Just went to watch the new Rammstein video on YouTube and it's been blocked on on copyright grounds. On their official channel.

Fucking hell YouTube.

Edit.

Actually it's an old video, not a new one. Still nuts though.

As you can tell from my flash new avatar, I've decided to get into edgy black metal about fifteen years after the traditional adolescent entry age. I'd always ignored it but the stupidly fun Lords of Chaos film piqued my interest so I picked up the final boss that is Transilvanian Hunger from a record store in Paris a few weeks ago. Let it wash over me and realised that for extreme music, my brain decided to essentially imbibe it as ambient music. Just this weird, lo-fi, expressionist painting. It's freezing cold. I know that's how everyone describes it, but it can't be stated enough. Fucking beautiful, and one of my new favourite albums. 

Fenriz seems like a chill bloke, too, which is refreshing. I'm not one of those people who brings too much morality to the artists he's listening to, but I wouldn't be paying money to see a band like Watain live, with all the rumours of animal abuse. Can't help but love the vibe of stuff like De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas and Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse even though there was some right dodgy boys involved in those records, but my head seems to allow for it as they're more like historical artefacts. 

It's an odd one. I love the atmosphere of so much of this stuff - and I'll always go and see a black metal band at a festival now just for the show - but the odd band you get who purport to being actual theistic satanists crack me up to no end. Lunatics.

You're missing out, they're great live. Maybe don't stand near the front though...

You'll get your eye poked out with a Sieg Heil?

There's a new Boris album out then too, depending on they're mood it could have a mainstream sound. I love how they can do pure noise one day and pop metal the next.

The thing that excites me the most about this is that they've said they're finally going to put their back catalogue on Spotify when the album comes out.

I’d read that too, but haven’t seen anything concrete to confirm it, so I’m managing my hopes for that. Obviously it would be great if it happens, but if it doesn’t then I’m not going to be annoyed

That new Slipknot song is a pure nostalgia trip, they've melded everything from the most popular tracks of the first two albums trying to create something that'll be played in rock clubs for the next decade.

It's a fun song, but does feel a bit stitched together. It doesn't flow naturally and it tells when the DJ part comes

I’m staying away from it until the new album comes out as I tend to like listen to them in full. I’ve heard ‘All Out Life’ but that’s been around since last December.

I grew up with Slipknot so I'm partial to them. Digging the new track. The video's great, because Clown's ego is clearly off the charts as their visual director. Some interesting theories floating about that Chris Fehn never left the band and that's it's all a bit of a ploy. I kind of hope it's true because the new mask in the video with the nose cut off the face etc plays into that beautifully. 

Interesting to note that All Our Life isn't on the new album. Hell of an in-between tune.

yeh ive been seeing some stuff about Fehn. Theres a new member in the video wearing a gold mask so people are trying to figure out who it is. Similar thing happened with the new members when the last record came out.
