    itt post about metal


    Metal.

    It is a glorious thing. Though many imposters may come, and many within our group of metal lovers may inspire hate, or spew stupidity, we can all stand strong behind true metal, be it heavy, power, thrash, speed, black, crossover, melodic, death, progressive, or anything in between.

    Here, today, we gather to discuss our god. Metal is his name, and he is heavy.

    All glory be to Metal, and may we all show our horns, humbled by its power.

    Personally my favorite song ever from black sabbath.

    That riff is just pure evil. Sounds like the end of the world.

    Personally, I don't find Mastodon's album covers to be that impressive. I mean, they're better than a lot of other bands, but there's nothing particularly special about them.

    Especially the cover of The Hunter, which I feel to be their worst album cover yet (and debatedly my least-favorite album they've released).

    Yeah, The Hunter is a bit bland but I really like their use of vibrant color.

    I mean, it's better than some bands that give the whole "dark as possible to make it more brutal" thing. While we're on the subject, favorite album covers?

    Personal favorite of mine is Youthanasia, though Rust In Peace is often more recognizable.

    as with any other aspect of metal, the right answer is "anything from slayer"

    Never really liked how extreme slayer got, but now that I've started listening to more death metal I should give them another go.

    Try Hell Awaits. It inspired a lot of early extreme metal acts (both black and death metal) plus it's not pure ultra-fast wankery like Reign in Blood (not that ultra-fast wankery is bad, Hell Awaits feels 'tighter' and more well-written than Reign).

    the best black metal album cover was created about a hundred years before black metal.

    I don't really get the hype around Slayer. Show No Mercy is probably their best album, everything else I just found drags on and a lot of songs sound the same

    I loved the album art.
    The video showing how they made the bull head is pretty cool
