So Pit, what do you think about the understanding of music/metal? Since metal is regarded as horrible noise by most of todays people, what do you think would happen if you timetravel back to past and show some people a metal recording?
Do you think, somebody would actually like it, or do you have to develop an understanding for music?

Let's say the song of our choice is a nice Thrash metal song by Testament, nothing too overly aggressive or crazy and with a decent amount of skill to it.
So no extreme brutal emocrabprogmathcore ****

If you play Dragonforce they would experience it as an even more epic story than Beowulf.

No Electricity... They would be only used to hearing naturally resonant instruments and be totally blown away. I think they would still like the notes though. Formation of Damnation kicks soo much ass.
#9
I think they'd consider it to be very blasphemous really..especially if you play "The Devils Note".
#11
They'd probably dislike it, as most people dislike anything completely musically alien to them. Also, they would hate anything at all anti-Christian, so that wouldn't be a good idea.
#12
By 'show them a recording', you mean just let them see a CD?
Cos they'd probably be all like "oooo, shiny".
#13
They'd probably think you're a descendant of Satan and burn you before you can show them

Bear in mind that, seeing as metal would be totally new to them, it wouldn't have the stereotypical "Anti-religious" undertones it has now. Except of course for songs with anti-religious themes.

?
No, but seriously, probably this.
Quote by korinaflyingv
Thrash metal uses lots of augmented 4th intervals, which were considered evil at the time. So no, they probably wouldn't like it.

You mean Tritones? I don't know intervals in English, sorry, but I'm guessing 4th is the same as a Quarta.

You'd have to ween them into metal... I wouldn't have a clue how though with all those diminshed 5ths (or augmented 4ths depending on your outlook in life)

If I stay too quiet
I can hear her walking by
Death cold air is moving
Like the touch of her hand

pienentynyt enkeli, ottaa minuun,
johtaa minut tämän arvokkaan valoa,
ja ikuiseen pimeyteen.

They would go...

There's men, underground
Who have never seen the sun
But they really know how to party
Little men from underground
Who have never seen the sun
But the really know how to party


The rise their wooden pints and they yoik and sing
And they fight and dance 'till the morning

Tables full, reindeer meat
And the camp fire shines and the brick walls are full candles
Tables full, wooden pints
They don't care about their sins
They just wanna get drunk and party


Long war is now past
Only good men have lasted
They need women, meat, beer and rom
Fight battle full of blood no thoughts about god they just slaughtered killed and tormented
If You See Me Posting In The Pit HIT ME.

I'm quite certain they'd call withcraft on you as soon as they heard the distorted guitars. They wouldn't even need to hear a tritone, they'd automatically think those were the grunts and shrieks of Satan himself.

No, that's not right. For you see, in a Lydian mode you have the tritone with an augmented 4th while also having a perfect 5th. As for the Locrian mode, for example, you have a diminished 5th as the tritone while having a perfect 4th.

/pedantic

But I don't usually give a rat's ass if it's an augmented 4th or a diminished 5th, either. I just go ahead and call it a tritone.

I'd play them some Deicide, give them a lyric sheet. They're so shit they'd probably ignore that it's vaguely Satanic and just have a laugh. And then I'd shag Joan of Arc.

Anyone would say you'll burn in hell (that's a good thing for death metalheads... right?) and burn you.

Vikings would love it. For real.

A lot of people think vikings would be into viking metal but they'd probably really just go, "Våt ees thees? Vere åre min hørns and min pipes?"
