Seriously, my friend will say "dude! Listen to this song, it sounds so cool!" he'll show me fifty songs and I'll wander "is this a very long song or is it different songs?" because they all sound the same!!!

Its all about Metallica, Megadeth, Pantara, Slayer, Iron Maiden, and all the classic metal that counts.

At least they don't steal music from black blues musicians....


EDIT: This band called Death. They will utterly pwn any and all of the bands you have listed.

Or at least would have.

Oh my god, I KNOW! Why can't they all write stuff like Pantera's Angel Of Death? Honestly, that whole album, plus Slayer's Master Of Puppets is the best thing ever!

At least Zeppelin sings, and their guitars actually require skills, and you can differentiate their songs.

Also, Zeppelin only covered four other songs, and they admitted to covering them. They never said they made them up.

You are wrong i nall respects.

they admitted to covering four songs, which is fine, everybody does a cover once in a while.

They took traditional blues pieces and called them their own. That is plagiarism and stealing

You don't know what singing is.

sing: to produce musical tones by means of the voice b : to utter words in musical tones and with musical inflections and modulations c : to deliver songs as a trained or professional singer


while harsh, death metal has singing which is focused on low, guttural noises done in a musical matter by varying in pitch, timbre and tone.


Jimmy Page, as great as he is, would fail in respects of tone and speed to most death metal guitarists. Listen to "Lack of Comprehension" by Death, and it's solo is much better than anything by Page.


You can't differentiate the songs because you aren't paying enough attention.

just because guitar in death metal requires faster playing doesnt make it better, what it comes down to is how good the song sounds

i dont like death metal but i dont wanna add to this flame war so, i'll say this: people have different musical tastes

EDIT: to the guy above me, that thing you said about zeppelin passing bluse songs off as their own, there's songs in blues called blues standards that have been covered so many times no one knows who orgiginaly wrote them

Looks like Mr.Zeppelin will think twice before questioning death metal :O

Seriously though, he got banned fast, did he troll around any other forums or something?

The technicality in death metal is unrivaled by most other genres, which was the main argument presented by TS "lack of skill" in death metal.


Whether you like simple pop songs more, to deny the fact that death metal is technically much more advanced and requires much more skill is simply naive.

Not saying one is better, just saying one is more complex.

hahahahahahaha this made me laugh and extremely pissed at the same time. theyre not talking about damn covers first of all, second, led zeppelin is MUCH MUCH easier to play than Death. trust me i know. im a fan of both and have learned songs by both. metal almost the genre as a whole is one of the hardest genres to play. classic rock/blues is easy. thats why everyone starts out playing blues and classic rock generally. also, singing is neither a plus or negative as a standard. you cant say oh well this band is better because they sing. thats like saying this footbal team/company etc is better because theyre logo has red in it or something.

why cant people be universally accepting and open minded? all these flame wars get started by these kinds of posts, made by ignorant people. just shut up and enjoy your music. if you dont like it, dont listen to it, and dont talk ****. we dont want you to like death metal if youre gonna be a douche about music. we have plenty of other fans of death metal anyway.


btw imo, those posts about master of puppets by megadeth etc, i second those because damn thrash is friggin repetetive. ESPECIALLY the bland generic bands you listed. i mean dont get me wrong i like my thrash from time to time but most songs are chug chug chug ride the low e string scooped mids etc. IMO.
