This band is a lot like Dismember, but more emphasis on bass notes and simultaneously, seemingly paradoxically, more subtlety.

In 1995, they still had some claim to relevance. I think that was before Therion's disastrous "Lepaca Kliffoth," and whatever disaster Napalm Death cranked out after F.E.D. Deicide was still on "Once Upon the Cross" and Celtic Frost was, admittedly, probably dead. The question was rhetorical. The point is that metal bands have finite lives. The longest-running non-selling-out band that doesn't suck would probably be Graveland or Sinister.

I think he means moral freedom, e.g. independence from crowd control.

Napalm Death had some good stuff. Both Bob Marley and Bad Brains recognized the need for independence of their people on an ethnic level. If a white person did that, they'd be a racist, so in interest of fairness we consider Bad Brains to be racist.

When I refer to Napalm Death as propaganda, I mean the recent whiny stuff, which is garbage both musically and lyrically. It was amusing watching Barney Greenway flee an idiotic message board confrontation with myself -- he did not like informed opposition, and wanted hordes of adoring kids to praise him for some vague statements about animal cruelty and "human rights." What an idiot.

Apparently, you do too.

Yeah, but there's not much surprising about that. I dunno; part of me always figures when Tom G Warrior needs a book, he goes to the cemetery to commune with the dead. But it's a small, childish part.

Maybe it needs to show up in the Audiofile section?

This site is down, and the demos need a permanent home.

Anyone want to upload?

I'd like to get them on a solid site like www.officialworldgonemad.com or www.vacarme.net

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.

All distros have sold out of this album again. Really fucked up my Christmas shopping!

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)
« on: January 04, 2006, 01:41:12 PM »
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!
