La Division Mentale - L Extase Des Fous Plasmodium

Keeping up with the French vibe that's been shown recently here at Xul, LDM deliver more Cyber Black Metal in a very pleasing way. Needless to say these fellows take drugs, have sex with low class hookers, and attend Hard-House raves seeking doped up females to take into dark corners and finger with feces stained digits.


Vomir - No Entertainment

Need the people next door to move out?
Not sure what to play on Friday night when that stupid whore you've been grooming on a dating site comes over to your house for a "movie", where as you have other plans, and a polished tool kit waiting to be put to good use?
Wondered how quickly a rodent would explode if you dropped it into a sub-woofer?
Think no more and grab this wall of noise.

Arkhon Infaustus - Orthodoxyn

Arkhon Infaustus started off on the right path but to my ear, they just weren't what they could have been. No fear though, Xul presents what is probably their finest work, you're given Orthodox Black Metal of the highest order here, 49 minutes oF thick and ugly fury, all controlled most likely by some form of drug addiction. The production on this release is first class allowing the abuse and khaos to flow like lumpy beef-vomit into your ears.

Sutter Kain

Alright, hear us out here... This is rap. This is the ugliest rap I've heard and pisses all over the grind nerd shock value. While some may question just what the hell Xul is doing here, we assure you that the force is strong with this one. This guy has definitely spent time with his horror and gore music. In addition, the story behind the project is quite hilarious, but we'll let you dig to find that. Have faith Xul legions, this one is worth your time.



Bartsch of Bethlehem apparently banged a few French whores in his youth, and that seed, tempered with heroin and lsd in bottle gave rise to Diapsiquir. Like the rise of the alien / human hybrid in Alien Resurrection, we are treated to this lovely offspring.
Containing members of Xul's other darlings Neo Inferno 262 and Arkhon Infaustus. The mark of quality is clearly stamped.


Gnaw Their Tongues - An Epiphanic Vomiting of Blood

Terrirfying and disgusting Noise Black Metal. Mix that in with some Classical music lurking in the background like a sex offender, and you have a good idea about what might be playing in a rapists underwear before they smash that custom made table leg club over some sad kunts skull.

Gorgoroth - Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt

Behold the new Gorgoroth.

Rambo V - The Savage Hunt

John Rambo could track anyone - or anything - on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Artic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation.It's a job that Rambo and his 22-year-old hunting partner, Beau Brady, can't turn down, but they and a team of highly-skilled special forces kill team discover that the prey is a terror beyond their wildest imagination - a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man's cunning, a predator's savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Rambo and Beau survive its unrelenting hunger for human blood, they'll still have to confront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal...
This isn't a joke either, well it is but it isn't, it's gonna happen.


Latino Review (LR) has read a draft for "" and was able to share a script review that uncovers some plot details of the forthcoming "Predator" series reboot. [SPOILER ALERT!] Noting that the movie will take place in the jungles of the Predator home planet, LR uncovered that the main protagonist will be known as Royce. Chasing his foe to a rooftop, Royce is under the surveillance of a Predator. After he kills the man, he finds himself snatched by the alien and taken to the Predator home world. Dropped into the jungles, he meets seven other humans from around the world, who are also captured. These seven people are said to be best killers on Earth. One of the captured humans is Cuchillo, a Mexican-American enforcer from a drug cartel with "twin Uzis strapped to his back". This character reportedly will be played by . Then, there is Nikolai, a Russian with a rotary machine gun. Isabelle, a French woman armed with a sniper rifle; Stans, a prisoner from San Quentin; Mombasa, an African member of the Sierra Leone squad; Hanzo, a Japanese Yakuza enforcer; and Edwin, a man formerly on the FBI's most wanted list. To be directed by "" helmer Nimrod Antal, "Predators" is said to offer "a bold new chapter in the Predator universe". The story allegedly will deal with a very intense group of people stranded on a Predator planet discovering unspeakable horrors that are not always from outside their group. 20th Century Fox eyes to release the film on July 7, 2010.

Proper Xulbroad Education

At the end she does what all Xulbroads need to learn. After a night of Sex, Drinks and Metal, a proper woman does what her instinct orders her to do. As our hero El Duce has taught us, they just need to SUCK AND FUKK AND COOK AND CLEAN! Note how happy she looks doing it.

Ofermod - Mystérion Tés Anomias

From Norma Evangelium Diaboli

In March 2006, Michayah (Who is the main man behind all this)was sent to prison for assault, robbery and some other charges. He was released in August, but was taken into custody a few days later, and sentenced to serve more time due to additional acts of violence...After a check over with the mental health nurses, it was brought to their attention that he was possessed by a certain XUL.

No time for smiles when you can kill.

Azaghal - Teraphim

Fukk your weather reports, this is grim.

Clint Eastwood can kill every pagan wimp that ever existed.

Hate is groovy

Hatesville, the word itself just kinda puts you in that mood... One of the non metal offerings from Xul that just kinda have to be heard to truly be appreciated. Containing an infamous cast of characters (Boyd Rice, Jim Goad, Adam Parfrey and Sean Partridge), it remains an inspiration for the counter-culture generation. Face it, crude humor about hate just rules, ya dig? So make a cocktail, fluff up your pillows. Sit back, relax and hate.
You'll feel a lot better when you just let it out.

Abigail, Japan's answer to the Watts riots... An entertaining old school approach to black metal. Take 1 part Venom, 1 part German thrash, 1 part Godzilla and add and a touch of dirty street punk on meth and set the blender to liquefy. You'll be speaking in broken engrish for days.
Blow your brains out


The cover says it all.

Xul - Buried in many realms.

NebulaCruiser-Xul this week seems to be heading towards the realms of Sci-Fi, be it films or their soundtracks. Sure alot of essential music has been posted recently which all goes towards the Xul-Education Program (XEP) but another important aspect of obtaining the right mentality, is having the correct images fed into your minds. Being able to sit through a movie and and spot Xul influences is all apart of XEP. So if you're going to sit there and wonder "Why are such things being posted here?" you don't quite get it obviously.


The Key, because we're in a sci fi mood lately here at XUL we decide to unload this classic slab of even more classic death metal atcha. We could tell you the usual dull "Pioneering band with use of keyboards, they had a lot of leads and Mike Browning of Morbid Angel fame was in them until they had internal conflicts and blah blah blah", but that's too easy and amateur. What you really need to know is that there is a multi-song theme of CAPTURING INVADING ROBOTS TO BUILD A TIME MACHINE TO GO BACK IN TIME AND KILL BABY JESUS IN ORDER TO FORM AN EMPIRE TO AWAIT THE FUTURE INVASION.
If you read that and don't instantly go "Fukk yeah!" then really, I don't know what to tell you other than you probably have watched one too many chick flicks in your lifetime.


This is all that was left of the front man, plus an apple.

Charles Manson

Insane kult leader, or misunderstood beatnik prophet that found a voice with some impressionable hippies? Frankly, we don't care. Anyone that abandons society to go live in the desert in a western movie set while dispensing hallucinogens and convincing said impressionable hippies that a great war is coming is OK in our books.
Prior to his trips into town with the traveling abortion clinic family, he was a musician that got bitter that no one signed him. Imagine if punk's DIY aesthetic had existed then? He probably would be the GG Allin of the 60s and 70s. But that's life... So instead he made like the Blues Brothers and rocked the prison system. Xul gives a special listening treat, a collection of many of his albums here. Be sure to take drugs when listening to the spoken word, see what difference you can make in the world.



After watching this, well, it's essential.

It's official this is an Enthroned free zone.

We've all listened to Enthroned, and hopefully, we've all realized by now that Enthroned are good at one thing, making the same album year after year.
This goes for other such bands, for example, Horna...
Such bands are able to produce standard text book Black Metal, which is dangerous if they happen to be one of the first bands you get into, and then get SUCKED into, you'll deny how boring and dull they are to anyone, you'll mourn the recent loss of their vocalist, (whoever he is, I'm not quite sure, nor do I care because it really matters that little.)and generally find yourself drooling over the prospect of anything that might involve members in the future.
Every part timer knows such a band, or twenty just as well as deep down, Xul is whispering to you, that they are toilet, (A band Xul disposes all previous tried and tested useless riffs to and flushes deep into their brains)he knows they have nothing new to add to Black Metal, but these bands survive, because playing it safe never killed anyone which in their case is tragic. Corpse paint by numbers if you will.
Because safety sells.


Meance Ruines - Cult of Ruins

Intense and psychedelic Black Metal...featuring simple industrial style drum patterns to a very ugly production, thick and buzzing....recommended listening for those of you who enjoy atmospheric black metal...I know there are alot of bands these days using the atmospheric black metal tag, which probably shouldn't, but I can't think of any other way to really describe this album.

First design by Sathiron.


This is probably the worst gig I've been to.

Ghast claim to play down-tempo Black Metal influenced by "Northern Doom"...What?

What I heard was a very tired, uninspired set of toilet. It dragged on and on and on, with no real highlight or climax to any song, just a boring wave of gunk.

Daemonolith....five people on stage, five people failing to produce what they claim is "True Black Metal"...They made the biggest mistake of the night, whilst I was losing myself to the DJ playing Gypsy covered by Emperor, they thought it would be a good idea to ruin this by sound checking..So a quick prayer to Xul and hey presto, their music turned into dull(again uninspired) recycled garbage which might have sounded OK if I was gay and dead.

I boo'ed them.

Onto Permafrost who I was looking forward to seeing, them being slightly demented(Which helped the nights events)....I noticed something strange straight away....I didn't pay too much attention to it, but it seemed to me that the vocalist changed during the 1st or 2nd song, I wasn't paying too much attention as there was some trollish man talking to me and trying to destroy my face with his dung-breath, all trolls must have naturally shitty smelling breath, which is fine by me, just not whilst I'm feeding beer down my throat as it will most likely make me gag, which it did.
So I thought OK Permafrost are being silly and German, the right vocalist was on now, bandaging up his bicep, he had a few bandages on, which I thought to be his stage get up, as they were all sporting 'half corpse-paint' someone forgot to bring the white paint it would appear.
So I walked out for a cigarette and started talking to some cougar when all of a sudden the whole of Permafrost come bundling out of the doors and start screaming for an would appear the vocalist didn't practice "Safe Self Harm" and was bleeding all over the place..I hope he died.
So upon going back in, there was a mish mash of morons on stage playing bullshit and behold Dimmu Borgir playing over the speakers! Oh this was such a good night!
Troll guy is now telling me that when he sees people with shaved heads like myself, he thinks of Nazi's, which was fine by me, as when I see fat middle aged men with shit-breath I tend to think "Cunt".
Besatt take to the stage, and jump into what must have been one of their more modern songs, because it flowed past me without even noticing...they then played Baphomet from Hellstorm, which wasn't a terrible album, until I changed my mind and said, yes this is terrible, I'm going to leave and get a kebab.
Which myself and friend did.
It was spectacular, the chilli sauce was excellent, and I felt almost reluctant to return, but I did...Some fat kid with his dads beard on was very excited about the prospect of being at the gig that Permafrost nearly "died" or did, who cares, I haven't got time for Dead Mark II, not unless he's going to blow his brains out.
Besatt rolled on, I dreamed of darker days and it was over. During this whole evening, I tried taking a shit in a tissue covered hand several times in order to create art in the restrooms, but nothing happened, all I got was a brown/yellow stained tissue. Sums up the gig really, BROWN/YELLOW STAINED, AND TOILET.

Christ Agony

Poland's Christ Agony. One of the long running bands of Poland that never really got their due.
They evolved a bit through their history, from more death / black origins to a goth influenced sound.. Always an interesting listen and worth your time to explore fully. Moonlight represents them at their relentless era.

... by the force of sacred magic rites...
Symphony Satanikka
Darklord, ugly, technical and absolutely insane chaos from Australia dating back to the early 90s.
While fanboys were busy gushing the overhyped war metal sound from down under, these guys flew under the radar by not being prolific at all. Truly the definition of a kult band, few assaults ever reached for where they were going. The demo cd "by the force of sacred magic rites" was one of the ugliest things I had ever heard. While the follow up lp "Symphony Satanikka" took symphonic black metal to an area a band like emperor could only dream of touching. Double guitars used in order to play both insanely down tuned rhythms and leads on the other neck, vocals from a cave and an unrelenting assault on your ears is what you can expect. Truly one of the great gems of Australia.


Truly demented work of dark metal genius from Bethlehem... One of the other of the holy trinity that created the depressive bm subculture (Manes, Bethlehem and Burzum), this sounded like nothing else at the time. To this day they still possess one of the greatest guitar tones in metal history. Marco from Deinonychus provided the vocals for this album and it is a match made in hell. This album was recently repacked with the guy from Shining on vocals, don't bother. Don't taint the pure experience of SUIZID as it is meant to be heard.


Criminally overlooked in the era of the Norwegian bands break outs was Gehenna. They did everything right for awhile and then pretty much wrote themselves out of contention by following other interesting acts like Bloodthorn into the death metal world. Their following album to Malice, "Adimiron Black", is a decent listen, but came nowhere near capturing the power that was Malice.


Fukk everything you think you know about the origins of black metal if you don't know this album. Seriously, if this is your first time seeing this album cover and you consider yourself a "black metal fan", then go stick a shotgun in your face and make like Dead.
Primitive, ugly, blasphemous... This is the real deal and to this day makes most bands just seem retarded in comparison.

Italian industrial black metal... A band that took the influences of prior bands and made some of the first strides into turning the genre from a curiosity into a world of its own. Their best work and by far one of the most haunting albums of its time. It still stands up to this day, which is the true mark of excellence.


Krieg, The US most lethal black metal.


This is a band I simply cannot pick one album to represent, always a new and interesting twist to each album with surprises and delights to be found consistently.
Often hated in the US social circles for pointless social reasons (the music speaks, who really gives a shit about anything else?).
Krieg is simply an amazing work that truly speaks to a fan with tastes developed enough to understand it. Thus I cannot recommend this band enough. I could not pick a single album, so here are 2 later works which represented Krieg at their most developed stage.


As modern kids are busy crapping themselves over Xasthur, Shining, Striborg etc. and their influence over "depressive" or "suicide" black metal. (or as we old bastards call it "emo black metal") there was Manes... While their demos (which are classics in their own right) are the far more grim releases, Under Ein Blodraud Maane was a rerecording of that material in a more polished manner (i.e. not recorded and then dubbed from a telephone answering machine).
This amazing work was one of the most influential pieces of work to come out of Norway.
Essential listening, best enjoyed while under the influence.
