Want an opinionated metal elitist to give you their opinion on your favourite band? Want to ask us a question? Go for it! We’re ready for anything.
Hey there, sorry for the random message, but will you take a second to check out DESIGN THE SKYLINE signed to Victory Records? They are my favorite band, and the members are soo nice. I really think you'll like them! I have a link to their Facebook page on my Tumblr, please go and check them out and give them a LIKE! <3
Lmfao, no. You’re a fucking faggot. Shit like that shouldn’t even be considered metal. If you’re trying to use this as some sort of pathetic promotion, then I suppose you’ve succeeded, but honestly you’ve come to the wrong place.
Are we talking about the death metal, trash, I mean thrash, metal, or grindcore versions of this band? Because they’re all split up, and utter shite. Just saying.
Here is this abomination that has been circulating around my facebook. It claims it’s ‘folk metal’, and all I can see it as is ‘Fail Metal’. All folk metal is for fucking faggots anyways, but…. Here we go. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, fuckers.
I took the pleasure of sending an email, it said,
"This is quite possibly the worst ‘composition’ I have ever heard in my life. Words seriously cannot describe how terrible this is. Whoever has made this should kindly sacrifice themselves to the gods, because they are not worthy. Upon listening, I physically cringed, and felt simultaneously sick to my stomach. The words ‘give up’ and ‘go kill yourself’ come to mind. First of all, there is no enthusiasm in the first 40 seconds of the ‘song’. In PROPER ‘folk metal’, when one sings ‘hey’ there is enthusiasm, not just ‘hey’ said by someone who sounds like they’re on their death bed. Second, there is no use in timing, whatsoever. Third…. Recording quality? It sounds like it was recorded inside of a tin can- you obviously have no clue how to work the equipment you hold. Your guitar tone is absolutely horrid, and need I say there is no skill? Whoever is playing the drums needs to go back to square one, it’s called a metronome, buddy. Let’s talk vocals. Whoever is doing the clean vocals should have his voice box ripped out, as he is not worthy of a voice. The growling is mediocre at BEST. The way they over lap is absolutely terrible. You have literally failed the Gods with this horrific abomination. Why would you be proud of something like this? I wouldn’t share this with Helen Keller. This is not folk metal, either. At best, this is some sort of crusty punk. Darby Crash comes to mind. This band is a disgrace. There is no talent, and you will never, ever have talent if you’re putting this up and actually trying to sell it. I really do hope this is some sort of sick joke. Who in their right mind would support this? Who would be proud to have their name associated with THIS? You are not musicians, you are animals who cannot be tamed. A true disgrace to everything that ever was and will be FOLK METAL. A embarrassment to the Gods. Take this down, or you shall be punished. Stop trying, you have failed this genre of music. Also, you shouldn’t use other people’s photographs as your picture, it’s a violation of law."
If you’d like to spread the hate, this is their facebook.
Happy hunting kids!
-Opinionated Metal Elitists
Not so sure how to feel about that.
No, i’m not going to debate, I just want to know your opinion of them. :)
Every. Single. Album. Sounds. Exactly. The. Same.
Let the games begin!
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?
Being an opinionated metal elitist.
And under new ownership. Let’s do things a little differently now. Instead of submitting bands all the time, pick a band, and share your opinion with us? If you love them, hate them, love one album that they released, but loathe everything else? What if you just really love/hate a musician? Well, this is where you express yourself! All you have to do is submit!
What is your opinion, followers?
*note, this doesn’t mean there won’t be replies for bands you request opinions on, we just want to hear tour opinions too! Oh, and don’t ever stop sending hate mail, it makes us laugh.
How about Children of Bodom?
Arguably one of the more popular Finnish melodic death metal bands. They started out sounding influenced by black metal and atmospheric metal, but now are releasing albums that are undeniably more thrash inspired. Their first three albums are what allows them to remain notable inspiration for other bands, but with the complete and utter shit they’ve been releasing lately, such as Blooddrunk, where it literally sounded as if the members were drunk. Follow the Reaper was probably their peak, pleasing any power metal fan with with solo’s that don’t make your ears bleed, heavy riffs, and the technical neoclassical keyboard. The more albums they release, the less inspired everything sounds, less drive. As far as lyrics go, they’ve never, ever had brilliant lyrics, it’s always been some half ass attempt to express hatred and anger, nothing original there, just sounds like an angsty teenager writing in their journal.
Let’s talk a little bit about the members. First of all, this is another band that relies partially on ‘sex appeal’. Alexi, for whatever reason, attracts women -and men- of all ages for no reason whatsoever. Now, despite his ‘sex appeal’, he hardly is the most original soloist. His vocals weren’t half bad- half the time. After awhile it just sounds like a tortured cat, and he’s pretty much completely lost all aggression he once had. Roope seems to have the upper hand as far as soloing goes, but he’s not as ‘pretty’ so he doesn’t get half the hype(but he gets more recognition than Alexander ever did). Janne’s keyboarding is sometimes mildly talented, but other times it’s just completely corny and either over done, or not necessary. Jaska started out strong, but over time he’s somehow manages to fall into the whirlwind of only thrash drumming. Now for Henkka, well as goes for many bands, he is simply always lost in the mix.
Mediocre band that has had their good albums, but are deteriorating (and not fast enough). If you’re in love with this band, you’re either just starting to listen to ‘metal’, one of their ‘die hard’ fans who wouldn’t care if they recorded themselves taking shits and mixed in melodies in between, or you simply have tunnel vision and want to fuck Alexi.
So do you guys like Dio? And the albums he produced with Black Sabbath?
A majority of his material is good, Dehumanizer wasn’t very solid though. For someone who’s music career spanned 40+ years, he was fairly consistent, even though he spanned a lot of styles and genres. His voice didn’t drop off and sound like shit like most musicians do after only 20 years.
What do you think of Wolfmother?
The fact that they’re rock and this is a metal blog?
What do you think of Edge of Sanity; specifically Crimson II?
Good submission, I applaud you.
First, let me say this will surprisingly be one of those few and far between posts we will make that has little to no negativity behind it, so enjoy it while you can. With that being said, Crimson II is pretty good, but I don’t understand the hype behind it. I’m not bashing it whatsoever, I just don’t understand why that is seemingly the only thing this band is known for, either that or Crimson. Their first few releases are much more deserving of that praise, simply because it was rather groundbreaking and original material. Edge of Sanity is probably one of the most horribly underrated death metal bands in my opinion. Rarely mentioned, even more rarely praised, at least in my experiences. I feel like they could deserve more respect and recognition, they were too unique and influential too be swept under the rug like they are.
Reverend Bizarre were a unique band I’d say, they blended the styles of older doom like Pentagram, Witchfinder General, etc. and added their own modern touch. Good for them. I do think the overall idea and sound they went for was fairly alright, their downfall was being too repetitious to the point itwould drag out what would have been a great idea on its own into a drawn out mess. There are Sunn O))) songs that can keep my attention better than some of Reverend Bizarre’s more drawn out material. One thing I will end this with and praise them for as well, is that their cover’s of Dunkelheit by Burzum and The Gate of Nanna by Beherit were great, they completely made it their own to the point that it could almost challenge the originals.
The inbox is closed for the time being until we can catch up with everything. Thank you for all of the submissions, we never thought it would be so popular with you. We’ll try to answer everything as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
