The Betrayer Of Christ

Photobucket


'MoonlightButchery' was an EP put out by none other than JudasIscariot in 2002. JudasIscariot plays mid tempo BlackMetal filled with hate and nihlism. JudasIscariot is a one man band from the united states who relocated to Germany. The sole member Akhenaten has also participated as a live member of Nargaroth. Anyways, this release is pure gold. Its raw, maddening, and filled with contempt for all mankind. I also just read that he has some NSBM ties...apparently another band he was in did a comp entitled 'The Night And The Fog' featuring an array of NSBM bands including SS1488, Kristallnacht, Absurd, and Graveland. the comp was supposed to be a tribute to the NSBM scene. Why is it that most of the BlackMetal bands i like end up being in some way NS. Oh well, its not like i look to BlackMetal for good moral structure or ethics. Oh and i guess now is the time where i am supposed tell some sort of convoluted story about how "i'm not racist, i love basketball"(and yes i have heard that exact phrase uttered in seriousness) but seriously, i feel that racism is a purely retarded aspect of humanities insecurity and ignorance. Besides its just lazy to claim pride in the mere fact that your parents (who happen to share the same ethnicity) once got hammered drunk, forgot protection and thought that an abortion was to expensive, cuz hangers must cost a fortune. Trash comes in all colors... Thus ends my long drawn out explaination of why i'm not a racist, blahblahblah. Enjoy the cold callous hatred of man.
Ps The track 'WinterHeart' rules.

This is my favorite JI release by far.

Oh, and as far as I know, Akhenaten never did an overtly political band. I could be wrong but I don't think any of his numerous side projects ever contributed to those Night & Fog comps. He was linked to Nargaroth, Weltmacht, Debauchery (which I will post soon), and Flagellator. Rumor has it that he is not the warmest of people but I don't think he holds any particular political belief.

Thanks Aesop, wasn't Weltmacht on that comp 'the night and the fog'? Granted i did get a lot of my info from wikipedia, so im am taking it with a grain of salt. Plus when all is said and done, JI is still a great band.

Aesop said...

Ahhh, maybe they were. I only have the second one.

Just downloaded this...thkx. btw, I used to live near alta loma...shitty town. Quite the wasteland aside from the occasional find at dr. strange records.

SvartStøy said...

ya, aside from Dr strange , and the new vegan restaurant, alta loma is pretty void of anything worthwhile. Did you go to alta loma highschool? might i know you, perhaps?

I dunno...grew up in chino but moved to san francisco in 2005. I actually taught high school classes at alta loma hs, chaffey, rancho, etc. Put on shows for a brief spell in ontario at an old italian restaurant (wrangler brutes, lux nova, lack of interest). Played in a few lackluster noise/hardcore bands. I don't regret leaving the area at all.
