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?

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'.

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

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
Nemesis-Sky-Archeology
Sensien – Some Make Quiet Machines

If any of you are any good and reading code?

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.

Interzone / A Dark Dream
« on: October 02, 2013, 09:27:48 AM »
I can’t see a thing. All I can feel are people’s bodies, writhing, pushing, falling and pulling. All are trying to get somewhere, but just where the hell that is, no one knows. Some are helpful, most aren’t. Writhing, pushing, falling and pulling in a structure that resembles some invisible, insurmountable mountain of flesh. Insurmountable due to its own material form; us (with the capacity for connection and a hell of a lot of disconnection).

Don't mean to sound too superstitious, but we are now at around the time of the spring/autumnal equinox depending on where you reside in the dry lands of this planet . And I can't help but feel something major has changed. Apart from two people I sort of knew (know of) dying. Everything seems really ramped up and chaotic. People are really snappy. And I have an extra hard time trying not to snap back. Motivation/creativity fluctuates on Richter-scale type proportions.

I recall a similar phase with another couple of deaths some 3 months ago at the time of winter/summer solstice.

Can the seasons, weather conditions and moon phases exert effects on humanity as is the case with other creatures? Or is it more comforting for us to use a word coincidence in the absence of what can consciously be perceived?

Interzone / Beyond a Man's Cave
« on: September 19, 2013, 03:17:47 AM »
Ildjarn had the Hardanger highlands, Nietzsche had the forests and foothills of Sils Maria.
It seems a common enough theme that a man must have something to write home about.

Metal / Musical ornamentation in death-metal
« on: September 07, 2013, 11:50:37 PM »
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ornaments

While looking at this article on the perhaps non-essential bells and whistles that help make music somewhat more musical, I began to wonder how much of this can be found in death-metal. Indeed, the genre may even have developed its very own idiosyncratic musical ornaments without realizing it or at least feeling the need to put a name to it. Perhaps even the overt lack of or disregard for ornamentation is in itself a form of it (thinking particularly of the stylistic shift between the first and second Darkthrone albums).

Interzone / Flatline
« on: September 03, 2013, 08:15:33 AM »
For a moment there, [our protagonist] thought he was onto something. He could see things clearly and had a healthy concept of where he fits into it all. Creative ideas came with a rush and a roar, but then expanded beyond the point of him having any ability to act on them. He recalled observing similar effects in emotions, which, when left unchecked, grow and diverge to a point where they drown out the spirit and it effectively dies.

I honestly feel better when happy and sad don’t come into the equation. But even this state of non-emotion seems short lived. Is transcendence even possible or are we just riding the storm winds of continuous flux that is life in the modern world?
