true or false: ganzmord's monolithic in darkness album is the black metal album of the year.

answer: TROO!

Judging by the songs on that myspace, that doesn't really sound evil or scary. It kind of sounds like my TV is broke and someone is working on the street outside.

I've been listening to the new DHG. I like the weird parts, but the actual black metal parts are too thinly produced, especially the drum sound. It's kind of cool, but I'm not as in love with it as the rest of the metal dudes on here seem to be.

I've been listening to the new Watain a bit more, and while I still like it a lot, I can't say they're doing anything really fascinating that Immortal weren't doing back at the turn of the millennium. I hope this new Glorior Belli is good, though, because I have a lot of faith in French black metal right now and I'd hate for them to be the band to blow their home country's winning streak.

yay a thread for people like me, run by people like me, talking about music made for people like me!

They're called Accidental Suicide, the album is titled Deceased, it's from 1992, the cover art was done by the bassist from Cradle of Filth, and they're on Grind Core records. Lots of cookie monster growling and killer guitar solos.

i 'knew' those dudes via tape-trading, i'm pretty sure (i have their demo around somewhere, unlabelled with no cover so it usually takes a listen to remember what the fuck it is). did eric greif produce that? he produced fucking everything from that scene (milwaukee area) - morbid saint, morta skuld, viogression...

also i just got coffins "other side of blasphemy." plug ugly autopsy/winter/c. frost worship. and the tondra/nordic mist split, two bands featuring nunslaughter and minch (!) members, both seemingly named after drink mixers, both sounding more or less like celtic frost.

oh yeah, and entety "cadaveric necrogrind" is like carcass without the brains. or with the brains SPLATTERED ON YER FUCKIN WALL.

anyone like SCEPTER? or are you all PUSSIES?

Black eyes stare at the sun
Burning wheel in the sky
Frozen hearts turn to fire
(As) sunset bleeds into night
Energy bolts for power and spell
Are harnessed from death and despair
Weapons of war are begging for blood
UNLEASH THE FUCKING SLAYER!

Never lost never drawn
Never to be guiled
Harder than tempered steel
Born to lose live to win
Fuck'em till you die
Your only thought is to kill
When you're obsessed by metal

Slave and master side by side
Or one beneath the other
Only one of them can have the power
Whether by the demons
Or of the burning sword
They say the same get on your knees
And suck your fucking lord

Obsessed by metal
Obsessed by death
Obsessed by black desire
Obsessed by power beyond my control
Obsessed by fucking fire
Obsessed by fury
Obsessed by hatred
Obsessed by vengeance and lust
Fuck off and die 'cause we gotta live
WE ARE OBSESSED BY METAL

scott seward, Thursday, 21 June 2007 04:32 (sixteen years ago) link

Hrmm, so uhh, is it just me or is that Ganzmord song basically polka with some chaotic grindy bits between verses? I guess it doesn't swing enough for that to be quite true, but this song is way too happy to be evil. I did like the Bad Brains section. Could do without the Death-style bridge.

I think there's something in me that in effect strips off all the noise and screaming and takes the melody/beat to the fore. This kind of sucks, because it makes a lot of these evil bands sound surprisingly happy. Often rockabilly-like (Heretic come to mind)
Maybe I've simply lost my black metal listening-skills. [insert bit about "faggots don't like $band it hurts their pussys"]
I just don't feel the grim any more!
I did consider going to see Nunslaughter live, but suspect I'd be sick of it in 10 minutes, just like I was with the (admittedly funny) live record I used to have.

So, fuck it all. Thrash is where it's at. I'm gonna go put on some Terror Squad! Discö bloody discö!

Øystein, Thursday, 21 June 2007 04:36 (sixteen years ago) link

ganzmord makes me happy! there is some GREAT noise on the album. i still like the stuff from the split though too. the stuff from the demo on the album is the most over-the-top skreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee noise. in a year, he'll probably be scoring operas and forming bm supergroups.

DOLLAR GORE RULES.

How about free gore? My husband did security at one of the Metal Fests in Milwaukee (Hawkwind, do you live there?) eons ago and came home with a stack of free CDs. One title I'll never forget was Inbreeding The Anthropophagi (had to look up "anthropophagi") by Deeds of Flesh who might be too girlie for this thread. Also remember a song called "Chunks in the Shower" which AMG tells me is by Deeds of Flesh as well. But other "chunks" titles came up and I came across this album by one Broken Hope:

http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:dcfwxq9hld6e

Titles seem promising beyond "She Came Out In Chunks": "Coprophagia" (know that word!), "Hobo Stew," "Decimated Genitalia," and, my favorite, "Felching Vampires." No nun rape, though, unless "Preacher of Sodomy" preaches thusly. And you gotta love that parental advisory sticker.

Aside: you should check out nunsploitation cinema if you haven't already. Start with Alucarda and then move your way down. I can't get enough of the stuff.

ahh, scott - i'm so glad you dig morsure, i mentioned them on rolling metal and no one seemed to give a shit. that album's fucking great. i said it somewhere else and i'll say it here: the metal urbain of thrash.

going to have to check out the latino thrash links later, but i remember in the late 80s when the mexican dudes started getting into the scene in a big way, some killer bands and many of them didn't get past the demo stage. sadistic intent and nausea/terrorizer did, though.

"I bought the Whitehorse 2xCD from 20 Buck Spin."

i like it. i'd never heard whitehorse before. they do the ugly epic doom thing very well. i might like that monarch! double cd on crucial blast more though. maybe.

you know what i REALLY like is the stormcrow/sanctum split that 20 buck spin sent me. but i'm a sucker for a d beat. stormcrow and sanctum call their music WAR CRUST. which is a great tag. i wonder what last fm would come up with if i typed that in.

also got the new one from Forgotten Woods. from Norway. first album in over 10 years! they must have gotten lost in those woods. or they forgot to make a record. in the woods. i'm sad that oystein doesn't feel the grim anymore :( that means that geir is the lone grim Norwegian on ilm. and that is really sad!

not 'old', but kind of obsessed with the band Fluids lately. many call this the "Mortician-clone", some pejoratively, some in praise, but it's somewhat unfair. the main similarities are that they have programmed drums (but much quieter and more subtle than Mortician's endless battering ram), really sub-zero detuned guitar/bass and the vocals aren't too different, but riff-wise, they like to play hella fucking slow, whereas Mortician often do fast deathgrind that can be an incomprehensible blur of power chords at times. Fluids like to slow it down and pummel. Like Mortician also, no solos.

but they also do a lot of synth work, sometimes between songs or as an intro to songs, and it's unsettling. oh, and the final similarity is the soundbites, though Fluids doesn't take theirs from movies, but real life horrors.

if you're into things like complex riffing or, idk, significant variance, look elsewhere, but when I'm in the mood for this oppressive shit, it's pretty great.

this is basically why i don’t like them nearly as much as mortician. kicking off with your record with a guy reading his suicide note before presumably offing himself is just not my idea of a good time.

Aha I remember this

two months pass...

one of my bleaker reviews! from 2007? my economic message is almost Trumpian here. who knew? i was in a bad mood.

Defcon 4 - The Bad Road
You ever see the movie Defcon 4? Yeah, me neither. Or wait, did I? Eh, probably. Who knows anymore. I’m so jaded when it comes to kitschy apocalyptica. And my memory is poor. And I’ve seen a million movies. Today at work I was emptying one of those big outdoor ashtrays. You know the ones. A Rubbermaid. Jesus, Rubbermaid, there’s a movie for you. Thousands of Ohioans living and dead could tell the whole dirty story while gritting their teeth at the memory of the loss and the misplaced pride. What, like the end of the world hasn’t actually come yet? You need futuristic neon dystopias to tell the tale of man’s folly? Take a look around, buddy. Anyway, this big-ass plastic ashtray with the gaping metal mouth was beyond full. The butts crammed to the top formed a single tube of soggy and yet hardened nic fit. It took forever to get them out of there. And I couldn’t help but feel like I had seen this movie before. And I had. In a way. When I was 16 and wiping shit off of supermarket bathroom walls. When I was 26 and on my hands and knees cleaning mouse shit off of dirty deli floors. And when I was 36 and changing stinky diapers by myself in a small damp house far from everyone and everything that I knew and trying to embrace the love I felt for my son, while, at the same time, ducking dark storm clouds of isolation and fear.
Which is just another way of saying that Defcon 4 are a decent Boston punk band that mixes doom and crust and sharpened Eyehategod teeth all in the service of…what? I don’t know. Another pennant? Hatred of Ben Affleck’s street cred? All I know is, from the area of the universe that gave me SSD and Converge, I expect MORE pain. And MORE convincing wails of torment. Their stylistic twists and turns aren’t as compelling as the more advanced cosmic crust moves of Kylesa or Baroness either. But, hey, they are young, right? I have no idea, are they? Well, they sound young. And kinda peppy even. And hanging out with Steve Austin was a good move too. Their record sounds smooth. I’m just not feeling very smooth. I give any young band the same advice I gave a guy I met last week who only has two months to live (gallbladder): It’s never too late to become a reader. You might not want to start with War & Peace though.

i don't really need much more out of life really. don't get me wrong i like lots of new death but the form was perfected so long ago. all its many forms were. i do love variations on a theme though. the reinvention of the death wheel. forever and ever. but there are some days, like today, when cruddy demos and singles and EPs are all one really needs.

my problem with death metal now is the definition of 'brutal' death has changed to this homogeneous, unimaginative glut of bands that are basically just breakdowns, pingy drums, and pig-vocals with sterile, pristine production, whereas 'brutal' death in the 90s had this wide gulf of talented bands with earthy, raw production and personality. oh, there was shit too, lots of it, but like nowadays idk who is even at the forefront of 'brutal death' that isn't just an old school band that didn't retire.

which is...why I liked Disgorge (US) a lot, tbh.

(the non-brutal wing of death metal, otoh, seems to be fine as it has always been, thriving even)

oh yah all the flavors like prog/tech/blackened/doom have so many great bands doing it now. an abundance of riches. that crunchy riffy swedish style. i love all the stuff that sounds like that now. even some people who know how to write songs! like, memorable songs.

listened to nihilist and entombed demos today too. they never get old. they could come out today and they would be my new favorite band!

I love that shit, but I freely admit that it all sounds the same. I buy those albums based solely on cover art, because I know they're gonna sound indistinguishable from one another. I feel like I should put them all into a giant playlist like I do with all the Total compilations on the Kompakt label, and just shuffle it. Gurgh gurgh gurgh gurgh gurgh, ping ping ping ping ping, all day long.

a little fancy for this thread but i wanted to give some love to something new. i love the way it sounds. very digi. i like the way its edited. like it was engineered by someone with a latin freestyle background. death metal bands should start putting their records together on tape with razorblades. that would be awesome.

why won't someone reissue this on cd for me? the old cd copies go for stupid money. they became something completely different later but i don't care about that stuff i am all about this album.

I'd not heard that Necrophobic but the guitars are SO clearly a Tomas Skogsberg production.

I would prefer not to. (Chinaski), Thursday, 23 May 2024 14:10 (three weeks ago) link
