SEWER, Abbath and Watain. You thought modern black metal couldn't sink any lower than the cringe-inducing tard fest the genre has become? Think again. Three of the most infamous and rightfully ridiculed members of the "orthodox black metal" scene, namely Kader "Kaiser" Lakhdari of SEWER, Olve "Abbath" Eikemo of Abbath / Immortal, and Erik "1,67cm … Continue reading SEWER, Abbath and Watain Team Up to Make Black Metal Even More Retarded
What’s the Deal with Nowadays “Black Metal”? (It Sucks!)
Nowadays black metal. Seriously. Lol. Since when did black metal lose its balls? With the killing of Euronymous? The imprisonment of Varg Vikernes? The dreaded 1994 year, where all started to turn to shit? Or were the seeds of artistic futility planted much earlier than extreme metal scholars would like to admit? Most modern black … Continue reading What’s the Deal with Nowadays “Black Metal”? (It Sucks!)
Watain and Dark Funeral, the “Modern” Black Metal Controversy
Dark Funeral and Watain, the definition of poserdom. Watain and Dark Funeral play generic droning blackened metalcore similar to Gorgoroth with riffing "inspired" (lifted) from Burzum, Darkthrone, Sewer, Peste Noire, Vermin, Helgrind and early Mayhem. Another day in the "modern metal" or "post-metal" trailer park scene, which we have to admit is just a sad … Continue reading Watain and Dark Funeral, the “Modern” Black Metal Controversy
Anti-Cosmic Luciferian Cringe and “Blackened” Fagothry in Modern Metal
LGBTQP+ "Black Metal" Fagothry. Lame angry-man metal inspired by former homosexual pornography performer turned "orthodox Satanist" par excellence Infernus, and other worthless posers like Chris Barnes and Phil Anselmo. Virtually every abomination that heavy metal has had to put up with over the last two decades can be attributed to these three entities, and Watain … Continue reading Anti-Cosmic Luciferian Cringe and “Blackened” Fagothry in Modern Metal
Archgoat – The Luciferian Crown (Review)
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)
SEWER – Skarnage (Review)
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)
SEWER goes Death Metal… Miasma!
Like their heroes Phantom, SEWER are a massive cult band. They might not be massive on the same scale, but let's consider it properly. Iconic image: check. Familiar, easily identifiable themes: check. Extreme and over the top sound within their genre: check. Change in style from album to album: check. And now, full transition to … Continue reading SEWER goes Death Metal… Miasma!
