Hatred

Draugar is a bizarre one-man Black Metal band from San Francisco. From Which Hatred Grows was Draugar's first full length release. A bit clumsy and meandering at times but I think this adds to the general uneasiness that sets Draugar apart from the scores of generic, corpse-painted tykes who insist on making black metal in the forests of their bedrooms as if they were characters from a fucking Maurice Sendak book.

that's a pretty ridiculous cover, though

Man, I love this stuff. All those fucked up keys.

NICKTHRONE said...

does anyone have "weathering the curse" or "realizations obscured"? the only other one i've found is "silence and suffering"

not to mention Tim is a great tattoo artist-DR. PHIBES

Umm does this mean hatred grows from his nostrils?

shipwreck said...

this shit is awesome!

Nick, Weathering The Curse was released on Moribund and should be easy enough to find. I have the older demos, but they don't move me like this album.

Thanks for the comment!

Been following Cosmic Hearse since you started it, but just now got onto Blogspot myself.

deeyamnnn! Black Room Bed Metal guys got served by Aesop.

I think that quote of yours should be passed around by everyone who ever had their time wasted by a bad drum machine and a squeaky little girl masquerading as a satanic dude.

some day i hope to have my own bed room Black metal band, i won't be masquerading as some satanic bed master, but i have aspirations that my retard art will make the hearse. Thanks Aesop

Aesop said...

If it's retarded enough it will.

hey, whenever I would set up to record in that bedroom, I wasn't just where the Wild Things were, I WAS the Wild Things. Shit, I got a boner just thinkin' bout them good ol' days.

Speaking of Draugar, do you have the “Destroyers from the Western Skies (As Night Devours the Sun)” comp on Killzone records (2005)? Been trawling all over for it...

Aesop said...

Is that the Judas Iscariot tribute?

Patrick said...

you can find that comp at the Dark Horizon webstore: http://secure.mycart.net/catalogs/catalog.asp?prodid=4491909&showprevnext=1

derek said...

No not Judas Iscariot tribute, it was comp of West Coast Black Metal with Drauger, Leviathan, Xasthur and others.

Aesop said...

Oh, never knew of it. Will seek it out.

Aesop said...

Oh, i think the western skies means the Western hemisphere actually. Cobalt, Teratism, and Kult of Azazel are not from the West Coast.

shipwreck said...

what other bands are like this style of black metal, other than leviathan ans xasthur?

Aesop said...

Check out Necrite:

That Necrite screams! "Destroyers from the Western Skies" is posted on metalarea.org, that one-stop-shopping zone in Siberia somewhere...
