Metal / Velvet Caccoon: YHBT
« on: July 05, 2005, 08:06:41 PM »
Well, in the words of Whitney, the dieselharp is really a hype machine. It's one of our many stories we used to toy with the black metal scene because we knew it would work. It's just a big inside joke to us all. Anytime we see a glowing review for Velvet Cacoon we just chalk it up to another string on the dieselharp. The dieselharp is like CNN for black metal, it's the newspaper you get up and read each morning. It's the metaphor for our 365 day voyage from "who is VC?" to "Shut the fuck up about VC". It was a marketing ploy to prove we could fist fuck a dead scene full of idiots. It's not that we hate the people, it's that we find the message of black metal to be worse than Christianity and we wanted to mock every ounce of this community. Of course, this only relates to the interviews and shit we did where we gloated about the ecofascist dieselharp playing nonsense. The mood of "Genevieve" and the drug use, I can assure you, was and is very authentic. In a way we were playing characters of ourselves... some of the authentic parts of ourselves, and other parts were pure fabrications.

Metal / Another Perfect Gay (Englishman)
« on: July 02, 2005, 11:10:23 PM »
Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister is a Rock n Roll icon. "People have difficulties overcoming guilt", Lemmy said, "One thing that makes us feel guilty is our sexuality. I know many good people who are gay or bisexual, and I'm proud to say that I can Rock and booze with the best of them. Why? Well, because I am one."

"My sexual urge for females was always a driving force to the music. Songs like 'Limb From Limb' and 'Make My Day' were written as odes to the female body. But sometimes we, as men, can not always find females to be the more... err... nourishing gender sometimes. Y'know what I mean? Sometimes this... feeling takes you over and you wanna experiment and try out new stuff. I am proud of being a bisexual, and this still doesn't mean I don't want a little bit of p**** on the side (laughs)."

(Nietzsche was right about the English/Americans, who are ethnically the same entity, as they have no single clear heritage and thus are composed of lowest common denominator elements from all.)

Metal / Philosopher says heavy metal is fascism
« on: July 02, 2005, 12:41:09 AM »
 The purpose of the Fascist formula, the ritual discipline, the uniforms, and the whole apparatus, which is at first sight irrational, is to allow mimetic behavior. The carefully thought out symbols (which are proper to every counterrevolutionary movement), the skulls and disguises, the barbaric drum beats, the monotonous repetition of words and gestures, are simply the organized imitation of magic practices. . . .
 --Horkheimer & Adorno, Dialectic of Enlightenment 184-85

Metal, indeed, might be viewed as the epitome of popular music's two most extreme dangers: a dehumanizing, de-individualizing techno-mechanization; and a mystifying, irrationalist "retreat" (however illusory) back to humankind's primordial "rhythmic" origins--to speak diachronically about a tension between myth and reason that Horkheimer and Adorno often deal with in a more synchronic fashion. And yet, with the hegemonic ascendancy of industrial capitalism, the twentieth century seems to represent a new "culture-shock" turn-for-the-worse in Adorno's exposition of his ongoing rational/mythic dialectic. When the rationalist in Adorno must speak of a century cursed by Hitler and Auschwitz, it is only understandable that The Dialectic of Enlightenment has, at these points, a very "dystopian" feel to it (Hohendahl 126), and that Adorno's intellectual angst and pessimism are readily transferred from the jackboot to the jitterbugger, from the martial frenzy of the Fascist collective to the fanaticism of the pop-music audience.

BANKS VIOLETTE: UNTITLED
Whitney Museum of American Art
May 27-October 2, 2005

The Whitney has commissioned Banks Violette, whose work was featured in the 2004 Biennial, to create a new project for his first single-artist museum exhibition. The work, a multi-media sculptural installation with a sound component, re-imagines the romantic sublime via narratives drawn from popular culture. The sound component is a piece of music written by Snorre Ruch, part of an insular music subculture called Black Metal, whose ethos embraced nihilism, theatrical morbidity, aggression and violence. The central sculptural component evokes a minimalist representation of the ruined skeleton of a church, a reference to the romantic iconography of such painters as Caspar David Friedrich and to an image drawn from a Black Metal album cover. Cast in salt, the ghost-like church skeleton, a familiar image of romantic decay, is reinvested with meaning both through the formal seduction of the piece and the viewer’s interaction with it in the space.

Metal / Megadeth
« on: June 25, 2005, 11:00:12 AM »
DM: My son (Justis) plays guitar in the band at the school he goes to. He goes to a Christian Academy and he plays in the worship band there. Which, go figure, Dave Mustaine's kid's playing worship songs! Which I'm very thrilled about, because when he was born, all I wanted was him to be able to know God's word, and be a black belt in the martial arts style that I've been training in, so he could take care of himself and if he's meant to die that he would go to Heaven.

He also offered less cretinous advice:

"Whatever it is that you learn how to play, learn how to play it slowly first because then your motor skills will grasp it. "

Metal / Feldgrau

Feldgrau - Mechanized Misanthropy

One of the few awake mental acts in metal of late, Feldgrau "Mechanized Misanthropy" is a cross between doomish black metal and ambient industrial music from former Angelcorpse members. Surprisingly, it has a far greater range of mood and dimension than Angelcorpse, and seems one of the brighter lights in an increasingly dark, repetitive, and low-brow stupid metal genre of late.

Metal / Crimson Massacre - The Luster of Pandemonium
« on: June 23, 2005, 10:34:56 PM »

"Crimson Massacre's music is a marriage of the avant-technicality of Acerbus, the flowing melodic textures of At The Gates, and the musical structuring of Bach."

Metal / Immolation
« on: June 23, 2005, 06:59:04 PM »
The last of the old school... and continuing. If they have a fault, perhaps, it's trying too hard to be current and not enough of the guitary/compositional mystery magic seen on the second album. Yet still strong: one of the few death metal bands left that delivers an impressive presence alongside music for the brain.

Excellent fansite with complete information:
http://www.everlastingfire.com/

"What’s kept Immolation going all these years?We love what we do, plain and simple. It hasn’t been the easiest road to travel down and for almost 18 years... sometimes I think we certainly must be nuts, but then there is nothing else I would rather be doing. That includes every aspect of what we do, from writing, to recording, to rehearsing, to touring and traveling and meeting people all over the world. I stop and think about how fortunate we are to still be doing this and to still really enjoy it and that’s all that matters in the end."

How does this stack up? Pickups sound good, feels great under the hands. Any opinions?
