so i was posting on a philly forum earlier today about the new Lamb Of God record. I've never been a huge fan of this band to begin with but as a pretty casual observer of metal I feel that i have discernable enough taste to throw in my 2 cents.

so this is what i said about the new lamb of god.

1. It's redneck garbage.
2. Musically, compared to their other material (Namely their crowning achievment as a band, New American Gospel) it is far less advanced.
3. There is absolutely zero punch to this record, it feels like im listening to a computer growl at me.
4. There is a fucking song titled "Redneck"
5. There is a lyric from said song that goes "THIS IS A MOTHERFUCKIN INVITATION"....yea sure.

I feel like i should be riding a dirtbike when i listen to this shit.

A couple replies later i get the resident metal head chiming in. (The singer of the philly metal band, The Divining if anyone is familiar, horrible horrible shit)

He says:
"Sacrament is their best cd no doubts about it and if they we're so good during the btp/gospel era how come they didnt get the same attention as they did for the last 3 records hmmmm maybe because this shit is 1000 times better than burn the priest that cd is just part for part and yea theyre all good parts but no structure and if you think its stupid for a metal band to have lyrics about gettin drunk,partying and being a redneck than obviously you dont like real metal suck my cock best band ever."

I rest my case.



I also had someone chime in saying "What's wrong with riding a dirtbike?"

i'm going to Jaxx to see Arsis tonight. I'm totally stoked for the show, but totally unstoked for all the greasy metalheads.

Nevertheless, I think Lamb of God kinda sucks. As The Palaces Burn was okay, and that song "Redneck" sounds completely defanged and nu-metally. That guy's argument was BS because it doesn't take into account major label marketing and/or slick production, which was obviously good enough to fool this simpleton.

long and short but at one point all of them had long hair.

Here is a select few of them that are in a band called Tyranis

Is it homophobic to ask a homosexual to "suck your cock" as an insult? I mean the idea is it's supposed to be something your not into and therefore its degrading the person upon which you are heeping your scorn. However if the person who you are trying to piss off loves the meatstaff would've the propper insult be "eat my cooch?" Just wondering.

Also the new Lamb of God is pretty lame. I loved the last one but this one feels like Drowning Pool with blast beats.

If Lamb of God left off "Redneck" and the song right after it, the new one would be crankin', but those two songs just leave a real sour taste. Sadly, I'm sure they'll become the band's two most popular songs...

lamb of god is kinda talented, but they are the most boring metal band I have ever heard.

I can't sit through more than 2 of their songs in a row


I like the Divining, sucks the guy's a douche

I hate when people make general sweeping comments about a group of people.

pretty funny, but you could get an asinine response like this from any fanboy, regardless of the genre.

Yep. I was having this conversation last night with my roommate. He made a comment about homeless people in Boulder (someone was in close proximity with him) and how they are worse than other places because they actually talk to you rather than just hold a sign. I was drunk on a lot of red wine and ranted for a good while, since I come in contact with these people everyday because of my job. Some are fucked up (drugs or mentally) but others are just down on their luck.

Metalheads are the same. Some cool, some idiotic.

Alright, being myself a "metalhead" I decided to throw my own 2 cents in.

Like somebody said above me, any genre of music has some complete dumbasses for fans. As for metal, alot of them just happen to be elitists as well.

As for the new lamb of god album, it's alright. I've been a huge fan of them for years, and this album just doesn't really wow me. For the people who wonder what there is to like about this band, for me it's about the riffs - they've developed a very distinct style which I dig, the drumming - sure he uses a crapload of double bass but his fills and cymbal work are fantastic, and I know it's definitely an acquired taste but Randy has some beastly vocals.


Anyways, I'm far more impressed with Mastodon's latest album than Sacrament.

i'm stok-diddly-oked for that record. Just watching the drum tracking video alone on their website made me start salivating in anticipation.

I'm pretty sure the worst mastodon album should impress more than the best lamb of god.

For me it depends on the mood I'm in.

check out their myspace page ( www.myspace.com/mastodon ) for 2 new delicious tracks.

Yeah, Sacrament is a little lacking...no total stand-out tracks like from the last 2 records...I think my favorite style of theirs is circa As The Palaces Burn.

I think Burn The Priest/New American Gospel stuff SUCKS.

I'm kinda concerned that there were metalheads lurking on the forum this entire time. What other threads will bring lurkers out of the woodwork?
