    Metallica SUCKS BLACK COCK.
    If you want some good Thrash Metal listen to Testament or Vektor.

    Metallica is pussy Thrash for people who don’t like metal at all.

    metal:
    black sabbath, king crimson,swans, pink floyd, judas priest, jimi hendrix, led z,black flag, celtic frost
    metallica, megadeath, anthrax, slayer
    melvins,tool,godflesh,neurosis
    isis,old man gloom, agoraphobic nosebleed, shrinebiulder,wino, om, doomriders,sleep,zazobra, cave in
    emperor,immortal, darkthrone,
    and many more, the point of the true metal is that its influenced by one another. its a discipline.
    check out hydraheadrecords: aaron turner is doing a great job with metal todayy!
    metal is the constant influence of the heavy sound that is first instrumentally good, then vocals and other parts of the music come in to play. i fell in love with it and picked up the guitar since then and constantly listen so that i will be influenced as well. true metal is an attitude.

    parkway drive! best metal band of late up the aussies!!!!!

  10. you are all fags says:

    true metal has no bounderies or affilliation. if you feel empowered in your heart through the music then there should be no argument or list of the best. we all have our own list and no one will ever change your mind about what you love so shut the fuck up and realize we all kick ass!

    Someone mentioned Job for a Cowboy; Job for a Cowboy is maybe the worst I’ve ever heard. They sucked on the Gigantour.

    Metallica’s first four albums rule. Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer are musts in my book. Mastodon is awesome, though I couldn’t get into Crack the Skye. High on Fire rules, and their new album is really good.

    Early Burzum is fun, Unearth, Doomriders, Dillinger Escape Plan, Diamond Plate (resurrecting early thrash), Clutch, Chimera, Botch, Darkest Hour, Deafheaven, Wolvhammer, Wolves in the Throne Room. I also like Unsane, Trivium, Shadows Fall and the Sword a bit. I was into the late 90s stuff (Korn, Slipknot) but swore that off as it eventually almost steered me away from metal altogether.

    I just wan’t to say that the reason people give slipknot hell is not just as simple as “they don’t like them.” We trash Slipknot and bands like them because they have no musical talent to speak of. They learned basic guitar playing and how to be commercial and took the easy way to popularity. I play guitar easily four hours a day, I study music, I know every facet of the instrument, and unlike Slipnkot I can tell you the relative minor of G , which is E by the way, and know the meaning of the word counterpoint. But what really makes most people mad is watching slipknot sell craptons of records from playing repetitive, mindless, bull**** while artists like Dream Theater and Steve Vai who are masters at crafting beautiful music and have made the study of music their whole existence are stuck in theaters and grabbing second bill to moronic pop star idiots.

    As far as my favorite metal bands out right now DT, Vai, Rush, A7X, Coheed & Cambria. Just to name a few.
