The name comes from A Song of Ice and Fire, I think, although I've never seen that confirmed anywhere. In any case, unless I'm missing something big none of Skagos' lyrics have anything to do with the books.

I figure they just like the sound of the name.

Rauhnacht are Austrian, not German as I thought, but they are pretty cool:

Anyone know any bands with a similar sound to Nokturnal Mortum's Goat Horns or Nazgul's De Expugnatione Elfmuth? Sort of a symphonic sound, but with raw production. I did look into Nokturnal Mortum's later albums, but they're not as good as Goat Horns.

Came across Heulend Horn's latest a little while ago and liked what I was hearing, it doesn't sound at all like an album made in 2013 with those keyboards.

Yeah seriously, who cares how kvlt it is - if you like the music, cool, if you don't, go listen to something you do like.

I mean, unless we're talking about Merzbow or some Japanese shitnoise band like The Gerogerigegege, it's hard to call an album like The Satanist objectively bad.

Edit-- Most people are just expressing their opinion, yes, but who cares what Nergal does in his free time or if the band is promoted in Hot Topic or whatever.

I'm glad that music can't be objectively bad, unless it's music that you don't like.

To end this horrible touchy-feely derail, NWN just posted two demos from the new Nuclearhammer album. It sounds really killer.

I don't really think much of this, they can play very fast but ehhh. The start of the second track that sounds like funeral doom is ok I guess.

Edit: linking Sarkrista's debut from last year so this post has something to it, it's quite good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0NAASwD3lY

Hey, I'm the guy who wrote the blog about Inquisition. I'd like to point out my main critique of the band isn't based on "Crush the Jewish Prophet", that was just my first hint that they might not be kosher. As to why I'm more concerned about anti-Semitic rather than anti-Christian imagery- in Europe and America at least, we don't live in a society where violence against Christians is commonplace, committed by satanists or anyone else. (And I doubt the violence and persecution of Christians that does occur is much motivated by metal.) Hate crimes against Jewish people, or people of colour, or LGBT people, or the disabled, or whoever, are still all too common, within metal as well- an Asian man was recently attacked at a Taake concert in the UK, to give one example. Fascist ideologues within metal probably aren't the only inspiration for this violence, but I personally don't want to support bands involved with fascist movements and ideology.

As to Dagon's proposed statement, if he's seriously going to suggest that he can't be a white supremacist because he has Latin roots I really have to question his intellect. Someone in the comments offered a related (and also bullshit) argument that Antichrist Kramer can't be a white supremacist- he signed a Mexican band to his label full of white supremacists! The former white supremacist I quoted in the blog, Daniel Gallant, has said this on the subject: “Right wing extremists who are neo-Nazi do often have non-white alliances with others who share anti-Semitic beliefs and views. This was also true for the German WWII regime, who had non-Aryan alliances. There is a public misconception about what right wing extremist and or terrorists are, and what they are not.” He might be prepared to overlook the fact the band is non-white if they agree with his views, similar to how I imagine the Third Reich didn't let their obsession with Aryan purity stop them signing an alliance with imperial Japan. Sadly, white supremacist and anti-Semitic views aren't unheard of among black metal bands in South America, where Dagon spent many of his formative years- his heritage alone does not necessarily exonerate him.

It's weird that you would bring up Antichrist Kramer's views when they got rid of him for their most recent album(and apparently he was quite angry about it, since he thought he was still doing the artwork and they'd already found someone else and not told him).

I don't necessarily disagree with your post, but at least one of his tattoos (visible in the article's photo) is a Valknut. The Valknut isn't exclusively a white supremacist symbol, but it definitely gets a lot of play in those circles. So there's at least some ambiguity. It also doesn't help that the article title includes "what's up with those swastikas," which definitely sets the tone. But yes, Entranced by the Wolfshook seems pretty clearly to be an anti-Nazi song.

Plenty of nonracist neopagans use the walknut too, it's not even illegal in Germany like most variant swastikas are.

Don't bother with Satyricon imo, one of those second rate bands that only get much attention because they're from Norway. Check out some of these:

Varathron - His Majesty at the Swamp
Rotting Christ - Thy Mighty Contract
Master's Hammer - Ritual
Root - Hell Symphony

Don't listen to them, I love Satyricon. Except for Rebel Extravaganza. That sucked.

I mean, you can't deny Frost is one of the most talented drummers in black metal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqC73hT5nWQ

If he's so talented you'd think he'd be in a better band.

How about Gorgoroth, Carpathian Forest, and Watain. Are they worth checking out?

EDIT - Just happened to jump to page 46 (I think) and Gorgoroth and Carpathian Forest were both recommended, so I will check them out as well. I guess I should look up 90s black metal bands and just run down the list.

Gorgoroth are decent early on, Watain are competent but also really boring, haven't listened to much Carpathian Forest.

When I saw Watain at Summer Breeze I was front row and the vocalist came down and threw fuckin goats blood or some poo poo all over the front row. Luckily the guy to my immediate left took almost all of it. So yeah if you dont want a mysterious red, staining substance thrown all over your poo poo dont be front row at Watain.

uhhh that sounds cool, theres a local band here that throws blood at people and they own. I don't know why you'd be into black metal and then think that was bad, blood and gore at black metal shows should be the norm.

Listening to Mysticum's "Planet Satan" now for the first time. The cover art is awful, hope the content doesn't match it.

It's actually not a bad continuation from their first album(probably because it's been written for ages, just not recorded), but yeah the production isn't very good. the awful cover art is so bad that it kind of rules.
