I just read a post about an argument between drummers who like metal, and who dont. One person said theres no soul and no rythym to bob your head to. You gotta be kidding me. Metal is derived out of passion and soul, it does not focus on problems on the surface such as your girlfreind breaking up with you or your dog getting run over, it deals with problems that are from the inside and expresses it. Things that truly break people apart. And no rythym to bo your head to? Have you forgotten headbanging? Maybe not bobbing but following a rythym none the less. Maybe just a rythym too fast for you to follow, hm? And its expression gentleman, and ladies. You cant slander that. Metal shows extreme talent, connection with fellow band members playing at such high speed and intensity, shows great fills, licks, endurance, strength, mastery of transitions, everything. I agree, those who can not see metal for what it is, are truly ignorant. Appreciate the music, the expression, and open your mind. I play mainly metal and have more passion for it than anything in my life. Music is my life, and metal is what I love and it has truly saved my life. Just open your eyes and your ears and hear the music.
