Yeah, underground music scenes and subgenres sure are embarrassing when you take an objective glance at them.

It doesn't require even objectivity, or "underground scene". It may be merely one step away from what is just happening. Suddenly that whore twerking on TV or DJ waving his hand in front of 10000 people makes zero sense. While every part of culture in front of you tries to convince that is what is interesting now. In comparison, few patches in leather jacket is barely even uniform behavior.

Yeah of course, it's easy to abstract any cultural phenomenon by even just a ball hair or two and correctly identify it as weird.  Just like saying a word over and over again makes it sound strange and meaningless (because it is), deciding to think in any way critically about forms of culture that are designed to utterly skirt that kind of thing will quickly reveal some odd realities.  But what the 10,000 people has working in its favour is the 10,000 people.  Yes, the human race is massive but by anyone's estimation that is still an enormous gathering of humans in one place, each of them corroborating the emperor's nude twerk and set of Dre Beats headphones.  It's as surface level an observation as you could ever hope to make about anything you care to name regarding psychology of popular culture and large groups of people.

Which is why it's especially funny in the case of the 150 or so guys gathered under an umbrella of culture which purports to understand all of the above and reject it from its art, all wearing the same shirts, patches and accoutrements and probably all having bought them from the same place, probably able to remembering the thread they first found out about it in.  Noise, PE, Black Metal, Punk...whatever you want its got a version of it.  Harmless tribalism if you want to take another step back...but the funny part is we all say our shit is different to the other guys doing it.  Just because the low hanging fruit of the mainstream or even the slightly more popular subculture above yours will always be there doesn't mean the irony of such a state of affairs is unworthy of mention.

Last time he came by the store he was on a Ducati crotch rocket.  The bike can go upwards of 200 mph.

Haha, that's what it was. I just remember seeing a pic of him with it at a scooter/etc repair shop an acquaintance worked at.

i think the only Ducati you can get that gets anywhere remotely near 200 is the RR that costs 37k+   The must be selling some serious merch.


As NWN has been mentioned a few times im sure people have been seeing the hilarious Judas iscariot/NWN/Blake judd cringe fest unfolding..... Cant help but think Yosuke dropped a major bollock on this one.

It's been like watching a car crash the last few weeks. Especially with DTB posting that Akhenaten just got in touch with Red Stream \ Elegy to say that he didn't know anything about these "official reissues". Basically complete bootlegs at this point.

The bike was serious.  They don't live off just their merch.

I listened to Sons of Northern Darkness the other day and found it surprisingly decent.  Which is probably why I found myself going down 90's memory lane the past few days:

Enslaved - Eld 1997
Enslaved - Frost 1994 - the last time I listened to this, I wasn't feeling it at all, which was weird because it was a favorite back when, but this time was so sublime that I have to wonder what I was thinking before - this is one of those albums that got the cover art perfect (LP); not that it is a favorite album cover or anything like that, but they nailed the photo, color palette, layout, etc to a point to make it noteworthy - Trym's drumming style and ideas are great, but man is he ever a messy drummer.
Immortal - Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism 1992 - I wish more drumming was like this (also Ancient's "Trumps of an Archangel" or Discharge "Ain't No Feeble Bastard" and "A Look at Tomorrow"; simple 8th note hi-hat rock groove).
Darkthrone - Panzerfaust 1994

*because I can't count

I quite like the messiness of the drumming on some of those earlier BM releases. There's something frantic about it. Immortal's "Battles in the North" is of course an obvious example.

BITN is my favorite Immortal album, perfect fall album

Weird to see "Battles in the North" brought up so many times in quick succession after I just revisited it a few weeks ago for the first time in years. "Battles.." and Gorgoroth's "Incipit Satan" were the first two black metal releases I heard many years ago and it will always remain a favorite for me. At the Stormy Gates of Mist is probably my all-time favorite Immortal song.

Yesterday I revisited all of Antaeus's discography, save for some of the early demo tapes I don't have. A nice reminder of why they're one of my all-time favorite bands, even if I don't listen to them nearly as much as I used to. I strongly believe their 3rd album "Blood Libels" is their best and refuse to acknowledge 2016's "Condemnation" as even existing at this point. Also, their live show at Maryland Death Fest in 2013 was not only fucking perfect, it was one of the most physically demanding crowd experiences I've ever had. 50 minutes of blood on asphalt and trampled body parts without pause.
