WULF’S BEST OF METAL IN 2018 BRUTAL BLOWOUT BONANZA

OK, so first of all, I’ll be honest- “Top 10 _______ of ‘year x’” lists in the past have always been kind of stressful for me because I suddenly start looking at everyone else’s lists that come out around December and realize that most of them are better/”cooler” than mine, are much better written and/or…


Black Metal Banchan – Part 7 (Adokhsiny/Goatphomet, Nocturnal Damnation + Budae Jjiggae + R-Point, The Guard Post)

OK, so for the last Black Metal Banchan we talked about some hellish stuff coming out of the Land of the Morning Calm, so we’re going to just continue that trend for this episode!  However, we’re kicking it up a notch by going with a more “war is hell” theme by discussing the discography of…


WULF’S TOP 10 METAL ALBUMS OF 2017 EXTREME BLOWOUT EXTRAVAGANZA!!

Oh man, 2017 has already come and passed!!  Not really much to say; I’m just sad that I didn’t have enough time to really keep up with all the good shit that came out this year.  In the past I always kept up with the metal scene with my trusty subscriptions to Metal Maniacs (before…


Malicious Intent – August 6, 2017

Judge Dredd’s final show 🙁 Luckily, he plays a ton of really good shit and I (Wulf) keep things from getting too depressing by making bad jokes and getting into dumb arguments with him!  Always a good time with the MI crew! Also, JD will still be involved with the Malicious Intent Facebook page (I’m…


Malicious Intent – July 30, 2017

Hooooly shit this show was epic!!  Not only does this show feature our favorite Malicious Intent DJs CJ, Judge Dredd, and Gorn, but both Mark of the Beast and I (Wulf) also stop by to get in on the action!!  Yep, that’s right; I was on vacation from work so I decided to take a…


Malicious Intent – February 5, 2017

What’s up everyone!!  CJ and Judge Dredd are joined by a couple guests this evening!  Coach (from local KC thrash punks Altered Beast stops by to hang out and talk about AB’s raging new 7″ self-titled debut, and later Malicious Intent alum Mark of the Beast shows up to crash the party!!  Fuck yeah!!   PLAYLIST:…


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…


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…


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…


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 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 – 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…


Black Metal Banchan – Part 5 (Pyha + Jjambbong Ramyeon + The Whispering Corridors Series)

New to Black Metal Banchan?  You can read earlier entries here! That’s right everyone, it’s time for another Black Metal Banchan!!  This time around, we’re going to discuss the delightful music of a mysterious Korean black metal entity by the name of Pyha (폐허).   Y’see, many years ago  began floating around internet metal forums…


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 – July 3, 2016

  What a show!   CJ and Judge Dredd get anti-establishment in this Independence Day-themed show!   However, they play Iced Earth at the end so I guess that cancels out all the earlier anti-government tracks that were played before them.   Get a job you two! Also, local mysterious post-black metal bros Aprilmist join…


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…


Black Metal Banchan – Part 3: Tr00 Korean Black Metal & Snacks (Kalpa + Random Korean Snack Classics + Bedevilled)

Howdy folks!  The Black Metal Banchan continues!  First up, we have arguably South Korea’s first “trve” black metal band- Kalpa!   I’m pretty sure the band is inactive/split-up (and has been for some time now), but that doesnt mean we can’t explore their mysterious music and contemplate their grim impact on the Korean black metal…


WULF’S (& FRIENDS’!!) MAYHEMIC TOP 10 METAL ALBUMS OF 2015 BLITZKRIEG OF BRUTALITY

This year, I’m going to be doing something a bit different.   Of course, I’ll be including my own top 10 (which, I think we can all admit, is going to be much better than everyone else’s you’ll find on this blog or any other place on the internet (ESPECIALLY Judge Dredd’s wack-ass list, but…


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…


Interview with Bestial Desekrator of Sexual Fornications and Goetic Ritual of Nocturnal Damnation!!

Interview conducted via email in August, 2014.   Thanks to Gumiho (구미호) for the translation from Korean to English. It took fucking forever to get this interview done, which was entirely my fault.   Anyway, there’s been a few updates since this interview took place- at the time of this writing, Goatphomet is on hold since…


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 Banchan – Part 1: Sad Legend + Cheetos

Metal magazines and websites always talk about metal and beer, but what about metal and SNACKS?   Yeah, I know that anyone who listens to the excellent (and my favorite) podcast Illogical Contraption knows that they always do a snack chat segment during their show, but I always feel like I’m missing out on all the…


Malicious Intent: Reunion of the Deviants

Clockwise, from top left: Judge Dredd, Mark of the Beast, CJ, Mean Dean the Metal Machine, Metal Al Unholy hails to thee, loyal Malicious Intent legions!!  This blog has been slightly inactive the past few months, mainly due to Judge Dredd and I being busy with our scholarly post-graduate studies and CJ venturing into the…

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…


Interview with Hedge Wizard!!

Interview conducted via e-mail in March 2015. Listen and support Hedge Wizards’ music: https://hedgewizard.bandcamp.com/ Keep updated about Hedge Wizard: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hedge-Wizard/725977330805106…


Dungeon Synth Explorations – Part 4 – Hedge Wizard

Hedge Wizard is a very mysterious, obscure dungeon synth artist hailing from the equally mysterious, obscure city of Toledo, Ohio (seriously though, I know nothing about Toledo).   What I find most interesting about his style is that it reminds me not so much of (Era I) Mortiis or Wongraven, but point-and-click adventure games from…


OUR EVIL NEW LOGO!!

Malicious Intent has a brand new logo, courtesy of Erick Neyra (Goat Semen, Evil Damn, ex-Black Angel) / Austral Holocaust Productions!! BEHOLD: More exclusive artwork for Malicious Intent is on the way as well!   In the meantime, you can follow the links below to check out all of Erick Neyra’s stuff! Also, if you’re…


Interview with Crow of Lord Lovidicus!!


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…

Dungeon Synth Explorations – Part 1 – ERANG

To start things off for my series delving into the mysterious depths of the world of dungeon synth, I’d like to talk about Erang.   While it would make sense to start off with the godfathers of the genre (such as Mortiis, Burzum (ambient albums, obv), Lord Wind, etc.), I’m gonna mix it up a…


ZOOM!!

What’s up sluts and slut-shamers!!  DJ Wulf is back in the house, here to just make a quick post and get everyone caught up on what’s going on here at Malicious Intent Enterprises- 1.   Everyone welcome Tanelorn!!  He was the last DJ for Malicious Intent’s radio show at the University of Kansas’ own 90.7…


Interview with Kwon Yong-man of Christfuck!!


Wulf’s Top 10 Metal Albums of 2013 Insanity

So there it is, another year down the drain!! I really wish I had spent more time listening to what came out last year because there seems to have been a lot of good stuff, but unfortunately these days I spend most of my time listening to stupid podcasts and comedians 🙁 Anyway, that being…


Top 10 Metal Albums of 2013 Preamble

The Malicious Intent crew in the middle of a typical debate.  Mark of the Beast is usually the first one to burst into tears and run from room, calling us all “assholes” and slamming the door on his way out.  One of the most annoying things I find about myself is that I can get…


The Grym Kym Interviews: Episode 1

One of my favorite things ever is to ask people what their opinions are on music, especially when under the influence of alcohol or other things.  This interview with Grym Kym was conducted sometime in the freezing Winter of 2012, in the middle of the night outside of town….


Interview with Senyt of Dark Mirror ov Tragedy!!


Interview with Jeong Hyeon-seok of Mara!!


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 A. ExI of Corvus!!


Interview with S Slaughter of Séance Records!!


Interview with J.P. of Nontinuum!!


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…


Ones That Got Away: Lost Interviews

Over the several years that I was a DJ for Malicious Intent, I conducted as many interviews as I had time for and have posted almost all of them on here. Unfortunately, there are some that I either lost, conducted live on-air and didn’t record, or found the audio to be too garbled (ESPECIALLY with…


Interview with Isvaroth of Nephrolith!!

Interview conducted via PM on the metal-archives.com forum, July 2011. http://www.myspace.com/nephrolithband/ WULF: Congratulations on the successful execution of your new album, “Xullux”. I definitely enjoyed listening to this album, especially from a promising new band from Slovenia! How has the reception been for this album so far? What were you aiming to accomplish with “Xullux”?…


Interview with Paul Delaney of Black Anvil!!


Interview with John 5!!


WULF’S BEST OF 2010 EXTRAVAGANZA

Yeah, yeah, it’s officially 2011 now, but I really wanted to wait till the end of the year to make my list for two reasons:1. So that I could consider any releases by bands that pulled a Nokturnal Mortum and put out their album on like New Year’s Eve.2. I could listen to as many…

Interview with Steven Rathbone of Lair of the Minotaur!!

LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR OFFICIAL MYSPACE I realized when typing this up that I kind of implied that The Gaslight Tavern in North Lawrence is a bad venue to see live music. That’s definitely not what I meant, as anyone who has seen a show there knows that it’s a good time. However, I still…


Interview with Chrigel Glanzmann of Eluveitie!!

Phone interview conducted on April 21, 2010. ELUVEITIE OFFICIAL MYSPACE This interview was actually supposed to take place a day or two before, but due to Eluveitie getting mixed up with all the time zone changes (at the time the band was in the middle of their recent tour in North America). However, Chrigel was…


Interview with Rev. James A. Rota II and Emily J. Burton of Fireball Ministry!!

FIREBALL MINISTRY OFFICIAL MYSPACE  Phone interview conducted on April 8, 2010. I made a huge mistake when preparing for this interview. For one, while I had listened to a lot of the album, either I was distracted or just not paying attention and mistakenly thought that the song “Sundown” was on Fireball Ministry’s latest self-titled…


WULF’S 10 Favorite Metal Albums of All Time

I really can’t make a “Top Ten” list because it’s just too damn hard! I had a difficult time as it was coming up with this list… Also, I noticed when writing this post that most of the albums that are my favorite aren’t necessarily the best album of a given band, but they mean…


Interview with David White of Heathen!!

NO, this isn’t an interview with the dude from Disturbed!! He’s David White, vocalist for the newly-reformed, legendary Bay Area thrash band Heathen! David was nice enough to take time out of his day to catch up with us on what’s been going on as of late with the band. I should also preface this…


Interview with Jesse Leach of The Empire Shall Fall!!

Phone interview was conducted on April 1st, 2010. The Empire Shall Fall Official Myspace This was a cool interview, as Jesse was a really nice guy and seemed genuinely enthused about me liking his new band. The interview went really well, Jesse was very talkative (as you can tell in his responses to my questions)…

Interview with Thrawn Thelemnar of Secrets of the Moon!!

OFFICIAL BAND MYSPACE This interview was conducted via email in early December, 2009. In hindsight my questions weren’t very well written, but since I had spoken to the band for quite a long time in person after they had recently played a show at the Riot Room in Kansas City, I for some reason thought…


Interview with Sami Hinkka of Ensiferum!!

Official Ensiferum Myspace This phone interview was conducted on Thursday, August 13th, 2009 by WULF and MARK OF THE BEAST at MARK OF THE BEAST’S dank dungeon lair. WULF: OK, so I might pronounce some names wrong as we go because Finnish is a really interesting language with some unique names, but I don’t know…


Interview with Lazarus A.D.!!

Interview with Lazarus A.D. Follow Lazarus A.D. on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lazarusad Taken on June 6, 2009 at the Beaumont Club, Kansas City, Missouri. I should note that this was a pretty difficult interview to transcribe because everyone was talking all at once and at times it was often really hard to figure out who was saying what…so,…
