ie. opinions that many would disagree with. (stolen from the braveboard forum)

-there's nothing wrong with elitism
-Opeth are extremely overrated, boring, and not death metal. Also, Mikael is a weak vocalist, both in his growls and clean vocals.
-so are Iron Maiden and Judas Priest
-technical death metal sucks
-melodical death metal sucks also
-Carcass went downhill fast after Symphonies of Sickness
-Death after Spiritual Healing is boring and processed sounding

Keep the flaming low since obviously the point is to post opinions that few agree with.

-Elitism sucks, but can sometimes be justified to get a point across.

-Opeth is overrated, but they're too good to even care.

-I hardly hear any talk about Iron Maiden or Judas Priests

-Tech Death > all

-Melo Death > all

-Never cared for Carcass

-I kind of agree lol.

Thrash deserves to be a genre.

1. there are way too many sub-genres.
2. Iron Maiden doesn't get enough respect.
3. Not being able to make out what the vocalist is saying does indeed take a lot away from a song.

That's all I can think of right now.

-brutal death metal is filled with bands that all sound exactly alike

-melodic death metal is unbearably boring

-Power metal sucks hard

-black metal is polluted with tons crappy bands...there are some intensely amazing bands in the genre, but a lot of it is recycled garbage

-Iron Maiden sucks

-Mayhem sucks ass

-Darkthrone sucks dick

-Deicide sucks hermaphrodite genitalia

That's all I can think of right now...

I disagree. One thing that's weird about metal (compared with almost all genres) is the incredible range of its overall sound--what is the common core shared by Dream Theater and Marduk?

Trying to think of controversial opinions....
-Opeth's acoustic stuff is pure suck
-Old Megadeth is better than old Metallica

...more may come to me

I can agree with most of those. Except the Deicide one. Their first few are good.

Nile can be a little boring. But I them, almost all of the time.

Oh yeah...and I find Meshuggah the most mind-bendingly, spine-tinglingly monotonous band ever.

King Diamond blows...Mastodon blows...Trivium blows...Anthrax sucked and should be removed from the Big Four. The Big Four should be made the Barely Three, because Mustaine's vocals ruined Megadeth for me, Slayer wrote the same song over and over and Metallica only thrashed about a third of the time.

Oh and power metal kicks ass...
#19
There's some more...Mastodon does indeed suck. Anthrax also sucks, as does King Diamond. (falsetto makes my balls retract into fetal position)

Although Slayer pwns...haaaaaaard.

Megadeth, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, and Alice in Chains. I hate them and think they blow and I don't see what you all see in them. Also, I hate crappy sounding black metal. I don't care how gr1m it is damnit, I want music.


And I DETEST King Diamond, especially after that idiot Kris Sobanski said he was gonna get King Diamond to ruin my music career and destroy my band.

If Mustaine wasn't the lead vocalist, it wouldn't be Megadeth at all.

You just love his style or hate it.

And Dragonforce sucks terribly. I know that isn't exactly controversial around here...but in teh real world, evaryone loves them.

I hate it. Therefore, Megadeth sucks. I'm being elitist because I'm a metalhead, and that's what I'm supposed to do.

Just because most of the time Alice in Chains played with metal bands doesn't make them one.

This thread has turned from a good, but worn out topic, to a "I don't like bands this this and this" thread. Come on people.

-Good Production is NOT a crime in metal
-It is okay to be original in metal
-There are more scales than pentatonic and more modes than Phyrgian or Aeolian
-You can play in a major key and it can still be metal
-You can't tell the difference between the drummers
-The creativity is absent in most metal genre
Quote by BigRudy
I disagree Slipknot is more technical than Necrophagist and more brutal than Suffocation, that's why I do hardcore dances to it with my 14 year old friends.
