Metal / Re: Profanatica - Progenitors of the Omni-Riff
« on: September 19, 2014, 01:40:47 PM »
I think the key to Profanatica/Havohej is that the music is body music like punk or hip hop. It's something felt not something intuited. John Gelso has stated that he feels black metal is at its best when it's close to punk. I can't be that far off he he. But really, their music has more to do with movement, motion, aggression violence, mockery in dance than it does "Romanticism of darkness and reality." I honestly to this day cannot figure out why it is praised next to stuff that meets the standards of artistry upholded by ANUS etc. Etc.

I must say, I really despise the idea of the bolded, but Profanatica (at least considering Profanatitas de Domonatia) is proper riff based narrative music. The newest album was extremely disappointing. Your description feels to me like everything except a simple musical idea, it is accurate as far as the newest album is concerned however.

Do you want total war?

Screw you. You dont even deign to post in your own fucking forum, instead you let loose this creature on it. There isnt going to be `total war` over this tiny bit of webspace, just some people who cared wont anymore and will leave. Thats it. You will go on, we will go on, whatever. Write an article about it.

Free will gets a little more debunked.

Averaging reveals trends and obscures deviations.

I agree that a lot of modern conservatism is either just free-market leftism or romanticizing the past, but in the end conservatism is about the preservation of values (and value). Ultimately, this dichotomy does not really exist because Leftism is not really about anything. It is just against.

The modern world should not be rejected because that is impossible. The modern spirit on the other hand can certainly be. Excess objectivism and focus on the individual at the expense of organic society and the necessary suppression of some individualism.

Dont read too much into that comment Wild, I am not denigrating your understanding, it is just that I constantly see this pattern repeated. Say something that pleases the feathered one and you receive platitudes delivered in a tone of surprise (Wow! An actual intelligent being?!). On top of that there are often unwarranted assumptions made about posters (not talking about myself) and their appreciation, as demonstrated in this thread. It smacks of patronization to me, not that there is anything wrong with that, but the overall picture is one of partial engagement and mostly dismissal.

My own stance has gone from appreciation to concern and finally to compromise. I often find valuable expression in crow`s posts, but the content has never been anything unique and the rest of the package does not fit with greatness to my eyes. This forum is one of the few places where you can get away with saying you are basically the Buddha and have it taken at face value. I dont find it ridiculous or even unbelievable, just misplaced. It is whether such a personality should be the admin of a metal forum that draws my practical concern.

Edit: I am surprised you like that hipster witch-house stuff indjaseemun, it is pretty much what grimes is (try and catch people wearing death metal / black metal t-shirts ironically in her videos for a bit of distraction ;) )

We know far less about these humans than we do about crow

Sorry just a nitpick here, that isnt true. We dont know anything about crow except what he himself says and does on this forum and other places on the internet. Anyway you got one of those pats (beaks?) on the head so I am sure you said something right.

I had often been told that walking the spiritual, introspective path completely alone and completely without reference was dangerous. That there were pitfalls that one could encounter that would render any gains meaningless. I never really understood this, or at least did not accept it because there did not seem to me to be any reason why one could not persevere despite dangers. Now I understand that I was both right and wrong, it is in theory possible to develop in this way, but human nature means that it is practically impossible. I am sure there are exceptions, at least considering the scale of human history, and perhaps we have one such exception here. From what I have seen I am unable to accept it, hubris is thrown around a lot (as Imposition has mentioned elsewhere), sometimes it is a reactionary defense, sometimes it is inapplicable. On the other hand some things speak for themselves, so see for yourself and decide for yourself.

Metal / Re: Power Metal

Seriously... that is exactly it. One moment I am thinking hey, this isnt bad at all, the next, hey this is pretty good! Then the refrain.... Also not keen on the lyrics, though even there ups and downs are noticeable. I suppose Nightfall in Middle Earth would be better as far as lyrics are concerned. aquarius have you heard Lost Horizon? It consists of the members of Luciferion and despite being in the vein of ultra-positive fantastical cheese metal it takes more cues from older heavy metal/nwobhm than the manic speed metal that tends to annoy. Check out Awakening the World (sample).

Metal / Re: "Thrash-Metal"
« on: February 19, 2014, 08:05:22 PM »
These bands you mention are called here `proto-underground`. They are more than speed metal but not quite death/black metal. Thrash is stuff like DRI, Corrosion of Conformity, Cryptic Slaughter etc., the so called crossover bands. Sarcofago is close to this, you could legitimately call it thrash by the standards here. It doesnt really deserve much fuss to be honest, even if almost everyone calls speed metal thrash and even if it produces confusion and odd rationalizations, it only matters as far as consistency of definition is concerned. That is not unimportant, but it is much less important than promoting quality, whatever it is called.

Be sure and let us all know when you find out.
The idea is to know you're completely alive, as opposed to stoically enduring the state of not being dead yet.

That is my contention, this state does not seem to me to be akin to life (the life of man). It seems to me to be a way to lock oneself away from the transcendent, at the expense of the worldly (which then becomes all there is). So you encompass the worldly, it flows through your veins and you are at peace with it. As ashes. Or rather, as a beast I suppose. Not the worst way to live, surely vital, but meaningless, purposeless. In fact denying meaning and purpose as delusion.
