Pantera post their rightfully-deleted-era were pretty cool for the most part. A good way to tell if someone's a lame, feels/pseudo-intellectual metalhead is by their opinion on post-power metal Pantera (do you prefer Agalloch? Opeth? :gay: :ah-ha: ). VDoP should have a lot wrong with it, but Phil's so charismatic and the guitar riffs just constantly work. To the haterz I would say: walk on home boy.

A better way to tell if someone is a poser is if they put down pantera's heavy metal days and raise up their groove metal days to an unwarranted degree as these both align with prevailing hipster positions: bashing glamtera for being glamorous even though they were actually a solid metal band and saying that groovetera was better than they were in order to spite imaginary armies of elitists.

CFH and VDoP both had pretty big helpings of proper heavy metal, as did far beyond driven... The glamtera I've heard has been pretty bad, a few power metal songs are ok but everything from jungle/magic/i am the night is pretty awful. Also, how is liking a band aligned with groove metal a "prevailing hipster position"? I accept your last point though and acknowledge that as a burn.

Or maybe I just don't like stupid music with an offensively shitty overall attitude? Get over yourself.

Caspian is a fan of this band, just sayin' and enough said. Yeah, call Opeth or Agalloch gay, everyone knows you're talking out of your ass.

He's the most charming board member, certainly. No, wait, I take that back. Actually, Vengefulgoat is the most charming one, with Veracs as a close second.

Perhaps you've heard of a new band called VHÖL featuring members of YOB, Ludicra, Agalloch, and Hammers of Misfortune. Their debut comes out in April and this song was just released which absolutely slays:

You're just too skinny and you're too feminine!

Sorry for those not in the top 10, better luck next year!

One year is also ample time to schedule and undergo plastic surgery at any number of third world facioplasty centers. Use that tax return wisely, chums!

Aaaaand I'm just gonna leave this here because it's beautiful:

Oh, and Hellblazer and Morrigan not on your list, Tony? Where's that slavish toadyism we all want to see? I mean you're swell, Tony! :love:

Woah. What's going on :lol:

In my honest opinion, Frog should be in your top 10, Tony. He's one sharp dressed man.

In other news, I've started listening to lots of Running Wild all thanks to Ozzy's and BH's reviews :metal:

I'm currently checking out Johnny Marr's debut solo album. Seems pretty decent, but I doubt it will have the staying power of the old Smith's stuff. Also still on my MBV kick, which is just a fantastic thing to be on.

So yeah. Not much metal for me so far this year, but I'm sure that'll change somewhere down the road.

Cheers! IGR is a good band, though I'd have to say The Glinting Spade is their best and kind of overshadows the rest of their catalogue. One of those unfortunate peaks of greatness.

And yeah, mausling's a handsome gent! Though I do think he needs a vest and cravat collection.

At one time didn't Crick say "nigger nuts" and that was made someone's signature for a good while? Why I remember that so vividly is beyond me. :oh shit:
