I have never heard of Kalmah and am only slightly familiar with Dark Tranquility, so I'm not sure why not knowing those bands is a big deal.
Motorhead is god, Alice in Chains is pretty shit.
Posting massive gif memes should be a bannable offense.
What the fukk is happening around here?

Also

Has a guitar ever sounded better than Pentagram's Relentless?

@Metal_Head1: It's alright, you aren't missing out on much. There are much better Melodic Death Metal bands than those two.

Also, try Armida's Kiss by Forsaken. I know it isn't Eb standard but the tone is godly.

@The Virtuoso: Back on page 2 you identified me having great tastes in Metal for posting Deceased, thanks for that. I hope I don't ruin it by posting this ( ):



The intro riff and solo work by Matias Kupiainen is more or less why I picked this song. Matias added in a lot of fresh work with the jazz/fusion inflections into Power metal which is otherwise dominated by Neo-Baroque wankery. There's also some similar chord progressions to those used in Final Fantasy towards the middle/end of the piece. Nobuo Uematsu most likely got those influences from the Impressionist period so I wouldn't mid betting that those chords were probably derived from Debussy or someone alike.

Jimi Hendrix played in Eb tuning. I think a lot of non-metal artists using it because it's easier to play in as the strings aren't as tight, making bends and whatnot easier on the fingers.

Yeah I started playing in Eb after practicing some Hendrix songs and I find the tension quite a bit more comfortable for tapping, bending and legato.

I started using D standard after learning that almost all Death songs were written/recorded in that tuning. My guitar hasn't been in any other tuning since then.

Lifelover played in a lot of different tunings. Most of the songs on Erotik were in C standard. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that song is in a lower tuning than Eb, sounds like drop C#, but that's just a guess, I haven't seen many other people's opinions on it, a live video or anything else that could confirm this. Good shout though, not enough people in the world appreciate a bit of Llover.

Seether. In the forum for metal. "Hail" Seether.
The Metal forum's showed amazing restraint by not jumping all over you already, but still, that takes some balls. I like the cut of your jib, son.
