Sooooo, it's been a few months since my last post... (In this thread it was 2015 *whistle*) And just thought I would pop in and say "hi!" Mostly I wanted to give all the metalheads a thank you for all the support over the years. My album project was, alas, a no go. We have the songs, (the music, lyrics and charts) just not the people to make it a "thing". It's a shame, I really liked a lot of it. I have since started playing live again in a classic rock/oldies band just to make some money. It's not ideal, but it's cash.

I never had to do the "bar scene" coming up, I went straight from learning my licks to pro... Having to pay my dues this late in life sucks! That and I miss my roadies and techs. lol Lifting my own stuff is the worst.

Welcome back!

I can only empathize. I never even tried to go pro. I just compose & play my enjoyment and for my furry fans. (A.K.A. pets.). An avocation that has probably cost me as much as someone actually trying to go pro and tour, etc.
 

Flexor the Mighty!

I was never a huge Pantera fan, much less HellYeah, but VP had a very distinctive sound in Pantera and was influential on a lot of drummers. RIP.

Welcome aboard!

I don’t know about that track...they spent the first 30 seconds of a 2:40 second clip doing essentially the same riff.

Thank you.

Yeah, same intro riff but the drums behind it add variation.

This one has a few more guitar layers:

A new lesson:

cosmic blackened death metal

Two fine bands I've yet to see mentioned in this thread at all:

Sabaton - songs about historic wars and battles, told from all points of view in fine metal form. They're European but I forget wich country they're from (Sweden?).

Lordi - costumed bangers from Finland who won (!) Eurovision 2006, sing about monsters and ghosts mainly (one of their songs directly inspired an adventure I wrote and ran some years back)

Both bands have numerous albums out - 8 I think for Lordi and I'm not sure how many for Sabaton - and both are, as far as I know, still going.

I’ve been listening to more rock than metal these days...at least in terms of the younger bands. Too many Cookie Monster vox (still), too much droptuning to the point of hiding bass players’ skills or lack thereof.

I've become a big Sabaton fan. It had a large cast change in 2012 and a bit of turnover since then. The earbook version of Heroes has a stupendous For Whom the Bell Tolls cover.

Seems Sabaton got in a wreck the other day. Had to cancel at least one show.

Brightside: maybe they get a song out of it, a la Deep Purple & “Smoke on the Water”.
