    Got thinking the other day how some songs that have incredible riffs don't always have tones that fire me up, and some songs with great tones don't have great riffs. Then there's the sweet spot where that venn diagram overlaps. What 3 songs do that for you? Here's 3 for me: And, for a...

    Tough choices all around but I keep coming back to this. It's just perfect.

    The Havok thread got me in a thrash mood, particularly after going down the Sacred Reich rabbit hole a few weeks ago when Jason died. THis got me thinking it would be cool to have a thread full of great thrash songs. To start it off, how timely is this one right now?

    AKA the swing/boogie rhythm. I noticed a lot of thrash guys have written at least 1 or 2 songs in 12/8, and hell, my old metal band had one as well.. I've been enamored with heavy songs of this ilk lately and I'm curious to hear some of your favorites. Go.
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    What's the best thing you've obtained music-wise in 2019 and why? It can be a guitar, pedal, amp, processor, software, tuner, whatever... Curious to see what everyone's best acquisition was this year.

    What album do you think everyone should hear, but it never got the attention of the metal masses? For me, it's Negatron from Voi Vod. Catchy, original riffs, great arrangements, killer vocals, crushing bass - in many ways the quintessential Voi Vod album (minus Snake's vocals since he was...

    This is probably been done before, but I'm curious how everyone will fill this out. Pick your favorite players, in their prime, and build your metal all-star group. Mine: Vocals/Rhythm Guitar: Mikael Ackerfeldt (Opeth) Lead Guitar: Larry LaLonde (Possessed) Bass: Cliff Burton (duh) Drums: Gene...

    Electric: Ernie Ball 009-042 Acoustic: D'Addario SomethingOrOther. 010-Whatever. Clearly this is important to me. :yesway:
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    I've been mostly relying on the Samplicity Bricasti M7 impulses loaded in ReaVerb, or the Waves Rennaissance, but the impulses aren't the most user-friendly approachh, and the Waves is kinda... uninspiring? It works, it's smooth, but it doesn't really catch my ear as being anything interesting...

    Just curious on everyone's thoughts when it comes to concept albums. Yes they're dorky and mostly convoluted at times, but a concept shouldn't get in the way of an album full of great songs. Such as: Personally I love a lot of them, Joe's Garage, every Pink Floyd album post Barrett until...

    What are your favorite keys/modes to write in or listen to?
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I'm playing six's more and more lately and I'm thinking I need a non-rosewood board in my life. What're some of your guys favorites?
  13. General Music Discussion
    Thought it would be cool to have some examples of everyone's fave guitar tones. Here's a few of mine: And just about anything Ola does...

    https://soundcloud.com/strokeface/volatile-gentleman-show-your-face Added a lyric video for those into that stuff (I hate making them) I'm still working out some mix issues, so whatever feedback anyone has regarding the mix (mainly in the over-all mix, bass/mid/treble frequencies) feel free...

    Im looking for things I may have not heard before. Right now my current favorite is Edward Scissorhands Ice Dance. Gladiator is probably my favorite as a complete soundtrack

    For me it was Angel of Retribution from Judas Priest. I was at best buy I saw it. It looked cool so I bought it. It was like 2 days after it was released so pre-youtube. No real way of easily searching them before I found it

    Been trying to improve my improv abilities a bit lately. These have been my go-tos. What about you guys?

    Personally for me in contemporary music it's ET from Katy Perry. Its extremely simple yet massive kicks and infectious vocal melody. For classical it has to be Beethoven's 5th symphony. Simple for classical music very big sounding and infectious as well.

    I can listen to this solo over and over, it's PERFECT. I know it's not "cool" to like Hammerfall but their early stuff IS good as hell. Legacy Of Kings is maybe one of my top albums. Renegade was good, and then came Crimson Thunder and then I lost interest... but the early stuff will always...
