Anthems or ambiance, these are the tones that rattle your bones.

no one where i live likes metal. they all like rap and hip hop. i love metal not for the vocals but for the guitar and drums! some of the bands have like the best guitarists in my opinion, i play a little guitar every now and then but i only dream of playing like shadowsfall and other bands.

here is my favorite shadows fall song

the light that blinds (no video, just music)

ANTERIOR ... theyre a new band, not big at all you probably havent heard of them or wont hear of them.





another good song is silent divide... check it out on myspace or something but do me a favor and listen to those 4 songs... if you like 6-7 minute long songs... with great metal riffs and 2 minute long kick ass solos with arpeggios... then anterior you will love

I dont think what I listen to is considered metal but I definately dont listen to rap or hip hop. Rob Zombie is among my favorites along with Korn, Marylin Manson, old Metallica, ect... Mostly everyone around here listens to rap, hip hop or country.

38-year-old punker right here. I listen to a lot of different styles of music. David Bowie, The Cars, The Pixies to Linkin Park, Toadies, and my favorite...Rancid. I'll listen to classic rock too, anything that rocks. My ipod has 19 days worth of eclectic music.

OK, not going to be popular here, but I hate metal, rap and hip hop too. I just find metal grating, harsh, and noisy. I do however love good, clean, guitar. If you're willing to listen to something a little different try these out. Loud is good. You can listen to these loud without distortion. Of course you may already be familiar with and hate this. If so that's cool too. Each to his or her own.

Brian Setzer One of the cleanest guitar players I've ever heard. Each note sharp and articulated irrespective of how fast he plays:



Dire Straits (odd videos from the 80's)





And just to prove that old guitar players never die:





Actually the sound on these last two isn't very good. One is over 30 years old the other is probably cell phone video, but there are remastered CD's available that sound as good as they did, well way back when it was new music. :)

Ephel Duath is an insane jazz-metal band from Italy. Their only good album though is Painter's Palette, check it if you can find it. I know they're on myspace.

The guy in the shop next to mine (Mirror Mike, since he does glasswork and original mirror designs) was a friend of Dimebag Dave from Pantera and is really into metal. While I enjoyed my share of metal when I was younger, I've since taken a stronger interest in blues. This past weekend, Mirror Mike hosted a Pantera tribute band called Status Hate at one of the local bars. I really didn't expect much, but they really tore it up! Seeing these guys play, and they sounded as close to Pantera as you can get, reminded me how much energy metal musicians put into their work. The drumwork, especially, is unparalled in any other genre (Sorry, Gene Krupa). :twisted:

im not a big fan of pantera but that is pretty awesome. sounds like a good band, metal is pretty different from other music.

just remembered a nother band, its called dragonforce, not really heavy but great sound.
