I don't really care about the different types of metal and all those people that give a name to every little thing, metal is metal. But I do enjoy mainly European bands such as Raubtier, Ruoska, Rammstein, Sybreed, Deathstars, Firewind, Apocalyptica, etc. Anything with light synthesizer work and manly vocals.

Clearly you're either Swedish, or shop at Hot Topic.. :lol: ::stirs the pot some more::

I keed, I keed.. But seriously, don't get me wrong, I love Slaughter of the Soul, but Pantera can do it all - soft, hard, even radio-friendly.. It's just that ATG wows it's audience in a different way - smashing your face in with blistering riffs and relentless time sigs..

Them's fightin' words, boy! Wait, are there even any At the Gates shirts at Hot-Topic? I know there's Pantera shirts at Hot-Topic. ;)

Honestly, I just never liked Pantera.

when it comes to metal, you need the three t's.

'tera, 'tallica, and 'tura.

I've always loved Metallica, probably my favorite band. I even liked there last album Death Magnetic. I've seen them live twice in 2003 and 2008. I definitely enjoy old Metallica more, but new Metallica is cool with me.


I'm also a big Pantera fan too. I'm actually looking at the Pantera poster in my room right now :mrgreen: .Cowboys From Hell being my favorite album of theirs, but I do like the others. I remember being pretty sad the morning I found out Dimebag was murdered. :cry: RIP brother.

Would be kind of interesting if we took this topic and turned it into "Favorite Metal Songs"

Some of mine are:

Diamond Head - Am I Evil?
Black Sabbath - Children of the Grave, Paranoid, Symptom of the Universe
Metallica - Four Horsemen and Creeping Death(really their two most badass songs. Hetfield really sounded like the devil himself back then :lol: )
Iced Earth - Blessed are You(which seems like a loving tribute to their fans), the Gettysburg trilogy(Iced Earth at their truly most epic), A Question of Heaven(beautful song) and Dante's Inferno(Just a fucking epic, roller coaster ride of a song as you travel through all the circles of hell with Barlow)
Dark Tranquillity - Cathode Ray Sunshine(also featured on Brutal Legend 8) ) , The Mundane and the Magic
Kamelot - the Elizabeth Bathory trilogy, Nothing Ever Dies(my fave part of the song is when Ariel has his epiphany), A Sailorman's Hymn, and tons of other songs
Nightwish - Ever Dream, Ocean Soul, Last of the Wilds, 7 Days to the Wolves, Ghost Love Score, Elvenpath and the re-recorded Astral Romance
Apocalyptica - Drive, Path, Peace, Stroke, Somewhere Around Nothing
Dethklok - Murmaider(duh), Murmaider II(also awesome), The Cyborg Slayers, Comet Song, Awaken, Birthday Dethday, Castratikon, Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle( :lol: ). I've never seen the show, yet I love the songs off their two albums
Epica - Pretty much the whole Design Your Universe album, which I wasn't too into at first but it kept growing on me until I found myself loving it
In Flames - Episode 666, Jotun, Goliaths Disarm Their Davids, Zombies Inc

I never understood why people took such a great, big shit on Death Magnetic. How high could your expectations be after St. Anger?

^ I heard the beginning of one of the Death Magnetic songs on the radio a few years ago and went "Damn, this is fuckin heavy" then it revealed itself as a Metallica song and changed the station. Heheh
