    Smile Metal Music (Death Metal, Black Metal, Thrash Metal, Doom Metal, etc)

    I am a huge classical music fan, being into composers like Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Carl Orff, Arvo Part, Paul Ducas, Penderecki, etc., but I want to start a thread on my favorite genre of music. Heavy Metal.

    Heavy Metal is possibly the most controversial form of music today, as well as one of the most unpopular, and pure. You may ask why pure? The answer is this. The form of music, yet very unpopular, continues to have so many extremely passionate followers, and musicians who create some of the most technical music in the world. Some would be suprised to hear this, but do you want to know why this form of music is so technical, like these songs?

    One of heavy metal's oldest ancestors is classical music. Most metal musicians have had training classical music for just as long, if not, more than metal training.

    Discuss the genre here, and what you think about it.

    Metal Head: Metal and classical has that in common that both are able to create emotions that are strong, mighty and sublime. Almost no other music can do that.

    I love metal. It is the best way of channeling strength by art.
    (Together with much classical of course)

    Do you like Sabaton?

    PanterA - Cemetery Gates got me hooked
    Extreme - Nuno Bettencourt is just an amazing guitarist
    Metal was really good from the 70's-90's everything has kind of gone down the simple road.
    Now I know there are still some decent bands but they probably started between the 70's - 90's. I like Metallica but I dont love Metallica after the napster thing they have lost their flare. I like Down, Crowbar , and Corrosion Of Conformity which would fit in the Sludge/Doom/Stoner metal genres

    Since when could heavy Metal create sweet beauty?

    ?!?! Erm... Dirge For November by Opeth, 50 Million Year Trip by Kyuss, Life by Devin Townsend, Pink Maggit by Deftones, Vermillion Pt. 2 by Slipknot (yes, that's right, Slipknot ), Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden...

    While we're comparing classical and metal, what does everyone think of Apocalyptica? For those that may not know, they basically play Metallica covers on four cellos.

    Well I'm not really a fan of metal but I do like Gary Numan, and his new stuff is very dark, guitar based stuff, a la Manson/Nine Inch nails.

    I live in an area where you have hard rock bands like Leonard Skynard, and
    other southern rock bands as well as Elvis inpersonaters. I just love Freebird.

    Ah yea Lynnyrd Skynnyrd were big in the 70s (they did the song Sweet Home Alabama)
    I cant stand Elvis, way over rated, and all the impersonators always do him when he was in the 70s with the big white suit, way over the top.

    I never cared for Elvis either. I like the softer rock. Ask Krummhorn.
