axe is better than lopez
Axe is a good drummer but he can't come even near to Lopez.
Axe played in just one album yet !!! so how the hell could you compare him with Lopez who played on 6 albums, and you could see the development of his playing album after the other !!! Easy on Axe lol
Axe > Lopez easily. Crazy drummer. Well, in Opeth, at least. I don't know what they are really out of that. (Amon Amarth and Bloodbath... and?)
give me one reason why axe is better than lopez "easily"
Let's start by the opposite. Ok? But anyway, it's personnal, why argue. Oh yeah, sorry for the "easily", it's not true. Both are great.
Just for fuel, Axe can keep time.
(I'm not really of the opinion that Axe > Lopez "easily", but the way Lopez fudges the time in Lamentations really irritates me)
drums on D&D and GR > watershed by miles, but this is without taking who wrote how much/what mike wanted the drums to be like into consideration. axe obviously pwns lopez live.
In only 1 album axe nailed lopez and, on the other hand, the latter took too long to develop his unique style. (6 albums) Axe has been part of projects way heavier than Opeth, but anyhow he showed them he had the unique groove and touch they needed to move to a higher ground.
Besides, he saved Opeth. He's a fucking Hero.
axe has a cooler name too.
He's a hero because he saved a metal band.
Coil doesnt do much for me.....also on watershed....the mellow parts in songs are not tht stand out as before......but I still love opeth..... .....PEAC EOUT
Axe didn't save Opeth, Gene Hoglan did. Any commercial band can find a decent drummer if someone helps 'em stall for a while.
Axe rapes on The Fathomless Mastery though.
would be awesome.
+1....not in the sense of the songs...but both these albums are on the same level of not being great and not being bad...I'll tell you this, I listen to Opeth more then Metallica nowadays but I listen to Death Magnetic more frequently then Watershed.
Axe rapes without protection on a thorny wooden benchtop on the fathomless mastery.
I had DM on my ipod for about 3 days.. then I removed it.. absolute horrbile album to be honest.
back to topic:
BWP and Watershed are better than all their other albums, together.
i`ve never been in a FF conncert... and i really hate that..
I`ve seen opeth this year, it was like a dream come true, and yes... they just play live amazing... i think, with muse and radiohead, are the best bands i saw live.
but i expect in this year or the other, go into US to catch a concert of the best band in hisotry, the foos. I´m pretty sure they wont let me down.
