Why couldn't these fucks have been born 100 yrs earlier and fed to turkish mad men?
To be honest, I'd be surprised if there was a mainstream American metal band who didn't like those two, or at least say so to appear legitimate.
Good news everyone, you can order the new SoaD on The End Records!
I like SOAD but I hate their latest video. Guys in black riot gear with TV faces displaying messages like "BUY" and "GOD" crashing a party and enslaving the minds of teenagers? Does that REALLY happen? Or is it just, and this is only a suggestion, baseless anti-Establishment propaganda designed to further enslave the minds of nu-metal fans and "free" them into forming opinions based on emotional reactions rather than intellectual consideration? Or is it just a good way for four Armenians to make a killing from that old "I hate the Government because, uh, well, marijuana and war and stuff" teenage anarchist dollar? Probably a nice, lucrative mix of both.
(also a main gripe of mine regarding Rage Against the Machine)
Yes.....The End does stock a few items. First it was The Darkness' album, then Slipnot's newest, 'With Teeth,' and now the new SOAD. I guess they sell, they've already had to restock 'With Teeth.'
Yeah, I do grow weary of SOAD's 'politicking.' The only song they ever wrote with a political message that meant something to me was "P.L.U.C.K."
Um, you guys do know that the band said it themselves that this album is supposed to be Darkthrone influenced right? I forgot exactly who, but it's true.
You really are the last person I would expect to like this band.
I used to love them a few years ago.
Is the reason why all you dislike SOAD because they claim to like the same bands as you, but then write music that sounds different? So Daron likes Black Metal, but that doesn't mean that the influence it has is what SOAD must sound like. If SOAD did a song that sounded just like Darkthrone it'd be crap & dishonest. At least they're being real to themselves, even if it comes across as contradictory at times (the whole anti-corporate thing while signing to Sony etc).
If there's any sort of a drama with SAOD, it's that they may be taking the piss out of their audience in 2005 by saying to think where your money goes, then putting out 2 CDs in the space of a year. The frist CD has 36 minutes of material on it. I scincerely hope the next part, "Hypnotize", will contain more than 44 minutes. Otherwise the buyer's been ripped off (the whole set could therefore fit onto a single CD). It would be indefensible if this happens for SOAD. Daron's already claimed that people would struggle to listen to the set in a single go. I've listened to their 4 albums back-to-back a couple of times now.
People aren't stupid.
I respect but don't really like SoaD
I think what it comes down to is that there are only so many riffs that sound good, and some of those are really obscure and/or difficult. So in a large enough collection of music there are going to be identical riffs even if artists don't influence eachother at all.
Running out of good riffs? No, we're not.
I heard somewhere that the members of Immolation like Slipknot. Scott Ian from Anthrax likes almost everything. I'm certain they're not the only ones. So, yes, I agree with sretamwada's post.
it's a good riff
Don't own either this SOAD song or ITNSE (though I have all 3 of emperor's other albums) ... anybody wanna upload some sort of "clip"?
Guess what? I hated both of the bands long before you said that... now I know why they suck so badly.
Examples, you wasted sperm. They were examples. There are many more examples of bands playing very obscure music with very popular influences and popular favorites, neither of which affects the musicians' sound.
And you hate the bands because you lack taste, not because they suck.
Since this is coming from a guy with a Spongebob Squarepants quote in his info, I'll laugh at that statement while fondling my braided ball hair..
Spongebob and every other form of postive entertainment for children are all we have left in this world of Janet Jackson titties and Michael Jackson court cases. That's all I have to say about that.
Enjoy your fondling...
So Thraxz, you dislike other bands too. Is there anything that you do like? If all this metal is inferior, then why are you here on Ultimate Metal? You dislike Anthrax & Immolation? Good for you, but there's a lot of others out there who'll defend these bands because like SOAD, they MEAN something to more than an "elite" fan base.
Just ENJOY the music! Just because Scott Ian's sold more CDs than you doesn't mean he's a sell out or a faker. It's because he writes music that a lot of people can relate to. Is that such a bad thing?
Also, why dislike Anthrax when your bloody pseudonym refers to them?
