Krisiun, I choose you!

On Tuesday, Brazilian death metal veterans Krisiun left a post on Facebook stating that their new album Forged in Fury (out this week via Century Media) has been posted in various places all over the internet. While that in itself is not particularly newsworthy, they did include one interesting piece of information:

One can expect album leaks and rips to be low quality. Some come from radio promos or demos and travel through the complicated system of tubes known as the internet. Sometimes you get what you actually want and sometimes your computer gets injected with a lethal dose of Sad Satan.

One thing you might not expect is that the speed of the album has been purposely slowed down. Krisiun claims that this has been done in an effort to harm the band. I’m not sure what proof they have, but I am definitely interested in hearing the full story. Is it an angry college radio DJ? An intern looking for revenge? A crazed Sepultura fan claiming “There can be only one”?

Why would someone do that? Are they just being a lazy prankster? Unless it’s hilariously slowed down to SUNN O)))-like proportions, why bother? Most people listening to the album via “alternative” means probably like the band already or weren’t going to buy the album in the first place.

With 9 studio albums, 1 live album, and multiple EP’s and demos, I don’t think something like this will adversely affect the band. It appears that the album isn’t on Youtube and there’s no way I’m going around torrent sites to find a crappy version. Only time will tell if what amounts to a prank will hurt record sales. In the meantime, you can safely listen to a proper song from Forged in Fury here.

While there isn’t a full stream of the album online yet, I think we can all agree that this is probably not what a full speed version sounds like:

    Damn, that’s weird as shit. I’ve heard the new one ain’t that great anyway. Perhaps those were reviews of the lower quality one? Was it reviewed on here?

    • Karhu mentioned it on Toilet Tuesday yesterday. He thought the version he heard was pretty lackluster. I guess no one will know for sure til Friday.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Damn, that’s strange.

    • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

      Listening to it. Not bad by any means, but it plods along after the third song. I’m kinda thinking they’ve gone as far with their formula as they can go, really.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        It was bound to happen. The last album I got excited about was Works of Carnage.

        • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

          Southern Storm was awesome, outside of that Sepultura cover.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Never really checked that one out.

          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

            Get on it! It’s pretty brutal, especially the first half!

  • Tyree
    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Yup, he’s gotten so slow.

      • Tyree

        They probably sped up the video to harm the band. Death by blasting too fast.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Nailed it.

    • 365chaosriddendays

      Hello guys, here’s the man who makes you think that speed of light is overrated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmsBslh_AIo

      • Tyree

        He was the best part of Dark Funeral when I saw them. Dude is a blast machine.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        It’s odd watching a lefty.

        • 365chaosriddendays

          No, he’s just chasing the left hand path.

          • Tyree

            I’ve been possessed by the left hand path of blast beats.

          • 365chaosriddendays

            Me too, praise the dark lord with some kickass drumming!

          • Tyree

            The Marduk drummer when I saw em 3 years ago was pretty fucking ridiculous too.

          • 365chaosriddendays

            Mate, you’re right, I love Marduk by the way, another inhuman drummer, I like Fredrik Widiks too, their actual drummer, his performance on “Frontschwein” rips, like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C49aZROuTgw

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Haha. Touche.

        • KSOFM,

          Hey man!

          GL

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Greetings, lifelover.

          • You been out touring or something? You extended absence has been… quite extensive!

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            He’s been here all along as Void Dweller.

          • WTF

          • Jajaja!!

          • Dang, I had no idea.

          • u srs? i have wondered that multiple times

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            He acted exactly the same. You couldn’t tell?

          • i suspected it. some days he was just too positive!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Not too much, I would say.

          • it was pretty fuckin funny when somebody compared void dweller to KSoFM, and his response was “but less whiny”

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You like that? I thought that was pretty cunting “edgy”.

          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

            And Void Dweller doesn’t say ‘cunting’, which is your trademark.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            This is true.

          • DCLXVI

            Cunting was used in RHRC first by Boz

          • KSoFm>>>>>>>>>Void Dweller.

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            Eh, you post old music and don’t like most things. Not hard to put two and two together 😉

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I guess. But I do like things. Just nasty and mean.

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            Mama knows, child. That’s why I didn’t say “anything”.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            I will never lie to you.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You just did…..you just did.

          • Tyree
          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers
          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            In honor of that and tomorrow.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I’ve been around.

          • Tyree

            That’s what she said.

      • Welcome to the Toilet!

        GL

        • 365chaosriddendays

          Cheers mate!

          • You should stop by more often, buddy.

          • 365chaosriddendays

            I’m new here, I knew about this site just few days ago but I will be a regular reader. Music tastes here are killer!

    • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers
  • This is new. I heard watermarks like bips or speeches or 128kbps mp3 in leaked albums, but not that it is slow down.

    I don’t care about Krisiun, but this is very weird.

    That made me remember when Rise of the Tyrant, from Arch Enemy, got released and I had to pass an entire year listening the album with those annoying bips, jajaja. Good memories.

  • a reviewer somewhere else said that the album loses steam somewhere in the middle. also, many people post YouTube videos at a slower or higher speed, to slip underneath the radar of copyright police. Krisiun’s comment could be a way of “squashing” the early, not-so-stellar reviews, while being truthful per to the YT work-arounds. a friend of mine is currently listening to the album and it does not slowed down at all.

    • iiiiiiiiiiinteresting

      • i’m just glad to see Brain Drill mentioned on this site

        • SAMESIES

        • Lacertilinger

          I don’t know what is real anymore

      • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

        *as you tap your fingers together and say that in the voice of Mr. Burns*

    • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

      Example: I think I posted a youtube stream of the Leprous album that was sped up.

      • To be honest, I’ve encountered even videos with the music with half tone up or sped up too and it just confuses me.

        That’s why I don’t use too much Youtube to listen music.

        • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

          I don’t know why anyone would use YouTube as their primary listening method.

          • play any band at 144p and it become trve kvlt

          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

            I wonder what Origin’s ‘Antithesis’ would sound like at full speed. Probably a blip?

          • Tyree

            I like to listen to my music in HD.

          • Or in [FLAC].

          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

            I only listen to music on 8 track or laser disc.

          • Lacertilinger

            but how does he feel about it?

          • Is this when we use the word “plebs” ironically?

          • Sheer variety and ease of access?

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            And butt-like quality.

          • Don Henley’s Ego

            I don’t know either.

          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

            I do, mainly because it’s good for finding new bands, and I don’t trust the vast majority of torrent sites out there.

          • Max

            The stuff labelled HD usually strikes me as being quite good quality. Usually.

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      CSI McNulty…I like your line of thinking on this Detective!

    • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

      About halfway through the CD, and agree that it plods along a bit as it goes along. I’ve always thought that past Southern Storm that they could use a second guitarist to expand the sound, but I doubt that will ever happen.

      • i my friend was never bored with it, though there’s a slow song or two. ultimately they do what they can as a three-piece, and i find it quite impressive!

  • DCLXVI

    I thought it sounded a little bit less than Satan. Hopefully the real version will bring more Satan.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    I can sympathize–I hate it when I record something so inhumanly fast and brutal that motherfuckaz gotta slow it down just for mortal human ears to comprehend it

  • I entered that FB status and they all people talking in that huehuehuehue kkkkkk brbrbrbrbrbr language! o.o) I need Dagon to decipher that.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt

    I typed this post much slower to avoid copyright infringement.

  • I think they were just trying to make a sludge album and this is as slow as they could go.

  • Stockhausen

    Awhile back I came across a bunch of slowed down death metal recordings on YouTube and now I can’t remember what any of them were. It was filthy and excellent. But not when the album hasn’t been released yet.

  • Angel of Death slowed down by 30%. Sounds sludgy, lol at the vocals.

    • siqqq

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Sounds like Entombed. At least the guitar tone does.

      • Tyree

        Wow, you are right.

      • Indeed! Even the drums and the bass.

      • There’s another at 300% slower. Not sure what to make of that one.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Wow, my guess it would sound like Sunn.

    • Don Henley’s Ego

      I’m enjoying this but I had to go to Youtube to watch it as it said playback on other websites was disabled.

      • I’ve been encountering that myself off and on. Not sure if that’s Youtube or the person that posted it.

        • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

          Not having that problem on my end.

        • Don Henley’s Ego

          I think it’s the person who posted it.

  • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

    I found a copy of it on Youtube, and I’m hoping like fuck it’s not the final product, considering they are my favorite death metal band. The vocals on this mix I found make it sound like he’s struggling at a sloth’s pace, the guitars sound wonky and slow, and the drumming sounds out of sync with the rest of the music. This is DEFINITELY not the final mix, I’m sure. Listen and behold:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVvQ8tTX_Dk

    • It says in the top left that it’s slowed down. You need to adjust it to 1.25 to make it correct.

      • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

        Doh!

      • speak english doc, we ain’t scientists!

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          God damn, that was funny.

        • Tyree
        • USE GAWTSTA CLICK DAT LIDDLE GEER THANGY IN THE BAWTUM RITE CARNER O THE VIDYA AND CHAYNG THE SPEED O THE VIDYA TOO JUAN POIWNT TO FYVE.

          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

            I’s cuns onlee cournt to potato. Numbers toour hard.

      • I was going to say it sounds slowed down because the vocals sound like a mentally disabled Cookie Monster.

  • CyberneticOrganism
  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Boom. Done. Sounds evil as shit.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrjhMqA2xUQ

    • OMG, this is terrifying. I know where the sounds are, but the ringing sounds gives more suspense.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        It doesn’t seem like the full version, or that it’s really 700% slower. But it still sounds rad as fuck. Of course the main riff is rad as fuck anyway.

        • Lacertilinger

          Ozzy’s screams around the 5:30 minute mark sound like he’s falling into the abyss of black.
          This is tits

    • Pre funeral doom.

    • Lacertilinger

      700%?
      What they fuck were they thinking?
      666% or GTFO.

  • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

    I decided to tinker with the speeds a bit on these. First video on 100%, second at 50%, third at 40%. Play at the same time, of course.

    About time I reposted this. It fits the context again.

    Slowed-down is totally demonic, in the best possible way.

  • Waynecro

    Brain Drill punches off every single ball and crushes dicks into a fine paste suitable for use as cake icing.

  • I saw something similar posted from Luci Turururuirruriruir’s Rhapsody. They said that songs had been altered on pirated versions.
