Doom metal sped up 2x
So as some of you already know, even though I like gothic/doom metal, I do this thing where I change the tempo really slow doom metal songs by 2x to get them to the speed I desire. And I know that some of you don't like that because you consider it "blasphemous" to doom metal, but it's not like I'm doing this to ALL doom metal songs, just some. I'm sure other metalheads who like the faster metal genres might enjoy this. This video I've just made and uploaded is for those faster metalheads and also for doom metal "perfectionists" to at least try and see if these versions are any better. Enjoy!
I'll leave that to you Andi. I can't really see the point as it's nullifying the despondency that the slower tempos are intended to create in my opinion.
Doom Metal, particularly the more extreme sub-genres such as funeral doom is paced to create a specific atmosphere of mournfulness, sorrow and desolation. It is impossible for me to grasp why you would want to nullify the artist's intention and the overriding purpose of the music. If you really don't like the music as produced and it's intended atmosphere why would you bother listening to it at all? This doesn't make any sense to me. Would you change the colours on the Mona Lisa because you like orange more than brown? I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but I really don't get where you're coming from here. I've also got a feeling the band's involved will probably be none too amused if you are altering their music and posting it online.
Technically, remixing and uploading without the copyright holder's consent IS actually a crime. And if you think I wouldn't yell anything rude at the radio then you don't know anything about me!
I will leave this alone now Andi, but I presumed that as you had made a post on an internet forum that you were interested in interaction from others. Now I will always give my honest opinion, so if you are offended by it I apologise and will bear this in mind for any future discussions.
I enjoyed the majority of this month's Metal Academy Radio "The Fallen" Playlist enough to try a different variation with it. That's right, another 2x sped up doom metal playlist video!! The playlist works almost as well as a typical album but double its length; a good amount of songs in typical lengths plus a supermassive epic finale, kinda like the Eternal Woods Doom Metal Compilation. However, there are some differences; I included the "Marching to the Heartbeats" intro to Cult of Luna's "Finland", and I had to replace "Natasha" with a different but still over half-hour long track because that song was blocked due to copyright and I didn't feel like it fit well the style anyway. You can probably guess what that song is by watching the video or based on one of my suggestions I'm gonna request tomorrow for next month's playlist. Remember, even though some of you might not approve of the whole "doom metal sped up 2x", I'm doing this for fans of faster metal genres. This video I've just made and uploaded is for those faster metalheads and also for doom metal "perfectionists" to at least try and see if these versions are any better. Enjoy!
I thought I'd give this a go and listened to the Shape of Despair track.
Takes away everything that's amazing about it, leaving an unlistenable and ineffective mess. Each to their own I guess.
