On the subject of metal(music) and tripping....
    #1160906 - 12/21/02 08:01 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I know most of yas here are into the stereotypical floyd/techno/jam band stuff for tunes while tripping, which I too have given a try in the past and likely will continue to do in the future, but IMO none of it I've heard (which is a fair amount contrary to what most will probably think. I have an extremely varied taste when it comes to music.) comes even remotely close to listening to something like Opeth's Still Life, Blackwater Park or Morningrise on a good dose. I love how they mix heavy music/extreme vocals and classical/jazzy/folky acoustic parts with clean vocs. It's all about the dynamics.  You probly wont dig their music if you just like to listen to upbeat, happy music, which is great sometimes, but there's much more to music than that. Also if you're one of those who can't fathom listening to something when you can't understand all the lyrics you probably won't like a lot of it. I've never been much of one to listen to lyrics anywho though, always been more interested in the music going on behind them, and that's where bands like Opeth shine, even though Opeth's vocalist in particular has one of the best clean(singing, not growling) voices I know of in any genre of music.  I'm just mentioning Opeth so much here because they're the band I've been listening to most lately and a perfect example of how metal isn't just power chords and screaming/growling about satan or being pissed-off off key.  But they are by no means the only example of this (suggestions are welcome :smile: )....

I find it somewhat puzzling/depressing that many of the music suggestions I read in here say to stay away from metal at all costs while tripping. Sure, deicide, slayer or cannibal corpse are probably not the greatest idea for music to trip to and best left for pissed off teenagers, but there is some well produced, thoughtful, excellently played metal (Opeth, Novembre, In Flames) out there that makes great listening during a trip. I know metal isn't for everyone and many of you that post in this forum have given great (mostly non-metal) music suggestions in the past, so don't think I'm just some moron trying to say what I listen to most often is the best. I guess I'm just suggesting that some of you (no one in particular, though mainly the metal bashers :smile: ) widen your horizons a bit, and try listening to stuff that everyone and his brother (or sister :smile: ) doesn't listen to when tripping, heh. You might be surprised....

Damn, I guess I'm in the mood to babble tonight, this is probably my longest post ever, I don't know exactly what sparked it, it started as a reply to another thread then I just figured I'd make a new post cause I thought it needed said.  You can blame it on the boredom and lack of smokeables :confused:.  I'll shut up now :laugh: . Peace....

Damn right. The right kind of metal can be pure bliss to endure on trips. I decided to experiment a while back with some music I wouldn't normally listen to on acid. Devin Townsend - Terria blew me away. I mean COMPLETLY. I was glued to the fucking couch the entire length of the album. The kind of metal Dev plays is soundscaped, epic and thoughtful/emotion metal. Sometimes I like a bit of intensity in my trips. And of course, Tool are a great choice for trips, along with Fantomas, White Zombie, Deftones, Earthtone 9, Mudvayne, Mr Bungle.
In fact, I recall listening to some of Dusk and Her Embrace by Cradle of Filth on my first trip. It actually made me grin my fucking ass off!  :grin:

I grew up on acid and metal. Metallica was still cool (sorry I was the metallica generation and everything up th justice for all fuckin rocks). I didn't mind a little Slayer south of heaven on a. Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime has long been a fav trippin or not. I know it isn't realy metal but...

Anyway, I hear ya

I think the music you most enjoy while tripping is simply the music you most enjoy while sober!  I don't understand why a person would say something like "stay away from metal at all costs while tripping" or that same sort of thing about any genre, for that matter.  Is it because they don't like metal?

Just because one person doesn't like something doesn't mean another won't derive great pleasure from it.  Stick to what you like!  :laugh:

You want an interesting trip? Try Melt Banana.

On the techno side try Dark Soho kind of a mix between dark gothic and psytrance.

Opeth is good music. I love metal for its technical guitar playing, but I don't much care for the screaming monotone lyrics. Some of my favorite songs by them include:
- Patterns in the Ivy
- Requiem
- Benighted

Indeed, those are good ones geo.  Check out To Bid You Farewell and Face of Melinda if you haven't already, those are a couple more of their mellow songs.  Good chill music to kick back, relax and toast some bowls to :smile: .  Also A Fair Judgement off of their new album is another one like that.  I d/l'ed some devin townsend tracks today, haven't really listened to them yet, but I've read some good reviews about his albums, so I'm hopeful :smile: .  I knew Tool would come up in here, but honestly I don't really like what I've heard from them.  The last I heard of them was listening to Aenima right after it came out though, I might have to check out some of their newer stuff, it seems like they're pretty much in the "everyone and his brother" category, but I guess they could be worth a listen still :smirk:....  I'll give em another try I suppose.  Thanks for the suggestions :smile: .

Tool - Lateralus is one of my definite all time fav trip albums. It's more psychedlic than their other albums, and a bit more spiritual. Some of the lyrics can actually fit into a psychedelic experience pretty well. :grin:
Ahhh, Devin. My fav albums by him are Terria and Biomech/Ocean Machine, plus his other band Strapping Young Lad rules! :smile:

i agree about the dynamics. right on... if you dig that kind of melding, check out the cancer conspiracy theyre right up your alley... for more droning noise/metal you might like isis or early cave-in, and a fair amount of stuff on the hydrahead label out of boston is really killer... meshuggah for pounding, grinding deathmetal. some of modestmouse's heavier stuff rocks too... something about the vibrations and the bass of metal makes it great to listen to on psychedelics. id rather rock out and feel empowered than skip around on a fieldoffuckingdaisies... but its all got its place in different trips. loop and i once listened to this weird cd of faux imitation hybrid50s/70s pop shit that literally sounded like blandwallpaper, but we were in absolute stitches trying to reason out how ANYBODY would want to be in a band that played this trash. but after a great trip, we realized it was for guys like us hahahahaha

"Imaginary Sonicscape" by SIGH.... just amazing, it's an album you all really have to check out. 80's thrash, prog, classical, jazz, disco, horror film scores, it's all in there and more. It just jumps from place to place so much, perfect for tripping, this album gave me some awesome visuals while tripping.

Yes it does, but I haven't listened to Metallica for a while.

NIN and Dark Soho are both awesome!

i don't know if you consider Tool metal, but i listened to salival while peaking on 4g and it was unbelievable, especially third eye and merkaba.

I listen to alot of trance/breakbeats but sometimes I put on some metal/punk

Try these:

Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, MISFITS, Dark Tranquility, Demons & Wizards and maybe some Darkthrone or Emperor...
