Halloween real horror: Bestial Warlust is back but for one gig only!

Nothing to do on this Halloween? What about a date with SATAN HIMSELF?

1225_photo

Arguably one of the most satanic bands of all time, Bestial Warlust is back, but for one gig only in Melbourne, Australia. The support band is none less than the brutalists of Cemetery Urn.

This is what I call a hell on Earth or even an apocalyptic event.

Tickets aren’t for sale as of yet. But heads up: once they are, they aren’t! The search for it will be intense since die-hards for whole world will go down under to see this unique event that (to add insult to injury) will be performed by the original line-up. How primitive a show can get?

Bestial Warlust was formed in 1990 in Victoria under the name of Corpse Molestation and recorded a couple of demos back then. But, three years later they were renamed Bestial Warlust and recorded the seminal satanic war metal opus called Vengeance War ’till Death in the same year.

Along with Blasphemy (who recorded their sophomore album, Gods of war in the same year), Beherit and their countrymen of Sadistik Exekution, they help pioneer the Bestial Black Metal style (when even the boys in Norway were just… eh… boys) propagating chaos and terror worldwide.

They recorded another album (Blood & Valour), and then the band called it quits in 1997.

Their importance proved to be lasting and that’s why, 26 years after, one cannot lose this satanic date which will be on All Hallows Eve, on Croxton Hotel, Thornbury.

Apocryphal new Burzum album/comp appears on Youtube.

Fake? Remix? Or a new treasure that nobody knew of? Let’s find out!

Sem-Título-2

As everybody now knows Thulean Perspective was banned of Youtube for hate speech. Well I already discussed it here, but by that time some of you might have noticed songs that were not Burzum related but Varg Vikernes related. The current status of Burzum is split-up and there’s no indication that this will change anytime soon.

Anyway: an Youtube user by the nickname “unlockthepower” has posted an entire new album with never heard songs allegedly called Foreldra (which translates to something like Parenting).

Well, now, as many of you have now know, Varg and Thulean Perspective act on Bitchute, (the address is here: https://www.bitchute.com/channel/thuleanperspective/)

As some songs seems to be a remix, subpar to Varg capabilities, his voice is there and some indications that (at least) some of the tracks might be legitimate Burzum are: Thulêan Mysteries (a track which appeared under the same name in a single form back in 2015). Another one is Han som reiste (2012 ForeBears version) a modified version of the track of the same name from 1993 album Det Som Engang Var.

There are indeed other tracks that contradict the remix version that might be recorded by the time of the Sôl austan, Mâni vestan (2013) and The Ways of Yore (2014). It’s a bootleg for sure, but how someone gained access to a treasure like that? Maybe the user unlockthepower is Varg Vikernes himself as Harbard is a god in disguise.

The art chosen for the album is from the French artist called Emmanuel Benner (1836-1896) titled Les hommes préhistoriques chassant l’ours (
Prehistoric men hunting the bear). 

Listen to the tracks for free here:

The Tracking list is as it follows:

  1. Óðinn intro
  2. Veistu
  3. Den store søvn
  4. Meadow Elves
  5. Hail Death
  6. Skâldskapr (Cold Mountain Cavern remix)
  7. Heil Óðinn, Sire (Ambient Instrumental remix)
  8. Thulêan Mysteries
  9. Skâldskapr: Hâvamâl, stanza 138-139
  10. Han som reiste (2012 ForeBears version)
  11. Heill auk Sæll
  12. ForeBears
  13. Heil Óðinn, Sire

old school Death metal Genocídio to announce new line-up.

They gave thanks to old members and are annoucing new ones.

67653141_2815081361841395_5049052193265549312_n

Rafael Orsi and Gil Oliveira “Necromesis” parted ways with Brazilian Traditional Death metal band Genocídio

In note W. Perna and Murillo Leite talked about the invaluable contribution of the old guys to the work of Genocídio and are promising to announce the new guys by tomorrow.

Rafael Orsi joined the band as a guitarist in 2012 and recorded two albums with the band: the 2013 sonic destructive opus In love with hatred and the subsequent Under Heaven None from 2017, their more recent work to date.

Gil Oliveira from Necronemesis joined as a drummer but he haven’t recorded any album with the band. 

Genocídio premiered in 1988 with the self titled EP and later with the seminal full length Depression in 1990. The album influenced bands such as Rotting Christ. 

They have 7 albums and 2 EP’s under their belt.

The only reminiscent member of the original formation is Perna. Murillo Leite joined later on 1993 and sang on the sophomore album Hoctaedrom in the same year.

They were deemed Death/Doom metal in the past but nowadays they play full on death/thrash metal.

Iggor Cavalera goes from metal to industrial with Petbrick. Listen to new single

Noise, electronic, industrial… Iggor Cavalera comes back with a strange project.

max-

 

Iggor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura, Cavalera Conspiracy, Mixhell) is going to come back with a new project which is a duo with Wayne Adams (best known as Ladyscraper) called Petbrick. 

It’s electronic music or metal? Listen to the new single here: 

They’ve release a self-titled cassete/7”EP last year, wich was totally noise and experimental. Really interesting work. 

But this time, judging by the sound of the single things seem to be way different, more palatable as to say. Well different from the first EP. If you’re waiting any sign of metal here, though, none you wil find.

 track listing:

  1. Horse
  2. Radiation Facial (featuring Dylan Walker)
  3. Guacamole Handshake
  4. Roadkill Ruby
  5. Sect
  6. Gringolicker (featuring Mutado Pintado)
  7. Coming (featuring (Laima Leyton)
  8. Jesus Dropkick
  9. Some Semblance Of A Story (featuring (Dwid Hellion)
  10. Dr Blair

The release is due to October, 25th.

Thule in no perspective; Varg Vikernes has lost his Youtube channel.

Thulian Perspective is no more due to new Youtube regulations.

BANNED

 

DISCLAIMER: THIS BLOG IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS, IT’S ABOUT MUSIC. IF POLITICS (AND POLICIES) MESS UP WITH MUSIC, SO IT IS A MUSICAL PROBLEM AND SHOULD BE ASSERTED.

As Frank Zappa once said: who are the brain police? Algorithms are! As internet started to rely heavily on algorithms in order to take down several videos that alleged broke copyright (the infamous article 13), now they are using the same tactic to control hate speech. You know, nazis, white supremacists and whatnot.

What those dudes have anything to do with heavy metal? LET’S FIND OUT:

As you may know (if you may not, google it) Louis Cachet aka Varg Vikernes aka Count Grishnackh aka the guy of Burzum espoused some extreme ideologies in the past and let’s not be hypocrites that he may or may not be right (pun intended) about the things he says nowadays. Or had said. Because one accusation in the past about him being a “nazi” his channel Thulean Perspective has been just banned from Youtube.

The thing is: as we live in the world Politically Correct, SWJ’s (Social Justice Warriors, just  as in “METAL SUCKS”) feel good to accuse bands like Inquisition, Watain, Marduk and Burzum to be NAZIS. As I said, let’s NOT BE HYPOCRITES about the existence of NSBM, but do you really think that the aforementioned bands deserve the label? C’mon. Okay you’re from RABM, so the idiocy makes sense.

Hate speech is not cool. But who are the others to tell me or you what you can watch or read? I don’t like Marxism, but I want to be able to read Das Kapital. I don’t like Nazism, but I want to have the right to read Mein Kampf. Period.

That’s exactly the fallacy on Youtube new rules: the text says: We recognize some of this content has value to researchers and NGOs looking to understand hate in order to combat it, and we are exploring options to make it available to them in the future. (the entire text can be read here). In the subsequent phrase they say “context matters”. I really thought about that. For hours and I concluded: IT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL.

Some of these days I saw (in the same Youtube, where else?) a comedian who said: I want to know who is a racist so I can have a chance to NOT BE(ING) FRIENDS WITH THAT GUY.

Let’s go to the point: if you think (or not) that Varg is a white supremacist is up to you, but to call off a channel like Thulean Perpective is to hush the artist himself, it is to take out the benefit of doubt. All of these seems beautiful but what’s the intention?

To limit the scope of you or me (or your BAND) can or cannot say is to give a power to one group only. Commies or American New-Left or Jewish People don’t have THAT KIND OF POWER. But they are consumers, Youtube gains its money by advertisement, advertisement is associated with a brand, a brand wants to be cool, being cool is to be the good guy in a word of intolerance. Let’s make a fast exercise: If nazis (I’m not saying Varg is one, that’s the WHOLE POINT of these illations) were greater in number and they could pay for the revenue of the companies who put their ads on Youtube, don’t you think the history would be totally different?

Which makes a comeback to the original question: who are the brain police? Youtube delegates to its algorithms what is good and what is bad. Given that Varg Vikernes is SUPPOSEDLY a white supremacist (a lie said one thousand times becomes a truth, a phrase by Joseph Goebbels, the infamous Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945, a tactic that is used gladly by “anti-nazis”), the algorithm simply says: this can, this cannot. This kind of selection is literally brainless. Okay, you don’t like neo-nazis, white supremacists streaming their massacres on Christchurch (New Zealand), I get that. I hate to see animals being mistreated; I opt out always. But to accuse someone from another group simply  because this group doesn’t like a guy by saying: nazi, commie, fascist, is to negate the fact the Youtube opened a precedent to censor you, who want to talk about dolls. Yeah, a stupid example. Until some algorithm decided that a doll is not good for kids because some zealots decided that the said doll promotes hate, violence, political propaganda and pedophilia. That’s until somebody decides that the doll is old fashioned, now it’s time to persecute black metal artists. Until someone decides that black metal isn’t enough and heavy Metal and Rock should be banned. Until you can’t even read an opinion like this anymore. The Big Bother is bigger than ever. Heads up.

The origins of Origin.

Old and new recordings from the pre-Origin era.

unnamed

Paul Ryan, the mastermind behind Origin has recreated former songs from pre-Origin era, playing all the instruments with never-released songs.

Prior to Origin, Ryan used to create songs with his two previous bands: Necrotomy (1990-91) and Thee Abomination 1992-93. (Origin became Origin only in 1997).

Now he’s re-recorded everything from this obscure era: a work made between 2013 and 2018!

That’s what’s all about of the “new” Origin album Abiogenesis – A Coming Into Existence. The trick here is that the very first EP A Coming Into Existence was not re-recorded, but remastered as bonus tracks and its cover is identical to that EP.

unnamed

To better understand, here follow the tracks:

Tracklisting:

“Abiogenesis”

  1. Insanity*
  2. Mauled**
  3. Autopsied Alive**
  4. Spastic Regurgitation*
  5. Bleed as Me*
  6. Mind Asylum*
  7. Infestation*
  8. Murderer**

“A Coming Into Existence”

  1. Lethal Mainpulation the bone crusher chronicles***
  2. Sociocide***
  3. Manimal Instincts***
  4. Inner Reflections The Pain from Within***

* Necrotomy (pre-Origin) 1990-91.

**Thee Abomination (pre-Origin) 1992-93.

Over again: tracks 1 to 8 were fully re-recorded and they haven’t been heard… Until now. Tracks 9 to 12 are the remasters of the first EP (already with ORIGIN name) but this EP hasn’t been released worldwide though.

Abiogenesis – A Coming Into Existence, will be out on May 3rd.

Listen to the “new” never-heard track here:
