This one is for DEITRIX... - Black Fucking Metal part 2



As promised here's more black metal for ya'll, but specially for DEITRIX since so far he's the only one interested in this shit. This is a Dark Funeral special, to celebrate my almost complete Dark Funeral discography (the discography itself is already completed, I'm just missing the DVD now). Unfortunately, as with most extreme metal, youtube is not a great source of videos. Most are bootlegs shot from the audience with crappy audio, which might make some sense for those who already know the songs, but someone who's listening to them for the first time will get a distorted vision of these songs, know what I mean?

Anyway, above is Open the Gates, from their very first EP, which has really awesome songs for a first effort. Unfortunately my favourite, In the Sign of the Horns, is not on youtube (fuck!), but the other 3 songs are. Besides the two mentioned songs, their first album also has the following:

Shadows Over Transylvania



My Dark Desires



Moving on, probably my all-time favourite Dark Funeral song is Thy Legions Come, from their 2nd full-lenght album Vobiscum Satanas, but once again the only video on youtube is crappy footage from a concert at Wacken Open Air. Still, that song fucking rocks, so here's the vid anyways:



Oh, and here's the trailer for the DVD, Attera Orbis Terrarum:



About black metal, this is a very unique sub-genre of metal music and it's above all an acquired taste. Don't expect to like it right away, because at first it's just going to sound like noise, distorted guitars and a guy screaming. Of course that for most people it will always sound like that, but try to listen to it a couple of times. Who knows, maybe after a while it'll suddenly start to sound more familiar and when you realize it you're already banging to some of the most extreme shit the metal industry has to offer.

I guess I won't be seeing any of these guys in the local church... lol

Well it's probably not going to be my choice of music, but the whole look into another genre was interesting.

They do have some pretty freakish artwork on their site as well..

So what else do you have in your ole' sketchbook Mr. Black Meatal..?

Definitely not :) In fact some of the first black metal bands were involved in church burnings in Norway (most black metal comes from there). You have to put that in context, though, taking into account the rather violent evangelism of Scandinavia which left a profound hatred towards christianity...

Anyway, yeah, it's not like I was trying to "convert" more people into black metal, or anything. I was just showing this stuff to anyone who might be interested, specially because I bet that most people don't even know that this shit exists.

Metal bands in general (not just the black metal sub-genre) are usually very prolific in great artwork. Just look at Mastodon's albums' covers for example. True pieces of art in my opinion.

Iron Maiden's covers are also great. Try googling for these bands and you'll see what I mean.

Mr Black Metal? LOL xD It's not like this is the only thing I listen to. I'm more like just Mr. Metal, since I listen to pretty much every type of metal music, from heavy/power to death/black with basically everything in between. I don't dig grindcore or brutal death metal, though... (too heavy, even for me)

As I said before, there's not much else to my sketchbook, at least recent stuff. Just a couple of unfinished sketches but nothing special that deserves being posted here... (or at least they're not worth the trouble of scanning and editing...). But I'll search my works anyway, maybe I'll find some forgotten piece of art :)

*FK stops headbanging and goes all dizzy* That's quite a trip you've taken us on Nebacha!

DEITRIX disse...

"grindcore or brutal death metal"

I have to see what thats all about..?
Doin' some googling now.

NebachadnezzaR disse...

Hope you liked it, Father, this is not the kind of trip you go on everyday :)

Maybe I'll do something like this again someday, about other genres

Oh, and did you listen to this in front of Mrs. Krishna or the kids? I wonder what they would think about this... lol =D (joking, DONT show this to the kids!)

DEITRIX, search for bands like Nile or Cannibal Corpse and you'll see what brutal death metal is. Right now I can't think of any grindcore band, but it's pretty close to that.

DEITRIX disse...

yeah, those guys look pretty wicked..!!
