So what do you think is the worst Metal album in recent times?

No one will ever top the suckage of St. Anger. At least IDI had some listenable tracks like Existo-Vulgore.

Of the albums I've heard off that list, St. Anger is the worst. Of the albums I've heard off ANY list, St. Anger is the worst. I remember how after buying that album, my buddies and I sat around drinking beer and just ripping the shit out of everything about it. There are absolutely no redeeming qualities about it. Even if the production wasn't completely shit, the music is. My lifestyle determines my deathstyle? Fuck you Kirk, why are you writing lyrics? You haven't even written a good guitar solo since 1986.

These recent 'crab-core' are much worse.

St. Anger, I maintain, needed to be made. Its not good, but Metallica needed to make that ecord to prevent total implosion.

Most of these records are, if nothing else, honest. And I will take an honest bad record over a trendy one anyway.

In hindsight, that is the route I should have taken, but once you hit enter, there's no going back.

And yes, the New Haunted is fucking terrible, but I limited it down to 10.

Worst is something I probably haven't heard, so I went for most disappointing.

That would be the terribad Cryptopsy album. It was worse than St. Anger and more disappointing because I honestly don't see how people could have had much expectation from Metallica at that point in time. They were pretty much my favorite band at the time and I still thought it was gonna be lame.

For disappointing, I'd actually go for Municipal Waste's Massive Aggressive (unless some other abomination is escaping my mind right now.)
The album isn't bad, and is certainly better than the ones listed, but Jesus Christ was that disappointing. The winning streak of Waste Em All-Art of Partying made me think they could do no wrong. Well, they did. And that was making a boring forgettable retro thrash album.
Metallica and Morbid Angel aren't really disappointing to me because it's not like I'd actually expect a great album. Did I think it would be Radikult bad? No, but I had already stopped giving a shit about Morbid Angel years before I was born.

And Dark Funeral were great.

MPF
06-19-2011, 11:55 PM
I can see that with Municipal Wate, even though I love Massive Aggressive. My old singer in Shattered says the same thing about how disappointing it was to him. But where else you would you get the great line of "This next song will titty fuck your soul." if it wasn't for Thrashin Of The Christ?

Hahaha

I thought we were sticking to recent times.

If we are talking about big disappointments in recent times, one that was a major disappointment for me, that I haven't seen mentioned yet, was We Are The Void by Dark Tranquillity. I thought that album was a terrible letdown following up Fiction.

Also, Dissection's Reinkaos. Goddamn that was a fucking disappointment.

I totally forgot about We Are The Void, I only liked the Fatalist. It's very rare for me to say that the only good song on an album is the single.

I didn't get a Dark Tranquillity vibe from it. Heaviness was quickly dismantled by keyboards. It seemed too radio-friendly.

That and lazy songwriting.

DEFINITELY not Morbid Angel. It's not really a sellout record a la Saint Anger or The Unspoken King, because the type of music they experimented with...well, it isn't really that popular anymore. Is it a good record? I guess that depends mostly on if you are familiar at all with Morbid Angel (or not, I haven't listened to it all the way through yet :hecho: )

I definitely don't think a band that experiments with their sound and then has an album no one really necessarily means that's a "bad" album, unless you can judge that album separately from the rest of the band's discography. And in that respect, I find The Unspoken King unfathomably more offensive than St. Anger ever was.

But honestly? If I'm going to choose a band for putting out a bad album that isn't trendy (AKA I'm not going to pick Attack Attack, Asking Alexandria, etc.) and does nothing to advance themselves as musicians, I have got to put Whitechapel up.

Yeah and some new covers. Technically it's not a new release but it's a full length album. I actually like all the songs he covered but he murdered every one. This entire cd is unlistenable.

Is St. Anger even considered an album? I don't know what they were trying to accomplish with that, it sounded like my crappy High School bands demo CD... just not as good.

At least the new Morbid Angel had some moments that make you laugh and facepalm, St. Anger just.... just no.

If I have to vote just off this list, it's a no-brainer. The new Queensryche is a Godawful piece of shit that sounds like a Jonas Brothers album. Has anyone heard this:

I'd take Frantic by itself over this entire piece of shit album. As bad as the drums sound is on St. Anger at least it has guitars on it.

I got to hear the new Morbid Angel last night. While I can see why purists are shitting all over it I have to admit that I like it. I'm a bit more open minded than some people. The only song I truly hated was the second to last song Radikult or whatever.

People should be used to disappointment from Morbid Angel by this point. Everyone hated Formulas Fatal to the Flesh when it came out (probably my favorite MA album), then there was Heritic which was by far way worst than the new one, then there's the new one.

There are actually some great discs on that list. Some of the bands listed are obviously not even remotely metal (Billy Squier?). Manks will love seeing Andrew WK at number 10 with this quote: "It's Danzig for jocks and fratboys"

For the poll, I'd have to say either The Unspoken King or Illud Divinum Insanus, solely because (as someone said before) no one really expected Metallica to have some awesome comeback record, and they needed to make it so they wouldn't split up. Illud was the "return of David Vincent" and Unspoken was essentially a cover band ruining Cryptopsy's good name. I guess the same argument can be made for Sounds Of A Playground fading, but I'd much rather listen to radio bullshit than awful deathcore with awesome drumming.

07-15-2011, 06:34 AM
Looking at it in terms of the worst album, not the most disappointing album or the biggest letdown, I would have to say The Unspoken King is tied with St. Anger. There are literally no redeeming qualities to either of them in my opinion. Going beyond the poll, I would say that everything I've heard from every nth generation derivatives of whatever-core that have trended recently, with the exception of a few of the more technical deathcore bands, is on the same level of total worthlessness.
