    GY!BE, from what I've heard (not a whole lot) is easily my least favorite of the major post-whatever bands. Too soundtracky or something, in a bad way.

    I agree 100%. I really sat down and was like "Okay I'm gonna understand this band" because literally all of their albums are on best-of lists and they're always cited as the greatest post-rock band of all time. Every time I made it partway through one or two songs before I just got bored. Everything sounds like the intro to something that never shows up. Like they're the overture to be played while the audience is still walking into the theatre.

    And you guys who've seen me spam the other thread, I listen to a FUCKLOAD of post.

    I will absolutely check them out live and if that changes my opinion, so be it, but the recorded albums that keep getting put up on a pedestal leave lots to be desired.

    GSY!BE is one of the best bands in modern music and by far the best post rock act- particularly the first two full lengths and the EP. And yes, they are amazing live.

    You're a fucking false and your opinions are garbage. Metallica was good up until and including the fourth, and Megadeth has always been at least good.

    Fuck right off.

    Sifringer is/was tops, but Mustaine (along with Vetterli) were right up there.

    Yeah I never got the point of those either. Most of them are pretty dumb.

    I get that they're easy to make and are a quick way for a label to put out a single on YouTube without needing a video budget, but the problem is they highlight the absolute worst element of 95% of metal. There are very, very few metal bands with good lyrics, so having a YT video that's got the lyrics on screen in big letters just puts big neon lights on how stupid the lyrics are.

    99% of metal music videos are completely stupid and worthless to begin with.

    I agree about Megadeth. Not one interesting song or riff in 30 years. Give me ANY other American thrash band. Megadeth, in fact, isn't a thrash band. And you may not realize it because you've heard it so many times, but that band name is one of the stupidest and most unoriginal band names ever.
