Well, this is horrid news. At age 34, it appears that The Devil’s Blood mastermind (and frankly musical genius) Selim Lemouchi has passed away. Cause of death has yet to be revealed. Kicking myself for missing them live on the Decibel tour a few years back. What a shame that this massive talent’s contributions are now at their finale. Still, Lemouchi leaves behind quite a legacy for a candle snuffed out so early. R.I.P. Selim! I am still upset about David Gold from Woods of Ypres (awhile ago at this point), and now this! Can’t some shitty crab core bands go meet their maker instead? Bleghhh.

Here’s a link to an old MR Exclusive interview MetalriotJD did with Selim.

MR Exclusive Interview: Selim Lemouchi of The Devil’s Blood

Posted by JDKleinhans on Thursday, April 26, 2012 at 9:56 PM (PST)

I recently had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with a man who creates some of the most cosmically transcendental music not seen since the 1970’s. We discussed the importance of focusing on the music to provide its listeners with their own personal truth that is to be discovered through its listening, the struggle of humanity against its ego, and the power of Satan’s message of freedom by embracing the chaos and truth of music. A truly intellectual and philosophical conversation. Enter the world of Selim of The Devil’s Blood through the gate of chaos and the truth of lies, it’s all right here.

Show Review: Decibel Magazine Tour – Chicago – 04.13.12

Posted by JDKleinhans on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 8:22 PM (PST)

Friday the 13th of April 2012. Chicagoland lay beneath a cold grey sky. The windy city was living up to its other known name. I ventured forth from my quiet wooded hamlet in the north to partake in the glorious heathenry and debauchery of declared freedom and independence – The Decibel Magazine Tour.

Featuring a varied lineup of elite bands, veterans and journeymen of the left hand path, the tour began its odyssey on April 11th in Ohio and will wind its way through North America to arrive at its closing ceremony in New York City on May 12th. I had the distinct pleasure of experiencing the musical rituals of these bands on its third night beneath the ceiling and narrow hall of The Bottom Lounge, just west of downtown Chicago. Unfortunately, due to the natural chaos of the universe and the interference of man, Watain had been postponed and I missed their musical display by only a handful of days. Though, my disappoint was quickly salved when the first hum of the guitar amp tickled my ears and shook my flesh.

MR Staff Picks: Top Albums of January 2012 (MetalRiotJD)

Posted by JDKleinhans on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 at 10:07 PM (PST)

This is one hell of a start to a new year. Usually I’m not enamored with an album until the first thaw of the Midwest winter, but not this year my fellow cretins. Mind you I haven’t listened to every single album that has come out this month. Who has that kind of time!? I wish I did.

Anyway, I’m rambling. Head on over here to see what I boldly declare as this month’s top metal albums. Let the harassing criticism begin!

Album Review: The Devil’s Blood – “The Thousandfold Epicentre”

Posted by JDKleinhans on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 10:08 PM (PST)

Who are or what is The Devil’s Blood? I have been attempting to find that answer for several weeks now and I have finally given up so I can focus purely on the music that they create. But bear with me for a moment. The founder and leader is known only as SL/TDB/A-O and the band’s second member is F/TDB/MOS. Also, if you take a moment to visit their website you will quickly notice that it is divided into areas known as Declarations, Rituals, Incantations, Apparitions, Weapons, and Evocations. Lastly, if you happen to discover any type of bio it is incredibly cryptic with such descriptions as “powerful, sensual and energetic mixture of Musical Theatre and Ritual Practise”.

Okay, so why am I going on about this? Well, it’s because the music of “The Thousandfold Epicentre” is just as cryptic as the band itself in a way that is menacingly beautiful. To see what it is that I’m rambling on about head on over here.

The Devil’s Blood is streaming the new track “Die The Death”

Posted by xNJxBreakdowNx on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 6:38 PM (PST)

With the North American release of the new album The Thousandfold Epicentre by The Devil’s Blood only a week away, the band is streaming the new track “Die The Death.” The new album from the Dutch occult rockers has been called “a rollicking adventure somewhere between early ’80s heavy metal and ’70s Canterbury scene.” The album is based on occultist themes, but in terms of the music, it’s one of the purest sounds you could ever hear, with female vocals that go with it perfectly.

Guitarist SL said that “there is definately going to be a North American tour. I can’t give out any further details at the moment, but it is going to happen.”

Stay tuned to Metal Riot for the review of The Thousandfold Epicentre, coming soon.

To stream the track for all your listening pleasure, click here.
