Metal / Tom G Warrior on Amazon.com

Tom G. Warrior of Celtic Frost, now user "rumorbid"

This answers the question, "Do metal innovators use cheesy online stores like the rest of us?"

Metal / Appreciating Metal in the Context of High Standard
« on: December 31, 2005, 06:05:31 PM »
I think it makes sense, when talking about art (as opposed to "entertainment," in which category Linkin Park is a better product than Gorguts) to pick the highest-reaching, most comprehensive, most articulate and most feeling works you can.

In that light, I'd like to say that in order to appreciate the next generation of metal, you should first have taught yourself to appreciate Beethoven's 3rd and Bruckner's 4th symphonies.

You might not think you like these, but if you can wrap your mind around them, there's a lot more learning here than in 1,000,000,000 post-1996 black metal albums.

Good luck.

How can you say that Skrewdriver is not propaganda when clearly their goal is to spread racial awareness?


Because art came first.

Same with Bad Brains and other racist bands (some would say Bob Marley and Peter Tosh belong in here as well).

With the explosion of the internet, practically every death.black, speed, doom metal band can hide behind a mask of grade A pure bull shit.


Even worse, the music has declined in quality.

If you don't believe, ask yourself this:

What album that has come out recently is as articulate or ambitious as Morbid An(g)el's "Blessed Are the Sick"?

Therion MP3s



Therion

"Distinctive among the Swedish death metal bands, early Therion combined the Celtic Frost aesthetic and style with heavy old school death metal on several albums, reaching from their roots on Of Darkness... to the epic and melancholy Beyond Sanctorum to the apocalyptic Symphony Masses: Ho Drakon Ho Megas. After that, the band faltered with Lepaca Kliffoth but then reinvented itself as a type of neoclassically-influenced, occult-driven, esoteric power/progressive metal hybrid."

No MP3s yet, but I've seen them on the hub. I haven't heard the band and am skeptical of most reviews because I'm an asshole ;)

CDs weren’t really around in the ‘80s


Is this why the first three Metallica albums came out on CD first?

Yes, and what quality improvements has it gotten us?

History is greater proof than weird quasi-moralistic conjecture.

And, what makes sound dark on the objective level (from which we can all agree)?


I don't like the idea of having everyone agree. First, that stifles new ideas - this is why core-centric, slightly vague genre definitions works. Second, I don't want to have to dumb things down so that the idiots can agree with the smart people. Idiots fuck everything up and should be exterminated, and the best way to begin that process is to disagree violently with them.

Dunno. I prefer to judge posts, not users. This post - "Modern black metal does not impress me" - didn't blow me away, and didn't go anywhere:

http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/YaBB.cgi?board=metal_talk;action=display;num=1135603959

I am all for, in theory, free speech. By that I mean that among smart and clear thinking people, there don't need to be "rules" - but, this is an open forum, and even smart people screw up, and sometimes people have to have a space to learn. So I prefer to clean out the stuff that didn't work out, even stuff I post (happens more than you might think), because I'd rather this forum is a "good read" for people stopping by or our regulars.

I could write a book on this shit, because for me, being a sysop started in 1987 and I've done it off and on in different formats since. Dial-up BBSes, wwwboard (remember the first incarnation of this forum? lol), even PHPBB and forums like this one. I've dealt with IRC and USENET and BITNET roundtables. Part of having a good forum is contributing stuff to it as much as you can; a smaller but no less essential part is clearing out the dead ends. Like winter does to animals and plants.

Baxter, this is for you, and you, Chthgoneawayalready.

Basically, a forum should consist of stuff that adds to knowledge at hand. Ego-posts, pointless me too posts, etc. don't contribute anything and force others to read low-information-value bullshit. If you make a forum that reads as interesting information, people with brains will attend.

If you don't... FMP.
