Chill out, dude. It's just that when I think heaviest shit ever, I tend to think either Gojira, Yob, or Meshuggah. Not Hatebreed.
I think you're misinterpreting me. I'm not flipping out or anything, just stating my honest opinion.
Like everyone is saying here, "heavy" is such a relative term that is different for every person. Someone might think Crowbar is the heaviest thing ever, or Sleep, or fucking Sunn O))). Meshuggah is definitely up there for me as one of the heaviest bands ever like you said, and Vacuity gives shit like Hatebreed a run for its money.
But "good" Hatebreed is unparalleled in my opinion. I don't wanna go into detail 'cause I'll take up the whole thread, but there's a hundred reasons I could list. It'll probably change in a month or something, but whatever. I just get annoyed when somebody else, especially younger than me, implies that I know nothing about the music I listen to. I'll be honest if I'm unsure (black metal, for example. I am so ignorant to that genre as a whole). But when it comes to "heavy", I know exactly what I'm talking about.
Don't wanna come off as an elitist or anything, I still luv u lincoln <3
