Are W.A.S.P. real metal or not? POLL ADDED PLACE YOUR VOTE

Post#1 » Tue Jul 14, 2009 6:06 pm

Split from "CAULDRON.... poser metal of the 2000s?" thread. It was pretty fucked up. Did the best I could. /Mod

Added a poll to settle this once and for all on 09/07/2011. /Mod
big mouth wrote:I recently received cds of CAULDRON "chained" and white wizard or something, both on Earache and while W.W sounds very much like a fade/ generic NWOBHM act, I can't help but think ofd CAULDRON being just a wimpy 2000 version of what crap/ false metal like WASP/ MOTLEY CRUE and the likes were back in the day... but I guess i'm in a very very small minority considering the hype surrounding 'em already.... sorry but the material csounds so lifeless, wimpy and even happy at times.... utter bullshit.
Are you seriously insulting WASP here?

Yeah I'm very serious..I'm not insulting them I'm just saying what I and the Metalheads from the early '80s were saying regarding WASP....
Seriously, you can't call WASP Real Metal, can you?

If you can't enjoy WASP's debut, you're not a (traditional) heavy metal fan.

I love WASP but that kind of exclusionary thinking is really childish in my opinion.

I didnt really care for WASP afterward, but I was already metalhead when 1984 came out and it majorly rocked my world, and still does. Songs like Hellion and I Wanna Be Somebody have a very major place in my personal metal pantheon. If worshiping em makes me the ultimate poser, so be it.

I'm not familiar with Cauldron to make a comment on them.

I'll second what Iordan says here. Still love the first WASP album after these 25 or so years....

Metal don't get heavier than W.A.S.P. "The Headless Children" should be proof enough.

"Shit ip"?

Yeah, W.A.S.P. were pretty nasty sounding for an '80s band in make-up, but one of the rawest? They were hardly Hellhammer.
