He's absolutely not sober, he's continuing to rip unsuspecting people off with bullshit sales and "pre-orders" of nonexistent LPs and shirts, and the reason that he's not touring is that he'd get his head caved in if he dared show his face in most major US cities. The guy is an unrepentant thief and a duplicitous sack of poo poo.

From my talks with Blake, he has his fiancee handling the pre-orders for TWWLB because he knows nobody trusts him anymore. I'm not sure if that is a good sign or not, but there are plenty of pictures of the LP+shirt packages and as Baron Von Ghoulosh said, TWWLB has leaked and does actually exist so... I'm not sure I follow.

You left out talented too. I just listened to a leak of TWWLB this morning and it's easily the best thing Nachtmystium has done to date and certainly in the running for BM AotY for me.

Oh, I don't dispute this. I haven't heard anything from the new one but Addicts and Silencing Machine were among my favorite albums from those years.

Except he's still selling the pre-orders on his personal facebook page? He's also been selling stuff from "recently discovered big caches of Battle Kommand items" and then blocking people who ask where their stuff is. Of course the new album exists, I just don't think anyone ordering from him rather than CM should be holding their breath. But hey, I'd love to be wrong and I guess we'll find out in the next week or two.

I can confirm this too. I had several communications with Ashely a few months ago and she seems to handle all of the Nachtmystium orders for him now. Pre-order and otherwise. I believe she painted the new album cover as well. She seems really nice. Besides, even metal dudes are only as strong as the woman taken their pre-orders. I'm glad to hear he has a Sharon Osbourne or Gloria Cavalera in his life. Right?

Yep that's what I'm thinking. I want to have faith in him this time, I've seen his progress from being arrested to going to rehab to getting a fiancee and making efforts to make his life right. Granted, I'll be THAT much quicker in saying "gently caress him forever" if my TWWLB pre-order doesn't actually come in, but... I have hope.

I wouldn't trust anything remotely related to him. One thing that's important to healing from addiction is taking responsibility for his actions, he has not come anywhere close to doing that and he is still ripping people off. Ordering anything from Blake is a foolish move. The only reason you MAY get your pre-order is that TWWLB actually exists. I'm sure there will be plenty of people that won't receive anything however.

Latest rumors are that Blake is living in a motel in Chicago that's infamous for being used almost exclusively by addicts. Blake is a mess and basically any money you give him is going to go towards drugs.

He's been ripping people off with this same poo poo for years. Do not trust him or any "associated" ever, period.

Perhaps the most detailed log of his ripoffs is here: http://nwnprod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=36038

Listen to Shitfucker instead, if you like basement black/speed/thrash metal. I once heard them described as "the Maximum Oversatan of the midwest." If you don't, well, gently caress yourself. http://shitfucker.bandcamp.com/album/suck-cocks-in-hell

All political/lyrical themes aside and approaching from a musical standpoint, I was listening to this song by Satanic Warmaster and really dug it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJtqgzlDVMU. I just thought it had this really cool eerie vibe, work great as an intro or outro to an album. Does anyone have recommendations for more stuff like this?

I hate doing this, but I've somehow managed to completely lose/forget the details of an album I'd been meaning to give another listen through. All I can remember is that I heard about it in this subforum in the context of atmospheric, possibly space-y BM, and the intro was an eerie set of bell tones.

Searching the forum + combing over what I'd marked in Spotify isn't helping so far, i'm drawing a complete blank.

Sometimes Kvarforth is dead drunk and the show is awful, with sloppy playing and no energy. Sometimes he's only quite drunk and angry as hell and they are amazing. It's always a bit of a crapshoot. The new members they have are very talented live, though, which helps.

When they're good, they're very very good; when they're bad they're awful.

Bells chat was on p 238 of the general metal thread, if that's where it initially came from.

Yes there was bells chat. Briefly.

edit: the examples of songs with bells I posted were Neurosis and Secrets of the Moon, neither of which I'm guessing is what you're trying to recall.

To be a little more pedanticdetailed it was more like orchestral bells rather than bongy bells. (Secrets of the Moon I have to investigate, though, thanks!)

I had it marked on spotify at some point, and I assume they lost rights to the album and it disappeared.

That's kinda what I've taken from the videos. When Kvarforth is into it enough and sober he puts on one loving hell of a performance, but half the time he just seems too wasted. It's a shame because Shining is one of my favorite bands.

I would also probably pay decent money to see him go batshit crazy in a bathtub live.

I really like the vocals in this one, but I agree with you about it not being really memorable. I'll give it a couple more spins to see if it grows, but at this point I don't see myself listening to it as much as I would most of their past releases.

They're pretty good if you like doomy slow Black Metal. They're on a tour of the east coast right now too so if they're in your area check them out. They're pretty crushing live and were amazing as the local openers for Lord Mantis and Hell Militia

SPeaking of Kim Kelly, here's some juicy drama. She conducted this interview where she's acting super upset and SWJy about Dragonforce members' non-PC past because racism and misogyny are super hosed up, but handling PR for Anal oval office and owning a swastika shirt is actually somehow much better.

When someone previously called her out on her bullshit she doxxed them and called them fat. Cool person.
