Metal / Re: Slayer banned in India

Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic. But, again, christian church never really accepted any criticism.

As for "The Da Vinci Code" -- It's completely beyond my understanding how people, could consider it something more then a work of fiction.

BTW, theoreticaly, bible can also be banned, because it claims that there is only one God (an insult toward those of polytheistic beliefs), and of course, the reason Xaphan190 mentioned.

Just don't listen it then.

Well, I can try.

Metal / Re: Towards Hessian Culture

In reply to the original post: Agreed.

In reply to Lupus' post:
Various Judeo-Christian boards of directors and chairmen of entertainment industries, none of whom even listen to metal, dominate what passes for Hessian culture.

If no one would want to listen those bands, they wouldn't be there. Those in control of the entertaiment industries merely sell what majority of people are willing to buy.

Metal / Re: What does Black Metal mean to u?
« on: August 04, 2006, 12:31:48 PM »
To me, black metal is about:
1. Resistance. Non-conformity with the crowd.
2. Going back to the old ways, those inspired by nature, and not build upon fears.
3. Becoming something better, as in Nietzsche's ‹bermensch.
4. Music as art, and not as a product for the masses.

Drawbridge is a one-man bedroom Black Metal project dedicated to making extremely shitty music.

C'mon, atleast he's honest.


Metal / Re: Article about Metal in UK newspaper
« on: July 03, 2006, 11:39:01 AM »
people seem to think that i slaughter goats on a regular basis cos i like death metal, and they haven't even heard of black metal.

Atleast they didn't try to claim that Slipknot are black metal.

The authors should have gotten more information on metal before writing the article. But nevertheless, it's very nice to see that authors tried to banish the stereotypes.

It has got a very bad image attached to it and there is a stereotype of a metal fan, but you'll find they are some of the most normal and sane people you'll come across.

Those words are worth the whole article.

Metal / Re: Satanism and metal
« on: June 17, 2006, 08:48:40 AM »
There have been many threads on the subject resently and i have seen that many disaprove of satanism as he was a christian creation. Many say that in metal it is used as a metaphor, but it is not clear to me how this is done. Any one have any thoughts on this.

As far as I know, Satan symbolises rebellion, refusal to serve and freedom.
"Tis better to reign in Hell than serve in Heav'n." - Milton, Paradise Lost

And the above quote is an excellent example of it.

And as most of today's society and civilization is based on values of Christianity, it means rejection of it, and going back to the roots.

Metal / Re: Metalheads as multiculture

Well, System of a Down IS metal. Faggot metal, that is.

But, speaking seriously, everything that doesn't fit in the borders of what is considered "normal" by majority of society, is prone to being discriminated.

Petitioning radio stations is an idea, but it's not highly likely to that it'll have the desired effect.
The term 'metal' is exploited, used as an advertising slogan, due to the image that it conjures in the mind of majority.
As long as big money can be made of it, there's barely anything that can stop record companies and radiostations from exploiting the term.
Perhaps some new trend will remedy the situation.

Interzone / Re: Poor poetry in metal
« on: June 17, 2006, 07:35:21 AM »
"In Analyzing I learn To Consume The Sphere Of Immense Power And To Become Immortal Darkness Hate and Winter Rules the Earth when I Return War Between Races A Goal Is Reached Chaos, Hate"

Pretty meaningless and pathetic lyrics. Lyrics in blackmetal should embody the true Nihilistic beauty of death and life - the never ending circle of chaos.

"My Journey To The Stars" surely isn't best of Burzum's songs, but it doesn't make the lyrics meaningless.

By far not always lyrics are straightfoward -- sometimes you just have to think about it for a while to understand them.

Besides, there's such thing as metaphors. And at times, they can be pretty hard to depicher.
Get the idea?

(But on the other hand... It may be so that the song is actually meaningless, and Mr.Vikernes is going to laugh his ass off at people figuring out the meaning.)

But to actually write poetry like that would require extended study/practice which would go beyond the attention span of most people.

Not that much studying reqired to write good poetry. It mostly requires talent and practice.

The lyrical content usually isn't the main focus in the music, which is 98% of the time for good reason. Most bands focus more on the music and just use the words as a vehicle for the instrument of the voice.

Ausgebombt certanly has a point. But I'd also add that lyrics still help to define the message of the song.

IMO, to which extent lyrics should use classical poetic forms also depends on the music itself, and on the message it carries.

Since when were metal heads ever activists? And what censorship is there thats getting in the way of metal artists. If metal heads want to stop enviromental devestation they could join an environmentalist group.

Think about it, this thread is retarded. A metalhead pollitical party???

IMO, simply being a dedicated metalhead can already be counted as sort of activism.

Metal / Re: How do you listen to music?
« on: May 31, 2006, 11:55:07 AM »
I can enjoy the music pretty much anywhere, considering I'm not doing something that requires much concentration.

But still, it's the most enjoyable in solitude, preferably in darkness.

Metal / Re: Where would metal go?
« on: May 14, 2006, 10:27:29 AM »
Classical music used to be modern in it's time... But now, it's in the past.

Personally I belive that metal should evelop on it's own, w/o any disregrad for other styles.
