11:54 - Overrwatcher I had to leave Knotfest after Trivium due to dehydration issues ($5 water when I'm broke), Carnifex was so fucking good. Got autographs and a busted nose. 100% worth.
11:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Everyone should stop arguing and listen to Crimson [link]
11:50 - Overrwatcher I oversimplified it quite a bit, my bad on that. Marcel is right, Opeth has growls but no other DM characteristics. DM-influenced? Definitely. Actually DM? Definitely not.
11:47 - Overrwatcher My god, people are STILL arguing about my late night Opeth post? To clarify, I meant that the average person will go "wow, death metal can be good", regardless of whether or not Opeth is DM.
10:24 - Joe Zombie Let's play a game. I'll post a track and you have to tell me if its Opeth, or Mumford & Sons.
10:08 - Mr. Strawberry Judas Priest's "Better By You, Better Than Me" is really a weird song (lyrically)
09:42 - Mr. Strawberry I'm not really sure..., but I hope no one will steal my name "Mr. Strawberry" as their band name. My name sounds really cool and smart anyway.
Nu-Metal arrived with ferocious anger back in the 90's or something, crappy bands such as Slipknot, Mushroomhead, Limp Biskit , and a long etc. drowned the metal scene with their idiotic songwriting, their dull execution and with the worst image a metal band can have (f.e. stupid dinosaur masks, ridiculous body paint, etc.) that's more o less why metal-heads fucking hate this genre. Well I said all this for one reason, I want to say that I don't fucking hate Nu-Metal because I've found a couple of bands with decent music, and right now I'll talk about one of them.
Oh no! Another nu-metal band! Great, moving on... But wait, if you actually listen to this album you will be surprised the amount of progressive elements and the incredible ambient the bass gives to the songs. I really recomend for those we really think nu-metal didn't bring anything "new" to metal. If you're really into progressive/ math/ exprimental stuff, this will be a great adiction to your library. To bad the band didn't think the same after this...
I think at one point that was the heaviest song I'd ever heard.
The production on the whole album is simply phenomenal. Bass through the roof, without losing a rounded feel. The guitars are much more rhythm oriented than normal, which just adds more layers of heaviness. Really fucking good album
