Metalhead in Munich: First Post of a big Journey

First Post of a big Journey

Hey Guys!

What's up?

So here it is, the first post of my Baby Blog. I moved to Munich in 2012, and I've struggled a bit the first months finding the Metal Scene. The Scene here is small. Strong, but small. So I've decided to start this journey, to jump in this hidden but powerful world that is the Local Metal Scene of Munich, and to let you know about it.

Here are some information about me, so you can have an idea of what may come next. Or what may not come.

Who am I?

1- I am a  French-Canadian. I write in English. I make mistakes. Deal with it. Although I do write in English, if you are German and you see me somewhere, please come say Hi! in German. It's always a pleasure to talk Goethe's language!

2- I am a Metal Lover. I love it, in its entirety. Heavy, Trash, Death, Power, Black. I don't discriminate. I don't really like our recent need to label and categorize everything. I enjoy the fact that bands experiment and create or define new sub-genres, but these labels we create still stay words. Words are not always accurate to describe Music, since Music is there to feel, not to rationalize. You might say this song is so "Melodic Progressive post-Groove Death", and you're probably right, I don't care. If I feel it Death, I'm gonna say Death. End of the Story.

Who am I NOT?

1-I am not a musician. I don't know all the technical words to describe a tempo or a rhythm. I can't make a difference between the sound of two brands of guitar. I'm just a Fan of what others play.

2-I'm not a specialist. I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of Metal, like some people do. If I write a review, I might write comparisons with things I know, but I won't talk about the very specific sound of this demo album from this band nobody knows from 1984. If you do, tell me, I wanna learn and discover.

3- I'm not a hater. I'm not here to bash. I'm here to enjoy. If I come across a band I don't like, I won't write about it. Bands work their ass off to produce something they like, something that represent who they are. Who am I to arrive and say what they do is shit? I respect who they are and what they do despite the fact their music is maybe not my style. I might not like it, but you, you can love it. I am here to support my Scene, not to destroy it.

Don't hesitate to share bands from your own local Scene in the comments, or tell me what you think!

To start beautifully, here is a cheesy Metal song. Because I like cheesy stuff.







Cheers! \m/
