When it comes to thrash I much prefer bands like Overkill, Testament, Megadeth, Slayer, Death Angel, Exodus, Kreator, Destruction and Sodom.
Talk about sounding similar!!
Those bands don't have wah wah addicts on guitar, or drummers who can't quite keep time, or fake macho vocals.
I meant they all sound similar to each other. And a step down from Metallica
A BIG step up from the tired, sell-out posers with a guitarist who can't even play the band's own riffs and needs the drummer to help him relearn it.
Sell-out!! Hahahahahaha..you mean popular, which doesn't equate to sell-out. I have no interest in the present-day Metallica. Their 80's output wipes the floor with every band you mentioned.
Look, I don't like Metallica. I'm never going to like them, now, next week or even if you make this thread a trillion pages long. The answer is always going to be the same. It's not like it's my choice, I just don't like them. If I hear them I have to turn them off. You might like them, I understand that, but I'm never going to like them do YOU understand that? Yeah? Just grunt if you can't agree any other way.
I am the same with Queen
Same here with Guns'N'Roses. Classic rock radio here has discovered them... they're on the list with Skynyrd and Satisfaction as what will make me turn the radio off. A couple of years back, our local classic rock station was giving away tickets for a GNR show, and a younger co-worker was trying to win a pair. He knew I listened to metal most of the time in the shop and I guess figured it would be cool to go to a metal show with the Old Rocker Dude at work. I told him I would go only if I could smuggle in some eggs. I'll just wait for Axl to crank his yap wide open at the mike... SMACK!
I totally get the love for GnR to a point, because I remember hearing them for the first time when I was new to rock and metal and being mesmerised by Slash. But...gets old fast. So many bands of the era I prefer, and I don't like Axl's voice at all. But I also love shitty bands like Dokken and Ratt who are more of a "guilty pleasure" type thing, and I know Roses had better songwriting so...I dunno. Nothing brings me back to them. I prefer the rush of bands of the early nineties like Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Mother Love Bone...they have a rawer sound, but so much swag and passion.
To each their own.
Bands like Queen and Meat Loaf would fit in with my music collection, same as Metallica could Treeduck's, but for whatever reason they don't click with me
I get it as far as Ratt goes. I'm kinda famously anti-hair metal here, but the first couple of Crue and Ratt albums were definitely worth it. It's just that later albums and later hair bands quickly became a copy of a copy really quickly. Too cotton candy. Give me dirt and grease. I know Ozzy himself indulged a bit, but at least some of the songs still stood out.
Yeah... Seattle bands. I lived in the BFE district just outside Seattle, so we became inundated with local music. Fantastic time and era, coinciding with prime era thrash metal bands. What a time.
Forgot about Meatloaf. Their debut is the 1970's Cadillac Coupe De Ville of albums. In all of its full panoramic, cinescope, shag carpet glory. May it ever shine.
