- Aside from his first 2 albums with Ozzy Osbourne & Pride and Glory, Zakk Wylde is absolutely awful.

- Lamb Of God is one of the most boring bands around that everyone seems to get raging boners over.

- Deep Purple is light years better than Led Zeppelin.

- Guns N Roses had one good album.

- Bruce Springsteen is terrible.

- So is Tom Morello.
Agreed x1000000000.

But I don't agree with the LOG bit at all. Also don't completely agree with Slayer.

When you listen to as much music as I do, you gotta look at every album as a band's first album, or else you will just hate everything that band does. Look at each album as it's own entity and not compare it to what they have done in the past. Appreciate a latest album for what it is, or hate it for what it is, not because of what lead to it. Otherwise you might miss something that is actually great just because it's not what you hold as their best.

But then again, that is just me.

Does this mean you're going to revisit "Stones Grow Her Name" and bump it up a couple notches?

Agree with Slayer and Pantera. But Death?

I mean, Death isn't even anywhere in my top 20 favorite death metal bands, I'm sure... but all of the bands that ARE in my top 20 wouldn't exist without Death.


Well, except for Necrophagia. They were kind of already doing their own thing before Death came along.

I don't understand why everyone creams themselves over "Seven Churches" by Possessed. Sure the music is ok, but other then that......

Partially because it's arguably the first death metal album and some people will always think first = best.

Wearing my Seven Churches shirt right now. That being said, fuck you all, it's awesome.

Real answer: Not even having to do with its time, that album is loaded with awesome and fast riffs.

It could happen. I( could also jump up in the air, magically grow wings and fly to heaven as well.

I don't like it because it's what they have become, I don't like it because I think it sucks. I saw them back in 2009 and they kicked ass. this album doesn't do that for me.

Baaaaah I think it's better than the last two albums before it.

Dying Fetus is one of the best death metal slam bands of all time.

Wrong, and his solo album is better than all three of those. Godly though those three are.

Don't know about "light years", but they're definitely better.
