Assuck is trally great, however I have AIDS and i'd say that Misery Index is better than ANticapital (The band with the same name also crushes, too bad becuase of their ideology, really great guys).

their ideology? im not sure of it. could you explain?

all that aside, Misery Index is a very good release. but then, you cant really go wrong with any Assuck material. not a dud in the bunch.

also, i own 2 albums and an EP from the BAND Misery Index, and ive seen them live. pretty impressive all around (composition, instrumental talent, lyrics, etc). you can tell that theyre really into what their doing. "honest", i like to call it. quality stuff.

...and i think thats exactly why the metal of today is so awful.  It tries to please...

perhaps it could be better if artists focused on making music THEY enjoyed, and that THEY were happy with.

that is what i would like to create someday. if people happen to like it, that's all well and good, but i would foremost like to create music for myself.

Too repetitive? ASSUCK? you cannot be serious. their music constantly changes. they dont stick to a guitar part for more than 10 seconds usually. personally, Assuck is one of my favorite grindcore bands. completely crushing, brutal, nihilistic music.

id go so far as to say Assuck is one of the best grindcore bands there ever was, and ever will be. everyone here should check out "Anticapital". one of the finest grind releases ever put forth.

I imagine people would expect anus.com to be a site catering to anal sex fiends, not the sort of site it actually is.

HAH. that one had me laughing for a bit.

i highly doubt that any one band INTENDS to make music which is inherently boring, their intentions are almost always to please the listener.

we need to find ways to effectively channel that good spirit into the music.

It's the name of a black metal band.

Niden Div 187

sorry, what do you mean by that?

and yes, IW can get a bit repetitive sometimes. i give them their credit, however, and they are certainly a breath of fresh air in the wake of all of this "scenegrind".

anyone who shuns all video games on the basis of what they may have seen at arcades is no better than the mainstream which they constantly ridicule. the rule works both ways, kids.

i like Meshuggah's early efforts, up to "Chaosphere". that album was largely very same-y. one constant tempo, for pretty much the whole time. it had one or two ok songs, but was pretty unremarkable. "Destroy Erase Improve" is what i consider to be their best.

after "Chaosphere", they degenerated into sludgy, angst ridden, nu-metal "experimentation", of which held about as much interest for me as getting my hand shoved into a trash compactor.

however, hearing tracks from this new album rekindled my interest a bit, perhaps i will check it out.

Ask yourself why there have been no epic hardcore albums since 1985, and no epic grindcore albums since 1992 or so.

i beg to differ, good sir. the Cro-Mags' "Age of Quarrel" was released in 1988, and is a crushing example of hardcore punk infused with thrash metal.

i enjoy FPS games, strategy games (they get the mind going), some RPGs, and i think thats about it.

i feel i should also bring attention to good bands within the grindcore scene as well.


^ those guys are intense. they mix the best of Napalm Death and Brutal Truth, and come out with a whirlwind of barely controlled grinding madness. definitely a band to watch, if one looks to assign the "flag" of the genre to a single band.

Nasum is also great.

see, all of that Swedegrind (Nasum, Gadget, Rotten Sound, Sewn Shut), isnt necessarily BAD, per se, but the production that each band uses not only makes them sound unbelievably like one another, but it also takes away the "dirty", or "raw" feeling which good grindcore should have. Nasum and their ilk are too clinical, sharp sounding, and overproduced for their own good.

the only grind band ive found out of Sweden that i listen to on a regular basis is Birdflesh. the rest are occasional listens, at best. that region was always better for death/black metal anyway.

the word of the day, gentlemen, is "BORING".

Clearly this man has never roared down the 405 in a cherry red Corvette, with a fake blonde's silicon boobies lolling over his arm as he snorts another blast of mysterious white powder from the ashtray, thinking about his stock options and how he'd look on a cross.

Loser. African-American. Take your negative ranting and go to someplace where they care like, uh, I guess no one on earth cares anymore. You're obsolete.

how did you know what i did yesterday evening?

Of other Slayer…

Seasons is the first Slayer album that lacks clear identity, and has an almost comical or happy sounding element at certain times. It has its inspired moments, as like the DLA says, it is the last album that shows any strength of spirit, but sometimes the faster parts just seem reactionary to criticisms of South of Heaven. I think it was the first album that was clearly influenced by what the fans and record labels wanted. And that clearly means that by this point, Slayer's fan base was infiltrated by idiots. It's a conflicted album. It's not entirely terrible but fails to meet the always high standard they were always known for. Seasons is best appreciated once in a while and not immediately after an earlier Slayer album.

Divine Intervention is even more conflicted. That album finds an aged Slayer frustrated that it doesn't just come as natural and as easy to them anymore. They do some goofy things in song writing in an attempt to give the album an individual identity and not be a remanufactured pseudo-Slayer album like Seasons was, while at the same time trying to replicate the emotions of previous albums. Like Morbid Angel's weaker efforts, there are some individual moments that in themselves are listenable by virtue of intrinsic talent of the musicians (and probably nostalgia on our parts) While this album often borders on the unlistenable, it clearly shows Slayer haven’t lost the inherent ability to write good riffs; they instead suffer from a loss of focus, and don’t have the energy or commitment to metal’s ideals to put forth the effort to write good compositions. I would say it is worth a cursory listen from time to time. I usually shelve it for about six months, dust it off, listen and think it’s not so bad, end up burning it, but usually inside a week I end up throwing the CDR out the window at speed.

In Diabolus in Musica, emotionally Slayer actually sound re-energized. Like a homosexual who has finally come out of the closet and no longer has to live a lie, Slayer are free to include modern elements inspired by the likes of Slipknot and Korn, which Slayer in their weakened state actually appreciate. Unlike Morbid Angel, Slayers absolute worst still has the ability to present superficially good, singular riffs in their signature style(Domination has some cool “Morbid Angel” riffs but Heretic shows Trey Azagthoth is in essence brain dead and can’t even copy his own sound anymore. He has clearly done more drugs than Slayer), but the playful hip-hoppyness and post-thrash clichés are beyond insulting. The rest of their career is a product of the same formula that went into Diabolus; Nu-metal + some superficially distilled element of "old Slayer". Honestly, you could transport Christ Illusion back to 1998 and Diabolus to 2006 and they would receive the same basic reception. I haven’t listened to any of these three enough to know which is best, but from what I remember, the most overtly offense rap-metal efforts are found on Diabolus.

Diabolus is shit, compressed and put onto a CD-R. fucking horrible album.

i found myself actually enjoying 2 or 3 songs on Christ Illusion, believe it or not. some of them show signs of the old spark that faded oh so long ago from Slayer's spirit.

but they will 99% surely never match their old days again.
