Collimatrix's Terrible Music Thread

Recommended Posts

Crack Magazine, (which is not the same thing as Cracked), has this excellent summary of the history of Satanic motifs in music.  It's a good little piece, but it skips two things I would have mentioned.  The first is the story of Nicolò Paganini, who in his time had a sort of proto-Robert-Johnson myth surrounding him, and less forgivably, occult-themed hard rock acts like Coven.

 

Coven is the missing link between Sympathy for the Devil and Black Sabbath.  In fact, they had a song called "Black Sabbath," as well as a bassist named Greg "Oz" Ozbourne (Which is not the same thing as Ozzy Osbourne).

 

 

Musically, they're typical of psychodelic California bands of the time.  If Led Zeppelin, with its heavy guitar blues songs about vikings, is proto-metal, then Coven is proto-proto-metal.  But their album art was pure fucking metal:

Incidentally, Coven is credited with introducing the sign of the horns to rock music, which is quite a brag.  

 

In a similar vein, but of more recent vintage is The Devil's Blood, from the Netherlands:
 

 

Sadly, they appear to have disbanded after a brief, but brilliant career.

"Jefferson airplane but about Satan" was the pithy version I heard once.

Going through the thirty odd pages of this thread is proving to be a lot of fun!  :D

 

Having a hard time figuring out if this thread is actually for terrible music though (the superb song in the first post strongly suggests not), anyhow here's the song that ruined Theresa May's day:

It's mainly an excuse for us to post stuff we actually like while being able to pretend that we're all too detached and ironic to have real feelings for things.

Well, that and posting genuinely bad music.

For the thread OP and namesake, these are one and the same. :D

True, but Colli is also a ball of ironic detachment so tightly wound that it produces a sort of black hole of affected prose.

So it's not surprising that this concept becomes an ouroboros to him.

I believe I've seen this, or something similar. Mick Gordon is a legend.

If you are talking about Doom: Behind the music 2 short videos, than not really - here he is explain exactly how he did things and show steps to get to the sound he wanted.

It's part of the cult indoctrination.  You end up memorizing small personal details about the posters, and thus get drawn inextricably into the web, and feel reluctant to ever leave because of all the effort you've put in.

You learn that @Oedipus Wreckx-n-Effect's blood type is O negative, and that @Tekky is insecure about his height and athletic prowess and will do anything to improve, including getting hit in the face with a volleyball for two minutes straight, that @LostCosmonaut loves cats even though they continuously bite him, and that @Toxn ghost-wrote S.M. Stirling's Draka series.

Soon, you feel like you really know these people and that you owe them some sort of reciprocal hospitality.  Then, before you know it, I'm sleeping on your couch, demanding that you cook me dinner and give me rides in old WWII airplanes, like I did to @T___A that one time.

Today I learned I need to keep Oedipus around as a blood donor.

I thought you shot him back in 2005 and have been keeping his corpse on ice ever since for complicated tax fraud purposes?

Hahaha, I wish. I'd be substantially richer than I am now if I had.

My current cat is actually pretty docile.

Putting on my necro-psychologist's hat; I think your issues stem from your sublimated desire for your chosen psychopomp to release you from the crawling hell that is undeath.

Thanatopic urges underly at least half of the psychological issues of the undead.

      I start this thread about music of Romania. Not sure if belongs here as will be more about older music than recent one but if it is more appropriate in the history section please move it there.
       
      Without further ado, I'll start with a classic folk-rock album of Romanian rock band Phoenix - Muguri de fluier (Flute buds) - 1974. After they run away from Romania they named themselves Transylvania Phoenix despite the fact that the band originated in Banat region. Obviously they were banned by Communist censorship but after 1989 their music exploded, especially in university environment. 
       
      Muguri de fluier album was perhaps the most played of all their creations due to its peculiar sound inspired from folklore ranging from Southern Balkans to gypsy music or Central European music. It is considered to be the best of their albums. 
       
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lhzNEPHTAk&list=PLYUvzRPuJpOlj2lwCMp_7T5qEeN1oMqFE
       
      LE: about full album, only managed to link it this way: "Phoenix - Mugur De Fluier (1974) [HQ]"
       
      Few words about each song.
       
      Lasa, Lasa! (Leave it, Leave it!) it is just an interlude between songs that appeared on The Immortals soundtrack (1974)
       
      Pavel Chinezu, leat 1479   - about a local hero, guitar solo a bit a la Rory Gallagher 
       
      Strunga (The Gorge) - also for the soundtrack of Immortals movie. 
       
      Andrii Popa (name of a famous Hajduk) - song about an Hajduk known to free people enslaved by Ottomans. 
       
      Mica Tiganiada (Small Gypsiliad)  - dulcimer, bongos, violins, a very complex music inspired from gypsy folklore well sustained by rock instruments
       
      Ochii negri, Ochi de tigan (Black eyes, gypsy eyes)- an archaic sound which was initially considered to develop a rock opera based on it. 
       
      Muzica si muzichia  (Music and diminutive for music which is a slang word that I have no idea how to translate it, sing-song maybe or musicy as spending an Y is often taken as a diminutive)  - this song conserve the best the character of the music from Banat, the home region of this band with alternative measures and broken rhythm that reminds peasants' fairs music with oriental and Balkanic influences
       
      Mugur de fluier (Flute buds) - with Romanian  shepherd flute integrated between rock instruments, gives the name of the album; some say it's inspired from Christmas Song of Jethro Tull from Living in the past 
       
      Anule, hanule (Oh year, oh inn) - last two songs anticipate more their future songs, closer to hard-rock 
      Dansul Codrilor (Dance of woods)
       
      Songs from this album featured on the soundtrack of Nemuritorii (Immortals) movie. You can watch it here if you like with English subs.
