Quote:



Now that The Onion has published a list of the "best" metal of the decade, we can demonstrate why metal orthodoxy exists: it's designed to keep metal from being assimilated, or taken on by the larger genre of popular music as a style without ideas of its own.

People who have no important role in life like to claim to be different, unique and ironic. It's basic psychology: you'd like to be unique, but you're just a cog. So instead you become the cog who's also different. And to do that, you have to smash orthodoxy everywhere.

Most people like to mock and jeer at metal orthodoxy, and I admit I have fallen into this trap in the past, but now I see why it exists -- and I agree with it. Keep metal metal, not another flavor of rock, like how corporations buy up a small brand and then use it as a label to stick on the same old stuff, with artificial flavoring to make it seem "unique."

In (unpopular) defense of metal orthodoxy...


Lotta words. But relevant to you diehards out there.

Wow. Hard to believe that two ANUSites agree exactly with what ANUS says. I would never have imagined such blind acceptance of the word of Prozak from his internet personas/minions. Rolling Eyes

Sorry, sir, I've never been ANUSite. I never admeired Burzum (except for the church burning). I never liked Morpheus Descends too much. Massacra, titled as best death metal realease is good for me, but not the best. Anyway, I never opposed Prozak for what he's been doing, since his skills of transmiting instinct to verbal level impresed me all the time.
What is this shit about following whatever what ANUS say? They always give me good ideas, but it is for ME to decide. OK?
But this article really relvealed something for me. On the verbal level.

Plus: these two bolttles of wine don't help me//

Either that, or we just agree with him. Also: you're so 1996. There are multiple writers on the site at this time.

Serious question -- are you trying to make NWN descend to FMP level? Disagree with the article, but whining about ANUS just makes it seem very... FMP.

Too many acronyms, obviously boring internet shit. Back to listening to metal.

...Ah, that's better.
