INSIDE METAL delivers quintessential candid interviews with metal icons and the pivotal players in the music business including musicians, managers, concert promoters and the utmost devoted practitioners. INSIDE METAL is about giving fans the real inside story from the behind the scenes world of metal and hard rock with in-depth interviews, ultra-rare concert footage and photographs, and an original music score from that era; in this no-holds-barred, never before seen, recollection of untold stories.

METALROCK Films takes you on a transcendental journey into heavy metal’s yesteryear in this compelling two part opus INSIDE METAL: The Pioneers of L.A. Rock and Metal, the first of a trilogy documenting the Los Angeles Metal Scene.  From the mid to late ‘70s, guitar-driven rock bands such as Metallica, Dokken, Quiet Riot, Van Halen, Great White, Armored Saint, W.A.S.P., Testament, Megadeth and others, ruled the Los Angeles and Orange County nightclubs like The Starwood, The Whisky, Gazzarri’s, The Golden Bear, Goldenwest Ballroom, and backyard parties throughout the Southland! Check it out here.

The documentary is getting rave reviews from viewers and artists in the industry. Blasko, the bassist for Ozzy Osbourne stated he “…didn’t know much about this era of the rock scene in LA as I was too young to experience it. Inside Metal was a fun and informative look into the foundation of the LA Metal scene.” Madonna’s guitarist Monte Pittman said the documentary was “…like a college course in music history.”

It’s not too late to be a part of the L.A. Metal Rock History.

Dark ambient/electro-industral project Cryosyncopy‘s new album Culmination 2 is now available to download in its entirety for free from HIARCTOW.com.

Produced once again by Síol Na Gréine, Culmination 2 follows in the paradigm of brooding, spacey, industrial ambient laid down by Culmination 1, whilst adding a more melancholy melodic sensibility to some of the quieter moments.

Metal / Re: Extreme music for extreme people? a paper by Michelle Phillipov
« Last post by Spinal on October 13, 2014, 08:54:56 AM »
I read her 2012 book when it came out. I appreciated that she made an effort to analyze the actual music, but as you said, the defense she put forward was kind of lame. Can't say I remember much else though! Still, it is definitely one of the better metal related books I've, which speaks for the poor state of metal writing in book form. Atleast the books I've come across. One book I don't see much mention of is Andrew Cope's Black Sabbath and the rise of heavy metal music. The author points out differences between metal and rock with Sabbath and Zepellin as case studies.

The link doesn't work, is there some kind of automatic "correction" going on?

I'm sure there isn't anything like this in existence for several different reasons:

1) quotation/emulation is too common in music, so nobody cares about performing these checks. if this idea was born in your mind, it is ok if it resembles others' ideas.

2) the algorithm would be very complicated and a huge database of scores  in standarized format and algorithms to read and compare them would be necessary.

3) the market for this is very limited. the proportion of work to usefulness is very large.

Metal / (Metal) Music score or tablature search engine, on a note-to-note score basis?
« Last post by Spinal on October 11, 2014, 06:53:55 PM »
I'm wondering if anyone is aware of the existence of a music score(or sheet music, whatever. I'm not that familiar with the correct terms) or tablature search engine where you can for example type in a series of notes and let the engine search for scores which contain these series of notes? I'm sure this is available for classical music (maybe not in the way I image it, but something similar) but how about metal music? For example, it would be nice to be able to transcribe a riff you believe that you just made up, and find out that Sodom or someone else used it in the 80s. Well, even nicer if noone else has used the riff before.

Of course, metal tunes are often only available (if at all) in tablature format. And there's more to metal song/riff-writing than just the notes and chords, but I don't think it would be impossible to construct such a thing, even if it would have it's limitations. Sheet music would be preferable, with all the limitations of atleast the forms of tablature I know of (like the stuff you can find at metaltabs.com, etc.)

Metal / Re: Profanatica - Progenitors of the Omni-Riff
« Last post by Spinal on October 10, 2014, 09:43:47 AM »
I was struck by the obvious similarity between the latest Profanatica album and Necrovore's demo from '87, but I'm sure someone has already mentioned that somewhere. Haven't really heard any band trying to bring new into that brand of death metal, or are there any other examples of this style/riffing-style?
