    Parallels between metallica and IF:

    -both bands release three original full-lengths that kick ass but don't get much attention
    -on their 4th original full length they get some measure of genre credibility
    -5th original full length is more mainstream but still awesome
    -6 and 7th are much worse

    Hopefully, this doesn't mean IF's next album will be a peice of dog shit in a jewel case.

    I think it's a bit pointless to compare the music careers of In Flames and Metallica. Anyhow, I've seen In Flames more times than Metallica.

    So if this is right we're in for the IF equivalent of St Anger next? Oh shit....

    And yes Arch, it is pointless, but this is a message board, we're hardly solving the world's problems here.

    No actually the album sequence is wrong.
    Lunar Strain
    Subterranean
    Jester Race
    Whoralce
    Colony
    Clayman
    Reroute
    STYE


    Kill em all
    Ride
    Master
    And Justice
    Black
    Load
    Reload
    St anger

    By my count thats eight, considering LS and Sub are two different ep's that were later released together. So technically STYE was IF 's ST ANGER. So whatever comes next will be something completely different. Do the Math.
    Hell If you get really techy about it The Garage days Ep could be counted. Then that would give Metallica 9. Dont say it doesnt count because its an Ep because then you cant count LUNAR TRAIN or SUB. Semanitcs are a bitch my friend.

    Actually I don't count Subterranean as a full length, and there's little you can say to change my mind about that. 5 IF-length songs making up 21 minutes do not a full length make (Subterranean), whereas any idiot can see that Lunar Strain is a full length.

    Semantics are a bitch? Yuh-huh. :Smug:

    You're not making a whole lot of sense there, boy. Let me clarify. AlphaTemplar was referring to FULL LENGTH STUDIO RELEASES, therefore -

    Lunar Strain (a full length NOT an EP)
    Subterranean (an EP NOT a full length)
    Jester Race
    Whoracle
    Colony
    Clayman
    Reroute
    STYE
    Total = 7 FULL LENGTH ALBUMS

    Kill em all
    Ride
    Master
    And Justice
    Black
    Load
    Reload
    St anger
    TOTAL = 8 FULL LENGTH ALBUMS

    See, numbers... not same 7... 8... Confusing but true.

    So how else is one to interpret '.............wanker', other than the poster of the comment being an ass at that juncture. My problem was in regards to the lameness of the insult '.............wanker', if I'm going to be insulted, I like people to be more creative and/or funny than that. Rude? Huh? When? And no, you shouldn't care about what some guy on a forum thinks of you. Be a man - be who you are and don't give a fuck! :D

    Well havent you ever like JOKED with somebody after they were being a smartass and called them and ass or wanker or something. I guess not. Thats just what me and my buds do and I didnt figure youd actually think i was serious.Unless I was British I would never take the word Wanker seriously.

    The fact that this went beyond two posts is so disturbing...

    Thanks . ....Wanker. :D

    Anyway IF cant be compared to Met anyway because Colony and Clayman And RTR were all twenty times better than Black, Load , and Reload.

    Yes, I have joked in such situations, but I don't really know you well enough to know that your'e joking or not. And I didn't get upset by the 'wanker' statement, my 'dumb' statement was merely a comeback to your statement. Let's chalk it up to a misunderstanding.

    Oh, and you can compare IF and Met- IF slays Metallica - END OF STORY!

    HAHA okay. You are right If is still releasing stuff people can actually listen too. And Met hasnt doen that in years. STYE may have not been great but still beats the hell outta St Anger.

    Damn right. The last truly good Metallica album was in 1988 - 17 years ago!!! Before IF was even a gleam in young Jesper's eye. The Black Album I felt had a few good songs, but too much filler. Load and Reload were totally forgettable. St Anger wasn't great, but it makes surprisingly good drinking music! STYE, which to me is easily IF's worst is better than anything Metallica have released in that 17 year span. 17 years... Wow I feel old.
