I check out the new stuff from time to time but must admit that much of it is just garbage to me. Especially the stuff on mainstream radio. Streaming radio on the internet is a bit different...nandk said:Im into bands like chimaira, ill nino, slip knot, mushuggah ect.....I am almost 40 years old so many different influences come out in my songwritting. I think that too many people get a liitle "set in their ways" as we get older, some of my friends, that are my age do not listen to the newest bands and its too bad because they have become a little more closed minded and dont even realize it. Shadows fall has a song called Ghosts of past failures, it is 80's and the modern metal style mixed. :rock:
Megadeth is, or was, awesome. They are still ok...MegaTrey said:I like metal.. well.. I like megadeth, not a big fan of many other metal bands.
diamond head is ok, but I wont buy a cd just to listen to them. Maiden falls under my classic rock gernenroberts said:Megadeth is, or was, awesome. They are still ok...
What about Diamond Head, Iron Maiden, and all the rest of the nwobhm? The *real* heavy metal...
Well if you are happy listening to the butchered version of those few songs Metalica "covered" then that will do. Metalica couldn't even cover themselves without fucking it up.Ipecac said:I like diamond head but for what its worth metallica ripped them off so much you might as well listen to metallica.
Excuse me but I thought the whole point of metallicas garage days releases was to pay homage to their influences and raise awareness of where they developed their music from. They never tried to hide it (In fact I was sick of hearing about it in every lars interview during the 80's) but to a lot of people here in the uk - metallica introduced Diamond Head to a whole new audience. People love to kick metallica these days - but Diamond Head never released anything as good as Masters Of Puppets imo.Ipecac said:They rather push the money whore (metallica) and take all the kiddies money with a known product and hide the inspiration for it.
I like the diamond head songs the way they are. Everyone is diffenet I guess.Ipecac said:I think diamond head were one of the best NWOBM bands to come out. I dont like the metallica versions better - but i do like the power they put into them. Diamond Head really should put out a remastered best of compilation over here (the states - canada.) they just sound so weak.
