Metal / Re: How to change consumer society

The mediocre now have access to the means of creation to some extent: changes through voting, web pages and blogging, making garbage entertainment, home "improvements" and much more. The broad accessibility came about because politicians or industries (the gatekeepers between crowd and finer things) in competition with one another sought greater quantity for popular support and profit. Most people didn't know about any internet in the early 90s. Someone in-the-know with access to the business and internet industries decided to get the crowd involved. Same thing happened with formerly underground metal: few knew about UM in the beginning (approximately mid to late 80s) then someone opened the gates to let the crowd in.

Well, if 99% of people agree with me, then is it me who is the moron?


Everyone witness a fine example of the argumentum ad populum fallacy.  ;)

I'm not seeing much of a problem with a little power for homes, schools and small businesses. Petroleum is essential for heavy cargo transit, agriculture harvest tractors and excavation rigs and heavy machine industries. The necessary torque can't come from a little trickle current from sustainable bio or solar power; compare a cordless drill with a drill plugged in the wall for an example. Our society is driven by mass quantities and rapid lateral overdevelopment. It's unecessarily heavy, stupidly inefficient and badly designed for our time due to the limitations that existed in the past.

You still have industrial society with abundant coal mines. Add another ice age with north and south hemispheres blanketed in frost. That would shut down abundant harvests, mass transit and communications.

Judas Priest began mocking christ in the mid 70s. The song Starbreaker was one of the first.

Metal / Misplaced guitar leads

Guitar Leads shows you how to play all those 'way cool' playing tricks to make you sound like Hendrix or Satriani plus those wild visual antics used by famous musicians on stage.

Imagine how popular you will be with those "tricks" up your sleeve.




Guitar leads best fit a composition as an essential, necessary element within the overall narrative. Misplaced solos interrupt the narrative like a clown showing up at an otherwise elegant royal ballroom dance. Bad leads prompt Hessians to wince and reach for the volume controls, or worst case, the off button.

Outstanding metal narrative exists without guitar solos. Burzum and Graveland offer us examples of mostly leadless composition while retaining captivating narrative. However, examples of appropriate leads also exist. The earlier half of Slayer's legacy of albums illustrates appropriately integrated essential leads within the overall narrative; the duo solo narrative architecture is additionally found in the earlier works of Judas Priest, a heavy metal band that influenced Slayer.

In conclusion, compositional elements like guitar solos can act as misplaced pollutants, unwanted guests, or impudent children among speaking adults. "Way cool playing tricks" sacrifice the whole for the ego of one and this error must be supressed for metal, as a higher form of art, to flourish.

Concerns:

1) increased spam mail due to spiders - we can try and disguise them. Gmail has a fairly good spam filter.


This is no more of a problem than email for members on this message board. The solution is to not list email data, but to have a "contact this person" feature with a server side script handling the input and SMTP to recipient.

No. The Islam is a religion of peace.


Agreed, but it must meet some conditions before attaining peace:

1) All non-muslims in the world converted or slain
2) Non-conformists and women killed if they get out of line

Then the world will have peace. Christianity promises a similar future, but in either case, existence would be a very noticeable form of social imprisonment.

i was yelling at the TV that i could think of not one slayer song about a female in any way, shape or form


Necrophobic, except that has more to do with birthing the antichrist in the belly of a contemptible dead thing than sexual objectification of living women. Women are good for other than the occasional nut recepticle.

The Pagan Front is not a "Satanic" organization. We do not support the Christian spawned lies, nor these "cult" fools that bow to some goat idol.

Wise warning. Most metal satanists, like metal social activists, adopt Judeo-Christian morality and these people must be shunned.

Metal / Re: Metal as European Romanticism
« on: September 08, 2006, 04:03:18 PM »
What's important is that European Romanticism asserts itself in the face of this queer globalisation fad and continues to not only remain, but flourish after this latest trendy fad has killed itself off. European Romanticism has already endured nearly to the end of the foreign fantasy cult of Judeo-Christianity. It is the responsibility of Indo-Europeans to maintain such eternal hereditary ideals, the output of the program code executing in the DNA.

even guerilla groups -- now have thermobarics' shockingly destructive power in their grasps

http://www.defensetech.org/archives/001944.html

US sombrerodude soldiers will acquire this “open source” technology while in Iraq and do a “technology transfer” to US gangs as they have already done with other technology acquired during military service in Iraq.
Once that happends the days of Timothy McVeigh will seem like “the good old days”.

To Tame a Land
Iron Maiden
Piece of Mind (1983)

(Harris)

He is the king of all the land
In the Kingdom of the sands
Of a time tomorrow.

He rules the sandworms and the Fremen
In a land amongst the stars
Of an age tomorrow.

He is destined to be a King
He rules over everything
On the land called planet Dune.

Bodywater is your life
And without it you would die
On the desert the planet Dune.

Without a stillsuit you would fry
On the sands so hot and dry
In a world called Arrakis.

It is a land that's rich in spice
The sandriders and the "mice"
That they call the "Muad'Dib".

He is the Kwizatz Haderach.
He is born of Caladan
And will take the Gom Jabbar.

He has the power to foresee
Or to look into the past
He is the ruler of the stars

The time will come for him
to lay claim his crown,
And then the foe yes
they'll be cut down,
You'll see he'll be the
best that there's been,
Messiah supreme
true leader of men,
And when the time
for judgement's at hand
Don't fret he's strong
and he'll make a stand,
Against evil and fire
That spreads through the land,
He has the power
to make it all end.
