Metal and Asian Music

So after Gangnam Style I geniunely enjoyed it and that led me to viewing some other K-pop/J-pop stuff and I found myself enjoying it. All the music was something that i wouldn't turn my radio off to if you know what I mean. i didnt particularly love them all, but i enjoyed them. but there are some I love.

Today i worked out why with a good old related video revealing all. It appears to me they have some kind of formula for music, most songs sound the same, follow similar patterns, feature similar catchy riffs but for some reason i like them all for different reason.

they are metal!!!! they translate so easily. the example I found:

This is a girl band called f(x) and when i heard this song i loved it. It's probably my most played song at the moment (sorry metallica), its amazing, catchy and got that lovely beat we all crave, here it is:



and then i found this very well put together metal rework....



thoughts?

Best thread. I've listened to nothing but K-Pop for the last month or so (yes, my newfound awareness of it was due to Gangnam Style). Previously, nearly my entire library was metal so I'm in the almost exact same position as you

As for the videos in the OP, f(x) haven't been one of the artists I've been into as of late but that song was pretty catchy. It seemed to translate well into metal, but I definitely preferred the original.

On a similar note, an American hard rock girlband called Nylon Pink covered Hyuna's recently released Ice Cream and I thought it was pretty good.

Original (starts at 0:42 after the shameless view-grabbing attempt)

That isn't Asian music. That's western pop music from Asia.

^ Yeah, I don't like Hyuna's stuff too much. 4minute are one of my favourite groups and it's a shame that she (and everyone else) is focusing on her solo stuff instead of releasing something new with the group. I've listened to everything they've already released far too much.

That group I posted doing the cover also have other covers of SNSD, 2NE1, and I think some boy groups on their channel. There's also some original stuff but I'm not too keen on it.

their cover of Blue by Big Bang is incredible.

on a side note, big bang are a fascinating band. I honestly watch their videos trying to work out if they are actually male or female sometimes.

Everything Hyuna does that isn't solo is great.

SNSD puts out far too much garbage relative to their 4-5 good songs.

It seems all Korean boy bands are very feminine. I guess that's just appealing over there . I haven't yet found a boy group I really enjoy listening to yet.

I was asking because your profile didn't seem to agree that you didn't care for metal.

I concur about Hyuna. SNSD are completely very hit and miss for me. I feel that they're getting progressively worse (with some exceptions), too - especially that latest song. I think their TTS subgroup is a lot better, the main group has a lot of dead weight.

I am a sucker for a good mash up. not sure what kind of music you like but Wax Aduio uses stuff from metallica, iron maiden, jimi hendrix and the beatles and mashes them up with really poppy songs. i love them. this is a particular highlight:




That SAWAGii guy (that did the metal rework in the OP) does a lot of similar things with songs such as lady gaga and other stuff like that. quite clever.


and on the topic of Boy bands, Big Bang and Simple Junior are pretty good to be fair. again, very similar songs, just slightly different.

I also found out these groups can have up to 30members. apparently its a really big thing in the asias to build a personality for each person to cater to everyone. so theres always the really feminine guy, the really masculine guy, the bad guy, the cute guy, the good guy, the sweet guy, the douchebag etc etc. they dont like to exclude anyone!
