Playlist Update 31 March


Yes, we're late.

We're also very pleased to offer Dark Tribe's In Jeraspunta as one of the featured works. After getting a copy a year or so back, we've hunted for an LP version to officially put into rotation and we found one at Black Hate Productions. In Jerapunta is a fantastic musical ride across emotional chasms, tortured screams and clever compositions.

Bilskirnir released For Victory We Ride back in 1996/97; this is a copy of the original. The early releases captured a good sense of pagan values portrayed in music. Later releases, though we like them, are a bit too raw at times and can resemble a charicature of possibility rather than the real thing. Enjoy this bit of pagan war...

Defenders of the Blood remains our favorite work from Warhead. Part RAC, part black metal it smashes along from song to song with ferocious lyrics and good melodic structure. Kinda like singing a happy tune while you trash your enemies. Perfect.

Other interesting stuff:
Satanizer from Bogota, Columbia slice open your basic fast-paced Satanic black metal with a familiar South American mix of black/death influences.

The Enecare/Gravestench release is raw and dirty metal to cleanse the trendy crap from your brain.

Ungod/Baxaxaxa released a limited EP version of the Magicus Tallis Damnation and Hellfire demos from 1992. Baxaxaxa, besides having a fun name to type, was a side project of Ungod members. It features some keyboards and is a very listenable demo. Too bad it never went anywhere else. The Ungod demo also includes an original - and better sounding - version of Firestorm, Ashes, Genocide.

There's also new to the rotation material from Ewiges Reich off the Thron aus Eis release and from Kawir from the Epoptia release.

Thanks for your support.

Playlyist updates 22 March


27 tracks added/changed yesterday.


Arghoslent Incorrigible Bigotry. Classic cd; great riffs and not a bad song in the bunch. Some newer listeners may wonder why we're playing a death metal CD. We find that alot of people who like our types of pagan/nsbm/black metal also like Arghoslent. The power of the lyrics and the commonality of cause also matter.

Ildjarn Nocturnal Visions. Later EP release featuring black metal works from 1991 - 1995 with unreleased re-worked versions of some songs from Strength & Anger. Tends towards the harsher side of the Ildjarn discography and that's the side we like best. Cold intense loneliness. Shimmering reflections of hate. Lovely.

Torturium Black Lunatic Chaos. We've been fans of Torturium since the first time we heard Misanthropic Angel's Burning Wings. Musically, the man behind the project leads you through a twisting cavern of darkness, touching the emotions of anger, hatred and burning evil. More please!

Every once in a while, we hear a demo that stops us in our tracks. The featured demo from Homunculus is one of them. Crashing riffs give way to the ebb and flow of raw emotion. Lyrics, intelligent and well-thought out, speak to the works of Satan and satanic rituals. Somebody sign these guys.

Other new items: Horna/Sacrificia Mortuorum split LP, Ancestor's Blood, Warage, the original Isvind demo (!) and more.

Thanks for your support.

Nancy Pelosi: AIPAC Gal

Great Buchanan article.

The AIPAC Girl
by Patrick J. Buchanan
March 20, 2007

If George W. Bush launches a pre-emptive war on Iran, House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi will bear full moral responsibility for that war.

For it was Pelosi who quietly agreed to strip out of the $100 billion
funding bill for Iraq a provision that would have required President
Bush to seek congressional approval before launching any new war on Iran.

Pelosi’s capitulation came in the Appropriations Committee.

What went down, and why?

“Conservative Democrats as well as lawmakers concerned about the
possible impact on Israel had argued for the change in strategy,” wrote
ghe Associated Press’ David Espo and Matthew Lead.

“Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., said in an interview there is a
widespread fear in Israel about Iran, which … has expressed unremitting
hostility to the Jewish state.

“‘It would take away perhaps the most important tool the U.S. has when
it comes to Iran,’ she said of the now-abandoned provision.

“‘I don’t think it was a very wise idea to take things off the table if
you’re trying to get people to modify their behavior and normalize in a
civilized way,’ said Gary Ackerman of New York.”

According to John Nichols of The Nation, Pelosi’s decision to strip the
provision barring Bush from attacking Iran without Congress’ approval
“sends the worst possible signal to the White House.”

“The speaker has erred dangerously and dramatically,” writes Nichols.
Her “disastrous misstep could haunt her and the Congress for years to come.”

Nichols does not exaggerate.

If Bush now launches war on Iran, he can credibly say Congress and the
Democrats gave him a green light. For Pelosi, by removing a provision
saying Bush does not have the authority, de facto concedes he does have
the authority.

Bush and Cheney need now not worry about Congress.

They have been flashed the go sign for war on Iran.

Pelosi & Co. thus aborted a bipartisan effort to ensure that if we do go
to war again, we do it the constitutional way, and we do it together.

Nothing in the provision would have prevented Bush, as commander in
chief, from responding to an Iranian attack or engaging in hot pursuit
of an enemy found in Iraq. Nor would the provision have prevented Bush
from threatening Iran. It would simply have required him to come to
Congress – before launching all-out war.

Now Pelosi has, in effect, ceded Bush carte blanche to take out Iran’s
nuclear facilities. It’s all up to him and Cheney.

For this the nation elected a Democratic Congress?

Why did Pelosi capitulate? Answer: She was “under pressure from some
conservative members of her caucus, and from lobbyists associated with
neoconservative groups that want war with Iran and the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC),” writes Nichols.

The Washington Times agrees as to who bully-ragged Nancy into scuttling
any requirement that Bush come to the Hill before unleashing the B-2s on
Arak, Natanz and Bushehr:

“Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi received a smattering of boos
when she bad-mouthed the war effort during a speech to the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee, and the Democratic leadership,
responding to concerns from pro-Israel lawmakers, was forced to strip
from a military appropriations measure a provision meant to weaken
President Bush’s ability to respond to threats from Iran.”

This episode, wherein liberal Democrats scuttled a bipartisan effort to
require Bush to abide by the Constitution before taking us into a third
war in the Middle East, speaks volumes about who has the whip hand on
Capitol Hill when it comes to the Middle East.

Pelosi gets booed by the Israeli lobby, then runs back to the Hill and
gives Bush a blank check for war on Iran, because that is what the lobby
demands. A real candidate for Profiles in Courage.

As for the presidential candidates, it is hard to find a single one
willing to stand up and say: If Bush plans to take us into another war
in the Mideast, he must first come to Congress for authorization. And if
he goes to war without authorization, that will be impeachable.

All retreat into the “all-options-are-on-the-table” mantra, which is
another way of saying, “It’s Bush’s call.”

The corruption of both parties is astonishing. Republicans used to be
the party of the Constitution: “No more undeclared wars! No more
presidential wars!”

Democrats used to be the party of the people. The people don’t want this
war. They don’t want another. The Jewish community voted 88 percent for
Democrats in November, and 77 percent oppose Iraq.

So says Gallup. Yet, just because the Israeli lobby jerked her chain,
the leader of the Peoples’ House has decided she and her party will
leave the next war up to Bush.

Sam Rayburn must be turning over in his grave.

Playlist Update 15 March


30 tracks added today. A bit of something for everyone because we're all about diversity...

First up, Wintergewitter (Winter Storm), a demo release from 2003. We've played most of the tracks at one time or the other but here's your chance to here the demo for yourself. The band, as far as we know, never released anything else. NSBM proudly played with no compromises.

Next is Nihil Nocturne with wahnsinn. tod. verrat.. There is nothing new here, but that's not bad. Mid-tempo black metal surrounded by passages ranging from raw to quiet. Some comparisons have been made to latter day Darkthrone and that's reasonable - to a point. Nihil Nocturne has their own sound and their own musical style.

Finally, we have Skyforger Kauja Pie Saules. When people ask for an aural definition of pagan metal, we often refer them to Skyforger as a good place to start. More metal than pagan in instrumentation, Skyforger work the lyrics and the attitude to present a united front against the mandated mediocrity of modern culture.

Other stuff to bleed to: Watain, Bloodrain, Ghremdrakk and a great split demo on Othal productions from Harsgathyr and Ysorex. There may also be a Wigrid track lurking in the playlist.

Thanks for your support.

Honour to the brave. Death to the weak.

Executive Branch Reform Act H.R. 984


Interesting language inserted into the bill:


`In this title:

`(1) COVERED EXECUTIVE BRANCH OFFICIAL- The term `covered executive branch official' means--

`(A) any officer or employee serving in a position in level I, II, III, IV, or V of the Executive Schedule, as designated by statute or Executive order;

`(B) any member of the uniformed services whose pay grade is at or above O-7 under section 201 of title 37, United States Code;

`(C) any officer or employee serving in a position of a confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating character described in section 7511(b)(2)(B) of title 5, United States Code;

`(D) any noncareer appointee, as defined by section 3132(a)(7) of title 5, United States Code; and

`(E) any officer or employee serving in a position of a confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy advocating character, or any other individual functioning in the capacity of such an officer or employee, in the Executive Office of the President or the Office of the Vice President, but does not include the President or Vice President or the chief of staff of the President or Vice President.


`(A) IN GENERAL- Except as provided in subparagraph (B), the term `significant contact' means oral or written communication (including electronic communication) that is made by a private party to a covered executive branch official in which such private party seeks to influence official action by any officer or employee of the executive branch of the United States.

`(B) EXCEPTION- The term `significant contact' does not include any communication that is an exception to the definition of `lobbying contact'--

`(i) under clauses (i) through (vii) or clauses (ix) through (xix) of subparagraph (B) of paragraph (8) of section 3 of the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1602(8)(i)-(vii) or (ix)-(xix)); or

`(ii) with respect to publically available information only, under clause (viii) of subparagraph (B) of paragraph (8) of section 3 of the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1602(8)(viii)).

`(3) PRIVATE PARTY- The term `private party' means any person or entity, but does not include a Federal, State, or local government official or a person representing such an official.'.

Implies that anytime you contact a covered exec branch official, you are considered a lobbyist and must be reported. Sounds like a way to keep tabs on people.

Black Snake Moan: Silence of Decay

I've been seeing a few reviews/promos for a new movie, Black Snake Moan with Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci. Critics, at least most, are falling over themselves to praise the story that involves a black man chaining up a white woman. Did I mention that the white woman is a prostitute?

The movie is more evidence of a decay. A decay where traditional, long-held and established values are smashed and the "artists" revel in the debris. Since such obvious destruction is not inherently meaningful, critics and the creators of the works must strive to find meaning in the meaningless: look for comments about humor, sweetness, recovery and other favorites of the degenerate left and right.

The absence of tradition unleashes desire because there are no limits; or, rather, the limits are found in the moment and the boundaries are created by the whims of the participants. Chain up a white woman? It's sweet. Object? You just don't get it.

Transcript of DC Gun Ruling

You can download a copy of the appeals court ruling at this link:

Appeals Court Ruling

Requires Adobe pdf; 75 pages.

Appeals Court Rules For DC Gun Owners

NY Times

Rejecting the arguments for the continuation of crime in the largely black area, a Federal Appeals Court today ruled unconstutional the DC ban on handguns registered to personal owners.

The 2 - 1 ruling declared the following provisions unconstitutional:

1) Registration of handguns barred;
2) Prohibition against carrying a handgun without a license "even from one room of a private home to another"; and,
3) Requirement that legally owned firearms must be kept unloaded and disassembled or fixed with a trigger lock.

During a news conference, recently elected DC Mayor Adrian Fenty said, "I am personally deeply disappointed and quite frankly outraged by today's decision. Today's decision flies in the face of laws that have helped decrease gun violence in the District of Columbia." Promising to work to overturn the decision, Fenty said the city will "vigorously enforce" its handgun law.

Fenty's apparent ignorance of his city's crime problems will, no doubt, strike some as strange. Some facts:

- Washington DC has one of the hightest murder rates in the nation, about 44 per 100,000 people.
- Washington DC has the hightest ratio of security guards to students, with one guard for every 163 students.
- 1 in 20 DC residents are HIV positive. 1 in 20. Think about that fact.
- In 2001, only 59% of DC public high school students graduated.

A victory, for now.

30 tracks added/changed yesterday.

One of the featured works is the new Kroda, Fimbulvinter. The best so far from a band that improves with every release. One thing you'll notice is that Kroda capture the Ukranian/pagan sound without sounding like Nokturnal Mortum or other bands. An unexpected surprise is a cover of Branikald's A Stormride featuring new lyrics.

Wiki info on the norse term Fimbulvintr

Our other features this week include one well known and one less well known. The Black House is our favorite effort from Krieg, at least today. Great riffs, pounding drums and a sense of futility. The best track? A Process of Dying..

AEIOU released FHT back in 2005. Great release focusing on the Futhark. The letters of the title stand for each of the three aett's:
Freyja's aett; Heimdall's aett; and, Tyr's aett. Study and learn.

Other music from: Curse, Knell, Dzlvarv, Moonsorrow, Lunar Aurora, Prevalent Resistance, Kult ov Azazel & Vrolok.

What Next for Internet Radio In Light of the Copyright Royalty Board Decision
Following the recent Copyright Royalty Board decision, about which we have written several times this week, many individuals and companies have asked what can be done either to reverse the decision, or to operate in a world where the decision becomes effective. While it is much too early to access all of the options, I thought that I would outline some of the possibilities.

First, Petitions for Rehearing of the Decision can be filed by the parties to the case within 15 days of the release of the decision – by March 19. As such a Petition asks the Board to determine that the conclusions it reached after several months of deliberation were wrong, this is an uphill battle. There is, however, a much greater possibility that the Board will clarify some of the more onerous ambiguities of the decision – such as the issue of what constitutes a "channel" or "station" to which the minimum fee attaches.

After Petitions for Rehearing are dealt with, the Library of Congress must publish the decision in the Federal Register. Within 30 days of such publication, parties can appeal the case to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The filing of a Notice of Appeal by that deadline merely starts the appellate process. The Court will establish a schedule for the case – setting dates for the filing of full legal briefs and responses to those briefs. The Court will have an oral argument after the briefs are filed. A decision will follow. In appellate cases, this process can easily take a year to complete. In order to overturn the decision, the court must find that the decision was arbitrary and capricious - in essence that, when presented with the facts, no there was no reasonable way for the decision to turn out the way it did. This is a high standard that must be achieved, but not one so high that appeals are never successful. So there is always hope.

But there are other ways in which this decision could be changed, or ways by which webcasters could work around its effects. SoundExchange and some or all of the parties could reach a voluntary settlement, agreeing to rates different from those that the Board assigned. These rates would have to be applicable to classes of webcasters - rather than to individual companies. In 2002, after the decision of the Copyright Royalty Arbitration Panel setting the first royalty rates for the digital performance right for sound recordings, SoundExchange felt that, to bind all copyright holders, such settlements had to have Congressional blessing – hence the Small Webcasters Settlement Act authorizing those settlements. In this case, while the CRB still has jurisdiction while it considers rehearing motions, it is possible that settlements could be blessed by it. In any event, a settlement is possible.

A number of parties have already started to talk to Congress about the decision. Given that we have had two decisions in the last 5 years on these royalties, and both times the decisions have been such that smaller entities feel that they have been disenfranchised – even when they were part of the process as they were this year – the whole “willing buyer, willing seller” standard used in this case might need to be reevaluated. In this case, it seems that the standard was evaluated in terms of the largest, most successful webcasters, who are actually not the pure webcasters that the statute was meant to protect. Instead, they were larger companies who use their streams to promote other aspects of their operations, or subsidize those streams with revenues from other sources. These larger entities are ones that could deal with the record labels – in fact in many cases have dealt with the record labels to work out interactive and other nonstatutory licenses. The statute, which was supposed to help smaller entities who didn’t have the bargaining power to deal with the labels directly, instead seems to have precluded these entities from continuing their operations every time that a decision has been made under the statutory standard.

There is currently a disparity in standards used for different digital music services operating under the statutory license. “Pre-existing subscription services” (i.e. digital cable music services and satellite radio) have a standard that relies on a number of factors in reaching a fair royalty, including the relative contributions of the parties to the dissemination of the music and the benefits that the public receives from the existence of the particular music service involved. It is not the strict "willing buyer willing seller" economic analysis that applies to the Internet radio operators. While the Perform Act currently pending before Congress proposes some reform of the standard, it is not generally perceived to be a reform that would resolve this issue. So Congressional reform – both short term to resolve this specific issue and longer term to resolve the issues that seem to plague the entire system – may be a remedy.

Finally, if none of these options work, services can try to negotiate private deals for the use of music by artists who believe that the promotional value of Internet radio exposure helps them sell recordings, concert tickets and other merchandise. An Internet radio service can get waivers of the fees from copyright owners. If they get waivers from some of the artists that they play, it can reduce the amount of the royalty that they pay. If they only play artists from who they have waivers, then they can eliminate their royalties. There have been some discussions in various forums about independent artists who might make their music available to Internet radio. In fact, artists and webcasters could get together to create pools of available royalty free music that could be played on Internet radio. If this were to occur, the CRB decision could lead to a boom for independent music – perhaps to the detriment of the traditional major labels that supported the SoundExchange litigation.

Some of the more concerned webcasters have talked about moving off shore. That may not be a viable long term option for a company that has a US presence. The royalties apply to music streamed to US residents. Over the last few years, we’ve seen many foreign webcasters cutting off US streams to avoid paying US royalties, just as many large US webcasters have cut off foreign listeners to avoid liability to foreign performing rights organizations. You may remember, a few years ago, the recording industry put pressure on US ISPs to cut off access to a Chinese website that was offering downloads at a fraction of the usual price to US listeners. That same thing could happen to a successful webcasters who, while located off shore, was targeting US listeners and advertisers.

All in all, there are many effort that need to be made in coming days and weeks to preserve Internet radio as we are now familiar with it. I'm sure that we will all be waiting to see what happens.

Bush Administration Takes Up La Raza Talking Points

Just how committed are Bush administration officials to destroying our European culture? Ok, we know that's obvious, but hang on here. We have a point.

Monday March 5, the American Legion hosted a forum on Illegal Immigration. Speaking for the Administration was Alfonso Aguilar from the US Dept of Homeland Security. According to Roy Beck from Numbers USA - one of the speakers - Aguilar made the following comments.

America needs foreign workers because, said Aguilar, "we have American families not having kids." Aguilar continued: "To think we could keep our economy going on native-born Americans is totally unrealistic."

Both points are almost word-for-word quotes from La Raza and other anti-American organizations.

Future of Internet Radio: Greed Over Freedom

Like your internet radio? Soundexchange and the RIAA think you're a hostage and they don't like the way you've been behaving. In fact, they are determined to make you do what they want, when they want, no matter where you live and listen.

Last April, the US Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing to examine the issues surrounding internet radio. For a sample of the testimony, you can check out Live365 CEO Mark Lam's Testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Common sense to the contrary, the Copyright Royalty Board has apparently adopted the freedom killing, money swilling rates urged by Soundexchange.

You can download and read the entire ruling here.

Based on various analyses, here are the increases between 2006 - 2010:

2006 through 2010: $0.0008, $0.0011, $0.0014, $0.0018, and $0.0019, respectively, representing an increase over the existing rate ($0.000762) of 5%, 44%, 84%, 136%, and 149%. (a nod to Live365 for the numbers)

US Education: More Diversity, Please

From a recent Pat Buchanan article:

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)
exam - called the “nation's report card” - was studied by the New York Times.

Buchanan says:

"An NAEP test of 12th-grade achievement was given to what the New York Times called a representative sample of 21,000 high school seniors attending 900 public and private schools from January to March 2005.”

What did the tests reveal?

* Since 1990, the share of students lacking even basic reading
skills has risen by a third, from 20 percent to 27 percent.

* Only 35 percent of high school seniors have reached a
“proficient” level in reading, down from 40 percent.

* Only 16 percent of black and 20 percent of Hispanic students had
reached a proficient level in reading.

* Among high school seniors, only 29 percent of whites, 10 percent
of Hispanic students and 6 percent of black students were proficient in

This is only the half of it. Among the kids whose test scores on reading
and math were not factored in were the 25 percent of white students and
50 percent of black and Hispanic kids who had dropped out by senior year.

Factor the dropouts back in, and what the NAEP test suggests is that, of
black kids starting in first grade, about one in eight will be able to
read at the level of a high school senior after 12 years, and one in 33
will be able to do the math. Among Hispanic kids, one in 10 will be able
to read at a high-school senior level, but only one in 20 will be able
to do high-school math."

From the NAEP: 88 percent of blacks and 85 percent of Hispanics fell short of (reading) proficiency in 2005.

The hybridization of our race is a problem. Once lost, it is never recovered. Never.

What do we do? Well, we fall for the old traps of fighting with each other instead of against our common enemy. While white/Eurpoean "racists" and "diversity adovcates" fight each other, the foundation of our entire race is systematically decaying.
