School of Metal

A new School of Metal episode every week

We all know that metal rocks. But why? How does really good metal work? How can the performers handle their instruments so well, and what is the secret behind screams and growls? So many questions.
At our EMP x Full Force School Of Metal we get to the bottom of the metal phenomenon. Follow along with our coaches and learn the basics of each instrument. Play your first riff on the guitar, your first bass line or your first rhythm on the drums and learn how to growl so hard the walls shake.
Once a week we present you the secrets of key players from top metal bands. Look forward to lessons from Alestorm, HeavenShallBurn, Saltatio Mortis, Eluveitie’s vocal coach and the tourmanager of Parkway Drive and Boysetsfire an active part of the scene.

It goes without saying that he has experienced a lot during that time. So listen to his anecdotes and find out for yourself whether tour management might be better suited to you than playing an instrument!
