What many of you don't seem to realize, is that it is the context of a particular movement which cements its sincerity and importance. Too many of you are unwilling to accept the bleak truth and abandon metal; too craven to explore the unknown for something else. Consequently, we have people making idiots of themselves suggesting things like the creation of 'terror metal'. I think that post shows that some of you have hit rock-bottom.
Burzum, Darkthrone, Ildjarn etc. were created in a particular socio-cultural context: Churches were being burned, there was an escalating sense of purpose. Things like these are created rarely, and that is what makes them beautiful (Btw, I say this not in a teleological sense). The thing which annoys me most about metalheads is the stubborn refusal to acknowledge what empirical evidence screams in the form of Summoning's Stronghold and all other contemporary metal: METAL IS DEAD.
(As regards Summoning, there is a blatant tendency amongst contemporary efforts to cloak a latent heavy-metal element in the tried-and-tested aesthetic of the forefathers. When I first heard Summoning's vocalist repeatedly screeching the chorus "Take a ride, why not?, on your rotting horse on the deadly ground" I was in a caught in a paradox of laughter and embarrasment)
Those amongst you attempting to fabricate the next generation of metal ('What's next and who's doin' it?)- Your quest is ludicrous. No amount of deliberation will negate the fact that metal reached its saturation point long ago, that since the commercialization and popularization of the internet, it is increasingly futile to counter the indoctrination of the idiot-masses with music that isn't goal-orientated toward entertainment, that, in essence, the world is going to shit and metal isn't the answer. This is the context against which we attempt to forge another generation, and it clearly isn't conducive. The brief, conflagrant epoch of the early '90s which blessed us with Burzum and company should be infinitely appreciated, because it was the culmination of external factors that don't currently exist. (And that is not to deny the world's degeneration, but rather to say that things have changed such that a movement in a nature similar to that is both unnecessary and improbable, at least as regards its manifestation in the metal persuasion)
Technicality is discussed often us as well. I've heard such gems as (paraphrasing) grindcore never quite reached its full potential and can manifest the aesthetic of the new style of metal. In a word, ludicrous. A fool will interpret this as a call for inertia and complacency- Rather, I'm advocating that those with a mind toward pragmatic idealism will focus on accomplishing something other than fuelling their energies into hopeless endeavors.
My final point, is to consider yourselves as a cultural product, and integral to this is your race. You are born in a genetic context and it is inseperable to your existence. As an Indian, I might appreciate metal, but I'll never attempt to re-create it, for quite simply, there isn't a point; There are other things which need my attention. It was done (In Norway better than elsewhere), and now there are other paths cloaked in virginity. You can appreciate greatness, regardless of where it comes from and regardless of your race- But you're not an individual jESUS that the genre needs. Appreciate the paragons and strive elsewhere. A glance about determines that the world could use you elsewhere.
