    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.

    Metal up your ass.

    it's the classic "hardcore-er than thou" that existed since the 80s hardcore scene. fortunately it only occurs in niches now. In popular culture with deathcore and that garbage it's not about being brutal it's about having the longest breakdown while maintaining the catchiest (yet shitty) lyrics and choruses. that's what brutal means in that scene

    Great opening post, Vedi.

    I'll contribute some Opeth, Decapitated, and two melodeath tracks. I know Opeth have already been posted, but I am going to post another song, from a different album.

    probably posted heaps in the last thread but

    this is probably the last time you will see all these men on stage together, considering most of these guys probably only have a few more years in them for constant touring and then it's retirement time

    then we can begin the age of BRVTAL HARDC0RE metal being dominate

    Edited:

    also putting some megadeth on the front page because melodeath is posted too much

    Well consider they all started in the 1983 while the stones started in 1963 and they are still touring
    They could keep going for a good while, we don't know yet

    also this just in IWABO goes back to their "black metal roots"

    Annoys the fuck out of me when people ask wheather I'm into metal, to which I reply with a yes, and they continue to ask me weather I like bands like The Blackout, Bullet for my Valentine, etc.

    Lmao he is

    for benefit fraud

    A graph of Maiden's frontman quality would be a vertical line after di'anno.

    Edited:

    Apperently the last five bands he's been in are all named after Maiden songs.

    so many jerks in my area who have never heard the first 2 albums. it's a shame, since i think purgatory and wrathchild are great.



    don't know if it's already been mentioned anywhere but there's a new Hibria album out for anyone who loves brazilian power metal and dreadful lyrics. not as good as Defying the Rules, but that'll take some beating.


    they've got a new bassist too :(

    the more I listen to Defying the Rules the more it sorta bores me. I dunno why. I gotta try getting into it again. I like the US "retro" stuff more (Cauldron (canada) and Holy Grail)

    Also first two maiden albums = best albums :)
