That part in Darkthrone's 'In the Shadow of the Horns' when Nocturno Culto shouts, 'Nocturno Culto!' right before beginning the first verse. What the hell?


As was already pointed out, that's actually Fenriz (or might even be Zephyrous) and he is introducing Nocturno Culto as he comes in with the vocals right afterwards.


It's perfectly timed with the drum fill, too, and just sounds fantastic!

“Back in the day”, as it were, I used to get a kick from casually putting this on in the background at a lower volume and watching my family and friends be slowly unnerved by it when they eventually realized the same 9 second sample was on in the background for 20 minutes or so.

You're a sick motherfucker! LOL!

What about the moment in track 3 of Ulver's 'Bergtatt' album, when there's suddenly a shot/bang sound much louder than the rest of that song? Just about makes me fall over when I hear that on headphones.

I mentioned this.

i don't have anything against sacrificed itself - it's quite catchy - but it just feels way out of place on the album, and when i first heard it, i stopped what i was doing to check that i was still listening to the same album (or band even)

So I just got Into Glory Ride in the mail yesterday and my first and only listen so far was pock-marked with a few moments that had me saying "What the fuck?"

Hatred. The chorus has a white-boy blues sort of breakdown, which inexplicably actually worked for me. I have no idea how they pulled this off. As if this wasn't already a colossal risk to take with the song, they also shoe-horned in these recurring moments of super-gently tinkling atmospherics. They pop up and then are washed away just as quick by a heavy riff and this also, beyond my understanding, completely worked for me.

I'd say the "Battle Hymn" instrumental was kind of a WTF moment for me because it toook away from the otherwise quite intense atmosphere on the album in a way that was kind of jarring.

On "The Panic Broadcast" by Soilwork, the WTF moment for me was every single time the vocalist felt the need to sort of, shout the vocals and make it sound like HxC music. Maybe not quite the best explanation but it really bothered me when the underlying fucking awesome riffs of Peter Wichers were going on.

Soilwork going increasingy (commercial) hardcore in their metalcore style should come as no surprise to anyone who has heard anything from them since the second album.

The old Manowar, anyway. Of course, at least half of Kings Of Metal consisted of WTF moments.

I've made it a point not to listen to anything beyond the first four albums. People bring up Manowar like they're the punchline to this big joke, and to me I just imagine all these great rocking heavy metal tunes.

Nihilist's cover of Repulsion's Radiation Sickness

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwwFIrItRws



At the 1:47 mark, the singer suddenly does this weird falsetto voice. I first heard this song after getting the Nihilist compilation in 2005, and to this day that voice has stumped me. What is its purpose? It sounds so random at the end of the song.

Intro to 'Preteen Deathfuck' really made me look around when I first listened to the album. Was at my friends flat and we were blasting the album out while having a few drinks. That started and we were sure the police would have been called.



I set that song to be skipped during random play of my music so that I don't unsuspectingly have a raped girl's shrieks playing on my computer speakers at any given time.

Boy I wish I was you, my first Manowar albums were Warriors of the World and Triumph of Steel. The latter isn't all THAT bad apart from that perplexingly awful decision to make the 28 minute epic complete with a four minute cymbal solo the opener, but still. It's a total fluke that I found Kings of Metal at a secondhand store and thought to myself "Manowar was supposed to be good in the 80's, right?". Thankfully that album led me to Hail to England and the fucking glorious Battle Hymns. I'd actually almost say that working backwards through Manowar gave me a greater appreciation for the early stuff, since they had to work to change my mind about them and ultimately succeeded.

No, I think that makes perfect sense actually. I may not be appreciating the material fully because I've never heard how tepid and awful they truly became later. I just don't want to ever know though, fuck that. Battle Hymns is still my favorite by far, there aren't many songs in the world more fun to sing along with than Shell Shock (SHELLLLLLLL SHAW-YI-OCK!!!!).

I could see Into Glory Ride creeping up to the top of the heap for me though. Those last two songs are just so, so good. And no cringe-worthy bass tracks.

Was listening to "Canada" by Devin Townsend and I forgot how good it was. However, there was a really crappy break in the middle of it where all of a sudden the music pretty much stops for guitar / drum tittering and some muffled "wa wa, wa wa, wa wa waaa waaaa" speaking.

The Annihilator song "The Trend" is a fairly good song, but that part when he says "hey man I hear there's a sale at hot topic, LET'S GO!" is definitely a WTF moment, and kinda annoying. Even though I get that it fits in with the general lyrical theme.

I still love how they threw that line in there after having an album that was full of guest spots from Hot Topic guitarists...

Doesn't this sound like a band that's about to go completely pop hardcore in a couple of years, especially when compared to earlier material? Simplistic rhythmic scheme and linear, rock music song structure, chugga start-stop verse riff, melodic multitracked clean vocal chorus (with a hardcoreish scream), metalcore chord progressions with "emotive" guitar solo. It's all there, man. As early as A Predator's Portrait, Soilwork was only a step away from sounding like Avenged Sevenfold.

This isn't Metal, but on (I think this album) White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean by NoFX in the middle of the album you hear a thirty second soundclip of El Heffe taking a massive, watery sounding shit.

You have like 17000 posts (before V2), that's one of your shittiest. I know you can do better than this. But yeah, Amorphis is one of the most overrated band in metal in my opinion, even their legit death/doom days

You know why it is at the end? Because it isn't supposed to be there. The original release doesn't have it. As was pointed out though, it's a rather middling album. Black Winter Day is alright - It was a sort of an anthem for young, up and coming metalheads in the late 90s and early 00s. The only early song that they kept in their playlist and the only they did that had growled vocals as done by Koskela. So it is rather nostalgic. But really, Amorphis's high points were Elegy and Privilege of Evil. Or, you know, Vulgar Necrolatry/Abhorrence.

I think the vocals on that EP could well be described as wtf moments. I don't like Koivusaari's vocals on any of the albums he's on, but they really stink up that one, imo. He sounds like his mouth is constantly filled to the brim with saliva on there. Or like some pitch-shifted parody of a death metal vocalist. Really, really bad, in any case.

But I can't stand pretty much any of these lower pitched dm vocalists anyway, so what do I know.

Hahahaha, two of the most annoying (yet funny) moments in Classic Death Metal.

The first time i heard the "Batman" theme at the end of "Dimension Hatross" was annoying as fuck. "what the hell this guys were smoking??'" hahahahah. oh, and "Pace Till Death".
