Trends! Core! Mosh! Fun!

This is a soundtrack to the inside of most people’s heads:

Amor de Días – Late Mornings from Merge Records on Vimeo.

In the background, two uselessly predictable chords clang together, picked with a jaunty offbeat.

In the foreground, totally distracted, neurotic, indirect, confused and pointless vocals fill in the time, like doodles on a page of notes.

The agenda: me, me, me.

Repeated, infinitely, as the person goes through life — oblivious to others, oblivious to consequences, oblivious even to the quality of what they do. They are only thinking of themselves.

It is their God, their one Ring, their hope, their pride — all for something they did not create and cannot control.

These people are the real bigots.

They are bigoted against reality itself, and the science of the woodsman (figure out what must be done, find out how to make it harmonious, and leave as few traces as possible).

They are bigoted against higher standards, values, goals — anything that conflicts with the eternal me, me, ME.

Ultimately, their songs as their lives are one-note. But they will dress them up in frilly diaphonous vocals and try to conceal that from you, as long as they can.

Narcissists thrive in big, anonymous cities, entertainment-related fields (think reality TV), and leadership situations where they can dazzle and dominate others without having to cooperate or suffer the consequences of a bad reputation. “A narcissist monk would not be good, but to be Kanye West and a narcissist is fantastic,” notes University of South Alabama psychologist Peter Jonason, an expert on mating psychology and the darker side of human nature.

{…}

Narcissists’ language and demeanor is often geared toward one objective: to maintain power in an interaction.

{…}

Among a pool of college students, those reporting higher levels of entitlement tended to be the most popular students in the class. In a separate study, Back and his colleagues found that while students expected charming individuals to like others more, people with “self-centered values” actually dislike others more. – Psychology Today

Narcissists want to make you their servant. They want you to think only of them, as they do.

They will present you their music and make you think it’s hip and cool.

Really, it’s empty and one-note.

Like narcissists.

    It must be nice to always have a “BRAINWASHED SELFISH OTHER” to vilify.

    Here, let me try.

    A pointlessly predictable dissonant riff thuds around providing the tapestry for this vapid black metal song. Varg’s tuneless, neurotic pseudo-choral backing vox fail to provide the most basic counterpoint, instead blowing around like debris from a dumpster before the brainless howling, like a baby that wants attention. There is a brief “melancholic” excursion and the song concludes like the most braindead, cloying pop imaginable.

    The agenda? Me, me, me. Look at what a tortured, noble soul I am. The world is so fucked up, so pay attention to me acting out this viking ego drama.

  7. Egalitarianism Rocks! says:

    I also enjoyed the song. It was very populist and made me feel good about myself. Black Metal is very angry and makes me feel depressed, I think only aspies and nazis listen to Black Metal. Got me pretty horny too, my ass is gonna be sore tomorrow. . .

  8. Queer Mc Hungo says:

    What the hell am I talking about? No one here likes Mastodon?! I’m off the meds again. Sorry sweeties! Here’s a better idea. How about some Profanatica and some lube? All night long digging for gold nuggets in my asshole. That’s more fitting.

  9. @lol says:

    the above pointless rambling was just your display of freely insulting someone who still has an ounce of authenticity, who channeled his creativity into some interesting music and who has managed to eschew the need to spit out frustrated shit, and instead make for a curious experience at least, unlike some of his modern counterparts condemned to be eternally impotent critics… like you

  10. truth says:

    Black metal is in no way the anti-individualist, philosphical movement anus makes it out to be. The “serious”, ideological end of it can best be described as a bunch of entitled white males lashing out at the world and making points neofolk made ages ago, and the music is just as self-absorbed and go-nowhere as idiot pop. The fact some of it works on an idiosyncratic compositional vocabulary doesn’t automatically make the end result any more meaningful than The Cure or Lady Gaga.

  11. I know it cause I like it :-) says:

    Isnt that from the new Mastodon album?

  12. Gay truth says:

    What the fuck is wrong wit Lady Gaga man? She has done more for us gay people than many others I know. Show some respect ok?

    I feel so horny after reading ANUS blog posts, I want a hot hard cock in my asshole and in my mouth and to leave it there for a week. Listening to Boris makes me cum in just a minute!

  19. Asperger's Activism says:

    This music is so fascinating.

    It’s like a big loop, except it doesn’t loop. It just repeats like wallpaper.

    I could listen to it forever and not notice I am listening.

  20. above says:

    “can you give some examples where black metal and neofolk relate?”

    Neofolk was an earlier example of a generally right-wing, authoritarian counterculture, alongside RAC/hatecore. Death in June’s first album, for example, was released in ’83, and at that point they were already more ideologically refined than the majority of the bands calling themselves NSBM.

    It’s a piss-poor ideology either way, but black metal isn’t really doing anything new by “ignoring equality, diversity and the individual, and pointing toward the eternal”, or whatever anus says. Which is a tenuous assertion anyway, because Bathory, Darkthrone, Sarcofago, Hellhammer, etc. were basically all liberals putting on a show.

  21. bloop says:

    “lol”, I just want to congratulate you. You have it right. Conservationist or whoever authored this’s dumb interpretation could apply to anything, ESPECIALLY to the trite black and death metal promoted here; you’re telling me shit like Ildjarn isn’t repetitive, predictable and one-note? lol, “me me me”, the guy even has photos of himself on the album cover, names himself after the music, not to mention the attention grabbing corpsepaint circus of black metal as a whole.

    Fucking bizarre how you picked a harmless wallpaper music song and tried to extrapolate something out of it when whoever made it did it for shits and giggles. I bet that, unlike your monotone metal bands, there are no other songs on this dude’s record that sound like this one and they’re all varied.

  22. bloop2 says:

    actually the song is pretty good and does change a lot, it’s a lot more varied than most of the bands praised here, you tin-eared dum dum boors just can’t hear or understand it becaues your senses have been brutalized by beating bashed over the head with blastbeats and chugs

    See ANUS haterfags? There can also be quality trolling.

    Well, I like to think of us all as a tight bundle in the ANUS.

  36. just reminding you that you're a loser and you should kill yourself says:

    Why don’t you have a girlfriend?

    Oh, shit. Wait. I know. It’s because you’re a wreck, both mentally and physically, and emotionally stunted. You think you’re smarter and more intelligent than everyone around you, and therefore rationalize your own lack of success as a laughably absurd conspiracy theory wherein the world has passed you over because you’re somehow too edgy for the mainstream masses to understand.

    Or maybe you just tell yourself and others that you “don’t give a shit” in a desperate attempt to make it hurt less when you see yourself getting older, fatter, and more out of touch while those you look down on are adapting to suit the needs of the world, and learning their limitations while you childishly deny your own.

    Perhaps you have taken to telling yourself that women are only interested in “Alpha Males”, those that reside at the top of a scale that only you adhere to, and it is THIS rigid table of identity that is holding you back, and allowing society to pigeonhole you. Perhaps you tell yourself that people don’t share your very narrow range of hobbies and interests aren’t (or wouldn’t be) interested in you, and therefore do not even try to engage them. In actuality these are all mechanisms that allow you to blame your own failings on everyone around you, and project your own narrow minded perceptions onto society as a whole.

    You instead choose the easy option of sitting at your computer all day, shielded by the anonymity of the internet, screaming abuse and nitpicking about the goals and achievements of your betters while arguing the tiniest deviation in the interests of your peers from your own with a startling lack of understanding and empathy. They are the only other people on Earth that you can relate to, and you hate them because they like slightly different things.

    Oh yeah. That’s why you don’t have a girlfriend. I forgot, for a moment.

  37. truth says:

    I don’t have a girlfriend because I’m a fag!

  44. Queero Mc Hungo @ just reminding you that you're a loser and you should kill yourself says:

    > Oh yeah. That’s why you don’t have a girlfriend. I forgot, for a moment

    I don’t have girlfriend because my big giant cock only fits masculine rectums you dummy. I’m gay and loving it.

    Remember that closets are for clothes not for people that enjoy living.

    Homosexuality is god’s way of insuring that the truly gifted aren’t burdened with children. That means I can caress the inside of your rectum with compassionate frenzy, bathe your insides with my hot cumm and you won’t have to worry about taking the pill!

    I don’t mind straight people as long as they act gay in public.
    I hate metal music except for indie metal like Mastodon though I hate Pantera. I can tell who is gay and who’s not, and you are gay honey so welcome to my club!!

  45. tiny midget says:

    I want to ask all of you trolls on this blog one thing:

    I have a video of Levy_Spearmen’s mom naked with a cucumber up her pussy. How many of you guys would like to see the video?

  46. Not_Levy_Spearmen says:

    I’ll be there in a minute, bro.

  47. Also_Not_Levy_Spearmen says:

    Make sure it’s a really big cucumber, and also that there’s this song in the background. Then it’ll be ANUS for the ages.

  48. Asperger's Activism says:

    I might tune in for an interracial gangbang to the gentle sounds of Dragonforce.

    The horrible hipster music in the video will never be remembered by anyone important. It’s wallpaper. Trend, core, mosh, fun, etc.

  49. bump says:

    I don’t think anyone cares bro, it wasn’t supposed to be put on a pedestal as some achievement of “high nihilistic art” or some shit. There’s plenty of ultra-shit metal that hasn’t been remembered either.

  50. bump says:

    Oh, and this vid is much better than both that ultra-shit metal and any of the bullshit stuffing up the “top tens” here.

  51. @ bump says:
