Metal / Re: Ildjarn - Norse-Svartfraed -LTD- 2CD
« on: June 01, 2013, 05:08:59 AM »
Isnt this pretty much the same music as Ildjarn-Nidhogg CD? Also, does anyone know when those Season of Mist re-releases are due to be released?

Is there anything of enduring value that has come out of decades of white nationalism?


This is the one thing of enduring value that white nationalism has given us: unintentional humor.

Metal / Re: Jeff Hanneman Dead at 49
« on: May 27, 2013, 11:16:01 PM »
Jeff Hanneman was a wicked alcoholic; he died of liver failure. He also abused cocaine for years which I'm sure didn't help. Look at nearly any candid photo of him and you'll see he usually appears completely trashed and/or is holding a beer.

He actually had an endorsement deal from Heineken as well as the usual guitar/amp/string companies, which meant he probably had access to an unlimited supply of free beer.

It's too bad what happened to him but this is what happens when you don't take care of your body.

I thought Deathcult was promising but had serious aesthetic flaws; thankfully, they corrected most of them over the years and are now at the top of their game with Farseeing. It's a long and rocky road to victory I guess. Win or lose, The Chasm always get respect and I eagerly await any new music they might create.

Interzone / Cormac McCarthy & modern literature
« on: May 27, 2013, 06:56:29 AM »
Never heard his name mentioned here, but Cormac McCarthy seems like the sort of modern writer that might be appreciated on these forums. Stylistically similar to Faulkner, conceptually more influenced by Conrad and Melville, but probably the best "semi-mainstream" American writer currently active. Anyone else read his books? The Road and No Country For Old Men get the most press, but Blood Meridian is definitely his masterpiece.

Are there any other suggestions for good modern writers I'm missing out on? I've already read and enjoyed Houellebecq, but aside from that I can't think of too much. Thomas Ligotti was impressive but maybe that's more my own personal preference than anything else.

Belial's "Wisdom of Darkness" is really quite excellent.

I studied the liberal arts and found it lacking in focus or rigor. Most of my knowledge of the classics comes from out of class reading, especially once I began to realize how much of the canon I was missing out on. Even so, I had to enroll in an Information Technology program at a nearby vocational school after finishing my Bachelor's to have any hope of decent employment. Many of my classmates at that school had unused bachelor's degrees as well.

Democracy is just a pit stop on the road to tyranny, and this is a perfect example in action.

The early music comparisons caught my ear, to hear some very similar examples of this style check out "Orient-Occident" by Jordi Savall and his Hesperion XXI ensemble.

Metal / Re: Good electronic music
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:32:39 PM »
Most people here already seem to agree on Klaus Schulze, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Autechre and Biosphere.

I also enjoy Brian Eno's ambient music, Aphex Twin (especially Selected Ambient Works series), Murcof, Four Tet, Amon Tobin, Portishead, Coil. Many of the more mainstream-sounding acts like DJ Shadow, Boards of Canada, Deadmau5, Daft Punk, Shpongle etc have some really brilliant spots in their catalogue along with (usually) some throwaways.

Sorcier Des Glaces is planning to release a new album "Ritual of the End" later this year!

Interzone / Re: It is time to reign women in.
« on: March 04, 2012, 07:30:51 AM »
As a younger woman myself, I can agree that most women need reining in - actually, most people do. The average person is a shallow idiot.

I might also add that the trendy "career woman" thing is a result of Westerners living in an industrialized capitalist world. What we call "gender roles" developed in a pre-industrial world where everything was physical. As men and women have bodies suited for different physical jobs, the gender roles developed according to that. There was really no concept of a "labor market" that needed single women in it. Men would hunt for food and plow the fields, women would raise the kids and do the less physically demanding jobs. For a woman, the idea of "having a career" was unattractive, not because women were more virtuous at that time or any retarded bullshit like that, but simply because work needed a relentless physical input that was beyond the strength of women. But in the modern industrial world, getting women out of the home and into the workplace is no big deal. The shit called "work" is done in centrally heated offices, in front of computers. In this push-button world we live in, male strength is simply not needed in the high-income jobs. Women can do these tasks just as easily. Hence, career women and feminism.

I'm pretty sure we'll revert back to our older gender roles if the modern world goes crashing down, though. Scourge put it pretty well.

I don't know, I work a physically intensive job and there are plenty of women who I work with who can do it as well as long as they're in decent shape. I think the real reason many women began working in the first place was because of economic necessity - as the standard of living continues to fall for most in the Western world, having a household where only one partner works is just impractical. Both partners needed to be bringing in income to fund the suburban McMansion, expensive oil, skyrocketing college tuition for kids, etc against mostly stagnant wage levels.

Interzone / Re: Should labels reject Nazi music?

I would reject Nazi music, but not music by Nazis.

Interzone / Re: ANUS Book List
« on: March 04, 2012, 07:18:33 AM »
I would strongly suggest adding Jacques Ellul to the book list - although he is a Christian and much of his writing is concerned with Catholic doctrine, "The Technological Society" and "Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes" should be of great interest to readers of this site. I especially recommend "The Technological Society" as a counterpart to Ted Kascynski's  Manifesto.
