The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/17/03 08:31 PM

OK heavy metal fans, I know there are a few of you on this site...

Anyone buy the new Metallica album? Your thoughts?

I haven't gotten the nerve to buy the new album, because I think the title track being played on the radio is pretty bad.

I have three passions...fishing, fitness and music.

We've obviously covered fishing here. I never really bring up any fitness topics. But we have approached music here, so I wanted to get a discussion going on this.

Today is a sad day. I'm afraid one of my favorite bands of the metal genre has finally lost its appeal to me. I held on for a long time, though...I tried really hard to like the last albums (Load and re-Load) but the feel just wasn't the same has with the past albums.

R.I.P. Metallica.

While I've liked the recent changes made since the black album, this one flat out SUCKS...its currently sitting on my desk and will be SOLD to CD revolution very shortly. Waste of money.

I can't believe Bob Rock produced this crap.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 01:13 AM

I heard one radio guy say that this was an attempt to get back to their roots but I also have a hard time liking any of it I have heard.

I have to agree that I also think it sucks.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 12:28 PM

I had given up on Metallica when the Black album came out and made it apparent that fame and radio play became more important than the music. Enter Sandman is just as bad of a song as any of the newer tunes. You just can't beat the stuff from the eighties that would, as my friend would say, "crack the concrete".

Master of Puppets is still one the all-time greatest metal albums. I just feel that most mainstream music is pretty bad, and it is no place for bands that want to keep their following.

I give them credit for hanging around so long and bringing in a new fan base of little kids. But it does doesn't cut it for us who were raised on the first four albums.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 12:51 PM

i've heard the new song a few times (unfortunately) and only bits of other new songs...

1. hetfield just does not sound good... he does not have the edge or power to his voice that he once had... whether it is the mix (a better mix would help his sound a little) or his voice just sux now, that is what first bothers me... he is not steady on his pitches... he is forcing his voice to hit pitches that don't sound good for him anymore- it just doesn't sound good at all... and if the voice is bad- the entire music is tainted...

2. the lyrics are TERRIBLE "i'm madly in anger with you" :rolleyes: such a stupid line- and he says it like 20 times throughout the song... just pathetic...

3. the mix is horrible... Lars- fix your snare sound! - the snare drum sound makes or breaks a drummer's sound- and that annoying, overly-resonant, too loud, hollow snare is the loudest sound on the entire mix... and is there even a bass guitar in the music? it worked on master of puppets and "and justice..." only because of the exceptional guitar, voice, and drums sound- but this new music NEEDS bass- because everything else is so weak...

4. going back to the progressive metal was the approach- which is what we all wanted... and i like some of the faster parts and riffs (it is the ONLY highlight) ... but the same riffs go on forever in that song... and the riffs just don't hook you like old metallica used to... they are sub-par for what metallica has done in the past... maybe they really were using leftover "Dave mustaine" riffs and finally ran out...

5. (almost forgot) is Kirk even playing? haha- there is not one inkling of a lead sound on the new song - or even on the bits of other songs i have heard... i guess i can live without solos... but it seems the guitar sound is just 2 rythem guitars doubled up- playing the same riffs simultaneously!?!?!? haha... what a waste of a decent guitar player?? solos are kind of a dinosaur in metal now- but even that "lead" rythem (know what i mean?) is gone... always an important part of metallica's sound... gone... very sad... how do take away the best parts of the music and then expect to hold up against what they have done in the past? :rolleyes:

hate to say it- but metallica is past its peak- and has been declining for a long time... some bands seem to get better with every cd... i don't like godsmack- but there last cd really impressed me... stain'd seems to get better and better (i don't really like them a lot either...) sevendust- every cd they release just blows me away... tool peaked out at aenima- lateralus was not nearly as good... but they are still EXTREMELY good and i think they have the potential to top aenima - lets hope they don't slip like metallica did... system of a down gets better every cd... these bands are still approaching there peak- and are the current state of metal (like it or not) - much like metallica was in the late 80's... but i guess everyone has to decline at sometime...

my 2 cents... maybe a little more \:D

I try to look on the bright side,
Nevermore's new album comes out July 29th
(enemies of reality)
It's good to know musicianship isn't dead, just no longer in favor with the mass's
Posted by: RatherGoFishin

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 01:21 PM

First off I want to start by saying no one in the metal music industry....no one.....has done what metallica has. I have been a fan since kill em' all and like all of us with time, we change. Hetfield can't possibly sound like he did from Kill em' all to justice. As for giving up on them as a band, guys please. Look at all the jam bands that rocked throught the times...The Dead, Allman Bros, Stones. They ALL do not sound like they did "back in the day".
I will ALWAYS be a metal head and a huge metallica fan to the day the hang it up for good. The new album has some issues, no doubt. But I have been listening to it for 2 weeks now and there are some songs on there that are not 1/2 bad. The mix sux, and that snare is the most annoying thing in the world. But the album was the #1 selling album last week being on the shelf for 4 days.

As for these 1 hit wonder metal bands today (some of them are pretty good), none of them will ever come close to what metallica has done musically. Do really think sevendust, godsmack or system of a down will last for nearly 2
decades????

I have seen the set list of a few of the recent concerts and only 2 new songs were played. The rest of set was songs like Whiplash, Ride the lightning, Seek and destroy. Has metallica lost their luster with age, yes, no question. But they are still the godfathers of modern day metal and I doubt we will ever see the likes of another band like this for a loooong time.

Can't wait to see them in July!!!
My $.02 also. ;\)

ps. look to the sky just before u die......

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 01:41 PM

The hopes of me liking this album are bleak, but I will probably at least give it a chance.

As for bands hanging it up when it’s time, you’ve got to respect the Ramones, my favorite band of all time. They ended it right. Unfortunately, Joey Ramone is no longer alive to get the respect.

Slacktide, I have one of Nevermore’s albums (forget which one.) The music is good, but the lyrics were kind of lame – not necessarily satanic, but almost. I enjoyed the music of some of the extreme death metal bands, such as Deicide, but the lyrics are just too ridiculous.

RatherGoFishin, Metallica definitely still rocks live! I was really psyched to hear that Rob Trujillo, (from Suicidal Tendencies, another favorite band of mine) joined Metallica. When they hit the stage during MTV’s Icon special, I thought they blew every band away as soon as they starting playing “Hit the Lights.”

I’m sure they’ll be good on this tour, I just can’t deal with all the opening bands to wait for Metallica. I would love to seem them in a club like Toad’s one day. Some day, it will probably happen.
Posted by: RatherGoFishin

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 01:53 PM

If that day comes, I will be there. No matter what. I missed the Mtv icon.

As for waiting throught he other bands there's one solution for that.....beer. Lots of it. Linkin park is actually pretty good live. I saw them with Staind (they sucked) and LP was pretty tight. Suicidal was one of my favorites as well.
Never got to see the Ramones live. I was too young. (18) When they came to toads nine years ago.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 01:54 PM

Mitch, you must be confused about Nevermore, they're more of a political/current topics type of band, no satan crap in any of they're albums.
Try downloading a song & tell me if you think it's the same band, let me know.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 01:58 PM

Just saw Carlos Santana last night, still inspiring to hear him wail......

It's hard to stand the test of time. Most have their moments and usually it's a very short one. The reason Metallica sucks now is because they were so great then.

That's the way it goes, right music, right time, right generation... its all fleeting.

But their classic music will remain forever!! \:\)

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 02:10 PM

Ok, I can agree with most of you regarding the oldschool Jaymz, Lars, Jason, Kirt.rocked harded, BUT!!!....you need to keep in mind this band is older now (I don't soud the same today as I did 14 or 15 years ago!!). My thoughts on the new album: It is way better then Load and Reload.... they were (_I_) I think I listened to them like 3 times fully. The new album is a lot heavier then the last two, but still keep in mind they absolutely do not sound the same as they did years ago.....they never will (Plus the fact James is sober now :p . Well still in all It took me a a few times listening through the entire album to dig some of the songs..there are plenty of riffs in there that refelct the oldschool style. Bottomline is they were and are a great band..I don't think anyone will ever get close to what they played in years past (Bells, Fade to balck, Master.., Justice, Four horsemen, breadfan, but the fact they are still rocking...is plain BAD ASS!! Also, for all the people that really can't dig the new album (I still prefer the older stuff by far)....they give you a code on the CD that allows you to go to a Website and burn a bunch of old songs from various concerts. I will still always air guitar and air drum when I hear an old song on the radio.... \:D Sorry for the book, but Metallica the band, the boyz still rock in my mind. (I totally understand that opinions do vary) Ok, damn it.lets go get some fish!!

Christ is a weapon that chisels at our lives
Deconstruction

And on the eighth day God made the art of war

Trust me, I have no problem with extreme rock lyrics. I listened to bands like Deicide and Obituary that made Slayer seem like a lounge act. And I’m not saying the guys in Nevermore believe in the lyrics I quoted, or that type of theme runs throughout their music. Like certain movies, I think some of these bands are entertainment and you have to take the lyrics with a grain of salt. I would check out their new album if you recommend it.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 02:25 PM

I have only heard snippets of St Anger...and it sounded like a mishmosh of sounds. Like a garage band trying to play as loud as possible. I am not looking foward to hearing the new album. I thought Load was crap, but in a vacuum if you don;t compare Reload to thier other masterpieces i think it is pretty good.

I just wish metallica would be more like megadeth. Thier sound evolved in the 90's, and the 1998 album "Cryptic Writings" is tenfold better than anything metallica was putting out at the time. Their sound evolved in the 90's unlike metallica which completely changed everything. They tried to change is up with the album "Risk" in 99 but it was not heavy enough for most fans. SO they brought back more of the old sound for 01's "The world needs a hero" i enjoy the album, but you can tell the creative juices were running thin.
BTW in 1992 they put out "Countdown to Extinction" one of my favorite albums ever. If you are a metal fan you owe it to yourself to get it.

Is there anyone else going to see Iron Maiden at the Meadows in July??? If so we should meet in the parking lot to do some tailgating.

Mitch: you should start a fitness post if that is what you are into. We all can share tips and workouts. I am always looking for new workouts.

one hit wonder metal bands? hmm- are those 3 really ? i know sevendust has 3 solid cd's with another in the works and system has 2 solid cd's- one "outtakes" cd that is really good- and i suspect they have more good music ahead... they may not be multiple decade contributors (of course that remains to be seen) but i wouldn't say their one hit wonders either... i'm not a big godsmack fan at all- but i think they are one of the more established metal bands right now... who else is there? not a big stain'd fan- but they are established now too... it would be easy for someone to say metal sux right now - but i think that would "date" you... there is some decent music being made right now - but a lot more crap than good stuff (isn't that always the case?)

i hear your argument though- can't deny the past- but can't use it as a measuring stick either- i would give you the same argument if we were talking about VH/DLR...

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 09:29 PM

Ok I just had to chime in on this. The new Metallica is fair, but after 20 years they are still rocking, can't be said for most metal bands.

Since we are on the topic of metal, what would you list as your top 10 metal cd's of all time. Mine would be, in no particular order.

Pantera-vulgar display of power
Metallica-master of puppets
Megadeth-Countdown to Extinction
Anthrax-attack of the killer B's
Guns N Roses-appetite for destruction
Metallice-ride the lightning
Rage against the machine-self-titled cd
Life of agony-ugly
Black sabbath-self-titled cd
Queensryche-operation mindcrime

I'm sure I left of some others that deserve to be on that list.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 09:38 PM

It's horrible.
Constant repetition of lyrics. Flat, muted music that sounds like they are all crowded around a single mic.
Kudos to Metallica. They finally found a way to keep folks from illegally distributing their music; by writing crap. Back to their roots indeed. Mayhap a little too far back. :rolleyes:

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/18/03 11:31 PM

LOL GMpartsguy, i agree.

The new album is plain and simply a let down. Im glad im a die hard Ozzy/Sabbath fan since boyhood!

Want a good laugh? Here:

"What saves St. Anger from being a victim of its own self-pity, and actually elevates it into the category of a pretty good metal record, is his voice. Producer Bob Rock has wisely taken the gloss off Metallica's sound, and Hetfield is the biggest beneficiary."

Taken from here: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1101030616-457360,00.html?CNN=yes

You might say, "no wonder" like i did after reading that. Its just too bad some think its ok that they could TRY and pull this over on the true fans in it for the enjoyment and not just to have another Metallica album!

The guy i work next to bought it, and ive had a chance to hear it a couple times. I just didnt work for me. I hate to bash em' really, but the truth hurts.
I also see a ctfisherman Iron Maiden party in the works. I saw them with Twisted Sister in Hartford wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the mid-80's (yikes, whered the time go ?). It was a great show, and was 2'nd only to military aircraft, the loudest fripping thing i have ever heard.

For some good laughs, read some of the 1,000+ reviews on Amazon.com.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/det...ustomer-reviews

Chaldo, some good albums in your list. I'll have to try to come up with mine. Surprised anyone else ever heard of Life of Agony! Good album.

Operation Mindcrime is a metal classic, but Q-ryche is another great band that finally s&*t the bed.
Posted by: Mark H

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 09:00 AM

Chaldo? It was hard to put Operation Mindcrime on that list, it's not really metal but it's just to good to leave off. I agree that they are all finished, it's to bad they had some great stuff. Nobody's heard of life of agony? That is a shame they were a great band. I used to work at a cd store, so I got to check out a lot of different bands. It was cool except sometimes I ended up using most of my paycheck on cds. I downloaded the new Metallica cd, after all the BS they did about Napster I refuse to give them anymore of my $$$. I'll burn you a copy if you want it.
Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 10:48 AM

Operation Mindcrime is one of the best metal albums ever. Q-ryche was definitely metal. Now, I don’t know what to call them.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 11:17 AM

I have a hard time saying "Metal" and G n R in the same voice. Good album, but metal??? I would put G n R in the same category with AC/DC who is still rockin!!

What about South of Heaven?? Thought it was a pretty good album. Sacred Riech was a decent metal band as well.
Posted by: slacktide

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 11:51 AM

Life of Agony RULED!!
Q.R.= operation mindcrime was a great album
"older" Metallica = changed the face of Music
Slayer,Pantera, the list goes on & on.
They ALL owe something to Black Sabbath, and will readily admit it. All this great music, but now, what is going to fill the void? These bands were great, great musicianship, great song writing.
It just seems those days are long gone in favor of music that should be in a beer commercial.

have you guys heard new queensryche already? i didn't hear anything from the new cd yet- but i was hoping that getting chris degarmo back meant going back to their metal sound...

this is a good thread-

top ten metal albums? - that is tough- metal is just one of my fav types of music- so my list would be a little more broad... but i definitely think queensryche belongs on there- although i like the live-crime cd better - my favorite live cd... and of course i would have to add fair warning by VH- although they aren't really "metal"... definitely "master of puppets" and "vulgur display" - "countdown" is not my fav megadeth (although its good!) i would pick something earlier- "rust in peace" maybe... maiden-"number of the beast" would have to be there- my list would be top ten hard rock/metal- because i would have to include ACDC and VH... oh- and would definitely leave rage on there! never liked guns n roses though...

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 01:07 PM

Yeah I agree that GNR really isn't metal, I had trouble putting that on the list. AC/DC is defiantly still rocking, I have seen them live many times over the years, always a great show. If I had to add a few more, lets not forget...
Faith no more, the real thing
Blizzard of ozz
Iron maiden Piece of Mind
SOD Speak English or Die

I'm sure I could come up with a top 10 list of "not quite" metal bands as well. \:\)

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 01:25 PM

Hey Mitch, I like to think fitness (weight lifting) and metal go hand in hand. Favorite cd to bench to is Vulgar Display of Power. Start a set just before F-ing Hostile comes on.

Although not a huge fan, a little bit of Limp Bizkit is pretty good to lift to as well.
Posted by: Spicoli

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 01:48 PM

I don't know how you guys can say that GNR isn't metal. I know what you mean about putting them in the same category as AC/DC, because it's not quite as heavy as some of the other ones listed. I'd definitely put my favorite band from the 80s in there, too... Motley Crue. Anyway, since this is about heavy metal, I'll say that you must include Ministry (Psalm 69 and The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste). They absolutely kick ass!
Posted by: RatherGoFishin

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 01:59 PM

I like early Crue. But GNR I think is "heavier" Rock n Roll?

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 02:09 PM

Coming up with a “metal top 10” is a hard task. Everyone’s list will be different, and some influential bands will always be left out. Here’s mine:

1. Black Sabbath – Paranoid
2. Metallica – Master of Puppets
3. AC/DC – Back in Black
4. Judas Priest – British Steel
5. Queensryche – Operation Mindcrime
6. Iron Maiden – Piece of Mind
7. Slayer – Reign in Blood
8. Guns N Roses – Appetite for Destruction
9 Alice in Chains – Dirt
10 Megadeth – Rust in Peace


There’s many other influential bands that come to mind – Anthrax, Pantera, Testament, Motorhead, Dokken, Motely Crue, Exodus, Sepultura, Suicidal Tendencies, Obituary, Deicide, Mercyful Fate, etc., etc., etc. The list goes on. And even thought they’re not metal, I’d have to mention Van Halen and Ramones on my list.
Posted by: Spicoli

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 02:21 PM

Great call with Alice in Chains! They're one of my all-time favorite bands. I'd also give honorable mention to Prodigy for "Fat of the Land."
Posted by: Mark H

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 04:07 PM

Ahh Ministry great stuff, I only left them off because I consider them more industrial than metal. Killing joke, NIN, Front 242, Ministry, Gravity Kills, KMFDM, Front Line Assembly, Fear factory....... That would require a new list. \:\)
Posted by: Spicoli

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 05:03 PM

I was going to mention a few of those but figured most people wouldn't know them. You and I like the same kind of music. Are you into techno, house, or trance?
Posted by: AjaxWarrior

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 06:44 PM

AHHH!! Now we're on a subject I truly love!!

First off, there is definitely a difference between METAL and HARD ROCK. Metallica is metal. G&R is NOT.. it's hard rock. There's different catagories of metal also, but that's a whole topic in itself!
I go way back in the metal days. Me and Timber24 have seen Metallica back in the late 80's with OZZY at the New Haven coliseum (long live Cliff Burton!), as well as others like MANOWAR and TESTAMENT at Lamour's in Brooklyn, DARK ANGEL at CBGB's, and even MEGADETH at the "Keg house" bar in New Haven on their first album tour (which I got thrown out of and saw the show through the window.. BAD DRUNKEN METALHEAD!!)
Even today's metal makes that stuff sound, like Mitch implies, SOFT. Some of my favorites now are MALEVOLENT CREATION, MONSTROSITY, CRADLE OF FILTH, and if you can find this, SOLSTICE(USA). They truly "CRACK THE CONCRETE".

Anyway, my top 10 switches every day, but here's some in no particular order:

1: Solstice (USA) self-titled
2: Celtic Frost "Morbid Tales"
3: Metallica "Kill 'em all"
4: Testament "First strike STILL deadly"**
5: Sacred Reich "Ignorance"
6: S.O.D. "Speak English or Die"
7: Morbid Angel "Domination"
8: Anthrax "Spreading the Disease"
9: Cradle Of Filth "Damnation and a day"
10: Ahh, who the hell knows what else..

** This Testament cd is a comp of their first 2 albums, re-recorded by them with today's technology. If you are die-hard fans of theirs from back in the day, this is a MUST to crank in your automobile!!

And finally I will add: ANYONE WANNA JAM?? HEHE!

Posted by: Mark H

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 08:31 PM

Spicoli, I will listen to anything other than rap or country. My tastes are all over the place depending on my mood. I could never do a list of top 10 cds of all time, my head would explode first. :p I'm sure I could list off many metal bands that I like, that most people have never even given a listen to. Corporate rock just sucks, lots of great bands out there that never even get a chance.
Posted by: Drewfus

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/19/03 10:37 PM

Does anyone hear listen to Iced Earth??? THey are one of my favorite metal bands. THey have a slew of albums dating from the early 90's. The ones from the mid 90's to the present are much better due to their singer who in my opinion may have the best voice in metal history. For some reason i only own one of thier albums, "Horrow Show" I highly reccomend it. i do have many songs on my computer though. The live album "Alive in Athens" is outstanding also. Recently they put out a cover album covering classic metal songs by sabbath, maiden, ac dc etc. Thier cover of "Hallowed By thy Name" is now my favorite cover of all time. I can try to send songs to anyone who is interested.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/20/03 12:44 AM

Have to add to the lists Mitch and Ajaxwarrior have stated. Great bands ands CD's mentioned there, but these are some of my choices for timeless ripp'n CD's:

Slayer - "Reign in Blood"
Sacrifice - "Forward to Termination"
Forbidden - "Forbidden Evil"
Suicidal Tendencies - self titled
Death Angel - "Act III"
Dark Angel - "Darkness Decends"
Metallica - "Master of Puppets"
Kreator - "Kill for Pleasure"
Megadeth - "Peace Sells But Who's Buying"
Armored Saint - "Delerious Nomad"
Manowar - "Hail to England"

Countless other great bands of the true metal era like Destruction, Posessed, Ludichrist, Nuclear Assault, OverKill, Exodus, Sacred Reich, Pantera, Celtic Frost, Onslaught, Cryptic Slaughter, Anthrax, Death, and Bad Brains.

Aaaaah - those were the days! I went through many sets of car speakers during my college years.

The current metal doesn't seem to have the in your face intensity like when the above bands reigned. The modern punk bands are what I think to be the best stuff you can find in CD stores now.
Mitch, you must have a punk side if the Ramones are your top band. Got some great CDs you may like from NOFX, No Use For a Name, Lagwagon, Strung Out, Rise Against, Good Riddance, Avail.

Gotta love the power of MUSIC to keep yourself sane!

Me too Zach. They’re one of my favorite bands. I loved Promised Land, but after that, their music was unlistenable to me!

Their new album is coming out 7/22.

There’s some sound clips available on their site:

Ajax…so what are your thoughts on the new Metallica?

Slacktide, how about a “ctfisherman metal-fest” outing? Zach, will you be wearing your Stryper outfit? (FYI…see this link…I know it’s what you’ve been waiting for! The Stryper reunion Tour! http://www.knac.com/article.asp?ArticleID=2139

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/20/03 03:23 PM

If there is a "METAL" outing, we should all wear an old concert tee-shirt to represent some of the heaviest bands. You all know, the rag like cloth that is three sizes too small these days!

I found my 1984 Iron Maiden Powerslave tour shirt the other day and think I will have to pass it on to one of my sons. Their teacher will love the picture of "Eddie" with the lightning bolts through his head - classic.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/21/03 02:05 AM

Well Mitch, I have only heard the song "St. Anger", and I just gotta say it truly SUCKS ASS. I wrote Metallica off after "And Justice For All" came out. That was the last "acceptable" Metallica album as far as I'm concerned. Here's the deal with them: They are a band that KNOWS they should quit, but unfortunately doesn't have the heart to. So the well runs dry, and the true fans like us, there from the beginning, suffer for it.. **R.I.P. Metallica**

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 07/15/03 05:35 PM

I haven't followed Metallica for years. I remember being a rabid fan in the eighties though. Wore out multiple cassette copies of "Ride the Lightning" and "Master of Puppets". They seriously rocked back then.

But, something happened on the way to the bank, and these guys got money hungry. The whole issue with Lars and Napster left most people just hating Metallica. Most artists still don't realize that song-swapping is good for them, as it introduces their music to new fans. But all Lars was worried about was more money in his wallet. Well, his problem isn't with Napster... its with his greedy, corporate, record label that take the lion's share of the profits. He should concentrate on bashing them in the future.

Now James has "found God" and gone through rehab. Who gives a crap? Kirk is non-existant on this album (outside of standard chops), and Lars drums sound horrible. I see some folks putting together a metal top-ten. That's real hard to do.. but; here are some of my favorites:

10. Motorhead: Orgasmatron
9. Megadeth: Peace Sells, but Who's Buying?
8. Pantera: The Great Southern Trend Kill
7. Rush: Anything that crunches on any of their albums between "Rush" and "Moving Pictures".
6. Anthrax: Pretty much any of the earlier stuff.
5. Yngwie Malsteem's Rising Force: Marching Out (sure the lyrics and singing suck, but; Yngwie is incredible).
4. Zakk Wylde: Sonic Brew.
3. Ozzy Osbourne: Tribute: Randy Rhoads (I still miss Randy).
2. Iced Earth: Night of the Stormrider
1. Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin II. The godfathers... you have to give respect.

That's all for now..

Take care,

I don't know about the new Metallica album - they have been going downhill ever since they ran out of albumn names and used Re-load after load. Sounds like a load of bunk!

Now, if you want Metal, and I mean real, f*cking metal, then you should get XM Radio!!! They have a station that plays all current hardcore, death metal, speedmetal; I mean the kind of music that only metal heads listen, too.

My favorites are:
Madball, SOD, Suicidal Tendancies, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Saxon (although they have become lame since the 70s) Six Feet Under, Type O Negative, Pantera, Iced Earth, Early Metalica, Slayer, Venom, Bolt Thrower, Broken Hope, Exodus, Judas Priest (with Halford - non-Halford music blows), Overkill, Hatebreed, Nothingface, Sameal, Accept, Bruce Dickinson, Exodus, Fear Factory, Obituary, Skarhead, Benediction, and Death.

Just remember one thing:

I saw them at Gillette Stadium. They only played 2 new songs off their new album. Other than that, and "Nothing Else Matters (sux)", the show was good. They opened with Battery, Master and followed it up with Harvester of Sorrow. It was mainly old stuff.

I just found this thread. Wish I was in it from the beginning. Lots of good taste in metal. Nothingface, Filth, and Scrape do it for me recently. Surprising though, all these posts and no Korn. Now there's some guys who stopped the booze and drugs and still crank it out.

Didn't hear about anyones trip to Iron Maiden. Although I would have timed my arrival for after Dio and left before Maiden. So I should be asking, how was Motorhead?

Has anyone noticed how much fish like Megadeath?

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/05/03 10:06 PM

KP----
I arrived at my seats at about 7:40 and the roadies were already taking down the motorhead stuff. They couldn;t have played more than a half hour. Maiden was awesome, it was my first time hearing Dio and it was alright.

Fish love the megadeth, for some reason last year i listened to Rust In Peace pretty much every ride home from candlewood.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/19/03 04:14 PM

Since this thread is somehow still alive, I figured I'd chime in once again. I, like Mitch, have listened to the whole new Metallica CD (BURNED COPY of course).
The CD sounds NOTHING like Metallica, as we all know. Therefore, it sucks. NOW.. If this was put out as, say, James Hetfield's NEW BAND'S CD, it would be way more acceptable! It DOES sound a lot like stuff you hear on the radio these days..
Bottom line, because it bears the "Metallica" title, it needs to be "frisbee'd" against the nearest brick wall. Thank you!

I have been listening to "Hair Nation" and "Buzzsaw" on Sirius, brings me back to the music I grew up with and got me listening to it again! It still sounds awesome and gets me cranked up!

Although besides Dave Mustaine, there are 3 other new guys. So i am regarding it as a dave mustaine solo album!!!!

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 03/09/05 06:48 PM

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with bands prospering from their music ... even years later in a commercial. Why make music if you don’t want people to hear it?

Plus, young people can find out about classic bands when the music continues to be played.

To me, "selling out" is more about producing crap music, like Metallica has done – just so they can say they’ve "changed" or "evolved." I don’t care what they call it, I call it garbage!

It really backfired for Metallica. The poor album sales show that their fans didn’t support their change, so they better get back to the recording studio!

These guy's really need to go back on Booze and other mind altering substances to get their music back on track. But yet Aerosmith is huge. I don't get it?

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 03/09/05 07:11 PM

The problem with music today is not the bands out there it's the music companys with their cookie cutter mentality. Hey that band just sold a million copies. Let's sign any band that sounds just like them. So we can sell a million also.
It's a damm shame. Their are some awesome bands you and I will never hear unless you search underground for it. I feel bad for kid's today. They have no idea of what real talent is. Just the crap music companys and corporate radio want them to hear.

I just picked up the Skindred cd off of amazon- I am hoping it is decent because WCCC is really killing me with the 90's renaissance lately- I couldn't stand nirvana when I was in high school- and I hate them just as much now - I would prefer to never hear pearl jam, soundgarden, alice in chains or the stone temple pilots ever again either- there has GOT to be some decent new rock and metal out there somewhere!
Posted by: Chris

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 03/09/05 07:32 PM

Zach, Stone Temple Pilots were the real deal. It's just that like I said a post ago the music companys turned out a bunch of bands with the same sound as them. Which in turn dragged them down. All thru the 90's music died. I never thought it would recover and not sure it has?
Two bands I really like now are Green Day and 3 Door's Down. The rest suck. Just cookie cutter crap. Also I don't understand this B.S about Nirvana. They sucked in my mind now and then.
But yet you hear how he was a ledgend.
B.S. If he were still alive he would have been washed up with the Boy Band B.S years ago. Never to be heard from again.

You can check them out here and sample the sound about halfway down the page. Listen to "act of contrition" to get a good head banging rip.

Skindred albumn is really good, al be it very different! Don't get it expecting to have it chock full O' Pit riffs, cause it's not.
Check into Otep for some "local boys" to support, The Bass player (Jay, he's a meathead,cool guy) is right from Southington. If you REALLY have an urge to melt your eardrums, pick up any album from Nile.

Arlow: Shadows fall is pretty good. I've been listening to All That Remains recently. The album i have is "this darkened heart" I like them a lot, although its a little too much screaming at times.

Spineshank is another band that I have been listening to as of late. Their ablum "Self Destructive Pattern" is amazing.

I saw Killswitch Engage last fall, and they are one of the more popular metalcore bands.

Anyone else like In Flames???

Shadows Fall was a Local Band from Mass , my old band opened for them at the Fat Cat in Springfield about 3 years ago. Glad to see they got so big.

Its funny because the band I was in , in like 95' opened for Hatebreed at the old Barbacan in New Haven , back when they were a local band. We considered Jamie Jasta a close personal friend.

Shadows Fall is on Tour with Slipknot and lamb of God. That would be a good show.

I've been listening to the new Judas Priest album, Angel of Retribution, for a few days straight. It's just an average metal album.

The bonus DVD that comes with it makes up for the album. It includes interviews, and live concert footage from last summer with classic Priest songs: Breaking the Law, Metal Gods, A Touch of Evil, Hell Bent for Leather, The Hellion/Electric Eye, Diamonds & Rust, and Living After Midnight. The Electric Eye performance is awesome!

That Judas Priest single is the biggest ripoff of Janes Addiction's "Mountain Song" I've ever heard. The riff is identicle. I'm not sure how they got away with it , but its pretty weak. It seems like these bands that try and make comebacks just can't write anymore , look at Motley Crew they had some Bubblegum Pop band (Simple Plan) write their latest single. Maybe thats what goes first with old age.

I saw slayer last november at the roseland ballroom. My friend and I were making an effort to stay away from the violence. At one point I turned around and saw one guy just pounding on some dude who was laying on the floor. He was punching him pretty good and I debated whether i should step in. (I was easily at least 6 inches taller and 100 pounds heavier than both these guys)

The guy was getting pummeled real good and my friend yelled to me to break it up. I merely stuck my arm in front of the aggressor's face and he backed off. Probably saw the size of me and didn't want to mess!!!

Broken nose and bruised ribs, Pantera with biohazard in springfield. Dont remember the year though.It was a general admission show and i (somehow) made it to the front row. The rib injury was from being pressed up against the gate. And the broken nose was courtesy of a crowd surfers foot. Great show though \:D

Seeing them twice is hardcore! You're definitely metal! I could see how you would go twice. They were that darn good! What a band. Touring and playing all-out is hard work. They don't lame out and "just get it done." They're not fake. It's clear they truly are the metal gods.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/13/05 08:43 PM

Right your are and I am still plenty deaf today to prove they are among the elite of elite. :p
I wish I knew Queensryche's newer and more obscure material, I only really know their stuff from "Mind Crime" and they only did one number from that which disapointed me a bit but all in all is was a great couple of nights!

Hello,
I saw the Judas Priest show in Manchester New Hampshire this past weekend and DAMN! One hell of a show. We stayed in the same hotel as 4/5s of Priest and I personally thanked KK Downing for one hell of a show in the lobby the next morning.

I have always been a somewhat casual Priest fan and frankly was looking forward to Queensryche more but seeing two guys who can belt out vocals like that was incredible. I know some echo and reverb was used but I swear Halford was pulling some of those notes so deep they were coming straight from his pinky toe. My wife who LOVES Priest was also impressed with Tate's vocals.

She may not agree with me that Operation Mind Crime is one of the best albums of our generation but she was impressed. It was definately the best money spent on a concert in years!

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/16/05 12:09 AM

My wife and I just saw Queensryche and Judas Priest sunday night!!!!

Queensrych opened with a 8 song set that just left us wanting more. This was the first time I have ever seen either of these bands live and all I can say is wow.

Geoff Tate's voice was amazing. They were pushing a new album so most of what we hear was unfamiliar. They only played two big hits closing their set with Empire and Take hold the flame (awesome). I really wanted to hear a lot more.

Priest made up for it though with an amazing 2 and a half hour set.

Halford is back with the band and still has it even as old as he is!!!!!!!!!! Wow that man can sing!!!!!!! Priest was amazing and played many classics and played them all well!!!! An affort at reconstructing the song list is as follows.
Beyond the realm of death, Pain killer, Eat me alive, Victim of changes, Exciter, Diamonds in rust, Dissadent agressor, Delivering the goods, The ripper, Hell bent for leather, Breakin the law, Metal gods, Living after midnight, Grinder, Heading out to the highway, Desert plains, Electric eye (opener), You've got another thing comin, Turbo Lover, along with three off of the new album, Judas rising, Revolution and Hellrider

I guessed the pre-sale password (ANGEL) and it worked. I did this at 10:05 and got row P (15?). Saw them at Mohegan twice in the past year. Great shows. I just wish they'd mix up the set list more and play some rare songs. Enough of Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight.

I had seats, the lawn was a muddy mess which the people on the lawn shared with us by pelting us with muddy clods of lawn. Great concert! Going to motley crew on saturday.

Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/24/05 08:30 PM

Apparently Ozzy's business manager (his foul-mouthed wife), didn't like some of the things Dickinson had been saying about the whole Ozzfest Tour and someone in their camp organized the "attacks." Picked some info. up here:
http://www.ozzyhead.com/8-21-05a.htm

Including this great quote from Dickinson:

Bruce declared 'You'll never hear MAIDEN on U.S. radio, MTV and certainly never see them in a reality show,' he says they will play 60 minutes, not 55.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/24/05 08:43 PM

Why does it not surprise me that Sharon Osbourne
would do something so low and idiotic?
She may be a great manager and business person??? But she is a Bi*#ch. I can't stand her talk show or watching her un/reality show.
Being that all she does is sell OZZY.
Which I think sells itself? I wonder if she's even a good manager. I would think selling OZZY would be like selling dollar bills for a nickle each.

Posted by: Channel Matt

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/26/05 11:28 AM

My first concert was Iron Maiden and Judas Priest at the Meadowlandds in NJ in 1981 or 1982. Halford rode a 1/2 ton Harley onto stage during that show. When Priest did Green Manalishi the hair on the back of my neck stood up.

I've also seen Motorhead (used to be the loudest band on earth), Krokus and several other psuedo-metal bands like Blackfoot, John Butcher Axis and others I cant think of now.

The biggest surprise I got was seeing Jeff Beck live....dude plays very loud and heavy in concert.

Dave is alive and well and still playing. Megadeth is actually still out on tour (called GIGANTOUR). Their last couple of albums have been phenomenal. He was able to rehab his hand, fortunately, and put together a new crew. It's up in the air whether he will continue with teh Megadeth name or not. Either way, he's still pumping out some of the most incredible music ever.

Anyone else at the Judas Priest / Anthrax show last night in Bridgeport? As usual, the metal gods did not disappoint! It was also great to hear Anthrax play some of their classics.

I'd say the Mohegan Sun show in the summer was better. The crowd/energy levels were higher, since it was a full house. The Bridgeport arena had plenty of unsold seats. It was still a great show, though. I had awesome floor seats with three friends. I got right up to the stage for the last few songs. I took a few pics with my Don. P-style camera phone. The quality stinks, but here are two…





Wish I had a digital camera. I could have gotten some awesome pics.

Until the next show...

I thought the last sytem of a down cd, Mezmerize was brilliant. Completely different than any of the other crap out there. I;m surprized these guys are as big as they are due to the uniqueness of their sound. You didn't buy it because of its reviews??? :rolleyes: If i were to buy music based on reviews, my cd case would probably be filled with kelly clarkson and that 50 cent person.

Although this may not be Heavy Metal, there is an awesome show coming to Mohegan Sun on March 29th.

Nickelback, Chevelle, and Trapt. All great bands.

Tickets go on sale this Saturday. I believe they are $41.50. A great place to see a show as well.

They are currently working on Staind and Korn.

I recently had the pleasure of seeing Aaron Lewis of Staind do an Acoustic show at the small Cabaret Theater inside the Casino. He has been there every year the past few years, so if you get the chance to go, it is money well spent. Probably one of the best things I have seen. He is so talented.

If you like old school thrash metal. Check out the latest from Kreator.

Forget the experimental albums they put out in the 90s, this is a return to what they do best -- pure, true, thrash metal.

From Amazon:
 Quote:
As a highly respected household name in the metal community for over 20 years, the release of a new Kreator album is a true event. Having been on the leading edge of the thrash metal revolution, these German legends have amassed a body of work that has become mandatory listening for any discerning metal fan. The new album, Enemy Of God, contains every bit of the vicious edge, acidic lyric, and undeniably strong songwriting skills that have earned them endless praise from around the world. As a new generation of metal bands continue their rise in America (Lamb Of God, Shadows Fall, etc.) the enduring influence of Kreator and their peers has never been more astoundingly clear. The leaders have returned!

Lots of good music out these couple months. I'm a bit partial to the new Korn disc.

Also hear Metallica will have an early 2007 release. Supposedly it's going to be more like why we listened to Metallica in the first place.

As for Metallica....I remember buying "and justice for all in 3rd grade and bringing it to school (Catholic School) I got in trouble because the teacher saw the cassette and read the lyrics off the insert......its still one of my favorites

That new Godsmack ain't half bad. Neither are the chicks in the video.

What I really want to know is if Queensryche: Operation Mindcrime II is any good, or if it's going to piss me off and make me want to throw it out the window. I'm waiting on a review from a bud by end of the week. Anyone else have a review?

Tman - they're pretty good. I like it, and I'm not too into the mumble metal. Very talented group.

GM - I heard that about Metalica too. I hope they go back to the old stuff, St. anger sux.

Tool has a new one out to or soon. Lots of good stuff coming out.

Anyone know of a good local band playing this weekend? I used to go see SLAM but they split up. They were good.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 04/27/06 03:37 AM

Word is OM3 is supposed to follow suit of the original. Can't say for myself, have yet to hear it.
As for this weekend, one of my students (great guy) is in a really good Alice in Chains cover band called facelift.
They usually play NY but are in Naugy this weekend. (Cooks cafe)
WORTH CHECKING OUT if you like Alice in Chains.

Thanks Slack - Godsmack got the name from Chains, of course I do.

Just found out Jeff Pitchell is playing Black Eyed Sally's Friday. Think I'll be going to that one and see how I tired I am for Saturday. Branford's a ride at night and after having a few.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 05/01/06 03:12 AM

lancraft, sure, I'll take you up on that CD for Friday. Thank you.

Their best ever? That's saying a lot considering they have some great, older albums, including The Warning and Operation Mindcrime 1. Hope you're right. The last two albums were pretty bad.

Here's a review a buddy emailed me the other day.

 Quote:
I have now listened to the Ryche CD 3 times. Below is my review. I still
think it requires another listen or 2.

Tates vocals are strong. The guitar work is good, but definitely doesn't
have the Degarmo sound to it. Something is missing. Rockenfield and
Jackson sound great. Some of the mixes and temp changes are a little odd.
The album has some strong songs and some mediocre songs. Definitely a much
better piece of work when compared to the last 3 or 4 albums they have put
out. If you compare it to Mindcrime 1, there is no comparison. This album
doesn't even come close to the original. When you listen to MC 1, you felt
the story in the music. I don't get that same feel with this one. All in
all its not bad, and is worth purchasing. I would give it a 7 or a 7.5 out
of 10.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 05/03/06 03:56 PM

New Red Hot Chili Peppers comes out on Tuesday. I've downloaded the single. It's pretty good. Hopefully it's a great album. The last one was.

Lancraft - If you love DT, then Im sure you've heard of their off-beat project group dealie, Liquid Tension Experiment. They rock.

I mainly listen to hardcore nowadays, but still listen to some metal. Unless Metal goes back to the style of Metallica's And Justice For All...., and Ride the Lightning I really don't like most of it. A good German metal band is In Flames. Other bands I recomend you guys checking out are Atreyu (I LOVE these guys), As I lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, The Bled, Funeral For a Friend, and some others I can't think of right now.

If you're a fan of progressive metal, then Kamelot is a MUST. Get their newer album The Black Halo, I didn't take it out of my truck for 3 months.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 05/07/06 05:34 PM

Facelift was awesome!
They NAILED all of the harmonies,the guitars,drums & bass were "in the pocket" the new sound guy down there really was on top of his game, The singer's voice couldn't have been more dead on! Great show.
I've seen Sanctuary a few times, I'm not a huge Iron maiden fan but I do think they do a great job of covering them.

With the stadium in East Hartford now, i can't believe they still use the Meadows.

Or maybe a couple of those Dave Mathews 'Rocks, Glass, and Rubber Bullets' tours made them iffy.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 07/30/06 05:04 PM

Koplik owns (or at least is invested in) the Meadows and not the Stadium. It's all about money, that's why there's not too many shows at the Civic center too.

Completely agree. It's a 'safe' and predictable sound. That's how every FM radio metal band sounds now. It's cool to write songs about being vindictive about your failed relationships, mope about getting hurt, and have the chip-on-the-shoulder image.

Where's the beef? Where's the legions of 1980s Metallica fans chanting "FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS"?????? It's out there, just don't watch MTV or listen to 106.9.

Even what was an arena for somewhat lesser unknown bands to get out there is now totally commercialized. Try watching MTV2s headbangers ball or The Rock Countdown. Every 20 second commerical in between is other record companies pushing their new metal bands.

Went to ozzfest last sunday, they were spraying the crowd on the 2nd stage with a garden hose it was so hot! Atreau was awesome as was black label society. Disturbed was awesome with some really good thoughts in between sets, it was good to see some local talent on the main stage with hatebreed who totally rocked and it was just an awesome day. Got there at 9:45am and left when system of a down was finnished at 10:45pm.
awesome time, crowd was good, only saw 2 fights almost breakout before other people jumped in between and broke things up. the crowd did a good job of watching out for each other.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/04/06 12:56 PM

Ltoolmanb, that's because of Sharon Osbourne and BLS screwing with Maiden. That's why people hate them both. At the last show in CA. she had people in her entourage throw eggs at Bruce Dickinson, mind you every band in Ozzfest had to sign an egreement not to throw anything into the audiance, including drum sticks or picks, and she had the sound equipment turned on and off and had some idiot keep saying Ozzy over Bruce while he was singing.
Posted by: shellback

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/04/06 12:59 PM

Sharon had her idiot entourage and BLS screw with Maiden during thier set. She had them playing with the sound equipment and throw things at them during different shows including Hartford. The last show in CA. was the worst. Where's Ozzy now? Maiden carried Ozzfest 05 when Ozzy had trouble with his voice. Up the Irons
Posted by: Ltoolmanb

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/04/06 05:04 PM

Ozzy sounded great at ozzfest last year, sang with black sabbath and never missed a beat. He seemed more lucid on stage than he was on his tv show.
If Ozzy's smart he's home counting his money while other people are touring for him. I don't like his handler Sharon much but I have a lot of respect for ozzy. He has passed the test of time.
I know that Sharon was screwing with maiden last year and can't figure it out, seems like it lost her money.
as far as black label society I didn't see too many people hating them on the 2nd stage this year. Maiden didn't carry ozzfest last year, it was a great show that was added to by maiden but without them it still would've been a great show.

Ahh! The good old day's. I remember hoping on the Blue dot(Train) in Meriden. Going up to Hartford to see to many concerts to remember,one of the best was Deep Purple.
Concert ticket$15
Concert shirt$10
Buzzables $10

Getting your ear's blown out and walking around the whole next day with your ear's ringing. Priceless. It's kind of funny when you hear stories from old people how exsensive everything is today compared to when they where kid's.

Lynch, I have to remember to keep an eye on the Mohegan schedule more often. They have some good groups every year. Priest was great there last year. Enjoy Godsmack.

JLMOS, enjoy the Chili Peppers. Their last 3 albums have been some of the best I've bought in years. Their last tour was great and I'm sure this one will be, too. Plenty of great songs to play.

GM: Didn't Twisted Sister open for them on the Powerslave tour? I know Yngwie opened for the Somewhere in Time tour...that was a great show.

Anybody going to see Queensryche in Nov? I got good seats for that. They'll be performing Mindcrime I & II in their entirety with some sort of interactive stage show...sounds cool.

I just picked up the new album.(Do they still refer to it as an album?)Anyway,have only listened to two tracks so far. Sounds good But nothing to get excited about as of yet.
Maybe the best cuts are deeper in?
Does anyone know who the opening act is for them this time around?
Last year it was DIO. I think his time is almost up. Sounded like he was having a hard time hitting those very high notes. Still sounded good ,but you could tell he's not where he once was., but for a man his age who's to complain.

I had to listen to the Maiden album a couple of times to appreciate it...there are some good songs in there. I think they are touring with some new no-name band, nobody I knew.

Love Sabbath (w/Ozzy, Dio, etc) and solo Ozzy. He's reaching the end of the road too. Seeing him w/Sabbath on their first Reunion tour a few years back was cool but then they were doing the same show every year and no new album. His last solo album was kinda lame too...brought in songwriters... :rolleyes:

I thought that Steve Vai was going to do some guitar work for Dweezil on this tour ? That alone is worth the price of admission (for me anyway).

Steve has plenty of credits on FZ albums for "stunt guitar" and "impossible guitar parts". And lots of work after FZ.

Any reviews on the previous shows ?? I'm guessing that it's probably going to be pretty good. FZ was another band that played at the Civic Center that i kick myself in the azz for missing. Oh well...

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/05/06 12:54 PM

The Maiden show last night was a huge disappointment. They came out and played their entire new album (10 songs), and then threw in only a few older songs to close the show. They left out so many songs people came to hear. Maiden sounded good last night, but their set list was a bunch crap. The recent Judas Priest tour was a much better concert. They blew Maiden away on all fronts -- set list, stage show and energy level.

Nice to hang out with CTF'ers Zach, Chris and friends before the show.

yeah- the most enjoyable part of the concert last night was the pre-game "show" in the parking lot \:D hehe - glad to see you were able to get home last night, Mitch! haha

I was dissappointed with the show too- a few new songs- fine. but the whole album? and then play like 4 of their classics? they did sound fine and all, but give your fans what they paid a lot of money to hear
Posted by: Chris

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/05/06 01:36 PM

I was happy they played their entire new album, but not at the exspense of leaving out all their major hit's. Short show also. I think it ended at 10:00 or so. As I walked through the crowd on the way out. Every conversation you picked pieces up on was about not playing the majors.
A lot of disapointment out there. Not a good sign,if they are hoping to return again. I can't help but wonder if something went on backstage with the promoters or the house.At the end when they made their closing,he had said maybe we will see you again, maybe in New York?
Makes me wonder if the show got cut short and they are never going to return to Hartford???
Regardless of all that, last night brought me back to the 80's. Damm! I had a great time.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/05/06 01:56 PM

I don't know if any of you saw Maiden on their 2000 'return' tour but they did the same thing then. Played the entire new album (which wasn't even as good as this one) and only sprinkled in some old stuff although I think they played like 2 hours. Also, Rob Halford and Queensryche opened so all in all, it was a killer show. Bruce kept sayin stuff like this wasn't a reunion or retirement tour and that's why they're playing the entire new album. Ok, that's all well and fine but not when the songs aren't better than what they could be playing. Besides, they never did that back in the day either. Bands usually only play 3 or 4 songs off a new record especially if they have a huge catalogue unless it's a concept album. Sounds like I didn't miss anything special...hope Queensryche is better next month...

How can anyone bitch about Maiden last night? They played thier new stuff not like all the other bands who are living on thier old stuff. If you've ever seen KISS in concert once you've seen them a million times. Most older bands can only play thier old stuff because thier living in the past while maiden is chugging along creating new music. How many times do we have to hear the Trooper or Number of the Beast? When have you heard Hallowed be thy Name in concert? The stage show was great, huge Eddie as a tank commander and then a British soldier. Maiden is god and all the rest just want to follow.

2nd row behind the pit and I caught Nicko McBrain's drum stick, nice

I was there, and it was the worst MAIDEN concert I've ever seen! The whole album start to finish and only 4 old songs? That cramming it down our throats. The album has not been out long enough for everyone to know all the songs well. And they could have thrown some older songs in between, so the many like myself who like older maiden wouldnt be so pissed off.

Mitch, Zach.
IRON FU@#ING MAIDEN!!
I wish I knew you were there last night. (I had 3 8$ beers, alone (very pitiful) as my son doesn't drink beer he is 15) I ALWAYS run into sombody I know, but not last night! It was my son's first show and it was really great for us. Best 40$ t-shirt I ever bought, cause the smile/look on Tom's f ace was, yes, priceless. Yes, it is a little dissapointing to not have them play 666, RUn for the Hills, etc. BUT it would've been worse if the new album sucked, and it does not.
Last night's vocals were blistering! I'm not so used to the crew cut, though. ANyway, I don't hold it against them for promoting the new album, but I did miss some old favorties for sure.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/05/06 09:33 PM

No old stuff ?!?!?

Christ, even those old strips of beef jerky called The Rolling Stones can pound out a better show these days.

Dunno if i buy that "promotion" thing either. If you're at the concert, it's safe to say you probably already have the cuts too.

OTOH, the new stuff is pretty good. It's still much better than not having them around, or worse, releasing their own version of St. Anger.

I have seen maiden a few times. The first was in support of their Brave New World album. Luckily I like that album as they played almost every song. The next time I saw them was in I think '03 right before Dance of the Dead came out. They only played one song off that album.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/30/06 02:16 AM

Just got home from Zappa plays Zappa at the Chevy
(Oakdale)theatre. I was a bit disapointed that they didn't play a single song from Joe's garage or for that matter any of his other greatest hit's.
They played a lot of obscure stuff I never heard of. I recognized three songs. But despite that it was a great show. From a musical stand point it was incredible. Not exactly sure how to explain it, but you would get caught up in the music and get lost in it. The sound carried you away to another place in your mind.
Throughout most of the show they had ten musicians on stage. 4 guitars 2 drummers
2 keyboardist/sax 1 percusionist 1 singer/sax.
They closed with each drummer doing a couple minute solo each and then came together for a dual on drums. Followed up by some incredible guitar work.
Even if you a marginal fan of Zappa or just someone that loves beautiful music, I highly recomend you check them out.

Even if they didn't play any A-sides Chris, i'm still jealous. Between laziness and spending too much $$$ on fishing i wasn't gonna go, as much as i would have liked to. Not many shows catch my eye these days.

I agree. Even without all the popular tunes, there's still a mess of talent worth checking out.

Just got back from the Queensryche show at the Oakdale. They put on a great show...played both Mindcrime albums in their entirety and acted out the story on stage. Then came back out and closed with Empire and Jet City Woman. The band was tight and Tate's vocals are still good. Can't hear shiz right now...haha.

New Study Says Smart Kids Prefer Hard Rock Music

By Newsferatu, Writer
Saturday, March 24, 2007 @ 5:51 AM
KNAC.com

Researchers say they've found a clear link between hard rock music and intelligence. The claim came after a study of the musical tastes of 1000 brainy youngsters found they preferred the likes of Ozzy Osbourne to Mozart.

The survey was carried out by a team at the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth at Warwick University in the UK, And they've even come up with an explanation.

The researchers believe many bright children often feel isolated because of their high IQs - so they tend to seek comfort in loud music. They believe lyrics dealing with alienation and hate can be a form of escape for brain boxes.

Went to see Black Sabbath (heaven and hell) and Megadeth at the casino Tuesday. Fantastic show...there was a third band opening also, not sure of the name but i missed most of them and that seemed like a good thing. Megadeth played most of their hits and a few new songs which weren't bad. Sabbath was spot on...it coulda been 1982. They sounded great. Did about half or more of the songs off each of the three Dio albums and 2 new cuts from their collection that's out. Here's some fair pics and links to a few video cuts I took...they're not great since I didn't want my camera confiscated and the mic was gettin vaporized cuz the sound was sooo loud. You get the idea...

Megadeth...





Sabbath...

Squeegeeking,

Queensryche was a great metal band in their early days. It was all down hill however after Operation Mindcrime.

Check out a few of the sample tracks from their early stuff:

Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/05/07 04:23 PM

Queensryche, The Warning, Rage for Order, and Operation Mindcrime are metal classics. After Mindcrime, Empire and The Promised Land are very good albums. But as Jim mentioned, they went downhill. Their latest albums are poor. Their old stuff remains some of my favorite music, though.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 06/07/07 10:11 PM

Metallica Singer Held at Airport for 'Taliban' Beard...



Metallica: Terrorist threat?
Dotmusic - Friday, July 6 06:30 pm

Metallica singer James Hetfield was investigated by UK airport officials who believed he was a terrorist this week, it has been claimed. The star was barred entry to Luton airport on Thursday and questioned by staff who were concerned about his appearance. Fears that Hetfield might be involved in terrorism were apparently founded on his "Taliban-like beard", according to The Times. He was allowed to leave the airport after a brief interrogation, when he persuaded officials that he was a rock star. Metallica play Live Earth at Wembley Stadium in London tomorrow, before headlining the venue for their own show on Sunday evening.

Thats one song you dont hear in any 80s tribute or blast from the past.
thanks man.

here is one of my old youtube playlists of retro rock classics that use to play at work when needed. I guess some of its grunge, glam rock, sleaze glam, .. not sure if all qualifies as traditional heavy metal. I dunno. Silly thinking back at it, esp. now that history has qualifed with such gay descriptive names, ie dokken as glam rock.

Big Hair, Spandex, and loud music, the good ole days............
My band list has about every band that ever played, Rock, Punk or Metal, some I've seen dozens of times.......
I could have bought a house with all the money I spent having a good time back then...
Best local band was Obsession and Cryer.
Best Club was the Agora Ballroom in West Hartford, was there every Fri/Sat night for metal....
Those who were CT metal regulars from 1980-1990 knew me well those years...I was the guy that looked like he was in the Band but wasn't and I had quite a female friend base back then.......

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/31/07 01:39 AM

Squeeg,
I did the long hair look after the crew cut days in Punk. I had much more fun in the early metal days but the closeness of the punk scene I'll never forget. You truly KNEW each and everyone involved then whether they were from the NYC scene, Hartford Crew or the New Haven crowd. Punkers were at New Wave shows occasionally, also ska shows esp at Toads. I used to hang at Ron's Place for the Saucers (1977 on) and the Reducers shows. Also hung at the Arcadia Ballroom for shows like the Plasmatics. Anyone remember them! Thats where I met a ton of metal chix too, they were 'crossing over musically' there...esp at rock cover band nights. I am a Music Chameleon, I fit in at most shows regardless, just an outfit change was needed to be 'appropriate'. I've seen way over 500 bands from 1976 to current and thats no exaggeration...ton of money spent but I never regret it since I met tons of people.......Big Dee

Wagon, you old Rocker.
I worked for a sound company back in the 80's (all kinds of music) and reggae DJed at some clubs(El n Gee, Shenanigans, etc..) too. Do you remember Third World International Cafe on Whalley Ave.? I used to hang there. Doing sound and going to shows I've seen over a 1,000+ all styles and met many musicians. Great memories and funny stories. Next time we hit the surf remind me to tell you some good ones.

John,
I remember the El n Gee Club as well as Third World, never been there but drove by plenty of times. Not my cup of tea then, I needed music that roared and shouted back at me then so Reggae wasn't the ticket. If you took a few steps southward you would have been at the Agora Ballroom in New Haven, now thats noise I could handle! we'll talk more bout this on the sand soon! W.M.

Yeah and was told no you were a hired hand, they can do what they want to do. Sorry, too bad, so sad. Someone I used to work with either knew him or one of his friends played with VV and said he was the most arrogant SOB you would ever meet. Anyone who would send a guitar back to Jackson Guitars atleast a dozen times b/c it was not the exact shade of shocking pink, has got some issues.

Agreed, Kev. But I have to admit that I usually like him as one of the self-appointed spokesmen for 1980's "metal" scene on VH-1. He's got the gift of gab for sure...and he did make a good scene in court when the PMRC/ Tipper Gore were pushing to label certain artists and albums as "indecent".
Posted by: hsb

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/10/07 03:26 PM

I will agree with that Matt. Though when he did testify, he gave away the mystique of a rocker to being a father. Love the VH-1 top 100 Metal songs, albums, etc. If his stuff was "indecent" then, I am an umpa lumpa.

The tribute album is a great album, actually the only Ozzy album I have. I could not imagine having that kind of talent playing guitar. I am ok, but, he had more talent in his little finger, than I have in my entire body.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/10/07 04:43 PM

I once read that by the age 16 his guitar teacher told his mother that he had nothing left to teach him.so from there Randy went on to teach students himself..He never tried to dublicate anyone but many have tried to copy his style and i dont know of many who have succeded

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 12/12/07 09:23 PM

Peeps,
The papers said Kevin died of 'accidental' cocaine overdose.
I saw Quiet at the Agora Ballroom in New Hven and they were just ok in my book.
I saw all the Hair Bands but also 90% of the heavy stuff too. I'm a well rounded metal head. Well rounded Punk too.
Someone asked if I saw Vice and thats a yes but I don't remember them like other CT bands like Cryer, Obsession (my fav) Fates Warning, all of Jimi Bell's bands, the list is endless.
I saw Megadeath at the Keg House anyone remember that place? I was in there almost every Fri/Sat night during the mid-late 80's when I wasn't at the Agora. I didn't travel out of state since too much was happening on here, besides driving long distance in a post barroom state in the early am is not encouraged but being the way I was then you couldn't talk me out of it. My friends all hit Long Island when a Show was not to be missed. Its still the best years of my life.
Yeah, I saw Priest, Maiden, Metallica, Ozzy, Dio, Sabbath, Motorhead, all the usual stuff at least several times.
John PRR, I started my music concert venture with an early tour of Cheap Trick in New Haven then progressed to the later years of Ron's Place. In college I booked bands for the Student Union during my soph/junior years. Most were local acts.
I saw all the early-mid Punk/New Wave stuff before I was converted to Metal. Pistols, Clash, Ramones, Dead Boys, as well as New Wave like Fleshtones, Wall Of Voodoo, Gang Of Four, Elvis Costello, many Brit bands too many to name, you name it I'll tell you if I saw it...I have several hundred bands listed in my 'Bands I've Seen' list. Some were god awful, others were excellent. Too bad it all ended... W.M.

A quote from Lars on the new record. Hope it's not wishful thinking that it might be good.

"But whereas 'St. Anger' was an exercise in over-pummelling the listener, these new songs echo some of our stuff from the '80s- long, epic journeys through different musical landscapes, heavier, but a lot more melodic."

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 12/27/07 02:35 AM

Lars hasn't played a decent drum since "Justice", I don't see them getting any better.(Saw them in concert twice for that tour, Lars couldn't pull off the little double bass thing in "one", both times!)
You can't blame age either, (see; Nile:Tombs of Nefrencaa, that Drummer was 40 during the recording & still does it to this day!!)
St. Blowhard was a horrible recording of self indulgance. (See;musical masturbation)
If Hetfield can keep from trying (and failing) to sing old Irish folk tunes, then MAYBE the album might be worth the plastic it's recorded on. I doubt it.
Dare I say it, but they were a better band back when they were a bunch of drunks pounding out tunes.
Unfortunately, that brand of metal has fallen out of favor with the masses....so now we're stuck with watered down crap like "Korn" & "Slipknot".
Simply because there's no money in innovation.
Hell, I've started listening to Jazz, at least they don't give it up for a dollar.
Modern music corporations have come full circle;
Create the product, package the product, sell the product.
This is what they were doing in the 50's. Nothing new there, accept the musicians didn't have unlimited tracks, digital processed recordings & tone & time sync capability that the modern hack does.
Kind of makes you wonder what RR's "Dee" would have sounded like if it was recorded this year. Probably mind blowing.
It also makes you wonder if the crap we now accept & ingest as music was created by people, or machines.

Now THAT is how you rant about metal, as an old, haggard & bitter diehard metalhead!!!
I miss my band!!:D

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/19/08 04:15 PM

Zach is one hell of a player and a really good guy to boot.
I've had the pleasure of meeting him twice.
Once, back in 88' at East Coast music mall during a guitar clinic.
(Back then it was "Ozzy's new guy" or "Zach who??".
1st thing he said when he got up on stage is "So you guys are all here to learn about playing guitar? Well, ya ain't gonna learn sh!t here!" and ripped into a hellatious version of "sweet home alabama".
He sang all the stuff too (lots o' Black sabbath, some ozzy stuff & even some Clapton)
End of the clinic you did the meet & greet thing.
I had a Les Paul Gold top I wanted him to sign, he picked it out of the case, looked it over and played it a little. He refused to sign the front, "This thing is WAY to nice to deface it!"
Started BS'ing about guitars, beer & cars, ("dude check this out, they gave me 3 cases of beer & a Vette for a rental, who the hell is THAT stupid?!?") held up the line a little then left.

Next time was years later, used to be a club in Waterbury (can't remember the name, next to a bail bonds place. We opened for his band. Pretty freakin cool! Still A very "regular guy" & not opposed to hanging out for a beer after the show & shootin' the $hit.

It looks like Jimmy Paige is wanting to tour...Lets hope.

I heard about that show. Rob Zombie was very good from what I have heard.

I would have liked to hear them in the Sun arena it must have been real loud.

I have see both of them many times at the Meadows in Hartford. Ozzies voice does not carry to good anymore.

VAN HALEN is up next at the casino!!! WHOWW!!!!!

Anyone into Testament? They just announced '08 tour dates. They have a new album coming this April:

They have an April 6 show in NYC:

Knock on wood, Chuck Billy is doing well after beating cancer.

Great quote from the KNAC.com article:
 Quote:
Far and away one of the most influential bands in all of modern metal. While other veteran acts soak up much of the spotlight with sing a-longs, Testament maintains the unsurpassed musicianship, integrity and brutality that continue to create an untouchable legacy.

Anyone see the Gene Simmons reality show recently where the family went fishing? Wow, he looked totally out of place holding a rod and he got all squeamish about hooking fish. And, when his farm-bred wife was gutting the fish they caught, he couldn't even watch. For a guy that spit blood all over the stage for years, you figure he wouldn't be such a wuss. Put Gene Simmons at the top of the non-outdoorsmen-rocker list!

Posted by: slacktide

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 03/22/08 02:45 PM

Movie = Crossroads, Ralph Machio,

For Ozzy:
Rhoads (easy one, pioneer of modern metal)
Zakk (extremely under rated, classical & jazz background is tremendous, "chicken pickin" thing started about 4 years into his career)
Jake E lee doesn't even belong in this conversation! (Quote: "I never practice, I want to keep it challenging" BS!!!)

i agree wylde is awesome,,but Jake e lee ran into the same thing rhodes did and that was when they were being taught both of their teachers said that they both had nothing left to teach them..personally i think Lee is overlooked

It was great to see veteran thrashers and one of my favorite bands, Testament, on Sunday night in NYC. They put on a great show and did not disappoint. Only wish they could have played longer. It was great to see them in a club atmosphere. They'll be back around later this year as part of a tour with Judas Priest and Motorhead and will be at Mohegan Sun.

Looking forward to their new album coming out this month. Out of all of the 80s thrash bands, these guys are still cranking out quality metal, unlike Metallica.

I can't believe I've been on this site for a couple years and haven't seen this thread! I feel like I'm a dying breed. Glad to hear Testament was awesome. Souls of Black and Practice What You Preach are two of my favorites. As for Metallica, I'm a die hard and have been for over 20 years. The last few albums have been http://www.ctfisherman.com/. Hoping that this next one can turn it around. 15 years is way too long to not have a great album! As for the Ozzy guitarists...got to go with Randy. I love Zack, not only in Ozzy but in Black Label, but Randy's riffs were revolutionary...he was ahead of his time. Jake E Lee...come on. Does anyone remember Badlands...

This was really good- goes way back to the 70s and traces even the most current genres of metal to today. There's so much in Europe/Scandinavia right now that doesn't reach the US mainstream.

Currently stuck in my iPod:

As I Lay Dying - An Ocean Between Us, Fall of Ideals
I Killed the Prom Queen - Music of the Recently Deceased

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/13/08 02:05 AM

Back to the band discussed in the first post on this thread that was started five years ago. I have very low expectations ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallica%27s_ninth_studio_album

Death Magnetic is the upcoming ninth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica. It is scheduled for release on September 12, 2008 by Warner Bros. Records.[3] The album will be the band's first to feature current bassist Robert Trujillo, and the first to be produced by Rick Rubin.[4] It will also be their first studio album released through Warner Bros., although they still remain with Warner Music Group, which also owns Elektra Records, the band's previous label. The album will be promoted by the preceding single "The Day That Never Comes", released in August.

Starting on May 12, 2008 (2008-05-12), the future album has been heavily promoted on the specially dedicated website, entitled "Mission Metallica," which features daily updates of exclusive, behind-the-scenes sneak previews with photos and video clips from the studio.[5] On June 14, 2008 (2008-06-14), it revealed the album's official title, and on May 15, 2008 (2008-05-15), Lars Ulrich confirmed that Metallica recorded 11 songs for Death Magnetic, although only 10 will appear on the album due to the constraints of the physical medium.[6] On August 9, at Ozzfest, Metallica performed the song "Cyanide".

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/13/08 02:15 AM

So psyched for this album. Rick Rubin has a knack for producing incredible albums, and Metallica needs to bounce back after the St. Anger disaster. It better be good. I think it will be.

My thoughts!
#1 Hire Jason back and can Rob

#2 Get back to the material from the Black album back minus Justice

#3 Don't stay away from doing shows in the U.S. for three plus years.

I heard a new track and thought it sounded good. We will see though.
Posted by: slacktide

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/13/08 03:54 PM

I've already heard the first 2 tracks from this new slab of garbage, will someone please tell Hetfield he's not a crooner???
Guitars were weak, bass is tinny, sounds like a punk album, sans the angst.
Long gone are the days of rich tonallity and thick guitar tone and thunderous drumming that put Metallica on the map.
I heard the new songs for free and I still felt ripped off.
"Kill 'em All" could rival this new found disaster in production quality, which musically has all the edge of the latest Kenny G album.
(I think Ruben was asleep at the wheel on this one, either that or Lars had final say in what is to become "A whole new breed of SUCK")

Fortunately, there were no sharp pencils near by with which to dig my eardrums out with, as this melodically impotent and productionally challenged drivel left me praying to "un-hear" it.

On a positive note, Lars seems to have found his left leg that's been missing for the last 2 discs, which he should use to kick himself in the taint for even contemplating slapping the Metallica brand on this soon to be epic failure of an album.

Cliff Burton will be rolling in his grave.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/17/08 12:09 AM

I want to hear the entire album before saying the have to can Rob. He was incredible with Suicidal, but may have a little to much funk for Metallica. Jury is still out. As for getting back to their roots...ain't gonna happen. Black album was amazingly 16 yrs ago (damn I'm old. I remember driving 30 miles to buy it in Lake George on my vaca). Since then, I think that Load rocked, Re-load sucked, and I can't even comment on St. Anger. I was psyched after hearing the title track, and then pissed after buying the album. Could not have been worse. Only tune off the new one I've heard is Cyanide. Not impressed. Hopefully the rest of the album is a hell of a lot better, or else I think it's time to put a fork in possibly the greatest metal band of all time. At least they announced a tour later this year. Can't wait to see them again! Youtube has videos of the new song from Ozzfest last week, for anyone interested.

Posted by: Jeremiah G

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/19/08 03:36 PM

As the years have passed and I have gotten older I have been getting into darker and harder metal, Mettalica doesn't even come close anymore. Now, I think of them as "stuck up, mainstream, sally wankers".

For those of you that like real metal and hardcore mosh pits, take a look at Cradle of Filth, Lamb of God and Static-X....to name a few.

Cradle of Filth is from England and are very popular in Europe and Scandanavia. I think they will be touring in the states next year, they have a new album coming out in October. They are definately my favorite...

Lamb of god is similiar to Pantera.

Static-X is like a cross between Rob Zombie and Pantera.

Scandanavia is the new hotbed for Metal. There are several great newer bands coming out of there.

As some of you know Kamelots singer Kahn is from Norway.

Saint Deamon is another very good Metal band that is from Norway with Norwegian Jan-Thore Grefsatd at vocals.

John, me and some buddies used to play the Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush "Live" album quite a lot back in the 1980's (at top volume). His song "Dragonfly" was very cool live and his live version of "Purple Haze" actually did the song justice, imo.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/07/08 10:58 PM

I listened to the 5 today, and while it's definitely better than St.Elsewhere, Slacktide says it best. It still has that somewhat flat, garage band sound. A 2D version of a 3D band.

Maybe HydraSportBasser sums it up best. New Metallica. Kinda like New Coke back in the day. It's just not the same.
Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/09/08 09:42 PM

I remember the thrill of waiting for And Justice for All to come out in 1988. There was no Internet or satellite radio to get teases of what it would sound like. I sill remember unwrapping the cassette tape, excited about what I would hear. Would it match up to their first three masterpieces -- Kill Em All, Ride the Lightening and Master of Puppets?

Fast forward 20 years and everything is much different these days. There are many bands who have followed in Metallicas footsteps that have produced some really great music.

Sadly, the bottom line is that Metallica no longer stands out in the sea of music out there. If they werent Metallica, I dont think these songs would even catch our attention and get a second listen. The production is flat and the sound doesnt even compare to so many bands out there now.

Long gone are the days when a Metallica song was epic masterpiece in listening pleasure. It totally boggles my mind how the guys can listen to what they have recorded and think it matches what other bands are doing.

The last Metallica album (St. Anger) was complete and utter garbage. So, the one positive is that what Ive heard from Death Magnetic is an improvement. And, they still rock live.

But, I wont be buying this album and I currently have no plans to see them on tour.

This album should have been titled Death Metalic.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/09/08 09:52 PM

I don't like the European death metal as much as the American originators, like Obitury.



Probably my favorite European band (besides Priest & Sabbath) is Kreator ...

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/09/08 10:02 PM

Made the mistake of buying St. Crap, cant bring myself to listen to an entire song on it. The new one still sounds alot like Load, wasnt a big fan of that either. Like you Mitch, wont run out to buy this one, thats for sure.
Posted by: Stormshadow

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/11/08 03:35 PM

A LOT of people didn't like the black album when it first came out. I think Death Magnetic has a chance at least. At least it is a step in the right direction. I can't say that I DON'T like it.
Posted by: mrmooch1

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/12/08 01:19 AM

The entire album is available for free listening on Metallica's website. I've heard 6 songs so far. I'd say 3 are very good, and 3 are good. Everything I've heard is WAY better than St. Anger...which sucked. I just got tix to see them in NJ the day before the Super Bowl. Great weekend!

Look...the bottom line is that the days of old Metallica is done. The reason they were so great is because they were unique 27 years ago. Now they are like so many other bands out there, but I respect the fact that they continue to try new things. While it doesn't always work, I give them credit for trying. I saw them about a dozen times between 1988 and 1995, but haven't had much desire since then given what they have put out, and the fact that they have had a number of outdoor festival type shows in the area, and I hate those. At this point, I'm 33, have loved them since Puppets in '86, and can't wait to see them again. I wasn't sure about the new stuff and it took a few listens to appreciate it as much as I do right now. In addition, I think the new video (also on the website) it phenomenal. I know that they're new stuff will not be like the old, but I'm okay with that. Lars sounds great, Kirk is soloing again, and while the songs are all about two minutes too long, they are heavy, sound really good, and that is something that I have missed for the past decade. Nice to have the boys back to where I can get excited to see them again. I have no doubt they will rock live! If they come to CT or MSG, I'll be going again. They are one of the best acts ever and this old man is going to act like he's 20 again. HELL YEAH!

PS One really cool thing they are doing this tour is that when you buy a ticket to see them live, they mail you a free copy of the new album and give you a code to get a free download of the show that you go to. What other band does that? Can't say they don't give a crap about their fans.

Just downloaded the new album on guitar hero for ps3. nothing like experiencing it while playing it. I Love the 21st century!!! Give this album a chance. It's waayyyyyy better than the crap from the last ten years. It's not as good as anything prior to 1993, but is probably the best album since the black.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/15/08 05:04 PM

Yes, Mitch,

You have it right. Metallica has a lot more competition these days. Let's face it, they are old, rich and lack that anger, rage and ambition they used to have. Those attributes along with being sober usually do not equate to good tunes. But, as you said, a lot of bands would not be out there if it was not for Metallica. But, I bet you they could swing some good country tunes nowadays.....

I listened to a few songs on their new album. I don't like them, they are weak, comparitively speaking, though, my grandmother agrees as well. I do still like the Black album, tis good.

Yes, Dimmu Borgir is awesome. Them and Cradle are my favorites, no doubt..Another one to check out is Graveworm..I just wish they would come to the states.

The new Guns N' Roses album is set to come out on Nov. 23.

Radio stations started playing it today. I heard the title track earlier today. It sounded a little like Nine Inch Nails meets Guns N' Roses. It was OK. Wonder how the entire album will sound.

KRock will be playing the song at 2pm today:

Def. not worth the wait for that song. Not bad, but not what, 10-15 yrs, of waiting. Though it is better than the crap that Metallica just put out.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/22/08 06:11 PM

Not too big of fan of the new GNR song. Maybe after a few listens I'll think differently.

Couldn't disagree with you more Kevin, about the new Metallica. I think it rocks. Haven't been able to stop listening to it since the day it came out. Some GREAT stuff on there. Not sure if you have listened to the entire album or not, and if so, how many times, but after the third listen I was feeling like it was the 90's again. Check out song 5, All Nightmare Long. Also, the instrumental (song 9) is as good as the ones from there past. You should definitely give it another chance. Can't wait to the show in January!

Joe, they are playing the first single on WCCC and WPLR, decent song. It is the normal AC/DC formula which I think works for them, though Brian Johnson's voice has had better days, he lost it with The Razor's Edge.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/22/08 07:34 PM

I have listened to it or atleast attempted to listen to Death Magnetic and I just cant get into it. I think it sounds like Load, which in it self, wasnt a bad album, just not as good as some of the other stuff. Hetfield's singing doesnt have the punch it used to, the guitars not nearly heavy enough for a Metallica album, but I will say atleast there is not the incessant ringing of the snare drum for the last piece o'chit they put out. Just doesnt have the umph that the older stuff had, but that is just my opinion.

Although I haven't listened to the whole Metallica album, from the songs I have heard, I agree with Hydra.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 10/22/08 09:04 PM

I listened to all of Black Ice the other night on YouTube. It's very classic AC/DC for the most part. As long as they're around, rock n' roll ain't gonna die.

Favorite track so far is Stormy May Day. It is kissing cousins to Led Zeppelin's In my time of Dying. Bluesy with the slide guitar. They do well when they wander off their usual path. Wish they'd do it a little more.

Maybe i'll poke around for the now old "new" GNR stuff later.

AC/DC's Johnson 'overwhelmed' by CD's success
By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY, AP Music Writer Nekesa Mumbi Moody, Ap Music Writer 2 hrs 14 mins ago

NEW YORK AC/DC made their new album, "Black Ice," available only at Wal-Mart and through their Web site, but that hasn't limited its success: The CD not only has topped the charts in more than two dozen countries, it debuts atop the latest U.S. album chart with sales of more than 780,000 copies.

"It's overwhelming, and quite hard to take in," the legendary group's lead singer, Brian Johnson, said Wednesday after learning his group had 2008's second-biggest album debut.

"Even an old dog like me has a few more surprises in life, I guess," he said, chuckling.

The group beat out "High School Musical" for the No. 1 spot. According to figures released Wednesday by Nielsen SoundScan, "Black Ice" sold some 784,000 copies in its first week of release; the teen-oriented movie soundtrack sold about 297,000 copies. (The year's biggest album debut so far belongs to Lil Wayne, with a million copies sold of "Tha Carter III.")

In making Wal-Mart the only retailer for their album, AC/DC joined the likes of the Eagles and Journey, who have all had strong success.

"It was a win-win situation, and they decided to make it into a big thing with AC/DC merchandise and good deals with the other albums with the catalog," Johnson said. "This has been a wonderful thing."

The CD has topped the charts in 29 countries since its release in the recent days.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/20/08 12:38 AM

Check it out. A rock album based on fishing by the band Shram along with muskie expert Pete Maina.



One song "Muskie Maniac" ain't half bad

10/24/2008 : Rockin' About Fish Tales



Rockin' About Fish Tales
The Macomb Daily
Sunday, Oct. 26th, 2008
Article by Tom Watts

Kid Rock sings about taking walleye from the dock, but Sterling Heights musician Brian Schram croons about muskie, smallmouth bass, northern pike, king salmon and being skunked.

Ive done the straight up thing for rock, and been hooked on fishing since I was 12, but never really thought to mix the two, said Brian Schram, front man for the band Shram.

When I met Pete Maina he inspired me to do both. He loved the whole rock n roll thing. I thought, Hes right. This is who I am. Why not? Tell people who you are, and be real. People dont want fake. And this fishing and music thing is real, as real as you can get.

With his first album Disturbing the Peace under his belt, Shram is releasing a side project album next month called, Rockin Fish Tales.

You get a heavy dose of Shram rock n roll, but the songs are all about fishing, said Schram, who once played for Uncle Kracker. For Rockin Fish Tales, I play all the instruments and wrote a song for every fish I catch: muskie, pike, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, king salmon, he said. Ive got some good variety. I even have a song about being skunked.

Schram, 26, grew up in Mancelona, and now makes his home in Macomb County . He would go trout stream fishing as a kid with his father, Steve, and a mutual admiration for all things fishing was formed.

I expect the record to draw interest, said Schram, who is soon releasing his second all-out rock album called Shut Up and Press Play. Maybe itll get people to go out and fish. I can tell you fishing is not for geeks. Fishing is actually very cool, he said.

Schram said he discovered his genuine interest for large freshwater fish when he was watching an outdoors cable television program from Minnesota on muskie fisherman Pete Maina.

Last year I was watching Pet Maina catch these big giant fish on a show called The Next Bite, Schram recalled. He had this long hair and I knew he was a rocker.

Schram e-mailed Maina after watching him on cable, and 20 minutes later he received a message.

He got back with me right away and we were chatting, and he picked up on the realness right away, Schram said. Its not like I ever looked at a fishing angle to push my band, my music. But he picked up on it.

The rest, as they say, is history.

I went out fishing with Pete in Minnesota last summer and he asked me to be a guest on the John Gillespie Waters and Woods show out of Milwaukee , Schram said. We had a successful show. Shortly after, I hooked up with John again and wrote him a theme song for the show something cool and crazy. Its now his theme song. Its called, Hey, John Gillespie.

Schram said Maina has since taken me under his wing as his little prodigy.

I have learned so much about muskie fishing, Schram said. I went from spending days catching nothing to catching 30-40 muskie.

But heres the real catch: Schram only casts for muskie; no trolling. Im strictly a caster, said Schram, who hooked into a 40-pound, 54 inch monster muskie last summer.

I got this crazy thing going where we wear pink hats with our logos on it whenever we fish, Schram said with a laugh. I figure people know me as the pink hat guy. You know, that rocking pink hat guy.

Besides his fishing with talking heads in Minnesota and Wisconsin , Schram just participated in a video shoot with Mark Zona on The Greatet Fishing Show in the World, which will air in January on ESPN.

Zona was very cool, Schram said. I did my casting thing with him, and the thing I love about it is its a different thing than trolling. I mean, trolling charters, they work their butts off, constantly changing lures. With casting you have certain target areas and try to find the most fish.

Schram said a muskie will follow a lure for a time. Thin hit it. You see them coming a long ways away, he said. If you stick your rod in water and do a figure eight, they will follow and hit it. Thats whats so exciting about casting.

When youre casting you see some real crazy stuff. You see a muskie below the boat just lollygagging and not taking anything. It triggers that fish with the figure eight.

Schram used Pet Maina Bass Pro Shops 9 foot rod and reels to go with his bait. I use blades, crank baits, plastics, jerk baits, bucktails, bulldogs, spinner baits, anything with a blade on it, he said. Ive got it covered.

Schrams band, meanwhile, consists of Dave Dion of Macomb County on bass, and drummer Jason Hartless of Warren . The music is nothing fancy, just guitar-driven rock and roll with guitar solos, Schram said.

There are good hooks, a great sense of melody. Its in your face rock n roll. Its whats missing these days; bands dont get in your face and just let you have it. Our live performance draws people who want that.

On the heals of a Lions opening day performance at The Fillmore in Detroit, Shram is currently on the road for an East Coast run before returning to Michigan.

The two things why I love my life right now are the two things I do the most: music and fishing, Schram said. I do them equally. I see me learning more about muskie. I see myself as the next Ted Nugent of fishing. Teds known as a world-class hunter. I want to be that fishing. I think its a cool way to go. Ive actually started casting T-shirts out into the crowd with my muskie rod. People love it.

Respected colleague Mike Boggio of Royal Oak said the connection between fish and guitar helps Schram form a unique identity.

Theres no one like Brian Schram, said Boggio, president of Integrated Construction and Design. Hes truly a fisherman. But his band has a raw sound that is a bit of a throwback with crushing guitars and punchy rock, pop vocal hooks hat define the true nature of rock n roll leaving fans breathless and in awe.

For those interested in the New, yes NEW Guns n Roses, you can listen to the album in its entirety streaming on their MySpace page. The more I listen to it, sounds like a cross between where GnR left off and maybe Marilyn Manson/Rob Zombie. Not sure how long they are gonna keep it so hurry, new album due out in a week or so. Better than the crap Metallica put out lately.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/23/08 01:21 AM

Thanks for the link Kevin. As for the new Metallica...still couldn't disagree with you more. In my opinion, it's awesome. I've listened to it non-stop for two months, and I can't wait for the show. Rick Rubin is a genius, and he's made Metallica great again. I'd love some other opinions from those who have listened to the album a few times. Have no desire to hear from the haters who listened once and made up their mind that it sucked. Every album needs at least three listens...and Death Magnetic deserves a lot more!
Posted by: hsb

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/23/08 11:22 AM

Thats fine, I have tried to listen to it quite a few times and just cant get into it. Def. better than the previous two releases, but hey we are all allowed our own opinions. Rick Rubin is a great producer, he has done some great stuff. This one just isnt for me.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/23/08 06:42 PM

Gotcha buddy. I just picked up the new GNR. Listened to the first 6 songs so far. Wow...who the hell bought the synthesizer for gnr. Not impressed so far, but I'll give it the three listens and see if it gets any better.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/23/08 06:45 PM

Chinese Democracy is getting some airplay on WCCC, dont mind it too much, listened to it from the link. Yeah, lil too much synth, gone to the goth, Marilyn Mason/Zombie/Rammstein side of things. If it took him that long to get the album to that point, wow. All in all, dont think I will be running out to get it right away, maybe if I go on a CD buying binge, but I doubt it.
Posted by: Dennis D

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 12/05/08 09:33 PM

Loving the New GNR CD best album of the year, thats all I have listened to since the release date. IMO worth every minute of the wait(ive followed the saga/rumors daily since '01) This album blows Metallica and AC/DC's albums out the water.Which I consider both generic nostalgia.Its Not supposed to sound like the Old band,if thats what you expect then the album is not for you.Not as good as Appitite For Destruction but i'd put it higher than Either of the Illusions discs.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 12/07/08 06:39 PM

I've definitely come around on this album. I wish it was just called Axl Rose instead of GNR b/c it sounds absolutely nothing like GNR. Not a riff to be found on the album. That being said, while I laughed the first time I listened, by the third time I started liking it. Now, I'm all over it. I totally appreciate what Axl has done, but like you said...nothing like their old stuff. I disagree with album of the year. As I've posted several times, I much prefer Death Magnetic, as Rick Rubin has finally gotten Metallica back to what they should be, but this is right up there. If you're an Axl fan, it's well worth the ten bucks! You just may need to listen a few times before you appreciate it.
Posted by: hsb

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 12/07/08 06:45 PM

Def. a progression for "GnR". Axl is still a whack job, but the sob can sing his arse off. I dont buy alot of cd's anymore, may have to go out and get this one though. Dont think Appetite for Destruction will be topped for a GnR album. But I wouldnt expect another App for Destruction either, the members of the band and their history together are what formed that album. Last month or so there was an article in Playboy about the early days of GnR and how those early days influenced Destruction.

Headed down to NJ last night to check out Metallica on the Death Magnetic tour. They played for almost 2.5 hours, and with the exception of "Nothing Else Matters", the show was balls to the wall metal. Great mix of new stuff and old, and the boys are sounding great. Awesome to hear half the show consisting of Lightning, Kill Em All, and Puppets. Here's the set list. If you are a fan, I'd highly recommend seeing them on the second leg.

That Was Just Your Life
The End Of The Line
Ride The Lightning
For Whom the Bell Tolls
One
Broken, Beat And Scarred
Cyanide
Sad But True
...And Justice For All
All Nightmare Long
The Day That Never Comes
Master Of Puppets
Battery
Nothing Else Matters
Enter Sandman

I'm going to be out of town that weekend and am bumming I can't make this show or their NJ date. I'm hoping they add a NYC date. I saw them last April in NYC in and they rocked! Out of all of the thrash bands still making music, I think they are the best.

I saw Testament at Streets in New Rochelle in 1988 and then open for Megadeth and Priest a couple years later. Its amazing they are still kicking ass 20 years later. Alex Skolnick has a couple side projects and you can catch him in some very small clubs. I think he just played in Pawling NY and there is a gig on his website for 4/25 in Danbury.www.alexskolnick.com

Last thing I knew was what I read on the Liege Lord website (which is currently down). This was from an interview with guitarist, Paul Nelson. I believe the interview was conducted in 2000.

 Quote:
What ever happened to Liege Lord singer Andy Michaud who sang on Freedom's Rise and Burn To My Touch?

I spoke with him recently. He's living in the Carolinas and is doing fine. He is fully aware of Liege Lord's resurgence of popularity and is very happy about it! Maybe we can get him to sing a few shows!

FWIW, I happen to miss the good ole' southern boys boys who preffered moonshine, fistfights and women... of course.

Blackfoot, Molly Hatchett and even some Skynyrd songs border on a very hard rock sound at times. Some even considered Blackfoot as Heavy Metal, although I always heard the blues come through in the end.

Just found this thread and read a bit of it. I would rather be forced to catch Sea Robins and 12 inch sand sharks the rest of my life, then ever have to hear another Skynrd song. I actually ended up at a Skynrd concert way back when, because Tesla opened for them and I had to leave at minute 24 of the Freebird encore. I couldnt take it any more. I also suspect if I had brought a bluefish into the concert, the tooth count at the venue would have doubled. Yea, I'm hating.....but it is a metal thread.

Lyrics below from the verses in Motorheads self titled song I posted above...

Still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up when I hear it, and I've been a fan since 1982-83.

---------------------------------------------------------------

"Sunrise, wrong side of another day, sky high and 6 thousand miles away. Dont know, how long I been awake, wound up in an amazin' state. Cant get enough, and you know its righteous stuff, goes up like prices at Christmas"

(Chorus)

"Lay down, total amnesia, get some mental anesthesia. Dont move, I'll shut the door and kill the lights. I guess I'll see you all on the ice. All good clean fun, have another stick of gum. Man you look better already".

(Chorus)

"Fourth day, 5 day marathon, we're moving, like a parallegogram.
Dont move I'll shut the door and kill the lights, I guess I'll see you all on the ice. I should be tired, but all I am is wired, aint felt this good for an hour".

(Chorus).

Killswitch frontman falls for us hook, line and sinker
Winnipeg Free Press
By: Rob Williams

If Howard Jones smells a little fishy on stage Saturday, you'll know he had a good day.

The Killswitch Engage frontman is an avid angler and will be on the water before his band headlines a four-band bill at the Convention Centre featuring In Flames, Protest the Hero and Between the Buried and Me (tickets are $39.50 at Ticketmaster).

"When we get into town I will be fishing, then I'll get to the venue, shower and hit the stage," Jones says.

"Last time up there, I was catching striped bass, some saugers and tons of bullheads. It was a real good time."

Jones has extended family in Winnipeg and has been here even when his band isn't on tour. He has fished the Red River, Netley Creek and Lake Winnipeg. He's got pictures on his phone to prove it.

"I've even gone ice fishing," he says.

Jones grew up in Columbus, Ohio, where there were a limited number of places to cast his rod, but now lives in Connecticut and enjoys saltwater fishing in the ocean.

One of the things he likes about fishing is the isolation. Jones is not a fan of crowds and avoids them whenever possible.

"Once we get onstage I'm fine; I don't feel like I'm me. I am, but I'm performing. It feels like I'm a different person, but before I'm a mess," he explains. "It's a bit of stage fright and crowds, period. There are times I get uncomfortable at the mall."

It's a good thing he can handle larger audiences as a performer, since his metalcore quintet is playing bigger and bigger venues with every album it releases.

This summer they were part of the Mayhem Festival tour with Marilyn Manson and Slayer before launching their own headlining trek.

Prior to the Mayhem tour, some music fans wondered how the travelling festival would pan out, considering Killswitch Engage was kicked off a Slayer tour once because the thrash legends didn't like how guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz acted on stage (he's known for wearing short shorts and a cape during live shows).

"Everything was fine," Jones says. "Adam can be a handful to some people and there was concern about Slayer's crowd, who have been known to be very vocal about things. The tour was great."

The band is on the road supporting its new album, the second self-titled effort in its 10-year existence.

The group-- Jones, Dutkiewicz, guitarist Joel Stroetzel, bassist Mike D'Antonio and drummer Justin Foley -- didn't like any other of the other options for album names and went back to the self-titled idea, since the first one in 2000 featured Dutkiewicz on drums and a different vocalist.

The new album is first time the band has used an outside producer -- Dutkiewicz handled production duties for the group's four previous releases.

"The last album we made, we were definitely happy with it, but it was getting a little too easy to do what we're doing. You get kind of used to it. We wanted to push the envelope and stretch out -- and what better way to do that than to use a new producer," Jones said.

The band worked with Brendan O'Brien (Mastodon, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen) in Atlanta, where Jones lived for two months without the band to work on his vocals, which range from guttural roars to soaring melodic phrases.

"The big difference is in the variety of songs, the lyrics and the vocals. It's still what we do -- heavy parts with big choruses -- but lyrically I touched on a lot of different things. We're generally a pretty positive band, but not every day is sunshine, rainbows and birds chirping, so I thought, 'Fine, I'll touch on this,' when I generally don't.

"And vocally, I try everything. I definitely sing some notes on the album I never hit before," he says. "That's really what we wanted to do: push the envelope of what Killswitch is."

For you Alex Skolnick (Testament)fans. He makes a guest appearance on one track on the new Rodrigo y Gabriela album that came out today. If you don't know about them, they were in a Mexican metal band years ago and now are an acoustic duo where the girl does this amazing pecussion slapping her guitar while strumming at the same time while Rodrigo jams out lead over it. They really are amazing. On their first album they do a cover over Orion by Metallica. The track that Skolnick plays on is called Atman and is dedicated to Dimebag Darrell.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/30/09 01:17 PM

I ventured into NYC last night to see death metal originators, Obituary. These guys have been around since 1985 and I didnt want to pass up a chance to see them.

They delivered what I expected a wall of pure, driving fury. Great band to see live.

Overall, though, I'd rate the show a 6/10. They only played for an hour, which of course left out many songs you wanted to hear. Also, I would have loved to have seen them with guitarist Allen West or James Murphy, instead of the new guy.

It was my first time at this club (The Blender). Nice, small place to see a show. The floor was about the same size as Toad's, maybe smaller. And, they had some elevated theater seating in the back for anyone who wanted to sit. Here's a pic the band posted on its site earlier yesterday:


I took this picture from the pit. I also took some cool video clips, but the audio is just loud static from my cheap cell phone.




Tonight, they're playing at the Palladium in Worcester, MA for anyone up north who wants to check them out.

More on the band if you're unfamiliar with them:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obituary_%28band%29

From the band's website about last night:
 Quote:
Unbelieveable show last night in NY City! This was our first time playing at the Blender Theatre and I found my new favorite club! This place is a great place to play and see a show! NY we really need to thank you all for coming out and making one of the best shows of the tour! We had a lots of friends show up and the party did not want to end until the sun was coming up!

What a beautiful drive we had coming up to MA this moring. The trees are all starting to turn colors and the temperature is starting to cool down! Worchester is a great city to play in and we look forward to our show tonight at the Palladium!

These dudes are metal to the bone.

The journalists who did the filming really took some serious risks.

The whole thing really makes you appreciate the life we have here in the U.S.

Watch when you have some time. It's an hour and 24 mins. It's very powerful.

And, it has a happy ending. They eventually made it here to the U.S.

Second...did anyone see the lineup for night two of the 25 anniversary HOF show at MSG on 10/30. Metallica, Ozzy, U2, Aretha, and Clapton. Not all metal, but talk about a lineup. I hope to get down there!

Saw Metallica at MSG last night. I've probably see them 15-20 times in my life, dating back to 1988, and last night was one of the best. Great sound, set list, crowd. Check out this set list:

That Was Just Your Life
The End Of The Line
Creeping Death
The Shortest Straw
Fade To Black
Broken, Beat And Scarred
My Apocalypse
Sad But True
One
The Judas Kiss
The Day That Never Comes
Master Of Puppets
Dyers Eve
Nothing Else Matters
Enter Sandman Play Video
Encore:
Last Caress (Misfits cover)
Trapped Under Ice
Seek & Destroy

Show was killer...then getting to hear Dyers Eve and Last Caress was phenomenal. Loud and hard all night. The way it should be! Anyone else there?

Here is the latest update on Ronnie James Dio's health from his wife and manager, Wendy Dio:

"Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans.

Thanks to all the friends and fans around the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up.

Long Live Rock and Roll, Long Live Ronnie James Dio"

DIO's European tour, set to kick off November 21 in Glasgow, was cancelled due to Ronnie's hospitalization last week.

AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR w/SLAYER, MEGADETH, TESTAMENT postponed!
Tom Stevens & James Zahn
Thursday, January 07 2010 |04:34 PM

FANGORIA MUSICK just got hit with word that the much anticipated American Carnage Tour, featuring hard rock behemoths Megadeth, Slayer and Testament has been put on hold due to health issues. Slayers bassist/vocalist Tom Araya is in need of back surgery which cannot be postponed.

While disappointed by the tours delay, Megadeth are concerned for Araya and wish him a speedy recovery.

Megadeth are currently scheduling a U.S. headline run for March and April, and hope to reschedule the American Carnage tour for Summer 10. Anyone who has purchased an American Carnage ticket should hold onto it until further notice.

All the bands involved were previously very excited to be touring together as evident by their recent video discussion, which we previously shared with you here.

Stay tuned to FANGORIA MUSICK for the latest updates as they develop, and be sure to visit http://www.megadeth.com for updates on their forthcoming US tour.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/09/10 10:53 PM

BACK SURGERY SCHEDULED FOR SLAYER'S TOM ARAYA,BAND'S TOUR PLANS POSTPONED THROUGH APRIL
Slayer Camp Working Hard to Reschedule Dates for Later This Year

Los Angeles, CA - Thursday, January 7, 2010 -- "Tom gave various medical treatments more than a fair shot," said Slayer's manager Rick Sales, "but they just haven't handled the problem, so he's biting the bullet and is scheduled for back surgery at the end of this month."

This difficult decision made by the band's bassist/vocalist Tom Araya means the cancellation of Slayer's immediate tour plans that include the American and Canadian Carnage Tour dates that were set to kick off on January 18, as well as the band's UK/European tour scheduled for March and April. Booking agents for both Slayer and Megadeth are already hard at work to see if these dates can be rescheduled, so those holding tickets are asked to sit tight as more info will be announced as progress is made.

The headbanging Araya, known for aggressively swinging his long mane of hair while performing, began experiencing back problems while on the band's Australian/New Zealand/Japanese tour last October. In spite of his rapidly increasing pain and discomfort, he carried on with the tour, but immediately upon returning home saw an orthopedic specialist who diagnosed a Cervical Radiculopathy. The rocker initially did not want to take the major surgery route, so the specialist recommended a series of minimally-invasive procedures. While those procedures have resulted in some improvement, Araya continues to deal with intermittent bouts of severe pain, numbness and muscle spasms. The surgical procedure that Araya will undergo, called an Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion, is a relatively routine practice and the recovery rate is excellent.

Sales added, "As unfortunate as this is for so many people - the Megadeth and Testament camps, the concerts' promoters, and, of course, the fans - Tom's health is the number one priority, and this has to happen."

Ditto x 2 - Slayer/Megadeth are too soft for me. I want Satyricon, Cradle of Filth, Belphegor, etc. to come across the pond..

Have a look see at some stuff from Brazil, Sweden, Norway, England...


dimmu borgir

Meshugga

cradleoffilth



Here is some Soulfly (Brazil) - remember Sepultura ?

Soulfly



There is a LOT of music in Memphis, just not blues, jazz, etc. I plan on seeing a lot more live metal there than over here. There is Mud Island in Memphis, which is an island on the Mississippi River that has some crazy concerts.

I'm with you buddy. Love it hard, but hate what I can't understand. Death metal ain't my thing. I find that as I get older, I get more into mainstream hard rock bands. For example, just downloaded Shinedown-The Sound of Madness and LOVE IT! Their cover of Simple Man on a Previous Album is phenomenal as well.

FYI - Heard an interview with Lars this week. He is trying to put a North America tour with Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax together for next year. Sucks that is was only in Europe this year.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 07/25/10 04:45 AM

Jeremiah, I know all of the bands you listed.

I love every Sepultura album with Max Cavalera. (We share the same birthday, but he's two years older than me.) Soulfly and Sepultura without him haven't grabbed me so much.

I like a song here and there by the European death metal bands. I bet Dimmu Borgir would be intense live.

Outside of Judas Priest, my favorite European band is Kreator (although they are really old school thrash).

tbob55,
We have pavillion seats in the 600 section.
I got two for $150 on e-bay that include parking and a flash pass. (Whatever that is), I don't get out much, other than fishing, but am looking forward to the show. I always wanted to see both groups, so it's kind of like two for the price of one.

Good Luck,

Forgot to put up a post that the Slayer/Megadeth/Testament show a few weeks back in Wallingford was good. Slayer killed it and Megadeth was solid. I was bummed to only catch two songs by Testament, as they went right on at 7 p.m. The Slayer pit was exhausting for this 40-year-old. rawk

This is pretty cool. Randy Johnson photographed Megadeth for the Phoenix date on the tour:

I know it's probably bubblegum rock to most of you guys that psot on this thread but I saw Candlebox at the webster a few weeks ago and Stone Temple Pilots last night at Mohegan Sun Arena. Candlebox was a good show But STP put on a fantstic show. I must say Mohegan is a great place to catch a concert. It doesn't look like theres a bad seat in the house and the acoustics were good too.

Oh ya and there were plenty of beer booths and options of flavors as well!

One of my fav's...just read Dave's book....great read and brutally honest.... You gotta wonder if one of the other three in metallica were kicked to the curb early would they have had the talent to succeed as Dave did....?. Never know I guess
Posted by: hsb

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/20/10 05:19 PM

I read an excerpt from the book, about how he "joined" Metallica. Very well written, though some of Dave's ego shines though in it as well, not that James and Lars dont either but thats not the point.

Of the other 3, if any of them could have made it on his own it would have had to be Kirk, cant see James or Lars making it very far without help. Individually they are good, together they were great.

I figured I would add some freshness to the thread. This is Septicflesh, which hail from Greece. They are not mainstream at all, but they rock..

That guy from Gorgoroth is kind of a tool. You do know he bats for the other team right? biggrin



Not that there's anything wrong with that. After all, the metal god, Rob Halford plays for that team.

Going to see Suicidal Tendencies in NYC this weekend. Looking forward to that, as they're one of my all time favorites. Last time I saw them, they were an opener for the ridiculous Insane Clown Posse so the show was short. They're headlining this time, so I hope it's good.

I'd much rather see one or two of them, instead of three. Regardless, hearing Slayer and Megadeth play entire albums live was very cool.

Suicidal Tendencies...whoa..I am jealos..

I am amazed they are still around and I was not aware. They were my first "metal" show mosh pit experience when I was a teen, it was at Toads Place. Never forget it and seen them a couple times after that.

Yeah, I was aware of the pickle smoocher business and he is gone now. He is actually a really sick dude in general. He was a pretty good lead man, though..

Dude - have fun at the show in NYC. I need to get me and give some bruises soon. A vid would be sweet.

I'm right there with you Jeremiah. Saw them in high school down at Roseland with Pantera, Exodus, and ST. One of those shows you never forget. SICK! Too bad their stuff sucked after Art of Rebellion. I still think Rocky George is one of the most underrated metal guitarists of all time. Have fun Mitch!

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/16/10 01:16 PM

Suicidal Tendencies put on a great show on Sunday night in NYC. The venue (Terminal 5) and crowd were both great. Couldnt have asked for a better night. CTF's Scottie J and I had a great time.

Cool to see longtime bands the Cro-Mags and Underdog open up, even if Harley Flanagan wasnt with the Cro Mags. Death Before Dishonor was the first band to go on and they were solid, too.

My phone stinks for video and photos, but there are a bunch of cool videos up on YouTube:

The close of the show was cool when the band let everyone up on stage:



Terminal 5 was a great place to see a show. It included three levels. Below are a few crappy pics from my phone.

There are some much better pics of the night here:

Looking down on the stage before the first band went on.


The place was packed by the time the Cro-Mags hit the stage.

Cro Mags! Suicidal! I can't believe those guys are still playing. I grew up in California and saw them play together in Sacramento when I was in high school. Suicidal was touring their first album. I got a crippling knee to the thigh in the pit that night that still brings a smile to my face 25 years later.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 12/02/10 01:31 PM

Ozzy's show last night at MSG kicked some major ass! The set list, Ozzy's singing, stage presence, his band and the length of the show were all spot on. Amazing considering his age, and all he's done to himself over the years.

I didn't have high expectations for Ozzy and really just wanted to go to see him before he's over the hill. He really delivered the goods.

As for Halford, the set list stunk and his backing band were really just bland. He even said, "I'll see you next year with my other band, Judas Priest." That's really what people want to see. Fight was a much better solo band for him. The only Priest songs they played last night were Jawbreaker, Diamonds & Rust, and Green Manalishi.

I think my buddy got a few decent camera phone pics. Not sure about vids, but a few YouTube clips are starting to show up from last night. Ill post some of it later on.

Pricing tiers released for Big Four at Yankee Stadium

Planning on seeing The Big Four this September? Better have some cash saved up, because the pricing sets for the Yankee Stadium show have been released, and they are not pretty.

According to an email from Metallica.com this morning, there will be four pricing tiers for the historic Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax show. While upper level nosebleed seats are only $90, that price jumps to $119 for lower level seats, followed by $175 for floor tickets at the BACK of the general admission area, and a staggering $225 per ticket for those who want to be in the front GA section. Keep in mind that unless purchased at the box office, additional Ticketmaster and venue fees will be charged as well.

This stands in contrast to the flat $100 it cost to gain admission to the California show two weeks ago, where the entire Coachella venue was general admission because really, who the hell wants to be stuck in seats for five hours of the world's best heavy metal?

But even the fact that there is a general admission floor at all comes as a victory, according to the Big Four Facebook page, as originally it seemed that even the field would be seated just like the Eminem / Jay-Z concert last September, as pictured to the upper left. The Yankee Stadium field crew must be cringing at the thought of repairing the lawn after thousands of fans are finished moshing all over it, making one wonder who exactly thought Yankee Stadium was the best place for this show.

With presales set to start tomorrow for fan club members and Yankee season ticket holders, all of the metal world is abuzz with speculation on whether the show will sell out. In the New York Hard Rock Examiner's personal opinion, while all field GA tickets will be snatched up right away, by the time September comes around, scalpers and brokers will be reselling rear field tickets at face value or lower, and seats may even still be unsold, because frankly, $100+ is a lot a of money for all but the most die-hard heavy metal fans and there are 51,000 seats in the Stadium. That said, if you want to ensure your historic spot at the Big Four, be ready to grab your tickets when they officially go on sale this Friday.

Was planning on waiting it out and going dirt cheap, but has the opportunity to get legends seats right behind the dugout for around face. Given that I'm too damn old to hop in the pit for 8 hrs, a nice comfy leather seat works for me between sets. Didn't realize Metallica was going on that early. Thankful I'll be home by midnight. Was planning on 2ish. Let me know where you are and if you want to meet up for a beer. 914-714-2675

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 09/15/11 11:54 AM

Yesterday's Big 4 show absolutely ROCKED headbanger1 Anthrax was so happy to be playing in their hometown and they sounded great. Def gonna check them out when they tour for their new album.

Megadeth was a little disappointing, but Mustaine is in a ton a pain - sounds like neck surgery for him. Is there a better live song than Peace Sells?!?!

I'm not a big Slayer fan, but I gotta say-- they brought it last night. Kerry King is amazing and their set was killer.

Now to the grand finale - which was Metallica showing everyone why they were the headliner. A set heavy with Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets, they tore it up for 2 hrs. I'd be shocked if anyone who saw the show believes that they didn't blow everyone else off the stage. I have never seen them play that aggressively and their set was the best I've ever seen them do. I love how those bands push each other to be their best.

All in all - absolutely phenomenal! Cops and stadium security could not have been cooler, the fans were respectful and had a great time. I even got out of the parking lot within 5 minutes after the show. Lots of credit to everyone involved with the show. It was an unbelievable experience beginning to end!

LONG LIVE METAL!!!! headbanger1 headbanger1 headbanger1

mrmooch1, nice texting with you during the show.

You pretty much summed it up. Great night.

I didn't know what to expect as for the crowd's behavior, but I didn't see any problems. People were well behaved.

I think the other bands got shafted a bit, because the sound system definitely favored Metallica.

They completely dominated.

I really enjoyed hearing all of Orion played in its entirty. That's not something you'd normally hear from them.

They really needed to turn up the vocals for Slayer's Tom Araya. He got drowned out by the guitars.

Kind of weird to be in seats for a Slayer show. I tried to get on the field, but security had it nailed down.

I only saw one guy rush the field and he was nabbed pretty quickly.

Honestly, I think a club atmosphere better favors all of the opening bands.

I've seen Metallica multiple times over the years and they always deliver. I wish I could say the same about their recent albums, though.

After a full day of tailgating starting right at noon, today is a painful day. But, I'll never say I'm getting too old for METAL! rawk

Here's an old school tailgating pic circa 1989 ...

C'mon Dude- Death Magnetic rocks. Best album since the Black. Granted they lost their way for a decade plus, working with Rick Rubin got them back to where they should be. Love that album.

And agreed - Orion was awesome, as was the little tribute to Cliff. I've never heard them mention his name at a show before.

Not metal- but Chris Cornell's acoustic tour returns to our area this November. Ridgefield is sold out, but Torrington and NYC goes on sale in the next day or two. Saw this show in Bridgeport last April and it was nothing short of amazing. Just him and a guitar on stage. If you are a fan- definitely grab some tix. They'll sell out quickly as each venue is very small.

The bass in VH isn't critical as with, say, Yes or Rush or a band like that. VH is just driving hard rock, and Eddie's guitar is always center stage. If DLR has half his old stage presence and Wolfgang can replace Michael Anthony's high harmonies, then the shows will be a success.

I've waited a long time for this album, I hope it doesn't suck.
Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/05/12 12:22 AM

With all due respect BoNeato, I beg to differ. Eddie's punk son doesn't deserve this chance in such a major spotlight.

And, it was Anthony's vocals and stage presence that I was thinking of that will be missed. I hope this thing succeeds, and I'll most likely get to a show (unless the first reviews come in awful).

I can see if they want to get his son on stage here and there, but not for the the entire tour. Who knows, maybe Anthony wants no part of this. I haven't read anything from his perspective, so I don't know.

I don't think the kid deserves it either, but it is what it is. As far as I understand, it was Michael Anthony's choice not to be involved as he got close with Sammy over the years.

It's too bad. It will never be the same without him, and his missing vocals certainly are the wild card here. But I was weaned on early VH. Women and Children first was released my freshman year in high school, and I listened to them a ton. While I think Sammy is talented, for me no matter what they did, it was just never VH without DLR out front.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/05/12 12:43 AM

This is awful. Like Grandma limping along on life support for a couple years. Just pull the guitar plug already...

No BS, the worst concert I ever saw was DLR when he was solo with Steve Vai. I really only went for Vai, and wound up walking out on the show anyway. He sounded like crap that night, and the guy mixing the show didn't have a clue. Painful...

For me Van Halen died shortly after 1984. There were a bunch of good Van Hagar tunes, but it was never quite the same.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/05/12 01:58 AM

I have seen Van Halen quite a few times with the original line up. Sammy Hagar is a a douche. I don't care how many albums they sold under Van Hagar. The original was the best. They are gone, so lets get on with it. Lemmy will out live us all. Dave Grohl plays his ass off in this video.

New single released today. While I agree it's not the same without Anthony, things change and it is what it is I guess. I suppose if you are going to replace your bass player, you could do worse then having your kid follow in your footsteps. I'm not awful crazy for the chorus, but the band sounds pretty tight, Eddie's still got it, and Dave's still got a fetish for dressing like a pimp and waving big flags around. Sounds pretty decent overall I think. Glad to finally hear some new tunes from them, I've been waiting a looooong time for this.

Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Diagnosed with Lymphoma
By Alison Schwartz
Tuesday January 10, 2012

It was just two months ago that Black Sabbath announced plans to produce another studio album their first in 33 years.

But in the midst of recording sessions in Los Angeles, the heavy metal foursome had some serious news for fans this week: Guitar legend Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

The Iron Man is in the "early stages" of the disease, a cancer of the lymphocytes (white blood cells in the immune system), according to a statement on his website, and the band will continue working on the album (still set to be released in the fall) in England to accommodate Iommi.

The rocker, 63, is "upbeat and determined" to make a full recovery as he works with doctors to establish a treatment plan.

"[Iommi's] bandmates would like everyone to send positive vibes to the guitarist at this time," the statement continued.

Black Sabbath, including Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, is set to embark on a reunion tour May 18 featuring the original members, and more information will be released about Iommi's health as it becomes available, according to the statement.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/10/12 06:55 PM

Sounds like it was caught pretty early and hopefully he'll have a full recovery.

LOL. I'll give props to Motorhead.

I saw them once at Toad's Place in the 90s.

Lemmy came out at the start and said, "We're Motorhead and we're going to kick your f'n ass." And they went right into their first song. Great show!

It's tough, it's been so long and when you heard it you're looking to get blown away like the first time you heard Eruption. Solid tune, Diamond Dave still has his swagger, the band is tight and the sound is intact.

I'm very curious to hear the rest of the album. I heard on the radio they played a different new song at the club show in NYC and the commenter was surprised they didn't release that one first.
Posted by: Trooper_Bri

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/14/12 11:56 PM

Had a chance to listen to Tattoo more.
I definitely think they abuse the word tattoo in the song, but there's a real sweet spot in the song from 2:20 to 3:05 that shows there's some old Van Halen left. Sounds like Dave's having trouble with the high notes finally. But this song really didn't need em'.

Who knows. Maybe they released something closer to a B-side so they'll have more momentum and airplay down the road.
Either way, I'm a bit more optimistic the album may not suck.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/29/12 01:26 AM

Went to see Motorhead last night. The set was short, But great. The chase is better than the catch is one of my favorites and I would have gone just to hear that song. I have seen Lemmy a bunch of times. They should have been the headliner. Mickey Dee works like a maniac behind the drum kit. Volbeat is like Nickelback, All their crap sounds the same. I felt good because there were a lot of guys my age there, so I didn't feel like the old guy. I don't go to many shows now a days because the Tinnitus is so bad in my left ear. I bought an earplug kit that you mold plugs to fit your ear, Takes ten minutes for each ear to set. It's the best twenty bucks I ever spent. If it wasn't for the ear plugs I am sure the referee whistle that is in my ear 24-7 would be much worse right now. You still hear the sound, but without the damage (I think) The guy frisking at the entrance missed my flask of tequila and my Leatherman.
I guess I didn't look that dangerous.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 01/29/12 10:41 PM

Saw Gigantour last night in NYC. My take-- Lacuna Coil- hot chick with a great voice. Male singer destroys the vocals; overall, pretty boring live act. Not sorry the set was only 20 min. Volbeat, in my opinion, stole the show. I've been really looking fwd to seeing them. Great sound, amazing energy, 45 min was not enough. Very cool end of their set, as they had the crowd going nuts playing a Slayer riff-- I think Angel of Death, but don't hold me to it. This was my first time seeing Motorhead, and bottom line is that at this stage of their career, they are what the are. Lemmy tried to interact w the audience, but we couldn't understand a word he was saying. Ace of Spades and Overkill were really good, but a quick 40-min set was fine with me. All the respect in the world to Lemmy, but I wouldn't see him again. Megadeth closed with what I thought was a lackluster 75 min set. Not enough old stuff and overall, they def acted their age. Think this may be my last time for them too. Thinking back to all the times I'd seen them in the 90's, it's just not the same. Say what you want about Metallica and the directions they've gone in the last 15 yrs, but you'd be hard pressed to find someone who's seen them live and didn't love every second of it. Rock On!

She's the Woman is the only one from Firestarter I noticed off the bat on the new disc. But I don't blame them for reworking some of this stuff. Firestarter had some good stuff on it. Dunno if anything else was used and re-named.

Also heard the Stay Frosty tune, and either Outta Space or The Trouble with Never. I may have to buy it.

I have never met Maynard all of the times I have been back stage. Adam usually has his own room so we just hang in there and 99% of the time Dan and Justin come in but not Maynard.

Alot of them are re-done songs (or riffs, anyway) from that demo. In any event, the band sounds excellent and very tight. Guitar work is excellent. Alot of critics are trashing Dave for his "aging vocals" but Jesus Christ the guy is like 60 years old, of course he's not gonna sound like he did almost 30 years ago. Depends all on what you expected from them. If you wanted stuff with keyboards, ballads, along the Hagar vein you will be disappointed. If you wanted some good hard rock with a few new twists, I think they put out a very good album.
Having said that, and even though Eddie's kid does OK, I still think that Michael Anthony should be there.
Posted by: Trooper_Bri

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 02/16/12 01:56 AM

I've listened to the disc 4 or 5 times now.

The instrumentals are tight and sound awesome! It doesn't stray from the recipe, and it covers the old sounding VH stuff to the newer. If Eddie tried anything new, it was brief and un-noticed. Grade: A for diehards. B to B+ for those who expected something else.

David sounds fine if he stays away from the high notes.
I can only assume he's responsible for the lyrics in these songs. Some just have that weirdness in them I associate with his solo days. He's trying to pack too many words in at times and has to speed through parts. Grade: B+ for still having the capacity.

I like this disc more for the Eddie side than the Dave side. Songs like Tattoo sounds great, but the goofy lyrics cripple the song. Sounds Frosty gets good, but I have to listen to Dave go UH UH UH UHUH UHUH UH UH like a fire alarm buzzer first. There's 4 songs I'd flush just for these annoying traits.

Bottom line: It's definitely better than nothing, but it's nothing new.
Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 03/02/12 10:32 AM

Saw VH on Tuesday at MSG. Show was good. I give it a 6/10.

Eddie was spot on. He flawlessly executed every single song and note. I only wish the volume was cranked a little higher. I wanted my ears to be ringing.

Alex was solid.

David Lee did the job. But he had a special section of hard wood floor set up at the front of the stage so he could slip and slide all around. It was silly. Before the show, they lubed it up with some kind of powder. All I could think of was that sliding/bowling game you see in bars.

Musically, Wolfgang did what he needed to do. But, he looked out of place with the other legends on the stage. For a kid his age, he should be sporting long hair and acting like a maniac. He looks like a lazy old man on stage.

With no Michael Anthony, you feel its just not the complete package.

Set list was solid, but of course, you always want more. I feel they should have done three or four more songs. I didnt like them closing with Jump, but I knew it was coming, as I read the review of their Chicago show a few days ago.

Bottom line: I checked off one seeing one of my favorites in action. I never saw VH with David Lee before.

Had some more friends go see their 2nd show last night at MSG.

This is WAY outside the heavy metal genre, but too interesting to ignore.

This could possibly pave the way for other "reunions" assuming everyone has their price. Who wants to see Pantera with Dimebag Darrell back on guitar? Or Jimi Hendrix?

He can definitely shred. I do enjoy a few of his instrumentals. I saw him live at the legendary L'Amour club in Brooklyn. Pretty good show.

But the guy could never write any really good songs, and his vocalists have been pretty cheesy. In short, he never could put it all together like Van Halen did.

Two of my favorite instrumentals of his

I agree. Saw them open for Skid Row back in (I think) 90 or 91. They kicked arse.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 04/21/12 11:37 PM

No doubt about it, Yngwie should never sing. Ever. Same goes for a lot of other great guitar players.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 04/24/12 11:57 PM

I actually saw that Pantera/Skid Row show too. I think it was like in a parking lot at one of the larger stadiums.

First time I saw them was when they opened for Exodus and Suicidal at the Ritz. They came on early--like 745 and killed it. I was sold as soon as I heard "This Love" and "Walk." AWESOME!!!! Not a fan of the later stuff, but Cowboys and Vulgar are two of the best metal albums ever.

That's too bad. Eddie and the instrumentals sounded so good on the new disc, even if it was familiar territory. If it's Dave being the idiot (again), shank him and toss him in the Pacific Ocean.

After a friend sent me a link last week, I'm currently hooked on mashups. Some are better than others, but it sure makes listening to old familiar tunes fun again. My fav so far: Whole Lotta Sabbath.

No need to worry Mitch! As you know I have posted on Scarlet Fade. They are a young and hungry band that has lost its baby fat. They are now lean and mean and full of talent. So long Met . Time to move on.
The best is yet to come! P.S. after sandman it all went down hill. Im surprised you hung on this long. Same with Linkin Park ! The first two CDs rocked then minutes to midnight came. Man it sucked. They say they are trying to take a different direction. That says to me they can't put out, and it shows no doubt. They are taking the U-2 direction and man have they ( U-2)

was good from Linkin Park and then they fizzled on "minutes to midnight". It really sucked. He was the only one I could think of that would come closest to Layne Staleys talents
in belting out a song! He was very gifted. The only one that I can think of that has the capabilities is that of Axls . Just my opinion.

I doubt anyone on here has ever heard of them, but they put out some classic American metal and got big in Europe. A lot of their stuff is on YouTube, including some shows I attended back in the 80s.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liege_Lord

Unfortunately they are not with their original singer who was on their first two albums and they're playing without one original guitarist (who is a Grammy winner) for this gig, but it should still be a good one.

If you're in the Stamford area, come down and check them out next Tuesday. It should be a killer show in a small bar.

Anyone can growl and pretend to be a demon. I mean those vocals are so old and past their prime and so Rob Zombiesh. And the guitar solo 2/3rds into the song just really sucked. But that's Just my opinion. Interesting all the same thanks for sharing! That's my final American idol judgement smile1 thumbs down for me. I'm looking for raw down and dirty talent.

And he /Ace follows up with a great solo! No one could match him in that moment in time. Just my opinion. These two really make a Les Paul sing and scream . We are fortunate to have such talented musicians.

So how was the show Mitch?? I saw them twice, once when they were deceiver and then with 'anthrax' maybe.?? They opened for somebody but it was a long time ago. My buddies were big metal heads and we would go anywhere anytime. I was more of a hard rock guy but started getting into metal more in my 30's.. I think they even did some ac/dc covers in there early years.

Joe, great to see someone actually heard of these guys! They mainly played down here in SW CT, so I really didn't think anyone would have heard of them.

The show was very cool. It brought back a lot of great memories. I went with three high school buddies and a guy from work. I ran into a few people as well.

The show was solid. However, I really like the original singer Andy Michaud. He's a great singer and showman. Also missing was one of the original guitarists, Paul Nelson, who is also a great showman. Regardless, it was still cool to see one founding guitarist and bassist still rocking.

On a side note, I drank wayyyyy to much that night and paid the price the next day.

Here is a clip from the night:

I agreee... It was not the early stuff... But a kick butt song....not sure how you could not like it??.

R.I.P. Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman.

http://www.kerrang.com/blog/2013/05/slayers_jeff_hanneman_1964_-_2.html

Truly one of heavy metal's greatest guitarists.

Saw Slayer quite a few times. One of their shows at the old L'Amour club in Brooklyn, NY stands out as one of my favorite live shows ever.

Perhaps the best metal song of all time:

JoeG,
I saw Leige Lord a few times in the 80's, but alot of my music memories are now a blur, blur back then too! Knew John who played (guitar??) dated an old girl friend of mine. My very good metal chick friends Lori and Linda (norwalk metalheads) talked about them and I saw them when they did the CT. circuit. I saw John five years back again at Lori's party at a rented for the evening Norwalk bar where a few bands played for us metal old timers...
If you were out in the metal scene during the 80's you'll know me and my "group", I knew the Hartford/Bridgeport/New Haven crowds, mostly Females of course! Wags

Got a free album on MP3. I picked Black Rises From Blue. Love Alice in Chains.
And got $35 in Live Nation cash. Just ordered the new Black Sabbath 13 deluxe set and t-shirt fo' free. Should be here Friday.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/13/13 08:29 PM

Had a chance to listen to the new Black Sabbath a few times now. Got the deluxe set so I have the 2'nd disc with 3 extra tunes. Only 8 tunes on Thirteen, but the shortest tune is 4:37, and 5 are over 7 minutes. Just over an hour between both discs.

Without doing research, I wonder if some of these are tunes that BS sat on for years like Van Halen did for their recent release.
There's nothing hardcore about the disc(s) really, just good middle of the road stuff that reminds me of their early work. Track #4, Zeitgeist, is my favorite so far. Old school stuff that required digging out some tube/flange effects. Tasty.
Plenty of instrumental work between vocal parts on some tunes, which stretches God is Dead? to almost 9 minutes.

This one was on my radar, and glad I picked it up. Freekin' old farts sound pretty good still. If you told me back in the 80's that Sabbath would still be functioning in 2013, I'd have slapped the folding sunglasses off your Member's Only jacket wearing a$$.

I had a great time seeing Slayer with an old college buddy at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell on Saturday night. This was the last stop on Slayer's current tour, and who knows if it will be their last tour?

Cool to see young and old in the pit, which was pretty good. There were no fights. One dude in a wheelchair was crowd surfing, which was cool to see. Even the singer took notice. I helped hoist the guy up once.

You're only as old as you feel. I spent the night in the pit. Good cardio. biggrin Here's a vid I took. It was the second to last song, so everyone was pretty wiped by then, but still going! rawk



Damn good set list of old school classics:

Necrophiliac
Mandatory Suicide
Captor of Sin
War Ensemble
Postmortem
Altar of Sacrifice
Jesus Saves
At Dawn They Sleep
Die by the Sword

Yeah... Awesome show. nice to see a long time member step up to frontman. Sounded like they always have. They played a few songs from Carnival of Chaos.. My favorite album. saw gwar for the first time in the late 90's. I was way more limber them. After three songs the pit got the best of me and had to watch from the sidelines... After losing my shoe haha. Woke up the next day sore on every part of my body. Getting too old for this. Then after a shower before work, went through a dozen q tips trying to get the fake blood from my ears.. I think it was my 6th time seeing them. A lot less theatrics than in the past which I missed.. But all in all I'm happy I went.

Not laughing here (44 as well). Even though I like a lot of heavy stuff, I still enjoy a lot of the 80s bands. Dokken and Ratt put out great music! Although bands like Motley Crue and Poison got more attention. The first CD I ever owned was Cinderella Night Songs.

I remember one day when Vic was teaching me the intro to The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" I started to pick the strings wrong and discovered that it was almost the same chord structure to Ten Years After's "I'd Love to Change the World" and we both said.. Well, how about that?

Ha-Ha, boy those were the days!!! Jamming in the basement of Vic's parents' house in Plainville,Vic/guitar, my cousin Mark/guitar,Jeff W./guitar, Rich S./bass, John P./drums (me/guitar, (when they'd let me play) HA-HA) along with quarts of beer... life was fun.

I still have Fates Warnings first vinyl LP "Night on Brcken" somewhere buried in my closet along with all my guitars, & amp, etc...

Thank you Mitch for posting that about the new album. You have brought up some fond memories of "In the days of my youth"!!!

Saw Guns N' Roses yesterday at Metlife Stadium for the "Not in This Lifetime" tour. They put on a heck of a show, especially in this heat. It was Slash's birthday, and he was on fire.

They're going to do it all over again tonight.

They certainly aren't jipping fans with this tour. The set list and length is just awesome. They played for almost 3 hours.

I saw them back in the day, but it was great to share the experience with the wife and some friends who have never seen them, including a great pre-game tail gate!

Yesterday's show ranks up in their in my top 10, and I've seen quite a few.

My buddy saw G & R at Gillette last week, said they were awesome. I remember seeing them with Metallica and Faith no More about 25 years ago, they sounded like sh*t. Metallica blew them off the stage. But I guess this latest version is pretty good from what I hear.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 08/20/16 11:08 PM

I did not know the album would be that long, but I'm psyched. Death Magnetic is tremendous. This song is solid, and they are saying that this album really gets back to their roots. I can't stomach St. Anger. It is a total train wreck, as was Reload. I'm praying this is as good as DM, as I don't think they have too many albums left in them. Truly one of the greatest bands ever, and hands down my favorite for the past 30 years. Hard to believe they've been making music for 35 years and are still going heavy! Rock on!!

PS Listening to the Pandora stream of their live show from the new Metrodome as I type this. They are amazing live. Can't wait to see them again.

Veteran thrashers Testament just came out with their 11th album the other week, Brotherhood of the Snake. Definitely check it out. They've been cranking out solid thrash metal since 1983 and don't get the attention they deserve. While Metallica is always good live, they are simply not as heavy as they used to be. Testament reigns!

This is my favorite track so far ...

Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/16/16 07:29 PM

Metallica has been releasing a video for every song off the upcoming new album throughout today on their website.

This one is pretty solid.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/17/16 10:03 AM

The album is available for listening on Metallica's website. Gotta admit - I'm disappointed. After their last album, I was hoping for more. Hopefully it grows on me.
Posted by: Mitch P.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 11/17/16 10:45 AM

I was following along on their website yesterday as they released each vid. I listened to all of the songs. There is definitely some good stuff there. And, the videos are pretty cool.

We're just not going to get "old" Metallica with their new stuff. I get and accept that. I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of this album, but it doesn't get me fired up. If you like thrash metal, definitely check out the new Testament album. It crushes Metallica.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 05/15/17 01:18 PM

Saw Metallica yesterday at Metlife. Really solid show. They still got it.

They did a cool Orion right into Whiplash.

Also epic was Fight Fire with Fire. In the intro, I thought they were doing Battery (which has been on their set list recently), and totally did not expect Fight Fire with Fire. Awesome!

Only criticism would be closing with Sandman. I'd like something else, But overall, a really great show.

Full set list

They're also playing Long Island this Wednesday and Foxborough on Friday. Definitely see them if you can.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 05/31/18 10:04 PM

That's pretty funny. On a slightly different musical level, my buddy and I and our wives went to the Newport folk fest about 30 yrs ago on a hot day and decided to go for a swim. While we were in the water, they made an announcement that anyone caught swimming would be arrested and the cops made a sweep of the beach. We were both strong swimmers so we decided F that and swam out about a half mile to the boats that were all anchored listening to the show. We swam up to a sporty and told them what was going on and they invited us onboard and we partied with them for an hour or so til the cops left.

At 2:57 time in this video, that was where my seat/view of the stage was.

Yeah, pretty crazy what they put together with Trans-Siberian Orchestra. They've had a ton of musicians come in and out, but it started with the Savatage guys.

I've still yet to see a performance. You?

Not bad. Way better than a recent clip I saw of him with his band doing Queensryche songs. He wasn't bad, but the band was god-awful.

That is a good place to see a show.

There is a hotel near there if you don't want to deal with driving home (Hilton Garden Inn Worcester, 35 Major Taylor Blvd.)

I,m guessin but you guys know Dave Mustaine has some type of throat cancer.Mitch,are you aware of this.?we should all pray on his behalf...dude is a badass.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 07/08/19 11:25 AM

Yeah, Mustaine is a thrash metal veteran, including being an original member of Metallica. Hopefully he makes a full recovery.

The absolute best female voice in heavy metal today, maybe even best overall right now. Unreal the power and range this girl has!

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 07/12/19 01:48 PM

Her covering Queensryche like no one has...

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 07/12/19 08:35 PM

She's actually real good, even in that live video. I'm no huge fan of what I call "castle metal" bands, but she nailed that queensryche tune. RJD would approve. I used to have to parody that stuff, and then sing full time for a GnR cover band. Easier for a woman, lemme tell ya, but still not easy.

Good clip! Glad I listened.

Re: The Heavy Metal Thread - 07/12/19 08:44 PM

Wait? Axl fronted ACDC....?

WAIT? He was amazing at it!?!?!? Holy cow I just saw some vids of it.... he was flawless. Like Adam fronting for queen.... made for it.

Man, music is the next best thing to fishing.
