|Most Influential Bands|
These are the top 10 bands that have influenced me.
I've never thought the idea of mixing Death Metal with Jazz, so when i heard Atheist, I thought it was my favorite band, then I heard Cynic and it blew my mind, because of Cynic I play my bass with a more variaty, basically Cynic did open my mind to other genres.
Without Atheist I wouldn't know Cynic, and it was the first Jazz/Death/Thrash band I've heard
Well, it influenced me to play something more complex and less emotional.
They are the band that got me into hard rock/heavy metal, it got me interested in music.
|5||Alice in Chains|
They taught me that acoustic guitars and heavy distortions can be friends.
When I thought I was good, Dream Theater came, for months I treated them like gods.
They got me into a deeper side of Thrash(not just the so called big four).
Their mix of Thrash/Classic/Neo Classic/Black/Progressive metal style and the unique creativity of King Diamond made MF a big influence in my early days of musician.
They got me into Death Metal, then I discovered their late work(the technical).
I know, most people hate Metallica and others overrate them, but I'm almost sure I wouldn't be playing music if it wasn't for their music.
