Yea, and guess what? I also like the National Geographic channel, along with most nature oriented programs and really enjoy watching Discovery or Animal Planet. I guess I am an underman after all.

In an unrelated story, I have a larger penis than you, could steal your girlfriend, and would supplant you at whatever dead end job you work at within three months. Me > you. You = fail. Kill yourself and become An Hero. EPIC LULZ.

Idiot.



There is a difference between reverence for structural nature and going to a zoo. If you can't see what's wrong with putting a price tag on nature and imprisoning creatures for money, then yes, you are a degenerate, and your genes are probably worthless.

Going to a zoo makes anyone of intelligence depressed.

Instead of watching T.V. about nature and going to see a bad replica of it in a large concrete establishment, try actually going to the forest.

Metal is not 100% derived from classical. Stop patting yourselves on the back by claiming lineage with this art . You insult the traditions of classical and metal alike by doing so.

Metal / Re: Serialism in Heavy Metal.
« on: May 07, 2007, 08:02:33 PM »
I know of 2 ( bad ) bands that actually use it.

The first is Behold the Arctopus.

Apparently they have a song about some "space turtle" which strictly applies twelve tone technique. I wouldn't be surprised if they applied it in fragments to other songs as well. Anyway, this band sucks.

The other is Blotted Science.

This is Ron Jarzombek's (Watchtower) new project. He has articles on his way of doing it here:

http://www.ronjarzombek.com/rj12tone.html

http://www.ronjarzombek.com/rj12tone2.html

His writings show that he has a weak grasp of the topic, although he does insist that his method bears little resemblance to Schoenberg's. Anyway, his ideas are not revolutionary or liberating in the slightest. He assumes that by creating a visual abstraction that does not correspond to the actual intervals of his tone row, he can some how manipulate the series of tones with any structural, melodic, or harmonic consistency. This music is not out yet, but I've enjoyed this guy's work in the past, so I will still buy it. In the meantime you can hear samples of guitar riffs on both of those links. Not amazing, but decent. I'll wait to hear the arrangements, although the inclusion of Alex Webster in this project makes me hesitant.


I guess the moral of the story is that bands that advertise that they use serialism are probably using it for the wrong reasons, mainly desire for attention from the music industry for using such "complex" theoretical systems. This boosts sales from the teenage musician crowd that wants a popular music alternative to music that requires little skill to conceive or play. It could be the shittiest music in the world, but the instant someone tells them it uses serialism, it becomes legitimate. This reminds me of Dream Theater. Their songs suck, but hey, they can play in 11/4! WHOA!

The bands that use serialism well will most likely never mention that they are using it, and thus you will most likely not find out if they are indeed using it, unless you have a very good ear or are somehow able to obtain transcriptions of songs.

You are unwanted here. Additionally, you probably have nothing to gain by staying if you post things like that. Fuck off, you worm.


Or have I been trolled?

many shit bands, but...

Cryptopsy, Immolation, Necrophagist, Hate Eternal, Suffocation, Arsis, BTBAM, Dragonforce.

Went last year and it was a blast, but there are even better bands this year. They usually have an upstairs place for demo trading and stuff it's pretty rad.
