22:56 - Redn1ght Some Psychedelic Metal can get bassy.
22:55 - !J.O.O.E.! Regular earbuds never stay in my ears. I didn't think it was even possible to get good sound quality with those things anyway... - I would honestly say metal is one of the least bass-oriented genres there are.
22:54 - Redn1ght Depends on the genre. J.O.O.E some stuff can get pretty bassy.
22:54 - Erik M. Joe, you're right. The bass is indeed terrible. Very shallow, crappy sound. I don't get claustrofobic (never, actually), but those things black outside noises which is highly annoying and dangerous (if you're travelling, like me).
22:51 - Erik M. Yeah, headphones are probably superior in sound quality, but I like earbuds because they're compact and easily put in/removed. Those in-earbuds are truly the worst ever. Never again will I buy those things.
22:50 - Zaphod Ehm, because usually the bass in metal is very low... So it makes sense that I'd want more bass...
22:49 - !J.O.O.E.! Compared to hip hop metal isn't that bassy.
German metallers Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have just announced the departure of their latest guitarist Lady Cat-Man (who was playing on the band's latest album, entitled "Licht").
According to the band: "She will be replaced by Ady [picture] who will hit the stage with the band soon: for example on this year's Paganfest where Die Apokalyptischen Reiter will light autumnal fires as co-headliners! A new album is planned for 2010."
