Galactic Empire Band Photo

As you all know, Black Metal Friday is our weekly celebration of the worship of “The Dark Side” in heavy metal music. Well, in honor of today’s long-awaited premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, we here at Geeks of Doom present to you a video from the folks over at Galactic Empire. In the clip, we get to check out a metal rendition of John Williams’ iconic Star Wars theme performed not for the dark side but rather by the dark side.

That’s right kiddies, Darth Vader, a shadow guard, and an imperial guard on lead guitars; a run of the mill storm trooper on bass (hey, are they implying that bass players are non-descript?); everyone’s favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett on drums; and one very unlucky guitar tech. So take the advice of a very wise master: “Watch it below, you must… Enjoy it, you will.”

Dark Throne Band Photo

This week’s Black Metal Friday band needs no introduction. Norwegian legends Darkthrone are amongst a very small handful of bands that kick started the second wave of black metal in the early ’90s. Their “unholy trinity” of albums, A Blaze in the Northern Sky,Under a Funeral Moon and Transilvanian Hunger as well as their fiercely DIY ethic are widely considered to be the template for most of the black metal that followed.

The duo behind Darkthrone, Fenriz and Nocturno Culto have steered away from black metal in recent years in favor of a more crust punk approach but they will always be held in the highest reverence for their contributions to the dark genre. Here, from A Blaze in the Northern Sky, is Darkthrone with the classic anthem “In the Shadow of the Horns.” Crank it up and throw some horns of your own in honor of the masters, Darkthrone.

I Band Photo black metal friday

After yesterday’s not so surprising announcement from Immortal frontman Abbath that he is disbanding that pioneering Norwegian black metal band due to an ongoing disputes with his longtime bandmates, I started thinking about the absolutely exceptional record that he crafted in 2006 with his metal supergroup I. In addition to Abbath the band features his Immortal bandmate Armagedda, along with Gorgoroth bassist TC King, and Enslaved’s Ice Dale.

Abbath has always said that the group is not a one-off despite the fact that their one and only record thus far, the mind-blowing Between Two Worlds, is nearly ten years old. The singer and guitarist has stated multiple times that he is working on songs for a sophomore effort. Now that he seems to have some free time on his hands, let’s hope that that comes to fruition sooner than later.

Goatwhore Band Photo

New Orleans’ blackened thrash band Goatwhore arose from the ashes of two of that city’s most legendary bands. When Acid Bath broke up, guitarist Sammy Duet hooked up with former Soilent Green singer Ben Falgoust, guitarist Ben Stout, bassist Patrick Bruders, and drummer Zak Nolan. They took their moniker from an Aleister Crowley ritual involving goat semen (don’t ask!). Over the course of the last 18 years, Goatwhore has delivered 6 albums of the most brutal black thrash ever conceived. The band’s unrelenting assault both live and on record has garnered them a rabid following that continues to grow.

Here, with the opening track of their fourth album, 2009’s Carving Out the Eyes of God, is Goatwhore with their anthem “Apocalyptic Havoc.”

Thulcandra Band Photo

Germany’s Thulcandra take their name from the legendary black metal band Darkthrone’s 1989 demo of the same name. Darkthrone had borrowed the term from the C.S. Lewis novel Out of the Silent Planet.

Over the course of the last five years, Thulcandra have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the world of black metal. On February 10, 2015, they released their third full-length album, Ascension Lost, and based on early reviews, it seems like their stock will continue to rise.

For this edition of Black Metal Friday, we revisit Thulcandra’s awe-inspiring debut album — 2010’s Fallen Angel’s Dominion. Here is the mighty Thulcandra with “Legions of Darkness.”
