If more people would have backed me up with cash, I'd continued bidding.  :-/

I am bidding on this right now -- I will FLAC/APE it as soon as I have it in my possession.

I won't pay in inhumane prices for it, right now it costs about 3 cokes  :)

Metal / For fans of Genesis and King Crimson

Ethnic, folk-inspired prog-rock from Sweden, similar to Genesis and King Crimson. Apparently their influence has been international, I recently discovered them.

Darkthrone were right; they ARE too old. If they can't release anything up to par with "Under the funeral moon," then quit the band and do something else. This is just embarassing.

As an example of how confused the modern definition of Fascism really is, where it becomes an insult and a moral weapon, I have uploaded here a .doc(ument) called "The Doctrine of Fascism" (ot. La Dottrina del Fascismo) for all those who are interested in understanding Fascism. The English is quite simple. It is available, in book-form, in German translation ("Der Geist des Faschismus").

...or read it online here. Long Live Mussolini!

Do you think Hitler would have been Hitler in our age? People are as much products of their ancestors and environment, as of their time. Metal is a modern musical expression and to see history linearly is to be mistaken.

It's not the hair or the clothes that are relevant, but the music and the spirit itself. This is what differs modern conservatism from traditionalism: conservatives believe we can preserve tradition by dressing out in pagan clothes and mumble a few words from the Eddas. The traditionalists live the spirit of the tradition, regardless of superificial, external accessories that change with time. Expression and spirit are two different things, and even though they are bound to each other, one must realize that expression is a variable and not a constant, hence why we can create metal today that expresses what our people fought for over 2,000 years ago.

Swing was "whitified" but degenerate and that is why Hitler opposed it. White doesn't make right. Hitler celebrated Wagner and so did Nietzsche - and even though the two of them may have had different artistic conceptions of why Wagner was great, one thing bound them together: spirit, honour, heroism, tradition.

I like Summoning a lot and think the latest album was a success towards an instrumentation that really transcended most of the previous albums, and I am glad that the band doesn't place political slogans before art, because when that happens, the music becomes propaganda.

Most of the "arguments" in the statement can easily be debunked, since they're versions of classic modern straw man logic.

- Nationalism doesn't involve hating anyone, since that is racism and moronic. Nationalism is about loving your own people and culture

- No individual is a lonely island. We're products of our forefathers, whether we like it or not, and the things they thought and did have shaped us into who we are

- Leadership doesn't imply that people are forced to think in a certain way, but to unite under common values and let a leader make sure those values are acted upon

- The fact that cultures influence each other, doesn't mean that Cultures Don't Exist; otherwise it'd be kind of hard to speak of diversity, right?!

- Blues would never have existed if Celtic folk music hadn't been created; blues is a cosmocultural genre, which means addressing it to blacks only is a fallacy

- Perhaps many polish N-S-BM-artists really are of Germanic heritage, not Slavish?

- Varg Vikernes is far from the Fuhrer of black metal music (and from what he's written, he supports ancient Democracy and not Nazism). What made Nazism interesting for a large portion of black metal acts, was the idealism and heroism over morality, and the flirt with ancient European philosophy and mythology. In metal you fight for ideals and power. In rock music you sing about sex and hamburgers. Notice a difference?

With that said, I will continue listening to Summoning without being bothered by this. According to reality, some are artists and some are politicians. We should not confuse the both, even if artists sometimes contribute with sane political views, and certain politicans may hold artistic qualities (*hint* HITLER *hint*).

Metal / Re: Ambient & Neoclassical
« on: March 14, 2007, 10:23:57 PM »
The relationship between ambient and other forms of music may seem far-fetched, but is in fact something that has helped it gain a larger listening audience outside underground circles. Metal music, like ambient, is built around the compositional idea that originates from classical music: long and intense pieces communicating an active life experience, through the inherent variation in musical structure. The free boundaries of harmony in classical music, are in ambient used to let go of all sense of percussion and instead form a continuous rhythm by regularly looping melody and sound effects, until a consecutive working arises and determines the overall thematic and musical base, on which to build upon through progression or deconstruction. Like with classical and metal music, ambient is through its free composition able to take use of partial experiences, and merging these together to form a central motif. While most rock and popular music is built around one key melody without significance to experience, classical, metal, and ambient music can only be understood when interpreting the melodic/harmonic and structural changes in the pieces, and construct these together inside the mind of listener, into a solid whole representing and describing an overall ideal, sensation, feeling, or experience.

Check this out:

I think this was just added in the last day or so, and it dovetails very well with Nile577's review.

A great piece of read, thanks!

The short notice prevented several willing individuals from being present, so I was forced to carry on alone.  Unfortunately, hotel staff prevented me from distributing literature, though they did not prevent me from passing out compilation cd-rs to the youth present (made easier by the fact that the adult supervisors were more focused in impressing each other with their holiness than on the fact that their children were accepting compilation discs titled "Music to kill your parents to" from a black clad stranger).

After the presentation (the insanity of which I cannot even begin to describe), a prayer vigil was held, during which several members of the audience sought to touch me (the 'laying on of hands' in Christian dogma).  The shock wave that went through the audience, certain of the power of their belief, was palpable when I grinned, gave the Hitler salute, and pronounced the death of god before turning on my heel and marching out between the parting sea of the crowd was gratifying.  And I watched from a distance as the crowd dispersed, defeat clear on their faces.

I have received email contact so far from three of the youths that attended the conference.  We shall see whether the truth takes hold.

Sounds excellent. Could you write something up for ANUS News? ex: http://anus.com/zine/news/1018.html
