my view on music of todays age1/1/09
 
these days metal is not given a second thought with it being seen as demonic satan worshiping blatent noise which has no vocal talent or any talent what so ever.

but i tell you what happens when you put all your emotion behind each and everyword you say? the result is a scream, not sung it is infact screamed


and as for it being called satanist, not all metal is satanist, i will not lie and say no metal is satanist since there is indeed satan worshiping bands in the world but there are also christian metal bands and metal bands that basically represent their own religion and/or beliefs such as NZ metalcore band Antagonist AD has their vocalist as an open vegan and has written a song named "show some heart (go vegan)" which is an example of a metal song not satanist, but still true to the beliefs of part of the band

and then people also view metal as a negative form of music i challenge anyone to find some thing negaitive about the lyrics "rise inside, free your mind, raise your fist to signify we stand in defiance, of hatred and deception, if i stand alone ill fight for you" taken from the song rise inside my metal band Killswitch Engage if first seen the band name may look like a negative band but infact they are one of the most positve metal bands out in the world these days

where any form of rap is seen as a positive form of music? tell me when did speaking bout gang wars, fights,drinking,drugs, sex and murder become something good? and when did standing for your beliefs become some thing satanist? this infact makes no sense what so ever

and as far as talent wise, metal will always be the genre who actually demonstrate any form of abiltity

guitar wise, the riffs and solos have to be mastered and performed everytime, rather then just once by a computer programme then used over and over again

drum wise, to show of drum abilities the faster and harder each drum is hit shows the excellent syncopated skills decent drummers must develop before the start evn considering a band

and vocal wise, to pitch a scream takes alot more skill then speaking fast or pitching a vocal note by singing

so in its entirety metal is the genre that has the most skill, best message in the music takes longer to create and involves the artists themselves rather then someone who will never be creditied

so it is obviously METAL FOR THE WIN

THIS IS FOR ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT DONT KNOW WHAT A BREAKDOWN IS8/23/08
 
The breakdown in the metal and hardcore punk genres is where a band will usually play in half time, giving the feeling of a slower tempo. It is considered by some to be an important element in many songs of these genres and central to many bands, quite a few of which eschew traditional verse-chorus-verse songwriting. When played live, breakdowns are usually responded to by the audience by moshing or hardcore dancing. Vocalists also tend to throw in a single, repeated statement throughout the breakdown, giving those who are not dancing or moshing an opportunity to sing along. Many metalcore bands rely on having memorable breakdowns rather than memorable choruses.

The drums are usually simple with several cymbals and snare on the third beat. The cymbals are usually a china or fast crash with quarter notes or more common, eighth notes. Also common is the use of crash cymbals with quarter notes, or even half notes, to give the music a very heavy, slow feel. The drummer usually follows the rhythm of the guitar on the kick drum. In metal, the guitars play a set of rhythmically oriented riffs, usually on open strings so as to achieve the lowest and heaviest sound for which the guitars are tuned, so the dancers in the audience can respond effectively. Sometimes, these are contrasted with either dissonant chords, such as minor 2nd intervals, or pinch harmonics. These riffs are often accented by the drummer with double kick bass drums that follow the pattern of the guitars. This kind of breakdown can be traced back to the Los Angeles thrash metal band Dark Angel, who's drummer Gene Hoglan first played this kind of rhythmic double bass drums-guitar oriented breakdown on the title track of Dark Angel's second album, Darkness Descends. Gene Hoglan has used this technique, which he calls 'kick triplets', in various bands in which he played since then, and it had become commonly used in Thrash Metal and especially Death Metal, although not always in the same way it is used in Metalcore.

In punk rock, breakdowns tend to be more upbeat, using the floor toms and snares to create a faster, 'rolling' rhythm. This provides audience members with an opportunity to skank, mosh, or circle pit.

freakin crazy dream i had no idea why i had it and i did, freakn7/7/07
 
well the other night i had a dream i spent like $300 on a weddng cake(cause there the giant cakes that are taller then people) and i bought it just for me to eat, freakin crazy and when i woke up that morning i really wanted some cake and chocolate milk, but when did chocolate milk come into this, seriously i have no idea but i really wanted one so before i went into work i bought me one and drank it and god it was freakin.

but now to my question why the hell did i want chocolate milk?"

god it was rugged but unfortunatly i did not get any cake, and apparntly wedding cakes are not the giantest super chocolate cake i thought it to be.


ok i think this is the sort of stuff suposed to be in blogs so here it is!!!!!

kurt cobain's(nirvana) suicide note, damn it he was a god among the living its a shame 1/20/07
 
To Boddah

Speaking from the tongue of an experienced simpleton who obviously would rather be an emasculated, infantile complain-ee. This note should be pretty easy to understand.

All the warnings from the punk rock 101 courses over the years, since my first introduction to the, shall we say, ethics involved with independence and the embracement of your community has proven to be very true. I haven't felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music along with reading and writing for too many years now. I feel guity beyond words about these things.

For example when we're back stage and the lights go out and the manic roar of the crowds begins., it doesn't affect me the way in which it did for Freddie Mercury, who seemed to love, relish in the the love and adoration from the crowd which is something I totally admire and envy. The fact is, I can't fool you, any one of you. It simply isn't fair to you or me. The worst crime I can think of would be to rip people off by faking it and pretending as if I'm having 100% fun. Sometimes I feel as if I should have a punch-in time clock before I walk out on stage. I've tried everything within my power to appreciate it (and I do,God, believe me I do, but it's not enough). I appreciate the fact that I and we have affected and entertained a lot of people. It must be one of those narcissists who only appreciate things when they're gone. I'm too sensitive. I need to be slightly numb in order to regain the enthusiasms I once had as a child.

On our last 3 tours, I've had a much better appreciation for all the people I've known personally, and as fans of our music, but I still can't get over the frustration, the guilt and empathy I have for everyone. There's good in all of us and I think I simply love people too much, so much that it makes me feel too fucking sad. The sad little, sensitive, unappreciative, Pisces, Jesus man. Why don't you just enjoy it? I don't know!

I don't have a goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy... and a daughter who reminds me too much of what i used to be, full of love and joy, kissing every person she meets because everyone is good and will do her no harm. And that terrifies me to the point to where I can barely function. I can't stand the thought of Frances becoming the miserable, self-destructive, death rocker that I've become.

I have it good, very good, and I'm grateful, but since the age of seven, I've become hateful towards all humans in general. Only because it seems so easy for people to get along that have empathy. Only because I love and feel sorry for people too much I guess.

Thank you all from the pit of my burning, nauseous stomach for your letters and concern during the past years. I'm too much of an erratic, moody baby! I don't have the passion anymore, and so remember, it's better to burn out than to fade away.


Peace, love, empathy.

Kurt Cobain
Frances and Courtney, I'll be at your alter.
Please keep going Courtney, for Frances.
For her life, which will be so much happier without me.


I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU!



KURT COBAIN IS AND FOREVER SHALL BE A GOD AMONG ROCK, ITS A SHAME HE FELT HE HAD TO KILL HIMSELF
