Metal / Re: Ildjarn Split was written by Nidhogg

Perhaps an interview on deathmetal.org is due.
Thank you very much. I had many more ideas for projects also in the metal-vein, but drumming together musicians and being in a band is always much more difficult than writing things alone. I had a wish to cover the whole "Pornography"-album by the Cure in Black Metal style, I guess with the main difference from the original being more use of distortion on both bass and guitar and of course som manic Norwegian Black Metal vocals on top. That is an idea I'll never stop to think could have been excellent.

That would be retarded. Forgive me for being suspicious, but how do you know I'm a fan of The Cure? Are you tracking my social media accounts? Do you work for the NSA? Are you really Nidhogg?

Svart Dag and Eksistensens Jeger are two of the greatest pieces of black metal ever recorded. It's nice to finally hear from this artist.

Melodic, melancholic, and melodramatic. Not really what you're looking for but I thought I'd throw it in.

Quote
A century is a long time. Twenty years ago no one could have imagined the effects the internet would have - entire relationships flourish, friendships prosper on the e-mail screen, there's a vast new intimacy and accidental poetry (from the osprey-tracking site to tours round old nuclear silos and the extraordinary aerial trip down the California coastline and a thousand others), not to mention the weirdest porn. The entire human experience seems to unveil itself like the surface of a new planet.

Whether the internet or any other technological marvel can halt the slide into boredom and conformism I seriously doubt. I suspect that (as I pointed out in Super-Cannes) the human race will inevitably move like a sleepwalker towards that vast resource it has hesitated to tap - its own psychopathy. This adventure playground of the soul is waiting for us with its gates wide open, and admission is free.

In short, an elective psychopathy will come to our aid (as it has done many times in the past) - Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, all those willed nightmares that make up much of human history. As Wilder Penrose points out in Super-Cannes, the future will be a huge Darwinian struggle between competing psychopathies. Along with our passivity, we're entering a profoundly masochistic phase - everyone is a victim these days, of parents, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, even love itself. And how much we enjoy it. Our happiest moments are spent trying to think up new varieties of victimhood...

My first reaction to Timothy Treadwell was the typical, "Who is this closeted liberal loon and why should I think he's important?" But after researching more and reading a transcript of his death, my attitude changed. He may have had denial issues but his desire to break free from himself and society to connect with the transcendent is admirable. He may have been a weakling in some respects but he died a true warrior. Not a role model by any stretch but his story is a modern fable that deserves attention.

The problem with conspiracy theories is that they tend to bolster the enemy to Sauron-like proportions. Projecting everything we hate into some untouchable phantasm. The reality is that the enemy are most often idiots as we are.

Hot sauce doesn't work. You need to see blood. Your own if not someone else's.

If none of that works, boil a sharp object and stick it in your skin. It releases endorphins. Ground yourself.

There's a black cloud of doom forming over the west. A malaise that's turning even the most intelligent people into aggressive cynics, pessimists, passive nihilists, alcoholics, masturbaters, videogamers, or just plain unpleasant people to be around. Everybody's fucking miserable and it makes me sick.

This coincides with the rise of the internet. Information overstimulates us and we're taking far more bullshit than our brains evolved to process. You may have had a clear grasp of reality in the past. You may have had "beliefs", "ideals", or just a good understanding of things. Now you're just an animal put in state of delirium by an overdose of stimulation. A primate brain convoluted by a wealth of junk information that does nothing but tug emotion and leads to no knowledge or insight whatsoever.

Shut it all off for a while. Find someone to fuck. It relieves a lot of tension. If you can't, go in the woods, find a deer, and jerk off in front of it. It better than wasting four hours in front of a fucking computer screen.

Listen to metal, classical, Dead Can Dance, or whatever brings the most feelings of stability. Read Nietzsche, H.P. Lovecraft, the Tao Te Ching, The Bhagavad Gita, or even Harry Potter. Anything that makes you forget the bullshit or reminds you of what really matters.

All I remember about Pink Frothy AIDS was that they were a weird metal/prog crossover band that brought out the worst of internet behavior amongst fans of both genres.

There can be great value in keeping a low profile, and keeping your mouth shut.

That seems to be the case in today's world. It took me a while to grow up and accept this. Even if you honestly believe in the constitution and all that American bullshit about "rights", "free expression", ect, it doesn't mean shit in the face of reality. I might still believe in some of this stuff, but I realize that it takes more than a piece of paper and a childish sense of entitlement to protect me from my enemies.

Perhaps its time to let go of that adolescent mentality and actually respect the enemy. These are people that actually want you dead. This may be why punk failed. Metal triumphs over punk because it recognizes the adversary as a force to be reckoned with, not as some kid that should be sent to the corner.

Why do people look upon childhood with such snarkery? I don't think I would have ever taken metal seriously if I didn't discover everything I thought after highschool a complete facade. I looked back to discover what really matters.

Metal / Re: Black Metal with Death Metal vocals
« on: December 28, 2012, 05:38:36 PM »
Try Bethlehem, Varathron, and early Rotting Christ. Masterful NWOBHM with death metal vocals but considered black metal in canon.

For "traditional sounding" black metal, Hate Forest is all that really comes to mind.

Vocals are a superficial to the music as a whole. If you find yourself hung up on them, then perhaps the music just doesn't appeal to you.

This issue drove me to alcoholism. Though the alcohol didn't help with procrastination it did help me stop stressing over it, and for once I was content to not do anything at all.

Quote from: Edgar Allan Poe
We have a task before us which must be speedily performed. We know that it will be ruinous to make delay. The most important crisis of our life calls, trumpet-tongued, for immediate energy and action. We glow, we are consumed with eagerness to commence the work, with the anticipation of whose glorious result our whole souls are on fire. It must, it shall be undertaken to-day, and yet we put it off until to-morrow, and why? There is no answer, except that we feel perverse, using the word with no comprehension of the principle. To-morrow arrives, and with it a more impatient anxiety to do our duty, but with this very increase of anxiety arrives, also, a nameless, a positively fearful, because unfathomable, craving for delay. This craving gathers strength as the moments fly. The last hour for action is at hand. We tremble with the violence of the conflict within us,–of the definite with the indefinite–of the substance with the shadow. But, if the contest have proceeded thus far, it is the shadow which prevails,–we struggle in vain. The clock strikes, and is the knell of our welfare. At the same time, it is the chanticleer- note to the ghost that has so long overawed us. It flies–it disappears–we are free. The old energy returns. We will labor now. Alas, it is too late!
