I have to admit a fair bit of Images and Words was pretty good when LaBrie wasn't singing.
Images & Words is pure brilliance from beginning to end. One of it's only faults is a fairly obnoxious snare drum.
...And on this forum, I guess that'd be controversial.
I love the snare drum on that album. 80's-inspired cheese FTW!
Dio is a better singer than Ozzy.
Annihilator's lyrics are easily as bad as Malmsteens.
I dont find James Labrie annoying.
You're looking for the "Proven facts on metal" thread.
Wages of Sin by Arch Enemy is actually a really good album. They just got progressively worse as their guitarists did more and more wanky solos. And Angela can't sing live properly anymore.
It's great but used way too much.
bad lyrics or not, Annihilator slays.
I think Symphony X tend to get abit bland but their latest stuff is alot better. Before it was to much power metal without charachter or feel for me. Their vocalist is however awesome. One of the very best at what he does.
The problem for me isnt the sound they were aiming for it is that it is triggered (or at least it sounds like it is). The same sound thoughout the whole cd makes it annoying if one starts to think about it to much.
Better singer? Yes.
Better singer for Sabbath? Fuck naw.
They had one good album, and it wasn't even that good.
I don't think this would be that controversial, more of a rant. How the fuck did Corrosion of Conformity manage to sandwich the piece of shit that is "America's Volume Dealer" (which is an undeservingly badass title to a shitty album imo) between good albums like Wiseblood and In the Arms of God?
I second that.
Heaven and Hell was epic. Dio + Black Sabbath = Win
I like how you call everyone that disagrees with your taste or opinions a cynic, meanwhile you insult other people's taste and opinions constantly.
They had one great album, one good album, and a lot of shit.
Annihilator is like that lemon at the car lot that never really properly accelerates and gets an enormous hole blown in the radiator after 100,000. Great rhythm guitar tone on many of the albums though, IMO. Very close to what I want sometimes.
Symphony X is pretty much worthless tbh. The songs are usually a pretty decent chorus surrounded by layers and layers of that horrible, lumbering American 'intense groove' sound mixed with a bunch of old Dream Theater licks.
Symphony X's main purpose is for impressing Prog Chicks simply by knowing they exist. Though perhaps that's not always the best outcome in such situations.
I think "the oddyssey" was good (especialy the title track was awesome) and "paradise lost" was alright. I also hate their sound however. Alot of the time way to polished and perfect. And of course with such a great bass player as they have and to continuously push his bass into the very back of the production is a shame.
