  1. Many metalheads know of Morbid Angel as one of the best Death Metal bands the world has ever seen. Originally, they were known for their complex song arrangements, intense guitar playing, and severely fast drum beats that made a perfect death-metally sound. Lately however, I have noticed there is a rather negative opinion on Morbid Angel as seen in this rather humorous youtube video: i8ZpJ4lvEs8 Thoughts?
  2. Re: what got you listening to metal? Ever since I was a small child, I have had a disturbed mind. At first, I was attracted to the heavy sounds of the guitars and their speed, but what I look for in a song is something that simply can't be achieved. I want a song that will strike fear into the hearts of the most corrupt and hate-filled beings in existence, something that will make Satanist cry and a normal person shit out their eyeballs. There is no set of lyrics, drum pattern, guitar riff, crushing bass rhythms, or solo that can possibly meet my standards, but metal is the closest thing ther
  3. Re: Death I believe that we either go to Heaven or Hell.
  4. Re: The Meaning of Life The meaning of life is derived from the individual.
  5. Re: TMA Discussions Part II: Physical Copies vs. Digital Fil It's all a matter of preference for most people. But I have a more practical view of this issue: For example, say I only have 20 dollars to buy music. I have two options; I can either buy a few CD's for only a few songs I like on each of them OR I can buy twenty songs that I do like digitally, if I buy them at all. In the end I believe digital copies win this round. Then there is the matter of convenience. Can you take your entire album collection in a car with you? I find this to be very unlikely. Can you drag around your vinyls
  6. Re: Hey Metalheads! I have problems with authority figures. Don't take it personally if I burn you.
  7. Re: Most Metal thing to eat for breakfast? Stole my first answer. But then I thought, a plane would be more metal than that. http://wrongtown.blogspot.com/2006/01/man-eats-plane.html
  8. Re: How Metal Affects You I already acknowledged your counter arguments int he original post. For the most part I spoke in terms of generalization, but I only mentioned the 50's because the decline of community from there was most noticeable and prominent at that time. I also acknowledged the existence of other styles by saying there were very few splits at all (especially compared to modern music.) The first thing you wanted me to back up is kind of strange to request. I can't tell if you want me to back up our culture (metal) and how it ties us together or if you wanted me to back up music
  9. Metal is a musical style with its own characteristics and sounds just like any other musical style, but the special thing about it to me is the fact that it unites people together like no music has since the 50's. A long time ago before certain technology was developed, almost everyone knew how to play an instrument (mainly the pianoforte or something of its equivalent) and most knew how to sing. Before reading it was an entertainment, the only true form of entertainment besides violence or sex people had. As time moved on, music evolved, and with it a stronger sense of community. However,
  10. Re: The Metal Advisor Discussions Part I: Bands of the Same Personally, I wouldn't like anyone else to have a band name that I do already. It seems to bring even more competition to what is an already hard to achieve goal of being noticed by even the smallest fan-base. There is one band name that seems to have this problem really bad. Look up Hate in any respectable metal archive and you will see about seven different bands named Hate. If every band could be a bit more creative, I'm sure this problem wouldn't be such a big deal.
  11. Re: Mayhem Damn, I thought it would take at least three post before someone would notice that.
  12. Re: Demon Hunter Vs. Behemoth It's like comparing apples and oranges in a way; the real question is who do you like better and why? However, they both play metal, and both use similar instrumental techniques, so they are still worth comparing.
  13. Re: Practice habits? Damn, and I thought I practiced a lot. So how does your teacher like to teach you?
  14. Re: A place for lyrics or tabs? Thanks for the response Akeslj!
  15. Re: Dimebag Darrell He was shot. Metal.

  17. Re: Turisas No I'm confused. > T_T
  18. Re: Slayer Slayer band members like men.
  19. Re: doin' my intro Go home. > No really, have fun here.
  20. This is a rather interesting comparison to me because of the extreme fundamental differences between the bands. They're obviously both metal, both are pretty heavy, but one is Black Metal and the other is Christian Metal. Thoughts?
  21. So I went to Mayhem, they had Testament, Trivium, Disturbed, and Dethklok play. I got to knock down everyone in a circle pit, it was the most fun to watch the fat people go down because it was like they were going in slow motion, but I still helped them up (not an easy task). Needless to say there was a shitload of drugs there and a lot of cigarette smoke (I'm allergic to it) but I had a banana so it was all good. Lasted from 1PM to 1AM, so it was pretty fucking hot. Surprisingly enough, I only saw two people get arrested, one I think for stealing and the other for starting a fight. The firs
  22. I've looked around a little bit, and while there is plenty of discussion on what bands are good or bad, and what style of music one prefers, I haven't really found a forum section dedicated to sharing lyrics, tabs, or videos of each other playing. I could have easily just missed it or something, but I think it would be pretty cool to share our talent and whatnot with each other.
  23. Re: Turisas To be completely honest, I doubt the existence of battle metal. If it exist in anything it might as well be glorified death metal, or death metal with more energetic and less dark overtones. Besides, they dress as vikings and play as vikings on stage. Their lyrics are based on Norse lore and legends, even their band name is a tribute to a Norse "God." I'm pretty sure it's safe to call them a viking metal band, but if they come out as a "battle metal" band, it's probably because they want to be unique. After all, there are other viking metal bands, but how many "battle metal"
  24. What are some of your practice habits and how long do you practice? I'll start: I usually try to practice five hours a day, but lately I've been feeling lazy and have only been practicing one hour a day. =( When I practice (especially long) songs, I like to break them down into miniature songs or segments because my memory is kind of shaky. If a song requires a certain technique that I can't do, I usually go to youtube or to someone who knows how and practice different instances that the specific technique is used in songs (examples are: sweep picking, string skipping, harmonics, etc...)
