    EXACTLY!!!

    All those bands on that list have influenced hundreds and hundreds of bands..no matter how sucky or gay they are..they are still important!

    Which has a more impact?

    Creating a new subgenre (like we don't already have too many) with a different sound and have a few bands follow you?

    Changing the sound of a major genre and influence thousands of people?

    It was only a matter of time before the shit hit the fan. I have to agree that the list is pretty biased though.

    Don't read them then, Neurotica! I try to break my posts into segments so people can skip what they want, and read what they want. Sorry if I like talking/reading thoughts and ideas, and not just "THEY RULE!" posts

    You know, typically in a discussion, more than one relevant point comes up. Crazy I know, huh?

    Sorry, I guess I got carried away. I don't really have real life metal friends to talk with, so I come to a new site to discuss things, and next thing I know I'm getting slammed for liking this, or thinking that. Didn't really handle it as well I should. I'll tone it down.

    Who "slammed" you for what you like? I haven't seen any of that. I've seen discrepency as to what exactly it is that you listen to, but nothing regarding the quality of your music taste. If that's true, though, that's pretty unfair.

    It's not true. He's been slammed for spouting horribly ignorant comments about genres he clearly knows nothing about.

    Kerrang is dumb; the list is half-baked.

    But that's not what's important.

    What's important is that many of you fail at reading comprehension. And are retarded.

    These are two of many reasons why heavy metal must never be allowed to take over the world.

    He goes in to a discussion about death metal, says Suffocation and Morbid Angel sounds the same (wtf?) and says that they have immature lyrics and poor song structure. Then gets indignant when people call him on his grand and ignorant assumptions.

    When I said MA and Suffocation sound the same, obviously I didn't mean 100% the same...but their both brutal death that use blastbeats all the time.

    As a metal listener who enjoys death, I can find pleasure in two bands that sound similar, but I think it's a little unfair to put them both on a "most important list" and leave of some others like Faith No More or Progressive pioneers who had a bigger impact.

    Faith No More is not primarily a Metal band, that's the main issue. But Morbid Angel and Suffocation are polar opposites when it comes to American Death Metal. Morbid Angel is the epitome of Floridian Death Metal, and Suffocation the epitome of New York Death Metal.

    2 problems with your posts.
    USE QUOTE TAGS!!! See this?
    USE THEM!
    And
    PLEASE STOP SIGNING SHIT
    OK, now that I'm done bitching for petty reasons...
    You are right. You use your posts to argue, and that's the style you argue in. You make your posts easy to read, and I, for one, appreciate it.
    Rock on!

    >>>Faith No More is not primarily a Metal band, that's the main issue.

    You say that like it's a fact, when it's just not. Angeldust had quite a few metal songs, as did The Real Thing. There's a reason every other song asides from "Epic" was never played on MTV and the radio - mainstream would never accept it. Just because the song structure doesn't fit with thrash or speed or power does not take away from their validity of metal.

    Besides, Mike Patton is one of the best metal vocalists ever. His death screams wipe the floor with most death singers in terms of pure emotion and aggression.

    We could compromise and say some songs were metal, and some weren't...but I'm not going to take away their validity just because they didn't stay in a rut like most bands.

    >>>But Morbid Angel and Suffocation are polar opposites when it comes to American Death Metal. Morbid Angel is the epitome of Floridian Death Metal, and Suffocation the epitome of New York Death Metal.

    If you're going to divide death metal by states...then I'm quite sure you could find SOME description for Faith No More. :p

    Dude, I was posting on forums and the net before they even invented quote buttons...so for years I did it this way. It's still easier and faster, and obviously everyone can see what is and isn't mine. Just habit.

    Faith No More: alt-metal, or alternative rock with metal influences... Kinda like Tool.


    Great band, though!
