but i was assuming you knew what blast beats were... >_>


I actually don't know what blast beats are. For some reason that's a term I never got. Could you explain it. Maybe give me some notation. Like write it out on staff paper or do your best to put it down on mx here. Thanks man.

And to hottiebassplayer, I'm right between a 2 and a 2.5 but after reading a bunch of positive reviews on other websites I figured I'd even out the playing field by rounding down.

If you're being serious, basically it's a speedy as hell beat used mostly in death metal now-a-days. But it's crossed over into more prog metal with stuff like this and even like run-of-the-mill metal.'

It's basically when the drummer plays really fast double bass, alternating the hits on the snare and the ride cymbal or the snare and the hi-hat, or basically the snare and any cymbal. :P

If you want a good idea of what a blast beat sounds like from this band, the beginning of Panasonic Youth is a perfect example.

If you've heard of marco pitruzzella, then he's basically famous for his ridiculous blast beats... it originated in more extreme music. here's a good example.

marco pitruzzella at work.

the first actual blast beat starts at about 25 seconds into that.

If you're being serious


I wasn't. I was making fun of the fact that a lot of people throw around the term and can identify it by ear, but apply it way more liberally than it should be.

Lol, well now i feel like a moron for typing all that up.

CHEERS! :D

and since i'm a drummer, and can personally play songs with blast beats (I.E. Arsis and stuff like that), please don't think I'm one of those people just throwing around the term. XDThis Message Edited On 11.12.07

Ire Works is just sort of poopy by comparison.

Probably could have picked a better word. :lol:

Wow I didn't realize how positive the reviews were until I went here.

Why did you not use "Dire Works" as the summary seriously

It was between Mire Works, Tired Works, and Dire Works obviously. Also I was thinking that intended reading of the album title was "works of anger" but if you treat "works" as a verb as in, "hey using blastbeats works pretty well on that song" it's sort of funny. Like, oh ya being brutal and bring the shred works pretty well, go DEP!

I agree with the Panasonic Youth pt. 2 thing. Every song I heard on here just made me think of that track.
