Wake Up and Smell the Satan! – April 20, 2018

wake-up-and-smell-satan

For a stretch of time, this space profiled some of the most legendary and emergent black metal and infernally infused extreme music. Whether it was Behemoth or Diocletian, it was all deliciously dark magic worth your time.

It’s been a lively few days. Between the arrest of James Larkin on human trafficking charges to the 13th annual exorcists convention hosted by the Vatican (the decline of Christianity and rise of the Internet are driving the exorcism business) to the long-winding Septicflesh/Dark Funeral tour, the (sinister) heavens have much to rejoice about this week. On the down side, French protesters are seeking to shut down Hellfest on charges of Satanism, and two of Rotting Christ’s members were jailed this week in the country of Georgia, allegedly for practicing Satanism. Capping it all off with the day every doughnut shop eagerly awaits seems fitting.

Finally this week, Sentient Ruin and Argento Records announced they would jointly issue French black metal act Novae Militiae’s 2017 album Gash’khalah to vinyl and cassette. The digital release of infernal noise and throwback black metal fury came out last year. “Black Temple Consecration” is among the beauties of this release.
