I recently got into Deicide, not sure why I like them a lot. But this documentary is a lot about them and stuff I dunno have any of you seen it? and what is your view on kids taking their music a little to far? Is joining the Occult while listening to death metal the same as getting spinners when you listen to rap?

I saw it on the tv guide channel. Didn't bother watching.

I'm a huge deathmetal fan myself
Yeh I recently discovered them, and I thought it was eerie how this was on just a few days later about them lol... My band is covering "Scars of the Crucifix" at my show...


You should watch it, It's pretty good.. It's crazy what some kids do.

Yeah I thought that too..because I just started really getting into metal this summer. There was something on VH1 the other day on a similar subject.

It's weird..cuz at the same time in the morning there are shows about the presidents on the history channel...and this morning it was on mckinley and we talked about him in class today.

i dunno.

Word.

I've always listened to metal, not really anything "satanic" though... I'm not really sure why I like it. I don't take any of it serious. I guess I just like the way it sounds.

Well, joining something like the Occult is like a complete lifestyle change... Something I would never do.. Of course I listen to my fair share of rap too and I don't have spinners...although I do have a "system" in my car.

I haven't seen the special so I don't know how accurate it is and can't judge it.

But about cults/doing "occult" things can be looked at in two ways....

1. the people doing this don't understand the music
2. the people doing it aren't serious and the special doesn't understand that

Death metal is a very interesting thing that few people (even many who claim to be into it) understand. I'm just going to assume that the documentary does a sub-par job of showing it as it really is....but once again, I didn't see it. I'll have to keep my eyes open for a rerun of it.

Yeah, and I watch Discovery quite a bit actually so I'm sure I'll see it eventually.

...well, maybe not. They aired a show "Ape to Man" probably a year ago that I really wanted to watch and I've never seen it still. Similar shows, but not that one.

EDIT: On a side note VH1 "metal" specials are not very good. They are factual, but don't often look at ANYTHING metal. Watch them with this in mind. In the 80's there WAS an "underground metal" scene, and this was the real metal. Motely Crue and Poison and the like are NOT metal. Real metal in the 80's was all thrash/speed metal and the beginnings of death metal.

No dude, the documentary the other day was the real deal. Made by a metalhead for metalheads. It's ****ing good, I suggest actually renting/buying the DVD so you can get the extras too. It's called Metal: A Headbanger's Journey.

I've heard of A Headbangers Journey....heard mixed things. From most I've heard that it was decent, but still had some things messed up with it. I forgot that that one was going to be on VH1. I still stand by most everything else "metal" related on VH1 being garbage, though. I've heard it was at least worth a download, though...so I might do that.

i can't agree that a kid joining an occult is the same as a kid getting spinners and listenig to rap. rap is mainstream music, and a clothing style. its in pop culture everywhere. death metal and the occult are things our society views as a negative thing, where as like rap and ghetto style we embrace it. so a kid is doing it for different reasons, and might not be as serious.

The idea is the same, though, while it may be a little more extreme.

A kid getting into occult stuff due to finding death metal bands is just because it's "cool" and as mindless as a kid buying spinners. They obviously don't get death metal just like the kid getting spinners doesn't understand real hip-hop.

I saw the commercial for it, and well I dl'ed the torrent.
:naughty


It was very good, no mainstreamers trying to do a corny show on "rock and roll." Their explanation of what metal is about is very good. While I'm only partly personally effected by most things they mention, I really metal because of the riffs and drums and ****.


The thead is titled wrong...The doc covers all metal.

The full sub-genre chart is amazing! lol.

O, and BTW, I love Lemmy. :) \m/
