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

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.

Agreed. This is my favorite music video there.

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 VS Metalcore - Jared Dines

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

Deathcore VS Death Metal - Jared Dines

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

Top 10 Guitar Effects! - SteveTerreberry

I think it's very interesting.

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.

How To Be DJENT! - SteveTerreberry

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

Obscura - "Akroasis" Bass Playthrough - Linus Klausenitzer

He plays 7-string bass.

Top 10 Neoclassical Guitarists - Blend Guitar

It was nice to see some good but underrated guitarists on this video, such as Timo Tolkki of Stratovarius and Jani of Sonata Arctica.

Obscura | Vortex Omnivium - Official Guitar Playthrough by Steffen Kummerer & Christian Münzner

The Contenders

History of Metal in One Song

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.

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.

Rock vs. Metal - Raz Ben Ari

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

How to Play Power Chords | Heavy Metal Guitar - Howcast

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.

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).

Classic Metal VS Modern Metal - Jared Dines
Fast Guitar Solo vs Slow Guitar Solo - Charlie Parra del Riego

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.

This video is another good video.
