22:24 - ScreamingSteelUS Shit happens. Shining happens. Don't go calling out Abigail Williams and Origin for touring with them or the venue or the fans or everybody else. That's just pointless and stupid.
22:23 - ScreamingSteelUS The fact that "it's black metal" doesn't necessarily excuse what are some objectively rude or unsettling practices, because as Che said, sometimes it's a bit much, but, you know, do some research. It still IS black metal.
22:22 - ScreamingSteelUS I guess I'm sympathetic towards her because she did have an uncomfortable experience for perfectly understandable reasons, but she loses me by making it everybody else's problem and blaming everyone else for humoring Kvarforth.
22:19 - ScreamingSteelUS I'm genuinely torn between "she's overreacting hilariously" and "actually, that seems pretty fair." Either way, I was so ready for her to punch Kvarforth.
22:14 - Apothecary Real shit, upon first reading this article I thought it was satirization of overly sensitive PC types. Maybe it actually is
22:13 - Maco The fact that she didn't leave makes me think deep inside she was having a great time. Lol
22:10 - Apothecary I mean I can kinda relate, I think really over the top theatrics black metal is quite a joke, and when I saw Watain live last year it was just one eyeroll moment after another. But I wasn't "offended" by it lol
Norwegian metallers Octavia Sperati have issued the following update:
At our last band meeting, Octavia Sperati decided to put band activities aside/take a break. We have reached a point where we have decided to put more time into other projects both within music, studies and families among other things for a while. We will all continue playing music, but we will take a break from the normal "Octavia life". If there are any news from any of us, we will of course let you know as soon as possible.
We are all looking forward to playing the lovely outdoor festival Lost Weekend near our headquarters Bergen on Friday, August 1st and will take the break after that. We are sorry to say that we will have to cancel the Dames Of Darkness festival in Birmingham in September.
Hope you all have a great great summer!
