Bump because I haven't listened to this album in a while but it's just as glorious as I remembered:

I’ve been listening to a lot of demon hunter recently, it popped up on my Blindside pandora channel and has been pretty good!

I laughed way too hard at this.

 

 

#1 still makes me laugh, and I saw it when it first aired.

That was pretty awesome actually!

 

Kind of reminds me of this, just because of the awesomeness of the kids, and the vocals.

I saw an O'Keefe foundation cover of a song I liked a while back.

 

The kids they have are crazy-talented.  Like, how do you get that much skill at that age?  Most people spend the kids' whole lifetime to be half as good.

Ohhhhh, so glad to see a metal thread on here!  My band is actually getting ready to release our second album.  I just need to finish up the artwork and send it to our label.  Here's us playing a song of ours earlier this year.  We like that fast stuff.  I'm the singer/guitarist:

I know a guy who went to a similar music school.  Incredibly talented and can basically do anything on a guitar.  I think some of it is growing up in the internet age where kids can sit in front of a computer and get lessons on how to play almost anything that perks their interest.  From a young age, pretty much all he did was play music.  A "tell" is how they often strap the guitar on.  My old bass-player asked "why do these kids all seem to play with the guitar in their armpit?" I answered, "Because they learned to play by sitting in front of a computer for hours on end with the guitar relatively high - when they stand up, they strap the guitar in a similar position.  We basically learned to play standing up."  

Even today, when I practice I tend to play standing up.  

I'll be home over Thanksgiving week and will try to get some guitars photographed and posted for sale here if anyone is interested.  I really need to get the collection paired down a bit.

Also, can someone send me a FB link/invite to the "big" Awesome Cheap Guitars group?  When I search I only seem to see the smaller group (with 1.3K members).

They have a bunch of good ones honestly. And some seriously crazy talented kids. Its a pretty awesome program, be under 18, apply, and if accepted they will provide the studio, training and instruments. Pretty damn cool.

 

There is one group that did a few Pantera covers recently that are damn good.

Sabaton, or Manowar?  I'd classify both as cheesy to be honest...

Sabaton. Cheesy, but not in a Dragonforce kind of way...

I friggin' love that Dragonforce is a unit of cheesiness, like "on a scale of 1 to Dragonforce, i give the Vornado a six."

That's the only Rush song I can even come close to playing. And it's got the perfect groove.

Mechinas new album is out. Their discography is basically a scifi novel as metal albums and it's great E36 M3.

The other night I saw Grammy-nominated Death Angel. When he mentioned the nomination, the place erupted: Grammy! Grammy! Grammy!

Then he added that, no matter what you think about the Grammys, they got the nomination by delivering classic Bay Area thrash metal so just the nomination is a win for all of us.
