First of all, i must start this post by apologizing to you all for the lack of posts lately. I'm on a constant daily struggle to keep what's left of my little sanity as i try to coordinate several projects at the same time at work, with 100F temperature, no air conditioner, etc, etc, etc. I also have a ton of requests in line for my inbox, so i thank you all who took time to drop some lines, i can assure you that i will get there in time. Besides that, it's been already one year that Forever Cursed is ruining your lives, sucking up what's left of your precious social life (like you ever had one...). After a year i finally hit 100 official followers on Blogger (i know there are many of you anonymously out there) but I'm glad to see that number come up. With that said my big airhead realized it's been a year, a fucking year, with lots of great music, new artists, new albums and some disappointments as well... but let's keep those on the outside.
Forever Cursed exists for this personal escape of mine, a place where i want to share what i like when it comes to music, what i find new and i really think you guys should hear, thinking that you will probably enjoy it. I make a stupid smile on my face every time a receive an email from an avid follower, thanking me or even from the least expected... members of some of the bands i post here, and i mean from some very known bands, which i find awesome as if I'm blessed from the Gods themselves. It might sound silly i know but man... it's so cool. I must not also forget my blog friends that i've made along this path, specially thanking to Mr JGD from the amazing The Living Doorway which is the blasphemous portal that induces most of the traffic i get here on Forever Cursed. And of course all of my fellow brothers in arms that once in a while give to my humble blog, a shout-out or mention my virtual person, Equivoke, Blackened Slugs, Annihilate Next Week, Perception Through Dissonance, Elementary Revolt, Slays For Days, Von Frost, etc. And i must not forget the ones who have fall in the past but have not been forgotten, I'm talking about zito's Midnight Mass and JT from Coffinpsalms.
To you all i thank you because somehow you ended up influencing what i have created here.
And now in order to complete this ritual i bring you something that has influenced me. "Häxan" a 1922 classic Swedish/Danish silent horror film written and directed by Benjamin Christensen. Based partly on Christensen's study of the Malleus Maleficarum, a 15th-century German guide for inquisitors, "Häxan" is a study of how superstition and the misunderstanding of diseases and mental illness could lead to the hysteria of the witch-hunts. The film was made as a documentary but contains dramatized sequences that are comparable to horror films.
Some of you might have already seen it, and some of you probably still didn't got the chance. If you already seen it, now it's the perfect time to remember this classic. It was the perfect way i found to say "Thank you" to you all. Let's what lies ahead. One day at a time. Forever Grateful. Forever Cursed.
Note: Remember to download all 8 parts. I just begin by unzipping "part I" with Unrar software (Mac) and it works just fine. If you find any kind of problem with the files, just let me know.
