The metal thread

Postby randomtom » Fri 10 Oct, 2008 3:16 pm

just wondering how many steve show devotees are a fan or metal in all its various guises, i.e. death metal, doom metal, black metal, heavy metal, sludge metal, cyber metal and blah blah i could go on.
peace

I'm a casual fan of metal (but not a Steve Show devotee).

Metallica
Guns n Roses
Killswitch Engage
SOAD (only Toxicity)

Might pick up The Blackening by Machine Head soon. I like what I'm hearing from them.

I like metal.

Bands I like are wide ranging and varied. From Anthrax to Merzbow.

**Edit**
I forgot to add, the last album I bought was the latest from 5ive.

good to see that the steve show fans appreciate an underrated genre in the public opinion, and foodage you should definitely get the blackening its an amazing album but their best is their first album which if you haven't already heard it its called "davidian" its absolutely incredible, a blueprint for heavy metal you could say so i'd recommend that over the blackening if your just getting in to them

Their first album was actually called "Burn My Eyes" and it was released in 1994, as it was released just before I started secondary school.

Davidian was the first track from that album.

SOAD only. I don't actively seek metal...I just listen to what falls in my lap and luckily for me SOAD did.
I've met Steve and Michelle.

I'll forever love Zeppelin and Sabbath, the forefathers of metal. and I'll take any Metallica up to ..And Justice for All. I don't know if Rage Against the Machine or System of a Down count as metal, but I really like them, too.
I'll be, uhh, I'll be 30 next month...this month, no, next month..where are we?

let freedom ring with a shotgun blllllaassssstttt!! incredible band machine head. burn my eyes is a blinder too. the burning red was the entry point for most 'young' machine head fans when that was released.

love opeth, metallica, isis, porcupine tree, at the drive in, deftones and i listen to steve show every week.

Yeah Zeppelin and Rage are two of my favourite bands. I just didn't list them because I don't really think of them as a metal bands.

nah, Zeppelin's definitely not metal, just heavily influential. It's obvious from my first post that I'm not much a fan of proper heavy metal.

Strongly recommend Deadwing and In Absentia - given a discography of 16 studio albums and several bootlegs, eps etc, its always best to start with only a couple!
