    Do you have the links now?

    Overall, it seems to me that the SEA scene is going down the shitter. It seems to be holding on, but fuck that. It should be growing. What's wrong?

    Good to see there are metalheads in India!

    No real ideas! Perhaps if we keep writing shit up here people will see that the forum is active again and will return!

    I worship music, Bruce. I learned about the concept of connection from a sitarist from India. I wonder if we are talking about the same thing.

    Do you mean "worship" in that playing music is a ritual through which you can become a medium for the Great Spririt's message? There is a point in the jam at which you seem to lose control of your fingers and there's this connection which can only be described in the spiritual realm.

    When people dance: beat a drum: blow a horn, perhaps they can reach the same state.

    The problem with European music is that it's structured and controled. The value depends too much on the complexity within a narrow 12 tone scale. The music is too controlled and thus loses its spirituality.

    Spiritual improvisation is exactly what's missing im metal. South Asia, along with the greater Hindu-influenced community, should remind us of that (in my opinion).

    ----------------

    While I'm at it Roots by Sepultura is my first recommendation for Asian metal fans. It's downright tribal.

    Y'all have so much more to offer than you realise. Stand up and show us how it's really done.

    The predominant form of metal in SE Asia seems to be brutal death though!

    Yeh, sort of. There seems to be an abstract nature, however, which could be nurtured into a revolutionary aproach. I've noticed an underlying current in the music from India and Indonesia in particular, which seems to be searching for something more.

    I've thought of another idea about how to tap into that current. We all know that tuning down can give a thicker sound, but it can also allow more extensive bending of the strings. Perhaps tuning way down and bending the hell out of the strings could help with establishing an unique sound about which the locals can get more excited. Also, why not make extensive use of the slide?

    The transition between notes is often more powerful than the notes themselves.

    I don't mean to tell anyone how to play, I'm just making general suggestions. :)

    It would be nice if bands in Asia could blend a bit of their local music into their metal. Nile made it work with Egyptian music (even if they're not Egyptian), so I'm sure other forms would go well with it too.
