I have laid my patch-laden jean jacket in the grave along side my camouflaged headband and thick leather spiked wrist bands.

/Goodbye, old friends. May we meet again on VH1s "Best of the 80's Hairbands" special.

As far as I'm concerned, Judas Priest ceased to be "heavy metal" when Rob Halford admitted that he likes to smoke poles.

IIRC, Bruce Dickinson is a pilot. So there's at least a little Iron Maiden in the air there.

If there's not enough heavy metal in the air, obviously some people don't have their amps turned up to 11.

1980, isn't that around the time Ozzy left Black Sabbath?

Rob Halford is the greatest vocalist in the history of hard rock, I don't care what he smokes.

Certainly, in the topsy-turvy world of heavy rock, having a good solid piece of wood in your hand is often useful.

Yeah, his leather daddy image was the paragon of heterosexual masculinity.

seriously, who couldn't tell he was gay before that?

Rob Zombie had a good run there for a while, but I can't think of any real modern heavy metal. Avenged Sevenfold, maybe? Korn?
 
2008-01-16 08:04:51 PM  
I can't *wait* for Iron Maiden to his the US for the 2nd leg of the tour... My husband and I saw them in Boston 10/6/06. and it completely kicked ass. Wish our son (5) were older so we could bring him. It's so cute when he walks around with his shuffle singing the chorus from Journeyman "I know what I want, I'll say what I want and no one can take it away-ay-ay" :)

so much for preview... his= hit. I still can't wait though :) First album I ever bought with my own money was Number of the Beast. Coincidentally, it was the same for my husband :)

that's like making a "Where's The Beef?" joke to a 16 year old.

Does that mean that heavy metals help prevent global warming, and that we need more of them in the atmosphere? Because everything relates to that, right?

have you ever even been to a metal show? let's see... a room crammed full of testosterone and sweaty shirtless guys bouncing off each other... metal probably has more gheys/closet cases than most other genres

Blech. I used to listen to Korn seven years ago in high school. Most modern metal is from Scandinavia, though. You've got tons of good metal coming from the likes of Finland and Norway. Dimmu Borgir, Children of Bodom, Nightwish, Opeth, Finntroll, Therion and After Forever are some of my favourites from that area. Other good bands from Europe include Lacuna Coil (though the music press only loves them because singer Christina Scabbia's hot) from Italy, Saxon (yes, they're still around!) and Dragonforce from the UK. Good bands to watch in the Americas include Symphony X, Type O Negative and Voivod.

So in closing there's lots of good modern metal out there that isn't thrash, nu metal, screamo or rap metal.

If you mean on the radio, I think it's 100% reduction, around here.

Halford rocks, with or without Priest.

No not "The Bruce Dickinson" (record producer) Bruce Dickinson (Rock Legend)!!!

I had hopes for The Darkness, but they seem disinterested.

Of course I am aware of the year...it's January.
