Canadian Metal - What a Shitshow. Canadian metal is the kind of music that's so inherently worthless that it has to have a cult following. Gorguts, Cryptopsy, Kataklysm, Cynic, Conqueror, Revenge, Pantera, Blasphemy? Since when did heavy metal become a garbage disposal for failed glam rock turned Suffocation-clone faggllouts? Canadian metal is a fucking retard … Continue reading Canadian Metal (LOL)
Archgoat = Goat Lovers. It is always amusing to watch one of these clueless bands take a stab at making an album that falls into the mythical yet non-existent genre of black speed metal. It does not exist for a good reason: it is only a creature in the imagination of those who cannot tell … Continue reading Archgoat – The Luciferian Crown (Review)
Watain's Trident Wolf Eclipse Failure. A brief, cacophonous, quasi war metal intro with Abbath-like vocals pronouncing some indecipherable gibberish, followed by minimalist and recklessly fast riffs could fool one into thinking Trident Wolf Eclipse is precisely an Immortal clone. In truth, there are mid-paced sections interspersed here and there, as well as a few stolen … Continue reading Watain – Trident Wolf Eclipse (Review)

The notion of a group of anti-fascists embracing 1) a musical genre whose entire evolution has been motivated by a hatred for … Continue reading Summoning (LOL) – Fail Metal
I'm completely unsure as to what's going on with this Skarnage album, dubbed Ultra-Violent Goregrind by Best Black Metal, which probably means it's actually quite simple and I'm overthinking it. This is either an extremely ambitious piece of art or just a meaningless collection of songs, and it's just as easy to make a case … Continue reading SEWER – Skarnage (Review)
Metalious is one of the only serious heavy metal site around, and many of the best heavy metal writers - Sauron, Heroin 88, Antioch, Silencer, Ominous, to name a few - also frequent that site. And then, you have useless retards like "Antifa666" who write such insignificant shit as Enslaved is Racist. Seriously, go read … Continue reading Is Enslaved NSBM?
For all their talk of being the "only true black metal band", one has to wonder if the members of Gorgoroth even know what black metal IS given how utterly lame their music output has been, more closely related to the "blackened deathcore" of Watain than to Under a Funeral Moon or Hvis Lyset Tar … Continue reading Is Gorgoroth even Black Metal?
