I had a conversation about this with my friend the other day. We start off talking about Metallica and how they've sucked for however many years. Getting to the point, I couldn't think of any band that was still good after being together for more than 15 years. Then I got the bright idea that this might be an interesting discussion. So go nuts.

Alright, METAL bands. Seeing as this is the metal forum.


And not ****ing poison, they were never good. Therefore disqualifying them.

yeah metallica was probably best in the 80's, a little in the 90's with sandman, but their 80's stuff beats their new stuff anyday.
#12
Joe Satriani, Van Halen, GNR is still touring... but I don't think they're good at all.

I don't know if a lot of the bands I know of are even still touring...

poison was ok, but they don't belong in this thread. poison was never metal, and this is a metal thread. they're ok, if you like 80's stuff, but again, this is a metal thread.

Exodus, Deicide, Megadeth, Cannibal Corpse(I guess), Iron Maiden, and Opeth. That's all I can think of right now though.

oh my goodness. i think GNR is done to death. WAY OVERRATED! i mean, GNR is ok, once in a while. but everywhere you go, you see slash this, gnr that. i mean come on. once in a while it's ok. but it seems that UG needs to find an excuse every week to stick slash in the news, or gnr reunion rumors, just for the heck of it.
#17
Iron Maiden, NOFX, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Green Day, RHCP, The Who, Dream Theater, Stereophonics, Billy Bragg, Reel Big Fish, Motorhead... The list goes on and on. (Although some of these are debatable and I didn't check whether they'd all been going 15+ years so I might have got that wrong.)

EDIT: (I just noticed it was a metal thread. Sorry.)
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Amon Amarth and Necrophagist.


I'm pretty sure Necrophagist hasn't even been around for 10 years.

I think their first demo (Requiems of Festered Gore, best name ever) was '92 or something.

EDIT: Beaten to it.

Amorphis has just recently made 2 of probably their best albums after 15 years and 8 recordings. Opeth, Slayer (with their latest album) and In Flames have stood the test of time pretty well I think.

Iron Maiden and Judas Priest are still playing like they just started. (Although, Judas Priest required a kick up the arse from Roy Z and Maiden was helped with the changing around of singers/guitarists).
#23
CATHEDRAL. Not only are they still good after 17/18 years or so, their last album was quite possibly the best thing they've ever done.
The new W.A.S.P album is the best they've done since The Crimson Idol.
And regardless of what the haters may say, A Matter of Life and Death is one of Iron Maidens top 3 records.

fuckin people, this is the damn metal forum. i hate it when some of these threads get put on the front page.

Cannibal Corpse blew in the beggining with Barnes the suckfest, but now after over 15 years they are good.

hahaha maybe that is one for the "Bands that are FINALLY good after 15+years"

Then, about two minutes later of just plowing, I can feel it coming. She's still moaning and rolling back, and then I pull out. I grab her by her hair, pull her head up, and yell out:

I hope after 15 years people will learn to ***************************** read. This is the metal forum get Guns N Roses, REM and all that other crap out of here!

Maiden - Still kickass
Metallica - maybe not in the studio, but no one can touch them when it comes to putting on a live show
Opeth - always will be great
Amon Amarth - Oden On Our side - best album they have released
Deicide - their last album was one of their best
Machine Head - uh, The Blackening
Dream Theater - still rule
Porcupine Tree - oh wait! This is the metal forum! Scratch that!

Learn from my example, dicks.

Christ, just because it's the great and mighty metal forum doesn't mean we can't talk about anything else. Plus, the title suggests any band really. I've never seen anyone overreact before. You're such a **** dude. Wow.

+1, I totally agree with that. Death never get's old.

Anyways, Pantera was really great for a majority of their career. Until the whole thing with Phil happened. Even though Pantera or death aren't touring anymore, they still kick major ass to this day. Didn't change much either. Besides the Power Metal to Thrash/Heavy/Groove metal by Pantera. R.I.P. Chuck and Dime
#37
I think Ozzy is still pretty good. I'm not sure if he is considered metal here or not though.
#38
Has Meshuggah been around for that long....I believe so. I choose them and Opeth!

I'm sure there's more I can't think of but:

Amon Amarth
Rotting Christ
Necrophagist
