>Anime about idols
Fuck this shit!! I want moreanimes about METAL bands!!!!
I just wish someone would scan the rest of the manga.
RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE! RAPE!
Don't forget the 2nd verse, and grand finale to the series:
> FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!
Why can't we just have metal-themed idols? Cute tatooed girls drinking beer, eating bats and burn churches, Mandatory vomiting scene in the end of the each episode,
>metal vikings doing metal things in the far north
>cute vikings doing viking things
Cute viking girls conquering lands, burning women, raping villages. And at the end of the day they all get together inside a bar to get smashed, while hugging their loli viking friends and listening to metal music.
that'd be so fucking beast
So, Plastic Nee-san idols?
You could say, it could be fucking metal.
>cute girls playing metal
>There will never be a Babymetal anime
RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE-
It'd be shitty death metal or something.
Holy shit 11 times in second could you be the real Krauser-san?
I would actually watch a whole season of that.
Preview of the upcoming season. Hang onto your rape and rape accessories.
Sensei spin off when?
Metal is pretty bad. It's on the same scale as rap.
Please go, guys.
Further proof that you are the plebiest motherfucker alive and you should properly kill yourself this time.
where they're trying to make an heavy metal band.
>metal is pretty bad
that's a rather broad and retarded statement
I like cute girls singing cute songs. I don't like faggots who scream into the mic about mean things.
It's a pretty obvious statement.
Metal (and rap) comes in numerous varieties you blithering idiot. There are shit tons of instrumental stuff too.
>having the musical taste of a depressed 14 year old
as expected of a tripfag
Saying "metal is bad" or "rap is bad" is the same thing as saying "anime is bad" when you've only watched 2 generic harem shows.
>metal and rap
Why do you have shit taste?
>I don't like faggots who scream into the mic about mean things.
That's not all metal, bro.
One of the biggest driving factors why those musical tastes are held by people with bad tastes is because it has lyrics, but the lyrics are either hard to understand or pants on the head retarded. Unlike the glorious JPop I like or my english songs.
It's most metal that isn't Drone.
>ut the lyrics are either hard to understand or pants on the head retarded
Metal is not music.
>It's most metal that isn't Drone.
Yeah, you're a moron.
There's a massive amount of metal about just having a great time.
Reminder that there will never be an anime about Jojo.
/mu/ is here, abandon thread.
Yeah, that's what I thought. His gaping wounds are pretty emo.
It's nothing compared to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeU5YB4vQ1I
Seriously, the lyrics man.
This is my fate! I’m telling you!
I can’t leave things the way they are!
If I were to give a reason,
It’s because I’m a hero, an ally of justice!
All you fags just wanna be dark and edgy or live a life of crime.
>not pants on head retarded lyrics
Now how much of that metal is also good music?
> I don't like faggots who scream into the mic about mean things.
>who scream into the mic
Because there's only death/thrash/metalcore bands, right?
>I like cute girls singing cute songs.
Do you like this song, then?
It's about Kyouko and Sayaka's love
>Have no idea about a genre
>Type "Best of -insert genre-" on youtube
>Whine about it on /a/
Yep, you really are clinically retarded.
Mariko, Etsuko and Shiina sure are shit at writing.
I mean, I guess this thread was always going to end up like this, but I would've liked to talk about a hypothetical cute-girls-doing-metal-things anime instead.
C-can we still do that, guys? Please?
okay now you're just being a shitter, i aint even mad
time to follow this guy>>100612969
>C-can we still do that, guys?
No, because metal sucks.
I'd prefer talking about a show about cute girls playing noise.
There's many different types of metal.
About the same percentage as any other genre.
I want a loli Bruce Dickinson flying the band everywhere.
I posted myself a link of what metal is. Is that link wrong?
As for that character song. I like to think that doesn't exist and Karen's character song/OP is a better fit for Sayaka.
What did you expect? Do you want me to dive deep into the same whiny lyrics? No thanks. Your taste is shit and the lyrics are super shit.
I'll even post a song that I like for you.
It's not even weaboo-y.
Every time there is a music related thread on /a/, I cringe at how shitty most of the posters tastes are and how uneducated they are about music. Just don't talk about music on /a/ please.
>About the same percentage as any other genre.
But that's wrong.
Go ahead and try listing me 5 metal albums that are good and not 3edgy5u garbage.
>tfw no cute girls playing lolicore anime
I demand more Eurobeat.
Heavy Metal and Country is fine too.
What a normalfag thing to say
>I posted myself a link of what metal is. Is that link wrong?
There are many different genres of metal, you moron.
Nu-Metal is completely different from NWOBHM
Death Metal is different from Power Metal
Oh look, your example falls short because of the lyrics.
>And all the wounds are reopening again
>Out in the streets where the babies are burned
>Say a prayer on the book of the dead
Dude, if I wrote a poem about this shit you'd call me an edgy faggot. They're not acting like retards, but their lyrics are terrible and depressing and I hate it.
Why does this garbage exist?
I hope we'll get more Nana in Golden Time.
When the fuck will the rest of DMC be animated already
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/1ScR0HiQ5Zg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Listen and learn
Well, how about this one, mate?
What about Bluegrass? I like Bluegrass.
And they all have similar lyrics. All metal is depressing. There are no happy songs.
>5 metal albums
Fuck, I can find that in a single band.
Brave New World - Iron Maiden
Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
Piece of Mind - Iron Maiden
Powerslave - Iron Maide
Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
Don't be retarded. You sound like a 60 year old nun.
Do this about rap too. Prove why rap is shit.
>I like cute girls singing cute songs
>Metal is pretty bad. It's on the same scale as rap.
Allright, here you go
Intronaut - Habitual Levitations
East of the Wall - Redaction Artifacts
Mouth of the Architect - Dawning
Deafheaven - Sunbather
The Ocean - Heliocentric
These are just 5 good albums recently released. There are tons and tons more if you look deeper, which applies to every genre.
>There are no happy songs.
But that's completely wrong.
Power Metal exists.
>and not 3edgy5u garbage
Iron Maiden is pretty edgy and the proper notation is Artist - Album.
Please don't respond to the tripfag.
>Posting a reddit meme.
>Posting a link instead of a picture.
Dude, come on. The lyrics are edgy as fuck.
>There are no happy songs.
>Iron Maiden is pretty edgy
This is hilarious.
>Artist - Album.
Don't be autistic.
>there will never be an anime about iron maiden in the 80's wearing spandex and cruising around the globe
>produced by kyoani
also i'm suprised nobody mentioned Beck and Bremen.
How the fuck is this depressing, for example:
This guy knows what's up.
I didn't knew so many metal faggots are here. This is worse than /mu/.
Well, since this thread is doomed anyway, let me ask a question before it gets deleted.
If the only metal album I've ever thoroughly enjoyed is Images and Words, what are some other albums in the genre I might enjoy?
Merzbow anime never ;_;
I'd also be fine with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Emergency Staircase or a show about the ugly maggot slut.
>No Samurai Champloo type thing but with a Jungle OST produced by Bizzy B.
I'm not happy guys.
>Repeatedly defiling the wind's daughter
Is this guy jerking off to the wind? Is he in a red like district? What the fuck is happening?
Srsly, let's talk a look at more Jap shit.
“You know, I just want it
to be just the two of us…”
“My love is genuine”
I was finally able to say it! aah!
Since the very beginning, these feelings
were only aimed at you.
I wonder where this true love will lead me?
“Hey…” as our eyes meet,
I’ll talk, without being scared,
about what’s in my heart.
>mfw /a/ can't tell the difference between rap and hip hop
Prog metal in general. Just see the related artists on spotify or metal archives.
>no anime about Yeezy zoning at 3 in the morning
If you liked images and words, you'll like many other dream theater albums, like Awake or this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhQKol7PFzA&list=PLusUBt_GYHwFxJRDB6tUmmlbSJOFvg6Ap
If you like progressive metal in general, you could try something like Symphony X. It's more power, though.
Anything by Avantasia or Gamma Ray or Axel Rudi Pell or Stratovarius or any other generic Power Metal band.
I'd really love an Iron Maiden anime, just think about it, when they are not playing live or recording they are drinking beers and playing soccer.
Then there's Di'Anno being al tsun-tsun and a drunkard.
/a/ must have the shittiest music taste of all boards. Just weeb JPop shit.
You are trolling.
You can't honestly claim those lyrics are better that this.
>(Cracking open skulls like cans of beans on Christmas Eve)
Am I be trolled softly?
Here's a english song that I like that has happy lyrics.
So we gathered up the broken stars, lit a spark, put them back up in the sky. If you can wish on their falling, imagine what you can do bringing them back to life.
It's about being happy, friends!
I'm not gonna call metal bad, but it's just not my cup of tea. Too loud for me. I like jazz more.
Apollon was very enjoyable
So we all agree that metal is shit, can we talk about cute brown girls livin in Detroit and doing moe rap battles.
Metal isn't a single genre.
The 4edgy9u bullshit is mostly contained to death metal and its derivatives.
Power, symphonic, heavy, speed and even industrial are easily listenable and even wholesome, depending on the band. For every killmurder slipknot wannabe there are ten bands that are all about heroic fantasy and et al.
Why would I want to listen to generic music?
And he has a shitty Va who doesn't sound as good as Bruce-kun
People can say whatever they can about Iron Maiden, but their lyrics are serious shit, these guys are true scholars.
So you didn't like Sunn O))).
How about Earth, then?
I've met Moonsorrow. Cool bunch of dudes, saw them here in Melbourne.
>people caring about lyrics
There wouldnt never be an anime about varg vikernes kindly killing euronimus
I got you.
You want upbeat stuff.
How about a song about exploring the stars?
Skip to 1:15 if you don't like slow intros
This, if you don't enjoy it, it's not for you. Go listen to something else
The lyrics largely determine the way the voice is used as instrument.
>I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
>Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
>'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole,
>The sands of time for me are running low
Here's the deal. This shit is completely depressing. That's why I'm saying it's worse. Everything is depressing and/or loud and I can't take it.
dude's even say dokidoki.
Why would you keep recommending that faggot songs anon? It is obvious he is a huge, misinformed tool.
>You will never be able to sing like Bruce
because you're taste is shit
People who only listen to weeaboo shit disgust me.
This is hilariously bad, the vocals are worse than on SUN BAT HER, which is quite an achievement and the instrumentation sounds like shitty eurobeat synths.
Do you listen solely for the lyrics? If I don't understand the lyrics, I just appreciate the other instruments more.
I dare you to find something depressing in these lyrics
Are you stupid?
please kevin you're embarassing yourself
the lyrics alone don't make a song depressing. there can be an upbeat song about a sad thing.
It's like I'm back to middle school.
i cry evry tiem
On a serious note, he was such a bro. It's a shame that he died at such a young age, imagine what albums he would write if he was still alive.
As expected of a metal fan to call someone a tool for not liking their music! Why don't you go back to your basement, smoke some weed and listen to Tool?
This is good music. This song tells a story and makes me feel good. Metal can't do that.
This is worse than >>100614094
...but they're not cute at all, let alone alone the things they do.
>metal can't tell stories and make you feel good
you just perfectly described power metal and metal opera
>Power metal hate
What is this, 2006?
You might as well listen to noise if you adore your shitty meal so much.
It's basically metal taken to it's logical conclusion.
If you need 5edgy69u vocals look into Power Electronics, Whitehouse in particular are really edgy.
Yeah and now try doing that with good music.
I'm not calling you a tool because you dislike metal, I don't really like much of it either. I'm calling you a retard because you seem to have trouble getting it through your thick skull that not all metal is same and it is not entirely related with the idiotic stereotypes you seem to have. Also, I have trouble taking someone seriously when they judge the music solely on the lyrics.
>Implying I want to share my normalfag tastes with anyone here.
I'll only do it very lightly because I actually find my listening choices to be very personal as opposed to telling everyone that I listen to only anime music.
If only people knew.
At least these depressing music actually sounds good.
You're a fucking idiot. Stop posting about something you know absolutely nothing about.
As expected of Kevin! You have wonderful taste! Love you!
Do you have a last.fm?
they're pretty moe
Damn, Kevin's taste in music is actually pretty good. I can barely listen to anything English and I'm enjoying the stuff he's posting.
>can't out myself because everyone would assume I'm a huge loser.
>have now to hide my powerlevel and my music taste.
Blind Guardian is pleb tier though
Why are we trying to convince the troll?
I mean, some people just don't like metal.
I don't like it when people try to get me to like pop music.
Can't we just talk about Maiden or something?
There's something wrong with you then. If a song has lyrics, it's something to judge it buy.
I can enjoy a beat. I can enjoy a sound. However, if the lyrics are shit then I'll never like the song because I have to be subjected to something I don't want to hear.
Do I really want to hear about dead babies or hookers? Is that what I want in my songs?
No, it's not.
There's another awesome song.
Sorry, I don't. I only use Spotify.
On an unrelated note, check them blackaboos doing punk:
>Dee the lead guitarist and vocalist is into learning to read and write Japanese, watching anime and enjoys books by Stephen King, Michael Crichton and Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Toki a best Klok
Still waiting for that metal that is good music and not 3edgy5u garbage.
Cute Truckers doing cute trucker things in the rhythm of Country music.
What about an anime about a Japanese cover band doing Classic American Rock songs and eventually developing into their own classic rock style band.
Iron Maiden fucking sucks.
You're a pleb.
But dadrock sucks.
You CANNOT fault the fucking astounding levels of talent these guys have.
The lyrics are decent and it;s not "edgy"
Why is there still no anime about the King of Noise?
I didn't want to post in this thread anymore
You have the best taste in this thread, I wish everyone here would listen to this without skipping anything.
He's raping tokyo tower!
An anime about a Group Sounds-era band might be interesting.
>people arguing about music tastes
really guys? this thread is more depressing than any music
Technical skill does not make a piece good.
Srsly, I like this music. It's awesome. It sounds good. It doesn't make me depressed or brooding.
It's literally fun. I like fun music. Not depressing.
I like the Ocean, but Heliocentric has dawkins-tier edgy atheist lyrics, why not post fucking precambrian or even the new album.
Some good metal:
Wolves in the Throneroom - Diadem of Twelve Stars
Maudlin of the Well - Leaving Your Body Map
Gojira - The Way of All Flesh
Neurosis - Souls at Zero
Woe - Quietly, Undramatically
I would be metal as fuck
But it's a good piece.
I'm sure what you want out of the genre.
Maybe you just don't like it.
That doesn't invalidate the quality of the music.
Forgettable is an opinion and does not mean "3edgy5u" moron.
>this thread is more depressing than any music
Try listening to some Lifelover, bro.
No, it will never happen, just like Shin Great Mazinger and Nichijou s2
Give me a break, guy. You're depressing because you're not having fun.
This song is fun. It's about living.
Boring, it's just some guitarwankery.
>But it's a good piece.
What makes this cringeworthy stereotypical mess good?
Would you have liked it if I had used the word 'generic' instead?
The second requirement was quality.
Yeah, I agree it is one of their weakest albums but I was trying to post some recent stuff. I don't really care much about lyrics so it didn't bother me. You have great taste, by the way, motW is truly a godlike band. Toby Driver is a genius and the new Kayo Dot album is also hella sweet.
>What makes this cringeworthy stereotypical mess good?
You just threw out a couple words I want you to explain.
Maybe metal just isn't for you?
>Listening to tryhard edgy music
Just as bad as hip hop, nty.
>What makes this cringeworthy stereotypical mess good?
Care to address any other part of the post?
Yes, I don't like the majority of metal.
You really are just trying to insult the stuff that is posted, aren't you? I bet you didn't even listen to those for more than a minute. I mean, Intronaut is furthest you can find from generic metal.
Moonsorrow - Kivenkantaja
Gorguts - Colored Sands
Deafheaven - Sunbather
Negura Bunget - OM
Solstafir - Svartir Sandar
I mean, it's not hard. 5edgy7me garbage is prevalent in any genre, just as well thought out and balanced albums are.
It's kinda borderline, but Mr Bungle is stupidly fun and not at all edgy
>calling people plebs
>posting the plebiest band you can find
>Yes, I don't like the majority of metal.
Then why the hell are you asking for examples to judge?
That's like me judging a k-pop contests.
That's not AC/DC
>Intronaut is furthest you can find from generic metal
Compare >>100614997 and >>100614830.
The first example is ridiculously generic and I'm sure you have heard it, or something very, very similar to it a ton of times already.
Intronaut, except for their vocal performance sound very similarly.
based Blind Guardian
inb4 he quotes the something out of the lyric to show it's depressing
Good metal genres
Shit metal genres:
I just can't get into it, I know it's excellently composed, and the genres blend really well, but only a few tracks really grabbed me. Was the same thing with the new Rosetta album, so I suspect it has more to do with my tastes evolving away from metal.
This song is more fun than 99% of all metal.
Later nerds, shower time.
It's this thing where you wash your hair and your body in water with soap. I do realize this concept is a little foreign to metal heads.
My taste>your taste
>not appreciating everything music has to offer
Keyword in my post: 'majority'.
Good Metal Genres:
Only similarity between those is the guitar tone.
>have masters in music theory
I'm not sure, is a song about masturbating edgy?
Hair care is VERY important in metal
every genre that has "core" in it, is pure shit.
>This song is more fun than 99% of all metal.
Funny, you know which other track is much more fun than most metal?
>masters in music theory
>fun is the most important part of a song
You sound like Cal Chuchesta.
>That's not AC/DC
Hey, I like AC/DC.
They're one of the most fun bands around.
Before I leave, I must address this.
>Masters in Music Theory
How's the crippling debt from getting a mostly useless degree?
Voivod - Phobos
Coroner - Mental Vortex
Neurosis - Enemy of the Sun
Carcass - Heartworkk
Celtic Frost - Vanity/Nemesis
Thta's not edgy, it's is 3deep5u
Are you stupid or something?
>thread has potential
>tripfag ruins it
>emotive post-hardcore punk
Keep telling yourself that, mate.
I like AC/DC too.
But I don't pretend that it's genius or anything.
It's just a good time.
What the fuck do you even do with that degree? Become a music teacher in some middle school?
Since this thread is complete shit, I'm just gonna post an Ulcerate song.
>Metal is depressive.
What the fuck. Most of it's actually pretty upbeat and fun, especially when you play the songs on an instrument. Playing an Iron Maiden song on bass guitar is one of the most fun things you can do.
Kevin's music that he's posting is the whole reason I'm in this thread.
>tripfag ruins it
Actually /mu/tants ruined it.
Most metal is legitimately shit, though.
Holy fuck were they good live.
excellent track, was debating if I was gonna post that or Squeeze Me Macaroni
It's also the fault of everyone that replied to him.
Most MUSIC is legitimately shit.
Not that dude but I have a friend with a similar degree who just freelances and composes music for films, documentaries and games. It's not really a useless degree.
Enjoy being irrelevant.
Unfortunately I think DM-Shee has taught us that this is what you get when you cross anime girls with metal bands.
They would cease to be cute unless they were playing metal ironically... :/
>Not coming from a rich as fuck family.
How do you even live?
Metal is particularly offensive in that regard.
Im going to get so much shit for posting but here we go
inb4 2edgy4me replies
>Enemy of the Sun
mah nigga, gets overlooked far too often by kids jacking off to Times of Grace and Through Silver in Blood
Oh, that's actually pretty sweet, actually. Do you need to know people in the industry, though? I mean, I like art and music, but I didn't think you can do much with it, so I backed off from taking full courses.
This is now a comfy rock thread
If you don't have a heavy blues base, you're it wrong.
Reminder that punk is superior to metal in every way.
The debt from being a crippling faggot. Do you actually fart in a glass and sniff it or do you just take it straight from the asshole?
As I posted a song earlier in the thread.
Being rich would destroy my dreams.
What are u redirecting me to an outdoor activities board? lol :/
HOW CAN METAL BE REAL IF YOU ARE BURIED IN A ROOM?
leave already faggot
Reminder that TSOPTK is the last good Hardcore punk album
>If you don't have a heavy blues base, you're it wrong.
Most metal has deep roots in blues.
Led Zepplin were basically a blues band.
Now I can't! I have faggots to deal with.
>I'm upset because rather then me being the one in the thread with my head shoved up my ass looking down on everybody, this guy who is qualified to look down on peoples musical tastes is looking down on me now, so I'm just going to try to dismiss him because If I accept my ignorance it may hurt my ego.
You are truly pathetic.
I don't know man, look at this bad
It's really a shame that they disbanded after releasing such a solid album.
the entire reason I love metal is because its fun.
mythology/historical themed lyrics are always fun to listen to.
>inb4 do that with good music though
fun as fuck metal with historical themed lyrics.
>high theoretical knowledge
Gotta be comfy too.
Comfy as fuck
cool non anime thread about /a/'s shit music taste
I remembered listening to melodic death metal back in high school. Arch Enemy, In Flames, Insomnium, all that stuff.
Then /a/ kicked in and all I listen to nowadays are cutesy girly J-pop. Has my tastes gotten worse, /a/?
What's the best Dragonforce song?
These are where the money comes in.
Bad Punk usually has something more than the music to it.
Hey, that's not /mu/.
>Implying that a degree in anything outside of the medical field is worth jackshit.
Oh man, this is how liberal arts majors try and justify their existence.
Seriously, how much are you worth in society? Not how much money some retard is willing to pay you, but how much you can actually contribute to society?
Nothing, you say?
That's what I thought.
AC/DC is shit, but that song is pretty comfy\
Something off the first album or something of the most recent album.
Dragonforce isn't actually THAT bad.
They're just an average PM band that attracted a fuck ton of haters.
It doesn't matter because they all suck.
>Has my tastes gotten worse, /a/?
Do you like Wakusei Abnormal and Tokyo Jihen?
I have no degree.
Instead I took a CNC class.
I now make 60k.
you are in a word gay
>liberal arts majors
To be fair, law is a liberal arts degree.
I don't really know but I bet you have to have connections and renown to be successful. But it's similar in pretty much every field, so why not just take the risk and do something you enjoy instead of going for a guaranteed route but having similar risks?
Nowadays, I listen to both, actually. It's pretty amusing to listen to the K-ons getting ready to play their next song and have the next song in my playlist be something really heavy.
Any bros here?
>Not using pleb-tier but enjoyable Amon Amarth
Where are those gifs even from?
ITT: Further proof that actual old-definitions weeaboos are the cancer killing /a/
A degree doesn't make you any better than the layman. It just means you were willing to shell out money to get a stupid piece of paper that in the long run really means nothing. A person without a degree and with the right personality could go just as far if not further.
A degree does not show your worth, it just fools people into thinking you know something.
So is Criminal Justice and despite taking it, I still think it's kind of worthless. First hand experience has taught me what I needed to know.
Without a degree, I can easily go up to over 150k a year if I continue at my current pace. A degree is nothing if you have a dream.
>I'm just going to try to dismiss him because If I accept my ignorance it may hurt my ego.
You cant stop can you? I'm not a Liberal Arts Major so your entire argument just falls apart since its based off of Ad Hom argumentation.
You are truly pathetic.
Damn, you sure are a complete moron. Who do you think composes the music in your chinese cartoons, movies and games? Does that not count as a contribution to the society? And how are you contributing right now, shitposting on 4chan?
>implying anyone on /a/ contributes to society or cares about contributing
>attempting to make an argument with that statement
Tripfug pls lev
it's not like my japanese idol cartoons at all!
Arch Enemy went to shit when Amott fired Liiva because some slut gave Amott a blowjob and got a lead position in the band.
Why are you morons even replying to him? He's a tripfag and is using /v/ memes like sanic and posting monogatari.
It's so blatantly obviously.
If I wanted pleb tier but enjoyable I would have posted some Ensiferum
Amon Amarth isn't Viking, they only have Viking-related lyrics, their style is more melo death than anything.
So exist heavymetal idol group?
>any band that writes their name in twirly gothic style font
/a/ has such shit taste in metal.
>Amon Amarth isn't Viking, they only have Viking-related lyrics, their style is more melo death than anything.
But they sing like vikings.
And look like vikings.
There's Dollsbox and Babymetal.
Do you honestly think all these people have degrees in music? No, probably not. They can produce good music.
I'll be contributing to society in a couple of hours. Shitposting isn't my day job.
He really is one of the worst tripfags I've seen. And I also frequent the trip infested shithole that is /o/, which should prove how much of a faggot he is.
Sure are shit, amirite?
Please tell me why Iron Maiden is bad.
It's like you've never seen Ame, CLT or Hampus during their prime.
Iron Maiden is good.
Just because it wasn't produced with a fucking tape recorder and isn't about kvlt noise doesn't equal bad.
They're not bad, but they're not great either. There are much much better artists out there and a lot of them.
nigga you had taste back then
this so goddamn hard
Oh? What's a music degree than?
Hate to break it to you, but unless you degree is a Science, you're fucking in the arts.
Iron Maiden is neither of the 2.
They're bland and average, at least as far as meal artists go.
Dethklok crossover episode when?
How is Law art?
That would be amazing
They have degrees in similar fields, sound engineering, communication and design etc. Rest of the post surprise-boxed for blog:
I used to think similarly; anyone who does not have a STEM degree is just a leech in the society. However, I took a sound design course last semester and it completely changed my view. The people there were really passionate about the stuff they made and they really produced wonderful material.
Dethklok has turned into a musical.
>trying this hard
The art of bullshitting
And it was great.
I'm not the same guy you were talking to before who had a degree in music. So far all of your replies have been Ad Hom based on me having a Music Degree.
Now would be the time to switch gears in your argument but that would be me expecting some amount of consideration or Intelligence from a Tripfag.
Nigga, I'm even considering him as an equal of Phosgene in terms of shitposting.
And it was the best thing ever.
Come back when he made somethings like Hampy's Autism pyramid or Ame's "guide" to Art and Pop music.
yeeeh bro we should all study STEM and circlejerk about atheism together
But how does he live up to Jack?
This is terrible and it feels like I've heard it so many times already, even if I only just found out about this bad.
Sometimes you just need to flip out to cheesy shit like this.
Technically it's an art, but you're called a Master of Laws or something else. However, music is an art and law is kind of unrelated to this conversation.
A STEM degree is kind of useless too. I honestly believe that most degrees outside of certain sciences and the medical field is worthless. Experience teaches you more than a classroom will. There are people just as passionate if not more passionate because they try to attain the same level as the people who were lucky enough to go to school. Not every person who graduates does something great. A lot of them just move to a liberal city, become a barista at Starbucks and smoke weed all day.
You misjudge me, faggot.
Didn't the director or somebody say last year that it and Mushishi were both getting something new? Mushishi's thing already got announced, so hopefully we get something for DMC too.
It's not scanned? Seriously? I would, but I don't want to ruin my books.
Hey, you could be. I wouldn't know. You're Anonymous.
Hell, you could even be me.
Please tell me their servers are not actually called baristas.
They have some rather grand songs.
I just love anything suitably large in scope or things that would work well in a soundtrack.
I like stuff like
>ruin my books
Just buy again you cheap faggot. You need to make sacrifices for the greater good.
That's what they are...
Holy fuck, this thread. The only board with worse taste in music is /v/.
Ignore third link, fourth link is for the same song but in higher quality. I just ballsed up and forgot to delete the other link
Now your trying to change the subject so that people don't focus on the fact that you know jack shit about music and people are mocking you for that.
Why can't Japan make proper metal? They're always relying on European bands.
I don't have $100 to spare at the moment, sorry anon.
>A STEM degree is kind of useless too
>Experience teaches you more than a classroom will.
Call me when experience teaches someone (non-genius) stuff like photonics, advanced signal processing, robust control theory and biomedical instrumentation.
Japan's not too good on original things period. Even most of their old cultural things are borrowed from China.
There was a /b/ thread last night I got linked too. Filled with awful dubstep, mediocre dadrock, mediocre buttrock, and generic pop.
In all fairness, even though her music is awful, I do have a deep desire for Nicki Minaj big black tits.
You damned plebian, you are our only hope! Embrace your destiny!
I'm curious why this is not deleted yet. It surely is not related to anime or manga.
In term of music, Japan really can't compare to... anywhere else really. They spent all their talent on drawing.
I mean they have a handful of good shoegaze artists and some drone artists but other than that they got nothing.
No, really. I don't understand where you're even coming at. I still maintain my position that a music degree doesn't mean you're some kind of God in music. A degree is not a direct measure of your worth.
They're not all useless and I said that. However, those jobs don't take in a lot of people do they? How many STEM degrees are out there? How many are being utilized. Unless you're exceptionally bright or you know someone, you're better going for a technical degree.
I'm guessing just from the title Holy Thunderforce" that it's one of those shitty World of Warcraft metal bands that talk about dragons and orcs and shit. Yeah, nah.
Same shit. /v/ and /b/ are pretty much the same thing. At least they have the same userbase.
No clue. After hearing that Death Penis' opening guitar was eerily similar to a song by Bullet for my Valentine, even that was ruined for me. I wonder if they copied/"referenced" other songs in the DMC OST, but since I don't listen to much rock or metal, I have no idea.
Don't forget, shit tones of noise-rock.
>I do have a deep desire for Nicki Minaj big black tits.
No argument here, Anon.
Even their drawing isn't particularly great.
Wanting to fuck her doesn't mean you need to pretend you like her music.
How many volumes haven't been scanned?
>but other than that they got nothing.
In reality it is. Stop being 14.
>tryhard otacool faggot
Who said anything about pretending to like her music?
>good shoegaze artists
They're among the best, but nothing gets as good as Loveless.
>other than that they got nothing
Let's just ignore how Japanese noise artists are still the unmatched peak of noise art, Japanese Folk, Tomokawa Kazuki in particular and the majority of their classical music, which while not as good as the western canon, is still very good.
What you have done is taken the state of the argument "Some one who knows much more about music then me is calling me out on my childish pleb taste and the fact that I know nothing about music" and then trying to get people to instead debate on wither a Music degree is useful or not so they don't focus on the original point which is that you are a Child with pleb taste who knows nothing about music.
I don't think I'm the 14 year old here. You still seem to brainwashed into thinking that a degree actually does mean shit when it's outside of a field that damn well needs years and years of study.
Reality is not a classroom and you're gonna learn that fact one day. No amount of class work is going to prepare me for watching a guy get stabbed to death in front of me.
It's sort of sad how one verse she rapped on someone else's album is the highlight of her entire career.
At her voice is somewhat bearable. Kim's voice made me want to commit majong, even at her supposed peak.
>In term of music, Japan really can't compare to... anywhere else really
And she doesn't even exist.
thanks for the life lessons tripfag on the anime board im laerning so much with each new post
You know that literally everybody in Young Money has a shitty voice and autotunes to hell and back, right?
This is Dubstep:
This is not Dubstep:
Don't make me filter you you cockgargling niggerkicker. Show some respect for genres.
I get what you are trying to say but the percentage of people who honestly are good at what they do without any kind of degrees are so low that I don't really take anyone who does not have at least a college degree seriously. Even then, most of the times, you need MSc or PHD to have an adequate understanding of a field.
Her music might not be anything as far as groundbreaking music goes, but as music made for entertainment purposes, it's pretty decent, imo. Plus I swear to god she doesn't even take herself seriously in the first place, if you listen to her music, you can pretty much tell that much. Yes, her songs are catchy, and when she does sing, she's pretty damn good at it, but for the most part, it's obvious that she's just having fun with it. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Music exists for lots of different reasons. That's just my opinion though.
I don't think you've heard her verse on Monster.
Having a degree gives you the chance to be initiated into the more rewarding part of the entertainment industry. Let me ask you this. Have you ever seen a composer's house before?
>outside of a field that damn well needs years and years of study
You don't have the right to say that, because you haven't studied it for years and years
And basically you're stating that I can't possibly have any taste in music because I didn't spend 6 years in school.
That's exactly what you're saying.
How arrogant is that? Music is not open-heart surgery nor is it building the LHC.
I'm sure ALL the famous artists throughout times had a college degree in music because that's the only way they'd be able to understand that.
Seems like the latest one was v.19 c.84.
Yes, that's what I was referring to when I said "awful dubstep"
Try and keep up, Anon.
Why would anyone show respect to something as shit as your childish power meal/edgy meal?
Hell yes! I want to see cute pop idols turned into a metal band by a group of managers with A VISION and a secret stash of illicit substances. AND SEE THEM SUFFER IN THE PROCESS!
I bet you hated Rival Dealer too.
So, Babymetal ~The Animation~?
But, that's not what he's saying. Why are you so wrong?
Huh. She sounds like she has a bit of an accent there.
Also why the fuck does /mu/ still jack Kanye off when he's literally like every other mainstream rap artist? Does Kanye bump his own threads or something?
v.19 as in Volume 19? Are you still talking about DMC? Because there's only 10 books of that.
Are you dense, Anon. When I'm refer to "bad dubstep" I am in fact referring to "skrillex" and other brostep artists.
I'm on your side.
That wouldn't be moe. They need to preserve their cuteness, and drink tea and eat cakes while composing songs about burning churches, fucking corpses and raping women.
That's why I said it.
Honestly fuck the idol shit, rock band anime is what we should be getting! Songs filled with some fucking rage and emotion by people that want to be stuck in an underground basement with 50 screaming people!
Why do you need happy songs? That's outrageously boring. You can listen to sad/harsh lyrics without being a emo teenager you know. Or you can do what I do and listen to mostly instrumental music of various tones and genres
>implying they wouldn't be forced into drinking hard liquor
Because old-definition weebs constantly need a constant stream of painful j-rock.
Shoegaze > Metal
Varg pls go.
>he's literally like every other mainstream rap artist
Except he isn't after 808s.
This is Emo:
This is not Emo:
What about upbeat songs about sad stuff?
You have no way to back up your statement. You realize that, right?
Let me use myself as an example (even though I shouldn't).
Which do you think would be better for me?
Spending 4 years in college learning about Criminal Justice or spending 4 years in various jobs that give me the tools to handle situations that I might find myself in when I become a law enforcement officer?
Once. It was littered with instruments, sheets of music, and instruments.
As for my second statement. I was referring to people in the medical field or science field that take years and years to study because they need to. They can't just walk in and perform the work.
Yes, yes it is.
Because of escapism. Why is the majority of my stuff I watch in Japan all romance or other such topics?
It would be terrible. Japan can't into making metal metal.
They can into listening to it, but there are literally only 2 metal bands in Japan worth listening too. 3 if you don't mind lyrics translated using google.
Its not that you don't have a degree that shows your pleb taste and zero knowledge of music, your statements thus far have shown it perfectly.
"Music should be fun and happy! I only like Music that is fun and happy! Having a deeper meaning is stupid. Trying to have different tones other then "PARTY PARTY PARTY" and "LIFE IS SO MUCH FUN" or "FRIENDSHIP YAY!" is stupid. Trying to explore different styles and ways of making music and inventing new genres is stupid. I only listen to fun happy music!"
This is the mindset of a Child. This is the mindset that Children have before they mature and acquire a more mature taste in music. Watching you comment here is like watching a five year old try to argue that Old McDonald had a farm, is superior to Moonlight sonata because its more "Fun" and "Less Boringer".
And both are angsty as shit. I'm completely fine with a bit of emotion in music, I just can't stand that fucking angst and screechy voice.
Actually there are a lof of good instrumental metal bands, the only problem is that they are only doing touhou covers and are lacking vocalists.
Not being sarcastic here.
That's pretty nice man, fucking love people who can play/compose.
Ziltoid The Omniscient - Devin Townsend
The Mechanical Hand - Horse the Band
A View from the End of the World - Machinae Supremacy
Imaginaerum - Nightwish
Stench - Nekrogoblikon
I meant how fucking huge a professional composer's house is.
How much do you actually know about music?
Considering that you are a huge faggot and spend your time shitposting on /a/, I'd say it would be better if you stayed in college.
The fact that there's an /a/ tripfag browsing /a/ who is also supposed to enforce law scares me.
Good god anon, you've really done it now.
>Implying learning to play in a decent and soulfull manner doesn't require years of devotion.
>Implying learning about music theory doesn't enlarge your musical vocabulary and compositional options.
Yet another thread ruined by kevin
Are we talking pre or post Tarja?
>And they all have similar lyrics. All metal is depressing. There are no happy songs.
Because Unexpect is exactly like Nueraxis, who are exactly like Dying Fetus, who are exactly like Deathspell Omega who are exactly like Dragonforce who are exactly like Amon Amarth.
Are you even trying?
At this point I don't really care, we're containing him here mostly.
>Not filtering him
You deserve it.
Fucking kill yourself.
Please don't post that cat.;_;
I hate that they turned him into a "2pure innocent" retard. Season 1 Toki was the greatest Toki.
Alright. So K-On in the same setting as Detroit Metal City. They get inspired to change their light music club to a metal one after accidentally attending one of his shows and spend the series trying to emulate him, never realizing he himself is a massive poser.
In their dedication to becoming like him, they become the real article more or less, but when they meet him on a stage in the series' climax, his general tendency to bungle into looking like a massive badass humbles them.
Would you watch it?
Dear god i wasnt prepared for Gene Simmons in the live action.
GO TO DMC
GO TO DMC
>both are angsty as shit
Important Things is about a guy crying that a girl won't be his girlfriend, a common theme throughout Emo.
It's either that or breaking up and being sad about it.
I should clarify that happy songs are fine, but good God put a variety in your life, listen to more than one type of song, experiment.
Best toki in best scene.
>How to Train Your Dragon
If Kevin was a person who browsed /lit/ he would trash talk all classic Russian literature because of its Cynical and often Depressive or Melancholic tone and then try to push that his five dollar romance novels are of much higher quality because it makes him feel happy.
Hamburger Time was such a great episode.
I don't really care pre or post Tarja, I like both her and Anette (is that her name?) although Tarja was hard to understand sometimes, I will admit, that's about it, so I don't really care about that, I just know they tend to ignite shitstorms since they're seen as babby's first metal liked by tons of weebs.
I'd watch HTT making noise after attending a Merzbow show.
Masami-sensei applies for a job at their school to become their club adviser and they have whacky adventures involving pornography, seppuku and chicken.
>Shits on the band the /mu/ loves as "emo" whilst praising a band /mu/ fucking hates as "not emo".
I am so fucking confused right now. Thank god I stuck to IDM and Trance.
the miniskirt space pirates op was kind of metal
Any retard could guess emo would be mostly about people overreacting to relationship issues. I naturally associate that crap with adolescence and teenagers going through their iffy years, with all the angst that accompanies it.
Best Toki of all time.
I just got my info from manga-update but I see not it's utter Scheisse. seems the real latest chapter is chap. 90.5: Omake - Dodge don't know from which volume thou.
Now you're getting into a totally different territory. My opinion was that if a song had lyrics, I liked the lyrics to be more happy. I want something I can relate to. I don't want to listen to a song where I can't relate to the music. If they're talking about crushing the skulls of children or if they're talking about shooting cops then I can't relate to these things. These are things that I don't want to relate to.
Instrumental is a whole different topic than what we're talking about here which was originally metal (a mostly darker genre of music) vs the music that I like that's usually a lot happier sounding or something I could relate with.
I'm sorry that this conversation went in such a disconnected route. I have to say that I'm in the blame for making my own blanket statements and inciting reaction out of people.
For that, I'm sorry.
Not everyone becomes a professional composer who makes ton of money. You'd have to be smoking a pipe to believe that. People who do music for anime and video games are not all that rich. They're not raking in millions unless they're hitting triple A titles and have their own name.
Why? Then I would have no job and I would be shitposting 24/7.
I don't act like this when I'm working. I'm much more professional. You wouldn't even know me. I care a lot about these things.
>Implying your own devotion has to be a college degree.
You can thank Marty Friedman for that.
Tarja had a great voice, but was also a notorious cunt. I think there's an open letter from the bandmates to her floating around somewhere.
Are you even trying? Seriously?
What's that supposed to mean?
I'm the guy who shits on both the songs. You shouldn't disregard an entire genre just because of it's reputation. I have yet to hear an emo song I like but I won't start talking shit about the genre, just specific songs people show me.
A song isn't shit just because it's emo. The same goes for any other genre.
If I got arrested one day and I cry out 'Kevin-kun Tasukete!', would you come to help me and watch anime with me while I'm getting detained?
>destist-kun died even after hamburger time song
Fuck you, Brendon.
Season 1 Toki was also innocent, but then he just got more pure/innocent/messed up because of his father's death. Toki still a best.
Momoiro Clover Z is also the secondbest Japanese Idoru group right now.
Those little shits didn't want to collaborate with Hijokaidan, so BiS is clearly superior.
Oh, I didn't know that. I've never really been one to really get involved in the fanbases of the bands I listen to. Hell, I don't even know the names of any of the members of my favorite bands Not that it matters, since most of them have long-since broken up anyways. ;_;, so that should tell you enough about that.
Depends on the crime, my friend.
Who Sonata Arctica here
Can we really comment about their own quality if they are doing covers?
Finntrolls are posers.
Here it is.
Fuck that, I just want Varg's Adventures.
I liked this one song by the sex machineguns I saw in an amv once
Yes, because they have to arrange the songs for various instruments and actually play those instruments as well.
>Implying your own devotion has to be a college degree.
Yes I am, because most people walking around with such a degree have/get taste and knowledge.
Most people who make music without such a degree don't revolutionize anything/make shitty and boring songs.
Seriously, fuck off with your shit taste and your shit attitude.
Instrumental is a whole different topic than what we're talking about here which was originally metal (a mostly darker genre of music) vs the music that I like that's usually a lot happier sounding or something I could relate with.
Why did Ken's Rage 2 have to suck so hard?
That's pretty good. I don't like overly "doom, gloom, my life is shit give me attention" songs but that's just a matter of taste so I won't start calling songs shit because of it.
What I really didn't like about that other song was how he was just screaming into the mic. It was as though people decided to praise solely for his emotion, not the quality of the actual song.
Eh its a decent enough game, it was fun to play and it was true to the manga.
It was obviously aimed at the fans of the series, not the general audience.
There are actually people who listen to metal. Oh, /a/ there isn't day without proving how normal it's here.
I was just saying compared to the first, they downgraded so many things.
Keep thinking you're a special little snowflake.
Sorry, but 4chan stopped being the edgy outcast society when Faux News caught wind of it.
DId you really miss the point that hard?
Obviously there are metal bands that encompise the full stereotype, but explain to me how this:
Is equivalent to this:
I mean, there is being ignorant, and then there is being you.
>It was as though people decided to praise solely for his emotion, not the quality of the actual song
That's pretty damn important, even if every song on Fuck Your Emotional Bullshit is really rather well written.

Aw, that's sad, both the letter itself and her attitude. I hate when bands go through that shit. Thanks for linking it to me though.
/a/ has always listen to Metal, i hope you're enjoying your first week here, newfriend.
The combatsystem was revamped like a motherfucker and it felt alot better.
They had CGI movies which looked great.
The voiceacting was supreme.
The choice to show most of the story through manga was interesting.
The only problem was a low budget which was apparent in cutscenes, and the shitty Dynasty Warriors engine.
And the new leveling system is better.
No longer do i have to pick 3 skills to level Health/Attack/Defence and lose out on valuable skills that would help me in combat.
>Listening to Eterul is a normalfag thing to do
I'll tell you:
They're all shit.
There are more people into anime than into metal.
>"The ultimate example being the already sold-out show in Oslo, which you wanted to cancel because you needed to rehearse for your solo concerts, meet frieds and go to the movies."
That shit is amazing.
I'm but are you?
Sure, old friend.
I've listened to American Football before, but as I've said before I'm just not into overly sad music. I'm not going to start talking shit about emo music in general, I'm just not a sad person / a sensitive person / a caring person and I have no interest in their problems.
>Patron Saint of Bridge Burners - Sorry.
>I don't sleep, cause when I do, all I dream are dreams of you. When I wake up, you are not around. In my best dreams I am dying. In my worst, you say you're trying

Make it a point never to listen to Hospice, then.
>there are more people into anime than into metal
Are you legitimately retarded or something?
Hospice is insincere garbage and you know that.
tumblr, please, leave.
And my question didn't relate to quality.
I could have posted Portal (the entire reason they were enjoyable was because of how bad they are) and it still wouldn't have any impact.
How are they equivalent in compositional style, lyrical content, etc.
The first song is about a guy who fails to make a contract with the devil because the devil present him with his wish (ultimate knowledge) in the form of a hamburger that he can't eat because he's a vegetarian, for fucks sake.
How is that like murdering cops and raping babies?
>fuckin Dimmu Borgir
we ultra hipster now
My point is that they're all shit and if you want some real baby rape music listen to Buyers Market and any Lost Prophets album.
Metal is for old people
We dubstep nao
Hospice isn't really a good album and the emotions expressed are just so stupidly specific, which makes them rather unrelateable, which lets them seem insincere.
I'll make this simple and clear because I need to go to bed.
Metal can sound different. However, metal deals with more depressing lyrics and does not have an uplifting sound like the music I enjoy.
>in b4 someone tells me I'm wrong and metal is '2deep4me' or whatever.
>it's now cool to hate hospice
What the fuck, /mu/?
An as explained, your point is irrelevant.
I sure love dubstep
Listen to some actual dubstep, mate.
It has very musical qualities.
Melodic and liquid dubstep is alright. Been listening to some Blackmill recently and their music is seriously great.
/mu/ was one of the many boards taken over by angry koreans.
This happened sometime spring 2013, mate.
Literally none of the songs posted there match what you claim they are/should be.
This is the most bland and generic garbage I've ever heard.
Please educate yourself and listen to the Kindred EP
Funny thing, that's probably the only emo shit I have. I keep it to scratch the very occasional itch to feel sorry for myself.
Before someone bitches about itunes and Apple, I use it with a 5 year old 16GB ipod nano. Apple are shit and I've been meaning to find a new program but it would need to work with the ipod and I'd still need to transfer my music over to it.
>metal deals with more depressing lyrics
You havent been listening to real metal, faggot.
Blink 182 isnt metal.
How long till the tater album is hated for being too popular? And why the fuck is every board /v/ now?
Hospice isn't emo.
It has no punk influences at all.
They must fucking love cocaine.
>those Beethoven tags
Can we please go back to talking about Nicki Minaj's glorious titties?
That sounds exactly like the sort of shit /mu/ hipsters listen to.
The only glorious thing about nicki minaj is how big the fire she will burn in.
No one has to say its 2deep4u, as while in many cases that would be the case you are absolutely retarded.
There is next to nothing about, for example, UneXpect's "Mechanical Phoenix" or "Feasting Fools" which sounds depressing, or even really has depressing content. Queer as fuck, but not depressing.
Why they look so retarded?
I'm lazy. If I wasn't I wouldn't use itunes.

>not liking dubstep
It feels like we are arguing semantics here. They are both dubstep, one is simply more mainstream.
>poor taste in tits
This is what Ron Paul has done to our youth. Libertarians are the juggalos of politics.
No, fuck you, Amored Saint it's more manly because the Kenshiro's suits.
There's lots of upbeat and positive metal you ass.
Admittedly, most of it is Power or classic Heavy Metal.
>They are both dubstep
Sure and one is bland and unimaginative garbage I've heard countless times and the other one isn't, even when compared to the Skream track, which is rather mainstream.
I don't see what's good about being manly and what's even manly about them.
Oh look, the edgy teenagers have arrived.
Listen to it louder and with proper speakers, headphones just don't do the trick here.
>I don't see what's good about being manly
Colour me surprised, weeaboo.

>no music for edgy teenagers

>not being cute trap
Your life must be miserable.
No, their music is just bad. I have to listen to them in the background so I don't focus on how bad it is, then I can enjoy it.
The only exception is Heart of Steel
Unappreciated NWOBHM is the best Metal.
>likes bands solely because of the fact they come from grorious nippon
No, I like them because all of those bands I listed make metal music that is top-tier.
Eh, they're okay.
My brother of African American decent.
Gonin-ish and Sigh are literally the only ones that don't suck.
Galneryus is good too
Edgy teenagers listen to Deathcore and Metalcore.

Because metal isn't even 1/100th as aggressive as dubstep. Metal is weak shit.
Yeah it's Skrillex, don't think about that if it bothers you. Give it a shot. It's truly powerful.
Why should i listen to Skrillex?
I already have a blender that works.
And it makes me smoothies.
>I don't remember Nile sounding all that fast.
This not fast enough for you?
>not our based dubstep god Koven http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt-kYT9Fijo
If I want aggression and loud abrasive sounds I'll just listen to some Hijokaidan or Merzbow, mate.
sounds like someone hasn't heard of berzerker:
I swear to god every Skrillex song sounds the exact fucking same.
The only quality dubstep artist is Burial and you should know that.
>implying I listen to metal for the aggression
Why do you kids think that brostep is good in any shape or form, especially if you listen to it for it's abrasiveness.
Just listen to noise instead of beating around the bush with shitty EDM beats.
I'm older than you kid. I'm sorry if you can't see that your favorite band is shit. Try listening to warriors of the world and pay attention to the drums. It's the same 2 seconds copy pasted for 6 full minutes
Sounds pretty standard imo.
Then again, this used to be my favorite metal song for a long time
dat 2:20 part man
All 5 of the past Between the Buried And Me albums have been fantastic. Colors itself was an album of the decade of to me
still seems weak when compared to most of harsh noise, grindcore and powerviolence.
>Colors itself was an album of the decade of to me
And this is how you spot someone with terrible taste.
That Nile song is at least around 130-150bpm which is fast by any sane definition of the word.
>I don't remember Nile sounding all that fast.
That's the point.
Nope. Doesn't punch. This is muddy, messy (I'm an audio engineer) like all metal. It has potential but dubstep artists are the only ones skillful enough to harness it. Is this not common knowledge? If you heard this shit on a sound system any more detailed than laptop speakers you'd understand.
>Between the Buried And Me
Im sorry that sounding good isnt hip enough.
Working with the bass, guitars and vocals to make a better sound is more important than randomly smashing buttons on the keyboard to imitate a broken blender where the only musical "talent" lies in pressing a spacebar.
I'm not a fan, the actual metal parts are just uninspired and then randomly some random melodic parts
he could have at least posted breakcore
Dubstep be good if done right. Techdiff, Ruby My Dear, and even Infected Mushroom's latest stuff can all stand as testament to that.
However the idiots in this thread comparing dubstep to metal are just that - idiots. As the two genres are completely different in what they try to achieve musically and sound-wise.
Because again, as an audio engineer, it's a serious feat. Skrillex and Knife Party in particular have risen to the level of fame they're at now because their production values are WAY off the charts. Literally ask anyone who knows what they're talking about- it's not just noise. It's objectively powerful, even if you don't think it's pretty.
All of you please take a look at >>100618209
Its called being the new hip thing.
No one wants to do what you do.
typical shit taste right here.
>it's not just noise
Noise music isn't just noise, despite it's name
What does it matter how good the sound quality is?
A good tune is still good in 92kbps coming from a pair of $7 headphones.
You mean that death metal doesnt kill its fans either?
This is a bit cleaner, but it would never go off in a club. I could never see the masses moshing to this. I personally enjoy it (I love metal) but it's not dubstep tier. Real, acoustic drums will never reach the power of optimized, processed drums. Distorted chunky guitars will never reach the pure aggression that synths like this can deliver with ease:
Define aggressive, most Dubstep is fairly boring.
>I'm an audio engineer
Oh, your baiting. Nevermind then.
breakcore is fine too, i like it as well.
>liking Between the Buried and Me
You don't know what the fuck you're talking about. I'm not talking about sound quality at all. I'm talking about expensive mastering houses, working with god tier mixes done on EXPENSIVE consoles designed to maximize dynamics yet still retain transients and POWER. Aggression is a science. Sound quality has nothing to do with it, you're right.
It's ok Kevin-kun. We love you. Sweet dreams.
I think when he means production values, he's talking about people that oversea the actual finished work. Getting the volume and everything so that one part isn't too overpowering and so that it all flows together is hard if you don't have the skill for it, which not many people do. For most people, composing and putting together music is ridiculously difficult. A lot of metal DOES sound muddled in comparison, not that that's a bad thing, but the sounds used in metal and dubstep really can't be compared to each other.
I like metal but I prefer blues...why did they have to cancel Me and the Devil Blues? These japs...
except that there is no need for expensive equipment, just look at Merzbow.
I got you, I know where you're at. You want music like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzNu6dT3org right?
You've posed me an interesting quandary, because I can't think of any metal music with a decidedly upbeat sound.
Perhaps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_irSTG6Yowc although the rest of the album isn't nearly so good.
There are also some Symphony X songs that are fairly upbeat on their earlier albums, although I'm not sure they fit your criteria.
>A lot of metal DOES sound muddled in comparison
Yeah but Metal is also the sort of music that is intended to be heard live.
>I'm talking about expensive mastering houses
>mixes done on EXPENSIVE consoles
So... sound quality.
>I can't think of any metal music with a decidedly upbeat sound.
Uh, how about the majority of power metal and traditional metal?
Why do you think I'm baiting? If you believe me; I'm credible. That's all I meant by that.
If I were to define aggression, it would be clear, punchy, tonal and dark. That's not the best definition uh.. For example, if a drum has a waveform with a powerful, bassy "snap" and "dunk" (or whatever you want to cal it) right at the impact- it's hard. Dubstep has optimized that, so almost any system will deliver maximum impact. Metalheads insist on recording their own shit drums, which tends to be mushy (blurry?) and sits in the back of the mix. Dubstep is in your face, constantly. Even if you don't want that all the time (I know I don't) it's impressive. Dubstep is objectively more "aggressive" by my (and most if not all audio engineers) definition.
>mfw i watched Iron Maiden live last summer
A lot of the stuff by TÝR is pretty upbeat.
As an addendum, if you're not looking for strictly happy lyrics, you might enjoy Savatage's works from their later years - very intriguing and clever turns of phrase that draw you in to the song and get you engaged on a deeper level.
The Hourglass is a very good example of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkvtORNsNyk
Yeah, but popularity isn't measured by things done live, since most music is played over the internet or radio. Granted, like I said, I don't listen to very much metal, so I can't really speak on it though.
Perceived aggression is a purely subjective experience.
Also, acoustic drums >>>> electronic shit.
>but popularity isn't measured by things done live
It actually is, since it gets people to get out, move a distance and pay money to see it rather than play it randomly on youtube.
>If I were to define aggression, it would be clear, punchy, tonal and dark.
Most of the smaller bands only really get dosh from concerts and tours.
No, it isn't. Most popular bands and singers are popular because people have heard them on the radio. That then leads to them getting nicer concerts and such.
Which is why they remain a smaller band.
By smaller I mean 99% of all metal bands.
Truthfully, that applies to 99% of bands period.
No. Not sound quality. Expensive consoles deliver a warm analog sound, alot of metal is done on shitty cheap consoles that sound cold and weak. It's not about the price of the console really- I didn't mean to imply that. It's about the talent behind the consoles.
First, Skrillex writes a song. He produces it on his laptop, winging the mix (balance of sounds) on the go. He's spent years developing his growl basses, his kicks, his snares- they're all clean and powerful. Then it gets sent to a mixing house, where they break it down into stems and balance it on a more accurate sound system. Then it gets sent to a mastering house, which adds some final touches to the sound- compression, equalization, excitation- all of those effects done with old expensive gear. (equipment in the sound industry is often like wine, old doesn't mean bad. Old means vintage, analog, human. So beautiful old equipment is expensive. Skrillex can afford it. ) All in all, alot of people bring the production of a dubstep song to life. Alot of very talented, well paid professionals come together to take a Skrillex track to the next level.
Metalheads don't understand this new age of production. They don't really care to advance past 1980s production standards, so it sounds weak.
there is no aggression in this, it's too stylized to be raw aggression
aggression means screaming because that's what people do when they're aggressive
>are popular because people have heard them on the radio
Thats only true for bands who have yet to become popular.
If you want to measure how popular a band is, you look at the crowds they attract.
There are almost no musicians that get anything out of anything other than touring.
