We're all familiar with the typical "annoying 14yo metalhead," the "sensitive highschool kid with the acoustic that gets all the girls," the "Nirvana noob," but what are some others that get on your nerves you don't typically hear about?

For me:


The Psyopus-fan (or similar band):

You don't know what I mean from description, but you've seen these fags. They start early as metalshredfags but then start getting obsessed with obscure techniques and music, getting into bands like Psyopus, Chon, Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.

They favor technicality over music or tasteful songwriting. If the song isn't all senseless wanking on Dissonant or 9th chords, it's not music to them. God forbid you play a sus2 in their presence, they'll rip you a new asshole.

Fun thing: try to ask them about guitar tone- they don't know what the fuck it is


The "I've grown out of metal" guy:

Yeah yeah, I was was at this point at once. Of course, thankfully I at least accepted my influence was too metal-oriented to play anything else without sounding like a douche.

These are the guys who try to ditch metal and rock for a better self image, and try to learn either blues, jazz, fusion, classical guitar, bluegrass, etc. Regardless of how hard they try their metal influence bleeds through and everything they play just sounds like a complete joke.

As big of a joke as Metallica attempting a country track on Load with "Mama Said," probably the best comparison I can make.

I think the second "stereotype" isn't actually that bad. I mean tastes just change over time.

I pretty much grew out of alot of the shred metal stuff i used to play and write. Now I pretty much play alt rock and technical u2 type stuff so it can happen.

I hate both of these crowds, yet I exist right on the fringes of both with my love of prog-rock.

But seriously, I still have yet to meet a guitarist in this town younger than I am whose idea of tone is anything more than "make it as distorted/"indie" as possible".

One annoying stereotype for me is people who learn a shitload of music theory but never bother much with actually learning techniques.

They ramble about how much theory they know and how that helps them play, but then they play bland and boring chord progressions and nothing else.

Also, those indie bands who play 3 note solos and think that adding vibrato to each note is going to make it impressive.

These probably aren't even stereotypes, just things I hate but whatever.

The "I've grown out of metal" guy: Reminds of Michael Akerfeldt. Before you start white knighting him. Heritage sucks balls, go play some real progressive death metal. It seems like they purposely avoid death grows these days. He even said in one interview on UG front page, that he hasn't heard any decent metal since the current decade. Bitch please, I love your music and I'm a fan but you're not looking hard enough.

The "I record stuff" guy. Spends like a month in the studio only to upload a single crappy track to soundcloud.

I knew plenty of these in high school.

If you're past the age of 16 and have played the guitar for more than 3 years and you AREN'T the "I've grown out of metal" guy then you're an idiot.


My most hated are the "I don't need theory I play with feel" guys.

They just got tired of that sound. It shows in Watershed.

The '' I mostly play prog'' guy who only plays on the chromatic scale with lots of delay and cheap multi effects.

Maybe not that common, but I know a few of them.

Haha yes very true. I forgot to mention that they talk about it nonstop before even having done anything. Like Murderface's Planet Piss.

The expression shred seems now to be used for anyone playin guitar over 70bpm

Ftfy

As if changing your musical tastes makes you more mature. People change their tastes all the time for so many different reasons-- I don't know why anyone needs to actively promote or try to convince others that they have grown as a person based on what they listen to.

Pretty much me until I can get a good lineup.


But hey, better to have your material fully recorded ahead of time that way when you bring in shitty members who are overly insistent on writing can flat out CAN'T, they can't change shit or insist on making it simpler so they can play it.

That to me is how a lot of bands fail, they have one weak link in the chain that they don't have the heart to kick out because of friendship but is slowing and manipulating the bands progress and sound to an absolute crawl due to his lack of writing and/or playing skills.

That's why I've been careful to not even hire people that come off like that from the start.


Quote by Burgery

Akerfeldt could never really growl that good. Or play guitar that well. He's probably one of the most overall mediocre and overrated musicians in modern metal with everything he does. Writing, playing, and singing.

I have no idea why so many kiss his ass in every last aspect with everything he does and act like he's the second coming of Christ to metal.

I love it when 16 year old metalfags rip on Heritage because of it's lack of screaming.

Don't worry, soon will come the day when you grow up and learn to appreciate music other than that that's nothing but screaming and growling and distorted shitty chug riffs. Musical closed-mindedness doesn't last for all of us at least.
