The only thing I know how to play are 2 turntables (no microphone) and When the Saints Come Marching In on keyboards : )

O.k. so, metal is not my thing. It just isn't.

But...check this out: https://www.cbc.ca/music/heavy-metal-and-classical-music-have-more-in-common-than-you-think-1.5262655

Personally, most of the musicians that I've met and that I admire, whether they be rock guitarists, hip-hop djs, classical fans, etc. all of them, at some some point, come to Brahms.

Here's a little taste from the article:

While the baroque period seems to be particularly fertile ground for heavy metal musings, the Romantics, who were certainly no strangers to dark ruminations, chromaticism, virtuosity and over-the-top drama, certainly provide fodder for modern-day metal. Here's Rachel Barton Pine explaining how Brahms's Violin Concerto in D minor influenced everyone from Van Halen to Scorpions.

So, don't worry about "death metal piano tabs"...it's already been done, about 150 years ago, and it was a "Classical" guy who did it.

Seriously, I know it sounds weird, but Brahms is the man.

Check him out.

p.s. I know the bands listed (as being influenced by Brahms) aren't "death metal", but...it's close enough.

Probably because it's from the 70s and Stranger Things is all about the 80s.

The song is also about a woman dating a man who's cheating on her, but she doesn't care because the sex is so good.

Doesn't really fit, does it?
