Metal / Re: Metal between randomness and redundancy

art is not computation. art is not  message, language etc. It's true meaning is the spiritual revelation...or, in our relativistic times, what a group or other considers spiritual revelation. Everything else are means: the language, the "message" etc If you get lost in language/form you re doomed, lost on the path. So mastering the means of art is essential. Supposing you transgressed relativism. And mastering the means is knowing witch part fits where,  on what basis, to what end. there's no place for being "cryptic" (for it stands for needing to much to say something) or simplistic (for it stands for not having all "the words" with you)

Another album from 2011 that stuck with me, and wasn't mentioned here, was Shub Niggurath's A Deadly Call from the Stars

Decrepitaph - Profane Doctrines Unburied is not bad at all

How's it do on the five year test?

I think I'll be listening to the new Cianide in five years. Not quite as frequently as their peak, Descent Into Hell, but nonetheless frequently.

Then again, there's some music I respect that I don't ever seem to listen to. Absu past the first album. Gorguts past the second. Metallica after the second. And so on. I don't understand it.

I try to stay away from what i receive as very perishable, this Decrepitaph however attracted me more than the Cianide album.

Today Is the Day on DLA? ... i can't wait really... very curious about this...the band is practically ignored by metal archives and by the vast majority of  the metal community (as being alternative, or something), as far as i know...

@Umbrage:

 - religion is not shaped by politics, unless it's invented by politicians, but has to endure being mutilated in order for the political will to mishape society (the pope, catholicism, european civilisation, atheism, socialism etc). No "official religion" is at ease with it's original principles, except when its original principles are from the start political will.
- liberalism IS the child of ex catholics went atheistic, not the other way around. Same thing with socialism. I think what you observe as being a struggle for survival is in fact lobby for orthodoxy for example has indeed the status of an official institution, fact that proves it's loss of authority. (it is under legislation)So the institution is shaped by politics, but not the religion in itself, in it's essential ideas etc
- christian terrorism from wiki is explained as "....who claim Christian motivations ... " but what i was reffering was the simple christian believer becoming terrorist in the eyes of authority just for being a christian not for going berzerk in public places etc I was reffering to this notion as a legal coresspondent for muslim terrorists , fundamentalist that are usualy seen in any towel-head (or so i'm told)

I was watching this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBAmPxSI8bo

...and thought to propose to you here at Anus forum an imaginary picture out from wich to conclude some realistic effects and conclusions. If of course you shall bare to participate.

Let's say that 10 years from now (max) christians shall become indeed and in open as unwanted and hunted as are muslims (considered so by the officials and those going with the flow of popular opinions) now. I mean legislation and all developed further against christianity. Not simply interdicting crosses and all by the rules of "multiculturalism" and "freedom of self experession" etc I mean let's imagine that is not long untill open official action will be taken against christians as enemies of the state and social order. Maybe is hard to imagine that cause i know metal world has deep antichristian roots and history, although recently  the underground is trying to move past that ('90 to now) and to fantasize about mainstreaming this would be "crazy"....  but let me remind you that the legislation and the actual  trend (and this is not news) is anti-christian, as christianity is seen as radical as the muslims, and that is true, if we refer to the real orthodox christianity, that's even against good ol' catholicism, not to mention all modernity , liberalism, multiculturalism etc All that's missing is open "christian terrorist" acts for authority to take stand.

So, what if the christian becomes same thing as the muslim? Seen as the"bad guy" the "offender of democracy" the "enemy of order" etc
What would underground metal be then when partially at least it would seam as the precursor of what then shall be an mainstream trend? (hope my english is good enough)

(no need for arguments like: that would never happen because...let's say it shall, thats the game)

Would Anus became the forefather of a mainstream moment? Would Anus say "i told you so"? Would that be relevant for the current state of affairs (ideology) ? Are there reasons to believe that this fiction has a maybe small possibility ?

Has anyone listen to the Mystérion - Sacral Chamber 2010 EP ? i find it quite inspired and well written while not mind blowing the melodies and the moods flow smoothly in a depressive/romantic/solemn manner... also the ambient interludes fit there very well.
