The light of Lucifer is a light burning severely.
The light of Lucifer is blinding.
Icarus failed and fell. The light of Lucifer is punishing for those who are arrogant. 
It is also rewarding for those who dare to defy human spiritual boundaries.
Knowledge is power...it is also a dangerous tool in the hands of the unworthy.
Dangerous for the unworthy himself.
Kill yourselves you fucking pigs.
This shall be the only catharsis.

The revelation of doom

'Tis one of those times were you have to shut up and feel.

Satan bless thee.

Alor Mal Ki

Chaos inverted in glorious fulfillment. A revival from the stars.
Concsiousness manifested by the inner eye,
as a glimpse of truth behind all life.
Reflecting the nightmares of my waking shell. Blinded only by a mask.
A face that no one remembers.

Alor mal ki
Place your visions in me!

Another sleepless night gave me the opportunity to dig into my rusty record collection and remember some old favorites. I pity my neighbors. Not really, I don't...fuck them.

Anarchus - Final Fall of the Gods

If I had to listen to just one grindcore band these mexicans would be my choice. Fucking hateful grind guaranteed to make your ears bleed. They were one of the great sensations of the underground in early 90's. Each and every one of their recordings is recommended.

Septicemia - Sabbath Conventions 
Greek occult death metal band that is not widely known, unlike many other bands that are not half as good as Septicemia were. This EP is from 1993 if I am not mistaken. A great work.

Merciless - The Awakening 

The first release of Euronymous' Deathlike Silence this is deathrash of the highest quality. Whoever doesn't know of this record is on the wrong page. Monumental.

 Pentagram - Fatal Prediction / Demoniac Possession

The latin americans have a unique way to play thrash/black metal. Darkness, violence, Satan and death.
Fuck you and goodnight.

Too old, too cold

Darkthrone's influence in the shaping of black metal post 1990 is more than obvious. Probably the most influential band  to ever emerge from norway, even though they were never the best one. I have been following them since their demo days as they were trying to find their way by becoming a more and more technical death metal force with a strong occult foundation. The Soulside Journey debut is one of the best death metal records ever made. Then came the transformation that was sealed with the famous and unfortunately overhyped 'trilogy' of A Blaze in the Northern Sky, Under a Funeral Moon and Transilvanian Hunger. Important records for sure, that triggered the instant flow of dozens of imbecile copycats that had completely mistaken Darkthrone's lo fi primitiveness with musical incompetency.
I have to admit that the present incarnation of the band still leaves me indecisive. Of course everyone is willing to give them credit for doing whatever the fuck they want. For me this is not a big deal as this should be the norm and I'm not into congratulating anyone for doing what he is supposed to do. Their new record is fun to listen to. It's metal, it's punk, it has memorable songs. A pity that I don't listen to music for fun.

Seriously damaged by...
Merciless - The Awakening
Phlegethon - Drifting In The Crypt
Black Hole - Land Of Mystery
Cathedral - The Guessing Game
Orcivus - Est Deus in Nobis

It's this time of the year again...

...The lamp is on the cross...rejoice.

Two records that are a perfect medicine in order to keep sane these days...

Twilight - Monument To Time End 

I downloaded it. I loved it. I'm definitely going to purchase it. Much better and more complete than the first album, probably owing a lot to the more diverse line up.For example I like the idea of Isis'  Aaron Turner playing black metal (in the widest sense of the term). I like the result even more. This is one of the rare occasions where although the musical outcome is a mix of so much different ingredients (Leviathan, Nachtmystium, Isis, Krieg, The Atlas Moth, Minsk) it is so masterfully crafted that makes perfect sense. Dark, raw, unsettling, psychedelic...All is one.

Why Angels Fall - The Unveiling 
 Excellent esoteric doom. It is also in accordance with the christian grief of these easter days, so your neighbor cannot complain. Not much to say. This is music to be felt, not to talk about. Two really long tracks that if experienced correctly will drag you along and will not let you breath before the journey is over, after 78 minutes. I was mesmerized to the point where minor faults did not matter. I can't even remember them...except the clumsily pronounced ancient greek (an excerpt of the gospel according to John) in the beginning of Neo Genesis. Every mistake here is overshadowed by the sheer magnificence of this work. 
Εν αρχή ην ο Λόγος...indeed.

I was thinking of Celtic Frost's Cold Lake the other day. For me this is the most embarrassing moment in the career of the most important extreme band just because it is mediocre. Not because of its musical direction, not because of the image they had adopted not because of anything else than its complete incompetence to be the worthy successor of a monument like Into the Pandemonium.
All these said I really wish that people would stop calling Cold Lake a glam record. I know, most of the people are imbeciles that listen to music using their eyes more than their ears and soul. The image of the band back then had a lot to do with glam but had Cold Lake been a glam record, Megadeth would be something like Poison. And I don't mean the german Poison.  

I leave you with a video to celebrate the death of the lamb...if the bad sound quality annoys you, you can go fuck yourself. Ears must bleed.
