Heavy Metal

I dont know how far its true…..
Here goes my Opinion anyways…….
Whats so gr8 bout Heavy Metal and Rock Music??

Dis is one question which almost all classical music lovers hav on their minds wen they hear sumthing which is Noise to their ears. Well deres more dan one reason which makes it gr8.D amazin Lyrics, D gr8 virtuosc performances by the artists on their respectiv instruments, d energy dat they provide and much more.For many,its d vehicle of d Satan.For d oders, its d celebration of life.

Lyrics

How many of d metal haters out there hav ever bothered to take a look at d lyrics of these amazin music pieces??
Heres a few lines frm Metallica’s song – No Leaf Clover

“Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Was just a freight train coming your way”

How many of U out dere hav had dis feeling?
I bet dat an overwhelming majority of d ppl wud hav had dis feeling. To feel that everything was goin ur way till d u realise dat wat went up has to come down.

Wen Brian Adams sings d line ” Those were d Best days of my Lyf” U feel it. Can a classical music piece drive d same kind of energy into d lyrics?

Anoder feeling dat all mus hav endured is missin ur dear one.
No song in history sums it up better than Nothing Else Matters

“So close no matter how far, COuldnt be much more from the heart”

Anoder set of magical lines dat come to mind is Pink FLoyd’s Time

“You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.”

“Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines “

Dese rock also seem to hav d ability to foresee their future in d lyrics….

Syd Barrett ( d man behind d formation of Pink Floyd, sadly though, he had to be removed frm d band due to an LSD addiction which was affecting d band) wrote bout himself in d song Shine on You Crazy Diamond

So did James Hetfield( Metallica ) about addictions in Master of Puppets. He later had to undergo rehab for alcoholism , an addiction which came along as a way to keep himself warm in Siberia during a hunting tour.

Virtuosic Performances

Each rock artist is unique in his way. And each band tries to bring in a unique attribute to their brand of music. This shows dat rock music is a domain where Improvisation is d name of d game and mere imitations dont stand a chance. And dis is one arena where d rock artists pay mutual respect by playing each oders’ songs under the tag of COVER songs.
Dere hav been instances of Bands passing unpleasant remarks bout oder bands, but then it just shows d competitive spirit that drives dese artists for more.

D riffs and solos dat d rock artistes create are just out of d classical music textbooks. Only dat these r heavier, louder and faster.Again a pointer dat heavy metal is not NOISE after all. Its a variation of classical music. So in fact , rock music is a gr8 advertisement for CLASSICAL MUSIC!!! any takers for dis??!!

Again , I m not saying that Classical music is bad….

Ppl hav often dismissed heavy metal as repulsive and driving d youth to alcoholism and drugs. Well dat came as a result of blind hero worship. D same has occurred not only wid Heavy metal but Cinema as well. Dere can b a way to enjoy Rock music even without dese addictions.Just enjoy d Music….Its as simple as that.

No offence to classical music lovers or d critics of Heavy Metal but just giv dis a thought….

” When you criticise somthing or put the blame on sumthing, just dont do it blindly, also try to find d positve sides.”

As with everything, ROCK MUSIC ALSO HAS ITS BRIGHTER SIDE

    I cudn’t agree more with shreko here,adrenaline pumping: its the kinda feeling u get when you hear the grunge of the distortion guitar, the lyrics which deal with much more than petty earthly issues, Metal’s more about stage performance, the riffs, the solos, the pounding bass/double bass and the heavy vocals..its evil..to the core..the best possible remedy to kick up ur spirits wen ur down or angry..thats metal..
