Metal: confrontational, non-conformist, realist

Metal: confrontational, non-conformist, realist

I am continuously being asked how the metal scene has changed over the years. The truth is, very little has changed. Yes, the internet exists and computer technology dominates recording studios and art departments, but the psychological geography and the dynamics of the scene and industry are exactly the same as they were when I began with Hellhammer a long time ago, when CELTIC FROST self-terminated years later, and when I was part of the APOLLYON SUN project yet later again. A scene, a music, which at its birth was revolutionary and at least in part infused with the indispensably provocative byproducts of the youth upheavals of the late 1960s and early 1970s has become conservative to a distressing degree. By and large, it consists of perpetual copying and self-repetition. - Idiot Hairfarmer News (IHN)


He's describing society as a whole, but disguising his comments as being about metal. Society is in upheaval. Most people have no ideas. What rules us is our psychology and the quality of ourselves as people, not some dumb political-economic theory like a sandal rack in some dummy academic job would tell us. Heavy metal is like acid poured on the face of a lie... the opposite principle of conformity and lying to please others.

Tom G Warrior always understood metal better than the crowd, because he had high ideals and hopes. Everyone else is trying to make loud rock. Idiots!

What he's saying is this:

In most online communities, 90% of users are lurkers who never contribute, 9% of users contribute a little, and 1% of users account for almost all the action. (source)


Most metal people are just imitating others and trying to make their own version of it. There are a few geniuses, so listen to them. It's stupid to listen to metal as a genre though because most of it is crap. Just listen to the good acts. He's shitting on career metalheads who don't have the brains to realize most of the music they are hearing are ripoffs of five great bands, recycled and rearranged.

Tonight, with Trevor McDonald...



Lurkers do contribute. Sarcasm for instance in both its flat and pointy modes.

FLAT - subtle, quite, serious, insidious, fishing-troll -
1) "In my opinion Pink Frothy AIDS are enlightening."
2) "Jazz is just as worthwhile in its own way." and also pointed variations

POINTED - loud, blatent, obnoxious, frank, offensive-troll -
1) "lol urmetalgayz lolzone!!11"
2) "I DO NOT LIKE ENSLAVD I DONT KNOW WHY OTHER PPL DO ITS JUST MY OPINION BUT I I I YES TREVOR"



...In conclusion: Jewlol.

Or there's sarcasm that tries to make a point:

"how many more fucking ways can you think of saying the same thing? don't listen to shitty imitators only listen to bands that inovate, if you get bored of them make your own music"
In a state of permanent Abyss

Flat sarcastic trolling: Too absurd to be serious - question mark. African-Americans, Jews: Bad News!

"Interesting how we like to call true metal 'Dionysian' because it is about this world (as opposed to the Appolynian dream world), yet someone else flips the symbols on us and calls cock rock Dionysian because it is hedonistic."

and

"A close analysis of nu metal vs 'true' metal shows a common theme of dark aspects of life"

i laughed when i read that. major reality check for him there.

i realize the irony that i contributed nothing.

If only Adam Gadahn hadn't played air guitar while listening to the likes of Metallica, Motorhead or Motley Crue, he undoubtedly would not be the subject of a worldwide manhunt today
