Jesus, its turning into the IMDB boards here haha.

by the way eliminator, im sorry we turned your thread into what it is. this is a section about our bands and this thread in particular about yours. and im sorry i havent mentioned a single thing about it. loved the music man, in the last couple years ive been getting into as much grind and insane shit as i can. check out a band from my area that just got signed to Nuclear Blast called The Crinn. keep up the good work man! looking forward to some more tunes!


Yea man il check that out, that song we have on our myspace is the first song we wrote so we recorded it, that would be the "noisiest" one out of our set, we try to cover alot of musical sections. There's plenty of melodic passages too as our guitarists are big Explosions in the Sky fans, and also co-ordinated polyrhythm sections. So the material turns out as quite schizophrenic. Sometimes we would write a song to paint a picture from a scene in a film or tv series.

"Noisiest", hmm, where have I heard that before? I called it the same thing and I got bombarded with idiotic comments.

I told you, the guys who play that "noise" are are going for just that, it's all about rebelling against the establishment, and music that use to be considered "hard rock" is now acceptable to the mainstream. The only difference is that this type of garbage will never find it's way to the mainstream because there is no melody or creativity what-so-ever. I don't care how fast one can play, leave that for the solo.

FFS man yes the genre is classed as 'noisecore', and thats the broadest term. Not one part of our music is about 'rebelling against the establishment' , were not a fucking punk band.

Truthfully we / I dont give a fuck about the mainstream because were not making this music to get rich and make it to the mainstream and the front page of shitty Kerrang.

We decided to make this for ourselves, and if people dont like it go fuck, I know plenty of people that do like it. I played in a poppy rock band for ages that was radio friendly and I hated playing the music, so why should I be stuck playing something i hate when I could be playing the style I love and feel comfortable with?

Your saying it has no melody or creativity and we're playing as fast as we can? where the fuck are we doing that? We have plenty of creativity and melody, your judging us on one fucking song!

So let me get this straight...you're mad that "hard rock" is now mainstream? Or are you mad that some people want to "rebel against the establishment?" Some of the best music has been made for the purpose of breaking down barriers.
I highly doubt, however, that these guys are making this music for that purpose. They don't make any claim of it, and you have absolutely no evidence to support your claim of it. Nice job.

And what makes your music or anyone else's any more creative than these guys' music? Come to think of it, who the hell are you to judge what's creative or not?
Oh wait, I forgot for a moment that you were an elitist.

I'm sure the music took time to write, and I'm sure they put a lot of thought into it, which is more than what can be said of mainstream pop and rock music today. So what's not creative about it?

True, I'm not a huge fan of this kind of music, but I'd rather listen to it than half of the shit on mainstream radio today.
Beat on.

Johhnyringo, it's funny you're giving this guy shit for not being creative when you spend the majority of your musical efforts playing other peoples' music.

eliminator.... Keep up the good work. Sorry this thread got jacked because one childish fuckface can't keep his mouth shut.

one thing i've always loved about the dml boards is that it DIDN'T constantly turn in to a flame fest like nearly every other message board on the internet.

Music, in case you didn't know, is melody and rhythm, neither of which was in that garbage.


ive never heard your band(if you even play in one), but from this comment i can already assume you suck ass. eat shit.


I'v heard him play. he sucks

i seriously think i should be the one to put movie soundtracks together! i constantly think of particular scenes that a song could go in. say im listening to converge for example, i cant think of the song name but its on you fail me, and its perfect for a scene where someone is going through a very hard time in their life say someone just died or some really heavy shit just went down and they cant contain their feelings so they just explode in rage/anger/sadness.

i love thinking of things like that while im listening to music and thats awsome that your doing just that.

hey idiot,

no one's talking shit about your shitty cover band, your singer's lame ass leather pants or his pseudo mullet in your 'show us your band' threads.

why?



because there's no point in coming here and being a fucking dick.

if you don't like someone's band, shut your hole.

you didn't even offer constructive criticism. you're just being an asshole for the sole purpose of being an asshole.

here's my take on you, guy: you're bitter and crabby because your shitty cover band can't do better than playing shitty dive bars full of people that pay more attention to their miller high lifes then they do to your butchered covers "tunes."

you're "band" is nothing more than a human jukebox. and a bad one at that.


Music defined in the dictionary says melody with rhythm.

I'm not bitter about anything, especially not over crap like that. I can voice my opinion as can you, besides, I'm sure the people who play that sort of noise are looking for this kind of reaction, it's meant to be offensive or they wouldn't be doing it.

I'll put my lame cover band up against that anyday, most clubs wouldn't allow that kind of garbage.

You guys really need to watch your collective languages, it's really demonstrates your lack of intelligence and maturity.

I listened to your band, sounded like the singer in The Turtles with a nazal condition. Music was very simplistic, and obviously done in a studio of some kind. I have to admit though it did sound like music, not good mind you, but it did sound like music.



Music is organized sound. To be technically classified as music it needs a variance in pitch and really not much else. your wrong. Again.

Your band sounds awesome dude. I'll have a listen when I get home.

Anyone who rejects music ever as being "just noise" is just close-minded, pure and simple. It's one thing to not enjoy a band, but completely another to dismiss them when they are clearly talented.

One thing I really did like about that song was the shifting rhythmic feel.

nice tune. I like the turn-on-a-dime precision between different rhythmic feels. fun stuff. what's the instrumentation? the drums have a lot of balls and conviction. what did y'all record on?

johnnyringo: quit acting like a child. nobody cares that you're not open-minded enough to accept that what you call "noise" might be technically challenging for musicians to play and intellectually stimulating for listeners. Just say you don't care for it and move on, or just be positive about the bands you like and stfu when it comes to your attempts to belittle the creative spirit of others.

remember, creative art isn't always about soothing the soul. sometimes you want to give life to something harsher. picasso didn't make his living painting realistic portraits of the english countryside. when ornette coleman first started out, people used to go on about how he "couldn't play" and made fun of his plastic saxaphone.

I'll be honest its not my kind of music, but like with most music, well all of it apart from rap I can appreciate what goes into it, so good on you and keep the good work up.

As for that rude guy on here I apologise for him as there's just no need to be that rude, and for the rest of you who took it upon themselves to have a go back, then shame on you! Can't you see people who post replies like that are attention seeking stirrers and by you guys being rude back A. makes you as bad as him in the first place and B. you give him the satisfaction he wanted, by giving him the attention. Why can't we just ignore idiots like that, because we know what someone like is?!

Cheers guys, Ash.
