For what its worth, Blammen probably refers to Arabs here, not african-americans.

Blammen: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Viking-Attacks-and-the-Moorish-Spain-62632.shtml

Coupled with the fact that arabs are the ones mass immigrating, not blacks.

I have to admit, i like their cover of Love in a Void: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjxlJIojr58

It lost the bleakness of the original though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNJ9eWyxnZ8

At 2-3 months per song its obvious hes just trying to brute force things. After a point you stop creating anything new and are just neurotically tweaking things into regression.

In the 90s, they had a concept in mind before even picking up their instruments. Now their goal is to mimic the past, but without any of the context that made it relevant. Its like sitting down in front of a blank canvas and telling yourself "I'm bored; I'm a painter; I'm gonna paint something", producing something arbitrary and pointless.

It seems very few bands actually get better over time. Technical aspects tend to improve, but thats about it.

The thing with most modern intelligent people is: outside their small circle of acquaintances their lives have no relevance, their society is directionless, and their day jobs amount to nothing. The desperation to find relevance in their lives provides a drive to create. Creation becomes an indirect means to provide external validation of their existence. The problem is, once this validation has been achieved, their fundamental motivation is gone; any album after this point is just going through the motions.

Metal / Re: On the importance of VENOM

Bathory was influenced by Charged GBH and The Exploited to a fair extent. Basicly, all 4 bands just mixed punk and metal in slightly different ways.

Quote
...the three young men who would make up the first BATHORY line-up, met up outside Musikbörsen, a local music store in Kungsholmen a western borough to central Stockholm.

Ads had been tacked on musicians wanted-boards in music stores and record shops around down town Stockholm by then 17-year old Västerort residing Quorthon. The ads called for members in order to form a band "...in the Exploited, GBH, Motörhead and Black Sabbath style..."

If you look at the songs "Sid Vicious was Innocent" and "City Baby Attacked by Rats" the connection is fairly clear.


As far as the song titles go: most of those seem like obvious choices, given the theme.

It should be pretty obvious that study reverses cause and effect.

Depressed people are more likely to escape reality.

I'd be interested in doing art for the DLA book.

Something along the lines of the "Blessed are the Sick" cover would be interesting.

Doubt i could get that level of quality at the moment though heh.

 bullshit stories they make up about Einstein.


To me, this underlines a fundamental flaw in a persons thinking. It seems to be a commonly reoccurring pattern - people draw conclusions from the emotional centers of their mind, then try to justify it with logic for the sake of validation.

Incoherence is the result.

World Without End has some solid songs, but like someone mentioned, its basicly drone with flashy transitions - good for the situations that warrant it.

Winterblut : Grund Gellenkunst has a couple of good ideas on it, but overall as an album, it falls short - nice use of the hi-hats and bass guitar without trying too hard to be jazz though.

Shame their follow up album sucked bad heh.

A horizontal spindle based approach is probably the easiest to African-American rig.

Maybe you could use something like this to hold the spindles: http://www.winelog.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/WineTube1.jpg


CDs are 1.2mm thick so you'd need 4 12" spindles at minimum (with no room to shift).

Its important not to self-stigmatize. Depressed people seem to have the tendency to feel transparent; like everyone in the room can somehow see into them and know that they are depressed.

Usually this is not the case, and feeling like a leper is just going to slowly eat away at you.

In many respects we were the anti-hipster of today. We played Metal on generally crappy equipment, through well-used amps, and with little understanding of music on the whole. Today the Hipster plays his PRS custom guitar, through his Mesa rack-mounted amp with Bogner cabs, has every effect, tuner, and gadget on the market, etc.(all bought by Mom and Dad), has likely been been formally trained at some point, has mastered the internet tab format, etc., etc.
The whole appraoch was different - our bitterness, disillusionment and anger was valid, heartfelt and came from experience....Today's Metal-hipster is like unto the suburban white Hip-Hop wannabe, who fantasizes about life in the ghetto and fashions himslef after the latest MTV thuggery, yet has lived as pampered and sheltered a life as one could conjure. Perhaps one could argue that such a lifestyle might also produce disillusionment and rejection...but for very different reasons and in what seems to be a very affected manner.

Sounds like the typical whiny materialistic bitterness associated with mainstream "angry" music if you ask me. Its amazing how the lower economic classes love to lord it over everyone about how much more authentic they are for being poor - a blatant psychological defense mechanism if i ever saw one (1).

If you are going to reject society, do it based on ideological principles, not because your fragile ego cant stand having less toys than other people.  Otherwise you're like a fat goth chick with a chip on her shoulder - mad at the world for not being able to live up to superficial standards of beauty, adopting "anti-fashion" and masturbating over the new "unique" persona.

Ultimately, luxury is relative. No matter what, there will always be people better/worse off than you.

Consider also that most humans adapt to their environment within months. As a  consequence you are desensitized - making your house and diet largely irrelevant. As long as you're not living with cockroaches and malnutrition there really isn't any meaningful difference between being rich and poor, assuming you aren't a materialist.

Besides, if you eat lobster & butter every day you just end up getting a heart attack anyway heh.

(1)  Of course, this isn't to say the rich don't spout the same type of bullshit from a different angle, but whatever.
