New Leviathan Track
2011-10-04 by Angel STAFF | 65 Comments

The closing track of Leviathan's forthcoming album, True Traitor, True Whore, has
been made available for streaming. The track is titled "Blood Red and True" and can be heard
via Pitchfork's website.

http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/12533-blood-red-and-true/

A rare interview with the project's sole member, Jef Whitehead, was also posted to Pitchfork
last month giving the black metal artist a chance to talk about his latest album and clear
the air about the sexual assault charges brought against him earlier this year.

True Traitor, True Whore will be released November 8th via Profound Lore.

Song is pretty great, especially the psychedelic parts, but from interview sounds like a major tool, who 95% probably committed the act.

From what I've read, his accuser seems to cry wolf a lot on guys for sexual abuse/assault. Pretty sure the case is being or has been dropped since there isn't any real evidence to go on, as well as the plantiff lacking credibility.

Pretty sure the only way to find truth behind this is to examine the lady's netherparts. Because let's face it,a tattoo gun would do some serious damage that in all likelihood would take a long time to recover from.

I expected something a little more intelligent. He writes great music (still not too sure about this album though) but that just caught me off guard.

The guy's thought patterns seem so disjointed. I couldn't follow much of what he was even talking about lol.

It is the internet and that's why I question whether he took the interview seriously or not. I mean, if I was being interviewed by Pitchfork, I would probably do some goofball thing to make them feel like they had just interviewed the greatest kvlt figure ever hahahahahaha.

guy is scum

Why, he might be innocent. Who really cares if he wrote an album concerning his absolute resentment towards woman hahahaha. Some days, I could write an album like that as well hahahaha.

Don't care about the sexual assault, the interview, or the thread it spawned. I saw the headline and thought a deep track from Mastodon's 2nd album recording sessions had been uncovered...

Varg killed Euronymous and is a racist.

Faust killed a gay man just because.

Euronymous took pictures of his friend that committed suicide before calling the police and quite possibly ate his brains while also handing out necklaces from the fragments of the skull (the latter are rumors though).

Graveland, Nokturnal Mortum, amongst other black metal bands, are also racist.

Darkthrone put "Norsk Arisk Black Metal" on the back of Transilvanian Hunger (though they later dispelled being Nazis or racists).

...and, please, look into even more fucked up ideological beliefs of black metal artists and their murderous history. Wrest assaulted/tortured his girlfriend, whatever. Regardless of whether he is innocent or not, I still like his music just the same as I like Burzum's music regardless of what the artist stands for or has done.

"True Traitor, True Whore" actually sounds like a Cradle of Filth EP, lol.
