    Metal 101 Metal 101 Presentation Transcript

    • Metal 101
      Stuff I think you should care about
      By Keidra
    • First off: I am not an expert
      Listened to metal for 20 years
      Wrote about heavy music for beer money sometimes
      Wrote an essay about listening to heavy metal that people still seem to care about
      Actually waited in line for Dave Mustaine’s autograph
      I attempt to play it badly sometimes
      Probably going to Maryland Deathfest next year
      Go to metalhistory.com if you want it broken down
    • With that… what is metal?
      It starts with the blues, or at least blues rock, which the Brits did best:
      Black Sabbath, essentially the heaviest blues band EVAR
    • What else?
      Riffs, not chords dominate
      Rhythm and Precision
      Distortion
      Dissonant tonality “The Devil Chord/Interval”
      Downtuned guitars
    • But…there’s more!
      Punk and hardcore influence metal a lot, too!
      New Wave of British Heavy Metal
    • 80’s Thrash Metal: The Big 4 and Friends
    • Subgenres
      Thrash metal (The Big 4 and friends)
      Glam Metal (Motley Crue and such – is this really metal? I am not going there)
      Death Metal (Deicide, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse)
      Prog/Power Metal (Dream Theatre, Nightwish, DragonForce,Queensryche)
    • More Subgenres
      Black Metal** (DimmuBorgir, Burzum, Gorgoroth, Skeletonwitch)
      Doom/Stoner Metal and friends (St. Vitus, Trouble, Eyehategod, Kyuss, Down)
      Metalcore (Converge, DEP, Killswitch Engage, Every Time I Die)
      Grindcore and stuff (Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Pig Destroyer)
      Tons of hybrid shit (symphonic metal, post-metal, viking metal, avantgarde metal)
    • Not all Black Metal is racist
      National Socialist Black Metal is the subgenre thematically aligned with the Nazi party.
      Though there is sometimes uncomfortable overlap with some subgenres.
      **Important to Note
    • Also Important to Note
      EVERYONE WILL ARGUE ABOUT WHAT SUBGENRE THEIR FAVORITE BAND ACTUALLY IS AND WHY IT IS THE BEST
      Who’s right? YOU. Everyone else is totally wrong.
    • Pros and Cons
      Pros:
      Diversity! There’s something for everyone! Kinda.
      Cons:
      Way too much to keep up with if you have a job and other hobbies.
      Lots of bullshit posturing about “false metal”
    • Where to start? Your own tastes
      Do you like groove? Maybe Doom metal
      Do you like melody? Maybe Symphonic metal
      Fan of hardcore? Some non-sucky metalcore bands may be for you
      Fan of shit like Rush? You will love prog metal
      Fan of shit like Frank Zappa ? Try avantgarde metal
