oogieboogieman420 Posted March 26, 2007 Share Posted March 26, 2007 I don't know if this has been attempted here before not.. I don't think the general population is really that into metal.. or maybe they are and don't realize it, as metal has more genres than any other musical genre... Anyway.. on point... I figured since there's wrestling threads, and football threads and even a cinderellie thread.. why the hell not a thread for the metal heads representing the metal nation? Talk about what got you into metal.. your favorite bands, news about your favorite metal bands.. and most importantly, since I have a hard time keeping track of tours, tour info when your favorite band hits the fuckin road to pound out another sic ass tour... I also have to admit, that this would be a cool way for me to find out about other bands, because there isn't a very wide range of music exposure out here.. there's country, rap and pop.. so until the MTV special about a headbanger's journey, I didn't even know about Therion and nightwish, or even Children of Bodom or Dimmu Borgir... I only listened to like, slipknot of course.. some Arch enemy, Lacuna Coil, Danzig and your basic list of American metal bands that you hear about.. So my knowledge of all the different type's of bands that are out is limited... So yeah, I'm alittle selfish, but it's cool cause I think it would kickass to have a metal thread for us heads...So my first question is, who is heard therion, and likes them? I like their sound, but I'm not so into nightwish.. I think the chic from therion has a beautiful voice, and whoever it is in the band who's coming up with this shit is fuckin genius... I love the mix of classical, orchestra type music is fused with the metal doom and gloom sound of black/gothic metal.. it's really beautiful music... in a dark way.. Songs like the invincible, I cant explain it.. but it's a powerful song.. It should amaze anybody who is into really good music.. and beauty in black is a song that is just majestic feeling.. it's a simple sound almost, or so it sounds to me.. but it's also very complex.. It's something else.. it's like no other..Second, is I really would like to know, why you got into metal? what draws you to it, and makes you listen to it above anything else? What about metal makes you fell comfortable in that surrounding, with the anger, and hate (in most cases), And lastly, what is your favorite metal band, and why? Everybody knows mine is slipknot, but what about y'all? I of course, like metal because of the hate and the anger.. I like the sound of it, the over loaded turn it up as loud as you can, and then turn it up some more... my favorite sound ina metal band, is the double bass, how sometimes it sound slike a machine gun goin off, or just how it give sit that, pounding on your fuckin chest sound... I don't like it when it's so fast it bleeds together, and you're just banging on the drums.. I wish there were more bands like slipknot, because I like the way they use their instruments... how they create, "noise", and turn it nto music.. is the best way I can describe it.. it's harmonic noise, like a beautiful destruction... like songs like tattered and torn, how it sounds circus like, and how they use the beer kegs, and the extra percussionist's.. the DJ/sampler.. the extra vocal's... the way Mick plays guitar, the sound they created on tattered and torn with a guitar is just.. what tha fuckin shit man.. makes you just think "god I don't wanna fuckin die"..lol.. Sorry.. i'veranted too long, somebody else start fuckin talkin.. jesus tittyfuckin ChristIf this has been done before, my bad, just point me in the dircetion of this previos post and i'll be seein my way there...
