I have one of their albums. I used to listen to Jamiroquai waaay back when they first came out in 94 fo sho!

What's wrong with Swedish metal? I'm not an Opeth fan, I tend to like the darker stuff, but The Haunted, Arch Enemy, At the Gates, that's good stuff yo!

it's not just swedish heavy metal it is heavy metal in general. a horrible genre no dynamics in the music, no melody, just fvcking noise and screaming.

Well H.E. lay down some of the bands you like.

Mastodon, the only album I have by them is Leviathan. Pretty good overall.

well then you clearly didn't listen to the opeth stuff, it's far from lacking rhythm and just screaming etc. plus that is the same troll as i have inflicted on you when you classify an entire genre by the annoying commercial aspects of it.

yea i like some of their stuff, that is the overkill of rhythm though, he pen would probably hate that too. that band is created for drummers to have a hard on.

oh i also love sleepytime gorilla museum, that would classify as post metal i guess.

Deke has got it right with The Stooges avatar. Funhouse is the only album you need if you want to hear rock and roll at it's finest. My friend recently wrote a book about the Detroit hardcore/punk scene.

Lol sorry but this sentence made me feel old, and I am in my mid 20's. Every time I hear someone use that kind of phrase I think of this:

can't throw rocks without a tree to hide behind, heres my recent most played on my i-tunes:

Pygmy Shrews - noise punk from brooklyn

Exclaim - japanese hardcore circa mid 90's

Prurient - brutal power electronics

Grunt - see above and the posted video

Whitehouse - see above

Christian Death - "death rock" i guess, CD were just a punk band with dark overtones as far as i'm concerned

Wire - post punk legends

The Dicks - arguably the best band from texas

Throbbing Gristle - industrial introduction

Twin Stumps - punishing noise rock from brooklyn

only one i could comment on is wire and they get a big meh.

but i'm sure the above song is better than anything any of those bands have done and it was a bside.

H.E. you should check out Pink Flag by Wire. Throbbing Gristle is great if you want to see the roots of Industrial Music. Hey, Deke, are you into stuff like D.O.A., Current 93, Coil and Destroy All Monsters.

Everyone should check out the Japanese band Ghost if they want to check out some good stuff.
