Black Metal Friday: Emperor “The Loss & Curse of Reverence”
Ides Bergen   |  

Emperor Band Photo

Emperor is one of the very cornerstones of black metal. Led by musical visionaries Ishan and Samoth, this band pretty much singlehandedly invented symphonic black metal. Bands such as Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, and Ne Obliviscaris can trace a direct lineage to this groundbreaking outfit from Bergen, Norway.

Emperor’s debut album, In The Nightside Eclipse, turned 20 years old last year and the band celebrated with a string of high profile headlining slots at festivals across the world. Ishan remains adamant that there will be no new Emperor music as he is currently riding high on the success of his solo works, but die-hards such as myself will always remain hopeful.

From Emperor’s massively influential 1997 sophomore record, Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, this is the official video for the track”The Loss & Curse of Reverence.”

Disney In Depth: Disneynature’s ‘Monkey Kingdom’ Review
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

Monkey Kingdom
Directors: Mark Linfield and Alastair Fothergill
Narrator: Tina Fey
Disneynature
Rated G | 82 Minutes
Release Date: April 17, 2015

Lions and sharks and bears, oh my! Disneynature’s collection of films have chronicled the stories of these creatures — no central focus on tigers just yet, I’m afraid — but until now, this documentary label had yet to venture into a society dominated by toque macaque monkeys.

Practically every April brings a new Disneynature film to theaters, and Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom embodies the series’ awe, compassion and discovery in a neatly wrapped (just under an) hour-and-a-half experience. It’s entertaining, yes, and as documentaries aim to inform, you will indeed walk away learning many, many fascinating facts that you can bring up at your next party.

Thrashback Thursday: Nailbomb “Guerrillas”
Ides Bergen   |  

Nailbomb Band Photo

Nailbomb was a short-lived heavy metal supergroup consisting of core members Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy, Killer Be Killed) and Alex Newport (Fudge Tunnel) along with a veritable who’s who of metal in their live lineup.

The group only managed to issue one studio recording, the 1994 industrial thrash masterpiece Point Blank and their sole live performance occurred at the Dynamo Open Air festival in the Netherlands in 1995. The show was recorded and was later released as the live album Proud to Commit Commercial Suicide. The footage below is for the track “Guerrillas” from that very performance.
