Tradition & Revolution is an enjoyable read covering a wide range of topics. The book gives a clear insight into the politics of Mr. Southgate and the wider National Anarchist and New Right movements. It is certainly to be recommended to those who have an interest in extra-parliamentary politics and those willing to engage with challenging ideas whether they agree with them or not. Those on the traditional Left would do well to read this book if they wish to develop a more deeper analysis of the NA/NR movements than merely screaming “Fascist! Fascist!” at the mention of their name.
It has been alleged that Zulawski was attempt to criticise the then incumbent Polish Communist regime, and this intense film was the result. It is possible that the supposed freedom that Jakub is given is analogous to the freedom promised by Communism which itself often resulted in heinous acts of barbarism. Once this allegorical stance was perceived then the film was banned without further question or remit, though it is the Polish Catholic Church’s accord with the Communist authorities which suggests that the true motive for the ban, was depiction of acts of desecration.
Alright, so my review of the album is now a bit more educated on the band knowing what I know now. It seems that the rhythm section of the band is originally from the band U.P.O. Whom I vaguely remember from my younger days singing a song called “godless”. This was another nu metal trendy group playing the style of southern rock similar to Shinedown today, but with much less talented vocals. Its strange to see these guys going from that to this type of doom but as artists they are entitled to do whatever they please with their music.
The presentation of the artists performing their material is top notch. I was a little worried before watching “Cold Meat Industry: Live in Australia” that the footage would be low quality as so many live videos are, but this is crisp and clear. The sound is absolutely perfect and is as if it came from a CD. The editing is one of the best parts and whoever was in charge did an excellent job.
Despite Syberberg’s painstaking efforts some of the limitations of the source material are revealed in the occasional reel-change mark and one or two glitches in the audio. Nevertheless, Syberberg extensively used archive material so it follows that inconsistencies in presentation may the result of inherent faults in primary source footage or audio. Most of the film is in German with subtitles, though there is an English language track for some of the narration and voice-overs.
It’s difficult to say who this DVD is targeted at, although the endurance of cyclists and their ability to triumph over adversity a la Lance Armstrong may have prompted the films release by Facets Media. The current presence of American forces [amongst others] around the world certainly makes the film an awkward watch as many of the veterans clearly make the point that they are unashamed of anything they did in Vietnam. The most awkward moment is at a monument to the infamous massacre Mai-Lai, where the majority of the American cyclists refuse to take part - citing it as one-off event… and that they’re being manipulated for political purposes.
“The Mirror of the Soul: The Forough Farrokhzad Trilogy” is a documentary released by Facets Video chronicling the life and work of “Iran’s greatest poet”: Forough Farrokhzad. Facets Video you could say specializes in releasing films that are out of the mainstream carrying everything from Asian films, to European, Scandinavian, horror, documentaries, and more. Given this, their choosing to distribute a documentary about a female Iranian poet seems suiting.
When I first received this DVD I nearly fell on my ass. I rarely receive DVD's for review, and the fact that this was more incredible Asian Black Metal made it seem like xmas morning when I was a child (of course, since then, I've learned that christ is about as worthless as santa). Then as I gave it an initial viewing I realized that the show was closed out with my favorite cult black metal act from China, Martyrdom.
Chinese Neofolk / Black Metal / Death Metal / Experimental Metal
It seems lately that I've been asking myself the same question a lot: “Just how much further can music go?” When you receive a release like Estradasphere's new DVD on The End Records, “Palace of Mirrors Live”, you realize that there's so much more left to be accomplished. There was so much about this DVD that inspired me that I'd have to write a novel just to describe it all.
Neoclassical / Progressive Rock / Progressive Metal
The story is written from Goldy's point of view, which means illiterate writing, childish points of view, but also startling smartness and nihilism at times. While the illiterate writing can be annoying at times, one is quite easily used to it, thanks to the absence of complete illiterate writing. One of the first sentences is 'I ran out ov tha hows wen I wuz just 4teen an my step dady bin fuckin me for a yeer or mor'. That needs some adaptation, but it works very well, strangely enough.
