Never heard of any of them.

Are they any good?

Slayer's first five albums are still good.
They could stand to be a bit more Satanic though.

No. No they're not.

Thing is, right. I can't stand the pantomime macabre about slipknot.
but on an individual basis, if you don't listen to lyrics like I don't some of the racket is prang-on in a kind of mindless oblivion headbang mosh way. Also their drummer is considered to be one of the best (technical prowess if not subtlety of expression) by other drummers -make of that what you will- but I have one track by them on my phone. Mind you I also have 2 albums by The Buggles so....

Maybe it's an age thing
But I would never disparage Slayer, Sepultura or to an extent System Of A Down (although Serj's solo stuff is miles better).

But yeah, the rest is late-90s bollocks-core.

seconded for System of A Down

Although I agree the majority of those bands are shit,
The attitude of "I don't like it anymore so everyone else should agree with me that it's shit" is more childish than any music genre.

I didn't say everyone else should agree with me..
I have friends who are still big fans of this dross and I don't even patronise them for it - I'm happy to live and let live.

If someone wants to listen to Radio One all day, or exist solely on mashed apple on toast, that's fine with me.

I personally can't abide it anymore.

edit: although I do find it a little embarrassing and awkward trying to hold a conversation about food with someone who claims to be a food aficionado simply because they've eaten every variety of baby food in the supermarket, and still screws their face up when mummy shows them Stilton cheese. Erm, if you know what I mean..

Mashed Apple on toast.
That sounds fucking delish!

No Win Pug, you don't understand.
Because he went gay, or his boyfriend burnt all his Slayer T-shirts, now we're not allowed to like them anymore either.
That's how it works.
Well, in his tiny denty brain anyway.

You're allowed to like Slayer okay?
..and so are the many homosexual Slayer fans.
Your posts alone prove that you have the mindset of a sixteen year old, but guess what? - that's allowed too! You should seriously consider what a bell end you sound like though when you call people 'gay' for not liking your favourite band.

Yeah, it's ok for you to come out of your closet now. It's not actually illegal for you to be gay anymore.
Hoping that I'm only 16 in your gay fantasies though, that's just wrong. And you should be ashamed of yourself. NONCE.

okay :-)

When it comes to SLAYER, by 'Grown out of' I take it you mean 'Went gay'.
You massive bummer.

Anybody that doesn't like Slayer spends all their free time lifting shirts and rimming bumholes, this has been scientifically proven.

Seen almost all of the above, most were excellent
Spineshank were bollocks, though.

WP is correct about you.
(, Tue 30 Jul 2013, 9:35, closed)
If you say so AA..
You either didn't read my response to WP, or you're offended because I don't share your taste in pop music.
If you can form an opinion of your own you're entitled to it.
You're also entitled to like whatever band/soft drink/brand of guitar strings that Kerrang magazine/TV tells you to like- I really don't mind.
I'm personally very relieved that I grew out of an awkward, 'pretending to appreciate metal because I thought it made me seem different and kept my parents out of my way' stage that EVERYONE goes through to some extent, in my early twenties- and developed the self-awareness to make my own decisions about music (and life). This is something that most people who've reached this stage in their life can relate to, and those who haven't, can't.

edit: You'll probably read this and assume my use of the words 'you' and 'you're' refer to you specifically. They don't.

If you're going to use phrases like 'amazeballs' these days
I'd imagine you were actually less of a ballbag back then.
(, Wed 31 Jul 2013, 2:44, closed)
I think I was the same amount of ballbag
But I daresay I had a lot more time for idiots back then
