  • Hep Kat ya, man in decline pressed their discog on 2xLP last summer, and I snatched that jaunt up right quick. i hadn't listened to them in about 9 years at that point, not since I found their 10" on some random blog when I was an internets n00b. Pretty much my favorite Swedish punk band, and they finally have a new record coming, which I am mad stoked on
    March 2 08:15 AM
  • Hep Kat good to see ya back man. you dig burning kitchen at all?
    March 1 12:21 PM
  • R6Rider Cool. I'll check it =)
    June 8 01:33 AM
  • R6Rider Did you guys ever release anything when you were still in it? I remember you posted a song a few years ago. I really dug it. Would probably dig it even more now.
    June 8 01:12 AM
  • R6Rider Thanks bro! I've been getting into a lot of hardcore type bands lately and bandcamp is usually where I go to listen to 'em.
    June 8 01:01 AM
  • R6Rider can you rec me some dirty, heavy, hardcore bands from Australia?

    August 7 10:52 AM
  • Jacquibim Hey man, I was wondering if you had any good death metal recs from 2013? Also, are there any good blogs you follow to keep up with new releases? Would appreciate hearing back, thanks.
    August 5 04:10 PM
  • alachlahol your grindcore project is hard n raw
    May 15 12:11 PM
  • Sniff U alive?
    April 25 02:39 PM
  • DarkNoctus sure, wasn't that impressed by the first profetus album, second one is much better if you don't look too deeply into it, it's really by the numbers but i think it's great regardless. all the best.
    January 3 09:10 PM
  • Voivod I honestly think you will like this demo - http://www.sputnikmusic.com/news.php?newsid=25401
    January 3 05:46 PM
  • DarkNoctus hey rasp, thought i'd throw a recommendation your way. profetus - to open the passages in dusk. very skepticism-like funeral doom but to me has a much more open, cold atmosphere. you might like it.
    December 25 08:30 PM
  • Aids "Do You Know How To Waltz?" by Low omfg. slowly working through their discography and I serioulsy feel like a kid on Christmas. Last time I felt this excited about listening to new music (new for me, that is) was when I discovered that The Mountain Goats have like hundreds of albums haha. but yeah that song like O_O woah I love it.
    December 23 12:31 AM
  • ihavehadaguystalkingmerecently Hey rasp, I live in Aus and want to start collecting vinyl. I don't know if you can help because I think you live in Western Aus and I live in Melbourne, but do you know any places (preferably cheap) or websites that ship for cheap around the country or anything?
    December 12 12:30 AM
  • GiaNXGX Terranean Wake rules, sup rasp. Noctus review was very good but needs more rasputinarian powder ;]
    November 20 04:10 PM
  • GiaNXGX I can't wait . Dooom was such a masterpiece, everything they have released up to this point is amazing. Are you gonna review it?
    October 27 11:14 PM
  • GiaNXGX Am I the only one exited for new Worship.... Huh rasputin :] ?
    October 25 05:30 PM
  • Aids haha living the dream. are you insanely stressed out right now? I would be. I think i'll be able to handle something like that eventually but with where i'm at right now, i don't think i could pull it off.
    October 7 06:40 PM
  • Aids yeah i really think i'll regret if i don't get into the field. i actually like politics and usually do a pretty good job in debates/discussions about IR issues, I just don't think I could handle the workload. I'm a really lazy student and I leave papers until the last possible minute. I got away with it during my first two years but i think i'd crash and burn at the higher levels. idk we'll see. and yeah we're one in the same. I always meet tonnes of Canadians and Aussies wherever I travel.
    October 5 05:52 PM
  • SeaAnemone yo berkay any chance you could hook me up with a way to get that drowning horse lp?... the more I hear about it the more I need it haha, would be much much appreciated
    October 5 09:50 AM
  • Aids oh wow that's awesome. i flirted with taking polisci in uni and am still considering IR (it's either that or math.......) i had a bit of a quarter-life crisis though and ran away half way through, going back to finish soon. (i'm canadian by the way but po-tay-to/po-tah-to)
    October 3 03:50 AM
  • Aids fair enough. i think i saw you say you were working on your thesis or something? what are you studying?
    October 3 01:30 AM
  • Aids i cant remember if you like them but if you do, have you heard the new GY!BE album yet? what do you think of it?
    October 2 07:14 PM
  • HighandDriving Check my Post punk revival thread.
    September 25 11:37 PM
  • HighandDriving Lol youd my comments on this site of all places. You mad.
    September 25 01:46 PM
  • Curse. I'm about a month late replying, but the new Lord Mantis is immense, if you get the chance check it out
    September 25 01:38 AM
  • Skrapyard I discontinued those, too, so you didn't really miss anything. Didn't want to perpetuate file-sharing anymore.
    September 24 11:21 PM
  • Skrapyard Yeah man, I ran Filth
    September 24 10:38 PM
  • GiaNXGX Hello rasp! How are you? I've been reading a lot of your reviews lately and you're a terrific writer. The Animals review is god-like.
    September 22 09:40 PM
  • Adabelle It's decent, but yeah Blaspherian do it better
    September 18 02:40 PM
  • Adabelle Have you heard Imprecation's latest album?
    September 13 02:41 PM
  • TheSpirit *** keep up the good work
    August 29 10:58 AM
  • TheSpirit Hey man, how are you? I just wanted to apologize actually about my first comments about Grandmother... I was listening to it the other day and I ended up liking it a lot more than I previously did. Anyway as someone with a band I know how annoying it is for someone to make dumb, snarky comments so I just.wanted to.say sorry. Can't wait for more material to.come out, please keep med.
    August 29 10:54 AM
  • Sniff Sure. I hardly drink myself but you can go ahead
    August 27 06:04 AM
  • Curse. Did you ever give the latest Lord Mantis a listen?
    August 24 03:29 AM
  • Sniff Will you show me Australia while I'm over there?
    August 23 06:06 AM
  • combustion07 Alright cool. So far what I'm working with right now is mainly death metal and powerviolence. Some of the death metal is very sludgy though so I think you guys would fit in nicely I'll keep you up to date.
    August 16 11:44 PM
  • LeviofDoom Potsy is thesilentpotato. and music recs, idk, just what you think is really good that would be a natural progression from what I'm into right now.
    August 16 10:42 PM
  • LeviofDoom Hey, "Potsy" told me to come to you for some recs... so rec me some music? For potsy?
    August 16 05:08 PM
  • combustion07 Awesome. I remember hearing the first track you posted in a list awhile back. I've actually got a compilation in the works right now and I might contact you soon if you're interested in throwing a track on it.
    August 16 03:08 AM
  • combustion07 Hey man saw your comment on someones list mentioning your band. What's the name and where can I hear it?
    August 16 02:46 AM
  • Curse. Have you listened to Bell Witch? Their demo is really really good funeral doom

  • Idnuf While I was vacationing in San Francisco I saw this store - twice. Took pics thinking you might get a kick out of it. http://i.imgur.com/UPgcC.jpg http://i.imgur.com/C93lZ.jpg
    July 3 06:14 PM
  • Homeslice Placed up a new band called Monads. Funeral doom in similar form to Mournful Congregation, Loss, Evoken. It is an EP, but possibly some of the best done funeral doom done last year, and that might be an understatement.
    July 2 08:28 PM
  • Tyrael Hehe, I hope you'll be reviewing it cause your God is Good review was ace :]
    June 25 05:56 PM
  • kingsoby1 nice dude, you're getting hella educated. very impressed with zelienople - saw your review on rym
    June 25 11:32 AM
  • Tyrael Hey rasp, have you heard the new Om yet?
    June 25 09:53 AM
  • kingsoby1 right on, hope things are going well. did you graduate? my kid is almost 3, cant believe it.
    June 19 10:22 AM
  • eternium Nice cover, for realz.
    June 16 01:44 AM
  • kingsoby1 haven't seen yr reviews lately bro, going to try harder to follow them!
    June 14 09:43 PM
  • DarkNoctus no that's a fair point, in many ways i just threw a lot of aspects from different things i loved into one so originality definitely isn't a strongpoint as far as that composition goes (though i thought the way it progressed into the almost summoning-like part to the end was a nice twist). i'm hoping that in future compositions more originality shines through, it's kind of a difficult thing to pre-meditate. thanks for taking the time to hear it though, i'll keep working on it.
    June 9 03:42 PM
  • DarkNoctus hi rasp, since i trust your opinion would you perhaps listen to this symphonic doom track i did? it doesn't stay symphonic doom throughout the length but yeah, maybe give it a shot. the drums are currently being redone (they suck) but the rest is a fairly good representative and maybe you could help me in telling me what to go for as far as the drums are concerned, as far as style. thanks! :] http://soundcloud.com/joenoctus/the-wanderer-demo

  • seedofnothing sounds good I'm looking to hear what you guys will do
    May 3 03:05 AM
  • seedofnothing cool man I'm really glad you dug it, how's ur bands music coming along?
    May 1 05:06 PM
  • seedofnothing hey bro I just wrote a new song called "Slavish Doctrines" check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVFyOZaWa10/ it's not the raw bm that we talk about but it's a little different from my older stuff, it has more dm progressive qualities about it, let know what you think sir
    April 25 02:39 AM
  • Hyperion1001 that would be cool, there arent any other rips that i can find (and im usually pretty good at sniffing them out if they do exist). i have infant and the split with natural assembly but the rest i cant seem to dig up.
    April 24 10:46 PM
  • Hyperion1001 any way you could fix the link to cremation lily's sexless merit? its on s4d but as megaupload and the gubment ****ed that up
    April 24 03:54 PM
  • DarkNoctus what do you think of it? i'm kind of surprised it's the same band that brought out black cassette
    April 16 09:13 PM
  • DarkNoctus oh, well then ignore me :]
    April 16 01:17 PM
  • DarkNoctus http://wreckandreference.bandcamp.com/album/no-youth just in case you missed it
    April 16 08:09 AM
  • ITsHxCTOASTER s*** I meant to say album, not CD. I was just going to buy the digital download from bandcamp but yeah Paypal wouldn't come through for me
    March 21 04:22 PM
  • ITsHxCTOASTER Dude I tried to buy the Grandmother CD but paypal didn't accept my American Express gift card and I don't have a credit card :(
    March 21 11:37 AM
  • Kellerdeck Hey man, I notice that you have an interest in Avant Garde music, and I was wondering if you'd be willing to give My album a listen and review or rate it. The album link is here: rest6911.bandcamp.com and the sputnik page for the album is here: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/soundoff.php?albumid=95540Cheers! :D
    March 16 03:45 PM
  • seedofnothing thanks bro I appreciate it, I'll definitely let you know. it's funny because I love writing all forms of music and playing anything. if you have any album recs that you think would match what think I'm capable of, please send them my way. I can really never have enough inspirations[particularly raw bm that you mentioned and whatever else you think I should check out]
    March 15 10:22 PM
  • seedofnothing I really appreciate and value your feedback. You always give me str8 forward thoughts which I always value the most. It's funny you mention trying out raw bm because the title/name "Seed of Nothing" is actually meant to denote my songs will venture in several different areas. with that said I have two doom songs I'm doing, and have already completed one that IS raw bm, it's still in the production phase so it'll be a few weeks but with your encourage I'll work on another raw bm at this point :]
    March 15 02:14 PM
  • seedofnothing Hey what's up man. I just finished a new song! it's called "Fables of Blood"[dm/bm infused with melodies]. If you don't mind checking it out, I'd love to hear what you'd think of it. it's at www.youtube.com/seedofnothing
    March 15 03:58 AM
  • Vesper Haha, thanks, I'm sure I'll enjoy these... Just started reading the one praising Ian Brady as a genius, so f-cked up!
    March 13 05:44 PM
  • Wizard That's really good to hear. I went to check it out the other day and was surprised that the site was empty. Always loved the reviews/ articles on that site. ****ing eh, can't wait to hear some new The Dead!!! Just a question, do you like Slough Feg?
    March 11 08:36 AM
  • Wizard Hey, I just figured out that you weren't writing for DC anymore. In fact, it looks like you pulled out of the webzine altogether?
    March 10 08:12 AM
  • seedofnothing awesome bro definitely keep me posted on anys. I'd love to hear your work. Yeah I wana get into more of a raw black metal sound and have done a few more things in that but haven't really been proud of it enough to post it up but I plan on dedicated more time to making it worthwhile, but that's good invaluable feedback :]
    March 6 09:24 PM
  • seedofnothing thanks bro I really appreciate it. If you don't mind me asking, do you remember which one you liked. Just curious to see what your taste' are like. Also I wanna hear some more of your music too. are you doing any other music besides the one you posted a while back?
    March 6 12:37 PM
  • seedofnothing Right on, well thanks for checking it out and taking some time to listen to it.
    March 6 12:09 PM
  • seedofnothing hey bro I just wrote a new song called "Abandon Life". its at www.youtube.com/seedofnothing... if you have a chance, let me know if you find it enjoyable.
    March 1 05:58 PM
  • Vesper Sweet, thanks, rasp. I've heard a few of these, but plenty to go through for now. You're so dependably m/
    February 20 08:34 PM
  • Adabelle 'Sup. So I like Demilich and I like Blaspherian and I like Adramelech and I like Rippikoulu, now what?
    February 18 06:04 PM
  • Vesper NO MY CRAVING MUST BE SATISFIED NOW (No, that sounds fine, haha. Have fun at the show, man. Who's playing?)
    February 17 11:40 PM
  • Vesper Haha, it's fine. I think the discussion kind of died with everyone walking away with their differences... But, yeah, looking forward to them. (Much faster/higher quality to ask you directly than make a recs list, ha.)
    February 17 11:29 PM
  • Vesper Ugh, you left me to argue with the no-objectivity dudes by myself. To make it up, I'm craving some black/thrash metal, so give me some recs, please.
    February 17 03:33 PM
  • ConsiderPhlebas Been chatting with Vesper some more regarding the whole objectivity thing in that list, would be interested in your thoughts, man. I've not articulated my points as well as I'd like, too rushed right now, but Vesper's put some interesting stuff up.
    February 16 09:34 PM
  • Eclecticist Hey I recently discovered these guys and I thought that you may be interested in reviewing their music. They are really cool osdm, check it out http://churchofdaggers.bandcamp.com/album/symptom
    February 16 11:58 AM
  • Skrapyard I'm with you on that one. Hit me up when you finish recording - I'll be working on putting together a small distro after I put together a few releases.
    February 12 07:17 PM
  • Skrapyard Thanks dude; makes me feel a bit more optimistic.
    February 10 04:47 PM
  • Skrapyard Hey, how have S4D sales been? I'm working on starting up a label and want to get an idea of how many units to press for initial releases... I'm thinking 15-25 at most (for unknown artists), since it seems tough to sell anything in an active and saturated market.
    February 9 01:46 AM
  • Wizard Hhahahahaha I figured it was either private message or private poop and I thought to myself, Berk and Karl don't do the scat anymore?
    February 5 09:23 AM
  • DeafMetal thanks for throwing me up there dude! ;3 thanks to you i know about god destroyer and for that i owe you much
    February 5 02:25 AM
  • DeafMetal hey man check out my blog http://fatherslaybraham.blogspot.com/ let me know what u think
    February 5 12:37 AM
  • Wizard "Also PM your postal address on RYM, I've got some stuff to send you ;)" I assume PM your address means post your address? Check your inbox on RYM.
    February 4 08:09 AM
  • Skrapyard Don't worry about the formatting, I'll sort 'em out. Thanks dude
    January 18 01:49 AM
  • Skrapyard Want to do me a favor and rec me some raw, noisy hardcore/punk? Also, are you on the Pure Stench forums?
    January 17 06:05 PM
  • LordOfAlexandria Hey, is the Slays For Days label pretty much focused on ambient/noise music? Any future releases planned?
    January 7 11:23 PM
  • taylormemer Hey Berk. Hope you have a good festive season. (not sure if you celebrate Christmas but whatever). Thanks for putting up with my pointless conversations late at night and of course the recs. Have a good one mate. Look forward to another year. Jake
    December 25 07:31 AM
  • Deviant. Yeah I figured it wouldn't be a huge deal for you but I saw it on FACT and remembered the news article I made about the OTHER Hopsital label haha
    December 17 12:09 AM

  • Voivod I think this band might be interesting for you: http://www.myspace.com/savanon. Take Care!
    November 30 06:27 PM
  • chambered89 i need some 2011 metal man
    November 30 12:30 AM
  • AfterTheBreakdown Great Reviews Sir!
    November 25 02:59 PM
  • DarkNoctus alright, thanks a lot. yeah 5 minutes after that sample it's suddenly using blastbeats in a black metal context so it changes things up a lot. i'm glad you think the drums are fine, really glad they sound like summoning because it's exactly what i went for. anyway, thanks for the feedback!
    November 23 11:19 PM
  • DarkNoctus yeah it is, the track is really long though, that's an 8 minute sample of a track i want to go on for about 45 minutes (album length). thanks though. i get what you mean with the climax thing, i've been trying to make it so the current one 'hits' harder and has more to it. i'm sure i'll think of something. you don't think the drum machine is too bad?
    November 23 10:55 PM
  • DarkNoctus oh despite our disagreements (and my overreaction) there was something i was meaning to ask you for a while. i've been recording an album lately and i have a sample up and it dabbles in doom and post-rock and black metal later on and i figured with your experience you could give me some valuable feedback regarding just about anything? thanks. if not, that's fine. http://soundcloud.com/joenoctus/sample-formless
    November 23 01:34 PM
  • Oathbreaker That's too bad, I was hoping the rest of the stuff would be on par with Groza.
    November 22 11:53 AM
  • Oathbreaker Don't know what you meant by "that good" but I think the Mgla album is very nice.
    November 22 08:39 AM
  • Xenophanes That's what I'm hoping. It seems like it could be a cool thing to be a part of. Since there are quite a lot of new Contributors, it would be great if you could give advice on how to make it go smoothly.
    November 21 10:04 PM
  • Xenophanes http://www.facebook.com/groups/162548580510089/Here, this may work better, so no one is forcibly friended and whatnot.
    November 21 09:17 PM
  • Xenophanes I've been shoutboxing the Contributors about the User's End of the Year list because the voting is going to start on the 1st. Since you've been doing this a lot longer than I have, I was wondering how we've typically gone about doing it. Deviant. has given me a lot of pointers, and is the person we are going to be contacting and getting assistance from. He suggested a facebook thread or group, but I guess I ask the veterans first because I don't want to be an asshole and step on anyone's toes
    November 21 08:12 PM
  • Iluvatar i dont even know how i got so many forum posts probably circle jerking in the original sputnik comm thread. oh those days..
    November 18 02:36 AM
  • Iluvatar **** how did you get more comments than me did i really stop using the site that much
    November 18 02:29 AM
  • DeafMetal i was afraid of that oh well. meh at least i can still blast the shiit out of gravemouth
    November 18 02:19 AM
  • DeafMetal have you ever come across a s/t demo released by a band called beyond? excavation from holland apparently changed their name to beyond in 1995
    November 17 11:41 PM
  • YetAnotherBrick Ah, alright. Well, the song rules. It still has that anguished, pissed off feeling a song that's about what I asked would probably have anyway, so thanks. haha
    November 16 11:58 AM
  • BallsToTheWall Forgot to mention on your shoegaze list, I think, but this Finnish band called Regina put out a pretty nifty record this year called Soita Mulle.
    November 16 09:29 AM
  • YetAnotherBrick Hey, do you know where I could get the lyrics for that Grinning Death's Head song you rec'd me?
    November 15 07:17 PM
  • wabbit have you heard future islands new album from this year? I think you'd adore it
    November 13 10:46 PM
  • Gyromania Fair enough, the build is admittedly dull but the payoff is great. if you liked that I'd recommend maybe taking a listen to that album. Just a fair warning in case you do: the first and last songs are most likely going to bore you.
    November 7 03:56 AM
  • Gyromania http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wmxh9e8EcE The latter half of this is fantastic.
    November 7 03:45 AM
  • TheSpirit http://www.multiupload.com/L8KLQM7L8T here's a link to that blouse album, i finally found one. also what are your thoughts on the new mournful congregation? (if you've listened to it yet)

    November 2 11:28 AM
  • AngelofDeath Good deal. Anything from the distro you'd specifically recommend?

  • AngelofDeath Really liked your write-up on Aidan Baker. Great stuff. Any copies of S4D2 left? Been meaning to ask for a while now.

  • Crysis ah damn, too bad. I've heard the tape sounds a lot better than the CD-R, so hopefully someone leaks it soon.
    October 13 09:38 PM
  • Crysis Any chance you could rip the Ruin Lust tape and put in on S4D?
    October 12 01:34 PM
  • Vesper Hey, I could still be an adolescent male and have a bf... Nah, it's kind of common knowledge now that I'm Sputnik's resident Asian woman - get with the times, rasp! Well, the postal service outdid me, haha, but should tune in now if you want to hear some new BTC.
    October 11 11:07 PM
  • Vesper Rasp, if your Ruin Lust tape still hasn't arrived, my bf's airing it live on his radio show at 11 PM, link and details: http://sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=83492 Should tune in, if you're impatient. :)
    October 11 10:25 PM
  • AngelofDeath Awesome. Definitely looking forward to that. Dude is a machine. Hard to think of any other artists putting out listen-worthy material at a pace like his. Can't say I'm entirely versed in modern classical, but I guess I am pretty familiar with the key players and those guys are certainly amongst top tier. Should be a great backdrop for your writing, anyway.

  • AngelofDeath Do eet. Very talented young pianist/composer, much like Olafur Arnalds. This newest album has a more distinct ambiance to it due to him mic'ing his piano to pick up all the mechanical workings of his piano as well as recording through a tape recorder.
    October 10 01:23 PM
  • AngelofDeath Yeah, I think that and the new Nils Frahm are going to get a lot of rotation from me in the coming weeks. Finding both to be pretty remarkable albums even in what little time I've spent with them.
    October 10 01:14 PM
  • AngelofDeath New Hecker is streaming. Gewd stuff. http://audiopleasures.blogspot.com/2011/10/tim-hecker-dropped-pianos-full-stream.html
    October 10 11:33 AM
  • Hyperion1001 Here's another album to add to your Finnish dm list. Its much more Swedish sounding than finnish but it is from finland, if you do plan on keeping that list as complete as possible. You probably would have found it sooner or later but regardless. http://rateyourmusic.com/release/ep/cryptborn/in_the_grasp_of_the_starving_dead/

  • pillowswantyoursoul Sorry for the extremely late reply brah. Need some darkish avant garde.
    September 20 03:58 AM
  • R6Rider Cool. Keep me posted.
    September 15 09:09 AM
  • R6Rider Good job on the Slays For Days mag Rasp. I will be waiting for issue #2 =)
    September 14 12:06 AM
  • wabbit check through your list check out the new kurt vile. I think you'd like it...also write a review for new brigade cause no one else is.
    September 7 11:37 PM
  • Hyperion1001 Ofc i've got Demilich, Portal, and Runemagick, and The Chasm, Depravity, and Gorement all rule (i'm waiting on my vinyl from necroharmonic of Darkness of the Dead to get here) but thanks for the others.
    September 7 12:06 AM
  • Hyperion1001 Timeghoul's Panaramic Twilight rules, but there has to be something else out there that does that whole avant-garde occult dm that doesn't completely blow. Any suggestions?
    September 6 10:02 PM
  • pillowswantyoursoul Could you give me some more recs brah if that's alright
    September 5 03:57 AM
  • FatChickIrl hi cutie
    August 30 04:54 AM
  • fromtheinside Really digging in the woods... What else would you rec?
    August 30 02:00 AM
  • AngelofDeath I wasn't sure if they were going to take the vein of El Mundo further or get back to the sound of Paso Inferior or early EP works, but needless to say, I was surprised in all the right ways. Like I posted earlier in the review thread, I really wouldn't be surprised if they got back to doing more stuff in the vein of Rato Triste and Sus Futuros in the near future.
    August 30 12:19 AM
  • AngelofDeath Seems like I've gotten too many hopes up after my hyperbolic praise, but I haven't heard a record this immediately gratifying in a long, long time. Their other records took varying amounts of time for me to appreciate, but this floored me right away. And I think it may also be just what I wanted to hear at this point in time.
    August 26 11:15 PM
  • AngelofDeath Yeah, I like it a lot. A lot a lot. May work on a review over the weekend if I get some time.
    August 25 11:01 PM
  • wabbit hey man. Anything from 2011 you think I would like that I wouldn't have heard of?
    August 25 10:42 PM
  • AngelofDeath Lol. Maybe just be a little late to the party on one of the greatest albums of the year. No biggie.
    August 25 10:42 PM
  • AngelofDeath New Corrupted finally leaked. Here's a link if you don't already have one:http://www.mediafire.com/?d5seedybgb10ngc
    August 25 12:43 PM
  • Wizard Damn so you like owe me 5 freebies? hahahahaha
    August 18 09:02 PM
  • Wizard Damn you're hot, can I get an autograph and a BJ?
    August 18 08:01 AM
  • AngelofDeath Good deal. Looking forward to it. Gonna spread the word 'round my neck of the woods. Imagine at least a few of my friends would be interested in this sort of thing.
    August 15 10:25 PM
  • AngelofDeath The zine got here today in the mail (along with my Ash Borer record). s*** rules. Keep me posted on issue #2.
    August 15 07:34 PM
  • Idnuf http://diabolicalconquest.com/DC staff/berkaydcpic.jpg Did you buy that shirt online or was it from a show? I'd love to get one like it but it's impossible to find anything for Worship because all I get is religious stuff.
    August 9 11:12 AM
  • R6Rider I need ordering info rasp. capplayer@yahoo.com
    July 28 12:09 PM
  • BallsToTheWall Alright cool...on another note Cremation Lily is really ****ing cool. Rarely ever find any good modern P.E.
    July 26 12:10 PM
  • pillowswantyoursoul Thanks alot for the recs breh
    July 26 03:41 AM
  • BallsToTheWall Whats going on with diabolical conquest? Temporary hiatus?
    July 25 02:56 PM
  • HSThomas I've heard a couple on that list but a lot of it's completely new to me. Many thanks dude.
    July 8 09:09 AM
  • HSThomas Hey rasputin do you have any crust/d-beat recs?
    July 7 10:37 AM
  • AngelofDeath Great, I'll have to check that out then. Danke.
    July 6 11:36 PM
  • AngelofDeath Yeah, I definitely agree with those. Still really fond of the new Peste Noire as well. I believe there's supposed to be a few Panopticon splits this year, so there's always that.
    July 6 10:42 PM
  • AngelofDeath I like it more than the debut, but yeah, you might not dig it if you don't care much for that one. Though, I could just enjoy it because of the slew of sub-par black metal released this year.
    July 5 10:49 PM
  • AngelofDeath You got the new Arizmenda yet?
    July 5 10:35 PM
  • alachlahol you want them to slow down??? theyre a sludge band hahahahahahahahahahhahahahha
    June 15 08:46 AM
  • NocteDominum Thank you very much, needed that.
    June 15 07:34 AM
  • NocteDominum Hey man, you wouldn't mind critiquing my Black Dahlia review for me? You can be as brutally blunt as you can possibly be. I'm looking for hugely constructive feedback.
    June 15 02:21 AM
  • alachlahol have you checked out any of the three new Thou EPs that are dropping over the next month or two? available for download at their site http://noladiy.org/thoupast.html
    June 8 08:35 AM
  • DeafMetal ah cool man, just curious... i'd love to see a new album from them, i feel like voices was maybe their strongest album yet so if they stay in the right direction they're in good shape
    June 8 05:47 AM
  • DeafMetal what have you heard in the way of a new rwake album if anything?
    June 2 09:52 PM
  • coneren but....oh my god what have you done
    June 2 03:08 PM
  • coneren im fuuckig loaded and you rock for thos death metal lists
    June 2 05:03 AM
  • coneren remember when i watched you put on a record....oh my god that was the hardest ive ever been
    June 2 04:19 AM
  • AngelofDeath I have that and the new Petrychor downloaded but haven't been able to find the time to sit down and listen to either. So busy...
    May 28 07:58 PM
  • AngelofDeath Despond leaked if you don't have it already. http://www.filesonic.com/file/1081320401
    May 28 12:56 AM
  • AngelofDeath Yeah, I agree 100%. This one in particular happens to be pretty damn far from La Sanie lol. Maybe people will eventually pull their heads out of their asses and come to grips with how great and innovative the rest of his work is.
    May 23 12:42 PM
  • AngelofDeath It'll definitely have a spot somewhere in mine. I could see some people being put off by bits of it, but I don't think those that appreciate the previous three albums will be too deterred.
    May 22 11:01 PM
  • AngelofDeath No problem. This might actually be Famine's strangest release yet, but I've found it really enjoyable after a few listens.
    May 22 10:55 PM
  • AngelofDeath I assume you've got the new PN already. Really digging it.
