Metal / Re: METALLICA to release Guitar Hero album
« on: July 16, 2008, 07:45:21 AM »
*sigh*  I really do hate all the kids that play guitar hero without first having played real guitar.

In light of that i reckon "Post Metal", or better yet "post black metal" would work.[...] Only problem would be keeping people from giving retarded bands this label as well, as is the main problem with all of these labels.

On the Encyclopedia Metallum the new Mayhem is classified as "Black Metal / Post-Black Metal"... That idea is shot.

I would also suggest Philip Glass http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/index.php/topic,2933.0.html... either Heros or Symphony number 2

I can probably help with audiofile also, if you need.

He sure didn't.  I think he said that at the beginning of his term in prison though.  He has become a lot more open about things as the years have passed.

We might be able to seperate the "ark", but the problem still lies in the kids who decide to make a band and produce music that copies or sounds like the good bands.  Sadly in socitey today we cannot restrict those bands from making their own music.

Varg once said that not all people are destined to make music.  If a band does not bring something good or different to the genre, then we should discard it.  The same goes with making the music.  If one just becomes a cliche copycat, then they should stick to listening to the music, not making it.  Sadly most people do not follow this philosophy.

Mmm the Slayer and Mayhem are looking quite good right now.  Next time I go to Chicago I might have to check it out.

Metal / Re: Mortiis
« on: May 26, 2008, 05:57:26 PM »
I do not listen to Mortiis much, but when I do, I enjoy it (era 1).   I find the music good for having a discussion about philosophy or other such things, or for thinking about more imaginitive ideas.  My favorite album has to be Fodt til a herske.

Interzone / Re: Music to fall asleep to/how it affects your dr
« on: May 25, 2008, 02:51:51 PM »
Usually when I listen to music it doesn't affect my dreams, but my imagination starts to wander while I am in a waking state.  It seems that whenever I am falling asleep all music tends to do is to put me into the stage right before sleep.  Burzum usually takes me to an almost mystical forest, whereas Mortiis usually takes me to towers, castles, or ruins thereof.  Limbonic Art usually takes me to the stars or below the earth.  It all matters what I am listening to.

The problem about catchiness is it gets to our imagination, making us think that we actually like the music for a split second before we catch ourselves.

Interzone / Re: Metal music listeners more intelligent?
« on: May 16, 2008, 03:16:48 PM »
I think it depends on the type of metal one listens to.

I have found that people who listen to mainstream bands because they find it "cool" or "in style" have the intelligence of a doorknob.  

Some of the people who listen to metal look for the bands they enjoy for themselves, and I think that could account for those "intelligent" ones.  Those that don't really have care for the mainstream crap put out today might actually have the capability to think for themselves, which makes them different, thus making them intelligent in the eyes of modern society.

Interzone / Re: Moshing
« on: May 08, 2008, 01:16:10 PM »
I find moshing quite revolting.  The only people I speak to who find moshing fun are posers.  It is a lousy destraction from what people go to concerts to do - listen to bands.
