Michael IX Williams is the frontman for the influential band EYEHATEGOD. He is also an accomplished poet, his book Cancer as a Social Activity is equal parts Baudelaire and Harmony Korine. Michael took time from his hectic life to take the Rorschach Test for Blot Und Eisen.

Two Grim Reapers fighting mid-flight over a skinned and headless goat carcass.

Two decadent, tattered robe wearing, cigarette smoking acrocephalics playing patty-cake.

Highly electro-magnified dust mite in a cheap motel.

Bug's eye view of a cowboy with a Stegosaurus tail at a shootout.

Mutant Moth-man without any proper prophecy to speak of.

Exploding sepulchre with cross monument at top.

Beard of a sideshow pharmacist on display in East Cambodia.

Battered insect helmet made of chrome, thread, and wire mesh.

The Hideous Sun Demon crossbred with the original She-Creature.

Prehistoric sawfish crushed after suicidal dive off of 18th floor high rise, then ran over by an eighteen wheeler.

John Haughm is the guitarist/singer/mastermind behind the band Agalloch. John took some time out from writing the next Agalloch album and wandering through the woods in order to take the Rorschach test for Blot Und Eisen. Here are his replies:

A wild boar with four eyes and an attitude.

A very lonely abominable snow creature, crooning into the night.

Two people fighting over a head.

An animal skin rug

A bird...as seen from another bird.

The sky...as seen from inside a shallow grave.

Two siamese twin elephant embryos trying to escape each other

A monk with a musk ox skull on his chest

A goat head backpack

A sort of intergalactic crab lord.


Digestor is the singer/guitarist of cult Creepsylvanian Gore-obsessed thrashers, Ghoul. He so graciously took time from digesting to take the Rorschach test. Here' are his replies:

Ink blot

Blot of ink

Inky smear

Drops of ink pressed between the folded halves of a piece of paper

Embarrassing stain

Hard to clean mess

Baby diaper

Dirty tablecloth

Leaky oil pan

This one looks like me and my mother having violent sex while my dad watches and jerks off


Do I really need to introduce Fenriz, one of the founding members of the most influential Black Metal band of all time? Anyways, Fenriz was gracious enough to take time out from hiking and hanging out in Haiger to take the Rorschach test for Blot Und Eisen. Here's his replies:

a fox, but not just any fox; the fox that's on the norwegian rolling tobacco pouch "EVENTYRBLANDING" (maybe one can google it)

GROTTO (cave) after 1 milisec. a STUPID painting of a sad demon (2 sec), a butterfly (6 sec), 2 men arguing (after 20 sec, i didn't look this long on the others)

a crab (the sea creature)

a giant (Goliath?)

a nerdy looking bird

Some sort of weapon/security tower. the bottom half didn't give me any instant association directly, it just backed up the ominous tower. so no direct association other than it was under ground/in the soil/the soil itself

germany (twisted map of)

alien skeleton (1 sec). the bit that made me think of a skeleton then looked like a uterus after like 4 seconds.

War machine, wasn't immediate. the very top structure is much like Away's (VOIVOD) early structures, or the top of our very own logo (darkthrone)

a sign of arms, like what you's see on a mideaval shield. then i see a large lying animal fur (like in front of the fire place stylee) in the middle, and gargoyle-like dragons at each side.


Scott Kelly is best known for being the one of the founding members of Neurosis as well as being a member of Blood & Time and most recently, Shrinebuilder.

sad face


cowboy/keep on trucking





Gary Oldman as Dracula with an antennae
