The Upanishads expound on the principles laid down in the Vedas. The Bhagavad Gita is a small albeit important part of a far larger work, Mahabharata. It is basically a conversation between Arjuna, a heroic figure in the Mahabharata and his charioteer, Krishna (an incarnation of the god Vishnu). Translated works of the Gita are widely available but I would suggest avoiding any of the ISKCON versions (they tend to make a personality cult out of Krishna which was never the intention) and go for an older one. I forget which one I have, I need to look it up.

The Chasm
Gorguts - across 4 albums
Manilla Road (pretty much everything across a 3 decade existence is gold)
Mortem from Peru - 4 releases so far, each one better than the one before.

Several (Immolation, Slayer, Bathory, King Diamond with Fate and solo in the 80s... spring immediately to mind) have released 4/5/6 good/great albums and then sort of lost the edge..

Rudra - Everything is available from the band. http://www.rudraonline.org/merch.html
If you're buying a greater number of CDs they will certainly reduce costs.

Averse Sefira - Homecoming's March. Elegy Records. http://www.elegyrecords.org/web/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2&products_id=36&zenid=20c6b6adcda9327fffa7334572d0d5c5

Avzhia - In My Domains. I got it from Sleaszy Rider in Greece. Free shipping worldwide, trustworthy. Maybe it is still available. http://www.sleaszyrider.com/html/store.htm

I think what you're saying comes to this: no balance. I agree. When the balance tips over too far on any side, while the majority will not realise anything and simply "go with it", there will be those who wish to restore it. Translated to our current world scenario (I can't remember any time before the last couple of hundred years, and esp. the last few decades, when lawbreakers and dipshits, however talented or not, were cool - unless they were striving for a true cause) - there has been so much cool-factor shovelled by advertisers and marketers and rock stars into aspects of breaking the (usually unwritten) law or my favourite: be and express yourself (little 0 watt humans with little 0 watt expression), that it has become, as you said, stale and commonplace and ideas like honour are considered antiquated or even silly. The basis of everyday life is selling your soul. So, the balance needs to be righted is what it all comes to. I can understand the yearning for a more sincere time, I feel it.

Well, people push and pull, things come and go - when the balance is completely lost: game over, restart?

Oh, and I enjoy fantasy a great deal too.

Someone who was once far better - read the uploader's description.


He is using a self-designed double necked, ten-string violin. Sounds absolutely beautiful.

"The darkness question" has been around from the earliest days of man. It has always been granted its place in mind of man. eg. even in the Bhagavad Gita/Mahabharata. There is little that is "pure" in the sense that people here are speaking of. Asuras (demons) gain boons through the virtue of their meditations and the purest are touched with the grime of the darkness of the soul. There have always been men who wished for a world of complete innocence and from them are born the tales of times long past when the world was such, but even if we take it that the distant past was a better time for these things, the curve always only tends towards zero, it never reaches it. 50s comic book mentality IS pure fantasy.

edit: from the Mahabharata to Nunslaughter :) : Those who are afraid of the dark shall never see the light. :)

Apart from compilations, re-releases and some mentioned already:

Deceased - Surreal Overdose
Rudra - Brahmavidya: Immortal I
Manilla Road - Playground of the Damned
Shub Niggurath - A Deadly Call from the Stars

Am not too sure about the Deceased effort, considering the strength of their older albums, but the rest are keepers.

Only a bear? Not a whale then.

I see no wrong in empathy or compassion where required, which is not necessarily in every instance.

About Gandhi and whoever said he had no spirit: he had enough spirit to stick to his convictions, whether you personally agree with them or not, resist forces far beyond our knowledge for decades longer than you or I have lived on this benighted planet and bring about enormous, continent or even world-wide change through force of personal will alone. So, easy on the bullshit, however much you may disagree.

I wish it was this way, but I believe saying "I support" means that he supports it.

Support what exactly? It can be seen more than one way. That the killing is supported for the sake of the killing or that the support is for the effect of it, namely: "they rupture the pleasant illusions of everyday life for modern people, they create a fissure in a constructed/moralised reality".

Several hundred animal species, observed and documented, engage in sodomy. Whether that has anything to do with Desmond Morris is not sure.
