Interzone / Re: Did all music die in the 1990s?

You speaking about RA Salvatore? I enjoyed his books about artemis entreri far more than any of the other stuff, but I don't know I just like Jarylaxle and Artemis' personas they are good foils for one another. Every society goes through stagnation, its not until they are pushed to "need" something, or someone feels its missing that the wheels of innovation turn. Or some just stumbles on a good idea (IE: Black Sabbath, I guarantee they had no idea what their sound would end up bringing, and probably weren't even trying to be that innovative with it, just jam out some tunes, do some drugs, and drink some beers)

Interzone / Re: LOL@modern depression treatment
« on: September 24, 2009, 03:20:03 PM »
I am with you their when i am feeling depressed: Guitar, writing a killer fucking riff can rip me out of a slump/depression as quickly as the depression sank on. Although once I went 3 months and felt every riff i wrote was horrible crap, but eventually I finally played the right string of notes that just brought a little smile to my face. Achievement is the greatest way to get out of depression i have to agree.

From what i heard independent label sales haven't gone down tremendously during the downloading phase people are going through, and the fact of the recession. I know I still manage to buy decent albums, or represses of old shit that i enjoy. I think people are finally realizing when they buy popsinger_001 they arent gunna be listening to that record more than 2 or 3 times and for 15 bucks thats ridiculous waste.

Metal / Re: Is Black Metal Superior to Death Metal?
« on: September 23, 2009, 12:57:22 AM »
not all death metal bands bang their heads on this modern bullshit. Atleast the band i am in right now we don't really give 2 flying fucks about the clean produced garbage that coming out with bassdrum typerwriters. We just write music that embodies the original ideals behind death metal and invokes the feeling of impending doom that all good death metal should give you, not this technical wave your wizards wand and arpeggio shit that the kids these days think is so fucking BR()()DUL. To say thats a bad part of death metal is to say the fucking symphonic black metal shit and all that late 90's wanna be black metal holds back the whole genre.

O and since we are talking about it death metal can portray whatever you want it to just like black metal can, its just a musical texture that gives the listener a generic idea of what the fuck the band is going to sound, you can incorporate the same ideals into a death metal record as a black metal record.

I don't know if i'd go so far as to say its their personal best or the best of the year. The year is not over yet and some big guns still have albums that are allegedly coming out yet. Although to be fair it is definetally a solid chunk of riffing.

I think this is a poor argument its like trying to decide between which of your children you like more. If both are talented and intelligent albeit have their dumb/childish moments (that would be the crap bands).

In the end its not the genres that fail by having bands that should never have released more than a handful of demos and a couple albums, it is the encouragement they receive from the wrong influences be it their fan base, their label, their family members, fellow band members. Every good band needs someone as an anchor to hold them back from going to much in some direction, or to write their music and tell them what to play.

I think it comes down to the fact a lot of good bands at one point stop thinking about what they can do to make their art sound better and just begin regurgitating the abortions of songs from their first handful of albums whether they be black metal or death metal.

Has anyone ever tried to submit a review for the TImeghoul demos? Those are some seriously quality shit IMO. If not id be willing to write up a semi decent review for them and submit it to the site.

That manufacturing point you brought up is what i was trying to point to myself. I've worked in machine shops since I was a sophomore in high school, and agree you can't just magic those machines together someone needs to fabricate them, build them from the floor up, program them to do what you want, troubleshoot when they make mistakes (which happens quite often), maintain them. If you have a large group of people who only kind of know what to do if it goes wrong or just read about it in a book (Contrary to what alot of people believe skilled labor is called SKILLED labor for a reason, it takes years or decades to develop the skills to do it right so to speak).

The eugenics idea sounds alot more rational/logical in the grand scheme of things.

Well yes we do have machines, but should we not keep a decent amount of laborers/skilled workers to forego some of that capital expending? There would be no real "class" for them. They would be slaves/untouchables. Also I do not know If you've ever worked in the construction industry, but you do need alot of actual physical laborers/tradesmen in that, and I think alot of the current construction workers (there will be exceptions) are probably in the 120 or less IQ points range.

So when we need roads built/construction done, why should we have the intelligent people doing unintelligent jobs? Wouldn't it be easier to use the lesser people like they were workhorses or what not? Logically it makes sense, if everyone is an artisan or doing some technical job, with very little skilled labor (something most highly intelligent people think is beneath them) you run into a serious issue.

Unless of course you want to live in cave/have no modern infrastructure of course, but that would be a step back not a step forward.

Because contrary to popular belief our modern manufacturing/construction industries might revolve around automation and less humans, we need to make some serious steps in robotics before you can completely replace human laborers.

The egyptians had slaves, the romans had slaves, americans have had slaves, the germans had slaves.

I also realize that if we massively curbed the population we would need less: Yet at the end of the day if your above the bar of 120 IQ chances are you already have done something that is not a mindless occupation, and would prefer not to lower oneself to manufacturing/construction as most "upper" class believe they are above physical labor.

Now when i say we enslave them it doesn't have to be permanent and they sure as hell do not have to like it, they just train the new lower class how to do their jobs well enough that they will be able to train others. Then we eradicate them.

Or perhaps there's part of the plan I am missing?

Seriously not trying to troll/refute what your saying, it just seems that there's a minor flaw in the logic of mass executing the people who are skilled/laborers (which i am not saying we should not do, if you look at the average construction worker the only thing alot of them add to society is a couple DUI's/Criminal charges and occasionally working somewhere.

Shouldn't we just enslave and work to death the people under 120 IQ points to create our new infrastructure? GIve them ankle bracelets, shock collars, and chemically castrate them to prevent further generations of children. Slowly weeding them out as they break their backs creating the society in which we will dwell?

Wow that sounded really National Socialistic, but seriously. Idiots can be trained to perform easy tasks like construction labor, and for the price of food and a shitty lodging we can get alot of dirt cheap labor out of them, as they die off we kill 2 birds with 1 stone. A decent infrastructure and we get rid of the less than 120 IQ.

And a question, Obviously the people with only 120 IQ are going to be the lowest class in this proposition? Then every 5 to 10 years or generation or whatever do we raise the IQ low limits up? To slowly breed out the lessers?

What type of criminals get eradicated? Felons, or anyone who has ever done anything remotely criminal? I would like to add Drunk Drivers to the list of Pedos/Rapists/Murderers: Most of them are just as dangerous, even if its not their "Fault" so to speak. Its a weakness.

Metal / Critiques on some compositions
« on: September 17, 2009, 05:04:14 PM »
I was wondering if I could get some objective opinions about some compositions of my band's? I only have some Tabs/Guitarpro files to show any interested parties, however we will be recording them soon. The musical style is somewhat like Immolation/Infester/(early) Atrocity/Gorguts however I would like to think its not just a rehash of old ideas.

If anyone would be interested in a critique that would be awesome.

Interzone / Re: Hi, everybody, also looking for some advice
« on: September 17, 2009, 03:10:10 PM »
Despite you not being into the "mainstream" as you put it, most of the bands you listed liking save Morbid Angel (this point being debateable) are the more mainstream of the metal genre.  I would take the time to look over the list of the bands presented here, and then find copies or download their best albums. Heres some starting points I would suggest.

Atrocity - Hallucinations
Gorguts - The Erosion of sanity
Death - Leprosy
Revenant - Prophecies of a Dying World
Ripping Corpse - Dreaming with the Dead

The last 3ish albums have a very thrash influenced pace. Hallucinations and EOS I put on because they are 2 of my favorite albums and meet your criteria pretty closely.

Everyone else's suggestions are pretty good too, Although Immolation - Shadows in the Light might be a better place to start, however HR is the most newbie friendly I would assume and should be pretty easy to get into for you.
