Metal / The Best Underground Metal of 2014
« on: December 26, 2014, 11:04:21 PM »
The last real edge year for underground metal was 2009 when strong contenders and new voices united to defend extreme metal against the onslaught of imitators making Potemkin village metal from hipster flair and lite-jazz fireworks but underneath it, nothing but disorganized songwriting and an absence of something to express. As the underground has come back with a vengeance, it has begun to displace the imitators because their music simply does not measure up. This has created a backlash as the hipsters defend their territory with guilt, ostentation, pretense and surface-level novelty. On the other hand, the underground has produced some strong contenders.

Metal / MetalGate
« on: December 13, 2014, 12:23:03 AM »
Quote
Metal is still dogged by the issues that arise from its deep-seated conservative values, but thanks to an increase in conversations about racism, politics, and feminism, those on the right side of history have gained solid ground.

http://www.deathmetal.org/article/metalgate/

Best moment:

"For years people have tried to make metal more sociable. They first tried in the mid-1970s when they mixed Black Sabbath with Led Zeppelin and produced hard rock, hoping that they could sell it to more people. 'Sociable' sells. Then they tried in the 1980s with rap/rock, funk metal and other abominations. Finally they hit on nu-metal but that turned into an extended conversation about the impact of child molestation. And then, during the early 2000s, they rolled out a metal/hardcore fusion that had sociable lyrics like hardcore punk has for many years."

Metal / Re: What bands are you listening to today?
« on: December 08, 2014, 05:32:54 PM »
These are the sort of observations you must draw to listen to a lot of Beethoven's music as well. His works are almost always tied together by something that makes it consistent, yet this element is not always the same. Sometimes his way of transitioning through keys is so intense that it is difficult to determine the MAIN key of a movement. Sometimes this movement doesn't even make use of a main key and the main key is determined by the whole work's other movements of which this singular quasi-keyless movement is part of.

How does an artist conceptualize?

Experience -> Conclusion -> Metaphor -> Melody or rhythm-melody pair

The rest is setup for this and note choice follows those needs, with key as a guide more than a boundary.
