The essence of metal drumming is creating a loud, constant beat for the band using the “trifecta of speed, power, and precision”. Metal drumming “requires an exceptional amount of endurance”, and drummers have to develop “considerable speed, coordination, and dexterity … to play the intricate patterns” used in metal. A characteristic metal drumming technique is the cymbal choke, which consists of striking a cymbal and then immediately silencing it by grabbing it with the other hand (or, in some cases, the same striking hand), producing a burst of sound. The metal drum setup is generally much larger than those employed in other forms of rock music. Black metal, death metal and some “mainstream metal” bands “all depend upon double-kicks and blast beats”.

Fellowship of the Fridge has been delighting audiences for many years with their exceptional musical skills and engaging personalities. This is a versatile band that plays classics from 60s to the 80s, as well as some current radio hits. If you like the oldies, you’re going to absolutely love this group.
When critics say that they blew The Rolling Stones and The Who off stage you’d think people would stop being idiots and accept the genius of their music and Ronnie Van Zants Vocals however a few of these bands are not classic rock. The top ten best rock bands of all time:
Classic rock was borne out of a radio format that used to be named as “album oriented rock,” also known as AOR. While classic rock leans more on the whole album, “oldies” on the other hand is primarily geared towards singles that became successful on the music charts. You could say that “classic rock” is also a marketing ploy to help “immortalize” sales as well as glowing perceptive memories of rock music from the late 1960s to early 1980s.
With an ominous mood set from the first notes, we know for certain that “the storm is threatening” on the Rolling Stones’ haunting and powerful ‘Gimme Shelter.’ It’s ‘Apocalypse Now,’ in just over four minutes.

CLASSIC is exactly that! The Cream of The Crop. The All Time Favorites. The Greatest Hits of All Time.

Along with new sponsor presentation, it will fix some big signals with in-house resources. Thank you, Fred! Clark, Boston. http://www.broadcastideas.com
Pink Floyd is a classic example of a band that made the astounding transformation from cult rock darlings to a world-famous rock act. Before achieving legendary rock status, Pink Floyd was founded by the offbeat genius Syd Barrett, primarily as a vehicle for his tripped-out inclinations that extended beyond music.
In 1968, three of the genre’s most famous pioneers, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple were founded. Though they came to attract wide audiences, they were often derided by critics. During the mid-1970s, Judas Priest helped spur the genre’s evolution by discarding much of its blues influence; Motörhead introduced a punk rock sensibility and an increasing emphasis on speed. Beginning in the late 1970s, bands in the new wave of British heavy metal such as Iron Maiden and Saxon followed in a similar vein. Before the end of the decade, heavy metal fans became known as “metalheads” or “headbangers”.
