I'm looking for new metal and I just got thinking, if we were symbolizing death it would typically be the Grim Reaper. Now when I see it it's men being fused with machines. I don't know why this symbolism has radically changed but I think it would make for an interesting discussion. Immortal life? The absence of solace in death? Insecurities in humanity?

EDIT; since it's confusing, it's about the symbolism between the two

Lets hear it

If you want to have a discussion a clearer OP would be great.

"To know the truth of history is to realize its ultimate myth and its inevitable ambiguity." Everything is made up and the facts don't matter.

Perhaps I should have thought about it more to myself than rather than post it off the fly. I see it on dirty electronic albums, men being fused with machines in order to to achieve "immortal life", at least that's how I see it.

Don't have to listen, but the covers are what I'm talking about

I always assumed death was associated with white people taking away other's rights.

It shows the evolution of mankind’s addiction for progression, which in actuality transcends the concept of death to one where the addiction is the true representation of death, and is shown as such. You probably wouldn't understand such a concept anyway, as metal is inherently difficult for the unintelligent to grasp.

Insightful but your elitism isn't really needed here which actually kind of detracts from the integrity of your post.

I'll just have it closed if this shit continues

I'm making a comparison between the two ultimatums. The old world death that kind of incites that the world around us is beautiful, and the new world death in which the machine is a simulated reality for immortality. Two very contrasting specimins

A lot of the metal I see nowadays has all these nihilistic themes rather than outright death.

Maybe I'm just listening to too much Anaal Nathrakh.
