THE GRIMOIRE OF EXALTED DEEDS

PO Box 1987

We buy CD's so we review CD's.  MP3 files are for gaylords.  Streaming and dowloading is also massively gay.

Be metal.  Don't be gay.

 

Another reason for PHYSICAL media is that Bill Zebub has radio shows.  He was sent MP3's by a twat at Nuclear Blast, and when he played one of the mediocre bands, as a favor to the twat, the digital signature was flagged.  Bill Zebub was then removed from the promo list, which he despised anyway because MP3's are gay - but he told the twat at Nuclear Blast that the banning is just an automated response, and that a simple Email should rectify the situation, that is, if the twat cared about radio play.  But the twat considered the typing of an Email to be too much for her low-salaried job.  When Bill Zebub notified her that she was a twat, just in case that she did not know that she was a twat, she lied that Bill Zebub leaked the gay and mediocre MP3.  Twats will be twats.  The only leaking is from her vile urethra.

Let's avoid that, shall we?  Send real items, not virtual items.  There are some exceptions because Bill Zebub has professional relationships with non-twat publicists who have provided written consent for gay MP3's to be played on radio. 

*** The gayness of the Nuclear Blast bands only referred to the actual mediocre band that was played - this does not refer to cool and sexy bands like Pungent Stench,

DRACONIAN -Sovran (Napalm Records)


When I heard the first song i thought that the singer from WITHIN TEMPTATION had switched bands.  I intentionally never read the press releases or album notes before I listen because I my impression needs to be based on what I hear.  Getting back to the vocals, I really did think that there was a guest-vocal appearance which gave Draconian a new flavor.  Afterward, i discovered that the band actually has a new vocalist.  Despite singing in the same style as her WITHIN TEMPTATION counterpart, she beautifies the songs.  If you haven't heard DRACONIAN before, they combine several ideas, often melancholic, but not adhering to any on style, like doom or goth.  It's a hybrid that works very well.  The contrast between angelic female vocals and gruff male vocals is not as stark as in early THEATRE OF TRAGEDY.  You can discern every word, which brings the poetry to you for easier ingestion.   I have enjoyed every DRACONIAN album and was pleasantly surprised by the change of vocals.  The voice is quite beautiful. Each album has moments that stay in the imagination for a long time. If you enjoy being haunted by songs, then take a chance on this band.  -BZ
