In one band I play metal in the style of Ensiferum, Amon Amarth, In Flames (Jester Race-era) and a touch of Iron Maiden.

In the other band I play bass and we're basically... (old) Slayer meets Angelcorpse meets Dissection meets Emperor meets Venom meets 80's Thrash.

In my free time I just experiment.

Sorry man, that just has me laughing so hard. Luckily grunge has finally died in Seattle, despite the local radio station's desperate efforts to play Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and a couple other crappy grunge bands 12 hours out of the day.

I'm also into the heavy stuff. The olderI get, the heavier I like it.

I'm playing a unique blend of Modern, Hardcore, Punk, Progressive & Funk. I also am one of the Worship Leaders at my church. I lead a high energy worship service called "The Altarnator". We break out the heavy artillery for this event. We have a saying around our place. "Worship the Lord our God in the highest . . . volume possible"

But when doing something my way, I'm a cross between punk (older), sludge, and thrash.

Jazz and fusion.


Hate metal, punk and especially (c)rap! In general, things I percieve as "obnoxious" without a cause other than to make money.

I like classical, but don't play it.

I like jazzier and classical based rock, like Yes, ELP, Allman Brothers, Santana, PFM, Focus.

What's with the anti-grunge noise?

Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots (from L.A. ...I know but they were the real deal), Mudhoney, Screaming Trees. These were some of my favorite bands in college. I still love 'em. (Good times, good times...)

C'mon...ya gotta give it up for the 90s Seattle scene. When the top of the heap was Poison?... Gawd, something had to change. Musically, I think that's where we are right now. There's a huge void. Waiting for the next BIG thing.

Maybe it's kewl to give 'em the finger...I guess that's youth...gotta give the finger to something, but (and you can take this to the bank) in another 10 years it'll be kewl again like 80s Hair Rock is now. Too old for kewl...too young for retro. What's a grungester to do?

Yet I digress...

I like to play anything Grunge, I attempt Dire Straits (Knopfler is awesome), Basically anything with an Alt sound. Anything from the previously mentioned to Sugar, Pixies, Dig, Folk Implosion, Soul Coughing, Foo Fighters, old Pretenders, Devo, etc.. While still trying to find my own sound.

(By the way, I'm new here... "Howdy Y'all")

Cheers,
Gunhedd

Welcome Gunhedd, yeh I'm trying to learn some Dire Straights stuff (BTW check out http://forum.grailtone.com/viewtopic.php?t=491 about what I had to say about his concert - in short, I loved it :) ) (I even went out and baught a capo last week), it appears that I can't sit down and learn stuff off unoficial tabs (I'm sadly unable to read notes, keep wanting to learn but just can't find the spare time to, because as you probably know it's hard to stay away from just playing stuff). Anyway, I've already tried buying Money for Nothing song book but they were out of it on multiple occasions :? . I currently only have Metallica i.e. Black Album, Master of Puppets and And Justice for All. So I am mainly learning that stuff. But i'm currently planning on buying Megadeth's Rust in Peace and actually went out to buy it today but they didn't have it :? (and they claim to have the biggest selection of songbooks in Melbourne :shock:) , I would order it but the sale would have ended by the time that it came in, and I didn't have enough money to buy Hendrix stuff, which I have also been getting into recently. But I've also not been able to keep myself away from learning other stuff for which I haven't got the official stuff for like: Another Brick In The Wall Part 2 (love that solo), attempting to play some malsmteen (crying seems to be the slowest of his songs, so I've been trying that) and heaps of other stuff like Sabbath, Zepps, Guns N' Roses etc... my biggest problem is learning a song from start to finish i usually learn the solos and just leave the songs at that, and if the solo is too fast then i just try to play in time at least. I've only managed to learn 4 or 5 full songs. Well I reckon thats enough :P , I can go on sometimes, sorry bout that...
I've got a need
A need to Boogie!!!

thats really generalizing, sure there are lots of metal acts that are out to make money but there all the ones all over MTV (which i dont even class them as metal anyway). but you cant say bands like metallica started because they were money hungry.
they were broke even through there first three albums but kept on going because they had a passion. if they were after money they would of quit and gotten jobs.



as for (c)rap i cant really stand up for it, but im sure there not all just after $$$$. some people just love different styles of music
