There isn't a lot of new information presented in the film, but it's easily worth the $7. Also, Fenriz is hysterical.

Apparently they have something like 350 hours of extra footage, so a DVD is highly likely, although without any tentative date.

Which sucks because it isn't playing anywhere within 5 hours of here.

Eurovision sucks. Lordi was awesome though. I never even heard of it until Lordi was in it then I was like wow this could be cool. Listened to everyone elses stuff and it sucked. It like music for yuppies.

It's about as far from black metal as you can get, but Ireland loves to troll the poo poo out of Eurovision and it's loving hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n--JnAwirk

I bought it on vinyl recently, and some of the inner artwork has some weird fairy poo poo going on. I love WITTR, but I must make sure it isn't a black cascade of fairies and unicorns and such.

I wouldn't commit such a heinous act if I hadn't dug deep everywhere to find no results. Asking here seems like a better idea than some lovely metal forum.

WITTR are basically tree-hugging vegan hippie fags who support eco-terrorism so that's entirely possible.

Of course, but what I'm saying is that he doesn't seem to have the same level of inspiration (whatever it may be) that he had 16 years ago. This causes the album to take on an overall tone where it sounds like Burzum Does Burzum, instead of just Burzum. Basically, most of it is an unfocused mess. He may not have it anymore, or he may simply be out of practice.

Agreeing with everything you've said.

The whole thing sounded to me like it almost could have been 5 seconds of music looped for each song with vocals laid down overtop. In the end it was just tiresome and uninspired.

I guess that is a product of growing up with like only 4 or 5 bootleg CDs as your entire inspiration.

Well yeah but there was an awful lot of that one guy wearing a Slipknot shirt so clearly they weren't that sheltered and in part just had horrible horrible horrible taste in music. I agree that the whole thing was more interesting as a study of the plight of Iraqi civilians than of metal in the middle east. We know very well that middle eastern culture is perfectly capable of producing good metal, it's just that right now all of it comes out of Israel.

Their whole EP is on myspace. It's, well, Metallica worship and 20 years behind the times.

Yes I am completely serious. Except for some minor examples, Black Metal tends to pride itself on its disassociation with other Genre's. And why should it not ? Black Metal is very closed minded, which is why an acoustic song named "Bedrooms" is simply not Black Metal.

And those mellow synth tracks Varg cooked up in his bedroom? The difference is that they weren't called "bedrooms" and he may or may not have been contemplating how much he hates the jews while recording them? Hell, "Tomhet" could mean bedrooms for all I know.

You're taking this all a bit too seriously.

If Gorgoroth re-records any album, I'm going to throw them into the modern Dimmu Borgir pool. Quantos was tolerable but nothing special in my opinion.

I got Hate Forests "Sorrow" album and I really like it. "Fog" was a particularly good song. I'll ask again if anyone can recommend where I go next with them ?

Am I alone in really liking Quantos blah blah Satanblah?

I liked it a lot actually. I totally know that "Rebirth" was hilariously lame thematically, but I still like to listen to it. One time I playing some track off it while I was sitting at a stoplight and had someone ask what I was listening to, it can't be complete poo poo right? :unsmith:
