Interzone / Re: Success with $1.27 of CD-Rs

Just make sure you have the ANUS URL and I also think it's important to mention the Audiophile section in case they want more (or just so they can see how much of this music there is).

Another defect of society rising to the surface. I have a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Metal / Re: Graveland and Summoning similarities
« on: December 09, 2007, 03:43:22 AM »
Graveland and Summoning aesthetically don't seem too similar but when I stop to think about it, they have dozens of things in common. Graveland though likes to get the job done quicker, when Summoning likes to take as long as possible.

Learn how to play pop black metal, with DJ Abbath
Brought to you by My(Mindless)Space.


As much as I'd like to agree, I can't say I do. Among all of the first, second, and third wavers - I'd say Immortal has done the least damage to black metal genre out of anyone. I'm not going to pretend I know how popular Immortal is considering I'm from the states. But compared to Satyricon, Dimmu, and other bands, Immortal has changed the least.

Only a fool listens to music more than 2-3 times a week.


That's quite a statement you've got there.

Interzone / Re: Why most metal forums suck

To be fair many forums are far more active then this, almost guaranteeing a response within moments of its post. Thus allows you to make several short posts per minute. Where here You usually have to wait a short number of hours until a response is given. Although I do often wonder about the people who have over  60'000 posts.


You have quite the post count considering this type of forum. I do believe thousands of posts isn't too much considering a few posts here and there for years easily add up. I've never seen anyone with a post count of 60,000, and I'm not sure if I really want to meet anyone with that much free time on their hands.

I believe more than "most metal forums" suck.  Pretty much all of them suck. But that doesn't mean you won't find intelligent hessians only here and real life. There's actually miniature metal communities in many forums. Some forums I've found even had on-going threads with over 5,000 posts discussing metal. And not just Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and shit like that, but also bands like Immortal, Bathory, Morbid Angel, ect.  Some of these threads even had predetermined rules banning discussion of metalcore and false metal. The discussions aren't always intelligent but it's good enough. But it was these miniature communities that got me into metal.

Unless a metal forum is heavily moderated to filter out trash, there will be nothing but idiotic conversation. It's a general rule.

I live in Seattle and always go past the mountains when visiting relatives in NE Washington. Never really wandered about though due to a busy schedule. Those last few pictures are very profound.

Interzone / Re: Music to fall asleep to/how it affects your dr

I sleep to music not for experimental purposes, but for simply being able to fall asleep.

The Chasm is here for a reason.  Waste is posted here so that intelligent conversation can be kept to the real forum.

Seriously, this shit has to go somewhere.

Metal / Re: Canonical Metal Collection
« on: November 06, 2007, 09:19:13 PM »
I prefer listing as many albums as possible as opposed to listing as few. ANUS' Top 15 can even be considered enough. An agreeable list with many albums is more useful than list with a few albums. What's the goal of listing "just enough" albums? If you are posting in this thread, you have most likely already heard all of the albums listed. I don't think you should make a list that doesn't serve a purpose. Instead, perhaps a list that shows all of the top-selection albums?

The only people benefiting from these lists are newbies like myself, and it could be much more beneficial if there was more of it.


Excellent list so far, but I don't see why you should limit it if there are more classics out there. It's not only the core albums that form the genre but also pieces of specific works that are pieced together to form a whole.

Where is Hellhammer not trying to leave a mark within the black metal scene?

Interzone / Re: Hair
« on: October 25, 2007, 10:48:00 PM »
 Long hair is superficial and is a fad among the metal community. People who think "Oh, I'm listening to Black Sabbath and since I like metal I should grow long hair" aren't really getting the point. If you believe long hair looks better on you, then go ahead. But for aids-loving christ, don't grow it out for any other purpose. You're not proving anything and you might stand out as a tool to other people.

Metal / Re: Iron Maiden, lyrically evolved?
« on: October 25, 2007, 10:22:28 PM »
I always had the idea that Iron Maiden is a band that anyone can appreciate. They have appeal to both underground and mainstream audiences. It's painfully obvious by reading some interviews and looking at pictures that they aren't party animals riding the publicity wave. They take their musicianship seriously and try to experiment on every following album.

As for To Tame A Land, they had legal issues with the author of Dune (something about hate for "rock'n'roll music").
