itt post about metal
It is a glorious thing. 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.[/quote]

Let's give this a better start then:
I was there! Still brings tears to my eyes!
Fave metal choon all day every days.
I've still never seen saxon :<
Continuing the NWOBHM theme let's have a bit of Blitzkrieg
Fuck you its folk metal February

Easily their best song from the Ozzy years.
Personally my favorite song ever from black sabbath.
That riff is just pure evil. Sounds like the end of the world.
got this stuck in my head lately
So, I just returned home from this...
and it was awesome. [sp]but Lacuna Coil was shit IMO and Volbeat wasnt much better[/sp]
I wish every metal band made album covers as well as Mastodon does.

Personally, I don't find Mastodon's album covers to be that impressive. I mean, they're better than a lot of other bands, but there's nothing particularly special about them.
Especially the cover of [i]The Hunter[/i], which I feel to be their worst album cover yet (and debatedly my least-favorite album they've released).
Yeah, The Hunter is a bit bland but I really like their use of vibrant color.
I mean, it's better than some bands that give the whole "dark as possible to make it more brutal" thing. While we're on the subject, favorite album covers?
Personal favorite of mine is Youthanasia, though Rust In Peace is often more recognizable.
as with any other aspect of metal, the right answer is "anything from slayer"
Never really liked how extreme slayer got, but now that I've started listening to more death metal I should give them another go.

Try Hell Awaits. It inspired a lot of early extreme metal acts (both black and death metal) plus it's not pure ultra-fast wankery like Reign in Blood (not that ultra-fast wankery is bad, Hell Awaits feels 'tighter' and more well-written than Reign).
the best black metal album cover was created about a hundred years before black metal.
Obligatory repost from old thread:
I don't really get the hype around Slayer. Show No Mercy is probably their best album, everything else I just found drags on and a lot of songs sound the same
I fucking love slayer.
AT DAWN THEY SLEEP :rock:
Also, couldn't find the studio version from any other video on youtube, so just ignore the guitar hero gameplay
speaking of Slayer, i've always slightly preferred Seasons in the Abyss to Reign in Blood tbh
