    I suspect that if Darkthrone ever regressed they'd get off the train at Soulside Journey instead of Trainsilvanian Hunger. Wouldn't that get up a lot of noses. I doubt Fenriz ponders ways in which to annoy stuck in the mud black metal devotees whilst he grooms his Paul Speckmann-esque beard on those long and cold northern nights but that would be a great troll.

    A segue approaches...



    Master's first album is pretty much Death Strike mark 2, four of the songs were Death Strike songs anyway which is why I like it more than the follow up which is a better album but it doesn't have the direct Death Strike link. I also tend to associate this with From Beyond by Massacre since I first heard both in the same week but it was Master that came out on top. From Beyond is just a burger where Master is a burger with relish.

    Exodus and Manowar take note, this is how you update a classic song without pissing all over your past.

    Portal of I was by far my favorite album of 2012. And I've really been meaning to get into Wintersun's stuff, so I'll give that a go shortly.

    What do you folks think of Intronaut? Their earlier stuff was more sludgey and raw but I think they've finally found their sound with their latest album. They aren't brutal or anything, but god damn if the vocal harmonies and bass aren't wonderful.

    While certianly old hat and shit no-body cares about, all the fuss I can see being kicked up around Fez made me want to listen to Burzum. Why? An artist some people refuse to touch the work of because of their views.



    ...that and Varg has now stopped playing metal (again).

    I thought this might interest some of you. One of the more inspiring pieces I've heard in a long time. If you ever should not be discouraged by the 'djent' tag, let it be this time.



    Adaptations from Eric Whitacre (choral arrangement) is amazing as well. Seriously suggest you check it out.

    I guess it's a genre spawned by Meshuggah, because of their guitar sounds. Or something like that. I don't know. Only "djent-y" band I enjoy is Tesseract.

    On the other news, Finland's one and only true slay-core band Rytmihäiriö is ready to launch a new booze and murder-filled album of gorey goodness.

    Apparently Jeff Hanneman has died due to liver failure. RIP, may he haunt the chapels.

    Yeah, "djent" is basically anything that sounds like the band has listened to a lot of Meshuggah. Also Finnish is the most metal language.

    In Germany, this thing happened.

    Saw these gentlemen live this evening. Not quite my thing but they're a good live band.

    Dem riffs. If only there was more contemporary thrash that was this good. This band also appears to be almost unknown, sadly.

    I'm a big Iron Age fan, myself. Shame they broke up a year or so back.
