Metal / Re: Profanatica - Progenitors of the Omni-Riff
« on: June 30, 2014, 10:21:43 PM »
Like Ildjarn, like Discharge, it's music boiled down to its most basic components. There is something very hypnotic about the way these very simple riffs interact if you get in the right head space.

After a few listens the new Profanatica has really grown on me. It almost comes across as a sick parody of music.

^ Basically yeah, the above post says it all.

This site is a consistent source of great recommendations and interesting reads. I haven't posted on the forum the some years now, but I'm always sure to recommend people visit here if they're interested in exploring extreme metal.

Interesting as this was, I don't think any of these guys have anything on the kind of solitude that Ildjarn seems to live in.

Definitely Marduk. Whilst Opus Nocturne is an above average album the rest of their discography is simply terrible. A one off fluke for sure.

It honestly varies because there is so much of it. Thrash, speed, grindcore and some death metal are clearly reactionary. But then so many bands, particularly in black metal, will reference pre-christian mythology and the like. Others will be more vague and just hint at yearning for the past.

Black metal is the closet thing to creating a new ideology of some kind, but I think it's not so much about creating something new as re-discovering the old.

I think the reason for you seeing two sides of the argument is because there is no consensus for the whole metal culture.

Though I'd give this a bump as this years celebrations aren't far off.

Metal / Re: Buying CDs

Deleting mp3s off my computer once I've bought the physical version is weirdly satisfying, it's like culling the old weaker version to make way for the new age.

Cool ad hominem, bro.

Actually choked on my tea when I saw what the first link in this post went to.

Yet you didn't actually listen to or analyze to any of the music? Nice knee jerk reaction. If you would have you might have noticed that, unlike what you misappropriate as "neoclassical", this actually has something in common with classical music.

Also, telling someone to "do some more reading" (when the subject is music!) = "I can't provide a defense for my irrational, yet ingrained views." Seen this a lot with creationists and stormfront users.

OK, enough browbeating.

The reason I told you to do some more reading is because joining this forum and engaging in the dialogue requires that you at least have an idea as to where this website is coming from in terms of ideals. This forum isn't perfect, but it's the best of its kind. You clearly haven't done even the most basic research, so I recommend you take a look at some of the key articles on the ANUS homepage like the history and FAQ. No, this isn't me ducking the question. But we're clearly talking past each other because of this, and those articles will explain things far more eloquently than I will.

Once you've done that you'll realise the different ways that we're using the terms classical and neo-classical and how these terms have been manipulated over time to apply not just to aesthetics like your little youtube link, but to form, technique and structure as well.

If you're just another troll then no doubt you'll be fucking off about now, but if you're actually willing to learn then do a little bit of research in order to have a more civilised discussion on this forum.

Yes, it is elitist, and no, that's actually a good thing.

And the least you could do when talking about "neoclassical metal" is to actually refer to metal that is like classical music. Not some typical, musically illiterate double bass extravaganza for the kiddies to bang their heads to.

P.S. If you think there's a better webcomic than SMBC, let's see it.

Seriously, you an idiot?

I think this is one of those occasions when you're just not arguing at the same level. 

Go away and do some more reading, you might learn something. Or go away troll somewhere else if that sounds too hard.

This is a special interest forum, if the website(s) didn't give that away for the past 30 some-odd  years. Trolololing your interests in styles that are diametrically opposed to neoclassically styled metal will get you nowhere. Of course I don't think anyone here is a mere dreg of the website, but one thing you don't see people doing [often] is pleading with others to change foundational principles that bind the community together in dialogue. It would be like me trying to sell the idea of IX Equilibrium to Scourge: ain't gonna happen.

A very nice summation of the phenomena.

One normally shows up every two months or so. You can spot what they're about within around two posts usually. I sometimes call them on their shit but it honestly depends on what mood I'm in. Even if you do challenge them they don't stick around too long.

In this instance it's not about the brand, it's about what it represents.

Never said that

Sure, buddy. Then I guess in your mind there's also nothing "wrong" with listening to Krallice and Velvet Cacoon.

You an idiot?

Nope, what's your point?

Can you clarify what you mean by a reluctance to encourage their readership in the same way a proper scene would?

Part of the reason for there being no scene around ANUS is because it's followers are so dispersed around the globe. Or maybe I'm just missing the point.

You know, I really thought that this would be an interesting discussion about this:

http://www.deathmetal.org/news/winglord-the-chosen-one/

I guess this thread perfectly illustrates why I would steer clear of using this term for anything that may seem like it suits it. 'Post' genres carry too many negative connotations to be associated with them.
