SKITLIV was formed in Norway in 2005 by Maniac, former vocalist of Mayhem, primarily as a means for him to comment on the inevitable downfall of humanity - but also because after leaving Mayhem, he was now ready to exorcise his own personal demons.

SKITLIV plays what can best be described as “black metal with fucked up patterns of sound and vision”. Lets put it this way, if you are approaching this band with any preconceptions based on what you know of Maniac’s previous work, you had better leave those preconceptions behind.

With the addition of Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth on guitars Maniac is able to take the band a step further away from Black Metal towards a more doom/noise/ambient inspired sound.

“vulture face kain. nothing. everything. this is day. oblivious. another deathday. stipulating miscalculations and imminent pain vs horrors daily angerangst. something died. we need to sweeten this deal. uncharted. and wishing well. impaired rupture. me and you; we are sinners of forgiveness. on the verge of coherency losing its battle. unsettlement. captured in rupture. it is signed and carried out. twitching. all without destiny, it is this. still breathing gloom. the murder of the self. there is no better about it.”

    Too bad they took Risen's advice and quit arguing. I found this whole discussing very amusing.

    I like how that's the same think you posted on God Seed and Shining's pages, with the names changed, Glamaster. If you don't like it, don't listen to it.

    "There is no ‘uproar’. You slammed some of the music I like, I did the same." <---- Bitch, please. You're an uptight lesbian feminazi and your testosterone level shot through the roof after I made you prove my suspicions about your behavior was right, and that's why you're all over the place menstruating about me and my supposed hipsterness. You got docked badly and put in your place by an XY. Admit defeat and apologize and I might just ease up and let you off the hook.

    "Also, posting on a person's shoutbox and then blocking them? Dude, that's so not cool. " <--- Non-friends are blocked from posting by default. Send me a friend request and we'll be BFF. <3 <3 <3 <3

    <-----This is actually the first - and I hope the last - time I have the 'pleasure' to talk to you. Also, anyone can scroll down and see my post is preceding yours; so how am I following you? <---- Actually it is, but you were spamming a link asking people to defend your comments on DSBM which I thought was real cheesy so I let you know about it. Flash forward a few weeks and here you are with your twat in an uproar about my charts. That ain't coincidence, honey. <3

    Oh, and by the way. Quit following me around Just because I made fun of your cheesy "support DSBM" page doesn't mean you need to get your tampons in a twist and attack me where ever you see me.

    "v So this is the distinctly ironic approach hipsters employ to cover their lack of a warranted opinion. I find it charming I must confess. " <---- I listen to all kinds of music. I don't limit myself to a single genre in order to adhere to some fake-y code of conduct like a complete mendicant as you do, apparently. Besides, "hipster" is a terribly mindless go-to word, and you're the kind uptight person who just loves to use it.
