I can not stay away to be honest. I have tried but I feel this is the best forum and site ever, if I was to be expressive!

People here are scattered throughout the world so it would be difficult to come in contact with each other.
also, I think people here come from too much different background and have different path in life that some of us would not get along very well in real life especially if the encounter is planned.

Speak for yourself - I've made two valuable friends off this board. I'd gladly share a few beers with most anyone on this forum.

I am a HUGE craft beer lover and have had the honor of trying some great brews!

Thus far I have made one friend here and even lived with him for a time. I still keep in touch as our lives are radically different. I do want to inspire in some way if I can..

This decision did not come lightly but I do not want to come back if things are on the right track because to me that would be a poor example.  No one should go away when times or tough.

What mostly is my personal issue is I can not relate to internet culture so thus I step away from it. I know there is those who are indeed shut out and it makes it hard to expand on your social skills.

Maybe the other reason is, as much as a leader I know I can be( I have an ability of getting people excited and motivated) I have to do it in terms I can relate.

With so many different schools of thoughts here, I knew not to be something I was not or try to fit it. I can tell you as I have always been able to, that I am emotional more then I would like. I do not look like a traditional Hessian and I am very social in my dealings. I am the only one in my small Southern Jersey town who can boldly walk the town with death metal/black metal t-shirts and have friends from very other walks of life.

I will think of this more and always offer my knowledge or energy in some way that I can do best. I think of this site as the number inspiration force in my foundation. I could not walk away for good when I truly think about it.

In any way, thanks Humanicide for your words. I will reflect more on this in the days to come.


And yes, on a more personal note, I have lost both grandparents earlier this year. You can imagine I had to reflect much on their deaths and even still I am reflecting on it at the end of the year...

It has been 12 years, off and on, that I have enjoyed this forum. I believe this forum to be the most powerful and thought provoking one today. It has shaped my knowledge of metal and the deeper meaning behind it. For what it is worth I always mention this site in my everyday conversations.

But the time of my departure is here. I had the ideal that I could meet other metal heads in a physical sense, instead of just writing on this forum. Maybe this whole time I was clueless as to the nature of my fellow  Hessians, and I have to understand that I am different from the normal, even here.

I came to this forum in 2000, and had the pleasure of some of the greatest conversations ever, and with those beings who are legendary. Antti Boman and Larry and Corey from Acerebus come to mind.

I feel that I have not done  my part here as I should. As stated about or to be clear, I like interacting with people and not sitting behind the screen. I thought by me making a video(s) that I could maybe inspire some more social interaction between us here. Again, I have done wrong and assumed that I could make an impact or bond friendships with fellow Hessians.

So thus I have decided to continue on the path  since coming to this forum and create my art, and spread it to various places. On a side note, I have had the honor of writing an official song for a underground cd compilation, so this has compelled me to excel my efforts. I am 32 and I know that someday I will not be  able to physically play so I am going forward with this effort.

While I do admit to liking some attention in what I create, this in no way means that I will solely create art for this point alone. No, I have learned well here, and will carry the spirit of this website in a real physical form.

I thank those who have showed the path, and for the life of me, I can not recall the various names I had as my user name(moving across country and computer crashes caused this dilemma) so many of you may not know who I am. But I raise a glass to you and celebrate your knowledge.

RIP GIOVANNI 2000-2012

Great question! Most of the time if I am just creating a one off song, I look to create riffs on how I feel and it seems to escalate from their. My newest offering is such:

This is a great topic in which I can contribute more than any other. I have been in rigorous practice then usual, and my playing has improved.  That being said, if I could make an outline of the different death metal riff types, I can make some youtube videos displaying this riffs.

Ah yes sorry I forget to answer the question. I believe this is how I perceive it be a pedal tone or a slight variation or rather maybe even an alternating pedal tone.

In classic Demilich fashion, a lot the riffs are based on using the A and C( or in tabulation, 0 and 3 on the low A string)  in this alternate pedal tone fashion.

Just a short example of one riff morphing using other techniques...

When I think Pedal tone I think of Demilich and this riff in particular :

« on: September 06, 2012, 08:24:50 PM »
Why is this called southern Europe ruined again and not Spain ruined again? What does this have to do with southern Europe as a whole?

Well, Greece and Italy aren't looking so fiscally hot either for one thing.

You would be surprised that Italy is better then you think....

Oddly enough, my father and I were talking about this same subject, in one form of another. He remembers watching sci fi movies from the 70's, and recalling that such themes were way out there. But now those same themes are becoming reality.

Case in point, regardless of agenda, political or religious, the earth is becoming over populated. We need to realize that if we continue this way, we will end the human race as we know it. For example: if there is only food for 3000 deer, but there is 10000 deer, the total deer populate will consume the food it needs. Same as humans, we will extinct ourselves to death, unless we face reality. Soylent  Green!

I enjoy coffee very much but I do limit my intake. Espresso is my choice of drink.

I do not drink as much tea as I should, but I really should drink more for health
