THE ONLY THING THE WORLD NEEDS IS BRUTAL DEATH METAL/GRINDCORE!!!!!
But on the intarweb I always listen to Metal Express Radio, they play all the metal genres on that station except for that stupid New Metal or Nu Metal or what ever you call that crap like those fu-cktards like Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park and their friends and minions
Hmmm, I hear some synthesizers and effects in there, metal (well at least the goth metal etc) definately doesn't have the same punk attitude of only using real instruments.
Meh, I don't like this metal too much. Just gimme old school metal like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and a bit of Metallica. Oh and Deep Purple of course!
Nim (does not limit himself to one genre of music)
In most of the cases, there are two reasons why many of today's metal bands scream / growl / yell / cough instead of sing:
1.) They can't sing
2.) They can't come up with a good melody
Sad but true. That's why I don't like modern metal, the metal bands of today can't come up with a good melody or a catchy riff anymore. So they just scream / shred. I know there are a few exceptions, but this is the case for most bands.
And Bullit, I have to admit that I have only heard "Machine Head" by Deep Purple. They made bluesy stuff too? Sounds good, I love the blues. At least we both agree that they were one of the bands that defined the sound, right? I still consider them metal, though!
Certain styles call for the sound of a horrendous evil demon lurking about like Death Metal. I agree that it does sound "not that great" alot of the time but I tune out the vocals for the most part and concentrate on everything else. Nothing is perfect. I take what's good/incredible about a certain band and try to ignore the things I don't particularly like.
