Metal / Dead Can Dance "Anastasis"
« on: June 28, 2012, 11:41:21 PM »
Currently listening to this for the first time, and it sounds like a true return to form for the band. Brings back the ancient classical European feel that for me has been lost since Aion. Possibly one of the better albums of the decade so far.

Metal / Winterreise
« on: October 16, 2010, 05:53:42 PM »
I'm looking for stuff similar to Schubert's Winterreise. I've had a great reverence for these pieces, and it's probably my most listened (not necessarily favorite) work of Schubert.

Metal / Mystifier
« on: July 09, 2010, 06:33:30 AM »
On the topic of these "war" metal type bands, I've really been enjoying Mystifier lately.
Wicca and Goetia deserve ANUS review treatment.

Interzone / The Lightning and the Sun
« on: July 01, 2010, 07:30:55 AM »
I just picked up this book today and was thinking that it may be well-known around the ANUS or at least interesting to nihilists. It was written by a French esoteric Hindi woman under the pseudonym Savitri Devi. I've only read the first chapter, but I can't wait to get back to it, any thoughts on this book?

Interzone / Firearms, Weapons, Legality, Availabilty
« on: January 25, 2010, 07:26:40 AM »
I'm looking to purchase a few firearms, but unfortunately, I live in California where gun laws are pretty strict. Are fully automatic AK-47's legal in CA; if not where are they legal? Also, I'm looking for an all around good, reliable, and easy to care for handgun, what would be recommended? Glock 19? 1911? Beretta?

Feel free to discuss topics from if guns are necessary in the USA, to gun laws, to what firearms you find the most useful. A general thread about firearms.

Interzone / Making Ambient Music Nowadays
« on: January 08, 2010, 02:02:16 AM »
I'm very interested in composing ambient music similar to Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, but there is no way I could acquire the elaborate synthesizers and sequencers that these bands used. Is everything done by computer? Fruity Loops is no option. I'd like to own vintage gear like VCS 3 Synthesizers, Mellotron, and Moogs, but these go for such high prices that it's not possible. I have two options, using organic instruments like real horns and guitars, or possibly buying a top dollar digital keyboard. Perhaps the Kraftwerk route where I build my own equipment.

Interzone / Heights of Rock 'N' Roll
« on: January 01, 2010, 12:58:59 AM »
This is a thread to discuss the heights that rock music can achieve. It can be rather difficult discovering rock music that has substance.

King Crimson - Red, In the Court of the Crimson King, In the Wake of Poseidon - Forward thinking, progressive rock

Arthur Brown - The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - Dangerous, defiant, hammond-organ oriented rock

Jethro Tull - Stand Up, Living in the Past - ancient sounding, with contempt for the modern world.

Pink Floyd - Animals, Atom Heart Mother - When this band isn't going out of its way to sound whimsical and pseudo-progressive, they are pretty decent.

Interzone / Discussion of individual Kraftwerk albums
« on: December 11, 2009, 01:20:21 AM »
I love discussing this band, as their catolog is so diverse. The Man-Machine has it's own ANUS review, but I'd like to here some opinions on the rest of their career, specifically Trans-Europe Express, Electric Cafe/Techno Pop, all of the albums between Tone Float and Autobahn, and Autobahn itself. This topic may seem a little banal, but this may interest many others.

Interzone / Dead Can Dance "Spiritchaser"
« on: November 12, 2009, 03:27:42 AM »
Just got this CD, and I can't say I'm that impressed with it. It definitely doesn't have the ancient aura that Within the Realm of a Dying Sun and Spleen and Ideal have, instead it sounds like new age hippie music. Granted, maybe it will change my mind after a few more listens.

Metal / Lesser known early forms of metal
« on: October 05, 2009, 04:57:07 PM »
I'm looking for obscurish late 60's, early 70's bands that sound strangely metal. This stems from my discovery of a song from the band Cromagnon. Caledonia has this weird pagan aura, with lo-fi guitars and harsh vocals. Basically psychedelic rock that accidently turned into Burzum or Twilight of the Gods era-Bathory, though obviously inferior to the two. Unfortunately, this is the only song on their only album that sounds remotely metal.

Cromagnon - Caledonia (1969)

Flower Travellin' Band was a unique psyche doom group that made one metal album, Satori. The rest of their stuff is either poppy, or covers of bands like King Crimson and Black Sabbath. Decent compositions that show their east asian heritage.

The studio version of part II has been taken off of youtube.

I am aware of Averse Sefira, and NHV has thanked DLA in interviews, but are there many bands that share the same views and goals of ANUS?

Metal / 'The Planets' is my favorite classical piece of all time
« on: July 19, 2009, 09:44:59 AM »
It's not like I don't cherish Beethoven, and Bach etc... just nothing really does it for me like Gustav Holst's masterpiece. I don't have an answer why, but my theory is that my classical ear is untrained, thus I am more inclined to the more accessible modern work. Though, I dislike most of the 20th Century compositions that I've listened to. How do you feel about The Planets/other work by Gustav Holst.

Metal / Was Death By Metal a Seminal Recording?
« on: July 14, 2009, 06:09:45 AM »
Hessians seem to ignore this release. Mantas' debut demo was recorded in 1983 (Most sources now claim 1984, but for the longest time it was widely known as 1983), a time when Hellhammer was the ultimate extreme metal band. Granted the songs themselves are not amazing, but it amazes me how early this was recorded. The guitars are tuned to C (2 steps down), and the vocals are grunted and snarled by Kam Lee of Massacre.

Metal / A Positive Review of Black Witchery?
« on: June 26, 2009, 10:08:59 PM »

(Hellstorm split)

DLA is vehemently against Black Witchery, does this split stand above the rest of their material?
