    Default From Classical to Metal and the questions behind Metal

    I have been raised in a house where pianos and violins are played to no end, yet my brother and I later then discovered metal. We loved it, legends such as Metallica, Iron maiden, Slayer and Megadeth filled our teenage years. We still practice and listen to Classical works, but are still avid listeners to the metal scene.

    My question is that is there anyone of you ever went from Classical to Metal? Do you think any of the metal stereotypes are true? do you think metal as a form of art toxic?

    I myself rather think that metal educates, much like classical.

    I never knew anyone who went from classical to metal. I think smart people listen to metal. There are quiet a few studies about smart people listening to metal. Of course it seems back in the early 90's whenever i listened to metal,like metallica,iron maiden and such. It would drive my dad nuts, he went out and always bought stuff like country music cd's and made up lies about why i should listen to them. Like claiming that the former George Bush senior listened to a certain band. Why can't parents accept their kids for who they are?

    Metal is evil and satanic and talentless noise and I am literally a 1970s housewife, and furthermore,
    People who hide are afraid!

    People could say the same thing about rap music. Most rap music degrades women,talks about bling,bling,drivebys,and such. And many rappers seem to use the N word,which is a word of such extreme hatred, that no one should ever use that word.

    And most rap music is mostly a person talking over a beat,that was made on a computer.

    While metal,you have to learn how to play guitar,drums,bass,and even sing. Many of those singers who do death metal vocals practice to learn how to sing like that. If you tried to force a scream like that, you'd lose your voice.

    Yes rap is just talking over a beat. Ha Ha Ha. Anybody could do that am I right? The new generation doesn't know anything about real music like... Lead Zepplin and the Tolling Stones(?).

    Plus it is very bad when kids today listen to a rap and do what the rap people say (THAT'S HOW 9/11 HAPPENED)

    rap nowadays is crap, pure and utter garbage rappers rapping about things nothing other than drugs, partying, money and sex. But rap back then had some meaning, take 2pac shakur for example. back when i was a wee lad, listened to his song "til the end of time" and loved it. Now being a tad bit matured, I understand more and more about the song.

    maybe it's my youth that's letting myself love some of his works, but nevertheless, rap was better then than now.

    But now i think that the "popular" or "hit" songs that the media is trying to promote now is more toxic.

    Metal is awesome. Cool that you went from Classical to Metal. I went from Metal to Classical though but still like Metal. Just maybe not as much as in the day. And rap is horrible junk.

    edit: we have too many metal threads though, for real. Maybe we should make one into a megathread for the genre.

    After reading lots of books, one must take a break and, say, watch some TV.
