Metal / Re: Mathcore

I think the last couple Death albums should be thrown into this category as well, if for no other reason than spite.

its pretty much spite then, because Death's last 2 albums (which im guessing youre referring to) are nowhere NEAR this style.

do your homework.

in theory, this seems like a good idea. throw away all convention, go back to basics, and just write in a free-jazz/avante garde style.

in practice, 98% of it is simply annoying cut-and-paste rubbish with no direction.

That was a marketing tact for simply one of their albums. I'd recommend listening to Leave Scars, one hell of an album. It has the aggression of Kreator's Endless Pain and the death metal abrasiveness, as well as the clarity, of Hell Awaits. Interestingly enough, one of the songs sounds like "Kill Again."

everyone keeps telling me to listen to that album. ive heard "Darkness Descends" and "Time Does Not Heal". both were boring overhyped garbage. i dont have a desire to hear any more of their music.

Gallhammer is pretty good stuff. despite the fact that people will automatically latch onto them because the band is made up of 3 girls, they manage to create brooding, evil music. definitely harkens back to the days of Hellhammer. i give em a thumbs up.

id say youre mistaken. Opeth is much more pretentious than DMB.

i tried about a year ago to see what all the fuss was about with Opeth. i heard 2 albums, and i couldnt really tell the difference between the 2. there are some instances where they come up with some sort of melodic passage that seems like it might go somewhere, but then that passage is cut off by more noodling.

really, i dont have as much of a problem with Opeth as i do their legions of insipid fanboys who proclaim them "the best death metal band", when they are BARELY metal at all.

they should just drop all of the distortion/growling and make albums like "Damnation" from now on. itll still be really boring, but at least they wont be mucking up the death metal world, and at least theyll finally realize what kind of music they should be playing.

I really dont like Dark Angel. just play as fast as you can and brag about how many riffs you have on an album. right. thats deep.

"Gary Monardo's Record Vault Shirt" from Crush, Kill Destroy samples everyone's favorite "Weeping In Heaven" lyric.

haha, i just listened to that song, youre right. i never noticed it before.

thats a great album though. serious music meets nonserious lyrical content.

and youre right, back on topic. thoughts on?

Agathocles - Mincer
Abigor - Orkblut - The Retaliation
Revenge - Infiltration.Downfall.Death

I think the absurdist humor in "powerviolence" is kind of analogous to the way black metal overdoes their evil imagery and death metal uses gore in hyperbole, though bands like spazz and charles bronson are more subversive.

Infest and no comment are the antithesis of Metallic grindcore, just stripped down fast hardcore. Even if they are preachy, the lyrics are pretty accurate.

i like how you use the term "powerviolence" in quotes. i dont regard it as a serious term. i think one of the dudes from MITB said it as a joke when describing their music, and it caught on. personally i just call it all grindcore.

and ive never really got the hype about Charles Bronson. theyre just your typical fast hardcore band with one of the most annoying singers i have ever heard.

SPAZZ is an example of how not to use a sampler.

Random Profanatica and D.R.I. samples with tons of other random movie/TV sound bytes. Kind of annoying.

Infest, No Comment, Bucket Full of Teeth, and Yacopsae are the powerviolence bands I'd recommend.

Yacopsae is pretty good. and yeah sometimes Spazz go overboard with the samples. some are pretty funny.

where does Spazz use Profanatica samples? id like to see if i have the songs.

and maybe Man is the Bastard

Taake has some good ideas, and some good riffs. Theyre not at all like Satyricon (nothing can be that bland), but they need some tightening up in the songwriting department, judging from Doedevskad (the only album i own by them).

Man is the Bastard is pretty unique grindcore. the fact that they dont employ guitars makes them like a punk Necromantia. not bad at all. there was a lot of good stuff coming out of the early 1990s "powerviolence" scene, such as Spazz, Infest, Dropdead, and Capitalist Casualties. you just have to focus on the music and leave out the preachyness (or in Spazz's case, get past the fact that they were a bunch of goofs).

Malevolent Creation - The Ten Commandments & Retribution

i have Retribution. pretty decent album, though not really distinguishable from the crowd. the guitars are mixed far too low, and are overpowered by the drums. shame, as there are some tasty riffs on display.

No, it doesn't make sense -- thrash and speed metal are totally different.

Idiots always misuse terms, even in 1984. But among the smart people, usage was clear.

Some people were actually calling Metallica and Slayer black metal back then too. Should we start doing that also?

The ignorance of people astounds me.

it was ignorance because subgenres were not as developed as they are today. like that split called "Death Metal" with Helloween, Running Wild, and Hellhammer. only Hellhammer is remotely close to death metal by our standards today.

hindsight is always 20-20.
