I'm 60,so music from the 70's and 80's were a big thing for me but I never really got into 'metal'.

Given the choice, I'd take ABBA instead biggrin

Well, not everybody then got into metal at first listen...

When I was around 13, I bought my first single which was from the Bee Gees (A, a, a, a, staying alive, staying alive) biggrin It was right when Saturday Night Fever, Grease hit the big screen, so it was what got airplay the most. But right around when I hit 15 I discovered KISS, and there albums Destroyer and KISS Alive II and got converted to rock/metal.

Re: The Metal Years - 07/25/20 02:39 PM

I then moved to Angel...

If you turn the cover upside down, there name reads the same biggrin



Then Aerosmith hit me hard...



and some melodic bands in between till I hit Black Sabbath to become one of my faves till Rush came along...



Thus my nick (alias)...



Now days the list is VERY long, with other multeity´s in there.

Yes, you couldnt go to all the concerts at the time, and sometimes you had more fun in the parking lot then inside. Heck we had part-time jobs then LOL!

We also went to those mid-night theaters were we could see shows on the big screen like "The Song Remains The Same" because they were in movie format then.

Huh? Since when is anything from Rush considered to be "Metal"?

Having said that, the line between what is "Metal" and what is "hard rock" is often very blurred.

Iron Maiden is clearly Metal but not so other hard sounding groups like AC/DC.

While I agree with you, but that´s the eternal battle with branding of bands. Even today it´s not quite clear, but if you consider that those are MTV videos then they, as many other media put tags loosely, and sometimes to there own benefit. The music industry has always promoted what they wanted, and taged how they wanted. They even booked bands to lose money on them on purpose. That´s one of the reasons (among alot others) that I quit working in the music biz many years ago.

A example of mis-taged bands is Led Zeppelin. What would you call there style? Rock, Hard Rock, Acid Rock, Prog Rock, Symphonic Rock? winkngrin I bet you get it right, but alot of those music journalist didn´t.

I think High n Dry was there best album. I was 16 when there first album came out (On Through The Night), and I remember saying there were just kids, and they were only two years older then I was biggrin

Definitely one of the youngest band to hit big time in that era (early 80´s), and a very good one too.

Re: The Metal Years - 07/28/20 03:23 AM

ACDC started my metal journey, even though they aren't metal. Angus' guitar work blew my mind and the way him and Bon jelled on stage was awesome. Totally blew the mainstream radio stuff we had to listen in the car as kids in the early '80's out of the water..it's like woah..there is music out there just for me biggrin

Then Iron Maiden which led to Judas Priest and all the British NWOHM bands. I was never big on Led Zep, Sabbath or Deep Purple though, it felt dated although i liked Ozzy on his own. Metallica blew it all apart with thrash along with Megadeth and Slayer. That early stuff was just...woah. Then the hair metal/glam metal era with a bunch of meh to middling one hit wonder stuff like Poison and others, Motley Crue being probably the best of the bunch. Pantera evolving from glam to power/thrash/groove metal was the best thing that came out of that whole stage, those first two albums were fire.


Diamondhead
Raven
Budgie
Thin Lizzy
Saxon
Def Leppard
Exodus
Annihilator
Sepultura

And so many others. Tons of hardcore punk as well, started out with the Pistols and then discovered The Ramones, Dead Kennedys etc Have even delved into some Cannibal Corpse on the death metal side of things amongst other bands. I can't reccommend the lyrics, but the music is wicked biggrin

Parkway Drive
Slipknot, their last album kicks some serious @ss! If you haven't listened to it you are doing yourself a disservice.

Re: The Metal Years - 07/28/20 07:02 AM

I was working in a heavy metal bar when I was 17 as a DJ here in Europe at the time, and had a hard time getting into the death/speed metal bands like Slayer and Venom. It was hard for me to wrap my head around those styles, but I had all the metal heads from the city come up on weekends and request these bands. What would be Thrash wasent out yet, and that took me awhile too, until I saw Metallica for the first time and down in the pit (Mater of Puppets tour). Nobody through a punch, it was all good fun in the pit, and that blew me away! We always used to fight back then LOL: The early Testament and Exodus became some of my favs.

I drew If you want blood, you got it, on the front cover of my notebook in high school biggrin

Re: The Metal Years - 07/28/20 08:22 AM

Metal came slowly to me.

I listened to a little Kiss when I was a teenager, mostly because one of my best friends was heavily into Kiss so we'd put it on at his place. But Queen was my favorite band then (and still is).

Then at University in the early 90s I disovered Metallica, of whom I love the "Black album" the most, but enjoy their earlier 'speed' phase too.
I caught onto Manowar while in the Army.

THen it took a while before I ventured future into Metal with Iron Maiden (again due to friends), and from there I've sunk into it biggrin

I used to visit the record store, look for covers that looked interesting and listened to them. How I caught onto Rhapsody and Blind Guardian.
Nighwish fast became a great favorite. I love their first vocalist, and their third. The second was forgettable. smile

Some of my favorite bands now are:
Iron Maiden - I love their journey into more Progressive Metal
Nightwish
Blind Guardian
Candlemass - Epic Doom Metal.
Opeth - the masters of Progressive Metal
Within Temptation
Borknagar
Sabaton

Some of these bands are the only ones I've explored in their genres.
I dislike a growling vocal, but a couple of bands have done it in ways that I can enjoy it, but mixing clear and growl. Black Metal I've never gotten into, nor see a desire to explore. Their growling turns me off.
Goth Metal (Nighwish, Epica, ++) with a clear female vocal and growling male has long been a favorite genre.

I was living in Florida when I became a metalhead, I say this because we wore high heel square point leather boots, corduroy Levis, and of course concert T´s and basball concert T´s. With the heat that shines on the Florida state, it was like we were nuts to ware that! biggrin

Re: The Metal Years - 07/29/20 02:01 PM

IMO...

Melodically there's some crossover between Metal and Rock, but their themes are different. Rock is very sex heavy (and sometimes with heavy chicks..."Whole Lotta Rosie" smile ), whereas Metal (along with Progressive Rock and Punk) is not.

A good classic Rock song (think "More Than a Feeling", "Hotel California" and "Stairway to Heaven") gives you the warm fuzzies, like when your favorite girl falls asleep on your chest in a naked curled-up sweaty spent mess. Sleep comes quickly and deeply.

OTOH, Metal makes you want to go outside and bust your ass doing yard work.

I'm definitely going to harvest this thread for new songs! tuner
Posted By: PanzerMeyer

Re: The Metal Years - 07/29/20 02:06 PM

Mark, I think your analogy differentiating Metal from Rock is brilliant!! I think I will save your post for future reference. smile


Speaking about themes, one thing that I absolutely LOVE about Iron Maiden is the fact that they would often sing about historical events and they even had a song about Dune (To Tame a Land)!!!!


Me being a hardcore science fiction AND history person, you can easily see the attraction.
Posted By: Red2112

Re: The Metal Years - 07/29/20 05:45 PM

AOR (Adult Oriented Rock) would proper Zep, Bad Co, Foreigner, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Heart and even Fleetwood Mac, to name a few. But, at the same time these bands fall into the Rock theme aswell. I still think all this tagging is a big mess that dosent make much sense for the most part, but hey the media had to put there icecing on the cake somehow.

From there Power and The Glory album (1983)...

Great movie by the way.

Difficult to choose really, as I like them all, but for me, this album was ahead of it´s time, and captures what Rush could achieve. But again, almost all Rush albums are ahead of there time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdlQyNe_9tE

My request to SimHQ for an animated head-banging Smilie.

++++++++++

Unfortunately (musically anyway), I fell in love-at-first-sight with a chick who preferred being serenaded with a Dan Fogelberg song on a beat up acoustic (before my Fender Redondo) than any electric Rock/Metal riffs I was trying to impress her with at the time (1984), affecting my musical tastes in my formative teenage years (although I've always had a "Nothing Else Matters" [- Metallica] softer side). Gotta go with whatever stirs up the volatile cocktail of chemicals in the jello behind your skull. 'Dopamine is a hell of a drug!' biggrin

Re: The Metal Years - 11/02/20 08:01 PM

I stopped trying to decide what is "Metal" and what is simply "hard rock" years ago since there is so much gray area between the two genres. I just listen to the stuff I like and go from there. biggrin

Thanks. And then to complicate matters you have all of those sub-genres of Metal like Doom, Goth, Speed, Death, etc.

Yeah, this popped up on YT search for me (couldn't tell at first if it was supposed to be real or some kind of satire or something)...

DEATH DECLINE - Useless Sacrifice [Brutal Death Metal | Thrash Metal]...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaJ2UHiTa0o

The playing between 3:20 and 4:00 is ok (and makes me think it's for real), but overall definitely not my thing. But neither are many other genres, just different strokes... As a middle-ager I'm glad I like what I do because of the place and state of mind music puts me in. A little classic angst is ok (i.e. Metallica), but I wouldn't want a regular diet of it.

As I'm typing this post, the previous video ended and auto-started this one...

Edifice of Tyranny...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bB-Jq8JmxN0

Nice playing at first, then the weird demon voice returns which makes me think it's all supposed to be serious. Go figure. smile

EDIT: Remove all lyrics (I hesitate to call it singing) and I can dig it...in moderation.

I'd never heard this song before (that I recall) until it was posted by the late Destructus, and remains one of my favorites when I'm feeling like my focus is derailing. Just to me a great motivational tune, and although I listen to the studio version, I love this live version...
