Welcome To My Nightmare... (An Introduction To The Sick And Twisted)

Written by: Lucas
Published: 21.01.2009
Welcome, my doomed friends, for doomed you are. Welcome to the nightmare, welcome to the end. Before you lay a path that will bring sorrow, pain, misery and hate, but also ecstasy adrenaline. You will be submitted to inhumane visual and physical torture and will encounter visions more horrifying than man can comprehend. Surely, you'll lose your sanity along the way but ultimately, it'll become clear as dawn that the losing of sanity is not an unfortunate side-effect, but the penultimate goal of this wicked journey. Sanity has always been the greatest enemy for those that seek bliss. And bliss we seek.

Those that would rather plod along in their pitiful, meaningless existence, without ever knowing the sacred truth: make your hasty and cowardly return now. Through this decision we can tell the chosen from the futile. Confide in me and the truth shall be laid in front of you, in its purest and most naked sense. Come with me...

Our journey shall be a purely audio-driven journey, although it will not seem that way. Do not fight that, resistance is useless and the quicker you surrender the quicker your goal can be achieved. Darken the room, sit down, clear your mind and immerse yourself. Now, these are your options. Some will be a little lighter and others will be stronger. Ask yourself with what you'd like to start. Some are bleak, some are dark, some are filthy and some are frightening. Some are drone, some are doom, some are black. What connects them is that they will all evoke stronger emotions than you have ever encountered before, either of primal fear, ecstatic bliss or impregnable insanity. Now are you ready to say "goodbye" to life as you know it? Then come with me...


HELLISH & HAUNTING

Corrupted - El Mundo Frio
Corrupted, the Japanese masters of Sludge Doom, are never in a hurry. Every time they pick up their instruments they make sure the song has a proper build up, which results in long songs containing well-crafted build ups and ecstatic releases. The best example of their style, "El Mundo Frio", is a single track of a whopping seventy minutes which travels various times to both heaven and hell. With an Irish and Grand harp, deep drones, brutal distortion, eerie spoken vocals, squealing feedback and hellish growls they have created an album that has no equal.
Genre: Sludge Death/Doom


Coffins - Buried Death
If you like Death metal and have your own personal vendetta with anything modern or progressive, Coffins are with you. Evolution? Progression? This is Death Metal as if it never turned 1995. Slightly catchy, but most of all brutal, sick, intense and highly uncompromising. As if they're a steamroller on high velocity, they simply go through things. You're better off at the bottom of the ocean, the weight of the water crushing your eyes out of their sockets, than bearing the density of this baby. But guess what? You don't have that privilege.
Genre: Old School Doom/Death



Moss - Chtonic Rites
Moss does not take prisoners and Moss does not grasp the concept of mercy. Moss only has a severe contempt for humanity and will do anything it its power to destroy it. And luckily, Moss has a lot of power. Inhumane down-tuned guitars with corrosive distortion in a trudging pace with piercing feedback and tortured wailing vocals - Moss is not something for the weak. Moss is a long and pitch-black tunnel of psychological and psychical torment, without the clichéd light at the end. No, at the end there is only madness and the unconquerable desire to turn around and go through the addictive insanity once again.
Genre: Drone Doom



DRONE & NOISE

Skullflower - IIIrd Gatekeeper
Skullflower is a highly prolific band and an enigma on its own. For the average music listener they are a nightmare, as they are about as far removed from regular music aesthetics and other irrelevant matters. Best described as "improve noise" (or at least best sounding), these guys create soundscapes that will baffle you. At first the noise will sound like, well, noise, but after a while patterns originate and mental images are conjured. That's when you're no longer far from the realization that it's not despite the noise that this is relaxing, but because of the noise. After all, in true noise, there is something to be found for everyone.
Genre: "Improv" Noise


TenHornedBeast - The Sacred Truth
TenHornedBeast is a monster. A monster of gigantic proportions. With ten spiked horns, ever changing body elements, a free flowing abomination of Drone, Doom and Noise. Abandon all common song structures. As much as you'd like to understand this beast through observation from the outside, you know that's not enough. The only option you have is to delve in deep, without knowing if there's ever going to be back. Do you dare risking your life, will you risk everything in search of the sacred truth...?
Genre: Drone/Doom


Hjarnidaudi - Pain:Noise:March
Hjarnidaudi, the reincarnation of the majestic Hlidolf, proves that Drone is not limited to themes such as emptiness, the void, darkness et cetera. No, this time it is something uplifting! Minimalistic fiery drones that build up to orgasmic orgies of instrumental hell, that's what this is about. "Pain:Noise:March" is the ultimate simulation of lying on the ground, with the sun quickly nearing, scorching your paralyzed body and everything else on its way. One of the most convincing musical obliterations, ever. Sounds good, no? If it doesn't, you shouldn't even be reading this.
Genre: "Fire" Drone



BOWEL TURNERS

Atavist - II: Ruined
Atavist is a band to watch out for. Their deceiving subtle acoustic guitars offer a safe haven, where all sludge doomster weary of the constant sound blizzards will desperately seek rest. But as is usual in the genre, danger is never far away and Atavist is a band that surely packs a punch. Combining the godless violence of Corrupted, Grief, Eyehategod and other similar bands, your bowels are in for a rollercoaster ride. Make sure the little boys room is free when you put this baby on, as your digestion might just be unexpectedly interrupted.
Genre: Sludge Doom


Winter - Into Darkness
Winter is just about as heavy as it gets. Few to no bands can achieve such solid heaviness with so little. Drums, bass, guitars and vocals, that's it. Wait, change that into: a drum sound as heavy as crashing into an atom bunker at a 100 miles an hour, a bass sound that you can't hear but you can feel how it's ripping your bowels apart, a guitar that releases pure anger through sledgehammer riffs and finally a set of fucked off, hatefully brutal growls. Winter is heavy as fuck.
Genre: Death/Doom


Disembowelment - Transcendece Into The Peripheral
If you find a certain lack of aggression in extreme doom, you're listening to the wrong bands. Because there certainly is an overwhelming hatred and violence present in certain acts. Disembowelment or diSEMBOWELMENT as they are also referred to is one of these acts with their noisy, grinding Death/Doom sound hybrid. But there are also quieter moments, albeit that they are very sparse. And combined with a raw as fuck, but very fitting, production "Transcending Into The Peripheral" is Australia's most soul crushing, body trampling piece of art and it's not likely to be dethroned any time soon. Get their self-titled compilation with the full album and demos and such.
Genre: Death/Doom



FEAR, FILTH AND TORTURE

Black Bile - Cloacal Meditation
Black Bile depicts animalistic fear. Perhaps the strongest emotion of the entire spectrum, as it used to be our primary weapon in the struggle for existence. There's no need for it anymore though, so even fear is domesticated and sold in small doses, such as horror-movies, or, Black Bile. A dark abandoned labyrinth of caves, a wounded man somewhere, haunting vocals from every corner of your soul, you know the deal. Yet, this is surprisingly convincing. So convincing that the occasional chill morphs into a layer of frost on your back and the adrenaline starts pumping. As you almost lose it you feel alive, most alive!
Genre: Black Doom


Mysticum - In The Streams Of Inferno
Mysticum were one of a kind in the old days of the Norwegian Black metal scene. Yeah, Thorns was doing something similar a couple of years earlier, but in 1996 Mysticum had the final word in the niche of ice cold industrial Black metal. "In The Streams Of Inferno" is an amazingly cold and ghastly album, with a malicious attitude that knows few equals to this very day. The anguished, truly inhumane screams, the disturbing samples, the furious riffs that pierce the soul and the harsh industrial poundings of the drum machine: this is much more than just the sum of the pieces. This is malicious!
Genre: (Pitch-)Black Metal


Silencer - Death - Pierce Me
Silencer is insane. Better said, Silencer's former vocalist is insane. And even though they receive a lot of shit these days for the incredibly over-the-top vocals, no one can deny their riffs are awesome. And after a couple of plays, the vocals become awesome too. Every track has its own shredding riff and throughout the entire album the vocals are in-fucking-sane. Imagine a high cat being skinned, in the middle of the night 'in season'. Basically the question you should ask yourself is: "Do I want to hear what it sounds like to channel extreme psychosis through Black metal?" You will probably hate this, but that's ok, because they hate you too!
Genre: "Suicidal" Black Metal



FUNEREAL SADNESS

Skepticism - Stormcrowfleet
"Stormcrowfleet" is the début album of the Finnish funeral doomsters Skepticism. Slowing down the dirty death metal sound of the eighties to eerily slow-paced doom dirges, with heavy use of organs, they where the co-originators of the wonderful sound that is nowadays known as "funeral doom". A genre which knows but few equals in terms of sadness, and probably none in terms of slowness. "Stormcrowfleet" is one of the few outstanding albums in this genre which now is marked by few brilliant, but many average bands. Creeping slow heavy riffs, deep growls and eerie organs are the soundtrack to a nightmare in slow-motion.
Genre: Funeral Doom


Tyranny - Tides Of Awakening
Tides Of Awakening is the testimony of man that died at sea. Or rather, at the bottom of the ocean. With an atmosphere as crushing as the countless tons of water flowing over you. Tides Of Awakening is Funeral Doom the way it is supposed to be, with incredibly slow dirges, a bleak atmosphere, tragic lead guitars as the bubbles that only just escape you and forever escape to the surface. You can only hope that drowning will be quick and Chtulhu doesn't drop by before you die.
Genre: Funeral Doom


Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
Esoteric has always been a band that did their own thing, and did it brilliantly. Every new album so far has been a step up from the last and this year that resulted in the mind-blowing masterpiece "The Maniacal Vale". A hundred minutes of whirling, breath-takingly beautiful and extremely inhumane funeral doom is what "The Maniacal Vale" offers, spread out over two discs. Well-crafted, sweeping lead guitars and solo's, a maelstrom of sound and emotive growls from beyond the hellfire make this one of the best Doom releases ever. Just look at the artwork: doesn't that say more than enough?
Genre: Psychedelic Funeral Doom



ECSTATIC MADNESS

The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls With Sand
Ecstasy, fear, madness, insanity, bliss. And lava. Those are the keywords for The Angelic Process' "Weighing Souls With Sand", an album by today's very own sirens. Lava because the massively distorted guitars will through up such huge waves of red-hot drone that you'll envision yourself flowing down an erupting volcano in a stream of scorching but amazingly colourful lava. No album can match this one in terms of colour palette. But that is not all. What's more is that this album contains one of the most intense expressive vocals of all time. Ecstatic, frightening, maddened, insane and blissful - and at all times clean and pure. All in all an overwhelming release of massive proportions, this will stun you by its serene and utter beauty. Breathtaking.
Genre: "Volcanic" Drone Doom


Urfaust - Geist Ist Teufel
Urfaust is a Dutch band and probably some of the most original Black metal you'll ever hear. Perhaps this is the little odd beast of the entire bunch, but that does not make it any less good. The most minimalistic of drumming and guitars and a dull production are not the most attractive features, and neither is the vocalist with his off-key wailing. But this is actually good. The instrumentation is basic but sets the mood as such and the vocalist - well, the vocalist is just dancing around a campfire at night, with the white foam of madness on his lips, singing his ungodly songs of worship. Pierce through the bad first impression and join the ecstatic dance.
Genre: Black Metal


Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao
"Ordo Ad Chao" is a wicked beast, from an unusual band. You all know the stories and rumours and you all know about the bands experimental but often not well-received past. Well, now they seem to have finally found exactly that sound which they were looking for and the band re-establishes itself as visionary musicians. "Ordo Ad Chao" is a thick, schizophrenic, dark and far from usual album with more progression in it then Dream Theater could ever hope for. Journey through the dark corners of the mind of a wicked genius and discover things that would be best kept in the dark forever.
Genre: "Psychotic" Black Metal



SPACE & EMPTINESS

Darkspace - III
On their third album, the elusive Darkspace perfectly combined the dense speed of the first album and the astral ambience of the second, creating a perfect journey through the cold, dark void. Darkspace is this: penetrating screams of a poor soul that has his legs on one end of the universe and his head on the other, with both arms in wormholes, drawn and quartered on a whole new level. Guitar riffs that rage through the void with twice the speed of light. Lead guitars of sweeping, melodic beauty. Astral keys of cosmic cold. And the wall, the unimaginable border, the cosmic maelstrom that forms the edge of the universe, where time and fabric is ripped and lost souls suffer their eternal torment. Everything about this album is cold, dark and empty. Put this on and experience utter emptiness.
Genre: "Void" Black Metal


Hlidolf - V01D
Hlidolf - brainchild of Vidar Ermesjø - is minimalism at its most minimalistic. Only the most basic sounds are used here, namely deep drones and ever changing, slow keyboard patterns. That's all there is to it. For the full seventy minutes, Hlidolf drones away in slow-motion, without build-ups or other bullshit. No, this is what the void sounds like and you can like it or leave. All senses off, all brain activity ceased. Nothing.
Genre: "Void" Drone


Uncertainty Principle - Distant
"Distant" is the only imaginable title for this album by Uncertainty Principle, except maybe "alien". A drone/noise attack of utter grey evokes visions of alien planets, eerie inhabitants, the confusion of ungraspable noises, the overwhelming powerlessness of sensing the hostile vibe in the air, without being able to do something about it. Chaos and fear. Drone, Noise, Funeral Doom, Ambient. Perhaps we should still wait before we venture into space...
Genre: Drone/Noise



DRUGS, DEPRESSION & DECLINE

Shining - The Eerie Cold
Shining, the vehicle on which the dark soul Kvarforth races through life, is the ultimate embodiment of hateful depression and suicidal adrenaline. "The Eerie Cold" is their masterpiece so far and a professionally executed Black metal adrenaline shot. Kvarforth tears his soul out in his vocals while the rest of the band lays down powerful, sometimes bluesy riffs and top-notch drumming. Depression and self-loathing are celebrated issues on this album, but are not allowed to fully manifest themselves until everyone else is mentally destroyed! Kvarforth wants you down and he'll do everything to achieve that, but you have the choice: run away now or revel in drug-infested misanthropy. What's it going to be?
Genre: "Suicidal" Black Metal


Diapsiquir - Virus STN
Diapsiquir. With their extremely chaotic music, these guys take the sickness far. Very far. With their own modern Satanism, worshipping Satan through drugs, they embody the moral decline of Western society"Virus STN" is a hymn to this downfall, the cry of the outcasts of our society, that sought their redemption in drugs, misanthropy and the thrill of crime and vile sex. In nine tracks they present over a million different musical ideas and praise drugs, decline, lust and pedophilia. If you want to take a look into the mind of a drugged up, mentally unstable psychopath, go for it. Open up and let the urban filth wash through your veins.
Genre: "Psychopathic" Black metal


Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
Acid Bath are the masters of bluesy Sludge and together with their more fucked-off brothers Eyehategod the originators of Sludge. "When The Kite String Pops" is their début and masterpiece and will blow your mind. Delicious sludgy heavy riffing, Dax' penetrating screams and emotional clean vocals, fucked off lyrics from the inside of a serial-killer, this is a killer album. Tracks like "Jezebel", "Dr. Seuss Is Dead" and "Scream Of The Butterfly" will have you addicted and craving for more in no time. Black Sabbath with Louisiana blues and filth, awesome!
Genre: Sludge Doom



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Obviously none of these albums are easy-listening material. Most will require a lot of work to get into the vibe of the music, but I can assure you each and every one of them is worth the effort. Also note that most of the albums are suitable for more than one "category" and the division may not be a hundred percent perfect, but they are only meant as a fun addition. Of course this is not all there is. Nor have I mentioned all "must haves" concerning some genres. If I were to do that, this blog would never end and you would never get the chance to check some of it out.

Most of these albums have a more in-depth review on this website, either by me or by one of my colleagues. This article only serves as an introduction to the special genre of "sick" music, to which all of these bands more or less belong to. I've tried sparking your interest, now use the internet to your own advance, and do some research on what sounds interesting. If you can't enjoy any of this, know, this is only for the sick.

Welcome to my nightmare...

Good article!

Well, as I told you earlier, I'm listening do Darkspace, and I found it easy to access.

But maybe... I'm sick too!







PazuzuSKOM - 21.01.2009 at 00:19  
Really great work... and its fully of interesting records to hear...thnx a lot man
ylside - 21.01.2009 at 00:31  
Excellent!
I needed such an article as I'll be probably checking bands from this "void" a bit more in the future I guess.

Who am I to disagree?

These all sound very interesting to me. To bad to get them I'd have o pay my life away. great article, and good job Lucas

Sick music really is one of the greatest genres out there.
Tod_Engel - 21.01.2009 at 17:48  
Thank you for this good and informative article!!
Shadowcross - 22.01.2009 at 19:09  
Of the albums I have heard before from this list, i have found them eerily soothing. Relaxing. Is that sickening? stormcrowfleet is great

I'm interested in these 'drone/noise' albums.. haven't really listened to music from that genre!
Thryce - 22.01.2009 at 21:33  
Nice list you have there. Nice nightmare too if you ask me; I'm already 3/4 there.

Thanks for finally letting me listen to The Angelic Process - I just couldn't get to it until your article. And while we're at it, I've been listening to a lot of Drone lately, but I never heard of Fire/Volcanic Drone before though. Mind enlightening me, oh, twisted one.

Hehe, what Drone have you been listening to? As for the Fire and Volcanic Drone, it's what effect is has on me. Hjarnidaudi feels like obliteration by scorching heat, The Angelic Process sounds like a flowing stream of red-hot lava.
Mr. Doctor - 23.01.2009 at 15:55  
Awesome article. We really need more of this stuff and more people to discover it.
Out of the 24 albums... I' already into 10 or something. I just don't have any material [yet]
Like I said before, great article and I like how you write

I still kinda miss Lifelover's Pulver and Khanate's s/t or Things Viral. But I know you don't like the last one. But Lifelovr is fucking awesome IMO.

Maybe I'm just crazy... but I find Moss too sound reallly similar to Khanate.



We all smoke the bones of baby dolls.....
Richard - 23.01.2009 at 21:40  
Great article and approach. Very informative in a concise way. Tyranny is my favourite from the ones you listed (well, out of the ones I've heard, and there are several in the list I haven't). I've heard some of Coffins and it sounds really promising, still meaning to check the whole album out...
Lucas - 23.01.2009 at 21:43  
There's nothing better than reading you all say that you haven't heard some of the albums in the list. I hope you're going to check those that seem interesting to you as well.

I'm plotting a part 2, but i first need to make a nice list of interesting albums. It'll probably be up around summer '09 hahaha.
Dane Train - 24.01.2009 at 03:15  
WOW! Amazing write up. I am very appreciative of your effort for this article. Thanks! I just feel bad that none of these albums seem to appeal to me. But thanks again it was so informative.
BestMetalstormer - 07.02.2009 at 05:08  
Many good bands I have known few among them. Gotta check all out.
Dest - 11.02.2009 at 13:20  
Many names in this article have a familiar sound and I know a few of them.

Skepticism is awesome, great band.

I never could get into Drone Doom, but after reading this, I'm off finding me some.

Thanks man!
Deadsoulman - 12.02.2009 at 01:01  
From those I know (about two thirds of the bands mentioned), two bands really bore me to death: Coffins and Tyranny. Tyranny I've never liked, I've always found them average at best and totally uninventive. Coffins I enjoyed at first, but the more I listen to Buried Death, the less interesting and fulfilling I find it. I love their sound, but the music's extremely repetitive. Repetition can be good, obviously, but Coffins are repetitive in the "hey we don't actually have ideas, so let's play that same riff for seven minutes and act all oldschool, shall we" sense of the word. In my holy opinion of course.

Now, from that list, I really love Winter, Disembowelment, Shining, Esoteric and The Angelic Process. Especially the first two are of the type that makes you realize what sick music can achieve. And also what heaviness means.
Dangerboner - 12.02.2009 at 07:49  
I think NIN's The Downward Spiral would be a good addition to the Drugs, Depression, and Decline category. It's a concept album that starts high and ends low - I always feel like shit after listening to it, but in a good way

Well, it's not THAT extreme musically - even if I see your point.
But sure, Closer is just completely sick & twisted
Kurimus - 14.02.2009 at 22:15  
When I first read this I got all hyped out and when I read this again, I stay all hyped out
You introduced me to many new and great bands and established my desire for some interesting releases.
Most notably I was infected with craving for Acid Bath, Diapsiquir, The Angelic Process and Mysticum.. The downside (There has to be
is that they turned out to be rather hard to find if not almost impossible..

Muchos gracias for all the nice replies. It took a long time to finish this article (although that was partially due to my own laziness), but seeing all these grateful replies certainly makes it worth it. Proof that sharing awesome music can really be a great thing.

For all the fans: I'm working on a volume two. I can't promise anything, as it's still in the very first phase (band/album selection) but it'll probably turn out to be a wider version of this one. Estimated release date: Summer. (I hope I'm not going to pull a Wintersun on ya.)

Yeah! a second version!
If that version is even half as good as this one it'll be awesome anyway.

The only album i've heard form this list is Silencer-Death-Pierce Me and it was like Katatonia -dance of December souls being melancholied a thousand times.Its like the album has it's own soul a sick,depressing,misanthropic, tortured soul dying fro its salvation but it can't, cause it's forever trapped in hell

Meh.... it's nowhere... I've worked on it for a while, but eventually found out I couldn't compile as many earthshattering albums anymore (that are completely or slightly unknown) and didn't feel like writing an article on only a few albums or on a lot of albums, but of lesser quality.

I have been working on something I've called The Corrupted Chronicles, but process is very, very, very slow and I doubt anyone will actually find it interesting.

To be honest, I had forgotten about my intentions to write #2. I'll have a look through my collection this weekend, maybe I'll be able to find enough albums now.
Stigmatized - 04.09.2010 at 14:20  
Nice to see a mention of Winter's "Into Darkness" album. Truly one of the best drum sounds ever on that album.

I've always seen The Angelic Process' WSWS album as almost uplifting. The use of the human voice on that album is unmatched on anything I've heard.

The releases mentioned by Coffins, Esoteric, Tyranny, Shining, Hjarnidaudi, Disembowelment, Acid Bath, Skepticism are all excellent is different ways, nice write-up on those.

Lucas, I am interested in you Corrupted Chronicles


Ah, thanks. At the moment I'm quite concerned whether or not I'll actually be able to finish it, ever. I've been working on it for two years now, but usually with months in between of no progress at all, and it doesn't look like I am ever getting closer at all, haha.
!J.O.O.E.! - 05.09.2010 at 17:58  
Dunno how I missed this article but that really is the most badass list of monstrously downbeat, hideously nasty and disgustingly grim collection of miserable soundtracks I've yet seen.
