About Court In The Act.

No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it. Let me know if any links are broken, I'll remove the post to prevent future annoyance, and will attempt to re-upload the file.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

iTunes Roulette, part I.

In an idea loosely based on The Living Doorway's iPod roulette but with different consequences, I'm going to post a few things (I'm loathe to say 'series' because of the failure of my past series) in which I make an 8tracks playlist of the first few things which come up on my iTunes on shuffle. It will help me to rediscover or discover music, and you to find oddities I might not have otherwise posted. Note that this is likely to be mostly metal as my metal collection is much larger than any other, due to better online resources and the fact that I've been into it for longer than other genres. Here goes:

1) Dimmu Borgir - The Sinister Awakening (off In Sorte Diaboli, 2007)

Well, this is a bad start. I'm sure I liked this back in the seemingly primitive climes of 2007 but it's just a little too clean for me now.

2) System Of A Down - Vicinity Of Obscenity (off Hypnotize, 2005)

Another gateway band. Well known, everyone has an opinion. Next!

3) Charles Bronson - Obligatory Jock Slaughter Song (off Complete Discocrappy, 2000)

This is more like it. Charles Bronson is a good band to check out for those just getting into powerviolence. Fast and angry.

4) Fist - One Percenter (1%) (off Turn The Hell On, 1980)

Actually, Xylem posted this album a while back. I haven't got around to giving it a proper listen yet but this seems like reasonable NWOBHM.

5) Blue Sabbath Black Cheer - Untitled (off Doom Mantra, 2009)

Drone, noisy, apparently hipster but I don't give a fuck, BSBC rule.

6) Drug Problem - Your Dad's Cumming (off Drug Problem, 2007)

I'm sure none of us want that image, but this is the last track off a decent underground powerviolence record. Never bothered to find out much about them though.

7) Proclamation - Tyrants Of Desolation (off Messiah Of Darkness And Impurity, 2008)

Decent, but not top-end, bestial black metal that's fairly well known by those into the scene.

8) The Ruins Of Beverast - The Restless Mills (off Foulest Semen Of A Sheltered Elite, 2009)

Personally I think the Ruins are a little bit overrated but Foulest... is a good album of unorthodox black metal nonetheless.

9) Cradle Of Filth - Dusk And Her Embrace (off Dusk... And Her Embrace, 1996)

I'll warn you in advance of any further weeks that I have mp3s of all the Cradle releases; the later ones more out of morbid curiosity admittedly. This album is their best and is quite stunning.

10) Root - Casilda's Song (off The Temple In The Underworld, 1992)

Everyone who knows black metal knows that the former Czechoslovakia produced some of the best in the style, and this Root album is one of the best Czech albums.

11) Noothgrush - Stasis (off Erode The Person, 2006)

Criminally underrated sludge that really should be seen on the same tier as the likes of Grief and Eyehategod.

12) Deicide - Mephistopheles (off Deicide, 1990)

Nothing much needs to be said about Deicide's debut - it's rightly seen as a death metal classic.

13) Anaal Nathrakh - Atavism (off When Fire Rains Down From The Sky, Mankind Shall Reap As It Has Sown, 2003)

Coming pre-Domine Non Es Dignus, this is fairly raw for Anaal Nathrakh, but everything they've released is great in my opinion.

14) Death In June - Hail The White Grain (off Brown Book, 2000)

These neofolk legends simply don't have any bad material.

15) Attitude Adjustment - No Way Back (off No Way Back, 2011)

This album was surprisingly strong for a reunion album and easily matches up to more recent material of their peers.
