Well, friends of the metal persuasion, that time of year has rolled around again. The holiday season is upon us, time to show up on doorsteps with your electric twangers and sing songs about roasting nuts, burn down churches, and, most of all, it’s time to avoid all your repulsive metalhead friends that might have the nerve to expect a gift. But for those of you who just don’t seem to have that flare for hiding in your closet for two months straight, here are some wallet-emptying items they’re sure to find amusing.
This week, the tech world responds to BREXIT, Microsoft revises Asimov’s laws of robotics, FacebookÂ and YouTube filter out extremist content, Facebook wants you to see more of your friends’ content, why the car in that ad may not be what you think it is,Â Boston Dynamics brings a robot to the home, and much, much more.
This week, Gigaom columnist Tom Cheredar is our guest as we discuss hackers posting personal data from infidelity site Ashley Madison, the NSA‘s best friend is AT&T, does Amazon overwork its employees, selections from POTUS’s playlist, giant robots!… and much much more.
Emperor is one of the very cornerstones of black metal. Led by musical visionaries Ishan and Samoth, this band pretty much singlehandedly invented symphonic black metal. Bands such as Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, and Ne Obliviscaris can trace a direct lineage to this groundbreaking outfit from Bergen, Norway.
Emperor’s debut album, In The Nightside Eclipse, turned 20 years old last year and the band celebrated with a string of high profile headlining slots at festivals across the world. Ishan remains adamant that there will be no new Emperor music as he is currently riding high on the success of his solo works, but die-hards such as myself will always remain hopeful.
From Emperor’s massively influential 1997 sophomore record, Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, this is the official video for the track”The Loss & Curse of Reverence.”
