best 'heavy metal' song ever.

especially when you're young, in your room, playing along with your epiphone les paul and cranked crate.

It seems like modern metal is going down the pipes. It's all become about playing with a distortion pedal cranked all the way up (I despise distortion pedals. Give me some nice warm overdrive any day) and as many notes as one can cram into a short space. The solos are no longer melodic.... actually very little of it is very melodic.

I've found a few bands that I liked but generally they don't make it because they're not extreme enough to fit for the modern metal heads, and they're too much for the general populace.

This is one I had hopes for taking off. Kind of harkens back to older metal. I like the solo; it's nothing fantastic, but well balanced and works to support the song. The riffs are solid... good stuff.

Thus far, I've not seen any signs of them becoming one of the 'big' bands.

Thing is, metal is such an amazingly diverse style of music, that it's not very useful to make such generalizations. It's a tree with nearly infinite branches, and just looking at the trunk misses a lot.

Sounds like Mollie Hatchet meets Judas Preist.....

one of my favorite branches . . .


I still find it hard to believe Johnny Cash would do a Trent Reznor song.

I'm more into the roots of metal.

Iron Butterfly, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson and Arthur Brown.

That was an incredible and sad song. About his diabetes but not entirely. I loved the shots of him as a younger man, peeping into the house where he was raised. Almost like video feedback of youth looking at youth further removed.

I'm not even sure what constitutes metal anymore. About two or three years ago, I went to Vintage Stock to pick up a CD from Disturbed. I looked in the 'Rock' category and they had zilch. I'm on my way towards the door when my wife asks a clerk and was informed that what I was looking for was in 'Metal'...

I agree. I think of this all as "metallic"

I could go on and on about all the reasons why I can't stand Judas Priest, it really would take awhile and probably bored the most of you. but I have to say when ever I blow through a stop sign or ride between the yellow lines down the middle of the road I love to cue up 'breaking the law' and play about 35 seconds of it in my head; breaking the law, breaking the law, breaking the law, breaking the law , breaking the law and then that wicked riff. the lyrics rank right up there with most JP songs, but I love that 35 seconds.
which is usually how long I break the law, break the law, break the law, break the law.breakthelaw

you know we've made a nice little playlist here, I kinda like opening up two tabs and using this thread as a jukebox, I hope that isn't breaking the rules, breaking the rules, breaking the rules.
