do the metalheads like carcass rip-off guitarwork in their melodic death and metalcore or the more prominent at the gates worship style?
#2
Both work really, but never reach the originals. I prefer some innovation.

Carcass are great at what they do, as is At The Gates.

Although At the Gates and Carcass may be my two favorite bands of all time, I can not stand any of the ripoffs of either. I think part of what made them so great was their originality.

Carcass clones FTW.

Although TBDM and The Absence rule.
- Treat people the way you would like to be treated.
- Don't do to others what you wouldn't like others to do to you.
- Live and let live.
- Always tell the truth.
- If someone looks at you, just give them a nice smile they won't soon forget

Well let's weigh the options here:

On one hand we have Carcass worshippers like Exhumed and Impaled

On the other hand, we have all those horrendous metalcore bands that ripoff ATG

Yeah I prefer the Carcass ripoffs myself.

People on the internet are stupid. Blatant rip-offs are annoying, but every band draws influence from what they listen to. In one way or another, we're all just stealing Sabbath riffs.

At The Gates are such metal-nerds. All they talk about on the Slaughter dvd is "the Slayer beat" and how they had to have all the 'right' vinyl on the table for the "Master Of Puppets" photo for the album sleeve.

Guess even the best are plagiarists in some way....look at Metallica (Diamond Head rip-off) Slayer (Venom rip-off) and the way everyone in metalcore has stolen Glenn Danzig's style..there is no such thing as pure originality. Just expanding on the influence of others.

Enemy's not really a clone... they got a chick singing...
#28
and I'd say both her and Amott wish she was Jeff Walker.

Do you think she uses the death metal voice in bed with him?
#29
To be honest I think that would turn me on a little ... but any ways she cited Jeff Walker as one of her influnces... So yeah I think she is just a litte...

Quote by recklessnick
i dunno the difference. but i prefer at the gates clones because i remember hearing people calling black dahlia murder a rip off of at the gates and BDM rules

I agree. The Absence on From your Grave sound more like ATG then TBDM ever did. Both Awesome bands IMO tho.
