What Metal is
- In some cases, a form of ativism, in that it originates from reactivated ideas and genes

are you speaking specifically of Romanticism?  or something even more ancient?

Metal / Re: SINISTER and Percussive Death Metal
« on: May 13, 2010, 03:01:37 AM »
where the hell have you been?!!??  but seriously, it's great that you're discovering them - never doubt ANUS, my friend.  I prefer black metal to death metal, and on top of that I prefer other styles of death metal to the "percussive" style, but Sinister are definitely Kshatriya in my metal caste system.  Suffocation and Deeds of Flesh are admirable too, but I'll take Sinister.  Never cared for Cryptopsy.  I agree that Cross the Styx and Hate are their high points, but Bastard Saints is good, too.  To me, what separates the Kshatriya from the Vaishya is atmosphere, and Sinister pulls it off!

Metal / Haydn
« on: May 13, 2010, 02:34:19 AM »
I've heard some bits and pieces of Haydn on public radio, recently, and gosh do I really like him!  Not much talk about him, here, however.  What are other opinions of his body of work?  Any favorite pieces in particular?

Sometimes rationalists' skepticism just goes too far; as if they wanted to spoil the fun of everyone in the world.
So you admit this is about fun and not truth.

now you're the one being dishonest, Bob.

Bob and several others:  we understand your angle by now.  This kind of thing doesn't resonate w/ you.  fine.  I say either move on or earnestly try to learn about it.  You were good in that other thread, Bob, but coming in guns a'blazing w/ words like "bullshit" is...frankly, bullshit.  Octuple's response was appropriate as far as I'm concerned.  

Religion, mystic traditions, understanding God, etc. requires DEVOTION, you can't just read books - you have to LIVE it.  LIFE is so much more than "truth," in my book.

That's because the logical onus of proof isn't on non-existence.

What exactly would you say would be conclusive evidence of the existence of God?

perhaps only being astrally sodomized by The Almighty, himself, will compel these unbelievers to take to their knees and bow before that which man cannot perceive!

I am a complete layman when it comes to this topic specifically, and Hinduism, in general.  Can someone just point me in the direction of a book or give me a really broad "blow by blow" of what the connection is?  I read this on deathmetal.org:  "hidden within the depths of the most primordial of the Indo-European traditions Hinduism" and I know I've read this other places.  Was Hinduism actually brought to Europe at one point?

It might be because I am too young (20), but I can't really get into classic quite yet. Most of the stuff aside from some Wagner, lacks the...epicness, or shocking power that I like.

Difference between young and old is time, so give it some time. Even more, don't listen with a broken attention span. Listen while you do nothing else, or at least nothing else engrossing. Oddly the best time to listen to classical music is often when a repetitive, physical task presents itself.
Would lifting weights work?

Where do you recommend I start?

I don't suppose you do yardwork or mow the lawn at your house?  I have a big yard and lots to do, so in addition to listening to classical when doing nothing, I listen when I'm outside working.  It's uncanny on how right on the money Conservationist and Cargest are about this - Classical really does seem to seep into your mind and your body as you do repetitive physical tasks - it helps the work go along, but it also can make you understand the music in a different light.

I quite enjoy bluegrass for a change of pace now and again.

at Metal speed even...?

I actually like some bluegrass, too.  The Dillards are good.  Also some old country like Waylon Jennings.

and of course Classical goes w/out saying.

Baron:  listen to Classical, if you don't already.  You can't go wrong w/ Beethoven.

Definitely a brilliant book, but I don't think it's the best place to start reading Nietzsche. I think the more systematic works -- The Gay Science, Beyond Good & Evil, and the Genealogy of Morals -- are more encompassing and a better introduction to his  thought.

I completely agree.  I would cite the exact same 3 books as his best, especially if you are new to N.  I cut my teeth on Beyond Good & Evil.  The Antichrist is somewhat beligerent in my opinion.  N's "middle period" is his best, if you ask me, although I really like Ecce Homo.

you know, this actually highlights two seemingly paradoxical elements within metal itself.  on the one hand:  the desire to conquer the world.  on the other hand:  the desire to form some elite or secret "cabal."  the cabal aspect could also be seen as nationalism in a sense - let's do what's best for US and not worry about THEM.

OK.  Well just name it something else.  In fact don't have ANUS in its title anywhere.  make it a completely separate entity with a sort of nondescript name.  ANUS can still be ANUS that way

What do you (Samael) and you (assembled others) think of this?

I think you're right on the money.  There is place and role for both Arkists and Evangelicals here (and affiliated sites).  I think as long as there is strong leadership, we don't have to worry about getting a "Pantera version of the French Revolution." (but I don't blame you for your concern Sammaellofi)  The vetting process seem to be pretty good - unintelligent people and flakes don't seem to last long around here and I don't think that will change by being more evangelical.  I think the reason you need to be evangelical is you just never know who will turn out to be a real asset or where they will come from.  Like it or not there are a lot of really intelligent teenagers and 20 somethings that just need there hand to be held for a little while, they need to be weaned slowly, they are BEGGING to be led.  If a liberal humanist is intelligent enough they can absolutely come around to nihilism, conservatism, or "anit-humanism" BUT NOT OVERNIGHT!  The goal should be to attract people of "raw intelligence" not people that already agree w/ you.....  I just realized you guys are mostly talking strictly about the METAL "branch" and I am talking more about ANUS in general, but I think the point still stands.  You CAN convert people.  And if you ask me 1 convert who is an asset to the metal community is worth 20 failed converts, because the 20 failures won't do anything anyway, and they won't bring ANUS down as long as leadership at the top is strong and intolerant.  Bottom line:  we need leaders to shape reality through INFILTRATION and "disguises."  The Unabomber may have been right, but he went about shaping reality in a less than optimum way.  Infiltrate! Infiltrate! Infiltrate!  that's my motto.  But then you aren't being "authentic," you say?  Get over yourself and start working for the cause.

Metal / Re: Album Devaluation
« on: March 27, 2010, 12:25:22 AM »
So for now on, when someone asks you what good metal is, don't say Slayer, Darkthrone, Morbid Angel, but insteaed say Hell Awaits, Transylvanian Hungar and Blessed are the Sick.

definitely.

Interzone / Re: ANUS makes its "Divine Intervention"
« on: March 27, 2010, 12:22:17 AM »
there's a practical aspect to teaching people about nihilism.  Slayer has no excuse, because if someone is new to metal, there are plenty of other, more accessible or easily digestible options - in other words there's a whole genre of metal that has been around for 40 years.  Where is the Pantera to ANUS's Slayer?

This article couldn't have come at a better time w/ regards to a few friends of mine in real life.
