Music appreciation Guided study Memo and Death Metal One of my least favorite types of music Is Memo music. The Memo genre shares Its roots with many other musical genres of today. Its emotional roots come from the ass’s from bands like the Cure, and the Smiths. After nearly twenty years of developing, Memo has become a major genre in today’s musical society. The genre is based on capturing man’s emotional pain and putting it into lyrics; hence the title of Memo meaning emotional.
The most established type of pain in Memo is the pain of failed relationships between these male singers and the women in their lives. The artists present themselves from a lifeless position to display the pain women cause. “She’s the blade and I’m Just paper” a lyric from the band Sugarcoat, shows the emotion that the men place In their lyrics. The woman is the one that cuts him up; the woman Is the one who Is causing the problems.
Sugarcane Is an American rock band from Santa Barbara, California formed In 1998. The band currently consists of Tim Poignant who sings lead vocals, and plays rhythm guitar, ARIN Older who plays bass guitar, and sings backing vocals, Marko Descants who plays lead guitar, and Kenny Livingston who plays drums. A band that shows the portrayal of men as the victim in the game of love is Taking Back Sunday. Taking Back Sunday is a rock band from Imitatively, NY, formed in 1999 by guitarist Eddie Rexes.
Current members of the band are Adam Lazar who sings lead vocals, John Nolan who plays and sings lead guitar, back-up vocals, Eddie Rexes ho plays rhythm guitar, Shawn Cooper who plays bass guitar and Mark O’Connell who plays drums. They fit right in with normal Memo genre, preaching “Don’t call my name out your window I’m leaving. I’m sick of writing every song about you. ” Every time lead singer Adam sings this line he cries on stage. Have you ever heard of a genre of music so extreme it has been blamed for everything from the burning of churches to the murder of fellow band members? Well that music is commonly known as Death Metal.
Because of the extreme measures set by the bands most of he bands are banned from not only touring in some countries but also from their records being sold for being deemed too extreme for the general public. With music about death, Destruction and overthrowing popular religions, it’s not surprising that it is sometimes considered one of the most gruesome, heaviest and most explicit genres of metal. Lamb of God Is an American death metal band from Richmond, Virginia. Formed In 1994, the group consists of vocalist Randy Blithe, guitarists Mark Morton, Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler.
The band Is considered to be a part of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal movement. Since Its formation, Lamb of God has released six studio albums, one live album, one compilation album and metal and for that reason I like them more the any other death metal band. Rather than other death metal bands such as My Dying Bride that sing only death metal. My Dying Bride who’s band members are Aaron who sings vocals, Andrew and Hams who play the guitar, Lena who plays bass, and Shawn who plays both keyboard and violin.
My Dying Bride was formed by Aaron, Andy, Calvin and Rick in the summer of 1990, and after only six months of writing together released the now legendary demo Towards the Sinister. Progress continued apace with the release of their first seven” single God Is Alone for the small French label Listenable. The single sold out almost immediately causing eager whispers in the underground, bringing them to the attention of Peaceable Records, who offered the band a deal. This band is disturbing and tasteless in my opinion and only sings this type of metal.
