AMG’s Unsigned Band Rodeo: Deavhronun – Disciples of Cain

“For our second November rodeo we present Deavhronun, a blackened death metal act from Southampton, England. Their Disciples of Cain debut is an intriguing concept album about the infamous period in Norwegian black metal history when Mayhem was beset by a suicide and the murder of band members. Meta? Perhaps. But definitely intriguing.” Mayhem at the Rodeo.

“We’re a wee bit late with our bi-monthly Unsigned Band Rodeo, but nothing can stop the running of the unsigned bands permanently. They just keep running and running and someone’s got to wrangle em’. That somebody, is us! The first of our two November broncos is the debut album from Denver, Colorado black metallers, Sar Isatum.” Mile High Drub.

“After several years of self-righteous elitism where we largely overlooked unsigned acts, it’s high time we make amends. And so we’re bringing AMGs Unsigned Band Rodeo back from the dustbins of history with a fresh paint job and a butt-load of new reviewers! Every other month we will pluck a band from metallic obscurity, review the holy Bejesus out of them and leave them to the mercy of you, the fickle masses. At year’s end we will crown the best in show and shower them with accolades, cheap beer and day old sushi. Now that you know the score, welcome to the Rodeo, mofos!” Aussie doom-drone makes for a wild ride.

“Back in the primordial days of this here blog, we attempted something called “AMG’s Unsigned Band Rodeo.” The basic idea was to select a bunch of unsigned bands and give them the collective review treatment to find the most worthy buried gems. It was our humble effort to remind folks that the metal underground is still an important part of the world of metal. After several years of self-righteous elitism where we largely overlooked unsigned acts, it’s high time we make amends.” Today, we ride (and review).
