A thousand years before the age of materialism, yes maybe.


That means that some things you thought were error might have been unavoidable, and that the right person could make a change for the better.

Everyone here is so dour, so bitter, so willing to make excuses for why they must fail instead of taking the 3-5 simple steps to succeed. Do you hate yourselves?

New headline: Metalheads too busy bickering, making excuses to capitalize on favorable press.

Total social dysfunction. I don't see any of these people here "doing" anything for metal any time soon. In contrast to the people I know who do get things done, that's both pathetic and probably obvious. They have something going on. The rest of you... have keyboards and broadband, and that's about it.

Metal / Re: Grammar for metalheads
« on: March 20, 2007, 10:29:55 PM »
Do not be an internet drama-fag. Knowing grammar helps you speak more fluently. If nothing else, it gets you thinking about language. Why are you such a snippy, passive, Jewish person?

Metal / Grammar for metalheads
« on: March 20, 2007, 10:06:30 PM »
Their = belongs to them
There = a place
They're = they are

It's = it is
Its = belongs to it

Study this and you'll speak and write more fluently.

I still can't decide whether i prefer the debut or legionn though.


I can listen to Legion more than the debut, as well as Once Upon the Cross... but the debut is for special occasions.

Metal / Re: Ambient & Neoclassical
« on: March 20, 2007, 10:03:31 PM »
It's the spirit, you see it in any thinking art which harkens to the eternal.

Classical art can be rediscovered. What joins metal to ambient to neoclassical is the classical heritage in thought, which can be inherited through literature, art and/or philosophy.

Metal / Re: Global Metal

Too bad, because metal has always been nationalistic. Hold on to culture because it's epic, ignore modern society because it's mundaner than mundane. Only liberals are afraid of this.

As suggested elsewhere, we can edit it out. None of this is technologically difficult.

In popular music, many things are oversold. That's what happens when you have product as your motivation, not art.

Venom were clueless rockers who by being clumsy added "aesthetic" or sound but not any musical or artistic elements. Everything they did Motorhead did first.

Speaking as an oldtimer, Venom was most influential on Metallica... more than Slayer, who were obvious really into Oi and Discharge as well as the generation before Venom.

But mostly when we talk of Venom, like the blues, we have to ask: did this contribute something nothing else did? No. So... why bother?

Metal / "Heavy Classical"
« on: November 15, 2006, 09:07:15 PM »
This term was used on several of the websites linked here by people uploading or researching classical. It means modern Romantic/classical music, usually 1850-1930, with a "heavy" nature such as stormy large themes and epic scope.

It's the perfect music for metalheads to listen to while tuning their minds for combat and music-making.

1. Robert Schumann
2. Richard Wagner 2
3. Gustav Holst
4. Johannes Brahms 2
5. Anton Bruckner
6. Ludwig van Beethoven 2
7. Nicolo Paganini

It makes metal more meaningful to listen to this music. It's similar in many ways. It's of a longer form. It inspires greater creativity and aiming higher than three-chord "war metal." And it's just plain beautiful... and heavy.

The only thing that really takes getting used to is having a different ear to hear 68+ instruments at once and pick up the sonic range. Listen to it at top volume with surround sound if you can.

This individual is not a member/staffer of the organization.

Neutral comment for clarity's sake.

Just a word of advice: this topic is about to become entirely circular. Some people read Rolling Stone and take it as gospel, and they're not going to change their minds yet. Give 'em some air and time and move the conversation toward the future.

I'm just as sick of the contentless bitching that occurs around here and around metal in general as the original post describes; yet, I'm still gung-ho to set a better example.


That's why this thread is here. The mods and the users we use as yardsticks for quality (although we may not necessarily like them) have all seen that idiots have flooded this forum and given a voice to their pretense. We're trying to champion the opposite direction in part by pointing out how obvious the idiocy is.

Have you ever heard of multiple intelligences?  Sure I think it is largely bullshit, but it still emphasizes that no one is really good at everything.  


I inherently agree with this theory. However, it stands to reason that only those with the appropriate intelligence should comment on things that require that intelligence. I am not attacking you here, but some of the people who having no ideas of their own like to pull down the ideas of others.

Otherwise intelligent people fall into that trap all the time.  They might stay there, but I think after a while most will yearn for more and end up with more intelligent music.  At least they can learn and evolve, whereas a true moron will always be subpar even if they listen to Burzum.


I think this is what Blafbee was talking about when he spoke of differential intelligence. Some people who are "otherwise intelligent" have little critical thinking skill, that final stage in intelligence that is not measured on IQ tests. It cannot be tested because it requires a situation as complex as the real world and does not replicate itself in a replicated situation, nor is it always right. But over time it finds better answers.

I think this is what is meant by the apparently offensive phrase "thin intelligence" that used to be tossed around in the columns.
