Various Artists - The Christmas Album

Greatest Christmas album ever!
Ever!


Various Artists - The Christmas Album

So I couldn't really decide when I wanted to post this but I figure now is a good time. This is the best Christmas album ever. Anyone who disagrees doesn't know shit about music.

What we have here is a collection of some fantastic bands covering several Christmas songs. Sounds normal, untill you realize who those bands are.

Hows Merzbow covering Silent Night sound? Or Melt-Banana covering White Christmas? Your answer damn well better be "Awesome!"

Also for you Merzbow haters, it is actually a very nice cover, and has a very strong psych vibe to it, along with the lyrics sung in Japanese.

Admittedly also the S.O.B. track is after their grind period, when they became electronic, but hell, it's still S.O.B.

Tracklist

1 Melt-Banana - White Christmas

2 Secret Chiefs 3 - I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

3 Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her - Here Comes Santa Claus

4 Gastr Del Sol - The Bells Of St. Mary

5 Hair Stylistics - Sleigh Ride

6 SxOxB* - Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers

7 God Is My Co-Pilot - Marshmallow World

8 Merzbow - Silent Night

Amor Loreena - Las Viejas Costumbres

And now for something completely different...


Amor Loreena - Las Viejas Costumbres

I've been meaning to post this for weeks now but due to NbBMN was unable to. This is Amor Loreena, and chances are, this is the only place you will find this, unless others were as lucky as I was and happened to be there as well.

Long story made short, the lead guitarist of this group was asking for thoughts on her bands recently recorded album on a particularly popular image board. As things tend to go, she was driven off due to trolling. Much to mine and many others dismay, she had already left before we could offer our praise.

And so I am posting this here. This is some beautiful flamenco style guitar with kind of new agey elements I suppose you could say. Very beautiful music and very good guitar playing.



Give this a listen, and if you do like it, please pass it on. I'd someday like to google this band and actually find something. As is, there is no website, no myspace, absolutely nothing.

Highlight tracks would be Piloto Azteca and Sin Titulo 1 but hell, they are all pretty damn good.

Urfaust - Der Freiwillige Bettler

New Urfaust


Urfaust - Der Freiwillige Bettler

And much as the case was with Paracletus, my good friend has already upped it before me to his blog, and again, he is a better writer than I, so here is his post.

"The perfect follow-up from Verräterischer, Nichtswürdiger Geist and with hints of Einslieder and the split with Joyless, Urfaust delivers after 5 years without releasing a full length. The duo conformed by IX (vocals, guitar) and VRDRBR (drums) proved that they didn't waste their time. Der Freiwillige Bettler (The Voluntary Beggar in german) is an excellent album, which makes me miss a bit of the orchestral sections in Verräterischer..., but it has some of the melodic side of Einslieder which made that EP so worthy of several listens.
Big favorite of the album: Der Mensch, die kleine Narrenwelt.

Download it here: [320]

Buy it directly from Ván Records here."

Fantastic album, well worth a listen if you enjoyed the previous album posted.

Sabbat - Black Up Your Soul

Envenom Into the Witch's Hole


Sabbat - Black Up Your Soul

So for those of you not aware, there are two bands named Sabbat. There is the British thrash band which was basically their answer to Slayer who eventually became the folk metal band Skyclad, and then there is the Japanese one...

The Japanese Sabbat is a lovely mix of really everything metal but namely thrash, black and even old school death, and this album is a perfect introduction to the band. Black Up Your Soul is basically a best of compilation and it really does have some of their best tracks, including the godliness that is the track Mion's Hill.

Vocals may seem off putting for some but this is a fantastic band best not ignored.

Tracklisting:
1.Welcome To Sabbat

2.Black Fire

3.Poisonchild

4.Rage Of Mountains

5.Possessed The Room

6.Darkness And Evil

7.All Over The Desolate Land

Spite Extreme Wing - VLTRA

More fantastic Italian black metal


Spite Extreme Wing - VLTRA

I admittedly just got around to giving this a listen earlier today and I think this will quickly become a fast favorite. Last.fm calls this "melodic black metal" however to me this is not something quite so simple. There is a lot going on here, with a lot of different influences. Seriously, there is a The Misfits and The Beatles cover in here.

Best bet, just give it a listen, you won't regret it.

Hateful Abandon - Famine (or Into the Bellies of Worms)

Like Joy Division?
Like black metal?
Ever wanted to hear a blackened Joy Division?


Hateful Abandon - Famine (or Into the Bellies of Worms)

Seriously. This sounds like a blackened Joy Division. One track even has a strong resemblance to the track Shadowplay. Apparently this band used to be just Abandon and supposedly played some pretty normal black metal, and then another guy from pretty much a Von worship band joined and... this is what came out.

I've had this along with the new Thranenkind on repeat really for the past few days and it is just wonderful. Give it a listen.

Movimento d'Avanguardia Ermetico - Stelle Senza Luce

More Italian black metal


Movimento d'Avanguardia Ermetico - Stelle Senza Luce

Google translates their name into "Avant-garde movement Hermetic" so for the sake of proper English, I'm going to say that translates to "The Hermetic Avant-garde Movement". If anyone actually knows what the name translates to, let me know.

Anyway, this is some pretty good black metal. For having Avant-garde in the name though it isn't that... different or avant-garde really. It's some nice easy to listen to atmospheric type stuff for the most part. The cover is actually pretty accurate to the sound as well I would say.

Anyway, give it a listen, it's another example of some lovely Italian black metal.

Tracklisting:
1.Decade di Isolamento e aristocratico distacco

2.Ritorno alle porte dell'essere

3.Spazi remoti di abissi interiori

4.Falchi d'acciaio oltre la nebbia

5.Quando l'onore sfida l'infamia

Thränenkind - Eine Momentaufnahme

Borderline neigecore from Germany


Thränenkind - Eine Momentaufnahme - Der Rest ist nur Einsamkeit

I first heard this back when it came out, and had meant to post this long ago, but this little demo is fantastic.

This is just the right blend of neigecore and black metal to create some beautiful and memorable music. I really hope these guys do a full length, and soon, cause this is just a fantastic piece of music, and it's only a demo.

Tracklisting:
1.Der Liebesbrief

2.Im schwarzen Kämmerlein

3.Eine Momentaufnahme

4.Ein Hauch von Zweisamkeit

Deathspell Omega - Paracletus

Have You Beheld the Fevers?


Deathspell Omega - Paracletus

A good friend of mine already posted it over on his blog, found here, and he is a far better writer than I, so enjoy.

"The chaotic riffing of Fas, the motif structure of both Kénôse and Chaining the Katechon and the interludes of Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice, that's how the final chapter of the trilogy, Paracletus, sounds like, with an added complexity result of the natural evolution of a band that has remained in almost complete secrecy since their inception. Words alone can't explain how good this album is.

The Holy Ghost, the explicit reference on the album's title, is evoked in the album cover as a deformed black beast with thousand of tentacles and born from the above fire, Deathspell Omega exposes this true nature in a lyrical and musical frenzy, taking aback the listener in this revealing journey through chaos. The summarizing of their enlightning message comes with the final words of this album:

You were seeking strength, justice, splendour! You were seeking love!
Here is the pit, here is your pit! Its name is SILENCE…

"Fog" Double Post 2/2: Mgla - Groza

It's apparently pronounced "Mmgwaah"


Mgla - Groza

Mgla, "fog" in Polish, is certainly one of the best bands out of Poland in recent memory. Musically, kind of an atmospheric take on orthodox black metal, but you can decide yourself.

Great album, great band, give it a listen.

"Fog" Double Post 1/2: Taake - ...Doedskvad

Rock out with your cock out!

(Literally)


Taake - Hordaland Doedskvad

If you didn't get the opening line, there is a very infamous image of Hoest from Taake live, with his penis sticking out of his jeans. Also, this will be a double post of two bands whos names both mean "fog". In case you couldn't figure it out, Taake is Norwegian for "fog".

Musically, somewhat similar to Emperor. Lots of fast little melodic lines ala I Am the Black Wizards type stuff, but really thats where comparisons end I'd say.

Anyway this album is fantastic, and was an old favorite from my high school days. With Nothing but Black Metal November going, I decided I'd revisit this oldie classic of mine, and by golly, it's still fuckin awesome.

Urfaust - Verräterischer, Nichtswürdiger Geist

They are from the Netherlands, not Germany, good guess though.


Urfaust - Verräterischer, Nichtswürdiger Geist

Continuing with Nothing but Black Metal November this is Urfaust's second full-length. So what is Urfaust? Good question. Atmospheric black metal, with clean/cleanish vocals and featuring several classical interludes.

The clean vocals actually really work too despite the initial concept may make you scratch your head, hell, you'll still scratch your head when you hear them. The classical/ambient pieces are fantastic as well, quite bombastic.

So give this a listen, no cliches here, fantastic band.

Fides Inversa - Hanc Aciem Sola Retundit Virtus (The Algolagnia Divine)

Ohh those Italians and their black metal...


Fides Inversa - Hanc Aciem Sola Retundit Virtus (The Algolagnia Divine)

Something about Italy just continues to produce some fantastic black metal, right up there with the French, must be the Pope.

Fides Inversa are a relatively recent Italian black metal band to my knowledge, and this fantastic album is their only release as far as I can tell. Upon first listen I actually didn't care too much for this, probably because I had expected something more like Deathspell Omega, but upon revisiting this, I loved it.

So ya know what, I'm not gonna say what this sounds like, just go for it, it's good.

Halloween Double Post 2/2: Scott Walker - The Drift

I'm the only one...
Left...
Alive...


Scott Walker - The Drift

Scott Walker, for those unfamiliar, used to be a 60s pop singer. As of recently however his music has taken a drastic turn to the experimental and downright horrifying. The Drift, is one of those later albums.

I was originally introduced to this album by a friend who told me it was one of the scariest albums he had ever heard. I was skeptical, but no, this really is absolutely terrifying this album.

It isn't terrifying per say from creepy spooky ambient noises however, there is something more to the sound, the haunting vocals, and the peculiar irregularities from the experimental that really give this album its horrifying sound.

Here is a sample.

Halloween Double Post 1/2: Enemite - Wuyuan

Ready to shit your pants?


Enemite - Wuyuan

Wanna creep the shit out of your neighbors, roommates, kids and anyone else? Play this.

Enemite is a Chinese ritual and dark ambient project, of which I know nothing more. Being Chinese, and also having a strong ritual aspect, it has a strong Eastern sound to it, as if some cult was summoning various Buddhist demons to torment and torture the souls of others.

Highly recommended, and fucking creepy shit.

V/A - Can You Jack?

Well? Can you?


V/A - Can You Jack? Chicago Acid and Experimental House 1985-95

I love acid house. Hell, I love pretty much anything that can be described as having an acid influence or sound. I just fuckin love the sound of that overdriven TB-303.

This is a comp album of some of the most classic tracks to come out of the acid house scene, and even features my personal favorite acid house track, Phuture's Acid Tracks, so damn good.

So if you are new to acid house, or trying to get into it, this is a fantastic place to start.

Sabbath Assembly - Restored to One

Glory to the Gods in the Highest


Sabbath Assembly - Restored to One

I'm going to say flat-out, I don't see how anyone could dislike this. Actually, you could if you were someone stupid enough to think anything religious instantly made it stupid. Then again, I don't want you on my blog if you are like that.

What we have here is a re-imagining/reprocessing of the hymns of the old 60s apocalypse cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment. So what made this cult special? They used music themselves to spread their hymns and beliefs, of which this album is a more updated take on those old versions. The Process Church was a rather unusual cult also in terms of belief. Labeled Satanic by most they referred to Gods, in particular, Jehova, Lucifer, and Satan, and that the Final Judgment would bring them all together, with Christ as judge, and Satan as the executor of judgment etc etc. Quite interesting really. Check the wiki if you are curious. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Process_Church_of_The_Final_Judgment

Moving on though, musically this is very strongly 60s psychedelic influenced. It's got that old 60s psych feel with folk, and even doom, which makes sense as the vocalist is none other than Jex Thoth.

Closest thing musically that comes to mind is The Electric Prunes and their Release of An Oath album, in that both albums are 60s psychedelic rock, and involve the reciting of hymns. Give this a listen, it is fantastic and extremely addictive. I guarantee you too will be singing "Glory to the Gods in the Highest".

Horseback - The Invisible Mountain

Hatecloud Dissolving Into Nothing


Horseback - The Invisible Mountain

This is a pretty interesting band, and one that is somewhat a mish mash of genres. There is a strong drone sound to this, sounds at times like Earth - The Bees Made Honey in the Lions Skull however with a more prominent atmospheric doom vibe to it with black metalish vocals.

Hell, just give it a listen, it's great and rather catchy in a "I want to hear this again" manner.

This is Leper, a blackened crust/ska band out of Canada. Initially that word "ska" kept me away from this band. How could anything related to ska possibly be good? But oh this is. It very much is.

Take Iskra, and then add in some catchy as fuck ska and reggae grooves and you have Leper. This shit had me floored since I first gave it a listen earlier tonight. Give this a listen.

Vidulgi OoyoO - Aero

So yea, I've been pretty lazy and distracted but here is a nice treat.

This is probably one of my most favorite shoegaze albums, and is rather underrated honestly. Vidulgi OoyoO is a great little band out of South Korea, and this album is frankly excellent. They maintain the classic shoegaze sound, while maintaining their own unique sound and take on it.

Also I just love female vocals.

The Conet Project - Recordings of Shortwave Numbers Stations

Yankee... Hotel... Foxtrot...



For any of you not familiar with Numbers Stations, they are unknown stations which can be heard on shortwave radios, repeating, well, numbers, and other such things. They are largely believed to be used by governments to inform spies of their orders in a completely uncrackable manner. Further, locating the origins of such number stations are, frankly, neigh impossible.

This is a phenomenon I was recently introduced to a few months ago and fell in love with this release. The Conet Project is exactly what its subtitle says it is, recording of hundreds and hundreds of these numbers stations in short 1-3 minute bits. Some can be quite creepy though, the Swedish Rhapsody in particular, with its eerie monotone young child reciting numbers in German in between stints of ice cream truck music.



When I first heard these it blew me away and instantly gained a spot in my sleeping playlist, but even for simply listening purposes, these are great.

This can be downloaded from archive.org, however I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather not download each track individually, thus it is in a nice rar file here.

So yea, if you couldn't tell by the band name, album title, or tracklisting, zombies are the name of the game for this old school flavored Japanese death metal band. Don't have much else to say really, these guys do what they do, and do it well, pretty underrated band as well, so give um a listen.

One Eyed God Prophecy - Discography

Proto-screamo


One Eyed God Prophecy - Discography

Some of you I am sure are familiar with the screamo sound of the early 90s, bands like Orchid, Angel Hair, Heroin etc. Well this band was the precursor to them all.

Alas, they were around very briefly and only released this one LP however despite this, they influenced the better part of an entire genre.

So if you like Orchid, and your screamo dark, loud and pissed off, you'll feel right at home here. Well worth a listen for screamo fans, hell, even you crust punk fans could like this especially if you like the darker bands.

Susumu Hirasawa - Siren

My favorite Hirasawa album.


Susumu Hirasawa - Siren

For those not familiar with Susumu Hirasawa, I made a post about him last year or so, back when his new album Planet Roll Call came out. The basic gist of which is that he is responsible for a great many of things, and has been at the forefront of the Japanese electronic music scene.

This is one of his older albums, from back in 1996, and is pretty much a concept album about Thailand of all places. Then again, Thailand has always been a big source of inspiration in a lot of Hirasawa's works.

Here's a youtube of my favorite track though.

Envy - Recitation

This is the new album from Envy, it just leaked last night, and it officially comes out tomorrow, so I figured I'd toss this up here.

For those living under a rock, Envy are probably the most well known of all the Japanese screamo bands, and are most well known for their recent incorporation of post-rock into their song structure. This album continues further with that musical direction.

What more can I say, it's Envy, and it's great. Also, they are currently on tour so look into any upcoming tour dates. For you local folks, they are playing Jerky's on the 29th which I'll be attending.

Dark Castle - Spirited Migration


Dark Castle - Flight of Pegasus (EP)

So I saw this duo up at Great Scott on Friday at the Nachtmystium, Dark Castle, Zoroaster, Atlas Moth show, and honestly, I thought they stole the show.

Dark Castle is a two-piece sludge/doom machine that deliver some seriously crushing riffs. Quite unusually also, the guitarist/vocalist is in fact a girl. Got to talk to her a bit after the show, and she is easily one of the nicest people I've ever met. So if this tour happens to come by you, I strongly recommend checking it out, if only for them, course, Nachtmystium are pretty good themselves.



This band is pretty much my newest obsession. I just can't get enough of this stuff, so seriously give it a listen, and like I said, go see them live, won't regret it.

Dopamine - Dopamine EP

Fuck yea Neigecore!


Dopamine - Dopamine EP

If any of you are familiar with the The World Comes to an End in the End of a Journey compilation, you'll be familiar with Dopamine. Dopamine's track honestly was the best track on it to boot.

But as mentioned at the start of this post, this is some lovely Neigecore. What is Neigecore? It is the term I use to describe the new influx of bands that sound like well, Neige related projects, such as Alcest, and Amesoeurs, and Lantlos, and Mortifera, etc etc. Dopamine is one such similar sounding band, from a rather unusual location, China.

Musically, this is a fairly short 2 song EP with each track roughly 7 min long. Just some nice sounding post-punk influenced black metal that sounds great, and is easy to get into.

Tracklisting:

1. Water Edge
2. Fan Night Pt. I
