Metal / Re: Trophic levels in metal?

Yeah that makes sense. When I'm writing a little song or doodling around I try to get the whole energy transfer thing right (I'm not that great at it). I never thought of it this way though.

Metal / Re: YOUR metal timeline
« on: December 23, 2010, 01:48:41 PM »
Around.. 2002-2003: Listened to my mum's music, e.g. Robbie Williams, country shit
2005 or so - Alt rock bands like Nirvana, SIlverchair, Powderfinger (Australian)
2007 - Melodic punk such as Rise Against
2008 - Cousin started getting me into some stuff like Metallica and Slayer. Always hated nu-metal and metalcore.
2009 - I know everything about thrash and listen to a lot of progressive stuff such as Dream Theater, Voivod, Vektor, Watchtower etc
Still scared of death metal.
2010 - Attempt to get into death metal and succeed. Started with Amon Amarth and other Gothenburg bands until I accepted bands like Death, Cryptopsy, Atheist, etc
Current - I have a very narrow taste in music and I don't know why.. Like some black metal, mostly prog/death stuff though.

Appalling Spawn - Freedom, Hope and Fury
Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris

They're essentially the same band but the albums are pretty different

Metal / Re: 61% of metal fans listen to classical

Wow.. I wasn't aware that much metal fans enjoyed classical. I was also surprised when I saw the percentage that listened to rap... But yes, apart from metal I do like to listen to classical and jazz, all of my peers think I'm stupid for that so I always thought that classical music was only listened to by a select number of metalheads...

Metal / Re: Listening to an album as a whole
« on: December 11, 2010, 12:03:49 AM »
I know lots of people aren't a big fan of Chuck over here but I reckon earlier Death albums (Leprosy, Spiritual Healing) are best listened to as a whole. Despite the predictability of early Death they still make for a very good listen. Also ditto on most of the black metal albums as a whole. Lots of doom metal also has that 'complete' feel to it as well I reckon.
