The best part about this thread is that I myself am in 2 metal bands right now, writing melodic metal in my free time and trying to apply theory in the best ways possible, while you kids are debating about Slipknot.

It makes me lol on the inside. Like some sort of time-reverse (time signaturez!) paradox lol.

I feel like I am some sort of expert on metal, and this whole thread is beneath me in a way.


Point #1 - YOU'RE ONLY 18... you are not capable of being a metal "expert" at 18. That's not even up for debate - GAME OVER, YOU LOSE, come back when you're 30. You are, however, capable of being a pretentious little snot - and are succeeding wonderfully. This may come as a shock to you... but at 18 you're pretty much still a kid yourself. An infant in the world of metal which has been around for quite some time now.

Point #2 - Being in a metal band doesn't mean shit, especially when you don't provide links to your site, samples, or label. Hell even a gay ass myspace would be enough. There are alot of shitty ass local bands out there. By your definition, Slipknot would be "metal experts" since they're in a metal band (all be it a lousy one). You didn't even clarify what style you play. "Melodic Metal" - that alone denies credability since you're missing your middle word... melodic *type of* metal.

It's like someone saying they're a student in something as there credibility. All it means is you have an interest that you're actively exploring - it doesn't magically validate any oppinion you happen to have.

Point #3 - "applying musical theory" - What the fuck is that supposed to mean? I don't study music and don't pretend to - I'm just a black/death metal fan. But it sounds to me like some random cathphrase people use to make themselves sound alot more intelligent than they really are. I just looked it up and it seems to be a very broad field that can be interpreted alot of ways. Instead of saying that you're doing it, how about you explain how you're doing it. That might actually count for something.

Also, this isn't a metal board. This board is primarily high school and junior high shcool anime fans... not known for the knowledge of metal. So don't be surprised when a conversation turns into a debate about popular bands. Most of the people posting in this thread don't know much about metal, but some do and are making interesting posts.

@Mauz - only all female metal band i can think of is Drain STH... and they sound more like an alice and chains rip off than anything else. Oh and Jack of Jill (more of shock rock than metal). But they're only in metal in the broadest definition of the genre. For the record, I'm not fans of either of these bands, they're just the only ones I could think of that had any credability what so ever.

EDIT: Doh! Didn't realize Kyo had already mentioned Jack of Jill.

Thanks so much for the links azrael.
I just started to listen to metal again (after about 2 years without exploring any new albums or bands)

I just listened to Slayer - Christ Illusion and Into Eternity - The Scattering of Ashes, Slayer still kicks ass as usual and I liked the style of into eternity, any other "new" albums/bands that I might have missed during the last year?

Yeah I was impressed with Slayer's new album as well. It's alot more thrash than some of their more recent efforts. I knew it was a good sign when they brought back the artist that did some of the covers for their classic albums.

I myself am also getting back into metal after a 3-5 year hiatus lol. I've been following my fav bands but haven't done much exploring into new new stuff at all. Like I've said, I'm mostly into black and death metal, neither of which seem to very popular right now even by underground standards. I'm playing catch up now with metal like was with anime about a year ago (damned WoW addiction!)

Most of the people posting in this thread don't know much about metal, but some do and are making interesting posts.


Hmmm, I thought you would take my bait, since you seem to know the most about metal around here.

First, I would like to point out a couple of things:

1) Take posts that I say that contain the word "lol" with a grain of salt. I never use "lol" on message boards unless I'm trying to be humorous by parodying people who *do* use "lol" when they have the time to make a suitable response. I said expert, but maybe I should have used a different choice of words. Maybe I should have said something else that would have further implied that I am posting on an anime forum, not a metal message board.

2) Take posts that have extraneous "z"'s in them with a grain of salt. Same reason as above.

3) "Internets is serious business".

4) I may be 18, but using the "age" argument against people doesn't always work. I've met my share of 24 year olds that have behaved like infants, as well. I'm not implying you are; on the contrary, your response has quite a bit of merit. I am merely pointing out that age doesn't always work as a counterpoint.

Being knowledgeable about metal can mean numerous things, and although someone who is older than I may have more years of metal-listening under their belt, per se, I listen to metal albums like it's going out of style. I think, for someone who is 18, I am *quite* knowledgeable on the subject.

5) You're right. I should have clarified that the bands I'm in are all of 24-27 year old guys who have been playing guitar for 6-10 years. I've been playing bass for two.

Think about it like this: Iowa City has a *lot* of musicians. Why would two bands of well-versed individuals *desire* to have me as their bassist? Going by the "years argument" it would appear that I am still a fledgling bassist.

In reality, though, it has everything to do with the fact that I accelerated beyond my peers at both 4 and 6-stringed bass. Granted, playing a 6 string isn't the key to bass "wizardy" but I think that pointing it out counts for something.

I practiced 20 hours last weekend. I practice pinch harmonics, normal "artificial harmonics", scale runs, complex rhythms and time signatures, and I recently accomplished something many lead guitar players do. I can sweep pick my bass (without a pick) a two-octave arpeggio in a complete 4-note chord progression. I'm working on doing it faster than 8th notes at 208 bpm (16th notes at 104 bpm).

So, I may be young, but that doesn't mean I can't back up what I say when it comes to the amount of technical skill I have when it comes to bass. I play it like a lead guitar. You remember when I called out JigokuShoujo on her lying? You should be aware that I don't like lying, even on message boards (which is, I agree, silly).

Although I wasn't serious about claiming to be an expert on a form of music that is older than me (on a message board comprised mainly of people younger than myself), you're calling my musical abilities into question.

That, to me, is serious now.

3 - I'm taking a heavily accelerated music theory course at the college here, and I use things I learn to identify what I write, write more complex melodies and rhythms, and harmonically stable chords and chord progressions. Music theory *is* a very broad thing. From wikipedia, it says that it regards the study of the mechanics of music.
From that, I can say that I am taking music theory classes to write better sounding music that is more pleasing to the ear. Much like a car mechanic who needs to learn how a car works to begin modifying it, a good musician should know certain things about music before plunging into making it, I think. That is what I'm doing. For example, I am utilizing what I've learned about scales and modes to make sounds with key changes and relative key changes that sound more dynamic.

4) So my posts aren't interesting enough? I've made a pretty informative band listing post earlier in this thread, and I even posted a review of an Onmyo-za CD in Redgarnet's thread about Jmetal. Even the post that elicited your response must have been interesting, at least to you and Mauzy. I know I shouldn't be surprised, but should I also just not speak when I feel I can make a valid point about myself?

I'd post samples of my playing now, but I can't do it because quiet hours are almost in effect in the dorm.

http://www.myspace.com/lookingformusicianstoday is one of my bands' myspaces. I recorded the bass for these a couple of months ago. Since then I've only gotten better. It didn't take me many takes to do the solo in Broken Wall. I think maybe 3 or so. Granted it may not sound the best, but that is because I also have to work within the parameters that the guys set for the songs. The next three songs we will be adding in will be more Gotheburg- sounding, as our sound has progressed quite a bit in these few months.

I'll post more of my solo compositions, including the sweeping and my own 5 finger tap neoclassical piece later this weekend upon request.

I highly recommend demo 2 and 3, not only because I rip bass licks on the second half of 2, and not only because 3 has a lot of nice harmonies with a furious bassline underneath it. I think that we have really well-produced demos that don't sound like they were recorded in mono into a boom box into a metal trashcan, like 90% of music on Myspace.

Azrael, do you play guitar or write music at all?

I don't want to sound like a total jerk, but from one partially joking post, you've basically attacked what I do in my free time, so I am responding accordingly.

Dragonland just came out with Astronomy.

Firewind just came out with Allegiance.

Cellador came out with Enter Deception last summer, and they are from Omaha, right next to my home town. I've partied with these guys, and I even auditioned to be their bassist. Bill Hudson said he liked my playing, and he's their lead guitar player. The toughest thing about Cellador's songs (learning them) is that they are all pretty high in tempo, and I had to nail every single note with my fingers. Hello, Mr. Metronome!
