    The thread about my avatar disappeared. I think my avatar picture is harmless, but I did say earlier the Gothic witch possibly gets back to music I listened to as a teenager. Associated imagery is as follows:

    Here we have a pentagram, the eagle is a symbol from the National Socialist movement (Nazism), and Slayer was one of the “Big Four” in the 1980's.


    Slayer is an American heavy metal band from Huntington Park, California, formed in 1981. The band was founded by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King. Slayer rose to fame with their 1986 release, Reign in Blood. The band is credited as one of the "Big Four" of thrash metal acts, along with Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax.

    Slayer's musical traits involve fast tremolo picking, atonal guitar solos, double bass drumming, and shouting vocals. The band's lyrics and album art, which cover topics such as serial killers, Satanism, religion and warfare have generated album bans, delays, lawsuits and strong criticism from religious groups and the public.

    Def Jam's distributor, Columbia Records, refused to release the album Reign in Blood due to its graphic cover art and lyrical themes. For example, "Angel of Death" detailed Holocaust concentration camps and the human experiments conducted by Nazi physician Josef Mengele.

    So, what do I gather from this? We live in a society where there are demographics with a fascination with evil, where evil and magic are intertwined. Interestingly enough Jehovah's Witnesses aren't the only ones to point out the obvious when it comes to parenting.

    CafeMom: Parents are you listening to the lyrics in your kids music?

    Many people who listen to this music claim that they don't really listen to the lyrics, and that they only really like the music. The lyrics do make their way into the conscious and subconscious of the listener, and will influence their attitudes, perspectives, and emotions if they don't consciously screen and qualify them. The real fact is that once having heard or seen something, you can't unhear or unsee it, and it will leave an impression one way or another.

    Alice, stop copying and pasting. Most people on here know who Slayer is. Most people can Google and do research themselves. Stop copying and pasting every friggin thing.

    Alice, you must be a witch. How do you make threads disappear like that?

    Speaking of listening to the lysrics in modern music. I now as an adult look back at some of the lyrics I used to listen to as a kid (Van Halen or ZZ Top for instance) and I find that I'm a but amazed at how sexually charged they were. So it's not really fair to say that kids listen to the lyrics I know I played VH all the time and never "got it"...

    I'll be at the Seattle concert Sep 3 :)

    AIW how many people have died due to listening to Slayer? How many people died due to listening to WTS doctrine on blood?

    Which can hurt you and your family more? Slayer or Watchtower? I would say that Watchtower is the real evil that spills innocent blood, that preaches hate and decieves millions.

    Well spotted Mythbuster. I won't miss Alice / Consfearacy. Good Riddance.

    Christ Illusion is the name it goes by on Topix

  • Essan

    Wow. I saw that the title of the Slayer song was 'Consfearacy', but I just now realized that it says "Christ Illusion" on the top right on the video graphic too! So both Alice's alternate Usernames are from Slayer songs? Maybe one is the album name and the other a track name.
