Honestly I dont understand some of you people.
You bash bands lyrics, stage show, outfits, and make up, relentlessly.
Man I understand some stuff is infact cheesy, (manowar and there loin cloths lol)
but like man stage back drops and props are their for entertainment.
There is more to going to a show to hear the music, you can listen to music at your house or in your car all you want. You go there to be entertained and enjoy what the band has to offer. So next time before you get your cheesy bashing ready take a look around and take in the atmosphere the band is trying to create with thier costumes and stage props and all that other jazz that they buy to make thier shows better.


Also there is only one true cheesy band and the names Gwar

^^^^ Does not mean i like gwar (lol ew)

Gwar isn't cheesy, I'm not a fan of their music, but they mutilated a likeness of paris hilton on stage... I'f that's not the definition of bad ass I don't know what is, maybe a gimick but still bad ass.

Hmm, when I read between the original post's lines I get:

What I don't like about Gwar is that their music sucks, it's not the costumes. The costumes are pretty sweet but if they spent less time dealing with their stage get-ups and more time on the actual music I'm sure they'd be more enjoyable.
Power metal is sweet though, who wouldn't love some dragon slaying knights in actual armour? You'd have to be crazy not to.

Nobody is complaining about the presence of stage props, just the amount (or manner) of them.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

What are you talking about?

Have you ever read these forums?

I don't recall anyone really making fun of cheesy shit (well, in large numbers).

I think he probably read Plus_the_Bear's comment on Dragonforce or something.

Whatever, UG metalheads are more open-minded than most UGers will give them credit for. They're not automatically going to ridicule anything that isn't tr00.

I think it has changed a bit over time...

Partly because of this new UG policy and partly because of the departure of *ahem* "certain" members...

I don't think it can ever be too cheesy in terms of fantasy, I love complicated vocalbulary and vivid storytelling, hence my recent Opeth obsession .

Violence and death, however, can suck my balls, unless it's in a Tolkien-esque setting.

2? If he joined in 03...and it's 07...somebody's math is wrong.

Anyways, this thread is so gay, it might be a Gwar concert. :P:

Kidding, but this thread sucks. Shut up.

^^, what are you talking about? 2007-2005=2, in my world at least.


I have yet to dislike a band because of cheesiness anyways. Even if its silly, I would rather enjoy then not enjoy cheesy music.

Haha, I remember the time where all the metal forum was was flamming (Hypocrisy, Spynal...).

As for this thread, ....who cares if people think a band you like is cheesy? you losin' any sleep there?
I'm entitled to double post, so fück off!!!

Cheesiness is what makes metal awesome!! Just look at Dream Evil. Their lyrics are about how awesome and badass Metal is and it's some of the best shit I've ever heard! It's all about having fun and I think the cheesiness helps bring it out.

cheesiness is what makes metal awesome makes it sound as if metal would be nothing without it which i disagree with but i definitely still love the cheese
