I Mastodon a few years back as an opening act when they were on the Ozzfest tour. After a song and a half it was time to go get beer. Zzz

Folk-rocker Al Stewart describes his song "Antarctica" as metal even when played on an acoustic guitar.

Mastadon owned my face in concert multiple times. Strangely enough, I have a weird mutation where I am able to like more than one genre. Isis, Faith no More, Queensryche, Pelican, Red Sparrows and Anthrax (a la Sound of White Noise) are all farking awesome.

Ours was for Zombie and Maiden (the former of which acted like a child during his set and the latter of which lived up to every expectation I had)

I have a pretty wide range of tastes, far outside metal, but I find Mastodon super boring.

I was metal before metal was cool........

Never seen a bad show by Iron Maiden. Only seen them six times over the years, but every show was a standout performance.

I used to give a shiat about this garbage until my accident. The doctors were impressed about how much brain damage I didn't have.

This guy/referenced guy is a cockfag. Edguy is boss. Yea, they rip off DLR Van Halen style, but who cares? It's for fun and it's great. 80s hair metal does not sound like metal on a Casio keyboard, but that's the point. It's Glam, not freaking Finntroll.

War metal frowns on your silly genre distinctions


/also, was cool long before 'hipster' metal

Metal isn't some single sound, moran. Hair, Doom, Melodic, Death, Folk, Oriental Israeli Progressive Melodic Death, etc.. All Metal.

Need more Megadeth inspired music. From riffs, solos, to vocal stylings. So many new bands have great musical writing, but the lead singer just screams. Wish In Flames would pick up a good singer...
 
2012-08-12 07:02:26 PM
Just pop some Burzum in here....

I like my metal as black as the charred crosses post some everlasting burningation

Aha Al Stewart in a metal thread. Unrelated but funny: Apparently the guy who plays Black Dynamite's favorite song is Year of The Cat, to the point that he learned it on piano, and plays it to his friends when they come over.

Also, for you metalheads:

NOT Metal

I thought we covered this in the eighties...

Metal died with Peter Steele.
 
2012-08-12 08:09:55 PM
As much as its fans like to subdivide the genre into a million different types, I think most metal could legitimately be called hipster metal.
 
2012-08-12 08:12:36 PM
Not sure if they are Hipster metal or not but if you haven't heard Red Fang or Tame Impala you should listen. I'll take some Truckfighters too.
 
2012-08-12 08:17:36 PM
Quit worrying about what is what and just go bang thy head.

I would say that the spirit of metal died with Peter.
