Metal, Rock - Heavy Metal

Author Comments

This is part of my series of arrangements of classical pieces of music. My influences for this piece include "To Live is to Die" from the "...And Justice for All" album by Metallica. I also aim to show that heavy metal as a genre is very versatile and expressive.

This was awesome, man! I loved the mellowness of the guitar and the wail of the violin.

Who fucking zero-bombed this one?

If we got a list of names, NG would be shut down by the end of the week after what we would perpetrate!

Such is the love I have for this song. There are flaws, but I just brought this to 3.38, a 0.57 increase from before I voted 5.

I've always considered heavy metal to be too loud; some of the best stuff came from the slow, creeping tunes and psychedelic aspect of the form. Yes, there are psychedelic elements, as well as hard blues. It's a style that clutches and masters the irreverence of grim tidings, hence its subject matter.

As with any genre, Heavy Metal was derived from the classics. Thanks for sharing your vision (or sound) with the rest of us.

Very nice

My only problem is that there are bits where the guitar is not in time with the drums, but overall, I think this is a very beautiful rendition of this.

I'd like to hear you do the 3rd movement of the piece, if you can. That section is crazy and would probably make a good metal piece.

Thanks dude! Glad you liked it!

Do you mean the way there are two time signatures in this piece? I use the original 2/2 for the clean sections, and 6/8 for the heavy part (which I feel gives it more of a metal swing). The sections the link the two are difficult because they change time signature, and the two do overlap, which might make it sound out.

I'm confident that its not out of time, its either the effect of the time signatures distorting things, or maybe I have a latency issue with my recording equipment (my computer sucks!)
