Metal / Re: Looks like Immortal might record again

I'll go see them even if their new album wanks with the fury of horny Gods, just because its Immortal and the Avalon isn't too far from here.

But who knows? Maybe it'll be decent, since he said they'll continue where they stopped with Blizzard Beasts, which means it will (hopefully) be in the vein of when Immortal was great

Adding to mayhem's scale advice, learn to switch from bar(sp?) chords quickly, and to speed/tremolo pick down all the strings in a chord quickly (like the "Ea, Lord of the Depths" beginning riff)

Alot of the speed-picked harmonies or riffs in black metal tend to just be the individual notes in chords, so learning those and knowing when to apply them in a song makes it easier and more convenient to play.

Learn to play guitar first, take lessons or buy a book on it, don't get ahead of yourself. You won't be playing actual songs until you actually know how to play the guitar..

Metal / Folk Music
« on: April 18, 2006, 05:19:37 AM »
Reading section IV. Rebirth of "The Philosophy of Heavy Metal" for the third time or so got me thinking even more about my approach to writing music, and the mentioning of Enslaved's "Vikingligr Veldi" even more so. The mentioning of their use of folk music intruiged me, because I've tried getting into it before, but found no way to get into it. So down to the point -

Does anyone who listens to or plays folk music know of any that's really worth listening to, or books/websites that teach how to play?

I had no idea really where else to post this, and since it does involve metal (even if it's a tiny bit) - why not?

Metal / Re: punk/hardcore

(my first post, and all that nonsense)
most of the fans of 'metalcore' that I've met are totally and utterly convinced that it is true metal music and worship and treat me like I am some facist. It's pretty disgusting when I have to see bands like Shadows Fall and Avenged Sevenfold being called "the next Iron Maiden" (There still is an Iron Maiden around, yet there are somehow two new ones...? Retarded music press)

The future looks bleak from my standpoint...
