Never ever EVER listen to Cold Lake.  The band themselves have admitted it was a debacle that they are still unsure why they made it.
Everything else is good, though.  Not so much a fan of Monotheist, but it's ok.  Into the Pandemonium and the album and ep's before are still their best, imo.
2  Forum / General Discussions / I Saw a Pic of THE FUNNIEST Tattoo Ever! on: September 02, 2007, 07:17:46 am
Funniest pic I ever saw of a tat was about six pictures this guy had taken after his junk was tatted up like a dragon.  The head was pierced, and it went all the way around.  I mean ALL the way around, like to his asshole, where goblins were poking.  It has swirling smoke and dead trees in it too.  It was really hysterical that someone would mock their body by doing that, imo.
If someone wants the pics, I might be able to find them still.  Lemme know.

Wizzard - Iron, Steel, Metal
Desaster - Metallized Blood
Manowar - The Gods Made Heavy Metal
Dream Evil - The Book of Heavy Metal

My pick would be the Desaster song, if I had to pick one.  Also a good one that isn't "metal" based...  Twisted Sister - Burn in Hell.
But that's just me.

I used to live in Mississippi.  In MS, there was more damage, more lives lost, more homeless, and more white people, and it is STILL not rebuilt.  So New Orleans being "damaged" still is not because people there are a certain ethnicity.  It is because the government just likes to take IN money, not send any OUT.
And for the record, everyone who says New Orleans got hit hard is a fucking liar.  New Orleans just got a little wet, whereas Bay St. Louis, MS, is no longer on the map.  Many other towns and cities have huge sections torn out of it, and the people that survived were told to simply "move inland."

I'll see anything Crowley related, even if he was a bit mad.
And I've never seen a Rob Zombie movie that didn't bore me to tears, for the record.  I love horror, but all the ones I've seen from him were real snoozefests.

I'm not about to let those barbic assholes take over my cowboy sht.

"Anarchists," as you call them (which is not the right term at all), pretty much founded metal.  And "cowboy shit" is more country bumpkin garbage than anything metal.  Considering all the genres of metal that don't have anything to do with "cowboy shit," I'd re-evaluate your stand on the basic ideology asap if I were you.  It might keep you from being a hypocrite.

Wrong. Anarchists founded Punk.  Metal was founded by a group of christians sharing with the world what they found to be problems in a dark way.  These christians are more popularly known as Black Sabbath, and incase you didn't know, they're very popular and have sold millions of records world wide because people wanted to listen to them. Which, if Metal isn't supposed to be commercial, as you seem to believe, ruins the point.

If you notice, I put anarchists in quotes and said it was the wrong term.  Meaning, I said anarchy has little/nothing to do with metal, let alone death metal.  I was using his terminology to simplify.  You should learn to read.
And Black Sabbath has become a product, almost as bad as Osbourne himself.  They never really "founded" metal, just made it popular.  There were others, some from before them.  People give them too much credit.

99.5% of the people on this forum now hate u.

99.5% on this site are idiots.

those guys just happen to be in 2 of the most popular bands. that doesn't mean they are the best. i personally feel like both of them are talented and have recognizable styles and sound. that scores high on my gamecard. when it comes down to it though, there are a lot of guys that could blow them out of the water, especially zakk.

VERY well said.  Just because a lot of people like them doesn't mean they're that great.  It just means the other guys didn't get lucky and get the exposure like the popular ones did.
Second point, to ZombieMushmouth or whatever your name was... so I have to play an instrument to be able to tell if someone is good or bad at it?  Well I don't play instruments, I write and make short films.  Tell me, Mushmouth, do you say whether or not a movie is good?  Cause if so, and you say one is bad, then by your definition you are a whiny wannabe who is "jealous."  See now why your approach to the subject is pointless?  If all we're supposed to comment on is what we do, then why even have public forums at all?
Oh, and as for the guy who said everybody hates me... you seem to be confusing me with someone who has a flying shit to give.  ::animatedlaugh

I think we're getting a little bit away from the debate on mainstream vs. underground with the talk of society embracing a subculture.  I'm going to give an example of what I dislike about "mainstream music" being a whore for the American dollar that might make my stance a bit more clear.
There was a band a friend of mine listened to, was not metal even in the slightest.  I honestly forget the name.  Anyway, the record company came to them before the cd was released and said "Our advertisers want you to change these lyrics because they don't approve and feel they won't be able to sell products this way.  Since they are sinking in millions, you have to change it right now."  The artist (and I use that term mockingly here) knuckled under, compromising their artistic integrity in order to put out a product.
I'm all for changing what you play or write about, WHEN and ONLY WHEN it is your idea.  If you do it just because some suit with a cigar says you have to, that's whoring yourself out for the almighty dollar.  And that happens far, far too often in radio-friendly music.  So, with a few exceptions, I avoid those circles almost entirely.  I don't think I've even seen mtv in over 8 years because of people who do this type of thing.

SwitchKiller said: "Make up your minds, people. What do you want, a society that embraces Metal or one that disowns it. Personally, I prefer one that actually enjoys listening to good music anywhere."

That's just it, they (and I) kinda want metal to be it's own society...like Pantera brand potato chips and crap like that...

Metal already has it's own society, just going to Wacken or any other huge Metal show. It is a brotherhood as well as a society. I'm talking about THAT society itself being accepted by normal society.  Personally, I'd rather have someone say "Oh shit, you're a Metalhead. Awesome." Than "Oh shit, you're a metal head. Go away you satanist pig!"

Why does it have to be black and white, either or?  I'm all for people accepting that I listen to metal, but saying that "society should embrace it" is a bit different.  If people don't like it, oh well, no skin off my ass.  But they shouldn't have to join up if they don't want to.  If we force them to accept the brotherhood of it, then we're no better than the Christians or Nazis, who did that all the time.

I've also got a booklet of burns, but those that are worth keeping are being replaced by purchased cds as I can afford them.  The ones I determine not worth keeping I throw out.
So you've thrown away Fallout Boy and N'Sync? ::finger

I never had Fallout Boy.
As for the N'Sync... I buy those right away!  No need to sample first, I can't get my cheesy boy band fix in ever!  ZOMG, Menudo FTW!
Oh wait, no.  I'm wrong.

Darkest_of_Nights said: i still don't understand why people have such a big problem with "mainstream" metal as they call it...omg ..it was put on the radio...how horrible is that...i cannot listen to that band any more, they have disowned all of their fans!!! .....sad...but...it would be sweet to go grocery shoppin with pantera, and metallica and all my other bands....i think i might actually spend more than 20 minutes shopping if it was like that.::sinister

You completely misunderstand the idea.  It's not that other people listen to it.  It's not that it is popular.  It's that it is being used to sell coke and doritos, which is an important part of capitalism yes, but metal needs to be kept completely out of that equation.  I have no problem with listening to things like Burzum on pandora.com, which is a mainstream net radio site with no commercials, but if I saw a Mayhem concert on tv, brought to you by Juicy Juice, I'd really have to kill someone.
See the difference?

SATAN said: this thread is kinda irrelevant. i know people that work night stock. after a certain time, they play whatever music they want to. teh dood probably just walked in during that time. they just program it to play their songs around the commercials.

No, see, that's the thing.  I asked one of the guys stocking who put on the metal, and he said "That's one of the store's stations.  We can't play anything but what they let us, it's on a closed system."  So they just sometimes play that stuff at night.
In answer to another question here, it was in a pretty decently sized Texas super-store chain called Fiesta.  I realize it makes a difference, but I was too tired to remember to mention it this morning.
