ITP V.017 UPDATE: BBL WITH MORE EXTREME METAL NEWS

ITP V.017 UPDATE: BBL WITH MORE EXTREME METAL NEWS












A quick statement, and a line in the sand: If your stalking ITP's V.017 author, or/and if you're homophobic, sexist, racist, an alcoholic, or drug addict/wingnut, you're reading the wrong blog, fuck off you retards before you get your ass kicked.



R.I.P. MALCOLM YOUNG, former rhythm guitarist and co-founder of Australian hard rock legends AC/DC who expired 11/18/2017 from an undisclosed form of dementia at 64.


https://www.alz.org/dementia/types-of-dementia.asp#frontotemporal



FROM AC/DC:
Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.
Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC.
With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.
As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man.
He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted.
He took great pride in all that he endeavored.
His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.

.
As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special.
He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever.
Malcolm, job well done.

Next week, ITP V.017 will post QUARTERLY (BEST OF SUMMER 2017 EXTREME METAL).

CHARLES MANSON: DEAD AT 83 (CELEBRATIONS BREAK OUT ALL OVER THE WORLD)

and GOOD RIDDANCE to mr. Scum CHARLES MANSON, hippie burnout, cult douche, mentally ill psycho, mass murderer, nazi trash.








If you you're not in the know, CHARLES MANSON is one of, (for his time and era) the most notorious U.S. mass murderers of all time. A former California  (mediocre) musician, with only a chance meeting with one of the BEACH BOYS.

In 1969, CHARLES MANSON masterminded (via conspiracy) the mass killings of Sharon Tate and six others via a counter culture cult commune, as he recruited Height Ashbury hippies.
MANSON was originally sentenced to death, as his sentence was commuted to life in prison as the death penalty was abolished in California (early 70's).
MANSON was denied parole over a dozen times. 

CHARLES MANSON is finally dead at 83, after many health , and social psychiatric problems. 

ITP V.017 EDITORS NOTE:  ..This dude lasted waaay too long.CHARLIE wasn't a surfer, nor a hippie nor a metal head. MANSON was a mentally ill drug addict, whom was "sent back where he came from", life institutionalized in prison, as he was too dangerous in a free world.
Perhaps in macabre (and let's face it, tasteless) humor, CHARLES MANSON  has been, and will be linked within pop culture, a failed musician as one would have to ask themselves "Trust the art and not the artist".

IN VAIN: STREAMING NEW TRACK "SEEKERS OF THE TRUTH" VIA BANDCAMP

Norwegian blackened/death metal warriors IN VAIN, via BANDCAMP, are streaming "SEEKERS OF THE TRUTH", a track from the bands anticipated new release "CURRENTS", due to be unleashed 1/26/2018 via INDIE RECORDINGS. 







IN VAIN unleashed "AENIGMA", 3/11/2013 via INDIE RECORDINGS.

FROM IN VAIN AND INDIE RECORDINGS:
IN VAIN TO RELEASE THEIR FOURTH ALBUM - CURRENTS // PRE-ORDER NOW

Pre-order In Vain’s new album Currents and new merch at https://goo.gl/oa2VnW

More than 10 years after their grand debut, In Vain returns with their fourth album Currents, on January 26th 2018.

The pioneers of progressive extreme metal return with a consummate and complete offering. Without question, Currents is the definite pinnacle of In Vain’s career so far. Unique, innovative and catchy compositions with longevity that merge elements from many different genres, whilst still maintaining a carefully balanced dynamic. In Vain retains a principal focus on solid songwriting with cleverness and an original edge. Top notch musicianship in all ranks and a sublime guest performance on drums by Baard Kolstad (Official). Add to that a stellar, organic production tweaked to perfection by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Katatonia, Devin Townsend, Kreator, etc) at Fascination Street Studios.

The album title, Currents, reflects on the colossal shifts and changes of our time. The present world is characterized by continental flows of people, traditions and cultures. Migration of people across continents and borders. Cultures merging. Dramatic shifts in lifestyle from one generation to the next. These are all currents - movements that distort old patterns, create tensions as well as new opportunities. These enduring shifts are some of the topics that In Vain addresses on Currents through a series of epic and monumental songs.

Currents also echoes In Vain’s musical landscape. Since its inception, the band has developed its own trademark sound through extensive exploration and seamless combination of musical genres. Currents goes to new extremes when it comes to further developing this approach. The music and lyrics of the album unite to form its own creative Current; A rich synthesis underlining the very idea of cultural and musical merging, and the album concept and artistic vision has been captured brilliantly by cover designer Costin Chioreanu (Paradise Lost, Enslaved, At The Gates, etc) and his stunning artwork.

The backdrop for the album has been a rigorous artistic and spiritual expedition across the world. Songwriter Johnar Håland comments: “Since the release of Ænigma we have been unknotting threads, followed traces, found disparities and drawn new parallels. In search of both lyrical and spiritual inspiration for Currents we embarked on a journey that took us across several continents. We have put the utmost of our hearts, souls and minds into Currents and we are sincerely grateful to everyone involved in this massive musical undertaking.” Singer Sindre Nedland adds: “Through all the experimentation, In Vain has always had a solid foundation in aggression and melody, and Currents sees these two extremes united in a way that feels unforced, and pretty damn authoritative at the same time. It has been a long and hard process, but the result is everything we hoped it would be: Catchy, intense and unusual.”

In Vain will release Currents in two editions:

The Clearing Path "Watershed Between Firmament and The Realm of Hyperborea" (Digipack CD)
Out November 2017
Gabriele Gramaglia, the young Italian artist behind SUMMIT (which debuted on I, Voidhanger Records in 2016), is back on the scene with his oldest project, THE CLEARING PATH and with a pivotal release enclosing the circle of the otherworldly concept begun with the previous full-length, “Watershed Between Earth and Firmament” (2015).
This time the music evolves in a way more complex opus which ranges from hellacious riffs and tremendous shrieks to atmospheric and meticulous progressions and passages of lucid insanity, exploring the most distant landscapes of the unknown cosmos and the most benighted and metaphysical aspects of the Universe, imprinting into the listener a profound sense of dismay and contemplation.
The result is “Watershed Between Firmament and The Realm of Hyperborea”, a powerful and relentless album, variegated and eclectic, yet organic and solid. A stellar work of extreme, dissonant metal madness, with ambient drifts and thoughtful soundscapes.

TRACKLIST
1. Ankhtkheperura in Thee (A Mysthycal Enlightment)
2. The Pillars of Creation
3. Stargazer Monolith
4. This Starway Will Carry Me Towards the Grandest Light

Total time 32:08
All music by Gabriele Gramaglia. Lyrics by Gabriele Gramaglia, in part inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy
Cover art by Altarofsorrow
Preview track coming soon.
