So im jamming with these heavy metal/thrash guys and we are gonna start with covers. Im good for megadeth/metallica/slayer etc, but they say they are into bullet for my valentine and trivium and ive not heard a lot of their stuff.

What would be the best songs to cover from them?
#3
Trivium have some great songs for covering, especially with there dual guitar harmonies and solos. try 'entrance of the conflagration', 'anthem (we are the fire)', and 'pull harder on the strings of your martyr.'

BFMV are similar in that way to. there is 'Hand of Blood', 'tears don't fall', and 'scream aim fire' to name a few.

Stick with what you're good for. My band couldn't convince me to play bullet for my valentine or trivium crap. Try to convince them how much better classic Megadeth is. Or at least play some lamb of god or something.
New Setup:
Epiphone Les Paul Custom (Black SG w/ 3 Hum.)
Peavey Classic 50
EHX Metal Muff
Cry Baby 535Q

What they should do is do an even split: some of theirs, some of his. So play some megadeth aswell as trivium etc.

And for trivium, pull harder/gunshot/dying in are great from ascendancy, entrance is great from the crusade, and insurrection is brilliant from shogun.

from bullet, i would do hand of blood, tears dont fall, suffocating, or waking the demon

What's not to like? Its what influenced those bands. Show them Five Magics or Peace Sells or anything from their first 5 albums.

cover some megadeth.


now, i need to ask a question, why is it that EVERY-FUCKING-ONE plays metal. its ALLLLLLLWAYS metal. always
#22
for BFMV, I think Hand of Blood and Tears Don't Fall would be good picks.

still can't see why they wouldn't want to play Megadeth...I mean, Holy Wars? Symphony of Destruction? Youthanasia? and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Well, if your into thrash, and they are into metalcore, then compromise.

Listen to "Like Light to Flies" By Trivium. It's one of their more thrashy songs, it doesn't have a "soft" part, and the solo and dual guitar parts are phenominal.

Then, make them cover some 'Deth. Maybe try one of the more melodic songs like
"In My Darkest Hour" to get them turned on and then eventually they may go for some Peace, Tornado, Wars, or even some Skin o My Teeth type stuff.

Nobody around here plays Metal. You're lucky if you hear a band that isn't trying to be the next quirky pop-punk band.
