Metal / The Best Underground Metal of 2014
« on: December 26, 2014, 11:04:21 PM »
The last real edge year for underground metal was 2009 when strong contenders and new voices united to defend extreme metal against the onslaught of imitators making Potemkin village metal from hipster flair and lite-jazz fireworks but underneath it, nothing but disorganized songwriting and an absence of something to express. As the underground has come back with a vengeance, it has begun to displace the imitators because their music simply does not measure up. This has created a backlash as the hipsters defend their territory with guilt, ostentation, pretense and surface-level novelty. On the other hand, the underground has produced some strong contenders.

Metal / MetalGate
« on: December 13, 2014, 12:23:03 AM »


#metalgate is happening. It started when metalheads pushed back against people who are well-placed in media, academia and the record industry who are inserting music with a "social justice" message in replacement for real metal wherever they go. They hate real metal because it does not reflect their ideology, even where it is uncritical or semi-supportive of that ideology. That is because metal is masculine, anarchic and warlike instead of being passive, herd-oriented and feminized.

Metal is not the first place this invasion by ideological zombies has occurred:

http://www.deathmetal.org/tag/metalgate/
http://www.deathmetal.org/tag/gamergate/
http://www.deathmetal.org/tag/comicgate/
http://www.deathmetal.org/tag/scifigate/

Metalgate is not about whether or not you agree with these people. It is about keeping metal free from censorship, even the kind done by small groups of fanatics independent of government. 21st century authoritarianism works by having the hive-mind gang up on an idea and bully it out of existence by threatening those who do not conform to what the herd wants. Metal stands against this. Do you stand for metal?

Quote
Metal is still dogged by the issues that arise from its deep-seated conservative values, but thanks to an increase in conversations about racism, politics, and feminism, those on the right side of history have gained solid ground.

http://www.deathmetal.org/article/metalgate/

Best moment:

"For years people have tried to make metal more sociable. They first tried in the mid-1970s when they mixed Black Sabbath with Led Zeppelin and produced hard rock, hoping that they could sell it to more people. 'Sociable' sells. Then they tried in the 1980s with rap/rock, funk metal and other abominations. Finally they hit on nu-metal but that turned into an extended conversation about the impact of child molestation. And then, during the early 2000s, they rolled out a metal/hardcore fusion that had sociable lyrics like hardcore punk has for many years."

Social Totalitarianism and Censorship

Quote
From the knuckle-dragging morons who brought you ‪#‎gamergate‬ comes ‪#‎metalgate‬, a so-called "movement" which alleges that Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) are attacking metal to cleanse it of everything that makes it angry, misogynystic, homophobic music for conservative white people.

But this year, I discovered that while I might not be interested in the culture war, the culture war is interested in me. It’s interested in all of us.

This is the year when we were served noticed that we won’t be allowed to stand on the sidelines, because we will not be allowed to think differently from the left.

Quote
Self-censorship is the worst form of censorship, for it encourages people to internalise illiberalism. It plants a secret censor in every boardroom and newsroom and gallery and even in people’s minds — an invisible tut-tutter constantly warning us ‘don’t say that’ and ‘don’t show that’ because, in the words of Index on Censorship, there’s ‘the possibility of a hostile response’. It nurtures risk-aversion, even moral cowardice, and it discourages people from taking great leaps of the mind or pushing culture in a new and provocative direction. It stultifies the soul. It hampers the human spirit itself. And worst of all, it inflames the intolerant: the more people self-censor, the more the censorious will demand it, whether it’s Oxford students, Guardian feminists, or foreign tyrants. If Guardians of Peace really is North Korea, then that shows that the West has become so allergic to liberty that even that tyrannical hermit state is taking lessons from us, borrowing from our book of using online intimidation to make offensive speakers apologise and retract.

Videogames are too violent! Pop music is degrading to women! Filmmakers are pushing ‘the wrong kind of message’! Over the past 12 months these have been the rallying cries of the cultural elite. And it’s shocking how seriously this spew has been taken. Hadn’t we settled all this? People aren’t stupid. Art isn’t ‘corrupting’. We can handle it, thanks. But now it seems the cultural sphere has been flux-capacitored back to the 1980s. Sex-and-violence panics about film, TV, pop music and videogames – dolled up in modern ‘progressive’ moralism – were all the rage in 2014.

Metal is Not PC nor "un-PC"

Quote
The funny thing about the ‪#‎metalgate‬ crowd (I don't view it as an actual movement, just fringe whiners) is the fact that there is nothing that effectively keeps women or LGBTs out of the genre. Rob Halford is gay, Euronymous was gay (RIP), Gaahl is gay, the list goes on. These are respected metal musicians who happen to be homosexual, and they weren't debilitated by so-called "prejudice" in the metal community. The only thing is, I don't like the idea of metal being used as a vehicle for something as superficial and politically-motivated as social justice. It blights its imaginative spirit and degrades it to protest music level.

What are SJWs?

Quote
“Tumblr is kind of like a gateway drug for activism,” said Philip Howard, 44, the principal investigator at the Digital Activism Research Project at the University of Washington. “Once you connect to other people who feel strongly about race or crime or gay marriage, you stay engaged on that one issue area.”

...Ms. Bailey said that many people describe what they do on Tumblr as getting an education on topics that aren’t explored deeply in standard school textbooks, like African-American history or colonialism.

...“One fault of social media is that it has people thinking that’s all you have to do,” she said.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/21/style/millennials-and-the-age-of-tumblr-activism.html?_r=1

SJWs are part of the Zombie Ritual: lonely people looking for importance in life by putting others down.

Metal / Re: What bands are you listening to today?
« on: December 08, 2014, 05:32:54 PM »
These are the sort of observations you must draw to listen to a lot of Beethoven's music as well. His works are almost always tied together by something that makes it consistent, yet this element is not always the same. Sometimes his way of transitioning through keys is so intense that it is difficult to determine the MAIN key of a movement. Sometimes this movement doesn't even make use of a main key and the main key is determined by the whole work's other movements of which this singular quasi-keyless movement is part of.

How does an artist conceptualize?

Experience -> Conclusion -> Metaphor -> Melody or rhythm-melody pair

The rest is setup for this and note choice follows those needs, with key as a guide more than a boundary.
