I'm really glad that an actual music major has spoken up. Beethoven, aahh yes. Have you heard 9-beat stretch by chance? someone took the 9th
symphony and stretched it out to 24 hours but used digital enhancement to retain the same notes and timbre at the correct octave, Check it out if you
haven't already: www.park.nl...
I think you are right that it is arrogant to think that you have the one musical key to the world, true. But AMT has had ex-Yakuza members. I'm sure
they know some esoteric things, if you follow the North Korean conflict you might find Japan is an integral part.

Very interesting! A lot of metal/hardcore bands that I listen to use riffs and chord progressions similar to this (most of them are in either G# or C
tuning). Funny thing is a lot of them talk about the same kind of stuff as we do here on ATS, be it NWO, meditation/opening your third eye,
There's a record label
called Sumerian Records that's full of heavy bands that write about conspiracy and end-times, and a lot of the low-end progressions they use seem to
take my mind to a different place.
This one CD I picked up the other day called "Exoplanet" by "The Contortionist" is a story line of a future human race leaving Earth to find a new
inhabitable planet, with help from the "Creator" who speaks with Earth's leader, whom he refers to as "Organism". The "Architects" construct a
ship called the "Savior" and travel outside the solar system in search of other life. They play in G# so a lot of notes they use for breakdowns are
variations of chord progressions that use these same exact notes!!!...but that's death-core music for you, haha. Could just be coincidence, but once
you go metal you stay metal!

Eastern mystics recently revealed to the West that secret societies have used specific repeated notes for centuries during rituals, that create a
resonant frequency in the brain which naturally stimulates the pineal gland, releasing '___'.
The notes are D A G D C Gb repeated. Musicians, give it a try. I've found that it does something if repeated for a length of time.
Here's a link to the Japanese musicians that leaked this knowledge in 2008 on their album "Cometary Orbital Drive":
Trust me, I love metal. Psychedelic leads to proto-metal, to progressive, and to modern various forms of metal. Some of my favorites are Sunn 0))),
Bathory, The Melvins, Earth, Immortal, Burzum, Emperor, Metallica, Megadeth, Saxon, Motorhead, Witch Finder General among others. I started a Black
Metal thread that you might be interested in: www.abovetopsecret.com...

Recently meaning when the album was released in 2008. Before that, you would only find this type of information on message boards like ATS, and maybe
in books that are unavailable in our libraries here in America.
This is awesome, thanks for sharing. Listening to it now with my Bose headphones. It's definitely enveloping the upper rear section of my brain, I
wonder what that part is called?
The whole thread is awesome! This is what makes ATS rock, threads like these.
Most of this stuff has given me a headache, maybe listen to to much to long that one Alander1111 did seemed good, so was Merl.
I have always thought that there was a perfect note that would cause a higher state to occurr, but what I refer to would be a harmonic resonance that
would cause the third eye, pineal to begain to vibrate.
When this '___' is present the high can be quite high, intra dimensional, outer universal travel so said.
One of the thing I believe interesting is that the sound came before the light, so it was said let there be light. Sound is very powerful, no doubt
the reason they have made into a weapon, and it destroyed the walls of Jericho.
Some said you might not want to open third eye, I myself douubt it would open if you were not ready, or maybe a unnatural amount of '___' could cause
it to happen.
Mantra yoga is also an example of the power of sound, again back to the vibrations.
Glad somebody posted here about Beethoven's 9th. I'm a classical composer and have studied these things for a long (heh, 40 years) time. A couple
of things pop out about this discussion; I think there are several forces at work.
1. The idea that keys have meaning. Throughout the classical period, every key had a symbolic meaning, that is, it was supposed to have special
properties. Here's a good page on that: biteyourownelbow.com...
D major: The key of triumph, of Hallejuahs, of war-cries, of victory-rejoicing. Thus, the inviting symphonies, the marches, holiday songs and
heaven-rejoicing choruses are set in this key.
One of the reasons Beethoven's 9th is soooo powerful is that it is in D Minor/Major and uses sound with these notes to create this vast emotional
Some of the greatest classical pieces in the world are in D major/minor. The Mozart piano concerto in D minor is one of the most beautiful pieces
2. As another poster pointed out, the note sequence is essentially the first 7 harmonics, that is, the way musical sound works, every sound is
comprised of a series of partials, en.wikipedia.org...
Musical sounds can be broken down in the energy distribution to be all integer ratios of a fundamental (the lowest note you hear in that sound).
This sequence is essentially comprised of those tones. (If you treat the G like a sub-harmonic or something that resonates naturally from any musical
tone). The harmonic series for D would be D1 D2 A2 D3 F#3 A C.
One interesting thing about this sequence, and the thing that it does to the '3rd eye', brain, what have you is that it creates an auditory
illusion. Any time the harmonic series is sounded repeatedly, it causes the brain to mix up what note is sounding from what just sounded and all
these notes are in these notes (as harmonics) so you get this auditory illusion of what is the sound and what is the note. It resonates in a way that
engulfs the difference between a note and a chord. (Hope that makes sense). The brain continues to hear residual harmonics as the notes sound,
creating a vaster and vaster sound field.
3. The reason that we switched from 432 to 440 wasn't any conspiracy - it was fashion. Orchestras were competing with each other and the brighter
tuning one. There's been all kinds of movements, authentic instruments, authentic tunings to try and get folks to experience the original way the
music was heard before the tunings changed.
A really good book, that keeps the new age handle on these things is Joscelyn Godwin's 'Harmonies of Heaven and Earth':
it is definetely like chanting, try checking out SGI (Soka Gakai International) it is a buddhist group that perform chanting of "nam yo ho renge
kyo". and if you chant this for a long time, especially in a large group, after about 20 mins, you can hear the resonance and the voices of everyone
combine into one,
my mom has been practising this for sometime now while my uncles have been an SGI member for at least 30 years, my uncle have been explaining to us
that soka gakai teaches everyone that we are in harmony with the universe and by chanting we are in sync with the good energy around us..
what strange is that, if you read the book from Rhonda Byrnes " Law of Attractions", she did mention that positive attracts positive (i.e if you
keep positive thinking, apparently you will attracts the positive energy around you)
i find that there is similarity between these 2, i have been chanting but not as ardent as my mom and my uncles, but i do find that it gives you some
sort of uplifting within yourself that i do not know how to explain.
SGI started in Japan, in around asia, where i come from, we do described SGI as japanese buddhism, strange isnt it ?
All are GREAT bands that I've grown up to, although recently I've taken a liking to new age metal, hardcore, deathcore, metalcore....pretty much
anything with core in it is where it's at, lol. Stuff like Molotov Solution, Born of Osiris, The Acacia Strain, Circle of Contempt,
Oceano.....Ahhh, breakdowns are awesome. Especially in G#; low, muddy, and very angry.
I first got interested in Eastern culture when my dad gave me his copy of the Tao Te Ching, which I immediately identified with more than any
Judeo-Christian religion. From there I basically got into Buddhism, read the Dhammapada, and started to think about more esoteric issues. I read The
Tibetan Book of the Dead last summer, as I had been meaning to for nearly a decade. That's a mind-blowing text. Eventually I got to finding more
obscure esoteric information about chanting, vibrational energy, and Hinduism, which really blew my mind even further (as if that was possible). I'm
interested in harnessing the vibrational power of music as a power source. Is it possible?
Ever heard these guys? They're the heaviest band in the Universe.
pretty heavy, pretty heavy... I know of some bands that can rival it. So is this music you like? What kind of music is this called? It does seem
pretty heavy in the sense that if I were really into this I'd be on some kind of trip where I actually felt really really heavy and this would totally
I have a serious thing with black metal right now. speaking of melodic black metal, there is some crazy melodies in black metal... crazy. Some of
makes me want to tear my own heart out. I'm convinced that if any music is capable of doing weird things to your brain, it's black metal. I love black
metal. I don't even know that much about it, I just listen to it and I dig it.
So has anyone figured out if these notes are in any songs rhythm? We need to figure out if these notes are the predominant rhythm of a song that
sounds decent enough to listen to repeatedly.

Theoretically speaking you can't have musical scale that includes an "A" "G" and "Gb" for the flat of G and the sharp of A are the same, choose
one or the other. And if you line them up in musical intervals it doesn't translate unless you're basing it on some type of chromatic and gypsy
minor modes because if you line up a scale starting on D for example it would be.
1D 2E 3F# 4G 5A 6B 7C# 8D
You wouldn't say A B then A b.
The scales are organized in the sense that every letter is accounted for. If you had a Gb you couldn't include a G as well as an A either the G would
be flat or the A would be Sharp.
Music theory is simple mathematics but complicated to those that don't know the formulas. If the Masons are suppose to know the Secret Teachings of
All Ages then they would that the repeating patterns of D A D G C Gb (unless you're changing keys of course, but I don't believe that is the
situation presented here) don't make sense according to Pythagoras which his musical doctrine is part of their "secrets."
