When I read this article on choke sex, my first thought was: WHY has no one ever tried this with ME on a first date? Am I not chokable? And what does that even mean? It could mean swallow throated. Or ham necked. Not that I would necessarily be into it. But you could at least try.
Here is the issue with this: you have to ask first. I mean, I get it. Consent isn’t sexy. Can we please make it sexy? Someone please make a porn or R-rated film involving a truly steamy ground rules scene, okay? Consent can totally be 2014′s new millennial sex trend. Thanks.
And what good is a safe word if you can’t SAY it? Maybe instead of a word, it could be safe sign language. Here’s hoping you’re not in cuffs… (Kidding! I would never wish that on anyone.)
Right now I’m driving this car called life, and everything around is closing in on me. I feel like I need a release for these unwanted emotions. So I crank up the new DRUGS OF FAITH EP Architectural Failures that will be released on Nov. 26th via Malokul! Over the course of four songs, this band will have the ghost of our human condition knocking on your skull. CVLT Nation is ultra hyped to be streaming Architectural Failures in full below!
Interview via Jenkemmag.com
Back in 1991, former Big Brother Magazine writer Earl Parker interviewed the most disgusting rock n roll musician of all time, GG Allin. Seventeen year old Earl ran a little skateboard zine called Polyurethane Monthly out of Kansas City, and wrote back and forth with GG who was serving time in prison for assault. The interview was included in an issue of his zine, but with a super limited original print run and being stuck in Missouri, there are only a handful of people that ever got to read it. So here it is, dug out now a damn 20 years later, and available to the world wide web. We present to you the nearly unseen interview with GG Allin, “the most spectacular degenerate in rock & roll history” live from Adrian Correctional Facility:
How old are you?
It is not how old you are, but the convictions you carry.
Why are you in jail?
Felonious assault with a dangerous weapon…but what it all comes down to is the fact who I am. Our lame, boring, stagnating robot society fears the rock n’ roll mission of my wars and my realities. The war in the middle east is nothing compared to the war in my head.
Lake of Blood are back with their sophomore release entitled Omnipotens Tyrannus and it’s over 80 minutes of epic black metal. What impresses me about this tape is the level of emotion that every tune carries, and you can hear the growth in their songwriting. We are stoked to be streaming the new Lake of Blood tune “Blood & Mercy” below…After you hear the song you can buy Omnipotens Tyrannus HERE!
Heavy as FUCK! Gloomy as FUCK! Demented as FUCK! Just some of the thoughts that come to my mind as I watch the visual for the new sonic collaboration between Gnaw Their Tongues & Alkerdeel entitled “Dyodyo Asema”. This video is a perfect interpretation of what you are about to hear and see! CVLT Nation is honored to be premiering this Gnaw Their Tongues & Alkerdeel piece of visual torment. This project was put together to help celebrate the fifth anniversary of Consouling Sounds…CVLT Nation salutes the bands and the label for a job well done!…Pre-Order HERE January 13th is the release date!
When you take a look at cultures from around the world, you see more similarities than differences. Case in point – while the west has often characterized rituals that involve masks, animal and supernatural costumes as being in the realm of “tribal” peoples, it is ignoring its own tribal roots, which are alive and well in many parts of Europe today. In most of Europe, there are traditions involving elaborate costumes that celebrate pre-Christian holidays and beliefs. While in the “New World,” Christianity and Walmart have been pretty much successful at whitewashing/eradicating any mention or celebration of “pagan” traditions from mainstream society, in European countries with centuries and millennia of history to reflect on, the practices are still alive. For example, the Krampus gatherings and parades in the Austrian Alps, the Bulgarian Kukeri festivals, New Year’s Day celebrations in Poland with the Macidulas or in Germany with the Wilder Mann, or the Festival of Bears in France. All of these and more involve community participation in pre-Christian traditions celebrating Nature, the solstices and humans’ place in the cycle of life, and many of the costumes worn would be at home alongside an anthropological exploration of First Nations’ traditional costumes or those found in tribal African societies. Organized Christianity occupied the territories and destroyed the traditions of people the world over, but has twisted history to make certain people believe themselves more “civilized” than others. But these pictures are clear evidence of the commonality of the human experience, and shows that greed and thirst for power are at the root of our separation from one another.
Cemetery‘s cassette demo in 2011 was a welcome and gloomy surprise from Chicago that I first wrote about for CVLT Nation in March, 2012. Although the band have produced at least an LP’s worth of material – and are planning to release it soon, as they detail below – since the demo, and have played out on the East Coast and elsewhere, it’s hard to find info on the mysterious group. As one of the better-sounding bands that are part of the new revivalist deathrock and goth-punk movement that includes bands like Lost Tribe, The Spectres, Deathcharge, Arctic Flowers, Crimson Scarlet, Belgrado, and others, the creepy, Christian Death-sounding quartet have slowly been amassing followers due to word of mouth praise and dubbed circulation of their cassette.
I interviewed singer Danny and guitarist Desmond below to find out what bands have inspired them and what they’re currently working on.

This is a photo of my girlfriend in a hotel’s hallway in Odessa, Ukraine. We made a trip to the Ukraine three years ago and we stayed in this hotel for some nights. This was one of the hotels you can still find in Eastern Europe where the grandezza of the old days blends with the functionality and tastelessness of comunist days, resulting in a feeling which is comparable to a pre-Perestroyka movie version of ‘Shining’. We thought that a bed sheet ghost would fit perfectly to these uncanny hallways, and one night, when we were sure that all of the merciless heavyweight parlour maids had left the building, we staged this picture.
Heavy Demented Disjointed Aggressive Disturbing are some of the words that come to mind when listening to INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE. This 90′s group laid waste to many different genres of sound to create their own upper cuts of sonic filth. DIY label Foreign Sounds has just re-released their album The Newest Youth Rebellion on vinyl only. Today CVLT Nation is streaming INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE’s bombastic record in full below!
Our comrades Aborted Society Records are about to release a fucking way beyond raging album by INSIDIOUS PROCESS. Over ten songs and 30 minutes, this band will hold you captive with their onslaught of fully charged D-Beat. All of their songs have a great sense of urgency infused with an almost bluesy fury. INSIDIOUS PROCESS’s self-titled album is full of emotion that makes you realize our fight against the status quo is not over and has only begun. Every song is an anthem against those that would like to do away with progressive thought. I know that music can be used as a weapon against corruption, and INSIDIOUS PROCESS’ music is a wake up call for us all! CVLT Nation has the honor of streaming this powerful album in full below…Nuff respect to Aborted Society Records & INSIDIOUS PROCESS…Pre-Order HERE!!!
