Banks Violette

Artista nacido el año 1973 en Ithaca, Nueva York y que ha expuesta en diversos museos tanto de Estados Unidos como de Europa.

"Violette continues to make work, frequently using collaboration as a springboard for his new installations. Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))) provided the soundtrack for Violette's 2007 double show at Team Gallery and Gladstone Gallery in New York."


Death metal, ritual murder and teenage suicide are starting points for Banks Violette. His work is notable for combining references to excess from youth culture with minimalist form, often using glossy black and ghostly white materials.

According to Violette, the inspiration of the piece was a series of instances of arson committed by rival metal enthusiasts in Norway, which culminated in the 1993 knife murder of Øystein Aarseth, singer of the black metal band Mayhem by Varg Vikernes of the band Burzum.

The 13 commandments of DISHAMMER:
1. Must came from down-under, from the darkest hidden and forgotten place in the bottom of your morbid soul.
2. Make your blood boil to maximum levels of radiation all day and night long.
3. Despite any current influence going back to the 80s devouring your old Motšrhead, Bathory, Discharge and Celtic Frost 12"s.
4. Shit on god, on all sacred things, on the christian church, on child-molester priests with their deviated whore nuns.
5. Turn crosses upside down and make pentagrams bleed in your werewolf chest.
6. Focus your anxiety in Satan's coming, in the end of the world, in the stupidity of your miserable and enslaved to the system life.
7. Disturb your mind with tasteful vintage pornography and sexploitation.
8. Sit upon broken glass while you growl and scream.
9. Fill the bong with unholy water and strychnine, then smoke bone ashes together with some sick brown and green.
10. Expect to be buried alive and accept it, prey for catalepsy.
11. Make of Asmodeus, Azazel, Baal, and Astaroth your best friends.
12. Recognize Tura Satana as your one and only goddess, mother, sister and lover.
13. Remember sooner or later you DIE, so live fast you sleazy scumbag motherfucker.

Discográficas, vol. 2

H.M.S.S.
(Heavy Metal Super Star)

Sello japonés fundado por Yohta Takahashi y que en un principio tenía como objetivo apoyar a la banda de Black/Thrash Metal Sabbat, pero que posteriormente abrió sus puertas a otras bandas de Japón como Abigail o Unholy Grave y también internacionales: Nunslaughter o Impiety.




"Thanks for your long time support to this small but core label. Since we launched up in the year of 1999 as a label, or in 1987 as an underground zine, a plenty of time has passed away and still the metal is in active. We wish this label is standing in a part of hitory.

HMSS was found for supporting Sabbat out of Japan because when we start this action, there were unfortuantelly no domestic indie label which strongly... diehard-ly... and blindly supports the band even Sabbat at that moment was rising up the STARDOM as a national black metal hero in the very far east. We believe what we did through HMSS could get a great benefit onto the scene and many of you are enjoying the Sabbat on time. Ooops, We are very proud that we could get in touch with some able bands beside Sabbat/Gorgon. Unholy Grave, Nunslaughter, Impiety and now Abigail & Voidd. Hope you'll try them, these sweet poisons.

We are sorry that our pricing is much expensive compairing with other labels from Euro/USA. Because we make vinyls in the States, so far away, and we have to spend huge money for transporting, also bank charges are one of the top cost problem for us. And Japan market is very narrow and we can't make more than 100-150. It effects direct to the price.

To make your satisfaction fully enough, we have taken the handmade process in manufacturing the items. We make the T-shirts by ourselves, we make the jackets by ourselves and we make all by ourselves. Please do understand we supply you records with fantasy.

About foreign bands, we are not thinking forward to do new jobs. Because almoast all of the foreign bands who contact us are without own strategy. HMSS is not a cheap label to make your records instantly and sell terribly cheap like air for making small money. Our satisfaction is not at be an underground charisma, but at being a true supporter for maniac FANS. If your band considers well and deep about the future of the scene, we can offer you some space for activities. But we can't help you if you just play bands without strategy. What's your goal ?

We hate alot of indie labels makes cheap die-hard version and collecting money from you. It brings the very end to the scene itself. Say NO to these fake die-hards like color vinyl, small patch, nice looking jacket (There is a company in USA which makes special jackets) etc. That's the reason why we made Sabbat-UUU doLP and Nunslaughter NNN LP. Find yourself what we meant of.

HMSS of 2008 will be never changed. We're keeping going on this local jobs for maniac fans. If you're intend to make money by reselling our items on e-bay, quit yourself from the scene.

Thanks,
Yohta Takahashi"


Además de los anteriormente mencionados, otras de las formaciones que han publicado con HMSS son: Metalucifer, Butcher ABC, Magnesium o Voidd.
