I thought this guy was ripped apart enough, but I thought I’d throw in my two cents. Music and art always have and will evolve, if that wasn’t the case, we’d all be listening to throat singing right now. There’s nothing wrong with breaking from traditional views of the music you like, and come on, man, I bet you haven’t even listened to half of this “shit”.
Mix black metal with indie rock, buttrock, shoegaze or wanking technicality and you’re gonna have a bad time.
Woah if throat singing was the only music thatd be fucking awesome… Progress really is shit…
If you believe in advancement and capitalizing on technology and obsess with the day to day over the primitive and pure then you do not truly understand “black metal” as an element.
But if you dont get the feeling of black metal then you dont get it and it doesnt matter if you do… Its not about being accepted or included and if you give a fuck what anyone thinks of the bands you align with or perform in then you dont get it and are worlds away from the “true”… Its about transcendence and being disgusting and performing and audio witchcraft… The point is to execute the spell and initiate, not anything else. That is why liturgy and deafheaven are irrelevant, they are perverting clear influences and trying to create a sort of music when black metal is something separate entirely…
The albums are “beautifully made” which is nothing black metal should be, fuck and die and wriggle and shit and then you may understand…
Did I mention that I love you?

"Isn’t this sacred vision of the homecoming the singular force which makes all our suffering bearable? Such a vision, alone, is enough to transform each ache, each woe — even in the midst of the storm — as if that blessed arrival had already come to pass. The warrior parts with what is most precious to him in order to more faithfully defend it, and is redeemed in the culmination of his life’s greatest trials, by that Valkyrie, who represents both origin and destination. She sighs, ‘Welcome home!’ — but only to those who live and die True."
— William Sumarliðr
Coffee & Cigarettes (2003) dir. by Jim Jarmusch: "An odd concept for a film, Coffee and Cigarettes can be seen as either one of two ways. On one hand a dark, clever, ingenious piece of cinema, or on the other hand a dark, clever, ingenious piece of cinema. Jim Jarmusch can’t be beaten. The dialogue seems to be mostly improvised, but the concept is not. Every short chapter here has a meaning and gives us something to think about. The films are in black and white, like coffee and cigarettes and that still is, and will always be, a way of pushing things harder. This is very much comedy and very much serious." (x)
