Death metal fans might want to check out this YouTube channel that streams music created in a very high-tech way.
The Dadabots channel has been live streaming death metal created by artificial intelligence 24/7 for the past month. CJ Carr and Zack Zukowski founded the technology. The two met in Berklee College of Music.
It works like this: the software is fed large amounts of data and learned how to replicate it by recognizing patterns. It starts small and ends up studying a band’s entire discography.
After all that studying, the AI finally generates its own music that is definitely unique death metal — instrument free. You can listen to it below.
In other death metal news, a band called Defiled involuntarily canceled their shows in Miri and Sibu this weekend due to Christian authorities in Malaysia contesting the band’s lyrical components.
Furthermore, the Council of Churches Malaysia suggested their scheduled appearance would be inappropriate given their show would occur during Easter weekend.
“The CCM calls upon the relevant authorities to explain the basis for granting permission to such bands that promote their music by using extremely offensive and denigrating language that can hurt the religious feelings of others,” the council’s general secretary Rev. Dr. Herman Shastri says in a story with Channel News Asia. “This will be considered an affront to the religious sentiments of Christians is the country.”
The band’s record label shared the news via Facebook.
Recently, metal has been seen as the source of many violent crimes in the mainstream media. Just last week, the burning of three historically black Louisiana churches was alleged to have been influenced by “black-metal” music.
Additionally, the 21-year-old suspect, Holden Matthews, is also a law enforcement officer’s son.
