    Hey

    You got some very cool riffs there. I'm not that knowledgeable on the technical side of things, so I can only comment on what I hear, but you sound like a very experienced guitar player. I have a bass laying around here, but never really gotten to it to actually learn to play the damn thing. However, since a couple of weeks ago I've decided to try and change that and start learning to play it. I've been wanting to pick up the drums as well, but they are so costly. I could just start by taking lessons of course, but ill start with my bass for now.

    Did you learn everything by yourself or took lessons from someone else? My brother did everything himself. A lot of my friends play in different metal bands, so I can always ask them for some advice too.

    What are your main influences? I listen to pretty much everything that has good riffs. Check my last fm : http://www.last.fm/user/Wehrwolfe (I recently cleared it completely though)

    How is the metal scene in Arizona?

    Keep it up!

    Hey thanks man! Much appreciated. I learned everything on my own but I did play sax growing up so I knew a little about music but played the broom and air guitared it for a long time so that's where I started! I learned blues methods then went from there. Plus tabs and Guitar Pro helps!

    Yeah drums are really costly and also when you get them there isn't a real guarantee that you can play them all the time. I've had neighbors call the cops on me all the time for playing them. I have a bass too and yeah it is a great instrument.

    Well I'm very founded in metal so some stuff would be: Testament, Overkill, Skeletonwitch, Strapping Young Lad, High on Fire, Rammstein, Death, Kreator, Neurosis, Coven, Saviors, ah you get it! ;)
    But other stuff: Carlos Santana, Fleetwood Mac, Old Crow, etc...

    Cool man I will definitely check out your channel. Keep in touch man!

    Chris

    ...Oh and the metal scene here is okay...in Flagstaff it really isn't great but no one wants the gay metalhead so far lol so its kind of a struggle! So the best thing so far is probably Sacred Reich!

    What is Truppensturm? Black metal?

    Haha, yes my air drumming skills are also pretty advancedicon_biggrin.gif

    I'm not too bad on guitar hero either icon_razz.gif

    Some good bands you got there. I saw High On Fire last year i think, they were very heavy. Big fan of Sleep as well.

    Kreator is excellent too. I don't have any Sacred Reich albums, but when I have some more money, ill see if I can buy that debut or something.

    You are looking to play in a thrash metal band?

    Truppensturm is german band.



    In beginning I was somewhere in the front/middle area of the crowd, but i was getting elbows, punches,e tc. from all angles, so had to move back. Great show though. Their album Salute to the Iron Emperors is great and very focussed on good riffs. It's a combination of death and black metal.

    For the most part thrash yeah but I really like the post-metal sludge/stoner riffs that make a pretty meaty riff! So trying to put that all in there!

    Yeah man they sound really heavy. Do you listen to any grind like Pig Destroyer/Wormrot/Napalm Death?

    That vocalist has a mean growl too. Looks intense! Do you listen to Sigh? A Japanese black metal band that is really heavy and they use trumpets as well!



    Also love some Danzig!

    I haven't been to a show like that in awhile, you are one lucky person sir! icon_biggrin.gif

    Well that's actually pretty funny. Some years ago a friend recommended Pig Destroyer to me as I was looking for some good grindcore bands, so I went out and bought their cd Natasha, expecting some vicious grindcore, but all I got was 1 longass post-metal/sludge song. I thought my friend was just messing with me, but turned out I just bought their only non-grindcore album out of their entire catalogue. So yeah, I know Pig Destroyer, but not the grindcore one icon_biggrin.gif I do like some Napalm Death, especially From Enslavement to Obliteration album. Wormrot, I'm not familiar with.

    Maybe you will like Unearthly Trance. They mix sludge/thrash/doom. I like their album The Trident the most.


    Man, don't remind me of it. I went to Roadburn festival this year and Sigh were playing there on sunday, but I had to go back on saturday, so I couldn't see them. I was pretty bummed out about it, because that must have been so good/weird live. Plus you don't get many opportunities to see them. Oh well.

    I go to shows/festivals pretty much constantly, but we get a lot of them as well.

    I know about Danzig, but don't have any albums of his. Can you recommend something?

    Hey these guys rock. Love that kind of music.

    Danzig 4 is my favorite!



    Man I wish we had cool festivals. All we have is recycled shit also know as monster energy tours. Same shitty bands that lack depth. Man it would be great to see Sigh but they never come.

    Those tours look like total shit indeed. Not to rub it in even more, but almost on a weekly basis we have tours passing through here, so I really can't complain. When I get home from work, ill have a listen. icon_smile.gif

    HAHA yeah they suck! But its cool cause all the good concerts are SUPER cheap! I recently saw Overkill and Kreator for $20 which is a damn good price. I couldn't feel my neck for three days! WORTH IT!

    That Danzig album is my favorite but any of his first four cd's are amazing! Check them all out!

    That's pretty cheap. I've yet to see Overkill. One of the more consistent thrash bands out there.

    Some years ago there was one of the biggest underground metal festivals of the world in Texas called Rites of Darkness. The guy organizing this was a bit of a rip-off though, half the bill ended up being cancelled due to booking mistakes, bands not getting paid, etc. The fest took place eventually, but this guy was threatened by multiple bands and since then it never took place again. My geography sucks, but I think u live pretty near to texas.

    Liking that Danzig album a lot btw icon_cool.gif

    Yeah like two states from there. I always wanted to go to the SXSW Festival there. Last year they had Skeletonwitch, Mutilation Rites, and Royal Thunder there. It would be amazing!



    Yeah gotta love that Danzig! I love how it just flows together.

    That MUtilation Rites sounds pretty good. At first I thought it was going to sound like those douchebags from Liturgy, but this has actually riffs and good ones too. That album cover is cool too.

    Holy shit, Hellfest just accounced part of the 2014 line-up

    Haha yes, being able to see Black Sabbath maybe for the last time would be amazing. Their early calmer and relaxing songs are excellent





    But I probably won't go. Too big festival and too many people for my taste. I prefer to do the smaller festivals.

    Love Planet Caravan. Great song! and Solitude. Iommi is the greatest! Yeah smaller concerts are better. The people are more core fans, barely any fair weathered fans. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Haha man that is awesome! Didn't know there was a lot of metal fans here! I just got Type O Negative's World Coming down. Very good and very very dark! I love Peter Steele, too bad he is gone now.

    Its effing cold here in FLG today. Not a huge fan of winter but it brings out good riffs! icon_evil.gif

    Really? It gets cold out there?

    I'm currently spinning the Occult Rock album by Aluk Todolo. Perfect nighttime music, but for most this is going to be a very difficult album to get into. It's instrumental, almost 80 mins long and the first song is well....pretty intense, enough to make most give up on it immediately. Someone accurately described it as " It's like if I invited you to my house, and immediately after opening the door I kicked you in the nuts."icon_lol.gif

    I really love this album though, it's mostly simple kraut rock, but with some more metal elements too. One of the best of 2012.

    And yea, Type O Negative is a good and underrated band.
