Previously, previously, previously.
Funny, but full of stupids like equating "ragnarok" and "Book of Revelations".What is this, Wikipedia?
You can't handle the metal.
I never could handle the metal.
What is it with AC/DC being popular all over again? Has anyone ever seen Angus Young and Wee Jimmy Krankie appear on the same stage? I think not.
For some reason the moment my eyes got to the end of your inability-to-handle-the-metal confession, I knew that the next sentence, whatever it was, would inevitably start with the words "What is it with".
I love it when someone asks a goofy question and the born again brigade shows up to treat it like a theology seminar.
Nah, Conservopedia. They've got "EXTINCT" under "IMAGINARY", not "REAL".
Religion -> Biblical -> From The Book Of Revelations -> "Mexican Santa".
Mexican Santa made me LOL.
Frightened my wife.
Me, not Mexican Santa.
Is your inability to count the (singular) number of revelations contained in said book more or less stupid?
That is odd considering they have a specific Viking section.
Where does that leave The Lord Weird Slough Feg?
Somewhere out Behind the Claw, spinward of Regina.
Oh, you meant on this chart! Vargr if I know. =D
Now it's only a matter of time before some band springs into existence for no other reason thank to fill the "Physically Impossible" Triple-umlat category.
--which, in turn, starts the arms race to find a band with umlauts over every letter.
Is it too early to register "ÃœmlÃ¤Ã¼t"?
Damn, if only I actually played a musical instrument...
Knowing most metal bands, that won't be a problem.
Why did my e-mail notification of your reply come in all backwarded?
It's clearly some kind of communist plot.
Clearly. Either that, or a Unicode right-to-left marker.
Soon we'll have names rendered entirely in IPA and, ironically enough, nobody will be able to read it.
Haven't the-Prince-formally-known-as-squiggle and the Led Zepplin IV album already reached total illegibilty?
My metal-fu isn't strong enough to know of a triple-umlauted band name. However, Turmion KÃ¤tilÃ¶t released a single last year named "MinÃ¤ MÃ¤Ã¤rÃ¤Ã¤n", which is probably going to take some beating on the umlaut front.
That's actually perfectly grammatical Finnish for "I command" [and you obey]. The band name is quite nice too, if hard to translate: Wikipedia's suggestion of "Midwives of Perdition" is technically accurate but nowhere near as badass as the original, since Finnish kÃ¤tilÃ¶ is not feminine and turmio sounds much more debauched (and enjoyable) than the dry and biblical "perdition".
These guys have another spin on the triple umlaut, but IPA hasn't quite caught up with them yet.
The finest ontology yet produced.
Where's the JRR Tolkien category?
Progrock, rather than Metal?
I don't know about all of them, but I'm pretty sure Gorgoroth is not prog rock. :)
Morgoth... not a prog rock band
Cirith Ungol... not a prog rock band
Amon Amarth... not a prog rock band
Utumnu... not a prog rock band
Lugburz... also not a prog rock band
actually - which prog rock band did you have in mind?
or in other words: take any sinister sounding term from any tolkien text, add some warpaint, ask christophe for a logo and there, there, there, and there you go....
I love it!
Ugh. Faulkner. He's everywhere.
Why is "sodomy" under "deadly things"?
i was wondering that too, but the existence of "corncob rape" might have something to do with it.
Why is "Mexican Santa" under "Book of Revelations"?
In Mexico, Santa is the great red dragon prophesied in the Book Of Revelation.
They're missing one label. That skull in the middle?
That skull is Dio.
I'm reminded of Jon Armstrong's book Grey, with its bands Alüminüm Anüs (triple umlaut wins), Töxic Tësticle Färm and Hammørhëd
Some occultism-nerd part of me wants to create meaning from the lines of the pentagram. Like some common elemental thread of heavy-metal-ness that links "Medieval, Religion, Animals, and Pointless Misspellings" and which is totally separate but just as basic as "Faulker References, Badass Misspellings, Animals, and Metal."
Also, seems like they really could have reorganized it to include a category for "Things About Butts."
I had the same occultism-nerd reaction.
Chart is worthless without Stryper.
Please correct and post. Waiting eagerly.
Technically don't you think MegaDeth belongs in the "pointless misspellings" category just as much as the "death" category?
I notice that DeathTöngue and DeathMøle are conspicuously absent from this list. Tut-tut!
Borknagar: The band so nice they charted it twice. And where are SpÄ±nÌˆal Tap and Alice Cooper? Eh? Eh?
