    Well I just know that there are some Metallica fanboys here, so I just wanted to do a preemptive strike against them.

    I personally love some of the post-seasons Slayer albums, especially God Hates Us All (Disciple is an amazing song imo). And things like the recent Testament album being not so great - it's one album, not 6 in a row. Biiiig difference there.


    @NeSchn: I know that a lot of black metal is anti-religious, but this album is pretty extreme about it. They end Children of a Worthless God with traditional Arabic singing for christsake.

    Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd aren't metal. Why? Because if they were, I wouldn't listen to them.

    Okay so no slayer, they use the Anti Religion gimmick to make up for low quality albums.

    And for those of you ragging on Metallica, who is arguably the most influencial metal band, you say they sold out. I say they grew and changed sounds. Although I did not enjoy St anger, I loved everything pre Black album and alot of their stuff after it.

    Look at the differences in sound in the albums between Kill Em All and the Black Album......changed drastically, does not mean they sold out.

    For the Dragonforce haters.....Its Hella fast fantasy gimmick metal. I don't care its a freakin solid headband sound. Who cares about the creative process.....I can bang my head to it, I am good. Its all about that, once you start hating on creativity and what not you are over thinking it...... if you dont like the sound thats cool


    Now I may make a few enemies with this next one. Death/Black/Grindcore etc.....Don't belong in the Metal category. Its all based on gimmicks, and I don't care how hard it is to manipulate your voice the vocals ruin alot of amazing music. I feel that these forms of "Metal" are as gimmicky as emo music.

    I personally like alot of the classics and stuff from the 80s

    The big 3
    Iron Maiden
    Metallica
    Judas Preist

    Then theres a ton of others

    Motorhead
    Sabbath
    Dio -THE GOD FATHER OF METAL
    Alice Cooper
    Motley Crue
    Quiet Riot
    Manowar
    Stratovarius -More prog rock though
    Led Zepplin
    DragonForce
    ACDC
    Bon Jovi-Livin on a Prayer FTW
    Pantera
    Ozzy
    Def Leppard
    and a ton of other random stuff.

    And I stick Led Zepplin into the metal category. Maybe not our current definition but alot of their heavier stuff was the earliest influences on Current day metal.

    Thats pretty cool, if you also want to listen to a freaky but awesome song, listen to De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas from Mayhem.

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=WeG72pp1KcI&feature=related

    He sings like a preacher in some parts and its kinda freaky.

    De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas roughly translates into "Lord Satans Secret Rites/ The secret rites of lord satan"


    Whatg makes me sick is that most of the guys in bands that do "Satanist" music aren't even practicing satanism.

    People think that satanism is worship of satan as the bible describes him, the evil counter part to god/christ. That isn't correct. Actual Satanists don't worship the christian satan.

    Check out the nine satanic statements for a general guide on the doctrines of The Church of Satan.

    Satanism has nothing with worshipping evil, or th dark lord and all that crap. Its more of a humanistic set of guidelines, they just happen to clash with christian views on morality and satan is more symbolic than anything.

    This painting of the face mutilation darkness bullshit is a big fucking gimmick

    So evil satanists are not satanists. They are posers. Because even satanists believe in being kind to those that deserve it.

    Yes I do agree with you, I have read that satanism is not worshipping the devil, and black metal is very cheesy with their facepaint.

    This is one of the most classic pictures of all time:

    I still like it though.

    Yeah, they sing about Satan. Glenn Benton (Lead singer) has an inverted cross burned into his head. I guess he really likes satan.

    The upside down cross kinda looks like an 8-bit sword.

    So this thread kicks the MPAA's ass. =]

    One band I'd REALLY like to recommend: Outworld. They only have one album out, but i'm in love with the second track "Riders"
    The other I'd recommend is Soilwork.

    There are a couple other bands, but I can't remember which they are right now.

    Btw, how is CoB's new album? I haven't had time to listen to it yet.

    Heh I've considered buying a pentagram necklace and a shirt like that and wearing it to school just to fuck with people
    I'd probably get jumped by a bunch of Crusafix-necklace-wearing black kids, but oh well hehe
