It warms my heart to see love for Black Death that isn't about the rarity from some collector dork. I've got an "exact replica" bootleg complete with the 7" and I've been smitten with them since the first spin. Don't sleep on those two bonus tracks they're as good as anything on the LP!

Have you listened to Black Death Resurrected, Zdan? Their 00s comeback album. It has a LOT of stuff that Sicky wrote in the early 80s. It's authentic as hell. They were entrancing live even amidst constant issues with their gear.


I love those two bonus tracks on that Black Death album. In general the CD reissue sounds and looks great and has those two tracks. Love it for that reason!

I have that album Jonpo. It is as good as anything on the self-titled. Anthemic, heavy, powerful, varied - everything you could want. I also have the demo CD they released and it also amazing. In general this band can do no wrong in my eyes.

I bought the (recent?) re-issue of that Black Death LP some time ago. And it fucking rules. Never would've known about them, unless watching some pretty insane YouTube interview.

Everybody into classic metal should really buy that album. Nothing to dislike there. The recent reissues on CD and LP sound amazing so there is that.

I was just on a big 'Live' kick myself a few months ago. I need to revisit Extreme Aggression. I'm a huge Kreator fan but that one didn't stick with me for some reason. Haven't listened to it in about five years.


I absolutely LOVE Extreme Aggression as well as that Live album, although I don't know any others by Live. Yes I'm that guy haha.

As for Black Death, I agree about the bonus tracks. Admittedly I know nothing beyond that album.

Try the opening track from their 2015 album "The Return of the Iron Messiah". I heard it one and fell IN LOVE with it. Absolutely blazing. If this does get your blood pumping as a heavy metal fan I do not know what will.

I can only echo the love for Black Death. Great band, and really good to play with as well. They treated us so nice in Cleveland.

You played with them? Beyond cool! How is Siki live? As over-the-top as on the record?

Twice now!
He's definitely got attitude on stage. He's very old-school and live you hear more than ever how he's influenced by Hendrix and other contemporaries. he sings his heart out and has loads of energy but I think what he loves most is playing guitar.


he gave me the biggest, most sincere hug after the Cleveland show. haha
I'm sure the band lost money on that as the turnout was somewhat low, but they paid us very nicely for our time and travel from Ontario. We weren't expecting it and it was rather generous. Hail those guys.

As of yesterday, I am now a homeowner. I am no longer an indentured servant to rent.

Within about two hours of owning the house, we already stripped one room of its wallpaper... that the previous owner had painted over. Then we set off bug bombs in every room and left. My current lease doesn't end until November, and I don't have my first mortgage payment until then. So we have a very chill time to move everything. Still, planning to have it all done by October.

Okay, so I'm still an indentured servant to rent for two more months, but you get the idea.

That sounds absolutely amazing. Siki is also a very good guitarist but his over-the-top vocals on that opening track of the classic Black Death record is what made me fall in love with them.

And I am beyond stoked for the new Black Death album. I hope it comes out soon!

Isn't having a mortgage way closer to indentured servitude than renting?

I would say no. Instead of giving away money I'll never see again to a landlord, I'm putting it into property I own and can sell, modify, and handle myself. A mortgage can also be paid off, rent cannot. There's more freedom to it as it were, and that's exactly what I want. Granted, the actual term refers to unpaid labor, not paying rent, so I was going with hyperbole.

I think what he's saying is that indentured servitude could be fulfilled/paid back and then you'd be free, whereas slavery is eternal. Ergo ~30 years of payments to a bank before owning entirely is to indentured servitude as infinity rent payments to a landlord is to slavery.

Ohhh gotcha. I didn't want to make a slavery analogy, and it appears to be better fitting. I'm not that knowledgeable.

So Neckbeard Deathcamp was just introduced as some silly joke band and suddenly they're playing at Maryland Deathfest next year. What a time to be alive.

I would be ok with them if they were actually any good, but to me it's just another joke band even if their hearts are in the right place. Good for them though; definitely not hating on the hustle.

I was recently laid off from a temp job, got back on the liquor, and have now moved out with a friend and former coworker and I’m kinda contemplating just fabricating up Tolkien-esque conspiracy theories to cover booze and rent money. Now that bill hicks- erm, Alex jones is out of a job someone’s gotta have high blood pressure and scream into a microphone about how Hillary Clinton went back in time and changed berenstein bears to berenstAin bears

Decided to check out the second Metal Allegiance album this afternoon. It's 2018 and people still use Max Cavalera as the go-to guest for their token "tribal metal" songs.

Max Cavalera regularly gets in touch with his Italian diplomat tribal rootz.

This Monday morning (Labor Day here in the US, ironically) my wife gave birth to our first child. She's beautiful and all went incredibly well. (We went the midwife/home-birth/no-medication route which, Lord willing we have any more kids, we'll definitely do again.) The sleepless nights and endless messy diapers are now upon us hahahahaha.

The Gaslight Anthem - one of my favorite bands. Caught them as an opener on 2008 and bought The 59 Sound a day later. Handwritten had a couple good ones, but Get Hurt was a major disappointment. Didn't like that one at all. Still hoping to see them become more active again soon, though.
