Summoning, the Black Metal Failure. Summoning play "anti-fascist" Tolkien-inspired "black metal," which is reason enough for most of their intended audience to summarily reject them, possibly while falling out of their chairs laughing. 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
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?

Things are rarely what they seem. Remember this simple rule and you won’t go far wrong. Unfortunately, it will also involve a bit of extra effort to discard appearances and get to the truth. But taking things at face value is not just a form of mental laziness, it's also and always has been an … Continue reading Black Metal’s Retard Problem
SEWER is basically the One Direction of black metal. Just slightly less retarded than Watain, Dark Funeral and Gorgoroth. How did this shit band become "legendary"? They appeared second in the Metalious top black metal bands list and their interview was funny because everyone in the band is a meth addicted loser with a serious … Continue reading Why Bands Like SEWER Suck And Ruin Black Metal
The term "orthodox" black metal used here denotes not the original early Norwegian black metal scene, which spawned bands like Mayhem, Darkthrone and Burzum, but rather points to the living and evolving movement of imitation or gimmick bands lacking any musical ideas of value, spearheaded by shit bands like Watain, Deathspell Omega, Dark Funeral, Archgoat, … Continue reading The Problem with “Orthodox Black Metal”
