What can I say? I have in my hands now the dream of every Metalhead that enjoys Pop music and video games (if there's any out there, that's it), BLACKSEED BOYS ladies and gentlemen! This is one of the most original projects that I've heard in a long time!!
Imagine this, you're in your house, but there's only one CD player, you just got home and you're tired, you want to relax and of course, listen to some of your records, but Damn! As soon you take out a couple of CDs to listen, your little teenager sister has taken possession of the CD player and she's putting a CD. The electronic drum beats start piercing your ears, is.. is.. no.. it can't be, but as soon the little brat starts screaming wildly HOWIE AHHH BRIAN I LOVE YOU!! You know is true… The Backstreet Boys, at full volume! Now you have to listen to the whole CD several times before the little monster gets tired of singing and dancing to those horrible tunes… As soon things calm down (after 3 spins of that hellish sound), you swear that you'll get revenge! But how? And with what? You've got to put the heaviest and most evil record you possess, so evil and so heavy that you're afraid to listen it as well.
But why put the most heaviest records, if every single CD you have sounds the same to your little sis? Then it comes you! You have to hit her where it hurts the most, in her frenzied fanatic heart!
So, picture this, your sister is in her bedroom reading her "Seventeen" magazine and suddenly, it starts… BLACKSEED BOYS! And a cover version of the Backstreet Boys hit single "Quit Playing Games With My Heart"…in Black Metal! Can you imagine the face on her as she hears her favourite boy band (and her favourite song too!) transformed into shrieks and distorted guitars? YEAH! REVENGE!
On a side note, I'm a grown man now, so is my sister, so the new wave of boy bands didn't get onto my nerves, but there was a time when those damned New Kids On The Block were in my sister's player all day long, so if on your next record you include a cover of the NKOTB, I would be eternally in debt (after more than 10 years revenge will be mine!! Watch out sis!!!)
Anyway, that's what BLACKSEED BOYS are all about, they mock both commercial Pop music and "Evil" Black Metal, making covers of commercial pop music, in Black Metal!
So if you want to listen to "classic" songs of Britney Spears, Madonna, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan and many more, get this one quickly!! (or download some songs at their official site). But wait! Besides the Pop covers, they also do Metalized versions of tunes from some video games like Mario Bros., Castlevania and Shadowgate, being a big gamer myself I find this a nice bonus! But wait again! If you purchase this now you also get one nice cover version of DARK FUNERAL's "The Secrets Of The Black Arts" nicely done and with a rapping section included!
No no no, don't stop reading, if you call in the next five minutes they'll throw an extra track! A Black Metal version à la CRADLE OF FILTH of that Christmas classic "Jingle Bells", you can be the centre of attention at the next Christmas family gathering!
So, let's review what you get:
Pop songs covered in "True" Black Metal
Metalized video games Tunes
Nicely done cover of DARK FUNERAL (don't forget the rapping!)
"Jingle Bells", just the way your parents like it!
Call now, the operators are waiting! (Online October 25, 2003)
