Are they still going to call him Evil D (ildo)?

Metal / Re: Growing out of Metal?
« on: January 03, 2005, 12:22:40 AM »
I'll build from Prozak's since he partially synthesized the first two:

The "loss" of interest only seems to occur around those age groups (late 30's/40's) because that's the time that more people start to realize the "world of ideas" (I won't say "most people" because even still, many go their entire lives without ever producing/contemplating complex thoughts).

However, I think that it is this phase of growing up, not the age in itself, that causes a separation.

As I begin to roll  the stone of 18, I can relate to this: "One of the most notable changes, ..., I underwent in my later teenage years was the realisation that I no longer classed myself as a ‘Metal-head’ or felt much loyalty towards the current genre except out of habit. "

but I don't miss it either, and I'm glad for losing the so-called "magic" and nostalgia, because that is a necessary part of growth and I embrace that. People who run from this are the people who recreate the music they loved as teenagers well into their late 20's.

Currently listening to the album as I type this:

This new drummer is utterly sucking the life out of the music. From the production of his kit, to his lackluster, unimaginative performance.

That said, the melodic construction of this is masterful; Immolation has such a bizaare sense of rhythmic command. This is far from devoid of it's share of brilliant moments, however - this may be a silly thing to nag about, but guys, every single death metal band in existence closes their songs with those abrupt stop-on-a-dime hits. I thought you were better than that.

I'm not going to lie to you: while I'm really enjoying this, the maturity of it's creation and creativity most of all, I see the foreshadowing of decay.

You said it best so far. The guitar work is great, but that "greatness" is only achieved by isolating one part of the album, and as a whole, it steadily declines after a week or so of listening to it.

It is very musical and is not dumbed down as far as songwriting goes. The solos fit in place seamlessly. If I did have one complaint, it would be that there is a little too much metalcore drumming (I guess that's the nature of NYDM, but this is pushing it a bit).

I'll see what I think about the music after listening to it a few times (I just recieved it now), just so I'm not fooled by first impressions. I have the tendency to be a little more critical of metal when it's this well produced/packaged because I question the motives.

I will say that listening to the other songs has lifted my expectations as I was considerably turned off by the video.

You are a dextrous lead guitarist, which can have its advantages. Otherwise, the music was not very creative IMO and sounds like someone doing a parody of Quorthon.

I would suggest analyzing how the best music was made, and not imitating its sound, but learning from its approach and attitude.

I was talking about philosophy.
Nihilism is not Heathenism, among other problems.
In fact, they are contradictions.

Hey, if we called it "Realitybasedproeuropegreenistidealism", maybe then people would read about it instead of pointing out the most negligible technicalities.

[To my knowledge, the first two bands are serious, and the third has a reputation at least. It is said that Paul Ledney himself is involved with CiS.]

Come see:

(Profanatica "Cover" Band from CT.)

WULFGRAVF (Eurocentric BM from NJ)

GOREAPHOBIA (Original Lineup)

Many others, and a "surprise guest"

Something of this length takes longer to digest, but so far it's great. Thanks!

@Blaph: Same story here. It's dissapointing, since the ideology is attractive, but who even knows how much of a sham that might be.

I really want to hear this stuff, but I can't find the album on DC++. Anyone own it who is willing to rip it for me?

I don't know about an album, but you can listen to the band with these:

I haven't heard anything from them, yet (the conspicuous novelty is a turn off), but the fact that a band with this much FMP hype (where it came from - who knows) is making statements of this nature is not a bad thing.

"Most likely these rumors spread because of our general attitude towards these USBM groups. We're not afraid to say what's on our mind. In this type of climate, everyone is forming black metal support circles to console each other and make themselves feel important. We don't need to subscribe to such behavior, though, because our music can stand on its own two feet without forming some herd to act as a crutch, and that seems to annoy many. They get offended we don't do tons of interviews and release a new demo every month. I guess by their standards that makes us a hoax. I guess since we're not a cancer to quality music we're phonies."

Metal / Re: The Future of Metal

I agree with the assertion that aesthetic variants are illusions of "new" content.

However, the current known medium of black metal has been over-explored.

Think of it this way: The normalization of a once-significant word causes it to lose that significance. Ask anyone these questions:

How was your day? "Good"
How well did you sleep? "Good"
How's the food? "It's good"

The meaning of "good" is so incredibly tired, that it's practically a universal filler-response. The same thing happens to music when it becomes overdigested (though this is obvious to you, admin)

Every new movement in underground music possesed something that was an antithesis to the preceding movement. It sought to recreate the potency of what was destroyed, and build it stronger - learning a new lesson with the conclusion of each cycle.

There will be lots of "next big things", but it's not until after the eruption that one looks for diamonds. (ie: It's why I'm skeptical of that new Black Funeral stuff. Seems like just another serving of fireworks black metal).
