I dont hate ALL metal. I REALLY LOVE megadeth, iron maiden,dream theater,some metallica(first four albums) some pantera,and several others i cant think of right now. but i hate death metal because of the vocals, and all this black, drone and extreme stuff is just too much for me. I wish gmc had more classic rock love. Thats where its at for me and Thats what i grew up with. I totally respect anyones opinion, as long as they arent like "OMG Y00 IZ S00 S100P!D M3T4L IZ TEH R0xx0RZ!!!1!!1!! 0LD R0CK SUXX0RZZZ!!11!1"
There you go.

Haha, man I totally agree with you there. I cant stand people like that tongue.gif

Btw, I used to HATE extreme metal more than ANYTHING else a few years back tongue.gif Now I love it. Just saying biggrin.gif

I'll join the topic:

Favorite bands - at least for last 2 years (and less):

Rhapsody - powerful songs, great orchestral arrangements which i am a great fan of, great guitar playing by Luca and also very inspiring melodies.

Dark Moor - almost the same reason as Rhapsody but Dark Moor gives me that feeling of getting on the open stage, light wind, 10000 people out there listening to you and you just ROCK! (i know, just a dream but damn it feels good)

Outworld - do i really have to say why? Rusty's phenomenal musicianship and the whole band's maturity, amazing drums playing combined with heavy riffs and totally full of sense solos makes this band special to me.

Beyond Twilight - a new band (at least for me) i discovered recently, heavy playing and great vocals. Really have their own style - i like it!

Well these are the bands i listen most right now.

For me it has to be Boris

Boris is one of those bands that keeps you interested from a song to another. There music style differs from album to album even song to song. They pretty much holds the title of "Heaviest Band" for me. Heavy is not all this band possess, simplicity in melodies yet have a touch of melancholy atmosphere and trippy psychadelia is enough for me to give them the title favorite band. There is really nothing to say bout Boris's music, you just feel the heaviness and the sense of destruction and depression sinks down to a new level of low. The other half of boris is a grungy with the sense of punk style heaviness and fastness.

Okay...

I know everyone's gonna hate me for this but....

I have to say that, in all honesty, my favorite band is probably Fall Out Boy. Why is this? Well...I've always liked music, but I never really thought of the possibility of becoming a musician myself until one day I saw the video for "Grand Theft Autumn/Where is your Boy" on Fuse's Oven Fresh. I watched the whole video, loved it, and as soon as it was over I was like "wait F*** what was the name of that band!?" I later found out and bought all their CDs. I've been listening to Fall Out Boy for about 4 years now, and all their songs have meaning to me. I admit that their not particularly worthy of musical merit, but I love the vocal style of Patrick. I'm not particularly fond of the lyrics, but whatever.

The thing is, Fall Out Boy's songs remind me of old memories. They have sentimental value. And they're pretty fun to sing along to.

This facet does not mean that I don't listen to many more talented and skilled musicians. In fact, listening to Fall Out Boy motivates me to become a great musician, so that I could maybe one day start a band that has similar vocal hooks and poppy sound, but with actually good musicianship and song-writing skill as well.

Among other favorites: Jupiter Sunrise, The Academy Is..., Motion City Soundtrack, Death Cab for Cutie, Sigur Ros, John Mayer, John Legend, Mute Math, Best Interest (broken up now, but you should ALL check them out), Explosions in the Sky, Paramore, Brand New, Jimmy Eat World, Jason Mraz, Mae, Maroon 5, and many many more.


no hate from me, haha. i understand how you feel. the memories thing. it's like that for me with bands like Blink 182 (which pretty much ushered in FOB style music into the big mainstream) linkin park, sum 41, and, sadly, avril lavigne.

in 8th / 9th grade those were really the only bands i listened to. it was my escape. avril lavigne... haha. really just liked hearing her voice and stuff. being a shy little kid, it was nice thinking that a girl could be singing about me like that. blink, just always puts me in a good mood. and through all of high school i could turn to their lyrics and relate in some way. sum 41, first band i listened to. linkin park, just how to deal with all the crap you can go through some times. angry music for angry moods.

and yeah, it was pretty annoying when FOB went big. i understand your anger. i know alot of friends that felt the same way when American Idiot dropped. instead of being a "weird green day lover" they were just a "trend follower". sucks majorly. i hope that never happens to one of my favorite bands! (although i would be happy that they made it big / made money etc)

1) Rush
Tremendous musicians and composers. Have never been scared to re-invent themselves. Geddys vocal style isn't for everyone, but there you go.

2) Rage Against The Machine
Innovative guitar textures and thoughtful lyrics against a rockin rhythm section!

3) Joe Satriani
OK, more an individual than a band, but he's as good as a band! The only rock guitar instrumentalist that consistently keeps me interested in that genre.

4) Red Hot Chili Peppers
Great songwriting. Fleas bass lines. The emotion John wrings from a guitar. Need I say more?


There's a bunch of other bands I listen to a lot, but those 4 have probably had the biggest effect on my attitude to playing the guitar.

im really looking forward to their next album, too bad both their drummer and guitarist left tough :/

I dont know what the huge love of classic rock is about personally, sure listening to music that was about when my dad was young is fine, but overly emphasizing on just listening too that, it seems wrong, we all need to pick up sticks and move along, why linger around the past, when you can invent something new?

Also gotta add one band -

Manic Street Preachers - Light, Simple, Clever, Politically Oriented stuff, reinventing their sound and approach along the way, versatile.

Perhaps i am inventing something new, have you ever thought about that? i dont see what right you have to say i just listen to that, considering my other posts. Have you ever considered its what I like?

Anyway, Next to Iron Maiden id have to say these bands...

2) Blind Guardian - Vivid Lyrics, Amazing Melodies, Riffs, and Solo's To Create A Fantastic World.

3) Opeth - Amazing Versatility, Vocal and Guitar wise, some of the most memorable riffs to ever grace the planet, even though they are a bit abstract at times, (Thats why they kickass!! smile.gif

4) Nightwish - Amazing vocals, lyrics, creates a very deep atmosphere of Reassurance
and very soothing landscapes.

5) Nile - No band for quite some time impressed me as much untill i heard nile, they opened me up to a new level of guitar, music, and talent, they are just GODS

6) Iced Earth - One of the first Metal bands i heard outside of Priest, Maiden, Sabbath, Metallica, And Megadeth, the inspired me to search out bands in every genre, showed me one of my favorite songwriters, Jon Schaffer, and created "The Glorius Burden" which is album that i hold above all others Except Maiden, Jon Schaffers lyrics are So vivid, and touching, when Tim Ownes sings the, it gives me chills, and makes me feel what is going on. Amazing

7) Steve Vai - One of the most talented, versatile, inspiring, and emotional guitarists ive ever heard, he has songs for no matter what mood im in. He just flat out inspires

8) Metal as a whole - No genre of music is as diverse as Metal (I belive this to be fact to, not oppinion) from Blues, Jazz, Classical, Folk from hundreds of countires, different languages, Death, Power, Speed, Viking, Thrash, Goth, Symphonic whatever, the amount of diversity keeps me wanting more, and never fails to entertain me, calm me, and just make feel as happy as can be.

There's no reason why anyone should stop listenening to Classic Rock just like theres no reason for people to stop listening to Metal, or Punk-Rock, or whatever you're into. There will always be people who like to listen to that genre of music.

And lets say for example, that a new band comes out with a totally classic rock sound. I know a lot of people that would love to listen to new band with old-style sound like that. Would you tell them to stop "overly emphasizing" on Classic Rock too?

Just because its older doesn't mean people can't like it just as much as Pantera, Opeth, or any band.

Woah woah, you all seem to have construed this as a personal attack on your heritage or w/e, let me assure you, its not. To put what I was saying into context - There seems to be at the moment a surge towards self deprecating genre's such as Rap and Hip-Hop, meanwhile everyone else with half a brain seems to be listening to Classic Rock, sure, its good stuff, I listen to a bit of Zepplin and Floyd every once in a while. I'm just commenting on the fact that people seem to remain overtly nostalgic on what has happened and thus nothing intresting, or expressive seems to be happening in today's music. I'm not for ignoring History, but accepting what has happened of interest and moving forward with it. Guitarman, it wasnt meant as an attack on you or what you do, hell, I dont even know you, but it was more of a social comment in general, please dont be offended.
