Metal / Re: The Atheist reissues are finally coming!

Picked it up and bought it, or just picked it up? :D

Any word on the quality of "remaster" for these reissues?

Transmetal needs to do a "greatest hits."

Auzhia and Xibalba got mentioned in another thread.

I still listen frequently to Cenotaph's first album.

Good album; it and Auzhia's first should not be forgotten.

One of the few doom bands with "concept," much as Celtic Frost had.

Metal / Future of metal? (Yes/No)

So we've seen punk wipe away the pompous, overblown dinosaur rock of the 70's; we've seen the grunge backlash against the hairspray cock rock of the 80's...


Good summary - to that point.

Black metal was a revolution against all rock music.

Next, metal's going to have more singing, and get progressive in the way Morbid Angel and Slayer were (e.g. not Opeth). I think it's going to expand lyrically to be further like the English Romantic poets. I don't think it's going to get anti-Nationalists, or leftist/rightist like the boring punk bands.

Emo is doomed, indie is doomed, and black metal and death metal will hybridize.

After the Chinese invade, it'll be harder to get CDs out, so quality will go up too!

Most people consider D.R.I., C.O.C. and stuff to be Crossover.

History is written by the winners I guess, and the media won in this case, as far as I can see, but who really fucking cares?


Thrash refers to the act of skating, which was part of the culture.

When you study a culture, you name it appropriately

Unless you want to call ancient Germans "congoids" and refer to modern African-Americans as "klansmen," language means a lot.

Sad. Half of them are kissing his ass, and half insulting him. He should crapflood his own board.

Yes...


Because I'm an asshole, I might just mention that the CD cover there is not an official release, thus is not endorsed by the artists, and that one might think it's cool simply because it's a dead dude. My experience suggests that black metal is intolerant of fatalism, at least, the pre-1997/1999 variant is ;)

Metal / Re: Death Metal Sound
« on: January 01, 2006, 06:58:02 PM »
In my opinion, which is non-technical, the way to make distortion is to blast the shit out of everything, put some reverb on it, and then EQ it back into sanity. You might accomplish this with a noise gate or other limiter, depending on your setup. For the Swedish death metal sound, use two DMX86 (whatever) pedals in series. Most people now seem to use digital units, which may technically be as good as everything else but sometimes seem less chaotic.

I really enjoy Tara's riffs but IMO, Barathrum is their best.


Tara's very heavy metal, and like most of their later stuff, spotty. Great riffs are followed by cliches, and many songs go nowhere. Hence, I agree re: Barathrum VITRIOL.

Now can anyone anwser how speed and thrash got mixed up?  Because most everyone makes the mistake.



"Thrash" is a more marketable term than "speed." More unique word with extreme connotations = sales.

Music is a language. There will always be poems that need writing, books, etc - at some times more than others.

Metal is far from exhausted, in theory. In practice? Gimme a break. It's a wall of total shit with a handful of exceptions, most of which are far closer to "good" than "great."

And if anyone's wondering where Oliver Amberg, the loser rockstar guitarist who helped produce the abomination known as "Cold Lake," went...
