Good call, sometimes it seems bands can't get it together for an entire album, but if you put some of their odds and ends side by side you can still get the same effect e.g. Adramelech and also Imprecation (although not Finnish) is a good example. Maybe instead of choose your own adventure books, this is create your own album, the band gives you the material and you make the album and the final cuts. Also Amorphis - Privilege of Evil.
I think the idea behind CYFAWS/mutilation/destruction/I hope you die' is like Nietzsche's amor fati which basically means love your fate or embrace your fate. It means in the final analysis you cannot resist forever and you must ultimately submit to fate, so mutilate your resistance to this, destroy it, cut it, slash it and die. It's like if you've ever practiced on something for a long time, then the time comes for the official performance, so to speak, at that point it's show time and you submit to fate, trust your practice, and let the chips fall where they may.
Maybe I don't understand what is meant by a "protruding jaw," but it would seem to me that whites have larger jaws and chins than blacks. This kinda stuff is absolutely not my forte, but I would say over the past year or so I got kind of interested in skulls, less from any sort of scientific sense and more in an "aesthetic" sense. So all my observations are very very amateurish. I really don't read any sort of literature about this, but I just observe what I see in day to day life. Take a look at pro athletes, the white guys always have bigger chins/jaws than their black counterparts. Maybe the biggest difference I notice is not so much the jaw, but the chin. Blacks rarely have much of a chin. Take a look at that NFL player that fought in the Post 9/11 War, Pat Tillman. Have you ever seen anybody but a white guy with a chin and jaw like that?
For some reason I like Dawn of Possession more. I would observe that songs differentiate themselves from one another more on Here in After than on DoP, so I think it was more ambitious, but there is something about that consistency from song to song on DoP that allows me to concentrate and feel like I'm "in the middle of the sonic world" that is created. HiA kinda makes me feel like I'm getting beat up and at the mercy of Immolation! Although there is no shame to bow before Immolation! The last song in Here in After is also the best track between the two albums and a fine way to finish any metal album.
I think we need a place to put advertisements so it doesn't clutter legit discussion. Unless you are suggesting we get rid of commerce/advertisement altogether? That would be fine with me. If I have license to delete posts that amount to "this is my band/store/release/facebook/youtube" then I would be game.
I really like it. The song Old Morning's Dawn is especially fantastic and sure to rally the troops. Summoning are masters of expressing the inexpressible. In the cosmic battle of Good vs. Evil, Summoning seem to have taken up for the side of Good. When I was a teenager I never would have thought something like this could be considered metal.
What more could anyone have done for these 2 shitheads? If anything they are victims of being treated like victims. Paradoxically there is a certain aspect of being a man that despises an "easy life" and thrives in the wild under hardship. These guys were only victims in the sense that they were not in an environment that agreed with them. These guys belonged in the rugged hills of Chechnya living a sort of quasi-ascetic Muslim life. They would have been happier there. If I remember right Osama bin-Laden went to Oxford? It seems like these guys get a taste of actual civilization and hate how "soft" it is. I guarantee trying to sit down with these guys and talk about their psychological afflictions would only enrage them further.
