Sodom, Bathory and Hellhammer were more death metal in many ways than Possessed. All of these steps were not large; no one entity "invented" death metal.

Aestheticism is making something "unique" that does not correspond to content. Novelty, decoration, product-oriented thinking.

Sepultura, Massacra and Necrovore are oft-forgotten contributors to the genre.

How petty... Well, that makes you a African-American.


I am a Congoid. And 1/3 Jew.

Trolls succeed if they're answered. If you think he's a troll... REPLY TO ANOTHER THREAD! (You can trust me on this; I'm a troll, from hell)

The topic is provocative, but kind of bores me. There's no difference between mainstream and underground, and I pick by quality, and am fond of older Emperor and Averse Sefira.

Your mileage may vary - a friend who is HIV+ says that only Judas Iscariot sounds good to him these days.

If it wasn't for us whites, those African-Americans wouldn't have even had guitars or durms, just bongos and coconuts.


Historically, not true. Stringed instruments and woodwinds of a fashion also existed.

Then why do people say that blues came from the black slaves?


Pity.

And marketing.

I don't know him personally.

In the past, he has seemed to have a sense of humor.

Most people in faux Nationalism (like "White Nationalism" or "Republicanism") take themselves too seriously.

If that disease has infected him, I'm sorry to hear it. But I can imagine people get intolerant just dealing with heap-of-shit sites like MySpace (mainly sucks because the scripts don't work most of the time!).

Any 5.1 system will be decent in sound, but a lot depends on room as well. Make sure your audio player has an equalizer!

Metal / Re: Growing out of Metal?
« on: December 26, 2005, 03:28:15 AM »
I see most people grow out of metal because the amateurish nature and simplicity of youth culture is no longer relevant. They no longer have 10-12 hours a week in which music is important.

And really, isn't youth culture embarrassing? All these people pandering to your tastes so they can make money. A whole lot of hype around music, so much that life in a larger sense is forgotten. As with television.

The best metal, one never grows out of... but it's fewer albums rather than more. Maybe 15 total.

You may be right, but then again, the more you cover, the easier it is to imitate the style, whereas avoiding covers may lead to finding out your own style of playing. That's what happened to me, at least. I've never covered a song, and I've only practiced a couple of riffs made by other people. A friend of mine taught me how to tune the guitar, and that's all.


Inspiring. Here's what I got from it:

1. What matters most is not method, but persistence.
2. Music is a language and you can learn it your own way, as long as you learn some completeness of its usage.

This is not a judgement of the aural ability of intelligent metal listeners, but an acnowledgement of a lack of familiarity which will take time to surmount.


I think metal listeners should be forced to make this leap, or drummed out of the genre into punk rock.

Raise standards, always. Never lower.

They work well together, as a complete listening experience.

there are so many definitive metal albums.


Not really. You're looking for the best of the genre that is also archetypal:

http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/archetypal

"1 : the original pattern or model of which all things of the same type are representations or copies : PROTOTYPE; also : a perfect example
2 : IDEA 1a
3 : an inherited idea or mode of thought in the psychology of C. G. Jung that is derived from the experience of the race and is present in the unconscious of the individual"
