Metal / Re: Iron Maiden, lyrically evolved?

This isn't really about lyrics but I thought I would add it here anyway;
 The somewhere in time album uses riffs that and melodies used in albums previous and in albums yet to come. for example the opening riff in wasted years also shows up in a slightly less developed way in losfer words in powerslave. Another part in the long distance runner becomes the main theme in fear of the dark. I thought that fairly brilliant considering it is a 'time' themed album.

The KCUF site is down. Does anyone have the story? or know when it will be back up?

I read somewhere that you're from Australia? If so, are you going to see them on their Australia tour next year?

American. I do not really plan on seeing them again (Saw them in '03), I like performances, but don't like being around the majority of other metal fans, so if I do go it has to be something that I especially want to see.

From Flash of the Blade
    You'll die as you lived
      In a flash of the blade
      In a corner forgotten by no-one
     You lived for the touch
     For the feel of the steel
    One man, and his Honour.

I don't think this passage was about fame, but rather your place in the world. It is about chivalry of course but it also speaks about dedication to your function in the world.

I'm pretty sure he didn't write it. The liner notes give credit to Steve Harris only, and that band gives writing credit where it is due. He also writes most of the songs.

My mistake, I apologize.

Why would you assume some marginal album is universally recognized here?

I recall it being a total mess (from hearing it 7-8 years ago), but I'm going to listen to it again to confirm.

I disagree with you completely on this one. It is hardly marginal, and I find all the songs fit together fairly well. It was the last cry of a dying band, and everything since has been whimpers.

still life from Piece of Mind

Nightmares.....coming all the time
Nightmares.....Will give me peace of mind.

I found this to be a cool part because it is taking something bad or horrible, and finding comfort in it  because it implies the existence of it's opposite.

to tame a land makes me think that Dickinson didn't read the book. not one mention of spice, harkonen, atraidese, freemen, or even the name of the planet Arakis (calls it planet dune).

Destroyer is definitely a good album, but one thing I have noticed here is that there is little need to note the great albums, because everyone already knows them. I don't think its unappreciated, but there is just not any particular need to talk about something that is widely --at least here it is, I think --understood.

Probably one of the same reasons Gaahl was talking about; waiting and hoping for change.

Appearance < Structure


your comment makes me think of general Montgomery's inflatable army in N. Africa. (appearance, but no structure). I'm supprised that people took offence to;

Man with long hair who lives by metal spirit: Good.
Man with long hair who listens to jazz: Retard
Man with short hair who lives by metal spirit: Good
It is so straight forward, how did people miss your point?

Gorgoroth is starting to stop tabletures too, they denied permission to metaltabs.com

Lyrics never seemed important to me, just the musical aspect (including vocals). As far as I can tell, the lyrics of pentagram is "quack quack quack", but it works.

Metal / Stuff at Battlhymn Records

There is a pretty wide selection of reproduced demos of obscure bands. They are, from what I have bought from them, one sided cassettes, covers are usualy printed on regular computer paper (except the avers sefira where it is done on glossy paper.) I don't know about the cds, haven't bought from them, but since they are still circulating releases I would expect something you would normally find in any other distributer.

Averse Sefira - Blasphomet Sin Abset- Cassette - 5$

Embalmed - Demo Reh. / Live from Hell - Cassette - 5$

 Darkthrone - Panzerfaust - CD - 8$

Krieg - The Black House - CD - 8$

Interzone / Re: How do you deal with "normals"?
« on: October 16, 2007, 02:44:19 PM »
When I said normal, I didn't mean Hessian, but people of intelligence, who don't delude themselves with distractions and pointless aspirations.  I don't shut out everyone, I discriminate between those who are sane, and those who are slaves.

One thing I did not emphasize enough is that a theory is just a theory, but people either dismiss it or take it as fact. People tend to forget that theories are not proven, and hasten to defend them like fact, and a christian will try to exploit that.

What annoys me a lot is how when one declares his/her atheism- it is assumed that you automatically substitute your belief in Christ for belief in evolution, big bang, etc. The thing is, they are theories, not substitute for beliefs. I have yet to find a christian who knows what the theory really is.
the mistake;
  there was nothing  ->BANG -> the universe

 The actual theory
 Universe contracts ->enormous pressure causes explosion -> universe expands -> Universe contracts etc. etc.

The mistake version I think originates from the chirstian-science people, who make theories and scripture compatible by changing both.

How do I deal with normals? I am the normal one, everyone else around me are fucked up empty people.

Interzone / Re: Hair

Mainly because I have a double cowlick which makes the hair stick up unless it is rather short or really long.

I have the same problem, only I keep mine long.

how about facial hair? I've been growing out my beard for about 9 or 10 months, about 4 inches long.

Metal / Re: Structured Albums
« on: October 12, 2007, 03:36:32 PM »
I believe the whole idea of crafting an album is dying out. Metal is the last genre to attempt crafting an album as a contiguous whole and not a raveling of songs. There are two ways I can think of at the moment that this can be done.

Concept- pull all the songs around an unifying idea, better known as a concept-album.

secondly, there is -like it has been discussed -through narrative.
