BitTorrent Community Misses aXXo

BitTorrent Community Misses aXXo

A year ago the BitTorrent community was shaken when the popular DVD-ripper nicknamed aXXo stopped sharing his high-quality torrents with millions of his followers. The user went suddenly silent at the peak of glory. During last year thousands of his followers have begged for his return, and now they are joined by Norwegian musician dedicating a track to the ripper on his album.


The name aXXo is probably familiar to those who have been into BitTorrent networks for over a year now. Since 2005, the nickname of aXXo has been attached to thousands of torrents linking to pirated films. Within the following four years the user has achieved cult status, becoming for many synonymous with quality. In result, aXXo has attracted the attention of the mainstream press, scammers, and even documentary makers.

Suddenly, for unknown reasons, the user uploaded his last torrent file to the usual place in spring 2009, thus leaving thousands of his followers behind. Now it was revealed that one of his followers was a Norwegian musician Binarpilot, producing electro. In his latest album, the artist has dedicated one of the tracks to mourn absence of aXXo. This track, as well as the entire album, in true aXXo spirit, is available for downloading for free – Binarpilot has adopted this business model since he started creating music. He is doing good, making money through bookings, donations, and merchandise.

Apart from publicly voicing his appreciation for piracy, the musician has been very vocal about the impact piracy has on the music industry. He clarifies that it isn’t hurting the artists, but only hurting the music industry, which is its real beauty. It doesn’t matter what industry says to the public – it’s piracy that is saving music by bringing a corrupt and red tape down to its knees.

The musician cares little about unauthorized downloads, because he doesn’t charge for his works. Instead, he makes good money via donations and advertisement revenue thanks to the web. He admits that he never would have seen this money if it wasn’t for all those “pirates” downloading his works.

The most important fact for Binarpilot is that he can spend his money with a clear conscience, realizing that he never sacrificed his artistic integrity to any of the corporate formula like those of record labels.

hoddi1 avataraXXo is still around yes but since he went quiet many more very good encoders have stepped up to fill the void.
Thanks to all including aXXo...

Devek avatarfor everyone not missing aXXo there is no point in you posting that, there are some of us here who do miss him. let us mourn his loss without you. We all miss you aXXo!! Thank you for all you have shared with us!!

jonboy74 avatarvery well said hoddi1 axxo is one of the first encoders that i used and i hold him in high regard he is missed but at the same time there are some fantastic torrent creators coming through like safcuk and hufc to name but two i think if anything axxos legacy is there for us all to aspire to. wherever you are axxo thankyou very much you are missed but also thankyou for making encoders do better work to be as good as you

marblezilla avatarI've downloaded more axxo films than I can recall. I rem doing a excel chart on A & V specs for axxo named releases just to help me spot fakes. Saying you don't miss someone because so many more are striving to meet quality levels encoding pioneers helped to create seems to be worded a tad severe.

tonymengela avatarAXXO was great he always had what his quality was stated. He did allot to motivate people to copy him and then take up his mantel and leave gracefully. I do miss seeing the AXXO tag as it was always quality assured. But he did a better thing for leaving, now we have many more trying to out do him. Bravo for AXXO and bravo for Binarpilot.

greenbud1969 avatarFor those of you that are new to the bittorrent world aXXo last upload/torrent was Punisher-War Zone 2008 posted on Tuesday March 10, 2009. Any rips showing up after that date are fakes or just uploaders trying to use his name to get more people to download from them. BE AWARE OF BOGUS SITES AND LAMERS. DOWNLOAD YOUR aXXo FILES FROM aXXo ACCOUNTS. REMEMBER TO VISIT http://www.darksiderg.com and last active on darksiderg.com was Sunday July 19, 2009. Not a word since. aXXo R.I.P. We miss you buddy. Someday maybe you will come back. peace

messiahx4ever avatarhe was the one who set the standards of what rips should be all about, and did it with style, I have many of his works and continue to enjoy them. I sorely miss his work, always imitated but never mastered. Thanks again dude!!!

oOBLazerOo avatarI say yeah you gotta miss aXXo he did do quality DVDrips, at the same time I agree with the few that mentioned the other pioneers in the scene such as maVen and centropy who produced some of the best TS of all time.

brods73 avataraxxo did relese his stuff at mininiva first and they went legit!! think he's still around under another name becouse of ppl ripping off his name..anyway top uploader and the name is missed r.i.p axxo

posted by ET lover (2010-10-21 23:10:17)
SyKoTiK avataraXXo (the individual person) doesn't post any longer under that name, but he does still post under a different name. The name "aXXo" is now the name of a GROUP of people carrying on the legacy since it's a trusted name in the ripping/encoding world.

evilmother avatarbad thing was a scaming web sight and a want to be startd giveing him a bad rep he was then and still is the best he did what he did for the real reson tru hackers and so calld pirats do for the freedon and giveing it for free NOT the fame or money

No avataraXXo aint a guy lol they are a group

No avatarIn a purported interview of a person claiming to be aXXo, he describes himself as a single individual who has been ripping DVDs since he was a teenager.[6] It has been rumored that the MPAA is waiting for aXXo to reach the age of 18 to more effectively prosecute him than if he were a minor hmmmmmmmmmm

posted by (2010-10-23 01:28:54)
MarcusVenture avataraXXo did the right thing. You get in & then get out or you end up maybe getting in trouble instead of becoming a legend. I am currently trying to replace all my old rips but I do fondly remember aXXo torrents!

posted by Blocked (2010-10-26 02:21:15)
knowing avataraXXo was the greatest. dvd rips almost every day. great quality back then also. yes, there are better rippers out there now. pretty much all those who rip BR'S. but aXXo is a legend for sharing. when he was around his movies were my copy of choice for every movie he shared. thank you very much aXXo. the quality of your movies were ahead of their time and the consistency is still second to none.
