Good lord, it's just a genre of music. It's like anything else, including country.
And from the way you said it promotes violence and suicide, it makes me think that you've got it mixed up with something else. You obviously know little about it.

By the way, did you know that country music has more suicide in it's songs than any other genre, at least in the US? Funny that I don't hear you complain about that.

I hear a death metal band is going to be playing at Septemberfest this year. How do I hear that? Because I know the committee and they're going to let it happen. And it's my band.

Funny that.

I came to kick the ass of all bluegrass, country, and gospel musicians that wish to challenge me.

Yeah, let's ban something because it does not fit with your definition of music, while we're at it let's ban everything else that doesn't fit in your world.

Are you amused now? It ain't happening.

Country music is more about people being killed or killing people and then feeling manly/sorry about themselves for it. I don't care for heavy metal, it is a matter of taste, not many peple like Sigur Ros either, doesn't mean they don't kick ass.

You people have country music confused for something else. It may have had an edge many years ago but todays country is wimpy. I wish it would go back to what it was but it is pure fluff now.

Who are you and what's your band called?
I'd love to see the reaction on rednecks faces when they hear the double bass kickers and screaming hahahaha

Circling Wolves. Just got it together, in fact. Played a demo for a member of the committee over the phone, and they thought it was interesting enough to be at the next Septemberfest.



Not us, obviously, but the guitar tone, the bass, and the drums are similar to what we're doing. We do slower and heaver as well as faster and as heavy. As for the vocals, good ol' demon roars are "the standard" for death metal, so they will be there, too.

Entombed is a good example. Just speed parts up and slow other parts down. Gives you the idea.

I expect rednecks to enjoy it, to be honest. It'll be the church people and gospel/country/bluegrass MUSICIANS that will have a problem with it. I half expect a newspaper article following the show, too.

Something like: "Bizarre Noise Band Takes Over Septemberfest"

Not recognizing that death metal was started in 1985 and goes back quite a long time... ;D

Thirty years ago this may have been news but no one cares about Metal today. Metal has been around since the 70's so most of those 60 have heard it and are not shocked by it. Most of the young people today think that it is boring and lame and prefer hip hop. Metal is going the way of Jazz and Bluegrass- extinct!

Dude metal is my favorite and i play lead on the guitar. Everyone in my family plays some type of music from bluegrass to metal and every reunion we play together and will mix all genres toether its awesome but bro Ive played metal lead for 14yrs now and i know that it takes alot more talent to shred on a banjo then it does tapping lead on the ax.

Metal is for those who are not accomplished musicians. You play it loud to cover up your lack of ability. Once yu learn to play then you branch out into other genres.

Metallica's Death Magnetic, released in 2008, sold over 600,000 copies in the US alone in four days.

Megadeth's Endgame, released in 2009, sold 45,000 copies in its first week.(Their highest in 1994 sold 140,000 first week, not too bad of a decline.)

Slayer's World Painted Blood, released in 2009, sold 41,000 copies in its first week.(Their highest was in 1994 and was 98,000 first week.)

Lamb of God's Wrath sold 68,000 copies in its first week, during 2009.

Mastodon's Crack the Skye sold 41,000 copies in its first week.

Dethklok's second album sold 41,000 copies in its first week.

Don't fucking tell me there isn't a market for metal. It will still be selling in numbers like this 20 years from now, when Kanye West and Lil Wayne are nowhere to be found in the media.

On the other hand, the banjo sounds like shit, whereas even the most simple tapping solo wipes out anything ever heard from a banjo.

I'm also guessing you haven't seen Michael Angelo Batio or Yngwie Malmsteen. No banjo player could ever get close to these guys in sheer technical ability and sound.

Megadeth's first lead guitarists and first drummers (from 1983 to 1987) were ALL jazz musicians. All of them had went to school for jazz guitar and drums, and all of them incorporated jazz influences into the blistering metal.

Try telling those 4-5 jazz musicians that went through Megadeth over a four year period that they're not "accomplished musicians". Seriously. Did you even think before writing that?

Megadeth's 1987 to 1989 line-up was comprised of a classically trained guitarist and a jazz drummer.

Megadeth's 1990 to 1997 line-up was comprised of a classically trained guitarist and a jazz drummer who was trained by some of the best jazz performers on Earth, and came from a strong jazz background

Megadeth's current guitarist, from 2008 to present, is a badass guitarist trained in everything from jazz to classical to country and beyond.

Don't let the distortion fool you, the organization of the chords and power of the solos happens to be a work of art.

Here's Megadeth's Lucretia, one of the heaviest thrash metal songs ever, being played on a couple of acoustic guitars by a couple of drunk guys:


Notice how it's not just a couple of idiots banging on guitars? Notice how it sounds fucking incredible? Notice how it's classically influenced? Are you noting these things?

Good. You lose.

Thanks for proving my point. Even one of Metal's biggest bands had to get accomplished Jazz musicians. Metal is redneck music like hillbilly or Country and Western use to be to blues and Jazz.

They weren't accomplished before they were in Megadeth.

Aside from that, Megadeth's Dave Mustaine (the primary songwriter for Metallica until 1983) wrote all the material on every Megadeth album. On stage, he outperformed the jazz and classical guitarists. They were damned good in the studio, but he out-shredded them every night.

The only thing the jazz musicians added were some jazzy solos and the occasional mild tempo change.

None of this, by the way, takes away from the fact that metal is highly technical music.

Redneck music is Disturbed, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Stone Sour, etc.
Hmm

Old slipknot is good, I hate the new stuff
