doomsday has much more inspired guitarwork than anthems imo

You know what will survive? A band like Edguy or Dream Theater that has uniqueness and talent and inspiration in every album and every song . . . not some shitty metalcore band that sounds like all the rest.

btw what does the sentence "This thread started out on Nu (Rob) and Anthrax (thread)" mean?

yes, a band called trivium


every other album by every other metalcore band that i have heard has sounded almost exactly the same to me . . . at least bodom still has a unique sound
