Myrholt/Vinter/Myrholt Design/2018 EP Review


  Myrholt  are  a  solo  project  from  Norway  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  an  old  school  and  Norwegian  style  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2018  ep  "Vinter"  which  was  released  by  Myrholt  Deisgn.

  Atmospheric  sounding  keyboards  start  off  the  ep  which  also  mixes  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  music  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  as  well  as  the  vocals  being  mostly  grim  black  metal  screams.

  Both  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  while  the  music  is  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  also  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  all  of  the  music  sticks  to  mostly  a  slow  or  mid  paced  direction  with  only  a  small  amount  of  melodic  guitar  leads  and  when t he  music  finally  speeds  up a   small  amount  of  tremolo  picking and  blast  beats  can b e  heard  which  also  gives  the  song  a more  raw  feeling,  acoustic  guitars  can  also  be  heard  briefly.

  Myrholt  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  his  old  school style  of  Norwegian  black  metal,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Norse  Mythology,  Nature  and  occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Myrholt  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  old  school  Norwegian  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Heimdall".  8  out  of  10.  

Ildra/Edelland/Heidens Hart Records/2018 CD Re-Issue Review


  Ildra  are  a  band  from  the  United  Kingdom  that  plays  a  pagan  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2011  album  "Edelland"  which  will  be  re-issued  in  March  by  Heidens  Hart  Records.

  Acoustic  guitars  along  with  some  other  folk  instruments  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  direction  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  as  well  as  the  vocals  being  mostly  grim  black  metal  screams.

  A  decent  amount  of  melody  can  be  heard  in  the  guitar  riffing  while  back  up  shouts  are  also  used  at  times  along  with  some  spoken  word  parts  also  being  used  at  times  as  well  as  the  solos  and  leads  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  some  of  the  tracks  bring  in  clean  pagan  vocals.

  Some  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  while  a  couple  of  the  songs  are  instrumentals  and  when  spoken  word  parts  are  utilized  they  give  the  music  more  of  a  medieval  feeling  along  with  the  music  sticking  mostly  to  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  direction,  nature  and  battle  sounds  are  also  utilized  briefly.

  Ildra  plays  a  style  of  pagan  black  metal  that  is  also  very  heavily  influenced  by  folk  music,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  heavy  while t he  lyrics  cover  Anglo  Saxon  Paganism,  Heathenism,  Heritage  and  Mythology  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Ildra  are  a  very  great  sounding  folk  inspired  pagan  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  re-issue.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Rice Æfter Oðrum"  "Ofer Hwælweg we Comon"  and  "Swa Cwæð se Eardstapa".  8/5  out  of  10. 

      

Morbosidad Interview


1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
**Playing shows,drinking and of course trying to write new stuff for a split with Ungod.


2.You have a new album coming out in March, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
**We always tried to keep our same sound in every recording, thats what make us different from any other band. Im really satisfied with the production, is really well produced compared to our previous recordings.


3.I have read that at the end of 2018 the band is going to split, can you tell us a little bit more about this decision?
**Yes, I think its time to put it to rest. Its been 25 years already, I dont have time for shows anymore plus the scene sucks nowadays, too many wanna be's, posers and pretentious people that makes me sick, everytime I played or go to shows. I cant deal with that shit, Im gonna miss it alot though (Morbosidad) is everything to me but I have differents plans, a project in mind. I owed everything to Morbosidad, got to go places I never though I wi and met so many bands and people, I had a really good run.


4.You have been playing a 'war metal' style since the early 90's back when only a handful of bands where playing this style, do you feel you might have had a huge influence on a lot of the newer bands that have been playing this genre over the years?
**I heard from some bands once in a while, they tell me how much Morbosidad influenced them on their music, lyrics etc. I takes me by surprised to heard that but it feel good to hear it, makes you proud.


5.All of your lyrics have been written in Spanish, why did you pick this language?
**Cause its my native language plus I think it gives our music a more primitive, evil and blasphemous sound.

**I've been into the dark side all my life since I remember. its our only path that helps us to get through in this pathetic life we live in.

**A spit on god's face, nothing but blasphemous Morboso Metal.


8.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
**I really enjoyed playing Black Flames of Blasphemy in Finland. The sound was so amazing, the bands on the bill plus having Sodomatic Slaughter playing Salomon' Gate with Morbosos was unique, something I will never forget. Our performances are always full of hate, chaos and insanity. I fuckin dig crowds when they get rawdy and a fucked up, is always a plus fpr us to see that.


9.What are some of the final touring or show plans for 2018?
**We are playing El Salvador and Guatemala once again this March. Then in April we will desecrate Tennessee for the first time. May we have a local show in San Antonio, Texas. June we will spill some blood at Destrtoying Texas Metal Fest. July, we are going back to play Gospel of the Serpent Fest. Then in October Peru and Colombia or Chile. Thats what we have so far.

10.Originally the band was based in Oakland, California but now re-located to Houston, Texas, can you tell us a little bit more about this move?

11.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer material by fans of war, black, and death metal?
**Its been great so far, Im always thankful for the fan base we have, they are loyal and die hards. A big hails and horns up to them for their support.


12.Are the band members going to focus more on their other musical projects after 2018?
**I think so, Joe Necro and Matt Mayhem play in Blaspherian. Ded Ted on Hell Razor, so Im sure they will be busy with their priority bands. Or who.knows, may be some other project, who.knows, depends all on them now.


13.Are there any newer influences that you have brought onto the new recording that you where not able to do on previous releases?
**No sir, no need to. Influences are always the same ones: Sarcofago,Beherit,Blasphemy and Archgoat.


14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

3.Your lyrics cover Satanism and some anti Muslim and Christian topics, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in Satanism and your hatred for white light religions?

Of Feather And Bone Interview


1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
Since we recorded in the summer we have been busy with preparing for the release of the record as well as preparing our schedules for being on the road in support of it. We’ve also started preliminary ideas to start writing again as soon as we can!

2.You have a new album coming out in March, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
This album really portrays what we’ve been striving to make our sound for a long time. We released an album over two years ago. When we wrote that album and recorded it, there was a year gap between that and the actual release of that record. We were sitting on writing this way for around three years out of respect to that record and playing those songs to help push Records. When that album finally became dated, we went full on head first towards writing this way. People think that this transition in sound was abrupt but in actuality it’s been in the works for the past 3-4 years.

3.The earlier material was more crust and grind but over the years you have added a lot of death, black and war metal influences into your music, can you tell us a little bit more about going into this direction?
Kind of like stated previously, we’ve always tried to tie in different aspects of the music we enjoy listening to. But when it came time to committing to the sound we have now, we really honed in on the death aspect while still keeping our black metal and even dbeat roots present.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore on the new album?
This record takes a basis on the ideas of, of course, death. But not taking a typical and cliche approach towards it. That’s when using the traditions, rituals and ideas about death from my culture and leaving things a little vague, came out.

5.Some of your lyrics also deal with 'Aztec Mythology', can you tell us a little bit more about how you got interested in the topic?
My father is from Mexico and my mother was of Mexican-American descent. I was raised to always stay in touch with my culture. As I got older I got really into indigenous rights and maintaining traditions. This is something that has always resonated with me and when it came time to writing lyrics, the other guys in the band supported the idea of going this route.

6.You also attack Abrahamic faiths from more of an Aztec approach, do you feel a lot of extreme metal bands lack originality when they attack this religion lyrically?
Honestly, whatever approach other bands take is their own perception. I attack Christianity and Catholicism from an indigenous standpoint based not solely on meso-American cultures but other indigenous cultures all over the world. So many people have lost their identities of their ancestors through ethnic cleansing and religious deceit. I blame the Christians for their centuries of atrocities towards other cultures. I’m not an atheist. I recognize the fact that Christianity and Catholicism exists in our world from basic standpoints to radical fundamentalism.I don’t write about Satan because to recognize Satan is recognize the Bible and the institution it has created. I’m not anti abrahamic nor is anyone in our band. But my standpoint comes from that of my ancestors who lost everything to conquest. Who traded their rituals, education, wisdom and ways of life for disease, destruction, rape and a bible.

7.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Of Feather And Bone'?
It was a name we chose over 6 years ago. It was something that came through dialogue. We knew it was unique and we’d never have to worry about anyone stealing it haha. But as of now, we keep the name even through evolution because it’s only a name. People can judge it all they want but in the end, we let our music speak for itself.

8.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We try to keep our stage performance as raw and real as it can be. We record with the same gear we play on. There isn’t anything programmed or synthetic. We keep it simple and fast. As far as memorable shows; I can only speak on my own behalf here, but we’ve played so many shows all over the US, Europe and Canada. Some good. Some awful. But we played a show in France (as the city slips my mind of course) but I remember how most people there weren’t familiar with us. They were mainly there for the headliner. But as we kept playing and just doing our thing, we won the audience over and the enthusiasm they showed to our band is something I always try to remember. We may play to 5 people or 100 people. It’s our job to go represent what we’ve worked hard to do. And if we can truly be happy and have fun doing what we do, then that will radiate to those watching us and hopefully get them on board as well.

9.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?
We have plans to tour the full US this summer with a really great band. We are touring around northwest terror fest in Seattle, 71grind fest in Colorado Springs and Austin Terror fest in Texas. We will be announcing those dates very soon. We will also be playing for the first time in Mexico City on April 1st for Total Death over Mexico with dead congregation, ascended dead and more

10.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer material by fans of extreme metal?
Man. It’s been insane. The amount of praise, feedback and overall following with the new material has been something we’ve never seen before. I’m excited for the record to just be out and see how the overall reception to it is.

11.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We just want to keep doing what we like to do. Writing fast, raw death metal filled with riffs and honesty.

12.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Ooof. Man. I can only answer for myself but there are so many bands out there that I like to pick and choose aspects about what they do to create a Frankenstein’s monster of death metal. For example; the chaos of Ascended Dead with the precision riffs of Incantation with the blasting of early suffocation to the atmospheres of Temple Nightside and the slow doom of Disembowelment.

13.What are some of your non musical interests?
D is an affluent chef here in Denver and that keeps him busy always. P drums in some other projects as well as being a coffee snob haha. I spend as much free time as I can hiking and boxing.

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Send total support to Bruni and Profound Lore. Dave at Earsplit. Ethan and the rest of Primitive Man. Paul and the rest of our friends in Blood Incantation/Spectral Voice. Tomb Mold. And the Denver metal scene. And way too many other people.

  Acoustic  guitars  along  with  some  other  folk  instruments  start off  the  album   while  blast  beats  and  grim  black  metal  screams  can  also  be  heard  quite  a  bit  throughout  the  recording  as  well  as  the  tremolo  picking  giving  the  songs  a  more  raw  feeling  and  all  of  the  music  is  done  with  no  electric  instruments.

  Finger  picking  and  full  chords  can  also  be  heard  from  the  acoustic  guitars  while  the  songs  also b ring  in a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  one  track  bringing  spoken  word  parts  onto  the  recording  as  well  as  the  music  also  having  a  very  medieval  feeling  at  times  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  long  and  epic  in  length.

  On  this  recording  pagan  Megalith  takes  the  raw  black  metal  style  into  more  of  an  acoustic  direction  as  well  as  capturing  the  aggression  with  no  electric  guitars  and  adding  in  elements  of  folk  music,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Hungarian  and  cover  nihilism  and  death  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  pagan  Megalith  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  raw  black  metal  and  folk  music,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Sxakad  az  eg  /Sky  Is  Ripping"  "Tovestol/By  The  Root"  and  "Egy  vilag  omlik  ossze/A  World  Collapses".  8out  of  10.

Peosphoros Interview

1. For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?


Hi sweetie, we are a politically correct Pink Metal band that is trying to save white race from extinction. We also support fundamental Islamism and Jihad. <3 p="">


2. You have an album coming out in march, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?


Babygirl I would describe it as the soundtrack to Rape. All our members are certified rape victims. <3 p="">


3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?


Torturing animals, beating women, raping children, beauty of Islamic terror, you know, metal things, missing in the lyrics of other so called extreme metal bands who pretend to be satanist while just singing about the moon and black flame mumbo jumbos lollipops sucking pussy. <3 p="">


4.You refer to yourself as a "LGBTQMN' what the fuck this the 'MN' mean?


Muslim & Nazi. They are the most misunderstood minorities. Awww<3 p="">


5. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Peosphoros'?


Lots of bands use Satan/Lucifer in their fashion, but fashion is not art. Eosphoros means lightbringer in Greek; Lucifer. Peosphoros means dickbringer. Trannies with cocks, the scariest evil Satan has spawned. HEIL SHEMALEREICHALLAH! <3 p="">


6. Has the band done any live shows or are you afraid to get your ass kicked by nazi's?


Are these the same sissy Nazis that can't keep a bunch of trust fund twittorior Antifa kids out of metal if their life depended on it? I might as well be afraid of being hit by a bus on the way to the show. Pathetic way to die Leyla. Die fighting for your country and Allah. We will play live, and infect tranny aids to everyone who tries to stop us. <3 p="">


7. You also have a Christian and a Muslim in the band and also support Antifa, why do you associate with these low life's?


We support muslims because they are brutal and metal. A captured Isis commander calmly confessed killing over 900 people and raping over 500 women including children single handedly. What religion is as brutal in 2018? Lucifaggotianism? Ewww

Antifa cleans the scene from all these faggot bands as we explain in this video: youtu.be/ScBGTWfDRZI

Christians are the only hope of the white race to survive. <3 nbsp="" p="">


8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of extreme metal?


Very good, it promotes itself, people are fed up with fake extremity and performing in Israel. <3 nbsp="" p="">


9.You claim to be against black metal but some of your riffing and vocals have touches of the genre, if you hate the genre so much than why is the influence on your music?


We hate black metal because it is made by gays who are afraid of antifa-ggots, not because of its aesthetic. It has influence because it used to be made by chicks with balls, we want those big smelly fluffy balls back on our face. Mmmmm sexy!! <3 nbsp="" p="">


10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?


Our music is a penis so we want to head into virgin shemales with it. <3 nbsp="" p="">


11. What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?


I love Isis chants and Sia. Smaragda listens to Britney Spears and Nazi marches. <3 nbsp="" p="">


12. Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?


Buy our stuff, we are people of colour, gay, trans and all our money will be donated to Syrian Refugees and Freedom Of Palestine: http://peosphoros.com/store.html <3 p="" xxx="">

 Of  Feather  And  Bone  are  a  band  from  Denver,  Colorado  that  plays  a  mixture  of  war,  black  and  death  metal  with  elements  of  crust  and  grindcore  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Bestial  Hymns  Of  Perversion"  which  will  be  released  in  March  by  Profound  Lore  Records.

  Dark  and  distorted  sounds  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  grim  black  metal  screams  a  few  seconds  later  before  going  into  a  very  fast  war  metal direction  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  brutal  sounding  blast  beats  along  with  some   bestial  death  metal  growls  while  the  music  also  mixes  in  elements  of  grindcore.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  some  songs  also  mix  in  elements  of  crust  and  doom  metal  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  brief  use  of  dark  yet  melodic  guitar  leads  can  also  be  heard.

  Of  Feather  And  Bone  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  war,  black  and  death  metal  and  mixes them  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  along  with  some  elements  of  crust,  grind  and  doom  metal,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  horror  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Of  Feather  And  Bone  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  war,  black  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Repulsive  Obscurity"  "Mockery  of  The  Ascension"  and  "Throne  Of  The  Serpent".  8  out  of  10.

Peosphoros/Pink Metal/SGW Records/2018 Full Length Review



 Peosophoros  are  a  joke  band  from  the  United  Kingdom  that  makes  a  mockery  of  the  whole  social  justice  warrior  and  political  correct  sub  culture  that  has  been  contaminating  the  extreme  metal  world  for  years  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Pink  Metal"  which  will  be  released  in  March  by  SGW  Records.

  Flaming  queer  spoken  word  parts  start  off  the  album  before  going  into a  heavier  direction  which  also  introduces  whining  screams  onto  the  recording  while  the  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  during  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  bring  in  more  of  a  raw  black  metal  vibe and  a  touch  of  punk  can  also  be  heard  at times.

  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in a  very  melodic  fashion  while  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  some  annoying  clean  vocals  also  being  used  at  times  and  some  of  the  screams  have  a  depressing  vibe  but  in  more  of  the  I  got  raped  up  the  ass  and  I  cant  stop  crying  style  mode  and  when  guitar  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  melodic  fashion  and  on  one  track  the  vocals  get  semi  operatic.

  Peosophoros  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  black,  doom,  death,  thrash  and  glam  metal  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  their  humorous  pink  metal  style,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  are  purely  ignorant  politically  correct  bullshit  about  black  metal  culture,  the  gay  community  and  sticking  up  for  worthless  antifa,  Christian  and  Muslim  fucks.

  In  my  opinion  Peosophorous  are  a  band  worth  listening  to  if  you  want  to  have   a  good  laugh  and  this  is  obviously  a  fake  novelty  act  since  it  tries  to  hard  to  be   politically  correct  which  shows  that  the  sjw's  ruined  metal  enough  to  a  point  where  something  like  this  would  almost  be  believable  but  never  existed  20  years  ago,.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Britney  Therapy" and  "Terrorism".  7  out  of  10.

Misrule Interview


1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
MISRULE is the solo death/grind project that I’ve wanted to do for quite some time now. I started this project after leaving my old band behind to move across the country, and I didn’t really have much time to be in an active band, so I started writing and recording everything myself. Now I have no boundaries, no set backs, and no one to please but myself. I’ve always appreciated bands who music pushes things to the absolute limit, and I strive to do that with mine. If you like genuinely pissed off music, then you should like this.

2.You have a demo coming out in March, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
Since I recorded and mastered everything myself (I’m no recording engineer by any means), I was able to get things to sound how I wanted them, within reason. In the recordings, I wanted them to be a pulverizing wall of sound that could easily asphyxiate you if you let it. I like to think I got that point across.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
Most of my lyrical content comes from an outside perspective. I write songs about veganism and how awful animal agriculture is, depression, toxic behavior, and corruption.


4.I know that the musical project was name after a Nightbringer song, how does this name fit in with the musical styles that you play?
Yes, I did get the name from a Nightbringer song, but if you dig a little deeper into the word Misrule, you will find that it holds meaning relating to how poorly the current state of government treats it’s people.

5.Currently there is only one member in the band, are you open to working with other musicians or do you prefer to remain solo?
As much as I appreciate the freedom to be able to write what I want to write and have no one else to answer to, I have actually been working with a friend to start playing these songs live, and potentially write more and turn this into a full band.

6.I have noticed other than the bandcamp or label page there is not much information about the musical project online, is this intentional?

This isn’t totally intentional, it’s just because this project is brand new and I haven’t really felt the need to go out of my way and create more of an internet presence.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black, death metal and grindcore?
There hasn’t been much feedback yet. There are a couple of reviews out there, like yours and the one on Metal Injection, that seem to enjoy the music. Hopefully more feedback comes when the entire tape is released, and not just one song.

8.Are you or have you been involved with any other bands or musical projects?
This project is an evolution of my old band Guilt, from New Hampshire. I did most of the song writing for that band, and I’m sure you’ll be able to make some easy connections between the music. You can check it out here,

Also, check out some of the other past members new bands.

9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?
Ideally, I’d like to tour with a full band. I’m getting a little older and I’m getting myself into a career right now, so I’m not sure how feasible that will be. Otherwise, I’ll be playing as often and as loud as I can until I die.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
My influences rotate as fast as the new bands I’m listening to. I don’t like to bog myself down with “These are the 4 bands I want to sound like”. I’m constantly drawing influence from everything, whether it be music, art, what’s going on in the world, things my friends say to me, etc. As for bands I’ve been listening to a lot lately, check out Vermin Womb, Hierophant, Plebeian Grandstand, Infernal Coil, Vitriol, and Desolate Shrine.


11.What are some of your non musical interests?
When I’m not playing music, I’m usually designing artwork for myself or other bands. You can check out my artwork here,

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for reaching out and having this interview. Also, thanks to anyone who reads this and gives my music a listen. I will always be incredibly appreciative of anyone who supports me in any way possible.
