Unida? I've never heard of them, and YouTube isn't helping that much. What the hell is wrong with that page today :x?!

It's the vocalist from Kyuss, after they went under in the early 90s he tried to start again with Slo Burn, and that didn't get signed. Unida was his next band, recorded two albums, released one, got cut again, now he's in Hermano. Of the three (Not counting Kyuss), Unida is the best.

Well I liked some of Kyuss's songs, but the fact they are active again isn't gonna be a problem for this project, if it's a parallel one?

Nah, Buckethead just sucks, why would I care how many he sells?

Dancing is a series of motions, and while 'a motion' is pronounced very similarily to 'emotion', they are nowhere near the same thing, my friend.
It is a fact that people with little to no creativity can make stuff on computers.

Electronic music is some hard genre to understand, as many people like you feels the same way because of the fact "it is not technically real music". What can I say? I enjoy some of the compositions they do: They can be quite unexpected you know?

About Coldplay, I don't care what you guys say, but :puke:
Some might be good, but to express feelings through electronic music is a lot harder, so only great musicians succeed in that, and most electronic 'musicians' are on the same level of a monkey throwing his shit at a xylophone.

According to urban dictionary:
A troll is one who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument
Let's say you're a kind troll if that makes you feel better :lol:

Yeah, but if you write crappy songs and call yourself Applehead, you won't be famous. :<

Maybe you won't agree with me, especially Balu, but in metal there is a lot of dancy (i don't want to use "dance" related to genre) music. During Sabaton gigs I feel like on a disco. No emotional solos, maybe sometimes lyrics, but mostly is a simple rhythm, easy to sing, easy to dance. Early Nightwish, some Helloween, Hammerfall.

Where is the difference between electronic and ambient? It is a slightly difficult question.

And to adrian9: although I appreciate Buckethead, how many CD someone saled is a controversial thema. So it shouldn't be the main argument in discussion, but of course one of few.

of course balu doesnt only live in a world when the only good bands are the ones that he likes.., he also lives in a world where people are stiff as an corpse....like him maybe?

to me, dance (in any kind of dance, that is from indian to modern dance) is the most instictive,natural,animal,etc,.... way to create, and as such mthe most direct connection to whatever in the human body got the "grace" of creation....furthermore, is a common thing dancing when you are happy, won the lottery, ceremonial rites, etc etc...

it might not be a "metal" thing, but then again, what the hell???

yeah of course!! I mean, remember when sharpnel records released a ton of instrumental Shred guitarrist...some of them were out of this world, and you might say they were better that buckethead, and shit , I would AGREE!!

but where are those guys now? some of them got jobs, some others didnt make it, and started working at starbucks. so you might be good but if you dont sell records , you are out of the game, doesnt matter how frikkin awesome you are.

and, Balu might hate BH, but he is been around for so many years, and I think balu is going to keep on hate-ing BH for a long long time, and along that way we might see some bands dissapeared. (maybe our favorites ones)

I feel pity now for the people that hates the beatles. :lol:
