Metal / Re: America should have avoided making black metal
« Last post by death metal black metal on July 20, 2015, 12:11:48 PM »
USA, Germany and UK all sat out black metal for some reason. Theory: they were busy succeeding with death metal or power metal at the time.

Metal / Re: Metal improving in 2007

Metal has been improving since 2007, but the problem is that anything of quality is limited to hobbyist level.

Metal / Re: Bands that you want to see reviewed by DLA

And 20 years later, absent a few real omissions, the DLA has qualified itself well in its choices.

Metal / Re: What's next and who's doin it?
« Last post by death metal black metal on July 20, 2015, 12:09:52 PM »
What's next is... nothing. Metal is awash in parasitic fans who want idiocy and will not produce anything until that changes. It is an occupied land.

Metal / Re: Underrated albums?

These threads die on every forum because they go from "lost gems" to "this B+ record is OK I guess but no one else has mentioned it."

Metalheads consume too much media of the mainstream variety. Drop out!

Metal / Re: Metal is 100% derived from classical
« Last post by death metal black metal on July 20, 2015, 12:07:52 PM »
An attempt by the upper echelon of metal bands to create narrative structures does not constitute a similiarity in methodology.

You just said it did. They both attempt to create narrative structures. Artists do that to express something similar.

Trying to split hairs on this one makes no sense because the VAST MAJORITY of music takes the opposite approach. Metal, classical and a few others stick out like sore thumbs.

Metal / Re: Burzum - Belus
« Last post by death metal black metal on July 20, 2015, 12:03:59 PM »
Burzum, 20 years on:

- Mainstream politics is now explicitly about race and religious conflict which are seen as inherent. It has not yet reached the level of concern about collapse of civilization.
- The early black metal albums are good, Filosofem is a mixed bag, Hlidskjalf is good, and then after a brief interlude, the recent ambient albums are good but mixed baggish.

I'd say Varg rocked the world. It just took it two decades to catch up with him.
