Zine is not dead.

Will be emerging soon. Our staff struggles with full-time jobs, failing volunteers, and of course, quality control.

I think this one will blow some minds.

Post-1995 black metal is as distinct as pre-1995, in that the "After" picture contains 3-5 good bands and the rest are shit.

NSBM arose almost entirely post-1995, and I see no point remembering it. Early Absurd is great, so is Graveland, so is Burzum, so is Darkthrone, but I'm never going to give a shit about soundalike NSBM from America and Russia. What is this, a cold war redux? "We're sorry we hated on Germany?"

Metal / Re: Definitive metal albums
« on: August 24, 2005, 01:57:30 AM »
I'm not saying these albums are "the best of the best", but I think they are pretty definitive of their genres. I also took into consideration the bands that will be remembered in history.

Definitive to me means "archetypal," or exemplary of what the genre was about, not necessarily a best of or list every album of.

I'd like to do a list for outsiders: how to understand metal music through its definitive acts.

Heavy Metal
Judas Priest - Painkiller
Iron Maiden - Killers
Mercyful Fate - Don't Break the Oath
Motorhead - On Parole

Speed Metal
Metallica - Master of Puppets
Prong - Beg to Differ

DRI - Dealing With It
Cryptic Slaughter - Money Talks
Dead Horse - Horsecore
COC - Six Songs, etc.

Sodom - Persecution Mania
Kreator - Endless  Pain
Destruction - fuck, I forget the title ;)
Rigor Mortis - Rigor Mortis
Slayer - Reign in Blood
Pestilence - Malleus Malificarum

Death Metal
Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness
Deicide - Legion
Obituary - Cause of Death
Amorphis - The Karelian Isthmus
Therion - Beyond Sanctorum
Massacra - Final Holocaust

Black Metal
Immortal - Diabolical Full Moon Mysticism
Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse
Enslaved - Vikinglgr Veldi
Gorgoroth - Antichrist
Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

I hate it when people call them "thrash." It's like calling the English heterosexual.

Infoterror (Steve Rogers) review appearing on Amazon.com shortly:


Introduction for outsiders to skinheads, black metal, straight edge and zealot culture, August 24, 2005
Reviewer: infoterror "chaos" (new york city)

This movie is not a teenage celebration of these genres, but an attempt to explain why they came about, namely what they think is wrong with society and how they hope to fix it. Its strengths are its structure and clarity; its weakness is the tedious nature of most people and subgenres. The Christians come out looking the best, with the black metallers following. I like (some) black metal, (some) hardcore and am not a Christian except in the Schopenhauerian sense of spiritual "quietude," however, I was impressed with the filmmaking and topic study of the independent underground documentary.

Metal / Paul Ledney website

Congratulations, you have reached the personal web page of Paul Ledney. Master of Adobe Photoshop, "The leading tool for photo manipulation and web design." In a lot of ways this page is long overdue. After Traveling around, and teaching private lessons, classes and seminars I finally decided to sit down and put up a site. I wanted this site to be very different from other pages by showing what Photoshop is cabable of doing, and how it works in conjunction with other programs such as Illustrator, Corel Draw and Corel Xara. You wont see 10,000 jpeg images here but there is a small gallery below. As many books as I pick up on Photoshop I still find myself going through all of the tutorials in each book. Its good to keep going over the lessons on a picture weather it be a scan or just a plain old stock photo from a CD. One of the main Problem designers face today is that they know what they want the piece to look like but they just cant seem to get the point across. What's the problem? They know what they want the piece to look like but they don't have the attributes to support it. Hopefully After doing some of the lessons listed here Your Attributes will improve 100%. These pages will be updated frequently so bookmark this page and keep your eyes out for great tips and tricks. I'm also going to conduct interviews with other Photoshop masters, and you'll be able to see their work, and how they all approach This Program differently.

Burzum's one of the top five metal bands ever, by musical quality. It's also one of the few artist worth studying for ideas outside of the music.

I'll tell you a secret (which turns to a non-secret now). We may have a gig in the USA (East coast) in May. Nothing's sure, yet, but I'm trying to make it happen and it's close to happening.

If we get there, and somebody (or a group of people) has enough money to get us to TX, we'd be ready to play there, too.

This has potential. Three band members, going from NY to Texas, is going to be a minimum of $1000 if by plane, not including food and hotel and other things death metal bands need, like enemas, ripe bananas and blow-up dolls.

It would be very cool however, and I think a Texas show (preferrably in Houston, the largest city) would pay for itself. That leaves you only two days from California as well...

I volunteer to drive the van, and I'll do what I can to find money. I think the real answer is to get some shows happening...

Might be wise to print some "merch" in the USA in advance of your arrival?
