I guess it just comes down to taste.

Case in point: I do like Decrepit Birth somewhat, and was reasonably entertained by their live show. I can't get into The Faceless on album - primarily due to the vocals - and when I saw them live (opening for Meshuggah), I was even less impressed. I was reasonably impressed by Brain Drill's most recent album, but the one before that was a little mechanical, I thought. So in short, my opinions regarding tech death are all over the place. It depends on the band, and even on the particular album or show or point in their career.


EDIT: Necrophagist and Origin have always been awesome, though.

Open letter to tech death albums:

Either you are The Sound of Perseverance, or you suck.

RE: This thread.

Glad to see other people think that Vital Remains should be headlining. The fact that they're opening this show, thus forcing me to sit through a bunch of shitty ass bands, pisses me the fuck off.

Tech Death: This is a touchy subject because a lot of TD walks the line between good shit and wankery. I know a lot of people that view TSOP as wankery. I disagree, however I understand why they feel that way. A good technical DM album to get is Under A Stone With No Inscription by Anata. It's intense, yet induces headbanging.

Don't worry, it's an inside joke. Brian doesn't think Rush sucks...

I think that.
Not musically, but I want to commit random acts of violence every time I hear Geddy Lee's voice. It's the worst thing ever.
