NEW Podcast: Vintage Vinyl Vivisection

July 17th, 2018 Comments off

The Accusation Network brings you its latest podcast: Vintage Vinyl Vivisection.

Vintage Vinyl Vivisection (or, V3 for short) takes you under the skin and straight to the meat of classic heavy metal and hard rock albums. No out-of-touch hipster nonsense or irrelevant political banter here. Just straight talk on records we all know and (mostly) love, brought to you by those who know what they’re actually talking about. Genre-related tangents will also occur.

Joining us in studio for the inaugural episode is Mr. John Shaw (www.isatanist.com) as he and Matt talk about the third studio album from Def Leppard — Pyromania. Discussion includes album charting, the making of the album, replacing a guitar player, the cover art, and the three standout tracks, as well as Pyromania’s wide appeal and more. But, since it’s never just about the album, you’ll also gain insight on Matt’s fledgling video editing efforts, how metal gets you all the girls, who started the rise of pop metal, “doing it” songs, selling out, John’s Def Lep triangle theory, totally weird ‘80s music videos, and modern kids who need to not be boring. Show theme and additional music provided by Gyps Fulvus (www.gypsfulvus.net)

NEW Podcast: Strange Moments In Cultural History

November 13th, 2016 Comments off

smich-symbol

In early-2016, Purging Talon began production on The Accusation Party podcast, a series dedicated to putting to rest the often blatant cultural nonsense of such repressive thoughts and actions as third-wave feminism, Islam’s attempt at compatibility with the West, the bias selectivity of so-called hate speech, the war against personal eugenics, and still others. And while this podcast continues with its critical mission, there was certainly room for less serious content; an additional podcast series that takes a lighter and certainly more humorous look at our cultural past.

Strange Moments in Cultural History is the class you never took in high school. Grab a seat up front and turn off your brain as we fill your head with tales of oddballs, villains, outcasts, flops and other lesser-known events in this thing we call human existence. The debut episode is already available in the same podcast feed that carries The Accusation Party, and with more episodes to follow. Also, prepare for yet a third podcast series to surface from Purging Talon in the near future.

Purging Talon proudly presents its latest project: The Accusation Party. Serving as an audio podcast, The Accusation Party represents critical thought and analysis with a complete disregard for mainstream censure. It is total free speech — no trigger warnings, no political correctness, no privilege checking, no cultural inclusiveness. Nothing is sacred. None will be spared.

The inaugural episode focuses on the myth of human equality, with insight from Friedrich Nietzsche, Ragnar Redbeard, William A. Henry III, Milton Friedman, and others. Our guest will be Bill M., who will discuss equality in math and how it may or may not apply to human equality. Also, we look at Affirmative Action, blanket inclusion for children in sports, America’s founding fathers, group comparisons, and more. Opening quotation read by Kevin I. Slaughter.

Purging Talon Exec. Dir. in New Issue of Old Nick

August 4th, 2013 Comments off

2013-08-04-at-12.03Purging Talon Executive Director, Matt G. Paradise is featured in a pictorial entitled “Satanic Family Values” in the latest issue of Old Nick Magazine. Shot by the inimitable Paul Smalley (who is currently restoring his 19th century mansion in Iowa), the article showcases a few rakish gents of note in the infamous Church of Satan. From the publisher:

“Old Nick Magazine and its website were created for the forgotten man… the man who longs for the time of the genuine gentleman with a dark bent. The sophisticated gent who demonstrates manners and grace in every circumstance whether he’s at a formal affair or a ball game. We’re here for the man who loves women with curves, and who feel, smell and act like women. Welcome all you who are rogues, libertines and voluptuaries at heart”

The “Hell It’s Hot” summer issue (which also contains lots of pictures of naked women as well as articles on food, culture, art, sex and more) can be purchased either in print or digital form (there’s even an app for that!) at the issue’s MagCloud page. Back issues are available here. Official website for Old Nick is here (NSFW).

Mr. Slaughter Salutes Purging Talon

November 5th, 2009 Comments off

Kevin I. Slaughter is a vulgarian and elitist, half son of the South, half child of Mother England. He owns the 3rd largest private collection of vintage Super 8mm porn on the East Coast, plus an extensive library of adult paperbacks. He’s also been a staunch supporter of Purging Talon for most of its 16 years. On his blog, he recently writes

Matt Paradise had a pretty big impact on me through his Purging Talon Publishing. I thought I had a blog that contained my appreciation for his work, but I can’t find it…

I think I picked up a copy of Poo Poo Magazine first, and it was possibly through Atomic Books or Quimby’s, but I would always get the rest direct from then on, and when I was running the Den of Iniquity mail-order company I was putting in wholesale orders from him. I have a copy of deSade somewhere, and then later on his Superhighway to Hell.

I know my first article in another ‘zine was published in Not Like Most, and now I can’t remember if he’s published other articles or if it was just smaller notices. I’m trying to build a list of articles and interviews I’ve done over the years, but I just have “Not Like Most” listed with no further details yet. Either way, he’s supported my work over the years, big time, and I’ve done my best to reciprocate whenever possible.

Thanks, Kevin! Right back at ya.

Purging Talon Website Updates

March 28th, 2009 Comments off

— Superhighway To Hell has been deleted and all of its significant content has been moved to Diabologue. So, if you have any news, links, or anything else for either STH or Diabologue, you can contact us and let us know. Now, it all goes into one site instead of two. That’s progress!

— The old Satanism Today Video Version website is also deleted. Going to that page will now redirect you to the official Internet radio show’s site.

— Subterranean SINema’s site will still be kept online for the time being, but the Video Clips button now takes you to the Purging Talon YouTube page instead of an internal page with Quicktime video files. If you find any stray links to missing video files lurking in the bowels of this site, please let us know so we can likewise delete them.

— The Sinister Screen site won’t be leaving in the foreseeable future. Stop on by it and check out the reviews. It’s getting lonely.

As promised, I have sifted through the Purging Talon videos of the past and present, and once again made them available to the general public. If you have links on your websites to any of our videos previous to today, they might now be bad and you should re-link accordingly. Here’s a segment from “Under The Surface” — our DVD featurette on the subject of Subterranean SINema…
