I might try downtuned orchestral songs with tango flamenco screamo :)

I'm learning/practicing nothing but Arabian/Eastern/ethnic scales right now.

Writing a riff in an Arabian scale sounds interesting.

Messing with the harmonic minor, I've pulled some sweet Arabic/Turkish sounds. I've also put some classical taste from the minor scales into some of my metal. Some even has a russian feel like ha-tu ha-tu ha-tu ha-tu ha-tu ha-tu ha-tu HEY!

one time i tried playing shitty and then combining that with metal... ended up coming up with nu-metal

At the moment I try to combine Techniqal Progressive Jazz with Spanish Traditional Music. The outcome of that sounds new and fresh, and will be included in my new compositions....
And of course Funk with Progressive Metal... But that idea I got from Spastic Ink..... i actually sounds good....

I'm actually focusing on that too.

What I tend to do is mix different band styles

eg. my incomplete powertab file contains influences from Meshuggah, Slayer, Necrophagist and Dillenger Escape Plan

yes those scales are pretty cool. i use some of them in some of my songs, but im not trying to go all out like yngwie with minor modes. in my eyes yngwie is the best :beer: . those scales have a intresting/ dark sound to it.
if u like those scales then u should definitly check out the spanish phrygian.

I like that, I can really hear the Slayer in it!

The intro sounds like "Chaosphere Era" Meshuggah in a very "Slayer" mood. Nicely done.

are you talking of like mixing styles.
in my music theres usually everything. somthing poppy metal of course, reggae, jazz, the metal reggae is awsome.
as for real arabian/spanish souding scales, thats all i ever do. major anything just sounds stupid to me. in one of our songs(incomplete) it goes reall bluesy intro, then metal verse, then a break down with ritard to a slow reggae up beat kinda thing, then a crazy( i wish) neoclassicalish solo(im not good enough but its that kind of feel, string skiping and such) another song is all tribal dancy with the doom, ba doomba doom, ba doomba sound.look at sleep terror. metal then jazz.

That's pretty damn good! I really like the parts at bars 24, 25, 26 and 27.

Zertonshfits 2005-06-06 16:07

i once mixed punk and heavy metal :p

Mixing styles is very exciting, but it can be seen as "selling out" by some of the more reactionary, elitist, mainstream-paranoid "trend-haters" who have an exceedingly negative outlook on life.
Shame they can't just grow up.

I'd like to mix jazz with metal, but I'm not sure how to incorporate jazz stylings into heavy/brutal riffs, rather than having to do jazz breakdowns all the time..Any suggestions?

davie_gravy 2005-06-07 00:19

Seve420:

That piece was badass, I love the lil arpeggio part (bar 25), that sounds so goddamn kick fuckin ass. I hear slayer all over that main riff (starting with bar 11). Nice work!

\m/Eat At Joe's\m/:

Maybe try basing the progression using jazzy styled chords, then create a brutal riff over it.

\m/Eat At Joe's\m/ 2005-06-07 07:00

Thanks, davy. What do you mean, use notes from thew jazz chords?
I should really be figuring this out myself, but....I'm lazy sometimes. ::):.....Thanks again.
