Metal / Re: My Bloody Valentine - MBV

I saw these guys and gals play live recently and it was unreal. Most of the setlist was from Loveless. They only played one song off of MBV. It was extremely loud. Felt like being inside a cocoon or a tornado, one or the other.

Interzone / Re: Buying whores
« on: April 02, 2013, 01:09:00 AM »
what about the men who buy prostitutes? The consensus is of course that it's a shameful act, but then again I can't really say how it is anything anything other than expensive, more pleasurable masturbation.

To put it this way.

The poor animals know no better, and because of this god forgives them.
But he does not forgive infidels.

To put it in such a way.

Interzone / Re: Is Capitalism bad?
« on: April 02, 2013, 01:00:18 AM »
A lot of people seem to have the conviction that capitalism, itself, is bad. Is it?

No. But it should be a means to an end.

Capitalism produces what people want. The problem lately is that most people want cheap tvs, cellphones, and horrible pop music. The iTard Generations.

Seems to me the fault lies with the desire, not as much with those who fulfill it. If the population wanted honest business practices, ecology, and high quality products, that's what they would get.

But they don't.

I still think people are led by the nose. Government makes their dysfunction possible.

Too transparent...

How about this?

Everyone wants their daughter to be a prostitute, have some dude cum on her face, maybe penetrate her anus, or call some friends so everyone gets a turn.

People are dumbshits. They don't want a whore for a daughter but also don't see a problem with her attending the 'get better orgasms class'. It just doesn't add up.

Metal / Re: Best metal releases of 2013 thus far?
« on: April 02, 2013, 12:37:21 AM »
I'm looking forward to the new Summoning and am curious about that Burzum synth album.

At any rate, it takes me a while to really get around to hearing new stuff unless I'm already fanatical about that band.

But as always I'm keeping my eyes peeled for long overdue albums by Gorguts, Kraftwerk, Beherit, Demoncy and anyone else that never dropped the ball.

Interzone / Re: Is metal populist?
« on: April 02, 2013, 12:19:17 AM »
Metal peaked in the early 90s. Up until that time there were not many rubbish bands. Assimilation into populist culture occurred later on but it certainly didn't start out that way.

Sometimes I try to think things out with logic, other times I go with my gut feeling. Using the two together without relying on either helps develop natural intuition. This is a true form of strength.

strongly disagree with what you said about the latter half of the album as I feel that is where Shields really distinguishes himself.

I might be wrong about the second half and your're certainly not the first person I've come across who thinks this. Actually I can't say it's bad, just a bit noisier and bouncier than one might predict, more beat-centric. I guess the two halves make sense when viewed in context of the intended vinyl release.

Metal / Re: New Burzum Album
« on: February 24, 2013, 11:07:19 PM »
ęSŰl austan, M‚ni vestanĽ will feature ≈58 minutes of instrumental electronic music, that can best be described as relaxing, slow-paced, contemplative and very much original. You have not heard anything like this before, although we can compare it to other electronic music, such as Tangerine Dream Ė and I guess to old electronic Burzum music as well.

This actually sounds like a good idea. Pieces such as Leere and Rundgang um die tranzendentale Sšule der Singularitšt are among some of the all time best ambient synth works ever produced.

Also, don't forget that Osmose will release a long lost Ildjarn demo this year. It may be the last piece of TRUE NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL ever released!

With the advent of easy-fix antibiotics and the inevitable misuse/overuse by the common man we now have highly infectious superbug-laden office jobs. It's probably safer joining the army. And no, I can't prove any of this.

Interzone / Re: "Mature" modern society giggles when poop is mentioned
« on: February 17, 2013, 11:56:38 PM »
The few non-western countries I've visited displayed a culture that is in complete opposition to anything crass or distasteful. Whereas in the west people look at you like a square for not laughing at poop jokes, the rest of the world (including the pre-modern west) look at you as a subhuman if you do.

I actually thought the new album was called Decay Continues for a moment.

  :D

At any rate, I don't think any of the Norwegian bands have the capacity to create great works anymore. The brain circuitry is just too far gone. Even so I think fans would instantly pay more attention if Darkthrone made Transylvanian Hunger Part II, not that it would necessarily be any good.

Metal / My Bloody Valentine - MBV
« on: February 17, 2013, 02:25:43 AM »
Iíve been listening to this intently for the past week and can honestly say itís the best album Iíve heard this year and probably the best non-metal album in the last decade. At the very least itís well worth a listen if you were even remotely a fan of Loveless.

Initial impressions:

Itís an aesthetic continuation from Loveless. A bit cleaner, more spacious but still very raw analogue sounding production.

Song structures are like expanded, drawn out versions of those found on Loveless

Less pop structure. More of a conscious approach to ambient music (in a style vaguely reminiscent of the other great shoegaze band, Slowdive).

Taken as a whole the album isnít quite as powerful as Loveless, but certain songs are in fact superior.

They still have the wonderful celtic/gaelic melodic idiom.

Ambient hallucinogenic approach to drumming forms the support structure for multiple layers of guitars, synth and noise.

The latter half of the album loses strength by excessive experimentation. It would have been cool to conclude the journey with an epic piece that recaps the first half of the album.
