I think metal and classic music are so similiar everybody i know who listen to metal like classic music and also generally classic music lovers like metal music i like classic music as metal
In metal music first you think there is a big chaos and complexity but then you noticed it isn't like that it is very organized some people think that for classical music too
Metal is not a young style of music is not abaout 45-50 year old i think metal's root comes from classic music
Like classic music lovers metal has elite fans
what do you think abaout it ?

Interestingly enough, studies have shown that metalheads and fans of classical music tend to have very similar Big 5 personalities, the main difference being on neuroticism, where metalheads were likely to be neurotic, while classical fans emotionally stable, and outside of those scores the largest difference was merely the age difference, classical fans were older. Of all the different groups, they were the most similar.

Anyway, metal has similarities to classical music, especially certain subgenres, and it takes more from classical music than most popular genres, but at the roots metal is "pop music", and classical is "art music". I saw an article once where a metalhead explained all the ways metal was different than classical music and how classical music was superior in terms of complexity, but I can't seem to find it.

Classical was originally popular music i.e. popular music for Europe's aristocracy.


Classical music was never considered popular music, even when it was popular among aristocracy. That is exactly what made it art music back then.

I feel like i should leave this here...

This post has revealed to me that there are an additional three tracks on Portal I did not have (as my friend burned it for me). This is a tremendous discovery, a happy man am I!

Cannot wait to listen to this masterpiece in its entirety, but shall start at the beginning as was intended.

Beethoven has as much claim, and he did it first.

Yeah, I think some classic rock had an influence of metal....Rock is what I started off with before I dived into metal...I am thinking of folks like Eric Clapton, The Beatles, The Doors for example....8-]]
