Metallic… Many people hear this word and think of the ass’s rock band with distaste. I hear it and immediately think of the beautiful music that they have made. Metallic Is a long haired, head banging, cussing, rock band. They have dominated the world of music selling millions of albums and influencing people all over the world. Back in the ass’s Metallic was a heavy metal rock band. Most people thought they were a disgrace to musicianship, vulgar and obscene.
In truth cost of this is correct, and yet Metallic also managed to make beautiful music, sometimes playing the guitar and the drums so skillfully and timed just perfectly that they would sound Like one Instrument. Their guitar playing was so hypnotize that you could sit and listen to it for hours at a time. They could make you angry with one song and calm you to the point of sleep with the next.
The lyrics to Metallic songs are very disputed, sometimes you might not even understand what they are saying and yet still get the feeling that they are trying to promote, in other cases you might hear what the words are but not understand the point of what they are saying. For example in the song Saint Anger the lead singer is singing about how his anger builds up to the breaking point and then when it reaches the limit his anger explodes without even stopping to think about the consequences or the might have later.
In the song “One” it is hard to understand what he is saying except he part where he speaks about a war veteran who lost his eyesight, hearing, and rowers of speech when he stepped on a landmine. In the last few years Metallic has drastically changed their image. Gone are days of long hair and swinging heads while playing the guitar gone are the many curse Norms and gone is the head banging edge of their music. Because of this, many of their oldest fans have stopped buying their new albums and Just listen to some of Metallic many older albums.
