« on: January 21, 2012, 03:33:44 PM »
Really? I didn't join the forum for years because it was a circlejerk of idiots around a nucleus of good ideas.

...

Reply to you both - Yes. I know this, Conservationist. Well, I didn't understand that equal-divide-equal internet meme. Hmm.

The thing is, I always thought forums of all kinds were the enemy irregardless of what is being said. Social media produces social people... y'know, the salt of the earth types. Have you ever read Ellul, McLuhan, or Adorno? This is not conducive to an excellent mythic metal mindframe.

Ah, "whiny and pompous" was too harsh - the internet doesn't allow subtlety; another reason to stay away from forums! - I just think the place could potentially be so much the better for disposing of certain non-metal material and just being a place of metal excellence without all the, in my view, worn out social commentary which we all know regardless anyway. Let the music speak for itself. This is why I like deathmetal.org about one hundred times better.

I always thought Anus is a place that retards people in their own intellectual development to be frank. But thats why I don't post here, hehe. Seriously though, I really do appreciate all those experiences from the metal you guys have recommended.

Nonetheless, this is what I mean: Anus dishes out criticism that it cannot take itself, hence, why I cannot in good conscience like such a place. I get the feeling it goes round in circles too. And that it's followers carry a withering sickly malice against the rotten world that caged them, but they seek to disguise its own motives and lack of adventurous nature in metaphysical words like transcendence and so forth, rather than pervading the cack-expanse of their own emotional wasteland they find themselves in. Value is null, words are null, and they cover up an acute horror. And the way this place tosses around the word nihilism like its a plaything strongly aggravates my philosophical-emotional senses, especially considering how important a concept I find it according to whatever I've learned or experienced in life; which isn't much but perhaps I've seen something of it... because nihilism in practice can be a horrible thing, and if people really knew of its consequences they would fall silent, stricken, and could and would not speak of it to anyone.

Oh if only you knew. You'd weep.

"But suddenly the Mirror went altogether dark, as dark as if a hole had been opened in the world of sight. . . In the abyss there appeared a single Eye that slowly grew, until it filled nearly all the Mirror. So terrible was it that Frodo stood rooted, unable to cry out or to withdraw his gaze. The Eye was rimmed with fire, but was itself glazed, yellow as a cat's, watchful and intent, and the black slit of its pupil opened on a pit, a window into nothing."

I was thinking about this the other day... I reckon the site turned for the worse after it lost its black and red gore picture approach and became a popularity whore without anything of any significance to say back in... er... the early 2000s?

When was the last time you saw someone laugh on these forums? The whole place is a progenitor and promoter of the very things it claims to despise but in actuality manifests in numerous ways.

Back in the Black-Red days it used to be an honest, cool little obscure metal site that talked about some real quality stuff metal-wise. Now it takes itself way too seriously and comes across as whiny and pompous as a result. It is what it hates.

...

The metal section still beats everything else though, so thanks. I appreciate it Anus.

I'd say dISEMBOLWMENT's Transcendence into the Peripheral again after hearing it recently. Needs a look at.

Foeticide's Collection of Aborted Fetuses was a grotesque joy to hear. To think I would find such a perverse delight amongst a hundred boregrind albums. Excellent. The only gore band I think is worthwhile, next to Hemdale; you'd be surprised, as its actually distinct and interesting. Foeticide makes me feel like I'm listening to Nuclear Death for the first time again.

I wouldn't mind a brief review of Wormed's Planisphaerium too. Perhaps Rain Upon the Impure by The Ruins of Beverast wants a listen aswell, even though it is overlong in places. A summary of what is wrong with Wormed and Ruins might be just as enlightening as anything else.

Theory: Things evolve from one creature to the next.

Proof: Absolutely none. If this were true then there would be countless millions of fossils from mammils, insects and so on of an in-between specie.

Conclude: People will believe anything. If something is repeated often enough it becomes fact in the minds of the cattle. See for example; 'global warming', or the 'holocaust', 'personal freedoms' etc.

Love of one person is a sad thing to behold where there should be a love of ones tribe, land or custom as well. I thought they were all meant to support one and other. After a fashion. Now they are gone, one by one.

Besides, it is imperative to destroy any remaining bonds between people so the correct ideal can reign supreme. Love has no place within a biometric world police state or somesuch after all; perhaps, unless it is a love of death, destruction and revelation. It is not practical nor efficient.

Nice thread. Great to see Total Annihilation getting mentioned too. I thought FEAR was trash, though it had a good set of music with it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0LbjOJ7JGI&feature=related

Obviously we have the likes of Silent Hill and Soul Reaver, but you would have had to play those games when they were released for the best experience. I uploaded the excellent Stalker soundtrack here too - http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/index.php/topic,6610.0.html - I'm surprised the board mods haven't deleted it, frankly.

What about 'The Best is Yet to Come' from the Metal Gear Solid soundtrack? That one is just beautiful - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6miaTf1gF4g

And Shogun Total War - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYwlnVc5DBU&feature=related

And Medieval Total War - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykw76EJwx64&feature=related - like Graveland, perhaps.

What else? Possibly... R-Type Delta - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skUhrvxmrus

Interzone / The Will to Technology & Culture of Nihilism - Arthur Kroker
« on: November 09, 2010, 09:21:24 PM »
Insightful, colorful, interesting; a good book. This guy really introduced me to Heidegger and Nietzsche. Fascinating stuff.



On the new eugenics --

Quote
Transgenic determinism? That's the dominant tendency in global cultural  politics. After a long sleep during the interregnum years of the Cold War, the  language of eugenics stirs again: here articulating itself in the vivisectionist  visions of genetic experimentation; there pushed forward by a newly emergent  form of transgenic capitalism intent on coding, classifying, manipulating, and  harvesting the genetic history of humanity, animals, and plants; now working  in the laboratory procedures of stem cell research, clonal propagation, gene  sequencing, organ growing, and tissue replacement; later expressing itself in  the conjunction of bio-sociality and artificial intelligence to produce artificial  life-forms; never acknowledging its historical precedents in the first wave  eugenics of the hygiene movement of the early 20th century or the political  fascism of National Socialism; always masquerading itself in the cloak of a  science of completed genetics.

On an unvealed christianity --

Quote
For Nietzsche, the lasting cultural significance of Christianity has less to  do with its liturgical significance as a particular act of faith, and everything  to do with the fact that under the sign of Christianity a particular order of  values was installed in human flesh. A carrier of a dominant cultural meme,  Christianity was the method of moral eugenics by which a sovereign self was  constructed, representing both an embodiment of the ascetic ideal and a certain  sign of the defeat of the vicissitudes of human flesh. In Nietzsche's judgement,  we are always born at the precipice of defeat. Of course, what Nietzsche could  not foresee it that he himself was also the unwitting agent of the continuation  of the story of the will, that the name of Nietzsche may have been the 'gamble'  by which liturgical flesh of the Christian will could finally be dropped in  order to reveal a future of pure will - the drive to planetary technicity. In  this case, the importance of Nietzsche may be as a point of fatal turning, that  moment when the sacred object of the (Christian) will recedes from view, only  to reveal what has always been the abiding truth of the will to will, that the  humiliated subjects - the 'sovereign individual' - would prefer to will nothingness  rather than not will at all. In this sense, the triumph of the digital nerve  may be, in fact, the real beginning of the age of Christianity, the return of  the sacred object signified by the name of God in the form of a will to nothingness  that is inspiring because of its depthless emptiness, its "aimlessness" as it  sky-drifts across the horizon of social events.

On metal --

Quote
The aesthetics of Digital Dirt finds its real political nemesis in calm technology.  Calm technology simultaneously closes the eye of human perception and opens  human flesh to full passive absorption into the regime of the digital eye. I  follow Lyotard: No to the new grand signifier, No to the new grand ocular policing,  No to calm perception for a calm digital eye; and yes to the Lyotards' thought  that " it's the right moment to render this geometry totally invalid, to hasten  its decay and to invent a topological justice." However, unlike Lyotard and  Duchamp this moment, this right moment, is more difficult because today we do  not have to simply highlight missed chances for incongruities and incommensurables,  but actually have to seize back from the optical regime of the digital eye  the language of art and technology as a "transformation matrix", replete  with strange projections, electronic voids, virtual gateways, digital anamorphoses,--a  "hinged universe" of impossible perspectives and "topological justice" that  desperately requires that its digital future, its ocular future, its electroptical  future, be opened up--excited-- rather than shut down and calmed.

You can find the complete book online, though I suggest that you do not read off of a computer screen, you must know what that does to you, I guess...?

Metal / Re: Bands worth hearing thread
« on: August 22, 2010, 07:02:39 PM »
I found this band today trying to look for some new bands with an old school feel. I stumbled upon Chapel of Ruin, a death metal band from virginia. The drummer is only 14 and has only been playing for roughly 6 months, so forgive the sloppiness. If you like Bolt Thrower-esque death metal, you'll enjoy this band.  www.myspace.com/chapelofruin

I thought that at times CoR were trying perhaps too much to force a deliberate heaviness [Reign of the Darklord], as opposed to summoning up some sort of feeling through riffcraft [Torched Entrails]. Not bad atall though, for a new band.

Anyhow, I found a wonderfully atmospheric black metal instrumental called 'Sin', by Saedus Darknight. If anyone does decide to listen to it, please do so at night, when you are relaxed somewhat, for full affect. Here it is:
