Black Metal Theory Symposium II

Does it get any better than this?  Black Metal Theory Symposium II in London on January 13, 2011.  The theme for this symposium is Black Metal and ecology:  “A new word is required that conjoins ‘black’ and ‘ecology’: melancology, a word in which can be heard the melancholy affect appropriate to the conjunction.”

“The Black Metal Theory Symposium thus invites speculation and interventions on the blackening of the earth, landscapes of extinction, starless aeon, sempiternal nightmares, black horizons, malign essences, Qliphothic forces from beyond … in a general re-conceptualization of black ecology.”
