Metal / How Metal Got Mainstreamed
« on: January 27, 2006, 02:28:08 AM »
Metal was not merely a genre of music, but an antagonistic philosophy seeking changes in the status quo:

I always understood rock as a form of revolution of young people against the establishment. Though nowadays, of course, it's one big commercial machine, deep within me the spirit is there. I can't deny it, because I experienced it like that when I was a kid.1

Tom G. Warrior's sentiments were not always explicitly expressed by thrashing, banging, and screaming metalheads; however, his belief that "rock [was] a form of revolution" was buried somewhere in the mix whenever heavy metal blared from stacks at shows or headphones at home.

MORBID ANGEL - Altars Of Madness Dual Disc Due In March
2006-01-17 18:25:56

Earache Records are to release a Dual Disc format version of the
landmark death metal album, Altars Of Madness by MORBID ANGEL on March
13, 2006.

Considered by many to be a defining moment in the genre, Altars Of
Madness was first released in 1989 and is still held in reverence by
the majority of death metal fans.

The DVD side of the Dual Disc features the long sought after November
1989 Nottingham Rock City show filmed on the band's first ever
European outing, the legendary Grindcrusher Tour (alongside NAPALM
DEATH, BOLT THROWER and CARCASS) and is the first Morbid Angel
material to see an official DVD release.

A free replica ticket of this show is available with the first 5,000
copies pressed.

Metal / Deathspell Omega
« on: January 17, 2006, 12:00:04 AM »
I've discovered the truth: this band is Ulver Part II, meaning that they're insincere but musically adept enough to make black metal that's better than the rest, but empty as hell when listened to over a long term.

Infernal Battles: This is a blatant Gorgoroth ripoff, even down to production, and while it passes conveniently without disturbing and while being "good" in the most basic sense, it's wallpaper.

Kenose: A trend attempt that is the faux elitist black metal equivalent of Pantera.

Si Monumentum Requires Circumspice: They might as well call this "Automatic for the People" - like later REM, it's musically better than their earlier stuff, and any one moment is beautiful and even profound, but when stitched together, it's mostly aesthetic and has nothing to say.

There was some other 2-song or 3-song EP I heard, but it was complete fucking garbage. Send this band and Ulver back to Africa.

Metal / Burzum forums
« on: January 15, 2006, 11:49:19 PM »
We've just restored the Burzum forum. It needs experienced users who can contribute interesting conversation to drown out the inevitable idiots. Frostwood is finding us some moderators, so if you're interested send him a line.

Music

Rumors of a new Burzum album float around. Apparently, it's a metal album and will be made either from prison or immediately following release.

* Should another album be made?

* Should it be metal, keyboard or traditional Norsk instruments?

* Should he continue to avoid directly stating political opinion, so his albums keep that "power art" feel?

* Who's going to publish it?

Some of us here talked it over and here was the consensus: no to more politics in the music; keep it in interviews. Yes to another album, no to metal. We have no idea how he'll get it published.

- Music forum

Ideas

All musicians have ideas. These ideas, when they deal with other people, are political. Even the most "individualistic" person wants to control others. Musicians, like any artists, when they make music will often incorporate some of these ideas. Some are purely in sound form, and others are given words, and here's where they can get into trouble.

It's not race itself that's the taboo of our time. It's the idea that we are determined by biological factors more than social ones. Society wants to believe it can give us money, educate us, indoctrinate us and force us through public health care and it will have produced the best citizens it can. The ugly (for some) truth is that much as we breed animals or plants, we have to breed humans. Race is part of this, as is eugenics, as is worship of genius. This taboo line defies our modern philosophy of "materialistic individualism."

Varg, unlike most metal musicians, was willing to cross that line -- and others follow (bravery is rewarded, sometimes).

All the good things in life are not for sale. Fine art can be sold, but you're buying the CD, not the ability to create or understand or share the music. Culture cannot be created with televisions, nor can it be made profitable. It's either culture, or consumerism. It's either good leadership, or democracy. It's either racial separation, or genocide. Burzum stepped out and showed us that, if we want to see the world of higher ideals and fantasy shown us in his music, we have to oppose modern society at a philosophical level.

- Ideas Forum

Community

Many good topics arose on the last incarnation, although admittedly it died a slow and painful death. The popularity of Burzum within Black Metal invites all sorts of people. Especially the wild, liberal trolls complaining about the ideals of Varg... such is life.

Are these forums going to be publicised soon?

- Community Forum

If you want to help:

* Post the URL to the forum everywhere as a new message, for example in blog or forum or news service, Subject: New Burzum Forum launched; content: any part of the above message.

* Put the URL in your signature file on any forums or userlink services (MySpace, LinkedIn, Ringo) where you're a member.

* Anytime you rip a Burzum mp3, include site URL and forum URL in a README.TXT file.

Thanks!

It's going to be very exciting and something not to be missed!."

ATHEIST will take part on Evolution Festival (scheduled for July 16 and 17 in Brescia, Italy) and Wacken Open Air (scheduled for August 3-5 in Schleswig Holstein, Germany). These will be the first in a series of exclusive festival performances announced.

Many thanks to the Evolution Festival and Wacken for helping to give many people who never got to see ATHEIST live a chance to see us one last time. This is our chance to make the music we worked so hard to create come alive one last time, and we guarantee that it will not disappoint."

Metal / Democracy, Freedom and metal
« on: January 10, 2006, 11:44:03 PM »
The way in which Freakcontrol has been conceived, is different from how KONG used to work, which was as democratically as possible. Mark: "First our drummer decided he wanted to quit the band. Then Marieke told us she wanted to have less to do with the process of songwriting. Which left Dirk and me with a lot of freedom." - KONG

Metal / Metal, Rock and Jazz by Harris Berger
« on: January 09, 2006, 11:42:11 PM »
I recommend tracking down the book "Metal, Rock And Jazz" by Harris Berger and especially reading the chapter in which he and a death metal guitarist go through a harmonic analysis of one of the guitarist's songs.
