I was re-reading Hessian.org
, which I'm supposed to promote to a field of morons who like Cannibal Corpse and Pantera, and it struck me that the case is hopeless.
Hessianism is not for every headbanger. It's a mockery of a negative term for Hessians, which can only successfully be used by those who violate the rule.
I don't know about the rest of you, but popular music is a wasteland for me. Hip-hop is obviously for morons, but I've come to see rock music as not much different, since it is composed in only three additional scales and is totally cyclic in how it is written. Verse, chorus, bridge, chorus. Soak, lather, rinse, repeat. Eat, defecate, reproduce, eat, die.
Metal is a breath of fresh air. It took the hopelessness of punk and made it into something with grandeur and beauty, and hope that we can change our stupid human ways into smarter human ways.
Not everyone is on board with that plan, because it would make most of them obsolete.
