Hello UG forums. This is my first post ever on these forums . And i came here for help with my band songs... So my band plays melodic death metal and dark metal and i need help with the dark metal side. How i can make the music sad and melancholic? Is there a special trick or something? (And if this is at wrong forum section please tell me, i have no idea in UG forums )

Hmm...try using scales/modes that sound sad-ish, e.g. Minor scale (aeolian mode), phrygian mode, etc.

Also, for Metal, use dissonant harmonies, i.e. Tritones. Use mainly chords in the lower part of the fretboard, and even Drop tunings (drop the 6th a tone down from the rest) or lower tunings. It gives the guitar an ominous sound.
