At some point I found a band I liked and had their stuff on Spotify. But I've lost access to that account and now my old brain can't remember the name of the band at all. I feel like they might have changed their name after their second/third album? For some reason Bisou or something French feels right to me, but searching that hasn't helped at all. Thanks for your help!
Was wondering the fandom's take on this.
Do you lean towards being a fan because of her knack for catchy hooks, or a fan first and foremost of her lyricism?
With me and music in general - and to quote Billie Eilish:
“I'm such a melody wh*re. I just… God, melodies really get me"
Echoing her sentiment, I do get attracted to melodies first. I've been doing casual cherry picking of her melodic tracks from Fearless to Red. But when 1989 came out, it was earworm after earworm - with Out Of The Woods making me totally adore her!
Folklore and Evermore kinda went into the unconventional route of pop hooks, but her catchy blueprint is still evident!
Going back, kinda feel lost sometimes on some posts as everyone in the sub are mostly deepdiggers of her lyricism and lyric references. Am I in the minority? 😅 As I dream to be a producer of sort in the not so near future, maybe it's a "producer" thing 😁
The Melodic Minor Scale is one of the 3 minor scale patterns, the other two being the natural minor and harmonic minor. A minor scale refers to any heptatonic scale in which the first, third, and fifth scale degrees form a minor triad.
The ascending melodic minor scale can be notated as:
>1, 2, ♭3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
While the descending melodic minor scale is:
>1, 2, ♭3, 4, 5, ♭6, ♭7, 8
Another way to think about the ascending melodic minor scale is as a diatonic major scale with a lowered third, for example, C–D–E♭–F–G–A–B–C.
The scales that result from the modes of the ascending melodic minor scale are essential to jazz improvisation and in this post, I will give you an overview of what these scales are and how you can begin to use them.
The seven modes that are obtained from the melodic minor scale are as follows.
^(W = Whole step h = Half Step for more clarification on intervals) ^(click here.)
To understand how we can use these modes to create unique sounds, it's important to first understand what chord qualities are associated with each of the modes. Similar to how we associate chord qualities with the scales of the church modes (ii, Dorian, IV, Lydian) to understand what scales fit over what chords, we can begin to create a dynamic, exotic and jazzy melodic/harmonic vocabulary by using the chord qualities associated with each mode of the Melodic Minor Scale.
^(If you are feeling confused by this table, I recommend brushing up on your) ^(chord names.)
|Mode||Associated Chord (in C)||Scale|
|Melodic Minor||Cmin6 or C-6||C–D–E♭–F–G–A–B|
|Lydian Dominant||F7 (or F9, F7#11)||F–G–A–B–C–D–Eb|
|Mixolydian b13||G7 (or G9, G7b13)||G–A–B–C–D–Eb–F|
For me....Bass is not background. it is not a utility role that supports the guitarist. It is front and center. Justin Chancellor, les claypool and victor wooten are all my hero's of bass.
I used to play quarter notes in rock bands. This song changed my worldview way back when
What song (or songs, we can all be indecisive lol) do you find perfectly define what "melodic death metal" means in your eyes? for me it is Thor Arise by Amon Amarth (Cannibal Sodom by Intestine Baalism is a close second however.) It really perfectly blends OSDM with melodically written riffs and the pacing is just perfect. Very excited to hear what yours all are!
His speedy flow on the chorus with the autotune is fucking godly. He literally sounds amazing in this song and lil baby is for sure an unexpected match with Joyner, but he also sounds amazing over this beat
I think this may top I Don’t Die as my favorite Joyner song. I’m serious, I listen to it like 10 times a day
That's all I have to say, really. It's such a great little moment.
Any other tiny details you guys love?
FMTY-esque and maybe keep the beat switch up but not a diss track
I bet you know fenomenal songs!
Let me preface this by saying he is my favorite artist and number 2 lyricist of all time only behind 3 stacks. Homie has bars, flow, and delivery for days, and I love that shit. But where he really shines the brightest IMO is in the more "Melodic Rap" songs. My favorite song off Love story was Till its gone. Favorite song on TBF(and my all time favorite song) is Row your boat. Favorite song off of GCB is Opie Taylor. And It needs a few more listens but so far Dope is my favorite off MM.
in 4/4 time, i beamed a measure like this:
quarter note, 4 eighth notes beamed tgt, quarter note
it's not rhythmically wrong, but the eighth notes shouldn't be beamed together like that. will they take off points for it?
Name bands that play same melodic style crust punk than Tragedy
Hi lads, hope you're all keeping well, just wanted to ask if you've any ideas for me to check out bands with more melodic vocals in a similar vein to Bad Brains or Gorilla Biscuits? I love the hard hits and dirty riffs of hardcore but after a while the simple shouting starts to grate on me ever so slightly with all the new bands I check out 😩 or tell me to fuck off and just listen to punk rock if I want melody haha... Anyway... Thanks if there's help to be had here 👍
After I discovered Black Hole Sun by The Acacia Strain and now To The Grave releasing a cover of The Ghost of You this is one of my favorite things in the genre.
Do you know any other ones like that?
Basically I'm asking for symphonic metal, but with bands that use growls as well. Something like Epica and Unlucky Morpheus
Here's an example for what I'm looking for
