Pretty simple. Post bands that you think are really musically talented, but you just can't stand their stuff.

For me, I'd have to say Dragonforce.

All bands are talented. Just simply "To what degree". If I had to give the name of a band that is more talented than the generality of a genre that I can't stand...I guess Metal musicians. They are talented, but I simply hate the genre.

Most bands with above-average technical ability. I like slightly out-of-tune chords and vocals that are a smidge off-key.
Listen to mah discs.

They might have talent but I just think they are trying so damn hard to sound hard and metal that they become a living joke.

Dragonforce, maybe. I just can't tell if Herman Li is good but lazy, or bad but good at faking. I'm thinking it's the former, so I'll say Dragonforce.

Dream Theater. There is no better proof of incredibly talented musicians coming together to make incredibly untalented music.

I take issue with your user title.

For me, most metal, and a fair bit of classic rock.

Maiden has more talent and composing skill than most other bands out there. They're not TRYING to sound hard and metal; it's just their style of playing. Metallica tries too hard to sound hard and metal, if you ask me.

Nile,

They are really talented but when I hear there music it doesn't have structure it just sounds like people playing the most complex guitar riff they can think of, off beat drums and a guy growling at random times.

Might be so. But all Maiden's album covers etc just makes me laugh. Because Maiden isn't really that hard as they make themselves out to be...

Have you ever listened....

Scratch that.

Have you any experience with Iron Maiden beyond simply hearing their name?

You can't really try too hard when you are one of the founding fathers of the genre

Back when they first started they were considered one of the most heavy metal bands. They just don't seem as heavy now because there are tonnes of bands that have overdone them.

They have never tried to have a "Hard, we'll beat your ass" image. Now if you wanna talk about those pushover hair metal bands from the 80's on the other hand....

Okay. But their albums and this Edward **** is just pathetic IMO. Is it supposed to be cool or fascinating?

Sure tell me something about them...They make themselves out to be quite hard yeah...And please tell me what bands you'll talk about so I know I should defend any band I like.

+1 for john mayer, i just saw him live a couple weeks ago, can't stand his voice and some of his songs, but damn he can play guitar
#37
Meshuggah. They're very talented with their weird times and all that but I think it sounds like a bunch of chugging and garbage.

Dragonforce. They play sloppily drunk all the time, but even without that, I don't like their music, it all sounds the same. Bunch of dumb sounding power chords.

Have you ever listened to their music? This is the best example of 'don't judge a band by its album covers.' There's a reasoning behind their album covers as well. They aren't trying to be br00tal. They're not even trying to be metal. They're just playing some great riffs and harmonies and writing songs that have meaning behind them, unlike half of the bands I hear nowadays. Look more into Maiden, or come chat with us in the Maiden thread. You gotta look beyond them album covers.

Have heard some and I do agree the riffs are great but something just makes me take them unseriously...
