Metal / Re: death infact came before possessed

but as far as I've noticed not many spend their entire days thinking "Damn, those snarky fellas in Death sure think think they're crafty riding on the myth that they invented death metal! This really affects how I perceive the quality of death metal bands with actual talent!" That's a waste of time, and similar to two children arguing over who finished their chores before the other.

Sadly enough, id say that there are people here who think that way, however few. quite immature, really.

AIDS, that actually looks a lot like someone i know. i do hope it isnt because the resemblance is uncanny.

13X does have a point, if youre going to make a blanket statement that something is garbage, you should at least educate yourself on said matter so you dont look like a blithering idiot.

goodness, i had no idea it was so difficult for people of that region. perhaps we should look to this region in future years to spring up a good crop of new, interesting metal? they definitely have the inspiration.

as a form of music, i find it less than interesting. dull, even.

but as an art form, i think it has some merit. lyrics are often well thought out in the case of "underground" artists. its not something i regularly listen to but if someone decides to throw on Immortal Technique, Cage, or Jedi Mind Tricks i dont mind that much. of course the "classics" of the genre such as Afrikka, Flash, Wu Tang, NWA, Slick Rick, etc are tolerable to me as well.

really though, the whole movement is part of a subculture that i really couldnt identify with, even if i tried to. that is where these so-called "wiggers" fail. living in a 3 floor house with your own bedroom while mommy and daddy pay for everything with their 6 figure salaries is NOT "gangsta".

one of the WORST guitar tones ive ever heard in my life on their first album. the music is N*FLAMEZ dressed up to look like Grave or Dismember.

I agree more with this assesment of shows. Metal gigs are where the worst side of metal fans is best illustrated from my experience of them.

at the same time, it can be one of the best places to find good metal fans. it all depends on a various number of factors (what bands are playing, what kinds of people attend, etc).

.....this argument has been done to death, and each person has their own beliefs on who started the genre.

i just say that Possessed and Death were co-founders. Death did not rip off Possessed, and the Mantas demos are just thrash with a bit more of a growl. Master also released demos early on, giving them a hand in the creation as well.

you cannot deny then, that "Seven Churches" was the first death metal album. Master's unreleased album from 1985 wouldve been groundbreaking had it actually been released.

ill be at BB King's in New York City.

I saw "Possessed" there, and that was quite the treat. Sadistic Intent is simply crushing, as well. highly competent, if only they would record more material.

ill be looking forward to seeing Unleashed again, as they are a burst of energy. id also like to see Obituary as i never have before. if anyone is at the NYC date, dont be afraid to say hello!

ill go with what others have said here and state that metal should be more inclusive.

You mean more "exclusive"?

......damn it.

yeah. i mean exclusive.

Most of the best people I've met in life were associated with metal, but the converse is not true: not all metalheads are good people.

this is probably the best blanket statement concerning metal fans.

for every intelligent, interesting metal fan that i come across, it seems i come across 15 more who are lowlife, attention-whoring, Slipknot/Pantera-worshiping, sometimes overweight morons who look like they cant tell their ass from their neck. there is more to metal than "FUCK YEAH METALLICA BEERZ FUCK METUL FUCKIN RULEZ METALHEADZ FOR LIFE". that is what these idiots do not understand. while theyre busy swimming around in their teen angst and working at Wal Mart, others are getting a good education or a good job, and all they care about is how "different" they are from the crowd.

i dont want metal to seem as a "pretentious" or "snobby" music form, like progressive rock or indie. but it should not be the dumbass' choice either. ill go with what others have said here and state that metal should be more inclusive.

Have any of you actually listened to Lamb of God in depth? I bet most of you have just heard 2 or 3 of their most recent songs. Prove me wrong.

i dont need to prove myself to you, but since youre asking, i might as well.

i had "New American Gospel" and "As The Palaces Burn" in my library up until around a year ago (all throughout high school). while the former was slightly better than the latter, they both shared the same aspects. Pantera-like groove centered music, occasionally lapsing into bursts of speed metal, with some of the worst guitar distortion i have ever heard. Songs generally followed a verse-chorus-verse-blahblahblah pattern. Every time they would come across something which resembled a decent metal riff, they would play it for maybe 10 seconds and then delve back into the same groove garbage. It was almost as if they were afraid to thrash, or to be metal. Not to mention the music is mostly one dimensional (barring some terrible experimental ideas like Blood Junkie).

a "MODERN" metal band in their entirety. You keep on listening if you want, but i prefer the sound of an air conditioner.

hahahahaha, ridiculous.

as i head back to community college for this fall's semester, ive seen many attractive women throughout campus, but my gut instinct tells me most would respond to only 3 words; money, party, and cock.

sad, really. but all the more dumb apples for the picking.

Kanwulf is such an obnoxious idiot. I dont even need to make fun of him or anything, his actions just speak for themselves.

Assuck - Anticapital

One of the landmarks in the grindcore genre. Easily good enough to stand with Horrified, FETO, Symphonies, Need To Control, etc. Steve Heritage's maniac guitar strangling is a highlight, he plays open, dissonant chord progressions to go along with the standard thrashy punk fare. Rob Proctor's outstanding drumming is also of note, ever changing and adding a degree of violence to this highly immersive, chaotic album. Above all, the scathing growl of Paul Pavlovich calls attention to the listener's ears, spewing out rants on the state of society, human cruelties, and other such things. Available with the Blindspot 7" and 3 other songs tacked on with the reissue, and worth every penny. For fans of grindcore, this is a necessity, and i have no idea why it is not reviewed in the DLA or anywhere else on this site. Flawless in every way in my mind.
