Sheduler Problem

Yes, the playlist schedule is off. We're working on it.

Thanks.

Playlist Update 26 April

Hails,

38 tracks added/changed yesterday. The new Drudkh is still sitting in a post office, somewhere so no new Drudkh yet.

The new Graveland is in and four songs from Will Stronger Than Death are in the playlist. Initial impressions: The best of the most recent Graveland efforts and the best vocal job in long time; more passion. The drum programming is, as usual, excellent. The song structures keep the strong choir element but work them into the overall setup in a more organized fashion.

Thuringian Pagan Madness and the event that inspired the cover photo have an anniversary of sorts over the next few days. No words are really necessary, are they?

Long time listeners will note our weakness for bands in the vein of Summoning. Ensiferum works for us because it manages to convey a pagan atmosphere while also giving things like structured melodies and great riffs.

Other good stuff added including Norden, Velvet Cacoon, Darkmoon Warrior (rocks!), Lunar Aura and more.

Thanks for your support.

Ham Sandwich Hate Crime


A middle school student in Lewiston, Maine is being investigated by the police for a possible hate crime after he placed a bag containing a ham sandwich on a table where Somali students eat lunch. According to the school's superintendent, Leon Levesque, the student has been suspended, and more disciplinary action could follow pending the outcome of the investigation.

Days of Magical Thinking

The reality of the Virginia Tech killings exists without the saturation media coverage. The dead will not rise and the pain will not lessen despite hours of video images, thousands of audio soundbites.

There are really two tragedies here. First, the very real sadness and pain of the families of the dead and wounded. Second, the broadcast reality contained in the media.

The media encourages us to become a part of something we are not. We relate to the pain and sadness of family grief and are expected to react the same to the grief and sadness of cultures and races not our own.

Remember: Human sorrow exists in the hearts and minds of each victim, family and friend. The observation to be made here is that the media wants us to believe that we are obligated to feel a more acute pain on behalf of cultures and races not our own.

As thinking and feeling humans, we can recognize that it is a very bad thing to have a child gunned down. That is not the same as saying that I must feel and become a part of the experience as if it were my own family. I can only love and feel grief for what I know. Anything else is fantasy.

Acting on fantasy produces very real consequences; the Virginia Tech killer demonstrated the extreme danger of acting on judgements based on fantasy not on real world facts. And so it is with the dominant, liberal, culture. Judgements about race, crime and morality based on the fantasies of diversity and democracy produce a decay in the foundations of our high culture.

Playlist Update 19 April

Hails,

36 tracks added/changed yesterday.

Dub Buk is one of those bands that seems to get overlooked. In fact, a lot of reviews sound something like "I never really paid a lot of attention to this band but when I did I wondered why I waited so long." Combining a distinctly Ukrainian black metal sound with great musicianship and strong ideology, Dub Buk are worth exploring.

The featured CD title translates to "I am coming for you" and refers to Prince Sviatoslav I, a devout Pagan and great military commander. According to stories, Sviatoslav would send a message to his enemies prior to combat saying "I am coming for you." A good treatment of his life and times is here.

We confess. One of the main motivating factors for buying the Svart Hat LP was the Belketre cover. What a great surprise. Black metal in the vein of the black legions with enough atmosphere, hints of melody and originality to be distinctive. Nihilistic Holocaust is an apt description of the lyrics and the music. Pure hate is the order of the day and mental genocide is the goal.

The LP is available in only 350 pieces from Black Hate Productions.

Vargtimmen Pt. 2 is not our favorite Wyrd CD; Heathen is a better overall effort, in our opinion. Still, Vargtimmen Pt. 2 stands as a good example of pagan metal and continues to stay with us after many listenings.

Two other items:

Pestiferous Gateway CD walks the fine line of many Finnish black metal bands between Horna-clone and originality. Listening to the CD, the band, at times, sounds like Horna but just when you're ready to write the track off, they go off in a completely new direction and win you back. Good black metal.

Dark Messiah Rise of the Black Dawn. Six song CD from Hellas via
FMP. Good production, better riffs highlight the CD. Comparisons to Rotting Christ are fair.

Thanks for your support.

Race and Crime - New Articles

Heather Johnson in the City Journal

Heather Mac Donald
Time for the Truth About Black Crime Rates
The lessons of the Sean Bell case
2 April 2007

Carefully omitted from the swirl of media coverage and the denunciations of the NYPD was any discussion of black crime rates. The New York Times did its usual best to shroud the issue. A March article, for instance, devoted itself to charges that the police were preying on the black community. After noting that more than half the people whom cops stop and frisk are black, Times reporter Diane Cardwell added: “City officials maintained that those stopped and searched roughly parallel the race of people mentioned in reports from crime victims.” No, actually, there is no “rough parallel” between the proportion of stops and the proportion of alleged assailants: blacks aren’t stopped enough, considering the rate at which they commit crimes. Though blacks, 24 percent of New York City’s population, committed 68.5 percent of all murders, rapes, robberies, and assaults in the city last year, according to victims and witnesses, they were only 55 percent of all stop-and-frisks. Of course, the Times didn’t give the actual crime figures. Even a spate of vicious assaults on police officers in the week before the indictments didn’t change the predominant story line that officers were trigger-happy racists.

The Truth About Who Suffers
And about who inflicts the suffering.


By Jack Dunphy

Uh oh, we’re not supposed to talk about such things, are we. We’re careful to step ever so gingerly around issues of race and crime, except of course when there is an opportunity, as in the Duke case, to point to a group of privileged whites and say, “See? Look at how badly they’ve behaved! Look at how they treated that poor black single mother!” And in the Michigan case we can look down our noses at a prosperous suburban white family and say, “Look how screwed up they are!” A visitor from a foreign land might read the news and suspect America was plagued by rampaging hordes of collegiate lacrosse players and middle-aged suburbanites. And all the while the far more serious problem of violent crime among minorities in our inner cities is almost completely ignored.

You might hear something twice. You might hear...

Stream re-started to deal with some issues.

Buchanan on Imus and Us

The Imus Lynch Party
by Patrick J. Buchanan

In the end, it was not about Imus. It was about us.

Are we really a better country because, after he was publicly whipped
for 10 days as the worst kind of racist, with whom no decent person
could associate, he was thrown off the air?

Cards on the table.

This writer works for MSNBC, has been on the Imus show scores of times,
watches Imus every morning, and likes the show, the music and the guys:
the I-Man, Bernie, Charles and Tom Bowman.

And Imus is among the best interviewers in our business. Not only does
he read and follow the news closely, he listens and probes as well as
any interviewer in America. Because he is a comic, people mistake how
good a questioner he is.

Is "Imus in the Morning" outrageous? Over the top at times? Are things
said every week, if not every day, where you say, "He's going too far"?
Yeah. But outrageousness is part of the show, whether the skits are of
"Teddy Kennedy," "Reverend Falwell," "Mayor Nagin" or "The Cardinal."

And when Imus called the Rutgers women's basketball team "tattooed ...
nappy-headed hos," he went over the top. The women deserved an apology.
There was no cause, no call to use those terms. As Ann Coulter said,
they were not fair game.

But Imus did apologize, again and again and again.

And lest we forget, these are athletes in their prime, the same age as
young women in Iraq. They are not 5-year-old girls, and they are capable
of brushing off an ignorant comment by a talk-show host who does not
know them, or anything about them.

Who, after all, believed the slur was true? No one.

Compare, if you will, what was done to them – a single nasty insult – to
the savage slanders for weeks on end of the Duke lacrosse team and the
three players accused by a lying stripper of having gang-raped her at a
frat party.

Duke faculty and talking heads took that occasion to vent their venom
toward all white "jocks" on college campuses. Where are the demands for
apologies from the talk-show hosts, guests, Duke faculty members and
smear artists, all of whom bought into the lies about those Duke kids –
because the lies comported with their hateful view of America?

And hate is what this is all about.

While the remarks of Imus and Bernie about the Rutgers women were
indefensible, they were more unthinking and stupid than vicious and
malicious. But malice is the right word to describe the howls for their
show to be canceled and them to be driven from the airwaves – by phonies
who endlessly prattle about the First Amendment.

The hypocrisy here was too thick to cut with a chainsaw.

What was the term the I-Man used? It was "hos," slang for whores, a term
employed ad infinitum et ad nauseam by rap and hip-hop "artists." It is
a term out of the African-American community. Yet, if any of a hundred
rap singers has lost his contract or been driven from the airwaves for
using it, maybe someone can tell me about it.

If the word "hos" is a filthy insult to decent black women, and it is,
why are hip-hop artists and rap singers who use it incessantly not
pariahs in the black community? Why would black politicians hobnob with
them? Why are there no boycotts of the advertisers of the radio stations
that play their degrading music?

Answer: The issue here is not the word Imus used. The issue is who Imus
is – a white man, who used a term about black women only black folks are
permitted to use with impunity and immunity.

Whatever Imus' sins, no one deserves to have Al Sharpton – hero of the
Tawana Brawley hoax, resolute defender of the fake rape charge against
half a dozen innocent guys, which ruined lives – sit in moral judgment
upon them.

"It is our feeling that this is only the beginning. We must have a broad
discussion on what is permitted and not permitted in terms of the
airwaves," says Sharpton. It says something about America that someone
with Al's track record can claim the role of national censor.

Who is next? And why do we take it?

I did a bad thing, but I am not a bad person, says Imus. Indeed, whoever
used his microphone to do more good for more people – be they the cancer
kids of Imus Ranch, the families of Iraq war dead now more justly
compensated because of the I-Man or the cause of a cure for autism?

"We know of no spectacle so ridiculous as the British public in one of
its periodic fits of morality," said Lord Macaulay. Unfortunately,
Macaulay never saw the likes of the Revs. Sharpton and Jackson.

Imus threw himself on the mercy of the court of elite opinion – and that
court, pandering to the mob, lynched him. Yet, for all his sins, he was
a better man than the lot of them rejoicing at the foot of the
cottonwood tree.

Channon Christian/Christopher Newsom 4

The Rutgers press conference today was the Liberal equivalent of the great homecoming fuck fantasy.

Just Stop It.

I watched as much of the Rutgers news conference as I could stomach, proudly demonstrating my tolerance and civility for nearly 5 minutes.

So....are all those fine young women going to hold press conferences for the rest of their lives every time someone says something to hurt their feelings?

Is now the time?

With all the manufactured rumbling over Imus' comments, the complete media blackout of the Christian/Newsom murders and the re-introduction of massive amnesty for thousands of criminal aliens, I'm wondering if we are teetering on the edge of change....

Here's to a long, hot summer.

Imus, Sharpton, Channon and Khallid

Here we go again. The interminable dance of self-loathing and public humiliation that whites must go through when they mutter That-Which-Must-Not-Be-Said.

And like vultures to carrion, Al Sharpton, the NAACP and Jesse Jackson are never far away. The cultural flagellation that whites must engage in as we slowly destroy our own existence produces the unmistakable scent of decay and sleaze-beasts like Al just can't resist. They live and breath the smell. Sharpton, Jackson and the entire group define their very existence by the stench of decay.

Imus is guilty here, too. If you play the game of egalitarianism, then you must follow the rules; break the rules, suffer the consequences. Since egalitarianism is necessarily an artificial construct, it runs contrary to nature and produces an inherent discomfort. A disquieting shadow that continually encroaches on manufactured reality.

Living your life out of sorts, incongruent to nature, produces problems. Remember that if you follow the egalitarian script, the language for the conversation about race is provided by those who wish to crush white America. The scripts for expressing anger, outrage and plain old crankiness all end badly for us.

When Imus makes - bad - jokes about "nappy headed ho's" he is just doing his part and following the script as the predictable wake of vultures so nicely demonstrates.

Contrast the current manufactured fury with the comments of people like Dr. Kamau Kambon and Al Sharpton's now deceased buddy, Khallid Abdul Muhammad (aka Harry Moore, Jr.). Kambon and Khallid made numerous statements about killing white people. To my knowledge, neither Kambon nor Khallid were required to perform the Public Supplication Dance of Shame; I don't believe they went on Mr. Sharpton's radio program although Mr. Sharpton did apparently give a good amount of money to help put Khallid in the ground.

The world is not about equality. If it was, then the same forces, the "hate speech" hall monitors, would be out and about with all the boys and girls and the murder of Channon Christian would be main stream news.

But, the cultural machine functions on destruction. It destroys established culture and leaves a wake of vultures to keep the peace.

So look, it's easy. Stop playing the egalitarian game. If you're white, you can't win. Period. Ever. Not gonna happen. Speak proudly of your race, your culture and act accordingly.

Playlist Update 06 April

Hails,

31 tracks added/changed yesterday.

Dark Fury's new release, the aptly titled Final Solution is the latest and best from the Polish horde. If you are familiar with their past work, then you know what to expect: Straight forward, hard hitting black metal with touches of RAC/metal influence. No melodies, no compromises.

Forgotten Woods' 1995 release Sjel Av Natten was re-relased by Total Holocaust with new artwork in 2006. Distinctly different from the brutality of Dark Fury, Forgotten Woods offers more salient melodies and song structures. The THR release also offers 2 untitled demo/rehearsal tracks. Some find them very out of step with the balance of the release but we like raw, metal performances so, in our opinion, the release is enhanced by two tracks.

Nehemah Light of a Dead Star. Ok, confession time. We have lots of music in the bunker and occasionally we overlook something. For the longest time, we've only had two tracks from the CD recorded and available for the playlist. Call it inattention, call it common sense (we know there are those who dislike Nehemah) but we just plain never got around to it. We burned the rest of the CD yesterday and we remembered just how good the music sounds.

Songs from the Flammentod/Hrimthursen split are also included. We really like Flammentod but just wish there was more material. Moonblood/Nema tracks are in from their 1996 split as well as new material from Amalek/Aryan from their split EP. Other bands: Kilte, Open Grave, Hyperborean Desire, Taake/Gigantomachy.

Two new demos from Nykta: Grab and Lotus Circle. Lotus Circle features one 20+ minute track that we've edited down to give you a sample. The Grab demo features a dedication on the back to Judas Iscariot and the music is influenced by the work of Akhenaten. Very good material and worthy of a full-length. If you want a copy, you'll need to hurry as Nykta has only made 111 copies. Get yours HERE.

Thanks for all the support.

Stand together.

One More Thing

If you look on the left sidebar, you'll notice 4 video screen shots. Blogger has a cool new widget that lets's us link videos from YouTube. When you click on one of the shots, the video pops up at the top of our blog page. Very cool.

Playlist Update 01 April

Hails,

43 tracks added/changed yesterday. A good variety of bands; but, we note we some amusement that we seem to have been stuck in the "L" section of our database. Lots of new material has hit the bunker in the past few days including Dark Fury and Bilskirnir.

For those upset by the ad frequency changes due to the CRB decision:

1) It is only temporary (we hope);
2) If you can afford it, go to www.live365.com and become a VIP member. You get to listen to all the stations commercial free and Iron Will Radio makes a little bit of money in the process.

Thanks for your support.
