Hi,

Could you suggest some bands that have difficult songs, such as Metallica or Guns N' Roses. Some songs are just too easy (e.g. P&V by Anthrax can be learned in 15-30mins) and many have no solo.

I'd mostly be interested in some hard rock/progressive metal. So death/black metal is for sure something I wouldn't play

And please don't suggest satanic/anti-christian bands

Thanks!

Rush - anthem, spirit of the radio,
Dream Theater - under a glass moon, pull me under
Tourniquet (they even happen to be Christians. Most definitely excellent musicians) - tomb of gilgamesh, ark of suffering

Dream Theater and BTBAM are torture playing, but are totally worth it.

I'm just going to recommend Tool, because they're ridiculously fun to play and you can always play them with a little bit more control than what you're currently playing them at.

Please grow up. That's an incredibly dense position to take.

Check out The Mars Volta, Protest The Hero, Six Gallery and Electro Quarterstaff.

How about some Iron Maiden? The Trooper is always a fun one, so is Hallowed Be Thy Name.
If you like solos, I think the final solo on Mr. Crowley by Ozzy is unbelievable, one of my favorites for sure.
Pantera is always fun too, try learning Cowboys from Hell. Not necessarily hard but very groovy and it does have a solo so there you go.
Gibson LP Studio
Taylor 518E
Washburn WD15SCE acoustic electric

I think it's kinda mature position: I think that satanic lyrics are destructive so I avoid them.

Thanks for your replies,

Tool seems to be nice, I'll look into it.
Any other ideas? Skid Row seems to be something nice for me , I forgot to tell about it in the OP

Perhaps you should grow up and respect his personal taste in music. If that's his preference in music then who the hell are you tell say he is dense? Nobody, that's who. That was a pretty arrogant/douchebag thing to say.

Because refusing to listen to an artist or even a genre of music because of the culture or the artists' beliefs is totally illogical and ignorant. It's not taste in music; it's writing off music without even hearing it. It's kind of like those idiots who say that they hate Fifty Shades Of Grey because they read in the news that it was sexist, without even reading it first. Much of music is about the artist attempting to enunciate and portray their emotions and beliefs to the listener. Disagreeing with a violently portrayed belief is fine, but covering your ears and then generalising it to all music made by those with that belief is ignorant, and OP's post implied that pretty strongly.

You do know that satanism isn't all about sacrificing puppies and destroying things, right? I don't subscribe to the belief (or indeed any belief), but at least read up on it before dismissing it all as Christian hating putridity.

Irregardless that's his choice and you are nobody to call him dense. Yes some of the bands with lyrics like that happen to have some pretty good music to stand on, but if you don't agree with them then there is little chance you are going to be able to enjoy the music, let alone wish to try playing it. I personally don't agree with marmistrz's choice either, but I'm not going to insult him for it.

But with much black metal the lyrics are often difficult to understand. It's writing off music without even hearing it. It's kind of like those idiots who say that they hate Fifty Shades Of Grey because they read in the news that it was sexist, without even reading it first. Much of music is about the artist attempting to enunciate and portray their emotions and beliefs to the listener. Disagreeing with a violently portrayed belief is fine, but covering your ears and then generalising it to all music made by those with that belief is ignorant, and OP's post implied that pretty strongly. I disagree with Varg's beliefs, but that doesn't stop me listening to Burzum.

And everyone is free to call anyone whatever they wish. I consider him to be ignorant/dense for refusing to listen to music without hearing it, and thus I referred to him as such.

From what I picked up from the OP, it was the ones directly related satanism/anti-Christian that he didn't want suggestions for in the first place; which is fine if that's what he wants. Not all metal bands are about satanism and/or openly encourage it so it's not really that big of deal. Yes, I think it cuts down on the available groups, but doesn't eliminate them completely. The problem is, I think, that maybe he didn't know that and you go and attack him for being ignorant right away instead of giving examples as to why he should reconsider or examples of bands that might better suit what he is looking for. The biggest problem on this forum is that rather than help correct somebody's misguided thought process, people want to jump all over the chance to slander/insult the person.

Then the people who are ignorant should probably think a little harder about things before they post.

And again, if you don't know that you're misguided, then you wouldn't see the need to look further into it. It's a simple mistake that doesn't really warrant any animosity.

If you don't know, then the least you can do is look for evidence for your opinion before speaking it. Bring evidence to an otherwise unsupported opinion.

It's not really an opinion though; he doesn't like anti-christian lyrics. That's just a preference. It doesn't really require any evidence to support it.

But I suppose this is just where we differ then.

One of the bass parts I had the toughest time learning is in Rime of the Ancient Mariner (not the slow bass part, or the better part after that...it's more the bridge of the song, rather. It is a long song, and I am having trouble describing the part I mean. WOW! It is tough. It is before the narrative and after "She lets him live, her chosen one."
