It takes a Wonder Woman to have a child... you will never see Superman do that!
Oddly, I think the same but in reverse. I prefer God Hates Us All because it's heavier, angrier and more distorted. It's their signature sound and they push it to its extremes without experimenting much. I agree on Slayer's kinda immobile sound. You could say the same about other old bands like Motorhead. If I want a larger-than-life experience I often turn to Strapping Young Lad instead.God hates Us ALl was really kind of horrible....totally uninspired, by-the-numbers slayer album.
Not saying christ illusion is much better, but its certainly better than GHUA....I doint think slayers recorded an album thats added anything contructive to their repetoire since diabolus in musica, which has been almost 10 years now.
song of the moment: "sao paulo" ~ the deadstring brothers
Still, I can forgive them one horribly bad album. Hell, I've been a Metallica fan so long (18+ years) that I'd probably forgive them another bad album too, but man, it'd be really heartbreaking...
Howya: I'm sure you haven't heard this yet, but you look like Edward Norton from American History X in that avatar pic dude.

I don't even think St. Anger was a terrible album... just poorly handled. Where the Black album was near perfect presentation of mediocre to really good material, St. Anger is pitiful presentation of decent - pretty good material, so the end results are vastly different. Justice was pitiful presentation of INCREDIBLE material and withstands shoddy production. :) Still, it's not the snare that bothers me on St. Anger, it's the cymbal bleed...aaarrrgghh, just that generic, awful ambient TSSSHHHH in EVERYTHING. It almost ruins The Unnamed Feeling for me...almost.
Also, one thing I must say that amuses me... off all the threads I post in on the internet forums, the heavy metal thread here is by far the most civil, polite and genuinely friendly thread I've had the pleasure of posting in. Who'd a thought that? So much for all those crazy heavy metal guys. :p
lol, but I'm glad to be able to discuss my metal in a civil manner.
It seems Metallica is beginning to work their way back in the good graces of the metal community as it were. I have high expectations of them now that they have crawled out from underneath the HORRIBLE Bob Rock.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I LIKE the civility. It's just pleasantly surprising. :)
Anybody ever get into Infectious Grooves? One of Robert Trujillo's older projects. Think funk, punk, metal and ridiculous humor rolled into one. Great stuff.
Yeah I listened to Suicidal Tendencies back in the day. Good band, Trujillo is the shit. I hope he actually gets to show more of his skill on the next album.
I think it's fitting that my main memory of the whole thing was walking into the club and immediately feeling Rob's low, guttural bass just resonate through my chest....man, he is a monster on the bass, I can't tell you how satisfied I was when he was chosen for the band. They really did knock it out of the park with him.
Does it seem to anyone else like Rob's actually been their bass player for a lot longer than he really has? No disrespect to jason (whom I'm a huge fan of as well), but I actually think Rob may be a better fit for the band than he ever was...
When I heard Rob pull off Cliff's bass solo in Orion, as they were playing Master in it's entirety on the summer tour last year, my jaw just dropped...
I never heard Jason play anything like that.
When we disagree with each other, we actually give sound reasons why (who'da thunk it?), and even better yet, we dont allude that other people are idiots for not sharing our opinions.....that's all it really takes to keep a civil discussion going; mutual respect.
Having read all of the Megadeth posts, I am reminded that (a) I looooved Rust in Peace way back when, and that (b) it still holds up even if Dave can't really sing, and (c) I hated Youthanasia. I liked the three records leading up to RIP but after Youthanasia I stopped really listening.
But Rust in Peace is still a great speedmetal album.

I find it hard to decide on best Megadeth albums, since Rust, Peace, Cryptic and Countdown all have good things going for them (Peace edges it out, though). Youthanasia and System are a little behind of them, and from there it's Hero, which I don't hate but it's nothing spectacular. Haven't heard Risk (don't intend to) or the debut.
The Unnamed Feeling is one of Metallica's best songs. Period.
