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 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.

Fuck that. Politics, philosophy and technology control our lives. If you choose not to engage them, you're giving up on that entire part of your existence. Not smart.

Therion can be a Nazi if he wants. The music clearly isn't Nazi, but these days, everything that offends someone is Nazi.

R.I.P. Demoncy. Well their legacy can now be shining beacon forever without any corruption by new releases.

Lysistratas, indeed.

I will always remember "Joined in Darkness." That album fuckin' rules (to use the collegiate English term).

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.

Hehe. Liberal Germans are the vast majority.

Seems to be changing a bit. Tell me the girl who wrote "99 luftballoons" isn't a liberal...


Metal / Re: What is black metal, as art?
« on: January 17, 2006, 12:47:36 AM »
I would argue that black metal (or at least, the black metal worth discussing seriously) is centered on the expression of reconstructive nihilism (that is, a nihilism that posits a way beyond the current order).  This, I think is the key divergence from death metal, which was concerned with a sort of 'postmodern' nihilism that was fundamentally deconstructive.  Death metal focused on, well, death.  Black metal seeks rebirth.

Sounds like anus.com's brand of nihilism. Where most nihilism is existential, or people worrying about meaning in their own lives, anus.com's nihilism is a spiritual discipline. It's not finding no value, it's removing objective value in order to find objective structure. Value = subjective, structure = objective; we are judged by what we value, and justly so...

I think metal has been suffering from a lack of dynamics, at least when it comes to technical metal.  

I agree. Tangerine Dream is another example to strive for. Black metal is generally "softer" than death - I'm thinking first albums from Darkthrone, Enslaved, Immortal here - and could be fused with technical death, noise and some classically-inspired guitar playing to make a nifty hybrid.

If anyone who went would like to write a review, we'd like to spread one around. Average readership of show reviews on anus.com: 51-56 impressions daily, higher when new by 5-6x factor.

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.
