    The CA Metal Militia! For skull crushing brutality come here!

    Join the moshpit of conceptart with the Metal Militia! This is an idea we were talking about in the "metal fans?" thread.
    This would be a "club" were people can meet to talk about metal and stuff like that. I guess we could have activities as well.
    Ideas:
    A weekly activity like Nightmare of the Week or Teen Challenge where we can take a metal song and paint something representing it, ie Angel of Death (slayer) and we would paint an angel of death.
    An IRC and/or a Ventrilo meet up so we can talk about metal.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    'Pumped with fluid, inside your brain
    Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes
    Burning flesh, drips away
    Test of heat burns your skin, your mind starts to boil
    Frigid cold, cracks your limbs
    How long can you last
    In this frozen water burial?
    Sewn together, joining heads
    Just a matter of time
    til you rip yourselves apart'

    I foresee a ton of ridiculous illustrations to go along with Slayer's ridiculous lyrics. Anyone heard Tori Amos' "cover" of Raining Blood? That was... interesting...

    i dunno, i don't like most modern metal these days, i prefer alot fo stuff from the 80's to the early 90s.

    the 80s was a big time and that's when it was so popular.
    that was when they had good album covers that where hand painted and drawn. not cheap photoshop works.

    music is so over-produced these days, i just like it in it's raw form, no filtering and unreal sound quality.

    by the way, i'm doing a piece in vain of the 80's style album covers.

    to be honest, lets not make this a debate about religion or just don't post in here again, because we don't need that kind of attitude in here.

    So don't be. I listen to almost exclusively Christian metal (save for Dragonforce, who I don't really listen to anymore anyway).

    Metal has always been provocative... if someone can`t deal with rather "special" topics this someone shouldn`t participate in a group called Metal Militia xD

    So , whats our first song now ? Please don`t forget that not all of us have every song...tho` i guess Slayers works are easily found on youtube *g*

    Motorhead - Hellraiser?

    It's got a little bit of satan, a little bit of cenobite, a little bit of Lemmy's moles...? Eh eh?

    Actually, historical speaking thats not satan. Thats a ripped of version of the greek god Pan wich the church in the middle ages used to illustrate satan. Pan was a symbol for the barbaric instincts every human has, and because of that he is a perfect symbol for the chaos in ones soul. And thats the area that satan uses to corrupt someone.

    The pentagram is actually a symbol that means perfection, and was used in alot of civilizations before Christianity. Later on it was seen as a symbol of heathens, and it took some centuries before some guy with power (Constantin the great I think?) declared it as such.

    The reversed pentagram is something closer to our time and comes from somewhere in the 19th century I think. However its prolly much more a logo then a real symbol. (if the normal one stands for perfection, the reversed one stands for imperfection)

    So to make it short, the symbols you think that are associated to satan right now, are just human made fabrications to give a face to something we actually know nothing about.

    Anyway, METAL!!!!!

    Ya or something like Concept Inspired by Song of the week?
    Should we vote on what song to do or should we have someone set it all up/choose the song every week or every other week?
    Should we have a chat night? Either IRC or Ventrilo.

    Why not just have a little chat meeting? Sounds easiest.

    Not everybody is going to be able to join the chats. At least I won't, I would prefer people suggest songs in this thread, and then we make a poll or something about it! Would this thread change to the community activities area?

    An idea of an activity:
    Illustrate, in a comic book fashion, the lyrics of a certain metal song! It would take a bit to do, but I'd love to see what people come up with!
