Peter Stokkebye – Amsterdam Shag
Death Metal Underground
by Brett Stevens
1d ago
Pipe tobacco emerges from a weird uneven topography much like death metal. There are niche blending houses, big ones, and a few outliers that make no sense but delight those who resonate to their outlook. Today we look at one of the big blending houses and one of its exceptional products. If you think of every product in our society as the result of people seeking to advance their own careers at jobs by standing out from the rest, the world of tobacco blending starts to make sense. The randomness we see often comes from those attempts. Some however are legacy tobaccos, meaning those that come ..read more

Death Official Merchandise Acknowledges Soft Pink Side of Chuck Schuldiner
Death Metal Underground
by Brett Stevens
1w ago
As if to acknowledge that Chuck Schuldiner died of AIDS on Valentine’s Day, the official merchandisers for Death have introduced a new line of Death merchandise featuring pink and kittens. Longtime observers note that this is a case of a brand paying too much attention to a niche audience, namely Redditors, who are hipsters and therefore contrarians, and contrarians like doing whatever does not work in order to prove how important and independent of reality they are. After all, “cool” in the antihero sense has always meant a detachment from reality and an impassive staredown of the consequenc ..read more

Varg Vikernes Releases Second Volume of Burzum Saga My Childhood Story
Death Metal Underground
by Brett Stevens
2w ago
As predicted, Mr Vikernes returns with another segment of the saga of his introduction to metal and his unique take on the genre that became one of the pillars of black metal, which increasingly looks like the last interesting thing to come out of music. Where his first volume shows us a teenage Varg encountering metal, figuring out that Euronymous was a Communist and pulling the first black metal Sát Cộng mission, and then getting railed by a justice system that wants to slam him and Anders Breivik into the memory hole, this book promises to focus on the early years that shaped Varg the inte ..read more

Sacrilege – Beyond the Realms of Madness (1985)
Death Metal Underground
by Brett Stevens
3w ago
Coming from the years of reckless ferment as metal and punk attempted to position themselves to get beyond the rock-revival of the NWOBHM years, Sacrilege incorporate thrash — the real thing, a punk/metal hybrid, not speed metal — into their Motörhead- and Discharge-inspired driving punk rock. As can be immediately heard, this sounds a lot like an early take on the first Bolt Thrower album, In Battle There is No Law, and uses many of the same tropes including the drubbing percussion of Motörhead that Discharge turned into the d-beat style, but also shows similarities in riff pattern. It gets ..read more

To Hell and Back Again: My Black Metal Story (Norway 1991-1993) by Varg Vikernes 150 pages, Ancestral Cult Productions, $13 This short book serves as a teaser for a longer work, since most Burzum fans want to know the origins of the events described here.

Vikernes seems to be a natural writer, with good rhythm to his sentences and an innate ability to know how much detail to give in most scenes, avoiding the twin entropy tipping points ..read more

United States of Insanity (2021)
Death Metal Underground
by Brett Stevens
1M ago
Ostensibly this movie fights the doomed free speech fight against the FBI categorizing fans of rap-rock group Insane Clown Posse (ICP), known as “Juggalos,” as members of a gang; more accurately, it looks into the ICP phenomenon and why it appeals to the growing group of dispossessed in America. Rap-rock, a kissing cousin to nu-metal but with more Motown and alternative rock, may not be your favorite genre, but anyone can appreciate the simple appeal of ICP: like Jesus Christ, they undertook the hatred of the world to be its scapegoat and in doing so, made it OK to be weird and poor. Essentia ..read more

Massacra 2.0
Death Metal Underground
by Brett Stevens
1M ago
Times are tough, and tobacco prices are going up, so again people turn to the idea of making homebrews because depending on what you need, these can be mostly as good as the commercial versions for often half of the cost. Some years ago, my blending habits commanded a personal blend that hybridized the classic American Burley blends with the UK plugs. The result was Massacra, a tasty Burley blend for those who like Haunted Bookshop and Old Joe Krantz, but it was not quite there yet. The secret of its successor, “Massacra 2.0,” can be shared easily: it uses the percentages of dark fired Kentuc ..read more
