Hunter of Liturgy

Jeff Tandy, creator of the above photo, writes:

"I'm calling you out, Hunt-Hendrix! I'll be at Martyrdoom Fest in Brooklyn on June 30, 2012. I hate you. I hate what you do. Come down and we'll fight!... I will feed you all the Brooklyn sidewalk you can eat, HHH. I'll show you the side of black metal you don't have the fortitude or will to explore. Seriously, I will fuck you up."
The above challenge was issued to the the Liturgy frontman in a Facebook group called "Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, come fight me." The creator, Jeff Tandy of Birth A.D., Averse Sefira and an ex-live member of Krieg, is not making his feelings about the Liturgy frontman secret, though it's hard to take the group completely seriously with photos like the one above. I hope it's not real though. Exerting your energy into bands you don't like takes away from finding bands that you do.

UPDATE: The Facebook group has been removed.

Though Jeff Tandy will be there, neither Jeff nor Hunter will be performing at the Martyrdoom Festival on June 30th at Public Assembly. Tickets are still available (no word on whether Hunter plans to attend).

Hunter will be performing at Metallica's Orion Festival in June though... along with bands like (?!?) Modest Mouse and Arctic Monkeys.

Ugh, you black metal fans are such meatheads. There's nothing wrong with transcendentally going down on HHH's 2-inch cock and washing his cum down with a big bowl of hummus. Don't you realize how dated your heteronormative ways are in this progressive society?

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 2:34 PM

I don't think anyone said that if Jeff or Hunter, or Jeff AND Hunter, want to suck a little cock in the privacy of their own bedroom that we should try to interrupt it. After all, they are both adults. If they like to do that, then it's within their Constitutional rights to do so. But for the love of Pete do we need to see their open flirtations here on BV? I mean, if you guys like each other then send each other texts, or buy those crotchless chaps or whatever, but I don't want to read about your queer "No, I Love YOU" bullshit here, yaknowhatimsayin?

So according to Jeff Tandy it is less a transgression to play generic, uninspired Black Metal, than trendy, pretentious Black Metal? This reeks as a bid to prove kvltness and draw attention a mediocre band, in turn it draws attention to two.

I don't think 4:33 is supposed to be HHH, I think it's a guy who just wants to hurt the other guy.

For that matter, HHH is Hunter Hearst Helmsley, not this dude in this band.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 5:15 PM

Birth A.D. is crossover thrash.

Averse Sefira is black metal.

Liturgy is lite/soft rock pretending to be black metal. It's music for silly, gay hipsters.

Gay hipsters? What am I saying? That's an oxymoron.

Posted by Ferrist Bueller | February 8, 2012 5:17 PM

Hipsters should really create their own genre of music and stop trying to wedge their way into metal.

And all I want from the hipster community is to keep their gay pride advocacy out of black metal. Transcedental black metal translates to gay shit. Like I said, glam metal is a perfect genre for you guys to embrace.

Posted by Ferrist Bueller | February 8, 2012 5:46 PM

Hey Ferrist Bueller (aka Jeff Tandy), Stop complaining about genres translating into "gay shit." You sound fucking ridiculous.

Genres don't mean shit. No one cares about your rules or what brand of metal you are trying to protect. "Hipsters" own metal, so deal with it and stay in Texas.

Hmmmmmm.....I think Jeff probably meant "fuck" instead of "fight". Also, "love" instead of "hate" and "cock" in the place of "Brooklyn sidewalk". Plus, he needs to take the "up" out of "Seriously, I will fuck you up". See? FIXED. All he needed was an editor to reveal his true feelings and desires. T R U T H.

Hi guys, average hipsters here. Matter of fact, I'm speaking for all hipsters when I make this comment. I'm a recent 23 year old male, fashionable hipster living in Brooklyn and I must say that I don't know who Jeff Tandy is and I really couldn't care less. I do however would like my asshole pummeled by a hung guy (preferably black)while we listen to my Wolves In the Throne Room, Liturgy and Isis records.

I get ruttish when a hung cock is in my presence and my favorite transcendental, gay-friendly black metal band is playing in the vicinity.

Someone, come give me some cock, please.

Black Metal has always been about closeted homosexual men trying desperately to hide their urges to get fucked up the ass by the entire football team.

It is and always has been a morbidly pathetic scene. One that lends itself to parody and ridicule.

Posted by Your Daddy, Fucker | February 9, 2012 9:20 AM

Tandy responds:

"Contrary to the impression that I've given, I don't mean the guy any actual harm. Then again, I won't reserve any kind words for him until he drops the charade and stops calling his music Black Metal."

I'm confused, is black metal just metal but played by black people? Is the Tandy fellow black and so he is mad at the dude in the picture who is white because the white dude claims to play black metal?

"we wear leather and spikes which have never been associated with the homosexual scene unlike those gay dudes in liturgy who dress like normal guys."

Nice marketing scheme by Jeff Tandy. He went from the guy no one had ever heard of, to the guy who everyone thinks is a pussy. Nice way to flip the script Jeff.

Dear Left Hand Path, I need an emergency interview to sound smart! - Tandy

Posted by Anonymous | February 9, 2012 5:32 PM

Interviewer:

And now you’re calling out the frontman of Liturgy. What did Hunter Hunt-Hendrix ever do to you?

Jeff Tandy:

That's a fair question, and in point of fact he didn't do anything to me specifically. Then again, he seems to be content to say what Black Metal is and isn't when nobody asked him. It's convenient that his "manifesto" of Black Metal fits exactly with what his decidedly non-Black Metal band is doing, and I'm far from the only one who has downed him for it.

AGRATH (check them out)

NEGATIVE PLANE (from Florida, moved to Brooklyn a few yrs ago)

LOL@ 8:47 PM Liturgy are the ONLY black metal band that matters right now. All you black metal sausages are just mad because Hunter doesn't live in his parents basement and gets some pussy every so often. Or as you guys would word it; "sacrilege".

Man, that cringe worthy interview from The Left Hand Path makes me sad for his parents. I bet his mother has cried herself to sleep many nights praying that he'd "grow up and/or out of this". Spending every day second guessing how you raised your child, and where you went wrong must be extremely exhausting and depressing.

"What kind of fools" indeed.

@9:23 an irrelevant sausage is an encyclopedia on irrelevant sausage. what a shocker.

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 3:57 PM

I just watched the interview that 9:23 linked to. I don't particularly like Liturgy (especially that Scion interview), but Jeff seems to be profoundly insular and simple. He quotes Marduk's singer saying in regards to Leviathan "I don't know what that is, and I don't want to know" as "the right attitude to have"? Wow. Living in a world that small and fearful must be excruciatingly painful. Like one of the commentators said above; Jeff's to be pitied.

He mentions Absu as one of the bands who established a very narrow (black metal) legacy that "hipster black metal" is "causing horrible damage to". Didn't Absu go on tour with Zoroaster in Europe in 2009? How much more "hipster" can you get? I could go on, but I digress.

I also read in his LHP interview where he advocates hurting people ("hipsters" i.e. anyone who doesn't look the same as you) at metal shows. Judging from his swift backpedaling and retreat, he's probably not actually doing any of this himself. "Do as I say and not as I do"? *co-hypocrite-ugh* THIS IS WHAT'S WRONG WITH AMERICAN BLACK METAL. Jeff wants to point fingers at everyone but himself. I love that this guy is going to tell anyone what to think. Isn't that the EXACT reason why he claims to hate Hunter?

this boils down to one word

jealously

jeff tandy is upset because liturgy and wolves in the throne room are getting all the attention he thinks he deserves for himself

i dont remember anyone ever asking jeff what is or isnt black metal either

2000 plays on birth ads myspace and 2000 visits to their reverb nation page

no one gives a shit about his band or what he thinks

enjoy this little bump while it lasts asshole.

@1:19 AM Yep. Birth A.D.s Parasites Die has 11,000 views on youtube (posted 2 years ago). Liturgys Returner has more than 75,000 (posted nine months ago). Sour fucking grapes (I'm the only one who has ever used that phrase correctly).

Get fucked Jeff.

It's the need for hyperbole black metal, according to Mr. Tandy in his apologia, rather than hyperborean. After puffing his chest up about it, he decided not to steal HHH's lunch money today.

Eh, there's room enough in the genre for random philosophers, alcoholwits and every egomaniacal musician in between. Best thing is to ask more successful and prominent bands to show their support for lesser known acts by having them open for them.

Posted by gelatinousgoo | February 14, 2012 4:00 PM

If you hipsters think black metal is so awful and metalheads so dumb, why don't you leave it the hell alone and just do your own thing. Its quite puzzling, why you're attracted to yet repulsed by metal.

Metalheads are not copying hipsters, it's you hipsters copying us.

I am a college-educated professional living in Brooklyn, and also a metalhead, and I harbor no hatred for hipsters in general. However, respect has to be mutual and if you trash us and denigrate what we hold dear, we take it personally.

If you like Liturgy, it's a pretty good indication you're not a metalhead. That means we don't care what you think.

Liturgy is NOT black metal, and never will be....no matter what spin that faggot HHH wants to put on the genre.The fact of the matter is that LITURGY is fronted my some hipster queer with an overblown ego that desperately wants to be viewed as some "scholarly" and "revolutionary" figure in the 3rd wave of black metal....Eat a cock HHH, you pseudo-intellectual, self-aggrandizing piece of shit.

Sour fucking grapes (I'm the only one who has ever used that phrase correctly)." Indicitive of the hipster's mainstream sensibilities and missunderstanding of substance over style. Liturgy and their ilk are trying to shift metal to indie rock, both sonically, aesthetically and value wise. We're not fooled.
