    Baron = a Five tune.

    Old Man Gloom are immense, their latest album is real quality. They have Aaron Turner from Isis in the band.

    Take a look for Five's Continuum Research Project - Hemophilliac Dream, there are only two tracks on it but the first one is stunning. THey nicked a Pink Floyd riff (set your controls to the heart of the sun) and turned it into an epic monster of a tune. The best thing they have done by far.

    Fork, I can't get enough of Meshuggah's latest, "I". The part starting at 05:40 sounds like the thoughts of a 400m high murdering machine set to destroy the world.

    I JUST came back from a concert with Mastodon / Slipknot / Slayer. Mastodon was really nice, but I'd like to see them in a smaller venue, more club-like enviroment.

    Slipknot totally crushed old fat Slayer. This is the third time I've seen Slayer and well, they have a certain tendency to make me fall asleep *zzzzzzzzz* My dad is right, they're only playing one song, over and over :p

    While I don't like all Slipknot material I must confess they are great performers. Atleast they have understood that they are entertainers and that visual apperence IS important, unlike the old trash/death bands who think 1.5 hours of guitar solos defines "a great time" ands should be enough.

    Three great drummers in one night one, and I got free tickets :D

    It's true about Slayer songs all sounding similar. But they do sound great, don't they?

    Prefer a little (modern) doom myself, can't get into death metal at all *cowers*. Slow it dowwwwwwwwwn.

    Evoken ("Quietus" is the most crushingly heavy and depressing record evar, surely)
    Shape of Despair
    Void of Silence
    My Dying Bride
    Skepticism ("The March and the Stream" - don't listen to this if suicidal)
    Pantheist

    That sort of thing.

    I saw Cult of Luna the other day. They were very good live.

    Think I'll go and watch Dillinger Escape Plan next month.

    Neurosis are playing in London during December, might see if I can get down and get me some of that.

    Gonna see DEP too. In the stinky Fleece and Firkin \o/

    With Poison the Well in support, who I'm not so sure about. My flatmate loves them, but he's an emo-loser.

    Just my luck to come in late on a metal thread.

    I still say metal's a bit dead in the UK. We've not had a decent festival here in years, just watered down catwank full of shitehouse bands and one or two "names".

    "Iiiit's time for... BLACK SABBATH! (andlinkinparkthedarknesslimpbizkitandsum41thankyouforyourninetyquid)"

    That's why I go to Graspop in Belgium and Wacken in Germany - got to drink loads of beer, eat loads of meet and saw loads of bands (for less than the price of a UK fest). How metal is that? :D

    Bal-Sagoth, Cathedral, Children of Bodom, Death Angel, Destruction, Helloween and Saxon all kicked ass this year :)

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Download was good for me this year.

    Metallica
    Korn
    Slayer
    Hatebreed
    Machine Head
    Soulfly
    Damageplan

    Probably some more worth mentioning as well, and that was all on one day. Shame 'tallica's set was a bit... different due to the absence of Lars, but on the bright side that meant that we only got the old classics; not a single post Black Album song.

    Oh man, reading this thread is making me feel OLD.

    I have never heard of most of the bands mentioned. Can't believe Death Angel and Helloween are still going though.

    Blidey, I remember when Master of Puppets came out.

    /sighs...eyes watery with fond memories of metal-related antics

    That's not too bad, though some would argue the "metal" credibility of Metallica (ad infinitum), Korn, Hatebreed, Soulfly and occasionally Damageplan.

    Wacken was good for me because on just one day (out of the three - which probably cost the same as a ticket to 1 day in the UK if not less) I saw:

    Bal_Sagoth
    Death Angel
    Unleashed
    Anthrax
    Cannibal Corpse
    Nevermore
    Hypocrisy
    Helloween
    Children of Bodom
    Saxon
    and Satyricon (a bit gay)

    The day before that was a bit of a blur but I remeber Cathedral and Arch enemy :)

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I saw Cathedral in Manchester in 95, on the Hopkins: Witchfinder General Tour. It remains the best gig I've ever been to. Great fun, metal needn't be miserable and this show was an absolute blast.


    Metal's not miserable at all! Cathedral kicked arse at Wacken - they did that Probot song "Stone Cold Man" and finished off with "Hopkins: Witchfinder General"

    People were smiling the whole weekend :) Well 'cept for during Satyricon's set. Apparently smiling, beer, meat and fun aren't very tr00 or l33t. Cunts.

    To be honest, I don't think I'm true metal enough for that. Anthrax, Children of Bodom and Arch Enemy, sure, but the rest I've either never heard or can't stand.

    Blimey,this takes me back..back in old days(80's/early 90's) Metal was a way of life..i remember buying the first issue of Kerrang!(wish i still had it,but there you go..).
    As I got older(and Married) my interest waned and settled down a bit,started listening to mellow stuff.Suddenly Metal seemed to disappear,almost overnight!Little did i know..it had merely gone underground,totally ignored by radio and gigs seemed to stop.Ah well,thought I,it was good whilst it lasted...Nirvana,Pearl Jam etc will have to do.
    Recently started playing(?) Second Life (look it up,kids) ingame Metal nightclubs are represented very well(check out the superb Brimstone Club) and it was real wake up call....so much to re-discover!

    Well excited..got some new stuff(SOAD..F'kin amazing!!) and have been headbanging in the kitchen A LOT :)

    The kids are embarrassed and the Wife keeps hiding my Slipknot cd's but i'm persevering!

    Can't believe Slayer are still going........

    I used to buy Kerrang every Wednesday morning at Lancaster Uni and go sit in Cartmel Bar with a pint and swap metal gossip with my mate jimbo who also bought the rag.

    Phil Alexander had become editor recently but his destruction of a good magazine hadn't taken place yet - it took a while before the cunt ruined the whole thing.

    /fondly remembers the early 90s.

    Yeah, I remember some of the stuff out of Phil's pen in the early 90s... "KERRANG! The sound of a thousand eardrums bleeding in unison!"

    And now he's more likely to write "Here's some lovely young boys singing punk your gran or local MP would like with their hit new song 'I want to put my penis in your children'". Cunt. Stupid purple-suited cunt.

    Actually that's an interesting aside - he was presenting a screening of the Ozzfest film "We sold our souls for rock 'n' roll" in London a few years back and hosting a Q+A with Sharon Osbourne.
    The guy was wearing a purple suit. I remember thinking "Dude! Just when I thought you couldn't look any more like a cock..."

    Dude - it's Satyricon. They're fine if you're 14. And a girl. But after that... I dunno, they're just so ropey a lot of the time. Satyricon had Nocturno Culto with them and tried to get away with billing it as "plus Darkthrone".

    Meh, they were on from about 1am to 3:30am, so i just watched a few songs and then fucked off to the bar or to chat to people (or get more meat from the food stands!). I guess being on at that time of night and for so long the 'leccy must have clicked over to Economy or something so they let them just do what they wanted.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Yeah, bastards! :p

    Still, the teenygoffs loved it. Though you should have seen Cradle Of Filth at Graspop in Belgium. All these kids covered in merchandising walking round and they blatantly weren't amused by me walking past the tent quacking like a duck. Fuckin' talentless midget.

    Sadly Panoptican isn't as great as Oceanic. It is good but I was a little let down by it, not enough grunt.
