I honestly don't think I would have liked them if I didn't know what to expect from them first. I found something that I enjoyed about them which was the fact that they were just two musicians on Bass/Vox and Drums. Its not every day that you hear the bass guitar as the lead instrument.
Hate, nah... I don't hate anyone, you're jumping to conclusions. I just dislike anything that has influences from Numetal or any other popular influences of the current times. If you dislike the classics so be it, as for core its not metal, so GET LOST!
KiltedThrash is totally right. It's not really metal at all. It's certainly got that hardcore vibe, but it ain't metal. I love some hardcore, and metalcore and all of that shit that elitists would call me a heretic for, but I can guarantee you that Brownsound or whoever the fuck they are aren't doing anything new.
You're entitled to like them all you want. I don't care. Just don't go telling everyone else that has a different opinion that their ideals are tearing the metal community apart.
I don't know what band we are discussing but they are probably terrible, in my opinion. As Max said, listen to whatever you want but if you don't grow up and realize that people won't always like what you like, you're basically fucked. Also, I highly doubt that they bring anything new to the table. Simply because theses days, nothing is really "new to the table" sure you can meld some genres together that maybe aren't a popular combo but with the vast amount of musicians that are on the planet it probably isn't anything new. Bands or solitary musicians mix whatever the fuck they want to mix, and "wubcore" or "deathstep" whatever that fuck you mean by those, is definitely nothing new.
I'm sorry, but I have this thing when people call one of my favorite bands ''pure and utter shite'', ''crap'' and ''Complete bullshit'' I get a little bit upset. Y'know, since I wasn't the one who started the flaming, so don't you come here and make me look like the flamebait. A simple no would have been okay, or a motivation for why you did not like it.
Anyway, before the above guy banishes me or the hell I know i'd like to suggest a new band.
Woods of Ypres , were a blackened doom metal, until recently when their lead vocalist died in a car accident. Yay. They have released four full lengths, and I would describe their music as a combination between raw hardness and deep vocals. Their first titles focus more on their black metal influences, while the newer ones have a tendency to go a little more on the doom metal/Metal side.
Also, regardless of who started what, it doesn't really matter. I'm not sure if you did or not, but lurking this thread has always been the wisest choice. Because we don't usually take too kindly to new people. As most of them come in here discussing garbage.
As for musical contribution, I have mostly been listening to a lot of harsh noise and drone music. But I did recently listen to some the "new" Gnaw Their Tongues release a few nights ago. While it's weird to hear somewhat more traditional black metal from him, it's still fucking great.
David Gold was a killer singer. It's a shame he died young. Then again there is always a brutal history of great people passing before their time. If I just started listing names I would be here all day. Woods is an awesome group. I have my Woods 5 special edition bundle thing at my house. I have yet to hang up the poster.
Annnnnnnnd. I need to listen to more black metal considering my band goes into the studio in a week ;____; I just finished 3 songs worth of scratch tracks yesterday. I have to do 3 more today, and the drummer is taking care of 3, then the producer guy is going to pick one of our old songs and that'll be the 10th one on the album.
Indeed? I'm sad to admit that songs like I was Buried and Lightning and Snow tend to become even deeper when one of the band members has gone and died. ''Don't worship the dead'' as David nicely put it.
Are you referring to the one with the vinyl? T-shirt, poster and a vinyl, right?
Unbelievably ambient. Honestly, not much goes on musically. A lot of volume swells and fluttering melodies with a constant hum of background chords and such. It's the kind of thing you want to listen to when you just really need to relax.
