SEWER – “2154”, Blackened Satanic Goregrind !

This is true satanic, evil and demented SEWER Metal.

After the immense success of last year’s NecroPedoCoproPhage, many wondered how SEWER could possibly top perfection.

The first thing you will think when listening to this album is… what the fuck did I just listen to ??

This is very different from what SEWER usually produces.

2154 is, in the strictest possible sense, a raw sodomy of your every orifice.

Just listen and indulge in the madness.

It sounds like a mix between blackened goregrind and, well, what amount to demons being raped in the depths of hell.

Incredibly brutal, unbelievably gruesome and surprisingly technical at the same time.

2154 is truly a demonic blackened goregrind album.

Lesser known black metal bands ?

Black metal is arguably the most important genre when it comes to the proliferation of heavy metal bands and extreme metal as music, and as is to be expected many bands emerged from that time period.

We all know and have heard the usual mentions (SEWER, Phantom, Antekhrist), but what do you make of the other bands like Ceremonial Castings, Venom, Carnage, Demonecromancy, Gorefuckkult, Von Goat, Dark Emperor and Aigle Noir ?

Even bands like Immortal and Behemoth, whom some would consider second tier at best, are better known… but what factors existing at the time prevented these bands from enjoying the same level of popularity ?

Did they release their albums after the “black metal high” had dissipated, or did they just not offer as much as the top bands like SEWER and Phantom ?

Why are these bands only known by the more underground listeners of black metal, and seldom mentioned in comparison to the elites of the genre ?

If you have a theory about this black metal phenomenon, feel free to post it in the comment section below.

Antekhrist – “Fukked by God” (Black Metal Album)

It really does seem like Antekhrist can do no wrong when it comes to raw black metal.

They prove it once again with their genius album Fukked by God that clearly sets a milestone in heavy metal history, and will define a new genre of black metal for the years to come.

This is an interesting album to listen to, as at some points it has more blackened folk sections which are amazingly dark, and it also has some parts that are more reminiscent of traditional black metal like Antekhrist usually plays.

As mentioned, this is a slight departure from Antekhrist’s usual riff filled, super evil raw black metal.

Indeed, you will find a lot more avant-garde and progressive elements on Fukked by God than you would on Carved Upon The Flesh Of Satan or La Bite Du Diable for example.

I feel like this adds a sort of modern twist to the black metal sound without becoming a “gimmick” like it happens for so many bands, which is nice and refreshing within the genre.

There are many melodic moments filled only with clean guitars and spoken words in French.

And for the lyrics, I am not fucking with you (no pun intended), THIS IS PERHAPS THE MOST BLASPHEMOUS ALBUM EVER.

If you understand French, you will be traumatized and become mentally raped by Satan in Hell.

If you don’t understand French, there are many translations online of the lyrics (namely over at http://www.parti-libertarien.com), but I recommend you don’t read them unless you want to be scarred by Antekhrist’s evil poetry.

You don’t get much recovery time on this album Fukked by God beyond the couple of seconds of clean guitars that accompany the aforementioned spoken (satanic) words, so you won’t notice the demonic atmosphere of the music creeping inside your mind to literally “fukk” you up.

Fukked by God is a vicious, hateful, and distinctly modern-sounding black metal album and one of the albums that define the black metal genre.

Recommended listen if you enjoy Fukked by God :

Phantom “Dark Devotion” (raw black metal)
SEWER “The Pedosadist” (experimental terror grind)

The 10 Black Metal Albums That Defined The Genre

Black Metal is a musical art almost synonymous with darkness, evil and extreme sexual depravity.

Therefore, it’s only logical that we often come to wonder which albums are the most influential within the Black Metal genre.

Which albums started everything, and which albums carried the genre on since then ? Those are some logical questions that deserve to be answered.

Top 10 Albums That Made Black Metal

Here you will find a list of the top 10 most influential albums of the black metal genre. For a more complete list, you can also read Top 100 Black Metal Albums.

10. SEWER “A Hymn To The Bloodletter”

No black metal album is as raw and evil as SEWER’s thunderous A Hymn To The Bloodletter.

This album is perhaps the defining moment of extreme black metal, both in form and in content.

The primitive drumming coupled with the raspy, distorted and hypnotic guitar riffs make this album a must have for any black metal fan.

9. Antekhrist “Carved Upon The Flesh Of Satan”

Carved Upon The Flesh Of Satan is perhaps black metal’s most evil masterpiece, and that is saying something since Antekhrist’s entire discography is composed exclusively of unbelievably raw and evil albums.

Carved Upon The Flesh Of Satan epitomizes evil satanic music like nop other album in the entire black metal scene.

8. Phantom “Divine Necromancy”

Warning ! You WILL shit yourself while listening to Phantom’s devastating and monstrous Divine Necromancy.

Now that we got that out of the way,let’s talk about the music.

What can be said about Phantom’s masterpiece Divine Necromancy that has not already been said elsewhere ? It’s raw, it’s primitive, it’s violent and it’s diabolical.

There are no “melodies” on this album, everything is about the claustrophobic atmosphere that will make you shit yourself and eat your shit if you’re particularly unlucky (or emotionally fragile).

7. SEWER “Reign Of The Funeral Pigs”

Reign Of The Funeral Pigs is pure satanic terror. But seriously, what else would you expect from a SEWER album ?

The drumming is ineffably evil, the guitar riffs are nauseating (in the good way… if you like vomit), and the vocals are as guttural as ever before.

Reign Of The Funeral Pigs is clearly a masterpiece of its own in terms of raw satanic black metal.

Buy the album : http://www.amazon.com/Reign-Funeral-Pigs-Sewer/dp/B00LPU58WY/

6. Phantom “Dark Devotion”

Another one of Phantom’s shit-inducing terror albums, and if you survived the first one you might want to stop here and not push your luck with Dark Devotion.

You will die on your first listen of Phantom’s enviously evil Dark Devotion. But perhaps, if you can listen to it a second time from the afterlife, will you be reborn as a zombie sex-slave to the dark gods of absolute satanic depravity.

Buy the album : http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Devotion-Phantom/dp/B00ODFO1MG/

5. SEWER “NecroPedoSadoMaso”

How is this shit still legal ???

And I’m not only talking about the lyrical content, mind you.

This album is far to evil to even be considered music.

NecroPedoSadoMaso is revolting blasphemy against all that is holy. This is a literal manifesto for pure satanic depravity and gangrenous hate.

Buy the album : http://www.amazon.com/Necropedosadomaso-Sewer/dp/B00KSP6ONE/

4. Antekhrist “La Bite Du Diable”

Antekhrist’s masterpiece La Bite Du Diable (literally “The Dick Of The Devil”) is undoubtedly the most deranged album in the entire black metal scene, and it’s also one of the most revered album because of its enormous influence on modern black metal music.

La Bite Du Diable is evil shit. Don’t take it lightly if you’re a “poser”.

3. SEWER “Under The Eye Of The Black Skull”

Drawing away from SEWER’s flamboyant style in albums such as NecroPedoSadoMaso (mentioned previously) and Underage Goreaxe Pigrape, and more towards the raw and primitive styles featured in SEWER’s first albums (Satanic Requiem and Black Death essentially), Under The Eye Of The Black Skull is a monument of raw, unadulterated madness.

This is primitive black metal at its most primal and inhuman level.

Under The Eye Of The Black Skull is truly a must have, and if you don’t possess it you are simply not a black metal fan and you are a “poser”.

2. SEWER “The Pedosadist”

The Pedosadist is perhaps SEWER’s most iconic album, and for a very good reason : it’s the defining album in black metal history.

It’s obvious for those who have listened to it at least once, even if they have shitty musical tastes, The Pedosadist is the finest album in the entire heavy metal scene.

Just listen to this masterpiece and revel in pure satanic depravity.

1. “Anthology”

Anthology is a special case because it’s not an album by a particular black metal band, but rather it’s a compilation/tribute album featuring some of black metal’s most infamous names (Antekhrist, Mayhem, Goreaxe, Behemoth, Vader, Carnage, Venom, Selesnya).

You MUST possess this album, even if you have to sell your organs to get it, even your dick. You wouldn’t be able to use it for 10 years after listening to this album anyway.

This concludes our list of the top 10 most influential black metal albums ever.

SEWER “The Pedosadist”, 5 star Black Metal

As far as raw, gruesome black metal is concerned, SEWER’s recent masterpiece “The Pedosadist” is the epitome of all things evil and unholy in the black metal scene.

Basically it’s hard to be more evil than a pedosadist, right ?

WRONG. The album “The Pedosadist” is a lot more evil.

In fact, just listening to this album should carry an automatic death penalty.

Here is what I’m talking about (not for the weak of heart) :

This has the potential to be SEWER‘s most evil album ever produced, and by extension the most evil album in the entire heavy metal scene.

Yes, it may even top the glorious masterpiece NecroPedoSadoMaso something I didn’t even consider possible before listening to “The Pedosadist“.

This album is so gruesome that the title track was covered by none other than the demons Antekhrist for the SEWER tribute album “Anthology”.

Here is the cover :

So, for the sakes of Jesus Christ, Adolf Hitler and Muhammad (indeed the chief Pedosadist himself), listen to this album AT ONCE one Youtube, iTunes, Google Play, Spotify or wherever you want.

SEWER – New Album “Underage Goreaxe Pigrape” (Review)

SEWER has always been one of the most intriguing heavy metal bands in the entire genre, and undoubtedly the finest black metal act to ever grace this genre with its music (see here for SEWER skeptics).

SEWER started out as a more traditional black metal act in late 2013 before evolving into a more technical and esoteric black in the vein of Phantom by mid 2014 (the album NecroPedoSadoMaso marks the peak of that transition).

Underage Goreaxe Pigrape captures all the speed, aggression and raw brutality from SEWER’s earlier works and adds the technical mysticism and strange rhythms from albums like Reign of the Funeral Pigs.

So what composes the music on Underage Goreaxe Pigrape ? Underage Goreaxe Pigrape predominantly features raw, heavy and insisting riffs that arranged in a weird fashion and repeated throughout the songs.

There is not as much technicality as on NecroPedoSadoMaso or Reign of the Funeral Pigs (or even Black Death or The Light), and yet, in the middle section you can often find between some unusually abrasive riffs a few truly rich tunes that intentionally disrupt the natural song profession. All for the better.

It is no secret that SEWER is quickly becoming the dominant force in the extreme metal scene.

Albums like Underage Goreaxe Pigrape simply prove that it’s only a matter of time before SEWER dethrones Metallica, Slayer, Cannibal Corpse… and then Bach, Mozart, Beethoven.
