Metal / Re: Seeking opinions?

German thrash besides big three(destruction, kreator, sodom)? Also recommended albums for destruction and sodom?

Sodom - Persecution Mania

I do not recommend Kreator, and can only halfway recommend Destruction.

I would also seek Atrocity and Blood, however.

If at the "modern" university we have a Black Studies Department, and an Asian Studies Department, why not a Hessian Studies Department?


Metal / Definitive metal albums
« on: January 29, 2005, 07:30:30 PM »
In all of any genre, there's a few that really nail what it is to be that genre, and these tend to be known to history while others are footnotes. Another "list shit that you think impressed you" thread is NOT needed, so please don't do the typical Internet shithead thing and list fifteen obscure bands that make you sound cool, in your own world. Instead, think about the handful of bands that defined metal.

Death Metal
Morbid Angel - Blessed Are the Sick, Covenant
Deicide - Legion
Demilich - Nespithe
Incantation - Onward to Golgotha

Black Metal
Burzum - Filosofem, Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger
Immortal - Pure Holocaust
Enslaved - Vikinglgr Veldi

Speed Metal
Metallica - Master of Puppets
Slayer - Reign in Blood
Megadeth - Peace sells...

Metal / Glenn Snelwar: Gordian Knot guitarist
« on: January 21, 2005, 11:39:18 PM »
Torn Between Dimensions

At War With Self is the project name for an instrumental trio that was put together by guitarist/composer Glenn Snelwar. He is perhaps best known for his vital contributions to the first offering from Sean Malone's Gordian Knot project. At War With Self's debut release, Torn Between Dimensions, features Snelwar on guitars, mandolins and keyboards, Michael Manring on fretless bass and e-bow, and Mark Zonder on drums and percussion. Mark Zonder's progressive drumming forms the backbone for Snelwar's guitars, mandolins and keyboards that intertwine with Michael Manring's expressive fretless bass lines and e-bow. The idea behind Torn Between Dimensions is to create compositions that have an intensity of emotion and incorporate a wide variety of influences. Derived from an equal passion for progressive rock and metal bands such as King Crimson, Voivod and Pink Floyd, classical composers such as Leo Brouwer, Bela Bartok and Heitor Villa Lobos, to such diverse influences as bluegrass and jazz, Torn Between Dimensions is the realization of how Glenn chooses to take these influences and combine them into something undeniably progressive and strikingly original. The end result is a dense wall of sound, where multiple genres are explored within each song, as one song flows seamlessly into the next.


The intent of my work is to create innovative, experimental compositions using classical, electric guitars, mandolin, various percussion, piano and string sections, that encompass many influences and genres.

Metal made me a eugenicist when I saw how different the new fans were from the older ones. Yes, there have always been stupid people in metal - hordes of 'em. But there was once a leadership caste as well, and now it's mostly gone.

I think it's something great. Averse Sefira are one of the few bands upholding the black metal tradition; I think Vex has promise in its future.

I'll be skipping "Hammer Whore" purely because of the idiotic name, but that isn't a moral judgment; it's an aesthetic one.

Much better than anything the normal AIDS-infested Austin scene, with its queens like Vesperian Sorrow and hippie liberal punk bands, will achieve.

Good work!

Metal / Metal Documentary Filming in Houston
« on: January 18, 2005, 12:29:03 AM »
I am producing a documentary on metal and hardcore music. My camera
crew and I will be touring the country most of the spring and summer.
We will be in Houston on April 15th and 16th. We are looking for
local sponsors to be involved so that we do not have to have a big
corporate sponsor.

The filming will be at the Engine Room on the 15th and the Rhythm
Room on the 16th. The documentary will consist of live footage, interviews
with bands, promoters, and fans in the Houston area.

The documentary will be released nationwide on DVD format in the
fall of 05. It will be sold as three separate DVD’s divided by region
or as a three DVD set.

Each sponsor will have their logo on every official Mancuso Production’s
poster and handbill. Every sponsor will have a 30 second commercial
tied into their city’s section of the documentary. The commercial
will be shot by our camera crew so that it blends into the rest of
the documentary. Sponsors will have the option to be interviewed
on the documentary to explain how they have contributed to the local
metal scene. Finally, you will be allowed to have a booth at the
filming to pass out promotional material for your company and banners
are more than welcome.

If you are interested in being a sponsor of the show and being a
part of the documentary please contact me in one of the following

Have you guys heard the spring of recovery EP? great stuff.

What's it like?

"Pure Blood Doom" is underrated, but also not very grabbing-by-the-throat obvious like most metal.

I agree somewhat with both posts.

First, in my view, most metal like most rock is transient garbage; once you're more acquainted with the world and the world of ideas, there's less that's stimulating about, say, early Death, and you might in fact start considering it inferior.

However, some metal is eternal in that it transcends metaldom; it's simply a good example of popular music, regardless of genre. Yes, I'm thinking of Burzum and Immortal here, Demilich and Deicide, Morbid Angel and Judas Priest. These one can probably listen to very late into life.

That being said, most metalheads move on at some point because they're sick of being metalheads. They may keep that stack of CDs that had the most meaning, and pitch the rest. This isn't a bad thing. Selectivity in metal would be a gift from the gods.

At first listen, their most self-confident effort in years. Any other thoughts?

It's on the hub, user "neoclassical."

If I owned a store, I'd play this instead of Christmas music and profit from people fleeing the schmaltz.
