Hey UG,

Too lazy to use that damn searchbar, forgive me if there's already a thread like this.

OT, who do YOU consider the coolest guy in metal? And with coolest I mean 'nicest, funniest, most interesting etc' not the guy that looks best

I'd have to go for Mikael Stanne of Dark Tranquillity.
Current gear:
Carvin CT6M
TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion

Mikael Akerfeldt. Damn, where's that shut the **** up pic when you need it?

Maybe Euro was an ass, but he made good music. I would have loved his new music for sure.
Also, if Varg didn´t kill him, he too could still be able to make quality music.
So, if Varg didn´t kill him, we´d have 2 damn good Black Metal musicians still writing.

As I said before, He could make better music if he had instruments.
He only has a synth in prison..barbarians..

By the way, calling me a poser is fine, but you are just as much of a poser. I bet you´re really trv grymm and nekr0 because you don´t like Mayhem...XD
Grow up my friend, grow up. You´re from New York. BM is European. It should´ve stayed underground...

Dude, I'm trolling, I thought that would obvious enough, especially when I posted Paul Ledney and Seth Putnam here. Besides, I don't see how BM is necessarily European, several American bands were very important to the development of Black Metal and a lot of the best BM bands aren't European.

EDIT: And I love Mayhem, Deathcrush is one of the greatest BM releases of all time.

Deathcrush indeed was one of the best. Though I think In The Nightside Eclipse was awesome aswell. By the way, look up Blackdoor Miracle by Ragnarök (if you haven't already). It's quite good.

The reason why I said that was because I am yet to see an American BM band BETTER than a Norwegian one.

Those are the prime cuts. There's also Ihsahn, Fenriz, Corpsegrinder, Dead on the Dawn of the Black Hearts cover (ololol), and I'll think of some more badasses later.

The ULTIMATE rock badass, however, is not in Metal. He is none other than...

Then you've listened to barely any Black Metal. BM didn't even start in Norway, it started from several bands in different parts of the world. And yes, Ragnarok are a good band.

I'd say Venom are more Speed Metal/Thrash... But, who's to say what Black Metal is supposed to sound like? If anything, shouldn't it be the people who started the term? Regardless, Venom kick genocidal amounts of ass (or the first three albums, at any rate).
