Maybe "satire" isn't the most technically correct word in a strict collegiate sense, but the point is that it's usually pretty damn obvious when an artist is exploring fantasies without strictly advocating for their enactment. Calling African slaves "mongrel dogs" with a "flawed geneome" makes it pretty obvious that these songs are racist trash.
I was talking about stuff like Gorgasm that’s extremely misogynistic, so I really don’t know why you’re suddenly talking about dismembered people (horror) or monsters (fantasy).
So how would you know members of Gorgasm or similar-themed bands don’t secretly beat their girlfriends senseless at home or condone and encourage violence against women? You don’t and it wouldn’t matter if you did, because no elements of satire or parody are present in the lyrics making them reprehensible trash regardless of the - in your case entirely speculative - intentions of the author.
But, as you’ve admitted, we’re talking about lyrics here, not music, and the music of both Gorgasm and Arghoslent is quite enjoyable.

Re: 2020 album discussion thread

i am quite fond of both Arghoslent and GBK. Both bands have awesome music and i don't agree with their views but the lyrics were clearly written with thought behind them.



there's a bit on this acceptance speech about seeing past whatever views and seeing the actual art and appreciating it.

TLDR: psyched for both bands and new Arty B.

Oh yeah, new stuff from P2 2020:

Hmmm truth be told I hadn't thought about extreme mysogyny in lyrics, because it's not something I personally encounter. I dislike brutal death metal in general purely from a musical standpoint, so I haven't had to make that judgement call. Themes like that usually exist only in slamz and pornogrind.

If I'm being honest, I don't think I would enjoy a band that makes violence against women their main focus without it being apparent that they're exploring a theme purely for artistic reasons rather than advocating for it.

Re: 2020 album discussion thread

None of the guys in Gorgasm--especially Demian, the founding member--are crazed misogynists with a lust for masculine dominance. Their lyrical content is meant to be taken like old school horror flicks, it's just a shock + awe medium to drive the instrumentals. I'm willing to bet 99% of active bands with that kind of lyrical content are using that style purely as an artistic backdrop for their music. I'm stressing the word "active" here, cause it takes a lot of fucking time, money, and dedication to be in an active band that tours. There's literally no time or resources for misogynistic practices.

I don't doubt that, and my gut feeling would be to assume that's the case. Personally, I think I would have to draw a line depending on how it's depicted. A simple depiction/description of the acts wouldn't bother me. If the writers in question start adding stuff like "that bitch deserved it" or something, whether or not they actually mean it, it starts becoming too much like a suggestion rather than an exploration.

So is Flourishing pretty much dead for good now? I remember them awhile back saying they reformed and there would be a new album coming out eventually but then Aeviterne came and haven't really heard any update on Flourishing.

FFO: Spectral Voice, diSEMBOWELMENT, Thergothon, etc.

Album comes out later this month, I believe. No pre-orders apparently.

Nu Sutrah came outta nowhere for me...



Haven't seen new Afterbirth mentioned either - this song is giving me quite heavy Anata vibes (particularly Under a Stone with No Inscription):

My disappointment that it doesn't have vocals is mostly negated by how amazing the video is.

I kind of liked the fact that it didn't have lyrics. This seemed like a return to form for him - I liked him better when he was primarily a breakcore artist with extreme metal sprinkled in, rather than vice versa.

New Sutrah song is good, nice work Claude, looking forward to the album

Spectral Lore / Mare Cognitum split that is almost 2 hours long. This could be huge.

Re: 2020 album discussion thread

That?s incredible. Two of the most intriguing black metal bands going right now, I think Voidhanger is unfairly associated with Iceland DSO but they?re more eclectic a label than say Nordvis or Dark Descent.

Really happy Afterbirth are so quickly back after such a long stretch of demos. There are few bands doing early Wormed worship, the only slam worth talking about; with Epicardiectomy being signed to NSE and Organectomy from Australia I thought I?d try the sub genre given it?s seeping into spheres I admire, I went the Russian route and godawful it is.

The new Odious Mortem two tracks in is incredible; could use some tightening up in the songwriting, surprisingly given the twelve years it took to write but it?s early days and I guess also they?ve had an abundance of material, plus they are carrying the torch for that short lived modern sound of now defunct severed savior. None do it like neurotic era California bands.

As for racism in music, I?d be hard-pressed to find an smn forumer not gutted Craig Pillard isn?t a member of the Disma anymore.

That Afterbirth song is from their 2014 demp. It's the 3rd song. New recording sounds pretty good.

Yes ok fair enough shall we say until tragedy stops befalling them as the bassist has suffered several strokes and their lead guitarist last I heard has extreme carpal tunnel? My post was a remorseful one if perhaps ill informed detective.
