It sounds like something you tell a 3 year old before you let them go to the playground.

Whatever merits you think Dio may have, that shit is just unforgiveable.
I agree completely.

I had an interesting discussion with some of the guys from our band the other day. I have leaked copies of the new "Sabbath" songs with Dio ("When The Devil Cried, "Ear in the Wall," and "Shadow of the Wind".) The song titles say it all, but what I wonder is this: Why does somebody like Dio, or Halford, who are both over 50 and have traveled the world have so little to write about? We're talking about people that have probably met and talked to more people then we can imagine. They've spent their whole lives traveling the world and the best they can do is write about the devil and Lochness.

I find that very tragic.

Meanwhile, why is the word "gay" even a part of this discussion?

Well when you're in a thread title "Worst music ever," its definitely gonna come up in conversation. Still, I agree, that's gay.

Yeah we all got hearts made of metal,
and are blood is hot molten rock,
and if I don't hear the sound of metal I go into shock!
I guess there's two kinds of people in this world..........those who listen to Manowar's Battle Hymns and think that's what metal means, and those who listen to Exodus' Metal Command.

FISTS ARE IN THE AIR
BANGING EVERYWHERE
THRASHING TO THE SOUND
FACES MELTED DOWN
ITS TIME TO FIGHT, FOR METAL TONIGHT
'BANGERS TAKE YOUR STAND
AND OBEY!
OUR METAL COMMAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Dunno about you but for me that's what metal means. Maybe you identify true metal with men in tights and loincloths prancing around about kings and dragons with all sorts of pomp and circumstance; I identify true metal with crazy drunk motherfuckers in black jeans and worn-out sleeveless band shirts spewing out pure primal destruction. You wanna talk dedication? They didn't just sing about it or write music about it, they were fucking out for blood to their core, while those Manowar sissies sat around lifting weights out and playing D&D. When its your way of life entirely, thats dedication to me, and they're still out there doing it, albeit without the mighty Paul Baloff, rust in pieces Therefore I chose Exodus as the band to represent best what pure metal is about.

So no, for me Dio is not exactly the embodiment of metal, but he is still an icon and a legend.

And ECW, excellent excellent excellent point you made.

To me, metal is Black Sabbath, because without them, there wouldn't be a metal.
