Metal is religion

Suicideface

很多人觉得这部纪录片啰嗦,其实不然。我反倒认为,那些啰嗦的回答更像是这些新老乐手在音乐道路上的不懈探索、自我认知或者说人生感悟。所以每看一集我都会摘录一些我认为有趣的语句,以便今后还能拿来回顾。

1. Pre-Metal

Sebastian Bach(Skid row):"Heavy metal is pushing your life to the maximum. Pushing it as hard as you can fucking get it onto the edge of chaos"

“重金属让你的生命推向极致,你可以毫无顾忌地将它推进,直至混乱的边缘。”

Bruce Dickinson(Iron Maiden):"Heavy metal music has become an essential catharsis, some rights of passage. Metal is like a celebration of community and friendship for people who simply have a genetic or emotional predispostion to gravitate towards that kind of music, that kind of aggression. You know the aggressionis there but it's contained and it's controlled and it's focused."

“重金属音乐已经变成了一种必要的精神宣泄,一种权利的释放。金属乐是一群志同道合朋友们的庆典,他们在基因和情感上拥有这样的特质,能感受这种音乐的引力,感受侵...

1. Pre-Metal

Sebastian Bach(Skid row):"Heavy metal is pushing your life to the maximum. Pushing it as hard as you can fucking get it onto the edge of chaos"

“重金属让你的生命推向极致,你可以毫无顾忌地将它推进,直至混乱的边缘。”

Bruce Dickinson(Iron Maiden):"Heavy metal music has become an essential catharsis, some rights of passage. Metal is like a celebration of community and friendship for people who simply have a genetic or emotional predispostion to gravitate towards that kind of music, that kind of aggression. You know the aggressionis there but it's contained and it's controlled and it's focused."

“重金属音乐已经变成了一种必要的精神宣泄,一种权利的释放。金属乐是一群志同道合朋友们的庆典,他们在基因和情感上拥有这样的特质,能感受这种音乐的引力,感受侵略性。你知道侵略性的确存在,但是它是有限度的,可控的且集中的。”

4. New Wave of British Heavy Metal

Sam Dunn(Director):"Were the metal and punk fans coexisting peacefully or was there actually real conflict there?" “金属粉和朋克粉都能和平共处吗还是他们之间真的有爆出冲突?”

Rat Scabies(The damned):"Must be like two snarling dogs in a cage, you know, they'll look at each other, they'll size each other up. And then after a while they kind of back down and get used to each other being there and then it's 'Well maybe his butt doesn't sniff so bad after all.'" “那感觉肯定是像关了两只疯狗在一个笼子里啊,它们互相看着对方,打量着对方,然后过一阵子等它们冷静下来习惯了彼此的存在,就会‘啊,说不定它的屁股闻起来也没有那么臭嘛’”

John Gallagher(Raven):"You get denim jacket or your vest, and all your favourite bands were embroidered on the back. And your mother wouldn't do it, so you had to learn to sew. All the heavy metal fans were great with a needle and thread."

“你会穿上牛仔夹克或者你的背心,所有你最爱的乐队的名字都绣在背上。你的母亲不会帮你绣,所以你只能自己学着绣。所有的重金属乐迷都精通针线活儿。”

5. Glam Rock

Sam Dunn:"Do you think people are here for the nostalgia to relief that time or why do you think people are here?" “为什么你觉得人们到这来?是为了怀念过去的华丽金属岁月吗?”

(A woman)"Hot guys, long hair, rock n' roll metal. It's fine and foul. He's 45 and I still love him." “因为有帅哥、长发和摇滚明星啊。非常棒非常疯狂。他45岁了,我还是那么爱他。”

(Men)"-Even though we move on with our lives. -He's been stay with us." “- 即使生活还是继续,华丽金属成为过去。- 他们还是和我们在一起。”

Erik Turner(Warrant):"That's easier to die off, it's just stick around and fight it out and be tenacious and not give up, and just be like glad for punishment. "

“走向衰落是很容易的,必须要坚持,顽强才能存活,乐观面对挫折。”

Jerry Dixon(Warrant):"Quitting was just never an option. I just said: Oh, shoot me in the head. I can't take it."

“放弃永远不是一个选择,必须要坚持。我有的时候累到说:‘一枪崩了我吧,我受不了了’”

6. Thrash Metal

Brandon Geist(Revolver Magazine):"One of the hugest things I think about Thrash metal and the cross with Punk and Hardcore is the way that the vibe of the metal show changed. Thrash was the win metal discovered moshing basically and discovered stage diving. In a Slayer's show, it was like being caught in the prison. Before you go toa metal show, you might be like headbanging, maybe raise your fists, flash the horns. But you know Thrash show, first thing of the Thrash show is if you're wearing this(glasses), leave it at home, coz it's certainly broken."

“关于激流与朋克还有硬核的结合,一件最重要的事情我认为是金属演出的氛围改变了。在激流演出中,基本上都是mosh和跳水。在一场Slayer的演出中,你感觉就像是在发生暴乱的监狱里一样。在之前你去看金属演出,可能就是甩甩头、挥挥拳头、比个金属礼什么的。但是看激流金属的演出,你要做的第一件事就是把眼镜取下来放在家里,因为它绝对会碎掉。”

Dave Lombardo(Slayer):"The record company did come up to us and discussing what they want us to do. But it didn't set well with the guys in the band, with all of us. We wouldn't go with it, we don't wanna change. We are who we are, this is the way we play,this is the style of songs we'd like to write. If you gonna tell us to do other, you know, we gonna tell you to fuck off."

“唱片公司的确找过我们,和我们谈了谈他们希望我们接下来要做的事,但我们乐队里没有一个人同意。我们不会妥协,我们不想改变。我就是我,这就是我们的方式,这些就是我们喜欢写的歌。如果你告诉我们去做些别的,你懂的,我们会让你滚远点。”

Gary Holt(Exodus):"I know Lars mentioned years ago, and I think he referenced us, about pining ourselves in a coner, have nowhere to go. That's why Metallica became the Rock n Roll. But if's I'm in my coner, I like my coner. It's cool, more than anywhere else."

“我知道Lars几年前说过这样的话,应该说的是我们,他认为我们太墨守成规而不去做任何改变。那就是为什么Metallica能成为摇滚巨星。但是你说我墨守成规,我就是喜欢我这些规矩。因为它很酷,比任何事情都要酷。”

Lars Ulrich(Metallica):"The Thrash stuff and the harder metal stuff survive beacuse when you're fortunate enough not to be part of anything that is too fashionable, and have the opportunity to stick around. As all the other fashions and things fade away, it's the last man standing."

“激流金属与其他更重的金属能够存在的原因是,当你不够幸运,选择了一个不那么受人追捧的潮流时,你能够坚守自己的位置。而当其他潮流褪去,你便是那个最后留下的人。”

7. Grunge Rock

Michael Azerrad(Journalist):"This idea that you could be manly, and sensitive and introspective, and even tortured, was a fairly new thing in the '90s, because hard rock and metal is supposed to be the king of the world, and the ruler of all known planets."

“你可以既爷们同时又敏感且自省,甚至备受折磨,这在九十年代是件相当新鲜的事,因为摇滚乐曾经是硬摇滚和金属的天下。”

8. Nu Metal

Tom Morello(Rage against the machine):"This music kinda started with the idea of making powerful music that had message that was about integrity and unity and this kind of solidarity between the band and the crowd. And it became like, you know, a bunch of thugs, raping women in the pit and then burning the festival to the ground. We popularized the genre which now has just totally run-a-bunk. I just thought, man, this is like, what have we done?"

“该类型音乐传递的初衷是重型音乐的完整性和统一性,而且乐队和观众能够团结一心。结果却变成了一群暴徒强奸妇女,然后把音乐节烧为平地。我们普及了这种音乐,如今却玩脱了。我不禁想,天啊,我们究竟都干了些什么?”

Fred Durst(Limp Bizkit):"Well, I don't know how many people still use the term, but I'm extremely proud to be part of the nu metal movement, and I'm proud of everything that we have accompished and everything we've fucked up."

“好吧,我不知道还有多少人在用(新金属)这个词,但我为自己曾经是新金属运动的一份子而感到非常骄傲,为我们所取得的一切成就和搞砸的一切都无比自豪。”

9. Shock Rock

King Diamond(Mercyful Fate):"For me, Satanism is not a religion. It's a life philosophy. It's never been just an image,I mean... It's totally part of me, King Diamond and Kim Petersen"

“对我来说,撒旦主义不是宗教,而是生活哲学。它不止是一个符号,钻石王和Kim Petersen都是我的一部分。”

Daisy Berkowitz(Marilyn Manson):"God culture was very big in the early 90s because kids that like the music stayed inside and they were the outside kids, they were the kids who didn't have the clubs. And Marilyn Manson feels like all the clubhouse vibe.You know I get it. I know what's going on. And you get it too. And we are laughing at people who think it's aweful and terrible cuz they don't get it. So there was a stronger following that was like a cycle following"

“上帝文化在90年代非常盛行,因为喜欢音乐的孩子们他们忠于自己的内心,他们是一群被边缘化的人,他们没有一个团结的中心,而正是玛丽莲曼森将这些小孩聚集在了一起。你知道我懂了,我知道发生了什么事,你也是。我们嘲笑那些认为这很糟糕很可怕的人,因为他们理解不了。这就像一个循环,越来越多的人追随曼森。”

Clown(Slipknot):"Because we are the product of the society. We represent kids that don't have back turned to them forever. I came up with the term maggots. Our kids are like maggots. They are feeling all from disguisting way of thinking, our violent nature, but it goes deeper than that. If you know anything about a maggot, you know that a maggot turns into a fly. And the fly got wings. It can leave the death and fly anywhere it wants, to a place of beauty, to a place of peace. I'm trying to give you a revelation. I'm trying to make a pip grow up in your head. This is selfvation to the pain that we have and that's what I've been trying to do the whole time was to find my own selvation to my own anger."

“因为我们就是社会的产物,我们代表着那些再也回不到过去的人们,我想出了蛆虫这一概念。我们的孩子们就像是蛆虫,他们通过令人作呕的思考方式感受着一切,我们的暴力文化。但是这个感念远不止于此。如果你了解蛆虫的话,你就会知道,蛆虫会变成苍蝇,苍蝇有翅膀,这样它就可以远离死亡,飞到任何它想去的地方,飞到美丽的地方,飞到和平的地方。我尝试着给你一个启示。我尝试着让这个种子在你脑袋里发芽。这是我们对我们自己痛苦的激励。我一直在做的就是找到解决我愤怒的启示。”

11. Progressive Metal

Ben Weinman(Dillinger Escape Plan):"Well Dillinger itself was us giving up on being musicians for a living. It was us giving up on caring what people thought. We really stopped trying to appeal to a market or a certain fan base. It was really us saying 'We are never going to fit in. We are never gonna be musicians for a living.' So it was really one situation for someone who's just doing something they love. And it happens to work out because they love it. It's a perfect example of that."

“做DEP是在我们放弃了做音乐赚钱,不在意别人对我们的看法的前提下。我们放弃了去迎合市场和受众。我们索性宣称‘我们永远都不会被接受,我们也不指望靠做音乐赚钱’,这样我们就可以纯粹做自己热爱的事了。而正是因为我们纯粹的热爱我们才得以成功,这就是一个完美的例证。”

"Not only that we make things hard for ourselves, physically, technically, however you wanna put it, but we are making things challenging and difficult and uncomfortable for the people who are experiencing as well. We want to take people out of their comfort zone. We want to take ourselves out of comfort zone coz no great art ever comes from comfort."

“我们不仅对自己狠,身体上或技术上的,随便你怎么说,我们也不放过在场的每个人,就是要让他们感到难受和不适。我们要把人们拽出他们的舒适圈,我们也要把自己拽出舒适圈,因为任何伟大的艺术都不是诞生自舒适圈内的。”

Sam Dunn:"Whether it's metal's new emerging bands or the legengs of the genre, it's the same commitment to pushing boundaries and the spirit one-upmanship that drives heavy metal as a whole. And so it's evident to me that heavy metal will remain relevant and will continue to evolve for decades to come."

“不管是新兴重金属乐队或是重金属传奇乐队,他们都有着同样的专注于打破界限、不断挑战的精神。正是这种精神推动者重金属这个整体向前发展。我很清楚重金属将会一直在我们身边,而且会在接下来的几十年里继续发展下去。”

12. Extreme Metal

Joe Duplantier(Gojira):"Basically what I'm saying in my lyrics a lot is that we are nature. Nature is not just something outside of ourselves, I mean, everything is nature. This microphone is nature. This house is nature. We are connected to each other by this universe."

“基本上我歌词表达的意思是我们就是大自然。自然不只是我们的身外之物,任何事情都是自然,这只话筒是自然,这件房子是自然。宇宙把我们联系起来。”

"I think the music is growing with the society. It's a hard, brutal world we live in. Communication, interaction, medias, everything is so intense and crushing. The faster the society goes, the faster the music goes. At the same time we want to calm things down and we want to be more simple. We don't need to use gore, or to put a lot of blood in our video and stuff like that because life is brutal enough."

“我认为音乐是和社会一同成长的。我们生活在这个冰冷残酷的世界,交流、互动、媒体,所有事情都这么激烈,有破坏力。社会的脚步越快,音乐的节奏就越快。同时,我们又想归于平静,简单一些。我们不需要在视频中采用什么血腥的元素,因为生活已经足够残酷了。”
