We are definitely having a changing of the guard. People come and people go. It's to be expected. While certainly I miss these people -- especially because I used to hit concerts offline with them -- we have a ton of new people on the board. A lot of our set lists are coming from newer names.

Here are some updates:

Oscar / Hecho... some of you may remember... he was getting into bootlegs quite a bit... then his computer broke... and his activity never returned. His cell pretty much goes to VM all the time now.

Allan made some personal choices that steered him and his family away from metal.

Bouville? He fell into Blaze's Lake Of Fire, maybe a chupacabra finally got him at a dig. Not sure.

ADD is still here... just not posting like before... he's a senior in high school and it's spring. Not sure about MetalDrummer.... I believe he's a senior too...

EvilCheeseWedge

One other mention that I'm really proud... recently metalsetlists got tags for set lists... I did a few here and there to demonstrate them up front... but a few of you came together and tagged hundreds into the thousands of set lists. That is very fucking cool and tells me everything I need to know about how we're doing.

You guys fucking rock!!!

Five years is ago... I was talking to someone tonight about ADD... old IMBB folks remember his early days as a thirteen-year-old-megadeth-fanboy. Now, he's a seriously badass metal fucker... probably one of the most knowledge musical resources here.

I also remember when this place was a dinky little community :dance:

;)

We're still pretty dinky but growing and healthy. I still find just as exciting as day one when someone posts a set list or a review from the great unknown. We have people damn near everywhere. It's a pretty damn small world.

It would be cool if one of these of days we can find a way to get a few folks together for Nemesis in Germany. She has been here from almost the start -- maybe the start -- despite the fact that her time zone places her outside a lot of the busy times.

It's funny how much has changed in five years. I remember posting on the IMBB as a pro-Republican anti-alcohol non-Queensryche fan. I can't really imagine being called a Republican now :eyes: I can't remember a large portion of my 21st birthday, and I've been to a few Queensryche shows in my time ;)

This site has come along ways though. I love reading the set lists, and the community that has formed up around them is pretty good :dance:

Oh yeah, and I will forever love that picture she found about not using cheese wedges ;)

Yeah... I wasn't sure how this place would turn out when I first showed up here. I didn't really expect it to be a regular posting place though, that's for sure. This is definitely the board I spend the most time on. So if I'm not around much, I'm not around much on boards at all ;)

Hmm, good point.

I remember when I started posting here back in 05. I was a stuck up "Led Zeppelin is the best band ever" guy, then I met Steve and he got me into more metal stuff, I think he played me some Kamelot and I was like "holy shit, awesome". I'd say about 90% of my music folder now is from bands I've read about here.

Due to my college workload and my career choice I can't afford to be the most party-hard metal motherfucker out there, but it's still a strong part of my personality :)

Yea, Div. You talked about Iced Earth way more than you did Zeppelin.

I don't think I can really say if this board has swayed my tastes that much. I'd say if anything it got me into Pink Floyd. Well and perhaps it convinced me to go deeper into Rush besides Moving Pictures, 2112 and all the live albums.

As for "metal status" at least you guys have all found "scenes" of some sort. I've been wondering around colleges for 5 years and aside from being a radio DJ, I haven't found shit!

Yeah, he and I are seniors. We got some pretty good tickets for Maiden in Concord, but we definitely aren't as hardcore metal as we used to be... there is just too much good music to be found to limit yourself to one genre. Plus the whole "metalhead" schtick is pretty lame

The metalhead schtick... hmmm.... personally, I don't live in a schtick or worry about a cliche... This site was named METAL set lists for a good reason but it's always been about the people make up our tribe and their music, whatever it may be. That's not to say we're going to allow a bunch of crap on the latest set lists tote board but I would suggest this approach: "Fuck you. I'll listen to whatever the hell I want."

Beyond the schtick, that thing we love as metal can be found in a lot of different forms:

** Prelude in C Sharp Minor, Op.3, No.2 / Rachmaninoff / Vladimir Ashkenazy (pianist) -- this short piece sounds like it came straight out of hell.

** Nocturne in C minor, Op.48 / Chopin / Vladimir Ashkenazy (pianist) --

** Polonaise in A-flat Major, Op.53 - Heroic / Chopin / Arthur Rubinstein (pianist) -- good for power metalers

** Piano Sonata No. 9 - "Black Mass" / Scriabin / Robert Taub (pianist) -- no it's not satanic but it is exercise in dissonance that will attract those who are.

** Pharaoh's Dance / Bitches Brew / Miles Davis -- trust me, just listen to one. Late at night. Low lights. It will change your life.

** Relections of Earth & We Go On / Epcot: Tapestry of Dreams / Walt Disney World -- Yes, Disney music. You can find this on youtube complete with fireworks. This is Epcot's nightly fireworks show. No Disney characters but more pyro -- not just fireworks but fire and explosions -- than ANY metal concert.

Let's go a step further a(borrowing from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanticism) here) and deeper to get at the roots of all this:

Romanticism is a complex artistic, literary, and intellectual movement that originated in the second half of the 18th century in Western Europe, and gained strength during the Industrial Revolution.[1] It was partly a revolt against aristocratic social and political norms of the Age of Enlightenment and a reaction against the scientific rationalization of nature, and was embodied most strongly in the visual arts, music, and literature.

The movement stressed strong emotion as a source of aesthetic experience, placing new emphasis on such emotions as trepidation, horror, and the awe experienced in confronting the sublimity in untamed nature and its qualities that are "picturesque", both new aesthetic categories. It elevated folk art and custom, as well as arguing for a "natural" epistemology of human activities as conditioned by nature in the form of language, custom and usage.

Our modern sense of a romantic character is sometimes based on Byronic or Romantic ideals. Romanticism reached beyond the rational and Classicist ideal models to elevate medievalism and elements of art and narrative perceived to be authentically medieval, in an attempt to escape the confines of population growth, urban sprawl and industrialism, and it also attempted to embrace the exotic, unfamiliar and distant in modes more authentic than chinoiserie, harnessing the power of the imagination to envision and to escape.

The ideologies and events of the French Revolution, rooted in Romanticism[citation needed], affected the direction it was to take, and the confines of the Industrial Revolution also had their influence on Romanticism, which was in part an escape from modern realities; indeed, in the second half of the nineteenth century, "Realism" was offered as a polarized opposite to Romanticism. Romanticism elevated the achievements of what it perceived as misunderstood heroic individuals and artists that altered society. It also legitimized the individual imagination as a critical authority which permitted freedom from classical notions of form in art. There was a strong recourse to historical and natural inevitability, a Zeitgeist, in the representation of its ideas.

I would also reading wiki's article on Romantic Music (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romantic_music). You find additional commentary on some of the composers I've listed above.


There's a lot more to metal than schtick. It's not just about blast beats, imagery, beer drinking, or whatever cliche you want to throw up. Expression and attitude... and it can go as deep or shallow as you want...
