I just watched Rick Falkvinge’s (the founder of and MEP for the Pirate Party) talk at TEDxLondon. It’s amazing, inspiring, insightful and contains plenty of lol-moments as well. Ever heard a politician quote Futurama before?

Remember ‘seed and share’ could be the new ‘love and peace’!

Marco Brambilla – Civilization

Posted in english, Video with tags , on February 25, 2012 by NachtVorst

Amazing video by Marco Brambilla! I wish there was a better quality version of this, since it’s best watched full-screen. A 3D-version is displayed as a permanent installation in the Standard Hotel in New York. (via MrEgregore’s Youtube channel)

The music in my head: KREATOR Coma of Souls

Posted in english, Metal, The Music in my Head, Video with tags , , on January 14, 2012 by NachtVorst

The title track of Kreators 1990 masterpiece Coma of Souls. This song has been in my head for the last two days, mostly the killer main riff. Check out this awesome live version from the Live Kreation DVD:

Black Metal 101, a Lecture by Professor Fenriz

Posted in Metal, Video with tags , , , , , , on January 8, 2012 by NachtVorst

I was looking up some Bathory related things and found this:

Fenriz (of the mighty Darkthrone) takes us through the history of black metal, from the first Black Sabbath, via Venom and Slayer up to the early nineties when the Norwegian wave hit the scene.

A great trip through metal history (Fenriz is also known as DJ Vast Knowledge Of Music, check his mixtapes and his Band of the Week) and quite educational for the newer fans.

And it’s always a pleasure to hear Fenriz talk about his passion, music and proving once again his motto ‘It’s not how many albums one has, but how MUCH one has heard’.

Guitar lessons: Immortal and Emperor

Posted in english, Metal, Video with tags , , , , , , , on January 7, 2012 by NachtVorst

I found these cool little guitar lessons by Ihsahn & Samoth from Emperor and Abbath from Immortal. Very cool to see/hear these pieces on just guitar!

These guys are one of the best guitar-duos in the world, perhaps at the same level as King/Hanneman or Murray/Smith. They play so casually and cool and still sound just like on the record, genius at work!

Isahn is actually a music instructor (imagine having him as a music teacher at school…) and also has some amazing video’s for GuitarWorld called ‘Left Hand Path‘.

Check out Abbath playing ‘Kashmir’ and then the riff from ‘Tyrants’, I must admit I never noticed it before.

What a contrast to Ihsahn! Abbath clearly isn’t an instructor (as he readily admits) but a very skilled player nevertheless (“I’m very competent on my shit but also very incompetent…”) . You’ve just gotta love the noise and comments he makes while playing and how he plays with his face like he’s playing a live show in full corpsepaint, I guess it’s mandatory when playing these songs.

Some bonus material here:

Emperor: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Seems like a different edit of the same material

Immortal: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7   Battles in the North!
