    Barbados: Island ov The Sun

    Post  Emdeka on Sun Dec 05, 2010 3:08 pm

    Yea, my island Barbados. Home to approximately 285,000 people, 431 square kilometres and has an unlimited supply of fucking SUN. The early inhabitants of my people and early history of the island is pretty much the same as many other Caribbean islands. The first settlers were said to be the Amerindians and Caribs. These then fled upon the arrival of the Portuguese who gave the island its name, "Los Barbados" (which means “bearded-ones”, referring to our Bearded Fig-Trees).

    Then the British colonies came, drove them out, brought my enslaved ancestors here to work...you know the rest...

    If there is one thing about the early History of Barbados that many people truly admire, its the dark paranormal, mysterious events that took place.

    Ghouls such as The Steel Donkey, The Heart Man (who stole children and ripped their hearts out as a sacrificial offering to the glorious Satan), Duppies and Conrad play a very important roll in the island's Folklore. These ghouls have all said to be summoned by Obeah priest.

    Although 80% of us are Black descendants of the Igbo, Yoruba and Akan tribes. Our pagan religions are not well preserved, due to the chaotic mind pollution that is Christianity (95% of Barbadians are Christians).

    Enough of the historic stuff lets talk about the crappy scene...

    The scene here seriously sucks. With a shitload of posers and small-minded folks who only seek Metal/Rock culture for its attire, it is quite sickening for Metalheads such as myself to be associated with such people. I can say i'm the main Misanthrope of the music industry in Barbados. I can't fully express my disgust towards it.

    The closest thing we have to a metal show here are the Rock Parties held by Standing Penance (local hard Rock Band). Good atmosphere and good people to socialize with (until the posers come through that is...).

    The posers have this idea that looking "goth" or "punk" is the way to go (even though their views and meanings on these terms are WAY off).

    There are only a handful of Metaheads here. Which sucks. Hopefully I intend to change this. But to be honest, I couldn't care too much.

    Emdeka.
    Quite frankly, this is a mirror of the situation in Guyana and I'm sure its same in a lot of other places. These guys should be careful though, certain people will want to beat the heck out of them...
