I just came up with the best idea.

You mix one bands sound with another band, and the result is the closest you can think of. And then the next person takes that band and adds another one!

Blind Guardian + Running Wild = Grave Digger

So next one is; Grave Digger + ??? = ???

Let's go!

(if somebody is creative you can use minus and mutiply and shit too, haha)

Huh, sounds like a fun idea.

Grave Digger + Darkthrone = Inquisition

Spoiler: show
Since not everybody here has exactly the same reference pool, perhaps we should post a representative song or something...

I never thought I'd see a comparison of Def Leppard and Primordial, let alone the two bands in the same sentence.

Are you kidding? Averill talks about to his stylistic ties to old hard rock/hair metal music all the time...

I dunno. The general emotional mood of Primordial's music is clearly quite different to hard rock/hair metal stuffs. Primordial's songs are grim and bleak, where Def Leppard and Motley Crue are exciting and happy. I think that, however, that they go about achieving their two vastly different emotional aims through somewhat similar means. Both Def Leppard and Primordial are primarily driven by ballsy riffs, rousing individual moments, and a generally inclusive spirit. (Alan Averill talks about that, along with a whole lot of other pretty interesting stuff here)

A quote on the topic from another interview (It's not a particularly massive explanation or anything, it's just something I could easily find where Averill references to being influenced by Def Leppard)

Quote:
I wanted a big chorus – which is partly my Def Leppard/Dokken influence! – but with some depth to it."
(from this article)

Yo, this is dope, but anything not related to adding should be done in spoilers a la Cards - like the way we do in the review game thread.

Primordial + Dissection = Dark Fortress

Lemmy says Motörhead aren't metal. He's wrong. So is Alan.

question, can we subtract, like, let's say to make things easier to do, Dark Fortress - Melody = ? or something of the sort? That could be cool.
