Reminds me of:



...or maybe more recent incarnations by once-great Polish pagan vastlands bands we shall not mention by name too proximate to the mention of the godly Mercyful Fate ;)

Yea, most hackers I've met were mostly sympathetic towards heshers, punks and rivet heads - at least the older ones.

The mainstream absorption of the net basicly fucked over most undergrounds one way or another.

It reminds me of Doom 3. Videogames have been borrowing the metal aesthetic for decades.

Here's where I differ with Kaczynski: he says technology ruined humanity. I say that the dramatic ego, over time as civilization detaches from its roots in the cause-effect logic of nature, is what ruined humanity. The net didn't fuck over metal. Ever metal subgenre rises, gets flooded with imitators, and dies in exactly the same way hardcore punk did.

The hacker lifestyle isn't something that's clearly defined from an aesthetic standpoint, unless you really believe all the stereotypes you see in movies and on television. Hackers and crackers come from all walks of life.

Cult of the Dead Cow

These guys seem to love their Slayer.
