FRONTSCHWEIN NORTH AMERICA PART 2: Marduk | Incantation | Abysmal Dawn | Stonehaven


Malicious Intent – April 23, 2017

  Although the end of their reign is fast approaching, they’re not finished yet!  In this episode, CJ and Judge Dredd continue to proclaim the blasphemic gospel of Chill Chaos, but soon enough usurper Gorn arrives to crash the party and deliver his own set of mayhem and brutality (yeah, it’s pretty much the same…


Malicious Intent – April 9, 2017

Oh shit, it’s been awhile!  What the hell has been going on??  Well, unfortunately, EVERYONE (including me) has been extremely busy with wrapping up final projects for graduation and/or working full-time jobs, so shit’s been pretty nutty around here for the past couple of months.  However, there is finally light visible at the end of…


Malicious Intent – February 26, 2017

Once again, the MI DJs are MIA 🙁 Just look at the empty KJHK studio.  So sad and lonely 🙁 The phones are probably ringing off the hook with requests (as usual), and there’s no one there to answer them. Luckily though, they still didn’t fail to deliver the goods, because as you can see…


Malicious Intent – January 29, 2017

That’s right, it’s time for your weekly installment of MALICIOUS INTENT!!  Unfortunately, both CJ AND Judge Dredd were absent for this show because they were at the Alcest show (can’t blame ’em!), so unfortunately this episode was pre-recorded and played by an anonymous substitute DJ or a computer.  So, yeah, you know what that means…no…


WULF’S TOP 10 OF 2016!!!

Not to beat a dead horse, but 2016 was a motherfucker of a year.   I’m not really in the mood to do a recap of all the shitty things (and good things, too, of course!) that happened this year, but I would say that it was probably one of the most chaotic years of…


2016 DUNGEON SYNTH AWARDS

Orcs and hobgoblins, ice dragons and wood nymphs, heed my call!!  Our obscure digital dungeon has been chosen to exclusively host the results of the 2016 Dungeon Synth Awards, as voted upon and organized by Facebook’s Dungeon Synth community!!  Below we have the top 3 best albums and best physical releases (as voted upon by…


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 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…


Malicious Intent – September 4, 2016

  Yeah!!  It’s party time up at the studio for this episode of Malicious Intent!!  Judge Dredd may be flying solo for this week, but he still brings the fun with some badass party metal hymns!! A lot of this music brings back memories of my college days during my early/mid-20s when I lived with the Commissar…


Dungeon Synth Explorations – Part 5 – Grimrik

Those of you who have delved with me into the mysterious musical phenomenon of dungeon synth (DS) should be familiar with Grimrik.  His list of accomplishments since entering the current DS scene a few years ago is already impressive:…


Malicious Intent – April 24, 2016

For this episode of MI, while it’s unclear if CJ was actually at this show or not (seriously, no one can remember if he was there.  They probably drank too much DMT-laced Four Loko (the official MI party beverage of choice) AGAIN…c’mon guys! Get it together!) Judge Dredd (at least) is joined by none other…


Black Metal Banchan – Part 4 – Filipino Addition (Deiphago + Pinoy Snacks + Feng Shui)!!

For this round of the Black Metal Banchan, we’re going to take a brief detour to Southeast Asia, wherein floats a collection of islands renowned for their relaxing beaches, beautiful women, and, of course, extremely violent political scene.   Yep, you guessed it!!  The Philippines!  First, we’re going to explore the delightful music of a…


Malicious Intent – March 13, 2016

CJ flies solo this week as Judge Dredd is mysteriously absent…  Without his co-pilot in the Turd Office, will CJ be able to handle doing an ENTIRE show by himself??  How will he cope with the crushing loneliness as it slowly envelops his soul??  Listen below to find out if our boy makes it through…


Phantoms of the Orient: An Evening with Vhan of Aek Gwi!!

I don’t think I’ve seen the sun in days.   Maybe weeks.   This has actually been a pretty warm December so far here in a land known for its relatively cold winters.   It’s already the middle of December, and so far it’s just been kind of cold and wet outside (except for a…


Black Metal Banchan – Part 2: Oathean + Doritos

For Round 2 of the Black Metal Banchan (if you don’t know what banchan is, here’s the Wikipedia link for it you lazy fuck 😀).   Anyway, I chose this name for the series because it’s fairly similar to, say, the classy smorgasbord (Sweden), the potpourri (France), or even the all-you-eat Chinese buffet of gluttony…


Black Metal of the Emerald Triangle: An Interview With Lycanthromancer and Skorpius of Miasmic!!

ASIA METALHEAD

When it comes to metal or extreme music, living in South Korea can be extremely frustrating.   It’s obvious that there are enough bands and fans here to make a halfway decent “scene”, so why is it that the turnout at most of these shows is always a little disappointing?…


Terra Australis Merch + Nature Is Metal

Whoa!!  They had offered to send me some stuff, but I had no idea that they would actually follow through!!  Thank you so much to Terra Australis for hooking up Malicious Intent with these CDs and patches!!  Can’t wait to check them out (and of course give them to some friends who think they can…

Dungeon Synth Explorations – Part 3 – Deivlforst Records

  You can read Part 1 of the series here, and Part 2 here. For this part of the series, instead of exploring the works of one particular artist, I’d like to look at a group of artists that make up a black metal / dungeon synth collective that are also the brains behind Germany’s…


Dungeon Synth Explorations – Part 2 – Lord Lovidicus

 I feel like it wouldn’t be appropriate to write a piece about Erang without talking about his American counterpart, Lord Lovidicus!   Apparently, the dude behind Lord Lovidicus is a mysterious fellow known simply as…Crow. Crow (who hails from the forsaken mountains of Idaho) also has another project called Jotun, but that’s not really dungeon…

Interview with Kwon Yong-man of Christfuck!!


Seasons in the Abyss

    Well, another autumn seems to be abruptly coming to an end. Autumn always makes me feel reflective and a bit nostalgic, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. For some reason, during this autumn in particular, I happened to listen to a lot of albums and bands that remind me of specific…


The Land of the Morning Grim

It’s actually not too cold out right now, but it looks relatively grim outside as I type this from my office in Daejeon, South Korea. It’s overcast, rainy, and overall just pretty miserable-looking(kind of how I imagine London to be all year ha), so what better time to make a quick MI update? Since I’ve…


WULF’S TOP 10 METAL ALBUMS OF 2012 EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!

This has been one hell of a year!! While most of it was spent working in Sydney, Australia (and exploring its seedy underbelly of thrash, doom, and black metal via some killer metal fests such as Evil Invaders IV and The Devil’s Arcana), as of this writing I am now back home in the forsaken…


Interview with Wizard of Accursed Wound!!


Album Review: “Becoming” – Abigail Williams

I don’t know what the deal is with me wanting to defend shit that no one likes. I already white-knighted Liturgy in an earlier post on here, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I really like Celtic Frost’s notoriously shitty “Cold Lake” (“Seduce Me Tonight” fucking rules) and brain-dead guttural slam (Cephalotripsy, Devourment, Cemetery…


WULF’S TOP 10 METAL ALBUMS OF 2011!!!

Well, well, here we are again!! 2011 was a hell of a year, went to Korea, living in Australia now, and, most importantly, enjoyed some killer metal releases during my travels! I really don’t have too much to say about 2011 that wasn’t already covered by Judge Dredd, he pretty much nailed it with this…


“Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm” – Inquisition: The Best Album of 2010

I’ve been meaning to write about Inquisition‘s latest album “Omininous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm” for quite some time now, but after seeing this album pop up all over metal critics’ “Best of 2011” lists within the past couple of weeks, I feel like now is the perfect time for me to weigh in…


In Defense of Liturgy

Obviously, I’m sticking myself out here for tons of ridicule by white knighting for notorious post-BM upstarts Liturgy, but before I stick up for these guys I’d like to catch everyone up on all the basic drama via some embedded videos and links because I’m lazy: The Video That Started It All: HHH’s Manifesto (most…


Interview with Serpent Est of Kaiserreich!!

E-mail interview conducted June, 2011. http://www.kaiserreich.it http://www.myspace.com/kaiserreichofficialpage WULF: Congratulations on successfully executing a great work of black metal art! I know “Ravencrowned” has been out for over a year now, but I am just now hearing it for the first time? Is it being re-released by your new label, De Tenebrarum Principio/ATMF, or what’s going…
