Interzone / On Negative Capability

The ability to recognise and enjoy one's surroundings or situation, or an object or visual experience distant from one, without the need to explore its meaning or purpose, without any hint of "symbolism" on one's own part: "... when man is capable of being in uncertainties, Mysteries, doubts without any irritable reaching after fact & reason" - John Keats, 22nd December, 1817.

It is disputable whether John Keats was a "good" poet.  Personally, I like his work, and I feel that it is far superior to the work of any of the more "radical" British Romantics, i.e. Shelley, early Coleridge & Wordsworth, &c.  I would happily say that the deliberate search for purpose in either an abstract or physical ideal or object is detrimental to any work of art which could hope to portray said ideal or object.  Poetry, therefore, would be against Realism.  Is there, by this revelation, room for both Poetry and realism simultaneously?

Metal / Winter Moon - British Black Metal

Traditional, Raw Black Metal.  Two demos (one short, one full length) available for download on the website (see my signature).

Any comments or criticisms welcomed (Edit: so long as you give a reason).

Edit: I would like to make a point that the musical style has changed somewhat in the month or so that I've been writing and recording new material.  Melody, harmony, and a certain hint of the Baroque pervade much of what I am currently writing.  The primitive, and, at times, simplistic, nature of "Odes" has been replaced with a refinement which I am developing a greater taste for, an attempt at incorporating more elements of the Classical and "Neo-Classical".  Should anyone be remotely interested, I would be more than willing to share any number of samples and full songs.
