I'm trying to come up with a new style of music: I want to call it "surreal metal." I'm attaching a song I think is compatible that I came up with today; no lyrics yet. Any suggestions on how to be more typical?

Not to be a dick or anything but to me it just sounds like the level of skill/experience that I'm hearing doesn't quite seem like where it should be to take on a goal of such magnitude (to create a new style of music). Know what I mean? It's like a guy rides freight twice and he wants to reinvent the CCG. I'm no guitar aficionado myself though, so what the fuck do I know. People who have invented amazing ground breaking shit were told they couldn't do it. So, take any negative feedback with a grain of salt. I do think you might want to start with something other than a steel string acoustic though.

It started out as acoustic melodic death metal, but then I decided I wanted to get into surrealism. Also, I have been playing on and off for 10 years and I could theoretically fret and pick as fast as I type, which can be over 200 wpm without typos. Im just trying to develop in a new direction and I havent gotten totally comfortable with it yet.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
