Arising from the ashes of early extreme metal acts like Sodom,Celtic Frost and Slaughterlord this Kansas band created a unique,raw,and punishing style of extreme metal.Rather then following the trends in extreme metal at the time,the band forged their own path. Original ,but pure to the ideals and aesthetic layed down before them by their influences. This was like taking some kind of twisted alien variation of death and thrash,adding in ferocious black metal vocals and raw bone crushing production that still complimented the highly intricate but barbaric music the band played.The band has a very strong cult status and members continued on to such bands as Angelcorpse,Ares Kingdom,Revenge,and Vulpecula.This band also has by far the best lyrics I've ever read.Pete Helmkamp shows that their is much more to death and black metal then sodomy and carnage(not that theres anything wrong with that).I strongly suggest all their releases.Myspace

THE EDGE OF FOREVER
WE STAND ON A CONSTANT THRESHOLD OF
A QUANTUM HIERARCHY, UNIVERSAL AND PURE
THE ECHO AMID SILENCE AN EPOCH FROM ANTIQUITY
OF RED-SHIFTING MATTER, FINITE YET UNBOUNDED
THE ETHEREAL NOMENCLATURE OF GRANDEUR, ON HIGH

WHERE THE RELATIVE IS IRRELEVANT
AND IMMENSITY IS ETERNITY
FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN
YET, THE UNIVERSE ENCOMPASSES AND ENGULFS
EVEN, ALMOST, INFINITY AS AN ATOM

AND I SAW ETERNITY THE OTHER NIGHT
THE UNVANQUISHED BLACK SPLENDOR
OF THE EDGE OF FOREVER
WHERE OUR CONSCIENCE AND COMPREHENSION
FAIL FROM FRAILTY

YET, NINE WORLDS I REMEMBER
A COMMUNITY OF MATTER
AND, BY THOUGHT, I COMPREHEND OUR WORLD
HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE AS OLD AS I
AND ALL THINGS ARE ONE

II.PERPETUAL
THROUGH THE EYES OF NIGHT
WE SEE AN INTIMATION
OF A FRAIL EXISTENCE
A FABRIC, AND A VOID
WHERE THE GREATEST
HAVE GREATER STILL

ON OUTWARD, AND UPWARDS
SPIRALING, FOREVER
ARE ASCENTS, DESCENTS
PERPETUAL

SEEING FAR ENOUGH
TO BE BLINDED BY DARKNESS
GRASP, YET NEVER REACH
A BASTION ETERNAL
BOUNDARIED ONLY BY CONSCIENCE
AND A FLACCID UNDERSTANDING
ATHANASIA IN ALL AGES
IN ALL DIRECTIONS
IN ALL MINDS

FILLED WITH ELEGANT TRUTHS,
AND PRISTINE ILLUSIONS,
STRETCH OUT YOUR EYES
WHERE THE GREATEST
HAVE GREATER STILL
PERPETUAL

Strange, always a band that I would like, on paper...but never got fully into them! Whats a good place to start? All I have are songs here and there
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

You can't really go wrong with any of the material. I can send you all their full lengths via email if you want.I would agree that Stillbirth Machine is a great place to start though.I have a shirt and lp coming in the mail soon, so stoked! Order From Chaos is one of those bands that just get better and better with every listen.

Much better band than Revenge or Angelcorpse. Pete Helmkamp is still a twat though.

These guys fucking slay. High intensity, constant direction, and pure out there wildness. It was an absolute blessing to be able to see them live way back in the day, then once again for their mini reunion show just a few weeks back.

Don't you mean Pete Helmkamp?(He's also in Revenge). I like Vulpecula allot more then Ares Kingdom i must say.The spacey atmosphere does more for me then the thrashier vibe that AK has. Stillbirth Machine has such a crazy production job, always reminded me of Horrified by Repulsion. VG I'm so jealous of you gahhh!

It's way heavier(production wise) and does'nt have much material in it. Way more crazy occult noise sections as well.Though i think i like the An Ending In Fire version of Tenebrae better.It's the same quality though so you'll probs dig it. What i love about OFC is that they literally get better with every listen.

This band = godly lyrics


II) Oracle: Gnosis Spermatikos

Black chaos expanding
Ouroboros circles in pursuit of itself
Beneath entropic oceanic abyss
A paradox convulses the universe
Genesis- a gravid flourish of life
Protoplasmic sparks (kindle) and Infuriate Flame
Febrile brilliance fine points of light
Phosphorescence moves into Man

Unleash subjecting truths in sacred words
ignite the dominion of absurdity
Fire and sword imperium darkness pale
Irradiances flourish where compelled to shine
Deluge- Tenebrae sweeps in on mute limbs
Astride the Plateau glimpse the rising gloom
Acknowledge the nihilism (of ordered procession)
The drowning caress of black swirling waters

Sacrosanct (man as microcosm)
Four temperaments (fuse) -statuesque Entity
The fortitude of a pristine creature
Transcend tyranny- Quintessential Power

The Scorpion beneath the upturned stone
The Snake invisible in the grass
With fangs He protrudes from a scornful smile
Watches your fortress wash away like dust

Horus ablaze against a setting of Fear
Kingly halo (four tiered earth) at his feet
Sapient Eye illuminates the fleeting staircase
Ascent of deliverance- Invincibility

I am He
(The Crowned and Conquering One)
Conqueror of Fear

He is the refuge towards which you crawl
Yet as poison Fear has tainted your wine
Let fly the arrow marking you for death
He laughs- He represents Foreverness

As an act of penance you mortify your flesh
Shivering for blood wept out as joy
Amassed Silence ruptures to devour
Tenebrae ushers in the sickened shroud...


III) Epilogue: The Deluge

Fel Draconum vinum corum
Et venenum Aspidum insanabile

(Their wine is the poison of Dragons
And the cruel venom of Asps)

So pray (...) for death to procreate
Poisoning as it falls
A merciless cleansing
Intoxicating Silence among the ranks
Dark waters cold and pallid
Black dawn arise- asphyxiate
As the swineherd
Suffocates...

Draconis

I'm a Nazi, baby

My copy of Stillbirth is my most prized possession. And that sounds amazing Strangles,i will definately require that.I find this band to habve one of the most unique but well contruscted sound ever,the riffs get so groovy at times but remain totally savage.And as mentiomned before,the lyrics really paint a picture.

Still want to get into these guys. Started with Stillbirth Machine and it didn't do a lot for me, though it was a while ago. Should i go with that again or is there a better album?
#30
Best starting album is An Ending In Fire,the production and how chaotic Stillbirth is takes some time for people to get. AEIF is a bit more "mature", and has slightly cleaner production.

These don't sound like very good ambitions when driving...Judas Priest makes people want to go 200 mph, and Realm of Chaos is now an album for ramming shit. You are dangerous, dangerous people.

Hopefully it will be pushed back to 2014, I can probably afford the shipping by then.
