Metal Music - Discussion

Postby Tydome » Wed May 11, 2011 2:59 am

In today's society, heavy metal is looked as evil, satanic, corrupt, bad and rubbish. Many people think it makes people drop school, do bad things, suicide, and other ****. It's true that there are true Satanic Bands that do believe in Satan, but they don't make up the Metal Scene. I use to think that metal is evil but if i never explored into it, heard and examined the lyrics properly how could i ever find out? I searched for random heavy metal bands on google, picked out some of the bands, youtube'd them and i listened to the lyrics, i didn't find them evil or bad as i thought. I am not saying that people should listen to metal or saying that they shouldn't believe that metal is not evil. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Not all metal songs sound like what many people think. Many songs try to tell a message, tell a story about a person or a historical event, etc. VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED!

I used to be really into it but now I don't really care for it all that much. It's all right, but I'm into other genre's now.

Always depends on the band or song, but I'm more into classical now instead of metal. I never liked any screaming in anything I listened to.

you should look up some modern metal too. most of them has a lot of screaming, but personally i perfer that before "classic" metal.
try popular bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet for my Valentine.

my parents dont like that i play metal guitar. when they heard metal they used to be like "OMG SATANIST". I recently bought a BFMV hoodie, and my mother didnt say anything about it and acted like she didnt notice, but then she started buying me lots of neutral tops :P

and yeah, its sad that many people label metal that way. my bestie called it meaningless screaming :roll: i used to like rap and pop ect, but from the moment i heard my first A7X song i changed taste because you actually need TALENT to play this kind of music. And the lyrics are deep, not just "i want to hold you baby" or "bump bitches and shoot police".

But there is still lots of junk within the metal genre. the songs are not good because metal is good, but because the band/artist is. if its a bad band then the music is shit.

Hard rock, metal, heavy metal. It all rocks. Hard Rock has some of the best though :P ACDC and GNR for the win.

People who associate satanism with rock obviously don't know much about rock... Or satanism either. Usually I don't talk about it with people who I believe have these assumptions.

Of the metal genre, I like Megadeth and Nightwish. Megadeth is more 80's/classical metal while Nightwish is symphonic metal and 2000's.

Yeah, it annoys me when people can make it big by just getting everything handed down to them. No musical talent or knowledge or whatever. Just an autotuned voice, a pretty face, and you're good to go.

There are some rappers though that I think are good. Eminem, 2Pac, maybe Sean Paul and Lazee (The song "Top Notch" is... somehow addictive).

That's the weird thing about metal. Other genres aren't like that for the most part.

I guess you could say it's because it's predictable, but that makes it sound like metal sucks. At least you know if a band kicks ass, then everything they come out with probably will too. You can't really say that about other genres.

Some guy that many people believe that rules hell. AKA the Devil

No offense to any Christians. But many Christians believe Rock/Metal is the Devils Music, i don't know if there is anything in the bible regarding Devils Music or anything. (I'm not a christian at all)

(True christians know that hell doesn't exsist.. *Cough cough*)
(It's mostly lyrics that christians are warned about. And in that case, rap is waaaaay worse.)

Yeah, metal is one of the few skilled genres left.

Ignorance is what kills people, not music. If you're dumb enough to let the words of another breed your inability to control yourself then you have no reason to be breathing in the first place.

“The greatest ignorance is to reject something you know nothing about”

Many people think: Screaming, Headbanging, Dark Clothes, Satan, Blood and Gore, Crazy Guitars and drums is metal. I think that is more Extreme Metal. Traditional Heavy Metal or the 80's metal wasn't much like what people thought.

I like metal because it is a pretty flexible Genre. It can be fast, it can be slow. It can have dark themes or historical themes and many more. It could have Poetic Lyrics or direct lyrics, etc.

Really, everyone i know. Only a rare few respect or listen to Heavy Metal for what it is. Music. Not some kinda Devil Worshipping music, or what ever ridiculous things people think. Really, It's just music for friggin sakes, many bands use hell as a marketing thing, to sound cool and attract people. It explores things that we hide from in a form of music, I doubt i have heard a Modern Pop song about Death?. Metal cheers me up when i'm feeling low. Or sometimes Metal Bands write songs as a tribute to soldiers and others.
