No idea who this Ryan dude is, but he sounds like a complete bender from reading this. If idiots want to listen to metal fine, but if you don't understand it, don't act like an authority on it.

I personally quite like Xasthur. I've heard of Ryan Adams. No idea what stuff he does but from what I can tell I wouldn't like his stuff. I think its the kind of shit indie kids like... or students. Rolling Eyes

I glanced over it here at work, did he say black, death and speed metal all in description of Xasthur or did i misread?

And what kind of 'shit' is that?

So the guy likes some metal but isn't very educated about it - big deal.

I like Xasthur very much and I was quite pissed off when he went to Hydra-Shit Evil or Very Mad This is a disgrace for him. Anyway there's an approach to metal scene from big commercial mass media (TV, magazines etc) that normaly hate metal. Metal for them is just the new commercial puppy and they try to exploit it. The coverage of Xasthur in NY Times didn't actualy shocked me as it's a kind of new policy that big magazines have an asshole to write about extreme music so the magazine attracts new customers. They sold everything and since they are out of options they try now to exploit extreme metal. They try to create a hype, a Dimmu Borgir type of hype. Wait and you gonna see more coming Mad When I read the title of this post I thought that Malefic actualy spoke to NY Times...

As I said I like Xasthur.

I was referring to Ryan Adams.

"I donít know all the rules to metal, but he seems to kind of be above them. I think now he has a drummer ó whoís not technically bad, because itís speed metal, but the timing isnít exactly perfect. It comes off as charming, because you can tell what the ideas are, like indie rock. Theyíre on top of their game."

The part where he says Xasthur is above all other metal is funny. He should not make claims like this if he admittedly says he doesn't know much about metal. Especially if he considers Xasthur "speed metal".

Do the early LPs sell for a decent price anywhere?

I just remembered that I invested in about 5 of his LPs in 2006 or so. Still never been played, etc. :p

I love how now that Metal is back in the mainstream here in the US,
trendster trust fund hipster douchefag fucks with horn-rimmed glasses, sweaters & mop-tops feel obligated to throw us a bone by telling us that "Metal can be interesting". Fuck you in the fucking mouth, you cowardly, trendy, candy-ass shitbags! Wow, "thanks" - I didn't realize Death Metal was cool until Chuck Klosterman told me it was hip & "ironic" to claim you like it! It's official fellas, now we don't have to be ashamed to listen to IRON MAIDEN anymore - Hipster faggots & Myley Cyrus "rock" their t-shirts!
Fucking dipshits need to stick to their own faggy brand of bullshit & keep their goddamn noses out of the Metal scene! I hope G.G. Alin & El Duce come back from the grave & pull a train on Ryan Adams in front of his mother.
