The war documentaries are generaly good. Their new ones though are different. They're just interviews with 'new age rebels'. They have a mention of sex in almost all their new documentaries too. They have good documentaries, but the ratio of good to bad documentaries is hastily declining.

I imagine he watches History Channel documentaries. My main problem with those is that the documentaries are just some guy asking some people what they think about something. There's no research and the interviewer has no knowledge on the subject. This leads to erroneous information as many of the people they interview are morons.

Earlier someone compared sports to Burzum. Burzum is art and (watching)sports is entertainment. That's the difference.

Metal was never feared....

Perhaps in Norway for a brief time.

I don't think metal is an acquired taste. I've never not liked metal. Ever since the first time i heard it I've liked it, even before I knew what it was. I don't think people don't like metal because of its sound. I think it's because it's aggressive and rebelious and involves thinking for one's self. In today's world, everyone is a pussy and just accepts everything as is. Also, metal involves not being in denial as most peopel today are. That's why peopel don't like metal, not because of it's sound.

The "super freshness and total attitude" comment has convinced me to not buy it. Thanks for the help.

I know some girl who i played 'In The Nightside Eclipse' to. She's never listened to metal and she loved it. Albeit she did say she liked it because it was catchy and sounded liek music from a Tim Burton movie. She still listens to pop music, but now she's more open to metal. She'll only listen to the softer music though. No death metal in her future. If only she had an ass.

I have a question. Why does it matter? Why do we need more people? Besides, don't most people get into metal on their own? If they're intelligent they'll find it regardless, or at least learn the ideals on their own.

What about singing style? As far as i'm aware, Ozzy used a new singing style than used before. A kind of scary voice. It led to metal singing styles later. He also used those screams in songs to add ambiance. It reminds me of more ambientish black metal bands' singing techniques, except black metal singers distort their voices. I'm not saying Ozzy was a good singer however. Just saying that to avoid that discussion. I think he has a horrible voice, but he did have a few good ideas.

Metal / Re: What would a metal society look like?
« on: June 07, 2007, 01:36:23 AM »
Starting a metal society would not be hard. The main problem i see is finding suitable members. It's not like you can just put an ad up for people to come. Then people that are not welcome would come too. Plus, let's face it, metalheads aren't the most organized people. I stick to my original idea of just getting a bunch of people and invading a town. Not a real invasion, but just a bunch of people moving there. All the depressing black will scare the people away. If anything, buy a buch of firearms and make the residents aware that you have them. They see a bunch of people with long hair, black clothes, and guns, they'll leave. We have to make police as scared of hessians as they are African-Americans. Then there will essentially be self-rule such as in inner-city neighborhoods. Police do not go in there because they are scared. Same would apply here. A few actions would have to be taken though. Nothing scares Americans like domestic terrorist attacks. The problem is that we'll probably just get confused with neo-nazis. So we would need spokespeople as well. We have to make our kind known. Only way I see it is possible for this to work.

Metal / Re: Listening
« on: May 27, 2007, 01:40:46 PM »
I once played this song to this girl, and it literally had a 10 second intro. She took it off before the 10 seconds finished because she didnt' like songs with intros. She couldn't listen for 10 fucking seconds! It's amazing how reliant people are on hooks and choruses to enjoy music. They get bored because it's not 'exciting', but then they listen to songs which just repeat a few words over and over and the same few notes over and over. It makes no sense to me how they can do this. I can't figure out what is going through their heads.

I say a bunch of metalheads just go into a gay community and buy some houses. We all play really loud death metal 24/7 and eventually the gays will leave and we'll have our own community and it won't be in the middle of nowhere.

People will still make music. Things will not change for the good musicians because their target audience will still be the same and they will keep buying their music. This is also similar to writing. There are thousands of writers out there, and most of them write for fun, not financial gain. Some sell some short stories to the local newspapers or magazines, but it's more of an added extra. If they're really good, some publishing company might see a manuscript they wrote and give them a publishing deal. Musicians maybe shouldn't make music as their main source of revenue, but it could be something they do at local places and maybe get paid a little while they're at it. Some record company executive could see them and decide to give them a recording deal.

You people actually like slayer's lyrics? I'm a big fan of theirs, and they're music is soem of the best, but i always found their lyrics to be very stupid and nonsensical at times. Reminds me of cannibal corpse lyrics. They just put random words together that sound cool.

« on: April 21, 2007, 03:55:30 PM »
I don't think price has much to do with what kind of cds peopel buy. If anything the youth today likes to show off how spoiled they are by showing off all the useless, overpriced their parents buy for them, so it would be opposite for music, for teens at least. Price isnt' a big factor in music purchases anyways because as far as i'm aware, all cds cost about the same amount. Interesting article nevertheless.

Sounds more like he's extremely drunk. He tends to be when he says stupid shit like that. I once saw an interview of him where he claimed that he invented blast beats. He was clearly intoxicated though. It seemed he was going to fall out of his chair. Still, i don't think he really said that. the myspace didn't mention it was the official myspace site anywhere.
