ok im this p***** with metal music im actually gona make a thread asking why metal musician/songwriters are so sad.

let me give you a example : papa roach/slipknot/slayer

they are all talking about being antichrists/death s*** like that

im a indie fan oasis born and bred and these lyrics disgust me : Cut my life into pieces
I've reached my last resort, suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a **** if I cut my arms bleeding


thats just a intro

cult is even worse ... you dont need to say all that stuff .... why cant they just be happy ffs ... its so sad

my question is why do bands like this say stuff like that and cant they be a little happy surely?

No, Stranglehold was right. His answer is the best you will ever get.

I can name so much fun metal.

I can name so much angry metal.

I can name so much evil metal.

I can name so much metaphysical metal.

I can name so much *insert ANYTHING here* metal.

Every time I visit this forum as of late, threads like this remind me why I last signed off.

I love metal, I have written violent songs before, but at the same time I'm the nicest happiest guy you'll ever meet.


You gonna get flaaaaaaamed.

Not all metal bands talks about death. Listen to power metal and you will found different lyrics.
#13

The short, somewhat kind version of what alot of people are going to "tell" you. You need to be a little more open minded, and do some research before you post a thread like this

Okay, don't listen to metal, go back to your rock forum. Only men allowed here.

Also, Papa Roach and Slipknot or not metal.

Oasis depresses anyone by sucking horribly

I have decided that you are a giant tool that doesn't understand the simplest elements of metal

Please go stick a pencil up your nose

this thread is utterly idiotic. The reason is that there's more to life than happiness and the fact that art is a reflection/expression of LIFE not happiness. Art isn't created to be happy and there're far more (and far more powerful) emotions than joy. Metal is about the darker side of the spectrum. if that doesn't appeal to you, move on. the fact that the band write about negative topics doesn't mean that they're themselves negative people.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.
