Pirokinesis - Fuera De La Realidad

Well well it was around this time last year that I was posting about all the great crazy metal bands Columbia had or has possessed...paast and present. Right in that unhealthy glut of late 80's proto-black evil fuked up thrash is Pirokinesis. Sounding quite a bit like Parabellum and those nutterz from Reencarnacion -a lot of the more avant-garde shenanigans. Outside of Reality indeed.

Cultic Pulp - Crush Conformity

Bass farts. Unearthly grunts. Crusty Funk...Kitchen massacre, Overdose of Love? These guys were nuts. Like most Hungarians I suppose. In a good way of course!

Lemur Voice - Divided

An awesome blast of Dutch prog-mastery that would make prime-era Dream Theater green with envy. Sweet riffs, sweet vocals, sweet keyboards...and Dutch Lemurs!!!
Don't you dare stifle the dutch lemur, they have a voice...and it is John Arch-esque. Full of soo-prizes including a none too subtle or sensical Mike Jackson cover.

SFU Saturdaze

Everyone's still upset over Hanneman's passing, so keep listening to those Slayer albums, I've been especially enjoying the underrated God Hates Us All lately, but I thought I'd bring in a little comic relief to lighten the mood...
Whether Six Feet Under is a joke band or not (I'm pretty sure not) they have made some unintentionally hilarious songs. Sort of it's so bad, it's not really good but....maybe a trainwreck is a more apt analogy. I dunno, the thing about SFU is they are so listenable. Just meat and potatoes death metal, and then Barnes vocals haha! These songs will do nothing if not bring a perverse smile to your face. Especially Ice-T's "rapping" in One Bullet Left. I personally think that song is a masterstroke, just dumb and catchy and wholly unexpected...especially with the pig squeal. Then you have their incredibly retarded Graveyard Classics (of which there are a few I believe), which are either brilliant parody or desecrations depending on who you ask. You may loose a few brain cells listening to this but it's good for what ails ya.

Hell Awaaaaaiiiittttssss

Sad, sad news today that Jeff Hanneman, the best guitar player Slayer has ever had, has passed away. Only 49, way too young.
