Why HAVEN'T I heard about these guys?

I was just thinking of fresh meat for me to look up. Trivium is my favorite band and I remembered AA toured with them for Unholy Alliance so I checked them out.


THEIR RIFFS ARE BETTER THAN SEX.

I was ecstatic about their guitar work. Their vocals are great for their genre.

I've only REALLY listened to thoroughly, Cry of the Black Birds and Runes to My Memory.

My only question is do they not do solos?

Cry of the Black Birds and Runes to My Memory had no solos that I heard.

On average, 2-3 an album.

And, you sound like an idiotic fanboy. Please stop with that kind of immature "their riffs are better than sex" type thing.

I concur, Slay.

It's pretty obvious that you just got into metal if a) you think AA's riffs are better than sex, or b) Trivium is your favorite band.

Well you'll have to learn to take the criticism if you want to post in the metal forum kid, there be monsters about! As for Amon Amarth, I like them, they're a good band, not much else.

That's all well and good, but there's much better out there than both of those bands [Check the rec thread, dont ask here]. [Seriously, Trivium doesnt do anything that hasnt already been done 20 years ago, by better bands.]

And chromeguitars, AA play in B standard, not drop B.

But really. I don't understand why you guys have to come in here and start flaming him. I used to be apathetic about it, but now it really bothers me.

Uh, if your goal is to just play the main riff, you can move all the notes down a string- so instead of 12-14-17 on the ADG strings [EAD in b standard] just play it on the EAD strings.

Actually, you can do that for the whole song, except for the pedal Bs at the beginning.

The 2-3 are highly orgasmic. Trust me, it makes the anticipation for them so much better. Which is why I loved Twilight of the Thunder God. The solos were dispersed across the whole album, so when they came out....BOOM!

Oh, and age means nothing in the field of maturity, just so you know. My nephew is more mature than I am, and he's 12.

too many solos get boring and unpredictable.

Hi there, seeing as your favorite band is Trivium you must be new to metal.
We are a dignified community here on the metal forums.

We keep a tight shift around here asfar as musical knowledge goes.

^Yeah, I have all of the albums too. Haven't listened to them in awhile though, mainly just played through Twilight of the Thunder God lately.

Versus The World is great walking, running, fukking, biking, exercise music in general. Hell, it's in the name man.

Maybe it was just the tabs that I had, but AFAIK AA doesn't play in proper B standard, but more like 7 string B standard on a 6 string (tabs I had had a G string instead of an F# string like there should be). My guitar's no longer in B though, so I don't know. Meh.

Also get the classic album, Once Sent From the Golden Hall.

I would rather chew broken glass that listen to this band for more than 5 minutes.
I've met scene kids with more variation than these guys.


no comment, seeing as you also hated Solitude Aeturnus vocals

true enough about variation, but that's not what they're here for, really. If I want variation I'll put on an Arcturus cd or start playing with a clown's genitalia; that bound to produce some variation, surely...

Good? Yes
Better than Trivium? Definitely (sp?)
Better than sex? Would say that. Their riffs are good for a 5-minute headbang.

On stage they are pretty awesome though ( I think they're coming to Spain in the near future, will have to go and see them)

As for solos, they do a few, couldn't tell you which songs though. But f**k the solos, just sit back and enjoy the riffage.

tuning elitism is ghey

Baha. Screw tunings. I never bother to tune my guitar to different tunings, I just play songs a few intervals higher/lower than they should be.

I even have my (licensed, lol) floyd rose blocked, so I don't have an excuse any more.
