Christian, u mad bro?

Honestly, I love SoP, Necrophagist and Obscura...so basically everything he has been involved in. I understand what people are saying about preferring Karlsson in SoP though - Christian has a distinct style that perhaps isn't so 'unique' now as Obscura put out their latest last year.

Can't get so butthurt over people's opinions. They're like assholes Christian, everyone's got one...

Wow Christian, I once defended you and your writing on this board, sigh, alienating your fans....

Making SMN famous and pissing off his fans simultaneously, GUESS WHO WINS HERE?!?!

Wow, people really seem to hate me with a passion on the SMN Death Metal Forums. Like it kinda has become trendy there to knock my playing whenever something new is released that I play on. So, I'm sorry I'm not up to those people's elitist musical understanding, maybe next time I'll let those guys teach me how it's done. But wait, that would mean that they would need to get off their computers and get a life first

Hmm. That's too bad. Other than noticing the song generally slays, my first impression of the new material was that I enjoyed his soloing.

We should put together a compilation thread containing all the hate this board has gotten from pissed off musicians. Quick, find your favorites. Make it look like a list of book blurbs or testimonials. Best sticky idea ever.

Also, Dear Christian,

Lots of us like your playing. It's a matter of style; we realize that you know what you're doing. Not personal, not a big deal.

I posted this on his fan page where I hope he will see it, since his personal FB profile only accepts messages from friends (probably 'cause he clearly hates his fans and doesn't wanna hear from them)

Quote:
We (@SMNforums) are a group of individuals, each with different opinions. Believe it or not, some of us appreciate your work in both current and past bands. That being said, it is unfair for you to badmouth us as a whole because you disagree with what a few people have said about your work. Those are the opinions of individuals, not the forum as a whole. If I were you, I wouldn't read the board until you can handle people's criticism or simply not read it, but you are an artist, and people are going to critique you all over the internet (if you ask me, the criticism wasn't even that bad, you totally overreacted). Might I remind you one of your band mates posts everyday on the board, and the site hosts the SoP forums? Traffic on the board affects the future of ALL the different forums, not just Death Metal Discussion. It is not free to host these forums, even the SoP board. Frankly, most of us are probably fans of you or at least one of your bands to one degree or another. But I will not make the same mistake YOU did, which would be to judge your entire band(s) because of your little fit, they will still have my support. That being said, you've succeeded in alienating some of us, and you've LOST me as a loyal fan today because of your bad attitude, good job.
As you can see, I tried very hard to redirect his butt-hurt back at him. Hopefully he'll get the idea and next time he want's to be a cry baby about someone's critique, he'll make an account here and log on and address that INDIVIDUAL, rather than all of us, some of whom like at least some of his work. Fuck, I don't even like tech-death that much, but i like SoP, the first Obscura album, Necrophagist, etc. Part of the problem is how NOT down to earth the musicians can be in those sort of bands.

Erland, do us all a favor and just keep Danny in the band after the tour and don't bother with this asshole who lurks forums waiting for one person to say they don't prefer his style, and then publicly talks shit about all of us.

Dude obviously can't get over the fact that he wasn't part of the best Necro album. I used to work at the laundromat his mother brought his piss-stained sheets to, about the same timeframe. Two and two.

Fuck that back paddling, he's clearly a skilled guitarist and all, but I want to make it clear for him, if he is still reading this thread:

Karlsson >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> you imo

That dude had a uniqe choice of notes and an exceptional overall style, something you won't get by knowing this and that scale so well you could do it in your sleep.

With that said, I like your soloing on those new SoP tracks a lot more than in Obscura, however I obviously prefer Karlsson and there's nothing wrong with that.

What a dick. He's gonna attack and generalize a bunch of people when many of those same people have only offered positive statements on his playing. i wish i had half the skill set he has but doesn't mean you can attack all of smn as a whole. This being said karlsons leads > what i have heard so far out of Christian.

People, you have to realise that ego is the primary component of almost every shredder, and although he plays in tech-death bands that's basically what he is first and foremost.

Muenzer fits nicely into the 'mad skills/pooey solos' category, like many before him.

Karlsson doesn't.

HEY CHRISTIAN DONT GET UPSET MAN I PERSONALLY LOVE THAT YOU PLAY THE SAME MINOR ARPEGGIOS AND RUNS WITH ZERO DYNAMICS REGARDLESS OF CONTEXT AND MOOD.

i must say that these songs sound really good

the writing is pretty fun to listen

they made the guitar tone a bit heavier but not enough to make it sound muddy

the bass is there but it is surprisingly unfartbasslike
0:32


very nice songs

It is common (and clearly what is happening here) yet doesn't apply to all of them. Some are humble and also have enough self-esteem they don't get butt-hurt. I've even seen Erland ignore people talking shit about his band, he just acted like he didn't see it, 'cause he doesn't need anyone's approval, he's proud of himself but doesn't let it go to his head. Christian has really surprised me with his inability to do the same.

You can have all the skill/technique in the world, but if you musicianship sucks (meaning your ability to work with others, take criticism, get back on the horse, and be confident but also ambitious, and generally how you carry yourself as a musician, meaning everything that doesn't fall into skill/technique and cannot be learned in a book) you're not gonna get ANYWHERE, or even if you do (which he has), you piss people off the entire way, be they fans or other musicians, and it always comes back to bite you in the ass.

Personally, I enjoy contrasting styles in bands like this and if anything, would've liked to see them trading off and playing together on the same album, not sure if there's room for Christian's ego though in that scenario.
