Hey, ive been playing guitar for quite some time now and have just started to get into metal music. I really like bands like white chapel, burn the masses, cannibal corpse and such. Can anyone lead me in the direction of like some beginning metal songs to play or some riffs to pick up on?

Thanks!

What a coincidence, because you see I've just stared out in metal aswell. My fav bands are Asking Alexandria, Between The Buried And Me, and other kinda proggy stuff like that. Any recs?

I prefer the heavier varieties of metal like plutonium or uranium, seriously though check out Job For A Cowboy I love those ****ing guys oh and The Faceless they will melt your face too.

By melt your face, surely you mean make you vomit.


They were awesome before anyone knew about them, but now they're all pop now.

Emasculate yourself and listen to every Neige project possible
I can take a road that'll see me through.

I recommend Metallica to get started. They have a lot of riffs that range from easy to more difficult. Then you can move on to more thrash like Megadeth and Slayer. After that you can pretty much go anywhere in metal.

CC: Skull full of maggots, Hammer smashed face.
Death: Zombie Ritual, Crystal Mountain.

Early death metal is quite straightforward and simple, check the first releases of these bands. Morbid Angel are cool as **** too.

But really, you can even practise on Necrophagist or Nile. Just take it slow with each riff, practise with a metronome and persevere.
You'll nail 'em down for sure.

Any of Devin Townsend's music is pretty much the way to go.

I got his album Terria recently and I wasn't to impressed by it

Metal is very much focused on the picking hand. Masturbate a lot.

Metallica from the Black album on are fairly simple as are megadeth songs from countdown to extinction on. also Black Sabbath wrote alot of good, yet simple metal songs. and breakin the law by judas priest. thats what I started with at least.
