Terrorizer Magazine - Norway - special issue - May 2014 - promo cover pic

As reported on the Terrorizer Facebook page:

Terrorizer’s Secret History of Norway is out now! We bring you the history of all that transpired in that famous black metal scene of the early 1990s – the music, the mayhem, the murders and the controversy. We get the oral history on what it was actually like to be a part of that scene, as told by key players like The True Mayhem‘s Necrobutcher, Darkthrone‘s Fenriz and Satyricon‘s Satyr, to name but a few.

But don’t think black metal is all that Norway has to offer, as we also explore everything from avant-garde weirdness to death metal destruction and the fury of Oslo punk, as well as bringing you our list of essential Norwegian albums.

SNAKES And METAL = Some Very Intense And Memorable Album Covers!

Whitesnake - Lovehunter - promo cover pic - #77077

Snakes And Metal - What makes snakes so attractive to Metal? It must be the biblical reference/story of Satan taking the form of a serpent in the Garden Of Eden. No? Maybe it’s the snake being profiled throughout history as simply… evil? No? What about many, many snakes being downright intimidating and venomous? Yes? Regardless the reasoning, snakes are undoubtedly badass; and Metal is badass.

I chose to pick some of my favorite Metal album covers that depict, in various grand forms, the almighty, evil and often times misunderstood snake. I surely hope y’all like the album covers I’ve chosen. For certain, there are probably one million other album covers out there with a snake or two on them, I just cannot list them all! However, feel free to share which snake themed album cover you dig and which did not show up here, via comment.

Whitesnake - classic logo!

The Whitesnake Lovehunter album cover (at top of post) is my all-time favorite snake themed album cover. No, no, no… it’s not because of the gal’s naked butt either; although I’ve never complained about it. I first fell in love with this album cover as a graphic design student, many light years ago, back in college. I absolutely cherish the artwork of Lovehunter and countless other works of world-renowned painter/illustrator Chris Achilleos.

WARNING: If you suffer from Ophidiophobia or ophiophobia, which is the abnormal fear of snakes, feel free to leave and visit an ABBA or U2 website.

Satyricon - Volcano - promo cover pic - #77590

SATYRICON – VOLCANO

Released back in 2002, this fifth album from the powerful Satyricon depicts a snake that looks 100% evil. Pure evil. A perfect Satyricon album cover! It’s as if this snake will leap from the cover and bite my face off. I love that! Plus, I love this album and band.

Pantera - The Great Southern Trendkill - promo cover pic - #660805

PANTERA – THE GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL

Released back in 1996, The Great Southern Trendkill is another album I infinitely love. PANTERA is personified to perfection with this snake, cause it looks extremely pissed-off and ready to strike! This snake doesn’t seem like it wants to f*$K around; it looks like it wants to kill and eat anything in its path. Neat.

Fight Or Flight - A Life By Design? - promo cover pic - #22892

FIGHT OR FLIGHT – A LIFE BY DESIGN?

Released in 2013, A Life By Design by the Metal/Hard Rock supergroup Fight Or Flight is a tremendous album! I wish I had room to put it on my best of list, from last year. The album cover depicts a creepy, creepy snake that has syringes for fangs! Ouch!! Plus, that melancholy driven corn field as a back-drop, only worsens the nightmare for me. Excellent!

Alice Cooper "Constrictor" X-Large Album Pic!!

ALICE COOPER – CONSTRICTOR

Compare this snake on Alice Cooper’s Constrictor cover and it doesn’t look to be as mean-spirited as the others on this list. However, this snake is wrapping itself around Alice Cooper’s neck and face rather well. A very commercial Alice Cooper album from 1986, I do enjoy listening to it for its over-the-top mid-80′s MTV and Arena charm.

Escape The Fate - This War Is Ours - promo cover pic - #660303

ESCAPE THE FATE – THIS WAR IS OURS

This sophomore album from Escape The Fate I don’t own. I do own their last two releases. With that out-of-the-way, This War Is Ours, from 2008, has snakes bookending their band logo in a subtle, yet very cool way. Sometimes, less snake is more. The overall artwork is solid as hell too.

_____________________________

That concludes this Snakes and Metal list! Thanks for taking part! Perhaps y’all dug it? If not, please feel free to pull out your Barbara Streisand CD’s and crank ‘em up to the point of constipation. Metal be thy name.

Chthonic - promo band pic - 2013 - #928

Taiwanese avant metal ensemble, CHTHONIC, are readying to kick off a massive European trek supporting Norwegian metal titans, Satyricon. Slated to begin on November 7th in Copenhagen, the extensive journey marks the band’s first performances on European soil since the release of their latest studio album, Bú-Tik, and will also mark their first-ever shows in Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Spain, Italy, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Luxembourg!

“We are looking forward to the tour in Europe, especially because we will be visiting some cities for the first time,” said the bassist Doris Yeh. “CHTHONIC’s music is full of Oriental martial art spirits and traditional music; we are confident that the blend of traditional elements and heavy metal could bring some very different sensations to those audiences.”

Meanwhile, CHTHONIC have also been nominated for seven Golden Indie Music Awards, including best album, best band, best performance, and best musician. CHTHONIC will depart for their European quest following their participation in the award ceremony.

Chthonic - Bu-Tik - promo cover pic - 2013

CHTHONIC released their seventh studio recording, Bú-Tik,in North America via Spinefarm Records US on June 25, 2013. Bú-Tik was recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtson, who also worked on 2011′s critically lauded Takasago Army full-length. Called “a masterful and elegant tradition served underneath soaring thrash-influenced guitars, pummeling drums and a vocal performance that is absolutely stellar from an overlooked vocalist,” by About.com, Bú-Tik is centered around the story of the 228 Massacre, the Bú-Tik Palace and the Mirror Of Retribution, and highlights what bassist Doris Yeh describes as “righteous violence, justifiable defense, and the armed spirits.” The cover image depicts the fighting spirit of a girl with albinism.

To order, Bú-Tik point your browser HERE. 

Critical Praise:

“‘Next Republic’ and ‘Supreme Pain for the Tyrant’ demand your attention from the start, only to blow you away with an epic and memorable chorus. The soaring emotional register of ‘Between Silence and Death’ is unforgettable. And the female vocal parts, though used sparingly, sound exquisite in ‘Set Fire to the Island’ and ‘Defenders of Butik Palace.’ Bú-Tik is a solid album which will earn CHTHONIC many new symphonic oriental fans without alienating the band’s long-time following. 8/10″ – Metal Injection

“…a solid album full of epic moments. Fans of symphonic or melodic death metal are likely to enjoy it, as Chthonic have yet again delivered a unique and memorable album that no other band could have made.” – HeavyBlogIsHeavy

“Symphonic black metal gets an oriental overhaul for a fantastic result.4/5″ – Metal Underground

Satyricon - Self-Titled - promo cover pic

Satyricon, the self-titled eighth studio album by Norwegian black masters SATYRICON, has debuted at #12 on the U.S.A. Billboard Heatseekers chart and #30 on the Hard Music chart.

Other world chart entries include: #1 – Norway; #6 – Finland; #23 – Germany; and #26 – Australia.

“SATYRICON fans have shown that there is still room for authentic music with an analog sound,” states frontman Satyr. “They have shown it to the degree that it has given us formidable chart positions in very competitive markets and in Norway a #1 record. It is the most important record that we have done and now our fans are clearly sending out a very strong message by getting behind it. We are very thankful and proud.”
