Metal / Re: Literature: post reviews of your favorite book
« on: December 18, 2005, 07:10:31 PM »
Most metal book ever:
"Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad

Are you an antisocial metalhead? This book explains how society, by fleeing what it fears, creates its own darkness and parasitizes itself. KVLT!

I think it's fair to link the genre pages from anus.com on any metal-related article that's relevant (death, black metal). We're the oldest metal site on the net and one of the most popular, by statistics. What could they (rationally) have against us?

Metal / Re: what is still underground these days

There is no underground.

"Underground" existed when there were only mainstream labels.

Now anything can get published, and the problem isn't aboveground/underground but that the quality stuff gets drowned out.

Fuck the Underground... it serves no purpose, and destroys a lot of good things.

i would say grindcore partly


Any music that's too hard for the crowd to grasp.

Thus, Beethoven and Demilich, for starters.

Gents,

This topic went from a neat thought into idiotic bickering. This is why often it's better not to reply to fools, but to start a counter-fool movement else.

Cthonian, I'm not necessarily calling you a fool; I'm speaking to the first reaction perspective of those who read your work. In fact, I'm not commenting on anyone in this thread except to say that it became compost fodder.

Comment about Slayer is good also.

Metal / Hail Quorthon & other leaders
« on: December 10, 2005, 04:13:23 PM »
Really, it is kind of embarrassing that we can complain about the obvious wastes of oxygen - Brujeria, Cradle of Filth, Cannibal Corpse and Pantera - while not giving tribute to the masters.

Way back in 1983, Quorthon was one of the inventors of death/black metal. He had considerably fewer resources than others in this task, but contributed much of the technique and imagery of death and black metal to come. Almost all Norwegian black metal has the first two Bathory albums in its bloodline.

He also wrote the grandiloquent lyrics to "Twilight of the Gods."

He was the first metal musician in the black/death era to unabashedly claim influences from classical music, even while those around him referred to it as "fag music."

While the quality of Bathory releases varied, they were honest tries.

He was proof that black metal musicians aren't incompetent through his Beatles/REM-style folk hard rock albums.

His interviews were highly friggin' intelligent.

Quorthon is one of those few who can honestly use the word "innovative" to describe his work. It did not reinvent music, but found a new voice for a worldview that is eternally sensible.

Others:
Voivod
Demilich
Burzum
Immolation
Absurd

Cannibal Corpse = the most overrated band in DM.


Yep.

Pantera = most overrated band in Speed Metal

Dead Kennedys = most overrated band in Punk

Cradle of Filth = most overrated band in Black Metal

Wow, they've got more in common than I thought.

Hmm...

surely if DRI and COC are to described as Thrash Metal


They're not.

They're described as Thrash.

Thrash != metal

Thrash != punk

Thrash = Thrash
