It’s freezing and I’m too much of a cxheap bastard to run the heat, so I’ve decided to just type in my gloves. I’ve also fecided to leave any and all typos resulting from the currently numb abnd begloved status of my hands in deep, artistic protest of bothb the weather and the preposterous cost of keepng a 60-year old, poorly-insulated house wartm. Fucj winter.

Last weekCoolstorybro did what no othrr man would do: The right thing. And he was rewarded with victory.

“Rainbow in the Dark” was the only answer, and everyone who didn’;t think of it (I am among the accused) should hang their heads in poserly shame and beseech the great Ronnie James Dio to forgive their metal insolence. What were the runner-ups? “Rainbow in the Dark,” and “Rainbow in the Dark” again. Hail Coolstorybro.

Also, get a load of these dorks!

It happens to the best of us, guys. Except Coolstorybro.

Business time:

  • Next week, as suggested by Max, we’re doing strictly start-stop riffs. What are those? You should know. But if you don’t, here’s some Maxplanation:

“Back in the days before Guitar Hero and isolated tracks uploaded to The Tube of You, riffs with lots of rests were the only time you ever got to hear what the drums sounded like without the guitars over them on a metal record. So I always looked forward to those parts of a song.They also make a guitar sound seem heavier; because if you’re just hearing it continuously you get numb to it. It can be abused though; nu-metal always had too much of them, whereas black metal barely had them at all.”

  • Send your start-stop riffs to toiletovhell@gmail.com. Remember, they come in quick.
  • Tell me if you have any ideas for themed riffs in the comment section.
  • I love you guys.

 

Masterlord Steel Dragon

Abazagorath summoning the melodic black metal tremolo riff’s final form. Genericness perfected.

 

Joe Thrashnkill

Recently we discussed punks that could (improbably) shred. A Wilhelm Scream came to mind immediately. One of my favorite tracks by the band “The Horse” is the best argument that progressive punk could be a viable and totally absurd genre. Starting at 0:22 a tapping bass line comes in and is soon joined by a complimentary guitar line at 0:39. If you’re not air guitaring (or bassing) to this, you have no soul.

 

W.

When Pestilence came back from the dead five years ago, it was as a wholly different animal. Less OSDM and more dissonant death, the main riff that kicks off this whole gnarly track sounds like some extra-dimensional Hound of Tindalos infected with otherworldly rabies tearing at you with foaming mouth from every corner in your tiny apartment simultaneously.

 

Stockhausen

When “Antartica” kicks in at 1:18 after the spoken word intro, it’s like the actual Antarctica is actually kicking in. What does it mean for an icy, hellish wasteland of a continent to kick in? Listen to The Great Old Ones and find out, ya jabronis.

 

Howard Dean

Katharsis. I’ve submitted two riffs and a solo from this band. Maybe I like them a little?! Raw as tartare and maniacally catchy hymns of devilworship. Obey the serpent. 1:24.

 

Edward

Something has happened to me over the last couple of weeks, in which I have taken instrumental music far more seriously than I ever had before. Part of the reason is Sannhet. Sannhet play instrumental post-black metal, and do not play grindcore. They released Known Flood in 2013 to much fanfare and acclaim, and for good reason. “Moral,” a short track about halfway through the album, builds and builds on the “post” aspect of their sound with a direct drum beat and fast riffs, until the whole thing explodes at 1:37. Check out the track, check out THOSE RIFFS at 1:37.

 

Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

Enochian Crescent gave black metal a twist like no other. “Väkisinkastettu” delivers right from the start. No tremolo picked hoarfrost worship, just pure, melodic madness in honor of Satan. If that is not your choice for the single catchiest moment in BM, you are a big fat liar. And you know it.

 

Satan Ov Hell

The opening acoustic riff to Sombre’s “Mater Maternis” is a piece of perfectly executed DSBM glory, mournful, sorrowful, and builds the atmosphere for their entire discography. It is repeated often, which helps really drive home the feeling, especially as the distortion kicks in.

 

Max

Broken Hope, “Skin Is In”, first riff in the song. I DARE ANYONE not to think this is killer.

 

Brock Samson

It’s Mayhem at their prime. What more needs to be said. A neck brace will be required to enjoy this ride.

 

Jack Bauer

This is one of those riffs that takes you by the neck and says “you’re going to headbang to my song and there is nothing you can do about it so you might as well just start now.”

 

George Lynch

As a card carrying Lifelover, I feel obliged to introduce you guys to Chon. The riff starts of 0:00 to 0:21. The video is a play through of their tune and it is great (watching them play is great!). THEY HAVE RIFFS FOR DAYS. Check them out!

 

Lacertilian22

That main intro riff hooks me hard. It’s got a nice groove to it and for those who were talking pick scrapes last week…

 

Link D. Leonhart V

The English gentleman of Paradise Lost helped to define the Death/Doom movement, and they really know how to blend the emotive melodies with the melancholy in the rhythmic section very well. I’ve been listening to the Greg Macintosh guitar tone during the past few months and, to me, it’s one of the best musical exports of England. In every album he gets this massive and resonating sound in the six strings. This song was later retelled in “Universal Dream” from the Death Unites Us – Faith Divides Us album of 2009. And they both rule!

    Jack Bauer takes it this week

    • CyberneticOrganism

      You have the worst name I’ve ever heard.

      • Guest

        🙁

        • Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo

          Somehow I posted that as a guest

  • DeadButtDreaming

    Hail Satan Ov Hell! Dat depressive riff.

  • Guys, no Snapcase? Zombie Prescription at 1:22

  • I think dragonpants might have had one or two to drinks before article?

  • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

    Either Link or Jack. A little hard this week.

    • I’m giving Stockhausen my vote, especially after all the French-wave stuff we were talking about yesterday, I completely forgot about The Great Old Ones.

    • Pantliacci is Tr/iler

      I’m with Team Edward this week, because I’ve submitted Sannhet before and want to send them as many brohugs their way as I can.

    • Why is everyone changing their name to Trailerpants?

    • happy-face sticker for you too, mr. Finnish Bear..

      I wanted to vote for W. or Joe. That Pestilence album was cool, too.

  • It dropped to freezing this week. I realized I own one sweater. Just one and it doesn’t really fit. I am not an adult.

    • It’s way too cold for this time of year. Doesn’t bode well for when it is actually winter. I predict more days where the city shuts down.

      • ok, yours won. that riff is one of the greatest riffs in all of metal. srs.

        • It’s one of my all time favorites along with the riff from that Primordium song. That one will probably end up as my riff of the year.

        • What’s your favorite release this year, Detective McNvlty?

          • that’s a tough one. if Stargazer releases an album this year, that will be it (and no i haven’t heard anything from it yet, don’t need to).
            otherwise, three-way tie: Abysmal Dawn, Black Crown Initiate and Gridlink.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            Jon Chang (the vocalist of Gridlink) sucks!!! Because every band of his always ceases to exist when they are at their best (which on the other hand, is also really good). The last album always remains the best.

          • hehe, in his mind he’s probably all “the only trve band is one that’s released a few albums and then called it quits”

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            I kinda wish it was true, with Gridlink ending like it did.

        • JöhnnytheMotherFuckin’Crünch™

          Love the new addition to your name Mr McNulty

    • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

      It’s 23 degrees outside as I type this. It was 60 on wednesday, and it snowed on halloween. What the fuck is wrong with north carolina.

      • I’m in Chicago, wanna trade?

        • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

          Nah, too frostbitten and grim for me.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Meet me at Three Floyds sometime. I hear Sarah Connor is there.

          • Wait you’re in chitown? How did I not know this? I’m actually a half hour from downtown though. I just say Chicago cause it’s easier.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            What town?

          • Ask me on fb lol.

      • ANOTHER FROM THE GREATEST STATE!? WHERE IS TWORIVERS!? THORRRRRR?

        • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

          I COME FROM THE FROSTED MOUNTAINS OF ASHEVILLE, FELLOW CAROLINIAN.

          • I LIVE IN ASHEVILLE, LETS PARTY! I HAS A FAT CAT TOO (we actually just moved here from Sylva, and if you ask me I dont feel like i’m in the mountains anymore)

          • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

            I’m originally from charlotte where it is much warmer. I’m only here for the college.

          • Ah, I was born and raised in Raleigh. I’m only here because the city is gross and I <3 Mountains.

          • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

            I actually like the cold but I like complaining even more. During the fall and summer it’s fifty times better than Charlotte. Did you see Carcass when they stopped by a few weeks ago?

          • no, sadly. We were still in the process of moving. GWAR has a show coming up, I think. Winter isn’t great for shows, this is especially so in the mountains. Luckily its a short drive to ATL from here, where good shows abound.

          • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

            I’m so excited to see them.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            You like cold? And complaining? Have you Finnish blood noble sir, pus…cat?

          • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

            Could be, I’m a mix of fucking everything.

      • FeelTheDarkness

        I just more to NC. The weather is better here than in PA.

        • yahhhhhh we’re taking overrrr

        • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

          Better overall but god damn it lacks consistency.

        • JöhnnytheMotherFuckin’Crünch™

          And there’s not as much AIDS infested Tom Hanks’ (I’m assuming that PA is short for Philadelphia)

          • FeelTheDarkness

            PA. Is the abbreviation for Pennsylvania.

        • Which part of this fair state?

          • FeelTheDarkness

            Burlington

          • Well, at least there’s plenty of outlet malls lulz

          • FeelTheDarkness

            The mrs. can shop til.she drops

    • Spear

      It was -11 this morning with the wind chill. Can it be Fuck It Saturday, too?

  • I voted for Paradise Lost. You’re welcome.

  • God

    With jack on this one. Abysmal Dawns latest is on of my favorite releases this year. That whole album should come with a disclaimer that you might break your neck from too much headbanging.

    • What is your favorite release this year?

    • @rottingcarcass:disqus, it’s good to see a fellow AD fan. have you seen them live? simply wonderful. and their new album kicks them into low orbit. those solos are outrageous.

      • God

        That’s one thing I love about them, the blistering solos you don’t find very often from a brutal death metal band. Those dudes can shred and know how to make some neck breaking riffs.

      • JöhnnytheMotherFuckin’Crünch™

        Abysmal Dawn > Bloodshot Dawn for mine

        • God

          I love both but abysmal dawn knocked bloodshot off their pedestal for me.

          • JöhnnytheMotherFuckin’Crünch™

            Nothing Abysmal about it at all. First time I heard it was truly mind blowing

        • Howard Dean

          Dawn > Abysmal Dawn > Bloodshot Dawn

          • Paul Wall

            YO DAWN IS A SIQQ DISH SOAP DOH

      Hey God. It’s me, Paris. When is your son coming back? I have some uses for his little water trick….

      • God

        He is currently preparing for Armageddon. I don’t think he has any openings probably until 7 years from Christmas :/

        • Paris Hilton

          Aw, dang.

  • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

    Gotta go with Stocky this week.

    • Hey VV, what did you think of Ash Borer’s newer “Bloodlands”? Just seeing it on my playlist now made me think about the one you posted yesterday.

      • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

        I dig.

      • Edward

        Ash Borer >>>>>>

    • Stockhausen

      Kiss my riff ring.

  • Elite Träilerpäntsphile

    George Lynch automatically gets my vote because Chon.

    • Poseur Diposeur

      I did that too. Awesome

  • @webb71:disqus that’s an absolute scorcher! you would get my kneejerk vote… alas i do need to listen to them all before judgement.

    • How do you enter a song in these polls?

      • There are instructions in the post, ya #1 dingus!

        • Thanks!

        • I have one for the non-guitar edition.

          • *whispers* i got bad news for ya, fella…

          • what?

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            It was held a while back, you arrived too late to the scene

          • I thought it was a weekly thing. Sorry, i’m new to this site.

          • that was last week’s. what would have been yours tho?

          • Yep, i like Zelda.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            I LOVE Zelda

          • Windwaker is my favorite game of all time.
            #1.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            Solid choice. It’s definitely one of my favorites in the series. Link’s Awakening was the first one I played, but I have very fond memories of Ocarina.

          • Ocarina of Time >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

          • What about Majora’s Mask?

          • Majora’s Mask happens to be this guy’s favorite.

          • Goht is the best boss in that game, Twinmold is right under him.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            Goht is such a fun boss. Rolling around as Goron Link was awesome.

          • Hellyeah!

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            Love it as well. It was the last game I got for my N64 I believe, and I played it a ton when it first dropped. Always liked it, even before the internet hype machine retold its story as some dark masterpiece.

          • It is a dark game, because of the end-of-the-world theme, but the overall atmosphere is what i love about it. I would just run around Clocktown because it felt right at home.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            I love the conspiracy theory about Link being dead and all,
            Surrounding that game

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            Are you familiar with the Ben Drowned story?

          • His face is fucking creepy as hell.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            I wasn’t

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            Look it up. It’s a pretty good creepypasta.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            Will

          • One of the best creepypastas out there. What’s your opinion on Skyward Sword?

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            I liked it. Honestly, there hasn’t been a Zelda I disliked, although I should note that I’ve never played the Phillips CD-I games. Skyward Sword had some frustrating controls and a far too linear playthrough, but I really enjoyed the story and some of the cool bosses. Plus that end sequence where you have to fight through horde after horde of monsters was awesome.

          • I didn’t like the beginning. It was as long as K Kardashian’s ass.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            That’s a fair criticism. I think Nintendo has realized they can stop with the hand-holding intros. A Link Between Worlds was very nonlinear and awesome.

          • ALBW is awesome. The bosses were amazing, as usual, and the dungeons just felt so compact and well put together.

          • Oh yeah, i’m sure you know this, but they’re remaking Majora’s Mask on the 3ds. It will be released Spring 2015. I’m fucking hyped.

          • You watch The Game Theorists?

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            Seen a little something.

          • They covered the theory pretty well.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            I remember a glitch on the original N64 cartridge that let you use Fierce Deity outside of boss battles. I got it to work once or twice.

          • Paris Hilton

            Man the woman at the ranch knows that her and her daughter are going to fucking die if you talk to her at the right time. That’s some heavy shit!

          • Yeah, really.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            Also, the whole fact that Romani gets abducted if you aren’t fast enough…

          • MM is good too, I just have such fond memories of Ocarina on the 64.

          • Ocarina is wildely claimed as the best game of all time. I agree. My personal favorite is just Wind Waker. My favorite dungeon in OoT is the Forest Temple (adult Link), and my favorite dungeon in Wind Waker is the Earth Temple or the Forest Haven.

          • Paris Hilton

            Majora’s Mask is super fuckin underrated

          • Extremely underrated, as well as Wind Waker.

          • Paris Hilton

            Don’t let the cutesy look fool you, Wind Waker is fucking hard!

          • Am i the only one who got legitamately scared while fighting Gohdan? (The 3rd boss in the Wind Waker).

          • Anything Zelda is childsplay compared to the self-inflicted face-fucking of Dark Souls =P #fanboy

          • ZELDA FOR LIFE, BRAH

          • #d&dLyfe #Ibeenaround

          • I don’t like the overhead view Zeldas, just the 3d ones.

          • I think people should be able to hate things without having to explain themselves XD Especially in reference to videogames. I am actually fond of the top-downs, as well as the 3d ones.

          • I do enjoy A Link Between Worlds, though. Great game.

          • SO Smitty, who are you? where do you live?

          • I am a dead fish who is number 1 that lives in the Bikini Bottom Cemetary.

          • Paris Hilton

            It’s that difficultly that makes us never trust again. I play video games for 2 reasons, to get mad and to win. I ain’t the type to let a girl win in any video game because I’m not some fucking casual.

          • Ocarina Of Time is amazing, and my second favorite. But Windwaker had great music, great temples, and AMAZING bosses.

          • Give it a chance, it’s very nice.
            #1.

          • Stone Tower Temple is one of the best dungeon schemes i’ve ever played 🙂 Majora’s Mask is one of my fav games: from the atmosphere to the gameplay. I remember that I spent a lot of the time running around Clock Town saving my money for the brink of destruction and playing the mini-games.. Or just putting masks to see the reaction of the NPC.

          • My favorite Zelda track is actually the Deku Palace theme, but Stone Tower Temple’s theme is more memorable.

      • gotta be quick too!

  • @george_lynch:disqus i think i f**ked up. went to see Animals as Leaders a while back and Chon MIGHT have been an opener, and we arrived too late. missed them. regretsies!

    • I don’t have any love for Animals As Leaders, but they’re good.
      #1.

    • YA DONE FUCKED UP SON

      Yeah that tour was Animals as Leader, Conquering Dystopia (FTW!!!!) and Chon. I was blown away by how articulate Chon was. Conquering Dystopia was fucking great. AA was decent!

      GL

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    That Enochian Crescent was awesome, but I had to go with Mr. Bauer on this, sorry!

    Actually, there were a few other really good entries this week.

  • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

    Unrelated: Started Metro 2033 the game a little while ago and loving it. Was surprised how little it was based on the book, yet how exactly it was the book.

    • Xan

      I loved that game. One of the most atmospheric games I’ve ever played.

      • Most atmospheric game: Ocarina Of Time.

        • most atmospheric game: Kairo

          • Great game. What’s your favorite game? Mine is Windwaker from the Zelda series. (of course!)

          • Probably BioShock 2. Wasn’t a big Zelda fan after that SNES Zelda game shoved me into a locker 🙁

          • Have you ever played Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, and Wind Waker to their fullest? Because if you haven’t, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? PLAY THEM! THEY’RE AMAZING! Oh, and BioShock2 is pretty awesome!
            #1.

          • even with my bias i’m going to say the most atmospheric series is Dark Souls

        • Xan

          I’m going to disagree. I really have disliked every Nintendo game I’ve played. They’re too happy.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            Try Majora’s Mask. There is no happy in apocalypse

          • Twilight Princess is happy?

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            The man knows not that which he speaks of!

          • Haha! Right! Twilight Princess is one of my favorite Zelda games as well. Blizetta’s boss fight is pretty amazing imo.

      • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

        Have you read the book(s)?

        • I haven’t played the game or read the books.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            I would recommend you do both if you are a reader. One of the best Fantasy books. At times seems more like a philosophical essay on human being-ness

        • Xan

          Not yet. I own them but I’ve got so many books to read, I haven’t gotten to them yet.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            The second one (and the upcoming third) isn’t that good, but the first one is one of my very favorites

    • Are you doing the redux version or the original?

      • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

        Redux, got them both on sale

    • i should get that! linux user here, and it’s supported!!

      • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

        Definitely

    • Have a buddy that raves about this game.

  • Off topic: I may have to shave off my beard. Is the end nigh? Will I blast myself off to Valhalla afterwards? #pontification

    • Death

      NEVER shave your beard, my love. You have to stay strong. Beard brothers unite!

      • Its around 6-7″ this time. I suppose I can always grow it bakk out.

        • Death

          I’ll fucking come over there and break your arms so you can’t shave it!

          • I’ll mail it to you, so you can make a sweet piece of armor out of it.

          • Death

            No thanks, I already have everything covered in hair. Most of it is mine, some from my dogs. Those bastards drop a lot of hair and it always sticks to me.

          • We have a dog and a very very long haired cat. My waifu’s hair is crazy long, my beard’s is. So, needless to say, I empathize.

          • Death

            Corgis look small, but oh boy do they drop a lot of hair. Other one is fluffy furred one, so that doesn’t help.

          • Corgis are cute ^_^

            I agree and so does this guy.

      I just haven’t felt the same since I was forced to shave my beard for a staff meeting.

      At least for now the only people who see me getting scruffy again are students, and they’re too preoccupied with not failing to be bothered by how professional (or not) I look.

    • beards grow faster than hair. just DO NOT shave your head. #regretsies.

      • typically my hair is very short. but imagining mcnulty bald is funny.

    Been playing Assassin’s Creed: Unity today and I love it.

    • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

      So Itella does work after all.

      • Death

        Also Prisma works. The new Call of Duty is actually pretty good as well.

        • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

          Been getting that a lot. Haven’t liked a single game in that series yet.

          • Death

            Single players usually suck in those, this one was ok (ending was horrible). The multiplayer is great.

          • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

            Multiplayer still the ADHD runaround?

          • Death

            Pretty much, but it’s fun. A lot of bouncing this time.

          • We used to only play for the party games (Sticks & Stones #rampage)

    • Scrimm

      Play the evil within.

      • Death

        Nah nope no thanks fuck that

      • Man that game is such a mess on PC.

        • Scrimm

          Really?

          • Yea, it has letterbox efffect, locked to 30 fps, you can unlock it but it then it crashes, the fov is awful it zooms in to what’s his faces back, it’s one of the worst ports I’ve ever seen. I got about as far as that guy who has the chest for a head and then after beating him said fuck it this isnt worth it.

          • Scrimm

            Wow that sucks. There’s small issues on the xbox but nothing like that. Sometimes it is hard to highlight an item you want to pick up and a couple times I’ve missed shit I obviously hit.

    • so that’s where you’ve been!

      • Death

        Not really, I bought it yesterday.

    • That new free run system is a thing of beauty and the game is fucking gorgeous!

      • Death

        Almost as glorious as you.

  • Paris Hilton

    I voted for Joe. What can I say? Us extremely attractive and wealthy socialites are complete sucker for dudes in mid-level bands!

    • YESSSSS

      • Further Down the Metal Hole

        I’m not a fan of punk, but that tune was saucy as hell.

      • that prog punk is excellent.. i will def check more of that band, Joe!

  • JWG

    One of the two commenters called this “Occult Surf Rock”. I think that was meant disparagingly, but I’m pretty sure those two things coming together are why I like it.

    • Nordling No Trailerpants Karhu

      Yes! A great band!

    • Howard Dean

      Occult surf rock? Try Aluk Todolo. They are fucking great.

    Tough choice between TGOO and Abysmal Dawn. Ultimately, I’ll with you on this one, Bauer.

  • Lacertilian

    Joe – I guess you have proven that I indeed do not have a soul.

    Dubya – while that riff is the tits, I reckon the drums/cymbal work makes it tick!

    Stockhausen – Now I have another band to try and find time to listen to, did you enjoy Tempel’s ‘The Mist That Shrouds The Peaks’ from this/last year?

    Max – Rips!

    Jack – Nearly had me not voting for my own submission like the scumbag that I am.

    • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

      You’re correct. It wouldn’t sound so ghastly without all them fills.

      • Lacertilian

        I’m glad your submission has some votes now, when I logged in earlier it had been neglected.
        I’m going to give that album a bash today now thanks.

        • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

          I’m glad too! The one after it was a bit of a dud, but Ressurection Macabre was sick.

  • Lacertilian

    MSD – Theme idea: Riffs from a completely instrumental album.
    Or just instrumental songs?
    Has this already been suggested?

  • This new Appalachian Winter is sooooo sexy.

    The picture atop the article had me convinced that there would be a Conan submission this week.

    I feel I may be the only person whoever listened to CHON and MAYHEM back-to-back…on a Sunday morning at least.

    So…I checked everything out. Assorted, useless, caffeinated opinion thought detritus…in no particular order, at all:

    “…I want to listen to DARKTHRONE now. I always want to listen to DARKTHRONE…this was cool, this guy knows his stuff.”

    “Oh man, I really dig the album these guys put out with that dude with the ants all over his face.”

    “I can’t believe I’m cunting clicking on this…oh, wow, these guys can really play. I bet they enjoy their lives. Good for them. This does not fucking belong here. 3 people need to LEAVE THE HALL.”

    “Oh yeah, remember that Glen Benton kerfuffle?”

    “WHOA…I MUST BUY THIS…>voted<…"

    "MURMAIDER MURMAIDER MURMAIDER MURMAIDER MURMAIDER."

    "These guys have changed their sound so many fucking times over the years…I kinda liked their DEPECHE MODE phase…their METALLICA BLACK ALBUM phase was fun(ny). Nice to see this here."

    "Oh…they toured with THOSE guys over the SUMMER? Rough."

    "The logo and the album art makes me think of a vagina."

    "I think the dude became possessed in the middle of recording this song, like literally in THE MIDDLE…the label they are on makes total fucking sense."

    "These guys are from Brooklyn. I almost posted a BIOHAZARD song, as a matter of fact…I'm glad I didn't, no one but me would have appreciated that, probably…"

    "Horrible band name. Man, I miss STRUNG OUT. Glad I saw PROPAGANDHI this year…merch with gas masks on it $20, sweeeeet."

    "Yeah…all set with this one. This dude has some sketchy opinions…"

    "I truly CANNOT keep the lore straight…I even read that fuckin' book. Badass, but really just a bunch of nerds running around in the woods pre-internet. WI-FI SAVES CHURCHES. GUMMO is such a rad movie…"

      I really tried with Darkthrone, but it’s 2000 Flushes to me. My best friend loves them, and his band covered them, and I still think they’re utter shit.

      • I really respect them for their influence and their ability to change their styles. But I can’t pass, in my tastes, that raw black merol sound…

  • Renan Ribeiro
  • Kim Jong Un Pardons A Turkey

    Might as well ask………… Are there any good metal covers for this?
