Relationship and Black Metal Advice Wednesday- The Secret Sexist Conspiracy and Wolves in the Throne Room- Black Cascade (2009)

Women think that they are perceived as stupid for reasons other than their words and actions. Seriously. They think that there is some hidden, sexist conspiracy, plotting to repress their talents. It’s a near universal trait among women also. If a woman thinks another is stupid, she’s labeled a bitch, if a man does, he’s sexist. I’ve never heard a woman say, “He/she thinks I’m dumb because I said something really stupid”. It’s like those Sex in the City whores, they spend years fucking every guy they can and then can’t figure out why they haven’t found Mr Right. Never occurs to any of them that they’re doing something wrong themselves. I think the whole series ended happily with all of their vocal chords being surgically removed. It’s either that or they all dry up and learn how to cook, I can’t remember.
Honestly, listening to a woman try and discern why she is viewed as stupid is like watching a dog chasing it’s tail.

Ok, my last review of Wolves in the Throne Room was luke warm and I haven’t listened to them much since, but there was a time when I was a fan and listening to this album again brought me back around. Yes, there is a trendiness about them, but a few of their albums are really, really good too. A duo hailing from Washington state, signed to Southern Lord Records and playing masterful USBM, they defiantly fall into the realm of “true black metal”.
WitTR has a refined sound that leans towards symphonic and assuredly not lo fi, so heavy use is made of synthesizers. In Black Cascade the synths are subdued and not overpowering, unlike some of their releases… Really, they are hit and miss and always have been. The first demo was epic (I’m doing a post about it next month), but the second demo was disappointing, but their next two releases, Diadem of 12 Stars and Two Hunters were great. Black Cascade has solid guitar and drum pieces that aren’t drowned out by the synthesizers and rates a 88%, recommended and WitTR is defiantly a “should hear” band for any modern metal head.

Relationship Advice and Black Metal Wednesday; Women’s Liberation and Black Witchery- The Summoning of Infernal Legions (1998)

The other day in line at Publix I notice this older woman of about 45 in line ahead of me with twelve pack of 8 ounce diet Coke and a microwave dinner, and it struck me that this is what the whole Women’s Liberation movement fought for; the freedom for women to go home to an empty house that she controls where every object is placed… Honestly, that movement has just resulted in the women of our society being bitchier. Now all of them have the right to talk and are totally abusing the privilege, besides for the fact that the vast majority of them don’t have enough sense to be making their own decisions. Old Girl didn’t have a smile on her face and would likely have greatly enjoyed being stuffed in a dog crate with a Go-Cam strapped to her head get bumped around the room and generally shown a good time. Obviously she is kinda dumb and needs someone to take care of her and she obviously ran off everyone who tried by “expressing her independence” (which is code for being an excessively bitchy and or slutty). All for what? To go home to an empty house in her old age and rub the dirty parts while watching MSNBC? Whatevesies, that’s the price of freedom, I guess.

Today we have Black Witchery’s EP from 1998, The Summoning of Infernal Legions. A local band from Winter Springs and one of the older Black Metal bands still around and touring and playing sick music. They are lesser known in America than Europe (where they frequently tour) and one of older black metal bands still around and putting out relevant music. Another “should hear” band, and while American their sound doesn’t really fit into the USBM label. They’re “that black metal band from Winter Springs”, best way of putting it. They play straight up black metal, original, furious, and just bad ass in general. This EP is great and highly recommended, 97%
