Every now and then we come across something that is just a bit different.
Relapse Records is celebrating their 25th anniversary and in doing so they are giving us over 180 (!) songs spanning the label’s entire history, free of charge (or pay what you can, and please do). This sampler includes one track from almost every band that has released their work on Relapse since 1990.
Happy Anniversary Relapse Records! Let’s headbang!
An additional in-depth feature on 25 of their biggest releases can be read here.
New videos from Carach Angren, Psycroptic, Exist Immortal, Red Seas Fire, Lay Siege.
Carach Angren – Two Flies Flew Into A Black Sugar Cobweb (symphonic black metal)
From the upcoming album ‘This Is No Fairytale’, out on February 23rd:
Thrashy and Heavy Shreds
*Sci-fi thrashers Vektor have been writing on a new album for quite some time now. There’s no hint of a release date, they are still finishing up everything and we can only hope for another exhilarating Vektor space odyssey soon. In the meantime, here’s from previous masterpiece “Outer Isolation”
*Angelus Apatrida is the name of an excellent thrash act from Spain, giving us their fifth riffage opus “Hidden Evolution” on January 19th.
The photograph on the left is there to let you know that this set of songs can’t possibly offend anyone because I don’t think they’re at all amusing. The only reason I posted them was to annoy myself. I get these masochistic impulses every now and then. Right now it’s more now than then because it wasn’t funny then, and now it isn’t funny either.
Oh, and one more thing: Metal never takes the piss out of anything. It is deadly serious about its commitment to blossoms and sunshine and happy picnics with “Kumbaya” floating in the background.
Having unset the mood, let’s unset it again with my favourite Christmas song that is not metal in any possible way and very few impossible ways.
To continue with the proceedings we have something special for the guy who never laughs about anything except making you miserable. He’s very much like every politician you can think of. I suspect he actually is all of them in a mash-up, but not as self-centred.
How could I, a mammal, not end this sermon on a mammalian note? This video is just sick. Literally. I refuse to confess that I just about hosed myself at this one. That would be admitting that I am coarse and vulgar.
