Xenophobic Ejaculation / Reek of the Unzen Gas Fumes split cd

It took a long time to find this, but I finally got a copy.  I ended up having to order it from Brazil, but the cost was surprisingly reasonable.

What do you say when your mum asks what you’re listening to?

I find that when speaking with anyone who does not listen to extreme music, it is usually the best policy to avoid too many specifics - that way you avoid weird looks and concerns for your sanity.

Picked up these 4 albums for 20 quid! all I need to get now is the deluxe edition of Eternal Idol, and I have the full Tony Martin collection! Love Headless Cross and TYR, but need to listen to Forbidden and Cross Purposes, i’ll listen to them on my Pizza Deliveries 😁

I recently purchased and received Marduk - 'Heaven Shall Burn When We Are Gathered'. It's the remastered version with the infinitely better album art. 

This completes my collection of Marduk's 14 studio albums! And now that I have the full set on CD, plus the 'Funeral Marches and Warsongs' DVD, plus my recently acquired 'Panzer Division Marduk' shirt, I can safely say that Marduk are one of my all time favourite bands ever exclusively. 

Their placement at number 10 (I think) in my Top 20 list in the thread of the same name rings true. 

Other purchases I've recently made: 

Mutiilation - 'Black Millenium'

Vlad Tepes - 'War Funeral March'

Children of Bodom - 'Hexed'

Impaled Nazarene - 'Absence of War Does Not Mean Peace'

Dark Funeral - 'Secrets of the Black Arts' remastered double disk version

Lifelover - 'Sjukdom'

Shining - 'Everyone, Everything, Everwhere, Ends’ boxset

Mayhem - 'Grand Declaration of War' remixed and remastered version, which I've analysed to within an inch of its life in the Mayhem thread in the Black Metal forum. 

I also had a black jacket adorned with some Shining patches to become a Shining jacket. It's beyond.

Now just imagine if she walked past his bedroom and heard what she already knew to be the furious sound of xenophobic ejaculation... Probably for the best that she doesn't find out.

At least I didn't buy the t-shirt...

Sacramentum "Far Away From the Sun" - again no idea what  happened to the digital version.  Beginning to think I went on some inebriated anti-melodic BM purge of my music library one night and woke up hungover, wearing my Marduk t-shirt the next day without any memory of the night before. 🤔

You’ve chosen a couple of cracking albums to replace the lost digital works. 

I’ve bought a couple more Mayhem oddities on eBay which I’ll photograph when they come in. The Mayhem collection is looking pretty decent these days as I tend to snap up as many bootlegs and curiosities as I can.

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.

    • It is fair to say that the Greek stalwarts of the Black Metal scene now have a sound that rarely ventures into the territory so well tread on "Thy Mighty Contract" and "Non Serviam" but it is also fair to say that "The Heretics" sounds from start to finish like a band who firmly stamp themselves on the metal map for 2019.  What album number thirteen from Rotting Christ does is take a measured approach to variation and repetition to build a memorable and lasting experience.

      The sound itself goes from dark and brooding metal and hard rock to almost Gothic metal proportions.  Yet at the same time that familiar melodic warmth remains in situ throughout.  More often than not there's that big soaring melodic riff riding the vocals like a surfer with his board.  "The Voice of the Universe" does this superbly as does "The Sons of Hell".  The overall feel the record as a whole leaves me with is one of ritualistic allure, tracks like "Hallowed Be Thy Name" and "Fire God and Fear" build well like powerful incantations being cited from voluminous tomes, flooding forwards intermittently with flowing dark melodies.


      It does remind me a lot of Behemoth ("The Satanist" Behemoth, not last years pompous bollocks Behemoth), with the theme of religion so heavily referenced but at the same time it feels like a much more cohesive effort than recent Behemoth keeping a level of consistency and restraint to the songwriting which holds the attention well.  Only once does the album visit anything like Black Metal on "I Believe", here they base a poem by Nikolaos Kazantzakis at the centre of the chaotic and frantic pace and sadly it fails miserably on my ears, coming across as just filler.  My only other criticism is that it does get a bit samey in places (namely the intros to each track).  Otherwise it is a perfectly respectable piece of dark metal.  C'mon, we can't this black metal anymore folks.
