Metal today. I personally think its at the best is has been in a long ass time. Look at some of the killer bands out there, System, Disturbed, Zombie etc.
Zombie and Distrubed both had debut number 1 albums! for metal thats really good. I hear a lot of people whining about how it sucks though so im interested in hearing what you guys think.

those bands aren't really metal all though I'm not a genre freak and couldn't really tell exactly what they, are nu-metal perhaps?

Lol. You fucking, fucking retard. Too bad what you mentioned is in fact not metal. Get your ass out of the metal forum and take it the NuMetal / Hardcore forums.

But, if you are talking about real metal such as Opeth, or Cryptopsy, or Wintersun, then yes, there is a lot of modern metal that I do love as much and sometimes more than their predecessors.

Bands threadstarter listed = not metal

But real metal, I think it's going pretty well nowadays. Dream Theater, Opeth, Epica, Symphony X, DragonForce...Iron Maiden's coming out with a new album, too.

I used to think that good music had completely disappeared at the beginning of the 90's, but lately I discovered that good music isn't dead - it's just hiding from the public eye.

As far as metal, in the traditional sence goes, there's is, and always has been, a niché for it. But you the 'metal' bands you get in the mainstream arn't the traditional metal I speak of. They cover all of those crossbreed styles that I chose to ignore, mainly because there are too many of them and they seem to very non-specific.

Having said that, metal is far from dead. And it never will be. Just like rock 'n roll baby!

Damn devil music.
books have knowledge, knowledge is power, power corrupts, corruption is a crime, and crime doesn't pay..so if you keep reading, you'll go broke.

*waits for Morb to come in and pwn celticknife with long, elaborate speech on how aussies are genetically better than NZ'ers and how it all goes back to the Eureka-stockade and how NZ'ers are more related to the man-like monkeys like niggers and aborigins and hence it was just a stroke of luck and that rugby matters not at all anyway*

Instead of arguing Dwain will just pull out the New Zealander distraction kit which contains:
