Von

Von is a black metal band from San Francisco, California, USA. They are thought to be the first American black metal band, and have strongly influenced the second wave of black metal.

Von was formed in 1987 by Jason "Venien" Ventura and Shawn "Goat" Calizo. After Venien (temporarily for personal reasons) departed in late 1990, Goat and Snake played one gig as a duo. In early 1991 Kill played bass in the band and the trio recorded their second demo, Satanic Blood. During 1991 Von played a couple of live gigs and recorded another demo, Blood Angel, which was never released on its own. The band disbanded shortly after the release of Satanic Blood in 1992. - [Wiki]

Von splintered, with Venien taking the moniker with him and Goat forming Von Goat. Venien's newly resussitated incarnation of Von are preparing to release Satanic Blood via their own Von Records imprint and you can stream a song from it below. This version of Von will play NYC for the first time December 11 at Saint Vitus with support still TBA. Tickets are on sale.

Stream that Von track below.

They had to deliver a lot of pizzas to fund that demo.

Oh, OK.

1:02- Retard, the vast majority of the scarf comments made here are in RESPONSE to sausage comments made earlier in a comment thread.

Sausages seem tough on anonymous blogs, but when challenged to me their adversary on the Jay St. Subway platform or Brooklyn Bowl they giggle nervously, sweat profusely and hide in the closet (ironic amirite)
LIKE A LITTLE BITCH

I know that's right

I'm 8:25, and until now that was my first and only post on this one, but nice try, 5:20. It's hard to comprehend that your life sucks so much that you have nothing better to do at 5 am.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2012 9:22 AM

5:20 is the guy behind the Jay Street Massacre? The one where YOU didn't show up? The one where you claimed that 'only a homeless guy showed up' even though I was there waiting for you? Talk about "still waiting" - you're the biggest phony on the board.

LOLOLOLOL @ 9:33

Do you honestly think people don't remember how you got called out to that spot in east new york and then PRETENDED you showed up until someone else called you out with google street view?

"I'm hacked into someone's wireless with my IPAD"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. What a poser

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2012 9:44 AM

^ huh? Actually I'm pretty sure that by that point in the conversation some other trolls had taken over responding for me.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2012 9:49 AM

Ahh, my mistake actually, after re reading it looks like 9:33 was the dude who called out the fake tough guy who trolls the metal page.

So, not only did 5:20 pretend to show up at that one spot in east ny, but he lied about meeting up with 9:33? Dude needs to give it a rest.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2012 9:52 AM

These two could totally solve this by meeting at the corner of Main Street and Park... in Indianapolis, where they both obviously live.

You guys have totally confused me, but if you follow the line of thought you probably have no life and spend an inordinate amount of time on this board. Moving on ....

you know it wouldn't cost all that much to press an album with no actual music on it, and then make up a story about recording a full album, destroying the master tapes, and pressing an unlistenable album.

Buckeye Shrimper is named that exactly because he comes on here claiming to be the big ol/ sausage metal head but was totally called out for being a midwestern homosexual that is so ashamed of himself he has to pretend to be something else.

Don't make the bully more than he is. He is a paper lion.

1:45 is really really hoping that 10:43 writes back. Gay Date has been so slow for him lately. Come on 10:43, write back so this projecting homo can go jack off in the bathroom.
