    It's not all about the instruments however. I don't appreciate Mozart because he could play piano.

    My point was, that "talent" doesn't necessarily mean your technical ability with an instrument. Most tech-death bands are technically super-talented, but their songwriting ability is basically non-existant (of course there are exceptions like Obscura, who in addition of being very talented with their instruments, they can also make GOOD SONGS).

    Song writing is more like creativity imo.

    Quite a semantic difference :lol: But yes, it takes creativity to come up with good melodies etc, but to arrange the song and the different instruments properly, think of the overall soundworld etc. is a completely different story, and requires a talent of it's own. Many bands have that problem; they have great individual riffs/melodies, but have no idea how to structure a song or choose right guitar-sound and the song ends up sounding like shit. Mere creativity isn't enough.

    he also doesn't like the keyboards in their songs and says COB isn't "real" metal. he only likes the kind of metal where it's constant shrieking, guitars that sound like they're in pain, or lyrics that sound like someone's just vomiting into a microphone.

    The persons who do not like CoB have no musical taste. It has nothing more to say there.
    Their control of instruments is perfect.

    Pfff... That's not because they don't like CoB that they "have no musical taste".
    They just have a different taste in metal or in music in general.
    Grow up.

    You're right, if someone doesn't like the melodies of COB at least on a basic level the person has no musical taste. The vocals and general metal riffs are a matter of taste tho, and solos a matter of "education." I'm very open minded person but not open minded enough to accept someone honestly hates everything about COB.

    Hmm, none of my friends like COB, but most of them have a great taste in music.

    I like how some people think that if you know your instrument it automatically makes you a great composer. Well newsflash, it doesn't.

    I detect spelling fail.

    And nice to see some good ol' Belphegor on CoB forums :D

    There is a major difference between Rap and Hip Hop.

    First of all, rap is pop, it is more of the new school of it. It is the " Yo, NiGGA, PUSSY and SWAG" shit. Most of it is made under the giant Puff Daddys of Dr. Dre crew. So rap sucks in general.

    Hip hop is good, you have really good influence in it. Generally, lyrics have a good meaning. It is really catchy and gives a good feeling after listening to it.

    But you probably knew that, I hope.:cool:

    Define that basic level of musical taste. Do I have no taste in food if I dislike lobster? Or horse shit? Well it's a matter of ..wow.. taste, too and it's pretty dumb to say that someone has no taste in music just because this person likes different styles/melodies. Because, even on that basic level,even if these melodies were brought into different genres, still some people wouldnt like it. There is no rule for having a good taste in music and if there was one, I bet it wouldnt be ''workship the melodies created by thy master alexi or your taste is doomed''
