I like most music, excluding mainstream country and rap. I'm a big fan of Manowar. I like older Iron Maiden and Savatage.

Slayer Rules!!! period.

Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Immolation, and Krisiun are the fastest, most brutal bands carrying the flag of aggressive extreme metal today.

I really don't care for too much of that stuff... the screaming and growling is okay for a little bit but I like it when they sing too. I'm not too familier with the bands you posted, but I don't think that they sing too much.

My two favorite METAL bands are Killswitch and Shadows Fall for those very reasons.

Not into the aggro stuff anymore. I can still tolerate Kreator, Coroner, and Sodom.

Point well taken:) But as far as musicianship goes.. death metal artists can play circles around most neo-metal bands. I know the cookie monster vocals can get a little played. but i cant get into bands like the Deftones and all their clones who whine for a minute and then scream and turn of the distortion ona riff and call it a chorus. Im not flaming this is just MHO. Also, Nile destroys! "In Their Darkened Shrines" is a great album.

I'm a huge Slayer fan, it borderlines on worship. I've seen them 6 times and always in the front row. I'm going to see them next Friday night on the Jager tour. I could go on about them but I don't want to frighten people.

I used to like Metallica but they've done nothing but disappoint me lately so I seldom listen to them, even the old stuff.

Other bands I like are Fear Factory, Slipknot, Sepultura, Pantera, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Tool, and Iced Earth. Iced Earth isn't popular but musically they are amazing. Their songs are very complex, moreso than about any other band.

I play guitar (an ESP Jeff Hanneman) and appreciate the musicainship of death metal even if the vocal style is questionable. The guitars and double bass drumming just amazes me.

I don't like 75% of Ozzfest bands for that very reason... they all sound the same.

I like the bands I pointed out because from what I have heard they are the best at mixing the pretty parts and the heavy parts together, making each more pretty and heavy.

... if that makes any sense.

That's why I refuse to go to Ozzfest, I won't stand there listening to a bunch of garbage all afternoon. I was very fortunate this year that Slayer and Slipknot played some "off fest" shows. That way I got to enjoy the only two bands I wanted to see without going to ozzfest. The guitar riff just doesn't exist in the new metal, it's a bunch of chords most of the time. Why can't bands write riffs like Master of Puppets or South of Heaven anymore? I'm not saying it has to have cool riffs to be good music but it sure helps.

I agree, I love Nile's album. I have had that playing in my car for the past month hehe. I would love to go see them in concert sometime....if they ever stop by Houston.

I just saw Cannibal Corpse in Concert a few weeks ago. It kicked ass ~2

I agree there. The new album is great, and I like how they kept the war history theme through the entire thing.

Another aging metal head here. Lately been digging Dog Fashion Disco. Rammstein makes awesome workout music. Slayer, Testament, Old Metallica, Old Megadeth, Mercyful Fate, Pantera are just a few that will always be close to my heart.

12-01-2004, 08:46
Metallica, Disturbed, Drowning Pool, Fear Factory, Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God, Mudvayne, Within Temptation (Goth Metal, basically), Lacuna Coil, Slipknot and sometimes Meshuggah. I think I sometimes like Meshuggah because it drives my roommates up the wall.

How would you describe them?

Metal rocks!

Can't say I'm a big fan of Slayer, but Disturbed, Slipknot, old Metallica and Hatebreed have been getting alot of play on the ipod as of late.

On a side note, I'm not sure Tool or APC belong in the metal category. Both rock no doubt. I have everything they've put out, including Salival and Tales from the Darkside. I like APC too, but the politics of 13th Step and even more so with the latest release really turned me off.

Since the lines of rock and metal are more and more blurred I'm not sure where alot of these bands would fall... but here's my tastes

Metallica
Iron Maiden
Slipknot
Pantera
Mortification
Disturbed
Deftones
Tool/APC
STP
ThreeDaysGrace
Monster Magnet
Staind ( first album only!)

and there are others I cannot think of right off the top of my head

Gotta love anything put out by Blackie Lawless (i.e. W.A.S.P), AC/DC, Iron Maiden (Bruce Dickinson on leads IMHO was the best),White/Rob Zombie, Dio, and the list goes on. I will definately hafta check into some of the bands ya'll have listed as some of them I have never heard of. I guess I listen to what some of you would call "easy listening metal"! Gotta love Metal!!!

A band I'm currently listening to is Children of Bodom. I watched them for the first time open for Fear Factory a couple months ago. I stood there in the front row with my mouth hanging open watching Alexi Laiho absolutely rip. I later found out he has his own ESP signature model guitars only they're not sold in the US. I bought Follow the Reaper but haven't found any of their other albums yet. Check them out!

Children of Bodom and Iced Earth played together here several months ago. I had never heard of Children of Bodom before, but I was very impressed.

I am very happy too. I found out that Nile will be coming here in May. That is one band I really want to see.

Dimmu Borgir puts on a great live show,saw them a few times at the Graceland in Seattle-they are a small venue and always bring the serious metal shows to town.....Nile
Satyricon
Opeth
Lacuna Coil(cute singer..music sucked)
Zyclon
Immortal (incredible)
Berzerker(didn't like)
Cryptopsy (great musicians until bass rig quit)
Kataklysm (incredible)
...and a few others,missed Mayhem recently.:(

I might get flamed here but I LOVE the new Megadeth album. It sounds great compared to Metallicas' latest travesty. James and Kirk need to realize that most of the people buying their albums grew up listening to them and still like guitar solos! At least Dave understands that.


Oh back to the subject at hand. Some of my favorite metal bands are:

Disturbed
Ozzy
Seether
Metallica
Megadeth
Slayer

ChuckUles
01-29-2005, 09:11
