  1. Traveller, nature lover, introvert. That's just to name a few things we have in common. Nice to meet you and welcome!
  2. I agree! And I'm curious about her new solo project!
  3. BattleBeast - Bringer of pain, the album. It’s great workout music
  4. For me it’s all about convenience as I listen to music pretty much everywhere I go so it’s mostly digital for me. Also it’s easy to get the whole discography even if I only listen to a few songs from each album. Then if I like an album enough to buy a physical copy, I buy CDs. And if it’s an all time favourite, I get vinyl too.
  5. I come from a musical family, my dad used to play the drums, mom was a violinist, sang in a choir and plays the guitar occasionally. I myself am a bassist, can also play (or figure out how to) most guitar-like instruments as well as drums and percussion. Above mentioned are some points I agree with, mainly musical education being crap at schools. I recall a few attempts to make my class play the recorders, most of which were already broken, without any proper instructions. Now I’m sure there are tortures greater than that, but I’m afraid I won’t ever be able to get that horrible sound out of my head. As for theory, there were only basics and it didn’t really matter if you understood it or not. So unless you already knew theory from elsewhere, you certainly didn’t get to learn any at school. Maybe things have changed since then, after all it’s been a while, but somehow I doubt it. Another point I agree with is that it’s hard to motivate children to learn something unless it appeals to them so letting them choose their instrument and focus on genres they like would definitely help a lot. There’s also this one thing I noticed among young parents I know and that is that they either make their child play an instrument or a sport but rarely ever both. What’s your opinion on that? Personally I think a bit of both would be ideal but that’s just my opinion.
  6. Yay, a BattleBeast fan! Hi, nice to meet you. I’m a beastling myself, mainly because of Noora Louhimo Just for the record, I like most of the other bands you mentioned too
  7. Hello! Nice to meet another fellow bass player! To answer your question, I don’t think i have favourite composers, there are ones i prefer to others, such as Smetana, Mahler or Vivaldi, but in general I’d say I like various pieces by various composers rather than having favourites. Do you have any favourites?
  8. Thank you very much! Thank you! Most people find my obsession unhealthy, so I'm glad someone liked it Also happy to hear we have some things in common. Nice to meet you!
  9. Hello everyone! I go by the name of Styx. Been a metalhead since early childhood, mostly thanks to my dad who introduced me to bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. These two in particular as well as many other from that era still hold a special place in my heart but I've developed my own taste so my preferred bands today are mostly female fronted (or at least clean vocals) symphonic metal bands. I do enjoy heavy riffs and growling/screamo too, as long as it doesn't go overboard, then it ruins the song for me. My other passion is classical music. Other than that I'm a bass player, a medical student, a PC games and a weirdo that's interested in everything radioactive. The main reason I joined this forum is that I don't have enough metalheads in my life so I can't wait to get to know y'all!
