Shhhh, you just dislike them because they lack shirts.
I thought that Gorepoflesh album was pretty good tbh. Not something I'd listen to all the time (not that I'd be able to wololololo), but it's pretty good.
But what do I know, I don't listen to a lot of slam.
Oh how original and well thought out!
Well played sir, well played.
When theirs a load of other gutiar players in a music shop, and their all staring at eachother, wondering who isn't listoning because they can sound like sh_t.
Metal bands with deep drums, low string detuned guitar riffs, and low growls. There's a whole spectrum of pitch levels, use it! The guitars can play high with the growls, or low guitars with shrieks or singing, is fine.
When you see a buntch of noe-naturalist etheic people wearing their "cackey", camoflauge because they fit into the nearest metal type genra.
When someone is proving they play guitar and they have the most benddy, tilted, tinfoil, "generic", pick they could buy, and they buy it and they are constently loosing it. "on purpose?"
Someone who is interested in music so they buy picks, and the only thing you see is a cover band written on their picks.
I sum it , Cover Funken picks.
When Clown Possie's become a 12 person band that doesn't know who is up on stage durring the concert.
I can only agree with the loudness craze. I hate it when the levels are pushed to the max. If I want to listen to a record on loud volume there is a volyme knob I can use. I dont want the level on the actual recording to be loud as fuck.
I hate it when bands bury the bass in the mix. Im not one of those people who cant hear the bass. I have heard people claiming that the bass was so low in the mix it was hardly audible on everything from "ride the lightning" (Metallica) to "leviathan" (Mastodon). Im not one of those people - I know how a bass guitar sounds. I do dislike it when it is truly buried in the mix though, either that the sound is not distinct or that the actual volume level is to low.
Vocals to high in the mix. Can be very annoying.
Bands where all the instruments compete in the same sonic space. In metal most common in extreme death metal. Drums, guitars and the bass all compete in the lower ranges of the sonic spectrum thus making everything sound dull and without distinction.
Love songs. A meets B and it's just soooooooooo fine.
And the sad love songs. A loses B and it hurts soooo bad.
Pregressive / tech / thrash that would be so great without vocals, but mostly have vocals so terrible that I cant force myself to listen
Ya know I was thinking the same thing with 'about' slayer rip of riff wile I was watching CHIMAIRA Video the whole time, their kissing "their" ass, and I totaly agree with the part about how some times you can see that it is a total rip off just do to the circumstances. But its just plane monotany when you hear it "note for note", allthough the thought comes to mind, that I hear this comment about the 3 bands all the time!
I think your right, even if the genra of thrash, is ok if you place speed with thrash, but if you place headbanging with thrash, and then just beat the hell out of the drum speed metal. Then its no surprise that you can't even sing to the music.
Clean vocals during blastbeats... Kinda like what enslaved does every so often even though i love the band.
Really tinny guitar tones that sound like plastic.
And key changes in pop songs, usually during the last chorus.
Example = Living on a Prayer
They... they just sound really really gay.
Note- Key changes in most other contexts are epic.
Songs that don't known when to end. Repeating the chorus twenty times before the fade is just padding and wastes my time. If you're going to stretch a four minute song out to six minutes spend the last two minutes doing something interesting, dammit.
