When strange men with long hair do a better job...
« on: February 23, 2015, 09:57:21 AM »
When strange men with long hair do a better job at preserving Assyrian heritage than the Syriac Christians who hijacked the name. Here is a list of bands who have actually named themselves after great Mesopotamian gods and heroes (just in the metal genre). You will notice that none of them come from the Middle East, and none of them really have Middle Eastern members. Thank Gods for curious non-Assyrians who have more respect for our past than Judeo-Christians.

There are many more, named after minor deities that I've not listed. There are also many many more whose lyrical themes are exclusively related to Mesopotamian folklore. The total list of bands who have either a Mesopotamian God/Demon/Hero name, deal with Mesopotamian themes in lyrics, and use Kings in their alias' would be in the hundreds. Of special note are Melechesh, the proudest of all Mesopotamian bands who actually originated in the occupied Palestine, but moved away due to discrimination.

   (pt 1 - interview with Moloch)
   (pt 2 - interview with Moloch)
  (interview with Ashmedi the Assyrian from the band)
  (Melechesh song - great!)

So follow the lead of the Assyrian Ashmedi, and kill the Judeo-Christian link so we can be perceived as a civilised people.

Law #21, Code of Ur-Nammu: "If someone severed the nose of another man with a copper knife, he must pay two-thirds of a mina of silver"

Only 32 laws.. am I the only one who is wondering how common nose amputation in Sumeria was?

Dude, are you kidding? We are much more civilized now than back in the day when we flayed people alive and had the habit of beheading our enemies.
