Check out this very rare documentary The Power Of The Witch from 1971. This film was only aired once and not very much is known about it. This an interesting look at the British occult world during the 70′s.
It’s fucking ON! New music from HIGH ON FIRE, plus it’s in the form of a demented visual for their new song “Slave the Hive”. These metal hellions are now on tour with our comrades in doom Windhand and Norwegian heavy mongers Kvelertak, so make sure to catch them on the road! In the meantime, get ballistic with HIGH ON FIRE – dive right into “Slave the Hive”!
Do books and movies make you want to do things like razor-slash shoplifters and axe your landlord’s daughter? In Dario Argento’s Tenebre, Peter Neal’s books inspire a violent killing spree. Well. I once knew a guy who torched a church because of black metal. So the answer is: YES.
Have you ever lusted for hot, bloody summer camp sex (no bra) because of Sleepaway Camp? Have you ever wanted to try prostitution because it looked so glam on Elisabeth Shue? It can be as simple as wishing you were shipwrecked in the Blue Lagoon with your naked crush. Or as tragic as being with a guy because he reminds you of Sid Vicious (and maybe even wishing he will stab you one day).
Media inspires us. And if it doesn’t inspire you, you are probably really boring and not bangable. But guess WHAT? Inspiration is everywhere. Like in the News. How many of you are totally inspired to write a steamy coke sex fan fic about Rob Ford?
Now this is just unreal: NEUROSIS killing shit in Denver and the year was 1990. Looking at this, you realize why this band has lasted so long, because to this day they have held on to their punk roots. Watching NEUROSIS do their thing back then is still inspiring right now and it makes me really happy to be a part of this movement called PUNK! No Stage, No Pro Lights…just NEUROSIS all the way live…Go here for their upcoming tour dates!
The mighty BESTA is back and from what I can hear they have their rage turned up 666%! Now check out their new video entitled “Eles Vivem” – it’s 1:34 of pure sonic ANGER!
Are we BAPTISTS fans at CVLT Nation? HEll fucking YES and so should you be! They released one of the sickest records of 2013 with Bushcraft, out now on Southern Lord. Seeing them live is a mammoth shot of rawness to your whole being, because BAPTISTS bring it every time they hit the stage! Earlier this year, they performed on Seattle’s KEXP show “Seek & Destroy” and now you can view it here on CVLT Nation. I’ve got to say, if I had a list for a band that everyone should hear, BAPTISTS would be in the top 5, they are that fucking good!
As an undisputed master of cinema, Akira Kurosawa wasn’t the kind of guy who you imagined would fuck around. As such, in 1957 he decided to take on a work by an author who ranks among the upper echelons of literary and cultural significance by British standards. Shakespeare’s Macbeth is one of the darkest plays the Bard ever wrote and Throne of Blood is what would happen if you took the story and set it in feudal Japan instead of the Middle Ages of Scotland. Cultural, geographical and era-specific differences aside, both the original play and Kurosawa’s film prove that the elements of the story transcend petty boundaries and reinforce that a thirst for power is a human trait, regardless of when or where it occurs.
Today I received a really cool video from MicHell of MONARCH for their upcoming Euro tour! I feel really lucky, because I have heard two demos from their not yet released album and I can tell you it’s very monolithic! Now check out this rad visual and make sure to go see them on tour!
