Lets talk all things Mad Max and, less abundant, all things William Gibson in Metal format!

These two sounds lend themselves so well to Metal it's quite obvious why we have so many Thunderdomes and motor gang warfare and gasoline explosions out there for Metal, but where has all the William Gibson gone? Impress me with a Metal product that invokes the Cyber Punk atmosphere and I will personally send you a gift via mail! No joke!

Anyways I specialize in god damn ****ing apocalypse Metal, so I'm going to start dropping bombs from Hell!

Did you just hear that? That was Venom making love to an irradiated Mad Max from behind!

Fenriz probably worships this right about now.

I've nothing to bring to the table that you wouldn't know, but here's a few obvious ones for all to hear:

...and some NWOBHM. While not exactly thematically spot-on, I find the feel and attitude to be appropriate.

I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

Sadistic Exekution is so god damn excellent. A lot of the more try-hard "chaos" sounding bands out there can take a lesson from their assault! Legitimate "turn the garage into hell" sound to be heard from them. Never got a chance to meet the guys unfortunately.

I love that underneath all the fukk in a lot of their music you can still find the song writing core that is so essential to make more straight forward metal so memorable. Like in their self titled song posted its really easy to make out the "song" underneath everything. Fukkin chaos.

The verse riff on Elektrokution is easily the catchiest they've ever written. It's so belligerent

I'm digging all of this. Voivod would be the obvious one (for me), but everything else is new to me. Where did you guys find all these releases?

Speaking of William Gibson, I'm finishing up Neuromancer for the first time. Great novel.

Can't really explain my love of Mad Max, Ghosts...of The Civil Dead, and movies of that ilk. I guess growing up in a lush green, normal environment made me yearn for arid chaos. Cool thread.

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.

Hit the gym and did some oly lifts and deadlifts to Sadistik Exekution's K.A.O.S today. Had me more pumped than i've been in months. The really ****ing madness sections sometimes even remind me of SYL haha. The energy is ridiculous.

Yeah definitely, I have nothing but love for City and Alien. I had been wasting away these past two months and finally manned up and lifted some heavy shit, felt good.

This has me excited as a school girl;

Alongside Star Citizen, that's probably my most anticipated upcoming game at the moment. Cyberpunk shit by the makers of The Witcher? "Shut up and take my money!"

Any of you guys read Riddley Walker? It's not quite cyberpunk but it's damn good post-nuclear-apocalypse literature.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Fantastic. I just finished reading vol. 1 of Akira while listening to the Blade Runner soundtrack, and now this thread. My contribution would be Aspid-Where The Night, but I'm far too lazy to attempt to put up a link with this phone.

I feel this thread needs an update in light of the latest Mad Max spectacle.

Holy shit this is exactly what I need right now.

Why didn't I know this thread existed?

I don't have much to contribute thematically, but this gives me that vibe https://youtu.be/2mw-yAfVd5U
