Skelator is a favorite in the bay. They always pair themselves up with Slough Feg for shows.

So M3 is over, leaving for home today. It was very fun and I hope I will be able to do it again in the future. Expect a review by the end of tomorrow.

So apparently a bunch of people who started listening to black metal within the last three months are trying to stir up controversy (key word: trying) regarding Inquisition because they have a song called "Crush The Jewish Prophet."

Best part: "Why do they feel the need to include Jesus' ethnicity in the song title?!?!"

WELCOME TO BLACK METAL, I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR STAY SINCE YOU'VE OBVIOUSLY ONLY BEEN LISTENING FOR ABOUT 72 HOURS

Metal Injection: proving that even metal bloggers fall into the journalist trap of sensationalism and parroting BS over doing any research.

Fuck that site and Metal Sucks forever

Metal Injection is a joke, but there is some truth to that article. There is an old photo of Inquisition in front of a Nazi flag in the booklet of a compilation album they were on. Season of Mist is trying to bury everything now, but it seems like it may be too big of a challenge for them. Here's an interesting quote from Antichrist Kramer last year regarding the artwork for Obscure Verses for the Multiverse.

Quote:
I have received quite a few emails and messages concerning a post that I made here on this forum in early 2012 concerning the artwork for the new album, as I announced that I had begun work on it. I posted the news of the band's new album being worked on, and that Dagon called to let me hear some of the new riffs, and even emailed some tracks to me with him on guitar and doing vocals through headphones, just so that I could start getting a feel for the album and begin sketching ideas for the cover. I posted this publicly last year, and from that point up until around 3 months ago, I was indeed creating the album cover. It was to be an amalgamation of my ink style and my painting style, to create a juxtaposition between those looks and "raise the bar" for what people were to expect to see. There was a scheduled 7" that was supposed to come out prior to the album that was going to use a detail from the final album artwork as its cover, and act as a "teaser", which the final and full version was to be revealed when the album came out. The band never saw any of the sketches, nor any "in progress" pictures of the painting, however that is how I work when doing a cover, as the band does not see it until I am done. Every band I have ever painted a cover for knows that this is how I work, so to circumvent anyone thinking that had anything to do with this situation. Roughly 3 months ago, I found out that Gerardi had been contacted behind my back and hired while I was already working on the cover. Those are the facts, and that is all that needs to be known by anyone not directly involved, ie myself, the band, their manager and their label.

To give perspective, I am DEATHKEY, ran SATANIC SKINHEAD PROPAGANDA, session live with GODLESS NORTH, proudly painted covers for my brothers in DER STURMER and ABSURD, and other things that fall under the un-PC banner and that is not something that would have not been accepted by the mainstream metal world when promoting the new album and it's artwork, at least in the eyes of some. Not all labels of that caliber are as respectful and true to the underground reality as Profound Lore who gladly promote my artwork such as they did for the last VASAELETH album cover. Other "larger" and "mainstream" labels contribute to the fantasy world of pseudo-extremism and package it neatly for the PC metal world and MDF chicken suit fans who want to be "extreme", but not "that extreme".

Obviously the band themselves have a very un-PC past, as with the picture from "From Columbia With Hate" where the band is posing with a Swastika flag, being on No Colours, Dagon being 88MM, old interviews, and on and on, yet a label the size of SOM can do a good job at creating a false reality and keeping underground information, "underground" as to not cause concern from fest organizers etc. Time will tell what the future holds.

brb.... Need to delete my Ace of Base records


Here's my take on the Inquisition thing. I don't take a band member's personal politics into account when listening to metal. Especially extreme metal. There's not a single Inquisition song that has anything to do with national socialism. So if one or both of them is or used to consider themselves nazis, that's shitty, but their music is not promoting that viewpoint at all. Burzum is a perfect example, tons of people enjoy Varg's music and hate his personal politics at the same time. You want some extreme metal that has offensive content in their lyrics? Go get Arghoslent's Incorrigible Bigotry and Impiety's Paramount Evil; but those bands didn't just tour with Behemoth (who has some sketchiness of their own in their past).

My whole Ace of Base comment stems from the fact that they famously have a member of their band that's a nazi, yet I heard one of their songs at the fucking grocery store a couple days ago.

I think Inquisition is making some of the best black metal in the world currently, but this has the potential to end their intentions in the 'mainstream' extreme metal world and at the same time the 'kvlt' black metal fans have begun to shun them for 'leaving the underground'. You think they'll still get that Mayhem tour? I have my doubts...

That was quick. They were supposed to be on Roadburn this year, but they cancelled that show and metal-archives is listing them as 'Split-up' currently.

They were booked as the opening act for Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats in Europe too, but cancelled the whole tour for "personal circumstances".

They've basically said "the album's out, so we're done for now".

Inquisition was supposed to play a show at a small bar here in Seattle about 4-5 years ago but the owner of the bar found out they were on a label called "No Colors Records" and canceled the show, now no one wants to play there anymore due to this.

I think it's all really dumb. I don't listen to bands for lyical content, just music. If it's good music, its good, I'll listen to it. Like hip hop and rap have better lyrical themes? (cheating, drugs, drinking, partying, murder, anti-homosexual, etc)
