    I think it's an interesting concept, but if you were to play some "acoustic metal," I doubt people would recognize it for what it is.

    I think, if it's not even recognizable as metal, then it probably isn't metal.

    No offense, but this sucks balls. Maybe if you made it electric, all instrumental, and made the songs 3 seconds long?

    I got about 30 seconds in, does that make me brutal for being able to listen to it?

    That's nothing! I listened to a whole song and part of a second.
    How fucking brutal is that?

    I like the idea of acoustic metal. actually, I've been playing for ages and had many rehearsals unplugged too, with my friends that are all old metal players and sometimes we had really brutal acoustic jam sessions. I still have some records on tapes... hehe... records on tapes sound ridiculous nowadays, but anyway. the whole fkn box of tapes... I know I better get my ass up to convert them to digital format but have too little time for this. but I know that acoustic metal is possible, very possible.
    recently in one of my bands we experimented with different instruments too. we played metal with brass and winds, with violins, with tambourines, accordion and other instruments. so I think it's very possible to play it with acoustic guitar. lately I heard like one of my friends, a very old and skilled black metal musician played acoustic for his album. this sounded really neat. I wouldn't mind to play such things myself, I like experiments a lot.

    Haha, grandpas guitars. I love acoustic metal. Like Opeth's Damnation album. This is the kind of music me and my friend Tasha are writing. I don't really know what to call it. There is nothing else out there like slow Opeth. You can hardly call it metal though. My boyfriend says the things I write sound like "witch metal". It's just dark sounding acoustic stuff. I'd like to see more of this around, so props to you.

    Now I shall self advertise our Opeth cover...

    I use Ardour myself, but whatever software is used I doubt there's any other way of converting tape records but recording via simple line-in from tape recorder. and then a long time to cut the records to pieces, cleaning up noise, etc. that's exactly what distracts me from that process so badly.

    I dream of buying acoustic bass. like to play bass solo lines with vocal. and if I had a decent acoustic bass I could make some kind of acoustic metal too. my fretless Carvin bass has piezo pickups as well, so it may sound a bit like double bass. but double bass is too huge to me, I guess - so I think about getting acoustic bass like Carvin.
