I would like to bring up the opposite in of the argument, and say that Dragonforce plays enough solos so other bands don't have to. Jesus, go kill yourself, everyone in that band (and ZP).

and that stuff should be the 10% exception to the rule...not the rule itself.

Wolves in the Throne Room, at least live, do.

Sunn O))) is an awesome metal(ish) band that doesnt have drums.

...and I can't think of any DF songs that are ruined by solos, so I think they are just fine.

With the obvious exceptions, that's just proof that rock music doesn't give a shit about Bass players.

I'm pretty sure most of Agoraphobic Nosebleed's stuff uses a drum machine.

Alright, way too much went on here while I was at work - so to just make the two main points I want to:

1) The Crimson Idol is "repetitive" for a reason. It is a concept album. The "repetition" you people are bitching about are recurring musical themes. That's why songs have sections borrowed from one another, and when you piece it together with the story it all makes sense.
It's not even a legitimate comment when you realize that most of WASP's albums (especially every one following The Crimson Idol), is just about as repetitive but for no gain whatsoever. I think in terms of musical themes and story building through music - "The Crimson Idol" "got" it the way 95% of all bands who have ever made a concept album didn't. I think it is about 3,000 miles ahead of every other WASP album, including the overrated Headless Children.

2) @ Cameron: Your point was irrelevant because I never said I disliked Run to the Hills BECAUSE it is popular. I dislike it because it's a bad song. If a song not among Maiden's worst songs (at the very least, of the golden era) had been their big "hit", you wouldn't hear me bitching. I have no problem embracing a song when it WAS a hit, I just have a problem with shitty songs becoming hits and giving people a false impression of the band.

Amen. Seriously, among my 5 most hated bands of all-time, and it has nothing to do with the whole "Durr grunge killed metal" crap.

Plus 99% of cybergrind, noisecore etc. bands and all sorts of 1 man bands spanning tons of genres, like Satanic Warmaster and Toxic Holocaust.

Ill do my top bands:

PanterA: Good friends and a bottle of pills, Im rarely in the mood for most of reinventing the steel too.

Slayer: About half of Diabolus in Musica, and I wouldnt be shouting for much off Christ Illusion at any of their shows either.

Lamb of God: Not much really, nothin i hate by them!

Slipknot: Again noth much from them either.


pretty straight forward, no surprises, make of it what you will.
