Interzone / Any scientists, mathematicians, or engineers here?

Just curious, what science/math/engineer field are you studying? And how many of you have already obtained your degrees?

I'm studying to be a clinical microbiologist. Plan to pursue a master's after a b.s. Seeing that our populations keep exploding and new viruses keep popping out out of nowhere...should be a great career to go into :)

I enjoy the old glory days of this stuff! So mystical! So exotic and heavy metal!! It is really great!!!

I think the main reason why these bands were overlooked by the metal scene is because 1) they didn't really have an image (poor country, can't buy fancy wear, you know?) and 2) the sound they "created" was not as dynamic and weird as the Scandanavian stuff. I mean, most of these Greek bands used palm mutes and the Scandinavians did not.  So that was special at the time. Oh yes, and they had more publicity (murders, burnings, etc).

But regardless, the Greek stuff remains my favorite type of extreme metal. So romantic and heavy!! It remains close to me forever!!!

What a better way to relax than to look through an eyepiece of a well crafted telescope and gaze at worlds beyond!

Geeky hobby but it sure does get rid of the stress from  everyday life. Anybody else into STAR GAZING?

Metal / Crippled Black Phoenix: post rock/ambient
« on: May 04, 2006, 07:01:40 PM »
Cripppled Black Phoenix

Based out of the UK with Justin Greaves of Electric Wizard and Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai

Overall, it aint bad. I just wish they could make more use of their dynamics...then we'd have a great project.

Hispanic metal heads have released some brilliant albums for the past 13 years plus and as a legitimate metal community, I think it is important for us to understand how they dealt with things like Catholicism, teenage alienation, and gangster "culture". As seen in their lyrics, many of them left us haunting messages about the consequences of living under a decadent, superstitious society:

"Boiling in anger, spirits of the Decadence and sorrow, I summon you, be the Mediums of my Disaster... One Empire has fallen from it's Wicked grace, We, Lords of Bitterness, of retaliation, must taste Revenge... Take every possible form of
Low-life and Slay and Torment their weak essence. "

- An excerpt from The Chasm's "Our Time is Near"

"Catalepsy, paralyzed
Suspension of the brain
Execration, desperation
Have I gone insane
Pathological, conscienceness
Nearing the last breath
Obscurity possess' my body
And all I see is death

Awaken inside a cold casket
And all I can do is scream
The torment is all thats left
And I pray its all a dream
A desperate fear of death
this muddy world I plunder
"Why" asking in my head
In dying six feet under"

Taken from Sadistic Intent's "Condemed in Misery"

I looked up to many of these groups as a high schooler because they enabled me to take on a heroic, anti-social outlook on things and with out them, I probably would have not made it past the 10th grade. So, here is a list I compiled of some of my favorite Metalleros de la Muerte:

The Chasm: dreamy, cosmic death metal. Try their earlier albums such as From the Lost Years... and Deathcult for Eternity: The Triumph for starters. Their newer material has more of a speed metally/swedish vibe going on. Still unique nonetheless. Also worthy of mention is Procession to the Infraworld. I may add that this release marked the change of sound.

Shub Niggurath: a bit like early Morbid Angel with a haunting vocalist. The Kinglike Celebration (Final Aeon on Earth).

Cenotaph: originally a fantastic percussive death metal band (scroll down to purchase), they quickly transformed into a brilliant melodic death metal group with their second album, Riding Our Black Oceans.

Sadistic Intent: their first official release, Ressurection, sounds like a cross between Dawn of Possession and Altars of Madness. Their recent stuff sounds like pure Morbid Angel worship. Ask Dark Realm Records, a small record store they own, for an mcd of all their material for only several bucks.

Avzhia: epic black metal with nods to early Emperor and early Graveland. Dark Emperors. The Key of Throne. For collective listening, I suggest that the metal head lie underneath the stars to capture the true essence of these magical documents.

Old, outdated, Avzhia website.

Infinitum Obscure. These gents are an extremely professional live act and will provide the metal head a chaotic sonic experience. Musically, they are sort of a speed metally death metal group with a melodic touch. The Manifestation of Internal Darkness to be released soon.

If any groups have been left out, kindly add them.

Metal / Immortal's Blizzard Beasts
« on: March 13, 2006, 07:57:55 PM »
I'm sure most of you regular posters here are well aware of this death metal masterpiece and I have to ask, is that really Horgh playing drums...or a machine?

Rotting Christ's Thy Mighty Contract and Non Serviam fall victim to this as well. Both albums have the drummer listed in the line up yet the drums sound to...drum machine-y.

Metal / Trance: Recommendations?

I'll be heading to the desert in about a month to star gaze and would like to bring some trance music along with me. Any recommendations? Thanks...

Metal / Demoncy Disbands. EDIT: ?

Perhaps it was good timing. After listening to Empire of the Fallen Angel, I was left in utter dissapointment.

Demoncy musts: One track rehearsal [featuring a very death metal version of Impure Blessings (Dark Angel of the Four Wings)], Joined in Darkness, and Faustian Dawn/Within the Sylvan Realms of Frost

Metal / Literature: post reviews of your favorite books

Cosmos - Carl Sagan:

If there is anything my astronomical courses have taught me is that the more we discover about our universe, the more we find out that the human species is just extremely insignificant. The man himself even stated that " in a cosmic perspective, most human concerns are of little significance...even petty."

With that being said, Caral Sagan begins with an insightful introductory about where we fit in the grand scheme of things and discusses past astronomical discoveries about our nearest cosmic neighbors. He then places great emphasis on the exotic and bizzare, asking the reader, "are we alone in the universe?"

We, the inhabitants of the earth have been mystified by the secrets of the cosmos. For centuries we have scanned the skies, in search for a new mapping of the heavens and finally, we have reached the last, final frontier.

I recomend this book to anyone who wishes to expand their cosmic horizons. A +
