Top Ten Reasons Why Black Metal is Better Then Hair MetalLucretia
The Top Ten
Not Venom. Also, hair metal bands can’t just because they’re hair metal? - CostcoHotDogs
That doesn’t make black metal better and that doesn’t mean hair metal is bad. - CostcoHotDogs
And black metal doesn’t? Whenever I listen to Venom, it sounds like a constipated moose that thinks it has talent. - CostcoHotDogs
Complexity < Quality. - CostcoHotDogs
Great list. And I agree most of these but not with this one.
Actually, black metal isn't really that complex. It just needs a lot of energy on tremolo picking. The riffs are mostly made from endless tremolo picking consisting on different notes. Many non-black metal great guitarists like Ritchie Blackmore, Eddie Van Halen, MAB, Eric Johnson, Matt Bellamy or Dick Dale has tremendous skill on tremolo picking. But they don't use it often. Cause it just makes the sound heavy/fast. So, I think any good guitarist has the skill for playing black metal. But not all black metal guitarist have skills for playing other genres.
For example, You could listen to Buckethead's Soothsayer. There is a very fast tremolo picking. Approximately at 8:00. Which is faster than most black metal riffs. - zxm
Sappy lyrics > Songs about murdering people or satan - CostcoHotDogs
Usually death metal, yeah, but black metal does it as well, and black metal has more about satan than killing people. - CostcoHotDogs
Having a complex history doesn’t make it better. - CostcoHotDogs
That’s not a reason. - CostcoHotDogs
I’d rather hear sappy love songs than songs about killing people or satan. - CostcoHotDogs
Not really. - CostcoHotDogs
Glam metal artists = Bunch of Gays. They don't need to sing about girls. They are girls themselves. Weird stage performances. - zxm
I’d rather watch some transvestites than some dumbass who wears “corpsepaint”. - CostcoHotDogs
It’s not metal, it’s rock. It’s been mislabeled. That doesn’t mean black metal is better either. - CostcoHotDogs
