Greatest metal FAILs of all time

Everything by Cannibal Corpse

It's not right in this context to label everything a band has produced as failure.

"Ram It Down"? Not "Turbo"?!

Turbo was a hard rock experiment for them. It wasn't half bad as such, but it certainly wasn't a metal album by any measure.

For their day, Screaming For Vengeance and Defenders of the Faith were rivaled only by Iron Maiden's Piece Of Mind and Powerslave and to an extent also Ozzy and Dio's releases. The mid-late eighties were the end of heavy metal's dominion and the rise of death metal. The change was in the air around 1986 and fully realized within the next couple years. The old metal heads at the time split into hard rockers adrift who didn't get it and the fewer dedicated Hessians who did.

A number also drifted into the Punk world after the whole hardcore/crossover thing exposed a lot of Metalheads to that at about the same time.

Master's Hammer "Slagry" is so bad i'm not quite sure what to make of it. Very bizarre album to say the least

When we let rip with our "Metal FAILs -- Volume I," people were pissed -- mainly because we didn't include their favorite fails. So in the grand tradition of whoring ourselves for populist acclaim, and thus perhaps thousands of grubby fingers clicking on the same links, we've brought you the sequel: "More Metal FAILs" or "Son of Metal FAIL," depending on what you want to call it.

Son of Metal FAIL

I think it's time we faced the truth about failed metal. Some music just sucks. Some music is just great. This whimpy fru-fru airy silliness about "it's just my opinion" is just people freaking out when they realize other people can figure out they listen to doofus music.

Ah, but there are opinions when it comes to objectively good music, hence why I don't like Gorguts. :D

I liked the new entry, though personally I think "Symbolic" would've been a better representation of Death's failing. Still, witty and entertaining as always.
No.

Having reviewed the thread, baby Jesus is most definitely weeping at this point.

Indeed, I've found this especially difficult to talk to people about because for them, it's a touchy subject. If you explain what art in music is, they freak out and tell you you're wrong, go into a vicious babbling fit about how it's only my opinion, and so on and so forth. It's because it jeopardizes something in their lifestyle that they don't want to give up because it's one of the few things that makes their life a little less shitty and takes them further and further away from accomplishing anything that might take effort to achieve. Especially in a Hessian's sort of case, if you explain to someone how dumb TV is, they'll call you a moron and say you think you know everything, blah blah blah. I've actually been dealing with a LOT of this as of recent.

Make room on the list for Sepultura's Arise

I think that album is still decent.  That album is what I think the proper way to make a commercial album should be.  It never ends well I guess, though.

You need a separate thread for bands that are failures, or possibly, a polite note indicating that the contents of metal-archives minus the contents of the DLA equals, for the most part, failmetal.

IMO, everything by Metallica except for a few good songs

Totally agree on ARE YOU TALKIN TO ME?. Such an overrated performance. And now it has seemed to get extra attention/appreciation since Dimebag was shot.

No, everything by Metallica, except for Fade To Black.
