, I’ve sought out very in-depth material so I can appreciate the animal being analyzed. As a result I’ve been able to watch a decent amount of material closely scrutinizing the habits of predators, and that’s given me a particularly good context for understanding Sadist’s 2015 album “Hyena”.

      This album is intended to track the habits of a hyena. Seems a bit on the nose, but bear with me; the album’s style is important. The album takes the listener on a markedly violent safari in an open-top jeep. Feel the wind in your hair, enjoy the natural splendor of the savannah, watch some animals murder and/or eat each other. Bring along some Mango Jive but for goodness sake leave your droewors back at the hut. Musically, as far as the metal goes – it’s a technical death/thrash album with the ferocity of the latter and the substance of the former. The vocals are higher-pitched snarls, characteristic of Sadist and perfect for the concept; in fact the entire production isolates the smooth bass to allow for moodier lines from said instrument.

      I’ve always noticed that in the grand sweep of folk metal African music usually gets left out. Makes some sense – I’ve heard quite a lot of traditional African music and it’s way too happy and tropical. Then again, Dan Swano, Skindred and even Equilibrium have managed to make Caribbean music work in metal, so it’s not impossible. The next best thing is something thematically evocative, which is what “Hyena” represents. It’s not perfect; Sadist could have paced out the textures better and deepened the nature sounds, perhaps taking influence from the largely untouchable Russo-Finnish metal masters Second To Sun. That being said, it’s a one-of-a-kind work and Sadist deserves credit for taking their vicious brand of tech-death on a sun-bleached adventure into the wild.

    • After listening to both albums, I am having difficulty deciding which I think is better.  Both have excellent songs and guitar work, and express the atmosphere of Burzum extremely.  Personally, however, I think that the vocals are delivered better on Filosofem.  Filosofem also has more songs, but the 25 minute synth track is not as good as Tomhet.  What do you all think?

    • Post photos of your various collections here! 

      Here are three shots of my black metal collection. The first is the whole thing, but i've also included two closer shots that should be clearer when zooming in etc.  

      Entire Black Metal CD collection: 

      Top half:

    • On BM scene there are also good worth of attention female vocalists. Some of my fav bands.

      1 Astarte - All female black metal band from Greece. In my opinion Tristessa is one of the best female growler.

      2 Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - Onielar and her growls and style are something amazing. Nothing more nothing less. 

      3 Gedanken Toten Lebens - Interesting one-woman atmospheric black metal project. Lyrics are about naure, death and philosophy. 

      Who is your favourite black metal female vocalist? Do you like these bands? Or maybe you think black metal isn't for women? Let's start the discussion!
