Everybody is out Agalloch.

Agalloch is no more. Status Unknown!

1781867_10152206414388606_561791592_n

Everybody got out Agalloch, including Don AndersonJason William Walton and Aesop Dekker leaving John Haughm on its own. For the moment the band is nonexistent, but nobody knows if he wants to continue. 

Says a statement on their official Facebook page:

Following 20 years, 5 full length albums, many tours around the world, and numerous other recordings, John Haughm and the rest of the band (Don Anderson, Jason Walton, and Aesop Dekker) have parted ways. What the future holds for the separate parties remains undetermined. We collectively thank all of our fans across the world. There are also way too many other people to thank who made this band possible. You know who you are.

Agalloch has been experiencing a huge success through the last years and the reasons for breaking up were unknown until Haughm posted again on the Facebook 2 hours later:

After being inundated by a barrage of responses, I feel that I should clarify some things. I take full responsibility for the decision to part ways with the other guys. It was difficult, well thought-out, and something that had been culminating over the past couple of years. I simply could not continue any further with the band as it was. I had to make a change as my motivation and inspiration had started to completely deteriorate. Whether this is the permanent end of Agalloch altogether or a possible fresh start, I don’t know. I probably won’t know for awhile. The band has simply been reduced back to its founding, visionary member for the first time in 20 years. Beyond that, the future is unknown.

– J. Haughm

So don’t expect anything coming soon.

Evangelical pastor abuses children: Policeman is a Brutal Death Metal fan

A curious case involving  an evangelical pastor and an ultra underground death metal band!

rnns

An evangelical pastor is jailed for pedophilia in a city in the hinterland of Brazil. His name is not revealed, but the policeman who detains him is a fan of the most underground brutal goregrind band in the country: Regurgimentação Necrovaginal Sangrenta and appears in a video of the biggest TV station of South America sporting their T-shirt.

See the video in the post below (in Portuguese).

http://g1.globo.com/sp/campinas-regiao/noticia/2016/04/pastor-evangelico-suspeito-de-abusar-criancas-e-preso-em-indaiatuba-sp.html

The band in question is not exactly known for being big shots in Brazil or elsewhere, (although they’d had figured in this blog, click here to read a review of their underground demo ) which makes the case even more curious. 

The band claimed in their Facebook page to not know their “illustrious” fan.

Listen to their putrid sound and judge for yourself why this case is strange… If you’re a death metal fan you can listen to the entire demo on Bandcamp: https://regurgimentacaonecrovaginalsangrenta.bandcamp.com/album/demo
