Carrie Giglio
36:08

Robert Haussman
37:13

Rex Buffchest
37:23
Maybe more thrash, not so much groove in my opinion...
Robert Haussman
37:30
like riding down a bumpy road
Viktor Simjanoski
37:39
more shake than bounce :)
Katie Means

Do royalties work per song, or per minute?
Batman (Evan Feldman)

Colin Jenkins
01:09:53
something sad and mournful?
Meaghan T'ao
01:10:08
black metal lyrics are just pseudo-intellectual word salad
Meaghan T'ao
01:10:10
hallmark of the genre
Akshay Kothakonda
01:10:31
which is why I don't read lyrics. problem solved
Rex Buffchest

I remember watching Metal: a Headbanger's Journey for the first time and all of a sudden they get to black metal and I'm like WTF is going on?
Joana M. F. da Trindade
01:19:21
probably an urban legend, but apparently Ace of Base was secretly a neo-nazi band as well
Katie Means
01:19:48
I HEARD THAT and was so sad. I loved The Sign the album
Viktor Simjanoski
01:19:49
it's funny that his name is Kristian :)
Meaghan T'ao
01:19:55

Joana M. F. da Trindade
01:20:01
Katie: same
Meaghan T'ao
01:20:43
gaahl AND varg are called Kristian lol
Stephen Zhang
01:20:56
plot twist: they just hated their name
Meaghan T'ao
01:20:56
(it really isn't)
Viktor Simjanoski
01:21:15
there was also a murder of 2 orthodox monks in Russia in the early 90s that was attributed to people from the metal community.
Meaghan T'ao
01:21:46
and now there's a meme orthodox polish black metal band
Rex Buffchest
01:22:22
So Christian metal?
Samuel Adams
01:22:24
this is heavy doc...
Meaghan T'ao
01:22:28
essentially
Stephen Zhang
01:22:31
idk
Meaghan T'ao
01:22:41
though there are Christian/catholic bm bands that don't use the label
Joana M. F. da Trindade
01:22:51
Meaghan: Batushka!
Meaghan T'ao

they're terrifying
Meaghan T'ao
01:23:50
and technically roman catholic
Meaghan T'ao
01:24:42
so i posit this theory: bm doesn't care about what you sing about as long as you abide by the aesthetics
Meaghan T'ao
01:25:03
yes
Meaghan T'ao
01:25:06
well imo anyway

i asked this in the chat earlier but it got buried, was the subgenre of death metal named after the band Death, or just the word “death”?
Meaghan T'ao
01:36:41
black metal is named after an album
Liz Surette
01:36:50
couple schools of thought
Liz Surette
01:37:06
it's so debateable it's pretty academic
Liz Surette
01:37:21
sounds good
