I feel that this thread will stick around for awhile growing at a slow but steady pace. I doubt this thread will fade into oblivion like most.

Agreed :) I will never let it die. Another awesome death metal band from Australia of all places: Be'lakor. Only two albums out so far but both are incredible and even somewhat fresh in a genre that was going stale. Their album released this year 'Stone's Reach' is currently voted the best metal album of the year on metalstorm.ee, and I would agree with that. Their songs follow no structure (intro, verse, chorus, etc), but simply flow in a natural and progressive form, with some songs containing as many as 20 or more different parts. Couple of samples:

no surprise about Australia and metal though, the country has a rich metal history, going back to bands like Hobbs Angel of Death and Mortal Sin to modern day acts lke Be'lakor, The Berzerker and Destroyer 666

I like Tarja, formerly of Nightwish, and whoever that luscious creature is that fronts Lacuna Coil ;)


I saw LC during the "Music as a Weapon" tour (with Disturbed and Killswitch) and holy smokes... I was just floored at how good LC sounded live. And this was in a venue where NOBODY sounds good live.

today's big metal news... seriously, I can't stop laughing when I think about what might have happened if this actually were to have taken place

'World Painted Blood', the new release from SLAYER hits stores tomorrow... Crappy news for eastern Canadian fans though as vocalist Tom Araya is undergoing back surgery, meaning all dates on the Canadian Carnage tour are cancelled...

Compared to life.

Lawnmower Deth - Ridiculous
Crippled Lucifer - Ridiculous
Burning Tomb - Ridiculous
Anal Apocalypse - Ridiculous (and funny)
Morbid Angel - Ridiculous
Gorgoroth - Ridiculous

I'm not saying metal music is ridiculous (well, okay, a lot of the time it is) as it will always have a special place in my heart, but come on. Some of the band names those guys come up with are just silly in their attempt at being "evil" or whatever.

yeah because music should NEVER, EVER not be one hundred percent serious...
:rolleyes:
one person's ridiculous is another's normal... there are band names that could fall into this in every form of music... Arctic Monkeys, Nickelback, Limp Bizkit, Smashing Pumpkins, Chumbawumba... I could go on forever. Point is... it's just a name. Ultimately it's the music that matters.

Actually, it was asking one or the other. If they did it to be funny, good on them. If they were trying to be shocking and scary, they came off as more silly instead.

Haven't heard the Slayer yet, but am very much looking forward to it. The new Megadeth has some decent moments, but Dave the born again Christian/Coffee peddler doesn't hold a candle to Dave the junkie...
Oh well...
The Anvil is great, and that movie was brilliant... I hope we can wrangle some tix for their Vancouver date if it isnt already sold out...
