Join the moshpit of conceptart with the Metal Militia! This is an idea we were talking about in the "metal fans?" thread.
This would be a "club" were people can meet to talk about metal and stuff like that. I guess we could have activities as well.
A weekly activity like Nightmare of the Week or Teen Challenge where we can take a metal song and paint something representing it, ie Angel of Death (slayer) and we would paint an angel of death.
An IRC and/or a Ventrilo meet up so we can talk about metal.
Anyone else have any ideas?
Join now or die!
'Pumped with fluid, inside your brain
Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes
Burning flesh, drips away
Test of heat burns your skin, your mind starts to boil
Frigid cold, cracks your limbs
How long can you last
In this frozen water burial?
Sewn together, joining heads
Just a matter of time
til you rip yourselves apart'
I foresee a ton of ridiculous illustrations to go along with Slayer's ridiculous lyrics. Anyone heard Tori Amos' "cover" of Raining Blood? That was... interesting...
the infernal pact has been made with the metal militia.
i'll start a painting on one song i like sometime soon.

i dunno, i don't like most modern metal these days, i prefer alot fo stuff from the 80's to the early 90s.
the 80s was a big time and that's when it was so popular.
that was when they had good album covers that where hand painted and drawn. not cheap photoshop works.
music is so over-produced these days, i just like it in it's raw form, no filtering and unreal sound quality.
by the way, i'm doing a piece in vain of the 80's style album covers.
Slayers lyrics arent exactly that good...
by painting something about angel of death you would paint a nazi? haha no way. Forget slayer, im not really ok with the whole anti-christian thing...
bah whatever you wanna call it...
If im not correct, Doesnt the reign in blood album cover is a picture of satan, on a throne, with dead bodies every where? and dont forget, there logo has satan's symbol on it.
what kind of music would you call that?
OFCOURSE ITS METAL
I like metal but im not into satan that much.
they may be good musicians but they can go to hell
This will not end well.
Christian Metal??? Is there a such thing? Just thinking about it gives me chills....
I sold my soul to Satan so I can paint well... got screwed on that deal didn't I
BTW I'm just kidding about all of this so don't get mad...
Metal has always been provocative... if someone can`t deal with rather "special" topics this someone shouldn`t participate in a group called Metal Militia xD
So , whats our first song now ? Please don`t forget that not all of us have every song...tho` i guess Slayers works are easily found on youtube *g*
Motorhead - Hellraiser?
It's got a little bit of satan, a little bit of cenobite, a little bit of Lemmy's moles...? Eh eh?
The pentagram is actually a symbol that means perfection, and was used in alot of civilizations before Christianity. Later on it was seen as a symbol of heathens, and it took some centuries before some guy with power (Constantin the great I think?) declared it as such.
The reversed pentagram is something closer to our time and comes from somewhere in the 19th century I think. However its prolly much more a logo then a real symbol. (if the normal one stands for perfection, the reversed one stands for imperfection)
So to make it short, the symbols you think that are associated to satan right now, are just human made fabrications to give a face to something we actually know nothing about.

Ya or something like Concept Inspired by Song of the week?
Should we vote on what song to do or should we have someone set it all up/choose the song every week or every other week?
Should we have a chat night? Either IRC or Ventrilo.
I like slayers music but im not really ok with the lyrics
Not everybody is going to be able to join the chats. At least I won't, I would prefer people suggest songs in this thread, and then we make a poll or something about it! Would this thread change to the community activities area?
An idea of an activity:
Illustrate, in a comic book fashion, the lyrics of a certain metal song! It would take a bit to do, but I'd love to see what people come up with!
