personally, I have never heard anything about a "green" light.

In my lil' research that I do....sometimes,the "green" light is refered to many times by the band Type O Negative.In some of the songs...it's a direct representation of DEATH/AZRAEL.

Then again,here's another theory and possible truth to the "green" light thing.When TheHeathenDJ mentioned the Lantern.A thought formed in my mind(a memory)he might have been remembering The Green Lantern comic book super hero.Silly assumption,I know....but it has validity.For the hero's lantern(ring)sprayed forth a "green" light....one that tranformed him into his heroic persona.Just a lil' FYI is all.

I have to agree with you there DARKY...nobody knows Azrael like Leilah does.

As for the American Gothic soceity(me)at large...be it the well known version of Him,The Water Horse version of Him,the bright angelic version of Him,or the badass versions....it's all one in the same....in my opinion.True,some people are still afraid of Him....it's cause they have been living a "lie"....cause of the Xtian concept.But we ALL KNOW what terrible travesties were committed in the name of Xtianity.

But to the point,badass is good.

Crawler..I wouldn't put too much stock in lyrics from a Type O Negative song. I have that cd too, and it really has very little to do with Death. :flame: and it's not too good a cd either....

Darky! Thanks for your comments on that poem. I appreciate that.

Have you read nepethe's encounter on the other forum? I think you should! Such striking similarities...it's odd...and wonderful!

As regards Azrael's many personifications, like Crawler said, all facets of Him equally as beautiful...and as we all know, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", is it not?

Ah, Type O...*sigh*.  What Leilah said is true, I suppose, 'World Coming Down' doesn't so much have to do with 'Death' as it does 'death'.  But the song you mentioned, Nightcrawler, 'Creepy Green Light', ah, the imagery...Green-Wood Cemetery, lying drunk on his girlfriend's grave, waiting for her to 'come back'.  It may not be their best CD, but there are still good tracks on it.  Of course, I could listen to Peter Steele recite the phone book, and I'd love every minute of it...  :biggrin:

:asthanos:  <---  'Haunted', off 'October Rust', aaaaah, that song gives me such delicious goosebumps....

I much prefer "Heirate Mich" by Rammstein. He sings about digging up his dead girlfriend and making it with her... all the while saying "marry me".... with such great lines as "her skine tears like paper".... and more...

Now Tori singing to me.... I would give my right ******** for that. As for Type O, been listening to them for almost 20 years, ever since they were Carnivore.... and Peter Stalin (Steele) was much more hateful when he was younger... but since I still love all of his tunage, I will simply bite my tongue and not get into any arguments about how good the albums are... they have done it all-- they went from thrash/heavy metal to Goth to Pagan to Drug Rehab.

Leilah,
yeah,I believe you are right...the "green" light by TON doesn't exactly represent Death as much as it represents death.Didn't somebody just say that?:laugh:
I for one,think they are very cool,but I'm the kind of person that also listens to bands like Rammstein,NIN,Manson,Cradle of Filth,and Coal Chamber(but this isn't the thread to discuss music)...but what do I know...haha.

Rev,
looks like we have other similiarities...Carnivore...that was a long time ago.

Daoine o',
::shame,shame::but they are very good..badass,actually.

But back to the topic at hand,Death,Azrael.
There are many.many versions of Azrael.But all are one in the same,and uniquely,beautiful.Like Leilah,"beauty is in the eye of the beholder."Heck,to be technical about this topic....ie:all the different versions.But wasn't the "torch" passed onto Azrael by Michael?,or Gabriel?Help me out Leilah,it's been awhile since I last read "Melancholy".Or I might have misread it or something.Therefore,I must read it again.

AMORTE!!!

It's not that the "torch was passed on". It was simply that Mikhail fulfilled that function (along with many others) prior to Azrael being awakened into being.

You're welcomed Leilah.....I simply adore HEAVY HALOS....always makes me cry.  I'll have to check out what Nepenthe has written....

And yes "Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder !!"

Nepenthe's story is IDENTICAL to an experience that I had 23 years ago, to the TEEEEE! In fact, we've been comparing notes, seems we have a LOT of eerie similarities in our lives. It's very, very weird, but in a good way, ya know?

What a phenomenal story.....I was reading so hard I think I forgot to breathe.  Quite a similarity huh.  I'm @ such a loss for words.  But I felt her every word.  She was given a gift....a gift of Azrael's presence.  There is no finer gift I could ever think of.  And His amethyst eyes....and His smile.

INDEED! It's just so very odd, you know? One has to wonder the significance of all of the similarities and how it will all pan out.

There are things we must do together that have not yet been explored....but they are already given to opportunity.....only awaiting the moment's arrival.
