I have read many negative comments in many forums and on youtube about Metallica, but I never saw that they were Arrogant, Repetitive, and Boring
You wanna know who really is Arrogant? Guns and Roses, for example..
Repetitive? Slayer, Anthrax just to name a few
Boring? Megadeth, Pantera... The same music over and over again for many years..
I have seem them 3 times in this World Tour and they just kick ass..
Changing the subject.. Have you guys read the recent article from Rhythm Magazine "The 20 greatest drummers of the last 25 years".. Who do you think is the #1?? Mike Portnoy? - Fail!!.... Neil Peart? - Fail!!...
Check it out.. http://www.musicradar.com/rhythm/gre...334/20#content
Just a correction the one who's arrogant is Axl Rose not the rest of the band wether is the old or the new one. (well I like him that way he was never suposed to be a nice guy from the begining his songs were honest about his person)
And Megadeth are not boring but I would put Mustain in the arrogant class
Wasn't the 1# drumers in that magazine Joey Jordison from Rob Zombie and Slipknot?

So later today I'm heading out to a Creed and Skillet concert. Now Creed is mostly hard rock however they have a few songs that border on metal in the sense of their heaviness. Skillet on the other hand bounces from Hard Rock to Alternative Metal very often and I really love them for that style. Both bands also come under Christian Rock/Metal so that definitely is a plus in my book. Looking forward to going and I'm hoping it doesn't rain because its in an outdoor stadium .
For those who don't know the bands here are some links
One of Creed's heaviest and most metalesque songs "Bullets"
One of my favorite Skillet Songs - "Collide". Its very powerful in terms of vocals and I love the high points of it.
Again these are hard rock bands that border on alternative metal so some of you really heavy guys might not enjoy them as much but I thought I'd drop them off anyway. Plus I'm too excited for the concert not to talk about these bands .
I enjoy Creed I'm more towards Hard Rock than Metal. But they are brothers and sometimes the bands jump from one side to another.
I listen to metal when I want to hear those heavy rythims and listen to Hard Rock when I want those cool Guitar solos.
The concert was amazing! Skillet was probably one of the best opening bands I've ever seen. They had a pretty extensive stage set up for just being an opening band. I think parts of it were even better than Creeds main stage. They had moving platforms, smoke, and lights. What was sweet about the platforms was that the violinist and cheloist would stand on them and play while they would move up and down. Overall it was a pretty sick set up . Anywho the concert was in an outside stadium/theater that was actually on the water. It was raining and the water level was rising around the theater to the point where the first few sections actually got flooded. Overall it was pretty epic.
As usual I bring back the gift of videos!!! So far I only have two skillet up and I plan on putting a creed up at some point .
Awake and Alive - Skillet
Rebirthing - Skillet

Well I just want something new that I don't know to play so that will do it. I'll go trough the list now.
Lately I've been teetering between Disturbed's new album Asylum and the band Flyleaf.
Asylum overall is a really amazing album, its heavy and its got everything good in it that Disturbed has always brought to the table. Some of my favorite songs would be Asylum, Crucified, Another Way To Die, My Child, and more but I don't want to just list the whole album .
Flyleaf on the other hand is a bit more in the rock direction but their female singer does scream on occasion and that is pretty sick. Plus they have some pretty good christian messages in a few of their songs and thats always a plus when it comes to me
Latelly I've seen many metalhead that are christian and that spread the christian message in their songs and still the church still has many issues with metal only because metal artists wear black and look a bit different than usual.
guitar solos and no mention of the band i saw live on saturday....
Muse- Stockholm Syndrom recorded saturday guy must been next to me
also check out Plug In Baby, Newborn (my fav)..Muse are all bout guitar riffs
i seen flyleaf live..it was ment to be Atreyu but the time list changed n didnt tell everyone....wasent really feeling them
It's great to try and get new techniques, but as Billy Sheehan puts it in this video, it's not really about the technique, but the desire to play music that makes a musician better at what he/she does.
Yes Muse, although they aren't necessarily heavy, they do have some pretty good guitar solos from time to time. I like them for that and for the uniqueness of many of their songs .
Yea, Flyleaf is a new interest to me. I've always known about them but I guess once I found out she screamed at times I finally decided to make a move on them and now I actually like them quite a bit. I dunno, I've always liked Female vocalists especially in metal bands and rock bands that are on the heavier side. They always add a nice touch to things. I also love songs with Male and Female vocals because the contrast of the two are usually awesome .
@ The Paperman Wow that guy is a kcikass player O.o and he told a lot of truths your technique will catch up with you eventually and allow you to reach your creational potential.
