Look, last week was a tie.

My Candlemass and Max’s Annihilator got 10 votes each. I entertained the idea of being a good guy and just giving Max the win. That lasted for about two seconds because fuck that. I win. Better luck next time, nerd.

Moving forward. Unless you’re a total dork that doesn’t actually read the posts, you’re aware that this week has a theme brought to you by Joe Himself. His imperial decree was that this week’s riff selection would consist of “the siqqest movie samples + opening blasts.” And so it shall be. But first, read this!

  • Next week, RIFF OF THE WEEK will be replaced by SOLO OF THE WEEK.
  • The Rule still applies — no Maiden, cheaters!
  • If you want to submit a solo, email toiletovhell@gmail.com.

 

Masterlord SteelDragon

The clip is from 2001: A Space Odyssey and it runs right up to a riff made of infinite gravitons. Legend has it that it was formed in pitchblack void when a black hole devoured a second black hole, which in turn devoured the first black hole from the inside-out, beyond the event horizon. Start it at 1:22.

The audio clip of Kevin Spacey talking about desire and value establishes an emotional backdrop throughout the duration of this song, and the brass arrangements and gentle lilting strings accentuate the feeling of alienation. This reaches a climax as the piano line gradually accelerates until it reaches a thundering crescendo before the metal riff rolls in with a triumphant roar and blast. The Ocean and Mr. Spacey release you into the winds of change in a truly cathartic fashion.

 

Leif Bearikson

I am an unabashed Alien fanboy. I enjoy everything in the franchise, but on different levels. Alien Resurrection falls into the “so bad it’s amazing” category. I am also a Ron Perlman fanboy, but because everything he does is fucking gold. SO it only makes sense to select a song that features Ron Pearlman’s best line from the Alien movie everyone loves to hate. It doesn’t hurt that the song is by cinematic grind masters Graf Orlock. Jam it and let it compute.

 

Stockhausen

Brain Famine was featured on one of our Flush Fridays, and I have no qualms about bringing them back. This tune kicks off with a frantically awesome Jeff Goldblum quote from The Fly, and then we dive right into one of the most satisfyingly rockin’ death metal riffs out there. Never in my life have I wanted to be bald, have a huge beard, wear a denim vest, and stomp around in a circle more than during opening riff after that quote. And the best part is that their album is a free download! Follow the Bandcamp link below.

 

Edward Meehan/Moshoff (submitted the same riff/should get married)

Edward Meehan: “the siqqest movie sample + opening blast”? This should be the only sample/riff combo submitted. Starts almost immediately.

MoshOff: A wise man once told me to shut up and listen to None So Vile. If you don’t vote for me, Lord Worm will eat you miserable worms from His goblet.

 

Howard Dean

Patton and Skinless. A match made by bayonet.

 

Scrimm

I can’t think of a better sample or opening to a metal album than this. Ever. Two words is all it takes to sum up listening to this classic and massively underrated band.

 

Randall Thor

I have failed power metal and am a total loser because I didn’t provide MSD with a description.

 

Max

I’m pretty sure there’s gonna be about five other people who nominate this before me – I get the impression the challenge was conceived with exactly this in mind – but I’ll nominate it anyway and hope for the best:

Movie: The Plague Dogs (1982, animated drama)
Band: Brutal Truth
Song: “Walking Corpse” (1992, grindcore)

It’s a travesty that I couldn’t find a high-definition version on Tube of You.

 

Jack Bauer

This is sick as hell and it makes me want to run people off the road.

 

Cock ov Steele

I don’t know what movie this sample is from, but dat riff. Starting right off the bat it gives me the impression that a horde of stoned, demonic zombies are making their way to whatever stoned demon zombies do.

 

Ellipsis

The intro of NIN’s “Reptile” is a looped sample from the 1989 film Leviathan, which gives way at 0:58 to a stomping, mechanical riff that will be the perfect soundtrack for the inevitable robot apocalypse of the near future. The song also contains a sample from the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre at 5:05.

 

Dr. Derelict

Sickest movie sample + opening blast? Easy. (0:00 – 2:15) The entire first song, “Dechristianize,” is RotW-worthy (especially the riff introduced by the transition that starts around 4:20). “Devoured Elysium” (starts at 17:13) should also be entered in entirety. It’s what Satan jams to get pumped before rugby matches, and it contains the meanest riff on this album (around 20:44).

 

Johnny Crunch

Alright then, the samples just sneak in there at about 4:25. This riff is one of my all time faves from the doom metal masters and the accompanying video shows Lee Dorian having a ball and not giving a fuck. Don’t know what he’s doing dancing with Diana Ross, though.

  • Death

    Fuck yeah Max! Fucking love Brutal Truth!

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      Have you ever checked out Kevin’s other bands Venomous Concept and Primate?

  • Scrimm

    By the way, everyone should recognize wat my sample is from, but in case you didn’t it’s Robocop.

    • Jöhnny Crünch™

      And yeah mine’s from um..Witchfinder General

  • Edward Meehan

    I’m getting to leave for a wedding all day, so like with much of the first round of our unsigned band contest, I had to make a decision quickly. I cast my vote for the esteemed Howard Dean. Godspeed gentlemen.

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      ^^^ Vote for this guy.

  • W.

    Guys, that’s just mean sneaking one of my favorite songs by NIN into the ballot.

    • Ellipsis

      I had no idea about the movie samples until I looked them up after the question made me think of the song.

      • W.

        I think there might be some Eraserhead on that album too, but I can never remember which song. Downward Spiral is one of my absolute favorite albums.

        • Ellipsis

          Here’s a list I found, if your interested:
          http://www.ninwiki.com/Samples_In_NIN_Songs

          It doesn’t mention Eraserhead but Mr. Self Destruct also starts with a sample, this time from George Lucas’ first feature length THX 1138.

          #LucasFact

          • W.

            Interesting. That’s a great resource. Thanks! I’ll have to do some digging to figure out what I was thinking of.

          • W.

            Maybe I’m just thinking of the fact that Reznor has cited Eraserhead as an influence (I think especially on Downward Spiral). http://www.esquire.com/blogs/culture/eraserhead-influence

        • Virgil the Ghost Poet

          All his work is great.

          • W.

            You’ll hear no argument from me.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Hmm, this is a more difficult decision than I anticipated. I think Vital Remains movie sample, though very long, does the best job of setting the atmosphere and mood for the rest of the album, and Benton’s opening roar of “LET THE KILLING BEGIN!!!” is still one of my favorites. Despite all that, idk if I would rate it above Skinless, Cryptopsy, or Brutal Truth in terms of sheer impact on the listener. Skinless hit hard after Patton’s brutal war speech, the opening blast just slams you in the face like a sledgehammer made of hate. Brutal Truth, of course, also go hard as fuck after their movie sample, grinding and blasting

    • dr.derelict

      agreed.

  • The artwork this week makes me absurdly happy.

  • Also, if anyone would like further reading material this morning you can read this and cry yourself to ash. http://gizmodo.com/this-is-the-first-weekend-in-america-with-no-saturday-m-1642441646/

    • Mr.CustodialArts

      “Things were better in my day!” #oldmanfacts
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISdr6wf68Kk

      • I’ve never seen this but that intro is a smooth jam.

        • Apparently composed by Don Felder of The Eagles. The more I know.

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            HAHAHA oh shit dude, I never knew that! #toiletofknowledge

          • Cock ov Steele

            Hey I can cheese to this.

    • W.

      As one gentleman in the comments opined, “This should have absolutely no effect on my life whatsoever but still makes me kind of sad…”

      • KJM

        Nailed it.

    • W.

      I think some of my fondest Saturday morning cartoon moments were waking up way too early to watch Beast Wars and Reboot.

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      That is quite depressing actually. I used to love waking up early on Saturday mornings and go sit right in front of the one TV in the house with a big bowl of cereal and watch all the cartoons I could before my older sister or parents woke up and changed the channel.

      • That was the way it worked in my household. I woke up at the crack of dawn to cram in way too much television. Then my sisters would change the channel to the EDUCATIONAL TEEN dramas. Still have a soft spot for Saved By the Bell and California Dreams.

        • KJM

          Truly, this was the best part of being an only child.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      Nooooooooo!

    • JWG

      Fortunately, I still have ‘Teletoon Retro’ to remind me of Saturday mornings of my childhood.

      …Usually on in the late evening, mind you, but they’re still there.

      And every other weekend usually includes a 12-hour marathon of one of them. Spending an entire Saturday in your pyjamas watching Dexter’s Lab (admittedly well past my childhood, but still, it’s too good) or Animaniacs should not feel like a waste of time, at *any* age.

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    “The Rule still applies — no Maiden, cheaters!” FUCK YOU! I AM NOT A NUMBER!-I AM A FREE MAN!!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is2nSoqFRHU

    • Scrimm

      You got my vote.

    • David Vincent’s Spandex Shirt

      This and Killers, tied for two of Maiden’s most ripping solos.

    • Cock ov Steele

      If only I knew there was gonna be a solo of the week, that was pretty much the reason I posted this one.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      The Prisoner was a great TV show.and I love this song.

  • Death

    This week I have been mainly listening to calm music. My song of the week comes from (the better) Ghost. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BYb8LZTe2s

    • Guacamole Jim

      This is good!!

      • Death

        Probably my favourite Japanese band, with Sigh coming in as a strong second.

        • Guacamole Jim

          This probably won’t be super popular with the Toilet, but I really love The GazettE. They’re poppy and nu-metaly, but they’ve got a killer sound and lots of energy. Not as chill as what you’ve got there, but while we’re on the topic of Japanese bands…

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iM-RJl2DQc

          • Death

            Not really my kind of stuff, but good for you on not being afraid of the hate. Also, here’s another song that I love by Ghost. It’s more upbeat and psychedelic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnLUM44Jnuo

  • Ellipsis

    I also thought of Hypno5e and their side project A Backward Glance… but couldn’t find out where the samples are from. Anyone know? It’s being annoying me all week…

    http://www.youtube.com/?#/watch?v=PgW0Ypc7voM

  • FeelTheDarkness
  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Looking good so far for Meehan, as I predicted of course. And rightfully so!

    Vote Cryptopsy! Vote Edward Meehan! Do it, or Lord Worm himself will come into your home and force-feed you live worms until you choke to death! …not really, but still… CRYPTOPSY!!!

  • oooh I like the idea of solo of the week.

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      I might actually get off my lazy ass and submit one for the solo of the week. Got a couple really good ones in mind…

      • Howard Dean

        I already have my solo picked. Objectively speaking, it may be the best solo ever played in a metal track. I look forward to seeing motherfuckers getting slayed by its awesomeness.

        • W.

          There are so many good solos coming to mind. I really don’t know which to choose.

          • Howard Dean

            I knew which one I wanted to pick immediately, even though it’s not likely to win. There were several more popular/visible/excitable solos I could pick, but the one I’m going to unleash is a little known gem from an unlikely source that absolutely kills. The solo of the week is going to be exciting. I can’t wait!

  • It’s a Jarassic park sample In a mastodon song. Plus it was in Tony Hawk underground that’s gotta count for something. http://youtu.be/zelLBnqcvzY

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      Can’t argue with that.

    • Mother Shabubu III

      And then they became the Foo Fighters of sludge metal…

      • W.

        I’m glad this is a thing.

        • Mother Shabubu III

          It’s just so accurate, sadly.

        • Max

          The twerking video is awesome! And I couldn’t get the song out of my head for days.

      • Jöhnny Crünch™

        Why would you say such horrible things?

        • Mother Shabubu III

          Because the truth is horrible. I didn’t say I didn’t like the music still.

    • DoYouThinkHeSaurus

      I bring scientists. You bring a rockstar.

  • David Vincent’s Spandex Shirt

    Does anything Trey touch count as cheating?

    • W.

      Illud Divinum Insanus is most assuredly not cheating.

  • Guacamole Jim

    I want to vote for Randall Thor just because of that description; too bad power metal is for jive ass suckas. Nope, Stockhausen gets my vote this week, with an H.M. to papa Joe for continually providing me with sick ass shit that I immediately download.

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      Power Trip is awesome. Awesome live too.

      • Probably my favorite current band. Last time I saw them kids were setting off fireworks in the pit.

        • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

          Srs question: any other specific criteria for solo of the week other than no Iron Maiden? Like, must be actual songs, not 20 minute shred-fest instrumentals by YngVai Satrianasteen?

          • Actual songs, please. One of the biggest things with ROTW is that people probably won’t vote for you if your selection is too long.

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Ok good. Thanks, Papa Joe!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Is Van Halen allowed? I was wondering considering you said no Maiden.

          • Scrimm

            Those two names should never be mentioned in the same sentence.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I wasn’t meaning to mention them in the same sentence. I just wanted to know if Van Halen was or was not allowed.

          • Scrimm

            I know man just joking.

          • KJM

            IMO Hendrix should also be considered cheating.

    • Stockhausen

      I love you too, Guacamole Jim!

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Akercocke had a cool/creepy intro on their Choronzon album from the film of the same name I believe. The girl’s terrified screams at 1:40 alert the listener to the hellish terror that is this album. A criminally underrated album by a band that’s sorely missed in today’s underground.
    http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=ZSr_gcuwDHo

    • W.

      Their guitarist previously flayed in The Berzerker.

      • Cock ov Steele

        You mean he totally slayed!

        • W.

          I’m sticking with flayed.

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        Indeed. The Bezerker was always a strange band. Remember when they wore those weird masks?

        • Death
          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            The drum machine just makes my head hurt after a few songs. It’s like Luke K. programmed them during an ear infection, after doing an 8ball of coke. Fastfastfastfast-repeat, with obnoxious snare and cymbal tones that annoy moreso than impress. Personal opinion, of course. I do enjoy a few Berzerker tracks, I just get tired of that damn drum machine after a few songs.

          • Death

            Don’t they claim that their drummer is the fastest drummer ever?

          • W.

            Not sure about that, but I don’t think they used the drum machine on every album.

          • Death

            “Rumours abound about whether or not The Drummer held or broke the Guinness World Record for being the fastest drummer, but this was pure fabrication on the part of internet users. Not only was there no proof of him reaching the alleged speeds (19 bps per hand), but even if he had done them, without an adjudicator the record wouldn’t have stood anyway.”

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            The Metal Archives says that every album except for 2002’s Dissimulate had programmed drums by Luke K.

          • W.

            I stand corrected. I default to your expertise and beg forgiveness.

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Haha I wasn’t correcting you, I was curious myself so I clicked over to the Archives to check it out.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Voices, the band half of Akercocke is today, isn’t too bad either even if they don’t exactly fill the void this leaves.

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        Haven’t heard of them, will have to check them out. Thanks!

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      the COCKE ROCK. cool acoustic intro to well made truly interesting video.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzdFTth68pM

    • The Satan Ov Hell

      I just want to say, a pop up ad came up for me, that made me cringe into all-hells. “METALHEAD DATING, MEET THAT SPECIAL THRASHER” uuuhuhuhrrrgh

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        Flush that. You need to get some Ad-Block bro.

        • The Satan Ov Hell

          I do have adblock, but sometimes it breaks through.

      • Scrimm

        I got that surfing on my phone. That bitch was uuuugly.

    • DR. FREUDSTEIN

      Listening to akercocke once a day keeps the doctor at bay.

  • crazytaco_12

    Fuck, once again, a tough choice. Still debating but probably voting Joe since that’s one of the most effective and tension building samples that’s been used to come to an immediate blast right when the music hits, and I love Power Trip. I didn’t submit mine just cause I figured there’d be a ton of submissions. This song came straight to mind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSQ7blbcjh4

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      Dat riff!! m/

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      You should have submitted. This be a killer

  • Mother Shabubu III

    Dubya had it until I saw Ellipsis’ pick.

    • W.

      🙁

      Then again, I can never fault anyone for choosing NIN. <3 Reznor

      • Mother Shabubu III

        Reznor is such a good song builder.

        And sorry, but this isn’t Florida. Can’t rig the Terlet.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Scrimm takes this by the hair

    • Death

      But… but Brutal Truth man.

      • W.

        • Death

          It already happened once.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            It can happen again. Putin is going to enforce such action

          • Death

            Bought some putin cheese today. It’s nice and cheap.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Yeah, I’ve got half a fridge full o’ them. and some butter too. Really the best thing he’s ever given to us

          • Death

            Thank you based Putin!

          • Guacamole Jim

            This conversation feels like it’s imaginary.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Imaginary people from imaginary land having an imaginary conversation. It adds up

          • Death

            Wait, you see our conversation? You must be a lunatic.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            He must be the man who’s imagination we were born from

          • Death

            This is getting pretty deep. Hit the blunt!

            You should, Thompson was the sheit

          • Death

            Still not caring.

            well whoop dee doo

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Reminds me of “Whoop de doo Basil what does it all mean”

            Note to self: watch Austin Powers

          • W.

            I remember thinking Goldmember was the funniest movie ever made when I first saw it.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            It was fun at first, but I was so young when I saw it. I still like International Man of Mystery, but the others not so much anymore. Can’t quite put my finger on why though

          • W.

            The movies got much more self-referential and broke the the 4th wall a ton by the time Goldmember was released.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            They made a good movie out of it too

          • KJM

            And not the one with Johnny Depp either.

            That one with JD is good too

            OH BOY, I’M STILL NOT CARING.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I see you cannot be converted, infidel

          • KJM

            Damn son, even going all caps. Who pissed in your corn flakes today?

          • Death

            I don’t even eat corn flakes.

          • KJM

            Good, more for me then. NYAH.

          • Death

            You gonna put those drugs in them?

          • KJM

            Nah, I’m sure the milk and cereal have enough already.

          • KJM

            One of the greatest writers who ever lived, certainly more worthy of note than some shitty derivative rock band.

            Lady Luck is a fickle mistress

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        Death hates ELP but loves the fourth rate Yes ripoff Starcastle.

        #DeathFax

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          If he loves Yes he must love Starcastle

          Starcastle = Yes performed by lesser musicians

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I tried listening to Starcastle yesterday and it was very bad. I couldn’t find whole albums so I had to go listen to whatever songs were on Youtube. I’m listening to their recorded output on Spotify and it sounds just like Yes combined with the vocal harmonies of Crosby Stills Nash and Young.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            They have one listenable song, the rest should never be mentioned again

        • Death

          Nope. I don’t like Starcastle. You Americans rarely make good prog rock. Leave it to us Europeans (except for ELP).

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            America made Kansas and Fireballet. Fireballet is good music to get high to, almost as good as ELP when it comes to getting high and listening to some music.

    • Scrimm

      Thank you. That sample works on many levels.

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        An unintentionally comedic movie, and I’m gonna say underrated because nobody takes a minute of it seriously(and I didn’t recognize that quote…). Opening a pummeling song from an underrated band, Grave is awesome. Although it was a close one.

        • Scrimm

          There are several good choices this week.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            I follow the tall man into the Grave. This actually was one of the first death metal cd’s i bought along with benediction transcend the rubicon.

          • Scrimm

            I knew I could count on you. I love transcend the rubicon too.

      • W.

        Ya done good, Scrimm!

        • Scrimm

          I didn’t even have to think about my choice.

  • The Satan Ov Hell
    • Death

      Not really a Judas Priest fan, except for this album.

      • The Satan Ov Hell

        This album is still one of the best releases out there in my opinion, the riffing is gold, the drums are great, solos are powerful and the whole album is uplifting.

        • Death

          Ave Satanas!

        • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

          My favorite Judas Priest release. Arguably the most quintessentially “METAL” album in the whole genre to this day.
          Unflushable. Period.

        • Max

          “Battle Hymn / One Shot at Glory” rules all.

      • Max

        Really a Judas Priest fan, including this album.

      • Virgil the Ghost Poet

        Jimmy and I was talking yesterday and we were wandering if you like The Legendary Pink Dots?

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        Priest peaked with screaming, and everything since defenders has been a slow slide into irrelevance. The first fight album was good, mainly because rob copied cowboys from hell.

        • Scrimm

          I really liked War of Words.

        • W.

          I didn’t mind The Final Frontier. Some of the songs were a bit too long, though.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I think that it was well received here in Finland as they pretty much sold out a stadium for a gig where they mostly played TFF

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          I enjoyed Nostradamus for some odd reason. Even though it was insanely long the title track was amazing and most of the songs weren’t half bad.

  • Death

    I liked Vital Remains more before Strawberry Cupcakes (also known as Glen Benton) joined it.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Good then that he’s out and won’t ruin the upcoming album

      • Death

        If it ever comes out.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          You may have to excuse me and escort me out surrounded by police, but I’ll say I won’t consider a great loss even if it doesn’t

          Also, how good is Godflesh’s Selfless srsly

          • Death

            They’ve lived past their prime time. I think that Forever Underground is their best album.

            Haven’t heard Selfless myself, but I do love Streetcleaner.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I love most of their albums and dislike the fact that half of their fans and listeners seem to hate Selfless/LoveandHate and Hymns whereas I like them all. Selfless is maybe their best although Pure slays as well

          • Death

            Gonna have to give it a listen. Are you excited about their new album?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Fairly. Decline&Fall was only okay. Like a slightly more organic Streetcleaner. Out of the two songs NDA was the same as D&F but The Imperator was Pure (pun so totally intended) murder

          • Death

            I’m hoping that it will be good. We’ll see this coming week. I’ve now listened to a bit of Selfless and am liking it. I can see why some people would not like it. Some early Jesu reminds me of this album.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’d say it was definitely just constant evolution one LP at a time from Godflesh to Jesu, so seamless

          • Death
          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’ve only heard later Jesu and didn’t much like but a quick glance to this has forced me to reconsider

          • Death

            Heart Ache/Dethroned is a pretty good one. It’s Jesus’s early ep.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            This actually sounds to me more like streetcleaner than say hymns, not bad at all

          • Death

            It starts heavy, but gets softer and more atmospheric later on.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Kind of reminds me of how Swans went from dirt through Jarboe era to Angels of Light and then to new Swans. And they were one of Broadrick’s bigger influences. I wonder if he actually had his career planned out exactly like this in the start

            Hail Illuminati!

          • Death

            I saw a triangle in there!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            And get this. Godflesh-Jesu-Godflesh
            Swans-Angels-Swans. Three points that close to form a triangle!!!!!

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I enjoy earlier Jesu better the self titled, Silver, and The Conqueror!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Also I think the hatred is partially credible to songs of… not only being influenced by hip-hop (absolutely no connections to Nu-metal but people may have thought so) but it was remixed and dubbed (another pun intended) Songs off…in dub, people just can’t get over them

          • Death

            Definitely because they don’t sound like Streetcleaner.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Yeah, the early Pitshifter is much more SC like than later Godflesh

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Most people around her don’t like Pitchshifter.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I don’t either, except maybe for their debut which is a semi-solid slab of Streetcleaner worship

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I can’t stand his hip hop bands Blood of Heroes and Techno Animal.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’ve not made acquaintance with them yet

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I like the original version of Hymns better than the remake. Did you here the re-ralese?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I have not heard anything but the original

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I’ve read where Justin was forced to hire a producer who mixed it wrong. The reissue has a different mix and a bonus disc. Its great in all but I really liked the first mix. Also I would stay away from his hip hop bands.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu
          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            This and Rats are my two favorite Godflesh songs. 1 billion up votes for you, but since your imaginary…. It doesn’t matter!!!!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            It saddens me not to be real right naow.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Me too. I’m to old to have an imaginary friend.

          • W.

            I actually really like the song Flowers. It’s got a very different feel to it.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Selfless is one of my favorite Godflesh albums.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      There is a direct correlation between arguably the best death metal album of all time (dechristianize , this is a sentiment shared by many) having vocals by benton (who i despise). Icons of evil is almost as good. They are like the star wars & empire strikes back of OSDM albums)
      Both vital remains and benton benefit from this unique collaboration. It’s the best of both worlds.

  • Stockhausen

    Everyone who didn’t vote for Brain Famine hates good things. Although W. and Masterlord have killer submissions.

          This is where a war starts!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            The war between us began with three letters: ELP.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Hi Jim.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I’ve seen Rush before and I do like buying Rush merchandise. I will check it out.

  • Squibble Skwonk

    Forgot about Skinless. “Trample” was one of the first legitimate metal albums I listened to. Supposedly they’re finally making a new album.

    • Howard Dean

      They are making a new album. They’ve said they have been writing new stuff for the past year or so, and I think they are going to record it soon. Last I heard it was going to be a 2015 release.

  • NefariousDude

    Power trip for the win

  • old_man_doom

    Good to see a little Acid Witch here.

  • Simon Phoenix

    Edward gets this one from me.

    If my criminal ass wasn’t so lazy, this would’ve been my submission. A quote from one of my favorite exploitation films ever to lead in to one of the most putrid goregrind songs ever concocted.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      My cousin had the actual skin affliction called impetigo. Luckily it wasn’t life threatening but i always laugh when i see this band name.

  • JWG

    I’ve read the article and Comment section as carefully as possible, but I don’t see this, which i would have thought to be a shoo-in for somebody’s selection:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BF8rSHz_oHM

    I do not subscribe to any ideology that would consciously use the term “siqq”. But this album is SICK. As in “don’t eat while you listen to this (or look at the artwork) or you’ll blow chunks”.

    Side note. Just typing that made me think of Wayne’s World, and its most important nugget of romantic advice: “If you blow chunks and she comes back, she’s yours. But if you spew and she bolts, then it was never meant to be.”

    • W.

      I thought about Body Farm.

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    Here’s my riff. It’s a cover of Love, Reign O’er Me by Pearl Jam that is visceral and really jams. Eddie Vedder does such a great job singing this song.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YO31Vgrr3oM

    • Scrimm

      Pearl Jam and great singing? Sorry, fraid not.

      • Virgil the Ghost Poet

        I actually enjoy Eddie’s singing. I am not the biggest Pearl Jam fan I do love Vitalogy though.

        • Scrimm

          I have a hard time with most “clean” vocalists anyway, and being a metal fan in high school at the height of the grunge scene probably made me hate it all even more.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I preferred industrial music around that time.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I consider Pearl Jam the only good grunge act. They may have gotten worse over time but they are still much better than any of the other big grunge artists. Their live album they did with Neil Young was amazing.

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    Prog riff of the week from your friend Janitor Jim: This is an instrumental by Camel that really jams. It sounds very good and proggy and the people know what they’re doing.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNBzXkgcKEw

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Camel is one the best prog bands ever!!!!!!

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        They are amazing. Mirage and The Snow Goose are two of my favorite prog albums that aren’t by ELP.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          How do like Emerson, Lake and Powell? Snow Goose was the first prog album I bought

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I love it. I have a copy of it on vinyl and it is really good compared to other attempts for prog artists to go pop.

  • Jointsalot

    Awesome, Solo of the week. Site keeps getting better and better
