Download Part 1, Part 2– Possessed (1985)

VENOM, ist krieg. 4th album fittingly named Possessed. Sounds like somebodys smashing up a junkyard… harmony dies. My own favourite in the Venom discography, a discography that contains a lot of good and a lot of bad. I read recently that Cronos, the singer, has gotten himself addicted to heroin over the last years – sad but not surprising? He looks a bit weary now a days.

I made a spontanious trip to Norrköping a few days ago with Hannes and Anna to meet up with our friends in Mamont to see Graveyard perform a live show, for free! Turned out the show was for some sort of festival and we had missed Year of the Goat who played a couple of hours before Graveyard.. After the Gravyard gig we drank the last of our beer and went on a bar stroll that seemed to last forever, since we had nowhere to sleep we ended up in a underground club called ”Blå Rummet” if i recall the name correctly, the guys from Skraekoedlan had taken control of the dj booth. Only bad thing was that we didn’t have any place to sleep. The night/morning ended with me falling of a window at the train station where I had crept up to try to get some sleep. I felt pretty mashed up when we finally got home to Örebro.

I’m ending this set of blurry photos with a pic of this most awesome Jofama mc jacket I’ve gotten my hands on! Mint condition, made in the 70’s in Malung and it’s never been used before, fits me like a glove.

Why did i buy myself a trucker cap? One of many mysteries I dont have the answer to…

Paradox nr. 1 
Looking back it’s kind of a good thing Tom G. Warrior had a suicidal psycho mother who’s cats pissed on his clothes, making him the victim of serious bullying- Because, if it wasn’t for that sad story we probably would never have had Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Triptykon and all his other less famed projects.

Paradox nr. 2 
Facing facts, I know I  cant sport headswear of any type! I just dont look good in headwear. Apart from that I’m not a big fan of caps.. and trucker caps are especially hard to look good in, even if you actually fit in headwear, wich i dont. Therefore i must ask myself.. WHY then do I spend what little money I have on a trucker cap?
My theory is that my love for Hellhammer compensates for my disliking of caps.

Spires over the burial Womb

Woho, finally got some spare time for the first time in like a month.. studying really is a fulltime occupation! Well I’m back in my hometown for a couple of days so i figured I’d post some albums!
Here’s some really dark ambient stuff.. in the veins of Dead can Dance, Sunno))), Lurker of Chalice etc. I think this band used to be called ”Emit” but then switched name to Hammemit for this realse. Emit was a black metal/ambient project that featured a member from Ofermod. This realese however has more of a strictly ambient sound with some medieval melodies and gregorian chanting.

Enjoy.

Know I’m of to the capitol to see OM!

Too extreme! Malign

Download- Divine Facing/Fireborn (2005)

Malign is too evil for you, too evil for me as well. They will have your soul if you dont watch out. They recide in the capital of my homecountry, Stockholm, more known for it’s death metal than it’s black metal. I think I read somewere that one of the members of Malign got into his head once that it seemed a good (evil) idea to stop showering. Resulting in some strange fungus starting to grow on his body, wich is just downright stupid and disgusting. They’ve not produced that much material over the years, 2 demos 2 ep’s, but it’s high class material! The two ep’s featured here as a compilation. They first appeared on the map in 1995 with a demo, ingeniously named ”demo”! On a more recent note, I think they played a live show a couple of months ago with Watain and The Devil’s Blood so maybe they’re active again?

As stated above top notch black metal!

”Red eyes eats through, the vast nocturnal landscape”

Posted in Black Metal, Bullshit ! with tags , , , , , on 27/12/2011 by co)))ven

There was a time when I thought that a demo featuring a mountainside and a forest landscape was the essence of black metal… Still it’s fascinating isn’t it? The hole concept of hiking on a forest mountainside never gets old. Is it due to a lack of imagination or just the fact that it looks sort of nice?

Nocturnal weather, nocturnal hammer!

Download- Live in Zbraslav (1989)

Todays weather has offered nothing but greyscales, sort of how it seems to have been in Zbraslav around the spring of 89′ when the blasphemous tones of Master’s Hammer, featured in the photo, was caught on tape! These Czech black metalers have been turning the cross upside down since the unholy year of 1987. The bands headstart into black metal and the fact that they’re from the Czech republic does of course add positively to the bands kvltitude. I’m going to be a bit bold and state that whilst this might not be Master’s Hammer’s greatest moment, you’ll probably find it to be grimly low-fi and relentless enough  to satisfy you’re crawings for obscure metal from eastern europe.

Is that a wheelchair? a sled? or the throne of tyrants?

Negative surprise of the day- I’m to poor to see Toxic Holocaust perform live in Malmö tonight.
Positive surprise of the day- My local record store has a bunch of cheap Inquisition albums that I’m about to lay my hands on as soon as my financial situation is improved!
