VARG VIKERNES’ YouTube Channel Banned As Part Of White Supremacist And Conspiracy Theorist Ban

VARG VIKERNES’ YouTube Channel Banned As Part Of White Supremacist And Conspiracy Theorist Ban

One of the channels affected by the new rules was Thulean Perspective, which was led by BURZUM frontman Varg Vikernes.

YouTube said in a statement:

“Today, we’re taking another step in our hate speech policy by specifically prohibiting videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status. This would include, for example, videos that promote or glorify N*zi ideology, which is inherently discriminatory. Finally, we will remove content denying that well-documented violent events, like the Holocaust or the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, took place.”

Varg Vikernes born on 22 March 1968, music-mad youngster Oystein Aarseth was described as a ‘quiet type’ with ‘strange friends’. For Oystein was into black and death metal,  In 1983, the Oslo teen and a fellow musician, Jorn Stubberud – known as Necrobutcher – bonded over a shared love of British band Motorhead. a year afther  the group Mayhem was born. Oystein was just 16, and later adopted the demonic name Euronymous. In 1991, tragically, Mayhem’s vocalist committed suicide. Then Necrobutcher left the band, and a man called Kristian ‘Varg’ Vikernes stepped in.

Described by another musician as ‘very intelligent, very charismatic, very evil’, Kristian was a force to be reckoned with Five years younger than Oystein, the two became friends. Kristian became known as The Count and, as well as performing with Mayhem, he continued to also release his own music under the project name Burzum.

Gradually, Mayhem became darker, to obsessed with Satan and evil. Oystein appeared in photos wearing a cape and with a sword, covered in corpse-like make-up. And soon the friendship soured. Kristian and Oystein became bitter rivals.

Kristian gave a newspaper interview in which he took credit for burning down a church. Some suggest this fuelled a contest to see ‘who could be more evil’.

And then the evil escalated to a whole new level. Murder!   in August 1992, a drummer from another band stabbed a man 37 times.

The evil stakes were raised… The following year, in the early hours of 10 August 1993, Oystein was at home in his Oslo flat when someone came to his door. He answered it dressed only in his underwear, and the caller chased Oystein into the stairwell and stabbed him 23 times in the chest, back and head. Following Oystein’s death.

The black-metal music scene was devastated by the loss of an icon.

On 9 August 1993,

black-metal musician Oystein Aarseth, also known as Euronymous, was stabbed 23 times in the head, neck and back, at his flat in Oslo, Norway. Was his murder the result of a bitter musical power struggle?

Born on 22 March 1968, music-mad youngster Oystein Aarseth was described as a ‘quiet type’

Kristian Vikernes, who spoke of the murder in Kerrang! magazine  the twisted musician said . ‘His death means nothing to me. I will dance and piss on his grave,’ 

A man pleased to now be the kingpin of the black-metal scene?
Police searched Vikernes’ home and found 150kg of explosives, which they believe he planned to use to blow up a church. But was he also responsible for Oystein’s death? And if so, why?. The police believed his motive was the battle for leadership of the black metal scene.

In September 1993, Vikernes was arrested. The following year, he went on trial charged with Oystein’s murder, as well as arson and possession of illegal weapons. In court, Vikernes spoke out about his extreme beliefs.
‘Through church burning and black-metal music we will reawaken the Norwegians’ feelings of belonging to Odin, god of Norse myth,’ he said.
And he claimed he’d acted in self defence, that Oystein had planned to torture him to death. He said he’d gone to see Oystein, a row had broken out and he’d stabbed him.

During the trial, the court was surrounded by teenage girls dressed in black, clutching pictures of The Count – Vikernes.
In May 1994, Kristian Vikernes was found guilty of the murder of Oystein Aarseth and multiple arson attacks on historic churches in Norway.
He was sentenced to 21 years in prison. After serving 15 years, he was released on parole in May 2009.

He moved to France with his wife and children, but it seems he hadn’t renounced his evil ways. In July 2014, neo-Nazi sympathiser Vikernes, then 41, was convicted by a French court of inciting racial hatred, after he published racist blog entries. He was given a £6,400 fine and a six-month suspended sentence.

He’d previously denied the charges, claiming the blog was written by an online impersonator. Vikernes vowed he would appeal his conviction.

and now anno 2019 YouTube Banned VARG VIKERNES’  freedom to speak…. to be continued

Croatian Black Metal TRYGLAV Unleashes ‘Evil Dead’ Inspired Lyric Video

Croatian Black Metal TRYGLAV Unleashes ‘Evil Dead’ Inspired Lyric Video

New Album ‘Night of Whispering Souls’ Out May 31st via Extreme Metal Music / Rockshots Records

Tryglav, the one man black metal band from Croatia has released a new lyric video for the single ‘Evil Dead’, a track inspired by the movie of the same title. The song is off the forthcoming debut album “Night of Whispering Souls” that will be unveiled on May 31, 2019, via Extreme Metal Music / Rockshots Records.

TRYGLAV explains:

“Here is another song that I wrote for one of my previous bands. When I wrote this song, I was inspired by the “Evil Dead” movie. I think that the guitar, drums, and vocals are combined perfectly! It’s a personal favourite, I especially love the riffs for this track. Pure horror black metal! ”

Check out ‘Evil Dead’ at the following link here.

The solo act known as TRYGLAV comes from the dark mind of Boris Behara, who was looking to express his vision in his own way and have full control over the music.

Tryglav is a god in Slavic mythology that represents the sky, the earth, and the afterlife. Channeling this power since 2018, Behara creates melodic, aggressive classic black metal with 80’s horror imaginary that is suitable for all fans of the genre looking for something fresh to bang their heads to.

The new album is the perfect combination of velocity and melody, some tracks are fast and brutal and others are melodic with catchy choruses that are easy to pick up during the first listen.

The album will be released through Extreme Metal Music / Rockshots Records on May 31, 2019.

Track Listing:
1. Under My Skin
2. Night of Whispering Souls
3. Deadline
4. Evil Dead
5. Creature of The Night
6. Werewolf
7. Beyond The Limit

 

 

Album pre-order available here.


Bio:
Tryglav is a Croatian one-man band formed in 2018 by Boris Behara. Tired of playing with people who didn’t have his same vision in music, at the beginning of 2018, he started with the idea to create his own band inspired by his love in black metal and horror imaginary. During the year 2018, seven songs have been composed and re-arranged in his personal studio many times before the final versions come out.
Due to the poor equipment for vocal recording, vocals had been entrusted to a singer called Morbid according to Behara’s lyrics and patterns. For the live shows and future records, vocals will be recorded by Behara. The idea for the plague doctors came out one day, when he thought how to create an impact imagine for the live shows.

In the year 2019, the album has been finished and the search for a studio for mixing and mastering had started. After many considerations, the studio was chosen, and the album was sent to Emissary Studios in Australia.
The album was sent then to some labels and after many considerations, Tryglav signed a worldwide deal with Italian label Extreme Metal Music/Rockshots Records.

Do you remember this? The tragic story of Cliff Burton’s death

Do you remember this? 

The tragic story of Cliff Burton’s death

Clifford Lee Burton or simply Cliff Burton (February 10, 1962 – September 27, 1986) was an American musician and songwriter, best known as the bass guitarist for Metallica from December 1982 until his death in September 1986.
Burton joined Metallica in 1982 and performed on the band’s first three studio albums: Kill ‘Em All, Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets. He also received a posthumous writing credit for the song “To Live Is to Die” from the band’s fourth studio album, …And Justice for All. 
During the European leg of the Damage Inc. tour in support of Master of Puppets, the band complained that the sleeping cubicles on their tour bus were unsatisfactory and uncomfortable. To decide who received pick of the bunks, Kirk Hammett and Burton drew cards. On the evening of September 26, 1986, Burton won the game with an ace of spades, thereby getting the first choice of bunk. Burton was sleeping shortly before 7 am on September 27 when, according to the driver, the bus skidded off the road (the E4, 12 miles (19 km) north of Ljungby), and flipped onto the grass in Kronoberg County. Burton was thrown through the window of the bus, which fell on top of him, resulting in his death.

The bus driver said that the crash was caused by the bus hitting a patch of black ice on the road, but James Hetfield later stated that he first believed the bus flipped because the driver was drunk. Hetfield also stated that he walked long distances down the road looking for black ice and found none. When local freelance photographer Lennart Wennberg (who attended the crash scene the following morning), was asked in a later interview about the likelihood that black ice caused the accident, he said it was ‘out of the question’ because the road was dry and the temperature around 2 °C (36 °F), above the freezing point of 0 °C (32 °F).

Watch Metallica talking about his death:

This was confirmed by police who – like Hetfield – also found no ice on the road. Ljungby detective Arne Pettersson was reported in a local newspaper to have said the tracks at the accident site were exactly like ones seen when drivers fall asleep at the wheel. However, the driver stated under oath that he had slept during the day and was fully rested; his testimony was confirmed by the driver of a second tour bus that was carrying the band’s crew and equipment. The driver was determined not at fault for the accident and no charges were brought against him.

 

The first longplayer from the Belgian band “High Inquisitor Woe”

The first longplayer from the Belgian band “High Inquisitor Woe”

Line-up:Vocals : Glenn Stappaerts (ex-Gypsy Lypzz) – Guitar : Mathijs Ignoul (Fleshcarved, ex-Carnyx) – Guitar : Koen Keijers (Waveshape Audio) – Bass : Dennie Grondelaers (ex-Saille, ex-Gorath, ex-Carnyx (live)) – Drums : Benjamin Dommershausen (Escape, Nether, Fleshcarved (live))

On February 15th 2019 the first longplayer Belgian band High Inquisitor Woe, called ‘The Taint’, has been released.

This album has been released through the band themselves so it’s again a fully independent release. “The Taint” is the debut album from Belgian doom metal band High Inquisitor Woe. Expect 57 minutes of epic doom metal for fans of Candlemass, Reverend Bizarre, Sleep, Black Sabbath and Venom.


The Belgian band “High Inquisitor Woe” was conceived as a two piece band in late 2014. Its primary purpose was creating a blend of traditional doom metal and other heavy genres. With lyrical singing, but spiced with other vocal styles as well. This resulted in the 2015 EP called “Liquid Times”. High InquisitorWoe became a two piece vessel for Glenn en Mathijs to vent all of their personalexperiences, each of them hidden behind a cool story. Sometimes funny, often incredibly serious.

Sources of inspiration are movies, comics and literature they enjoyed in their youth when they wanted to escape reality. This includes wizards, great conquerors, crazy journalists, ancient history, kushadelic nights, mythical beasts, spiritual experiences and a certain mistrust of seductive, unclad women. In short, Conan The Barbarian and Hunter S. Thompson.

After the EP, High Inquisitor Woe needed more members to be able to perform live. After some switches and bad luck with unmotivated band members, they fnally landed a steady line-up in early 2018. Benjamin (from hardcore band Escape) took over the battery section, and a bit later Dennie (known for his work with Saille and Gorath) joined on bass duties.

It is with this new line-up that the band started to record their upcoming full length. After recording their EP with Koen Keijers the band went back to him for this next endeavour and it was during this recording process that they asked Koen to join the band on guitar. This new album will boast a more defned sound, beter song structures and new atmospheres. It is an obvious continuation of the EP but also a massive step forward. High Inquisitor Woe has released “The Taint” upon the unsuspecting crowd and is ready to back it up with an epic live show. Prepare yourselves for pounding drums, crushing guitars and witchy vocals!

Short bio:
The Belgian band “High Inquisitor Woe” was conceived as a two piece band in late 2014. Its sole purpose: creating a blend of traditional doom metal and other heavy genres with Conan the Barbarian and Hunter S. Thompson as the main lyrical infuences. They released the EP “Liquid Times” in 2015, after which they took the time to complete a line-up and work on their debut full length. That debut, “The Taint”, has now been released and the time has come for High Inquisitor Woe to claim their place in the music world.

Decibel Mag Premiere THE FLAYING’s ‘Elegy of Emptiness’ Ft. Cryptopsy’s Chris Donaldson

For fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, Deicide, Archspire, Cryptopsy, Suffocation – New Album ‘Angry, Undead’ Out March 22nd via PRC Music

THE FLAYING, death metal from Quebec City, Canada will release their second album “Angry, Undead” on March 22, 2019, via PRC Music. Working with Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) at The Grid in Montreal, QC, the band has manifested pure mayhem for their fastest and most brutal debauchery to date.
Their second single off this devastating sophomore album is ‘Elegy of Emptiness’, which is being premiered via Decibel Magazine:

“We look forward to this album reaching the masses, from start to finish, we feel it will be a great listen. We put in a lot of effort to choose the track listing to feature an onslaught of both French and English songs. We feel it’s great importance to take influenced international English death metal and blend it with sung French Canadian death metal. We have French tracks like ‘La Valse du Scorpion’, ‘Disloqué’ and ‘Place du Parvis’ along with English assaults with ‘Genuflect’, ‘Elegy of Emptiness’, ‘Angry, Unleashed’ and ‘Angry, Undead’. We feel they all meet the standards of tone and sound of international death metal songs. Plus them being produced, mixed and mastered at The Grid (Montreal, QC) by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy), a legend in Quebec and beyond, gave it that extra touch of death.”

Listen to ‘Elegy of Emptiness’ here.


The concept of “Angry, Undead” is an intricate one with each of the eight songs falling under a distinct axis: Chaos (social manifestations); Madness (individual manifestations); and Void (existential manifestations). It is brutal, instinctive, unique, and wicked, and is recommended for fans of Cryptopsy, Archspire, Suffocation, and Deicide.

Album pre-order available on Bandcamp and PRC Music.

BIO:
And it all began with the rope dancer….
Formed in July 2010, The Flaying is a death metal band based in Quebec City, Canada that focuses on fluid melodic construction of songs featuring brutal sections which are further complemented by vocals with both low end growls and hateful high pitches.
Since their first release Unhope (2014), Seb, Did, Wil and Mike are forging ahead in order to adopt a more brutal approach: adding new grooves, a greater velocity, and creating a wider ambiance as well as keeping breakdowns and progressive parts with counterpoints constructing a main theme of anger and a general hate of humanity.
Soldiering on with the philosophy of one band, four individuals, four personalities to collide, the writing process is a team effort initially seeing the band collaborate on riffs and groove ideas, adding a flourish of low-end colors, and blending the whole thing together with flying vocals that create a manifest of pure mayhem. This product of this steadfast diablerie will be realized on March 22, 2019, when the second album “Angry, Undead” is unleashed on PRC Music.


 

The Heard now unveil the music video ‘A Death Supreme’

The Heard now unveil the music video ‘A Death Supreme’

After celebrated Swedish hard rock band Crucified Barbara called it quits in 2016, former members Klara, Ida and Nicki wasted no time in putting The Heard together. Joining forces with Skinny Kangur and Pepper Potemkin, the band began work on would become their debut album, ‘The Island’, out now on on Despotz Records.

In the deep, dark waters of the Baltic Sea there is an island. A very peculiar island. At first glance it might seem beautiful and peaceful, idyllic even, but the island’s seductive powers are not all they seem.

The Heard was formed when Klara, Ida and Nicki wanted to keep playing music after their previous band Crucified Barbara called it quits in 2016. Together with Skinny Kangur from Deathstars and the singer and burlesque artist Pepper Potemkin they form the new band that has released two singles on their own. Now it’s confirmed that The Heard has signed a deal with


The Heard is all about the joy of playing music but the sound is distorted and dark. The music is brought to life by all five members through shortcuts and detours with a vision about a place where reality and mystery meet, the haunted island. The Heard’s debut album ‘The Island’ revolves around the characters and places on this mysterious island. “The Island” is a concept album where the listener becomes acquainted with an island that is located somewhere between dream and reality, a place with room for both the ordinary and the supernatural. An island filled with both love and sorrow, where vitality and death live side by side.

The band explains that ” ”A Death Supreme” is the tale of a woman who decided to create a new destiny for herself by moving to ”The Island”. Her past caught up with her though, and the attraction of the nature got under her skin and spread inside her like the wind. It led her down to the water and into ”A Death Supreme”. // The Heard
