The End Of The World

Godkiller started as a fairly standard one man Black metal band, but by 1998 had morphed into something else entirely. The End of the World shows this Monaco entity doing a less aggressive Ceremony of Opposites-era Samael thing. This CD didn't leave my player for weeks when it was released.

Industrial inflected BM with the balls to drop a harpsichord line two minutes into the album. Wow. Thanks for this.

Good stuff, listend to it quite a bit when it was released too. However, as far I know, the guy's from Monaco, not Malta. A Black Metal album from Monaco... Back then we thought we had heard it all...

A couple of boring question for you Aesop:

When starting out on drums, which was more appealing - metal or punk?

I've watched some Ludicra live on Youtube and seen that you're playing a single kick - how the fuck do you play that fast? What exercises do you do to keep your legs in shape?

This calls for a road trip to Malta. Thanks!

@ Fausto, you are right. I fucked up.

@ Sephim, my first band was a punk band called SLA, but my appreciation for metal has always been there in some capacity. I use a double pedal (iron cobra), and usually walk on my heels a bit before playing to avoid shin splints.

Yes! This is amazing!

I hope Ludicra (or Agalloch!) play NY again soon. I missed your show and am still sad.

Great album. I had not thought about this one in a while. I would play this album quite a bit when it first came out. Definitely gave me a Samael vibe too, and that is why I loved it.

Also wanted to say great blog! Your chronicling of Les Legiones Noir is awesome. It has got me into doing my own research on the group/bands.

If you remember, tell Ross Sewage that Adam from Fog/Indianapolis says hello. Mention Vince Cook's friend if I don't ring a bell.
