Lets Talk Metal - Page 694

post #10396 of 15135
Since we're talking Slayer, it reminded me that there was the biography "No Mercy: The Real Story Of Slayer" (or something like that) by Jarosław Szubrycht (Polish music journalist, ex-lead vocals of local cult band - Lux Occulta), which got GREAT reviews here in Poland, but I'm not even sure if it got an English-language release. I'll probably pick it up myself if I find it somewhere.

When it comes to books, I have a few music-related, but the only ones connected to Metal are Ozzy's autobiography and Metallica's "So What! The Good, The Mad And The Ugly", both of which I liked.

Documentaries... hmm...
They are pretty known (methinks), but "Such Hawks, Such Hounds" was great (it's about Stoner Rock/Metal - includes f. ex. Saint Vitus or Sleep) and "Nocturno Culto's The Misanthrope", which is "a day in the life" kind of thing and is... kinda interesting to say the least.
"Flight 666" and "Lemmy" were awesome, too.
Someone recommended me "Once Upon A Time In Norway", but I haven't seen it.

Until the light takes us is indeed very good and worth watching.

Worth giving a try.
The sound is a bit weird in some parts. Don't know what they did there.

Oranssi Pazuzu - Muukalainen Puhuu - 2009

 

Very unique sound this band has crafted. I hadn't heard this album in some time and a track came on in random play today, so I took a listen to the whole album again.  Just as good as the first time I heard it!

For some reason, there's something very endearing about 'perfectionist' one-man black metal band. Something cool about a guy embracing da blaekk metuhl misanthropy to the extent that he has to play every single instrument himself and become infamous for their "delays". Of course, the result is always worth it. Elysian Blaze and Infestus are both great examples of this. While EB shows one-man precision through a cohesive, well-thought and downright world-destroying atmosphere, Infestus showcases skill in all his instruments through awesome melodies and diverse songwriting. And both are working on a new album!

So why do I get Akercocke??
 

I like Akercocke, too. But, I also like WOTR quite a bit. Clearly you are Satanic and drinking the blood of newborns.

I feel bad for missing out a festival gig of theirs last summer. They were pretty much the opening act and the lines to get in were like ~2hrs too long for me to make it in time :(

True Dat....some very astute 16 year olds. NTL, I think I have much better taste in heavy music in my old age!

 

In my case, a hundred years ago with I was 16, I listened to the hard rock of the time and the drivel that was marketed as heavy metal in the early 80's because I wasn't cool enough....or, at least, I  didn't have the cool enough friends around me to show me  what  was bubbling in the underground. Of course, that was before words like "extreme", "black" and "death" were part of the metal lexicon, and before the internet when vinyl was the only game in town. That was also before the merging of alternative, punk and metal occurred which I generally think helped make metal more interesting.

 

That said, I just reripped all of my classic Sabbath, Priest and Maiden discs into lossless files.....I don't listen to them often, but when the mood strikes they still sound pretty darn good with my "extreme" metal IMO.

 

And, I stand by my assertion that, SQ loudness, etc. aside, the new Sabbath album is pretty great-even if you just view it as a throw back to blues based hard rock.
