New Paganfire shirt/Funeral Moon Clothing

So there's this new 2-sided Paganfire shirt released on Funeral Moon Clothing for 10euro's postpaid. I finally got mine after a month or two Richard was kind enough to send me another one after the Post Office lost the first one he sent, feeling pretty bad about him losing money over that, So I'll probably make it up to him one way or also came with a free copy of adrenicide - pioneers in the land of the mad.

Curtis Mayfield - Superfly

One of my most idolized important icons of the 70's is Curtis Mayfield this guy is just "cool" and "smooth" in physical form. My favorite release from him is one of his most recognized in my time, the soundtrack to the movie and also one of his studio albums "Superfly" this is too good as a stand alone-listen too album as well,great soul/funky music to chill too.  socio-political minded lyrics over soulful instrumentals. Lyrics that expresses Gritty realism and what the fuck was down in the ghetto at the time. Curtis Mayfield delivers Tr00 Soul/Funk music everytime. . . the guy continued to make music even when he was badly injured and paralyzed from the neck down. . . .

Keep on Pushin'

show updates and more.

I've been hella busy the past few weeks that I couldn't find the time to update this blog.....Still very busy on promoting the show we're setting up to the fullest, to make things worst my throat is killing me and I have a pretty bad fever... so anyways I found a "piso" printing shop near where I live and got to print about a 50 pages of small,medium,large flyers and posters that I've been handing out to people at gigs and taping to walls,posts,shops and shit. . . . so far so good, fate don't let me down now hahaha. Its a bummer that I didn't get to make it a free food event like I originally planned(was supposed to cook shit for the attendees)..

You guys can see me handing out shit at the following dates & outside venues(kinda broke ATM so I can't pay the entrance fees :(    )
. . . approach me if you wanna help spread the word or something I have lots . . . .

feb 24 obsidian bar
feb 26 headstock bar

. . . . . . .

If you run a distro/label/in a band that has some merch available I'm encouraging you guys to show up at 3/12/11 @ headstock bar to give out/sell your shit that would be too cool hehehe.. . . . 

these are the links to the flyer models in digital form,social networking site/txting promoting is  not suitable for me he he he..

On a side note Crass(anarcho punk band) is really really fucking good been playing them non-stop for about two weeks now. (SMILEY FACE)

Sedition's 1st Demo(US,Texas)

This was the first review I've ever written for something(back in 09 i think) hahahahaha, this is really a shitty non meaningful one the only thing real about it is that Sedition is a really decent demo band. But I figured I'd post this here since Rigor Mortis and Sedition live in the same state. and Bruce and Turner are pretty much best friends in the early days..

Sedition (USA)

Sedition was one of those bands from Texas in the late 80's that had so much potential but sadly it was not to be, they released their first demo under the name Talon but later changed their name to what we now know and love. 

The first thing you notice while listening to this release is the great unclouded raw bass sound supporting every song and the clearness of every instrument while retaining their rawness, something I believe is lost in modern bands nowadays. 

Their first demo as Sedition is their best and my personal favorite, its starts off with a self titled track that's just screaming awesome. Within the first seconds of heeding its call Its effect on the everyday heavy metal enthusiast will make his head bang against the wall until his neck separates from his spine paralyzing him as the songs embodiment materializes and pummels him to the ground only to make the dude beg for more. 

Its not brutal like Demolition Hammer or Dark Angel not even Teutonic like Kreator, its in the vein of unrelenting straightforward punk tinged american thrash at its best Sedition doesn't sound like any other thrash band but they are a little close to Subjugator or Gammacide. 
Sedition (USA) members (Click to see larger picture)

The vocals and riffs are catchy as STD after having sex with a 1$ hooker from the Philippines, The drumming is simplistic and really organic and the lyrical prowess of Turner Scott and his ability to shout like an anarchist madman bent on making the world a dystopic nation for all makes this band even deadlier getting his message across with simplistic lines without sugarcoating it: 

"I don't need you/you don't need me/ but we all hate their society" 

To finish up this hazily written demo review the three remaining tracks are all very well written and executed as if the band were seasoned veterans in all things astonishing in thrash metal. I honestly can't believe such bands remained demo level for so long, Sedition is a group that makes demo hunting for obscure old school bands all worthwhile.

                                                         SEDITION DEMO

click the link above to DL Sedition's first kickass contribution to the large world of thrash metal, courtesy of lockjaw-yappy blogspot. very awesome.

Rigor Mortis Demo(Not to be confused w/ Rigor Mortis that later became Immolation)

I'm falling behind with uploading/promoting local and foreign underground releases which was my main objective, I've got some Karimlan,Storm Troopers,Rush IxDx,Throw,Tinner,Dawn,Prellude,Anihilated,Storming Steels,War All The Time,Psychosis,Half The Battle stuffs to go up once my timing is good and the neighbor's wi-fi is up, still waiting.....(only way to upload fast and 100%).

Anyways for now this b-movie horror/gore inspired classic demo will do.

1. Reanimator (3:40)
2. Slow Death (6:07)
3. Die in Pain (4:07)
4. Foaming at the Mouth (3:56)
5. Condemned to Hell (2:06)
6. Six Feet Under (5:53) 

7. The Troll (4:08)
This is what I've been listening to repeatedly for the past few weeks, this and maybe Motorhead.
I've been hounding at Bruce Corbitt(Vocalist) of this old school classic 80's thrash band to hand over his copy of this demo hahaha, of course I was only joking when sending him messages about it, but in truth I was DEAD serious.

 What we have here is something that will only happen if you have a bunch of young gory b-movie horror fanatics watching movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Re-Animator on a daily basis that have a wild imagination. being high on weed and drunk on beer at the same time and getting their ideas on paper,writing some ripping fast riffs,practicing on their brothers drum set endlessly and just fucking playing for passion while being brutal,stupid and fun(read Brutal not br00htal) at the same time.

In my opinion this is the best release in the whole Rigor Mortis discography albeit a short one,production raw and flawless at the same time. I can't find one thing to bitch about and that's pretty rare for a demo. the vocals of Bruce Corbitt ranges from clean,shouted, to high pitched shrieks and frantic harsh screams that sounds soo eargasmic and something I always aspired and try to do. Mike Scaccia's playing is just fast as hell and impressively tight it really makes the songs with its high speed tremolo picking and face ripping qualities. 7 tracks of just solidly head-bangingly great no-gimmick thrashing metal(other would say R.M. is Death Thrash but well haha, we all have our own opinions.)

I've played this release 21 times(and counting) according to my notepad(which I use to mark how many times I sit through a release one time for each "X") It just can't be compared to any other demo released in 86! fogeddaboudit!

Others would punch me in the face when I say the demo is better than the full length but that's just a testament to my quirkiness...its just a lot of stuff changed when the full length was done and I can't adjust to it cause alot of their shit changed come full length.(production,vocal delivery & phrasing,speed, musical execution, drum approach etc.)

Hahaha, this is a pretty long and senseless fanboy rant........just listen to it! and be pummeled to the ground by the bloody fierce force of Rigor Mortis!

He! Has! Conquered Brain Death! Welcome back to life!

Click the link above for the awesome demo courtesy of the awesomest old school metal blog around Lock Jaw-Yappy (knew I couldn't go thru a post without using the word "awesome") 

I'm even thinking of getting this tattoed somewhere on my arm.......really really down on getting it done.

Demorgan Human Incapacity

So this is my ex-bands first full length pro-pressed effort out on CD. I told them time and time again to give out free demo CD-rs first to build up notoriety but they didn't have none of it hahaha. 8 tracks of Thrash Metal influenced, Melodic Death Metal, I can't really get into it since Its soooo cheesy listening to some of the tracks I helped write lyrically(1 & 2 respectively mostly 2 hahaha) but its really good, production is too polished and pro,it easily beats the quality of most modern metal bands(exclude thrash,dm and BM ones okay? its supposed to sound like that ;) )  local releases as it really sounds professional which is mindfucking considering this was mixed,recorded and mastered at Mig's room. again can't discuss it in depth...

Demorgan is:
Miguel Querubin - Vocals/Rhythm/Bass
Raphael Del Prado - Lead
and an unamed Drum software that doesn't sound synthetic at all! they should name it "Echo"! hahaha you see what I did there? damn..(it was a reference to Echo and The Bunnymen btw)

For fans of
Metallica,Bodom,At The Gates,Blood Tsunami etc.

If you're interested on what it sounds like just buy it from me,raphael or miguel when you see us at the shows they'll start going to shows normally now to promote it!
or drop me a line at the fartbox on the left.

 the damage is 200buxx. They don't accept trades, I don't know why though trading is really really fun! kinda like circle pits.......and liempo........mang tomas..........mmmmmmmmh. but seriously they need to sell some first to reimburse their expenses before trading some of the stuff away.

this is not for you if you despise modern production kinda like how gary holt produced that new Warbringer one. but if not! this is a real local gem.

I'm really not feeling the creative juices flowing writing this article so I'll shut up now hahaha.

Hard Hittin Doubles 2/2/2011

Nice, I finally am 100% sure I can attend this gig today what a sick kick-ass line up TTT for the win! I never get tired of watching them, I remember back then when I first got into underground music the only reason I go to hardcore gigs was to watch em'. now every band I hear seems to be killer hahaha. I haven't heard of Bloodshed Remains yet though, I try not to when touring bands visit here. It adds more to the mystic and anticipation and stuff...

Bridging Scenes, One show at a time. Metal, Punk and Hardcore gig In one.

An idea of mine that has been plaguing me for about 2 years now( I always dreamed of setting up a show) has finally been put into action. I'm gonna collaborate with Hellmet Productions to deliver you guys a thrashing cool show! the wheels have already been put in motion and very soon we're gonna have a date and venue set in stone!

 The gig is gonna be around march twelve at Headstock Bar. I made a promise to myself to only try to put up shows when I have a cause I believe in,so this time its "Bridging the gaps between extreme music scenes and encouraging attendees and bands to communicate with each other regardless of musical tastes, or just fuck discrimination will do.".

 We all go/play in one small circuit anyway, why not get to know everybody and start rolling in with the good vibes!

I will also cook(or bring) free food for attendees and bands to eat like what our hindu/hare krishna brothers do at some of their shows.

I'm hoping that everyone can stop smoking fucking cancer sticks for the duration of the show though...

Bridging Scenes I (B.S.! hahaha.)

This is a split bill, I got to pick the metal bands and sir Koi picked the punk and hardcore ones + The Anti I fuckin fully agree with his picks all killerrrrrrr bands! tame the tikbalang!!!

This is the official bill, getting one whole bill of quality bands to be down to play on one date is hard as hell!!! still lacking 1 band as I haven't snail mailed Edward of Corrupt Insanity about it yet..

Side Punk

Side HxCx
Off The Chain
The Crimson Cartel
Tame The Tikbalang

Side Metal
Mass Hypnosia
Mass Defect
The Anti
Traces of War

If only I could get Rush IxDx and Execution of Terror on the show too eh? they kick major ass!!!!

 We agreed that 10-12 bands is the max so that the quality of the event and the bands time on stage won't be compromised. ika nga nila hehehe quality not quantity.

So back to what I was talking about! hahaha........

 if you believe in the cause or wanna see a rad diverse set of cool bands, drop by an' lets just relax spread good cheer all around and maybe do some circle pits! hahaha...

P.S. These series of events will never turn into a weekly business venture for me. My actions are driven by passion and my love for music,nothing else. I don't aspire to break even or gain profit for setting up a show but if everybody showed up and had fun, that would be payment enough for me. Thanks for reading this and I hope you have a good day ahead! Thrashcooooooreeeeeeeeeeespeedcrustmetalpunxxx.

Midnight - Complete and Total Fucking Midnight

Jamie Walters A.K.A. Athenar
Filey The Kid
Count Zigar
(20 tracks of perfect speed metal rock and roll crossover)

Midnight-Complete and total fucking midnight                     NWN! PRODUCTIONs.
I fucking recommend this re-release to anybody who likes extreme music of anykind, it’s a masterpiece if there are any. Athenars Midnight plays Filthy and Raw Rock n’Roll fueled, punk injected Speed Metal from hell ala venom y motorhead combination. the drums are d-beat punk sounding, simple rock n roll/speed metal riffs attacks your ear. overall natural dirty sounding production with black metal and glam themes combined the vocals sound like to me, a cross between Lemmy and Cronos(again haha) but others say Jamie mixes a little Quorthon in as well.

 bathing in sleazy perverted thoughts and over-exaggerated anti-christian themes..Very very fun shit to listen to!all killer no filler is the best phrase to sum up the quality of this one Production changes throughout the record since this is a compilation some tracks has a big problem with tone thinness but that won’t get in the way of enjoying the music. This is not for you if you can’t appreciate simplistic music and more than raw production.


Lucifer D. Larynx and the Satanic Grind Dogs of Death

I got in contact with this sic outfit thru a forum, and this guy I talked to(Pat) sent me their band’s early releases,  He also plays for a thrash band called Head on Collision. The band started out as a basement project hailing from St. Louis Missouri making some really cool  grind music that got a following in their local scene and it was also this band(along with repulsion)that made me interested in grind( I wanted to know what the fuck it was about LOL) I absolutely know nothing about grind so I can't really explain what the fuck is it I'm listening too I just find it pleasurable to my ears.

Bio: Lucifer D. Larynx And The Satanic Grind Dogs Of Death started in the mid 90's when all the original grindcore kings were broken up or wimping out. We did it out of our own desire to hear the shit we wanted to hear. There were 2 demos, "More Evil Than Your Fat Naked Mother" (1997) and "Sex, Drugs, Booze, Grind" (1998), a few compilation appearances, as well as the "Wrong Side of the Tracks" 4 way split 7 Inch with Dahmer, The Kill and Needful Things. They  also have had their Sex, Drugs, Booze, Grind! Demo + other tracks re-released  by  Must Play Fast in the past on 7” Pat also told me that they have lots of unreleased material . so just click on the link and find out what LDL & TSGDOD is all about!
 So you fuckin distro’s and indie recs, get in touch if ya like what ya hear and  Support!

Genre: Grindcore
old Carcass, old Napalm Death, E.N.T., Haemorrhage, Regurgitate, Discharge, Filthy Christians, Dead Infection, Exit-13, Brutal Truth, Squash Bowels, Dahmer, Excruciating Terror, S.C.D., Defecation, O.L.D., Repulsion, Agathocles, Wadge, Despise You, Warsore, S.O.B., Sore Throat, Mortician, Terrorizer, A.C., V.J., Porn, Beer, Gore flicks..

Happy mellow vibes to all! and don't bogart your shit eh!? sharing=caring=win! hahahaha..

Metalucifer/Sabbat Bolivian Demonslaught CD Re-Issue


(Gezol,vocalist of Sabbat & Metalucifer)

Genre: Heavy/Speed

This is a very killer CD re-release of an interesting split from rawblackvlt of Sabbat(Jpn)and Metalucifer both having the mighty warrior Gezol as vocalist and edition(300) double cd comes with a unique layout and weird paper first time I’ve seen something like it, I even damaged the inlay due to ignorance fuck..

 Metaluciferian side delivers 12 tracks from different releases + some bonus ones of pure traditional 80s heavy/speed/N.W.O.B.H.M. sounding metal with unique vocals sung in Japanese with occasional kamikaze Engrish that made me laugh at first but after a while you’re singing along to it and head-banging repeatedly, clever strategy even if not intentional ha ha,one of the best heavy metal bands from japan in it for the true pure metal spirit with song titles such as Heavy Metal Hunter, Heavy metal Warriors Heavy metal Samurai and Heavy Metal Drill hahaha.. you can’t go wrong with this one, for fans of angel witch,saxon,early maiden accept etc this is a whole new level beyond “SUPRA” ideal soundtrack to super robot series when the protagonist finally finishes off the enemy,hahaha..

(Bad taste in clothes, haha.)

the Sabbatical side consists of some tracks from their
 post-fetishism stuff with the exception of Mion’s Hill. This isn’t in the same league as the black/thrash Sabbat I prefer as it is more closer to the traditional speed/thrash sound not really a fan although I have a huge amount of respect for their work ethics releasing 4 albums in the span of 4 years and countless live albums,ep’s,splits and additional LP’s that followed soon after..

Execution Of Terror - Sampler

Fuck I've only seen these guys live 2 times, once when I was FUBAR by drink and brownies at the Flower Grave collective gig(Arah X Kiri farewell party)then again at the D.I.Y. Pinoy hardcore punk forum's anniversary gig where I was too fucked up to even take pictures of them again...tsk tsk.

They play raw d-beat crust as fuck music and would appeal to some of you fucking thrashers viewing this piece of shit blog that worship the metal-punk Toxic Holocaust or War Ripper sound! Their live performance is awesome and I can't wait to see them again...I took some pictures when I went to see them last but I was too baked to even point the camera properly. damn. so much for documenting shit.

(AAARGHHHH Stupid fucking camera shots!!!)
(!!)!!)@#!@#@!#!@#@!#@#! Don't know why I was pointing there!)

nick da dick - vocals
ekwa-rd - guitars

Colossus. . .And The Rift of The Pan-Dimensional Undergods

Sean Buchanan - Vocals

Andy Lewis - Guitar
Bill Fisher - Guitar
Nicky Nixon - Guitar
Rylan Wilshire - Bass
Doza Mendoza - Drums

Don't let the funny looking guys fool you, they play music like no other in this modern age of ours borrowing power from olden gods of heavy metal Iron Maiden complete with double guitar harmonies and three guitarists other notable influence is NWOBHM legends Angel Witch. I am really glad that Killer Metal Records(germany) had decided to re-issue this gem originally released in the US. 9 fine cuts of guitar driven,story telling,epic heavy metal and 2 instrumentals. lyrical themes range from the humorous "Ghost Fucker", to fantasy(Hoc-Tel,Limit Break) to great nods and tribute to films & books( The Day The Earth Stood Still, Mad Max, Willow, Ben-Hur,Salamandastron)

You really can't go wrong with this band the only problem I see with this one is that their lyrics were never released and if you can not understand the stories it might get in the way of you enjoying the band, when I contacted them about it they told me that Sean(vocalist) keeps it only inside his head when he writes, so they told me if I can write all the lyrics down without making that much mistakes and send it to em I get a free shirt but I did not hear back from them hahaha.

Anyways. go check it out! fuckin awesome throwback.

Infernal Curse(Argentina) Live In Manila Gig Review

Got to the venue a little early(6:30) must've been one of the first 20 people there,bought some cd's n zine's they had for sale. drank with komrades outside for what seemed like forever. 

(First bottle +10 to drunkedness)
Alternating from alkoholiks outside to sharing shots with familiar faces indoors.I didn't need to get in line
(this is the first time I've seen a line outside an underground gig! such a mindfuck)
(Edward bassist and vox for Corrupt Insanity)
 to get inside since I was one of the few firsts to get to the venue, The first band to grace the stage with their performance was Valenzuela City based thrashers Corrupt Insanity(already featured in this blog just find it). Opening with their perfect rendition of Slayer's War Ensemble following it up with originals including Human Mania & Deadline(i think) completing their U.S. influenced thrashin' set with Raining Blood.(instrumental) 

Edward(vox/bass) urging the crowd to take the mic and sing. After that I went outside to chug down a few more bottles of beer acquired from random heddbangers and a couple of shots of some weird concoction from Baguio locals I just met that tasted like sweet vinegar that makes you intoxicated...

Raw Primitive two-piece black metal unit Karimlan were to go up next 
(BM horde Karimlan)
so I just waited to hear some shit coming from inside before severing an interesting conversation I had with one of the dudes outside. As usual they delivered a mighty set in the vein of darkthrone-ish stuff invoking strong emotions of hatred with each song made better by being backed up by a much superior sound system than when I last saw them(late last year I think). I spoke to the guys when they finished the set and bought Karimlan CD-rs off em' they offered to let me pay in beer but I refused.

It was my first time to hear Demonic but I have chugged alcohol with some of their members before,they unleashed a good but somewhat unrefined set of supposedly evil death metal, sealing the deal vomiting up an excellent cover of a Nunslaughter song fuckin good job!
(Erwin,Bassist cum Vocalist for the night for demonic)
Mass Hypnosia!!!!! Well we all know how awesome M.H.'s live sets are
(Karl Rosales performing Mass Hypnosis)

they played Stench of Cremation,Warface,,Fascist,Attempt To Assassinate,Traumatic Violence, Denial of Life and other songs that I must've forgotten. T'was so fuckin awesome that I almost forgot to take pictures of em. to me their unique brand of death thrash is aces! that repetitive bass line from Traumatic Violence is sooo damn catchy and cool it was almost worth the entire trip from LPC to Pasig an' back.

(Vro of Paganfire)
After M.H. was Paganfire a band I always look forward to seeing as they only play a few times a year and they were one of the main reasons I went to the event in the first place, as always they did not fail to deliver, it was a shorter set than usual though. They thrashed out fuckin killer whiplash causing tunes to punch faces too such as Terminator,Obscure Syndrome and Durugin at kayo'y Sumpain (...nang Apoy ng Kamunduhan) I think....anyways the only thing I remember of the Pagan set was me singing along to Terminator and being driven to madness by their teutonic influenced, alcohol chugging anthems of hate fueled by passion for their craft! 

                         BANG YOUR HEADS MGA PUTANGINA NIYO! 

after Paganfire I kinda just drank with friends,acquaintances,familiar faces and randoms and did stuff outside I don't want to write about here.

 got back inside and witnessed Stephanie the cute drummer of Infernal Curse pounding at it gracefully and with such finesse.

 and Eric smashing and throwing shit.. they only played three to four something songs, and walked out due to the fucked up sound problem they were having, throwing the mic stand and smashing his borrowed guitar to the ground damaging the finish at the edge.

Infernal Curse's set was not the greatest of experiences but an educational one....Its such a mindfuck that the event did not go well as planned technical difficulties and all but still this beats the shit out of any gig I attended last year(sans M.H. album launch) ANK continues to outdo themselves as each gig pass,there is something about their gatherings that makes it enjoyable,laid back, fun and energetic even for an A.D.D. fuck up like me, the minor setbacks that have occurred did not get in the way of thrash maniacs to enjoy the kick-ass show and bang their heads and chug down beer and liquor to their hearts content!!

to end on a good note, everybody that went must've had a good time sore necks,hangovers,stuff added to their collections and all.. this event is 100% excellent!

I also missed some noteworthy and exceptional bands such as Tenebrion

and the mighty one man band Slaughter Messiah with session musicians that I regret on missing due to being totally wasted and toking outside with some dudes! fuck it there will be another time where our infernal paths will cross again...


On another good note I scoured some thrash and death metal shit and zines from local maniacs and Stephanie of Infernal Curse.

CONTACT INFO'S SOON TO FOLLOW AND WILL BE SEEN AT THE SPACE BELOW, they only gave me their cellphone numbers.
