Interzone / Staying up late
« on: May 09, 2014, 12:40:23 AM »
It used to be that the world seemed to slow down at night, just enough, for me to collect my thoughts. But now itís all quite different and hopefully for the better; getting up with the first ray of sun and the song of the birds is a bliss that was always there but all too often left unnoticed.

(or maybe Iím just getting older?). 

Anyway, I imagine youíve all been there, visiting the deepest darkest depths of the night, finding yourself, or perhaps just finding yourself at a computer screen yet again. What time is it now even as you contemplate this question?

Is death not just a part of life's spectrum? Is life not just one big litmus test?

The world of immaterial forms i.e. the world of the spirit, runs through this life/death spectrum like the stitching together of fabrics to create beautiful garments. These things are inseparably connected; Life, death, spirit and beauty.

In this sense, the words of crow are more at one with the true spirit of death metal than most of these wimpy CD collectors could ever be.

What a time to be alive, hey?

I will definitely be one to second this recommendation and enthusiasm.

I love the way they've been able to develop their art beyond the finite realms of expectation without resorting to too much sonic trickery or in letting the musical process become overly abstracted. For example, their 'songs' are still their songs, pleasantly familiar, and yet the subtle array of variations that run beneath it all are innumerable. At other times the audio-visual crossover is so compelling and immersive that one could completely forget themselves, as if some code that unlocks the psyche where accessed before flooding it with ecstatic transfers of data.

I'm not too well versed with thrash or punk and I only really listened to this just recently because of this thread, but yeah it sounds alright, easily up there with DRI as far as I can tell. (So thanks).

Metal / Re: What bands are you listening to today?
« on: May 08, 2014, 12:56:07 AM »
Fenrir, I honestly don't know how you can listen to metal and classical back to back. I mean, it's great that you can and I can certainly appreciate the deeper link between various, seemingly contrasting forms of music, but my own experiences as a listener would find the abrupt jump from one 'sound texture' to the next a bit jarring.

Metal / Re: Most Important(Influential) Metal Bands
« on: May 08, 2014, 12:46:41 AM »
It's been said before, many a time and in many different ways, that there are foundational bands i.e. those acting as the subconscious crystallization of time (Slayer, Celtic Frost) and those that skirt the fringes, so much so that none can ever compare (Burzum). Preference for one or the other probably depends on where the individual fits into the picture themselves.

Metal / Re: Romantic poetry

Great stuff!

Immortal pretty much made their own language (lyrically and musically) out of the memetic limitations of our own. Second only to Beherit in this context.

But Harald really ought to have compiled and published some of this stuff in book form.

Interzone / Who are you?
« on: April 03, 2014, 02:09:15 AM »
Honestly, who the hell are you to me anyway? a word on my screen perhaps? The truth is I donít know you. I donít even know if you really are real (but I also donít know that youíre not real). Some of you real or unreal people even say things that make me ask myself ďÖis this guy for real?Ē And yet, somehow, in the weirdest of ways, I hope youíre all doing alright, whoever and wherever you are.

I'm trying to grow vegetables and other exotic plants. I would show you all my music but it only exists in my head at the moment, plus I promised myself never to show anyone unless I can get it at least 10 times more solid than Beethoven.

Interzone / Re: Time travel.
« on: April 03, 2014, 01:53:25 AM »
That's very true. But this will basically be the challenge of my life (coupled with a desperate race against time).

And just for the record, I'm not like a third-world-er trying get to the collapsed remnants of the first world, but more so a first-world-er of the old-school just trying to get the hell out of dodge. Wish me luck!

No, truth is not easy, at least not for the western mind in it's current state. Who can imagine for even a moment that what they think is true, isn't? Who can notice the subconscious, or that their mind lies to them via auto-pilot? It's easy enough but oh-so-difficult. I only know because I have in the past been able to catch myself out on that and admit defeat. I guess it's a start.

the problem is that is hard to find a silent place in this society

I can sympathize with this. Where I live now, it's basically too messed up to put into words and so really I envy a lot of you that are able to live near cold and woodlands etc. To make matters more difficult there will be no escape once you put roots down (and the next big holocaust is due for kick-off).

Thinking, knowing and thinking you know.

Thinking, knowing and thinking I know.

How's that for enlightenment?

Lately, I've had this overwhelming feeling that travel is unsafe, no matter where you go. If this isn't true then I'm probably just subconsciously predicting how things might be next week (I'm good at that). It's a shame as I've always wanted to go to Nepal and a few other places. Perhaps I am to die and be reborn there some day.
