Oh man I remember Doomcifer. I wish some people would come back..
He was still on RC until lately, now he's gone though.
That makes no sense at all, unless you're saying that a person can only have a certain 'education' or tastes in metal because of this forum which is ludicrous there are people here like myself who are old.
You've found no new music due to other people during your time on this website? I'm skeptical.
Is someone showing you new stuff within a genre or style that you already like (what happens here the most is this) really the same as influencing someone?
That depends I guess, if you are quite new to a style but already worship a couple of bands but get alot of new recs I think that is some kind of influence, but a trusted veteran of a genre being introduced to a new band or two, not really.
I think JontRevolting definitely falls on the latter.
Is finding new music the same as being influenced by a certain person?
Technically, yes. I'm also pretty sure anyone who has been here for several years has found several new things through this site. I'm not sure why that's so hard to admit for old timers.
Personally, I feel it's more so I see someone post cool album art and check out the music. That said I know it happens but It's probably less one individual person consistently influencing another so much as the forum picking up on something from an individual, the album/artist picks up steam and the total mentions of it influence the board as a whole in a sort of communal appreciation.
There's this band called Warrant, and they have this amazing tune called Cherry Pie - check it!
Now that I think about it, a good handful of you influenced me with black metal.
And getting you to check out some doom metal if I recall.
Yes but that's at the bottom of my list currently.
This is probably out of your comfort zone, even if you like extreme prog. There's a chance you might like it though?
Precisely. I joined the forum when I was 14, and various members greatly shaped my taste in music. There's no shame in admitting it; that's precisely why forums exist.
i'm pretty sure it was you @Addo_Of_Nex who caused my love for ares kingdom, so can never fault you ever due to that
I will listen to that after I fulfill the mixtape review responsibility I've been shirking for a week. I guess I could just let you know after I listen to it but fuck it I'm halfway through my post now.
Dodens - traditional doom, heavy/power/speed metal
Malignance - old school death metal, black metal
Master Yoda - traditional doom
GoD - good insight into certain bands/albums spanning the entire genre
Omni - same as above
Cythraul - good taste while being unreasonably nit picky in the most humorous way possible
The rest of you suck.
