Tigeraid

Not exactly an EP from the deepest darkest depths of metal history, as Plague Prophecy just came out in 2014… But rocking out to Extinction A.D.‘s first full-length album, Faithkiller, brought last year’s EP to mind. Thrashy, thrashy goodness. The whole tune’s good but I love the time change into the riff at 1:26.

 

Ted Nü-Djent

Yep, I’m submitting another Black Breath song. Big whoop, wanna fight about it? From their debut EP Razor to Oblivion. Riff starts to build from 1:11 until it kicks in at about 1:28 by which the riff sequence runs for about 1 minute.The real hook of the riff sequence at 1:55 and again at 2:25 = pickle tickled.

 

Zeke

It took me a while to “get” DsO, but lately I’ve been on a binge. I just copped the Drought EP a couple of weeks ago, and I think the riff that starts at 2:18 is the highlight.

 

Vegglampe

The second verse (0:38) is odd and not Kvelertak-y at all, but it carries a heavier feel to it than most other releases form the band. Pluss, who can hate Kvelertak? [Me. — Masterlord]

 

Richter

0:00. Spiritual desolation triple-distilled into its purest sonic form. The best way to absorb this riff is to do so alone, lying prostrate on the floor–preferably low carpet that hasn’t been vacuumed in at least two months and is composed of about 68% cat hair. It’s also best to do it while there’s still some low daylight left, with a light buzz on.

 

Gorak

NORTHERN OHIO BRING DOOM!!!

 

Boss the Ross

00:34. Melvins. All that needs to be said. King Buzzo is a riff king and its hard to pick just one from War on Wisdom but I will go with the one starting at 00:34. It’s an odd one but catchy as hell. Oh, and do yourself a favor, watch the whole video.

 

Lacertilian

This was a tough decision to make, choosing between this track or ‘Bound By Desire’. Does it really matter? Either way, this EP is one of my favourite of all time. Riff starts when you stab play.

 

Dagon

Rotting Christ have been at it for almost too long. Dudes started out playing grindcore-ish short songs on a stolen guitar, and then went on to become legends of Greek black metal in their own right. This demo, released in 1989, is filled with Celtic Frost/Sarcófago worship, but also hints at what would become their future… The riff that comes in at 1:55 and then back again on 2:25 on track “Hills Of Crucifixion” is particularly gnarly.

 

KJU

No idea what this week’s submission thingy is, but here we go! For an uncensored video, I was expecting something more NSFW. Riff starts at 1:54, amongst much delightful Abraham Lincoln wienerfication.

 

MoshOff

I’m submitting a riff from an EP that came out this year, so it definitely is exclusive to said EP as of right now. Entheos’ Primal is 20 minutes of amazing riff after amazing riff. I could have just picked a time at random and submitted that, but instead I’m championing my favorite riff from closer ‘Form and Void’ (3:35).

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

    “I will include all of the submissions instead of the usual 15 next week”
    You had like 4 when you said that didn’t you?

    • EsusMoose

      I also forgot to throw something in, but the lizard got my back and put something in off the same ep. So all’s well that ends with it winning, else someone’s shoe is going to be destroyed with corgifury.

  • YES! That Rotting Christ demo rules. Good pick duder; And good riff.

    • Dagon

      Rotting Christ is killer! I actually changed my mind immediately after submitting that riff and tried to get it changed to this one, but the Masterlord was probably busy doing master or lord things.

      http://youtu.be/kLEuYUEbwoQ

      This one is a riff fest, I would have submitted the one at 4:13

    • IronLawnmower

      Gonna watch muddafuckin Evil Dead tonight

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Day of the Dead last night, possibly Trick or Treat today.

      • Boss the Ross

        A classic! That movie is phenomenal

      • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

        Might actually break out my copy of Stakeland when I can finally find the time. And Pantypool afterwards.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNC2HwAaWWE

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Heh, Pantypool

          • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

            Damn good film. Funny name though.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      Ninth Gate later, maybe Suspiria.

    • Maik Beninton™

      I will get around to watch Creep.

    • EsusMoose

      Can you roast marshmellows on those? Cause that shit would be efficient as fuck

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      Watched amusingly wacko proto-slasher The Love Butcher (killer’s dialogue and performance are particularly fine) and Spanish obscurity Mas alla del terror, an offbeat thugsploitation/supernatural revenge combo so far. This evening probably Swedish Evil Dead homage Wither and oldie cult menace suspenser The Night that God Screamed.

      I try to fit in 31 horror viewings, 16 of which first timers, each October. Have only actually succeeded once, but have a good feeling about this year.

      • Watched Boogie Nights last night. I think Marky Mark’s acting prowess constitutes “horror”.

        • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

          I’ve not seen that, though I probably should as many rate it highly. I’m just wary because I’ve seen quite a lot of 70’s pornography and read a fair bit about the scene so it might be distracting if the film seems not to jive with my own knowledge.

          • It’s not a documentary, so it should be taken with many grains of salt. Not sure if it’s meant to be a comedy but I found it worthy of riotous laughter.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            I believe it’s supposed to be somewhat Altmanesque and I do dig Altman, so it’s probably my cup of tea in the formal sense.

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            Yep, it’s very Altman.

        • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

          Watching Donnie on Blue Bloods rite now

        • KJM, Doom Hunter General

          I think the dealer listening to Night Ranger may be the most coked out film character this side of Tony Montana.

          • Zeke

            On of the most uncomfortable scenes ever

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            -BANG!-

          • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

            Never seen Bad Lieutenant, I take it?

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            Ah, almost forgot about him.

          • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

            How Werner Herzog picked Eva Mendez to be in that film is beyond me, considering she’s an awful actress. Goddamn, though, she’s just that hot. And to think, she had a kid with Ryan Gossling. Talk about winning the genetic lottery!

            http://mindnumbedrobot.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/eva_mendes0049.jpg

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            I haven’t seen “Port Of Call: New Orleans” yet. I’ve only seen the Harvey Keitel movie.

          • HessianHunter

            Yeah, their child is probably gonna grow up to be Helen Of Troy-level hot.

          • Trump’s Brainfart Jock Strap

            And born with Ryan’s iron six pack.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          Dang, I love Boogie Nights.

          • Boogie Nights loves you too.

    • Óðinn

      • Maik Beninton™

        “Let’s kill some bushes!”.

        • Pagliacci is Kvlt

          “Then roll around and de-thatch the lawn!”

        • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

          And murder some banzai trees.

      • Goddamn!

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    Might be tough to not vote for Zeke this week.

    • Zeke

      Don’t be a geek, vote for zeke!!

      • Done.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          I cast that same vote. Looks like it’s Zeke versus Lizard God for the win unless something drastically changes.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Revocation always seems to get a ton of votes.

          • Based Pingu

            Unfortunately.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            I like ’em less than most, more than others.

          • Based Pingu

            I don’t like them at all, but that surprises no one.

          • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

            Haters gon hate?

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            I refer to my earlier answer, currently found two answers below this answer.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Haters gonna hate hate hate hate

          • *Lizard always seems to get a ton of votes.

            Seriously, he needs to quit mopping the floor with all of us posers.

          • Lacertilian

            This is a falsehood. My selection has never won this thing.

          • Really? Never? Regardless, you still come close, like, totally all the time. N’stuff.

          • Lacertilian

            My house/state right now is almost the complete opposite state you describe to consume your riff.
            I’m not alone, in a seated position having just vacuumed the carpet, no cats involved, the sun is bright as fuck and I don’t have a buzz on because I’m hungover from 2 big nights in a row.

          • The hangover is the key to experiencing the riff. It’s versatile, for all miserable/existential occasions. Sorry about the sun; that sucks.

          • Lacertilian

            To be honest, I think it would only take a beer or two for the buzz to be back on.
            I’ll get back to you.

          • Low-ass total vote count this week. Where the F is everybody?

            Flush the vote, people!

          • tigeraid

            I can only assume the silent masses are preparing a cumulative, server-killing mass-vote for my entry. It’s really the only explanation.

          • I was thinking the exact same thing. (Cue Twilight Zone theme music.)

  • EsusMoose

    What’s great on a saturday? a bunch of shitty people tailgating right out side your window at 8 am. Hope they enjoy the soothing sounds of shit from my spotify.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      Shit out the window.

      • EsusMoose

        I’ve been eyeing their food for a bit, they have 6 coolers of booze, a nice grill they brought along and multiple tables of food. I should introduce myself.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          Even better idea.

        • more beer

          Go eat their food and drink their booze. Consider it an annoyance tax.

        • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

          This is the proper course of action

  • Vote for Jeb

    I do love Electric Six, but that’s definitely not a demo/EP track.

    • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

      I had zero idea what the criteria was last week. It seemed a bit scattered at times.

      • Vote for Jeb

        Well dang, the votes speak in your favor.

        • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

          Fuck me up the Ozarks, I might actually win one of these things, and it’s completely on accident!

          • Seen them live over five times, they put on a spectacular show.

  • If I were to submit, I would’ve went with this Dead In The Dirt song. At 0.38 seconds get some Fear.

  • Hey look some of our names are abbreviated in the poll. Laziness or a sign of affection?

    • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

      The .asterpants cannot be deigned to type all your names

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    I’m confused about this week. I thought it was debut demo or ep.

    • EsusMoose

      I thought it was their debut demo, or any ep, but it makes more sense with debut*( demo v ep). (sorry for math syntax, only way to concisely say it)

    • Lacertilian

      Nah, not debut.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        I would have picked different if I read it properly

  • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

    Had to choose between voting for myself or our favorite resident lizard, so went with our fine lizard folk on this one.

    http://31.media.tumblr.com/98068b67983cb7ee47b5449181bcabaa/tumblr_mq03zkoQ4X1sz3oq6o1_500.gif

    • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

      Lizard is a respectable choice

    • Lacertilian

      If they were your only two options then you chose correctly.
      Voting for yourself is filthy.

      • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

        If I were a lesser man, I’d take away my vote for you, simply because you’re edging dangerously close to my number of votes. I definitely didn’t expect any votes (it was zero when I left out for work earlier), and now…………. wow!

  • Based Pingu

    FUCK. Entheos, DsO, Kvelertak, AND Electric Six? Option paralysis.

    Good choice Ted Nü-Djent. If somebody thinks the best “Old School Death Metal” is buried in the past, well, you’re wrong, check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvuTVdr9h30

    • more beer

      They are very good. I`ve seen them a few times.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    My date went well. It was somewhat short because she had to get to work after we were done.

  • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS
  • Waynecro

    That was another difficult decision.

    • Well . . . ? The suspense is killing us.

      • Waynecro

        If I say who I wished for, it won’t come true. I thought that was mere superstition, but it happened time and time again during
        “The Best Unsigned Bands in the U.S.” It still stings.

        • Waynecro

          I can say that I chose one of the following: Deathspell Omega, Wolves in the Throne Room, Revocation, Entheos.

          • These are all correct choices. Except Wolves, if you voted Wolves you fucked up ROYALLY.

          • Waynecro

            Then I’m lucky, because I did not vote for Wolves.

          • Good man.

          • Waynecro

            I try, dude. I try.

          • I cry, dude. I cry.

          • Waynecro

            Strong men also cry.

  • KJM, Doom Hunter General

    GORAK GET VOTE! DOOM GOOD!!!

  • Óðinn
  • Dagon

    I vote Lizard

    • Lacertilian

      I kinda went against my statement the other week, but who gives a fuck, gotta be ruthless.

  • Lacertilian

    Black Breath get the Lizard vote this week.

  • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

    My reaction once I saw all the votes for me:

    • Based Pingu

      I don’t get how you got so many votes with that shitty song.

      • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

        I got so many votes because you’re opinion is wrong!

            when?

          • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

            Didn’t you get stalked by some guy from there? (don’t worry, he’s most likely blocked by now)

  • KJM, Doom Hunter General

    • That’s my favorite band of all.
