INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

NECROBLOOD “Collapse of the Human Race” black/death metal album review and bandcamp stream

Parisian old-school metal band NECROBLOOD have penetrated violently my musical microcosm back in 2011. They have done so with the best credentials that an underground metal band could possibly have according to my book: a debut self-titled 7”EP released by Read more

NUCLEAR WINTER “Abomination Virginborn” CD review

Posted on by panos.agoros in Art, Death Metal, Music | Leave a comment

I don’t recall exactly how many times I’ve written about this demo… Not enough! For those who’ve been on a coma for the last 13 years, “Abomination Virginborn”  is the most important Greek demo of the 00’s. It also is the recording who put Greek death metal in the map of the international underground, paving the way for the DEAD CONGREGATION phenomenon.

The horror: PORTAL -CURTAIN-

Posted on by panos.agoros in Art, Death Metal, Music | Leave a comment

Hailing from Australia, PORTAL are on the edge of the contemporary extreme music scene. Their unorthodox, chaotic death metal will swallow and deconstruct you. From the lyrics written in their own cryptic language, to the terrifying, paradoxal artwork, the music is endorsed and supported by some of the darkest and most inspiring aesthetics.

The video-clip for “Curtain”, out of their 2013’s offering for Profound Lore Records “Vexovoid”, presents the realm of their art under a concrete, horrific angle.

Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman – Good Omens

Posted on by Vassago in Art | Leave a comment

I had heard a lot about Terry Pratchet in the past, but never had the chance to read one of his books. What a shame! I’ve been missing out on one of the most interesting, and amusing authors of our time; and Igood-omens-1 know how heavy  this statement is. It is not the rave reviews this book received, nor the fact that many of my friends had already read it, that finally made me read it. Its subject originally intrigued me: Apocalypse, Armageddon, angels, demons, the Antichrist… All in today’s modern England . What a nice concept! The story begins with one of the main characters, the demon Crawley (Yes, Crawley , I found it funny too! His initials are A.J. by the way 😉 ), a totally humanised ethereal being (after having stayed in Earth for countless years, passing off as a human, albeit a weird one), after having sabotaged half of England, forcing many virtuous English people towards the ways of down-under, receiving the Antichrist, as a baby, by two of his superior demons.

Zdzisław Beksiński.24Zdzislaw Beksinski, a leading Polish surrealist painter known for his images of death, was found stabbed to death at his Warsaw home on Tuesday, police said. Beksinski, 75, was considered one of ‘s leading contemporary artists. He emerged on the Polish art scene in the 1950s and was best known for his abstract renditions of skeletons, monster-like creatures and other apocalyptic images evoking death and decay.

Relatives found Beksinski’s body overnight, and “everything indicates it was murder,” police spokeswoman Zuzanna Talar said. He suffered multiple stab wounds, and police said there were no signs of forced entry or robbery. Three days later, police charged two teenagers with the slaying. One suspect, the son of Beksinski’s friend and aide, confessed to killing the painter.
