Also for anyone in the know, what is the style of crushing "eerie notes" together that Mayhem and Throns allegedly invented (according to Fenriz on Until the light takes us)?
Basically full minor chords played chromatically. This style was pretty much unheard of before in metal, due to the way high gain masks all of the notes. The technique is most prominent in early Thorns demos. See Aerie Descent and Cursed in Eternity.

Chainsaw Gutsfuck uses the motif in a completely different way though. Considering the composition is in F# not E Minor.

I'm not sure what you mean by 0 3 2. Are you referring to fret numbers?

Any recommendations for Fripp/Eno?  Looking at their discographies it's difficult to pinpoint what years his/their best work came from.
Start with Evening Star, if you like that get No Pussyfooting and The Equatorial Stars.

They do have one or two of the qualities that Cargest suggested (if that), but obviously this style could be done much better. A few nice ideas, then the whole piece falls into meandering Slavonic territory.

Heavy metal either fails completely for me, or is unbelievably sublime. You're either complete boneheads, or you're Motorhead.

Metal / Re: New Burzum album 2011 (Fallen)

Late Bathory is a good example. Belus and Fallen remind me of the Nordlands. Trying to capture the old spirit with new technology, then falling flat in the area of composition.

Graveland news this time:

2 new songs from the upcoming album "Thunderbolts of the Gods"

Sounds very promising, as expected.

On a more superficial note, those drums are definitely not programmed. That snare response is the dead giveaway. A lot of the newest Graveland records sound like real drums.

Tangerine Dream.
They actually did make decent pop music in the 80's. Their greatest albums are far removed from pop music though, obviously.

I'd say pop music is defined by the pop structure and also, as stated before, the reason behind the music. Daft Punk is pop music because they make music as entertainment, Kraftwerk make music because they want to fulfill some sort of artistic vision.

"Music as entertainment" as opposed to "music as Art".

What's a good Rush album to start with?
The only ones I like personally are Caress of Steel, A Farewell to Kings, and Hemispheres. I don't think these are inherently better than 2112 or Fly By Night, they just appeal to me more. Start with the first track on Hemispheres, if you like that, try more.

What are we counting as pop music? Jethro Tull has a few good records, and two ANUS-reviewed mentions: The Doors and My Bloody Valentine.

Metal / Re: Long Hair in metal.
« on: November 15, 2010, 02:27:53 PM »
I used to have hair down to my lower back, then I cut it so I wouldn't be grouped with some of the burnouts that have long hair around here. I don't care if long hair used to be warlike, now it means welfare leech.

Of course, I think I look better with short hair anyway.

I'm not too tech savvy, but I will take a listen if you have any complete songs. I'll play acoustic drums, too.

I can't recommend Biosphere's Microgravity and Patashnik enough. Especially Microgravity.

Fripp and Eno's Evening Star is another album from that Tan Dream/Schulze/Werk era of ambient that is legendary. For classical with Moogs and shit, Isao Tomita does great work, I can recommend his spacey take on Gustav Holst's Planets Suite, along with his other classical adaptations on "Snowflakes are Dancings" and "Firebird".
