Glorious Times: Old-School DM Book in the Works

Glorious Times: Old-School DM Book in the Works
October 23, 2009, 03:41:32 AM
I found this on deathmetal.org; everybody here should be reading it for just such gems (and they should have an RSS feed to make it easier).

Quote
The idea for this book came over through an off the cuff statement made in an email. Little did we know those few words would transform into a monster spanning 2 1/2 decades. All of the photos in this book come from the years 1984-1991 and none have been made available to the public at large - the majority of which have never been seen before. They stem from the combined private collections of both authors and the overwhelmingly generous contributions of several of the pioneering spirits whose recollections make the mortar with which this pictorial sentiment becomes the foundation. These two essential elements are what is used to build this photographic testament to our GLORIOUS TIMES. The book is brought to you by those who LIVED in the glory days, with heart felt recounts by those individuals whose efforts together CREATED what is known as extreme music today, and the photographic evidence to back it up.

The scene weíre showing in our book was all new and unharmed by the interactions with major labels.

Quote
I don't think that the old scene was anywhere near as concerned about recording contracts or 'fame' - but it is what I have noticed the younger crowd are preoccupied with for the most part. Alot of them have a rude awakening in store because you can bust your asses for decades and never get any more recognition than you did as a demo band.

Quote
Times are much much different now. A new band can start, record one song and thanks to things like myspace, facebook, youtube and various other sites on the web, they can have their music heard Ďround the world on the same day they create it.  Back in the 1980ís if you wanted to hear some new underground band you had to trade tapes for it or send cash through the mail and then wait weeks to get it. If you really wanted to stay on top of the scene back then you had to make sure you had correspondence with people from all over the world.. I was corresponding with Alan in Australia, Lars of Carbonized from Sweden, people in Greece, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the UK, Canada, Brazil, Chile, France, Belgium... I was spending a small fortune on postage, just to keep up on things.  Now, thatís simply not necessary, you can find just about anything you want on the internet with just a little bit of looking, and many times you can just download their music, sadly many times itís crapped down to (e)mp(ty)3, but itís all out there to check out.  Iím old school so I would advise newbies to do things the same way that we did, seek out new bands then not only buy their demo tapes/cds, but also write to them, and to do the same thing with Ďzines (online or printed)..get in touch with the editors and establish friendships. Alan and I did that 20 years ago, and here we are now in contact again and regaining contacting with old friends and picking up those friendships all over.

Quote
The bottom line is that all of these bands were bringing something really unique to the table, and the equation that still astounds me today is the sheer youth of the musicians, and how bloody good they were. Innovative and adventurous, really pushing the envelope and at the same time there was this DNA stamp all over their music that was impossible to confuse with anyone else. There was not so much a genre as there were bands for the most part, even though we still got trapped in labelling bands for reference which is like an ugly necessity sometimes, especially regarding the press, and by that I mean everything including the home made photocopied 'zines.

Quote
I would gather that there was a definite amount of influence from either scene on the other - without a doubt, that's great if it's utilized well of course and could only help further evolutionary mutations spring forth.

Same with the death bands - but I think the presence of the cash machine sort of bungled the biological natural selection for the black metal bands and the death bands too for a while and there was alot of mutation dying off that would have survived if left alone by the influence of the dollar. I think the black metal phenomenon was accepted alot faster by the corporate multinationals than anything previously, although it was spat on by the same vampires until they realized how to profit from it.
 
Each new evolution sort of overshadowed the previous for a while as far as popularity, but then again the multinationals are part of why that's the case - not so much that the music was actually being accepted by fans I think. People might not have been devouring new music all the time in the 20+ years after the glorious times, but they dam sure had a staple diet of classics that I am certain got frequent play all the way through.
