The True Spirit of Heavy Metal - The Golden Age 1983 - 1991


I HAVE TO WRITE THIS DOWN NOW OR I'LL FORGET.    THE WAY THAT PEOPLE'S MINDS HAVE BEEN KILLED -- OVER TIME...HOW THEY'VE BEEN TRICKED INTO SELLING THEIR SOULS AND DENYING THEIR OWN HUMANITY... IT IS BECAUSE WE ARE UNDER ATTACK - THEY ARE LOBOTOMIZING US WITH SILENT WEAPONS.  THEY ATTACK US WITH SITUATIONS AND CHEMICALS.  THEY WANT TO GET EACH AND EVERY HUMAN OUT OF THE POSSIBILITY OF FINDING OUT HOW TO CHANNEL THE CREATIVE PART IN THEMSELVES AND FOCUS ONLY ON EARNING THE TRUST OF THEIR MASTERS AND GAINING POWER OVER OTHERS.    THERE ARE SO MANY FACTORS IN YOUR WAKE-UP.  YOU DIDN'T JUST GET IT.   YOUR WHOLE LIFE YOU WERE HEADED HERE TO THIS STATE OF MIND.  LIKE FOR EXAMPLE FOR ME IT WAS THE FACT THAT I STUDIED GUITAR ON MY OWN  BY EAR WITH ONLY SPARSE LESSONS HERE AND THERE FROM VARIOUS TEACHERS FRIENDS ACQUAINTANCES HAPPENSTANCE ETC.  IT WAS THE FACT THAT I WAS DRAWN TO HEAVY METAL MUSIC EARLY ON AT A TIME WHEN IT WAS DOMINATED BY POSITIVE BRILLIANT THINKERS AND TALENTED MUSICIANS; THIS WAS BEFORE THE GIGANTIC MEDIA MERGERS OF THE 1990S.  IN DIRECT CONTRAST TO THE COMMERCIAL AND SUPERFICIAL POSER BANDS, THE HEROIC HEAVY METAL BANDS QUEENSRYCHE, MORDRED, FATES WARNING, ANNIHILATOR, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, OVERKILL, PANTERA, AND METALLICA WOULD INSPIRE AND EDUCATE ITS FANS ABOUT REAL SOCIAL ISSUES.  UNAFRAID TO EXPLORE AND EXPOSE UNPLEASANT REALITIES, WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY DELIVERING INCREDIBLY TIGHT PERFORMANCES AND BLISTERING SOLOS, WITH THE HELP OF GUITAR MAGAZINES AND COLLEGE RADIO THESE BANDS GAVE THEIR FANS AN OPPORTUNITY TO REBEL VALIANTLY AGAINST MAINSTREAM, CORPORATE RADIO-FRIENDLY "ROCK" DURING WHAT I CALL THE GOLDEN AGE OF METAL 1983-1991.

IF THERE IS A HEAVEN, AN ULTIMATE BLISS, ON THIS PLANET, IT INVOLVES POT, A STANDARD-TUNED ELECTRIC GUITAR AND AMP WITH DISTORTION, HEADPHONES, AND METALLICA'S FIRST FOUR ALBUMS. I AM TELLING YOU.  ANYONE READING THIS WHO HAS NEVER HAD THIS TYPE OF EXPERIENCE:  YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU'VE BEEN MISSING.  I URGE YOU.  DO IT.  THE LIBERATION OF THE MIND THAT TAKES PLACE IS NOT DESCRIBABLE IN WORDS.  IT HAS SAVED MANY YOUNG PEOPLE FROM HAVING THEIR SOULS CRUSHED BY MAINSTREAM SCHOOLING, PRESSURE TO "SUCCEED FINANCIALLY" AND MANY OTHER NEW WORLD ORDER MIND CONTROL DEVICES.  THROUGH THIS POWERFUL MUSIC, YOU LEARNED NEVER TO TRUST ANYONE WITH A TITLE.  YOU LEARNED TO GET YOUR AGGRESSION OUT WITH YOUR FRIENDS, NOT AGAINST THEM.  YOU LEARNED THAT THINKING FOR YOURSELF WAS THE BEST THAT YOU COULD DO.  DURING THAT GOLDEN AGE, HEAVY METAL MUSIC WAS A WIDE-OPEN DOORWAY LEADING OUT OF THE MATRIX.



AS METALLICA'S "AND JUSTICE FOR ALL" ALBUM WENT PLATINUM IN 1989, THE NEW WORLD ORDER WAS CLEARLY NOT PLEASED WITH THIS SPONTANEOUS CREATION OF SPIRITUAL ESCAPE ROUTES AWAY FROM THEIR TAVISTOCK-BASED ROCK MUSIC THEY HAD WORKED SO HARD TO FORCE UPON THE AIRWAVES.  METALLICA'S "AND JUSTICE FOR ALL," LIKE QUEENSRYCHE'S "OPERATION: MINDCRIME" ACTUALLY UNDOES THEIR PROPAGANDA AND HEALS THE MIND!  (I AM NOT JOKING)  SO METALLICA AND QUEENSRYCHE HAD TO GO, AND QUICK.  WITHIN THE NEXT THREE YEARS, THE DARK ELITE HAD PURCHASED AND TRANSFORMED THEM AND MANY OTHER ONCE-HEROIC BANDS, AND HAD ALSO MADE RADICAL AND PERMANENT CHANGES TO THE MUSIC SOUNDSCAPE. (VIACOM'S PURCHASE OF MTV; HEAVY PROMOTION OF GRUNGE, GANGSTA RAP, TECHNO; ETC.)

 

  AS I GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL IN 1992 I NOTICED A DISTURBING PATTERN OF NEARLY ALL OF MY FAVORITE BANDS SELLING OUT AND CHANGING THEIR MUSIC DRASTICALLY, WATERING IT DOWN; GONE WAS THE FORMER REVOLUTIONARY SPIRIT.  GONE WERE THE LENGTHY TWO-PART HARMONY GUITAR SOLOS.  GONE WERE THE CHARACTERISTIC OFF-TIME SIGNATURES.  THEY WERE BECOMING MAINSTREAM ROCK BANDS NOW, PLAYING ORDINARY, SIMPLE 4/4 BEATS, AND SHORT TRACK TIMES - KEEPING THEIR SONGS UNDER FOUR MINUTES.  THEIR TREASON AGAINST THEIR FANS, AGAINST HUMANITY, WAS COMPLETE, BUT DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE POWERFUL DARK MIND CONTROL FORCES AT WORK, IT WENT LARGELY UNNOTICED.  BY 1996 METALLICA SUDDENLY HAD A TOTALLY NEW GROUP OF DUMBED-DOWN, APATHETIC, COKED-UP FANS OF THEIR NEW STYLE OF MUSIC, WHICH NOW SOUNDED MORE LIKE THE ROLLING STONES THAN METALLICA.  OTHER FORMERLY REBELLIOUS BANDS BEGAN SIMILARLY SELLING PACKAGED (FALSE) REBELLION TO THE NEW DEMOGRAPHIC WITH SIMPLIFIED, TIRESOME, REPETITIVE RIFFS.

THE TRUE SPIRIT OF HEAVY METAL LIVES ON IN THE MINDS OF THE DWINDLING NUMBERS OF PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO STILL REMEMBER.


 THANK YOU JEN AND MICHAEL (ARCH ANGEL) FOR INSPIRING ME TO WRITE THIS.  SORRY ABOUT THE ALL-CAPS.

Exodus, Exciter, Nuclear Assualt, Sacred Reich, Sepultura, Destruction, Sodom, Kreator, Coroner, Hirax, Death, Death Angel, Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, Carcass, Napalm Death, and Savatage were some of the music I listened to that were anti-corporate and touched on political views.  Lost interest in Metallica after Kill Em All.  Ride the Lightning was okay. Somebody gave me a copy of Master of Puppets because of my already lost of interest.  Slayer dominated the scene.  Onslaught had some topical offerings.   Me being at the epi-centre of the Seattle Music Expolsion, I thought it was just up in the NW that metal acts were not coming throgh.  To be part of with that drivel called grunge, a couple requirements were needed.  Heroin use and bi-sexuality,  Both of which I abstain from.  My suspicions were confirmed from an unlikely source, Courtney Love had repeated or paraphrased my sentiments about what it was to be part of that scene.  That music did not represent me, I could not identify with it. I also remember a lot of coffee.  It was said to hide the pot smell.
