In my view, Gorguts makes Cryptopsy obsolete.  Cryptopsy is overrated but not bad (from what I remember), and Gorguts's Obscura is brilliant.

Your comment and Cynical's are both dead on. Cryptopsy isn't bad; it's just low-tech, sort of like a better version of Cannibal Corpse. Gorguts tried for a higher standard of musicality. The idea of "progress" is bullshit but complex music is ahead of the blockhead stuff, and thus does not encourage a blockhead audience.

Metal / The Beasts live in Houston Feb 25
« on: January 30, 2006, 07:45:05 AM »
The Beasts

The place is javajazz, Houston TX.


This venue has proven to be shitty beyond belief - their policy of not serving alchol is antithesis to the ethos of The Beasts, and their draconian ticket pre-order policy has proven to be annyoing at best, leading to this post.

Should any of you in the Houston or surrounding area be intrested in seeing the show, you can purchase tickets here

Be sure to select "the beasts" as your favorite band in the list. This is important

Should any of you be intrested in the band or the show, go ahead and order tickets.  If you send your confirmation e-mail to runredcircles@gmail.com we will send people who actually can attend the show their choice of a live CD or DVD.  Those who cannot attend will get both.

KCUF Radio Archive

The infamous station that brought to the Internet airwaves the pinnacles in nihilistic death metal, atavistic and romantic black metal, and transcendent ambient soundscapes has been recompiled and archived in its known entirety to initiate the unfamiliar and inspire those who remember.

"Emotional detachment without apathy."

How can an art form that, when done correctly, lacks subjectivity convey emotion, unless it existed outside of the Self? Black Metal stands from the outside looking in, if not completely transcendent and all-pervading.

Very common to transcendent idealist artforms is this tendency to see the whole, instead of the personal. But sheep will always prefer the latter.

Again, music is a language. Think about it this way: How many ways are there to write a book? It's infiinte. Same with music.

Good point. The book is not its words, but its content - the meaning we derive from those words (we = the nonstupid). But lately, metal has been failing like a Macintosh on the content front.

Are all these people in shitty newer black metal bands who in addition to making shitty music, just ignore production missing the point, ie, that the production was not "bad" per se, but tailored to the recording?

Yes, they're imitators, so they reproduce what they hear of the original and thus, because they're imitators, they miss the point.

The idea of crap production was to emphasize the savagery of the music, not hide its incompetence.

2. It seems to me that there's an explanation for this sort of thing built into the nature and structure of modern culture and cultual mediation.

Yeah - where music was once judged by an elite few, it now appeals to the tastes of the uneducated masses, which means that everything gets adulterated to shit over time.

Mictlantecuhtli, Nile, Burzum, etc. are joined by one thing: their romanticism, as is historically consistent, includes love of cultures outside modernity.

I think it's brilliant and should be praised on the cover of every metal magazine on earth. But do they listen? Not to me, the fuckers... ;)

This is awesome. I think it should go into the Metal FAQ

Metal / How Metal Got Mainstreamed
« on: January 26, 2006, 06:28:08 PM »
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.
