I just hope one of those superflus the Chinese are working on escapes in time.

This is heavy metal with the surface aesthetics of folk/black metal. Pop structures and entirely derivative.

It makes Drudkh seem profound.

I believe that if humanity's technology is left unchecked, they will destroy the planet. As in, literally. Shot to pieces.

Differences in scale are not differences in kind.

Didn't claim it was...

What I did claim is: humans are committing ecocide that will/has shattered existing food chains worldwide.

Do you disagree with that?

Predator populations often need to be culled by humans due to their lack of regard for equilibrium(not unlike us).

This is due to the radical changes induced by humans to natural order.

Animals existed just fine before we started changing things.

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.

Not bizarre at all. There are better ways than others for living well.

Some people may not prefer it or expect it at all, but it doesn't make judgment a vacuum.

If I lived in NYC, I'd wander off as soon as possible.

Metal / Re: Ildjarn/Hate Forest - Those Once Mighty Fallen

The title on this may be ironic because it can apply only to Ildjarn, and only if the band ships something bad. This isnít bad, but itís an entirely different form of music. Where older Ildjarn was an idiosyncratic expression in equal parts ambient black metal, drone hardcore and forest Oi/Rac-influenced metal like Absurd, this new material is clearly designed to sound like black metal. Its songs use typical black metal intervals, develop according to the pattern, and even use vocals in the same rhythms as early Dimmu Borgir or other first-and-a-half wave bands. If youíre tuning in to Ildjarn, you expect something at least as lawless and feral as his later work on keyboards; this will be a problem for many listeners. As far as quality, itís not bad at all and in fact is very natural-sounding, sort of like the first Dimmu Borgir or Graveland albums. Some have hypothesized that Ildjarn did not write the material, and the production changes and incorporation of additional instrumentation, in addition to the stylistic changes, suggest either a casual interest in this as a project to ďstay in the gameĒ or delegation of many musical tasks to a new team. Production sounds more recent than the early 1990s Ildjarn material. Use of background keyboards, faster bass riffing, textural discontinuities and other distinguishing effects show an interesting set of musical tools emerging, but the band may need to rediscover its voice. Hate Forest never struck me as being all that significant, but they make a very credible effort here, with production that matches the Ildjarn but is very carefully adjusted to sound as distinctive as possible. Their songs are fairly regulation black metal with an attempt to insert complex fills and transitions, and then to balance that, simplify the chorus riffs. The result is not atmospheric per se but achieves a relaxed atmosphere in which the focal point becomes the interruption, like a sunny sky with an intriguing cloud cluster. None of it is particularly distinctive but itís not bad either. Songs maintain atmosphere well but thereís not a huge amount of development here, so the band sensibly rely on circularity to keep from appearing jagged. A rumored Ildjarn interview claims that this release was an early 1990s project between himself and Ihsahn of Emperor, which could explain the resemblance to post-Reverence Emperor material.

1) Neurosis is a potential.

A potential behavior?

2) Any claims made in respects to the behavior of cats has to accept the human influence.

I assume you mean to their breeding/genetic changes caused by humans. That's true, however some [few] cats do exist in environments in which human contact would be exceedingly rare.

I expect neurosis is far less common among wild cats than domesticated ones. Though there's no acceptable way to investigate that, as investigation would induce human contact...

Anecdotally, I have experienced neurotic behavior in cats that were not the product of abuse. This statement does not disqualify abuse as a cause, and it was not my intention to communicate otherwise.


I have no problem acknowledging that dysfunctional members of all species exist. What my point is, and why I prefer furry critters to humans, is that dysfunction is not the norm among them, as it is with humans.

Cats don't have to think about how to be a cat, they just do it.

This is your argument:

Humans have modified a world in such scope that cats must be influenced/violence does not contribute to neurotic behavior/cats are intrinsically neurotic.

Nothing leads from one to the other.

I hope I don't need to clarify the difference between an abused cat and one that was not.

Well, there you go. They're that way because of humans.
