anybody out there know what Sunn-Goatse is referring to when he refers to the "myths" of metal?
It's like the myths of anything, the functioning narrative that drives the understanding of something's existence. Not myths as in "archaic falsehoods." I'm not convinced that the "myths of metal" are dead as a whole; I think many have been cast aside and effort needs to be redoubled to keep the important ones alive. Metal might be seen as the body of myth in itself; the axioms derived from them and which reinfoce them are probably mostly what have been neglected.
One possiblity might be Unpopular defiance is better than popular servitude
Conversely, there is nothing in metal to the effect that All men are created equal.
