Is it just me or does a large majority of black metal suck?

    I can't listen to that particular song right now, but in general yeah Liturgy have better riffs than 90% of black metal.

    As someone that has actually listened to a lot of black metal I can objectively state that this is false.

    Ok, that Generation song is basically a twangier Meshuggah. It's clearly not even trying to be black metal. The riff isn't amazing, but it's undoubtedly a better riff than most black metal riffs just on principle alone, even if the song is almost nothing beyond that riff. I'd take an hour of that over an hour of Dark Funeral or Hate Forest riffing any day.

    You'd think with all those big tiddy goth girls you hang out with, you would at least be able to have sex with one of them once in a while

    Phil is cool, he's actually a better singer...he had an incredible range in the late 80s into the early 90s and I personally enjoy his later vocals as well even though many don't. Glaze is great as well, no need to turn it into a competition

    Anselmo had one of the best vocal performances in metal on Cowboys from Hell tbh

    What the fuck?! You're the first person to agree with me on that.

    There is very little reason to disagree with that. He, along with the rest of the band, had a ton of versatility on Cowboys from Hell and that was an aspect of him that became sorely missed on the future albums.

    If you want a really bad opinion, it's that Phil's vocals on CfH were somehow an outdated element of the album due to his use of the higher register which is something I tend to hear from many Pantera fans.

    I agree about the versatility. It's why I like that Pantera album the most of all the ones I've heard and that includes some of the Terry Glaze material.
