Metal / Re: Averse Sefira - new website and album

Concert tonight, in Austin. If you're in North America, try to make it ;)

I've ordered items before via the band and they're highly reliable. The stuff I requested show up in a timely and friendly manner.

Metal / New Masochism song

Similar in style thus to older Incantation and Sinister, the essential form of this band stretches to include a plurality of influences, ranging from older speed and heavy metal to modern black metal styles, something which is absorbed by a deft understanding of how riffs fit together.

Metal / Styles of Heavy Metal

Somewhat of an interesting critique:

IM(V)HO there're some flaws in that graph.
0. (design flaw) annoying background music that can't be turned off.
1. No connection between classical and prog? No separate entry for prog metal (or is it something to frown upon?)
2. No connection between speed and thrash?
3. Bands listed under "thrash" are more hardcore-thrash than pure thrash. Some bands commonly referred to as classic thrash (e.g. Testament) are listed under Speed.
4. So many sub-genres of Death and Black, as if that's what matters most.
But that's all highly subjective, are all those points could as well be deliberate "features" rather than "flaws"


Of course, the topic was rapidly locked by detractors, so I ended up writing back to the one gent who did provide meaningful feedback:


thanks for the critique on the styles of heavy metal site. when i have a chance, i'll create a more aesthetically pleasing control for the embed tag so sound can stop looping.

"thrash" as we used it back in the day refers to what some call thrash-hardcore now, but it seems to be a mistake, since during the period in question hardcore wouldn't have 'em and metal wouldn't either. they were crossover, hence the separation of the genre.

i'll meditate on the others. i confess a weakness in that i'm biased toward black/death metal, and don't listen to much heavy metal. it doesn't necessarily mean much.

these would be in the topic, but it's locked, so since you took the time to give an analysis, i send them on to you.

Me too. This will be a legendary show.

Metal / Averse Sefira - new website and album
« on: April 03, 2005, 11:27:52 AM »

Movies, mp3 downloads, pictures, interviews, and chaos. New Averse Sefira site in preparation for their 2005 album, "Tetragrammatical Astygmata," on Evil Horde Records.

Metal / Eroded Thoughts: metal video trade
« on: March 29, 2005, 12:21:08 AM »
Eroded Thoughts is intended to be a repository of information regarding live and rehearsal Metal videos. It can be considered a reference guide for experienced video traders, or even a starting point for people that are interested in obtaining a video collection in the future. The site will cover all styles of Metal, but not index the reviews according to genre. Instead, all of the content will be alphabetized, making it much easier to maintain and update. To begin reading the reviews, simply click on one of the navigational options near the top of the page.

Dude! I cannot wait for Hvjutxhurgar's full length... is it still on Barbarian Wrath?

Metal / Bedroom black metal

Drawbridge is a one-man bedroom Black Metal project dedicated to making extremely shitty music. In the age of the internet, persona is everything and talent is nothing. So why shouldn't I try to validate my existence with minimal effort via a substanceless, space-taking waste of time?

"Useful" bickering tends to make a board stay active.

Is there a difference between debate and bickering?

Part of the reason this board exists is because the main board started, for awhile, to resemble back issues of Der Sturmer....

"Right" and "wrong" don't exist.

My perception is that we can either try to have a forum that is not filled with shit, or we can give up.

I address this as much to those who reply to some of the truly abysmal cases we've seen show up here recently as to those who bicker offtopic in threads.

It's not my board - it's the community's board. Time to decide what you want: shithole or function?

Here's an opinion I need: anyone familiar with Exhumer? I'm into super speedy black thrash with shreddy guitar solos.

Are you into a style, or into musical quality?

After 1993 for death metal, and after 1996 for black metal: there are probably five albums of each you should own, and the rest are mediocre.

E.g. don't waste your fucking time; listen to the older stuff, read a book and foment chaos.
