Which band is better?

I'd take Venom anyday. Welcome to hell and Black Metal are better then anything Metallica has ever made in their whole careers. Venom is just way better. Personally I think Metallica is very overrated.

Completely different bands in different genres. Posts like this are why many frown upon "vs" threads.

Metallica - Thrash/Heavy

Venom - Black/death.


Not a good comparison.
Live as a man. Die as a man. Become a man.

That's the proof of your incompetence, right there.
You lack the qualifications to exercise free will.

As far as I'm concerned... There is no argument to be had.
Also pretty soon the votes will turn to 66.6 percent for Metallica. Which just go's to show you that even HE agrees.

Actually, Cronos would try to tell you that they invented thrash before Metallica and that James and Co. ripped him off (but that would probably just be so that Metal Hammer had a tag line for a one-page interview with him). The rest of the guys that used to be in Venom would tell you Metallica is better...

I'd say Metallica were always better. Kill Em All has that punk/thrash vibe that Venom had. Metallica have always just been better musicians and songwriters. There's a reason that bands get huge - its called talent.

Venom is not death. Obviously you never heard anything from them

Actually they don't like metallica at all

I do believe so. We could even see if Metallica wanted to open for us. Actually, we couldn't do that because they're crap (laughs). I think they need to take the word 'metal' out of the name.

Obviously you're an idiot. Venom are a bunch of talentless wankers who sung about Satan to get some attention.

Give up.
#11
I am of this opinion as well...

Venom has no talent.

Yep Fall Out Boy have ****load of talent huh?


Actually when it comes to writing an album full of catchy pop that 14 year old girls go crazy for, I'd say Fall Out Boy a very ****ing talented. Its takes a lot more talent to be simple and catchy than it does to play fast.

It really isn't that hard. Have you heard their songs? They are simple as hell.

Yeah that thing that's catchy is that the girls all think there hot. You could make absolute **** music, but as long as your hot. The girls will go crazy.

Wow you guys are ****ing idiots. They have no talent compared to who? Metallica? Do you know how ****ing easy metallica songs are to play? And the solos which are just pentatonic scale over and over again.

And lol @ the guy who is actually saying FOB has talent

hi, sorry, but the scale that a player chooses doesn't have anything to do with difficulty...

and its not really just pentatonic scales, because he uses a lot of passing tones... and he actually uses a lot of other scales...

not that hes the greatest but I think he is good, and definitely better than Venom, and you.

I said "they are talented at what they do"...

Are you saying that Venom have written more complicated solos? Teacher's Pet is a lame blues scale run.

And their songs are nowhere near as complicated as anything from Master of Puppets or ...Justice.

Nah brother he mostly uses pentatonic scale for the solo. What other scales does he use?

Venom is better then Metallica plain and simple. Metallica sucked even before losing their bassist.

BTW, I don't see how Where ever I may Roam is easy to you... yet you think Venom is the end all be all of music...

SORRY but your just a black metal fan boy, no better than the fall out boy girls...

I don't think Venom is the greatest **** at all. But they are sure as hell better then Metallica. I use to like Metallica untill I found way better bands and realize just how overrated they actually are.
