Metal / How not to spoil a follow-up album
« on: December 03, 2013, 02:41:56 AM »
Don’t worry about being creative, living up to a perceived expectation or breaking new ground, just make it harder, faster, darker and dirtier. Creativity can’t be summoned at will. And if fans are worth any consideration at all it should be to fucking smash them. I’m sorry but Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk-syndrome just shouldn't be an option.

Interzone / Kierkegaard on possibility.
« on: December 02, 2013, 02:10:22 AM »
If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of potential -- for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints; possibility never.

What is so sparkling, so fragrant, so intoxicating, as possibility!

What was or might have been helps one see what could be, something which is as appealing as that which is truly great. A transition that is like an incentive to keep trying as opposed to completion which has in it the finality of death. I hope I understand this right.

Interzone / If it really is me.
« on: November 10, 2013, 02:03:58 AM »
Is my body like a shelter I am staying in? or a vehicle I am travelling in?

If my thoughts are composed of a life’s worth of information I’ve been exposed to am I not then part of everyone else that shares or has come into contact with that same information.

Am I my even thoughts? Are my thoughts even me?

Interzone / Swedish Cinemas introduce movie SEXISM ratings
« on: November 10, 2013, 12:23:04 AM »
Beliefs about women's roles in society are influenced by the fact that movie watchers rarely see ‘a female superhero or a female professor or person who makes it through exciting challenges and masters them,’ Tejle said, noting that the rating doesn't say anything about the quality of the film. ‘The goal is to see more female stories and perspectives on cinema screens.’

‘If they want different kind of movies they should produce some themselves and not just point fingers at other people,’ said Tanja Bergkvist, a physicist who writes a blog about Sweden's ‘gender madness.’


Interzone / Lost mind
« on: November 07, 2013, 02:07:36 AM »
In a small outdoor food-court in a humid, massively overpopulated area somewhere in south east Asia, I watched an old man have a conversation with himself, that is to say, when he wasn't too busy begging for money. Of course once he had collected enough money he went and bought food. And once he had bought the delicious food he went and fed it to the many feral cats that secretly inhabit every crevice, little souls that no civilized member of society would otherwise notice.

Apparently, he has been here doing this for as long as anyone can remember.

His insanity struck me as type of sanity.

Metal / Ildjarn/Hate Forest - Those Once Mighty Fallen
« on: October 31, 2013, 06:12:49 AM »
Info : From the cold blackened graves their shadows rise.... Osmose Productions releases unexpected ILDJARN / HATE FOREST split CD/LP, called "Those Once Mighty Fallen". Both dead bands are presented with their lost and forgotten recordings, accidentally found not so long ago.
ILDJARN's songs were created in the dark year of 1994 and HATE FOREST's- during cold winter nights of 2000-2001.
Now, carefully re-mixed and re-mastered this audio- terror is available first time. A real epitaph to sincere, true black metal. SPECIAL CASEWRAPPED CD EDITION for the first run !


Interzone / Is Google rotting your memory?
« on: October 07, 2013, 01:40:10 AM »
As many as 87 per cent of those who took part (in the survey) said a ‘heavy reliance’ on the internet meant they made less of an effort to remember things 'because we can look them up'.


Interzone / Darkness
« on: October 05, 2013, 06:15:16 PM »
Light in the abscence of any real light in the abscence light

Feeling your way to where you need to be

Knowing the real you

(there isn't one)

Interzone / Is death even real?
« on: October 05, 2013, 05:59:34 PM »
Since time immemorial.

A concept of life and death in flux, life preceeding death, death preceeding life has permeated the deepest depths of the (animal or human) soul.

It is a concept shared to variable extents across innummerable human cultures (perhaps even invariably).

Excepting, of course,our own modern concept of a culture.


Metal / Suuri Shamaani
« on: October 04, 2013, 04:52:23 PM »
As some of you may know, Marko Laiho aka Nuclear Holocausto Vengeance of Beherit is said to have had a fairly prolific yet largely unheard of career in the world of electronic music. Personally I love the electronic stuff (especially EDS and Suuri Shamaani) but have been surprised to find so few other works listed under his name.

Recently I came across a few things he seems to have been involved in and will no doubt be seeking them out. It’s a short list, but if anyone else has any other info or further commentary on the matter it would greatly appreciated.

Nimetön ‎– Untitled One
Poleeni – Poleeni EP
Sensien – Some Make Quiet Machines

Thought this track was pretty cool anyway.

Also this:
If any of you are any good and reading code?

Metal / Infester lyrics

I love [....] drowning in oceans of diarrhoea

Couldn't be more well apt to the this board after it merged with commerce.

Interzone / Multivitamins
« on: October 04, 2013, 02:46:57 AM »
Do these work? are they to be given any credibility? Do you take any or can attest to their value?
Or is it just an upcoming industry that rivals the big pharmaceutical companies?

Some interesting arguments:

Some say that our modern farming methods have depleted the naturally occurring nutritional properties in what can currently be produced, making multivitamin supplements an essential, yet on the other hand they insist on it not replacing a balanced diet. I am naturally a little cynical about most things science, especially since just about anything that has recently been found in a study (and read about in a paper) could and often is later found to be wrong (in another paper).

Metal / Motivation and its inherent self-destruct mechanism
« on: October 02, 2013, 09:35:10 AM »
I recently watched a documentary on the late, (once) great Syd Barret whereby after his initial explosion of creative impetus and subsequent popularity he had found himself in what was possibly the most severe state of psychological burnout imaginable, something that has been contemplated time and again by his fans and in general contemporary music culture for the better part of half a century.

I remember they interviewed a well-wishing queer that had taken him in and whom he lived with as a flatmate in the subsequent years that followed as having said he felt he knew exactly what Syd was thinking at any given time (and that for most of the time it was the same thing); Laying back on his mattress in the next room, arms folded behind his head, starring up at the ceiling “he knew he could achieve anything he wanted, but that the moment he set about doing it, it became impossible”.

That’s about as honest and accurate as I think it gets, oddly enough, and to be honest I hate it. Perceived greatness at that time meant that when you hit the brick wall, you either burn out or die at peak. Art as always carries its inherent zeitgeist and in modern times it is all too often immortalized through that brief flash of brilliance (which is more often than not simply what could be) as opposed to a long and steady dedication to a craft, something less desperate and more stable that at the very least will only grow from previous strengths.

Perhaps metal sought out an alternative to this with its constant striving for and emphasis on the eternal and the image of being true. But for the most part this is so thoroughly negated by the almost inevitable phenomena of selling out, in which case I think it probably is better to die at peak.
