Simply the greatest video. It's the first thing I watch on Youtube whenever I get a new computer or TV. And it's my profile pic.

wow, something decent went green for this, and it's on the ENT tab...?


what next, a formal dropping of the video requirement and a -core prohibition?
 
2012-05-13 06:11:22 PM  
I am entertained by this video. I was wondering what would make it for today. Thank you subby.

CF (along with Bathory) was my intro to extreme metal.

Cold Lake broke my heart.
 
2012-05-13 06:18:14 PM  
I love these threads, I almost always come away with something to listen to.

Does anyone have any groove/thash they could recommend me?

I've been digging these guys lately as an example: Link

Celtic Frost was great.....and then someone told Tom that "Cold Lake" was a good idea for a follow up to "Into the Pandemonium". A piece of me died when that "Cold Lake" came out.

/ I still love Morbid Tales, To Megatherion and Into the Pandemonium. All are classic IMHO.

strangeguitar: Cold Lake broke my heart.


"Vanity/Nemesis" was also a giant piece of shiat. It's one of the few albums I've ever sold.
 
2012-05-13 06:41:38 PM  
I always preferred the Emperor's Return version of "Circle".

Nobody liked Cold Lake. And I'm pretty sure Mr. Fischer has disowned it.

Monotheist was an outstanding comeback though.

Weird, I was just thinking about this band a day or two ago - not the first time FARK appeared to be reading people's minds.

2012-05-13 06:57:06 PM  
Tom was barely involved with Cold Lake - he had disbanded CF at that point but resurrected the band with a different lineup a year later after ex-Coroner guitarist Olver Amberg contacted him about it. Problem was, Tom was totally burned out and relinquished all creative duties to Amberg and producer Tony Platt (who should have never been allowed near a CF album).

/I didn't mind Vanity/Nemesis so much. It had some really weird (and not in a good way weird like Pandemonium but in a "What the fark are you thinking" way) moments on it but also had some really solid songs.

Senior year in high school, we pack ourselves int my friend Kevin's car every morning and it's either Celtic Frost's Emperors Return, Exodus' Bonded by Blood, or Corrosion of Conformity's Animosity. Sometimes we made it to school, sometimes not.

Thanks for bringing it back to me subby.

Thanks for going to the trouble to link that, HighZoolander.

I have kept up with CF after all these years and I have come to the conclusion that someone waved a bunch of cash in front of Tom in the Cold Lake - Vanity/Nemesis days.

"Hair band image is the way to go if you want to make bank." is what I suspect was offered given the time-frame of the releases.

Unfortunately, the all mighty $ may have had an influence on Mr. Warriors decision making...thus killing a bit of me and my innocence.

still love 'em tho

No problem.

He goes into agonizing and interesting detail about Cold Lake in his book "Are you Morbid?" (a good read, particularly if you're a fan of the band; may be hard to find now though).

I'm surprised that I don't hate that album as much as I might. It's certainly his worst, but even that isn't as horrible to me as say, anything by a real glam band.
 
2012-05-13 08:29:41 PM  
I'm digging what I've heard from the newest Marduk album. Looking forward to hearing the rest and seeing them tour with 1349.

Marduk-Soul's for Belial

Funebrarum sounds more like melodic death metal to me, not doom-y at all, IMO. Then again, if I'm going to listen to doom, I expect DOOM. Funeral doom, to be exact (unless Messiah Marcolin is involved, of course - he gets a pass from me and can sing whatever his tubby heart wants). I should feel much, much better about my own life while listening to doom simply because everyone else's life apparently sucks. Then again, if a band classifies themselves as such, who am I to argue? No one. No one at all.

Evoken - In Pestilence, Burning. Doom. From the US, even. Rather rare for me.

A Hill To Die Upon - I Come As Black Fire Death/Black, also from the US. Stumbled upon this band last week and they're pretty good. They are Christers, but I get the impression they're just the corpse-paint-wearing, rowdy-crowd, black clad version of Christer that actually enjoys the genre of music they play rather than the "We shall talk incessantly about the J-Dude in our music and we only play this type of music we despise to try to proselytize to teh ebil sinners" types. Those kinds annoy me to no end.

Skálmöld - Baldur Just 'cuz I like 'em. The minute I saw the name of this band I thought "Njáls saga!", which is my favorite of the Icelandic sagas, so of course I had to check them out. They're Icelandic metal with folk/viking themes. I'm never really sure how to classify the folkish/viking themed stuff with the harsh/combo vocals. *shrug* Maybe I'll just start classifying things as "meh", "cool", "awesome", "totally awesome" and "shut that crap off".

Ne Obliviscaris' Portal of I finally saw the light of day and it's easily the best album I've heard this year.

Other good stuff:

Dopesmoker reissue
Lions of Tsavo

Vektor
makes the best thrash of the last 20 years.

HighZoolander: Witchcraft - Her Sisters They Were Weak (occult doom/kcor)


Witchcraft is great.

Good stuff. Skálmöld took me by surprise by being more awesome than I expected.

Genre labels are approximate, but Funebrarum are definitely (to my ear) more in the Autopsy/Incantation camp than a melo-death band is (of course, compared to Funeral Doom all of the above might sound pretty melodic). Here they are with a newer and doomier song (still firmly death metal too of course, but I like genre blends) -

Funebrarum - Delusions in the Sheltered Womb

Here's some funeral doom that may appeal to you -
Loss - Cut up, Depressed, and Alone

mea culpa; I just grabbed that from the Wikipedia entry on Cold Lake...CF was never my big cup of tea (as if that were that not apparent, heh...)

Celtic Frost hit when I was at a formidable time in my metal upbringing. I felt betrayed by the whole "image" of the band and it was a sad time in my life.


I am most definitely going to see if I can get that book. Either online or brick and mortar. thanks again

Since I wish to contribute, yet I am both busy and lazy, I'll just throw down a few French bands that I posted last week plus a rec for Saracen.

Blaspheme
Rozz
Sortilege
Attentat Rock
ADX
Demon Eyes
High Power

Triptykon (Tom Warrior's new band) is the only recent one that sprang to mind for me (they put out a live cover on the Shatter EP).

But it looks like there's been quite a few -

I like that newer Funebrarum and will definitely have to pick up that split disc with Undergang. I like Undergang and due to RL getting in the way haven't been keeping up with my music as much as I used to keep up, so I was unaware they even had a split disc out.

Loss is a new one for me. I like that über-doomy stuff when I'm in the mood for doom, so I'll definitely check more of their stuff out. Thanks!

I love how black metal bands always hang their hat on an upside down cross. Do they even realize that an upside down cross was representative of St. Peter? That is, by posting upside down crosses they are demonstrating their humility -- that they are not worthy to represent with an upright cross.

Even the pope has an upside down cross on his hat a a mark of piety.

Hey, whatever floats their boats.

lol

Whiteston: love how black metal bands always hang their hat on an upside down cross. Do they even realize that an upside down cross was representative of St. Peter?


Yes they do, and they don't care. But thanks to consistent use, the inverted cross has come to be a symbol of anti-Christianity. Because meanings change due to both context, time, and popular usage. Wear a swastika in a Jewish community and try to explain to them that it's actually a symbol of Norse paganism.

Duh. I'm pretty sure most people know that. It still offends some christians though, so it works. I just think because of the symmetry it can help make some awesome band logos.

Of course. Also, if you affirm Satan, you affirm God.

It's just imagery and anything seen as blasphemy works.
