Trying to define MaSu
« on: June 18, 2005, 02:23:26 am »
Well, I'm Brazilian. Maybe the only Brazilian 'round here  :P

Anyway, when people at my class ask what style of music Machinae Supremacy is (i have the cover printed that stays in my notebook, you know). My friend even classified it as Nu-Metal, but I don't really think it is.

SiD metal or Videogame Music are also very vague, I was looking for a definition like "progressive-alternative-speed-metal" or something like that. Can you guys help?

Oh, and no, i don't usually post in the forum, but I always read the topics =]

Believing in a zombieman from outer space who is his own father is pretty funny, but that's not what MaSu is about //yas

Well, that's what I think ^^ But depending on my definiton, some people on my class might listen or not to their music :P Right now "they're blind, and my eyes must tell them", but I don't know what to say.

I tell people SID-Metal, when they ask what it is I tell them it's melodic metal with video game-type noises.

yep, same here. If people aren't put off by the word metal (my peer group is mostly into pop music *shudder*) I usually add something about the C64 and the golden age of video gaming.

I think SiD-Metal is the best term you could really come up with to describe it, I think it's a bit pretentious and wanky to go off into the whole progressive-contemporary-melodic-instrumental-experimental-gothic-symphonic-hypnotic-shiggety-shiggety-shwa-jazz-hands nonsense of trying to define a genre while being as elitist as humanly possible :P

Oi! Nothing beats "shiggety-shiggety-shwa-jazz-hands" as a description/definition.. don't be so elitist :P

I always just describe Machinae as "Metal", that's about as descriptive as I get until people ask more :)

Just say SID-Metal, if they don't get it just say alt.rock, works for everything.

Just Melodic Metal, with funky, retro game music synth sounds. :)
