And no offense, but 98% of the metal guys who think they know theory (which usually relates to classical western music theory)......really don't. There are 3-4 guys (atleast the ones who post about theory alot) between here and ss.org with a really good understanding (serious props to those guys), the rest are mostly just guys trying to impress by throwing around the phrases key change and polyrhythm.
