It appears that Varg is poised to become a 2 time loser following an arrest yesterday in France.

Euro News reports:

Black metal musician and neo-Nazi sympathiser Kristian “Varg” Vikernes was arrested in southwestern France on Tuesday after investigators decided he might stage a large “terrorist act”, Interior Minister Manuel Valls said. The police suspect the Norwegian national of planning a “massacre” and searched his house for weapons and explosives.

We haven’t had a lot of time for Vikerenes and his pseudo-intellectual historical revisionism (the less said about his paramour the better) in the bunker. It appears that his delusions of grandeur will once again find him in the dock and that die hard fans may be waiting quite a bit longer for his Role Playing Game to come out.

Straight Edge Playlist

Posted in Playlists with tags , , , , , on July 5, 2013 by Magadh

Few would term Mags and me as overly temperate. That said, we both have great love and respect for our straight edge brothers and sisters. This respect lead me to proposition walking musical encyclopedia and all around solid dude Rob Moran for 20 of the best straight edge songs of all time. His introduction and playlist are below.

Here is the list of what I think are the best songs by various SxE bands. Now granted, I think about 5% of the people associated with these songs are probably still SxE, but who gives a shit…these are great fucking songs, they meant something to me then and they still do now. By no means is this any sort of definitive list, but rather a list of songs that stuck with me over the years.

Rob Moran

In no particular order:
  1. Inside OutNo Spiritual Surrender
  2. Minor Threat – Minor Threat
  3. Side by SideBackfire
  4. UndertowCutting Away
  5. Turning PointBroken
  6. 7 SecondsThis is the Angry
  7. Drift AgainDrag
  8. Uniform ChoiceNo Thanks
  9. JudgeFed Up
  10. Gorilla BiscuitsNew Direction
  11. SS DecontrolGet it Away
  12. SlapshotFire Walker
  13. UnityStraight on View
  14. Chain of StrengthJust How Much
  15. JudgeWarriors (Blitz Cover)
  16. Four Walls FallingHappy Face
  17. BrotherhoodThe Deal
  18. IntegrityHarder They Fall
  19. BaneCan We Start Again
  20. Dag NastyValues Here

Since Rob included Judge twice (not that we are complaining) and is such a modest chap this is my nominee for #20.

Crust/D-Beat Playlist

Posted in Playlists with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2013 by Magadh

We’ve been brewing up some weird stuff down in the bunker, but through the fumes it occurred to us that people might have an interest in what we were spinning in our long nights over the soilent vats. We’re going to try to offer up playlists on a bi-monthly basis, each with a thematic base. The theme here (as the title indicates) is a combination of crust and d-beat.  Discerning listeners will note that there are a couple of things in this list that are a bit marginal in terms of these categories, but I think they fit in terms of atmosphere. In the end, it’s up to you to decide.


1. Skitsystem, “Apokalypsens Svarta Änglar
2. Martyrdöd, “Vägen Ur
3. From Ashes Rise, “The Final Goodbye
4. Hellcrawler, “Devastation
5. Infäme, “Adeu Amarg
6. After the Bombs, “Bloody Aftermath
7. Monastery, “Mutilating
8. Passiv Dödshjalp, “Virtuella Bojor
9. Viimeinen Kolonna, “Sinä Häviät
10. Livstid, “Permafrost
11. Misantropic, “Raise the Gallows
12. G-Anx, “Victims of Our Ignorance
13. Instinto, “Dominación
14. Crude S.S., “Destroy Capitalism
15. Anti-Cimex, “Braincell Battle
16. Final Warning, “The Bunker
17. Disfear, “Misanthropic Generation
18. Warcollapse, “Timebomb State
19. Mördare, “Rivers of Diesel
20. Masakari, “Rapid Dominance
21. Kvoteringen, “Sjuk Värld
22. Discharge, “Doomsday
