It is upon us! BLACK Friday! Time for the most evil Norwegian Black Metal I have ever heard. Granted not a huge fan of the genre but RtBE researched a few bands after enjoying the documentary Until The Light Takes Us.
Gorgoroth takes the cake (having a Tolkien name only helps them in my book). The video might not be the safest for work if you have to be slaving away on this day, but it sure gets to the point with severed animal heads and naked crucified bodies...in fact check out this tidbit from Wikipedia regarding this exact show:
On February 1, 2004, during a concert being recorded for a DVD in Kraków, Poland, the band displayed sheep heads on stakes, a bloodbath of 80 litres of sheep's blood, Satanic symbols, and four naked crucified models on stage. A police investigation took place with allegations of religious offence (which is prosecutable under Polish law) and cruelty to animals. Though these charges were considered, the band was not charged as it was ruled that they were unaware of the fact that what they were doing was illegal, although the concert organiser was eventually fined 10000zł in 2007 as he knew about it and neither informed the band that it was against the law nor intervened. The whole controversy led to the band being dropped from the roster of the Nuclear Blast Tour and the footage of the concert being confiscated by the police. Following this controversy – and with Gorgoroth also having achieved a larger degree of worldwide recognition through Nuclear Blast's distribution facilities – the contract between both parties was bilaterally terminated. Gorgoroth further secured a reputation as a band with a vehement anti-Right Hand Path agenda, of which certain employees in the company were alleged to have felt uneasy due to their own personal beliefs.
Holy cow that is straight out of Metalocalypse... Jokes aside this is pretty badass shit all around, crank it. METAL!!! BLACK METAL!!! Enjoy...or Die!!!
