Well, in this topic (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=134770) we drifted off on a musical tangent which kind of defeats the purpose of the thread, but happens to interest me, as well as some other people.

Post about your musical preferences, post what you are listening too, if you play an instrument, or perform in a band, share that too!

I have currently been in 4 bands in my life. The first one was a semi-sweet punk band called "Trevor" where I played rythm guitar. Then I decided that I really suck at playing guitar (unless it is punk chordes), so me, and a guy I met in the Navy (he saw me wearing a Ministry T-Shirt, and we hit it off) decided to start an industrail band. We called it "Vent" , because it was a means to "vent off" our frustrations, and had some cool possibilites. We even made some killer logos based on it. Vent, actually went places, we did shows, had stickers, and got airplay on the radio. It was the zenith of my life!

Simultaneously, I was in ANOTHER band with some guys who had VERY DIFFERENT musical tastes, which involved Pavement, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Sonic Youth. This band was called "Drive Naked, Save Clothes". In THIS band we recoreded EVERYTHING we ever played, and had dozens of tapes where we would filter out what we thougth was cool. I became the singer in both of these bands, because some guys thought I had a good voice, and everyone else was too chicken to do it. This is where I gained my confidence as a singer. The advantage to being in two bands at once, is that occasionally, I could adopt certain poeple to play in our live shows from each group. Vent was too man gig, which most of the music was derived from synthesizers and sampling, but our live shows were more effective with real musicians, which is wear the DNSC guys really helped us out in major ways.

Then later after really missing the music gigs, I joined a metal band called "Syntryx", who were mostly doing Ozzy , Megadeth, and M.O.D. type stuff. I agreed to learn the songs, but I managed to turn them onto Alice In Chains, so we did two Alice covers as a compromise (for me having to learn how to do such metal bull**** like Ozzy, and Megadeth). We performed "Man In The Box", and "Would?". Even though they all broke up before our first gig. Most all of the members told me, that I was the only "REAL" singer they ever had....ah bands, and the madness/drugs that follow.

Currently, I am not in a band, but wanting to get back into it before I get too old. This time I want to do some grunge type stuff (Staind/Stone Temple Pilots) After I get my bills squared away, we will see what happens. I love singing! :)

Currently listening too: Ministry: "Shove"

My band, as mentioned in the other thread was/is called Phatsaq. We wrote all of our own material. Most of the song titles are too...Well, they're vulgar, but not in a gross way. More like haha vulgar. But too vulgar to post here. If I had to say what we sounded like, I'd say a more upbeat Eyehategod, Iron Monkey, Bongzilla, or Crowbar with the occasional odd timing thrown in just to keep it interesting for us to play. I guess it was kinda like sludgy stoner type metal, for lack of a better term/vocabulary. So yeah...that was my 15 minutes in the sun.

As for what I'm into these days: Aborted, Acid Bath, Agents of Oblivion, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, alexisonfire, Amber Asylum, American Head Charge, Anal C**t, Between the Burried and Me, Bongzilla, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Burnt By the Sun, Butthole Surfers, Cannibal Corpse, Clutch, Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar, David Allan Coe, Dead Kennedys, Dead Milkmen, Dead to Fall, Deadboy and the Elephantmen, Deeds of Flesh, Dillenger Escape Plan, Dysrhythmia, Epoch of Unlight, Eternal Suffering, Eyehategod, Faith No More, Fantomas, Frank Black, Genocide Superstars, Goatwhore, Gravediggers Jokebook, Gwar, Hank Williams III, Helmet, High on Fire, Iron Monkey, Johnny Cash, Kyuss, Lard, Lovage, Mastodon, Meatjack, Melvins, Meshuggah, Ministry, Mondo Generator, Mr. Bungle, Mudvayne, Nile, Pig Destroyer, Prick, Six Feet Under, Soilent Green (probably my all time favorite band, if I had to chose only one), Still Breathing, The Red Chord, Today is the Day, and Tomahawk to name a few.


Listening to Goatwhore-Sky Inferno (in my sig). I'm going to see them with Deicide next month on the 9th. I can't wait.

Musical Preferences
I'm primarily a Jazz lover, and also Classical, but also like 'instrumentally oriented' rock music (as well as 80's stuff and other rock I liked as a kid in the 70's like The Who).

My leanings are heavily towards Avante Garde music - loose (if any) rhythm and tonality. My classical tastes run in the Romantic to Modern as my favorites - so from Beethovan on out. Which is interesting since two of my favorites are Wagner and Reich - Richard Wagner who used the largest and most complex orchestras and orchestration, and Steven Reich who is a major composer in the 'Minimalist' genre ... which has very limited tonal range of motion and typically small groups.

Musical Instruments
My primary instrument is Bass - I played in Jazz, Fusion and Rock groups for years. But my first instrument was guitar, so I've always maintained some guitar chops. I have considerable manual dexterity, allowing me to play very fast but poorly constructed runs ;) In college I needed to learn basic piano skills for a music theory class I took (I got a 'minor' in electronic music and it satisfied all of my humanities ;) ), so I embraced that wholeheartedly.

So now I'm pretty decent at keys as well as bass and guitar. Most of my music life in the last 15 years or so has been playing around in my home studio, doing some light composition stuff.

Now Playing?
I'm listening to Pat Metheny right now.

Well, since we're on the topic of music, I need your opinions. The Screen Savers on TechTV came across an mp3 site that was cheap. 0.01 cents per mb. You read it right. All of MP3 (http://www.allofmp3.com)
It's a Russian site. When you click the english lang. link, you have to open the site again in another window. Anyways, back to the question: Is it safe to buy music from this site? You can use Paypal to buy music (when it's working). On the show, they said it was easy and a great way to get music, but they didn't know about the legal end of it...

As for my music preferences, I've been getting into some new age stuff and remixes of game music here (http://www.ocremix.org/).

Hehe

I’ve played Saxophone for about 8 or 9 years now. Other than my high schools bands, which I didn't really care about much, I've played in 3 different bands. One was a little ska band with me on tenor/alto sax, a buddy of mine on trombone, another friend on trumpet, one guitarist, and a drummer. We tried to play a variety of music, but the band was really just a gathering of friends. I was in another band very similar to this when I moved from Chicago to California.

My biggest group experience was while I was living in Michigan. Lansing to be precise. I was becoming more involved with my local Pentecostal church. From my church I volunteered to help out a local Christian drug rehabilitation center, where I worked at for 6 months. When I got there I found out that one of their biggest ways to raise money for the center was playing at churches all over the state of Michigan.

I met one of the head pastors, who was also the bandleader, and asked if they needed a saxophone player, and I became part of the band.

This band had to be the most musically talented group of people I had ever known in my life. The band leader played the keyboard in a fashion I never imagined. He did a crazy bass walk (since we had no bass) on one side of the keyboard, and played the rhythm and melodies on the other side WHILE singing lead. The guy was AMAZING. Then we had a guy working at the center who played Guitar. He was a previous "student" at the center, and also happened to be a fantastic guitarist. He was our only guitar player, but he and our keyboardist switched off between playing lead and rhythm.

Then we had a pretty good drummer for Tennessee who was still a "student" at the center. He played along with the band perfectly. And we also had 3 backup singers, providing all the vocals we would need.

I came in not knowing what to do at all. The leader just told me to cut loose, and I slowly did. After about 2 months I became a completely different Sax player. It was amazing. I switched between playing the harmony and melody with the guitar and keys, and was becoming more and more adept at improvising, which was sometimes forced upon me XD.

We played mainly Gospel and a "Christian" version of rock & roll. It may sound corny to some, but I think we rocked.


Anyways, I'm listening to Roy Buchanan right now.

I play guitar and bass,.. and have a pretty nice collection, thanks mostly to my dad who's a professional jazz guitarist and who sends me all his "hand-me-downs' when he gets tired of them.
See them here: http://66.90.64.18/showthread.php?s=&threadid=113039

Most of my playing is noodling around the house these days... I've just been too busy with work to try to get involved with a band... which is kinda ironic, since I work at the biggest music college on the east-coast.

I've been listening to a lot of Prog-Rock (Tull, Yes, The Dixie Dregs...) these days, although I really do like everything. I wish I played jazz better, because I'm sure my dad would have me gigging with him if I did.

Now playing: Type O Negative - Black No 1

That's an awsome song. I seen Type O' open for Danzig back in 94, and Type O' pretty much upstaged Glenn by leaps and bounds.

Seems you and I like alot of the same stuff. At least you don't listen to that fake ass hack otherwise known as Marilyn Manson. (all the fake goth kids listen to that moron.) David Bowie (my absolute FAVORITE solo artist),The Cure, Skinny Puppy, Misfits, Danzig, Killing Joke, Tori Amos, Nick Cave, Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Jimi Hendrix, Love And Rockets, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Clash, Type O' Negative, and Nine Inch Nails... All of those are in my CD collection.

I have a large collection of old school industrial bands: 16 Volt, Evil Mothers, Pigface, KMFDM, Lard, Skrew, Chemlab, Pailhead, Revolting Cocks, 1,000 Homo Djs, Download, Coil, Tear Garden, Frontline Assembly, Front 242, Nitzer Ebb, Godflesh, Die Krupps, Die Warzau, Throbbing Gristle, Razed In Black, Meat Beat Manifesto, Hate Dept, Numb, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Leæther Strip, Controlled Bleeding, Spahn Ranch, Young Gods, Excessive Force, and Sister Machine Gun.

I don't listen to as MUCH of it as I used too, but I will pop in some Skinny Puppy when I am writing or doing some kind of graphic work on the pc, and some Ministry when I am fragging online. Lately I been listening to Ministry ALOT again....hence the av and sig combo.

Now playing: Skinny Puppy - "Deep Down Trauma Hounds"

I think I like Type O' because they don't take themselves too seriously, but they sound REALLY good in concert. They guy's Bella Lou Gosi voice kind of bugs me after a while.... (I guess that is more your dept) I never got into the doom metal thing.

Straight edge 4 life yo.

Groovy, the straight edge bands that you named, are mostly punk, straight edge was (debatebly) started by Minor Threat, as you suggested, how ever, Minor Threat is not hardcore, but more punk. I would be happy to post some links to afew hardcore band sites if anyone is interested, but it DOES seem that alot of people around here have hardcore confused with metal, heavy metal, or punk of some kind... they are miles apart.

Staight edge is not new, by any means. Straight Edge is a movement of high morals, no smoking/drinking/pre-marital sex. Hardcore is a style of music, with lots of break downs, lots "hard" music... I will post some links to music if you would like.

Oh, funny fact: Amy Lee didn't have a solo in her duet with Seether, because Seether's label doesn't like the editing of voices.

I think you meant to say Nirvana. Here's a band with mediocre songs, a couple o' top 40 hits, etc...Nothing special. But as soon as the lead singer offs himself, "they were geniuses!", "Kurt was a great poet and songwriter!" and all that crap. None of which, was uttered or ever found to be relevant until the discovery of his body I might add.

Yeah, so they helped usher in grunge. BFD. Is that really something to write home about? I mean, as far as I can tell all they did by helping bring so called "grunge" to the fore front of pop rock music, was set a huge trend of self loathing, woe is me, whiny fake-ass pop rock to follow. Try to turn on a contemporary pop rock station and NOT be bombarded with pre fab angst ridden tales about some over privileged, white, junky kids hard times. I thank Nirvana for that. Because until they came along, rock music was all about getting laid, getting high, hot rods...you know, the same stuff rap music is all about now. Not that those subject matters are cool, but I'm certainly tired of hearing a grown man "sing" about how bad his life is. Yeah. Doinking a model on a pile of money every night sure sounds rough to me, Mr. I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me.

Linkin Park seems to be the worst band in the world for this sort of behavior though. This guy, will actually make up being molested, and write songs about it if he thinks it might put one more razor to a white teenage dumbass kids wrist, or milk one more sympathetic tear from the cow eyes of some retarded female fan (groupy, if she's REALLY LUCKY). And he'll admit it in Rolling Stone magazine too. And to make matters worse, they have a guy rapping about how ****ty things are too. Rap, while I hate it, is some of the most macho **** ever. But then you get this guy talking about "oh damn, I tried. But nobody likes me" or something along those lines but less original than even that. It's only depressing and moving in the fact that it makes me want to eat a bullet or better still, shoot them, just so I might not be subjected to it again. But then if they died it would just be more whiny ass pop rock martyrs to be hailed as genius. :mad:

Pre Nirvana rock also did suck, dudes with big hair and tights *ugh* Rock started to to get way too pop in the late 70s, the what led to the original indy/punk scene.......

I am scratching my head trying to think of an exciting developing form of music that is happening *right now* .....

*tries to organise music by era*

50s....rock, blues, early soul
60....rock, soul plus pop plus psychedelic sh*t, the beginnings of the 'rock lifestyle'
70.....all of the above, gaining momentum, but new sounds emerge pop+soul = disco pop+rock = glam rock. As a reaction to all this....punk
80s..... sh*t is all over the place... the new music is rap, formed from the aftermath of when white people took over disco/dance hall and messed it up. hard rock becomes metal..... crossovers start happening, grunge creeps in
90. early 90s. a relative golden. metal, hip hop etc all had their own energies and werent totally corrupted by commercialism yet...

late 90s to now.....electronica has come and gone :( even hip hop and punk have their sickening top 40 variants... music has become a mish mash of extremes and re-hashes...

with the advent of mp3s, p2p the music industry has changed dramatically......who knows what the industry will look like in 10 yrs time, let alone 50.....

What I play:
I've been playing guitar for about 4 years now...
I've been really not doing much within those 4 years, but once 2004 hit, I just started practicing like crazy, 5 hours a day, learning music, making my own stuff, learning how to read music, all that good stuff. And now I gotta say, I'm pretty good.

Bands I was/am in:
I had a band before called "Motto". It was with my friend Tyler, and my other friend Nick. We didnt do ANYTHING. I though Nick had a drumset, but he didn't. So that was 3 months wasted there. And Tyler couldn't even play bass. o_0

Now, I'm in a band. We had a name for last year's talent show, and that name was "Reverb". That isn't our name anymore. Infact, we don't have a name yet, on account of its really hard to think of a good one. Well, we play in the classic rock / blues style. And we are currently the most popular band in my highschool. (Honored by the Seniors!!:D) We consist of Jake, he sings (really good) and plays the lead/solo stuff. Danny, who plays bass. Alton, who plays drums. And me, Nick, who plays Rhythm Guitar. I play all the guitar that goes in. He mostly plays the fills, and really super fast solo stuff.

Music I like:
Well, for a genre, I prefer rock, but bands are like:
Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band, AC/DC, The Clash, The Cure, The Beatles, Nickelback, Tomte (A German Band), The Eagles, AND MANY MORE...

What I'm listening to now:
Money - Pink Floyd

New music (in the last 4 years) has been ALL ****. The golden age of Rock IMO was the end of the millenium, with KoRn fathering Nu Metal, Linkin Park breeding the only successful hybrid of Rock and Rap, the sympathetic hard hitting of Staind, and realization that Fred Durst is indeed the biggest piece of **** walking the Earth. There was the anti-conformist Rage Against the Machine saying what most people thought, pretty boy led Bush showing us prettyboys aren't just for pop anymore, Disturbed talking about the darker side of humanity, and Kittie showing girlies aren't just for oogoling.

Now people just need to drag Durst, Good Charolette, everyband starting with THE, Franz Fernindand, Modest Mouse, and Amy Lee into a hole, cover em in gasoline, and toss a few zippos in and watch the bon-fire go.

I think Audioslave is pretty good. I always admired Tom Morello's guitar noise, but was never too fond of Zack's nasel rapping.

I don't see what the big deal is. Soundgarden was around forever, and RATM were around for a while. Nobody ever complained that much about either or, but you put certain members of both groups together, and everyone jumps on the Haterwagon. I remember the same thing happened when Coverdale and Page made an album together.

Seriously though, compared to what else is out there, are they really THAT bad?!?!? Limp Biskit (Fred "loser" Durst ) comes to mind. Fred and Biskit is probably the worst thing to happen to rock and roll since ****ing Elvis died.

Linkin Park is not the WORST act out there. They are the ONLY ones that really seemed to blend rap and metal together smoothely, and still sound original. However I will be the first to say that Meteora was a lousy album, and I am starting to notice a pattern that they seem to follow. All of the songs really DO sound the same, and they are hiding behind a facade of really fancy coverart and anime inspired videos. I don't think they are going to be around much longer IMO. Alot of what they do sounds very processed, fake and over exagerated. It took them 3 years to come up with less than 30 minutes worth of music, and metora was mediocre at best.

Dunno about Velvet Revolver, because I never heard them.

You know, music always amuses me. People are the ones who **** music up, not the artists. People will rip on each other and get into big wars over which music sucks, and which music doesn't. Then when you get to be my age, you don't have to impress your freinds anymore, so you just listen to whatever YOU think sounds cool, and don't have to give a **** about what people think.

LOL! This reminds me of the time where I had to explain my music to people who came and saw our band play. They would want to know "What IS industrial music?" You try to explain that it is not really all that defined, then some hot rod comes and claims that Fear Factory is the best Industrial Band in the world, then I would argue that Fear Factory is a death metal band who likes to play with samples and keyboards from time to time. I actually was into Death Metal for a short period of time. (Deicide, Napalm Death, Godflesh, M.O.D.) Any of you remember a term called "thrash metal". Yeah, exactly. Ten years from now, it will all be found in the "Metal" section of your local music store. Only those local record stores that cares to take the time to micromanage every type of music by what it happens to be known as "at the time", will do so.

Then there was this horrible time after Nirvana dominated the radio, and group that had a singer wearing a sweater, or members with mussy hair were considered "alternative", a category which still bothers the ever loving **** out of me. It is like record companies wanted to say "Alternative", as in, "you deal with that ALTERNATIVE music, we'll stick to Bon Jovi and Janet Jackson over here." My conclusion, there is no such thing as "alternative" music, and you don't hear that term much now anydays.

I have been to record stores and found Ministry in both the pop, AND in the Metal sections, then some stores have an "industrial section", and EMF and Jesus Jones winds up in there. :rolleyes: Doom, Goth, Glitter, Industrial....Hard Core? Seriously who gives a ****?

As it is, nobody ever really knew what industrial music is, and somehow Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails got to whear it as a badge of honor, while the rest of the really cool bands either broke up, or faded out so much, that barely anyone knows about them anymore. I only found out last week that both Ministry AND Skinny Puppy had new albums out, and it was a terrible feeling that it took me THAT long to figure it out.

I remember it took me about 5 years to figure out WTF Ska music was. Then once I did, I STILL hated it. The same thing is happening to me now with EMO. Don't even mess with me on this "hard core" thing.

I think alot of really young ignorant people hide behind music in high school. Then there is always the arguments about who is true to the stlye they claim to play, and who is a commercial sellout. Keep in mind that MOST of rock in roll, is all recycled material. Trent Reznor did not do ANYTHING that Skinny Puppy, Ministry, and Killing Joke were not doing ten-20 years before him. Nirvana did not do anything that The Pixies couldn't do ten times better!!!! New Order recycled themselves out of the ashes of Joy Division, and Even Elvis ripped off of southern Rythm and Blues.

My advice, listen to whatever you like, don't worry about what people think.

In theory you would think so, but if you listen to Opeth, and then listen to Theatre Of Tragedy, you will hear that the feelings in them are different. While the acoustic guitars of Opeth spells out "doom" in every sense of the word, Theatre Of Tragedy's sopran Liv Kristine combines darkness with beauty, and it's more romantic ;)


"What IS industrial music?" When people ask me why I, the 'evil satanist', is listening to techno on my discman, I usually explain it like this; "It's not techno, it's industrial. While the techno-crap is oftenly purely computer created, industrial bands actually play instruments. Instead of the lyrics consisting of a horny girl saying "oh yeah, give it to me" several times, industrial music often have complex lyrics dealing with often dark issues. In other words; you could call it techno-rock." ;p

My advice, listen to whatever you like, don't worry about what people think. Now there's some good advice :p
Most other people in my school haven't heard of half of the bands I like, and consider the rest as either "boring crap"(tori amos, theatre of tragedy) or "dreadfull noise"(darkthrone, NIN), but guess what; I'm different and proud of it ;) :p


Now Playing: Bauhaus - The Sanity Assasin

[edit] Another thing I find hard to explain is the difference between black and death metal
The main difference would be how black metal often is about satan, and snow-filled kingdoms, while death metal often is more macabre...
Another difference is how most black metal bands wear corpse paint, while the death bands don't
Other than that, you'll have to listen to the music to hear the difference :/

The thing about Linkin Park is I never took them seriously in their lyrics. I just like the music cause it sounds good.

But I know thousands of hormonally enraged, depressed, PMS-ed girls listen to them every day and take it to heart.

These are the girls who listen to emo too.

Someone I know once said: "it's like music, if you like it, you like it. If you don't you don't. We not stupid critics who overanalyze every part of the song."

I would also like to add to that: Honestly, if you like it, listen to it. If you don't, move to another section of the store. Nothing too big ;)

Thing that always worked for KMFDM is that they NEVER took themselves or their music seriously.

Lyrics from "Sucks":

Sucks

We like talking dirty
We smoke and we drink
We're KMFDM and all other bands stink

Our music is sampled
Totally fake
It's done by machines
'Coz they don't make mistakes

We don't have no lyrics
Our message is nil
We hate all deejays
They're makin' us ill

Whatever we tell you
Is meant to be crap
We hate all music
And especially rap

We don't like Michael Jackson
We hate Depeche Mode
We don't care for Madonna
Or Kylie Minogue

KMFDM sucks!

Our records have stickers
With a warning from Tipper
Cause they're no good for kids
If we get her we'll strip her

KMFDM forward
The ultimate sound
And a message from satan
If you turn it around

You might think we're stupid
But we're way above it
We don't give a ****
And the kids just love it

We won't sell to a major
For a couple of bucks
No doubt about it
KMFDM sucks!

I just decided, since I'm tired of Mod and SuperMod PM's telling me how much of a jackass I am and since this is where it all started, I'm only gonna say this once:

KBell, don't ever ****ing quote me again. All you people who said I was being stupid, I never wanna see you get all pissy with me next time I say something about your opinions. And I don't give a damn about anyone's status here. Nobody wants to stand behind me when I get told my opinions don't matter, I'll start being the first to remind everyone of how much THEIR opinion matters.

Back on topic, all that hardcore stuff is just...I dunno, bleh. I like hard music, but the harder it gets, the more aggravating it gets - depending on the band. I dunno if that made and sense...

Slipknot is horrible. Any group with more than 5 people is obviously lacking individual talent and so they have to make up with overwhelming numbers.

So stop the flaming, and get on with the letting the people know what music you listen to/play.

Yes, I admit, meteora does suck. It's too poppish. Hybrid Theory was true rock blended with rap. That's the reason Meteora is sitting in my closet collecting dust and my Hybrid Theory disk is right next to my xbox, along with all of my other cds.

And I don't give a damn about anyone's status here. Nobody wants to stand behind me when I get told my opinions don't matter, I'll start being the first to remind everyone of how much THEIR opinion matters.

Back on topic, all that hardcore stuff is just...I dunno, bleh. I like hard music, but the harder it gets, the more aggravating it gets - depending on the band. I dunno if that made and sense...

Slipknot is horrible. Any group with more than 5 people is obviously lacking individual talent and so they have to make up with overwhelming numbers.

I wonder if I have to put IMO so I don't piss anyone off again. You'd think in a thread about opinions the point would get across...apparently not.

Listen bub, I dunno what crawled up your colon and projectile pissed in your wheaties.

However, you can't talk to users like that.

Cool off for the next...say, 3 days. That's an opinion you'll have to give a rat's ass about.

:D umm.... yeah :)

j/k

seriously, groovyy mentioned this above and its damn true : When you are younger, what music you are into can often affect they way you are perceived, or the specific type of kids you hang around with....

sure, when you are older and working you can gel with ppl who like the same bands/hobbies etc you do, but as part of day to day work etc, you have to get on with it and ignore these distinctions. My supervisor is into jazz, a colleague is into gospel music, im not a huge fan of wither but we all get along and work together well.......This prolly happened less so when in school....

Like groovy said, as you get older you dont care about lookin cool or not, you just listen to music 'coz you do... so if there is a poppy song that catches my ear, what they hey, doesnt mean I'll hate it just because it charted (beyonce's video's help too :D)

Tyrion, Kain I enjoy reading everyone's opinions, Im sure many others do too. In fact it's what I come here for, just to see what other are thinking about topics Im interested in :D whether anyone agrees or not is irrelevant, as long as you get to express it(and do so in a respectful manner) is the only thing that matters...IMO anyways :D

They already broke up once in 1980, but then they realised that they can work together, so i don't think we need to worry about that (I hope :))

I actually picked up Pump and Permanent Vacation when I went to Toronro in August. Pretty good CD's! My favorite Aerosmith CD (Not including greatest hits albums ) would have to be either Toys in the Attic (http://aerosmithlyrics.homestead.com/ToysInTheAttic.html) or Live: Bootleg * (http://aerosmithlyrics.homestead.com/LiveBootleg.html)

* Caution! Contains some lyrics not approaite for children. :D Also, it's not really a bootleg, simply the name of the album. If you like Aerosmith non-live, wait until you hear them live, whether in concert or one of their many live CD's :)

With 1000 Homo DJs; Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails , did the main vocals. After a some stupid thing with Trent's contract, the vocals had to be removed for some strange reason. If you managed to snag a copy of 1,000 Homo Dj's ONLY release, your a lucky person! Ministry re-recorded the song with Al doing the vocals, and they played it on countless tours between 1992 and present.(I know this because I been following this band relentlessly since 1989.) In 2001, they finally released the song (with Al's vocals) on Ministry's Greatest Fits album. I have to say, I was not a huge fan of this particular song at first, but it the repitious hook grew on me over the years, and now I love it.



Yeah, too bad Billy Corgan's new bad Zwan didn't pan out too well either. Maybe he'll get the Pumpkins together again...that would be awesome.

I think the entire reason they broke up in the first place is the fact that Billy Corgan is such a egotistical head case. It did not take the pumkins long to go from local Chicago, band to mega rock stars. I would know, because I saw Smashing Pumpkins after "Gish", when they were the "opening act" for Jane's Addiction. This was 1991, at the Aragon Ballroom. I saw them later in 1993, and didn't think they were all that great. They DID have some good songs, and I have alot of the CDs they did. They did the best cover of "Landslide" I EVER heard.

Black metal at it's purest and rawest <3


Pie™, your going to have to "educate" me on these different classed of metal, because I am just getting too old. When I first discovered "metal" the big bands were Anthrax, Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, and Metallica. Soon after came "Thrash" Metal which was Suicidal Tendencies, Antisocial, and M.O.D., and Overkill. Then there was "Death Metal" which was Godflesh, Sepultura, Napalm Death, and Cannibal Corpse. I am AWARE, but not familiar with the so called "Goth Metal" wich consists of bands like "Cradle of Filth" (?) and perhaps Type O' Negative. When I first started paying attention to your avatars and sigs, "King Diamond" came to mind, but it was never my thing. I was never a HUGE metalhead, but I had a few favorite bands. Namely Suicidal Tendencies, Napalm Death, Sepultura, Godflesh, Faith No More (though arguably not considered metal), and Pantera. Then there was the "cheese metal" which consisted of the "pretty boy bands" such as Poison, Slaughter, Firehouse, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Great White, Def Leppard, Extreme, and Skid Row. I fell out of reach with all of "metal" when bands like Slipknot, and Mudvayne started charting "hits".

Maybe you can bring me up to speed.

Color me lucky then. It shouldn't be too hard to find though. I got mine on a Black Sabbath tribute album in the early-mid 90's.

Maybe you can bring me up to speed. Uh, well...
Black metal was "invented" in the late 80s, when the Norwegian band Mayhem, headed by Euronymous, refined their sound to something colder and rawer than their prevoius death metal efforts.
Other bands followed, like Darkthrone, Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, and Carpathian Forest.
The "black metal scene" formed around 1993, and got a pretty bad reputation when some band members, including Fenriz from Darkthrone and the infamous Varg Vikernes started burining down old Norwegian chruches. To this day only a few are left standing.
Another tragedy that shocked the scene was when Vikernes (then in Mayhem) murdered Eruronymous over a record deal. Vikernes has since been to jail several times, and is currently writing the songs for his band Burzum while in jail.
Later, never bands has taken the head, like Immortal and Cradle Of Filth
Other old-school bands have taken a more commercial route, giving out singles and heading charts. These include Dimmu Borgir and Satyricon.



Um, i hope that clarified it at least a little for you... :/

Cradle of Filth most definitely isn't goth metal. Goth metal is metal influenced by celtic, classical and opera, often with a soprano vocalist. Listen to bands like Nightwish, After Forever, Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation to get the impression of what it is. And don't forget to mention that the Goth genre isn't like goth metal at all ;)

Goth is more like a breed between punk, indie, and rock :)

[edit] and the guys in my sig (l to r) is HellCommander Nattefrost (Carpathian Forest), Fenriz (Darkthrone), and Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth) :)

I am reminded of something that was typed on the outter sleeve of Type O' Negative's "Bloody Kisses" album.

"Don't mistake lack of talent for genius."

This thread comes to mind. ;)

What he said.

Weren't Venom also the first to even use the term "black metal"? Anyway, I'm not too into the black metal thing. Unless we're talking the bastardized American incarnation of black metal, Goatwhore. I love those guys.

well, Venom (http://www.metalstorm.ee/bands/view_band.php?band_id=venom) vs Bathory (http://www.metalstorm.ee/bands/view_band.php?band_id=venom) by pure dates Venom did start first, but if you are refearing to the black style vocals that bathory made so popular, then well, yes, they (or he ;)) started those. :D
