New Yorker Article

wow. just wow. Also, if you only want to read the part of the article about metal, then just read the first 2 pages, but it is a great article all together.

It talks about man heavily involved in the death metal underground scene converted to Islam and is now a high ranking Al-Qaeda member.

Discuss.

Death metal is an extremist movement...


lol

Fans who outgrow the music, as most do, often enough become religious.


whaaa...?

Also, what kind of name is Prozak...? Isn't that an anti-depressant?

They're treating death metal as if it's some disreputable underground society devoted to causing mayhem and burning down churches.


Oh, wait. That was black metal.

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

Can anyone confirm that comment about people becoming religious after they leave the death metal scene? I seriously doubt it, but you never know.

I don't think death metal's been around long enough for people to make a generalization about that. We haven't given it even a generation yet.

Not that he ever had it or anything...
seeing as his wife wants to ban violent video games...
who knows what she would do to death metal.

Stupid *****y legislative official.

Death Metal seems to be the new It in todays society.

The History Channel, Wife Swap, Al-Qaeda. Hmmm...
Most of the important things


in the world have been accomplished

Am I the only one who liked the article? The death metal part was pretty inaccurate, as you guys have pointed out, but the rest of the article was fascinating in itself.

By the way, you guys aren't looking at the big picture. They're not saying death metal leads to terrorism. What they're saying is that death metal was part of this guy's journey. Sure, it has a lot to do with naive mainstream perceptions of death metal, but they're not condemning it at all.

I highly doubt its bullshit, seeing as the New Yorker is at least a semi-legitimate publication. I thought the author treated death metal from a fair and non-biased perspective.
#30
Fair and non-biased? Anything he mentioned about death metal fans was a generalization and assumption purely on his part.

They tuned their guitars in unconventional ways, and some, influenced by classical musicians, composed songs that required high degrees of discipline and technical virtuosity to play.


Both true.

“If you die as an unbeliever in battle against the Muslims, you’re going straight to hell, without passing Go.”




Still reading the article, but I just had to mention that.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.
