Interzone / Bill Hopkins: The Divine and the Decay/The Leap!
« on: April 16, 2014, 05:09:18 PM »
Doth anyone have knowledge of where to obtain this book? So far, I've found only a couple copies floating around the internet, pushing $200 each.

I would like to scan it and upload as a pdf.

Has anyone done this?

Regarding the iLDjARN/Hate Forest split "Those Once Mighty Fallen"

iLDjARN has confirmed to me that there's been a mix-up in regards to the source-material for the split on OSMOSE. The songs are my original compositions in their entirety, though uncredited. I think any listener will also recognize the tunes when comparing the two versions. There is, however, no quarrell between me and iLDjARN regarding this, it's a matter between him and OSMOSE.

The prelimenary synth-basses represent parts of what was later to be recorded as guitar and bass.

In the order they were recorded, with original titles, on my ca. '95 sketch-tape.

Evidently, Ildjarn is on bandcamp now: http://ildjarn.bandcamp.com/

Is Ildjarn rising from the dead (turning a Jesus™)?

Haven In Shadows
Haven In Shadows MP3s



"Melancholic Finnish black metal which attempts to answer the question posed by the original wave of
black metal: 'What have we forgotten and how can we recall it?' Meditative at heart, this is something lost within the current generation of black metal and is worth rediscovering again."

Worthwhile speech discussing the split between science and religion and how it relates to the modern conception of nature. Covers the artistic and philosophical evidence of this change, in addition to considering what can be done about it.

Interzone / Frank Schaeffer - Why I Converted To Eastern Orthodoxy
« on: January 07, 2014, 03:33:43 AM »
Interesting talk, touches on many areas of interest to this forum. Discusses the limp-wristedness of Standard American Protestantism (SAP) and the failure of modern education, in addition to an explanation on how Orthodox Christianity offers a solution to moderns dissatisfied with a Christianity stripped of meaning.

Interzone / Who are the pests?
« on: January 06, 2014, 11:09:11 PM »
Humans are creative critters. They have a well-developed ability for modifying destroying their environment, then expressing outrage at anything which might disrupt that.

Rodents? Pests!
Deer? Pests!
Felines? Pests!
Canines? Pests!

(Of course, any of the above can turn into Pets, if the human so desires - and as long as the animal behaves in a way which does not inconvenience the human. Then it's back to a Pest. {Pest/Pets - the words are so similar})

Of course, very few care to look at it from the animals' point of view: before humans, an earthly paradise of a self-contained ecosystem in which all had a role. The predators kept the herbivores in check, which allows plants the ability to provide a sustainable habitat for all.

Then along come humans, who bulldoze the ecosystem before erecting roads on which to drive mechanical monstrosities at speeds fast enough to kill any unsuspecting critter which may stroll across.

Humans destroy animals' access to food then wonder why they're trying to eat theirs.
Humans destroy all other predator populations then wonder why the prey is breeding uncontrollably.

I'm reminded of a leftist woman I had the displeasure of interacting with last year: in early winter, while flying over the speed-limit on a country road, she struck and killed a deer. Wonder what her reaction was?

"That DEER hit ME!"

Yes, it was the fault of the deer, not the domesticated primate traveling at reckless speeds.

The women she was telling this story to quickly asked pertinent questions:

"Were you ok"?
"How much did it cost?"
"Were you late to your class?"
"How is the car?"

Not one expressed any thought for the deer.

Why would they? It was just a pest.



If you want to save the environment, don't hunt the deer.

Hunt the humans.

Interzone / Anti-raciscm = racism
« on: December 14, 2013, 02:18:24 PM »

Retired Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Frank Barbaro wants a white man he convicted in 1999 of killing a black man to be freed — claiming Wednesday he based the verdict on his own reverse racism. The 86-year-old former jurist convicted Donald Kagan, now 39, of fatally shooting Wavell Wint, 22, during a struggle over Kagan’s chain outside an East New York movie theater in 1998.

But Barbaro told a court that, because of his viewpoint as a civil-rights activist, he didn’t consider a justification defense by Kagan in the nonjury trial.

“Mr. Kagan had no intent to kill that man . . . I believe now that I was seeing this young white fellow as a bigot, as someone who assassinated an African-American,” Barbaro, a former longshoreman who also served 23 years in the state Assembly, told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice ShawnDya Simpson.

Because Metal Is Art


Five things every musician needs

Those of us who have had the fortune to hang around the music industry for a few decades tend to pick up a few ideas about what works and what doesn’t.

If you are trying to get your music out there, you’ll get a lot of advice from people with agendas. They want you to do x so that they get y. What follows is generic advice for putting your best foot forward.

Demilich box details revealed

Back in 1993, Demilich released a killer album entitled Nespithe. The album innovated consciously in every way possible. It took the audience a decade to warm up to it, but by the time Demilich re-united in 2006 for a reunion tour, death metal had fully bonded with this inventive act.

Fast forward a few more years and Demilich is finally getting the recognition it deserves through re-releases of its classic material. These were originally planned in 2006, but got delayed a bit as the wheels of music justice ground. Demilich has just announced the release of a limited edition box set with a 44-page booklet, sticker and new cover art.

Black metal album titles illustrated like children's books

These pictures were originally innocent illustrations for children’s books. They were drawn by well-known but now deceased Czech artist Helena Zmatlíková who illustrated numerous books for children.

At some time after that, they were creatively edited by a member of Umbrtka who also writes for Czech Maxim. The innocence drained away, replaced by the eternal darkness of the blackest of souls.

Deicide - In the Minds of Evil

If you break any ground as a band, you will suffer from momentum inertia. Your initial direction will carry you quickly to its end, and after three albums, you will find yourself with a loss of direction.

This occurs because in your vision, substance and form were joined, and you made a language out of what you wished to express. For some visions, a lifetime of specifics can be created; for most, there are big picture things to do, and then emptiness.

Cryogen - Continuum

Two revelations before listening to this: first, when I first got into music I thought talent and ability were rare; now I realize they’re commonplace, but the ability to apply them in some non-inert interesting way is rare. Second, that metalcore — the mix of metal genres in the post-hardcore style of “contrast without continuity” riffing — borrows almost everything it has from 1980s speed metal.

Micro-songs: the shortest songs in heavy metal

About a decade ago, the trend of flash fiction or micro-stories seized the literary world by storm. The reasoning was that as people did more of their reading via phones and portable computers, they would want shorter, harder-hitting fiction.

Of course, metal was there first.

Pink Frothy AIDS frontman says metal fans are "close-minded"

Heavy metal music gets a bad rap, not just from people who dislike it, but from people who claim to like it. The problem is that criticism draws attention to the speaker, so there’s no better way to stand out than to stand up and say, “All of this is wrong!”

While some critics of the current way are motivated by a desire to create useful change, most people are motivated by self-interest and change for change’s sake, which lets them seize attention and/or power. Pink Frothy AIDS’s frontman Mikael “Mick” Åkerfeldt recently attempted such a power grab.

His statements, recorded in a Metal Hammer interview via Metal Injection, are harshly critical of metal but suffer a gigantic logical “plot hole” that makes them totally nonsense.

Sadistic Metal Reviews 11-24-13

What are Sadistic Metal Reviews? These reviews address the music itself, instead of the social impact of assembling a public persona out of bands you claim to like. Since almost all human endeavors are mostly mediocrity, there will be tender self-pity follow by rage. Come for the laughs, stay for the schadenfreude… and occasional quality metal.

Interzone / Do you attend church?
« on: November 16, 2013, 02:51:35 AM »
Or any formal construct for worship.

I don't. Moving beyond my problems with Christianity, I have no desire to set foot in these humanist-influenced churches that have more in common with a social gathering than with a reverent institution. I don't want my worship interrupted with attempts to guilt me into giving money to people supposedly trying to help starving homosexual minorities in Africa. Or whatever it is they do.

However if they had music like this...

Interzone / How do you want to die?
« on: November 11, 2013, 03:55:02 PM »
In battle?

Old age?

Eaten by a tiger?

Suicide?

AIDS?



Personally, I'd opt for any except for AIDS or old age. I'm not a fan of letting death sneak up on me.

Interzone / Leftists want to Track future Death Metal listeners with GPS
« on: November 08, 2013, 07:34:04 PM »
Quote
Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder to ask the Department of Justice to fund GPS tracking devices for autistic children--even though there are private companies that already offer this service.

14-year old Avonte Oquendo disappeared from his Long Island school a month ago. He has autism and does not speak. Unfortunately, he has not been found. Parents with autistic children are joining forces with Schumer, who issued a statement:

"The sights and sounds of NYC and other busy places can be over-stimulating and distracting for children and teens with Autism, often leading to wandering as a way to escape. Voluntary tracking devices will help our teachers and parents in the event that the child runs away and, God forbid, goes missing. DOJ already funds these devices for individuals with Alzheimer's and they should do the same for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Funding this program will help put school systems and parents of children and teens with Autism at ease knowing where their children are."
