Post Searching for fucking Metalheads in Vancouver
Hey everyone!

I am from Germany and going to study in Vancouver starting in January 2010.
I would like to check out the Vancouver Metal scene and search for crazy metalheads who can give some tips where to rock best! :badger: Anyone out there?

Here some of my favourite bands:
*Machine fucking Head
*Slipknot
*Hatebreed
*Chimaira
*Otep
*Pantera
*Soilwork
*Soulfly
*Ill Nino
and many more! :)

Of course it would be cool to get to know some Canadian bands as well!


Throw the horns and stay tuned!
Petra

Welcome to the board! :horns:

There are a lot of great metal bands here in town - check out the Member Bands section for listings of some of them, along with links to their webpages/MySpace/Facebook with demos and such, and the West Coast Music Scene section for show listings.

What are you coming here to study? The rain?

Thanks for the Welcome and the info! :)
Great to have a platform like this to get into the Vancouver Metal scene! :)
Hopefully there will be little less rain over there than here in Cologne...?! :? I'll study Business Administration at the Fairleigh Dickinson University, but just for one semester (from January to May). Thats why I am already trying to get to know something about cool locations, concerts, must-have-beens and Canadian bands to save some time! ;)

:peep: I don't know that the rain here would be less than Cologne, probably more, but it depends a lot on what time of year it is.

Welcome to the board. We're having major rain here right now, probably more than Cologne. BTW if you stick around here long enough I'm sure you may be schooled on what the locals here consider real metal, and most on your list doesn't apply - no offense!!!! I'd like to see your 'and many more ' list!
Hope you love Vancouver as much as I do, it's really pretty cool here. Many of the usual north american tours stop here so we get lots of great stuff. as was said before, just check the monthly calendars in the West Coast Scene forum. If people say 'Im going to that show' and you want to meet them, just send them a private message (PM) and maybe hook up before/at a show.

Post Re: Searching for fucking Metalheads in Vancouver
Man, I am really looking forward to visit Vancouver for a longer term! I have heard so much about it. It's supposed to be a great city! Vancouver is new to me but I already visited BC for three times. Okay, the first and second time I was really young, but the last time was about eight years ago. I stayed in really small place "close" to Kelowna. It was overwhelming! The Rocky Mountains are breathtaking! Since then I wanted to go at least one more time to Canada! :D
But I am also a little nervous...

Yeah, Verbalsniper already told me that my list is not so popular here... I am a little surprised, but thats okay! ;) I already told him that I am always searching for new stuff.

Here some more bands I like:
Fear Factory, Down, Krypteria, August Burns Red, Born from Pain, Steel Death, Dead Head Down, Rammstein, Rage Against The Machine, Soil, Drowning Pool, Volbeat, Sepultura, Opeth, Stuck Mojo, Biohazard, In Flames, As I Lay Dying, Lamb of God, Five Finger Death Puch, Dry Kill Logic, Emil Bulls, Evergreen Terrace, Callejon, Killswitch Engage, The Haunted, Neaera, Misery Speaks, Sonic Syndicate, Trivium, Unearth, Walls of Jericho, Epica, American Head Charge, 4Lyn, Dope, Mudvayne, Spineshank, Static-X, Stone Sour, Arch Enemy, Amon Amarth, Dir En Grey, Children of Bodom, Metallica, Atreyu, √úbergas
... and many more? :lol:

And, yes, I know... lot of Metalcore-shit among :facepalm1:
And yes, the official outing: most I hear at the moment is Nu Metal, Metalcore, Crossover
... I am sorry! ;)
But I hope that I will be allowed to participate at this board anyway?! :P

BTW: Check out www.rockinvasion.de ! Thats a german WebTV magazine with lots of interviews (most in english). I filmed for them until I had no longer time since last month.

Thanks for the invitation to contact you guys in case of :horns: and :beerbang: !

:cheers:

Probably won't come as much of a surprise, but pretty much everyone here has their own "guilty pleasures" in music that they'd never admit to here. The fact that you list it outright with no apologies means you have bigger balls than probably 75% of the board regulars :pokehit:

(And yes, I like Kylie Minogue, so fuck you all! :bigfinger: )

Some interesting choices. Saw your post on the Arch Enemy thread. I lived in Vancouver for a bit so I'm changing it up and going to Seattle for this show. One of the great things about where Vancouver is-it's very accessable to a lot of other places: Victoria/Nanaimo/Vancouver Island, Seattle/Portland in the US, and Whistler(too bad it's during the Olympics). You should be able to find many shows to keep you busy if you put in a bit of geek time.

And ya, this board is a great resource. You should also make sure to check out:

Thanks for the links! Contain lot of information! :)

The cities you mentioned will be visited by me, too, of course! ;) I will have three weeks left after finishing with exams. Thats when I want to travel most...although that's not very much time for such a big country!

So, you like those bands you quoted, too?

Ya, for the most part, I've listened to them and understand why others would like them. And yes, we do live in a huge country. But with 3 weeks, you should be able to get around this half pretty well. It's awesome you could do this thru your school-must make it a lot easier.

And for the record I've actually been listening to a tonne of spoken word stuff in the downtime. Mostly while geeking out on photo art stuff. Buddy Wakefeild is pretty brilliant:

And so is this local artist:
