I listen to Disma and to a lesser extent Blaspherian. Thevetat sounded good too!

Audiofile will bring traffic from outside, but I think most regular posters here already have the classic stuff or are only looking to download new or overlooked stuff to preview before buying. Still I think it is worthwhile having the core top 50 or 100 all time best works available for those finding their way.

In case anyone didn't already know, nazi.org.uk actually hosts some top notch classical rarities directly on their site. But it's probably out of the question that the top 10 metal albums could be hosted directly from this site.

To me conversation and exchange of ideas is what makes the place. In that respect, enough people drop out of the conversation and the rest follow suit. I think continual interaction is required to keep up momentum. Of course time is limited for most people but when momentum drops off it doesn't help either.

It is usually more important that I understand what is being read, so I read slowly and carefully. It might even need to be read over again. Poetry (including some heavy metal lyrics) I try to memorize and decode their essence, even rewording them if needs be.

True to a life-long interest in underground extreme Metal, Season of Mist will release the full back catalogue of Norwegian cult act ILDJARN, as well as the ILDJARN-NIDHOGG and SORT VOKTER productions. Here is the comprehensive list of reissues:

Norse (EP)
Ildjarn (album)

Svartfråd (EP)
Forest Poetry (album)
Hardangervidda (album)
Hardangervidda part 2 (EP)
1992-1995 (compilation)

Nocturnal Visions (EP)
Minnesjord – The Dark Soil (EP)

All 15 reissues will be available digitally in the upcoming weeks and most of them will hit the stores in physical editions later on. More information soon!

Please note that ILDJARN ceased all musical activities a long time ago and therefore does not do interviews and does not run any official web page or social network.

Eventually, the population of the Earth will decrease, but not due to us evening ourselves out or anything. No, it'll decrease because of lack of resources and widespread famine.

http://www.deccanherald.com/content/80382/food-shortage-may-hit-world.html

The problem isn't so much how much reproducing is happening but who is reproducing. The likes of Europe and Japan are on their deathbeds.

Like most issues affecting life in the modern world, it’s a multifaceted problem. Because we can only guess at what might become if things continue as they are, and because any given set of statistics can easily be rerouted into supporting totally contrasting points of view, it really comes down to one guess against the other. This inability to agree on anything as a civilization let alone act is like mental illness on mass.

I believe that overpopulation is the most in-your-face example of the failure of modernity by far. I believe even morons can understand why. It is the wildest manifestation of the moderns' fixation with quantity not quality (in a universe that most clearly values quality more). In a functional universe like this, it is as if you're saying every personal computer has the same value. Well Mr Modern, even your capitalist system neglects this view. Pathetic.

Though many of the extreme left gravitate toward environmentalism I believe this is merely to weaken its resolve while those who openly downplay environmental concerns are usually geared towards purely economic interests.

Another thing about overpopulation is that it proves that technology (if it's gone too far) might become destructively dysgenic and apocalyptic. I don't know, maybe technology is not inherently bad, but there has to be a certain degree of genetic/cultural evolution of the life forms themselves before they are worthy of handling such a level of technology.

Our problems are multifaceted as I say. The thing to keep in mind is necessity. It applies to most things.

Well it's a work in progress for me. I did Taekwondo for many years as a youngster and it was heaps of fun and good camaraderie. These days the whole martial arts 'scene' appears little more than sado-masochistic thuggery with all sense of honor and good will bleached out of it. It might be oversimplifying things but I see most non-gay men as having to prove their manliness through overt aggression, as if to seek vengeance from the world that wronged them.

What marks aristocracy is its distinction from the proletariat, and these days all the proles are pretty.

I generally agree. But there's also the issue of inheriting without comprehending, along with the gradual dilution of noble and royal blood. You might say true aristocracy is like a dusky jewel whereas the proletariat is like polished turd.

Some young children accurately diagnosed as autistic lose their symptoms and their diagnosis as they get older, say US researchers.

Disease symptomology dissipates as there is no natural state to base it against?

To this day, Lords of Chaos is still one of the best books out there on the topic of metal as art/ideology. Unfortunately it's presented in the style of a tabloid newspaper which does it more of disservice than anything. The Celtic Frost biography, Only Death is Real, is ok but like most books about metal it is more for fans that worship idols.

Consider the leftists who consistently buy Fair Trade products, who consistently indulge in a vegetarian lifestyle, who consistently send money to poor countries. They most certainly practice what they preach.

These are token gestures. A way of appearing to right the wrongs of the world (without realizing liberalism itself is the prime cause thereof). I've got no doubt they might put unparalled energy into practicing what they preach, and may even be good natured people, but there is a natural order that pervades all things and I don't think liberals can stomach it. Their thinking becomes an anti-ideology. A maladaptive reaction based on fear of the hardships of reality.

That being said, I also don't see the value of making an enemy. There is variable potential for change in people though I personally see helping them as a task beyond my capacity.

The problem is, you've already been made an enemy. They will slander and defame you as they have done to their opposition for centuries.

I was thinking of the many conservatives that say they started out as liberals. There are also those higher up, pulling the strings of the extreme left who couldn't appear more conservative.
