    What I find interesting about some of those Scandinavian metal bands - such as Moonsorrow - is the way they incorporate their long history of folk tales and folk music into their own genre. Not something you really get in modern British heavy music (though to turn the thread full circle Led Zeppelin did it).

    You'll hear violins and traditional instruments playing traditional melodies in a lot of even extreme Scandinavian metal. There's definitely a lot more to it than noise and Cookie Monster vocals. Well, sometimes. :)

    Yeah - you're thinking of Nu-Metal. In which case... I hope not.

    Sounds like a delicious yet pointless thread.

    Must. Read. Later.

    Youre mission, should you choose to accept it, is to get your band to do a cover of 'Just one cornetto' and post it up in this thread.

    @Mr_Sleep

    Cheers for the suggestion! My musical diet for the most part is some form of metal/rock or jazz :D

    Waiting for a classical piece to blow my head clean off like the first time I heard the likes of Death's 'Human' or John Coltrane's 'Giant Steps'. They're pretty formative albums that set me off on my merry way.

    Again, speaking as a death metal fan who thinks it's all a bit daft, the only thing funnier than a band who doesn't take themselves seriously is one who actually does.

    You know this was said on the previous page. It's even more valid than ever now...

    Get out!

    From this moment only zeppelin or Sabbath can be discussed. :)

    Listening to zeppelin lying down on sofa half drunk with head phones on now. Just so so amazing.

    Current track dyer maker, previous black dog, next out on the tiles.

    Okay so!

    Tony Iommi, godfather of the almighty riff, originally wanted to play drums, but couldn't afford them and subsequently picked up a guitar instead. His industrial accident (in a very working-class environment) in which he lost the tips of two fingers on his fretting hand and the subsequent downtuning of his guitar helped to solidify one of the key aural aesthetics of heavy metal.

    Discuss the socio-economic factors associated with birthing Polka Tulk, the misappropriation of the blues and the main formative factors associated with 'eavy metal. Better now? :D

    Also Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is their best album! not really, but it's close.

    For me Zeppelin is best, Beatles songs are good but now I don't enjoy their music so much.

    Never been a Zeppelin fan. I think their music sounds more dated than The Beatles.

    Zeppelin is okay. Beatles isn't.

    No. Sabotage is the best. And Vol.4 is the best too. And Sabbath Bloody Sabbath too.

    You missed Master of Reality (which is my actual favourite).

    Well, all of the first six ones are pretty good, Master of Reality isn't among my favourites, but it's the one that I think is in metal terms most timeless. Play it again with modern amps and production, and you wouldn't notice it was written fourty years ago.

    That's what cereal boxes of cocaine delivered to the recording studio does for an album. Drugs are good kids.

    I was listening to Master of Reality this week, it is probably my favourite also.

    As for Led Zeppelin, despite being a massive fan in my youth, I've kind of shunned them for the last 20 odd years.
    Jimmy Page winds me up and is perhaps top of the pile of baby boomer rock gods I'd like to see fall down the stairs.

    Despite this, I'm quite curious about the latest round of reissues he's got coming out next month. The thought of alternative album sleeves and a 2nd CD of unreleased tracks has piqued my interest.
