The original post

Posted by selken on 17.07.2008 at 07:21
it's almost an unwritten law (and a Metalstormer law) that in order to be a true metalhead you have to like only old stuff from bands, and loathe their new stuff, but we know there are few bands that you maybe prefer their newer stuff. who knows, better production, more mature lyrics, more skilled musicianships, anything.

These are my bands

Exodus: I prefer their last 3 albums over their old stuff, of course their old stuff is OK, but I find the new ones more technical, with better riffs and more agressive. Sometimes touching the borders of melody.

Kreator: I'm a fan of old-school and melodic extreme, but in this case, I prefer their lastest 2 albums, I like a lot the melodic yet agressive riffs.

Behemoth: starting from the normal, almost generic black metal, these dudes later developed a brutal sound for the atmospheric black metal.

Hypocrisy: their latest album Virus is my fav of them all, it has better riffs IMO and more catching songs

so, post ! xD

Man, their older stuff is somehow good. I agree that they're new material destroys it, but Battles and Pure can't be that bad.

Nah, Daniell's just got a hard-on for hating on early black metal bands that don't have atmosphere and melody.


You're completely wrong. You came across me criticizing early Burzum and Immortal and drew false conclusions.. I love early Mayhem, Satyricon, Emperor, Darkthrone and many many more. Point is, they didn't release bad albums that became cult. The bands I mentioned actually had many good songs on their early releases. And they had SONGS as opposed to Immortal's exercises in chaos and Burzums exercises in sloppiness.

Actually, I'm with him too. But Immortal is are special for me. For example, I hate bands like Darkthrone and Mayhem, but I like Enslaved, Drudkh, WIITR, Xasthur and Burzum (I guess they're somehow atmospheric.)

I kid I kid. I don't quote you enough in the forums so you probably aren't used to my sarcasm...

I'm confused... He hates raw, atmosphere-lacking BM, but likes Darkthrone and Mayhem?

???

He likes some of those bands but he slags a few others, but you hear him slag the "others" more than he praises the ones he likes, so I made a joke about how he gets off on hating ALL early lo-fi black metal or whatever.

Then everyone was like "Wha?"

Nah, I don't think I need to. He stated Burzum and Immortal in his last post.

If you want to know what I think, read MY posts, no someone else's. That's a good general rule

Unpopular opinion, but Sonata Arctica. Hope that will remain intact with the new album.

There are a lot of bands in that category for me:
Accept: It was good (too much fillers), It's a lot better now, better sound, more metal, better solos, better production, better songwriting, and yes, a better singer! Mark Tornillo rocks!
Amon Amarth: It was great (Once Sent...) or average (The Crusher), it's way better now (Surtur Rising, Twilight of The Thunder God), it's like AC/DC, Motorhead or Týr, every album is more or less the same, but Amon Amarth's songwriting becomes better and better.
Arkona: Slovo and Goi Rode Goi are amazing.
Carcariass: Their first two albums were just bad produced/played death metal. Does someone know them? Their latest stuff is awesome.
Death: Scream bloody what? Scream Bloody Boring! Leprosy was ok, Spiritual healing is really good and then? Pure awesomeness...
Helloween: It was good, it's way better now, more metal. Kiske's annoying voice is so overrated.
and there are many more: Emperor, Hypocrisy, Immortal, Månegarm, Primodial, Rotting Christ, Vreid, etc.
