Okay.

People think I still like Slipknot. I got a poster and a calendar as Christmas gifts. I bought the original version the day it came out (the one with "Frail Limb Nursery" and "Purity" on it). Then I bought the Digipak version for the extra songs and the song they used to replace the two songs mentioned above with. So I bought essentially the same CD twice.

Bow before my idiocy. NOW!

Hey, did anyone read the nasty shit Dave Brockie (Oderus from GWAR) had to say about Corey Taylor? Then Taylor backtracked his original comments like a pansy.

It's at www.gwar.net if you feel like reading the whole thing, but Corey was talking about how he didn't want Slipknot to stay around forever and lose relevance. After that I think he said something like, "two fucking words, motherfuckers. Fucking GWAR, man," in typical Slipknot fashion. Oderus responded on his site, ripping Taylor for being a whiny little bitch in his interviews and songs. And Brockie sounds like a fairly smart guy, wheras Corey Taylor is a member of Slipknot. Taylor responded by saying that he really loves GWAR and how his comments were misinterpreted.

I've decided no FNM in my collection.

I may steal it later if I forget that I don't like it much.

Fantomas are cool, though don't expect it to sound anything like what you've heard from him before.

Faith No More's "King For A Day......" -era material is quite thrashy and metallic, damn good and very under-rated.

Also, check out his work on the EP with the Dilinger Escape Plan. It's pretty fuckng quality material.I've downloaded it and it just rules,definitely go check it out.

I dont expect it to sound like anything else Patton did, thats why I want it. I heard a few songs from the Directors Cut, but I'm looking to buy the first album. :yes::drool:

Eh, it's just that I've recommended Fantomas to other people, and after they've listened to them said they didn't like it 'cause it didn;t sound like any of his other projects.

Check out The Melvins as well.

Just thought I'd update on my latest purchases...

Two discs for my g/f for her birthday...

Saliva's Back in Your System, which didn't sound half bad from what I skimmed, and Linkin Park's Meteora being that she loves Linkin Park, and it was...well, it was Linkin Park.

But, as we all know, I can't buy two softer albums without some death metal...picked up Bloodbath's Resurrection Through Carnage (side project of Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt) and it is easily one of the best buys I've had so far this year. Heavier than Opeth, no clean vox...just great, great stuff. The Haunted's One Kill Wonder which is also great...not as good as ...Made Me Do It, but still really good. Also nabbed Cannibal Corpse's Bloodthirst, which is the first album w/ George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher on vocals...it's really good as well...considering I meant to pick up a different Cannibal Corpse album (which I'll be picking up next time I hit the local, and always shitty FYE). Overall, the ones I picked up were awesome, and the ones I picked up for my g/f...well, she liked 'em. Guess that's all that matters.

That's giving Slipknot a bit more credit than they deserve.

GWAR may not be the best band alive (although I buy every CD they put out, in part of some unexplainable phenomenon), but they put a lot more sweat into their live shows than Slipknot. Slipknot beats on bongos while they try to punch each other. GWAR constantly updates their costumes, neglecting profit, and instead, trying to make their stage show even better (Slymenstra Hymen was even quoted as saying that she's sick of eating ramen noodles and paying for new stage props, instead of living comfortably). Slipknot does it for money. GWAR actually does it just to please the small fanbase that they have (whether this is being noble or being stupid is debatable, though, I guess).

Sorry about the ramble, I just think it's unfair to lump GWAR in the same category as Slipknot, I guess. :\

SpiritualBlackDimensions
April 3rd, 2003, 8:16 AM

Not really.

As well as Metal Mayhem.

So I could go and get it if I felt like buying an album.

NiMMERS
April 13th, 2003, 7:24 AM
Aye. JB is your friend.

I'm looking forward to new SJR which should be coming out some time this year......same thing goes with Sepultura.

I recall asking something about Killswitch Engage and someone said they were good nu-metal. Nu-Metal they aint. Sounds like they're a part of this new wave of melodic metal. I'm digging their epic soundscapes right now.

Another question....what is with people's obsession with the Murderdolls?

Black Eagle
April 13th, 2003, 7:27 AM
This new wave of Melodic Metal as you all call it, is awesome. Plus, considering that i'm fairly new to this genre, there are a shit load of bands that i havn't heard, and i'm slowly discovering. Exciting times lay ahead.

You need Soilwork's "Natural Born Chaos'.

As far as other sub-genres go, check out some of these-

Machine Head- BME, Iron Maiden- the Number of The Beast and Arise=Sepultura.

Strapping Young Lad, without a doubt.Alice In Chains is great stuff as well.

Plus some Audioslave would be a welcome addition.

Black Eagle
April 13th, 2003, 7:44 AM
Yeh, i've got the Audioslave album. Some good tunes on it. I've known about SYL for a while, but for some reason, never gotten any of their music. I will go now.

NiMMERS
April 13th, 2003, 7:45 AM
I HIGHLY reccomend 'City' by Strapping Young Lad (but I reccomend anything by Devy). It's in your face and extreme yet accessible.

Get into Soilwork as Crabby said. I find their earlier works more satisfying to the ears, personally.

To get a grip on the pioneers of said new wave of melodic metal. Get some At The Gates. They really set the standard. Combining thrash, death and melody in good proportions.

Tangent. I'm not a huge fan of bands who evolve and change at the expense of compromising the characteristics of what made them interesting in the first place. I hate to bag In Flames but I reckon the vocalist Anders Frieden is a prime example of this. His vocals on recent work barring 'Reroute to Remain' were really intense but on the live scene he sounds a bit weak (but still decent, due to the fact that it still sounds individual), and he adapted his live sound to RTR.

Crabby
April 13th, 2003, 7:45 AM
'I Am The Highway".

Now there's a killer song.

Aussie_Outlaw
April 13th, 2003, 8:01 AM

Oh and everyone should own a copy of Anthrax's Volume 8 and Motley Crue's greatest hits.

NiMMERS
April 19th, 2003, 10:30 PM
Well I think now they've got a label that believes in them more than the nu-metal loving Roadrunner they should be making a trip down here.

One good thing about Seps drop in popularity is I reckon the tickets wouldnt cost a shitload like in the days of Max. Although the 'Against' tour cost around $60.

Crabby
April 19th, 2003, 10:33 PM
$60 or more seems to be pretty standard these days.Deftones was about $55, though (that was at a smaller venue I guess), and Audioslave was about $65, just for example.

Speaking of Audioslave, Melbourne heavy rock band Warped have scored the support slot.I've heard a little of them, they're okay.I like their song "Figure Four Leg Lock".

NiMMERS
April 19th, 2003, 10:36 PM

And this post is because I'm bored.

"The thing was, they had me go down to the record company - I didn't want to go down there, because I get fucking skivvies just fucking going in there, but I went - and they were playing songs by the Offspring and fucking Dave Grohl. I was like, "Fucking shit, I could piss fucking songs better than this!" I was speechless, these songs were a joke - I mean, they wouldn't work well on a fucking Trixter record!" - Zakk Wylde about the song ideas the record label had for Ozzy's new record, Metal Edge, March 2002

"If I ever run into Dave Grohl, I'm gonna kick his fuckin' ass. Because I think he sucks, and he wrote this cheese-dick song for Ozzy that I have to fuckin' play on, and I'll never forgive him for that. Foo Fighters is a fuckin' candyass girl band, but you've got that motherfucker submitting songs, and those douche bags from the Offspring submitting songs, too. I mean, none of thse guys could play a Randy Rhoads solo if they tried. Dave Grohl? Fuck Dave Grohl! Let him get up there and play 'Mr. Crowley'; he can't fuckin' do it. And it's like, you're getting this guy to write songs for Ozzy? Just because he played drums for fucking Shitvana?" - Zakk Wylde, Guitar World, November 2001


"The last time I checked it says 'BLACK FUCKIN' LABEL SOCIETY' back there. There ain't no lame-ass shit like Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, fuckin' Offspring, fuckin' douche-cunts from Bush up here. Make some motherfuckin' noise! Jesus Christ, I had to start this band, cause there's so much pussy-ass, whining shit out there. We gotta stomp that shit out, man. Since when the fuck was it cool to be a fuckin' pussy? I don't get it." - Zakk Wylde, Black Label Society, October 28th, 1999, The Whisky A-Go-Go.


"That's the difference between the lyrics I write and a band like Pearl Jam. For example: Let's say you save up enough dough to buy a fucking case of Raw Ass - it's the worst tasting beer we can buy, but that's all we got the money for - you're out in front of the liquor store, and some guy puts it in the back of his truck and fucking takes off. "Motherfucker! We just lost our beer and the dough!" Eddie Vedder will fucking whine about it, being a pussy, and write a song about being a wuss and how it's crushed his fucking life now cause this asshole drove off with his beer. Come to Black Label, man! What we do is, we get his license plate number, find out where he fuckin' lives, go down, smash his truck with a cinder blocks through the windshield, get the beer, then light his house on fire, get drunk, and write a song about it. That's the way Black Label handles it, man! It's pure fucking comedy at it's best!! - Zakk Wylde, Black Label Society, Metal Edge, December 1999.



"What we're about to do now is a little game we play. It's gonna be a longstanding
tradition here in the Society. I'll pretty much ask you a question, and the response should be, 'FUCK YEAH,' cause if it isn't, we're gonna have to take you out back and beat the livin' fuckin' piss out of you."

Zakk Wylde: Question number one: Do the Backstreet Boys suck some major motherfuckin' horse dick?
Crowd: FUCK YEAH!
Zakk Wylde: Gavin from Bush. If you look like you shower more than three times a day, and have your fuckin' nails manicured, you fuckin' pussy ass piece of shit, you shouldn't be in a fuckin' rock 'n' roll band, am I right?
Crowd: FUCK YEAH!
Zakk Wylde: Next, is Eddie Vedder the whiniest motherfuckin' cunt on this goddamn planet?
Crowd: FUCK YEAH!
Zakk Wylde: Listen, do me a favor, as a friend: If you ever, ever, ehhh-ver (yes, he pulled a Chris Jericho) fuckin' hear me singing like that lame-ass cunt from the Smashing Pumpkins, Billy Corgan..."Today is..." SHUT THE FUCK UP, MOTHERFUCKER! If you ever hear me singing me like that, I'm friends with Mike Piazza, I'm gonna give you one of his fuckin' bats, and beat the fuckin' piss out of me! Would you do it?
Crowd: FUCK YEAH!
Zakk Wylde: Thank you. What are friends for? Next: The Goo Goo Dolls. Jesus Christ. If you name your fuckin' band "The Goo Goo Dolls," fuck that shit, man! What the fuck are you thinking? You deserve a can of whoop-ass if you name your band the Goo Goo Dolls!
Crowd: FUCK YEAH!
ZW: Last but not least, how good would Britney Spears look with a 12-inch cock in her mouth, am I right?

Celtic Frost are working on a new album!

:headbang:

Celtic Frost have made available for exclusive use via www.celticfrost.com one of the demos for the new album currently in the works.

The song is called "Ground", written in 2002/2003. It is important to remember that the version available here is a mere pre-production demo, recorded at the band's rehearsal space in Zurich, Switzerland, earlier this year. Pre-production demos are used to further develop material and to showcase new music to producers, engineers, and the band's industry partners.

The final version of "Ground", to be released on the forthcoming album, features new instrument and vocal tracks, recorded in a proper studio environment and resulting in a much better overall production and sound quality.

Can't complain about a Celtic Frost return!

So I went out and bought Necrophagia's 'The Divine Art of Torture', and I must say it SHITS over the Anselmo era of the band. Or maybe I listened to a duff album of theirs. Oh and I was lucky enough to find the first Tomahawk album....but no 'Mit Gas'.

Man, it's been a long time since I posted in here. Since then I got the new Mayhem and the new CoF. Mayhem's CD is pretty weird, but I can't stop listening to it. I think that CD or Immortal gets played most of the time in my car. The new CoF is okay. I like it better than Dusk and Her Embrace, but not near as much as Cruelty and the Beast. It'll probably grow on me.

Now I'm just waiting for the new batch of CDs I ordered:

Children of Bodom - Something Wild (Deluxe Edition)
Gorelord - Force Fed on Human Flesh
Dark Funeral - Diabolus Interium
Unlord - Lord of Beneath

...god damn, Amazon metal lists kick ass. :shifty: That's where I mostly hear new stuff from, lately. :\

I'll I need now is the new Anthrax and Nothingface CDs, and some Dissection. Then I can relax from buying CDs for a while. I've been spending way too much money on them lately.


Oh, speaking of Celtic Frost, Tom G. Warrior is supposed to sing on Dave Grohl's Probot album, along with Cronos, Lemmy, Phil Anselmo, and some other guys that I forget now. I bet this supposed death metal CD ends up being a lot better than the new Metallica. Call it a blind hunch.

Didn't think I'd be awake did you? 5am and all.

Hmmmmmmm good CoB - SW is awesome.

Last night I saw 'Rock Star', that damned movie. It would be a good movie if they cut out the whole morality and the fact he had a girlfriend and all the shit she makes him feel. If they keep in the arena scenes, the idolising scenes, the whole being trashed scenes and the idiocy scenes then they'd have a film that would be awesome.

But it's average, when I want a rock star movie I want something that makes me wanna go and drink a shitload not something which makes me go 'ohhhhhhhh' since he fell for the dumb bitch. they tried to stick a romantic bullshitiness in.

But the music is awesome. Geat original tracks. Oh and Zakk Wylde without a beard and his pathetic attempts at a British accent.

:lol: If his extremely limited acting on that one gets his foot in the door for more movie appearances, I'm going to laugh. It's funny how they just made him stand around most of the time, since they probably didn't want him saying anything, anyway.

I agree with you about the movie, though. It seems like they really tried to make a good rock movie, but they kind of crapped it up by throwing in all the sappy Hollywood stuff.

Aussie_Outlaw
April 22nd, 2003, 3:22 PM
I knew he wrote some of the Steel Dragon songs before I watched the movie and half way through it I sat up and went "Is that Zakk Wylde?", and when I realised it was, since he plays the same on stage there as he normally does, which is kinda weird for an 80's band ripped from Judas Priest.

It's just hard to recognise him without the beard.

But yeah it seems like there were two different writers, a rock writer and a hollywood writer and the hollywood writer should have been killed before he was allowed to put pen to paper.

The Art of Balance is ok...the only song that really seems to stand out is "Stepping Outside the Circle," IMO. That was the first song I heard from the new one, and the rest of the CD is somewhat of a letdown by comparison. The riffs on most of the other songs are less memorable. You would probably be better off getting one of their older CDs, though.

You people know what I'm obsessed with already.

Megadeth.com April 9th.

Droogies, Well it has been a year since the official break-up of Megadeth or what some other people are calling (or hoping was) the temporary suspension of the band's procedings.

I wanted to tell you that over the last year there has been a lot of contact between all the band members of Megadeth from the past and, excluding Gar, everyone is still alive and well, whether it was me contacting them, or the others talking amongst themselves.

We have all stayed in contact somehow with someone Megadeth, and even though there may not be any reunion on the immediate horizon, just know that we've talked. Also, as we approach our 20th anniversary, one thing that we all still remember is 'how' we got to the top.

It was because of you.

Stay tuned.

I tried a couple of other sites, and one of them said the song is "The Pillar," but that's wrong. That might've been the song they made for the soundtrack (that didn't appear on it, anyway), but it wasn't the song they were playing on the movie.

Hey Outlaw (whenever you read this), you were right. 'Rust in Peace' is fucking awesome.

Iced Earth News:

Jon Schaffer is stoked about the potential of the forthcoming album,
including the 32 minute (?) epic, 'Gettysburg'. "We are going to do it as a
free DVD, in Dolby 5.1 surround sound. I wrote parts of the song specifically for that. There will be battle sounds, cavalry, cannons will be fired behind you, then explode in front. It will be cool to have a drum roll that goes around your head. It took me a while to persuade SPV to allow me to do this. I'm not sure if it will be included with the new album, or you'll get a coupon, so they can send it to you later."
"I'm a Civil War re-inactor, so there was talk of the band dressing up, with
my unit, but right now, I think there won't be any visuals on the screen,
while the music is playing. Maybe an explanation that I'll also put in the
liner notes, to tell what the long instrumental passages mean, 'This is where the Confederate army is... This is the retreat through the town.' When we do the real Iced Earth DVD, we'll do something (visual), but this is already going to be a VERY expensive freebie."

"We starting mixing at Morrissound on May 19th and have it booked until the 30th. The final master has to be delivered (to SPV), by June 1. Normally we only take a few days, but we've got to do the stereo mix of 'Gettysburg' and the 5.1, that's why we need so much time. Morrissound doesn't even have the equipment for the 5.1 mix. They have to rent it."
Glorious Burden, the debut for new label SPV, is expected this Fall.

Double Disc Live Edguy in June.

Dream Theater have been in the studio since March 10th.

Talking about Dream Theater:

You begged, you hoped, you pleaded, you prayed! And now I'm happy to announce that your prayers have finally been answered. This summer, Queensryche is set to hit the road with none other than Dream Theater! In 50/50 co-headlining tour to begin this June, one thing's for sure... this WILL be the tour to see this summer. Next to the return of Chris DeGarmo has the news has bigger than this. And if you think the pairing up of these two bands was good enough, Fates Warning will be their special guest. Tour dates will be announced shortly. So stay tuned, there's a lot more to come, just you wait!


New Nevermore (Enemies of Reality) on June 17th in US and June 24th in Europe.

Iron Maiden have released American tour dates till early August, still no Aussie dates yet.

Also does anyone actually have the new MachineHead live album?

And I'm lead to believe new Anthrax comes out in the US on the 6/5, which is Tuesday.

And on weird shit I'm listening to, currently sits in ProgPower Land with things like Pagan's Mind, Circle II Circle, Evergrey, Mercenary, Redemption, Vanden Plas, Angra, Angel Dust, Superior , Threshold, Pain Of Salvation, Kamelot, Stratovarious and of course the old favourites as well as a nice doseage of Hair and basically most things.

You notice how when In Flames changed their sound, they got a lot of shit, but Soilwork has been praised when they softened up theirs? Hmm...probably because 'A Predator's Portrait' and 'Natural Born Chaos' were a lot better than 'Clayman' and 'Reroute to Remain.'

Seriously, still I don't own a copy of Clayman though so I can't complain. But Soilwork kept a piece of heavyness/difference that In Flames lost when they softened their sound, I don't know how to describe it but Soilwork remained heavy.

Perhaps you haven't heard the new anthrax album yet.

Both intros for What Doesn't Die and Frantic are god damn similiar. Cept the Thrax version Charlie plays with his feet and Lars, well Lars can't play that well, well Lars can't play very well so he's reduced to playing with his hands.

Still there is some resemblence with Fuel and Fueled, just with Fuel having more of a polish.

And the fact SFSGSW is basically RIP +PS put together which makes for a fucking awesome album.

Also the good thing is that the albums aren't 600minutes long which means you can listen to them easily in a sitting. Sometimes with 72minute albums, you realise about 1/4 of it is filler.

Something Wild is decent.

Even if I haven't listened to it for awhile it's like COF, with more emphasis on Melody than Death Metal while still remaining heavy. Also the orchastrations are awesome.

Something Wild is insanely great.

I've only recently began to REALLY dig their other albums. :heart:Hatebreeder:heart:


That is an awesome name. I still think Cannibal Corpse and Gorelord have the best song names though. "Necrophilic Orgy in Entrails and Cum". I mean come on. Thats AWESOME.

I see your point. RIP has a lot of intros, it seems like. I just want to hear the rest of the song. It's good for building the song up the first time you hear it, but it's just filler after that.

No I wasn't say RIP has filler, for gods sake, the album is almost spotless.

But with some Maiden releases and the latest DT disc, contain a fair bit of filler.

SFSGSW is a good composite between RIP and PS.

RIp clocks 46 minutes, it's hardly long enough to contain filler.
SFSGSW is 34 and PS is 36.

Well, you know the intro on "Poison Was the Cure," for example? It sounds like the soundtrack for a double agent sneaking into the top secret badguy HQ, or something. It's good for dynamics, but after a while I just want to skip it and get to the rest of the song.

Yeah there's no-one here but I just ended up chatting to a few guys at Uni who are into it, just ended up sittin at the same table during lunch so we got talking.

I ended up getting 2.1GB of Music from one guy a month or so back, and I see him around Uni about 2wice a week and we sit and chat about what each other is into. There's another guy who is in one of my classes who's a major Priest/maiden mark so we get tlaking about that.

I may as well add I don't go a massive Uni (I couldn't stand it). I can walk from one corner of the campus to the other in about 8 minutes. It's a smaller Uni than some of the massive ones in the city where about 10,000 people go to but it has a good IT reputation.

Okay.

Dying Fetus is a lot like CC, only more technically sound and politically oriented. Hell, if you like them, get some Napalm Death, too.

Dissection is black metal. Some good melodies there. (A band member got imprisoned for killing an immigrant gay guy :wtf:)

Mayhem's GDoW is really avant-garde, like the Tool of Black Metal. It's got some good shit, but Wolf Lair Abyss is heavier.

Amon Amarth has been described as viking death metal. The songs I've heard from 'The Crusher' are based on Odinism and Thor and stuff. The stuff they play reminds me of war.

Carcass' Necroticism CD is supposed to be a heavy influence for gore metal. The Heartwork and Swansong CDs are good too, but none of the 3 sound alike.

Well Jap cds were the same Price here since they're just imported like Euro cds.

Are you talking about Hidden Treasures?

Crown of Worms was on the Jap version of Youthanasia. New World Order was on the Japanese version of Hidden Treasures, One Thing was on the Japanese version of Cryptic Writings.

Then you have the breadline Special Edition which was only released in Japan and contains the remixes, besides two Almost Honest Remixes which were on the Double Disc Jap release of Cryptic Writings (Disc II) which was Live Trax II.

Ok I got the new videos for Soilwork's Rejection Role and In Flames' Trigger.

Basically they're both set in the same basemen club and the other band is heckleing the band on stage, Then both bands go and fight. Basically it's from the other band's perspective.

Took me a few watches to realise It was soilwork harassing In Flames and vise versa. Quite funny.

Yeah, I used to think Tool was the best thing out there... they're still pretty amazing but Opeth definitely eclipses them and I'm even finding these days that I enjoy NIN more than Tool. But I guess that's what happens when you listen to all their albums atleast once a day for half a year.

Never heard em.



Not a fan of The Tea Party? Seems weird they're huge in their homeland and here, and popular in Europe, but have never cacked it in the US.


I don't hate them, but no I am not a fan.

The list was pretty much what i've already listened to. The Incubus of old is class, but i've had their albums for a while now.

Thanks.

1) Never got into Iced Earth.
2) Helloween aint my cup of tea.
3) See above.
4) 'My Arms, Your Hearse' to get you right into the thick of things, the song 'Demon of the Fall' is what got me into the band. Hunt down 'Deliverance' and 'Still Life' as well. Heck just get it all.
5) Why not? I still think there are other bands doing the same thing and better and have been round longer. Check out At The Gates, In Flames yada yada any band from Sweden :)
6) I only got it cos it was the digipak sitting there in good condition 2nd hand (cheap!). It's better than 'The Burning Red' but it aint the Machine Head I love.
7) Them? They only got like 2 out aint they? Either/Or I say.
8) Hell Yes. Neurosis = Good. One of the most heaviest and individual bands out there.
9) One of the legendary Bay Area thrash bands of the 80's. Get their music if ya wanna check out what thrash was all about back in the day. Other bands of their ilk include Possessed and Testament and (old) Metallica.
10) All the old stuff like 'Haunting the Chapel' and shit. Again, one of those classic bands where you just get all their stuff.
11) I hate Type O Negative.

-----

1) New Sepultura will rock. Go check out 'Mindwar' which comes from the new and soon to be released LP. Alot of people don't like Seps now cos they changed their musical direction and are pushing the boundaries of what they can do, I dig it. Which I can't say for their old counterpart, Maxy (now in Soulfly). He wrote the same album 3 times and each got worse (I still love the debut)...but it's all recycled beyond belief.
2) Not really, one of the reasonably respectable Black Metal bands from Norway. All I heard is they went for the Swedish melodic sound on their latest outing which can't be a bad thing.
3) I suppose Strapping Young Lad are underrated, even though in metal media in general they are hot property. Hunt down 'City'. I went and saw a band by the name of Frankenbok the other night and they fucking blew me away with their new singer, depending on where you're from it'll be near impossible for ya to get their 2 releases (and 1 impending release). Search for their stuff on Kazaa or WinMX I think you'll find a few tracks. I reccomend the Scandinavian scene. Bands like In Flames, Meshuggah, Dark Tranquility, Children of Bodom. And old disbanded classic bands from there like Grave and At The Gates and Celtic Frost (well they reformed recently). It's all good. www.bnrmetal.com gives a good and brief insight into a whole lot of bands.
4) New bands? No idea. I like to get into bands that pioneered and paved the way for followers. Cos really there arent many new bands that are doing something refreshingly individual.

I'm gonna do my best to answer these...

1- Go with The Dark Saga first, it's probably their best album, if you're in to that, check out Days of Purgatory. Purgatory is definitely one of my faves, as I've bought it three times over, one American version, one Japanese, and one double-disc Euro import.

2- I've heard a little Helloween, and it's just not my thing.

3- Never heard of 'em.

4- Get Deliverance next. Followed by My Arms, Your Hearse, Still Life, Damnation, Morningrise and Orchid. And if at all possible, get the non-American imports...they're :yes:, bonus tracks own.

5- The Shadows Fall album? Meh, it's alright...not all that it's cracked up to be. I've heard tons of positive reviews, but they're just not all that fantastic and memorable to me. Maybe their next album will be better? I'd recommend Killswitch Engage rather than Shadows Fall, if you haven't heard them, that is.

6- If you dig the style of The Burning Red, then by all means buy it. If you didn't, and you still want it to add to your collection, then download it.

7- I have that one, Pass Out of Existence, and it is friggin' amazing. If they have a new one out, and I don't have it, I'm going to slap myself.

8 & 9- I've never really been into either band, so I really couldn't tell you.

10- Any of them. After South of Heaven, you'll already have the crown jewels of Slayer's catalogue. If you absolutely need advice on which to buy next, I'd recommend Divine Intervention, as it's probably the next best one...but after you have the best of the best, it doesn't much matter which you buy next.

11- Black Number 1, anything off of October Rust, pretty much anything off of World Coming Down, and there are a few others...and their version of "Black Sabbath" off the first NIB tribute (not the one on The Least Worst of...) is friggin' amazing.

And then...

1- If it doesn't have Max, then I really don't want to hear it. I'm sure that it will be good and bad on its own merits, but really w/out Max, Sepultura just isn't the same...and Soulfly isn't crap compared to old Sep.

2- Never heard of 'em.

3- LIFE OF AGONY!!!!!!!! Get River Runs Red, it's essential listening for any and everyone. Dark Tranquility if you're into anything that sounds like In Flames...only less sold out.

4- I've already said Killswitch Engage...go for Daylight Dies as well...they're friggin' awesome for melodic Swedish-sounding death metal...even if they're American.

...and that's about all I got for today.

Crabby
May 10th, 2003, 4:25 PM
"Supercharger" is a decent effort but not a patch on their past work.I know it's almost a cliche to say that, but it's true.Too much filler for my liking and some of the songwriting is pretty ordinary.If you like "The Burning Red", though, you should pick it up.

As far as Slayer goes, I'd recommend you pick up "Hell Awaits" next, and probably then "Divine Intervention". "Show No Mercy" is also quite good even if some of the lyrics are somewhat stupid."Decade Of Aggression" is a killer live album as well.

Opeth- I'd recommend you get "Deliverance" next.

A band I think you'd also like is Will Haven.Check out the "Carpe Diem" album.

1) Something Wicked This Way Comes. The title track is worth the price of admission alone.
5) No. It has a few good moments, but I don't think it's worth shelling out the money for.
6) Download it first.
10) Live: Decade of Agression. A great live CD, and a good range of their work.
11) Black No.1, My Girlfriend's Girlfriend, and Kill all the White People. My experience with Type O is pretty limited, though...

The First Iced Earth album you should get is prolly Dark Saga, but I guess you could start off with Alive In Athens, as it's a live disc giving you a fair range of stuff from different albums. It's fairly good too.

I'm slowly getting to Helloween, but it's hard to, they're like Iron Maiden just with a slightly weirder sound, I find Blind Guardian to get into easier

Gamma Ray, another power/heavy band, I'm slowly making my way around to all the power bands, but I'm currently stuck up in Melo-Death at the moment. Havent got around to Gamma Ray Yet.

Other people know Opeth's catalogue better than me. Still Life I'd say though.

MachineHead's superCharger isn't that bad of an album, it's not great, it's not crap, somewhere in the middle, it's not as dark as Burning Red, but it still holds some nice commercial energy songs.

Lets say for Slayer definately Decade Of Aggression, and Diabolus In Musica, then perhaps the earlier shit with Hell Awaits, etc and then the early 90's ones. GHUA somewhere in the middle

Under-rated Metal bands, well it all depends on what your into I guess, see I'd say the whole Melodic Death scene is under-rated compared to where it should be (mainstream) but others would say the leaders of the genre (AE, ATG, S, IF) are over-rated. Racer X deserve more credit than they get. Nevermore need more followers and deserve more. Kamelot's The Spell is a fine song as is Wings Of Despair.


New Metal bands, I'm guessing yopu mean in the last few years, Dream Evil are only about one year old and fairly large, Warmachine should be signed to a decent label.

But I'm only naming power acts.

There's enough for now.

Oh and Burnz I found CoB's Hatebreeder on one of the webpages so I downloaded it, I only have the new one to go now.

May 13th, 2003, 2:04 AM
Finally, something within my territory. Okay, if you want some Opeth, I'll give you a brief run-down of each album...

Orchid - Their debut album, basically their transition from a shitty death metal band to a good one... um, it's kinda monotonous and directionless, and they do a lot of things over and over again... but they're doing good things over and over again, which makes it tolerable... it's good background music, but if you want something to get lost in, don't get it.

Morningrise - In my opinion, one of their most amazing albums ever... it's very mellow with a few hard parts in between. The way it flows from a beautiful acoustic guitar solo to sheer insanity is just incredible. It brings you so many places and the vocals for the last 4 tracks are amazing. The first track, Advent, is kinda dull like their Orchid material. The Night and the Silent Water is beautiful, Nectar is beautiful and has an incredible climax at the end, Black Rose Immortal is imo the most beautiful song ever, 20:14 long, with some of the most piercing vocals and sound effects ever... and To Bid You Farewell is a beautiful acoustic track with lots of piercing vocals. Eternal Soul Torture is the extra track if you get the new version... haven't given it a proper listen so I can't really give you an assessment on that.

My Arms, Your Hearse - It's different from all other Opeth stuff... the tracks are shorter (an average of about 5 minutes, but if you take away the small interludes, about 7 1/2 minutes)... some of it just doesn't suit their style, mainly Akerfeldt's. Some of his singing seems really forced in the harder songs like Karma. The only song that really stands out is Demon of the Fall. It's good, but poor for Opeth standards... there's much better stuff out there.

Still Life - Mmmmm, what an album. Never really got into it until lately. It's basically the perfect precedent to Blackwater Park... it's got the same style, with mixed vocals between grim and clean, hard parts and soft parts, long mellow parts, but it's just not as refined. There's just something about it that seems a little forced. But other than that, it's great. Serenity Painted Death is a really dark song. Even White Cluster, the bonus track if you get the new version, is pretty good.

Deliverance - It's a bit monotonous at points, not as many clean parts, and then when there are clean parts, it's all clean and there's no grim parts. The first 2 tracks lead right into each other, and combined, they're about 25 minutes... but it's worth it for the drum solo at the end of Deliverance. OMGYES. A Fair Judgment is fairly mellow, has some really piercing vocals, but most of it is again somewhat monotonous. For Absent Friends is a beautiful instrumental but doesn't really stand out from their other work a whole lot. Master's Apprentices has a fucking kick-ass beat that reminds me of Metallica... it's really catchy. By the Pain I See in Others is a pretty good song, just if Akerfeldt didn't yell "RISE TO SUBMISSION" about 25 times. Overall, a good listen, but Morningrise and Still Life are better.

Damnation - Their shortest album to date, with an average track length of about 5 1/2 minutes, all clean vocals, no hard parts at all, but it's fucking beautiful. It's basically a more refined version of Morningrise with more piercing vocals (the whole album has incredible vocals), though I wish they would've made longer tracks. That's my only complaint... it's a beautiful album.

Why do people bag out post-Max Seps? Have they actually heard 'Against' and 'Nation'? Listen to what Max is producing in Soulfly.......you can pick the next riff like a dirty nose. It's all repetitive and recycled.

New Sepultura on the other hand are great. At least they're doing something new and exciting and not trying to recapture past glories like a certain pussy whipped ex-frontman.

For people to say the remaining Sepultura guys are nothing without Max (this is just one sheep opinion if I ever heard one, plus it aint the case), I retort with the fact that Max is nothing special without Andreas, Igor and Paulo.

Crabby
May 15th, 2003, 5:08 AM
Max seems to be in a comfort zone these days with Soulfly,he just recycles riffs and song structures these days like you said.No inventiveness or real interest evident in the music these days.Their show with Hatebreed was damn good,though, so Max can still bring it live,though.

I dig latter-day Sepultura, though sure they were better with Max.It's the same with Audioslave.Sure, I loved Rage and Soundgarden and wish they were both still around, but they have formed a kick arse new band and haven't just rested on their laurels and are still producing killer material.Something Sepultura have also not done, they have kicked on and despite Max's claims they should have given up or changed their name,they are still more than worthy IMO.Their is still intensity and energy in their music that Soulfly seriously lacks these days.

And once again Nimmers, your hatred of Gloria shines through.Haha.
