Most of you were polite about the rap threads. So I'll be polite about this one. In the same way that a lot of gangster rappers and people who listen to it are posers that live in the suburbs, these death metal people are just as poserific.

orchestral metal?

isn't that an oxymoron. Last time i checked all of the metal bands that had worked with symphonies and orchestras were SELL OUT BANDS (i.e. Metallica).:rolleyes:

What kind of bullshit music do you listen to?
REAL METAL. Slayer, Megadeth, Pantera, 80s Metallica:sneaky:

and other semi-mainstream metal/hard rock bands like Disturbed, Godsmack, etc. I'm really into all types of music though, so i could go from listening to Slayer's Reign in Blood one minute to 2pac's Me Against the World the next...I like almost everything, with the exception of modern country and classical music. Most modern hip-hop turns me off too - stuff like Bow-Wow, Omarion, Kanye West (I actually liked him before he made a fool of himself bad-mouthing Bush). I also dislike most mainstream rock (i.e. Nickelback, the "new" Greenday, and ALL Emo music:sneaky:

If I could make a living by playing a musical instrument, I certainly wouldn't have a scowl on my face.

I'd be laughing my ass off every minute of every freaking day, and I wouldn't wear black all the time either.

What does "PUBITANICAL" mean?

First off. Ben, download a song from dimmu borgir called Vyredesbyrd.

Elvis, its Puritanical. I'm assuming that if it had to do with pubes, it wouldn't be metal

Oh and again, Ben, it is real metal. Its ****ing intense. Slayer is good. Megadeth is awesome. Metallica has always sucked. Iron Maiden. But you forget to include newer metal. Mudvayne, Type O Negative, Marylin Manson. Thats much better than Godsmack. Modern hip hop sucks. Its all about old school. KRS one, Easy E, Dr. Dre. Good old stuff.

at least its original ......

i got a good giggle today when "drop it like its hot" came on funk radio (am) , the ORIGINAL version ....not the snoop stuff ....

lets put it this way , how hardcore is a rap song when its based of a old police song sample ..

even worse , when a rapper pulled a sample from a JOURNEY song ......

it was never this bad , i remeber when rap was VERY diffrent ...and not trying to sell music to the fat white kid eating a ho hos in his room lamenting his parents because he cant have a new BMW for his 16th birthday...i remeber when rap didnt give a shit about selling records ....

Exactly. Now, I love the classic Metallica - albums like Ride The Lightning, And Justice For All..., etc. but pretty much everything since 1991 just hasn't been...well...metal. And when metal is part of your name, well, it doesn't work well when you make country music (i.e. The Unforgiven II, Fuel, etc.)

But you forget to include newer metal. Mudvayne, Type O Negative, Marylin Manson. Thats much better than Godsmack. Modern hip hop sucks. Its all about old school. KRS one, Easy E, Dr. Dre. Good old stuff.
I like some of those bands too, but don't tell me that Mudvayne or Marylin Manson are any better than Godsmack, because they aren't. Mudvayne pretty much sold out too, I mean "Happy" was almost TOO radio friendly, and while Manson had some good stuff that I liked, I've never really liked that whole black/death/devil/evil/anti-christ/scary music stuff, just like Rob Zombie, I liked some of his stuff with White Zombie, but not much of his solo stuff. Godsmack has a great vocalist and some pretty good songs (Straight out of Line, Awake, Voodoo, etc.) Their lyrics could be better, but hey, maybe they'll get better...

Some modern hip hop is good (i.e. most Southern Rap:sneaky: ). I like some 50 cent songs, because he knows how to craft a really good pop/dance song, but I'm also really into Houston Rap right now (I've always like Chopped and Screwed rap ever since I heard Three 6 Mafia do it (who by the way have a pretty good song out right now, "Stay Fly")) and Paul Wall, Mike Jones, and Slim Thug are pretty hot right now. David Banner too. I like krunk rap too because its great party music and sometimes it actually is good rap music (i.e. the lil jon song "Roll Call" with Ice Cube, its a perfect song, its modern and old school at the same time).

I don't particularly like WAY old school rap that much. I like pretty much everything after (and including) the Dr. Dre Chronic/Cypress Hill era when they made rap what it is today (real beats instead of rapping over drum loops and turntables).

I listened to metal when we didn't even know what to call it! Late sixties, early seventies. Groups like Uriah Heap, Black Sabbath,Troggs, Some Zepplen but it was iffy, Cream, Vanilla Fudge, and many more. I was the guy listening to FM album rock, while most were still tuning in AM top 40!!:cool2:

Whatever, metal weirdos have a right to be just as bad and phony as fake thugs so I won't hate on either of them.

Dimmu Borgir is pretty good. If you want fast, hard heavy metal with some pretty cool classical music stuck in there, it's a good choice.. They're talented.. I don't know a WHOLE lot about them but I have an album or two.

And I agree with the old-school rap being better than the new. Rap was more unique back then. Now it all sounds far too similar.

I agree!!!

I grew up during the old-school rap days so to speak, which was during the early 1990's. It made sense then, it was about something more than the same bullshit party that new rap talks about. Sure the old-school rap had the violence and expanded ego, but it was something that just made sense during those times. Rap nowadays doesn't offer anything exiting, or even original...
