    "Mike Patton" credibility, gone. Good job.

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    You can look at the Mike Patton interview where he says he had to intentionally tone down his style just so his score wouldn't detract from the actual film itself.

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    That's a pretty good point, but film scores are created intentionally to compliment the actual movie they're made for.

    september 2013
  • whiskeyhammer95

    v film score composers would disagree. Shouldn't you be sperging out on your RYM lists or something?

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    Even minimalist music has subtlety. A good artist doesn't create an entire concept just to be put as background noise.

    "If you listen to an album because you like the mood and don't care about artistic direction the band wrote it for, you have poor taste" what is ambient music?

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    You just repeated exactly what you said in the last post but 10 more lines of it. How are you getting this emotional out of a normal disagreement?

    september 2013
  • Trash73

    Huh? I gave many examples that backed up my opinion you fucking idiot. For starters I mentioned the pace. There's a reason why Doom Metal bands play slow and Thrash Metal bands play fast - the mood is drastically affected by a change of pace. Why do you think sforzandos are used? To give an immediate, often shocking effect. There are many, many examples of musical notation that effects the pieces mood. It is actually you who have not justified your opinion - your entire screed could be paraphrased to 'music is much deeper than just the mood and if you only interpret it as simple as that then you have bad taste.' Where is the logic behind that? You're a frigging dumbass. Not to mention I stated that is not only what I get out listening to the music I enjoy (read the second sentence of my last shout again.) Finally, of course mood is the most important quality to extreme music - that is why they use the distortion, amps, pedals and instrument technique they use.

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    All I got from that emotional, jumbled abomination of a post is that you're clearly insecure over someone disagreeing with you and that you have no clue how to back up your opinion. Mood is the most basic part of a song or record. If that's all you get out of interpreting a classical or black metal piece, then you have poor taste. If you can't get anything out of an extreme metal song other than that it explores extreme moods since that's "the most important quality", then you're just showing that you only stick to the surface when it comes to appreciating it.

    september 2013
  • Trash73

    Redgrave9, you're full of shit. Mood is the most important quality about music, as with finding a way to connect and engage with the listener (as I touched upon with Nu Metal earlier.) You really think some artists don't deliberately choose scales that fit a perfect mood (pentatonic major is fairly upbeat for example.) As well as sforzandos and the pace of the music clearly are deliberately used to affect the tone. Furthermore, many classical musicians wrote music to fit a mood (Gloomy Sunday and Moonlight Sonata are good examples.) Are you really calling these musicians untalented? You are also ignorant because not only "bands write music." "Direction" is often abstract (especially in classical music) and can't always be quantified. You're nothing but an ignoramus. What you get out of the music depends on the listener's mood, that is all.

    september 2013
  • spineshank155

    dis guy is so trve

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    Because talented artists don't go out of their way to write music to fit a 'mood'. Lyrics aren't even needed to appreciate that. If you listen to an album because you like the mood and don't care about artistic direction the band wrote it for, you have poor taste. Whatever artists you have in your library or scrobble list isn't going to change that.

    "What's wrong with artists that don't take themselves seriously when they go over the top?" It often comes off as a parody of itself.

    september 2013
  • Trash73

    "Also, music is way more deep than labels of emotion. Black metal isn't 'hatred', doom isn't 'sadness', and perceiving it as that is just an example of poor taste." Black Metal is hatred (against Christianity) and Doom is sadness: Shape of Despair, Warning, My Dying Bride, Swallow the Sun, some Candlemass etc. Of course you can read deeper into the lyrics, but I was talking about the general mood, and I fail to see how linking music to moods links to bad taste.

    september 2013
  • Trash73

    "someone hasn't heard the death rock side of psychobilly." I have the - The Hellfreaks - and you could hardly say that music is extreme in nature. It's quite light hearted mood despite the horror filled topics.

    What's wrong with artists that don't take themselves seriously when they go over the top? You can have an emotional impact in your music and still sound overly theatrical or melodramatic. Dragged Into Sunlight or Anaal Nathraakh comes to mind, at least for me.

    ""Talking about metal as cringeworthy and praising goth would be too pathetic." Unlike Metal, Goth music doesn't try too hard to be overly emotional, sinister, or extreme in sound (whilst falling flat on it's face in attempts to connect with the listener seriously.)" someone hasn't heard the death rock side of psychobilly.

    september 2013
  • spineshank155

    Metal isn't supposed to appeal to your intelligence. (The vast majority anyway.) It's supposed to appeal to the lizard part of your brain that just wants to jump around like an idiot while screaming stupid lyrics about dragons or zombies or satan or weed at the top of your lungs and banging your head like a Drinking Bird toy having a massive seizure. [2] HAHAHA THIS! IN RAGECAPS!

    september 2013
  • Trash73

    (continued 2) But then again, if whiny bands like Warning, Swallow the Sun really appeal to your emotional side then I don't give a f*ck. Plus, if you are really in the "I want to rip your guts out" mood then Beherit, Blasphemy, Archgoat type bands are all for it. However, don't you dare say any of those bands they are as emotionally mature and intelligent as Luxembourg's Rome, Theatre of Tragedy, The Cure etc.

    september 2013
  • Trash73

    (continued) That's not to say only Metal is the only genre that comes off as over emotional and appears cringe worthy in the process - Linkin Park come to mind (especially in the choruses.) There are some Metal albums that sound true from the heart - early Katatonia, Candlemass, most Metallica and some more but they are few and far between. Really, I always thought Nu Metal was the most honest and outspoken genre of them all. It speaks to the listener and works especially well with the low whispered vocals which then explode which J.D famously did in the early albums. A lot of Nu Metal vocalists also have a grungy / Alt Rock vocal style which adds another emotional dimension to the music - some Mudvayne and Limp Bizkit come to mind. Plus the bass, which often contrasted with the music: The music exclaims "hey we appear really angry" but we'll add this funky, groovy bass line in and remind you it's still about having FUN. What made Nu metal honest is it explored all emotions.

    "Talking about metal as cringeworthy and praising goth would be too pathetic." Unlike Metal, Goth music doesn't try too hard to be overly emotional, sinister, or extreme in sound (whilst falling flat on it's face in attempts to connect with the listener seriously.) Goth music creates more of a swirly atmosphere with the drone wash chords and sampled strings. Rather than sounding sinister, it simply suggests it, which allows you soak up the atmosphere to greater effect. Goth Music is most easily compared to Symphonic Metal, yet it's so much more intelligently arranged than your typical washed out "tritone, pads and strings, double bass, hail satan" Symphonic Metal band. Much more tension and drawn out atmosphere is created in a typical Fields of Nephilim song.

    I'm gonna assume the goth thing is a joke... Talking about metal as cringeworthy and praising goth would be too pathetic.

    september 2013

    "Nowadays, I find Metal just tries too hard to be overly extreme or just comes off as incredibly cheesy." Then you never listened to right kind of metal.

    september 2013
  • spineshank155

    Not all metal is about anger death sadness, ect like this. Of course when most people hear metal i guess hatred and death are all what some people see, it's their loss if they don't like it. @whiskeyhammer95: I think he has some kind of flow chart contingency plan.
