Aesthetics change, but only true aesthetics last forever.


Yes, content is what matters. Simplicity and messiness aside (including musical ineptitude), black metal is essentially European Romanticist movement. That as a concept determines a range of content topics, and a range of aesthetics, but ultimately, it is the philosophy behind the music and its topics that makes it what it is.

And that is eternal... insofar as anything is.

Have either of you heard the latest Luciferion album (The Apostate)? If so, what do you think?


I did not think it was good as the first, which mostly is of note for doing a melodic metal take on Deicide.

i'd rather use a les paul for a warm clean sound.


Agreed. Sometimes, Les Pauls make power chords seem less harmonically thin - resonance?

I like B.C. Rich guitars OK; I like almost everything from Gibson including the SG; I like most of what Ibanez puts out and most Jackson guitars. I haven't yet played a Fender I didn't think was cheesy, as a Chevrolet is to a Mercedes.

But for shitty, cheesy genres like the blues, they probably have the most "character"!

"Ritual of Infinity" needs a quality remaster and possibly addition of selected tracks from the EPs. I don't know if their style is relevant now, and I don't trust them to re-invent themselves.

Nu-Death =

Variant A: melodic heavy metal + death/black vocals.

Variant B: metalcore with emo elements, hybridized with percussive death metal.

Both are HIV+ in artistic senses.

Their first album and live EP/LP are good; the rest, honestly, is forgettable.

When I was young Thrash Metal was Dark Angel, Exodus, Slayer, Kreator, Destruction, Vio-lence, Sodom etc.


Most people called Slayer "black metal" back then, too!

Yes, it's a continuing series of thoughts.

And agreed, metal has been in decline for some time. 15 years? Well, that's about when speed metal died - 1990ish.

Death metal had its day - 1985-1993.

Black metal had its day - 1990-1995.

Thrash had its day - 1983-1986.

To me, it seems like we should purge the non-meaningful so that there is a total void into which meaning is encouraged to grow. Nature abhors a vacuum, and while there's a vacuum of quality in metal now, there's no vacuum of shit filling it, and it's that shit that prevents better things from rising.

...it was an improvement after "Domination," but "Far Beyond Heretic" was a terrible reversion to the same dung-minded outlook.

Cynic = seems very influenced by Kong ("Phlegm" and before).

Chuck + Death = the most obvious interpretation of death metal, thus overpopular. Musical contributions not covered by Possessed and Asphyx: zero.

Probably Slayer and Bathory should be reversed :)

Metal / Re: Doom Metal and its presence in BM and Death Me
« on: December 26, 2005, 02:51:02 AM »
I'm not really sure doom metal ever had much to offer. The genre is steeped in self-pity and self-drama. That's sort of what Britney Spears offers, and her music moves more quickly and is more musically schooled. Scientifically, why should I listen to doom metal when there's Britney Spears, all image considerations (that I look like a fag listening to Britney) aside?

"Thrash metal" is a nonsense term. Expands to "crossover punk-metal heavy metal" - means nothing.

Necrovore, Hellhammer, Possessed, Sepultura, Slayer, Massacra, Sodom and Bathory all had some degree of hybrid; the death/black styles are similar not only to each other but to the work of Discharge, which, coincidentally, came out in 1982. Neoclassical heavy metal + Discharge = death/black metal.

And really, who gives a fuck.
