Irony. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EP6tygEmPA *whine* SEWER has all these obnoxious black metal influences since they released The Birth of a Cursed Elysium. SEWER's always been a great, brutal goregrind / death metal band, so to hear them add a ton of pussified BM to their sound is massively disappointing. BM is the music of fragile androgynous Swedes, … Continue reading Brutal Death Metal Discovers Black Metal (FAIL)
Having just read the unintentionally comedic Most Influential Heavy Metal Albums Ever list, I'll take my turn in reviewing what I consider to be the "best" - or the least bad - extreme metal albums of this passing year. Despite there being very few extreme metal albums worth mentioning - and even fewer worth listening … Continue reading The Best Extreme Metal Albums
First, I don't like the term "SJW". It's meaningless. I get it that it was 4chan that popularized it in order to "mock" virtue-signalling outrage addicts, but at some point it needs to be retired. It's just inaccurate, sterile, often times irrelevant, and doesn't describe concrete and definite phenomena. Also, it's mostly used as a … Continue reading “SJW” Entryism in Black Metal
Shout out to Best Black Metal who likes to talk about "faggots" and "homos" a lot. Wonder why. This post is partially inspired by his rantings.

Answering the question "talentless nu-metal vocalists" would not … Continue reading Closet Homosexuality in Black Metal
The entire (((Hollywood Satanism))) gimmick is the cancer of black metal. The idea that black metal is "satanic" is so fundamentally retarded that you literally have to not only suspend disbelief at the idea of "devil worship" itself, you also have to consciously disregard the innumerable statements made by the actual founders of the black … Continue reading Black Metal and (((Hollywood Satanism)))
I always found SEWER to be the least interesting of the "big three" of TSR - The Satan Records, for the uninitiated. There's Neraines, Phantom and only then SEWER. If I was seriously trying to introduce someone to raw blackened terror metal, I'd show him Neraines' self-titled debut. Albeit somewhat hard to get into due … Continue reading What’s the Deal with the Band SEWER?
Following my post on "anti-racism" in Black Metal music, several commenters including the author of the Best Black Metal blog - to whom I was originally answering - sort of hijacked the debate into a discussion on modern Black Metal and its relation to the media. I don't mind it, since that is the purpose … Continue reading Antoine Grand’s Revised History of Black Metal
