Given the somewhat infuriating news surrounding my home state heroes Divinity Destroyed and their battle with uptight face-savers who hide behind the mommy's skirt of half-assed ideologies, my song of the moment is thus "Sweet Heresy" by Divinity Destroyed.

http://www.divinitydestroyed.com

No more words

Rise
And take your place beside me in all that I've built in disgrace
Grace the halls with curdling calls and watch the sky
The kingdom falls
Blight
Make haste your retreat
Make it with tact, make it discreet
Flood the world, drown the strife, and wash away this tainted life

Taunt the sane
Pinch the vein
Strike the night and scream at the rain
The more I know, the more I hate
Thus begins the Inside

Brick by brick
I begin to rebuild my temple of mourning instilled
Sing us a song for those who have passed
Those who have learned, those who were last
I will ride the changing tide
Start at the end and walk to the sun
Know that you've passed
Know that you've won

Taunt the sane
Pinch the vein
Strike the night and scream at the rain
The more I know, the more I hate
Thus begins the Inside

Sacrifice my right to rot
My chance to heal
My one escape
It's crashing down
I know the sound of pestilence
Of children screaming out

I know you and have seen what you do
I alone
I will not compromise how much pain I inflict

Sovereignty
My paradise burnt down
Effigy, I ask of thee,
"O Heresy, sweet Heresy, you've seen the gates. Now lead me through them"

One more day left to play
Where's the love?
Where's the blood?
I refuse to believe that this is all there is

I feel no shame
I place no blame
Although you've changed, I feel the same

Brian Eno - The Belldog.

If Ambient 1 was music for airports, and if On Land was music for dark nights and staring down chasms, then After the Heat is music for... something apocalyptic, and something firmly rooted in beige-colored computer labs full of legacy stuff from the 1980s. Acoustic modems and crap.

Quote
Most of the day
We were at the machinery
In the dark sheds
That the seasons ignore
I held the levers that guided the signals to the radio
But the words I receive, random code, broken fragments from before.

Out in the trees
My reason deserting me
All the dark stars
Cluster over the bay.

Then in a certain moment
I lose control and at last I am part of the machinery.

(the belldog) where are you?
And the light disappears
As the world makes itís circle through the sky.


Sort of bizarre imagery. A man working at a machine in a dark shed, somewhere in a forest that's completely isolated from seasons and time and whatnot; perhaps locked in nighttime forever.

The story behind the phrase "belldog" is sort of weird too. Apparently, Eno heard some street performer belting out, "Belldog, where are you?" in a song, and then Eno wondered who or what the Belldog was, and why it hadn't come yet. It's just one of those odd, half-seen moments of surreality through mundanity.

Actually, I think the cover art for After the Heat fits this song perfectly. It's a very, very far view of a forest by a lake, with a single light in the middle of it.

King Crimson - A Man. A City.

Any fan of the 1969 era of King Crimson needs to get Epitaph right now.

Bruce Dickinson - Wicker Man

Much better than the different song with the same title by Maiden.

Nemmet, as far as KC goes, I, uh, don't like Red much, but I really like their first album. Based on that, any further recommendations?

Red takes patience but is very much worth it, but you might like Starless and Bible Black better. It sounds similar to Red, except it's a bit more accessible, and with a bit more tasteful improvs. It's definitely a must if only for Fracture, Trio and The Night Watch.

You might want to check out In the Wake of Poseidon, but be warned that it sounds a bit too similar to the first album. A lot of people seem to like it, though. For something completely different, get Discipline. It's very good with a sort of early '80s sound, and you might also want to check out Beat as well.

Danzig - Sistinas

I've been listening to a lot of Danzig lately, which is kinda odd for me.  I remember seeing the video for this song a lot on Headbanger's Ball back in the day.  The homoeroticism is second only to Priest's "Hot Rockin" video. :P

"Bypass the Solenoid" by Dysrhythmia.  It's an instrumental tune, so no lyrics for you.  It's off their new album Barriers & Passages, and it is an awesome album.  The songs are generally shorter than on Pretest, but no less intricate and there are some really heavy riffs in this album.  There are also the really slow songs like "Luminous."  

Colin Marston is one sickeningly fast bassist, but he's not all speed; he handles his speed with amazing finesse.  Wow!  

Dysrhythmia= one of Neal's favorite bands.  I love Dysrhythmia.  I love their song titles too.  Very creative.
