It is with utmost pride and without any semblance of permission that I officially proclaim Stockhausen’s cat the official mascot of TovH’s Riff ov the Week. May his reign be as long as his distant gaze is stupid-looking. This week, Simon says focus all your attention on these fade-out riffs.

Would you like to guess who won last week? I’ll give you a hint – it was Howard Dean again. You guys better get your shit together. HD’s trophy room is filling up faster than your gross face at the local McDonald’s and you’re not even putting up a fight. Except Brock Samson.

I received one vote last week. Either my taste blows or I’m way too vndergrovnd for you casuals. Guess which one I’m pretending is true.

BUSINESS:

  • Next week we’re bringing back the highly controversial SOLO OV THE WEEK. Don’t you dare even think about the fucking D-word this time.
  • Send thine solos to toiletovhell@gmail.com with your name, a specific time, and some explanation.
  • If you have a good idea for a theme, let me know. I love themes.
  • Hail Schubert.

 

Masterlord

When I hear the words fade out riff, two words come to my mind (the same two words that come to my mind in pretty much any given situation) – Bolt Thrower. I had some difficulty choosing between this and “World Eater,” but I finally settled on the riff at the end of “The Killchain.” At 3:45 the treads of the riff machine pulverize you into a nice, red purée, leaving you a faint stain in the dirt and slowly vanishing over the horizon.

No chance of escape / caught within the mainframe Killchain!

 

Tertius Decimus

To be honest, this classificates more as fade out solo rather than just a riff. However, the structure of the song comes into play: like Czardas Dance or Obituary’s classic song “Slowly We Rot”, this piece starts with slow tempo and smoothly becomes faster towards the end. The riff starts at the 4:25 mark and runs to the bridge before culminating in a solo, then repeats again until the song fades out.

 

Blackbeard

Amon Amarth, a name synonymous with Viking metal. Some say they keep making the same albums. I don’t believe that’s true. Fate of Norns is an album that helped solidify the melody-driven Amon Amarth of old. The title track, which revolves around a warrior and the loss of his son, gives insight into the belief system of the Norse pagans. It also gives us one hell of a riff. Start at 5:27.

 

Link D. Leonhart V.

That grandiose closer. Injected with Bach and with the tastiness of metal-infused jazz. Augmented with powerful, contemplative lyrics. With top musicianship and execution. It’s a perfect song on a perfect album with the perfect elements. While some proggy bands extend their songs with unnecesarry wankery, the Cynic boys delivered one of the most concise songs every written in the metal genre. My pick is goes to Master Masvidal. You can hear it circling in 3:51 onward to the final minute. Sense the infinite musical harmonization.

 

Brock Samson

The first time I ever listened to Emperor’s final album, I hated it.  After time though, it grew on me and now it is one of my favorite albums of all time. The fade out of “The Prophet” is monstrous and proggy and starts at 4:30.

 

Old Man Doom

Worship the witch, hail the riff. Go to 2:48 to slay posers with steel, or—if you’re not a scrug—then listen to the whole song. Satan.

 

Lacertilian

This riff immediately came to mind when I read Simon’s theme. It builds up as it fades out, which always leaves me wanting more. Great end to an album. Start at 5:51.

 

Ellipsis 

Building from 3:03Katatonia’s combination of swirling guitar and rhythmic percussion are soon joined by a churning riff. They all fade out at 4:49.

 

Huggy Bear

I know that it doesn’t fade out like that on the album, and that what fades out here is the riff’s second (inferior) version, but hell, what definitions wouldn’t you maim and bury to submit your favourite riff of all time? 3:24.

 

McNulty

My introduction to Marduk was with Wormwood, and “Into Utter Madness” gripped me from the very first listen. Skip to 3:23 and go on through to the end. It’s some great riffing over some great bassing. Then, when finished, go back and listen to the whole song. But don’t let the beginning portion sway your opinion (or do, but don’t tell anyone).

 

Call the Slambulance

Anytime black metal is brought up, I am obligated to jock Black September. This female fronted powerhouse pushes out some of the grimiest, crust-influenced goodies on the market. This song is one of the catchiest on the album by far, but the fade out is what makes it perfect. I pray to the good Lord of Siqq Riffz that a whole song will on day appear with this melodic piece of guitar drama as the center piece. If you don’t like it, then vote for me to spite the Masterlord.

 

Ted Nü-Djent

I like this fade out riff.

 

Howard Dean

My first choice was the fade out to Morbid Angel’s “God of Emptiness,” but that fruit is so low it’s like picking apples up off of the ground and making cider out of them. HD is a gentleman and a sportsman. So, I went with choice #2. And here it is: Think of your favorite death metal band. What is it? There’s a 99% chance they aren’t as good as Incantation. Incantation write the type of horrifyingly monolithic metal best suited for a proper fade out riff. After eight minutes of crushing motherfuckers to death, Incantation close “Abolishment of Immaculate Serenity” with a bruising ditty of a riff that fades out over the last 15 seconds of the track. Fade out starts at 8:00. Enjoy.

 

Stan Laurel

Simple, straightforward, evocative. At just over a quarter of the length of the song, what makes this riff a fade out classic is the rumbling bass line and a different drum fill at the end of each section.

 

The Xenosapien

This is a song that gets over looked because of the album it’s on. Regardless, the song rips and causes prolapse while the ending gently fades and kisses you goodnight.

          DAMNIT!

          • KJM

            Have you seen this yet? Jeff has no business taking bumps like this after all he’s done. I’m surprised he didn’t die right here.
            http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2015/0109/588392/video-jeff-hardy-takes-nasty-bump-at-tna-lockdown-tapings/

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I just watched it and that was insane. He should not be taking bumps like this anymore. I’m amazed he didn’t die.

          • KJM

            Edge was smart to retire when he did, and he’s abused himself far less than Jeff. Jeff’s like Ozzy in the sense that he puts himself through so much yet he’s still alive(dat ‘Victory Road’ match doe).

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Jeff is nowhere near as talented as Mick Foley but those two have done so many harmful bumps yet they are alive.

          • KJM

            At one point, Jeff was in far better shape than Mick. However, the thing Mick has that few others had was personality and intellect. He knows how to tell a compelling story on many levels. Heck, he’s an NYT Bestseller w/no ghostwriter.

        • to quote a famous Thasher ‘n Killer, “dead”

    • Deafhaven.

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Also The Nuges fiff starts at 3.33 (whoah that’s like half of 666 dudes) I didn’t think a time stamp was necessary for a riff that is at the end of a song but all you nerds put one on so I better let you all know the specific moment that mine starts.

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Stan’s the man this week for mine. Well played sir.

  • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

    I was just about to go on a rampage about Riff of the weak’s lack of Bolt Thrower, huh? I guess HD isn’t the only one reading minds here.

    • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

      At first (light) I was gonna vote for Bolt Catcher, because it’s THE band, then I saw that Katatonia, which has the riff. And then I noticed Gojira, which – despite not ending the song – is one the best fade out riffs ever.

      I’m going to spend the weekend trying to solve this problem.

      • if you go to the end of that Gojira song, there is a good fade-out riff doe!

      • Stanley

        What! Let me assist with this conundrum. It starts at 5:55. There’s none better!

        EDIT: There is that noodle-y bit on the end but I think of that as more of the intro to Esoteric Surgery. Apologies.

        • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

          You mayvrevel in the knowledge I did vote for Gojira in the end.

          • Stanley

            In an hour or two I’ll be drinking one of these in your honour.

            Cheers!

    • i just assumed Bolt Thrower was a Manowar cover band. am i wrong?

      • The Mighty Tapir

        I still don’t get ’em. Bolt Thrower does nothing for me except makes me yawn.

        • KJM

          They’re ok.

      • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

        Well, not really, except Manowar fricken sucks.

        • dang i like your bravery admitting that around here. with.

          • Guacamole Jim

            Mods are asleep. We can talk about how terrible Manowar is.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            “Manowar is the kind of crap that sucks so much, you wish it never came into existence!”
            -OrganGlock

          • Stanley

            The first four Manowar albums are the tits. Infidels.

        • The Mighty Tapir

          Agree that Manowar sucks, sis.

      • KJM

        Bigtime.

  • Old Man Hetfield
    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I get the joke but more of a fade out solo

      • Old Man Hetfield

        Ignore Kirk’s wanking, and fest on the tastyness of classic Hetfield beneath!

    • Lacertilian

      I would have been expecting Orion, The Thing That Should Not Be, Metal Militia or one of the forfty other Metallica songs that fade out.

  • KJM

    Bludbaff!!

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™
    • Lacertilian

      Greg Proops was taking the piss out of this on his proopcast the other day.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      I have my solo covered as well. It’s a surprise though!

  • How the hell am I expected to choose between two different Amon Amarth songs??

    …oh yeah: Skeltonwitch. Problem solved.

    • lucky for you, it was the same song twice!

    • JWG

      Definitive proof that JAG isn’t me, but rather CONAN. 🙂

    • old_man_doom

      YES. DO IT.

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    I also just remembered what is perhaps my all time favourite fade out riff (time stamped)

    • Renan Ribeiro

      This whole album is one of their best, great driving music

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Not “one of”. It is their best.

  • http://youtu.be/N9_SXHPhljI The fade out starts at 4:00.

  • BLVKKBEVRD

    Well shit, shoulda known there’d be another AA. Sooooo, Psycroptic? You got it, Lassy.

    • Lacertilian

      Looking back I think I was to hasty, they have a greater fade-out to an album.
      It could be a new challenge to try and find a theme-appropriate riff from them each week. I won’t ever win but it will satisfy me somewhat.

  • Ooh another solo of the week?

    • huehue, who’s gonna vote for that ONE solo first?!?!

    Looks like McNulty (or whatever the hell he’s called today), myself and the Slambulance are getting left behind.

    • old_man_doom

      tabletop gaming? You have me intrigued, pirate…

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Bolt Thrower. Hands down. MasterLord easily gets this nip’s vote.
    Runner Up – Howard Dean’s Incantation riff is a close second, but Bolt Thrower is Bolt Thrower. I mean… it’s fucking Bolt Thrower, y’know? Yea, you know.

    ***Honorable Mentions***
    –Ted Nu-Djent / Necrophagist – Seriously, where the FUCK is that new album already?
    –Call the Slambulance / Black September – Duuude, this is fucking awesome. Hadn’t heard them till now, definitely gonna listen to more of their music. Thanks!
    –Stan Laurel / Gojira – Damn I love Gojira. One of the best drummers in metal. Amazing on record and in concert.

    Great job this week Flushers. All great picks. Some of you may actually have good taste after all.

    • counter-point on Howard:

    • Stanley

      Mario is the man. Maybe not the fastest but he’s currently one of the most interesting and posses the best chops. I find that when I listen to Gojira I end up just listening to the drumming. I can’t say that about too many other drummers.

      • DDubya.

        I voted for you, Stanley!

      • Guacamole Jim

        DAMNIT I JUST WOKE UP

      • Fun Old Man JAG story: I went to see the Beavis & Butthead movie on opening day. At the time I was in the military, had reached the point of full-blown alcoholism, and found my rock-bottom dumb ass in a bible study group led by a hot-headed former coke addict.

        The following day I was sitting in that group, gloating to all about how funny the movie was, when The Leader Who Gave Up Banging Lines of Blow for Banging the King James Bible walked in and overheard us laughing and having fun. He said to me in a stern voice “Jay, what would you do if Jesus came back and there you are; sitting there watching a Beavis & Butthead movie?!” I told him I’d offer him some of my popcorn and you could almost see the smoke coming out of his ears. …I don’t think that guy ever laughed about anything in his life.

        • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

          I’d laugh at this, if I wasn’t simultaneously disgusted by it.

          Btw, I don’t get how T.T quick never made it even a little bigger, Metal of Honor has some killer tunes, and not very inaccessible either.

          • They were one of the few lesser-known heavy metal bands I actually had access to at the time. I love that album. You’re right: they definitely should have been bigger.

        • KJM

          If he existed, Jesus would’ve hung out and watched the movie. After all, he hung out with criminals, prostitutes, alkies, druggies, and all that. Glad to see you got yourself out of those bad times. Kudos!!

          PS: Thanks for serving. The next bowl’s for you!

          • I didn’t do anything worthy of thanks. I was only there because it was the best option for me at that point in my life. My Grandfather is a WW2 vet. I always tell people to thank him instead 🙂

          • KJM

            I thank him as well, but it’s precisely that humility that makes you just as worthy of thanks. Salud!!

          • he walked around in a robe and slippers, preaching peace. Jesus ruled! too bad about all the other bible stuff…

          • He also preached eternal hellfire.

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            Alternative explanation:
            A local carpenter finds out he’s not his father’s son, grabs the bottle and goes on a rampage against the local authorities. After three rough days he wakes up in a cave and meets a bunch of friends who thought he had died.

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      It really says something for how awesome In the Nightside Eclipse and Anthems… were that there was such a backlash against albums as good as IX Equilibrium or Prometheus.

  • I enjoy this fadeout at 3:03 from Hivesmasher. The riff is nothing special but the I love the way it gets progressively muddier and murkier on its way out.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOIJDfW-nAA&spfreload=10

  • Tyree

    Good pick McNulty! I enjoy the fade out very much too.

  • i’ll do @Beunhaas:disqus’s work this week:

    Masterlord (Bolt Thrower) – my first time hearing this band and… ultra generic riff.
    Tertius (AA) – AA when they were good!
    Blackbeard (AA) – AA phoning it in.
    Link (Cynic) – you’re either going to win or tie.
    Brock (Emperor) – excellent choice!
    Old Man Doom (the Witch) – not a fan of the band, but a terrific fade-out!
    Lacie mah bwoy (Psychroptic) – feels good man!
    Ellipsis (Katatonia) – psychadelic man! #trill #rocket
    Huggy Bear (Cathedral) – lolbuttz.
    McNulty (Marduk) – i wanna vote for myself. it’s not fair!
    Call the Slambulance (Black September) – first time hearing this band and i love it. great riff
    Ted Nu-Djent (Necrophagist) – i do too. you win this week’s blurb o the week.
    Howard Dean (Incantation) – i know there are doom fans out there, but i’m not one of them.
    Stan Laurel (Gojira) – you’re either going to win or tie somebody. m/
    The Xenosapien (Bloodbath) – WRONG that album slays. that fade-out slays as well.

    this is ultra difficult. Stan takes home the McNulty trophy this week.

    • The Mighty Tapir

      I actually almost voted for you, but Link had my fav Cynic song. I can’t fight against that!

      • if that’s the closest i get to a Tapir vote, i can die a happy man.

        • The Mighty Tapir

          If one day you go crazy and start liking the bands I do, you’ll get my vote.

          • Manes, Solstafir, Crib45, Stonebride, Pantera

          • The Mighty Tapir

            It started of nice, but then the joke came in. I am offended about the Pantera part tho.

            *gives a hug* there there. Blackbeard is a fuckface, don’t ever listen to him. I luv u.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            How is fuckface even an insult?

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Fuckface = A person with a face that instantly pisses you off the moment you see it and you have to fight an incredible urge to smash him or her in the mouth.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Your pent up sexual aggression and closet freudian desire to have sex with my face says otherwise

          • The Mighty Tapir

          • he has a nice beard. let’s just all agree on that and kiss and make up?

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            If you kiss the tapir, you turn to stone tho rite?

          • The Mighty Tapir

            No, The Tapir will grant some of your wishes.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Do I get any wishes?

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Depends on the wish.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Can I wish to be able to time travel? I want to go to all the great festivals of the 70’s via time travel.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            No time traveling! People will mess it up!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Pretty please? You don’t want these animals to cry, do you? They’re so sad because I can’t time travel.

          • THE MOST MIGHTIEST TAPIR

            I’ll adopt them so they won’t cry. No time traveling!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I’m sad now. Can I wish for all the albums I will ever want of every band I like?

          • THE MOST MIGHTIEST TAPIR

            You could, but I won’t grant wishes like that. I can’t just make them out of nothing, so I’d have to kind of steal em with my tapir magic

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            What wishes will you grant? Can you make the girl I like fall in love with me?

          • THE MOST MIGHTIEST TAPIR

            That would be breakingnher free will. No can do.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Can you convince her to fall in love with me?

          • THE MOST MIGHTIEST TAPIR

            You’re asking a tapir that sucks when it comes to love to help you?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Can you grant me the wish of giving me the confidence to ask her out?

          • THE MOST MIGHTIEST TAPIR

            If she doesn’t have a boyfriend yet, go for it.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I don’t know if she does.

          • THE MOST MIGHTIEST TAPIR

            Well then try asking her out.

          • The Mighty Tapir

  • Simon PhoenixKing

    Hmm. I guess I should’ve submitted my riff to Masterlord instead of Dubs(I assume he was preparing to head to D.C. already when I did), cause it wasn’t put here and it surely would’ve crushed all of ya’ll.

  • Stanley

    I know Watain get’s no love around the toilet bowl, but this was almost my final submission. Skip to 5:06 for the fade out or just sit back and listen to the majesty unfold in it’s entirety. Beautiful!

    • another good Watain fade-out (WITH guitar solo!):
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rswT58Jfc4

      • Stanley

        Probably Watain’s finest hour! And that solo, man it’s fuckin’ awesome. You can stick that one into next week’s solo of the week and you’ll get my vote!

  • Warheart

    Tough competition, especially with Emperor and Cathedral, but the opening riff of Fate of Norns is one of my absolute fave riffs of all fucking times, so I’m biased and there goes my vote.

    Glad to see no one included most obvious choices like Davidian or Walk.

    I was thinking of one song to compete, then I realized it wasn’t a fade out but an outro riff, so maybe that could be a theme for a future RotW?.

    • BLVKKBEVRD

      This guy knows what’s up

    • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

      This was not only supposed to be a fade-out riff, but a good fade-out riff. Obviously that is why Walk or Davidian is nowhere to be seen or heard.

      • Warheart

        Actually, I really like the Davidian fade out LOL.

            The CIA gives me far more nightmares than The UN. Any organization that got its start by employing “former” Nazis should be cause for major concern.

          • JWG

            Then there’s our equivalent, the CI-Eh.

            But seriously. CSIS isn’t so much of a problem. It’s CSERC and their willingness to do the NSA’s dirty work so the NSA can claim to be at least sort of clean (comparatively speaking).

          • KJM

            ^_^

            You’ve given me a couple new scary acronyms to read about. Thanks!(i think)

          • JWG

            The tricky part is that CSIRC shares its acronym with a more innocuous review body of CSIS, making it really hard to Google separately; which is clearly deliberate.

            Add the the similar CSIRT, CIRC, and CCIRC with visible pages and it’s easy to doubt its very existence – but it was directly referenced in the Snowden NSA leak they’ve since wiped from the internet.

          • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

            the main msm propaganda categorization–of any “nationalist” is to try and equate them as being “nazis”–it is designed to equate a false reality grid perception—and to tie in allegiance to the u.n. as being “correct on a jewish level”
            —-
            in 2014—israel was attacked by “hamas”-with rockets
            –in the media –alot of fading ‘grunge ” acts—rushed in –to attack israel—as being in the wrong–in this act—and betraying the perception that ‘hamas” is actually a “Controlled” fake “religious” —terrorist group—with ties of loyalty to the u.n.

            anyways—-this was sort of a beginning of the cracks in the dam—of u.n. media control

            people like kris novoselic,neil young,eddie vedder—-went against israel—and “bit the hand that fed them”—from an audience perspective—-
            and showed their true loyalty——to the u.n.-and not “israel”and or jewish artistic interests


            for the first time—-the “comedy central” type “average
            jewish fans—could see the truth—-that pro u.n. media (agenda 21) are actually “against” everything that israel stands for —and are actually the real “nazis”

            shit on “zardoz”—-fake ass pro u.n. media—that abused ties with kissinger and other artistically inclined “jewish sponsers”–

            in order to try to piss on the jews

  • There are too many good riffs today. Bloodbath, Gojira, Incantation, Amon Amarth, Skeletonwitch, Necrophagist, Cathedral, Katatonia, Cynic, Emperor, and Bolt Thrower. I don’t know as if I can choose.

  • Stanley

    Back from my 13 mile run to claim victory!

    • Stanley

      Oh shit, maybe not. I just voted for Bloodbath and now I see that the Masterlord is pipping me! Damm it.

      Hades Rising is certainly the best song on The Fathomless Mastery and that outro brings me to tears. Well done Xenosapien!

  • The Satan Ov Hell

    • see, that’s why these are skewed!
      edit: no they don’t!

    • The Mighty Tapir

      So they also win the whiffs? I agree with that.

      • i don’t know how we can compete with all these young people acting like they’re interested in grandpa metal!!

        • The Mighty Tapir

          • The Mighty Tapir

            I don’t even like BT and I can agree with you. Halen stinks.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah had to edit I had many lines of >>>>> cut part of the message out. We will always be brothers in this hate.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I hate very few bands but I hate Van Halen with Sammy Hagar. I do respect EVH though as he has influenced so many guitar players.

          • heeeeeeeeeeelooooooooooooo baaaaaaaaaaaaabyyyyyyy!
            check mate Scrimm

          • Scrimm

            I place Bolt thrower firmly in the dad metal category.

  • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

    So, seeing that Katatonia has no chances of victory I vote for Gojira, because not only is it a great riff, it also has a chance of dropping Masterlord.

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            Hell yes.

    • Stanley

      That Katatonia riff is sweet though.

      • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

        Very

        • Stanley

          I love the direction that Katatonia has taken and continues to take.

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            Their latest is nowhere near my favorite, but good nonetheless. I actually feel I’ve neglected some mid-era albums and need to get back on them. Eagerly await their new directions with new members.

          • Stanley

            It’s not my favorite either (that’s Viva Emptiness) but I just checked iTunes and I’ve played the Dead End Kings album 56 times. The song Ambitions has been played 71 times. Shithouse!

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            What Katatonia would you recommend for a noob?

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            Debut is a nice slab of doom feath. Latest (not the acoustic) is some sorrowful semi-prog and Viva emptiness is all around greatness. So there.

          • I started with Dead End Kings, and went backwards. Also, Last Fair Deal Gone Down (or something like that) <3

    That Marduk was ace. Have Marduk always been ace? I was a bit put off by Panzer Division Marduk, but should I reconsider? Bearing in mind that I mostly deaf buy albums, what should I go for?

    • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

      Many of their albums are good and unlike PDM, Those of the unlight, Serpent Sermon and a few others at least.

    • The Mighty Tapir

      Heaven Shall Burn… When We Are Gathered is pretty goooood,

  • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

    I would’ve probably gone with this. Around 4:30

      • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

        They are fricken good. Also, opening for Arcturus next month

        • The Mighty Tapir

          Me digs Arcturus as well. Currently trying to find a good solo for next week.

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            I sent one already, but… I’m trying find another… a little different.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Just sent mine. Hopefully I do better than the last time (got 0 votes then).

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            The hell did you send last time then???? I think even mine got one.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            I sent Univers Zero. People here don’t like good RIO.

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            Oh yeah, I remember now

    • Commander Shepard

      You’re supposed to vote on the riff not on the band!

      • The Mighty Tapir

        It’s not like he’s the only one who has done that.

        • Commander Shepard

          multiple people are failing at this then.

        • KJM

          If I voted based on favorite bands, I’d almost never vote at all. If the song itself doesn’t interest me, a well done riff or solo isn’t going to do that much to change my mind.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Vote for me next week plz bby

          • KJM

            You got it, sugartits. Maybe.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            I’ll stabb you if you don’t do it.

          • KJM

            Remember, I’m in The US where even the pacifists are weaponized.

            I’ll have you kidnapped and brought here. I will watch as you run naked and scare in our woods when it’s dark. I shall strike from the darkness.

            That would actually be pretty tough. The parking lot next to my back yard is a hangout for local police. There’s always at least one cruiser/SUV there and there are at least 2 CCTV cams pointed at my backyard(such as it is).

          • The Mighty Tapir

            We’ll find a way, JJD senior.

            Hey, I talk and post a lot of current and classic Metal. You just don’t like it, Mikey.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            I just want you to vote for me, Blake.

          • KJM

            Then get me the Krokodil faster.

          • THE MOST MIGHTIEST TAPIR

            It’s hard! The Russian dealer was shot by a rival and he refuses to sell it to Finland.

            This was so much easier when only 2-3 international cartels were running everything. : (

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            That’s uncool. I love my classic rock and my current rock and my classic metal and my current metal. Don’t drag his love of the classic rock I love into this!

  • Simon PhoenixKing

    To settle the blasphemy of you wieners bashing Bolt Thrower, understand this: They are not a band that slams or “melts faces” with wanky tech noodling. They are not prog or post black ambient and they damn sure aren’t fucking “grandpa metal”. They are a legion; an unstoppable force in audio form. Their songs are meant to convey a steamroller or a tank crushing everything stupid enough to get in their way. If that sounds “generic” to you, then I can’t help you when the inevitable storm comes to lay waste to everything you know.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    • I won’t argue with anything you just said, but I never EVER want to hear a Bolt Thrower fan complain about bands like Cannibal Corpse, Abysmal Dawn, or Jungle Rot either. Is that a fair statement?

      • Abysmal Dawn>>>>>>>

      • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

        CC is too noodly but not enough weedly and not powerful enough. Abysmal Dawn has an abysmal quality to most of their songs, and don’t really crush. Jungle Rot is a boring version of BT

        -Bolt Cathcher fan.

            I’ve seen them once, last year, no earlier. They were on quite a good shape. But srs what’s the thing qith a Britiah band doing one European gig a year. Last year Finland (actually ’13, I’m not yet used to 2015) and Britain in ’14, but always just one.
