Hello, everyone. Just wanted to figure it out if there is anyone else who is listening both classical music and metal.

Regards,

Haha, I saw them 3 times in the 80s and early 90s. I miss those days. I went to a lot of concerts then.

Can't say I listen to them too much today anymore. When I'm not listening to piano music, I like Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, Slipknot, etc. Stuff in that genre.

Yes love her versions! I listen to all of the above. Classic rock, alternative, heavy alternative, techno, shoe gaze, etc. Love it. Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Silversun Pickups, Audioslave, Death Cab... the list goes on. I've always said the only difference between the best rock guitarists and classical pianists are the instruments they use and the generation in which they were born.

I love all their older stuff ( cue intro to The Four Horsemen ), but interested in other directions these days smile

Don't watch their documentary 'Some Kind of Monster" unless you want them completely ruined for you....bunch of whiners!

I am jealous. If there was any chance to go on their 90s concerts, I definitely would. But I wasn't even born at this time laugh

Jekyll and Hyde is really nice song! Of slipknot I like the most "Before I forget" because it is not so hard . Although I am fan of Corey Tyler.

I graduated HS in 91. School through the 80s and then 8 years of college and grad school through the 90s was a good time laugh Although I did get into some trouble. I think kids had a lot more freedom back then. During late junior high and high school we would loiter all night long in the parking lot of a shopping plaza close to a pizza joint. There would hundreds of us - it was the official hangout of the town. Kids doing what kids do best - getting into trouble! You would never be able to do that today.

The best concert for me hands down though was Pink Floyd, 1994 Veterans Stadium, Philadelphia.

I like their cover of Bad Company. Snuff is probably my favorite from Slipknot. Vkgoeswild has a piano arrangement for it. Would love to try it one day, but until then, I'll just play easier stuff smile

I don't think it was the same in my country. Now there is more freedom than it was in 90s. That's my opinoin and it is based on talks with my parents and grandparents. Their parents were more strict than parents of our generation, and the rules were rigid. However now more of the teenagers are glued to the screen, which is very irritating. So, definitely 20-30 years ago life was funnier without technology. Where are you from?

I tried to learn Nothing else matters on piano, but I need more practice to play it clearly. Do you work on any pieces now?

I grew up on the east coast, north of Philadelphia. Hope the Eagles win today, but I'm not feeling it with Foles.

I think life without tech was fun. We had to invent our own stuff to do. Several years I went to my parents place in PA for Christmas. Many of my nieces and nephews were there. It was sad because they all sat there staring at their phones. I mean, they were texting each other and playing Words with Friends. I said you kids need to go outside and cause trouble, haha. Holidays as a kid for me was only being inside to eat. Otherwise, you went outside and did whatever the weather allowed. Then again it was a rural area, so it was easier to do that.

Are you asking if I'm trying to play any metal pieces? I haven't attempted anything by Metallica. I did get Sound of Silence from Vkgoeswild which I started, but put on hold. I'm finishing up Nuvole Bianche which I hope to do for next month's recital. After that, I'll go back to Sound of Silence.

Totally agree with you.

No, am asking in general. I am learning Fibich Poem and one Sonatina.

You play the guitar? Or drums? I like that their songs' texts are meaningful. Also James' voice is so nice. Hes is one of my favourite vocalists as well as Corey Tyler (and Ed Sheeran despite the fact that he sings in another genre).

As a "wanna be stoner" kid growing up in the east bay in California, I was pretty much destined to be a Metallica fan. Saw them live at Day on the Green 1991 along with Queensryche, Soundgarden and Faith No More. Crazy concert, I remember at some point people were tearing the sod up and throwing it in the air, and then eventually at other people and a few people left in ambulances. I got pissed at them about their stance on streaming and didn't listen for a while. But my 10 year old son loves them now so I listen occasionally. Just the older stuff.


Instruments: Yamaha CLP-685, Kawai ES110
Pieces In Progress:
  • Chopin Waltz in A minor Poshumous (almost performance ready)
  • Chopin Mazurka in B flat Major Op 7 (very much W.I.P.)
  • Beethoven "Easy Sonata" 20 No. 2 (just started)

Ah those were the days! My wife likes to say she saw Collective Soul three times - once at Woodstock 91, once in NYC, and once eating lunch at at Taco Bell in Stockbridge, GA! lol Since then we saw them in FL a few times; one of my favorite alt rock bands. We also saw Live. Never got to RHCP but there's still time.

RIP Dolores O Riordann

Metallica was my favorite music in high school but now they are too hard for a softy like me. I really admired how they did their own distinct kind of alternative instead of just imitating the burnt groaning typical of many Nirvana imitators. But it was a watershed moment when youtube was invented in my late 20s and I found myself playing previously ignored Natalie Merchant, instead of what I liked in high school. Nowadays I only occasionally play their mellow tunes from Load or their symphony concert.

The first time I heard Metallica's song it was a totally hardcore for me. I couldn't understand how people like music like that. But I slightly turn into their fan. Even now I am listening harder songs than Metallica's ones. I think that hearing a song just once is not enough to find the beautiful things in guitar solos and riffs. It is only natural if one doesn't like this kind of music the first time he/she hears it. Do you agree?

I do like Symphony of Metallica (S&M), performed live with San Francisco Orchestra. Perhaps I'll listen to that on Google Play today smile I haven't listened to the Call of Ktula in a while.

I like a good bit of it - including some of the "covers" by others, such as Apocalyptica. Heavy metal cello? Oh yes. . .
