Interzone / Eclipse ritual
« on: December 20, 2010, 09:49:55 PM »
If you're in a position to experience the eclipse this night, light some candles, drink some ale. Listen to or play some metal. Enjoy the cosmos.

Interzone / Sexuality and morality
« on: December 20, 2010, 02:14:39 PM »
Are there any true standards of sexuality that society should adhere to in an ideal society? I understand the natural aversion to effeminate behavior and homosexuality, and also the natural desire to maintain a monogamous relationship thus defending the family unit and increasing the odds of successful genetic reproduction. I get the pragmatism behind sexual morality. But what of those who consensually opt out?

Is there any logical argument against a swinger life style or other sexual fetishes as long as they don't harm the family unit and are behind closed doors?

And what of homosexuals in a future society?

Interzone / Bring publicity to ANUS jihad
« on: December 08, 2010, 03:47:11 PM »
We need to organize something for the next Day of Slayer that makes enough waves to get on wikipedia. I'm thinking anus.com scrawled on the sides of synagogues or churches nationwide. We're all smart enough to do with without getting caught. And so what if some of us do get busted. Most of us don't have careers or congregations that would mind a random vandalism charge.

Metal / Long Hair in metal.
« on: November 14, 2010, 11:54:27 PM »
This might have been discussed here in recent years but I'd like to look at it again. What percentage of users here have long hair currently? Do you think the role of long hair is merely aesthetic or does it have a deeper meaning in metal music?

I pledge allegiance to the flag
On the United States of America
And to the republic for which is stands
One nation under God invisible
With liberty and Justice for all

I pledge of alligiance to the shit
That runs the U.S.A.

And to this public which I can't stand
Inexcusable with poverty and justice
For all the short haired wimps

Interzone / Social stratification and religion in a healthy society
« on: October 11, 2010, 01:06:30 PM »
What role would religion play in a future society? I believe we are wired to believe in superstition, and further we are wired to take on the beliefs of those around us. The last 5,000 years have further solidified that in our biology through selectively favoring those who bought into theocracy, and exiling/executing those that didn't. Religion will have to be manipulated by the aware and likely atheist elites in a way to control the majority, as best I can tell. This has likely been the reality all along for the heads of religion. Any idea of eliminating religion is probably just as unrealistic as the beliefs themselves.

What type of class system would be best? Would there be a way for excellence that comes from a lower class to rise in standing, and likewise, a way for supposedly "noble" blood that exhibits averageness sink down to their appropriate level? I get the feeling a lot of us here buy into "nobility" a little too much.

Metal / Diocleitan - Doom Cult review.
« on: October 10, 2010, 11:40:50 AM »
In an effort to continue to post forward thinking content ;

One of the most well known of the close-knit and virile New Zealand death/black scene, Kiwi act Diocletian‘s full length falls and fits clearly within the war metal sound as was pioneered by Blasphemy, and taken to a more nihilist, apocalyptic climax by fellow Canadians, Conqueror and their suceeding act, Revenge.

Structurally, the songs of Diocletian adhere to the musical formulas that define Canadian death/black metal hybrids, but the production whilst still raw, is not as lo-fi and has more streamlined engineering on the guitars and drums, with the bass guitar playing, an unlikely rarity in such high intensity music, thankfully audible. Barked, roaring vocals commonplace within this niche of metal predominate ‘Doom Cult’. The tonal quality of the guitars whilst not trebly are less bass-heavy than what you would expect from an Revenge or Sacramentary Abolishment record, is of enough clarity to possess a harmonic distinction that has a similar quality to a less Norse-influenced Demoncy, and even draws a parallel to the first full length by Profanatica. To add to this, a similarity that vaguely resembles the ‘Cut Your Flesh And Worship Satan’ album by Antaeus is present, in that nuances of distortion and feedback, samples of a warlike nature are used to build and intensity the framework of the album.

Along with a savage execution and great understanding of the pattern language that informs this style of music, Diocletian put forth an excellent full length.


Metal / Ascension of Sepulchral Echoes: A Finnish Death Metal Revival
« on: October 10, 2010, 11:28:17 AM »

Not only does this piece highlight active bands, I am really impressed with how they engaged numerous bands at once. There is a sense of unity and a goal to this movement. In a beautiful paradox, Death Metal lives again!

Metal / Goreaphobia - Mortal Repulsion.
« on: October 05, 2010, 10:05:54 AM »

Probably the best release of 2009 in all of metal. The awareness of black metal techniques but strict adherence to Ancient Death Metal makes this document simultaneously unique while still feeling like something brought to us by way of a wormhole through spacetime that connects directly to 1992.

Put this in the DLA immediately. Give hail and reward success in Death Metal.

Interzone / Hessian culture : Severed Ways - The Norse Discovery of America

Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery of America: Part 1 / Part 2


Has anyone here had the pleasure of seeing "Severed Ways : The Norse Discovery of America"?

It's rare that a movie that features metal is actually a metal movie, in terms of spirit and its message. It captures the spirit of the best romantic black metal while also keying in on the conflict between Paganism and Christianity in Viking culture, both external and internal. Mainstream reviews for the movie read like a VH1.com review of Mutiilation or Burzum no doubt would. It's by no means a perfect movie, but I like it better than 99% of the junk that has emerged from Hollywood.

Thanks to Niko for sharing the megaupload links.

Metal / Varathron - His Majesty at the Swamp
« on: September 17, 2010, 01:41:02 AM »
Does this album even really qualify as black metal in a strict sense? The aesthetics of the band move this into black metal, and I am sure they associated themselves with Norway's bands, but musically this has more in common with early Amorphis, Candlemass or Judas Priest than it does Darkthrone or any of the black metal bands emerging in Norway at the same time. Like Havohej and Profanatica, Varathron were a deathdoom band masquerading as black metal, except with heavy doses of heavy metal in the genre's greatest form.

Metal / Revenant
« on: September 10, 2010, 02:16:20 AM »

This album is criminally under-appreciated. It's like a waypoint between Incantation and the speed metal roots of death metal. It has a quality not unlike that of Insanity.

Metal / Burzum - Belus
« on: February 20, 2010, 02:52:49 PM »
listening now, first track pretty good honestly.

If this song is any indication on the rest of the album, if new Slayer got praised around here, this will cause a flood of ejaculate matter.
