Right… erm and Opeth is underground? What the fuck, I don’t listen to metal at all, besides having friends who like cannibal corpse/sepultura/morbyd angel/dimmu borgir/cradle of filth and others I could not identify, but even I know of them…
While we’re at it, have you heard of this really unconventional INDUSTRIAL band called Nine Inch Nails, dude? They are so underground, man…
What the fuck… THe less you hear about them, the better they are? That is utter bullshit.
There’s nothing wrong with admitting you are listening to pop music. Say it loud and say it proud: ‘I am listen to the pop-band Opeth.’
I agree with Fabi, that is utter bullshit. But its funny how you bring up that point too, b/c the band really had no big promotion deals or anything during there whole career.
What is underground? Music that hasnt been given the full attention that it deserves? And when it gets the attention its mainstream??? Good music is good music
After i made this post yesterday and i went to the Pantera website, and I heard lots of interviews with Phil Anselmo and he was talking about his label is just trying to hype Pantera and Down and make as much money in the band. The thing is about these bands, there not about the pyro Tec nicks, no explosions, no paint, no stage themes, just music. this is a quote from the show " We get to the god damn point these days, non of that bullshit, your not gonna just sit there and watch me and sing and get your dck hard…nah Fck that your here to go f*cking crazy!" The interviews are great, if your actually interested in this genre of music. He even talks about working with the guitarist from Black Sabbath TONY IOMMI.
Well, I am sorry if I sounded like an ass yesterday… But I feel quite passionate about integrity/things making sense and try to avoid hipocrisy and try to point it out when I think I see it.
And the way I see it, even the most evil pseudo-industrial/death metal/goth crap is in the end quite close to being mainstream pop-music when you take into consideration how similar the song structures are, but also the fact that the ‘acolytes’ of this supposedly ‘unconventional’ music often only want something to dance to, like their mainstream backstreet boys-fan or techno moron counterparts.
That’s why I like to refer to a lot of music as ‘dance music’ just to piss people off and to show them that they are hypocrites…
That is not to say that I am perfect, or that you cannot listen to techno/the backstreet boys/staind/the cure/NIN… I just think you should be honest to yourself about the nature of that music and why you listen to it.
I hope I didn’t come across as a self-righteous little bitch… I just like to ramble.
Has anyone ever heard of New Found Power? Thats the other members of Pantera, seems like its gonna be another great band to look forward too(for my case), i think Zak Wylde is apart of it too.(Black Label Society/Ozzy)
O-yeah, lately i been to the nin.com, for a while now nothing on the site has been working, untill now .
Its nothing big or anything, but its a change, so i think NIN might release something new.(if intrested click on the right corner)
Other than that, i know the lead singer of STP(Stone Temple Pilots) is joing the old members of GNR(Guns and Roses) i think its called Reload, not sure yet,but im looking forward to that too. So if any of you people out there heard of anything new and special affecting the metal/rock music of today make a post, and shed some light.
Yeah, I know about nin.com. I think they updated it last friday.
Did you know that on one of those pages there is a hidden message? go to nin.com/halo/4.html … then adjust the brightness of your monitor to REALLY bright… soon you should be able to make out a binary code (1’s and 0’s). If you translate those into ASCII it becomes a written text.
Anyone heard of “Sentenced”? If I mentioned there name Down Under, no-one would what im talking about. Anyway, just wondering what other people’s opinion is about this band? I think they are awesome, but from what I can gather they are considered “Posers” and all those other nasty words in country’s like Finland and stuff.
