Hello my quarantined darlings. RIP to the great Honor Blackman of Pussy Galore and Avengers (not Marvel, ya dimwits) fame. Pour one out for an icon of lesbian cement mixer criminal networks and judo adept lady aviators. Honor was also in Jason and the Argonauts.  Very cool.

It is raining outside and I am reeling from Bernie dropping out, which feels like a crappy hangover times 10,000. This situation sucks. Thankfully even during the pandemic I have somehow been sober since New Years and haven’t even had a cigarette all year, so things are going very well on the self care front – praise the gods. Last year was really rough for me and I did not want to repeat that in 2020. Some things we can try to manage, even when the world is chaos.

Hoping to do a lot of blogging on here since I have lost 5 fucking jobs in this pandemic. What else is there to do besides watch El Camino on Netflix because it somehow feels LESS crazy than reality? No, I will not watch that racist animal cruelty adept mullet motherfucker in Tiger King.

In DOPE movie and music related news, Sacred Bones (one of the best labels on Earth) is releasing a new collection in honor of horror classic The Thing.

In collaboration with our friends at Waxwork Records, we’re offering the all-new Lost Cues: The Thing by John Carpenter on Sacred Bones mailorder-exclusive “Ice Tomb” vinyl, their reissue of Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack for the film on Sacred Bones mailorder-exclusive “Snowfall” vinyl, and both of those releases bundled together in a deluxe slipcase. – Sacred Bones

On to some metal news!

Acherontas have a new record due from mighty Agonia this year called, fittingly, Psychic Death – The Shattering Of Perceptions. Hell yeah! Due the virus outbreak, the release date of the album has been postponed to June 26th.

“The Shattering of Perceptions” is a pretty ideal song name right now as people can’t believe they can see the Himalayas for the first time in 30 years in some places due to air pollution lifting or here in America the veil is fully lifted on how far people will go to protect the wealth class over the poor who need medicare for all during a pandemic. Obviously this is my own reflection on what the title made me feel and nothing to do with Greek occult black metal. I’m pretty effin’ pissed about Bernie not being the candidate right now in the USA. Anyway, here is the band of mystical Hellenic daddies in their own words.

ACHERONTAS commented on the new album: “Two years after the release of Faustian Ethos the coven of Acherontas returns with a monumental album, delivering the most mature, potent and diverse offering throughout a vibrant discography of 23 years up to date, fulfilling the promises left abound with closure of the triptych Psychic Death. The shattering of Perceptions and the unfolding of the Psyche. A manifest of sound, spirit and matter, blending across the ancient routes of divination. Across all the cardinal directions, the core elements of the Psychic structure detonate and flourish, risen and aflame as a newborn supernova, embedding axioms and attributes on the vital points of existence, on the ethers as in the depths. The uncharted map of man’s subtle anatomy becomes flooded with the governing universal force of Vitae, the arrows of Life, the nectars of Death and the flames of Rebirth. The crystal halls of the Psyche reverberate, once more, with a monumental milestone to glorify the Ascension to Godhood, the Devil and the Inner Demon. Expect a fierce return deep into the roots of the 90s that we had grown up and evolved through the Black Arts… No more words… Actions define Men and the Brave Spirits”.

Wow, that sounds a lot more deep than the average conversation in sewer online discourse these days. The new song below is thrilling and very mind opening, layer upon layer of dynamics revealed in a journey of bleakly inspiring Greek songwriting. Loved the little bell at the end as well or chime or whatever with the rushing wind. Really intriguing and I look forward into delving into the band’s extensive back catalogue, which I dot know as well as -say- Rotting Christ or Varathron.

Flushing humanity into a vortex , 2020 Karma

In more Greek metal news, Enshadowed have a razor sharp new single of death dancing black metal fury and a blend of Hellenic and Scandinavian influences for your ears today. Stare Into The Abyss, indeed. It is over in a raw and fiery blink of the eye, but not before shredding you to bone bits in a friction of evil like a fiberglass tornado of baby devil teeth! Order the 6 panel digipack HERE.

Hear “The Great Animist” below and don’t forget to wear PPE.

Acheron signs with Listenable Records

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, October 12, 2012 at 10:05 AM (PST)

Ohio black metal act Acheron have signed to Listenable Records. The band will be releasing their first album, Kult Des Hasses, since reuniting after a brief separation in 2010. Kult Des Hasses is a follow up to the bands 2009 The Final Conflict : Last Days of God.

Acheron have been together for over two decades and seem to have been displeased with their representation in the past. You can read comments by Acheron founder and frontman Vincent Crowley below:

“Acheron has been a thriving entity for many years now. We never got a proper push from any of our past labels to get to the next level. The band has received a lot of interest within the last year. When Listenable Records talked with me about signing ACHERON, I was indeed interested. The reason being is that he was a fan of Acheron a long time ago. He believes in our music and wants to finally give Acheron the push we deserve.’We are not just a band, we’re a fucking diabolic War Machine!'”

Acheron re-unite, set to resume work on new material

Posted by Tommy on Monday, December 27, 2010 at 10:38 AM (PST)

After more than half a year apart, Ohio Black/Death/Thrash Metal group Acheron have reunited, according to a statement released by founder/bassist/vocalist Vincent Crowley. The band separated in May, but have since been able to work out all the issues that existed between the band members.

Crowly writes,

“I really didn’t think I would do Acheron again. Before the band broke up I was working with a talented bunch of new musicians, but the vibe just wasn’t there. I couldn’t play without having that vibe. Now that almost everyone from the last studio lineup has agreed to work together again, I am totally on board and open to any ideas regarding this musical entity! I am happy as hell that we were able to put aside the unfortunate B.S. band politics/drama that sometimes can arise; hell, even worse when you’re not even sure why it even happens. Especially when Vince and I, who have been jamming together for 10 years and have been friends even longer, are able to continue to go forward. It is a great metal pleasure to announce that we are going to be able to play for the Acheron friends and fans and to continue working forward on the next piece of pure aggression that we call Acheron. Yes, we will be moving at our own pace, but the important issue is that we will be moving forward. Late last year we were working on new material and can’t wait to bust out the rehearsal tapes and start reviewing our next installment of Blasphemy and Apocalypse.”

The band has announced that they aren’t rushing into anything and are taking things a step at a time. The band’s latest album was a cover album titled “Tribute To The Devil’s Music,” released in 2003
