Where titanic ruins dream their endless dreams…

Cold winds are blowing. The breath of Boreas is sweeping the North as Summer descends deeper towards the long death of winter. What better way to embrace the coming of Autumn than a descent into the frigid intolerance of Triumph Genus,
the nightmarish hellscape of Temple Nightside, or the hedge-warlock obscurity of Hädanfärd?

  1. Playlist:

    Sun’s Blood – Obscuration of Zos
    Sulphurous – Demo XII
    Coprofagi – Scathalogy
    Darklord – …By Force of Sacred Magic Rite… (1994 Aussie demo – which i believe was a bit of an inspiration bands like Portal, Abyssal, and maybe Temple Nightside? ) Very similar feel and vein

  2. Ah yes, Graves of the Archangels, crushing album! I´ll have to put that on today´s list.

    Azaghal – Nemesis
    Azaghal – Omega
    Blood of Kingu – Sun in the House of Scorpio
    Blood of Kingu – De Occulta Philosophia
    Dordeduh – Dar De Duh
    Drudkh – Eternal Turn of the Wheel
    Arckanum – Fenris Kindir
    Darkspace – I
    Celtic Frost – Monotheist
    Buried at Sea – Ghost
    Liars – They Were Wrong So We Drowned (and now playing: WIXIW)
    Swans – The Seer. This is amazing, defies explanantion, MUST BE HEARD by everyone here! Seriously, most impressive thing I’ve heard in a long time.

  3. I have had the Seer from some time. You are right!

  4. Now there is one of a few bands I would really want to see live, Swans. Heard it is mesmerizing.

  5. Timeless Necrotears – any and all I can find of this strange band
    Voices – From the Human Forest Create a Fugue of Imaginary Rain (absolutely killer from Akercocke members)
    Fear Factory – Obsolete ( a little walk down memory lane)
    Forest Swords – Engravings (their best yet)
    !T.O.O.H! – Democratic Solution (a goth-folk tech-grind hybrid mixed and maybe performed by aliens)
    Fehlfarben – Monarchie und Alltag (essential West German post-punk)
    Steve Halpern – Chakra Suite (helps calm me down a bit)
    Panta Rei Panta Rei (obscure 70’s psychedelic/progressive freak-rock from Sweden)

  6. Fear Factory – Obsolete ( a little walk down memory lane) — yep, part of my past as well, man. “Shock” will always destroy \m/

  7. AZAGHAL! Superior Finnish Black Metal. I’ve raided Marty’s distro for every album of theirs he had. Great, memorable songwriting, intelligible but still appropriately harsh vocals, classic metal moments … yet still pure, unadulterated BM. Fuck and yes. \m/

  8. Yes, Azaghal the Almighty. Should receive more praise for they really are that fucking great! These guys know their RIFFS (instead of those endless tremoloes) and yes, they understand the craftmanship it takes to make a song that not only pummels but also lingers in the subconscious. Good to see you agree. And as it happens I also purchased most of my Azaghals from Marty.

    On a different note… Mr. Postman just made me a very happy man by delivering both albums by The God Machine to my doorstep. Had them on tape, lost ’em long ago, ordered them online a while ago and now I can cherish these fucking godly albums once again. One Last Laugh in a Place of Dying should, just like The Seer, be heard by every metal head that can handle non-metal. Majestic sadness!

  9. Alright, tell me what Azaghal album i should start with. you both have given rise to some serious curiosity now.

  10. I’d say start with Omega then work your way up, though I think Mr. Rytkonen would recommend beginning with their much raw-er 2004 effort Perkoleen Luoma

  11. Their last three releases on Moribund (Nemesis, Teraphim and Omega) are all high quality. I’d start with Nemesis, their latest. It’ll only take about one minute into the opening track to know if you dig it or not. If you do, skip to Hail the Whore, and you’re sold. Fistpounding black metal, evil as fucking black filth. Should be bigger than Watain. \m/

  12. will do. thanks

  13. If anyone here really likes the new Arckanum album like I do, I have ripped a version from vinyl to wave and mp3 that cuts out all the noise fluff from the album (the filler part). Interestingly, it is only 26 minutes long and sounds to me now like an excellent album. I have the Necromantia vinyl bonus too if you want it. Can dropbox it or mediafire to you. Please own a copy first if you request this. Don’t want to be sharing free shit here.

  14. That “noise fluff” is what Shamaatae intends to be on the album, as a part of the whole. It’s been a defining element of the Arckanum sound for a long time. It’s fine if you don’t like it but as far as I’m concerned you’re compromising a work of art by leaving it out on purpose. Then why even bother buying the vinyl? You can simply download the songs without the “fluff”. Oh, legally of course. (now where’s that sarcastic wink?)

  15. Eh, its fluff and it doesn’t contribute anything at all to the album as far as i am concerned. This particular album sounded as if he added it to make the album a full lenght, and thats it. It sounds way stronger without it. the flow of the album is not good the way he did it. Also, what he did prior is entirely irrelevant. The abridged version is where its at Mr. Pious. hehe.

  16. why buy the vinyl? cause it sounds better, i collect and it has the necormantia cover. you cannot download the songs with out the fluff cause they are intertwined mr. smarty pants.

  17. Sure dude. Enjoy your greatest hits compilation eh?

  18. You are looking for a little fight, aren’t ya? Well, I won’t have any of that tomfoolery today Sir. My kind offer to share something still stands. And hey, if you think it is a bad idea, by all means, just ignore it. That was some serious self restraint there.

  19. Dear sir, I just think your opinion on Fenris Kindir plus the way you “improved” it are ridiculous. Somehow I find it offensive to a musician I highly respect. Hence my reaction. Not to pick a fight. Mr Pious. Mr Smarty Pants. Sjeeesh…

  20. Fuck off ya holier than thou cunt. I am glad you are offended. Go fuck yourself ya danish douche or dutch fuck, whatever you are. How about that?

  21. I broke the truce! hahahah

  22. Time to bring in Rodney King again hehehehe…

  23. On a different note, my recent obsession with 70’s era judas priest ran me into the dream deciever documentary on the youtube. Of course I was familar with the lawsuit and all against Priest, but never saw this back in the 90’s. it was really in depth with interviews with the families and band, and court room cross examination. A lot of denial from the parents as to why theses kids had shitty lives and tried to kill themselves.

    Check it out if you haven’t, it’s just under an hour.
