Washington Think Tank with W.: Can these blackened hearts break free?

It’s a little after 8:00 pm here in Middle America. I’m sitting in a hotel room after an entire day attempting to solve all the world’s problems. I’m tired, and I could use a glass of scotch. However, I know that you, my beloved citizens, still need me. So I shall not rest. I shall not falter. I must do what is right. I must continue the proud tradition of the Think Tank. But, I need your help, because this next question is a doozy.

Today’s Question: Do supergroups ever work?

Citizens of the Toilet, please answer something for me. Do supergroups ever work? Can a collection of massive egos every truly create something better than the sum of their parts? Sure, you might have the rare example of a decent band, but for every supergroup like Murder Construct, we’re given three Hellyeahs. How many times has your heart been crushed after you blew all your anticipation over something that didn’t quite live up to the expectations? Dear friends, are supergroups ever worth it?

If you were offered the role of that omniscient nebula from Futurama and all of humanity was proffered to you to will as you please, could you concoct the one supergroup to end all of the arguments? Perhaps, but that is well-tread ground. Therefore, I’m going to up the ante and set even stricter guidelines. Could you assemble an untouchable POWER METAL supergroup composed of BLACK METAL musicians? Is it even possible? Let me try.

Vocals: Ihsahn – He has proven his dynamic range in his solo efforts.
Lead Guitar: Ice Dale – The man knows his way around a hook, as demonstrated by Audrey Horne.
Rhythm Guitar: Jeff Dunn – Dude knows his way around a riff.
Bass: Robin Isaksen – Let’s be real here; this position doesn’t really matter. But, Keep of Kalessin’s bassist knows how to play epic music.
Drums: Proscriptor McGovern – He could play literally anything and shriek like a banshee while doing it.
Keyboards: Ashley Jurgemeyer – Just to piss off the trve metal crowd.

Well, do you think you can beat my top tier black-hearted power metal group? Sound off in the comments below.

Don’t know what the Washington Think Tank is? This is a weekly column where your former President poses a pressing question and allows the top minds at the Toilet ov Hell to investigate his query.

  • NefariousDude

    I’m not sure how to formulate the supergroup you’re looking for but I do know I am totally excited for the necromancing the stone super group. Like a a shreddier ghost!!

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Hail of Bullets was pretty fucking good. I’d guess that’s a death metal supergroup

  • Cock ov Steele

    Did SOD count as a supergroup? I know at that time it was really just Scott and Charlie but Anthrax wasn’t megahuge at that time. And past events have told us that Scott Ian should not do supergroups.

    • Wasn’t Billy their roadie or something at the time? I don’t think it counts.

      • Cock ov Steele

        I believe he was.

    • Scott was in another “Supergroup” with Keith Buckley and the ex-bassist from ETID, two dudes from Fall Out Boy, and a guy from Volbeat.

      • I remember hearing this on Satellite Radio, sucked.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        I forgot about this ian dud.

    • KJM

      It’s essentially just Anthrax with a different vocalist.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      I would say yes, boy was that Billy Milano a legendary asshole though.

  • I’m firmly in the camp that there has never been a good supergroup ever. Unless you consider Iron Reagan a supergroup, maybe?

  • Necromancing the Stone is the answer. Look how shitty they are, look!

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    The biggest ever disappointment for me was the Åkerfeldt and Steven Wilson collaboration “Storm Corrosion”. Two amazing talents made such a boring album.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Never dare to disagree with my divine might again.

    • Beunhaas

      I thought it was fun. Not the best thing in the world but it has it’s charm.

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        Maybe I will give it another shot. It has been awhile, maybe I can appreciate it when my expectations are different.

        • Beunhaas

          It has been a while for me too, so I don’t know if it still holds up, but I can remember it being good.

    • Guacamole Jim

      FUCK YES. THANK YOU. The entire album, I’m convinced, was just them giving each other handjobs and recording it.

      • Beunhaas

        I would listen to that.

  • Beunhaas

    Vocals and bass or something I don’t know: George Clarke
    Guitar: Varg?
    Drums: This guy.

  • The only supergroup I can think of that is good is Killer Be Killed.

    • Beunhaas

      That was the first thing to pop up in my head. Though it seems everybody kind of forgot them.

      • Understandable, there’s a shit ton of high profile releases this year.

    • Guacamole Jim

      See, I didn’t ever really get on board with them. The music felt uninspired and bland.

      • Hmmm. I can definitely see where that would come from. Now that I think about it, they have several songs that I almost always skip.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Gave the album a first ever listen ’bout an hour ago. Not impressed, but need more time. It’s irritating though when sometimes I keep imagining how much potential the song has only that it wasn’t perhaps arranged in the best way possible.

    • I would probably like them a good 70% more if Cavalera wasn’t in the band.

  • nbm02ss

    The lineup for Bloodbath’s “Nightmares Made Flesh” album.

  • Conquering Dystopia could be really really good if they added some vocals.

    • Elite Extremophile

      But think of the weedlies we would miss out on! Think of the children!

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        The children need weedilies Jack. You can’t let them live life without weedilies and deedilies.

  • Throw This In The Blender
    (off topic, random supergroup)

    Vocals: Serj Tankian
    Lead Guitar: Mike Sullivan
    Rhythm Guitar: Todd Jones
    Bass: Billy Sheehan
    Drums: Dave Witte
    Keys: Elton John

    • Guacamole Jim

      Replace Sheehan with Tony Levin and I’m right there with you.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      Here’s my group

      Drummer: Phil Collins
      Keyboard: Keith Emerson
      Vocals: Neal Morse
      Bass: John Wetton
      Guitarist 1: Kerry Livgren
      Guitarist 2: Steve Morse

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        This would be magical, only WHY neal?

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          Because I couldn’t think of anyone else. I wanted to put the singer of Camel in there but I can’t remember his name.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Andrew Latimer, he’d do mean flute too

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            He replaces Neal Morse because he rules. Also, I’m throwing Roye Albrighton of Nektar and Ian Anderson in there so that there can be a revolving lineup of vocalists.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I don’t think you could fail badly with that lineup plus they wouldn’t get even enough hype in this current era

      • Death

        That’s just horrible, save for Wetton.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          Nothing with Wetton and Latimer AND Anderson can be horrible

          • Death

            Has he changed it? Latimer and Anderson are great as well, but otherwise that line up is shit.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            You lie. Keith Emerson is not being thrown out and I can’t throw out Phil because I’d just replace him with Carl Palmer or Alan White. Also I was going to include Robert Fripp in place of Kerry but that just wouldn’t work.

          • Death

            BILL BRUFORD AND KERRY MINNEAR OR NOTHING, BITCH.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Gong’s drummer was pretty mad too

          • Death

            I’d be very pleased with Robert Wyatt as well.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Bill Bruford would work but I am not taking Keith Emerson out of there. I guess here is the edited lineup.

            Drummer; Bill Bruford, Robert Wyatt
            Keyboard: Keith Emerson
            Vocals: Roye Albrighton, Andrew Latimer, Ian Anderson
            Bass: John Wetton
            Guitars: Steve Howe, Robert Fripp, Steve Morse

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Didn’t Bruford play in a two drummer lineup before?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I think he did during the Union era of Yes when Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe combined with the 90125 lineup of Yes for the Union album and tour.

          • KJM

            I saw that tour.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Was it good?

          • KJM

            Indeed.

          • Death

            It’s instantly shit because of Keith Emerson. Every other instrument is drowned by him having rough sex with his keyboards.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            But he wasn’t bad in The Nice, Tarkus the song and also ELP with Powell

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            No. I am not getting rid of Keith Emerson. Who do you want me to replace him with, Rick Wakeman? How about Vangelis or Patrick Moraz?

          • Death

            Already said Kerry Minnear.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            No. I may love Gentle Giant but I refuse to get rid of Keith Emerson. Only he is worthy of this group of greatness. If you keep on protesting I will replace this whole group with people like Mike Portnoy and Neal Morse. I will put Anders Friden as the lead singer and make Neal Schon the guitar player. I know you don’t want me to do that.

          • Death

            I don’t care if you start replacing people. It’s already complete shit with Emerson in it.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I will put Lake and Palmer in here if you keep on saying that Emerson shouldn’t be in it. I will name this supergroup Emerson Lake Palmer and Friends if I have to.

          • Death

            I honestly don’t give a shit any more. It already has Emerson in it, it can’t get worse.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Hey the guy fron Gong, the drummer what’s his name Pierre? He’d kill Phil (figuratively) altough Phil in his prime was a good listen

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Some additions were made downward

    • Tyree

      It’s seven o’clock and I want to rock.
      Want to get a belly full of beer.

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      A lot of people flush Serj but I’ve always thought his vox are awesome. Mix of impassioned, occasionally deranged and even openly jokey makes for a whole lot of fun.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    Shrinebuilder

    • Cock ov Steele

      Dagnammit you’re right!

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      They were awesome

    • YUP

  • FeelTheDarkness

    Fantomas

  • Cock ov Steele

    Probot? I liked some of the songs.

    • FeelTheDarkness

      I love that album

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      I’m prepared to take a shit kicking but the first Roth solo album with vai and sheehan was pretty super and a great album that was far better than 5150.

  • NDNOvHell

    Iron Reagan!

    *Edit* Down!

  • Elite Extremophile

    A few of Phil Anselmo’s side projects are pretty good, but I don’t know if any of them other than Down would really constitute a supergroup.

    • FeelTheDarkness

      Superjoint Ritual

      • Elite Extremophile

        I’ve been listening to a lot of them actually, it’s what had Phil Anselmo on my mind. But the only other famous musician in it is Jimmy Bower, so I’m not sure if it’s really a supergroup. And Hank Williams III but fuck that guy.

        • FeelTheDarkness

          True

    • crazytaco_12

      I love Down, would definitely throw them in the pot of “good supergroups”. Love the first 2 albums and so far both of the EP’s.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      the only thing i didn’t like was that black metal dud phil did, was it called viking crown or something ?

      • Elite Extremophile

        Christ Inversion maybe?

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          yea, you are right , that is one of the bands, i looked it up and there was another called viking crown with him and killjoy on vocals, then there was eibon another fairly big supergroup with fenriz, satyr, maniac and killjoy. That covers the black metal. Guy is busy as fuck.

  • nbm02ss

    Nader Sadek.

  • Elite Extremophile

    DEVICE IS THE GREATEST SUPERGROUP OF ALL TIME HAVE YOU BOUGHT VENGEANCE FALLS YET?

    oh how I wish our bald savior would return to us

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    The original and the only one that counted.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJTbYMAjT_s

    • nbm02ss

      Emerson, Lake, & Palmer.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Bad Company.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I love you. ELP is my favorite prog supergroup considering Asia isn’t really prog.

    • Simon Phoenix

      if we wanna talk about Clapton, how about Derek and the Dominoes?

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

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        I wouldn’t call that a supergroup. Blind Faith, yes, but not the Derek and the Dominos.

  • Tyree
    • FeelTheDarkness

      Ohhhhh shit!!! Good good stuff

    • You can’t forget this thing.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwqhdRs4jyA

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        The Traveling Wilburys is one of my favorite projects involving Jeff Lynne and one of my favorite supergroups. That group could do no wrong considering Jeff Lynne, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan were in it.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      The Firm ruled. I wish they would reform.

      • KJM

        That would be great considering Paul can still deliver and Robert doesn’t want to do a Zeppelin tour. This time around they could do Bad Co and Zep stuff too.

    • KJM

      Saw this tour.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        the firm tour ? First album or second album tour. They must have played a lot of bad company and zepp material on the first tour. Also related, that death wish 2 soundtrack jimmy did is pretty good.

        • KJM

          Firm 1st album tour.

          Actually, they didn’t play any Zep or Bad Co songs on this tour. They did play cuts from Death Wish.

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    I loved the supergroup Chickenfoot and the Duran Duran supergroups Arcadia and The Power Station ruled. On the subject of crappy supergroups the album Union by Yes was techincally a crappy version of Yes with both the 90125 lineup and the Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe project. Also Adrenaline Mob has become a crappy supergroup since Portnoy and John Moyer have left and been replaced by the drummer of Twisted Sister and some unknown.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Was it ever good? AM?

      • Guacamole Jim

        Nope.

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        I never thought so. Too much cheese for me.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I liked stuff of their first album but besides that they have released crap.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          My only beef with them has been the terribad quality of the lyrics in the mouth of such a great singer

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            They did a good cover of Come Undone by Duran Duran considering Lzzy Hale was in it. I hate her and her band so much.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            She’s not THAT bad

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I hate her so much. She can’t even spell her name right and she is a shitty singer. I mean why call yourself Lzzy? Call yourself Lizzy if you’re going to call yourself anything!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Okay that is pretty stupid

  • Guacamole Jim

    I can’t quite put my finger on why supergroups never put out music that’s as good as the members’ individual projects. I think it has something to do with these talented members almost needing a band not quite as good as them to steer them away from being too self-indulgent. There are lots of elements I love from many bands, and it’s fun to think of how they would sound in a different context, or combined with a different riff, but you can’t do that in real life without losing the sound you wanted to keep. I think that context is important, and maybe in forming supergroups that context is lost, or forgotten.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Overhyped=let down

      • Yeah, I don’t think anyone can help but get excited when they hear the members of their favorite bands are all getting together. They just can’t meet people’s expectations, no matter how good they are. The fact that most aren’t good in the first place doesn’t help.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Precisely.

        • I also think they just don’t play to each musicians’ strengths as well as their original bands do. It’s a whole different type of chemistry.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    Asia

    • Tyree
      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        asia was hated so much in the 80’s and 90’s it was amazing. Pure billy ray cyrus achy breaky heart hatred. I am really surprised to see a new generation appreciate them.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      I’ve been lucky enough to see the original lineup of Asia on their last tour with Steve Howe in 2012. They still have the other three but Howe has been replaced by someone named Sam Coulson.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    Whitesnake

  • FeelTheDarkness

    Blue Murder

  • Tyree
  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    Stephen Pearcy did a great supergroup called Arcade with Fred Coury of Cinderella and a few other people from relatively famous hair metal bands. He also did a great supergroup with Al Pitrelli of many different bands and the drummer for some band called Transcendental Station.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      The only supergroup that includes Dio among others is the only gigantic supergroup that matters.

            **Spoiler Alert**

            GL, I hope you stick around for the 2 o’clock post to see one of the baddest motherfuckers in death metal profess his love for your guitar playing.

          • Tyree

            I’m looking forward to that!

          • Oh win! BYAH!

            **nerd alert** I keep a poster of GL in my closet at home, I am a total fan boy

            GL

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            did you ever get to see the classic lineup ?

          • I sure didn’t. I do not have a lot of faith that it will ever happen. I have seen Lynch Mob on a number of occasions though!

            GL

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          I love Blue Oyster Cult. I also love Neal Schon but they didn’t invite Steve Perry so that made me sad.

          • I guess I should have worded that differently, I love his playing, it just did not fit well with the other solos. Not that the other solos were at all played well. Most were quite sloppy.

            GL

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            They may have and he declined for reasons unknown (health, personal issues)

    • Lacertilian

      I’ve met alot of people that love the Fantomas.
      Mike Patton
      Dave Lombardo
      Buzz Osbourne
      Trevor Dunn
      I never really got very far into them but surely that lineup is worth a mention.

      • Virgil the Ghost Poet

        Don’t forget about Tomahawk!
        Mike Patton
        Duane Denison
        John Stanier
        Trever Dunn/ Kevin Rutmanis

        • Lacertilian

          I know a couple of cool Tomahawk songs but excuse my ignorance as I do not know any of those other members.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Patton Faith No More, Mr Bungle, Fantomas
            Dennison, Jesus Lizard

            Rutmanis, Cows
            Dunn, Mr Bungle

  • Simon Phoenix

    Wasn’t Mother Love Bone a sort of grunge supergroup? I always liked them.

    • FeelTheDarkness

      Kinda. Some of the guys were in Green River. They were local superstars

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Temple of the Dog.

        • FeelTheDarkness

          Temple of the dog came after Mother Love Bone

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I know, but that was more akin to a supergroup, given the then current success of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      Temple Of The Dog was the better grunge supergroup in my opinion.

  • Tyree
    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      No. That is not a supergroup. That is an abomination that even Satan would not dare to create.

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        It’s a shame Lou had to pay the price instead of Metallica, he was the one who had something to give still

      • Tyree
      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        Still better than St Anger.

        I knew I’d fail considering I’m not a power metal guy and I’d have to use dead black metal people to complete the assignment.

        • Howard Dean

          I use dead people to complete assignments all the time. You should have seen the coffee table I made in shop class!

    • Scrimm

      Nice, but I would replace the drummer with Shamaatae from Arckanum.

      • Howard Dean

        Shamaatae could also be like a spiritual director/mascot for the supergroup, too. Guy is the boss.

        • Scrimm

          YES good idea.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Take the drummer from Mgla as well. His work on WHTNVII was absolute magic

      • Howard Dean

        Good choice! Dude, that fucking track is pure magic. I was actually listening to WHTN on my commute to work today, so that uncanny riffage was stuck in my brain as I was making up this list. Byah!

        Fun fact: I almost made Varg my other rhythm guitarist, but figured I’m already enough of an asshole apologist by including Gelal from GBK. Plus, that much bigot in a single band would cause the icecaps to melt. Or something.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Also Grand Supreme Blood Court and Soulburn, pretty much the same members and both are real quality. Theyre at least super-ish group.

  • Tyree
    • Howard Dean

      THIS.

      • Tyree

        BYAH!

    • Scrimm

      BADASS.

  • W.

    You all fail for not completing the assignment.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      What is the assignment supposed to be?

    • Cock ov Steele

      But the knowledge we have acquired is indispensable.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Here
      Darkside (Mgla) drums
      Trollhorn (Moonsorrow etc.) Keys
      Eric Daniels (Soulburn’s the only black band he’s been to) Guitars
      Nökkvi (Svartidaudi) Guitars
      ICS Vortex (Borknagar etc.) Vox/bass (when he’s good, he’s good)

      • Howard Dean

        +2 for Mgla and Svartidaudi. That band would rip!

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          Goin’ to see Mgla with Bölzer next month, should be good. Also really waiting for the new Soulburn this month, they tell they’ve gone Black/doom and it’ Eric Daniels and Bob Baghus.

          • Howard Dean

            I’m so jealous about Mgla/Bolzer. That’s fucking awesome. I can’t complain, though: I’m going to see Dead Congregation in about three weeks. Can’t wait! Also: Bolzer should totally tour the U.S. sometime soon. One-offs at MDF are cool and all, but we want a fucking tour!
            EDIT: I remember reading an interview with KzR where he said Bolzer is going to do a short tour of the U.S. sometime in 2015. Totally spaced on that!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            It’s a one off festival gig here as well, I’d like a regular gig better because they should be able to play longer. But I sure as hell ain’t complaining with such an awesome lineup

          • Howard Dean

            Hear hear.

          • Tyree

            Shit! I need to get my ticket still for Dead Congregation. Thanks for reminding me.

      • Simon Phoenix

        I’d be legit stoked to see this.

        Add Henri Sorvali from Moonsorrow doing clean vocals and it would be perfect.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          He’s there already

      • W.

        I actually thought about ICS as a potential choice.

    • Mr.CustodialArts

      I don’t FEEL tardy. 🙁

      This is really phucking good.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Fuck, totally forgot about them.

      • Howard Dean

        Like the more aggressive cousin to Mgla. I fucking love Kriegsmachine. The Poles know black metal.

  • Scrimm
    • Cock ov Steele

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPHuQFN7L70 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uc2fodtVHKM Try these for supergroups back in the day (Although collabs were common for outlaw country guys)

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      No, NWA is the best rap supergroup ever. Any group that can combine Dr. Dre and Ice Cube among others is awesome in my book.

      • Scrimm

        No. Dr Dre and Ice Cube both suck. Westside Connection was good because of the other two members.

    • what about D12?

      • Scrimm

        I like Eminem but I pretty much stick to the west coast for rap.

  • Stockhausen

    Dan Brigs from Trioscapes, Dustie Waring and Blake Richardson from Glass Casket, and Tommy Rogers and Paul Waggoner from Prayer For Cleansing would make the best supergroup.

    I’m ready for the hate.

  • Tyree

    If this was a band I’d be excited:
    Vocals: Ethan Lee Macarthy
    Guitar: Trey Azagthoth and Robert Vigna
    Bass and backing vocals: Jeffrey Walker
    Drums: Vagelis Voyiantzis

    • Howard Dean

      Me too. They could be playing polka-based chamber music recorded on wax spools and I’d give it a shot.

    • W.

      This is a good answer, although I’m removing five points from your score because Azagthoth is definitely DM.

      • Tyree

        That’s very understandable. I just want to pass.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Ok, don’t want to make the W. mad. Easy list.
    Vocals: Fenriz
    Guitar: Fenriz
    Bass: Fenriz
    Drums: Fenriz

    Edit: Is this where I drop a mic, and walk off in defiance?

    • W.

      You have redeemed yourself, King

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Thanks Dubya!

        • W.

          You’re welcome. You and Howard Dean are at the head of the class.

          • Tyree

            Woah, I think some one else turned in their assignment late too.

    • Howard Dean

      I’m in. It would sound like this.

            we’ve played yer games—and you people are transparent as fuck

            911 truth movement is rising–no matter how many tired cliche little wannabe put downs–you wanna try

            the power belongs to the people—

            “oh gosh–are you gonna mention tinfoil hats now??”—oh wait—you already did that yesteday—-shithead failed internet “damage control”piece of dogshit

            internet 911 truth movement is moving ahead by leaps and bounds–

            shit on yer illegal fucking bullshit attempted intimidation bullshit

          • Howard Dean

            If only you knew the truth! You only know the handfuls of shit the sheeple media feeds you. Who do you think created the “truth” movement?! And why do you think we created it?!

            If you knew the truth your psyche would come apart at its proverbial seams. You aren’t ready. Have your “truth” and like it.

          • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

            united nations did 911

          • What did they dial 911 for?

          • Homo sapiens metallum

            Many anti-government conspiracy therories are just bullshit to produce a parallel society full of government, banking and globalization opponers.

            If this parallel society does not beleive any official medias/reports anymore and all their souces of news are run by conspiracy theorists, especially NWO, these people start to feed their readers with conservative religious views, anti-science (vaccine is evil ect.).
            They are not opponed by official media anymore and their readers, willingless as sheeps, start to follow a fate choosen by their new leaders. No one is questioning their thoughts.

            These leaders and their followers, call them masterminds and revolutionaries or agitators and their cortege, will never follow the path of freedom and happiness started in the renaissance but the call for suppression of minorities, shouted by their totalitarian leaders.

            They will bring mighty governments to fall, build facistic or theocratic states where opponents like you will be severely suppressed, concentrated, murdered.

            No one has the monopoly of thruth, no one has a right to call himself omniscient, no one has the right to force you to any belief.
            Call it the truth, call it a anti-conspiracist-conspiracy theory or just a lie.

          • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

            stopped in progress by the mexican police—-

          • Homo sapiens metallum

            What is coming after the U.N? People holding hands laughing? Singing songs and playing in meadows covered with flowers??
            I don´t think so.
            People are greedy, crimes for the fortune of nations are ground evil . They outlasted Rome, the third Reich, the UDSSR, they will outlast the U.N, the USA and every following system/State/ideology.
            Can you guarantee that any post U.N/Agenda 21,ect. state/system won´t continue or expand the crimes and inequalities we are facing today?
            I don´t deny the mexican congress building attacks, illegal mossad activities ect, you are nit a liar.
            I judge them for being more evil than everyone they fight against.
            I judge people who use conspiracy theories to spread hateful ideologys.
            Example:

            Economy is bad, prices exploding→ bankers are greedy→Jews often work in the financial system →Jews are evil (because they differ from us and are not many→ easy to discriminate )→hate Jews.

            I was complaining about the abuse of conspiracyt heories for dangerous ideologies.
            I don´t say they are wrong/evil but I say they can change a lot, maybe not to the favour of the innocent/minorities/peaceful opponents.

      remember those cheapo star wars figure rip offs that were made in mexico ? That says something about consumerism, the fact that they are coveted now is even more interesting.

  • Cock ov Steele

    All instruments: Cvnty Hvnt and his magical manifesto on how to Black Metal.

  • IronLawnmower

    Menace. They’re a good supergroup. (In my probably wrong opinion)

    • Beunhaas

      They’re a good supergroup.

      • IronLawnmower

        Hopefully we’ll hear more. Impact Velocity sorta reminded me of Voivod cira Dimension Hatross but at the same time being something I’ve never heard anything like before.

        • Beunhaas

          I thought the album was a bit repetitive, and I really disliked the last song on it, but I thought it had a really unique sound, and a bunch of really great songs.

    • crazytaco_12

      Dude, I’ve gotta buy that album already.

  • Praxis which was Bootsy Collins, Buckethead, and Brian from Primus

    • W.

      Praxis were pretty sick.

  • Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo

    Shrinebuilder yo

  • crazytaco_12

    I love Down and Cream. It’s funny because a lot of bands I like that aren’t supergroups feel like supergroups already. I mean, if I were to say before Human “oh yeah, Chuck Schuldiner should work with Paul and Sean from Cynic, and get Steve Digiorgio from Cynic”, that would totally seem like a rigged lineup.

  • crazytaco_12

    For Dubya’s assignment:
    Abbath – guitar, backing vox
    Strom – guitar
    Grutle Kjellson – bass
    Jan Transeth – vox
    Carl Micheal – drums
    Righ – keys

    • W.

      I can dig.

  • Renan Ribeiro

    Shrinebuilder is the perfect example of a supergroup that went in all the perfect directions. Too bad they only have 5 songs in their catalogue

  • Virgil the Ghost Poet
