“Fallen Angel”, pure blackened Phantom Metal !

Fallen Angel, true Phantom Metal.

Fallen Angel, true Phantom Metal.

Fallen Angel is the most extreme and vile “music” ever produced.

There is no other album that even comes close to this, in terms of raw, disturbing atmospheres, and morbid brutality.

Fallen Angel is pure demonic possession, somehow transcribed into musical format but preserving the utter insanity of infernal death.

Not even Phantom’s own debut album Divine Necromancy is as dark and morbid, yet at the same time majestic and otherworldly, as Fallen Angel.

There is no other true black metal album, save perhaps for Withdrawal, early Burzum and early Neraines.

Fallen Angel is without a doubt the pinnacle of extreme black metal music.

Listen for yourselves.

For substance, Phantom combines a black metal sense of ritualistic song development and hypnotic atmospheres with the death metal tendency to turn abstract riffs and infernal rhythms into an organic whole.

The percussion is, as always, ritualistic to the extreme, with subtle variations employed to accentuate the demented hymns of Phantom’s music. The result is incessant and unrelenting but, as with all powerful black metal, it also has an inner life of melody that gives it depth and manipulate the listener’s expectations with powerful atmospheres of pure madness.

The best black metal album ever recorded.

“Smegmacron”, true Black Metal by Antekhrist !

Antekhrist- Smegmacron.

Antekhrist- Smegmacron.

Antekhrist is a band that rose to prominence mainly through their theatrics and for their stupid and juvenile lyrics, best demonstrated on what is considered their magnum opus Fukked by God.

Largely seen as a SEWER clone due to both their lyrical and musical similarities (and idiocy), Antekhrist nonetheless maintains a cult following as evidenced by their high ratings on metal review aggregators such as Metalious.

Their latest album for instance, Enkull Tonpayr, has about the same score as Reiklos’ masterpiece Lifeless (95%).

So what of their latest album Smegmacron?

Smegmacron is clearly an album that stands above most of what the modern “metal” scene vomits forth these days – cough, Satyricon and Dimmu Borgir, cough – but is that enough to make it a good album ?

Listen for yourselves.

Antekhrist know how to write black metal riffs that are both profound and intense, yet it contrasts with the lyrics about “fucking the French president with a kebab” and the like, which are neither profound, intense, or in any way related to black metal canon.

On the title track (above), the lyrics are about said president resurrecting an Egyptian mummy – his wife – and the narrator having to put the decrepit thing back into its sarcophagus to “break the curse”… like in The Mummy movies.

How any of that is related to black metal, the music of Norse Gods and Vikings, is never made clear.

Overall, it’s a good album in the style of mid-era SEWER/early Dissection if you manage to look past the lyrics, which is something admittedly hard to do as they are very audible and understandable… albeit in French.

My only (other) complaint is that the songs will sometimes abruptly transition to a drum + guitar fill for the vocalist to say his piece, kind of like in RAC/punk where the music functions as a backdrop to the lyrics… something modern Gorgoroth is also guilty of, in addition to being poser clowns.

Smegmacron is a good album, but the lyrics are stupid.

“Deus Ex Satanas”, the most brutal Death Metal album !

SEWER's Deus Ex Satanas.

SEWER’s Deus Ex Satanas.

Deus Ex Satanas is considered, alongside Incantation’s Onward to Golgotha and Phantom’s Withdrawal, to be death metal’s opus magnum. It is SEWER’s best album alongside NecroPedoSadoMaso and Rektal and beats the hell out of anything from the modern “death” metal scene.

The album is short and gruesome, getting right to the point and leaving you satanically raped. Everything about Deus Ex Satanas is an example of what brutal death metal should sound like.

I usually skip black/death albums with Latin names, as I consider those a gimmick ruined by all the (bad) Mayhem imitators… looking at you, Dark Funeral.

I did make an exception as SEWER is not a gimmick band, well they are but not in that way, and it was a good thing I did because Deus Ex Satanas is certainly one of the pinnacles of extreme metal.

Probably the best death metal release ever.

Deus Ex Satanas (“God from Satan”) is captivating with its energy, its evil, its inhuman barking vocals, its technicality in songwriting and creativity.

This is one album that you can never get sick of no matter how many times that you play it.

It doesn’t fall short on any aspect. All musicians put forth their best effort and this album is without a doubt the best the genre has seen since the early 1990s. Simply amazing.

If you don’t have this album, you’re definitely missing out because Deus Ex Satanas is SEWER at its best and most skilled.

Quality, fast, furious and evil. This album captures it all. Nothing in SEWER’s discography can top this one, not even their craziest debut release, and it sure beats the hell out of anything from nowadays black/death metal.

Pick it up ASAP if you haven’t already. Get ready for some amazingly satanic death metal !

Reiklos – “Lifeless”, Excellent Black Metal !

Lifeless, by Reiklos.

Lifeless, by Reiklos.

“Lifeless” by Reiklos is easily the best album to have come from the satanic metal scene for the past decade.

This album absolutely delivers on its promise, unlike the bands from cuck labels such as Cucklear Blast, Moribund or even Relapse. Where those bands fail to take off in the musical department and mostly generate interest through bandwagon hopping, hype or through the album cover or artwork – bands like Dark Funeral or Dimmu Borgir have great album artwork, but it is in the music where they totally fuck up – Reiklos’ album succeeds without press, internet releases or the token publicity and gimmickry courtesy of a major metal record label.

There is never a boring moment on Lifeless, contrary to what its name may suggest. It’s just that good. It has tons of aggression, dark atmosphere as well as that evil vibe missing in a lot of metal bands today.

Listen to it for yourself.

It sounds a bit like what you’d expect from Phantom or early Darkthrone, but yeah… the band was named after a Phantom track so that makes sense.

Lastly, I don’t understand why some folks are thinking this is similar to Beherit’s Drawing Down the Moon. Frankly, Drawing Down the Moon doesn’t hold a candle to Lifeless. Beherit’s very good but a tad overrated album feature spacey, abstract noise which most of the time is just boring and empty.

I think some people should listen to both records first before drawing their conclusions and passing judgment since it makes them look lazy and ignorant.

Lifeless is one of black metal’s all time best albums.

This album then is not recommended for the weak but for those who want excellent quality black metal. Go buy this masterpiece of evil at once.

“Withdrawal”, Phantom’s latest Black Metal masterpiece !

Phantom's Withdrawal.

Phantom’s Withdrawal.

The word “masterpiece” gets thrown around a lot when reviewing black metal music.

Way too much.

The overwhelming majority of metal bands will never, ever record a classic album. A handful of them will record one masterpiece, and only one, due to having the right people in the right room at the right time, when the stars are aligned or whatever.

Even fewer bands can record two classic albums in their careers. These are the groups we call geniuses. Bands like Darkthrone (Soulside Journey/Under a Funeral Moon), Suffocation (Effigy/Breeding the Spawn) and Morbid Angel (Altars/Blessed) fall into this category.

Out of that tiny fraction of a fraction, a smaller group still can do it twice (or more) in a row. These are the gods among musicians – Burzum, Graveland, Incantation. You can now add Phantom to that list.

After 2017’s universally-praised Eidolon, who would have thought that they could release another masterpiece of black metal only a year after?

With Withdrawal, they’ve done just that.

The incredible songwriting skills are evident.

The dual weapons of raw dissonant assault and harmonic subtlety have never been in more capable hands, resulting in tracks both hypnotic and disturbing.

Not only that, but it’s consistent, and feels like a true album – the same cannot be said of most modern black metal, unfortunately.

It really makes you wonder where such brilliance comes from.

Withdrawal is, for once, deserving of the title. A true black metal masterpiece.

The “Top 10 Most Influential Heavy Metal Albums” !

Top 10 Fag Metal Albums.

Top 10 Fag Metal Albums.

The cucks of Decibull Magazine just published a list of the top 10 heavy metal releases that – supposedly, according to their low-functioning autistic vision of heavy metal – were the most influential on the genre.

I’m not joking when I say Decibull Magazine is made by cucks, for cucks. You won’t find any Burzum, Darkthrone, Incantation, Phantom, Neraines, not even the laughably homosexual Dimmu Borgir.

Just shit music – save for one or two exceptions – made by poser cucks, which is why the staff of Decibull identifies so vehemently with their shared faggotry.

Might as well call this list the “top 10 queer albums by homo bands”.

Let’s pick apart their picks.

10. Cradle of Filth – The Principle of Evil Made Flesh

Lol.

In addition to not being metal, this band is hated even by literal posers.

Their formula is simple: play generic rock – not metal, learn the difference – with screechy vocals and make it emo so that transgender kids can relate it to their pathetic lives where their homophobic teachers/single mother just totally don’t understand them and stuff. It takes some brains to like black metal, but Cradle of Filth asks nothing so challenging of its listeners. Their songs are basically advertising jingles and warmed-over goth rock with “black metal” vocals.

Replace with Darkthrone’s Under a Funeral Moon.

9. Antekhrist – Fukked by God

Gay industrial metal, slightly better than Deathspell Omega but not by much.

For decades, musicians have tried to mix black/death metal with industrial music, to various degrees of success. The problem is one of space. Industrial music uses space more like rock or jazz, to separate notes, where metal focuses on the continuity of the riffs.

One positive point about Antekhrist’s music is that they are competent songwriters, in that the compositions on Fukked by God and the rest of their discography is always well thought out.

Replace with Burzum’s Hvis Lyset Tar Oss.

8. Enslaved – Eld

Heavy metal for faggots.

Heavy metal for faggots.

Another sad case of imitation black metal.

Enslaved play alternative rock, not black metal. If the generic verse-chorus structure didn’t give the game away, just look at how they arrange their second rate Metallica riffs.

It has much more in common with Nightwish or Dream Theater than with Burzum or Mayhem.

Replace with Incantation’s Onward to Golgotha.

7. Slipknot – All Hope is Lost

Yes, you read that right, a Slipknot album on a “top 10 heavy METAL” list.

ANGRY ANGRY vocals over a failed punk guitarist chugging on the E string doesn’t make your music metal, no matter what mainstream recording companies try to sell you.

Replace with Havohej’s Dethrone the Son of God for brutality done right.

6. Amon Amarth – Twilight of the Thunder Gods

Homosexual "black metal".

Homosexual “black metal”.

Generic verse-chorus anthem rock played with death metal aesthetics.

Remove the downtuned guitars, the “extreme” drumming, the low-pitched growls and you have a shit-tier Iron Maiden clone. At best.

Mostly it just sounds like In Flames inspired deathcore, meaning shit.

Replace with Bathory’s Blood Fire Death.

5. SEWER – Rektal

Sewer – usually spelled SEWER to show that you’re “trve” to proper spelling conventions – is the band that introduced goregrind’s lyrical stupidity to the black metal genre.

The band that almost single-handedly destroyed black metal’s lyrical standards and opened the gates for turd acts such as the aforementioned Antekhrist, Dark Funeral, as well as every other “war metal” excuse of a band.

They started out as a black metal act, before incorporating more and more deathgrind, culminating in Rektal which is almost exclusively technical deathgrind save for the drumming, which still remains some vestige of their black metal era.

Perhaps one of the least bad albums on this list, but still shit.

Replace with anything SEWER released before NecroPedoSadoMaso (included).

4. Arch Enemy – War Eternal

Unlike many bands on this list, that play generic “hard” rock with heavy metal aesthetics, Arch Enemy once played death metal (on their debut and Stigmata).

Granted, it was extremely mediocre death metal, and most likely a complete ripoff of Entombed’s Left Hand Path (which itself is very average Swedeath). Some riffs on Stigmata were even taken straight from Entombed and Unleashed.

Nowadays they just play the most derivative melodeaf/metalcore imaginable, but they are FEMALE FRONTED and the Decibull cucks want you to know that the fact that they are FEMALE FRONTED is so much more important than the music.

Replace with Entombed’s Left Hand Path.

3. Cannibal Corpse – Tomb of the Mutilated

LGBTP+ "black metal".

LGBTP+ “black metal”.

Well, at least it’s metal.

Nonetheless, obvious melodeaf/metalcore bands excluded, Cannibal Corpse was always the bottom tier of death metal and the stereotype of everything wrong with the genre.

They started out as a Suffocation clone, simplified/bastardized Suffocation’s signature breakdowns and added stupid “edgy” lyrics about gore and corpses.

Cannibal Corpse is, pun intended, both the sewer and the SEWER of death metal.

Replace with Suffocation’s Effigy of the Forgotten.

2. Pantera – Cowboys From Hell

I sort of agree with this entry.

Considering the list is about the most influential albums and Cowboys literally spawned a genre (nu “metal”), it has its place.

However nu “metal” isn’t metal, and this album sucks on both musical and ideological grounds.

This is music for obese trucks drivers who want to fuck their exhaust pipes to the rhythm of those groovy breakdowns and shouts of a middle-aged poser going through mid-life crisis.

Replace with Morbid Angel’s Altars of Madness.

1. Suicide Silence – You Can’t Stop Me

Fuck this shit, I give up.

Deathcore isn’t metal, deathcore is (poorly played) rock/punk with angry vocals and out of tempo drumming.

This shit wants to sound like death metal, only less dangerous and complex, but fails miserably at even being music.

Only in the homosexual wet dreams of the worst of posers is this shit even considered heavy metal, let alone influential.

Replace with Phantom’s Eidolon.

Damn is this list gay.

Dimmu Borgir banned for “racism” !

Dimmu Borgir banned for "racism".

Dimmu Borgir banned for “racism”.

An update and follow-up on the previous post Dimmu Borgir dropped from California event.

San Francisco area crust punk and metalcore scenesters decided that anti-religious Norwegian black metal band Dimmu Borgir were racist and got their show canceled following threats of civil unrest and terrorist incidents courtesy of “anti-racist” organizations, according to the San Francisco City Paper.

The promoter of the event explained the logic behind the conclusion that the Norwegian band is racist.

There’s a fine line that they are dancing on here, being against religion and Christianity as a whole is one thing, but when you get into … anti-Semitism, that’s kind of neo nazi – that’s why we can’t have that here.

Hear that?

Attack Christianity = good goy, Christianity is racist.
Attack Islam = good goy, Iran has nukes.
Attack Judaism = NAZI 6 MILLION!!!

For supposed atheists (no Gods, no masters), these “anti-racist” posers sure do hold judaism and the jews as holier cows than Christianity and Islam.

One of these scenesters, “Metal Chris”, was quoted by the Washington Post.

It pissed me off. I do a lot for promoting metal and DIY scenes, and to have racist bands take advantage of that is offensive to me.

Chris then goes on to quote the statement made by Shagrath over 20 years ago about “slitting the throat of black people“.

Of course, “anti-racists” like him won’t say a word about the very mainstream artists holding fundraisers for the Israeli army to drop white phosphorus on Palestinian children – he only wants to talk about statements made by Shagrath in 1995.

Can they make it even more obvious that their “anti-racism” is only ever directed at White people?

Anti-racist = anti-White.
