From another thread:

Most of the original romanticist writers referenced occultism and fantasy as much as anything else. The most recent generations in Europe have tended toward naturalism, but as that becomes hackneyed, different permutations are emerging.

Arguably, Tolkien is a romanticist, although it's hard to pick out the literature from the (poorly edited) fantasy writing.

Metal / Crimson Massacre - The Luster of Pandemonium
« on: June 23, 2005, 10:34:56 PM »

"Crimson Massacre's music is a marriage of the avant-technicality of Acerbus, the flowing melodic textures of At The Gates, and the musical structuring of Bach."

I fucking hate whoever came up with the word "ideology" for this topic, it should be "mindset" or "spirit" or something.


For one to have an ideology, one must be an ideologue.

Most are not ideologues, but are motivated by self-interest, thus their "ideology" is better termed as "self-image"

perhaps we should start an international network of secondhand cd buying and mailing to each other.


A few thoughts:

1) I wanted to start a metal collective for this reason. No metalheads could get their shit together - big surprise.

2) Sharing the MP3s is a good start. The hub is the best place, as it's not just a metal fetus central; there's classical, ambient, folk etc.

3) Nothing wrong with CD trading.

4) Also remember to send any rare, OOP recordings in dub form to:

Metal / Immolation
« on: June 23, 2005, 06:59:04 PM »
The last of the old school... and continuing. If they have a fault, perhaps, it's trying too hard to be current and not enough of the guitary/compositional mystery magic seen on the second album. Yet still strong: one of the few death metal bands left that delivers an impressive presence alongside music for the brain.

Excellent fansite with complete information:
http://www.everlastingfire.com/

"What’s kept Immolation going all these years?We love what we do, plain and simple. It hasn’t been the easiest road to travel down and for almost 18 years... sometimes I think we certainly must be nuts, but then there is nothing else I would rather be doing. That includes every aspect of what we do, from writing, to recording, to rehearsing, to touring and traveling and meeting people all over the world. I stop and think about how fortunate we are to still be doing this and to still really enjoy it and that’s all that matters in the end."

How does this stack up? Pickups sound good, feels great under the hands. Any opinions?

Metal / Project: Burzspam
« on: June 20, 2005, 11:23:53 PM »
Major news agencies usually have "music" sites where you can select through the artists they think you should hear. Naturally, almost none of these include Burzum, and they'd be horrified to include it.

Example:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/

From this comes an idea.

Theory: They are collecting data to see what people are willing to buy, as well as trying to shove it down our throats.

1. Collect list of major music sites with search blanks
2. Create script to search repetitively for variations on 'Burzum' and 'Ildjarn;
3. Have fifty or more dedicated Hessians apply themselves to this task.

Consequences: we may never know, but it's possible they will at least experience great consternation and make hilarious public statements about evil black metal. At best case scenario, they'll start selling Burzum via mainstream record sites, which is no loss as black metal is already dead, so we might as well market what could positively influence the hordes.

Metal / Re: The Atheist reissues are finally coming!
« on: June 20, 2005, 06:50:33 PM »
Let's tighten that up a bit..

Relapse Records has announced the forthcoming reissue of the entire recorded works of seminal technical metal pioneers ATHEIST, starting with a limited edition, foil-stamped box set containing LP versions of each of the ATHEIST full-lengths, as well as the R.A.V.A.G.E. (pre-ATHEIST) "On They Slay" 7" EP exclusive to this edition. The LP box will be strictly limited to 1,000 copies and surface in July. The CD re-issues will follow in the late summer/early fall, starting with "Elements" on August 30 (U.S.) and September 5 (Europe).

Metal / Black metal as art
« on: June 20, 2005, 03:27:55 AM »



http://www.artchive.com/artchive/F/friedrich.html

Here is an article about the artist I think the way it describes him his beliefs styles etc basically sum up black metal e.g. his love of the pagan in nature, the darkness in his paintings, the passion involved, the mysteriousness, etc..

Romantic artist named Caspar David Friedrich painted this, I think it very much fits the style of black meta although possibly second two are not really dark enough for black metall, also read this quotation about the artist:

Though snow was first popular in European landscapes with those of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries from the Lowlands, Friedrich saw it in a new light, close to silent death or miraculous rebirth - never as a rococo confectioner's seasonal sugaring.

Metal / Hessian-friendly businesses
« on: June 19, 2005, 10:42:01 PM »
We've set up a list of businesses that treat Hessians well or cater to Hessians (metalheads; headbangers; threshers; heshers; thrashers). We would like to keep adding to this list to reward those businesses that treat metalheads well. Please send name of business, address, and phone/email/web if applicable to prozak (at) anus.com.

Here's the list:

Metal / Culture = enemy
« on: June 18, 2005, 03:41:37 PM »
East of the LIRR's Sunnyside yard, underneath the No. 7 elevated line, on a forlorn stretch of Queens Boulevard, smack between the Getty gas station and the Love Shack porn shop, there's this new basement venue called the Metal Kingdom. Co-proprietor Edwin also plays bass in Gnosis—the openers for the Kingdom's inaugural evening. The outfit—one of four featured bands whose members hail from Latin America—plays neo-Incan/ Mayan/Aztec "tribal" metal: pan flutes, conch shells, and sludge guitars, with Pan-American, indigenous themes.

Globalized metal's not new. For decades, extreme metal disciples have honed their craft worldwide, a loose network with all the attendant subgenres (black metal, death metal, grindcore, and on and on). But the Metal Kingdom's majority-Latino metal crowd on American soil is an indication of just how much the demographics have shifted stateside. And metal is still one of the musics of working-class youth. Many Mexican and South and Central American kids particularly relate to its explicitly anti-Christian, anti-authoritarian themes. It's quite a sight, seeing outer-borough white ethnics throwing up the devil horn salute, headbanging alongside their
compańeros from all points south.

Gnosis were the most melodic, the most musical of the bands—in this scene that can be taken as a compliment or an insult. Less concerned with melody was Mexico's Discordia, with skinned-cow-head stage props and an impish, gurgling, hissing fiend of a singer.

The language barrier between the various acts and the crowd didn't matter—this is meta(l)-language; it's all spoken in tongues anyway. Take Bloodthrone, purveyors of—"waiter, there's a fly in my Genesis P-Orridge!"—American black war destruction blasphemy metal. These Jersey grind-toughs got props from the Latin kids, and vice versa. One big, blurred, meth-ill, metal-kill, spiked-armband, bullet-belted, moanin' wail.

These Jersey grind-toughs got props from the Latin kids, and vice versa. One big, blurred, meth-ill, metal-kill, spiked-armband, bullet-belted, moanin' wail. It was a -heartening- confluence, considering how elements of the "black metal" scene flirt with some real odious ideologies, like "Odinism."

There we were, a writhing, polyglot mass, sweating to the strobe lights in that hellfire-hot basement. But this ain't no disco inferno. Them's sacrificial fires burning. And if you peer closely enough through the smoke, you just might be able to make out the smoldering embers of the past.
