Black Metal Friday: “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” by Behemoth
Ides Bergen   |  

Behemoth Band Photo

Behemoth is the biggest rock band to ever emerge from Poland. Over the course of 23 years and ten albums they have established themselves as one of the most important and continually vital blackened death metal bands in the world. Behemoth leader Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski is a huge celebrity in his homeland, having successfully fought charges of blasphemy for ripping up a bible at a concert, recovered from leukemia, wrote a best-selling biography, and dated supermodels along the way.

Earlier this year, Behemoth issued their tenth studio album, The Satanist. It has been widely hailed as a masterpiece and the band’s magnum opus. It is sure to be sitting very high up on many critics’ year-end “best of” lists (including mine).

Here with the uncensored video for the first single from The Satanist is Behemoth with “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel.”

Sodom formed in 1981 and played a pivotal role in the rise of thrash metal. They are widely considered to be (along with Kreator, Tankard, and Destruction) to be one of the big four of German thrash. Through numerous lineup changes and stylistic experiments, Sodom have also had a vast influence on the genres of death metal and black metal.

They have returned to their thrash roots and despite the fact that bassist/lead vocalist Tom Angelripper is the only remaining original member, continue to issue bone-crushing new material. Sodom have released 14 studio albums, three live albums, two compilations, and on November 28th they will issue Their sixth EP titled Sacred Warpath.

Here they are with the official video for “City of God” from their excellent 2006 self-titled album Sodom.

Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

Walt Disney Records’ Legacy Collection’s excellent streak of soundtracks continues with its August 2014 release that commemorated the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins, considered by many critics as one of Walt Disney’s greatest achievements. Its Oscar-winning song, “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” and the other cheerful tunes and score are as ingrained in our minds as Julie Andrews‘ and Dick Van Dyke‘s unforgettable performances.

This new CD set remarkably integrates nearly every musical element of the film possible across three packed discs. The Legacy Collection: Mary Poppins is even sweeter than a spoonful of sugar.

‘The Wild Bunch’ and ‘Midnight Cowboy’ Turn 45 This Year
Stoogeypedia   |  

The Wild Bunch

Two landmark motion pictures have hit the 45th anniversary milestone this year, and both of them were instrumental in helping usher in the kind of norms, sensibilities, and somewhat radical attitudes that were beginning to burgeon in Tinseltown as the 1960s gave way to the 1970s.

One of them, The Wild Bunch, took screen violence and the western narrative to an entirely different level; the other, Midnight Cowboy, not only became the first X-rated motion picture to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it also exemplified a kind of realistic film in which the narrative doused its characters in strife, pain, and struggle, and didn’t offer a seamless resolution at its denouement, but rather the contrary. Its kind of downer tale also became a style and staple for many of the films which followed it into the mid 1970s such as Scarecrow, The Last Detail, etc.
