  1. Apparently messages now have to be approved in the Metal thread, which means you'll get the message here so that in case it doesn't go through, it hasn't been a complete waste of time.

     

    But I found your take on the Mgla situation fairly ridiculous, it actually warranted me to sign in. Haha.

     

    If there's a Nazi at the table and you're absolutely certain he's a Nazi, as in, he doesn't just disagree with you politically and actually wears a proper, shiny and glorious Nazi uniform. (They did get their uniforms right) Then I can pretty much confirm that there aren't going to be 10 people around the table talking to the dude, and if there were, it'd merely have been out of curiosity as in.. the guy is wearing a ridiculously nice uniform.

     

    Now, if I'm at the bar and there's a Nazi (which we somehow have 100% confirmed is true) then I'd immediately try to have a debate with the dude, to see where he's coming from and why he happens to come from that place, and then I'd probably offer him a healthier outlook on life, but according to you, I'd be a Nazi simply for being the type who happens to be into debating someone I happen to disagree with. I'm also certain you'd want to make fun of me for "wanting to see where he's coming from" But dude, that's just kind of how life works. If somebody's wrong, you don't enforce their beliefs further by not even allowing them to speak. That does nothing good and it never has done.

     

    While I don't know the dude from Mgla, but certainly adore the music. I can more or less say with certainty that the guy is just metal to the bone. Metal has always been about being shocking, satanic and vile, especially on the extreme end of the scale. As a metal fan, which I'd assume you are, given the thread we're in, you should clearly know that metal likes to offend and push boundaries.  Which is why I'm telling you that it's very unlikely that the dude is a Nazi, he also happens to be from Poland, so he probably has a pretty decent understand of what went down there. I mean, shit.. looking at their lyrics they they seem fairly nihilistic, so if the guy doesn't care for jews, I can't imagine he cares much about his own race or gender either.

     

    Metal has talked about stabbing women in the cunt, beheading them and raping their headless bodies, and you were okay with that all along.

    But now that we have a dude who is approaching a different kind of shock value, you find it too much to take.

     

    You are being a hypocrite here, and deep down I believe that you also know this, but this whole "Nazi" thing seems to have become the go to topic of the world at this point. And in many ways, you do us all a disservice by throwing the term around so loosely, since it has reached the point where the word is losing its meaning.

    There is such a thing as outrage culture, and while you don't seem to be interested in Mgla, I can more or less say with certainty that they don't want you listening to them either, if this a decent portrayal of the things you actually happen to take issue with. People are complex man, all it'd take is for you to meet the dude and actually ask him where's trying to come from. But it does feel as if you've put this guy on some kind of shit list. (You won't even listen to the music, so you feel very strongly about this, clearly)

     

    And if that's truly where you stand, I say go for it. If you can't be arsed to listen to Mgla, then by all means, don't listen to them.  But you can at least have the basic  decency to not spread this kind of shit on the internet. You act as if this dude has somehow been picked as Hitler's second in command and that he's been put on trial for war crimes.

     

    It's merely shock value, and you're the living proof that this works for them, assuming that's even their goal. Everything I've seen tied to this statement of them being Nazis has been fairly weak at best.

    Try to at least see that everything doesn't have to be black and white, there's a fairly obvious grey area here as far as I'm concerned, and metal is best when it's in the grey area.

     

    Cattle Decapitation has a song called Forced Gender Reassignment and the pictures that song paints happen to be far more grim than any dude who might feel like some jews might have too big of a bank account. Which probably is about as far as your wanna-be nazis often go. You'd have to dig deep in the forest to find people who actually believe that they should be exterminated.

     

    People have always liked to point the finger. That's what happened in Germany back then, the history is fairly well documented.

     

    You're pointing the finger at Mgla, I'm pointing the finger at you. Hell, I'm spending time writing something that very likely isn't going to change anyone's mind seeing as yours appear to be set already,  but I like to debate people I disagree with.

     

    And while I'm certainly not the type to really want to censor shit. I wish this topic could be left alone as it always seems to sneak its way into this thread. Now if the dude ever comes out in support of Hitler, then I think that'd be something worthwhile to bring up, but these sorts of assumptions with nothing to show for it.. I  feel like the metal community can do better than that. We've been through this since the genre became a thing. People judged  how I presented myself and had assumptions about metal, just as you've got assumptions about Mgla. And it's human to have an assumption, I'm not blaming you there, I do it all the time. But I think it goes too far when we accuse people of something we really don't know a thing about.

  2. Men have been flirty from the dawn of time, so no, you're not going to convince me at all. Now if we're talking rape, it's very much a different story. But you have yet to give me the list of people who have been rightfully accused.
  3. And how many guilty people have been Me Too'd? I don't see the evidence. Take into account the damage that has been caused as a result of people jumping on that bandwagon, there are a TON of people who have been accused for sexually harassing someone simply for giving someone a compliment, or a chick who lacked the spine to simply say she wasn't interested. People love to be victims.
  4. In regards to seeing MJK through a different set of eyes, that was indeed exactly what was done. Doby shared a Reddit post that went quite into detail about how this accusation seemingly doesn't hold much water at all. I can't claim that MJK is completely innocent since I don't have the answers. (Despite the joke I made regarding the video I posted earlier) I don't think the guy has shown himself to be insufferable in the slightest. The dude he's been replying to is the definition of a hypocrite, he pointed out perfectly why that's the case.
  5. Yeah, that's not a weird take at all. It's so strange to see how large in numbers you pot meet kettle folk are.
  6. I don't believe it's a weird take at all. It's quite apparent and obvious at this point that #MeToo gives no fucks about innocence until proven guilty. Otherwise I'd agree, of course a victim deserves to be heard.
  7. No need, the thread can be used for what it was intended to be used for from now on. The way I see it, he should've created a new thread by the name of "#MeToo collect vinyl" - Where they can sling accusations around about every artist who has ever walked the planet.
  8. Welcome to you too. #MeToo isn't the positive thing you've heard it is from the media, those of us who've been on the internet for a while are aware of this by now.
  9. Yeah, I think this is YOU enjoying siding with what very much strikes me as empty accusations simply because you don't like the guy. If I had the fame he had, I'd have gotten my dick quite wet too, just as most "rock stars" have. It's not that the guy doesn't give a shit about his fans, it's that he doesn't want them to suck his dick 24/7 (That's reserved for the groupies.)
  10. Just a tad, you don't think this has gone too far for long enough?
  11. Did you even read this horseshit? The constant use of the hashtag "MeToo" was enough for me to question her motives here. I did also find it rather odd that she was"traumatized" enough to colour up her Twitter profile a little to pander to #MeToo before she addressed the "issue" at hand. Not buying this, at all. With that said, if it turns out Maynard has been doing these things, then he should get the appropriate punishment. You'd think a 17 year old would be able to say no though, I know I would've.
  12. Today is a glorious day. Thanks for keeping everyone updated, I wasn't on this site but I was fortunate enough to check my Facebook today, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten the CD edition, guaranteed. Can't wait to listen to this.
  13. The Solipsis promo material being sent with the first 100 orders is such a big deal. I'm assuming the material in question is this release http://rateyourmusic.com/release/unauth/the_angelic_process/solipsistic/ Which has some absolutely fantastic songs on it, I'm honestly dying to hear how they're going to sound in CD/FLAC quality, considering there's only a low quality version of it available. If I don't get to be one of the first 100 ( Just the thought of it is making me anxious, seriously, The Angelic Process is the best band to ever graze this planet) - I can only hope that they will at least do a Bandcamp digital release of it. There is only one slightly disappointing aspect to this box set so far, and that is the lack of the CD bonus tracks of ...And Your Blood Is Full Of Honey, those tracks being Hang Him Higher and Cages Of Blood And Bone, both of which are absolutely ethereal and brilliant, ugh, I'm getting goosebumps just from mentioning them. https://www.discogs.com/The-Angelic-Process-And-Your-Blood-Is-Full-Of-Honey/release/915184 They released ...And Your Blood Is Full Of Honey with the new artwork on Bandcamp very recently, and as you can see, it's missing the bonus tracks which can be found on the physical CD. https://burningworldrecords.bandcamp.com/album/and-your-blood-is-full-of-honey With that said, I am pumped to finally get my hands on both the debut album and the Sigh EP, I consider that EP to be their very best work, although I'd take any of their material over basically everything else any day of the week. The passing of Kris is the most tragic loss in the history of music as far as I'm concerned, and to see how unkown they really are will forever boggle my mind. They were and still are an absolute treasure and it's simply a pleasure to be among the lucky few to have discovered them. ALSO: That FUCKING explosion of a part at 3:55 of this song. It incinerates your entire face and proceeds to burn away at your soul. A tier of its own which I don't see any artist ever topping.
  14. My love for Chris Corner is infinite. One of the greatest musicians going. That Metanoia Addendum is unfuckwithable. His music has aged like a fine wine, constantly evolving and surprising me.
  15. Greatest industrial group to ever graze this planet. I can't think of a band more deserving of a (hopefully) complete discography reissued on vinyl.
  16. The album artwork reminds me of the Split soundtrack strangely. I dig it.
  17. Apparently yeah. I'll use my right to say what I feel here. Your opinion is utter shit.
  18. Thanks. I have the Back To Black pressing, which I've never actually given a listen, so I'm curious as to how that one sounds. I'm looking forward to the remaster though.
  19. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the sound quality once you've had some time with it. I consider this record to be quite legendary.
  20. How has the sound quality of the recent Death re-issues been thus far? Human is one of my favourite releases of all time, and it's a no brainer for me if it turns out to be a fantastic pressing.
