Enthroned - _Regie Sathanas_
by: Adam Wasylyk (
I've never hid my love and passion for that lovable cartoon family The Simpsons. I've seen every episode at least five times (hell, when it comes on three times a day in my area, what's a guy to do?) and I consider myself quite knowledgeable on the topic. One scene I remember well took place in the Simpson home, where Homer is watching something on television but becomes angry and frustrated at what he's watching, causing him to hit the television and yell "Be more funny!". While listening to shit to review I often fantasize myself taking hold of one of the members and giving him a huge bitch slap, causing me to yell "play better music dammit!". Enthroned was one of those very bands, taking black metal to a new low with their monotonous playing while adding nothing to the already polluted genre. This album was in tribute to the ex-drummer who commited suicide last year (perhaps he was sick of playing bad metal?). I can only wish if I ever joined a band (yes, that's a stretch) and left it in a similar manner as this drummer, that someone wouldn't pay tribute to me in such a ridiculous and silly way. And people wonder why black metal is ridiculed by so many. This is the reason why, my friends.
