After the (third!) infusion of Protes Bengt into the Church, it was only natural to upload Filthy Christian's short output. Great references: two of these guys operated Protes Bengt, and there is a Mob 47 cover on Mean, of which we praise the artwork because it is always comforting to watch a dead politician. We also praise its musical content of primitive 80s grindcore that no fan of early ND shall bypass. Maybe not as mind-blowing as the output of the early UK scene: in 1990 we were already used to the savagery of the genre, yet we always welcome a new collection of short sharp shocks. Lyrically, it is as juvenile and worthless as you can imagine, don't read the lyrics. In short: a good grinding release, not a classic but still a worthy piece for your collection. The following EP is less exciting: they ostensibly tried to jump on the Swedish death metal bandwagon, and these three songs are a competent tribute to the sound, but not a betterment of what Dismember or Entombed were doing then. A good but forgettable EP.

Black metal paradise! Involving the fine gentlemen from the other Polish high density black stars of total zer Furia and Odraza, MasseMord deliver a flawless discography. The first two releases push the black metal envelop to the best extremes of brutality and finesse: the expertise manifests itself through stellar compositions and instrumentation propelled by an almost infinite amount of power and rage that shames the last ten years of Belphegor. This is high caliber, world-class metal. Then there is the completely amazing The Madness and its 35 minutes-long mono-riff song, a trip into hypnosis and dissolution into the self that has no equivalent - it is not funeral doom. And then there is the last album which elevates their initial blackness to other dimensions of creativity and mind twisting, an unmovable masterpiece of grandeur and apocalypse. I like big words when I digress about big music. All hail MasseMord! Blackness of the triplazering monstrosities and voracious creatures in the EZTT!

Venom vs. Venom Inc.

Venom Inc. - Avé - 2017
Venom - Storm The Gates - 2018
01. Venom Inc. - Avé, 2017 CD Album
     Nuclear Blast, Nuclear Blast - NB 3801-2, 3801-2
02. Venom - Storm The Gates, 2018 CD Album
     Spinefarm Records - 2577021626
Laaaaaaaadies and gentlemeeeen! From the very depths of zerrRrRRRrRrrRRrrrRRR, Venoooooooooooooom twiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice! For those who are not Venom-woke, since 2015 we've enjoyed two concurrent incarnations of Venom: the Cronos-led Venom and the Mantas/Demolition Man-led Venom Inc. (sort of M-Pire of Evil re-branded). Both are legit. I saw Venom Inc. last year at a festival and they were amazing, of course spitting out all the 1981/1984 classics with utter energy. I lost my voice that evening.
So, which one is the best? From a graphical art perspective, Venom Inc.'s artwork is much better. The Storm The Gates artwork is just ridiculous. What with this smoking-dick giant stone demon shitting out small demons who climb on the high portal of heaven on the back of the CD? Fuck! If it is a parody, it is too well done for my tiny neuron. That Venom Inc. flute-blowing demon is much more sinister and engaging. Musically speaking, both are excellent, they sound very, very similar delivering the crunchy sleazy thrashy heavy rocking metal they have been famous for for the past four decades. I have a preference for Storm The Gates. I find the songs slightly more exciting and crispier (but again, Avé  is very close in style and performance). The big advantage of Storm The Gates is its more visceral, less clinical production. I have been thinking the drumming on Avé was a well-programmed computer track. I am still not sure - anyway, it sounds too clean. Storm The Gates has that raw 80s atmosphere but bigger, just perfect for these songs.
Two magnificent albums by veterans who know their public, nothing new or innovative, but who would want anything else from this team? Two fucking zeristic albums for the ancient metalosaurus! Lay down you soul twice!! I am glad they are unable to reunite as a single band, it provides us with twice as much fucking VENOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!

The Blood Divine - Awaken - 1996
The Blood Divine - Mystica - 1997

     Peaceville - CDVILE 62
02. The Blood Divine - Mystica, 1997 CD Album
     Peaceville - CDVILE 70
Too light for doom metal fans? Too heavy for goths or 70s rockers? The two magnificent albums of the short-lived The Blood Divine may have commercially suffered from lack of extremities, especially in the 90s when everything metal had to be more extreme than anything else (those who remember the Usenet forums like alt.rock-n-roll.metal.death remember the early days of keyboard duels). But on the artistic level, these minor masterpieces are rich and lively purveyors of non-traditional doom metal with a 70s non-Black Sabbath approach. The singer came from Anathema after all. The songs are gloomy but not funeral, the general atmosphere may be dark or light, but never with much joy. These are great soundtracks for winter. They rock but you are always on the verge of freezing. Majestic ruins, heavy with sadness, not losing qualities as time passes, I've always loved The Blood Divine, and I shall continue.

Zay - Cry For The Moon - 2017 01. Zay - Cry For The Moon, 2017 CD Album
     Zay-Nin Records - ZAY-NIN-001
A member of the Zerbook mentioned this album and it whetted my appetite immediately. Thanks to the Discogs market, the CD landed swiftly and enlarged the zeriverse. This is a killer release that deserves to become a little classic of the future. Zay do not reinvent the thrash, they deliver they personal take. It is as rough as sophisticated, almost progressive in some places, then super crunchy and heavy again, with explosions and blasts. You may think of Slang and Forward associated with Beyond Description and Shikabane. Some Rose Rose or Paintbox? A large spoon of each and a good ass-kicking! Extra superb crossover thrash punk full of sweetness and fury! Bang that head against the zerrific metalized japcore addiction!
