Scott Reagers- One time Saint Vitus vocalist.

Nothing has been heard from one of doom's defining vocalists since 1995's Die Healing album. Rumour has it that he works two jobs nowadays to support his family. He did recently make an appearance at a Saint Vitus show last year, but this is not enough for such a unique and hugely talented man.


Kim Ruzz- The Drummer behind Mercy's classic output.

Few hit with the amount of style and technique that he did during the early '80s. Fate was never the same without him and his absence is perhaps one of the many reasons why they were not able to recapture the black magic of their 80's material during their reformation period. Several years ago he released this update, but he has remained in the shadows (pun intended.)


Zephyrous- Darkthrone guitarist from 1987-1993.

Good ol' Ivar Engar played guitar on the groups albums from Soulside Journey through to Under a Funeral Moon (and Goatlord and the demos as well). According to Nocturno Culto he left the group in "much anger" and that alcohol problems may have contributed to his departure. Since then very little has been heard from him but it is still hoped that he may contribute some riffs to future Darkthrone albums.


Zeeb Parkes- The voice of Witchfinder General.

The original Ozzy impersonator has left an undeniable mark upon the annals of 'eavy metal history. Since the release of 1983's 'Friends of Hell' he has completely vanished. The group's guitarist, Phil Cope, recently revealed that 'Zeeb Parkes' was a pseudonym and that he has severed all ties with the groups former vocalist.

"Destitute and empty
Can't stop, thinking of you
You’ve turned my blue skies all cloudy grey

Oh I loved you but lost you
You were so untrue
Yes I loved you but lost you."

Come back Zeeb, all is forgiven.


Johan Langquist, Klas Bergwall and Mats Ekstrom- The guys on 'Epicus...' who didn't do anything afterwards.

What monumental performances each of these men gave on Candlemass's first and finest record, and then.... nothing. Langquist has done select gigs with the band and Mats Ekstrom auditioned for the drum position in Count Raven, but why haven't these guys done more?


Mick Harris: Chuffed and weakened human hurricane.

Still musically active of course, but not as a drummer. In a recent interview to Decibel, Harris admitted that he 'hates' his drumming. He must be the only one, as he's certainly one of the master's of the blast beat in my opinion.


So yeah.

Cirith Ungol: a veritable treasure trove of 'where are they now'-ness.

Greg Lindstrom now plays bass in heavy rockers Falcon and Jerry Fogle sadly lost his battle with the bottle in the late 1990s. Other than that the groups surviving members have remained sadly quiet. Many a CU fan clings on to the hope that they will one-day return: to rid this worthless speck of burning dust from cringing human sheep.

"The being called Ungol is dead
its resurrection is doubtful.
But heed it's teachings oh faithful
for on these memoratic disks contain
the wisdom of the ages
and by your iron fists
may the horror
of false metal be extinguished.
As you now join the swelling ranks of the Legions of Chaos
together we will drive before us
the cringing herd of False Metal
crush their spineless lackeys
and purge the world of their mutant plague!!!"

Randy 'thrasher' Foxe: Legendary Manilla Road Drummer, as well as sometime keyboardist.

The master of unfathomably impossible drumming during his stint with the Road from 'Open the Gates' until 'Courts of Chaos'. Many a metalhead would undoubtedly give their patch-jacket to hear him drum again.

Martin Eric Ain: Frost's bassist and co-architect.

On both occasions that Frost has broken up Martin has remained strangely quiet. Perhaps he will one day re-emerge with a new band and break free from under Tom's shadow. Who knows?


Reed St Mark: One of metal's most underrated drummers, as well as the man who gave CF that extra 'oompph' throughout some of their finest material.

The big sticked one was only briefly involved in Celtic Frost's reunion plans. He also was fired/left Triptykon at a formative stage.

Chuck Biscuits: Former Danzig, DOA, Black Flag and Social Distortion drummer.

Probably the finest punk rock drummer of all time, and he wasn't too shabby in Danzig either. It was recently announced that he was dead and even this failed to prompt any kind of announcement of any sort from the Canadian drummer.

Les Binks: The finest drummer Priest ever had.

Scott Travis? Pah. Simon Phillips was fantastic too, although only a session drummer. Since being fired for not being boring enough, Binks has had brief stints with Tytan and Lionheart. He now plays in a blues band. Ever since his departure Priest have lacked the ability to be subtle.

Ritchie Blackmore's ability to rock: need I say anything else? If you're going to prance around in tights at least have the music to back it up!


Martin Birch: Producer Extraordinaire.

Since Iron Maiden's 1992 album 'Fear of the Dark' Martin Birch retired from producing to spend more time on the golf course amongst other things. It's a shame because at his finest he brought unparalleled clarity and depth to many a classic album, without ever sacrificing the character of the musicians themselves.

Hellhound Records: German doom metal label.

One time home to Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Count Raven and many more. Closed for business in 1996, apparently the label's owners just took the money and ran... who knew their was money to be made in Doom?

Then why perpetuate my presence by responding? Ah, it doesn't matter anyway; no one posts on this terrible forum.

I know I said liberal arts are useless, but you seriously need to read an engrossing novel.

Paradoxically, that is predictable. I would dare to presume that you read such romantic, "artistic", and fallaciously philosophical literature regularly. God, I hate romantics and "patrons of the arts."

You don't understand me, do you? I started reading it and Atlas Shrugged just to see how they are. My current thoughts: These are my favorite books. I've only really read one book but these are still my favorites. The good guys are just so great and every aspect of the writing is all about what amazing industrialist ubermensch they are, and bad guys are evil for the sake of it, and that's great because I don't have to hurt my brian thinking or deciding things for myself!

Sometimes it make's you think.... who are the feal fasceists?... (liberals)

Over all this book is a master-piece in the litrarary sub-genray "Philasiphy"... It really make's you think...

God, you're evoking something in me. At a young age I also took a dim view of liberals, socialists, radical thinkers, and feminists. Posts like yours make me predict the days until society has finally reached "inertia." The "inertial state" is really attributed to three states which control all worldly production. These three states go to war just for the hell of it, sort of like an "ammo dump," it helps with overproduction, and various subversive literature. I read the Catcher in the Rye years ago, and I have deduced that the reason for the book's ban in schools is because it is subversive, it is abstract, it is everything that the antithesis of the moralist holds in contempt. If you have not deduced that the aforesaid "superstates" are taken from Blair's 1984, then you are slowed, sir. 1984 is another book that has had a profound effect on me. However, I ask this: why is 1984 allowed to be read in schools while the Catcher in the Rye is banned but is just as subversive or supposedly subversive? They're rounding children up for slaughter, that's why. Consequently, I have become what I so disdained at a young age: a subversive yet conformal liberal. It doesn't make any sense.

Well, to be honest, I wasn't so sure of myself, but I've grown to appreciate your ways.

At first, I almost thought you were gonna be one of them pseudo-intellectual types that come along and are all "Hey guys, I'm kind of new to this music forum thing but I just wanted to recommend this obscure band I discovered. They're called RadioHead. I herd that they have something called "timer signatures". Sometimes there music goes "bzfdssh,,,.. wssssh... aaa" and it seems really deep!!! I used to think Coldplay were the bomb but now Coldplay don't seem so great to me anymore. It's so great to expand your horizons and listen to all kinds of wierd obscure music."

..But hey, it turns out you're actually pretty decent.

I would hardly say so, but that assertion is flattering nonetheless.

I just take pride in not forcing my opinions onto others. And, as you have expressed, I am certainly not an intellectual.

By "decent", I mean you're not insufferable which is good enough for me.

Seriously, I just intentionally spew a bunch of random crap, I am completely illogical, and I insult everyone's preferences while asserting that my tastes are superior.

I'm rather tolerable with people and I can take it into the context you're not quite the greatest person around (who is?), but there's really worse. Oh, and you don't have soul cancer unlike most people here--that's always good.

"Soul cancer?" I have never heard such a phrase. Pragmatically, I would assert that I am fairly "soulless" in that I am uncultured, characterless, and callous.
