It would have been excusable
that Morbid Angel
were kings of the car-wash
had they split up after Covenant

Interzone / Re: What is your political viewpoint?
« on: April 07, 2012, 04:08:35 PM »
Though I agree with those basic tenents as outlined I mostly steer away from politics as I'm rather ignorant of any conventional understanding of it. I always pay close attention to environmental concerns but am often confronted with the worst examples of how difficult it would be to make any difference i.e. people that boldly refuse to acknowledge the concept of climate change seemingly on the grounds that it won't help the economy. I mean how do you uphold such an ideology as this in the 'real world'?

This is where I break away:

Forward, not back.

Keep technology.

This is true, but where do we draw the line? As the unabomber illustrates, the progression of technology has been so tied up in the pursuit of capitalism and that it has ceased to serve any real purpose and in fact retards human potential in the long run. If we keep only that which is truly useful it actually doesn't leave much.

I mainly fit into the first and second catagory. Live a very humble life, try to reduce everything to the basics. Not career-orientated though still trying to expand knowledge outside of that. Lone-wolfish by default. Would never do a shooting frenzy but see it as a measure of societal dysfunction.

None of my concerns in life would be affected by a totalitarian regime. It's no different than what we're in now. The compulsion now is that without money, we are doomed in this world. To get money, you have to please people or government. That's more tyrannical than any king.

Agreed, I'm not a violent person, but I can never sympathise with the degenerate behaviour because I don't subscribe to it and I therefore, I wouldn't loose out when a society inevitably cleanses itself. Furthmore, I think it's only in the severity of the perversion that such 'tyrannies' would ever arise.

I don't think using the norse poetry is completely unworkable when you consider how Summoning were able to adapt Tolkiens poetry to great effect. Needless to say Burzums success was on a completely different wavelength from Summoning; namely, a subconscious one. He failed here in that his music became too self-conscious and judging from interviews, too stubborn and self-righteous. It's justification to himself that he can lazily churn out any rubbish and stand becond criticism, but meanwhile he has disgraced the great norse tradition of the skald.

This is about periodic re-evaluation of oneself. Avoiding complanceny, searching for peace yet not getting too comfortable. Realizing your life-mission and cutting all stops to achieve that.
Realizing life is too short to muck around. Being intolerant of others guilty pleasures or perversions. Anyone else have similar experiences?

In a topsy turvy world like this almost any rubbish can be argued for or against ad infinitum. To me it's simpler, people are either decent/acceptable or they exhibit the subhuman behaviour, in which case I wouldn't look twice at them.

As a genre it's an obvious dead end, but what isn't in these times? As a compositional device I think bands could learn a lot from varying the tempos a bit more. And in a way that is probably the most defining aspect of death/black metal as it broke away from the constant high energy of speed metal in the late 80s.

Interzone / Purge of mind and soul

The more I learn to see the world as a stream of repetitious or cyclical motion, the clearer it seems to become. And occasionally when I see things clearly enough I decide to have some effect on what I can. Starting with the self, it seems best to live as close to necessity as possible and if there's any rotting flesh, to cut it off.

Evolution made them the way they are, who am I to judge?

A dysfunctional background made them the way they are. Cause and effect.

It seems to me that pragmatically, they aren't an issue until they cause too many problems. In which case, you deal with them like any other trouble-maker.

Well, if they're not causing trouble, then it's no trouble.

Usually they would have to come into correctional or mental health services to have been diagnosed as such, which means they were causing trouble or are liable to in the future.

Metal / Re: What is heavy?
« on: March 26, 2012, 12:56:28 PM »
Don't say burning churches is part of the fake heavy. That was the heaviest thing the Norse bands did. :)
see when it stops being about making metal music then whats the point. see when they start to believe their music is the gateway to hell and satan thinks they are really cool then they are the same as religious fanatics.

The way I see it music is an abstract expression of ideology whereas actions are the physical result of it. There's no law to say the two paths can't meet, though it often gets messy when they do. But what counts is that the expression is real and honest. And on that note I'm reminded of an early interview with Justin Broadrick wherein he states there's nothing heavier than Godflesh; nothing more 'real'.

This video actually reminded me of the scene on Until the light takes us where Frost of Satyricon is cutting himself in front of an audience in Italy, and it's honestly one of the most pathetic things I've ever seen. Something I would expect from these idiots but not from a metal listener.

I pretty much listened to this non-stop for the first week and it is awesome. The drumming is almost a shift towards de-centralising rhythm, whereas Joined in Darkness is shaped around a continual pulse, this can almost be likened to the style of the 2nd and 3rd Immortal albums.

There's a lot more to production aesthetic than simply recording in high fidelity, and more importantly I hope they can play it in the same spirit as the original. Nevertheless I do look forward to hearing it even if I'm always skeptical of this sort of thing, hoping I won't have to add it to the same bin where the latest Burzum or Stormblåst MMV ended up.
