The Madison Slay-In is getting geared up!  I went downtown to the site the other day and it will be PERFECT!  Anybody in Wisconsin, or Northern Illinois area COME TO MADISON.  10 AM - 4 PM (we'll stay longer if people are still hanging out).  I've made some more phone calls to various city of Madison offices and I have confirmed we don't need a permit.  So anybody who wants to come Madison - don't worry about getting any hassle, and if we do get hassle I will deal with it.  PM me if you have any questions.

OK, I wonder what you guys think.  I called the police department in Madison and I asked them:  do I need a permit to set up a card table, play music, and hand out flyers at "Library Mall" (where I will be holding my Slay-In)?  They said as long as I wasn't selling anything I should be fine, and if the music is too loud they would give me a warning first.  So I figure, no problem.  Then I was exploring the City of Madison website and it said you need a "sonic amplification" permit if you are going to set up at Library Mall and you can only amplify from 11am-12pm and 4pm-5pm.  Now I've been to Library Mall plenty of times, and people are always playing music at all hours of the day there.  My question is:  do you think I should just go through the proper channels anyway and obtain the permit (but risk alerting the city/cops, ahead of time, that I will be blaring Slayer all day Saturday)?  Or should I just go down there, set up shop, and more or less "play dumb" (if I get any hassle).  Keep in mind that I DID call the PD ahead of time and I even recorded the time, date, and name of the officer who told me that it would be no problem, that I don't need to obtain a permit - so I have that in my back pocket if I "play dumb."  Should I get a permit, or not?

This band is the essence of death metal - violent ecstasy.

Well said.  It is really bizarre how unrecognized this band is, like you said.  I'm more of Final Holocaust guy, though.

MERCILESS - Unbound

Cool!  I didn't even know about this one.  All I've listened to by Merciless is The Awakening

For me, it's been:

Immortal - Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism along with their "Immortal" EP ('91)

not exactly an obscure pick, but everytime I return to it (as I have recently), it is definitely "refreshing."


Most recently:

Adramelech - Pure Blood Doom

Good pull.  Pure Blood Doom, and Adramelech, in general, is often overlooked.  Their work prior to PBD is good, too - Psychostasia, The Fall, etc.  I think I'll listen to some Adramelech today - it's been a while and it should be refreshing.

great topic.  I finally came to this realization, myself, over the past few months.  Forgive me if I'm just repeating what you all have said but the liberals created their own downfall by banking on proving global warming to justify why we need to stop a more general problem (pollution/ecocide).  Here is where our reliance on science fails.  Of course the "conservatives" simply say, "hey we only have statistics going back so many years, but the earth itself has existed for millions of years, who's not to say that this isn't just the natural cycle of the earth?"  And now we have a stalemate.  How about an AESTHETIC justification for why we need to stop pollution/ecocide?  Smoke stacks, trash on the side of roads, trucks emitting black smoke, giant cities and their ghettos, etc. all look like shite, and they smell like shite - what more justification do we need?  use your instincts.

Under a Funeral Moon, Transilvanian Hunger, Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism, Pure Holocaust - all have a number of songs (if not all songs) that have good lyrics.  Juvenile?  I suppose, but it works perfect for metal.  I find it tasteful to not attempt what you can't pull off.  I actually prefer art that is "juvenile," exuberant, instinctual, un-intellectual, feral.


Cold Winds of Funeral Dust

Under a bloodred moon in the cold wastes of Thule
Where wintershadows lies untouched
Where I dwell at the mountains of madness
In these shadows of death I march
In the blue mist of evil

Through the dark Northern valleys
Where only winds of funeral breathes
Hovering through the whispering darkness
With frost in my eyes

Only seven winds are heard
Chaiming through the dark Northern valleys
Eternity I pass eternity I seeked
For the darkness my spirit
For satan my black soul

Under a bloodred moon in the cold wastes of another world
Where wintershadows lies untouched
Where I dwell at the mountains of madness
Entering with the cold winds of funeral dust



What do these lyrics "mean?"  I don't know - but they SOUND good.

Every genre needs both musicians and qualified writers.

GREAT point.

I will be holding a "Slay-in" in Madison, WI.  I will obviously be blaring the Slayer classics.  I was just wondering what else might be appropriate to add to my playlist?  I was thinking "Blackened Images."  Maybe some Sadistic Intent.  Any other suggestions?

But wouldn't it be even more "egotistical" of me to think that by simply not going to church I am somehow crippling the entire Christian religion?

I think instead of attacking the church, and the moral/community/family structure that goes with it, we should infiltrate the church and remove the bad philosophy from it.


Exactly.


And what do you get out of it? Also, you sound like a teenager, get over yourself.

 It was like the Immolation song, "I feel nothing".


What do I get out of it?  Nothing, really.  Just a few smiles.  It takes 50 minutes out of my week, and I don't go every week - big deal - I have all the time in the world.  Why do I do something that "gives" me "nothing" in return, you ask?  Probably 'cause I'm over myself.  I agree with the Immolation song reference, though.  The service, itself, does nothing for me - I more or less zone out.  I've read Nietzsche's books over and over for years now, and I thoroughly understand how Christianity is Slave Morality.  I'm not a Christian, but I go to church every now and then.  That's it.  I guess I go for the "communal aspect."  It's good for the young people of the church to see a healthy, 20-something year old, with long, wild hair as opposed to the fat, crippled, run-down, people on the verge of death that make up the majority of the church.  Opiates and Heroin are starting to invade the town I grew up in (WTF?).  I figure Christianity is preferrable to that lifestyle for the youth of my community.  And if you think I'm stroking my ego by implying that the entire community is relying on me to go to church to save the kids, you underestimate the power of simply "making an appearance."  I admit it's not much, but it's something.

I was raised Catholic and in the past few months I've been going back to church every now and then.  It's the same church I grew up at.  I meet my parents there and sit with them.  My parents are so happy to see me and it makes my family stronger.  I'm somewhat well known in my community (I worked at the public library for a year and I was a pretty good football player in high school).  I get a lot of smiles and nods from the people at church.  I especially relish the smiles and nods from the young people who are still "forced" to go to church by their parents.  When I worked at the public library, I met a bright young kid there and he's an altar boy.  He really lights up and almost laughs when he sees me there.  I guess I'm being a "fake," but I feel in some really really small way, it makes my community and family just a little stronger.  It seems everybody's a "rebel" these days.  So how do you become a real "rebel," any more?  You rebel against the rebels.

on a side note, I noticed that the "sign of the cross" is ACTUALLY an INVERTED cross!  you go from the forehead, to the the middle of the chest, to both shoulders - hahaha!

it doesn't mean "conform," necessarily.  It does mean "get with the program," to an extent.  I say, simply:  pick and choose your battles wisely.  Don't waste time and energy on EVERY "battle."

I thought the spoken introduction was unnecessary and lame.  It just kind of threw me off - I almost laughed.  I don't know...I guess it's not a big deal.  Anybody have the lyrics?

Is that not from one of Pekka-Eric Auvinen's video manifestos? It takes on a more visceral context with that in mind.


AHHHHHHH.  I see.  Well if that's true, I DO think differently of it.  I had no idea.  I thought it was NHV.  If this is true, it's not quite as lame.

DARKTHRONE. Not such a big fan of Mayhem but can't say they didn't contribute too.


yeah, Darkthrone seems necessary.
