QuoteArtists Goat Artist bio:birthed in the dark auto wastelands of michigan, the distant echoes of mechanical failures haunted the beasts, futility as faith deemed it necessary to offer sonic homages to these deceased chambers of man's greatest folly,the black metal that was left in these luddite cathedrals' catacombs, was procured by shadowy figures then manipulated by renegade monks into twisted alchemical metal dirges, these early hymns were offered with little fanfare, but slowly the spirit of truth was exposed and pretenders and charlatans fell by the wayside, through pilgramages and trials the energies became focused, the offering of a sacrifice of failure actually empowered, realizing that metal cannot be subdued,, this sonic ordeal, this capricorn of which motorhead offered praise, started usurping the infidels, seasons were weathered, this forbidden has risen as goat, upon which the sins of all technology, and all fools that worship these graven images of hubric progress shall be sonically cleansed
QuoteArtists Bacillus Artist bio:Since 1993 Bacillus has been spreading virulent sonic pathogens on an unsuspecting population. It serves as the vanguard to the retaliation of nature against the rampant overpopulation, pollution and consumption of humankind. The current standard practice of medicine and disease control is severely lacking, leaving much of the public immunodeficient and vulnerable to epidemic disasters. More and more diseases are becoming drug-resistant through overuse of antibiotics, leaving people with little options to combat the more virulent and fatal strains that are cropping up on a more regular basis. In 1997 the laboratories that monitor, study and catalog the constantly mutating strains from Bacillus moved from Ohio to Seattle where the hot zone of activity is currently centered. Bacillus went into a five-year remission from 1998 to 2003, but has since re-emerged with renewed strength. There is no known cure against Bacillus and there is nothing in development.
Quote from: Bloated Slutbag on January 31, 2010, 04:07:56 PMI wonder if we could expand this topic with a few more examples? The liner notes to The Nordic Miracle's cd debut wax manifesto-ish. Title? "We Shall Provide" - now thet's what I call statement of intent!Though it's very hard to top the Taint manifesto/slogan/raison d'etre, one that still keeps me warm at night:"Perversion at all costs!"
Quote from: FreakAnimalFinland on January 31, 2010, 02:08:48 PMI have prepared some texts in past and pretty recently what could be basis of manifesto, but in the end, their function is more of clarification of intent on personal basis, rather than for outsiders.
Quote from: ConcreteMascara on February 04, 2010, 10:48:52 AMExactly because otherwise it becomes a redundant reiteration of old ideas. There was a time when new ideas were happening rapidly. Now it seems that many artists are trying to recapture a spirit that has passed by. There are less new forms, but many more ghosts of former ideas.
