Metal / Re: Wishlist for new SUMMONING album

This is great news for me.

I say, stick to the long melody style of Oath Bound, but vary the song structure. Its seems such powerful music is hindered by the formulaic approach to when melodies come in and leave, it usually happens the same way in every song, not just on Oath Bound either but throughout Summoning's life.

Only one, my best friend is a German shepherd/lab mix. With him, I have discovered that one of the greatest joys in life is to break into spontaneous running for no other reason than to do it. He laughs at me as I caper around like an ape, I laugh at him when he runs into things, and the squirrels laugh at us as we stomp about their trees threatening to climb them. He has a certain taste for Metal and Punk, as when my friend was playing riffs on the guitar in my house I suddenly found my arm in his mouth and we began thrashing about at each other in a mosh. He is also a soccer player and though he does not understand any organisation to our play as of yet, he is quite adept at passing the ball or keeping it away from me and manipulating it between all four legs and snout.

Interzone / Why is this place a lurker's haven?

There are always dozens of guests viewing this site at any given time. I'm sure there are the usual spam bots, but perhaps more enjoy reading this place than you see admitted elsewhere:


Seems like many hate this place, usually the most vocal ones are the irony worshiping morons, big surprise. What do they combat us with? Memes, ignorance, kneejerk RASCISM claims, and a self-congratulatory LOL.

Every "new" Black Metal act seems to be scrambling to try and reinvent the genre and breathe new life into it, whereas I think Anu realized that there's no need for this. Anu's biggest criticism from people seems to be "Oh well there's nothing really innovative about it" - well, that's exactly what entranced me about their live set. There was nothing innovative about it, at all.

I tend to disagree with this. There's a veritable legion of Black Metal bands who do nothing new and pride themselves for it, they're even marketed for it. I have no idea as to the band in questions quality, but being "nothing new" is nothing new. I for one WOULD like to see Black Metal expand, no not by adding in a fuckton of various incompatible genres or the destruction and dissection of its spirit, but by bringing its complexity and evocative power even closer to classical music while keeping its spirit and warlike assertion intact.

Finally. A bit of gratuitous culture.

I like you. If you are a sham I shall be eternally disappointed.

Interesting. I know someone who displays some of these tendencies, so its nice to get some more of an insight into this mode of behaviour.

My synopsis; she understands that things around her are degenerate, or more accurately, of a false and corrupt nature, but she responds to them by dropping out of society and reveling in the basest levels of this degeneracy, instead of attempting to actually try opposing/surviving it. She recognizes that "growing up" is the destruction of values and your assimilation into a mindless world of endless consummation, but it seems her only antidote to this is meaningless sex, and again, total indulgence in the basest pleasures. Even though she's obviously of some intelligence her worldview seems quite binary; "I prefer to talk to smart guys, but like all girls, I prefer to be fucked by STUPID ones.  It's because they fuck better than you dorky, timid, question-asking, hesitant, apologetic nerds", we are not applicable to this kind of worldview, we are pragmatists, we strive to be as Ulysses. Therefore, when Anus comes up at her blog it seems she doesn't quite know what to make of it, of course someone like that would consider Metal crappy, it is music that recalls victory and glorious, violent, self-assertion.

I feel she tries too hard to be the enlightening perverted saviour to her pet demographic, the so called "geeks". To anyone that already realizes that society is going to hell, the value to be taken away from this is non-existent, save the sadness that comes with the realization that were this a different kind of society she might have done great things. This is the result of a world that values corruption over strength of character or intelligence, those who may carry them in the beginning are either assimailated into form or drop out of society. Maybe we can change that.

This is the timeless style and at least for myself it will never get old regardless of updates and revisions. Every time I hear the medieval/romantic/symphonic style done right I'm utterly displaced for that time period. A lot of good bands mentioned here with subtle differences from the ITNSE standard.

Yeah, this is the Black Metal I first got into; mid 90's, quasi-symphonic, sorta complex, sometimes ridiculous and really, the last major development within the genre.

So what about this band appeals to Hessians? I don't understand, though I do enjoy Loveless.

On a theoretical level however, it could be said that this statement is almost irrefutably true. Embracing the values upheld by the DLA (quantity > quality, composition just as or even more important than aesthetics, Philosophy in art etc.), would equate with artists being more wary and inclined to go in-depth with their work, most probably eliminating the contemporarily persisting trends of laziness and superficiality. These values would also most likely alienate the masses, thus forcing them to turn elsewhere for their entertainment.

The above could be expanded upon to a great degree, but this is all that I can contribute as of now.

The problem that lies with the theoretical; there is a disconnect between what otherwise intelligent people know they should, or could do, and what they actually do. We are uninspired.

I also find Averse Sefira to be one of the last great bands in Black Metal.

Why not take what's good in everyone and leave the rest? If there's nothing good in aspergers, why wasting time about them? There is so much more in life. Apparently not for everyone.

Why not take the thread as it is intended and laugh? We should not discourage humour in the most unlikeliest of places.
