The reason that no one talks shit about Cliff Burton is probably that the Cliff Burton-AIDS connection is to obvious to have any value of beeing discussed.

The Lord of The Rings were good to be out of Hollywood but were still In my opinion a waste, they didn't contribute to the books in any way but rather destroyed them, at least in my mind, since they made Frodo into a homosexual and Arwen a fucking Lara Croft.


Please excuse my poor english since it aint my mothertongue.

Metal / Re: Can improvised music ever match pre-written mu

Some improvisational music could be structured but for the most part to my ears it sounds like jamming is an easier way out than actually writing music that means something.


That's something I, beeing an "rather good" at least Pianist can confirm. Just to sit and play improvised melodies is easy, you only need a couple of chords and some knowledge of how the tonal scales function. To write "real" music
on the other hand is something that demands a lot more of you.

Re-read the part that says 'modernist classical pieces'.

Bach wasn't 'modernist'. The dissonances present in metal do tend to feature in quite a few of the later composers. I know of one occurence as early as Beethoven's 3rd (published 1806).


Some of Bachs works are rather dissonant, check out the F-Minor Sinfonia.

The clean vocals on "Inno A Satan" were really fucked up.
