Metal / Re: Young adults - solipsists?

Human interaction is vastly simplified when the social image of the person can be absolutely controlled by themselves, without having to perform in first person confrontation. I see today's youth blindly indulging in this enhanced ease of communication, this "more efficient" form of interaction, removing them further from any virtue and value in reality and prodding them to continue as they gain more nonsensical hallow attention from their peers, temporarily boosting ego and esteem, and thus becoming a cycle of wanting the feeling they get when a response to their proposed self-imagery is completed by others whom opinions they want to impress or alter.

The solipsist idea applies in this situation because others are only viewed as devices to complete ones own want of self-recognition and ego. The "myspace generation" certainly is wonderful.

Entertainment is born of industrialization.
 
I was seeing entertainment as its base definition, that of being entertained, when base needs are fulfilled, as it took place in all ages of human civilization, like roman Colosseum events and medieval traveling minstrels.


I don't really see noisecore as being anything too important, but as an interesting idea to look into for those who wouldn't use it as an image tool, but for the purity of almost comically mocking the whole of "popular music" and the ridiculous social ideology it creates. I enjoy the Blasting structureless atmosphere , the thoughts that it creates from listening to it are different than that of metal.

The term "noisecore" can be interchanged with anything, its just ultra noisy almost grind-like sounds.

I have D.I.Y CD and listen to it quite a lot. Do you have anything else from them? I think D.I.Y CD was their only widely available material.

Thats what I'm aiming for. Seems like the best career choice to excite and make use of a insatiable interest In plant life and psychoactives/human relationships.

Maybe a research psychologist would be a good career choice for the thinker, to take an offense against prozac and other such pharmaceuticals.

Having a custom bass and guitar business would be an excellent undertaking.

Metal / Noisecore

Interesting style of sound to look into if you can stand the complete anti-music of it. Presents a competent social idea and drives it home with blasts of noise chaos using traditional rock instruments, derailing the interest of anyone who doesn't understand the intent of its creation. In a way, the ultimate answer to the industrialization of entertainment.

I find Grindcore to be the style that most directly and profoundly assaults the status of the monetarily driven western world, and the human reaction that the constant want for greater wealth is the causality of. Grind is seemingly an anti-music and good grind is difficult to market (though attempts have been made). There is no facade of evil or other imagery in the grind aesthetic, it is direct and malignant to the insincerity and self-destructive nature of the western world.

Neofolk is a very interesting and relatively new form of music to look into, started by Sol Invictus and Death in June in the late 80's and since has spawned a large number of other artists throughout Europe. I enjoy it for its empiricist attitude and open dislike of techno-society.

While thumbing through my High School yearbook a few months prior, I noticed that 14 separate people used the expression "Everything Happens for a reason" as their senior quote, which put me in a state of gleeful dismay about my High School years. These adolescents observably needed a way to justify their self-righteous indulgence in what they seen as a wonderful and free way of life, enshrouded with alcohol intoxication and other shallow pleasures of the flesh on weekends, while providing for their parents requirements during the workweek, in so that they would be left alone to indulge on weekends, which is synonymous with the state of modern adulthood. So essentially they are acting as a benefactor to only themselves, which they are trained to do, which I understand is a symptom of the idea of solipsism.  

I see that many people attempt to portray themselves as unique by inverting the value of exoteric knowledge and popular indulgences to befit their own agendas at passing themselves off as better or different to nurse the ego, without understanding that these pleasures and knowable things are easily attainable by any able human anywhere without putting forth much effort.

It is a possibility that a slight rebound of the original spirit of metal may return in some more popular acts as what is considered "metal" today by the general public is a bunch of turds with their bangs in their eyes playing hyper technical stop-go motion metallic grindy garbage with a melodramatic overload in the lyrics and overall presentation. So in reaction a band like Mayhem or Satyricon who share airplay with a band like From Autumn to Ashes on Headbangers ball may confront their failing image and recreate themselves in a less shallow fashion. But why does the general metal population continue to focus on these washed up old acts anyway?

Metal / Quebecois black metal
« on: May 11, 2007, 10:57:01 PM »
It would appear as though most black metal post 1997 exhibits the same redundant and rehashed concepts that made the originators in Norway great, however I observe the modern scene in Quebec to have many similarities to what happened in Norway in 1989-1994. The sound of Quebec black metal is unique enough to be credited as a subgenre, heavily laden with nationalist feelings that are transfered through a unique style of writing melodic passages that manage to evoke a cold and picturesque feel. While most bands from the area do not make metal worthy of individual mention, as a whole they deserve observation for staying true to the art and not dumbing down their music with self-pity and other new age agenda.  

A few interesting projects are
Akitsa
Thesyre
Brume d'Automne
Forteresse
Ciel Nordique
Héritage Mystique
