    Evaluating the entire career, I would have to agree.

    Enslaved at their peak is pretty high up there, unfortunately they really only have two truly great albums in Vikingligr Veldi and Below the Lights. Everything else outside of Frost and early demo work is pretty meh.

    The wankier Enslaved got, the better imo.

    I need to listen to more Immortal. I only have Pure Holocaust, which is a killer album. But everything else I've heard from them, I enjoy quite a bit.

    Of the big second wave bands the only one I've never got into is Mayhem. I still think everything up to and including DMDS is decent though.

    Enslaved and Darkthrone are by far my favourites. Both have a bunch of great albums and both have a fuck load of other albums that are at worst average but generally quite good. Quality and quantity.

    I fucking love the fuck out of Throne of Katharsis newest. It's just so dark and brooding and never stops being that.

    Enslaved destroys Burzum in all manner of sound. Burzum is probably the most over rated band in history along with Sabbath and Priest.

    Oh how many enemies did I just make!?!

    People claiming Priest are overrated are just as silly as that opinion. You can't have both words "Priest" and "overrated" in one sentence.

    My controversial opinions:
    Slipknot is a good band and The Gray Chapter is a great album. People just like hating things that are popular.

    The use of growling vocals by bands like Between the Buried and Me, Agalloch, and Thou are inconsistent with the music; I suspect they only do it because they couldn't find a proper singer.

    Younger audiences are fooled into thinking that anything with a clean break in it is some how "progressive" even though metal bands have been doing that for decades.

    "Technical" whatever = ADHD

    Pantera is only popular again because of Dimebag, and Dimebag is only popular again because he's dead.

    Wrong on all counts.

    I was gonna tell you that youre wrong too, but that would be like putting a dog's face into his own shit on the floor. The dog knows what it did was wrong.

    I like Psycroptic, don't get me wrong, but they sound more like technical metalcore than technical death metal.

    ... lol! For the thousandth time kido, vocals are not what define the style or sub-genre of the music. So aside from some of the core vox(which a shit load of DM bands incorporate), how the fuck do Pyscroptic sound like a metalcaore band to you? :lol:

    Thanks for saying the exact same thing as i did.

    First two are tech brutal death, rest are coreish. Not bad or anything but just not as interesting to me.

    I don't pay attention to every post. I'm not talking just the vocals in Pyscroptic, the instruments too, but that's just my opinion.
