Heavy metal religion

Interesting source:

Industrialization and modernization have had a drastic effect on the Western world. The combined effects of urbanization, commercial consumerism, modern science, and a host of other factors have “left us cold, alone and naked in an uncaring universe. It has stripped us of our ability to commune with the transpersonal, robbed us of our freedom to choose, and forbidden us to look inside our own minds for any kind of release (Schroll 2005:60).” Compartmentalization of the aspects of one’s life in modern society furthers a sense of incongruity and separateness. Professional life is often separate from family life; social life is often separate from religious or community activities. The multicultural and ever globalizing nature of the modern world creates its own difficulties. And strong sense of culture and community are rarely based on geographic location, but more often around a sense of one’s history and the beliefs, ideas, habits, morals, and aesthetics it affords. Thus, to find a sense of commonality one must often leave the neighborhood in order to gather with like-minded people. – Dave’s Metal Blog

He goes on to explain how heavy metal forms an ad hoc culture/religion/values system in the above vacuum. Good stuff.

    ^^^^ Interesting comment

  4. @ serious questioner says:

    You could be an addict of sucking cock an it still be arguable if you are gay; on the other hand, if you like Mastodon’s first two records then you are undeniably gay and stupid!

  5. equation of my balls says:

    iPhone + Walmart + Mastodon 6/°(hipster) x malcore – balls = mastodon guy

    FUCK MASTODON, SAMHAIN DISCUSSION

    Sounds like it comes from the point of view of someone who is sick of the modern neurosis of clean, sterile things and large areas where nobody dies. Fallen angels’ warcry of their will to reign in hell, than to serve in heaven?

    Song fucking rules, rambling stoned on lyrics sites or not.

    Prove me wrong.

    Mastodon guy likes Mastodon’s first two records after he found them on her mom’s car.

    What he does not know, is that his mom enjoys to get gangbanged by black thugs who leave her cunt all creampied and her asshole dripping blood and jizz. Just a normal day in the life of that ugly bitch.

    Unfortunately 15 years ago, Mastodon guy was borne out of a late night gangbang party. Today, Mastodon guy’s life consists of saving money for his sex change and listening to Mastodon’s first two albums. Who would have known aye?

    When I was an infant, some crack whore found me a dumpster. She raised me to be a whore like her. So here I was, a male toddler sucking cock. When I turned 13, I moved my way up to assplay and a little scraping of the prostate.

    I was arrested at age 15 for stealing copper pipes which I wouldn’t sell but I would stick up my ass. That was painful!….but fun too. Anyway, I found out what happened to my birth mother. She fucked and sucked all the guys from Mastodon and after they were done with the bitch, they slit her throat. Apparently, that’s what real hessians do to women. When I found that out, I tried to kill myself by taking sleeping pills. You see, I’m a coward and hate pain so I want to die the easy way. No guns or a noose, nothing vulgar like that but let me sleep my way into heaven. So beautiful!

    Anyway, any of you faggots want some tight rectum to fuck, I’d be more than happy to oblige. Toodaloo!

    WOAH DUDE WHEN THOSE VIOLINS KICKED IN IT WAS LIKE A NIHILISTIC ORCHESTRA OF PULSATING FURY MOVING IN CYCLES OF VARIATIONS ON THEMATIC DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A ENSEMBLE OF CHAOS WITH POP SENSIBILITIES! BUT WHERE THIS WORK FAILS IS ITS TENDENCY TO FALL INTO GROOVY RIFFS THAT RIDE THE OFFBEAT, LEAVING YOU WITH PANTERA-ESQUE BOUNCE, AND A BAD TASTE OF PHIL ANSELMO’S LEGENDARY COCK(TRUST ME DOODER I SAW IT ON THAT METAL SHOW ON Vh1).

  13. Princess of Cock says:

    All of Mastodon’s albums are great, and really exemplify Hessian values. They give me good advice too, such as: "when giving a blowjob, play with his balls and stick a finger up his ass".

  14. Serious Questioner says:

    …and we all know who the Princess of Cock really is right?

  15. Princess of Cock... rrmm I mean, Mastodon guy says:

    I keep telling you guys that Mastodon is real metal music but yall keep rejecting that fact! Why? Why can’t I be a hessian too? I like Mastodon because it is great metal and I should be accepted as part as the community you guys have here.

    Why can’t you guys respect my taste in music, why? ¿Why?? You should be nicer to people and realize that you don’t hold a membership to be a hessian. So I am hessian because I think Mastodon is great metal and I don’t care about your insults!

  16. Mastodon guy says:

    Have I told you guys I look prettier when I’ve a cock in my mouth?

  17. @serious dicksucker says:

    The Princess of Cock is really “brutal slayer of christians”

  18. Fuck Mastodon says:

  19. Listen to Slayer says:

  21. @ above poster says:

  22. Listen to Mastodon says:

SERIOUSLY I DARE YOU TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING IN DEFENSE OF SUCH A WEAK SENTIMENT. EVEN NIETZSCHE KNEW FREE SPIRITS WAS THIS SHIT!

    SERIOUSLY COME AT ME YOU HALF-WIT

  26. Listen to Mastodon says:

    effects of industrialization as an effect of … somenthing else, as an effect of something else. it’s easy to call the recent causes as causes in itself. desacralization is modern to the bone and has western christian roots. that is pagan, culturally greek and roman, mixed with nordic blood.

  29. @md says:

    not really bro, at some point the original christian values were inverted to be a sick liberal version which took the place of the old values and is reverted back to its original intent through different means and completely intentionally by black metal.

  30. @ @md says:

    “original christian values” ? the guy and his 12 disciples were a ragtag hobbos group wandering around moralizing everyone and playing “magic” tricks to get food.
    what are you talking about ?

  31. @ @ @md says:

    Apparently jesus’ intention was to separate weak people who succumb to such bullshit from the strong and worthy.

    I dunno man, seems shady.

    FUCKING MIRACLES

  32. Jesus is gay says:

    … if he was alive he would listen to Mastodon.

  33. Jesus is gay says:

    … if he was alive, he would read the DLA archives.

  34. Jesus is gay says:

    If Mastodon guy wasn’t an emo kid with down-syndrome, he wouldn’t be a fan of such homosexual rock music. But like they say: if you are stupid you need stupid music and Mastodon delivers just that.
