Metal / Philosopher says heavy metal is fascism
« on: July 01, 2005, 05:41:09 PM »
 The purpose of the Fascist formula, the ritual discipline, the uniforms, and the whole apparatus, which is at first sight irrational, is to allow mimetic behavior. The carefully thought out symbols (which are proper to every counterrevolutionary movement), the skulls and disguises, the barbaric drum beats, the monotonous repetition of words and gestures, are simply the organized imitation of magic practices. . . .
 --Horkheimer & Adorno, Dialectic of Enlightenment 184-85

Metal, indeed, might be viewed as the epitome of popular music's two most extreme dangers: a dehumanizing, de-individualizing techno-mechanization; and a mystifying, irrationalist "retreat" (however illusory) back to humankind's primordial "rhythmic" origins--to speak diachronically about a tension between myth and reason that Horkheimer and Adorno often deal with in a more synchronic fashion. And yet, with the hegemonic ascendancy of industrial capitalism, the twentieth century seems to represent a new "culture-shock" turn-for-the-worse in Adorno's exposition of his ongoing rational/mythic dialectic. When the rationalist in Adorno must speak of a century cursed by Hitler and Auschwitz, it is only understandable that The Dialectic of Enlightenment has, at these points, a very "dystopian" feel to it (Hohendahl 126), and that Adorno's intellectual angst and pessimism are readily transferred from the jackboot to the jitterbugger, from the martial frenzy of the Fascist collective to the fanaticism of the pop-music audience.


Metal / Black Metal Art
« on: June 30, 2005, 02:04:19 PM »
Whitney Museum of American Art
May 27-October 2, 2005

The Whitney has commissioned Banks Violette, whose work was featured in the 2004 Biennial, to create a new project for his first single-artist museum exhibition. The work, a multi-media sculptural installation with a sound component, re-imagines the romantic sublime via narratives drawn from popular culture. The sound component is a piece of music written by Snorre Ruch, part of an insular music subculture called Black Metal, whose ethos embraced nihilism, theatrical morbidity, aggression and violence. The central sculptural component evokes a minimalist representation of the ruined skeleton of a church, a reference to the romantic iconography of such painters as Caspar David Friedrich and to an image drawn from a Black Metal album cover. Cast in salt, the ghost-like church skeleton, a familiar image of romantic decay, is reinvested with meaning both through the formal seduction of the piece and the viewer’s interaction with it in the space.

Funny... when they came to Mexico i worked as a roadie for them and they were pretty cool...

Pro-Aryan activism does not necessarily involve enmity toward other ethnic groups.

read the lyrics to 'tyrants of the damned'

Therion - Tyrants Of The Damned lyrics

Dark age, war
Veils of death
Tyrants of the damned
No meaning we saw
Believers of war
They had thirsts of gore
A third reich
Built by bricks of hate
Soon to fall
Just like their fates
Distortions of their minds
Sick believes
To raise the arian race
Thoughts of hate
A nazi mode of thoughts
The scums are dead
And we don't see their reich
No meaning we saw
With this big war
A power of hate
That mankind creates

DM: My son (Justis) plays guitar in the band at the school he goes to. He goes to a Christian Academy and he plays in the worship band there. Which, go figure, Dave Mustaine's kid's playing worship songs! Which I'm very thrilled about, because when he was born, all I wanted was him to be able to know God's word, and be a black belt in the martial arts style that I've been training in, so he could take care of himself and if he's meant to die that he would go to Heaven.


He also offered less cretinous advice:

"Whatever it is that you learn how to play, learn how to play it slowly first because then your motor skills will grasp it. "

Feldgrau - Mechanized Misanthropy

One of the few awake mental acts in metal of late, Feldgrau "Mechanized Misanthropy" is a cross between doomish black metal and ambient industrial music from former Angelcorpse members. Surprisingly, it has a far greater range of mood and dimension than Angelcorpse, and seems one of the brighter lights in an increasingly dark, repetitive, and low-brow stupid metal genre of late.

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.
