While I personally think most of them suck, I really have to say I enjoy Korn. I love their music, and I think it's really cool that Jonathan is very vocal about issues like child abuse. I think their music is very honest, and much better to listen to than say Static X... please don't flame me for this, but I really do like KoRn, and if you appreciate KoRniness, feel free to post here too.

Hi there... I dont really like Korn, but I am a big fan of Rammstein.. yeah not many people like them, and I dont care much for their on stage antics etc. But their music is just a great and powerful mix that I cant help it. The mix of techno beats/heavy guitar riffs etc. are excellent, at least to me. I love how they use the strings/orchestra in their new album as well.

I like Tool and Alice In Chains, but I don't really consider them hardcore metal bands, though some might

For me, either Zombie or Pantera is the way to go for metal.

I think of Tool as a heavy Radiohead, but still very talented, much moreso than Korn, have you heard Lateralus?

it's heavy dark music some of it, but a lot of them are just expressing their experience of and wishes for the world. It's far from all being negative

Blasphemy!!!

Danni Filth is god and the devil in one person.

Other good bands; Dissection, Amorphis, The Gathering, Orphanage, Rammstein and Nightwish!

Band which suck; Korn and Limp Bizkit.

A thread about metal bands without a mention of Metallica?!?! If you want to hear some real "METAL", listen to "Kill EM' All", Ride The Lightning", or Master of Puppets, by Metallica! GREAT STUFF! I really don't consider Metallica's current stuff or a band like KORN to be "METAL"! Its more just Rock or Rap/Rock.

Metallica used to play some tight, killer tunes, but they just seem to be drifting more and more towards trying to make pop records, which is a waste of time for them (also, maybe our resident sticks man Juan Swallow can substantiate this, but i suspect that Lars Ulrich has gotten very lazy behind the drum kit)

Rammstein is very good sounding, but their lyrics are generally a load of crap if you understand any German

The other bands listed here besides Metallica so far are on the light side. None of them have the speed or intensity of Metallica's first 3 albums. In fact, I would not even call them metal. By the way, Its CLIFF BURTON, not Cliff Young. Might be a while before a new Metallica album. Jason just left, and now James Hetfield has gone into Rehab for Alcohal abuse. It will be interesting to see what they come up with on the next album.

I love early 'tallica, except Kill 'Em All has too much of Mustaine's writing on it... Ride the Lightning is my favorite Metallica CD, though. I don't think they've drifted towards pop so much as they've become a more diverse band. I personally love everything they've ever done. Nothing beats Creeping Death, though.

Also, I think of Zep as a rock n' roll band, my 3rd favorite, but not a metal band. The last really heavy album they made was ZoSo, which wasn't as thick as Zep I or II. Best album is Houses of the Holy, though. I love the flow of that album, and "Over the Hills and Far Away" is sublime.

I was very excited to take my 15 year old, who thinks Dimebag is a great guitarist, to see Pantera when they toured Australia in May. Tool have just done a few nights here, we couldn't afford to go.It was funny when I first heard Tool I was saying I like that bass player, a kind of circular feel. Lo and behold, a perfect circle emerges.I think I prefer apc. But no way will they miss Machine Head, who will be here at the end of next month. I like the earthy feel of Sepultura but I prefer Soulfly. I like Fieldy's bass playing(from Korn) and Jonathon's intensity.

I don't know, it's heavy dark music some of it, but a lot of them are just expressing their experience of and wishes for the world. It's far from all being negative if you take in the lyrics. I know in the past 2 years I've bought a lot more heavy CD's than U2 ones. I'm a sucker for my kids. You would not get a straighter,more together emerging man than my 15 year old. He is not damaged/badly influenced by heavy metal IMHO.Just about on a daily basis one of my
boys
floors me with his sensitivity to and understanding of this world.
I know exactly what you mean. People are too drawn into the stereotype that music with loud gutitars and agressive vocals is somehow dark or evil. It's catharsis, they're expressing emotions, events, and most of the time discouraging the negative things people seem to think they embody.
