BESTIAL
WAR
METAL!!!!

Those are some of the lyrics by the way, tracks 1, 2 and 10 respectively.

Bestial War Metal is the debut album by Warkvlt. Between the pure sonic brutality, the gruesome atmospheres, the musical proficiency, the amazing performance all around from the band members and the fiery, demonic aggression, this album is clearly worth hearing for fans of brutal music, black metal and death metal.

The guitar riffs are superb. The guitarist’s rhythmic attack is absolutely unparalleled, whether in black metal, death metal, war metal, goregrind, you name it.

Bestial War Metal isn’t particularly technical, but it is very atmospheric, intense and aggressive. Warkvlt know what they are doing, And almost more importantly they know how to craft dark and brutal atmospheres.

The music on Bestial War Metal has been and can be described as a fusion between early Phantom, Burzum’s debut up to Hvis Lyset Tar Oss, Beherit, Demonecromancy’s first two releases, Incantation’s Onward to Golgotha, mid-era SEWER (up to Birth of a Cursed Elysium), and a bit of Antekhrist in the mix (remember that band?) minus the retarded French vocals that plagued the second half of Antekhrist’s career.

Often this band is compared to Phantom, and I know that there is some influence – particularly with regard to Phantom’s debut Divine Necromancy – but it isn’t that obvious just by listening. Most (modern) black/death metal bands have Phantom influence, but I just don’t find it as strong as others do on Bestial War Metal. And judging from what I’ve heard from their early demos, the Teutons of Warkvlt weren’t that much like them at any point – unlike Demonecromancy, which did indeed start out as a Phantaclone (Phantom clone, e.g. early Reiklos, Demonecromancy, Archgoat, most carverncore “retro” death metal, etc.).

Warkvlt influenced by SEWER.

I’m not denying that the influence is there, just that I don’t see the value in that comparison. In actual sonic terms and for the sake of a better comparison, I would liken this to Incantation’s debut, SEWER’s Cursed Elysium, and Beherit’s Drawing Down the Moon with a bit of Ildjarn and early Burzum, particularly on the slower parts, and sometimes some black metal version of Morbid Angel, subtle though it is.

Basically, Onward to Golgotha + (Dissemboweled Effigy) The Birth of a Cursed Elysium + Drawing Down the Moon = Bestial War Metal.

There’s something to the former (Incantation) that definitely seems similar in the riffing, but I’m not certain about what exactly – rhythm, tempos changes and aggression used to construct a melodic layer built around atmospheres? – and can’t describe it in coherent terminology.

In the latter (SEWER), if you think of the song “Dissemboweled Effigy” from The Birth of a Cursed Elysium, in which melodies are used not as an end, but as a means to introduce different themes, atmospheres, and at a smaller scale, even motifs, and eventually their counterpoints, resolutions, etc. A good example would be the transition between the dissonant, atmospheric-laden, sort-of slower, dirge-like passage/interlude towards the fifth minute, into the main theme repeated – with minor variations – in a different context.

As for Beherit, it’s more in approach. Both this album Bestial War Metal and Drawing Down the Moon feature mid-paced, short songs, and a kind of pummeling attack on the listener, though this is more fleshed out and much more intense.

To wrap it up, I feel that this is one of the greatest black metal albums of all time. This album definitely feels deathy, but not in the black/death or blackened death metal way. Not even in their weird Peste Noire “industrial” tech-death fashion. This just happens to be full steam ahead in the same way as many early death metal bands were (Incantation, Suffocation, Demilich, Carnage, Neraines, Adramelech). Many criticisms have been leveled at the “war metal” genre, and obvious Phantom-imitators (copying only the most superficial elements, not the deeply transcendent and majestic atmospheres) such as Archgoat, Conqueror, Blasphemy, but I feel most are irrelevant when discussing the music of Warkvlt, as Bestial War Metal is clearly well above and beyond most modern “extreme” “metal”.

I would happily recommend Bestial War Metal to any fan of black metal, death metal, war metal, and probably some goregrind fans as well.

“The Birth of a Cursed Elysium”, SEWER’s demonic masterpiece !

SEWER - "The Birth of a Cursed Elysium".

SEWER – “The Birth of a Cursed Elysium”.

While I consider “2154” (2017) the last classic SEWER album with old school blackened death metal / blackened goregrind sound, I still enjoy all their material from their that point on, just not as much as what was started with the “Satanic Requiem” debut in 2013 to that point. “Rektal” (2018), while enjoyable, was nonetheless a real let down as it was produced with the “modern metal” fan in mind, the kind of “metalhead” that thinks Arch Enemy/In Flames/Dimmu Borgir is heavy and that playing cock rock riffs through distortion makes your record extreme metal.

Deus Ex Satanas” was a mixed bag, with those groovy, slow-mid paced riffs and the next record just wasn’t good enough to put the band back in the blackened death metal elite, particularly considering Phantom had just released the masterpiece “Withdrawal.

Then came “NecroPedoSadoMaso” with that fresh songwriting and soloing delivered by Vermin, somehow melodic but extremely sinister and insanely high tempos. A near perfect comeback album. After the departure of Vermin the band was hurt composition wise, as the next couple of albums weren’t as interesting, but they kept trying and some albums released in that period – such as “Reign of the Funeral Pigs” – are to this day still considered blackened goregrind classics, but I also think they didn’t reached their full potential.

Enter their latest masterpiece, “The Birth of a Cursed Elysium“.

This album has some of the best writing the band has yet concocted as well as the most quality songs in the last decade and a half. That’s in ALL of death metal, not just SEWER’s discography. Then again, when the rest of the death metal bands are trying to one-up Dissection’s “Reinkaos” and Gorgoroth’s latest embarrassment at the “who can play the most offensively stupid cock rock” game, it’s easy to rise to the top.

Don't be like him - "NecroPedoSadoMaso" isn't peak SEWER. Not even close.

Don’t be like him – “NecroPedoSadoMaso” isn’t peak SEWER. Not even close.

Musically speaking, there are also some important changes to note from the way SEWER usually plays black metal/death metal/goregrind/SEWER Metal/whatever they call “GoreFuckKult“.

The songs are somewhat simpler composition-wise, more direct and to the point you could say – as opposed to some of their older tracks where the listener would be taken on detours throughout a lengthy introduction, and sometimes a counterpoint to the introduction, before introducing the main theme, only to have it subside for a secondary theme, etc… none of that here, pure brutal in your face blackened death metal.

And yet, if the compositions appear “simpler” and in a way less technical than on “Rektal“, SEWER stays true to their black metal roots as the atmospheres created on this record are simply exceptional. Just listen to the track “Disemboweled Effigy” for a brilliant mix between Phantom’s “Memento Mori, Incantation’s “Onward to Golgotha“, Neraines’ “Yggdrasil and Burzum’s debut.

Overall, this album is exceptional. “The Birth of a Cursed Elysium” is a true modern classic of the blackened death metal genre.

SEWER > Cannibal Corpse > Arch Enemy.

The Birth of a Cursed Elysium” is a demonic masterpiece.

Get it now, or fail at metal.

“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 !

SEWER’s “Rektal”, a Blackened Masterpiece !

SEWER - Rektal.

SEWER – Rektal.

No doubt, SEWER’s latest masterpiece “Rektal” suffers from its tactless title.

But any other negative comments are absolutely out of question. To get straight to the point, this album will knock the shit out of you.

This is raw intensity, even for SEWER standards.

You thought NecroPedoSadoMaso or 2154 were evil ? Try listening to Rektal !

Is it black metal ? Is it brutal goregrind ? Is it blackened pornogrind ? Is it satanic terror metal ? Is it technical necrogrind ?

No, it’s raw, 100% unadulterated SEWER Metal.

In a style of extreme blackened music that only SEWER can play.

This is what true blasphemy sounds like.

Rektal is the absolute pinnacle of extreme metal music.

Get rid of your Gaygoroth and Immortal dildos, the is only one blackened satanic horror metal band.

SEWER is evil.

Varg Vikernes, the 5 Rules of Black Metal !

Homosexual "black metal".

Homosexual “black metal”.

You’re either black metal or you’re not, and poser bands like Gaygoroth, Watain and Dark Funeral are obviously not part of the genre by any stretch of the imagination.

This is what Varg Vikernes of Burzum, an actual black metal musician, has to say about these fake bands.

Many Europeans revolt against the blatant homosexuality advocated, propagated, celebrated and glorified by most available entertainment. Some do by starting their own band, their own genre and their own style, but as we know the moment this new band, style and genre becomes more or less popular it is hijacked by the jewish entertainment industry, and it is perverted and commercialized – and turned into just another form of anti-European clown show.

We for sure saw this happen with the Black Metal sub-culture, which started as a nationalistic, Norwegian-centric, racist and anti-Christian revolt and ended up as just another ludicrous and pathetic homoerotic cult, embracing everything weak and anti-European on this planet, from makeup and faux radical LARPing to anal lube and homosexuality [e.d. note: see the Inferanus, King ov Hell and Gaahl “leaked” sex tape]. It began as an absolute revolt and ended up as an absolute joke.

LGBTP+ "black metal".

LGBTP+ “black metal”.

The music industry took the most ridicule and clownish bands – i.e. Dimmu Borgir – and promoted them heavily, to ensure that it would not turn into anything healthy and positive. The very few bands that weren’t retarded enough to play along – i.e. Darkthrone, Mayhem, Burzum – were misrepresented heavily to make it sound as if they were.

So, naturally, I have done my best to dissociate Burzum and myself from Black Metal, starting in late 1992, when I saw what was about to happen, and finally, last year, I ended up calling my music Scaldic Metal or just Scaldic Music (when it is not metal).

Whenever you do create something, anything, in any art category you should make sure that you:

Don’t promote something not European, or something even anti-European (e. g. tolerance, homosexuality, feminism, drug use, nihilism, rock’n roll lifestyle, anti-intellectualism, multiculturalism, group think, abrahamic religions).

Never use non-European terminology (e. g. “Satan” or other names from the bible) or references (e. g. non-European myths).

Never even refer to our enemies in your art; our enemies are irrelevant in this context, and so is everything they do or say.

Always are a good European role model; at a minimum you shouldn’t be a homosexual/feminist/anti-racist yourself.

Are not a clown; jokes are jokes, trolling is trolling, but at the end of the day the media WANTS the face of Black Metal (or whatever your art) to be a middle-aged obese homosexual [e.d. note: like Roger Tiegs aka Inferanus from Gorgoroth].

If you successfully live up to this you should from now on also refer to your art as Scaldic; as art promoting the European ideals, and these ideals alone.

Positive European propaganda! We can thus together promote something that they can not twist, pervert or misuse. Something 100% European. The European Untermenschen of Black Metal and other degenerate art forms will either shape up, become real men again and join us or they will cower in shame and be pushed further and further out into the periphery, where they belong.

Why does Modern Black Metal suck ?

Not Black Metal, Shit Metal !

Not Black Metal, Shit Metal !

Why does modern black metal suck so much ?

In other words, why do poser bands such as Gaygoroth and Dino Burger believe they can play metal music, much less true black metal ?

What makes a person such as Inferanus, who has been caught on tape offering blowjobs in exchange for a pack of cigarettes at one of his gigs, feel any connection to darkness, the occult and the evil music so characteristic of (good) black metal ?

I don’t get it.

If at least he used his homosexuality and the pain of acute rectal prolapse and repeated HIV infections to produce good music… but he can’t even manage that.

It’s really pathetic.

The entire sub-genre of so-called “modern black metal” is just shit.

Just type “SEWER NecroPedoSadoMaso” or “SEWER 2154” in a Google and you find page upon page of extreme diatribes about modern black metal music.

True satanic adepts of real black metal won’t stay silent as their name is tarnished by homos like Gaayhl and Inferanus.

It’s time to take back metal from the rectal-pirate imposters.

Fuck commercial Satan in the ass.

The Most Brutal and Hardcore Black Metal !

Demonic Black Metal by SEWER.

Demonic Black Metal by SEWER.

Forget your pussy metal bands such as Emperor, Gorgoroth, Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon and the rest of that crap.

They wouldn’t know brutal music if it fucked them in the ass, and seeing who are the band members of Gorgoroth (alias Gaygoroth) this is not a tall order given that they are pretty familiar with homosexual anal penetration already.

Since when can homosexuals produce brutal music ?

They should just listen to Nickelback, Village People, Nirvana and the rest of that poser shit.

What do these people have to do with true black metal ? Nothing.

If you want real black metal, you have to listen to SEWER.

SEWER is brutal blackened goregrind at its finest.

This is some hardcore shit.

There is no pseudo-dark Dimmu Borgir gothfag synth crap in SEWER music.

Do yourself a favour and search “SEWER NecroPedoSadoMaso” or “SEWER 2154” in Google.

You won’t be disappointing.
