Black metal = the equivalent of punk?

Well, to make your music purposely have a shitty quality to it in some way, is sort of punkish.

punk does it because they think being bad means you have integrity, fuck that talent shit just sit down and fucking play!

not all black metal has bad production but the ones that do do it because it gives it atmosphere apparently and keeps it non-commercial

making music that is hard to listen to is fine and all, but poor production should never be done intentionally to keep out the "mainstream" audience

I'm starting to think Konami is big fans of Symphony X, since Castlevania music sounds almost exactly like it

(or maybe it's the other way around but I doubt it)

If I remember correctly that was a huge thing in Japan with bands like Malice Mizer and Dir En Grey, so yeah I guess Konami just went with the big thing at the time

Don't forget that some Black Metal bands limit the number of copies to something small like 666 copies or 1,000 at th most. All the 'kvlt' factor of course.

Not to mention bands having ludicrous names like ██████ - Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives (no, it seriousky looks like that).

(Yes I know Necro has left the building but I thought I bring that fact up)

Speaking of which, I recently purchased Rainbow Rising by Rainbow, Dehumanizer by Black Sabbath, Emperor's Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk and Hosannas from the Basements of Hell by Killing Joke. All good stuff all around.

So I've been listening to this band lately, and coming to understand what exactly they're doing is pretty neat. Each of their albums represents a different style of heavy metal, prog metal, power metal, etc. Not just with lyrical themes, but with the style of play between all instruments as well, and they even change vocalists fairly often. Seems like specific songs imitate specific bands, too, but there's only a couple I've heard so far that are really apparent.

BLOODBOUND - NOSFERATU sounds like Iron Maiden

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzowfpxJJUo sounds like Angra

But I'm pretty sure all their stuff is supposed to sound like something or other, like that's the gimmick. And I like it, having all the music sound familiar already, but hearing lots of different styles across an album.

The one album I don't like, but that's because it has a vocalist I don't like. Compare Bloodbound - Book of the Dead to the newer version on their latest album. Bloodbound - Book Of The Dead (2012 Version)

The sound, particularly the relationship between the sound and the vocals, is mega shitty, especially when you put it next to a much better version.

I've decided to compare the remastered version of 'See Through Dreams' and the one I've ripped from my copy of Death's Human onto my laptop (due to Necro's own comparison between that song and Portal's Black Houses) and I have to say the remaster did a damn good job of making an amazing song sound even better. Then again I dig both bands and I like the 'wall of sound' style that I think suits some bands better than others.

I've been having a major hardon for instrumental tracks lately, so I figured I might ask what you guys think of them in general, or which ones you like. Also songs that have multiple minutes of instrumental at a stretch probably count, like Hangar 18 or somesuch. These are my typical favorite instrumentals, not in any particular order. I enjoy when they can do it right, with it laid out like a normal song, just with interesting instrument work rather than singing to focus on, like an excuse to do a bunch of solos, without making it feel like they just wanted to throw a bunch of solos at you.

Hammerfall - Something for the Ages

Iced Earth - 1776 (Normally I don't care for Iced Earth because of their singer, but I still think this is a pretty grand instrumental piece.)

Yngwie Malmsteen - Black Star (I really like the slow, meaningful progression and feel of this one.)

Liquid Tension Experiment - Acid Rain

Stratovarius - Stratofortress (This might be the one that got me to really like instrumentals in the first place.)

Saxon - Rainbow Theme / Frozen Rainbow (This one has some singing in the first song, but the two typically go as a set.)
