Okay, the drummer can't really execute the Faust-drum beat as suave as say the Kvist guy can but regardless, you cannot deny the majesty that lies in the video!t

To have lived during the early 90s in Norway!

By the way, started this thread AGAIN because I wanted to expose Mr. Rippetoe who is the more proficient and seasoned strength training coach/writer/guru than say, Mehdi of StrongLifts. A personal opinion.

Oh and also, Mehdi/Strong Lifts creator is now CHARGING to get into his message board. Fucking cunt. Another reason why to start this thread.

Wow. Awesome! I'm glad there are strength enthusiasts in this board.  Strong Lifts worked really well for me in the beginning.

Background: I got into a street fight at a party several years ago. The guy threw the first punch, he missed, I decked him across the face and broke his nose (LOL I felt so victorious for that moment), then he got even more pissed  and threw me down and took a massive blow at my face as he pinned me on the floor. My buddy came instantly and snagged him off me and beat the shit out of him while I lay there on the floor dazed and bleeding profusely. Sigh.

After a case of beer later that night, I typed on google "how to gain strength". I was EMBARRESED because this fucking Cradle of Filth prick tackled ME down! Funny how these sort of things put you on check :) So, I discovered Mehdi's Strong Lifts program and long story short, worked really well until I stalled on the majority of the core lifts. Then came in Mr. Rippetoe. GAWD. He is the fucking man let me tell ya...Go figure, the dude is a former scientist/competitive powerlifter with 30 years experience coaching.

Buy his books. They'll do you a huge favor.

Just for fun.

Here they are....executing their reality-suspending classic in '95: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTwzLyNIziQ
There HAS to be a current band out there who evokes the same 'melodic and sweeping' atmosphere...but who?

Yes. When I first obtained that album (Emperor/Enslaved), I could not stop spinning it. It resonated with me quite well, as if I had all these emotions trapped inside only later to become channeled after listening to that album. Later when I heard Trolltar, I knew something was similar...it was then when my fascination of romantic and melodic Black Metal began.

"A weak man is not as happy as that same man would be if he were strong. This reality is offensive to some people who would like the intellectual or spiritual to take precedence." - Rippetoe, page 1.

Black metal powerlifter: http://www.jimwendler.com/

 "...If you read and comprehend [Starting Strength] and nothing else, you will be ahead of 99% of the training world." Quote by Wendler on the back of Rippetoe's subsequent book titled, Practical Programming.

There is more to life than whining about why black metal sucks today. A few tips on how to get you out of that chair you're plastered on:

1. Buy "Starting Strength - Basic Barbel Training" by Mark Rippetoe


2. Read the book THOROUGHLY.  

3. Join the Starting Strength Forums. Here, you will ask questions about anything you are unclear of and you will post videos of yourself executing the exercises. LOL, seems weird but just as you think you have the technique and form down...there's a good chance you certainly will not :)


Set aside plenty  of time to do your homework for the next several months as you attempt the simple 3-day/week strength program discussed in the book. The bio-mechanics/physics of the squat, deadlift, over-head press, bench press, etc are extensively covered. There is also a section on how to set-up your beginner's program which again, is NOT complicated. Even if you have NO experience lifting weights, there's an article on that too. Three main exercises per session, good luck.

Wow. He looks unhealthy. He needs to squat, press, deadlift more.

Trolltaar is timeless! Romantic and exquisite! Much like Emperor's Hordane's Land!

So, is this dude behind it all? His Numinous Way writings do resemble selected ONA documents....Your thoughts?

Genetics was a very difficult course for me. Much harder than physical chemistry was. Kudos to you if you're keen on this subject.

Gehenna's first two are probably better than all of them, except early Emperor and Avzhia's "The Key of Throne". Sammath's first album is okay. Can't say I've found (or looked) for anything similar of any quality unless you want to throw Summoning in there.

The first half of the first Gehenna album is fucking lovely but all the songs have the same god dang beat and it turned out to be a bad thing for me. In the end, it didn't live up to Hordanes Land split cd, the first Dimmu Borgir, etc.

Sammath I've never heard (or at least I don't think I have). But will go on youtube just now..

Metal / Re: Why not create your own metal music?
« on: September 14, 2011, 01:17:05 PM »
Judging from the responses thus far.... I'm assuming no o.g. Anus staff member has released black metal? Or even attempted to make some?  Reason I ask is because this website attacks so viciously on the new bands out there (and there's excellent reason for it,yes) but my whole point for starting this thread is to see if any staff member like Prozak for instance, who wrote some really kick ass reviews, has created any fucking black metal?!

Oh, well.

Wow, it's been two years since I've checked for any responses and nothing has been released yet. I'm DYING to hear it. Anyone else? I mean, their progged out heavy metal/black metal is outrageous? Who wouldn't like it?

Black metal was nice when it WAS THERE. And I'm okay with that.

Perhaps one of you staff writers here can actually come up with some good black metal music. I'd really like to see that ;)
