Interzone / Re: OIL: Fossil fuel or abiotic?
« on: December 10, 2007, 01:43:38 PM »
the thing that intrigued me is that i could see how the abiotic theory could be propoganda for either side.
if oil was not a limited resource, companies could want us to think it was because it would make it easier to raise the price. if it was unlimited, it would be more difficult to justify a constant gas price hike.

BUT, i'm not trying to say i support either one, because the whole thing is a sham. it's a god awful money/greed trip that goes beyond the theories presented.

Kontinual, I am very well aware of all the mentioned Anselmo related projects...can't believe I actually admitted it. :P

At one time I actually enjoyed the Necrophagia stuff, but it grows tiresome after repeated listens. From what I heard, the Eibon project was most disappointing. Then again, most all the others were too.

Interzone / OIL: Fossil fuel or abiotic?

The more I read the more interesting this argument gets:

One side says oil is abiotic.

The other, of course, stands by the "tried and true" theory of it being a fossil fuel.

Either way, oil has caused much grief to us all.

let's ask david icke what his opinion is.

Interzone / Re: Why are metalheads fucking useless
« on: December 05, 2007, 02:00:07 PM »
not all metalheads are useless, although i can understand where your anger comes from.

when metal is done right there is no hint of rock music/mentality.

and lastly, do we have to get into the "poser" argument here? there are different ways of explaining things without having to go in that direction.

0.0000000000000011 %

those seem like pretty good odds to me. :)

i wonder what the odds were of the universe being created to begin with? in hindsight it's obviously 100%...but hindsight is always 20/20, or so i've heard.

as a side note to the atthegates fella, you don't have to be defensive and battle everyone. there is no way you are going to change anyone's mind through argument. it doesn't matter how much sense it may make to you, or how infallible your point might appear to be, people simply aren't going to change their minds through the methods you present. that being said, i'm not trying to be condescending.
now, i have no idea why you'd take advice from me...not really sure why i felt the need to give it. but it is what it is.

Humor me for a brief moment all...
I've read different things that speak of a race of ETs that look like Nordic people, and are of course referred to as the Nordic aliens. From the Pleides if I recall(supposedly).

I have often thought that it'd be quite something if we found out that ETs don't come from other planets, but come from other dimensions...making them Extradimensional instead of Extraterrestrial I guess. Hell, one might be sitting right next to you now and you'd not even know it if they are on a wavelength that humans can't perceive.

At any rate, since this is the chasm, there surely is some room for a "fun" topic like ETs, right? Just maybe not presented in the way it was here.

Surely some of you find the possibility fascinating.

Samhain was phenomenal, maybe I too over romanticize them because of the pivotal point in my adolescence when I first heard them, but the music still holds up. Everything Danzig has done since, I’m not so excited about. I can remember the anticipation, waiting for the first Danzig record to come out, yeah it was on DefJam, and it was hard to forgive him that horrible song on the Less Than Zero soundtrack (but if I was gonna forgive Slayer for doing Inagodadavita, I had to let Danzig slide too) I got it on release date,
I was never so disappointed in anything ever.  It was even worse than when as a child I found out who did Darth Vader’s voice. I even had my “Scarecrow Beast” tattoo covered.

But still Samhain is one of the greats, a lot of the 80’s doomy sludgy bands from where I’m from (New Orleans) were inspired by them.

i was too young when samhain was originally around(i didn't even buy my first danzig disc until just before 'how the gods kill' was released), and around 1992 when i went looking for samhain material for the first time it was nowhere to be found, at least where i'm from. so my experience was out of sync...misfits then danzig and then samhain last. imagine what it was like to hear only the misfits and then leaping into Danzig 1.
if i had heard samhain before danzig then i would have to think that my experiences with the material would have been quite different. samhain is great stuff.

Anything on Southern Lord is guaranteed hipster-bait and is best avoided unless you wear Chuck Taylors and spend significant free time in modern art museums.

art museums indeed...i think that o'malley fella does a majority of southern lord's artwork, if i'm not mistaken. maybe he wants his work to be side by side with Marcel Duchamp.

...but for the most part they are strong rock music. I like some of their songs but the theatrics are a little too predictable. The performance is strong but lacking in communication and sometimes energy.

I actually agree with this for the most part, which is why I was driven to ask the question; despite the band's flaws I was curious to see if anyone else had any attachment to this musical entity.

Interzone / What does Danzig mean to you?

What seems like a lifetime ago I was introduced to the work of the infamous Misfits, and through that the even more infamous Glenn Danzig. At the time I was still very new to the worlds of metal and punk, so I had no real reference point for what was thrown at me. I can honestly say that up to that point in my youth I had only heard Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath/Ozzy, and Slayer.
So the Misfits entered the picture and I attempted to find Samhain material, which was nowhere to be found in the rural SE Indiana area I'm from, at least in the early 90's it wasn't. So I went out and hunted down the first Danzig disc, quickly to be followed by II and III. For this naive youth it was quite an eye opener. I hadn't been exposed to anyone who used the romantic approach to anything "dark" before. So I have to honestly say that to this day I have never been able to honestly judge what these albums are truly worth to the metal community, because my bias is far too extreme in favor of them, mostly because of the timing and age that I was exposed to the material.

So, how would Danzig measure up to you in your musical adventures??

Interzone / Re: Music to fall asleep to/how it affects your dr
« on: November 08, 2007, 03:32:48 PM »
I have fallen asleep countless times while listening to music, yet I couldn't tell you for sure if it ever really affected my dreams or not.
In a somewhat funny story though, many years ago I was listening to Slayer's "Live: Decade of Aggression" at maximum volume and somehow or another managed to dose off. I must of only been asleep about 25 minutes, and when I awoke I was greeted with a military tank like greeting from the stereo. In my confused state I remember thinking that I had turned it on by accident and tried to reach for the remote to turn it down/off, only to see that the remote was nowhere to be found. In my foggy mindset I paniced, "Why is Slayer annihilating my house!" sort of thing. Anyway, I flung over, hit the power botton, and sat in a stupor while I gathered my bearings and figured out what had actually happened.

Maybe you had to be there...

i think the guys in Emperor were about 17ish when they did the split with Enslaved...which i like better than both "In the Nightside Eclipse" and "Vikingligr Veldi", although all said work is fucking awesome.

Cryptic Slaughter, Corrosion of Conformity and NoMeansNo are great, too. Minor Threat, Black Flag and Bad Brains are also worth checking out, although I don't find them to be quite as good.

some of black flag is very very good, while some of it is boring. some of the rollins years are quite a drag, but earlier work is an absolute.

C.O.C. today should be ashamed of themselves for continuous use of a band name that no longer has any connection to its roots. then again, many bands have done such.

Interzone / Re: How do you deal with "normals"?
« on: October 17, 2007, 01:50:54 PM »
i used to never talk to people because i wanted everyone to die.
but as i've grown older i can honestly say that i'll talk to anyone about anything, anywhere, any time; from satanic music to baseball and everything in between. fuck it. the worst that'll happen is i'll get called a dumb fucker, but i'm confident enough in myself to know that it doesn't matter.

this doesn't mean i am constantly pushing my viewpoints on anyone because that shit doesn't work. you just have to try and lead by example and see if anyone catches on. sometimes people pay more attention than you think...sometimes not.

if you want to avoid people then by all means do so. but don't do it out of fear, just be yourself.
