  • instrumental metal as a genre of music

    is there such thing as an 'instrumental metal' genre? a band like metallica or megadeth that doesn't have any vocals.

      Yes, thanks for that info. I checked out the band and they are fantastic.

    I think there's a lot of stuff out there. However, it's very hard to do well. I think a lot of it is going to be prog metal.

        What if the vocals sound like someone moving furniture?

        I got caught up in the Shed Guitar movement in the 1980's, keeping up with Malmsteen's, Vai's, Satriani's, Angelo's and what ever guitar acrobat that came along.
        It got pretty ridiculous, everybody started to sound a like, songwriting started to a backseat at times and got sterile quick.
        Eric Clapton and Eddie Van Halen, gave up the burden of being of being "Guitar Gods" and still kicked very strong music and proved there is LIFE AFTER SHRED !!!!
        Some people who seen me play in the 1980 in clubs, were surprised to see me playing Blues and other kinds of Rock music with feeling and dynamics, in recent years.
        Shred will never die, there's a new generation of young guitar slingers coming around and some are pretty damn good too.

        How many guitarists does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Five , one to screw it in , hit the switch and four to sit around bragging how much better they could have done it !!!! 😱👹😲

            ​That's interesting. did you gig yourself back in the 80's or did you just stay at home?

              I don't think Clapton was ever a Guitar God. I would say Hendrix and VH were. Clapton is known more for song writing, as opposed to amazing guitar technique.

                  I agree here as I never understood why he was considered this. The recognition was placed on him for his stint with Mayall's band in 65 and 66. I was more impressed by his tasty tones than anything else he did.

                    Clapton's work with Cream was what broke him big here in the States. The long improvisations in the live recordings...The solo on "Crossroads". Studio tracks on "Disraeli Gears" and "Goodbye". The "Layla" album...His work along with Duane Allman's input. That's the stuff I love to this day.
                    People of generations younger than mine tend to dismiss Clapton's work.
                    I think Clapton is a guitar God. I respect that others do not.

                      It all sounds very human to me. Great engineering and production work though once all the instrument and vocals are turned up.
