“Political philosophers have often pointed out that in wartime, the citizen, the male citizen at least, loses one of his most basic rights, his right to life; and this has been true ever since the French Revolution and the invention of conscription, now an almost universally accepted principle. But these same philosophers have rarely noted that the citizen in question simultaneously loses another right, one just as basic and perhaps even more vital for his conception of himself as a civilized human being: the right not to kill.”

"The chancellor, the late chancellor, was only partly correct. He was obsolete. But so is the State, the entity he worshipped. Any state, entity, or ideology becomes obsolete when it stockpiles the wrong weapons: when it captures territories, but not minds; when it enslaves millions, but convinces nobody. When it is naked, yet puts on armor and calls it faith, while in the Eyes of God it has no faith at all. Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of Man...that state is obsolete."

Hmm... yes, this'll fit nicely. Muse - Knights of cydonia cover by El Estepario Siberiano. Crazy good drummer.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

I guess it's settled then. Deathspell Omega does indeed have a human drummer for their recordings:

Shame we missed out on them finally performing live. Would have lined up at the crack of dawn to see them.

He is very good indeed. I can't help feeling rather sad about the fact that there's a whole bunch of superb new(ish) musicians posting their stuff on YouTube, but for the most part, it doesn't really appear that they have written any good music of their own.

I agree, but it's also the viewers fault generally speaking. Whenever many artists release something that's not a cover the views drop substantially.

That said, he does/did play in a band aswell, but I don't know which one
