Excellent post! What he said.
Have you been living under a rock for the last decade? Pantera might be a 'not as good version of metallica' (who they actually sound nothing like, so I've no idea where you got that from), but they've had a huge influence on metal in the last 15 years, fact. Countless guitar players have aped Dimebag Darrell's guitar style, and much of the whole 'metalcore' and 'deathcore' movements pilfer much of Dimebag's signature pinch harmonics. Phil Anselmo soundalikes are also ten a penny these days.
Well.. yeah.. but he forgot too many times to talk about influences.
Also Bleakest Harvest is totally right about Pantera.
V Stop acting this way with others, you're passing for a troll.
well for a dull-brained metalhead with the username "Bleakest Harvest," i'm sure there is a chasm of difference in style between pantera and metallica, but reasonable broad-minded people can understand that the 2 bands have a similar aesthetic. except the biggest difference is that pantera was not that good and metallica whips ass
I'm a 'dull-brained metalhead' for pointing out that Metallica and Pantera don't sound anything alike? Are you trying to morally grandstand on the premise that you don't care about obvious differences between metal bands because you aren't a 'dull brained metalhead', and will therefore make completely useless comparisons? If so it's you who's the dullard. Anyway, you seem annoyed by my mere mentioning of Pantera, even though I wasn't even referring to their quality but their influence on metal in the past 15 years. In attempting to be a smartass you've completely missed the point of the thread genius.
Slipknot-Though I used to listen to them and I know a ton of other people did as well. I think they brought a lot of emotion into their music. Even though there 4th CD was shit.
Smashing Pumpkins- I just remember on a local radio station they won like some ridicules amount of "cage" matches against other bands during the night. Great band.
Carcass- Simply put I think Heartwork is amazing and should be looked more so than In Flames, Dark Tranquility and Soilwork.
Others were already mentioned that I was going to post. But I will add these 3 to the mix. Even though they aren't as popular with this board (possibly?) I think they have influenced plenty of people/bands.
Are we still talking about metal influences (bands)?
At the time I was listening to them I considered them metal. Though, I know they are not now I like to consider them even a important hard rock band.
darkthrone. from the time "a blaze in the northern sky" was released, until present day, there have been hundreds upon hundreds of darkthrone clones and carbon copies, especially after they put out transylvanian hunger. not to mention that blaze, uafm, and th are all black metal masterpieces. if that's not influential or important, well...don't know what to tell you afaict.
that's my one response to this thread, since half of the replies in here are shit. (smashing pumpkins? porcupine tree? nightwish? opeth? what the fuck is wrong with you people? try picking bands that were actually important and influential, and stop naming non-metal bands when this thread is about the global metal scene you retards. clearly smashing pumpkins had a gigantic influence on the brutal death metal scene in the last 15 years, from the likes of incantation and immolation to decrepit birth.)
Hmm I always thought it was some kind of alternative rock, nothing to do with Metal and never had. I never listened to their old stuff, though.
lol it's the internet, what do you expect?
Haha you've pretty much echoed what I said in my post about the insane replies people are giving in this thread. Smashing Pumpkins are probably my all time favourite band, yet in absolutely no way, shape or form have they even been slightly influential to the metal scene, and only a nutcase would claim otherwise. The only exception I can think of to this would be Cult of Luna's cover of 'Bodies'. The most prominent band that are open about their SP influences are the horrific MCR. Aside from them and CoL's cover, I can't think of one actual metal band that have claimed to be influenced by the Pumpkins. For the record, they did have some pretty metallic moments in their day, especially on the Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness album. Anyone who needs proof should listen to the tracks 'Bodies', 'An Ode to No One', 'Jellybelly', and especially 'Tales of a Scorched Earth'. Fuckin' great band.
Anyway, I agree completely with Darkthrone. They've spawned literally thousands of clones in the past decade or so, and even if most of them are completely hopeless, their influence has been huge nonetheless.
Another thing you need to keep in mind is that influence is very different from inspiration. Cult of Luna may have covered Smashing Pumpkins to pay tribute to them as inspiration to make music, but Smashing Pumpkins probably has no bearing on Cult of Luna's sound. So they still aren't influenced by them.
ANTHRAX msot be on the fuckin list and queensryche
they did their best stuff 20 years ago man
Haha absolutely not, neither of have released anything even remotely influential in the past 15 years.
metallica's black album was 1991. not 15 years or less.
slayer's seasons in the abyss was 1990. not 15 years or less.
megadeth's youthanasia was 1994, I guess you could count that
dream theater's awake was 1994, it's possible to count that but everything they've done since then is pretty
and you realize that this is global, correct? tbh a band like dream theater hasn't been the most influential in shit, much less in the "global metal scene". same with a band like pantera
