These Never Get Old
‘The Evil Mind’ Will Posses You
Surgat just keeps getting extreme especially with their recent single “The Evil Mind.” This track is far more lit than any hell fire and more aggressive than Saytyn itself! You can buy this single now at Bandcamp now and be sure to stay tuned with what they’ll do next and give them a like!
Shred After Dusk!
Bored after a long day at the job and wanna do some late night noodlin’ on your faithful guitar? Well this playthrough courtesy of Greek metallers After Dusk will give you something to do and add a touch of epicness to you night. Guitarist Bill shreds till the very end of this playthrough for their track “A Corpse With A Smile,” which is off of their latest album The Character of Physical Law. Because I know you’ll fall in love with this track, get your copy of the album here!
Gurschach To Puzzle With ‘Dark Matter’
San Francisco experimental band Gurschach is ready to defy the “norms” of metal and will release their debut album Dark Matter on Dec. 1. The best part about this entry is that they have released their first single the ritualistically hip “Undead Empire.” Besides this track having a badass title to it, it will keep you on your toes especially once you are greeted with that build up.
If you haven’t listened to these guys before, then you’re in for a different type of flavor because this quartet ain’t afraid of standing out and mixing all sorts of wonderful musical elements. That’s right, these guys are a wild card through and through. Check out the rest of their material in their bandcamp and prepare yourselves to be amazed!
This One’s ‘To Your Brethren in the Dark’
Satyricon are at it again and have delivered yet another bad ass music video for their track “To Your Bretheren In The Dark.” This half monochromic, half Technicolor visual is the perfect complement to this hellish and suspenseful Grimm tale. And yes I may have watched a few times by now… Check it out below and see why! Be sure to snag a copy of their latest album Deep Calleth Upon Deep and if you’re uncertain, see what we thought about it.
Decapitated Singer And Bassist Make Their Court Appearance
The saga continues with Decapitated and is now vocalist Rafal Piotrowski and bassist Hubert Wiecek’s turn to make an appearance in the Spokane County Court due to the rape and kidnapping charges they are charged with. Piotrowski is charged with first-degree kidnapping and second degree rape and Wiecek is charged with first degree kidnapping and third degree rape.
Just last week, guitarist Waclaw Kieltyka and drummer Michal Lysejko made their appearance in the same court with similar charges. Kieltyka is charged with first degree kidnapping and second degree rape while Lysejko is charged with first degree kidnapping and third degree rape. The band currently have a bond set at $100,000 aside from having their passports confiscated by authorities.
I’m sure all of you are well aware of this scandal so I won’t really get in to it yet and there’s not much of a development so far. All yours truly is gonna say is goddamn this is all still so surreal. It’s important to remember two things, it’s important to stay neutral BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, slut shaming and victim blaming is beyond low and is a cancerous tumor in our society. Don’t feed that tumor, no one likes that shit.
Ex- Marilyn Manson Guitarist Daisy Berowitz Dies
Co-founder and original guitarist Daisy Berkowitz, whose real name was Scott Putesky, succumbed to stage four colon cancer at age 49. Putesky can be heard in the first two Marilyn Manson albums Portrait of An American Family and Smells Like Children before departing in 1996 due to creative differences.
Marilyn Manson took to Instagram to commemorate a picture Putesky and shared an old image of them during their younger days in the band stating that though they may have had their differences, he still remembers the good times they had. Our deepest condolences to Putesky’s family and friends and the Marilyn Manson camp.
