Top 10 YouTube Videos About Metal Music

Some videos are good because they are useful - they explain and demonstrate accurately certain things in metal music. Some of them are also funny.

I've watched more vids of this type but forgot their titles and authors and now I can't find them.
There were good instructional vids among them.

The Top Ten

1 Punk vs Metal - Charlie Parra del Riego

In the light of the recent discussions on what is metal and what is not, this video is very useful. Metal is often confused with punk. - Metal_Treasure

Agreed. This is my favorite music video there. - zxm

2 How To Be POWER METAL! - SteveTerreberry

It presents power metal features correctly, except the focus on DragonForce style (the song he wrote sounds like a DF song).
My favorite part is when he talks about power metal drum beats - "boot camp, booty camp". LOL.
Power metal vocals part is funny but he doesn't exaggerate - vocals in this subgenre are really demanding. - Metal_Treasure

3 Metal VS Metalcore - Jared Dines

This video as good. But the problem was I couldn't see the strumming of this video. - zxm

4 Deathcore VS Death Metal - Jared Dines

Jared Dines is the vocalist for deathcore band Dissimulator and drummer for 2 more bands. - Metal_Treasure

5 Top 10 Guitar Effects! - SteveTerreberry

I think it's very interesting. - Metal_Treasure

6 Punk VS Metal 2 - Charlie Parra del Riego

Both part 1 and 2 are very helpful. Once I said about this. What's the difference between metal and punk. I knew nobody would believe me. But when I found this video, Jackpot! All the things I said were exactly accurate. Charlie Parra del Riego have also made other videos too. Those are helpful too. - zxm

7 How To Be DJENT! - SteveTerreberry

My favorite part: "duh-djent? The d is silent. The d is silent! " - Metal_Treasure

8 Obscura - "Akroasis" Bass Playthrough - Linus Klausenitzer

He plays 7-string bass. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

This video includes some other genres as well. But just give five minutes for this video. And you'll almost the whole genres of metal. You'll know how metal songs are played and what's the differences. - zxm

12 Rock vs. Metal - Raz Ben Ari

I believe it'll clear some of the misunderstanding. Great video. - zxm

13 How to Play Power Chords | Heavy Metal Guitar - Howcast

I recently found this. Remember when I said metal riffs are based on two or three strings. Well, you could call me wrong. But would you call Alex Skolnick wrong? (to the troll visitor). - zxm

Thanks for this video, zxm. I didn't know it and it's really very good - good quality, you can see everything, and I like Alex Skolnick.
By the way, I didn't think you were wrong - most of the time metal guitarists use 2-3 strings. - Metal_Treasure

14 Classic Metal VS Modern Metal - Jared Dines
15 George Kollias - " Shall Rise Shall Be Dead " - YouGroove

There's nothing funny here, just a drum cam shows his drumming technique and how he gets that crazy speed. - Metal_Treasure

16 Fast Guitar Solo vs Slow Guitar Solo - Charlie Parra del Riego

This video is another good video. - zxm

Thanks for adding this zxm - I didn't know it but I liked it very much. I was surprised he mentioned Gary Moore - a guitarist I like but who's very underrated and not well known. - Metal_Treasure

17 Pretty Songs with Death Metal Lyrics! - SteveTerreberry

27 Wake Up Dead - With EVERY Metallica Tone - That Headband Guy

This is an awesome video its fun to hear Wake Up Dead sound like Metallica - christangrant

28 10 styles of metal - Jared Dines

Its about metal vocals. Though it was a joke. But somehow its not totally wrong. - zxm

My explanation for what Jared did in this video, i.e. why he conveniently replaced metal with punk and some marginal "metal styles".
He is a deathcore musician and he knows punk-based vocal styles. Also, he probably can't sing metal vocal styles - I don't think he's good enough to demonstrate power metal vocals, heavy metal and traditional metal vocals, progressive metal vocals, and so on. - Metal_Treasure

This time I disagree with zxm (sorry my friend).
I am a massive Jared fan but this video isn't useful and is even misleading - out of the 10 vocal styles only 2 are metal: black metal and thrash metal. And he wasn't convincing because his thrash vocals didn't sound like thrash at all.
Why he called the video "Metal" when he did punk / core types of vocals - hardcore/punk, post hardcore, metalcore, deathcore, grindcore.
Then he added hair metal (what), Southern metal (? ) and beatdown. Yeah, all these are typical and well known metal subgenres (sarcasm).
It's odd but from this video you can learn better what are NOT metal vocal styles. - Metal_Treasure

29 Seasons in the Abyss - With Every Megadeth Tone (Symphony of Destruction Solo) - That Headband Guy
