People who prioritize morality and politics over aesthetic appreciation will forever be at odds with more extreme art forms.

It's a given that it won't be for all palates, but works expected to conform to moral boundaries and culled of their potential for transgression cannot really be called art.

This is the point that I feel is sadly being lost in much of the contemporary art culture of today, the fact that art is always (ideally, at least) meant to tear down walls as opposed to erecting them and staying within the confines of prevailing social customs and sensitivities. Many artists today that are regarded as "classic" and recognized for their importance, such as William Blake, Poe, the Beats, the Dadaists, etc., were derided and considered as obscene in their time. I'm not saying that metal bands today that flirt with fascist, white supremacist, and Nazi imagery will go down in history as "classic," or even that they receive my support (certainly not), but they are nonetheless staying true to the spirit of transgression at the core of artistry in their own way, so with that in mind, I find it difficult to really point and say "no, you shouldn't be doing that", even if I may personally disagree with the beliefs that drive their work.

Need me some tankie bm

I recall this from a few years back, though I don't think they're really promoting communism or anything, more so just writing about the Russian Revolution, so not sure if "tankie black metal" is a fitting label.

Oh yeah, I remember that, but im pretty sure that's not really tankie bm, the same way that an album about the holocaust is not necessarily NSBM

Great album btw

After first listen, it's decent. Production is stellar, especially the audible bass, and vocal delivery is top notch. It's not especially memorable though. Songs have interesting moments, but it still relies on that frenetic, DsO-copyrighted dissonant picking and blasting combo that isn't very song-oriented. Needs a couple more goes.

Guess they acknowledged the leak:

More or less how I'm feeling about it as well. They get bonus points for going at the Yo Mama joke angle with that 4th track title though

They want to be serious, but we all know this is really them behind the scenes.

After ending my brutish, hardhitting brand of Eurasian death metal. I will sink my teeth into this.
I'm gonna do my best to turn Splinters From Your Mother's Spine into a yo mama joke in a real life setting.

Almost finishing it and I gotta say the best things are the vocals, drums (as usual) and the fucking production, man. The last one is the icing on the cake for me.
I like that it's far less dense and gives more room to appreciate the songwriting than The Synarchy Of Molten Bones which I liked but it was far too compressed.

I dig it. Probably the best thing they've done since Paracletus, possibly the best thing they've done since Fas (not counting one-track albums.)

Giving this another play through right now and enjoying it a lot more than my first listen. It's definitely better than Synarchy, particularly in the slower moments where the bass really comes through and things get more midtempo and the composition just overall has more room to breathe. I certainly wouldn't mind if these guys ever did a full album of material more in the vein of the 8th or 11th tracks here.

Gave this album another spin today but couldnt finnish it, dont like their sound anymore and those gimmick lyrics is so bad - the idea of the palingenesis, the theme of this album, is laughable.

Good article on Mikko Aspa and his music https://varisverkosto.com/2019/03/the-influencers-of-the-finnish-ns-music-scene-part-3-mikko-aspa-of-northern-heritage-clandestine-blaze-vapaudenristi-sarvilevyt/

Okay, but just a couple of hours ago this album was still second to none in your list.

What on earth happened that you had to revise your opinion so drastically?
Did you by any chance rediscover your secret love for Swallow The Sun, Amorphis and power metal?

Probably because I in a bad moment thought that the lyrics was some kind of farse on fascism, but now when I realize that they are serious It gets laughable in a comic way. And when they more or less just repeat what theyve done musically before its easy to prefer other stuff thats happened on earth.

They're still basically inaudible though. Just funny that bad lyrics can modify the music from being "some of the best black metal" to "repeating themselves."

Just a change of opinion, this album didnt last long. With most albums I go back and listen again after a couple of months but probably wont happen with this, as those lyrics makes it kind of hard, they are there regardless of whatever. It will be fun to read your praises of the music only though

This is 7 album for me, so probably won't get too much more attention bar the odd listen every year or so *kiss*
