I like writing counterpoint. It adds depth.


Somewhat true, but it can just as easily be something youd have to take a multi semester college course to fully understand. Capital is one of the premier private colleges of music, yes better than berkely. And they offer a 3 semester course on counterpoint alone.

If anybody's looking for modern bands that utilise counterpoint, check out Gorgasm and Anata to name but two.

Ain't hard or special? Fairly different? Weaving sound? Not composing?

What the fuck are you talking about?

Infinity's tab of Entropy Within by Anata (try over at Rivers Of Gore) has some in the chorus I believe. I don't think it's full on counterpoint but there's enough difference between the two guitar lines for it to qualify as such to these ears.

The examples I can think of from Gorgasm haven't been tabbed but track 5 from Masticate to Dominate has a good demonstration of counterpoint in the bridge riff.

Also, how would everybody class most of the songs on Morbid Angel's Heretic: Counterpoint or polyrhythms?

If you're talking about this, this is not counterpoint....merely polyphony.

Counterpoint is an art, not a science.

The dead give-away is the fact that there're parallel unisons.

This is actually called homophony.
