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.
Let the games begin!
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.
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.
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.
Hardcore, yes was originally punk influenced, however dowadays hardcore, deathcore, metalcore,ect is metal influenced. Trust me I know my music probably better than you. Yes some hardcore is still punk influenced but progressive hardcore and boston hardcore are more metal influenced than punk influenced. Deathcore is actually influenced by death metal, and metalcore is influenced by heavy metal, just saying. I knew you would turn my words on myself to make me look like an idiot.
No argument, no matter how valid, no matter how to the point it is, will make it through your thick, ignorant skull, simply because you just don’t get it, and you fail to comprehend. You’re just like the rest of the core kiddies, you fit that to a T. AND you unfollowed us. *gasp* Big. Fucking. Deal. Bu-bye. I hope you clicked that unfollow button with angst.
opinion on Meshuggah?
They basically created the genre and coined the term “Djent”. That itself is enough to write them off. We’re not into bands that constantly go “chugga, chugga, chugga” no matter what kind of time signatures they use.
But atheist use jazz time and other weird things I never hear in death metal how is that average?
Including jazz and other “weird things” doesn’t automatically make it “good”. I can play kazoo in a black metal band, that’s weird too, but it doesn’t mean it’s going to be good and hold up to the greats of the genre. Fast and technical isn’t always the answer to the equation of being great. Sometimes bands that use rather simple riffage are great, that keeps up with the saying of “less is more”. Different things work for different people.
Paradise lost? Like their first 4 albums. and what about Atheist?
It’s kind of hard to say about Paradise Lost, they were one of the big 3 of death/doom in England, along with Anathema and My Dying Bride, played a large part in its formation and influenced a lot of bands since then. The first 4 albums are pretty good releases, they were unique in their own right and seem to have held positive reviews throughout all these years. The one major disappointment about them is that they just completely collapsed after that and have struggled to return to form, they’ve showed a few glimmers of hope, but they just can’t seem to do it.
As for Atheist, they’re your typical death metal band, not good, not bad, average I would say. They never really stood out to me in being spectacular.
opinions on king diamond/mercyful fate?
The first couple of Mercyful Fate albums are classics for heavy metal in the 80’s, especially Melissa, after that they were not too special. Sorry, I’m not a fan at all of King Diamond’s solo albums, very disappointing for me.
