Buy that stuff when it comes out, dont download it like fags, show your support for true death metal. Support Death Metal everyway you can. or would rather have gay core have better sales

Core bands will probably have better sales no matter what since it's more mainstream.


Not sure if I would buy the new CC album, maybe used.

Like hell I'm buying Evisceration Plague, Cannibal Corpse is the most overrated and generic death metal band ever. Bloodoath on the other hand I'll buy, sure Suffocation is a bit overrated but they are miles better than Cannibal Corpse.
And while where on the topic, I'm sure many people here are dedicated fans who buy their music.

Suffocation albums have been dull since they got back together and Cannibal Corpse haven´t released anything worth owning since ´Eaten Back to Life´. I have more important things to spend my money on.

Gonna be buying both when they come out man. I always buy metal CDs there isn't really any excuse for only downloading them. "I can't afford to buy metal CDs!" Unless you're living far below the poverty line (in which case you probably can't afford a decent Internet connection to download stuff anyway) that's a shit excuse, just get a fucking job and save up.

Don't worry, I won't download it or buy it. Cannibal Corpse gets more sells than they deserve anyway. Same goes for Suffocation.

I download CDs, but I buy the ones I like, or the ones I'm already assured I will like. I think downloading is a great thing for unknown bands to get their music out to people, since anyone can get it. Bands also get most of their profit from concerts and merchandise and at least I don't know a way to download a t-shirt.

Same here. I always buy CDs and whatnot. I think it's so much better owning the actual CD than some crappy download.

FALSE. Suffocation is easily one of the greatest death metal bands ever. That said, it's true that their latest albums haven't been quite as good as their material before they broke up, so I'll wait and see how this next album is before buying it. I have heard various rumors, though, that are encouraging. As for Cannibal Corpse, I will not be buying their new CD. They've released too much material already.

I agree that the original cds are much better than a folder in the computer, but I download a lot, mainly to know about the band sound and stuff, if I like the album, I'll buy it, if I have the money. I have a decent internet conection because here in my country is not really expensive, I don't live under the line of poverty, but I have 2 kids and not a great salary, and cds here costs a lot, so, that beng said, I think that "I can't afford to by metal cds" is not an excuse but a reality. Maybe you are rich, maybe yo have nothing else than metal cds to spend your money, but that is your reality, not mine.

Sub par riffing, boring song structure, overuse of blast beats, uninspired vocals, niggers.. You act like I am the only person who doesn't like suffocation. I'm sure their are plenty of people who find them overrated. They probably aren't the most overrated death metal band, but they are quite overrated.

You're wrong on every count. Whatever, you're entitled to your opinion, no matter how wrong it is. I know you're not the only one who holds that opinion, but it's still extremely illogical. Regardless, I'm not going to argue with someone who would criticize a band for having 'niggers' in it.

You know, just because of this funny yet not-meant-to-be-humorous post you made, I will download the albums despite not having any real desire to listen to them just to spite you for even making a thread like this.

The niggers thing was a joke. I honestly could care less. My opinion is not "wrong" either.

Listening to Effigy Of The Forgotten right now. Probably their best album. Clearly not worth more than 80% though.

@ thomash: Yeah I definitely don't care at all for Suffocation. You can kid all you want, but the fact is that we all have different opinions. So you got offended. Boohoo. Grow up.

Suffocation aren't so much overrated as they are appreciated for the wrong reasons.

I intend to do the same, and add the injury of emailing the .rars to the OP thrice a day for a month.

You're still a dumbass for even bringing it up. It's not even remotely amusing or humorous.

I'm surprised this thread has lasted as long as it has... but I don't see the problem with downloading first before buying; that's what I always do at least. I support bands however I can, but it's fairly dumb to think that just cuz we all start buying the CDs then -core will be less popular.

Both bands are overrated, indeed. I've got more important things to buy currently.

As for older stuff though, I don't mind the bands. My breeding the spawn cassette regularly comes with me when i'm on the road, along with my vile cassette since they're among two of my favorites as far as the cassettes I own, but lately I could care less for both bands.

Don't be a jackass. The fact is that black people are not very prominent in the extreme metal. Obviously it stands out when a band has not one but two black members. I'm sorry that seeing the word nigger makes you so upset.

Will I buy those albums specifically? No. At least, not unless I become a fan of those bands at some point. Do I spend most of my disposable income buying genuine CDs and DVDs and refusing to pirate music as a matter of principle? Yes. It took me a while to reach this point, but I'm glad I have.
