  • Yeah....this really isn`t the page for Black Metal hipsters....
  • See people hating on new albyum for its "simplistic songwriting and lyrics", but that's actually what makes this album good imo. It's actually quite a catchy and fun record, and the songs stick in the mind more so than songs on previous albums
  • After over a decade in the movement...i finally decided it's time to quit. Despite the fact that half of the songs in the genre are about violence/slaughters, satanism, misanthrophy and inhumanity you realize it's addressed to a merry group of beat-up guys (wussies) and chicks with emotional issues. And I never really cared for any metal-related ideology I just treated this as an "amusing over-distorted brutal music with lyrics you shouldn't really treat too serious" :-) Really there is a time in life where you are WAY TOO OLD for wearing a metal-head uniform, and it's WAY BETTER to blend with "random pedestrians" than to be part of ATTACK OF THE CLONES on a Metal-gig. There is really no point to suck-up and be identified with a bunch of TOMBSTONE HIPPIES and PILL-EATING MENTAL CHICKS WEARING LATEX OR LEATHER. To a regular 'every-day, normal guy' there's no bigger difference if have you long hair or mohawk, or is it a MayheM or The Exploited t-shirt.
  • Part2: And I catch their point. After some time in this, when I saw another metalhead I actually labeled him a "jack-ass" and made fun of him, rather then considering him a worthy person to become buddies and drinking companions. It's a bold statement but the metal genre started.. and ended as well - with BLACK SABBATH. What's the point of "dressing-up" if you're not an artist performing on-stage? And there's actually a small group of METAL-bands, with lyrics that depict life-issues and point out social problems, that are actually worth anything (such as thrash bands like Megadeth, Voivod or Xentrix) but it's still ThRASH anyway. "Procreating Satan" a title like that..who's attention it would draw? Only a total retard. Despite being an atheist i prefer Catholics over long-haired lefties with no moral values. You guys really think you are scary, hardcore SATANIC bad-asses but you're actually being mocked and laughed-at by the society in a similar way to the LGBT communities
  • RIP Frank, such a shame not even he could save that horrid new album.
  • This band ....... they are gays?
  • Hat>All
  • Gaahl, Pest and Hat are all great imo. But Hat is more unique and recordes their best album.
