    Bruce Dickinson is a shitty vocalist.

    I don't like him either, few vocalists can annoy me like he can ... but the man can sing.

    I prefer Di'Anno Maiden over any of their stuff with Bruce.

    Provided he is talking about the shitty AtG worship, yeah, but there is some great metalcore.

    Beherit's Engram is one of the most important, if not the most important, black metal album of the last several years.

    No he can't. That's why I personally consider him a shitty vocalist. It's ok if others have different reasons, but this is the main problem imo.

    Isn't Down kinda shitty anyway? What's the whole deal with that band? I know teenage girls like it because there's this Phil Anselmo fag.

    The only things I care to comment about:

    - Down is great, but I'd never say underrated
    - Ghost is incredibly overrated
    - Black Metal is, 9 times out of 10, god awful. And half of that 1 time it's only bearable because it is hilarious.
    - Metalcore is only decent when it's more hardcore than metal (i.e. Integrity, Merauder, Unruh, etc.)

    I don't understand how this is an example of one of the more hardcore-leaning metalcore sounds, unless we consider Slaughter of the Soul-with-breakdowns-style-"metalcore" to be anything but overwhelmingly metal.

    Down is garbage. Pepper Keenan needs to go back to Corrosion of Conformity and stick with them until he croaks.

    Sethu's production is sterile horseshit. The drums sound like plastic and the guitars are thin as hell. It's terrible.
