Most traditional death metal and pretty much all of black metal is crap.

I still believe that Slash is a kick ass guitarist, especially recently, his playing (at least live) has been phenomenal, a lot more technical and less sloppy than I remember it.

I prefer the second 2 of the Slipknot albums (Vol.3 and AHIG) as opposed to the apparently godlike first 2 (self-titled and Iowa)

A good riff or a groove triumphs over technicality and wankery any day but the fusion of both can be really awesome.

Shredding is not soulless and emotionless because it fulfils an emotion/emotions for the player, i'm sure Steve Vai, Yngwie, Buckethead, Michael Angelo, all those kinds of instrumental virtuoso players genuinely love what they're doing.

Djent IS a genre of music whether you like it or not (it's also a playing style, a style of guitar tone and onomatopoeia)

Chopin is a piece of shit (but you guys already knew that lolz). In fact I can't think of a single Polish tonal composer who didn't have horrendous taste.

Absolute music (music emphasizing form and logical development) >>>>>>>>>>>>>> programmatic music (music used to tell a specific story or imagery), which is mostly insincere crap by people who fail to realize that music at its best expresses the abstract.

This too, actually.

People have a bash at slipknot or deathcore for playing 1's and 0's on the fretboard...

..they aint got shit on old school death metal. You're lucky to hear a solo that's a coherent sequence of notes as well, as most of it is chromatic shred + wah and whammy bars.

Last one, I dont like Dream Theater, but not for those reasons. I dont like them because it takes forever for their songs to sound good. Everything else is 70's bluesy-prog rock riffs up until the bridge, where they just pile on everything in one go.


I think he has a bunch of good songs e.g. heaven and hell for example is a a masterpiece imo and his vocals are perfect for it. that said though, alot of his songs sound the same and his lyrics can be really cheesy sometimes. He was a good vocalist though no doubt that and he inspired a loads of other vocalists too I just don't see how he can be considered THE best.
true, I hate how when Petrucci plays a cool riff he forgets about it and plays something else instead of developing the riff and repeating it, and the tendency of being complex just for the sake of being complex the band has

I have no idea why, but mentioning that seems to upset people more than it really should.

Didn't we make this thread before and it just turned into a flamefest?

I like Ke$ha, her music is catchy and fun to listen to.

Progressive/Technical metal bands are really boring.

Limp Bizkit is fun to listen to and Wes Borland is a great guitarist.

Disagree with the other two, but this.

+1 melodeath is pretty cool though I'm not a fan of death metal/black metal vocals in general
