Anybody listen to Metal here?

Postby Wawizzle on Mon Feb 18, 2008 12:56 pm

I am a big fan of Death and Black Metal and I have to wonder if it calls the attention of any of my fellow Pastafarians.

My favorite genres would really be Melodic Death Metal and Symphonic Black metal, but there really is a lot of metal to go around.

Favorite bands would include: The Black Dahlia Murder, In Flames, Necrophagist and Brain Drill.

I'm afraid most would say their tastes are somewhat softer than that, but there are probably quite a few metal fans around here.

I prefer mostly classic metal, and I see a couple bearable nu-metal bands around nowadays.

I was at first a gigantic Metallica fan, who disliked Death metal and all genres of the like.

But then I started getting into heavier and heavier bands until I am where I am now :D

What do you mean by "classic metal"? What genres/bands would that include?

ummm... mostly metallica and teh like.

I'd say you'd have to define 'metal' first, as it is a somewhat plastic term.

En mateno de hela ero, per la forĉo de espero, venas viglaj pastafaroj, vere fluganta gefratoj.
Ah, vi flugu, Nia Monstro! Vin observas milionoj serĉiantaj vermiĉeloj, per espero kaj per amo.
Kaj la bona pastafaro post la malfermita pordo, trovos la eternan vivon en pastafara paradizo!
Pastafarier aller Länder, vereinigt euch!

Well.. I'm making popcorn at the moment, and I have to listen to it pinging off the inside of the metal pot to know when it's done. That count?



Actually, I've seen Metallica live, but mostly I moved more towards NIN, Tool, APC etc since then. I'm a big Alice in Chains fan, if they count as Metal. (Jerry Cantrell was the opening act when I saw Metallica.)

Sorry, but I cannot stand JfaC.

AiC kicks ass, even though Layne is dead. The new AiC isn't too bad, and the singer has some friggin' huge shoes to fill.

Some of the best from 'Grunge'.

If we are leaning towards ordinary metal, there are some "softer" bands that I like, such as

Nine Inch Nails
Breaking Benjamin
Seether
Three Days Grace
Korn
Slipnot

It's pretty cool, I am going to see Breaking Benjamin, Seether, and Three Days Grace in concert tonight, provided I get over this damn cold in the next 5 hours

I'd say Seether is more post-Grunge.

It's like a new iteration of Nirvana, just not as cool.

I still like Seether, tho, don't get me wrong.

Disturbed is metal, is it not?

Rather good, as melodic metal goes.

Wow - & I foolishly thought you might have been referring to the likes of Black Sabbath/Ozzie, etc. Or the original metal band, :worship: Led Zep. :worship: :fsm_rock:

Guess I'm showing my age! :cry:
