Mourners of faded aspirations upon the colossal halls of rotten tragic shadows

Even a vomiting child at dinner and a last second scramble to turn zero writing submission (by yours truly), into literary gold in 30 minutes cannot stop the Worm machine as we strive to meet our deadlines every week. I know… “Literary Gold” is a stretch on all fronts, but in order to amuse myself when doing these intros, one tends to fantasize and let their secret desires slip once in a while. So here’s 4 new reviews to satiate you all until we strike again next week. I know Jim is working on an interview and I may have something in the works as well, along with year end lists. So until we meet again, keep the discussions coming. We love to hear about what’s in rotation on your stereo and will be equally interested to hear what rocked your world this past year.

Before we leave you to it, I’m going to take this moment to spam you a little bit which is something that I tend to shy away from on this site.

Some of you may know that I run Bindrune Recordings (Waldgeflüster – Meine Fesseln CD Pre-Order now happening!), but Jim and I have also started a new, sub-label of Bindrune Called Eihwaz Recordings. Our first release, Vex – Memorious 2LP is now available, turned out great, and would be a fine addition to your collection as it is limited to 250 copies and is a fine statement of melodic and unique death metal.

There… end rant. See you next week! -Marty

  1. Marty is going to become insufferable after he sees my playlist, but I must admit, I am a full Summoning Convert now (the Christmas/holiday season put me open my eyes to the wonderfully cheesey keyboards, alas, I totally get Summoning now!)

    1. Summoning – Minas Morgul
    2. Summoning – Dol Guldur
    3. Nar Mattaru – Enuma Elish
    4. Vex – Memorious LP (excellent Crust Melodic Death Metal! Highly Recommended)

    6. Divine Eve/ Vex Split

  2. Gracie: I’d go with you, but…
    Jack Burton: I know, there’s a problem with your face.

    John Carpenter is fucking awesome.
    I dig that slightly-odd guitar sound on the Nar Mattaru, thanks for pointing that out.
    Nice that you’re digging the Summoning!
    Also, of course, glad you enjoyed the revs this week \m/
