For some Black Metal is the sound of happiness, but most hear dark and dismal band names, guttural singing and appropriately metal guitar sounds howling and screaming in their ears.
That Black Metal sound is made from sinister sounding scales, such as the harmonic minor, and as YouTuber Steve Terreberry proves if you simply change the scales Black Metal can have a happy sound.
At first glance Stevie T might not look like he knows anything about Black Metal, but Stevie T does know that the sound relies on (as he puts it) those evil sounding scales, and his minor change to major scales infuses happy sounds into that bleak sounding nightmare.
So whaddya think musicians? Is Stevie T on to something, or is he oversimplifying the essence of the Black Metal sound?
