If you like complex music structure/time signatures, technical guitar parts and high production quality, this is definitely not for you. Sargeist are a lo-fi metal band with obvious influences from the likes of Darkthrone. Satanic Black Devotion was Sargeists first studio album, they have since recorded 2 more full lengths and a few EPs (I recommend getting The Dark Embrace EP).

1. If you have an ugly hair-cut, get a better one.

2. If you have glasses, get rid of them.

3. If you have braces, get rid of them.

4. If you have bad skin, fix it.

5. If you have a personality, lose it.

6. If you have brains, stop being smart.

Follow this guide, and you will be the most popular, attractive and just all around awesome girl there is… According to almost every hollywood ‘transformation’ movie, that is.

I really don’t think it’s as easy it seems.

Step one, for example; If you’re getting a shit hair-cut, it’s obviously not on purpose. You’re not trying to make yourself look shit. It’s just how it is. Getting rid of glasses isn’t that easy either. Sure, you can get contacts but they cost a fortune and to some, are impractical.

I also don’t know why ‘geek’ girls in movies always wear the biggest rimmed glasses they can find. Wearing glasses can be found attractive by a lot of people. Just get a nice pair of Versace frames or something and you’re set. Not only have you kept your glasses, but also look good.

I particularly like the third step. When a girl in the movie has braces and she just gets rid of them because she wants to look better. No one has braces as a fashion statement. It’s not something you can just ‘get rid of’.

Another thing I like is the transformation from acne-ridden skin to absolutely flawless skin. It’s all just so simple in the movies, isn’t it.

Well, that’s about all I had to share.

Enjoy listening to the awesome music suggestions I gave.

LAAAAAAAAG

December 30, 2010

I’ve been playing Call of Duty: Black Ops a lot recently and there has been one thing that’s been pissing me off immensely. It’s the fucking lag!

I don’t think i’ve been in a game where i’ve gotten better than two bars, and thats out of 5.

To illustrate why this may be frustrating, I have drawn a lovely picture.

Now, this first picture is what I see:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Awesome, right? There’s no way that won’t be a headshot so i empty a clip into that guys face however, I end up dying. I scream and shout, yelling “WHYYYYY GOD!! WHYYY” and then I watch the killcam.

Here’s what the above looks like to everyone else:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not only do i look like a complete noob that’s shooting everywhere for no reason, but i also get killed.

For the first few deaths, maybe even rounds, it’s bearable but when you’re on the top of the leaderboard and you just need a couple more kills to win the round but you just can’t because of the bullet lag, it’s pretty fucking annoying.

As promised: another week, another album.
Still no motivation to do any proper posts so this is all you get.

This week, an album from Australian formed, London based ‘Darkwave’ group ‘Dead Can Dance’.

I only really got this album for the one song, The Host of Seraphim, but after listening to the rest of it, I liked it enough to keep it all.

Tom Waits – Bone Machine

December 21, 2010

There have been a lack of posts recently as I find no motivation to write anything worth sharing. To make up for the lack of posts, I will instead put up music at least once a week.

Today, Tom Waits’ ‘Bone Machine’. Tom Waits is very unique and quite a peculiar artist to be honest. You will either love him, hate him or he will grow on you very quickly.

This album; Bone Machine, consists of his more ‘strange’ music. I absolutely love it. If you’re new to Tom Waits and need a starting point, my favourites on this album are: Black Wings, In The Colosseum, Murder in the Red Barn and Earth Died Screaming.

Band: Tom Waits

Burzum – Filosofem

December 13, 2010

If you like Black Metal in any of it’s forms, this album is an absolute must. Filosofem is probably, no definitely, my favourite Burzum album. Lo-fi recordings, harsh vocals and a very atmospheric album. Just get it. Don’t even think about it.

Freedom of Religion

December 13, 2010

In Australia, the constitution states that:

The Commonwealth of Australia shall not make any law establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the Commonwealth.”

However, freedom of religion should delve deeper than the governmental body and should affect all citizens of Australia (and any other country practicing freedom of religion).

Freedom of religion should give, not only religious people, but non-religious people the right to live their lives as they please.

Religion should not be forced upon anyone, whether the force is subtle or not. Whether it be Jehovah’s witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, Jews or Atheists, their views should be theirs, and theirs alone. I have no problem withyo any religion and anyone that follows a religion. I simply don’t want to hear about it.

If you knock on my door at 9 in the morning to talk to me about god and Jesus, I will say “Fuck god and fuck Jesus”, if you tell me Allah is the one true god and Mohammad, his messenger, I will say “Fuck Allah and fuck Mohammad”, If you find it disrespectful, understand that I find it disrespectful for you to go around spreading your religion.

A personal belief is personal, just like an opinion. You don’t knock on peoples doors telling them and trying to convince them that Oranges are better than Apples. Some people think so, some don’t and most just don’t give a fuck.

For you religious people that are raging at the moment, let me put it this way.

What do you think god would rather have:

  • A bunch of morons that don’t understand the religion worshipping him like the blind sheep that they are or,
  • Living their lives as honestly and best as they can.

There is no point in arguing who is the real god and which religion is true. There will never be an agreement.

In the song ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon, he speaks of a world without religion and how blissful it would be. I think that it’s wrong to say that if you eradicate religion, there will be peace. If however, all religions didn’t care about each other, minded their own business and respected the customs and traditions of every other religion, then and only then would we have true peace.

Woods of Ypres are a band I recently discovered. A fantastic black/doom metal with a brilliant mix of acoustic, clean songs and riffs with fast paced black metal-ness.

Music

November 2, 2010

Deathcore, Metalcore, most Grindcore and basically every other core you can think of are all essentially the same. Teenage faggots in tight jeans that weren’t cool enough, or skilled enough to play real metal so they play their pussy music.

All of these core bands are trying to the same thing and that’s to be ‘heavier’ or more ‘brutal’ than the last band. These faggots don’t understand that real music isn’t just a blast beat and some shitty harmonised sweep with godawful grunts and annoying as shit ‘screams’. Real music should not only be heard, but felt too.

Core music, from what i’ve heard, is completely emotionless, robotic and monotonous. Like I said earlier, all it is, is a blast beat with some shitty harmonised guitar riff that people may deem ‘technical’ and some shitty vocals.

Guitar wanking over a blast beat can only get you so far in music.
Sadly, that satisfies a large amount of people.

The thing that pisses me off so much about core music is that it’s fake.
Fake and shallow, like the common whores you see walking around the city.
Sure, some look good but that’s all they’ve got, looks. There is nothing more to them.

Any idiot can yell about how angry they are and how everything should die, but what use is it if they don’t really feel that way. What’s the point of making music that you don’t believe in.

Some may argue that music is just entertainment, but they would be wrong. It’s not just entertainment. It’s an art. Imagine if Munch painted The Scream in a more extreme style of cubism because he wanted to be more obscure than Picasso. Imagine if he painted it as a detailed portrait because that’s what Da Vinci did, and had great success with. And look at Picasso, his art is obscure and sure, some people say it looks like shit but the fact is, it’s different and he can truly call it his own.

Cubism also reflects well on music quality.
Picasso moved completely away from the regular portrait style paintings and went on a more peculiar path where he purposely obscured his art. He showed how in obscurity, there can be a masterpiece.

I would much rather listen to the low-fi, fuzziness of Xasthur than some bullshit $2000 an hour recording studio core song.
Xasthur has more genuine hate than every core band put together.

Here is a lyrical extract from two different songs:


Prison of Mirrors – Xasthur


The prison of mirrors… we can’t see, 
Yet trapped we are… by its reflection, 
It sees all fear and watches our downfall, 
It will rip all lies and pride from the soul. 


Unbreakable – Veil Of Maya


I hear them calling,
the damned are calling
from this hell on Earth.


Their voices flooding my ears,
I hear them calling,
their voices flooding my ears
from this hell on Earth.


Lyrically, they are quite similar. Nothing special in either song. 
And now listen to each of them.

If you think Unbreakable is a great song, get the fuck off my blog and never return.

The Police

October 22, 2010

I’m surprised I haven’t talked about them yet.
I fucking hate police.
Not only do they not “make the laws” but they don’t enforce them either.
I read in the paper that the police want to go on strike because they aren’t paid enough. I say let them.
We would be better off without those fucking pigs.
All they do is catch kids skating in public and give drivers speeding tickets.
I’ve already ranted about how speed cameras don’t do anything but annoy the living shit out of drivers, but yeah. This is about cops.
Now back to this story of mine.
So, I had to skate to work because I was catching the bus and god knows I can’t walk.
Anyway, this is after work. I just finished working and i’m throwing a trolly full of rubbish away in the compacter.
I make my way back up to my car and I notice a police car driving along the crossing. The car slows down so I walk behind it so i can cross the road, right? Yeah, well this cop rolls down his window and gives me this dickhead, cocky “Hey” so i respond with a nod, “Where ya off to?” says the cop, “My car”, “Huh?”, “My car”, “Huh?” “My car” I’m now getting agitated. “Your car?”, “Yeah..”, “What’ you been doin’?”, “Working…”, “Righteo.” Cop rolls his window up and drives off.

Why does this anger me?
Because of the tone of arrogance and interrogation that he had in his voice. It also angers me because if i looked more like a faggot, he wouldn’t have questioned me. But no, because i wore all black and had a skateboard, I’m automatically a suspected criminal. Discrimination.
Ain’t it a bitch.

While these assholes are interrogating me, there’s probably some crack whore selling her pussy for a can of beans around the corner and these cops won’t do a thing to change that. Know why? Because they’re too busy asking some skater kid what he’s been doing.

You know what else irritates me?
People that swear too much.
I swear excessively, but there are people that just swear too much.
Example of what i mean: “Ah fuck, so ya got any fuckin’ plans for the weekend? Gonna get fuckin’ smashed like a crazy cunt or what?”
That kind of talk is annoying as all fuck.
Swearing doesn’t make you sound tough or cool at all. It’s just vulgar expressions.
