Metal / Re: Technical Black Metal?
« on: May 25, 2006, 04:08:51 AM »
I would say, that every black metal band is technical, in it's own way. Because it takes a certain technique to create the "style" of black metal, that all individual black metal bands create. Even the most minimalistic black metal band is technical, because minimalism is a technique, too, as something you, eventually, could add to your music. All musical traits/attributes, makes the music technical.

Metal / Re:  Metal Related Architecture

There is metal related literature, metal related movies, but is there any metal related architecture?

Maybe you're talking about nature, as it grants us some fantastic, unbelievable, romantic, ancient, ghastly structures, "un-craftable" to the hand of man...

Metal / Re: Satanism and metal
« on: May 25, 2006, 03:55:44 AM »
I'm not especially much into Satanism (so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, anyone), but as I see it, Christianity is a much older religion than Satanism, which I actually think officially originated from Christianity (probably because some (obscure?) people, opposing themselves to Christianity). Christianity presents to us, two alignments - good and evil. God being the good, and Satan being the evil (of course), and this probably seemed logical back then in those ancient and primitve times. The people, who were not like God , became Satanists (as they, obviously, were evil), and this is how it all started, I think. It, of course, evolved since then.
Because black metal is quite much based on ancient romanticism, I think Satanism (for most black metallers) is the metaphor for "evilness".
This rant is totally based on my own idea and theories on the subject, and it's probably incorrect, as I haven't researched it, or anything - this is what I found most logical. So any agreements/disagreements?
