Black Metal Banchan – Part 666 (Huqueymsaw + Infernal Korean Ramyeon + Demonic Korean Horror Movies)!!

Being a fucking white male living in South Korea, life for me is pretty good and easy here.  However, I am well aware that this isn’t true for the vast majority of the native population…in fact, unfortunately societal problems such as mental illness / suicide, alcoholism, an overabundance of bizarre religious cults, mandatory military service (for…

The State of Metal 2016: Judge Dredd’s Dreaded Top 10

Phew, 2016! I mean, right?! Listen, bad shit happens all of the time, every year. I think people are making a bigger deal about 2016 than is really necessary or justified. Some people really just like posting on Facebook when celebrities die or when shitheads get elected to be leaders because they (the FB posters)…


Dungeon Synth Explorations – Part 6 – Thangorodrim

As I’ve stated in other posts, when it comes to neo-dungeon synth, it basically boils down to two schools: the more “traditional”, old-school approach that mimics the classics (Mortiis, Wongraven, Graveland intros/outros, etc.), and the more “experimental” stuff which still seems to fit into the genre but strays from the traditional style.   While I’d…


Malicious Intent – October 30

Can you feel the terror as Halloween looms ever closer?  Vampires lurk in the shadows.  Phantoms await behind every corner to steal your soul. However, because I’m writing this on November 11, we now all know that that REAL horror wasn’t Halloween, but Donald Trump taking over.  They should just change the date of Halloween…


Malicious Intent – October 16, 2016

As Halloween looms ever closer, CJ and Judge Dredd bring the “Chill Chaos” in an episode that is especially doom-and-gloom-esque in honor of the impending Samhain celebration (or “HALLOWEEN” if you’re not a complete dork) and includes mind-bending black metal, heart-stopping death metal, and soul-crushing doom metal!!  This is definitely a show that perfectly encapsulates…


Malicious Intent – October 9, 2016

Everyone knows that election season in America is always a shitshow, but this year especially seems to take the fucking cake.   For this week’s episode, CJ and Judge Dredd provide a wonderful soundtrack to the insanity with an equally nutty playlist that vacillates wildly between genres, from frantic mathcore, to black metal, to djent, to…


Malicious Intent – October 2, 2016

The studio FINALLY fixed the fucking microphones!!  Huzzah!! Anyway, on this episode of MI, CJ and Judge Dredd are both in an especially goofy mood.  Also, although they may have been busy being extreme metal scholarly types and grading papers and shit, you know that they’ll always take the time to bring you a killer…


Malicious Intent – September 25, 2016

Judge Dredd and CJ seem to be in a depressing, bleak (albeit still goofy, of course) mood for this show as they bring the “chill chaos” (the show’s new tagline btw) for this week’s episode.  Lots of sludge, experimental black metal, and just a general sense of hopelessness that I’m sure you’ll find to be…


Malicious Intent – September 19, 2016

Judge Dredd and CJ are both in a misanthropic, black metal mood for this episode of Malicious Intent.  Is it because of the United States’ current political climate?  The death of a loved one?  Perhaps Judge Dredd forgot to wear pants (AGAIN) to the studio?  While the latter may or may not be true, the…
