This New Music Roundup has a theme: music I was late to the party on. If you’re reading this website (spoiler: you are) you’ll be able to impress your friends and neighbors with your extensive knowledge of dissonant death metal, brutal death metal, black metal, and instrumental post-black metal. Don’t be like Edward. Stay up to date on all the hot new song streams and upcoming album release dates in a single post. Be forewarned: this post contains a lot of opinions.


Imperial Triumphant are a band I recently discovered, and boy was I glad I did. Some time last year, I remember coming across their page on Metal Archives because they share two members with Pyrrhon, who released my favorite album of last year. I meant to check them out but then I listened to ten other things instead. The world kept turning. Decibel recently premiered a track from Imperial Triumphant called “Dead Heaven” which I heard – and which I flipped for. Imperial Triumphant self-label as a black metal band. They were labeled by Decibel as “urban black metal”, whatever the heck that means. They have been promoted by friends and New York colleagues as a black metal band. What I heard in “Dead Heaven” was a tasty slice of dissonant death metal, more tech-y and less vile than brother band Pyrrhon. I went through their back catalog, and began emailing my friends and colleagues in an effort to get to the bottom of the Imperial Triumphant black metal conspiracy.

During that time “Krokodil” hit the web. “Krokodil” made me (ever so slightly) consider my campaign to get this story straight. This song features a slow-building, dramatic introduction and riffs that straddle the fence between rapid black metal and angular dissonant death. Black metal, or not, I’m pumped to hear Abyssal Gods in full and I suspect it could place come EOTY time. You can stream “Krokodil” below (insert krokodil face-melting reference).

Abyssal Gods will be released on Aural Music/Code 666 on March 10th, 2015.


Defeated Sanity released Passages Into Deformity in 2013, to much fanfare and acclaim. It even landed spots on a couple of best of 2013 year end lists. The homey Tyree (the Grindprophet) alerted us to a premier of a new Defeated Sanity song on Tuesday. This song “Generosity of the Deceased” is Defeated Sanity’s half of a recently released 7″ split with Mortal Decay. This track finds Defeated Sanity continuing in excellence after Passages Into Deformity. In my mind this is brutal death metal done right – you can flush a lot of these other brutal death metal poser hacks. Pay special attention to the break at 1:29. You can stream “Generosity of the Deceased” below.

 

This split comes out in anticipation of Defeated Sanity’s fifth full length album due out some time in 2015. Defeated Sanity have described the album as a “split with themselves“. I have to admit, at first I was skeptical. After hearing “Generosity of the Deceased”, I can’t wait to hear their next album. The last official statement from the band estimated a summer of 2015 release for this yet untitled album on Willowtip Records.


This next bit of news comes to us from Toilet Ov Hell regular Celtic Frosty. It’s exciting news for music that isn’t exactly “new”. USBM favorite Yellow Eyes released their cassette only release Stillicide digitally on Bandcamp this week. This was very exciting news for me for two reasons: I don’t own a cassette player lol, and Yellow Eyes is a band that shows great promise and tremendous potential. I can confidently say Stillicide (and The Desert Mourns) show Yellow Eyes releasing their finest work to date, despite both albums each being a two track EP. Stillicide features gorgeous tremolo picking, smart changes in tempo, and catchy melodies. It’s also mixed in a way that allows the riffs, drums, and harsh screams all room to be heard. I could keep fanboying the fuck out on this one but you should just stream these two tracks below, or head over to that Bandcamp to pick it up for $5.00.


In 2013, a then little-known band called Sannhet released their debut album and captured the attention of the metal blogosphere almost overnight. Known Flood showcased a band expertly playing math-y instrumental post-black metal. I have never been super interested in instrumental music. I mostly passed on instrumental hip hop during a lifetime of underground hip hop fandom, I don’t know shit about jazz, and while I like a bit of Pelican and Russian Circles they aren’t often the first things I’m going to jam. Sannhet surprised me with their debut. Admittedly I was late to that party, partly because they are an instrumental band, but I knew they were on to something special the first time I played Known Flood.

I have been eagerly anticipating the followup to Known Flood in 2015’s Revisionist. My colleague Christian emailed me to let me know they had released the first track from this year’s upcoming album. We chatted about it and shared opinions. Don’t go breaking my heart now, Sannhet. Their second single from Revisionist seemed more promising, and remember I hadn’t heard either in the context of the album.

Pitchfork Media’s Brandon Stosuy landed an interview with Sannhet, and they have an exclusive full album stream of Revisionist. You can read the interview and stream the album here. PR for the album compared it to Deafheaven and Alcest; there is definitely a buildup on these songs approaching Deafheaven territory that I didn’t catch on Known Flood. Check out the album – let us know how you think it stacks up against Sannhet’s debut.

Revisionist comes out on The Flenser on March 3rd, 2015.

    Dammit, I’m now aware that I’m breathing.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      It’s actually something (breathing) that a lot of people forget to pay attention to.

      • Scrimm

        It;s amazing how fast people forget to breath in certain situations. Hand to hand combat training comes to mind.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          It’s in those type of situations where it is most important, but/and it can also very important in day to day living and destressing, things like that.

          • Scrimm

            Don’t I know it. Actually all that stuff taught me that even in situations of general stress, a lot of people start to breath irregularly and how much it can amplify those feelings. I pay attention to it a lot more now. Plus I enjoy breathing a lot more now that I don’t smoke ūüėČ

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            A buddy of mine always has his e-cig with him so I’m back on that game whenever I see that guy. Not a good thing. Lol.

          • Scrimm

            I’m lucky that never appealed to me.

          • Man, the bad habits you learn you have when someone punches you in the face the first time…

            Grappling is the worst. the first time I sparred in Jiu Jitsu I almost died.

          • I did jiu-jitsu for a couple weeks and I was amazed how bad I was at it.

          • Scrimm

            My coaches were so pissed when I quit, but between reviving a band and my dad being sick I had to make a choice. I miss it though.

  • Scrimm

    That Defeated Sanity is Killer. There are a lot of good BDM bands out there nowadays.

    • Tyreeling In The Years

      I think it’s awesome that they are getting so much attention (They Deserve it!). What is also killer is that their drummer doesn’t trigger his drums, at least not any more. He almost has a jazzy style to his death metal playing. I know it sounds odd, but it kind of is. Dude is a beast!

      • those drums really stand out. and i’m not a drummer or nuthin’

      • oh hey question: why do so many bands use drum triggers when the general consensus seems to be that they’re un-trill?

        • Guacamole Jim

          It’s easier to produce a “good” sound with triggers, easier to edit in Pro Tools, easier to be consistent as far as dynamics go (especially when playing extreme music).

          • Tyreeling In The Years

            I think the first demo I did with my band, we sampled my kick. It sounds a lot cleaner, but it just sounds too mechanical. I really was not feeling it. I’d rather have feeling and range to the drum hits.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus
        • Tyreeling In The Years

          Fuck, I want to see this movie so bad.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus
          • J.K. Simmons is pretty much the reason why I want to see this.

          • Tyreeling In The Years

            Exactly.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            He picked up a well deserved Oscar for his performance. I’m cool with the Birdman Best Picture award as well. Nightcrawler got shafted on nominations though.

          • Tyreeling In The Years

            Nothing for Under The Skin too.

          • I have yet to see any of those movies but I’ve heard everyone saying Gyllenhaal should have won something for Nightcrawler.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Bingo. He picked up nods and wins from a lot of the smaller movie awards things.

          • Tyreeling In The Years

            So many movies to watch still. Music, Movies, Writing, designing, work. Too much going on!!!

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Oscar for Largest Face? Seriously his face is enormous.

          • Tyreeling In The Years

            Maybe this weekend. Although I need to watch the farwell episode of Parks and Rec and catch up on Better Call Saul.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I watched that fourth Better Call Saul yesterday. Dug it!

          • yeah this movie ruled. there were scenes more intense than many action flicks!

        • Based Tapir

          Not quite my tempo.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Nieman, you earned the part. Alternates, will you clean the blood off my drum set?

      • Scrimm

        He is a favorite of mine. I love the two snare thing too.

    • It’s hard to say what exactly makes a brutal death metal band good or band, but Defeated Sanity definitely fall on the ‘good’ end of the spectrum.

      • Scrimm

        It kind of is. I guess it’s that intangible they got it or they don’t.

  • VVayne Brady

    Urban is usually a euphemism for black in advertising parlance.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      … like African American? I think that’s right but I doubt Decibel used it in the same way.

      • VVayne Brady

        Yes. But yah, Decibel was probably not trying to say that.

    • So they’re black black metal? Ed’s panties are already in a twist.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        I appreciate that no one has come out saying obviously this is a black metal band, Edward, but I was kind of hoping someone would, since I have ears and sensibilities.

        • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

          Obviously this is a black metal band, Jedward.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            Srs, it’s kinda not though.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I’m saying! I legitimately emailed more than one person and was like what is this charade?!

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            Although I guess the feeling of dissonance actually (unbelievably) works against the feeling of black metal.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Their previous material (what I heard after I heard “Dead Heaven”) sounds more to like rapidly played dissonant death metal than black metal honestly. I’m always down with bands self-labeing, and I’m not a staunch defender of what it and what isn’t black metal (srs) but I just don’t hear what everyone else is hearing when I listen to this stuff over and over. It could also have something to do with the tight pants I and Toilet Ov Hell have had over dissonant death as a subgenre since this site started and with last year’s great releases…

            It was 3 AM. I woke up in a cold sweat. My hear was racing, and I felt an oppressive pain on my chest. Also oppressed was my mind, as I awoke due to a myriad of tribulations skirmishing my brain.

            I jump out of the bed with the resolve of a man that is out to seek the truth about his condition.

    Imperial Triumphant is my personal favorite. Only because of the music. No other correlation…Hail Void.

  • Tyreeling In The Years

    Imperial Triumphant = Incredibly Awesome

    Defeated Sanity = Incredibly Brutal

    Yellow Eyes = I still have to listen

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Don’t sleep on Yellow Eyes Tyree!

    • Scrimm

      I was so dissapointed at first yesterday when you posted DS cause I thought it was a sample for the new album at first. Then I listened and didn’t care.

    • Sannhet = incredibly…eh.

      • Tyreeling In The Years

        That’s how I felt with Yellow Eyes past stuff. I’ll try it out here though.

        • I loved Silence Threads the Evening’s Cloth and Hammer of the Night but I’m not sure yet how this stacks up.

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        Man you guys are weird. Sannhet and Yellow Eyes are the only listenable choices for me. I’m so uncvlt.

        • You just have terrible taste and we can never be friends, it’s okay.

          • YourLogicIsFlushed

            Hey I liked that one thing you posted at some point. Once.

    • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

      Yellow Eyes was SO good. First song anyways.

    • Lacertilian

      Can I get a drummer’s opinion (specifically yours) on the drum sound used on Defeated Sanity?

  • Reposted Avenged Sevenfold Fan

    my favorite band(s) are Avenged Sevenfold, Five Finger Deth Punch, Disturbed, and Escape the Fate.
    my favorite songs from Metallica are Enter Sandman, Fuel, and The Unforgiven.

          • omg.. Death Metal Underground >:(

            #AngryLink

          • I could go there and look for obscure gems in old death and black metal, but that would mean scrolling through pages and pages of snobbery and verbal fellatio before I found anything useful.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            It was on http://www.deathmetal.org and had a very gruesome header image.

          • Ah, I see it now. A woman, too! Gotta keep those who aren’t desensitized out of the boys club.

          • OMG, WHY DID THEY PUT THAT GORY PHOTO ON THAT POST?!

          • They think it makes them tough and cool to post shock images, like when 4chan goes on a raid.

          • THAT’S SO BAD. NOW THEY MADE ME MORE ANGRY AND SAD T-T

          • Remember that next time you see people complaining about feminism and political correctness and all that jazz. This is who they are.

          • Nordling Writes ov USBM

            Not each and everyone of them, not in all situations at least. Let’s not lump them all into the same pile.

          • They’re the heart of the push back (or reaction, rather) though, at least in nerd circles.

          • Nordling Writes ov USBM

            In honesty, I agree with your statement mostly.

          • And as long as those people keep shitting up the conversation, there will be no honest-to-goodness dialogue on the whole topic.

          • Akerskronks ov Steele

            Holy shit, I totally found that article today searching google images for something kinda unrelated. Quite the coincidink.

          • Also, holy shit, how many articles did those morons write?

          • Wow. If only their site used Disqus… #notallcoalrollers

          • When you put it that way, it makes me very sad.

          • Looks like those two were written by the same wiener. It appears that he mad.

          • Akerskronks ov Steele

            Death Metal underground is full of assholes who still take Satanism seriously or talk about how Jews are secretly destroying the world. And they don’t like kids or newbies into their beloved scene THEY WERE THERE WHEN IT WAS TRVE. (The jew thing was between a commentor and an author, author believes it was some Jews that started problems but would rather get to the bottom of a problem then think that everyone should get punished. So it’s really just the commentors)

          • hard lol at a bunch of dorks that think listening to a genre of music makes them dark and evil.

          • Akerskronks ov Steele

            “I listen to death metal, no wimpy posers please, also gubberment is controlling society, fuck ur god, hail satin m/”

          • Akerskronks ov Steele

            “‚ĶMike Browning‚Äôs cyborg has failed us. By killing Jesus (the most metal thing ever) but allowing metal music to go unchecked, metal adopted christ-like figures and agendas (Gojira‚Äôs whale saving adventures/Steve Rowe urging people not to communicate with dead spirits because it might upset ‚ÄúGod‚ÄĚ in the liner notes to Scrolls of the Megilloth). The vicious cycle. Mike Browning! Punch Trey in the face and talk some sense into him. We must allow Marduk and Cthulhu to awaken from their ancient slumber and separate the wheat from the chaff. That means Disco Ds fetish wear/Rob Zombie days are over and then, a new beginning‚Ķ”

            Sort of in relation to what you’re saying, sort of not, but it’s amazing to me sometimes working on a golf course for all the fucked up, unintentional symbolism I see on a day to day basis.

        • In all honesty. I tried three times to understand this #SomethingGateBlahBlahBlah trend and couldn’t understood it because language barrier.

          I give up on trying to understand that. It’s a really foreigner practice to me, I think.

          • All you need to know is that it’s a load of bullshit by white male nerds (with a few “useful idiot” women and nonwhites) afraid that there’s a secret cabal of SJWs looking to control the world and castrate all the men. If that sounds ridiculous and stupid to you, that’s because it is.

            *turns off internet

          • Yes.
            So anything you see about GamerGate is a direct result of this. Same with MetalGate, when GamerGaters tried to get the metal community up in arms against the “SJWs,” because apparently we’re being infiltrated by “hipsters” or some such BS. The only website I know of that bought into it was Death Metal Underground.

            And also keep in mind that GamerGate is supported by Stormfront, A Voice For Men, Roosh V (who is a rapist), and that one of GG’s main centers of activity, 8chan, has a board dedicated solely to doxxing people and was popped for hosting child porn.

          • Count_Breznak

            If americans try to justify mindless fits on (social) media, they call it “…-gate”. It mostly involves something they perceive as amoral or sexual, with the exception of weapons. It is about a lot of screaming, typing in allcaps, and the misuse of (pseudo) latin or greek words which meaning eludes them (or might even change along the way). And pointing fingers, as far away from themselves as possible. No one ever actually does anything, and a few month onward the next -gate comes along.

            In short: A good show for everyone not involved, and in no way related to Watergate.

    • LMAO. Did it really stick? Now I feel bad.

  • I like your writing, Ed!

    Imperial Triumph is very very very dissonant and corrosive! ._.) But it could be a soundtrack of my country right now, I think…

    Defeated Sanity: good slam. Haven’t listened a good slam since Disentomb. The drumming is very thight and the production is very warm.

    Yellow Eyes: black merol with räwr räwr shouted shrieks with good progressions in the chords, but not my style.

    Sanhet: this is a very dark and heavy post style. I can dig this.

      • Paris Hilton

      • Dagon

        Cultural marxism is actually a huge fucking truth if you think about it.

        I can’t decide who’s the biggest villain, though. Marx or Keynes?

        • Huge truth? The people throwing “cultural marxism” around think it’s mind control via political correctness.

          • Dagon

            It’s the same reason a lot of peope give Libertarianism crap without actually thinking about it. It’s easy to dismiss an idea that is fairly accurate due to its supporters sounding like insane conspiracy theorists.

          • I think there is a big gulf between our two countries in the politics that are in power. Here, Libertarianism has many proponents in gov’t and it is kinda horrifying to see it in practice.

          • Dagon

            Do you have examples? I’d be really interested in reading about it.

          • KJM

            Just Google “Ron Paul” + “National Review” and that will tell you everything you need to know about US Libertarians.

          • Dagon

            Honestly, if you refer to his policies on international relationships (not sure how to say this in English) I actually think Ron Paul is kind of naive in thinking that removing all military intervention would magically solve conflicts.

          • KJM

            I agree, but he’s not antiwar because of any kind of pacifistic or diplomatic views, he just doesn’t like how it’s paid for. If warfare were privately financed, he wouldn’t care either way.

          • I think one of the worst recent examples I can think of is the BP oil spill in the gulf of Mexico. This was an environmental catastrophe, full stop. There were a number of Libertarian types who tried to downplay the impact because of their laissez faire attitudes about business regulations (i.e. do whatever you want, that’s how the market should work). Dudes like Joe Barton and Rand Paul were actively trying to stop from levying penalties against BP for their negligence and destruction of the environment.

          • KJU’s Breakdancing Bodybags

            Gotta love those commercials BP still plays to this day, trying to come off as if they took care of the disaster on their own free/good will. They ran to the government asking for them to pay for the cleanup, and Obama told ’em to go fuck themselves. Fuck BP up the asshole with a cold steel dildo, then break it off and beat ’em with the rest of it.
            Oh, and as per the commercials where they keep talking about how they’re dedicated to paying back the residents and businesses (which, again, the government ordered them to do):

            http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/08/09/bp-delaying-payment-claims-oil-spill_n_676493.html

          • Dagon

            I see what you mean. Here is where full-blown Libertarianism loses me: I see a lot of people, specially the younger ones, applying extreme Rand “selfishness” to everything, and that’s not how it’s supposed to work. It’s not “fuck everyone, I’m all about myself” and that misconception kills me.

            Everyone should still be accountable of their mistakes.

          • KJM

            This is the guiding principle of US Libertarianism(i.e. “I’ve got mine, fuck you”), no recognition whatsoever that we’re all in this together.

          • Dagon

            That’s a misconception. Unfortunately, a common one, even among supporters.

            It’s about choice. It is more about taking matters into our own hands, solving issues in a local scale instead of delegating it to central planning. You can be an asshole if you want and if you don’t hurt anybody, obviously. But if you want, you can also help whomever you desire.

            What I’m trying to say is that individualism does not imply selfishness or a lack of compassion. They are not the same.

          • KJM

            Sorry, but taking matters into your own hands for anything larger than personal issues seems more like vigilantism and isolationism to me. There’s only so much individuals can accomplish on their own.

            However, I do have days when I think The US would be better off as 50 separate countries than one big one so perhaps there’s something to it. We’ll just have to agree to disagree on the rest(offers bowl).

          • KJU’s Breakdancing Bodybags

            That’s the Dems and especially the Republicans as well. Communism is on an even more extreme scale of that. In and of itself, Communism is a fantastic idea, but extremely open to corruption. By actual definition, there are no truly communist countries in the world, not since Tito died.

          • KJU’s Breakdancing Bodybags

            I rarely agree with much of anything Obama’s done (same with politicians in general), but people fail to mention how, when BP came crying to the government to pay for the cleanup, he laid the smack down.
            Can’t forget too how Rand Paul also tried halting any compensation to the businesses that were hit by it, or flat out put out of business, some of them after several generations of operation.

          • KJM

            Libertarians are a bunch of spoiled little middle class white boys who want civilization without paying for it and shit themselves whenever a person of color looks at them funny. Fuck them.

          • Nordling Writes ov USBM

            Libertarianism being an umbrella term has manifested as both shit and good amongst the people I have been acquainted with and nations I have looked into.

          • Dagon

            You can write a paragraph like that for any existing political alignment.

          • Over here most libertarians are insane conspiracy theorists or me-first rich dudes.

          • Dagon

            And Republicans are old southern Jesus freaks and Liberals are bleeding heart college kids who think they’re able to save the world through regulation?

            We’re all assholes, I guess.

          • This is true.

            And on the whole regulation thing… If left unchecked, businesses WILL fuck people over hard to get that paper. I can’t go into too much detail but I’ve worked for some shady places. Subpoenas and all.

          • KJM

            I’ve always been amused by those who distrust TEH BIG SCAREE EVIL GOVERNMENT but have childlike, naive faith in the goodwill of big business.

          • If your raison d’√™tre is making a fuck ton of money and absolutely nothing else, shit can and will get questionable.

          • Dagon

            The problem is huge business and huge government go hand in hand. I don’t mention my distrust of big government because I support big business. I talk about it because big government is used as a tool to prevent small businesses of developing.

            Some of the biggest millionaires in the world actually emerged from socialist countries. The huge governments made it easier for them to acummulate weath without competition, and without being accountable for their unlawful actions.

          • more beer

            I was going to say pretty much the same thing.

          • Dagon

            People will fuck people over hard, period. If you go back to Adam Smith, before writing “The Wealth Of Nations” he wrote “The Theory Of Moral Sentiments”. His laissez-faire was based around the (naive, yes) notion that people would act on their best.

            Turns out that some of us usually don’t. We need rules, but they need to be as short and simple as possible.

          • Maik Beninton

            I will stab all these comments.

          • Republicans is more like privileged white people who don’t like change and have a lot of their worldview based on misconceptions promoted by their nationalist culture.

          • Dagon

            What about the golden liberal paladins?

            I don’t mean to come off as agressive or as an asshole. I just think that these political stereotypes are really shallow and misleading. Sometimes they kind of piss me off.

            I still love you.

          • KJM

            For what it’s worth, I base all my opinions on personal encounters/experience and not on any kind of party dogma. I’ve voted for Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Greens, Socialists, etc.

          • KJM

            I don’t care for upper class collegiate lefties either because they usually don’t have the courage to stand up for their values and they tend to have the same “ewww, gross” view of the poor/disabled that is often associated with right-wing conservatives. When the going gets tough, they run right back home to Rich Mommy & Daddy.

          • The fact that people subscribe to the political ideologies is the problem in general. The general public is either not educated enough to know they are being manipulated by a party’s propaganda or they are apathetic because they are aware but the majority is clueless. The end result is no progress for the common man while those with wealth and power walk off with everyone else’s cash.

          • KJM

            That’s why even though I vote every chance I get, I am not registered with any party and usually vote 3rd party in every Presidential election.

          • That’s the way to do it. We need more of the voting public to grasp hold off that because wholesale changes are needed. Republicrat – Democran, one party system.

          • KJM

            Admittedly, I have that luxury because I live in Massachusetts. If I lived in a so-called battleground state, I’d have to go with the whole “lesser of 2 evils” thing which I despise being forced into.

          • Same here in NJ although we somehow have a governor who’s been a disaster for the state which speaks to my earlier point about an uninformed voting public.

          • KJM

            Oh dang, sorry about that.

            We’re stuck with a Governor who, despite all the evidence that our public transit system is badly broken and needs a near total overhaul, cut funds for the MBTA during our worst Winter in decades.

          • KJU Skr√°√įuVergaskip Egyo √≠ Ras

            Same in IL. You will NEVER see a Republican mayor in Chicago. No way, no how, and the ones who have bothered to run are quickly laughed off and forgotten.
            I hate voting, but if I were back home, I’d definitely vote for ‘Chuy’, the main guy running against Rahm. Rahm has single-handedly done more damage to Chicago than any other mayor, including the largest set of school closures in American history (his response to teachers who protested and asked for the raises they were legally owed), and tripling the transit rates ($11.75 for a one day pass now).

            I don’t vote, period. (Well, I don’t have to, being Supreme Leader and all)

            Only thing I’ve heard from the libertarians and Green Party is legalize all drugs. Not one word on education, global affairs, job creation, or anything else.
            Can’t we go back to having kings and queens, so we can just send them to the public guillotine when they fuck up bad enough?

            Leaglisation of drugs would create jobs and world peace so everyone has time to learn. <— only half kidding, pick which half.

          The right answer is “neither”.

            The right answer is both. I am tired of paying taxes to provide college education to rich kids wearing Guevara shirts who never read a single book yet somehow declare themselves socialists. I am even more tired of paying taxes to provide the idiots who “run” my country with their salaries, passing moronic Keynesian policies that got us almost on the breaking point of a bust.
