"I was going through your song list and one was called "hostility towards the weak"... How can that song title be anything other than a personal
belief, and emotion you have towards weakness? and thus towards those you percieve as weak? (which could be almost anything that doesnt embrace your
chaotic death worship)"
I'm not sure if you intended it to read like that, but I do not worhip death. Your assumption of the intent behind this song and it's moniker fails
you. Please read further.
"If you didnt feel this way towards weak people, and if you only like the music, than why connect the nihilistic hateful idea of hostility towards
the weak with it?"
This song is not a statement of my viewpoint towards anybody, rather a song inspired by a movie I watched about a serial killer. It made me think
about what must be going on in their minds.
"I would venture to explain thats because this type of music promotes those types of feelings"
Like I said, I'm into the music, because I like the sound. I'm not going to put prose about puppies , kitties, and flowers to this kinda stuff. I
feel it deserves a heavier, darker subject matter.
"Those who understand how emotion works, and how music can regulate, and dicatate emotion - and belief/thought, than it it can be seen how subversive
music really is.. "
I grew up playing classical music, and I get the same feelings from anything set in a minor key. I disagree with your premise that music can regulate
and dictate emotion, beliefs and thoughts. I see it as bring more a reflection of our feelings at the time. I do alot of different types of music.
Some happy, some not so much. I suppose it's reflective of the duality of our spirits, and our range of emotions. I am not scared to express both.
"Anyone who cant see how obviously evil this type of music is; promoting hate, violence and overall indecency in both lyrics and melody towards life
in general is a moron. "
Again, to each their own, and I do respect your opinion, although I could live without the Ad Hominem attack. I will disagree with you in your
premise, because I do not "promote hate, violence, and overall indecency in lyrics and melody towards life as general".Again, I wish to write about
darker subjects, because it is fascinating to me. It could be that we don't see life the same way, and that is fine.
"And im sure its just those types of people the heavy metal/death metal genre targets. Unhappy people. Unhappy people in a prosperous society
probably wont engage in acts of public violence....but take away the luxuries we all enjoy, and whats left? A person with beliefs and opinions
regulated by this satanisc, nihilistic garbage."
Interesting attempt to connect this genre of music with violence. Tell me, before this kind of music existed, were people commiting acts of violence
towards each other? Is it not more indicative of the overall ,persistent, dreary state of humanity, than the content of material we absorb? Does
life imitate art.......or vice versa?
