I've heard the term before, but dont know what it's about. Can someone give me some examples?
I'm confused about it too... I've heard that Dillenger Escape Plan is math metal, as well as Everytime I Die.
Maybe it's metal for the purpose of education?
Sorry. Cheesy, but I couldn't resist.
I've only heard Tool classified as "mathcore."
Dunno any others, though...
as far as i can tell, its when the guitar, bass and drum play in different time signatures, like the guitar is in 3/4 the bass is in 18/2 and the bass drum is 4/4, etc and it all somehow is supposed to fit...its too smart for me!
complicated time sigs and intense changes. More technically profecient metal.
My buddy's old band called themselves a "mathcore" band. They were a hardcore punk band named "Isolate the Radical".
Holy crap. That is too funny.
Aha.. I love hearing of fellow math geeks.
More or less.
My brother was in a math rock band and this is how he described it to me. "It's when you count how many times you do everything. Play one part 4 times, then the next 5 for example." So I don't think it's because of complicated time signatures. Especially because I've never heard a dilinger escape plan time sig. that wasn't 4/4. But I could be wrong.
I'm not sure I've heard the term "math metal" before, but I have heard the term "mathletes."
Best I know, in a true math rock band, every song is based off of some kind of equation. If its true, doesn't sound like it would make good music.
math rock/math metal
is **** like cave in, dillenger is kind of mathy, but etid is defintely just tight girls pants wearing faggotry.
if you wanna hear some good ****.
cave in, beyond hypothermia. thats math metal.
or, anything that goes, chugga chugga wee wee, chuga wee wee, chugga chugga chugga wee, chugga, wee wee, chugga chugga, wee wee wee wee
How can you have a math-metal thread without mentioning Meshuggah? They're the masters. Amazingly dextrous playing, intense polyrhythms, weird time signatures... bloody great.
It's when a band gets together, but are collectively too stupid to play the same riff at the same time.
Oh, and Ion Dissonance. End of discussion.
I thought that was jazz?
I think all genres need to be included. Iron Maiden is the best History Metal band of all time. And on the basis of songs like 46&2, Tool is Science metal. I consider some King Crimson stuff Arts & Crafts metal.
