I admit they use backing tracks to boost their live performances. I think they are incredible guitarists. I saw them live, they put on an awesome performance. I think the pageantry of the music is part of it I guess. I don't see it as faking if the end result sounds interesting and different than the crowd. They still wrote the music. They still played the music. They're not speeding anything up, theyre adding ambiance to their sound in my opinion. Call it faking, I like how it sounds. And I can't create that sound.Its nothing personal man, not an attack on you, and I've said nothing about whether I like the music or not. You said over and over that these guys don't use tracks, they are 100% live, they play everything, etc... I just showed you video of them using guitar tracks live. That's it, no need to get all sarcastic, just admit you were wrong.
I guess I'm not that far off, my band often times has to use a backing track drum track due to sound restrictions. A lot of our sound comes from that in my opinion and i find it really unique in my eyes. I guess yes they could be more transparent about how they make their sound, and that a lot of the insaneness is from the studio and help on stage. I admit all that, and I'm sorry for fighting so hard against it. I just really think the guys put on an incredible show, and even programming all that background stuff has got to be a difficult task to mix in with shredding dicks off live. I'm impressed fake, I'm impressed real.
