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 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.

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." The power metal vocals part is funny but he doesn't exaggerate. Vocals in this subgenre are really demanding.

3 Metal VS Metalcore - Jared Dines

This video is good. However, the problem was that I couldn't see the strumming.

4 Deathcore VS Death Metal - Jared Dines

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

5 Top 10 Guitar Effects! - SteveTerreberry
6 Punk VS Metal 2 - Charlie Parra del Riego

Both Part 1 and 2 are very helpful. I once mentioned 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 has also made other helpful videos.

7 How To Be DJENT! - SteveTerreberry
8 Obscura - "Akroasis" Bass Playthrough - Linus Klausenitzer
9 Top 10 Neoclassical Guitarists - Blend Guitar

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

10 Obscura | Vortex Omnivium - Official Guitar Playthrough by Steffen Kummerer & Christian Münzner
The Contenders
11 History of Metal in One Song

This video includes some other genres as well. Just give five minutes to this video. You'll learn about almost all the genres of metal, how metal songs are played, and the differences between them.

12 George Kollias - " Shall Rise Shall Be Dead " - YouGroove

There's nothing funny here. Just a drum cam shows his drumming technique and how he achieves that crazy speed.

13 Rock vs. Metal - Raz Ben Ari

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

14 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).

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.

15 Classic Metal VS Modern Metal - Jared Dines
16 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 is very underrated and not well known.

This video is another good one.

17 Pretty Songs with Death Metal Lyrics! - SteveTerreberry

I've seen this one at least twice. It's hilarious.

18 Christian Muenzner - The Tell Tale Heart (Demonstration)
19 Cryptopsy - Two-Pound Torch (Bass and Guitars Playthrough)
20 Beyond Creation - Bass Video - Omnipresent Perception

Insane fretless bass playing in a prog/technical death metal song. The bassist is Dominic "Forest" Lapointe. And he's left-handed.

21 Djent VS Shred - Jared Dines
22 Super Mario Bros DJENT - SteveTerreberry
23 Songs After Bad Translations METAL EDITION! - SteveTerreberry
24 Obscura - "Ten Sepiroth" Bass Playthrough by Linus Klausenitzer
