    The Official Heavy Metal Thread

    I think RZ can support a heavy metal thread. This thread is to share heavy music. I invision this thread covering classic metal, thrash, nu-metal, black metal and any other heavy music there is. I kind of stole this idea from the AOR thread I like so much. The point is not to tell someone what sucks, but to share what you like. Although you do not have to post links, they are appreciated (I will listen to every one that is posted). Also, anyone wanting to share news (new releases, live performances, deaths) this would be a perfect place to do so.

    I hope everyone enjoys the first post. They are some of my favorites, from bands spanning from 1970-current.

    Black Sabbath-N.I.B.

    Simply put, my favorite riff of all time.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOXPSSZkFD0

    Metallica-For Whom The Bell Tolls

    My favorite song on my favorite Metallica record

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_eGXPzSzAg

    Danzig-Dirty Black Summer

    Love the guitar, love Danzig

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kRtTtpG8Ls

    Pantera-Drag The Waters

    Huge, heavy riff.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hx8TW6sYys

    Epica-Cry For The Moon

    Something completely different. I dig this European symphonic metal. I saw Epica last year, and she (Simone Simons) sounds just as good live as on the CD.)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e77tL...eature=related

    The above are not necessarily the best artists (or the best by these artists), but a great place to start a thread about heavy metal.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    As a classical musician who loved metal Metallica's S & M was pretty much the greatest thing that ever happened to my ears.

    \m/

    Metallica was my favorite band in high school and then some. I wore a different Metallica t-shirt to school most every day except Fridays which were Good Mourning/Black Friday. I had hair to my ass and played bass in a band. I loved metal. Still do, but for different reasons these days, now its about music more than anger and attitude, though I still love it for those reasons sometimes too.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Sorry for your experience. From what I understand from about '76 until Ozzy left it was a crap chute whether you would get good Sabbath or bad Sabbath live. I didn't see them until they were doing Ozzfest in either 01 or 02. Great show!

    Metal? Isn't that the satan worshipping music? Why, I can't even understand what they are saying. How can you listen to that crap? Kill your mother, rape your dog? That's just a bunch of noise.






    Have I covered all the stupid cliches yet? Anyone who says that to me, you aren't clever, you aren't funny, and I hate you.

    This thread will quickly become my favorite thread on the board most likely. I'm on my phone right now but I will post some cool stuff later.
    numbersinthereds.blogspot.com I actually made a post on 7/24/14. I promise.

    Re: The Official Heavy Metal Thread

    Like that Epica above? Not quite as gothic. Little more mainstream sounding.

    I'm only including this because the Knight Rider riff around the 2 minutes in cracks me up.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXS5AEZ-8_s

    You know how everyone says old bands suck when they do new material? Those people are dumb. This rules.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWy1kFe2oCs

    New TESTAMENT!!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtP6Brv6CCM

    New Kamelot with their excellent new singer.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORAc_hx33-Q

    My favorite Nightwish song: It will get stuck in your head for days. I'm partial to the live version so that's what I put up.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plkM5iQ6BvY

    And finally for now....my favorite band in the world....ever.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVAyXI6kn94


    Yeah, I like a lot of different subgenres.

    To answer your questions: Yes. Then you aren't listening close enough. I turn it up really loud. No, it's kill your babies and rape your mothers. Is not.

    I keep trying to teach my oldest son(10) to play air guitar correctly. He looks really stupid when he plays. It may necessitate a move to air drum set.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I would have to see that. I didn't know it was possible to not look stupid while playing air guitar, and yes I still play a mean air guitar.

    Many times he puts the hands in the wrong position, and strums with the wrong hand. He also nods his head backwards, instead of the appropriate head bang.

    Maiden is still my favorite band, the four albums they released in the 2000's are among their best. Also Maiden is a three axe attack.

    Here's a blast from the past.

    Armored Saint - Can U Deliver? (1984)

    "I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
