Props on the King Diamond though. That man is a genius.
So i'm an asshole elitist? JusT Kidding.

Lamb of God were very good live, but the same day Devildriver were far better. Their debut and Wrath are very good albums though.

King Diamond is a genius, and his theatrics are amazing, but i prefer him with Mercyful Fate.

Love those guys, came across them on a random album downloading spree and never looked back, they manage to have female vocals on every song but still stay heavy and not annoy me.

Kalmah ain't bad, and you're getting your melodic death metal bands confused; Petri Lindroos is the new vocalist of Ensiferum, and he's from Norther, which ain't a terrible band, either.

Victory Songs obviously wasn't as good as the s/t or Iron, but it was fucking good, and I definitely wasn't expecting that, between Jari leaving and Dragonheads.

No, you jerkoff. There is a stylistic difference between metalcore and other subgenres. The purpose of classifications like that is so that people can find what they like. I hate hardcore, so it's helpful for me to know what has hardcore influences. That's why there's death metal, melodic death metal, folk metal, industrial metal, doom metal, post-metal, etc. etc. etc., so that I don't have to sift through every fucking band ever just to find the stuff I like because some hippie had to be a jerk.

DevilDriver is better than Lamb of God at every step, and they still play into the same macho bullshit, but I guess if you aren't screaming constantly you don't get quite the attention.

Don't Break the Oath certainly is his crowning achievement, but Abigail, Fatal Portrait, "Them", and Conspiracy come damn close. It's not like I need to pick, though.

Anyway, I know we moved on from Megadeth, but I'm going to bring it back for a moment: Dave Mustaine says guitarist Chris Broderick is better than Marty Friedman.

This guy is like Tony Montana. I have never ever heard a guitar player this good. Sorry Marty, I try to keep you in the fans memory, but they are going to have a hard time once they hear Chris. I mean we all worked hard to get Chris to where he is right now, but nothing that I could have done, and I mean very little, if not zero was contributed by me. Chris is a genius, a virtuoso, a master, and I am the proudest I have ever been in my musical life right now.

Even Justis said, “He stomps Marty Friedman dad.” What a blessing to have such a cool son!!!
Given that MegaDave's songwriting certainly seems influenced by what guitarist he is working with at the time, this sounds promising. I might be setting myself up for disappointment, but the last three albums have been really good.

Don't worry dude, i just see you as an over opinionated, close minded metal purist... kinda like a catholic that claims to be accepting of all people but is quick to shit on and shut down anyone that disagrees with them. I can live with that, at least i'm open to other forms of metal other than those that fit your strict code. I like to think of you as a boy band fan that loves the Backstreet Boys but will flame anyone out for liking Nsync.

Calm down though, i'm not going to push my opinions on you as you seem to like doing to others. How you can call yourself a metal fan when you shit on a fair amount of the bands mentioned in this and other metal threads is beyond me but you keep rocking on there dude.

Thoughts on the new Adagio? I was very disapointed by it, which is very annoying because I had such high hopes after the last 2 albums.
