The official lyric video for the song “The Infinity Of Time And Space” from Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s new, self-titled album, which sold around 1,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. This is roughly in line with the opening-week performance of the band’s previous CD, “The Age of Nero”, which premiered with 1,700 units back in November 2008.

“Satyricon” debuted at position No. 1 on the official chart in the band’s home country — the first time one of the group’s releases has topped the chart in Norway. “Satyricon” has also seen success internationally, debuting at No. 6 in Finland, No. 23 in Germany and No. 26 in Austria. By comparison, SATYRICON‘s previous studio album, “2008′a “The Age Of Nero”, entered the chart at No. 5 in Norway and No. 73 in Germany.

Comments SATYRICON vocalist Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven: “SATYRICON fans have shown that there is still room for authentic music with an analog sound. They have shown it to the degree that it has given us formidable chart positions in very competitive European markets and in Norway a Number 1 record. It is the most important record that we have done and now our fans are clearly sending out a very strong message by getting behind it. We are very thankful and proud.”

“Satyricon” was recorded in Norway between January and May 2013 and was produced by Satyr. Mixing took place in Seattle by Adam Kasper and Satyr.

Speaking to Noisecreep at this year’s Inferno festival, Satyr stated about SATYRICON‘s new album: “To me, it sounds very authentic, it’s organic-sounding. And in this digital age where music is mostly played through computers, a lot of that analog vibe gets lost in translation when you play music through medias like that, but I still wanna do it because there’s nothing quite like it. To me, it just makes everything sound the way it’s supposed to sound — it’s dynamical; the music is alive, it’s not overly compressed, the levels are not pushed. So, musically speaking, it’s a very atmospheric record… This record is full of life. There are a lot of surprises here, but I think it’s gonna be a record that’s gonna help the black metal movement perhaps find a new way for the future.”

I have a feeling this is one of those situations where we English speakers have been lost in translation, because Fan Mans War Face quite literally makes no sense whatsoever. Perhaps some AMR readers who know German are in on the joke? Is this from some Saturday morning German cartoon that  would be absolutely hilarious to the average German? Regardless of the name’s origins, Fat Mans War Face and their EP of the same name is pretty fucking brutal, by any standard.

Instead of the shitstorm of your average *insert description here*-core band, Fat Mans War Face doesn’t seem to give two shits about what is fashionable these days, they are merely hellbent on melting more faces than any other band in history, and are more than willing to keep count. Very few bands have managed to bring together the brutality of death metal with the tribal beatdown of modern hardcore, but Fat Mans War Face has definitely found themselves in that rare circle of bands who actually get it right. This EP is unrefined, unmasked and unfiltered mayhem, essentially everything the body needs! And remember, it’s piping hot so sip it before gulping!

AntiKaroshi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The AntiKaroshi. *Sigh* Let me first start by saying that this style isn’t my cup of tea. I honestly can say that I cannot name one Indie band that I like. I find that this experimental genre to be taken in directions that rarely do any good. Indie stands for the unconventional, as does all metal, but carries a different attitude, an attitude that I personally have a distaste for. An attitude of trying so hard to be unique, the message is lost in translation and even the band cannot remember their own cause. If you were to follow my definition, then Crushed Neocons would be no exception.

Crushed Neocons have four distinct styles that are experimented with, obviously the most dominant being Indie, accompanied by an interesting or “unconventional” blend of rock, techno. I must say I admire this bold display. I found the punky vocals on the other hand, to throw things off kilter, ruining the rhythm and feel. It didn’t flow with the rest of the songs, and the words just stumbled on itself, melting into nothing and losing meaning.

However, before the vocals are belted, I can hear potential. I sense a very lovely jazz influence, along with the Indie, in the first song “Downtown,” as the bass is strum beautifully, the drums are beaten to its own melody, and the guitar is plucked to perfection. If I were to throw in a metronome, it would be followed to a tee. Even with the songs featuring techno/electronica, the constancy is prevalent and definitely one of their greatest strengths.

Although Crushed Neocons has a forgiving melody about it, that does not redeem the album in its entirety. The vocals make the music sound chunky and sloppy, and takes away from the overall feel of the album. This album was meant to represent the unconventional, but the reality is something a little different. The AntiKaroshi have managed to say away from mainstream music, but have hindered themselves by making this their main priority.

Ehh…
