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?

Metal / Re: Philosopher says heavy metal is fascism
« on: August 19, 2005, 03:52:41 PM »
The problem with fascism is that it's an administrative solution to a more complex problem. We need to do away with the notion of government as organizing our lives, and be far more rigorous about eugenics. The Nazis allowed someone who was 1/8 African or Inuit to live in Germany, and allowed many people who were fundamentally stupid to continue existing in society, ultimately dooming them. They needed to really reinvent society, go back to feudal times and kill all the scumbags and leeches among them by allowing dueling and open combat.

Of course, having sick nations like America and Russia around didn't help that. One capitalist, the other communist, but they were basically the same monster, and that's one that supports the rabble and not the smart few.

Metal / Re: Early Vader
« on: August 19, 2005, 03:46:46 PM »
Vader's demos are good. For those too young to remember, one of the reasons their demo sold so well is that it was one of the few (4) death metal bands active behind the Iron Curtain at that time.

Study Questions:

1. What was the Iron Curtain?

2. Where were Vader from?

3. What events after WWII might have shaped that country at the time?

Metal / Re: NSBM  [ FAIL ]

There's an easy way to deal with NSBM if you don't like it. Don't listen to it. It's here to stay until the Thought Police round everyone up.

I'm not worried about that. I think NSBM is an insult to both NS and BM. It's an easy bandwagon. Notice that the first Absurd album was genius, but their later stuff is crap. Political allegiance is coming before artistic and philosophical integrity. It's too easy to sign up and say "Yeah, I'm an NSBMer, too!" The original national socialism wasn't like this, because it wasn't an identity. I think this is why NS didn't do so well. It wasn't extreme enough. It didn't do enough to cull the white herds, it didn't do enough to discipline people's minds, and it didn't restore a traditional order. It was still too modern. I like John Milius' statement that he's a "Zen fascist." That about describes me, because I think that through conflict, we will be able to perpetrate the rudiments of eugenics on the population. However, there's still a lot of talented but retrograde people out there who need to be killed first.

NSBM now is a complete bandwagon. If you put the right symbols on your CDs, and say the right things, you're accepted even if the music is crap. Not surprisingly, all but a couple NSBM bands are total shit, and none of it (except Absurd, Graveland, Burzum) is on par with the original Nordic black metal explosion. If you hate NS, you should support NSBM, as that negative pointless and boring music reinforces public conceptions of NS as being for ludicrous idiots who cannot tell the difference between good music and crap. If you like NS, I'd surely get the fuck away from NSBM or "white power" music in general.

Personal opinion: Andreas Kisser is largely to blame for killing them creatively and turning them into a speed metal hybrid.

Their first two works are their only worthy contributions, with Bestial Devestation being the better of the two.

Basically, everything with Kisser is better left in the delete bin.

Freddy, I thought about this for some time today. See if this scenario fits your vision.

Band starting out is unsure of technical ability. When they finally got a real "legit" shredder lead guitarist, they embark on a course designed to make their music more technically adept.

With Arise, they nailed it. And suddenly -- there is a lack of new direction. At that point, one of the formative guys who was previously held in check by the mystic imagination of Wagner Antichrist, starts doing what he knows lots of people will like and makes leftist political music.

I like Morbid/Bestial and Beneath the Remains, with Arise a distant third. Their newer stuff is really moronic garbage.
