General Metal Discussions » 'Bad', Inept and Weird Metal
hi,
I was wondering if there are some metal connoisseurs out there who can name me some bands and records that fall into the 'weird and /or crappy metal' category. I am not looking for 'bad' as in mediocre and generic. I searching for ineptly played stuff, lo-fi as fuck recording, outsiders, oddities, what have you. I am familiar with the 'famous' ones (Kuster, Killer Fox, Damien Storm, Wheelz Of Steel, pretty much everything on Metal Enterprises and the 'Incredibly Strange Metal comp, etc.). I like this kinda stuff, but I'm not so mucch into Myspace-era junk and Bedroom Black Metal (except the truly deranged stuff like Exmortes...)

thanks

Try KILSLUG - (1985) - Answer The Call - it's truely odd'n'weird performance. Another weird homemade "ineptity" is Putnam's SCREAMING GORE GUTS - (1985) - We Are Fucking God. Some of early proto-BM acts from mid 80s sound like fucking weird and perverted necrochaos (go try KØTSEN, BLOOD DEATH, HELLHOUSE, HELLISH TORMENT, SATAN’S MASSACRE, BLACK AGGRESSOR, BLOODSLAUGHTER and SLAUGHTER HAMMER), early BLOOD tapes and Belgian HELLSAW… Tons of them.

The weirdest band I've ever found has to be AAAAARGH! Bloody 2-Handed Chainaxe Blow!

http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/AAA ... Blow/24613

Their site (http://perso.club-internet.fr/thaumas/) used to be filled with long philosophical reasonings behind their songs, but it's long since disappeared, and all I remember from it was that the name was chosen simply to be at the top of alphabetical lists, the rest being a 'random cheesy gore combination'. You can get some idea of what they were going for by reading the lyrics.....I still don't have much idea.

It was impossible even then to find their albums, but they did have one song for download I still have, which is probably the only surviving evidence that they ever even existed:
http://www.mediafire.com/?461ik2vq22d9k5c

There's a fragment of a biography on a MA mirror site, but unfortunately cuts off....seems the only information that hasn't disappeared yet:

"AAAAARGH ! Bloody 2-Handed Chainaxe Blow was formed during summer '99, composed of the following members : bekal ( vocals, guitars ) and thaumas not ( guitars ). Bekal has since departed. He was replaced for the recording of The Musical Body by Fredericksson Vincent Nietzsche ( vocals&bass ). Fredericksson Vincent Nietzsche has no background. That's what is really cool about him. He was recruited because he happened to be the next available dude living accross the street who could produce the raspy vocals. He plays the bass on occasion, may even get off by ramming the neck into his asshole. But he's no homo. Homos aren't tolerated on this band. Bekal started to play the electric guitar near ` toyear minus 1996 ` years and a half ago. He's been acting in a short-lived hardcore band but nothing concrete came out of it. Nowadays he takes private lessons and perspires over old-Megadeth scores. He's mainly into old-school / heavy metal : Iron Maiden, Megadeth, old Metallica including '... and justice for all' ( but not Judas Priest ), though he's not against a Death or a Dimmu Borgir from time to time. He tries to write songs for AAAAARGH ! 's next blessed offering. Thaumas as for him never snapped a string til this famous summer. Now he's reaching out for being crowned as the most prolific stringhunter to have ever scourged the earth. A lazy asshole bound to computer science, psychoanalysis, basketball and creative nihilism. His tastes roll between Death's 'Human', Immortal's 'Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism' and Burzum's 'Hvis Lyset Tar Oss' ( non-exhaustive list ). He doesn't care that much and proclaims that if God is, then he's not ( if he could, he'd fuck everybody around, damn' ! ). The project started when thaumas musically adapted the 'I am Dead / The Wrong Master' piece of lyrics. From then on the though processes have remained the same : it's uncompromising heavy music not backed up by a strong sense of conceptualism and symbolism but rather c......"


So yeah, that's probably the weirdest band I (have) know(n).....but then there's always Zarach 'Baal' Tharagh.....

"Shores of Evening - The Shore of Evening" is some really odd and sloppy metal, if you can even call it metal. The weirdest number is the one called "Does It Ever Change" and half of the album is some sugary ballad nonsense. Only good thing about this abortion is this cool cover art.

I want to hear more AAAAARGH! That is too funny. Imagine they are walking down the street and fans greet them "Argh!", and others think a fight or murder is about to happen.
That is also genius to use for a band name for concerts. If the audience is already yelling, it sounds like "Arrrrrrrrrrhh!!" anyway.

I like Zarach 'Baal' Tharagh, but that guy releases so many recordings, it stops being cult.

Plenty of weird bands can fit into this 'Bad', Inept and Weird Metal category.
I know many that have heard Satan's God don't care about him. Depends which song or part of a song you heard.

In Italy we have lot of weird "metal" bands...some of them have demented and funny italian lyrics that
prevent foreigners from understanding and enjoying them (bands as Acido,Le Trombe di Falloppio,Nanowar
Prophilax,Gli Atroci,Longobardeth,Kurnalcool etc. etc.) ...not to mention crappy bands with bad or weird playing or production,
especially in the 80s and 90's some of them released crazy demos with silly songs,some weird packaging
as for example the grunge band called Minerva (from my hometown,their name,in origin coming from an ancient
roman goddess,in Italy also became the name of a well known brand of matches....) that put the tape in a match box...

when I think weird, Albino Slug come to my mind immediatly....
They are hard to describe since they are amazing and at the same time weird, it makes you feel the music sometimes has no sense... (what)
but certainly there is too much potential there... anyway, here it is

Extra Hot Sauce is one of the weirder metal bands I've heard. They came across as a Stormtroopers of Death knockoff (Dan Lilker played drums for EHS and bass for SOD) but with a lower recording budget and crappier equipment.

Possibly the worst release i've ever heard:



(Please don't comment on the youtube video about how bad it is so the dude doesn't delete the video, i like being able to send people this crap band.)

Despite the trashy sound, it's the lyrics that do it for me, they are cringy as well (JESUS LOVES ME), and the delivery in some places is so hard to listen to it may make you laugh (like the vocalist is crying in the most annoying manner possible).

As far as weirdness goes Heviasurus gets my vote. The concept is kind of cool, kids into metal is a good thing, but the dinosaurs just look really weird and uncomfortable. Their music was kind of bad too, but it was aimed at kids so it was never supposed to be great

The best weirdness is the unintentional kind I think, stuff like Living Death or Carrion. Or this bunch from the Netherlands. I wouldn't call it bad or inept, I actually really like this song, but what the hell is he singing? It's in English but aside from the occasional phrase ("the flying monsters") I can't make out a word (shock)

Thrash Queen - Manslayer (1984)

One of the better known bands in this infamous category. This is an all female "feminist" thrash metal band from Connecticut. The music is, well, barely passable as punk rock let alone heavy metal. I think they were probably trying to shoot for something like early Anthrax. If you know about The Shaggs, well imagine if they started making hard rock or punk rock instead of 60s pop. If there is such a thing as "Outsider Metal", this is the closest approximation. Drum beat that doesn't change through the whole album. Dry and grating vocals. Incompetent guitarist playing one stolen riff per song. Production is pretty terrible also. Sorry if you were looking for another band like Girlschool.
