Γεννήθηκε στον Άγιο Αρτέμιο (Γούβα) του Παγκρατίου στις 23 Ιουνίου 1928. Σε ηλικία 15 ετών έχασε σε ατύχημα το ένα του χέρι, όταν έσκασε μια χειροβομβίδα την ώρα που έπαιζε με συμμαθητές του στην Αγία Παρασκευή της Αττικής. Παρόλα αυτά, μπήκε δυναμικά στο χώρο του λαϊκού τραγουδιού και ξεχώρισε με τη φωνή του.
The masters of the riff are back again. So soon, you ask? Well, it appears that Fenriz and Culto have taken the whole old-school values thing completely to heart, and are going to give us a new album every year. But hey, who's complaining other than Transilvanian Hunger purists?
'Dark Thrones and Black Flags' follows on pretty closely from last year's 'F.O.A.D.', and if you enjoyed that last blast of black aggression, you're going to find plenty to love on this new disc. It's all still here: the low-fi "Necrohell II" production, the black metal-tinged with-old school metal-tinged with-punk-tinged with-whatever the hell the gruesome duo feel like, and the great 80s-esque cover. I'm wondering whether this fellow on the front is going to become some kind of Darkthrone Eddie...
The opening track to Dead Kennedys' debut album Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, taking as its starting point the then-new neutron bomb, designed to kill people but leave their valuables intact, "Kill the Poor" defined what the band was all about.
Swords of Chaos’ bludgeoning riffage has left the unsuspecting audiences of their shows perplexed and agitated. This thrilling Reykjavík-foursome has been gathering substantial local admiration with neck-breaking performances since early 2008.
RIP Scott Asheton
"Well alright..." -- the first song on the first Stooges album ranks among the most pertinent statements of intent in recorded history. A barreling riff does nothing more than is absolutely necessary, a guitar solo sends shards of shattered distortion bleeding across the last half of the song, and Iggy Pop's lyrics are a manifesto of disaffected post-teen frustration. "Last year I was 21," he growls, "I didn't have a lot of fun; now I'm gonna be 22, I say 'Oh my and a boo-boo'." And people called the Ramones' rhymes minimal.
