This makes perfect sense. The smartest people are going to see the things wrong in society and will be naturally attracted to metal. Although the bands mentioned are pretty mainstream and it can be seen that they are just following the fad, which is probably the case. Of course beign smart and having good grades are two different things altogether. But it does mention they performed the study at a school for the gifted which means the students attending there are probably truly smart.

Are they?


Real metal-heads are. At least they'll believe pretty much the same things their whole life. I don't see how it's possible that someone can change in that way.

From what I've noticed is that the school system, pre-college at least, has many flaws and many illogical aspects. The nature of metal-heads is to question everythign and not just accept and go with the flow. It's very hard to conform to somethign so obviously inadequate.

People are metal-heads before ever listening to metal, idealogically at least. There are people that do not accept everything in the world as "just the way it is". They question it and try to change it. Then they find metal which has the same ideals and become metal-heads.

I agree that rap is generally much worse moral wise(by christian standards) than metal. Yet it is odd, as some people have pointed out, that rap is more socially acceptable than metal. To me it seems that the three reasons that rap is more socially acceptable is that 1. It is seen as a fad that children will grow out of while most metal-heads are metal-heads for life, 2. Most metal-heads are openly opposed to christianity while most rappers claim to be very devout, and 3. Basic metal idealogy is to question authority and rebel to the dysfunctional world we live in while rap is mroe about cursing alot, wearing "bling", and bangin' them bitches. Although, as with metal, it is hard to understand a group as an outsider.

Metal / Re: Metal: a different technicality
« on: March 05, 2007, 11:52:21 PM »
I think we can make a compromise. They're difficult for different reasons. Guitar is a complicated instrument. You have to be constantly moving both hands, both hands move at different times, etc. Instruments like clarinet or flute are very simple and therefore easy to play. Not only this, much metal is extremely fast. So you can say individual metal artists play better than individual classical musicians, but in a large group, metal musicians don't even compare.

I have been misunderstood yet again. They have to know what they're doing and be able to play they're instruments well, but they're level of skill does not have to be extremely high as all BM/DM musicians have to be. As I've said, I've played classical music, and the hardest part is keeping time and not losing your place. Having a good musical ear is important too. You have to be able to hear what is going which is hard because of all the thigns going on at once in a song. I'm just saying that there's not really that much skill per se needed to play classical music, but you do need other things which probably musicians of other genres don't have.

Relapse understood what i was trying to say. @Snoopdawg: I wasn't refering to classical music as not being technical, but i was referring to the individual parts played by the individuals. The individual players don't have to be very skilled as the parts they play in the music is generally somewhat easy. Although classical muscians can be very talented and skilled with their instruments, generally they're not. From personal experience in playing classical music, pretty much anyone playing their instruments for four or five years can pick any piece of classical music and play it nearly perfectly the first time they see it.

You misunderstand what I meant. But i guess it's my fault for being vague. I just don't know the words to explain what I mean. I mean something along the lines of that timing is more important than skill with instrument. Maybe somebody can understand what I mean.

Fairly decent sized island and a fairly resonable price. all of you from this site can save up and buy that island and build a community there.

Metal / Re: Is metal timeless?
« on: February 21, 2007, 10:39:31 PM »
i do not believe metal is timeless.  after this generation dies off, metal will be completely gone, at least like we know it now. it might grow into something new. probably that rap metal or metalcore stuff will survive for a while and it might die there, or it might develop into somethign completely new once again. metal is too good to last. everyone should know that people only listen to crap and even the mainstream stuff doesn't last. sort of liek disco. it was big in the 70s. peopel from the 70s still listen to it. once they die, disco will pretty much die. i see that in metal's future.

metal musicians are definately more skilled. in metal, the music is simple, but the musicians have to be talented. in classical music, it's all abotu how complicated the song is. that's why only the conductors get recognition in classical music. they have to write a very complicated song with over 100 different parts. so it's the song structure that is very difficult, the individual skills of each musician in an orchestra is not that important. the only thing they need is being able to keep track of all the music so they have perfect timing. in metal, the song structure is much simpler, there's only 4 or 5 parts usually. so individual talent is much more important.

Metal / Re: Death metal from Africa

One more thing: I personally think Africans should stick to rap or reggae or other black music. Rap is for blacks, metal is for whites, anything in between is a travesty. Excuse me, but why the fuck would anyone want Africans to make metal anyway? So they can be more like whites? It seems to me only bad things can come from this. Let them stick to their own culture, and let us stick to ours.


wow. can't believe the ingnorance. rock music grew out of black music in new orleans. albeit, metal was invented by whites, it still grew out of traditional rock, which was derived from black music.
