Flush It Friday: New Black Metal Supergroup! Friendship Never Ends!

Every once in a while the stars align and the metal world is rocked by a band that shatters boundaries and slays posers with their musical steel. I’m talking about the true legends here, the ones who birthed genres out of their signature sound. I think this moment has finally come again. This is such good news that you won’t even feel the need to flush your problems down. They will be cleansed by pure metalhead bliss.

This week, cryptic Facebook posts started a rumor that quickly lit the internet on fire. It broke the world wide web faster than Kim Kardashian. The metal community was so over hyped that several cases of hysteria were reported – it is said that at least six metal blog contributors went on a loitering/vandalism rampage, ruining ancient stone-built walls all over the United States; at the same time, three editors of a renowned electronic publication tried to commit suicide via overdose of chicken tendies. After a brief stint in Big Jazz Boy Memorial Hospital’s intensive care unit, the victims are now out of danger.

What exactly is the announcement that created all this mess? The one piece of information that brought all da ruckus? Are you ready? Sitting down? Here it is.

George Clinton, Beck, Kendrick Lamar and Varg Vikernes join forces for a black metal supergroup”

Hahaha April fools hahahha

AYY lmao

This post alone was enough to wreak havoc. It obliterated Facebook walls as if they were burning villages, leaving nothing but ashes and smoke behind. Even a former First Lady was enthused.

Let’s hear what the band members have to say about the project.

George Clinton:

Ayy man, smell my finger lmao! I promise to funk, promise to keep it, promise to keep it funk. We gonna get satisfied!

Beck:

Being interrupted by Kanye West is the best thing that ever happened to me. He made me realize I didn’t deserve that grammy. After a full month of nightmares involving a giant Beyoncé, Kanye’s floating head and disappearing award trophies I finally got it together. After a long call with my good friend Thurston Moore I decided to join this new endeavour to hopefully win a grammy. Deservingly, this time.

Kendrick Lamar:

After To Pimp A Butterfly dropped I felt a little lost. Right after release people were in my face asking me all kinds of question like “Are you a prophet?” “When is the new album coming?” “When will we hear your collab with J. Cole?”. I don’t care about none of that. All my focus now is making this black metal project as fly as I can. Everybody is already hooked on TPAB so we already got matching black Dashikis and some mad features on deck so stay tuned.

Varg Vikernes:

Perfect women don’t just fall down from the sky and land in your lap. You have to go look for them. You have to… earn them. There are many things you can do today to attract a good wife. I am joining this black metal supergroup, for example.

One Foot In Compton, Another In Bergen / You Shouldn’t Nut On Deez Golden Feelings is the title of this upcoming double-LP. Some of the confirmed tracks are “I want to dream, mane” featuring George Clarke (Deafheaven) and Juicy J, “Channeling The Power Of Funk Into A New God” and “I Wonder If Valhalla Has A Ghetto” featuring 2Pac‘s hologram. I can’t hardly wait.

        If a kid is good and gets it done, I don’t care if it comes naturally or if he/she practices. Obviously I would prefer him/her to improve and explore other areas, but I’ll take getting it done. If a kid is always getting getting called out in rehearsal, PRACTICE.

  • old_man_doom

    Good: I’m releasing a new EP today via my S.O.L. project (scifi synth rock a la Zombi). I’m really stoked because this EP has been a complete pain-in-the-ass to produce, but it’s finally out. May I present “Data Grave” to the toilet:

    Also, my first S.O.L. album is on here too if y’all want to check that out.

      Just finished it. Congrats, this is awesome stuff. The ending of Virus when the drums go away and only the keys remain is beautiful.

        Thank you, my lord of aquatic excellence.

    • Lacertilian

      Sounds like you could create a pretty killer soundtrack to a film or game with those skills man.

      • old_man_doom

        Thank you, reptile. I would love to score a film. I scored a friend’s short film and one of my own, but I would really love to work on a horror movie and bring those 70-80s vibes to the screen.

    Good: Hug out and drank beers with a friend I haven’t seen in a while.
    Bad: My tv hogging roommate has returned earlier than expected which means no video games shall be had on the ps2.
    Ugly: This last week’s healthiest meal was left over tendies and an orange if you exclude honey nut cheerios for breakfast each day.

    • Stockhausen

      I’m glad you hugged it out with that friend.

      • EsusMoose

        I shall reiterate my comment, fuck English. (time to edit)

        • Stockhausen

          Hehehehe.

  • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

    Also: I don’t understand this supergroup joke at all. I clearly missed something (many things?).

    • Dr. Dubz

      There’s isn’t really anything to it. A few of the writers started sharing it out of the blue, and it turned into a feedback loop of suckage for the editors.

    • The Beargod

      Facebook, people got rekt.

    • EsusMoose

      Our Dear Dubya made a comment about how april fools jokes suck or something, someone decided to do a halfass joke which rang true throughout the kvlt ranks and they copypasta’d it against the walls of the editors who tried to hold out against the wave of hilariousness. Shields were splintered and angers flared but in the end everyone lost interest and went on to the next thing.

      • Siqq Burnington

        Wow. I missed that.

        • EsusMoose

          It was a glorious conquest that was as lackluster as one could imagine copying and pasting the same thing would be

        • Stockhausen

          I’m so glad you actually changed your name. It’s beautiful.

          • Siqq Burnington

            I give credit to you.

  • Dr. Dubz

    Good: very productive week of work.
    Bad : been in a sort of weird funk all week and have had zero energy.
    Ugly: this stupid copypasta has ruined my life.

    GOOD: Music, some of it at least.
    BAD: Job interviews haven’t spawned anything, back at the project. Music, most of it.

  • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

    Good: A week of doing fuck all and playing Vidya Games. Pillars Of Eternity is incredible, and I even managed to get some Counter-Strike in, which was sweet.
    Bad: I have to spend the next week finishing off a media presentation, which isn’t bad in itself, but I also have to do more fucking Computing work, which I wasn’t told about. God I hate my Computing tutor.
    Ugly: My sister had a friend over, and I had to go teach them how to play Halo. As you can probably infer, they were not very good, as in they both had to stop moving whenever they wanted to look around, which for people who say they like the game is pretty fucking terrible

    • I’m behind on my video games. I need to beat Hotline Miami 2. I’ve got to play Life Is Strange Episode 2. I need to start Pillars of Eternity and Bloodbourne. Not enough time!

    • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

      If I had a week without obligations and spent it doing nothing but playing video games, I would reassess my priorities and/or beat myself with a cane. Not to sound like an old fart, but some day you will likely look at those entire days/weeks/months you spent doing things like that and regret the fuck out of it. Life is short. Do stuff, man.

      • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

        It wasn’t all vidya games, just mostly. I go on walks quite regularly, and I even wrote a little bit this week. Just because I like video games doesn’t mean its all I did, I just did that mostly because last week was relatively uneventful.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        HD, do you think video games are a much worse hobby than films, books, heavy metal / music, commenting on heavy metal blogs, etc? I place them [video games] in roughly the same camp. Reading books is slightly above the rest of them.

        • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

          I do think video games are worse. I think it’s pretty much not debatable that they are an inferior hobby to reading (coming from aa health point of view) and from my experience with my friends and other people that I know, they tend to be more demanding, time consuming, and soul sucking than TV or movies. Now, that’s not to say that people can’t be addicted to TV and films to the same extent, as I know there are many people who completely devolve into TV addicts–people who spend hours (days?) watching entire seasons of shows consecutively. In fact, I grew up in a family that was completely addicted to college and pro football. My family would spend entire Saturdays and Sundays sitting around watching football on TV. It was pretty terrible. By the time I was about 8, I couldn’t take it anymore. And I actually LIKE football. But it was just such a waste. I think video games are worse than music as a hobby, too. You can do other things while you listen to music. I listen to a ton of metal, but I tend to do so while I’m doing other things – driving to work, doing data entry, mowing the lawn, doing work around the house, hiking, etc. You can’t do anything else while you’re playing video games. It takes all of your attention, and at the end of the day you don’t really accomplish anything. You spend so much time wrapped up in these games, and “life” tends to take a back seat. I don’t know, I just see a lot of people I know, people I went to school with, who complain about their lot in life, yet they’ll spend an entire weekend playing video games–sitting on the couch and being lifeless when if they got up and did something, they might like their life little bit more. I just don’t see a lot of positives coming from video games. I’m sure there are plenty of people who can do it just as a hobby, maybe play for an hour or two every once in awhile, and it’s not debilitating. But most the people I know who play video games, they are completely addicted. They need to do it, and it takes over their entire life. I know far too many grown ass men whose lives are falling apart because they can’t step away from their Xbox or Playstation and spend some time with friends, family, or do things to better their lives. From my point of view, that’s really sad. And that’s why I feel this way.

          I guess the real moral is, don’t let any hobby completely control your life. If you want good things to come from life, you need to get up and do them. From the people I know, it’s a little hard to do those things when you’re sitting around playing video games for days on end.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            So it’s not really video games as much as the majority of the people you know that play them, and it’s problematic for the group as a majority. Fair enough.

            I agree, I think a large portion of people are into sports to that extreme, which since I’m not into sports I don’t get it at all. I’m into music the way these other grown men are into sports I guess.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            Sports and video game addictions are to my mind the worst things to befall adult men. It can sap so much out of you. And I can only speak for the people I know and know of, of course, but those two have a tendency to take over lives and completely change priorities.

          Mmm no, I (still) am a fan of Kendrick. Just moved him down a notch amongst the Black Hippy guys.

  • The Good: My ear infection is gone as well as the pain that came with it. My eardrum is starting to heal but I still can’t hear dick out of it. My ear was still leaking after seven days so I had the doctor do a culture of it. Thankfully, I do not have methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in my ear. My ear is just exceptionally leaky.

    The Bad: I haven’t been able to listen to any metal this week. My body is crying out to listen to the shit ton of new releases.

    The Ugly: I still have yellow fluid oozing out of my ear, though, it has almost stopped.

    • That sounds beyond shitty, hope your condition improves soon.

      • I’m doing a lot better. Other than the vertigo, I feel like normal. My drainage will most likely be gone by tomorrow or the day after.

        Update: Rotation passed right over us, so that was exciting. Took a pretty gnarlly video of all the lightning. Pretty cool how dark it all got before the rain started falling. Really makes you think about how much of a worthless speck you are. Well not you Stocky but the rest of us.

        • Stockhausen

          Dude, that’s excellent. Watching rotation pass right overhead is terrifying/exhilarating. I think I’m even of less worth, being dead and all.

  • CT-12

    The Good: our friend old_man_doom’s EP so far (listen here https://satelliteoflove.bandcamp.com/album/data-grave-ep), and some of the music purchases I’ve made this week (Death Grips, Inquisition, Slave, Seasick Steve, blah, blah, blah)
    The Bad: I have to work this weekend
    The Ugly: How slow and indecisive I am when writing articles for TOH. I fucking suck at this.

    • Dagon

      The way I go at them is short bursts of energy. I have never worked on an article for more than a day.

      I think about them for a long time, and then when I feel like it I sit down and spend hours until it is done. Usually my mind feels like it was minced afterwards.

      • CT-12

        Thanks for the suggestion mayne! I always end up writing a good chunk one day and then sort of build up and tear down what I had slowly. It’s ineffective, but I’m just never satisfied with my first scribblings.

        • Dagon

          I always worked this way, unfortunately. I wish I was a good planner and took my time to really hone in what I write/work on.

          It’s always procrastinate until deadline, then proceed to desperately write something. I have learned how to do it in a healthier way, though, thanks to this book:

        I suffer from this problem immensely. I cannot start something, but once I do I need to stick with it until I finish, mainly because I wont be able to start it again. Video games. Books. Homework. Results in many long nights, and it is why I cannot play Skyrim

      Sarpanitum. For some reason I wasn’t feeling it the couple times I streamed it, but it’s been getting so much praise that I bought it anyway. And now I get why it’s been so well received. The only word I can really think of to describe the vibe I get from it is ‘Byzantine.’

      • If that aren’t artwork influencing perception, I don’t know what is. Agreed, though.

        • Vladimir Poutine

          Said influence happens to me all the time with albums, especially whatever color is dominant in the album art.

          • We were just talking about this last week, or the week before that. It happens to me all the time as well. I wonder if this is related to why I feel slightly unfulfilled when I purchase albums digitally without being able to hold the artwork in hand and really scrutinize it . . .

          • Vladimir Poutine

            That’s probably a factor, though for me it’s the lack of a physical object to hold that is also slightly disappointing. E.g. with the digital albums I get from Cryo Chamber, I download them in 24-bit FLAC (duh) which is technically better sound quality than CD, but I still wish I had a physical version.

        Urggg… “Kel Valhaal” repeats some of the same motifs as the single they released. I think “Father Vorizen” might be the most accessible song on the album.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    GOOD: Was out looking at houses with my better half all day today. She’s looking to buy. I’ll probably sell my place and move into hers before the end of the year. Pretty solid houses in her price range.

    BAD: My unemployment benefits are on hold for a pretty dumb reason. I picked up my last paycheck last week and until this gets worked out the only income I have coming is in my roommate paying his rent. Good thing I have some dough, if I didn’t I could be in bad shape.

    UGLY: Really shaving my beard next week, per a court appearance (for some old shit). Planning on locking my doors, consuming an ungodly amount of caffeine and snorting tobacco (srs, I got that) and playing Bloodborne until I need to PTFO.

    • Dagon

      It might ruin the Bloodborne vibe but I’d jam some Flatbush Zombies if I was planning to consume substances and pass out afterwards.

      I also still bump The Weeknd’s first release when I’m alone. I love it. I know all the songs to it lol.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ByF65VWgYE

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Fish God I am a fan of The Weeknd. I didn’t think his debut album lived up to the standard set by his trilogy but it had some jammable songs. I’ve come a long way in a short time in Bloodborne but I’m not sure I’m quite good enough for Bloodborne and loud music, lol

        • Dagon

          The trilogy is his first three mixtapes/albums all in one. House of Balloons, Thursday and then the other one whose name I forgot.

        • Sir Tapir the Based

          How are you enjoying Bloodborne?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            It’s super frickin’ fun. Once I got past the first level it’s much easier to stomach, too. I read this video game blogger/writer who said that first level is actually designed to break people, which I believe, lol. I’m still on the first world after getting it last Sunday but I think I am at the last part of it.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            I’ve defeated five bosses so far and about to go kill/get killed by the sixth one. I’ve gotten my ass kicked quite a lot. Surprisingly not by bosses, but from normal enemies. I’m really liking the game.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I beat Father Gascoigne on the first try, it was so epic.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            I almost died to him on first try. I had a sliver of health, but I managed to kill him before he got me. Have you faced the other boss in Central Yharnam yet?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Cleric Beast? Yeah, he took me a few tries. Terrifying on the first try. Unless you are talking about some boss for Yharnam I haven’t faced yet.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            No, I meant Cleric Beast. Have you gone to Old Yharnam yet? The boss there was my third boss. It seems to be giving people hard times.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I just unlocked that level. The place right before it is great for farming blood echoes, between the werewolf, those weird watcher people with white faces and sticks, and that giant skeleton with the bell around his neck and the axe.

            First time I saw that guy I was like holy fuck. Game does a great job with suspense like that, climb a staircase and face down this giant creature, lol.

            I’m playing Old Yharnam tonight, I buffed up my character pretty well. I’m level… I dunno 26 or something. Strength, vitality, and endurance. Saw Cleaver +3, Kirkhammer +1, and Hunter’s Pistol +1 – blood gems on the first two.

            I like the Saw Cleaver more than the Hunter’s Axe cause it’s just a bit faster.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            At first Old Yharnam was annoying due to one fucking fucker. Now it’s a pretty good blood echo farming place.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I played Demon’s Souls but never beat it, and didn’t play either of the Dark Souls games. I like how minimal the story is, and how little they give away at least in the beginning as far as I have played. There is one obvious thing but I’m sure you know what it is and I don’t want to type it out for people who haven’t played it at all, lol.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            I own Dark Souls on pc (bought it on a sale) but I’ve not played it. Bloodborne is my first From Software game. I’m surprised that I’m not crying in the corner and unable to do anything in the game. I also dig the way the story is told. I always read the ite, info when I get a new item.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I guess that is primarily the way to learn about the game / world.

  • JWG

    You could have got a built-in Brony audience had you only titled this “Friendship is Magic”

    Anyway. Good things this week…

    Yesterday another of the indie horror film projects I’ve been following, “The Dwelling” put out its first teaser trailer. I missed its crowd-funding phase early last year, but still want to see it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUOILi6-yAk

    “The Void” made its first Stretch goal in IndieGogo campaign funding; and now has a week to go: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-void–10

    Also, I got word yesterday evening that my commission by Peter Simeti is complete and has been shipped. No hints as to which one it is: https://instagram.com/petersimetiart

    The Bad: Nothing, really. Last week’s “bad” sort of quietly worked itself out. I had another student who thought he could impose on me to meet to discuss some missed lectures TODAY. On Good Friday. But that’s not really “bad” because I had a pretty legit reason to tell him to hold off for a few days. It took a lot of effort not to tell him just to piss off, because I’m technically done supporting students this term (last class was yesterday). But I figured I’ll let it slide.

    {{The Weird: My cousin was to arrange a large extended family brunch to which I was actually looking forward. Somewhere along the lines the date morphed into “Sunday April 4th”, but in a way that none of us could correct until this weekend. She told me and my immediate family April 4th (knowing that one of my sisters, whose birthday is April 4, probably had other plans), and the rest of the family in town “Sunday”. Then made reservations for Sunday. Meanwhile my more immediate family made Sunday dinner plans, thinking her deal was “the 4th”…}}

    The Ugly: cleaning my bathroom after several weeks of neglect. The black and the orange molds on the shower curtain disturb me greatly.

    • CT-12

      Trailer won’t play (says “playback on other websites has been disabled”). I’ll look it up. You seen “It Follows”? I’ve heard so many good things, I was hoping a toilet friend could give me a more trustworthy opinion.

        Try this way: it’s the most recent post on their Facebook page. If you go straight to the youtube vid instead of playing it as an embed it should work:

        • CT-12

          Just watched it, sounds interesting. My only worry is that the look of the movie almost feels a little cliché, like I should really expect some jump scares. The plot sounds intriguing and strong enough to carry the movie through though, so I’ll keep it on my radar.

          • JWG

            I can understand that. Of the two films noted I’m slightly more intrigued by The Void, anyway. It’s on my own radar mostly just because Devanny Pinn is in it (barely in the teaser though: that’s her at 0:38 and that’s it).

            …third mention of her this week, I swear I’m not obsessed.

          • CT-12
          • Scrimm

            Good news on The Void.

      • It Follows is stupid, but not in the way that most major horror films are stupid. It is extremely strange, and beyond pointless, and vodka didn’t make it any better. The John Carpenter-style soundtrack was pretty fucking awesome, though. I recommend watching with your eyes closed and your ears wide open for maximum enjoyment.

        • CT-12

        • KJM

          Seems like a bunch of hype to me.

          • I was not privy to the hype before viewing, as I pay no attention to Hollywood shit. The GF basically dragged me to the theater with the promise of getting tore up on vodka while watching. So…all I can say is that I cannot imagine this bizarre piece of shit livng up to ANY HYPE WHATSOEVER. Unless you are deathly afraid of naked people who walk very, very slowly toward you in broad daylight with very, very intense looks of concentration on their faces . . .

      • Scrimm

        Probably going to see it tomorrow. I dunno though I tend to be dissapointed by all the new horror fims that get tons of praise. Take the Babadook, for example….

        • CT-12

          Oh shit, was Babadook no good? I really wanted to see that movie

          • Scrimm

            I seem to be in a minority, but I didn’t like it much honestly. There were a couple things that Kinda ruined it for me, but I plan on watching it again when I get the chance to see if I feel differently.

    The Good: Just installed a towel rack for the wife in our bathroom so she’s pretty happy. Now I plan to play board games (maybe test match as per their request) or scene it while drinking with friends, on a rainy day.

This album is insanely hit or miss, but you might dig it if you’re looking for some more rap/hip hop to throw into your playlist. Anyhow, just thought I’d share! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiTJSfNqL9A

          Ah, thanks for the recommendation! I believe I played these guys before when you posted them, but I’m gonna check out this song when I take a Bloodborne music break, lol

    Good: partying like Blake Judd and spending Friday evening with the lovely ladies of SHINE Pro Wrestling.
    Bad: Nothing as far as I can tell.
    Ugly: Fuckin’ Tapir.

    • Sir Tapir the Based

      Et tu, Brute?

      • KJM

        yeah, I’m afraid so…

          Y’all need to get your eyes fixed.

            Stop pouring water and shining magnifying glasses on them and we’ll all have better vision!

      Partying like Blake? You shot up behind a dumpster after sucking off several homeless guys in a bathroom stall?

    Good: Another chill week, so no complaints in that area. The room is coming along more slowly than surely, but the new roomy’s talking about giving us a hand with moving my dresser downstairs. I got everything else myself, but no fucking way in hell am I gonna try moving that thing by myself. And waiting up on replies for a band I’m wanting to interview for here (as well as waiting back on a reply from Warrel Dane). I offered Mike Portnoy an interview for here via Blabbermouth, but I’m strongly considering taking that back, given his drama as of late.

    Bad: Nothing that I can think of at the moment.

    Ugly: Tara Reid!!!! Did she start shooting up krokodil or something?!?!
