Hmm why does slipknot suck? I used to listen to Slipknot in high school and I've come to realize just how dull and cliche they are. Their lyrics are cookie cutter teen angst. Their music borders on being heavy, but keeps it safe enough not to alienate listeners. I think their music (by nu-metal standards) was good enough to stand on its own without needing the masks, but that's just my oppinion. It only made them look more juvenile. Their isn't anything extreme about Slipknot or it's music. They only appear to be extreme when compared to their nu-metal peers - let alone emo.

Compare:

Slipknot -

Marduk -

Cryptopsy -

The last one was a Grindcore band, a form of music that Slipknot is notorious for name dropping and comparing itself to - do you see a resemblance? I sure don't. Hell, they have - what - 2,3 percussionists? That can't even sound like one black metal or grindcore drummer? I judge Slipknot so harshly because of all the shit they've talked in the past about how heavy and extreme they are (which is why I use heavy and extremem music as a comparison).

On Poison the Well - Hadn't heard of them so I listened to a bunch of their songs on youtube. Meh so so. Kinda hit and miss. Not my thing, but decent enough for what it is I suppose. I get the impression their older stuff was much heavier, but that's just at a glance. They remind of alot of the local bands I used to see around in the late 90s. The song "Zombies Are Good For Your Health" seems to be pretty good.

Maybe because one of them uses a battle axe? I don't consider them the kings but I would like to hear an explanation...please? Oh and Mr. Lone Wolf, sir, Bullet For My Vallentine is the emo kids trying to play heavy metal. I agree with Mauz, sorry dude, but laughter and sadness came from me by watching those youtube vids...

anyone listen to poison the well???


I have a Poison the Well 7"--I believe the song is "Turn Down Benjamin", which is a decent song (though I like the B-Side, "Pieces of You in Me", much better). That's about all I have heard from them.

Another (relatively) recent Metal(-ish) band I like is The Locust. I would suppose one might classify them as screamo, but I'm really not sure.

...I don't mean to bump but if the claim of kings of metal goes to Manowar then I would like to take their award away because no one came up with the reason why they are kings. It will be reserved for a better group...

Because if you look up Metal in a dictionary you will see Manowar staring back into your soul. If you can't find them in your dictionary, your dictionary is not metal enough to be blessed with their presence.



Check out these album covers - Metal through and through.



And finally, the difinitive proof, the album were they boldy explain to the world just why they're the Kings of Metal. Have you ever heard of any other whelp of a band claiming to be the Kings of Metal - let alone releasing an album dedicated to the subject? Of course not, because they know full well the rightfull Kings of Metal Manowar would crush them!

yea i agree...whats with the masks? maybe without the masks theyre tolerable but the masks just makes them childish. like theyre trying to hard to be "original"..they took the whole mask thing to the extreme as well.
slipknots music has never been anything outstanding. its always be horrifically safe. nothing that really makes an impression. so thats why i dont like them. why should i like something thats just mildly tolerable? theres enough crap music around thanks.
