metal gloss

B000002KB8.01-A18OOZZGBKRIDU._AA130_SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpgThis pdf is a very interesting/amazing philosophical gloss on the eponymous song “Black Sabbath”. The author has put forth an interesting treatise on the meaning of the song as well as the very nature of Heavy Metal music as told/foretold by this song. Spanning metaphysical concepts of self-awareness, the nature of consciousness, enlightenment, and the end of days…I have to respect anyone who can write a piece like this, about Metal music, while quoting from as diverse sources as Dante, the Bible, J.R.R Tolkien, the Upanishads, Metallica, Plato, Beowulf, Augustine, Meher Baba, Melville, Slayer, Shakespeare, Cooleridge, and along with many others, of course, Ozzy. Thanks to WFMU’s Beware of the Blog for the pointer.
