There are three kinds of people in the world: Those who love black metal, those who are scared of it, and those who find it funny.

How can you be scared of any type of music, unless of corse you are a Jew in which case you would probably run away from people when they start humming the Valkyrie.

It must be one of the effects of the most awful Holocaust; any type of culture traumatizes Jews! I guarantee you if you go up to a Jew and start talking about Richard Wagner they burst in to tears, it’s a shame the Jewish community cannot appreciate such things as Parsifal or the ring cycle.

The reason for prohibiting the performance of the above-mentioned operas was that he and his party officials deemed us too silly to form our own picture about them and the messages and ideas they convey. Fortunately, the Führer, being more intelligent and educated than everyone of us, and having a patent on the truth, recognized the danger and protected us from being mislead.

Some speculations on the considerations that lead to the ban of Parsifal here:

Prospero, people can be "scared" of a type of music. Some people are scared of the image, or in the case of black metal the history behind it (church burnings, murder)...or they can just think they dress scary :D

But I was just wondering if there are more kinds of people in this world, if you are defining them through their attitudes to black metal. Perhaps there should be a seperate category for those who just plain hate it, or those who are indifferent (though I think everyone has to have some sort of reaction to something)

I have not heard much of this type of music, but the little I have heard sounded like an audible rendition of the biological processes responsible for mental retardation. People with no musical talent screaming about self-mutilation and necrophilia.
These 'artists' should have their tongues ripped out as punishment for doing the vocal equivalent of taking a sh*t in my ears. Actually they'd probably sound better without tongues, so scratch that idea.
Since so many of these genetic throwbacks seem to love 'the Devil', why don't they all do the world a favour and go to hell? The quickest way there is a bullet through the head.

Is there such a thing as black metal performed by people with actual musical talent who sing about things other than sexual perversion, murder, and satan? If so, recommend some for me (and anyone else who may be interested, of course). I'll have a listen and see if it sounds any better than the little I've been exposed to.

Many of them did, and one in particular I can think of through that very method!

Yes, check out Emperor for start. You have to have a lot of talent to play black metal...can you play guitar that fast or scream/sing like that?! HMM? NO??? thought so! lol You have to have a certain mentality to be into this music...an extreme one I guess! :D First time I heard it I didnt care for it at all....but once you become into it you start to pick up on the composition of the songs and you start to notice a lot of it is like classical music played loud and fast.

Of course, I also like some of the bands that sing harsh lyrics about satan, sexual perversion, or murder. But I guess to each their own x_hehe

Definitely.
Taake comes to mind first. probably my favorite true black metal band. very FOLK influenced. Arckanum is great though I dont think that Shamantee (ex Grotesque) is doing that project anymore. Trelldom released a wonderful cd called Til et Annet that featured Ghaal on vocals, though I am not sure if that was a project or not. For those who like Emperors talent but hate their concept and stupid image (I am one of those people), check out Nokturnul Mortum (there is also a much different side project from that band called Aryan Terrorism which is GREAT). NM are musically very similar to Emperor, but with NS concepts.

Ho could I forget Nagelfar. Excellently executed BM from Deutschland.

I have almost zero tolerance for that kind of crap. Metal Blade (for many many many reasons besides this one) should crumble to the ground for all of the musical feces it has forcefed the metal underground since its inception. And, as ever trendhopping as it is, has of late decided to release album after album of Blind Guardian/Hammerfall/Helloween type homosexuality upon the metal underground.

Also, you may want to check lostdisciple.com, redstream.org

Of course not.
Weren't you also the person who said that it was OK for 'white nationalists' to watch TV because they could 'filter out' the egalitarian propaganda?
If you do not understand why indulging in pop-culture is counterproductive, you will not understand why disharmonious chaos masquerading as music is something to be fought.

NOTE FOR SLOW PEOPLE: I am basing my views of black metal on the admittedly LITTLE I have heard. I mentioned this before but some failed to comprehend, so I am restating it now.

It sounds like something I would say, though I don't know how long ago! Indulging in "pop-culture" is entertainment for me. Is entertainment necessarily counterproductive? So I shouldn't watch the movies I like and not listen to the kind of music I like?

You should keep in mind that it is YOUR opinion that black metal is "masquerading as music". To others it is good music. What do you listen to, anyway? I hope you only listen to classical and folk, and not that evil rock and roll!

I guess I don't understand how it can be counterproductive, but mostly because you haven't even explained it to me. I also don't understand how you can be libertarian about something like drugs, but have such a strict attitude about music. So popping E once in a blue is OK, but black metal is bad because it hurts your ears??

Here are some Graveland lyrics I really like...



You who have become the legend! I summon you mighty warriors!
Your power,honour and pride Shall encourage all of us.
The same blood runs in our veins.
But our brothers' minds are poisoned.
Their spirit should be purified.
Enemies' temples burnt to the ground...
We raise the swords and start new war Against the plague of foreign Gods.
Fidelity and pagan pride Will lead us to the final glory!
Nothing can deafen voice of blood.
Instinct decodes every lie.
Strong arms will soon throw down the chains
And bring the lost dignity back...
Let's raise the swords forged in blood Together with forefathers'
ghosts.
Invisible astral power Shall turn us into cruel beasts.
Immortal are the ideals for which we fight and proudly die.
There is a flameof heritage, that every man has to protect.
We are the last bastion of truth.
Those who have never betrayed their roots.
The heathen fire of our hearts
Can only raise but never go out!
We take an oath on our swords
To raise them when it's time to fight.
When alien offend our faith.
And spit on forefathers' grave...
Lyrics by: Capricornus 12/'96

I heard one song by Death in June and one by Type O Negative that I liked. I'm not sure, but I believe that they are considered Black Metal. I really wouldn't know. As for the entire genre, I wouldn't miss it if it disappeared forever.

I also love many different types of music, but Black Metal isn't one of them. Black Metal is right up there with Rap on my list of favorite music. Speed Metal, on the other hand, I like.

I guess I'm just getting too old for this stuff. I prefer CCR and Van Morrison.

I do not listen to much music, honestly. No, I am not a fan of 'rock and roll' though a few 'rock' (or 'rock inspired) bands strike a chord in me, namely 'Pink Floyd' and 'The Cure'.
Even with these bands, though, I am very picky as to what I like.

I mainly enjoy 'mood music' and 'trance music'. Some folk music is ok as well.

They are two different topics.
Why should my attitude towards music be anywhere close to my attitude towards (VERY moderate and responsible) drug use?
My reasons for having used E and my reasons for disliking pop-culture have nothing to do with each other.
You're falling into the trap of Von Braun, assuming that since I condone (again - very moderate and responsible) drug use, I therefore must be a 'punk' or 'goth' or some other cultural excrescence squeezed from the a*s of mainstream society, ready to embrace whatever freakish parody of art arises from the diseased psyches of these spiritual lepers.

Well..I'm not.

Well that's your opinion. Does being a racialist mean you can only do/enjoy something if it's Aryan? I guess it's counterproductive to eat sushi as well. But I see where you are coming from with movies and entertainment, and to an extent I agree.

As to it being negro art-forms, well I have to disagree. It is far removed from blues or jazz, etc. It's like the out of Africa theory, except for music :ultrawink Also, they didn't invent the guitar, but if they did -so what? It's a great invention! I don't feel the need to purge my life of everything non-European.


Correct. Unless you enjoy being a hypocrite.

That does not necessarily make me a hypocrite. I do not have the same beliefs as you, maybe you would be a hypocrite feeling the way you do about movies, etc, yet still watching them, but that does not make me the same way at all.

I did not assume that you are punk or goth or anything. But you are right, how you feel about drugs and music are two different things. I guess I just found it strange that you would be liberal towards drugs but have this opinion on music, thats all, which was wrong.


That, and because it is just noise without a soul.

Ok, I could go on and on forever about how I feel that statement is so wrong. But I won't because you don't know what you are talking about. I'm not trying to make you like this music, I just think you have many misconceptions about it. On one hand you admit you don't know much about it, and then you make bold statements like that! Have you walked through the park late at night when the moon is out listening to Graveland? In me this music invokes emotion and soul, it may not for you, and that's fine. Just don't tell me it's noise without soul, that is something totally personal! You are a spirituality dictator! LOL :D

Did you ever listen into Smith's 1983 side project 'Blue Sunshine'?

blue sunshine? do you mean the album by The Glove,the band which had robert smith and steve severin in it?

do you like the smiths? im a bit of a morrissey and smiths obsessive! i got to see Morrissey in october,it was brilliant - so brilliant that i nearly fell off the balcony to my death throughout the night :D
im still hoping ill get to see the cure one day.....i remember reading Robert Smith saying that if they broke up they wouldnt say it publically,they would just disappear-im always worried they'll do that and i'll NEVER get to see them in action :eek:

Now that you mention it, I'm going to put on some Bauhaus myself actually!

Hello and welcome to Sprockets! I am Dieter, and this is Klaus!

And now, we dance! :AWW I'm as happy as a little girl!

Did you ever listen into Smith's 1983 side project 'Blue Sunshine'?


PS. Get started. Finally, a good band discussed. If I could take only the music of one modern band onto this imaginary island, then it would be The Cure, and I wouldn't even have to think about it. ;)
In 1996, I was dragged, kicking and screaming, to a live The Cure concert. Most boring and quiet concert I have ever been to. I guess I just dont get it.

do you like the smiths?Absolutely, The Smiths are also awesome, and so are The Clash.

As it was mentioned, I also listen(ed) a lot to Bauhaus. She's in Parties evokes many old memories.

classic! Yes, it's great … On a side note, I think (hope) that my collection of The Cure covers is rather complete, too. I succeeded to dig out most of their old demos, too — all but one I think? I would have to have a look ... but it was really worth it ... "Desperate Journalist", for example, is better than the release i. m. h. o.

I listen to almost all musical genres, as long as the songs are good, artistic, of quality. There is hardly any genre or category, of which I wouldn't like at least two or three songs. My preferences probably are (were) on independent, underground, goth, punk, metal (heavy/speed), progressive metal, and then, of course, classical and contemporary classical music (ranking on top). The least I can identify with blues, jazz, rap, rave, techno, &c. — Not too much with volksmusik and marschmusik either.

The Cure never really appealed to me. Does anyone else here like AC/DC??? :thumb

Black metal might be good to listen to if I'm constipated. :poo poo
Rock music turned to absolute poopoo after the 1970's, with a few exceptions here and there. But hair bands, glam rock? - all those androgynous men and the women who loved them... :headbang :crazy

Yep. They opened for the Rolling Stones here last week. And it was my understanding that a majority of the audience came because of AC/DC. Mick Jagger is really getting old and Keith Richard looks like his own grampa. He has to screw on his hat.
