What is the appeal of the screaming? Can you understand what they're saying?

Serious questions, no sarcasm intended.

It's power Ehren... you either get it or you don't. Alot of times you don't want to know what they are saying... especially the type bands that I like the most. Most of these bands above, are what I consider to be prog-pop-metal bands. The only ones I can really stomach are Beneath The Buried And Me, who are awesome, and maybe The Black Dahlia Murder and Mastodon. Chase and I have been over this 100 times.

Anyways, bands that are similar to (but IMO better than) PD are:

Arch Enemy
DevilDriver
Strapping Young Lad (and anything Devin Townsend)
Biomechanical
Symphony X
In Flames
Norther

I'm really big into Winds of Plague. If you've heard them before then you already know Here is one of my favorite songs by them. Its off their first album, which is good, but their second album is AWESOME!

I understand what Ehren is asking about. The screaming does take getting used to, and the more you listen to this genre of music the more you understand it and learn it. For me, the vocalist makes it or breaks it. I've heard a lot of great bands but when the singer starts singing, it ruins it for me. The screaming has to fit the music theyre singing to or it just doesnt flow well for me. The screaming is a release of pain, energy, whatever that to the same degree matches the raw energy of the music theyre singing to. When you think about it, what other type of singing could you really do to some heavy, raw music? I'm more into melodic type metal bands that have a lot of emotion and feeling in both the lyrics and music being played. I'm a huge fan of deftones and of bands like the used, whose both newest albums are great.

I was thinking and a good song for Ehren to check out, that could introduce them to screaming with emotion, would be "meeting again for the first time" by Poison the Well. Great song. I couldn't find a youtube video of it that wasn't live. My favrite song by them comes from their second album. Years ago when I was 18-19 all I listened to was Deftones and this band. It was a luck of fate that I got to see them play together at the Norva one summer. I'd honestly say PTW put on a little better show than Deftones. If you're curious, 'poisoning the well' means to influence someone's thoughts before they have a chance to make their own. I was in a psychology class years back in college and the teacher was talking about poisoning the well and I was like, so thats what it means.

bad azz cover
















Pit:
There is no way to put it into words(about screaming- vocals in medal) what makes it appealing. My advice if you are seriously curious-- Go see a Top notch band live. You'll know almost instantly if it is for you. Metal is a way of life 99% of the important things in my life revolve around Metal.

My favorite metal band would have to be DevilDriver. They are just plain awesome! IMO their best album is "The Last Kind Words" but their newest album "Pray For Villains" is pretty good too. The drummer is just insane!

I really like some of the metal I've heard, just not most of the stuff listed in this thread I guess. I absolutely get the power and emotion behind it, but the screaming just doesn't do it for me. I like some of the more melodic, or even theatrical stuff. I like Dethklok, Lordi, that kinda stuff. I don't know if you guys think they suck or if they're kind of in a different sub-category in the metal world or what. Metalocalypse is good sh!t.

Brad is going to murder me for this comparison, but the real heavy stuff reminds me a lot of hip hop in some ways. People either get it or they don't. A lot of people who don't "get" metal would say "anyone can just scream into a microphone or wail on drums or a guitar". But a true fan can tell the good from the bad a mile away. Same for rap music. Some people think anyone can rap, or anyone can produce a good track, but again, a saavy listener can spot the trash.

I can agree with the rap and metal comparison. I like the really hard, gangster type rap. Just like I enjoy the heavier type metal/hard rock. Both are just full of energy and really up beat. Dethklok is pretty awesome, I would also agree. They have a lot of good songs and its all produced by one guy. Pretty amazing that one man can produce music that in some cases is better than "real" bands.

Ehren you would probably like the band Dope or the band Flaw. They are metal,kinda, but also have a lot of softer stuff. Look up

Dope-"sing"
Dope-"another day goes by"
Flaw-"best i am"

Really anything by Dope f*ckin rocks tho!

Seems like the guy is talented Mark, and he has some good ideas, but the production (I know it was done in a bedroom but it could have been much better with what he had tracked) needs to be tweaked. The guitars and bass and keys kind of glob together in the middle because they aren't EQ'd or panned correctly. Then other songs the guitar is super bright and has that cheesy "plugged through a metal distortion pedal straight to the board" sound. Good drum-machine programming and EQ on most songs.

But overall, for what it is, I can dig it.... Kind of like Korn meets Parliament meets Pink Floyd.

Hell yeah, they always put on an awesome show. I've seen them three times in Peoria and four times in Milwaukee. The crowd is insane when the play in Peoria. It's their home town. The last time I seen them the lineup was Sevendust, 10 Years and American Head Charge. Two days after that concert the guitarist of American Head Charge died of a accidental overdose of cold medicine, or so they say.

Anyway, this is my favorite AHC song.

LOG is up there. Saw em withShadows Fall a few years back. Before the Sacrament album. L.O.G. Killadelphia is a great DVD..

Korn is one of the best out there with the exception of a couple albums.. .Seen em live about 6 times..

Already mentioned Mushroomhead and Killswitch..


Not a fan of Megadeath although I respect their massive following and body of work.. Not a fan of Dave's Vocals. Reminds me of Axel Rose. Sounds like they are choking on a dIck..






one of the first bands (before Korn) whio startedthe new Metal/rap style of metal.



A perfect circle
Tool
Sevendust
Spineshank -Strictly Diesel (great album)
Children Of Bodom
OPETH
OTEP
Slipknot
Coal Chamber
DevilDriver
White Zombie
Rage against The Machine

few more to look into

Holy shiznit I havnt heard old KoRn in a long time. I used to LOOOOOVE some korn, thats for sure. Even had long hair in high school and keep it in braids like Head. Their first album is their best by far. I've also been a huge fan of deftones for the longest time. afanofdeftones is my user name most everywhere online.

Its been a couple years since ive been to a show,but ive seen just about every band possible. Alice in chains was the one i regret never seeing. I remember seeing the deftones in this little pavilon at are local comunity college back in 92 or 93. Maybe earlier than that,loved them ever since. Im more of a fan of older stuff,well earlier stuff i should say. Some newer stuff i can get into ,some not so much. Log killadelphia is sick! Love those guys.

I agree, the new korn does sound pretty good. I think I've heard two singles and both sounded ok. I definitely want to pick up their first album again. I might get their new one. Also about the other post, I like the first 2 albums from bullet for my Valentine. I got their new album and IMO it sucks hardcore.

so... please, no more vids lol. text is enough

going back to the origin on this.. i decided to go into depth on Parkway Drive and see what their sound started like. no lie, i enjoy their first album more so than any of the main releases. i implore you to give it a listen. just has such pure, natural, unadulterated sound to it not smothered by a studio. i almost shed a tear. wish more albums sounded like it.

it's widely available through torrent sites. a quick PD search in nowtorrents will yield results. album is titled "Don't Close Your Eyes" (probably find the special edition). and of course if you enjoy it i ask you support them financially on their endeavor to rock your f*cking socks off.
