Anyone listened to Peste Noire's last album? Not a fan of Famine's politics but I really liked their two albums before the latest one. Especially the La Chaise Dybale felt like some dark hillbilly french rock and it even had old war/marching songs adapted to black metal. Don't see any reviews for it but metal archive user review are very negative on it.

I really haven't gotten into anything he released after 2007 or so. His music and politics have just gotten worse and worse, he even contributes to far right rap which is just horrible. His use of literal black face recently doesn't sit really well with most people either. Honestly, some of the early stuff is quite good but gently caress Famine, what an absolute idiot.

Sammy Davis Jr. Jr. is also in repose.

Imperial Triumphant announced a new album. No music to go with it, but they put up the artwork.


Comes out at the end of July.

They're certainly a 'have to see live' band to 'get'. When you see how they play then it all makes sense. The drummer is insane!

Must've been leaked from there or something because it's got 577 ratings on RYM.

Seeing bands like that tune and then very obviously go to the green room and change is funnier than just doing it on stage. Looking at you, Thantifaxath.

Never said touring makes someone right but either way, I'll just leave it at that. Excuse my indecency.

I've been revisiting a lot of pagan black metal from when it was trendy, and man does a lot of it age absolutely horribly.

Blaming the CIA for various trends in art seems to be all the rage these days. Just wondering - has anyone read any entertaining theories about our beloved subgenre lately? I'm bored and would like some light reading material.

edit: I'm guessing that they would really only deal with stuff that's in the mainstream. The idea of them bothering with BM is therefore highly but whatevs figured I'd ask anyway

It was honestly just a brain fart. Graham Elwood read an anonymous letter claiming to be from an industry insider that alleged that the CIA was responsible for the rise of gangsta rap, and I was wondering if there was anything equally lol for BM.

Burzum were late-Soviet era desinformatsiya designed to make fascists look dumb as hell. Debut in 1991, same year as the dissolution of the Soviet Union. 1993 album called "Det som engang var". "That which once was" - sound like a certain something else to you? (It's communism)

I really wish my mind palace would have taken me to a place that isn't #resist-y as all hell, but all I could come up with otherwise was "Death SS were part of Operation Gladio"

Many european nsbm bands are directly tied to or involved in far right political organisations so there's bound to be intelligence agency connections there somewhere. The most obvious would probably be Ukrainian bands like nokturnal mortum who are supportive of the neonazi elements in the US backed Ukrainian government. I'm not sure why this is funny though, seems pretty serious!

In retrospect I should have excluded NSBM because it's too obvious. As I said, this was a complete brain fart of a post and deep down I mostly just wanted to see some jokes at Varg/Euronymous' expense because that poo poo will never not be funny to me

Does 'Satanic black metal music' being played for hours at Guantanamo bay count? How about if the officer then dressed as a Catholic priest and baptised a Muslim prisoner?

That's cool as poo poo. Unlike Drowning Pool whose music was played to prisoners, and who then performed at 'Freedom Fest' at Guantanamo Bay...

Also just about to play new Afsky and mega excited. Found them through this thread and were one of my favourite bm finds from last year.

The new Afsky is fantastic. Some other albums I've really been enjoying lately: Vengeful Spectre (Chinese black metal with folk instruments), Oranssi Pazuzu, Izthmi, Aara, Mare Cognitum/Spectral Lore, Sojurner, Obsidian Tongue, and Marrasmieli.

In personally disappointing news, Gaerea is now selling a Blood and Soil shirt on their website. I didn't think they were fashy before this, but I don't see how that wasn't a conscious choice.

FWIW that shirt is now called Lone Wanderer and there's no mention of blood and soil anymore. Dunno if this is them hiding it or realising a fuckup.

Yeah I just noticed the link redirects to a renamed shirt. Iíd really like it to be a gently caress up since I loved their last album (I have a shirt and everything!) but itís such a commonly known phrase that Iím not entirely sure it can be. Idk. I guess Iíll keep an eye on them. :/
