Speaking of 'Territory', I was really digging this at work of all places on Thursday.  I cannot believe how old this is, but it could have been released yesterday!

I feel so sorry for turning this place into a battleground.

I am strongly against racism myself, it is far from one's fault for the race he was born in.

For example, i am Romanian, more than half of Europe will look down on me like i come from medieval age when i tell them that, even though i do programming. 

I feel like this type of racist ***** should be discussed with by the authorities. KKK was no joke in America, it was a real problem, something similar taking place again, because of metal music would be much worse, as music is sprea throughout the world. 

I would really like for black metal to have fairy tale themes, like carach angren has. (bad choice, i think)(but at least they do not negative things, but rather show the black side of what happened and the tragedy of the people that had to live through those disasters, i like them mostly because of violins)(something with lots of un-needed gore is obscurcis romancia, they are plain fun because nothing even comes close to something that can happen. but that piano they can do is amazing)


Back to metal, i think that there are metal bands that both sound good and have high quality messages!
To name two:

With blood comes cleansing
Ark of the covenant
.

I guess that very few will like those bands.


No it's fine. These topics come up every once in a while, everyone writes the same opinions then we post vids and talk about music again for 8 months till these subjects come up again.

I remember when I had no idea that Burzum and Graveland were National Socialists. I purchased their album and loved them not knowing the political views.

Heavy Metal is about freedom, because it is made by man it will contain the duality that is man. I didn't sell off my CDs due to their political views but I most likely would not be friends with the artists.

The fact is almost all media including the news has some political agenda, metal on the other hand is more direct. The best thing is to look at it as dark poetry. Surely Cannibal Corpse does not partake in the subjects they write about.

There was a time when the subjects the Beatles talked about were edgy, now to be edgy the themes get darker and darker. I'm am totally sure there are Chaos Magic practices in much of Black Metal. There are also fake Satan worshiping bands. The thing that attracts me is the feeling of power, that is why I don't care if Black Metal is recorded thin. If I get the feeling I'm in.

Most metal listeners are just like Ozzy and have normal dysfunctional families. They live their lives and then die without hurting anyone.

What we never talk about here is the general misanthropic nature of all Black Metal!

Any member who has a large Black Metal collection is giving money to those who are against the whole human race.

This deflects any negativity that comes from unintelligible not politically correct lyrics.

As long as the music is good I rarely pay attention to lyrics. I can respect musicians, actors, directors etc. for their work, disregarding their personal opinions, because often they are total nutcases.
For example Mel Gibson makes fine movies, but is ***** in the head.

Man, pfillion, I'm happy you dig Leprous as much as I do. I like that second new song they showed off even more than the first. 
 
Like i said when I posted the first song, I think this album is a shoe in for my album of the year, which will the third Leprous album in a row to take that honor from me.
 
 
as for the rest of you....how do you guys not dig this ****?

This is a great post.
 
Reminds me of how (when I was a teenager) I used to go to sleep with In The Nightside Eclipse blaring on speakers, like a vampire or something. haha

I have a love-hate relationship with humanity: they love me, I hate them. ^‿^
 
Just kidding! lol. There are plenty of things to like and dislike about humanity. I remember reading a Limbonic Art (must-hear symphonic black metal band!) interview talking about how disappointed he was in humanity. I think lots of the misanthropy in black metal is more akin to righteous fury than being evil and whatnot for its own sake.

and considering the rash of hatred for them I figured I had to speak up...
 
 
I am really freaking digging the new Blind Guardian album. like sure I liked some of the songs off At the Edge of Time, but Beyond the Red Mirror is amazing, the whole album back to front, and the more I listen to it, the more I fall in love with it...great stuff

I was drawn to black metal by the misanthropy. Humanity has done nothing beficial to anything but themselves. Do I want humans extinct, for the most part, yes. Am I actively trying to make that happen, nope, not at all.

But if you envision the earth as a human body, we are pretty much cancer.

I've been meaning to talk to you about headphones. Didn't you used to own the SR-009? Do you like the HD 800 more? Which are your top five favorite headphones? I had the chance to get an HD 800 for $400 recently (because it wasn't in the best condition), but missed out due to having to cover moving expenses. You can see headphones I used to own and want to own on my profile.
 
(Feel free to reply to this post in the headphones for metal thread if you want to keep this thread more on-topic.)
 

 
lol. I think it's interesting how the Church of Satan is officially an atheist organization.

I should revisit it, never had it as a kid but watched a friend play through a lot of it. Turn-based RPGs are just hard for me to get into these days, once I get going I'm hooked but those first couple hours are crucial.

 
Then I'm sure you know why I mentioned it in the context. hehe. (All that new-agey planet dying because of humanity stuff.)
 
Each Final Fantasy game I've played, I've played for hundreds of hours. Turn-based strategic RPGs are by far my favorite!
