Though many imposters may come, and many within our group of metal lovers may inspire hate, or spew stupidity, we can all stand strong behind true metal, be it heavy, power, thrash, speed, black, crossover, melodic, death, progressive, or anything in between. Here, today, we gather to discuss our god. Metal is his name, and he is heavy. All glory be to Metal, and may we all show our horns, humbled by its power.

Ascended - Omnipresent Evil [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJLKwsxc90Q[/media] Oh, and this too. Iniquity - The Bullets Breath [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXTyhJgQQIM[/media]
Should have dedicated it to Dio considering the date.
Adding to OP
Obligatory Opeth post: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVc5-W2uZV0[/media]
let's start the first flame war anybody else getting sick of metal being BRVTTTALLL all the time seems like it's more about being heavy then metal
it's the classic "hardcore-er than thou" that existed since the 80s hardcore scene. fortunately it only occurs in niches now. In popular culture with deathcore and that garbage it's not about being brutal it's about having the longest breakdown while maintaining the catchiest (yet shitty) lyrics and choruses. that's what brutal means in that scene
annoys me to no end when people come up to me and ago OH HEY DO YOU LIKE THIS SHITTY BAND SO BVVVTTALLL MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETAAAAAAAAAAAAL YEEEEEEEEEAH and then they do the devils horns sign backwards
Great opening post, Vedi. I'll contribute some Opeth, Decapitated, and two melodeath tracks. I know Opeth have already been posted, but I am going to post another song, from a different album.

[U][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlH-5aAHSYs[/media][/U] probably posted heaps in the last thread but this is probably the last time you will see all these men on stage together, considering most of these guys probably only have a few more years in them for constant touring and then it's retirement time then we can begin the age of BRVTAL HARDC0RE metal being dominate [editline]18th May 2011[/editline] also putting some megadeth on the front page because melodeath is posted too much [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjRreeuXWqI[/media]
Well consider they all started in the 1983 while the stones started in 1963 and they are still touring They could keep going for a good while, we don't know yet also this just in IWABO goes back to their "black metal roots" [url]http://www.metalsucks.net/2011/05/17/exclusive-black-metal-just-got-gay-iwrestledabear-once-change-genres/[/url]

[QUOTE=The_Putty;29887914] also putting some megadeth on the front page because melodeath is posted too much [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjRreeuXWqI[/media][/QUOTE] I was 99,99% certain that it would be either holy wars or peace sells. I fucking love that song, good choice :buddy:
New "The Black Dahlia Murder" song. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6tnamOEK1U[/media] Also, BTBAM (because of the pic in the OP) [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmpqydhf_dI[/media]

[QUOTE=mastermaul;29895148]it's paul di'anno's birthday and no one gives a damn[/QUOTE] Isn't he in prison or something?
[QUOTE=Dopey Trout;29895207]Isn't he in prison or something?[/QUOTE] Lmao he is for benefit fraud :v: A graph of Maiden's frontman quality would be a vertical line after di'anno. [editline]17th May 2011[/editline] Apperently the last five bands he's been in are all named after Maiden songs.
