PostSubject: An Idea (feedback would be great)   Mon Apr 19, 2010 11:50 pm

I have an idea for a blog, something like "500 artists that you need to hear". It was inspired by the best things in life and the worst things blogs that have been posted around the forum. What do you guys think? My idea is to just have a band/musician posted each week, with a little spiel about them and why they're on the list, and recommendations for albums and songs. The list would not be in any kind of order of greatness or anything, just a list of artist that I find to be superb. It wouldn't just be metal either, it would be all kinds of genres (except for probably hip-hop/rap since I don't know much about it). Also if anyone thinks this is a cool idea and would want to be a part of the project I would definitely take volunteers. Does anyone like this idea? I would like to make it and attract a lot of traffic. I wouldn't really want to do it unless people actually kept up with it.

i think that this place is really public, but i dont think people frequent it enough. if there was a way to make a blogspot or something (that was your suggestion>) and have people go there, and reroute them here if they like the 500 artists, that could be cool

i do sat we keep it metal. i mean, cuse we all know about mostly metal. i mean, everyone knows more about other genres of music, but i say we keep it MOSTLY metal themed.

i also say we edit it as a group. i think that if we do something like this, we have to make it sound catchy, look nice. i mean, opinions could get messed up, but just a general language check and phrasing could be better

im in. i just dont want to make a page....assuming we go that direction

We could have it be strictly metal/metal related. That sounds good. So you think we should make it a blog and advertise the forum on there? Also you could help make it... aesthetically pleasing, if you so desire. I think this has the potential to be really good, we could get a lot of traffic by doing this. It would also be very fun, if you ask me.

I'll wait until we get some more feedback and I'll probably make it this weekend sometime. I'd like to get a bunch of people involved with a bunch of different tastes so we can accurately cover everything

I'd say with me and you, we have folk, melodeath, and prog pretty well covered. I also have a decent taste in black metal if I do say so myself, as well as some gothic and power metal. But I want to make sure we have people who know a lot about each genre. We can make this really really good.

Nobody takes advice from you because they're idiots. You know about a lot of great prog/melodeath bands and have showed me quite a bit of stuff. No one takes advice from me because I just know about a lot of well known stuff, I suppose. I like pretty much every genre of metal though.

Thanks guys, I'll see about getting this set up sometime. I guess what we could do is make a stickyed thread for us to plan in. We'll need everyone who's willing to pitch in for writing and band selection.

Ok well right now I'm just setting up the details. I made an about me section and a list of metal subgenres, feel free to comment on what you think should be changed or added. I'm going to have to develop a cool skin, hopefully I can get something similar to the one here at the forums to help make it seem more linked. And yes, we will need to keep a running list of bands, I think we can do it by subgenre and alphabetical order from there. I think we could have people develop their own lists and send them to me, then I will pick one each week and have the sender develop the post. I'll do the first one or so so we can get a good formula down for the post structure. We won't be posting links to the album download, unless we want to have someone comment on the blog with a link to a download or something. That way blogger doesn't kick us off. This can be a really good way to attract attention to the forum we need to make sure we don't get it banned lol

Well idk, would it get too hectic? Unless we make the rules state that any bands listed should be edited into the posters first thread, to avoid confusion.

Also, we should have posters list their bands in the following fashion

Death - Death Metal
Burzum - Black Metal
HammerFall - Power Metal
Dream Theater - Progressive Metal

etc.

idk, cuse then we could get into a genre war
i guess i can see i can make a google doc of the bands in an xcel spreadsheet. that way it can be alphabetized easily.
i also say we knock it from 500....to 100. 500 bands is a fuck-ton.

How about I just rename it to "M&E's Must Hear Metal Artists"?

That way we just go without a number restriction? Originally I thought 1000, but that would be a fuck ton. But I can also rename the blog so if we do have a numerical title we can change it if we exceed the amount posted.

Okay I made a Black Sabbath post. It's not on the blog yet, but this is kinda what I was thinking. Feel free to make suggestions and edits. Each post I make to the blog will be posted here first so we can make sure everyone agrees on it.

Black Sabbath



Formed in 1969, Black Sabbath made the music that is widely considered to be the first in the genre of heavy metal. Black Sabbath's style was composed of distorted guitar work and a very blues influenced progression style, which was often played at a slower tempo. At that time in the late 60's, popular music often reflected themes like peace, love, and anti-war. Black Sabbath was one of the first bands to break through that barrier and adopt darker themes. The original line-up of the band was Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass guitar), and Bill Ward (percussion). Over the years, Black Sabbath would suffer from many line-up changes, adopting new members such as Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan (of Deep Purple fame), Vinny Appice, and Tony Martin. Tony Iommi is the only member of the band to play on every Black Sabbath album.
Black Sabbath's contributions to metal music are many. Recording the first recognized heavy metal album, they are regarded as the first heavy metal band. Black Sabbath has also had major influence over the metal subgenre doom metal, with the name of the subgenre being taken from the track "Hand of Doom", found on the album "Paranoid". The signature sound of Black Sabbath, from the howling vocals of Ozzy Osbourne to the distorted wailing guitars of Tony Iommi, has influenced perhaps every metal band to make music.

Essential Tracks:

Black Sabbath
Paranoid
Sweat Leaf
N.I.B.
Hand of Doom
Children of the Grave
Into the Void
Electric Funeral
Heaven and Hell

Essential Albums:

Black Sabbath
Paranoid
Master of Reality
Black Sabbath Vol. 4
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Sabotage
Heaven and Hell
Mob Rules

Also I'm totally cool with Sabbath because they're just that awesome, but I wouldn't include bands that everyone already knows because it'd be just pointless.

Well the point is the have the best of the best, regardless of how many people know about them. You're welcome to put in all of your own suggestions man, any artist you want to see represented. Also feel free to help edit what I want to post.

I agree, most of their albums are fantastic, but do you think we should keep it limited to a few albums? I wanted to put a few more ozzy era albums and Mob Rules, but I wanted to keep it short. What do you think?

Brute you have ADHD o ADD don't you? I do the same thing.

This is an artists blog, but under the info we have essential songs and albums.

And I'll add that Dies. Are you interested in helping? You could be a great asset man. And Darkflame, I haven't really thought that far ahead yet. I'm thinking about making a topic and each person who is contributing will have 1 post for their recommendations. Every time you have something new to contribute, you edit your post and add it in.

Is there going to be any pattern to the progression of this list? And should we not create the list of must-hear metal artists before starting the posts and elaborations?

I'm not sure, should there be? I just figured we would keep a running list and we could pick one each week, and try to mix things up. I think we should try to have something different each time. Would you like to be a part of this? I'm trying to figure out who's all interested. I think you'd make a fantastic contributor.

Also, do you guys that agreed to help want to have the log in and stuff? I made it just for the blog, and I think it would be cool if you guys wanted access to it to put up your own posts. We just need to make sure we keep things steady and keep posts similar in length and in style. Also we need to make sure we use good grammar on posts, we need this to look pretty professional.

I think it should be one album each day, and we each take turns posting.

One artist* each day?

Or how do we want to do this? I'm open to changing things up. Do you think we should do essential metal albums or something? And we can alternate posts no problem, i thought that would be better anyway.

OK
BRUTE'S TWO CENTS!!!


i say make it a 500 metal ALBUMS you must hear. i mean, albums will be much easier to write about and we can make is about the band as well. but 500 artists is a FUCKING TALL ORDER. i dont speak from experience, but we ill get fed up with 500 artists, most likely.

i say we keep it still weekly, or make it like 2 a week, and post both on the same day, or 3 on the same day. like a newspaper doesnt give out a page each day, the release several pages at the end of the week (metaphor is weak, but you get my idea)

those opposed? those in favor?

and how did ADHD come up in this?

Uhh, despite what you may think, those are metal bands. We're not doing 500 Death Metal bands or 500 Prog Metal Bands. Nu Metal is completely legitimate.

that being said, expect to only see korn representing the nu metal category

Ahahaha, no. Nu-Metal is just hard rock with some "metal influence" (down-tuned distorted guitars)

Also, post shit that doesn't completely suck. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Jesus Christ, agreed.
The bands I listed are legitimate metal bands. I want to put up a variety on this thing. I don't want to just drone on about shitty ambient black metal and old school death metal.
