Are the Japanese too cute and polite to do heavy metal?

Postby Sri Lanky » Mon Sep 21, 2009 7:44 pm

This is taking the copycat-ism of American culture to dangerously extreme levels. Barry fucking Manilow may as well be singing Iron Maiden. They think that 48 schoolchildren singing a la Sepultura is cool!!!! They SIT in their chairs at concerts!!!!!

Of course the answer is an unabashedly yes.

The Chinese....the Indonesians....for heavy metal it works. The Chinese government should be grateful that all the anger and rage and frustration has found a vent.

But....back to the original question du jour. Why are the Chinese not too cute?...because they can relate to what is essentially Third World lyrics....and which is why black brothers on the fucked up streets of the inner cities fused it into the rock rap genre. I know black dudes,bad brains and all,who secretly like hard metal.

Let me once again state my opinion on the Japanese: they got off easy with just the two nukes.

One of the best metal guitarists I knew during my band days was a Japanese dude. He could rip. My thought is the island that gave us Ninjas is not too cute and polite to get in your face with a couple dozen collections of 100k watt driven 12" round drivers of death.

That being said, there aren't that many true ninjas there and that's the type that's gonna make the best metal player.

After having been immersed in Chinese culture for 10 years, "milquetoast" comes to mind. It seems to be a culture mired in the past. I think the Reds kill off anyone who wanted to do anything outside of the flutes and lap guitar mainstream.

You just have to admire a thread that not only mentions "ninjas" and "heavy metal" together, but contemplates the enormous possibility that a real Nipponese heavy metal guitarist would most certainly have to be a ninja.

I have had the honor of seeing them twice, once in Tokyo back when they started and just last year in Tampa. Unreal how heavy and fast they are.

Yes, but I hate a thread that mentions Barry Manilow and Iron Maiden in the same sentence.

The synchronicity is alive and well. Last friday night I went to an old hole in the wall downtown where they have an internet juke box. Another old fart and myself were playing the old tunes from Master of Reality. If you ever venture to downtown Winterpeg be sure to check out the Vendome Hotel. It's full of the dispossessed. Aboriginals,old metalheads,junkies.....and the ladies. It's midwinter and everyone is sleepwalking.

The hotel is near the Forks but closer to the Forks under the Forks....if you know what I mean.
