Metal / Feb 16 - Minneapolis, MN Congregation
« on: February 01, 2008, 10:42:32 PM »
CORRUPT/ANUS affiliate meetup opportunity:
ROTTING CHRIST, AVERSE SEFIRA, IMMOLATION, BELPHEGOR et al
Saturday, February 16, 2008
7th Street Entry
Minneapolis, MN

This is an almost unprecendented chance to see at least three metal bands of relevance/historical importance on a single tour in a close-quarters venue. Inspired in part by other, similar local events, it also seems a good place to catch a few like-minded people for some confrontation/conversation (even if only incidentally).

I know there are a few souls lurking who are from the area, and I personally have friends from around the metro and continent who have pledged to join me for this, as well.

Nothing solid at this time, but if you are intrigued and will be attending the show, PM me so I know who to contact if the interest is sufficient to make something more official happen.

This is the original Breath of Night recording, which is a completely different (and superior) studio recording from the one featured on the re-issue on Deathgasm.  The BLACK RAIN demo included as bonus on the CD HAS NOT been included in the above archive.

Metal / Forgotten Bands
« on: November 07, 2007, 01:31:21 AM »
Quote
Utumno didn't conform to the archetypal Swedish sound; they were their own entity. To me, they are second only to Morpheus Descends, as far as amazing death metal bands unknown to the majority go.


To start, I hope none of the below is construed as anything but gentle musing about the above for the purposes of discussion.

That said, I respectfully disagree with the assertion that UTUMNO were somehow original; far from it, I think they are about as derivative of the prevailing aesthetic and musical approach of their time as one possibly could be.

As someone who has done a lot of tape trading and seeking out of obscure acts, I find there are a lot of older bands who get a similar treatment to what UTUMNO gets above.  The reasons behind the praise, as might be suggested by the quote, waver between admiration for archetype and identity.

Those who praise of archetype are generally of the old guard; people who are hardened to metal beyond what they ended up finding comfortable at some point down the line.  You find most of these people in praise of the "classic" stuff of the UTUMNO vein, though the breadth of their praise is far narrower than the above, and usually limited to some genre reference plus a vague identifier: "totally classic Swedish death metal, but heavier/more melodic/faster."  These people serve the function of keeping alive an informal archive available to the rest of us, but for the sake of finding anything really worth hearing they are unreliable at best.

Those in search of "identity," excluding those of the novelty-seeking crowd, are more to the tune of many of the visitors of this site.  Despite the derivation of, or similarity to, something from its surroundings, we seek those bands who would transcend their surroundings.  The past recognization and weighted praise for bands who have helped forge archetypes, and thus simultaneously overcome them, becomes so intrinsic to the nature of our discernment that we attempt to imbibe acts not necessarily deserving of such high praise for historical or musical reasons with it anyway as a means to justify our own tastes.  A lot of it is conditioned by the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a certain band.  If the band was stumbled upon many years after their heyday, so much the worse for judgment's sake.

After some time, the search for older bands is a disappointing one.  Most forgotten, older bands are cool for the reason the lovers of archetype love them; trapped in their zeitgeist, fun to listen to here and there but little worthy of greater praise. Few that have yet to be celebrated are interesting as metal in the way anyone interested in metal as a "whole" might find them.  Either way, the Messianic hope for metal as a function of things unknown or yet undiscovered is not likely to produce anything by itself.  Better to praise what we find enduring than to stash our hope in places yet unknown.

Metal / ATG - Red in the Sky Concept
« on: October 10, 2007, 10:42:08 PM »
A user culled this snippet of previous conversation from the depths of Audiofile, which is worth exploring here:

Quote
Has anyone picked up on the narrative nature of AtG's debut as a whole album? It seems to contain some sort of chronologic sequence. The track names lead me to believe something about the downfall of a kingdom and the pain this caused.


Quote
I remembering noticing the same thing in TRITSIO years ago.


From a cursory review of the lyrics after reading these thoughts originally, I gathered that it does seem to be a concept-narrative about the fall of a kindgom; specifically, it seems to be of the falling kingdom of "God"/etc. for which the band views themselves or perhaps death metal as a whole as part responsible.  There are a lot of references in this vein in the first few tracks alone, almost always in the plural:

Revolution - the red in the sky is ours
The twilight is ours


Absolute Spirit, we revolt against thee
We are the serpent gods, Wall spawned from you


Inverted we've lived our lives
From our death to our birth
Now the liers are awakening
We are the children of "God's" curse


These two stanzas from the track "Windows" are what convinced me the whole album reads as I have described it here:

A lunatic music, the end of flock kingdom
Sheep, you thirst for our insanity

Windows, sharp, cold
Wrap your psyche in blankets of pain
No more light of day
We're the windows to your insanity


Death metal bringing the end, showing everyone else the madness of which they are part.  There are other themes, too, but most are close in perspective and still provide cohesion for the lyrics to read as well as the album itself sounds as an experience, front-to-back.

Inspiring, no?

Metal / Metal is Self-Defeat
« on: June 24, 2007, 08:44:57 PM »
I culled this from another forum:

Quote
The problem with Metal is the same fundamental problem underlying every form of modern culture. Art is no more the product of a fulfilled soul, pulsating with that kind of vitality that comes from within, and which can only come from that certainty of being truly planted in reality -- a simple organism fully integrated in a higher order transcending ego and confusion. Only that state of spirit could create, as it did in previous ages, works of art that, despite having many indivual sources, possessed a common cultural fingeprint that represented the purest affirmation. Modern culture is not like this; it is irrealistic, disloged, with the tattered phantom of an ego battling eternally with reality. And in the occasion when it somehow finds something intangible, something that feels superior and real, it ultimately fails to transform it in something that is eternal, meeting a dead end as soon as the climax wears out, and thus isn't capable of making that final leap into existence, as happened with the culture of our previous ages.

The history of Metal speaks of this tragedy; it found something superior; it was powerful enough to pierce through the veil of decadence and illusion of our era and even to discover the forgotten values of the past in their rawest, most primitive state. Listening to Immortal's Pure Holocaust, old-era Bathory, Burzum, Immolation, etc. gave me a glimpse of something prodigious and awe-inspiring, and the sheer power of their music was like assisting to the triumphant invasion of a decadent empire by a raging horde of barbarians. Knowing of the terminal state of our society, what could be more wonderful than this infusion of spirit and vitality? Metal is not sophisticated(even being infinitely more complex than most popular music), but it isn't supposed to be, anyway; it had that specific intangible quality, a romanticism fuelled by infinity fury, a nihilism that wasn't self-destructive but assertive, processing every human weakness and excess into a compost of purified energy. It seemed like the solution to everything, or so I thought until recently, when it dawned upon me that Metal was basically another dead end, just like so many others in the past 200 years.

When I heard erudite musicians and Classical listeners frowning upon Metal I though that they just "didn't understand", but the fact is that: they're right. Metal can muster the primeval impulse, but it can't make anything of it that goes beyond itself. While Classical was a construction of centuries by a healthy culture that, with every block added to it, impregnated it with the soul of of life and history, as a transfiguration of metaphysical energy, Metal turned out be like an imposing Greek statue made of junkyard paraphernalia. Screaming(or growling), distortion, percussive dependance, are just external aspects that provide us with the evidence that Metal can never have eternal value; anger, euphoria, even that youthful romanticism -- for what is romanticism other than the final wail of a mortally wounded animal? Think of Wagnerism, Futurism, the Fascist movements(especially NS); what could have they done to resist the poison that was corrupting their bodies from the onset? -- are other such evidence. Metal is self-defeat, if we stay loyal to it longer than we should. For those who could understand, it already gave us what it had of important, and now it's time to move on; for the others it was just another rumour.


Although much of the above is accurate, there seems to be a disconnect in the argument: metal is described first as capable of rediscovering the essences of lost values, but at the same time as unable to go beyond itself.

That metal is a modern phenomenon can't be disputed, but this fact alone isn't enough to level it.  Nietzsche is also "modern" - his philosophy is not the product of a "fulfilled soul" - but we manage to learn from him nonetheless.  So it is with Beehtoven, as well.  Especially in the case of where things are capable of harkening to values of significance, it seems short-sighted to discount them simply because they reflect their surroundings.  Nothing, including "classical" music reaches the purity of art described by the poster in this day-and-age; clearly, though, some things come much closer than others.

Metal is a self-defeating dead end when taken on its own accord with no regard for its ability to express transcendent ideas - ideas which the quoted poster himself seems to recognize with accuracy.  Certainly matters of age and personal taste will effect listening habits, but characterizing metal "loyalty" as self-defeat (in what arena? to what end?) seems unnecessarily broad.  If what is meant is metal as an all-encompassing solution, then he is probably right, but if metal seems destined to "failure," it is only in the sense that everything is until the end of this era.

Metal / Metalheads and Media
« on: June 22, 2007, 12:25:21 AM »
Over time, and increasingly so, I fail to understand why so many metalheads are attracted to popular media, particularly things like movies and television and their accessories (corporate sports, etc).  It's obvious to me that the drones would find solace in those pleasures like everybody else, but even people who claim to be beyond the "just music" crowd - typically the psuedo-elites of the "underground" troupe, but others as well - find no contradiction in being explicit and discerning about metal taste but having no particular hang-ups about information or "entertainment" in other forms, as if these are all simply choices to be made among many, and mixing and matching is part of the game.  

If anything reinforces metal as a stupid, consumerist lifestyle accessory, this is it.  Presenting oneself as beyond or outside these things might be an easy active way to combat these prejudices.

Metal / Man Gets Sick Benefits for Heavy Metal Addiction
« on: June 20, 2007, 01:27:09 PM »
Man gets sick benefits for heavy metal addiction

A Swedish heavy metal fan has had his musical preferences officially classified as a disability. The results of a psychological analysis enable the metal lover to supplement his income with state benefits.

Roger Tullgren, 42, from Hässleholm in southern Sweden has just started working part time as a dishwasher at a local restaurant.

Because heavy metal dominates so many aspects of his life, the Employment Service has agreed to pay part of Tullgren's salary. His new boss meanwhile has given him a special dispensation to play loud music at work.

"I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap," Tullgren told The Local.

Metal / Swedish Death Metal - The Book
« on: January 18, 2007, 03:52:43 PM »
Looks like fun:

http://www.myspace.com/tamarapress

SWEDISH DEATH METAL - THE BOOK WILL BE RELEASED ON JANUARY 23rd!!! - And it will be in English so all of you can read it -   In the mid-80's a small underground movement in Sweden started to emerge from small towns and suburbs. A handful of restless teenagers started to search for the most extreme music available, and a tape trading community began to grow. Eventually the teenagers picked up instruments themselves, and created what in a few years would dominate the world of extreme music - Swedish Death Metal. This is the improbable history of how it all began and evolved into the early 90's.   The book also includes a massive A-Z of Swedish Death Metal bands (about 900 entries) as well as fanzines. All in all the book is 500 pages long, and contains over 500 cool pictures. About 30 central characters of the scene have been interviewed, and some of their anecdotes are as wild as the music ever was. Still, the main focus of this research is the music. After all, the fantastic music is the greatest achievement of the Swedish Death Metal movement.  I hope you will enjoy the ride!

Their finest album.  Sinister Polish death metal with MORBID ANGEL influence - less speed metal-influenced and darker than the music of countrymen VADER.  BEHEMOTH members (from before the time they tried their hand at generic turn-of-the-millennium death metal).

Metal / Bolt Thrower - Epic Death Metal
« on: October 31, 2006, 10:47:09 PM »
Quote
Downloading For Victory, any other recommendations?

Briefly:
"In Battle..." and "Realm of Chaos" are by far the most grind and punk influenced of the lot.  The melody stays brief and the songs explosive.

"Warmaster" is a bit transitional; clearly more death metal influenced, the speed and atonal punkish bursts give way to more developed melody and subtlety in riff construction.  Surprisingly melodic.

"IVth Crusade" is probably the most archetypal thing they've done.  The rhythms are almost martial in their constant, rumbling meter, and they've begun to explore the use of harmony in more epic contexts.

"...For Victory" takes all the developments of the "IVth Crusade" and expounds upon them to near perfection.  In my opinion, their modern classic.  Explosive and flowing simultaneously, with fantastic character and perfect riff control.

Everything that follows is consistent, but moulded to their archetype so rigidly as to be almost parody.  There are even instances where lyrical lines are repeated, probably inadvertently, from earlier albums.
