This is the most stupid post I think Ive seen (okay maybe not). Ulique: you are stereotyping metal and its fans as "anti-this and anti-that" and "elitist". Firstly, this is just ridiculous misconception on your part, but secondly, you then say that you are in fact a fan of metal!? Your contradictions are incredible. Also if you have any idea whatsoever about human psychology you should know that people are social animals and ENJOY fitting into a group, this is how humans gain feelings of acceptance etc. So saying that you dont understand this or think that it is 'below' you just shows your on hypocrisy again. On the subject of 'close-mindedness', I have found that the majority of metal fans are some of the most musically open-minded people Ive met. And the fact that you have recognised Mastodon as 'experimental' and Cynic as having fusion influences means you have contradicted yourself again!
So unless you are the most anti-elitist (which you are obviously not from your views in this thread), the most musically diverse, open-minded and unique person on this planet - which i highly doubt you are - SHUT THE **** UP
surely your trainer can tell you how to eat/train to lose the weight.... losing weight is just the same process as gaining weight: Eat more calories than your body uses, you will gain weight. Eat less calories than you use, you will lose weight. I would say **** not eating after seven, keep eating meals at the same times you are now, just have smaller portions. Also, do a hell of a lot more cardio work.
Talented band, I'm not a fan of deathcore at all but I really liked their previous album. The new song sounds alot more proggy... I dont think the direction theyre going is wrong, but 'Now Arise' sounds like a bit of a mess to me; NOTHING REPEATS!! at all lol. I am missing the big melodic choruses of open arms to damnation though...
EDIT: Surely theres a Born of Osiris thread already... I dont think this warranted a new thread...
Ok so this isnt about guitars but it happened in a guitar store.
So i was looking some basses and trying some out, wasnt really planning on buying anything just bored. The sales guy comes over and asks if i need anything i told him not really but asked if i could give the Gretsch drum kit in the middle of the store a go,he said sure but just at that moment this little kid walked up to it and asked if he could try it. he was with his parents and only looked and sounded about 10 so i let him go. he proceded to play a simple rock beat for about 20 minutes followed by a little fill and stopping. his dad asked him what he thought. He replied that he didnt like the way the bass drum sounded and began hitting the floor tom repeatedly. i later realized he was 13 and had apparently been playing for quite a while
NO WAY! I think this is the best story so far guys!!!!!!!!!!
