"Like an Everflowing Stream..."

" the lifesblood of slaughtered PCs, let the dice fall as they may." I've been in a very metal mood lately and some of you have expressed enthusiasm for my music posts so I'm opening the floodgates. This lyrics of the below song by Dismember (who are the best live death metal band I've ever seen) could be about the cycle of random, brutal death and new characters in a gritty, lethal D&D game.

Override the overture
Behold the overwhelming power
Trampled and [fucking] mangled
By the hordes of terror

The process of death is our fate to be
From the skies blood drips like rain
Tell me how I suffer, tell me how I'll die
My arms stretched out in eternal pain

The life that we knew drowned in the stream of death
The agony within tears my worthless being

By the blasphemous horror inside
Enter a world
Beyond this [fucking] global tomb

By the visions of things past and gone
My death arrives
My fate to be it must be done

Laid to rest
Shut my eyes
Live no more
Die a countless times

To the burial ground
Our flesh are bound
Our souls will live on
With the powers beyond

At the end
I'm still so cold inside
Once again
I would like to share my memories of life

Show me
The realm where nothing dies
If such a place exists
Please guide my eyes !

Australia's Portal sound like being inside a rusty submarine being thrown about on jagged basalt rocks by a hurricane while titanic monsters battle and mate in the churning black waters. And they also have a creepy Lovecraftian theme done with class and style.

British dirtbag biker doom with songs about Conan and Mi-Go...

Summoning of the multi-headed worm god (Sarku? The Dhol?) from the bottomless black pool of filth in a blasphemous subterranean vault...


  1. No comments? I'll go for it.

    That Dismember album rips. Thanks.

  2. I know this is beyond late but I love your blog, your settings, and taste in music. Shame there's not more people like us were I live.
