this thread is sort of metal therapy. check it out, say a band you don't like and then the next person should "perscribe" either a cd or song that they think would make them change their mind.

i could never get into:

carcass
strapping young lad
#3
For Carcass, check out anything on the Heartwork album, its not as brutal as previous works, sort of gently eases you into them
#4
Opeth.
I can't find any good songs by them.
Its either like some slow acoustic that is completely unneccesary.
Or I've listened to songs where its distortion but its got no good riffs in there.
Everything that ive listened to them is just plain and nothing new.
Also theyre songs are like 8 minutes long so its hard to find a good one.
But yeah, I wanna get into them, I mean they must have something good if everyone loves them so much.
#6
I second Strapping Young Lad, I just dont get whats so great about them.
Old IN Flames is a hit or miss for me, some people love it.

Anyway, I don't think I could ever like Bodom, just because I hate alexi's voice.

morbid angel- get the song "where the slime live." also, altars of madness of covenant is a good starting spot

symphony x- really..anything. just listen to a lot of it. i know this is true for a lot of bands, but this one in particular. if it is the vocals you can't take, i swear, with time, you'll begin to realize they fit well. people make the same argument for jame l'cun
ty man of dream theatre, but i don't believe that tripe for one second.

Sea of lies, egypt, odyssey.......really anything by them

I don't see how you can call Opeth "plain and nothing new" when there are approximately zero bands that sound like them. Also, how can you call the acoustic stuff "unneccesary?" That's one of the big elements of their sound. Taking it away would be like taking the blast beats out of Nile or the Christian-hating out of Deicide.

For songs, try Bleak, Demon of the Fall, The Funeral Portrait, and Deliverance.

Children of Bodom...they're really only popular 'cause they wear makeup
lets see...Sleep Terror. I like some songs, but I hate the jazzy moments sometimes.
Opeth...gay, just really gay.

Obituary
Cannibal Corpse
Dying Fetus
Anthrax

I dont know what it is about those bands, its just everytime I listen to them I get bored.
#27
Suffocation. Booooring.
The Jester Race/Whoracle.
Anthrax.

Oh and Iron Maiden. But I don't think I "should" like them, because they're ****ing terrible.

I'd have to second the Jester Race, I just don't see what the big deal is.

Meshuggah.

Obituary. I love every other death metal band from Florida but I just can't see what's so great about these guys.

I concur with FaceTheSlayer about Obituary. I bought Slowly We Rot and was very disappointed. Suffocation also kinda bores me I do like a few songs though. Symphony X also kinda puts me off Im not sure what it is about them.

OK it took me a while, but I see why you guys like 'em so much.
I listened to Bleak and just went alright fine.
Then Demon of the Fall i didnt even want to sit through.
The Funeral Portait was cute. Little acoustic and then the distortion, nice and cute.
Then Deliverance just sounded like everything else.
They're tight I guess. I probably have to listen to some more songs all the way through to appreciate 'em more.
Its kinda hard to listen to them all the way through because its just the same thing for about a minute or two and then they'll transistion into something new.
Its just really hard to get attached to that.

You're all assholes, and homosexuals.

It's not my fault I can't get into homoerotic bands such as Opeth and CoB.

Read the thread title you ass*****s.

The title reads. "bands you know you should like, but you don't"
Then the threadstarter goes on to say to prescribe songs / cds.

I see you've contributed to this cause by flaming everyone that appreciates good music.
Just because you can't realize why someone likes that music, doesn't give you the right to flame them. This forum is the people who acknowledge a certain band can help you understand why they like it, not to bash on bands.
