Behold the Arctipus is hardly the worst metal band ever. I personally am not a fan, but they play very original music. Mike needs to change his tone tho, it sucks in this video. How can you not see the talent in this?

First of all- this is older than time itself.

Second- they make more innovative music than anyone I've heard in a long time.

Third- yoda says 'Close minded, you are'

That's basically what I was going to say.

Edit: It sounds much better with drums.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

They're not my thing, but they're not the worst; they're quite good musicians, in fact. It's interesting, but not something I'd listen to.

Hating on Behold...The Arctopus = instant fail. He's got an awful tone in this video, but that hardly changes his ability.

Have you ever listened to Skullgrid? Its a technical masterpiece.
Ibanez Xiphos XPT700
Laney VH100R
Epi Les Paul (SH-1 '59 neck, SH-11 custom custom bridge)

They're just crappy song writers. But with those technical skills, they can play whatever they want.

dude, I love B...TA

Truth.

Still not quite my thing, but it's much better with a drummer.

Ah god... it's as if you took Phil Demmel, took away any knowledge he has about proper scales and playing in the right key, gave him an MG, and put him in a crappy Primus cover band.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

I've heard worse. I liked it for the comedy value.

This is on YouTube with **** quality and Behold The Arctopus have more talent then you will ever have.

It doesn't matter if they are technically good; the actual music sounds terrible. That's the bottom line.

Some people like dissonance.

Not a metal band, but just something hilarious I found as a link from the Behold the Arctopus video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=gUUCPHvjd6c&feature=related

Behold...The Arctopus are extremely talented and technical. They certainly don't appeal to the majority of people, but it's not the worst metal band ever.

I respect B...T A, but I honestly can't listen to them for very long without my head starting to hurt.
#30
I don't like them, really. Best technical metal ever = Decapitated.

Are you saying Decapitated are the best technical death metal or that they are the most technical?

This is on YouTube with **** quality and Behold The Arctopus have more talent (**** I can't show it as crossed out) technical proficiency then you will ever have.

They may be able to play fast, but I think basically everyone else on the planet can write better songs than them.

Wow....So much closed-mindedness in here....

Not really. Just because someone doesn't like a certain style of music, it doesn't mean that they are closed-minded. Also, best/worst band is subjective, and thus does not pertain to open/closed-mindedness, but rather opinions.

They suck/are worst = Statement = Closemindedness.
