Don't wanna sound like an idiot, but what does the video above have to do with heavy metal? i know many european metalheads like going to those folk and renaissance festivals, but i still don't find the connection, but well that's just me, maybe is metal as hell for everybody else, and thanks for sharing anyway, it's a pretty cool video, i'd like to got to one of those festivals myself one day. And here is a little interesting mini-documentary about the fall in popularity of heavy metal in the late 80's, it has Halford, and it even has DIO bashing the glam scene, if you haven't seen it already, you don't wanna miss this:

It is the heavy melody and flavor of traditional folk/classical music that appeals to some metal heads. Not many metal bands today mix the acoustic and folk elements that bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, early Metallica, and others were using at the time.

I would call what we seek "arbitrary dark melody", meaning the melody is open-ended and you never really know where it will land. It can be found in a non-acoustic setting as well, in modern 'doom' metal, which was born from the blues mostly. For example,



Here is an even better example of arbitrary melody.

I get you, you're talking about metal without metal. Some people actually thinks (and i kind of agree with them) that classical composers like chopin, wagner, and sibelius were actually making heavy metal, because some of the music shares a same element, a very important part of the music which lies behind all the distortion and the speed, and it actually makes it what it is, i never had a name for this aspect of the music, and i always unintentionally and instinctively use it to differentiate between core-mtv "metal" garbage, and actual heavy metal, since the core garbage always lacks that element, and heavy metal always has it, but i never knew what it was, and it's pretty hard to explain, especially because i'm not an expert in music, but maybe you just did in your message, maybe is that "arbitrary dark melody" that you're talking about, i think this is the perfect example:

Yes! A fine example. Tempo or timing changes also help to keep things open-ended. Iommi is probably one of the best examples of someone who used this element consistently. He had the deep roots in blues, classical, and folk music that are missing in most of what they call modern metal today.

The Iommi/Bulter duo could take the melody and tempo all over the place without ever sounding progressive because they always favored the blues style and pentatonic scale. Iommi used the classical element mostly in solo breaks by imitating horn, violin, and piano lines - for example, the Iommi trill. Album 1, Track 1 is an example.

Did you know Iommi was going to play in Jethro Tull before joining Black Sabbath?

LMAO at 1:36, come on man...

I think the funniest part in this is that the music is actually good. I wonder why i can't find them in the metal archives, because they are black metal musically speaking, parody or not. They have nanowar and cannabis corpse in the archives too so... i wonder whats up with these dudes and the encyclopedia.

Edit: ha i'm so careless, i didn't even check the guy's you tube account, is actually just some finn making funny videos about random stuff, not a real band, the music is still not close to bad though, specially the one where they're playing in the snow.

I like that one, weird, but good, very heavy and atmospheric, and the kitty is so cute ^^

Again i don't see what does that malasyan asian folk-rock thing you posted up there has to do with heavy metal, lets keep on topic man.

Lets keep posting stuff in this same spirit, not just random ridiculous stuff, as far as i remember you created your own topic for that.

As far as I know, heavy metal is defined by the guitar and not some piano solo. (beer1)

I can't read your mind on what you think should be posted here, or what you think is metal or not, so I will move on. As a guitar player and musician, I think it would be very interesting to mix the complex rhythms of Asia in a more traditional metal context. You simply do not see what I see.

I didn't like some of your posts either, but also didn't go out of my way to complain about it. No hard feelings, but our tastes are very different. (boobies1)

You don't need to read my mind in order to know what should be posted here, the tittle says it all, curious,funny, weird METAL RELATED videos, not random stuff you think is funny. Maye i don't know much about music, i'm not a musician myself, but i just don't see how is that ridiculous asian band you posted up there metal in any way, takes the back street boys to get less metal than that. Also, it's not that i don't like what you posted (i like some, i don't like others) is that i'm trying to preserve the nature of the thread, that's why i'm telling you to keep on topic, i don't want to see this turned into "Jimme's fun house", do you see the post above this one by bDisgust? he got it right first go, didn't take a psychic huh?

PS: you don't need a guitar to make metal, just listen to apocalyptica, or van canto.
