    By now I also use it as a casual posting area as well. I think I've been too lazy to actually see what other threads are up lol.

    Well I didn't intend it to come across that so I apologise if it did. It just seems that you post a lot of opinions bashing classic bands/albums because you know it will get a rise out of people. but maybe I'm wrong about that and it just seems that way because this is like the only thread you post in. At least you don't post totally baseless and ignorant things like Rusty Water does. Also you do keep this thread alive which is good, it didn't see much action before you joined for a while.

    And yes I know that you went and relistened to Hell Awaits and I respect that, I just can't fathom finding Dystopia to be better than it. Maybe you could explain what you like about Dystopia.

    I never said I I liked Dystopia better did I? I just listened to it a while back and thought it was really good for a late release from a classic thrash band.

    You just said it was really good without the qualifier of "for a late release from a classic band". That makes more sense. It's obviously better than anything Slayer or Metallica have done in years, not that I'm a huge fan of it or anything.

    Christ Illusion was better than Dystopia imo... but I guess that was a decade ago.

    I probably should practice on putting things in context. I really don't always have an easy time really comparing things and saying which I think Is better. And while I do post what would be considered very controversial opinions they are in fact my opinion I mean if I was just trying to be an edgy hipster I wouldn't admit that Black Sabbath and Judas Priest are my favorite metal bands and I'd say shit like Lulu is the magnum opus of heavy metal.

    Nothing either of the big 4 bands have put out in the last two decades are as good as Katorz, Target Earth, and Post Society but I think I've mentitled that several times already.

    Probably, I pretty much skim over all the Voivod related comments.

    You're erroneously conflating 'angry' and 'aggressive' sounding music with 'angry' and 'aggressive' lyricism.

    You can play in the most aggressive thrash band known to man but exclusively sing about galactic battles.

    Really? They're so damn average.

    The first two are cool, but hardly stand out from the NWOBHM thing in my opinion. They couldn't have continued on in that vein without wallowing in mediocrity, mostly because Paul was an extremely limited performer.

    Why?

    I want to hear this band.

    We've had this debate before, lol. My thinking is that a limited vocal range does't necessarily make for limited music; if anything, it stops the music from becoming too reliant on vocal melodies (which are always less sophisticated than instrumental ones anyway). At any rate it's impossible to say how Iron Maiden would have evolved with Di'Anno, I just know I prefer his style.

    I can't get into them, despite repeated attempts.

    Damn I thought most metal heads loved Raven. Wiped out is good energetic fun.

    I do like Raven. Like = the best NWOBHM band ever.

    You make this mistake a lot.

    Agreed. That wasn't my point though. I was addressing your moronic claim that there is something 'poseurish' about being a thrash band for an extended period of time and how 'angry' and 'aggressive' can you be well into adulthood question.

    Most NWOBHM bands as far as I can tell are one album wonders or they have one album that's so much better than all the others.

    By sheer amount of good albums, I'm going with Saxon. If Motörhead counts, they're also an obvious choice.

    If Motorhead counts then so should Judas Priest, and if Judas Priest counts then they win no competition.

    I personally don't think either count, but I've seen people in here disagree.

    Also, Venom.
