sounds just like it looks
Things you need to know about Blacholicus: They are young, they rip hard, they play stoney NWOBHM with punky female vocals and there is nothing broootaly-tru-kvlt-melo-blackened-tech-death-core about them. Their sound is bare bones, their songwriting is straightforward and most importantly, their true and undying love for metal beams through your speakers. I listen to these records and I’m thinking, man these guys are awesome, fuck they love metal. I love metal too, I bet we’d be bros.
The metal spirit is strong in this band and the riffage is totally worthy. Like Witchfinder General, the execution is endearingly sloppy and the low-fi quality of the recording adds a raw authenticity to their sound. They don’t hide behind triple layer rhythm guitars or beat detective drum shredding. Their sound is exposed, vulnerable and unashamed. So if you’re not into epic, videogame esc, lofi guitar harmonies, then you should probably go listen to something that’s more tailored to your douche bag tastes. Like Suicide Silence.
Added bonus: Blackholicus is totally bonable. For instance, a lot of girls wont be that stoked if you put on Gorgoroth for a bone down sesh. You bone down to Girlschool, early Scorps, or even Pagan Altar (for slow, doom humping), but the fact remains that the majority of our metal catalogue is not appropriate for romantic conquests. Blackholicus however is completely bedroom safe and getting your girlfriend high and boning to this record is probably the coolest thing you will do all day.
Here is a link to their first record, Variations in Death Minor from 2006. Their new record, Megaforte, just came out and it SMOKES. Buy it.
