Kelowna black metal band Nihilistic Death Cult join Terence and Erik to discuss their shitty old demo and new one that will be recorded in their basement “studio”. The new 4 song demo should sound like Blasphemy or early Black Witchery.
Nihilistic Death Cult podcast was definitely one of my favorite recordings so far. We had a wide range and varied discussion that went much deeper than previous podcasts.

Craft Beer “Metal” Labels
The Driftwood label Erik mentioned that looks like a metal cover. This is not one of our sponsors. Our sponsor is Lighthouse Brewing Company.

RCMP call’s Batman Presence a Distraction
A man dressed up as Batman pulled up in a jacked up truck decked out with Batman decals tried to help the RCMP. They turned him away and called his presence a distraction.
No Endgame Spoilers!
The theory has been buzzing around the internet for awhile now and we get the answer to the ultimate question: Does Ant-Man go up Thanos’ butt and cause him to explode? Terence answers YES HE DOES!
Black n Roll/Crust Punk
Crust or crust punk is a genre influenced by both English punk rock and extreme metal. Influence is usually drawn from earlier bands of both genres such as the punk bands Crass or Discharge and metal bands like Venom, Hellhammer, Bathory, Celtic Frost and Motorhead.
The results can vary but is common to have a black metal vibe or atmosphere to it due to the stripped down production, riffing style and speed. Vocals commonly can be screamed or screeched rather than growled or sung. Lyrical content can be bleak and nihilistic yet politically engaged involving such topics as nuclear war, oppressive states, anti-fascism, anti-religion and rebellion.
Poser Crushing Caveman Riffs
Have you ever heard poser crushing caveman riffs? Metal bands that incorporate the worst production and mixing possible to create what inevitably sounds like black noise. On the Nihilistic Death Cult podcast we discuss some of the bands that send us head first into the world of black noise.
Sarcofago was considered one of the war metal or black metal bands. The cover of their 1987 album that we discussed on the show can be seen in the image below.
Burning Churches in Norway
Christianity and churches have a long and brutal history in Norway. Black metal in Norway lead to the rise of church burnings and helped push the ideology of refusing Christianity and other established global religions.
Even though the infamous church burnings in Norway took place in the early 90’s we are seeing it happen in recent times too. This article covers recent events in Louisiana possibly influenced by black metal. Now whether it actually is or not is another story. It is only a small group of the subgenre that either support or advocate for those types of actions.
The burning of churches and black metal is linked to Varg Vikernes (single member of Burzum) who allegedly burned down 3 churches in the early 90’s.
We recommend watching the movie Lords of Chaos for a better idea of what happened though it isn’t exactly on point with the series of events it depicts.
WE DO NOT. We love music for what it is and how it makes us feel.
With a technology called georadar people are able to see what is below the earth in more clear photography to see exactly what is hidden beneath. For example a Viking boat burial has been uncovered (second article).
