So I was wandering through the vast wasteland known as my Maedia file, and figured next up should be the most hardcore Viking mother fuckers known to man, AMON AMARTH!

Amon Amarth have been raping and pillaging the metal scene for damn near 20 years now, they are considered the forefather's of Viking/Death metal for good reason. Their battle-steeped songs are nothing less than epic masterpieces cultivated from their heroic Norsemen forefathers. They take their material straight from ODIN himself, proclaiming their well-deserved place in Viking and Death metal history. They have released several albums over the years that have more than adequately destroyed everything it touched, but my personal favorite would have to be "With Oden On Our Side". Words cannot describe the brutality of this album, it is track after track of war fueled tremelo MAYHEM. If you're looking to depart on an adventure, and slay your foes without mercy, without even leaving your seat these guys are a MUST HAVE! I will put some links here for your listening pleasure. If you find that these guys are kicking your ass, visit their site, and for fuck's sake BUY THEIR SHIT! Amon Amarth

More metal for the masses.

Next up on my list of Metal badassery: BEHEMOTH

 Behemoth have been around for quite some time, entertaining the masses with their demon-possessed blackened death metal. They have been through many transitions over the years, starting out as black metal, and progressing with each album towards a heavier more brutal type of music. Behemoth's music is among some of metal's most meaningful. Every song and every lyric has some true meaning to the band. Such personal ties to their work drives them to consistently put out the highest quality music, which has put them at the top of the modern metal world. With their recent album "Evangelion" they do not disappoint, their musicianship is still as brutal and relentless as ever. Unlike my previous post about TPH, Behemoth has several extremely brutal music videos, I will link a couple here to showcase their insanity, aswell as a couple songs for you to feast upon. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Visit their site and show them support! Behemoth

The start of all things Maedia!

So, I created this blog to review, rant, and support "Maedia" that influence me.

To start off I would like to show you a few things that I've been into lately. You will notice that most of the Maedia I listen to/watch are affiliated with metal and such. So obviously if you aren't a fan of metal this is not the place for you!

For the past few years this band "The Project Hate MCMXCIX" has highly influenced my musical tastes and I have very much grown to like their style. They are an extremely underrated band, and I feel like they aren't mentioned enough. Although they are an anti-religion oriented band, I would like to point out that most of my likings are more of the feel of their music. They are knee-deep in death metal goodness, with a touch of techno to give it a nice mix. The angelic female vocals (they have gone through a few female singers over the years) add a haunting reverence of good to them, whereas their male vocalist J, adds a fucking demonic force to be reckoned with. There is no proper way to describe their sound so I will throw up some links here for you from their best album (in my opinion) of some of their works on youtube.

Song Title: Crawling Through The Infinite Fields of Carnage
Album: In Hora Mortis Nostra

Song Title: Tear Down The Walls of Heaven

These guys recently went through a record label change, and are in the middle of recording their next album which is sure to fucking destroy your FACE. Head over to their website and show them some support, BUY THEIR SHIT! The Project Hate MCMXCIX
