    Omg, I don't like doom so that means I don't like metal.

    I don't like what I've heard of Saint Vitus, but I'm totally okay with the accusation of not liking metal.

    Musicality > Genrefication

    Accusing someone of being a poser for having different preferences is the most hipster move you can make, by the way.

    I was actually referencing "If you are a false, don't entry."
    It's Sarcofago lyrics.
    Just keeping the spirit of everyone being a dick to each other alive.

    I like this guy.

    I also agree about the slower tempos intensifying things. Slower tempos can sound absolutely crushing.

    Fucking Yob dude...One of my favorite and memorable sets from MDF last year. But, dont know if I agree with the Portal comparison...Portal is just...Portal. Fucking untouchable.

    THIS. WHOLE. POST.

    Im very picky when it comes to trad doom. A lot of it I cant get into, but there are some that really hit that sweet spot with me. I actually prefer stoner doom to traditional doom, but thats because Im a false.

    Stoner doom is good in doses, but the problem I have with it is acts like Electric Wizard who as my friend Brian puts it

    I'm no where near as 'extreme' in my dislike of them, but I just can't stand this 'heaviness for its own sake' without any substance thing that so often goes on with bands like them.

    How is this substance less, boring, and "heavy for its own sake"?



    Fucking perfect.

    I should have made a noted exception for their self-titled :p

    but stuff like Dopethrone? Unlistenable.

    The only thing that bothers me about the wiz is about once per album they have one extremely long instrumental that's usually fucking noises and static. I like the gigantic heavyiness of dopethrone and come my fanatics... But their last two have become my favorites. I really don't think many bands do exactly what they do either but whatever.

    Dude I'll take a wall of amplifiers, botique fuzz pedals, a reefer cloud and a tall pint of stout over a whole bunch of elites standing akimbo with an occasional head nod any day of the week.

    This is what I live for.:kickass:

    I enjoy the occasional noise/static instrumentals. I prefer the first 3, everything after hasnt really stuck with me. Black Masses have some catch tunes, though.

    I posted a Vitus video and said if you don't like it you don't like metal, but don't know how it got taken seriously...

    especially coming from me and all.
