Metal / Pestilence - spheres
« on: December 12, 2015, 06:03:36 PM »

The synth leads and the dynamically dominant guitars serving the circular redundance leaves it often times to experiment too much into fusion jazz, as a reaction to attempt composition development through the atmospheric intent of this band.

Metal / Torturer - Call of Madness Quebec
« on: March 26, 2015, 03:59:25 PM »
The musicians play death metal.

where this band hits it hard:

Musically literate music composition reminiscent speed metal. remove riff salads, from a simple riff composition. This develops consistence to composition into conclusion versus conclusion in repeat.

Simple riff construction as theme breaks down in decrepitude. Riffs break in whole followed half tone melody with violent percussive change. Resolutions return into reconstruction where the power of chords are the gem of this band.

The sumerian music is both minimal and expressive.
From this small composition there is emotion conveyed.

If you tried the same experiment, depending on how experienced of a guitar player you are, it would be alike learning a saxophone solo on guitar, especially if you use it as a template for tremolo style picking.

Metal / Mononc' Serge - Musique Barbare
« on: January 20, 2015, 11:57:09 PM »
The metal scene was a center of attention to the French Canadians in the 90's.
Voivod, among other bands grabbed the attention of local medias to cover their exploits at some point.

In the later 90's, the metal music lost it's impact and was absorbed by the major disc labels who would prioritize profit over quality of musicianship and art as in all genres.
Metal lost it's apex when the major record companies managed to make the musical genre friendlier to everybody; alike what you hear on CHOM in Montreal and pop music.

By this time, the metal scene in Quebec vanished and the next generation of school kids would know Children of Bodom better than Sentenced. Clubs in the city would fill with punk metal hybrids and metal core then hordes of hipsters came from the generation of my younger siblings, while western civilization proved to be failed system.

In the french canadian culture, pop song writing has long been a tradition.
Speed metal band Anonymus collaborated with song composer Mononc' Serge to produce thrash.
Anonymus shows the ability to adapt the speed metal riff phrasing into entertaining music. The lyrics criticize society with humor, as it is tradition in Quebecois culture in general.

Alike the skateboarder thrash of the times of hardcore and metal of the 80's, Mononc' Serge and Anonymus have produced what was thrash in the US in the 80's. They criticized the failures of society, our views and attitudes towards people, governement and nature.

For those not acquainted with Mononc', there is much to learn and enjoy, avec dla biere pis un joint.

Metal / Ancient Sumerian Electric Tremolo black death Technique

From the simple ambient music of these ancients, I layered distortion guitar tremolo picking over the track to produce sonic landscapes.

I got the demo compilation when it came out.
Lots of interesting footnotes, band stories.

I songs layout is well done.
Gives a good insight into maturation, but production seems just at the time the production restraints limited the impact.

Metal / how many other quality thrash can you name?

In the Autumn Shade - Ceremonium although it can only compete supremacy to No longer Silent.

I give Chthe'ilist  a place

and the effort of Pallor Mortis - The Art of Terror

That's quite the definitive list.
I very much enjoy a lot of these titles and many never listened to.
But would add Blotted Science's first  Machinations of Dementia, as the two LP fit one after the next freaking well.

I agree, simple reason.
Summoning belong to our ancient principles regarding race.
what's best on or for earth?
1 ultimate race or multiple ones?
it's alike what nurture way of life
Their music is not hitler.
Summoning have a great reputation,
like their music, copyright on the internet is serious work :o

Metal / I Review King Crimson Red - death metal
« on: January 01, 2015, 03:07:04 AM »
King Crimson
Red Album

Harmonic rhythym notes jump across 5th power chord music riffing motifs range genre
techniques and play from rock to heavy metal music in an assortment of random jazz beat
music. It has long been typical of much of their freelance rock careers often too.

This group is noted to have influenced Black Sabbath and have in turn produced tribute of
what a generation produced as death and black metal music 30 years later.

Undoubtely and without question, the aesthetic music of the progressive rock genre cannot
side by substance and ideology and spirituality as if comparing Burzum or Sentenced name it to

King Crimson show in older radio rock style, the destruction of limitations of enduring catchy
music, remove popular conventions and attempt experiment in Red. Notable electric guitar
feedback looped room acoustic resonance techniques are used as templates, produce a sonic
resonance and lead melodic development, often alike keyboard orchestra sounds lead
atmosphere in contrast. This is true not only to Red but the technique is typical of their
overall music aesthetic over spanning a lot of their career despite regular staff changes.

Violent minimalism is eeriely present for starters as a lead guitar tone.
Sonic soundscapes are carved since sustained notes often ring.
They ring and intensify by doubled guitars in crushing distortion.

The whole is presented to you with what is half- followed by whole interval melodic song playing
typically yet of the jazz or perhaps rock tradition of song composing.

Vocal songs as popular formatted compositions show movement rather than
immediate resolution in music.
Songs show in contrast another method of composition as opposed to the
conventional  rock major chord resolutions of popular music.

If you went to a theater to watch music performance, love me do rock didn't cut it anymore.
Redundant and eventually contradicting itself in political dogma, the rock format remained
the same anyhow, guitar bass drum and singing lyrics remained as the medium
proved adequate enough to express a much wider range of music than what the format was originally intended for.

The mythological, lyrical content of King Crimson continues a long legacy, reminiscent of much
older works of  this band typically alike what they continue as so-called progressive rock to this day.

Exceptional guitar works can be found still therein parts of songs in albums scarcely if you dare give time.

I found this last year:


As if paying tribute to ancients, the rythym is very rich, guitars produce large sustain, like DBC in ways. A power chord motif leads order into disorder as the leitmotif is repeated inconsistently in between chaotic passages of large intervals giving sense of horror.

Also, Robert Fripp was noted to have invented minimalist music using his electric guitar a tape feedback recorder and distortion.

Metal / Re: Is heavy metal 'rock'?
« on: September 30, 2014, 04:04:59 PM »
The 'Archambault' disc store chains here in Québec split rock music in Anglophone or Francophone music. Metal has it's own dedicated section and Black Sabbath can be found there. Aside from finding stacked skid displays of the latest Children of Bodom album ranging 10$ - 11.99$, I have purchased my own Onward to Golgotha copy for 29.99$ about a year ago. It appears obvious that rock is what sells but in the meantime, somebody in charge within the company is aware of a demand for classics. Among them not only have I found Incantation albums but many others, of course for a generous exchange of dollars in comparison to mass fodder. Importing discs from specific distributors for classics is usually more expensive for them therefore it should explain the price along with a naturally least demanding supply fill-up.


Metal / Re: camel - the snow goose
« on: April 13, 2014, 02:47:38 PM »
I wasn't particularly tired of listening to metal but as an appreciator of music as a whole, Camel, Yes, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple and the list goes on... Is a progressive genre where on some particular albums you may find metallic values.

Off the top of my head, examples : Camel's Mirage, Yes' Relayer and Firth of Fifth from Genesis' Selling England by the Pound ( steve hackett's progressions particularly but this could be debated as to whether it holds metallic elements ) Good classical/rock nonetheless if it serves your interests.

There is much to be discovered whether metal or not.
