  1. Like listening to a really talented band that has same damn over-the-top, meedly-meedly solo in every song.
  2. The greatest rock star of all time: Pete Townshend.
  3. Update: I picked up a pile o' metal this weeked: Testament - Low Devildriver - Fury of Our Maker's Hand Judas Priest - Angel of Retribution Exodus - Atrocity Exhibition Only the Priest CD has traditional vocals like I was looking for, but all four sound like winners. Man, the new Exodus stuff is brutal. I dig it.
  4. I missed the show. What did Grohl do? I'm a huge fan.
  5. No keys, please. I want aggressive stuff. I'm also not sure I can handle any crazy operatic stuff Like King Diamond. I just want something good. It's not like I'm looking for something with great vox. I just want good metal where the singing doesn't ruin the rest of it for me. Shadows Fall is close I guess, but I just find their stuff kind of soulless.
  6. Looking for something that kicks ass with a hint of melody in the vocals. It seems like everything out there is cookie monster vocs or worse. I don't need Geoff Tate or Bruce Dickinson, but something with more of an old school Hetfield vibe would work. Considering that Metallica is the biggest metal band of all time, you'd think more folks would try the straighforward, growling vocal approach with actual melodies. I can't find it. Anyway, I like thrash type music - chugga-chugga guitars, double bass, all the good aggressive stuff. I'm currently listening to Shovel Headed Kill Machine by Exodus. It's great except for the vocs... Help me out.
  7. Don't forget the stale cigarette smoke and sour beer smells, too! Cat piss costs extra.
  8. HEAVY. I dig it! Here's a link for those too lazy to cut and paste. Liink
  9. The Cure. It's an awesome name and should have been reserved for a great band.
  10. They did it a couple years ago. Not too impressive, if I remember correctly.
  11. Because they are the same people that made the great Gibson Les Pauls of the 1950s, they are continuing The Heritage of great guitar making. The early Gibsons had "The Gibson" on the headstock as well. And also, since these guys are the same guys who made Gibsons back in the '50s, that means they are really, really old. Old people say things like "I'm going to get a fish sandwich and a cup of coffee at the Burger King."
  12. Absolutely. Sounds like they kicked ass. I was shocked to hear that Plant is "only" 59. As I get older, my perception of what is "old" keeps changing. Then again, being a Doug Pinnick fan will do that to you too.
  13. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I can't help but think they are going to suck.
  14. That's awesome, Nick. I'm really happy for you.
  15. An origignal song I wrote called "Touch." I've been trying to get the drums down for the past hour and I'm about to go batshit. I hate this song right about now, but I'll have it running through my head all night. I should know better than to work on music right before bedtime...
  16. Blackie Lawless?!? That's more Chris Robinson than Blackie. Come on, El. Your inner hippie should appreciate that comparison.
  17. That rocks. The singer has a great voice for this kind of stuff. I dig the lead-work, too.
