OK a hatelist was called for -so here's mine.....(Believe it or not ,I actually agree with whoever said we should avoid these kind of "hate" threads -but they're like a red rag to a bitter old curmudgeon like me. A moth to the flame I am
Pantera - goes without saying , so many reasons to hate them , they introduced more idiots into Metal than even Metallica , their macho-jock-gonna fuck you up-leave me alone -one day I'm gonna snap-tribal tattooed bullshit attitude has absolutely NOTHING to do with the REAL spirit of Metal , they completely deny their past - musically they were crap -fifth rate Exhorder rip -off with boring riffs a horrible sound and Scumbag's solos were patently awful.
Anthrax - Made ONE good-awesome in fact- album - Joey Belladonna belonged in Journey & John Bush shoulda stayed with Armored Saint ,boring as they come ,Scott Ian is a money grubbing wannabe celebrity wanker more intent on mocking 80's Metal on VH1 or being a reality tv star then writing decent Metal -and above all they started the "it's cool for Metalheads to like rap" bullshit.DIE!!!
Post To Mega Therion Celtic Frost - IMO ,Into the Pandemonium is responsible for all the avant garde experimental bullshit that has infected Metal since and appeals to try-hard intellectual fuckheads who are secretly embarrassed about being Metalheads. Tom G.Warrior/Fischer is just a tosser now -don't forget Mindfunk & Appolyon Sun
Post -Nightside Emperor - Pretentious bullshit ,Isahn should stick to be a second rate Quorthon clone instead of his delusions of being the the re-incarnation of Wagner -and trying to get the Terrorizer staff writers to suck his cock. "Groundbreaking" ,my shiny Metal arse!
95% of contemporary Black Metal - er -um - hate to interupt your corpse painted circle jerk ,kiddies ,but WHERE'S THE FUCKING METAL ?? The very small handful of BM bands that actually remember to add the Metal are usually the only ones worth listening to.
Brutal Death Metal (Skinless ,Mortician ,Dying Fetus , Nile ,Hate Eternal etc.)- Soulless blast beat bollocks ,show off crap & cheap shock value aimed at dumb arse teens -again ,IMO ,nothing to do with Metal
Over-hyped barely Metal shit like Mastodon ,High On Fire ,The Sword and pretty much most of the Relapse , Nuclear Arse & Century Mediocre rosters - you and your band too can get famous if your label saturates all the major shitrags with advertising and bribes the "journalists" to lavish praise on your shitty records.
Flower Metal - idiotic over produced uninspired crap that sounds like nursery rhymes for aspiring homosexuals.
Opeth - how this most ordinary and boring of bands gets so much attention just defies belief.
Bands that are constantly associated with Metal yet have nothing to do with it like Ministry ,Converge ,Tool & Sunn 0))) - complete faggotry mainly listened to by middle class tossers who think they're smarter than the average Metalhead. Fuck Off -I got into Metal to get away from this kind of shit and the kind of wankers who listen to it.
Post-Ride Metallica - apart from the fact that MOP is probably the most overrated album in the history of Metal - this band surely is too , there's just so much to hate , Lars , The Black album , The "we're not Metal" proclamations that accompanied the Load disasters , The antics in Some Kind of Monster , Napster , Pandering to the mallcore crowd ,their dumbarse comments slagging off 70's rock -before going and copying it ,St.Inker ,the moronic legions of "Metalli-fans" -most of whom are just complete half-wits who rarely even listen to any other Metal bands -I could go on forever....
My Dying Shite - Queer Goth Crap for self - absorbed cry babys and psuedo-intellectual fags -Not remotely Metal ,Doom or Heterosexual.
Post Def Jam Slayer - RIB is almost as overrated as MOP - SOH was actally better album as far as I'm concerned (not THAT great ,but I enjoyed it) , SITA was as boring as fuck and from Divine Intervention onwards they've just been complete and utter crap.
Ok that's the negativity out of my system for now , I should be good for a while.
