Staff review by

Black Metal is a genre that, despite popular belief, is not completely impervious to trends. One of the bands that painfully proved that is the American Velvet Cacoon. Within very little time, they became one of the most controversial and notorious Black Metal bands in the scene. An endless amount of rumours about drug-abuse, the "diesel harp" guitar, the stolen music and their political ideas turned almost every forum in a playground for giddy little kids, expressing their love or disgust for the band. And about a year later, it all turned out to be one big hoax. But what a brilliantly played, painfully reflective hoax it was.

  I miss the good old days when Velvet Cacoon span their web of bullshit and fakery. Also discovered this band thanks to them "ripping" off their music (bit of a coincidence they're both from Portland, eh).

Rating: 6 I miss more Clair Cassis than I miss Velvet Cacoon
