I mean, how is it physically possible to watch this video/hear the song and not like this band?

If Anselmo's delivery in the chorus of Great Southern Trendkill doesn't make you want to flip a car over heavy music isn't for you

You're so right, anyone that claims to not like Pantera must be lying, there's no other explanation.

But do you metaphysically like Pantera?

Power Metal (the album) was used to punish me as a kid, so I can't appreciate it even metametaphysically.

This is what happens when you try to clean your keyboard while a window is opened.

to answer the question, i'll tell you how. by allowing Pantera's music to make it to my ears. It is a stupid statement to make though. How can anyone have different music tastes than I do?

it was quite hard but I listened to the whole thing. Cock rock vocals, tired pentatonic riffs, heaps and heaps of rock / metal clichés, horrible. It got kind of different somewhere in the middle of the song but I fail to understand what people liked about this. Please explain that to me.

Well there is definitely distinctions in styles to make in metal (a shitload in fact) but it does come down generally to some guy either growling, screaming or aggressively singing over really heavily distorted guitar riffs. No it's not all the exact same, but if you don't care for the basic concept behind metal, it doesn't mater how many variations on it there are, you won't care for any of it.

I think the metal i have enjoyed limits itself to 3 or 4 bands (most of which are not really metal by todays standard) and pretty much i've all enjoyed them in a bit of a tongue in cheek way. I can't take most of it seriously. Its hard to see how anyone could.

Also Phil Anselmo is a total dickhead. Yeah his head looks like a dick but I mean as a human being.

perhaps pantera created a lot of the cliches and inspired the bands that made the pentatonic riffs that were rendered tiresome because of imitation of pantera/metallica (pentallica) or are you just not feeling it even with perspective of historical context you feel me

they were kind of like the anti-alternative metal band that was popular in the 90s when the radio got taken over by non metal baby faggot bands so i think that's why metalheads have a special place in their heart for them

i dunno

i'm from texas so i already know about pantera but i never had a great big boner for them or anything. dimebag was cool dude and down is pretty okay but you know whatever

Not to be confused with Shit Metal. Which is actually a subgenre that can be found in all genres and subgenres of metal if you look for it. The term has also sometimes been used as an alternate name for Nu metal.

A lot of bands that I like are more or less an overload of clichés too, most of them are more or less nostalgia, I think I wouldn't start listening to Rage Against The Machine at this age unless I haven't already been listening to them since the age of 15.

Pantera would probably have been like that would I have known them at a younger age. At younger age music tends to impress more, especially if it's the first time you hear a metal band or whatever. Now I have all these preconceived notions about music that seem kind of impossible to get rid of since that's kind of how my taste is now. Pantera does a lot of things that I find completely uninteresting or tired because of this. I find it hard to understand what people like about it. If it's nostalgia of some kind it's easier to understand though.

Not that it's important and I don't give a shit whatever people like or not but this was my answer to the question 'how can you not like pantera'. HOW CAN YOU

And Sabbath was my favorite band when I was like 14. I still love Iommi's guitar playing.

Sabbath doesn't sound like metal nearly as much as they do hard rock. They're closer to Led Zeppelin in sound than Metallica or Iron Maiden, but Black Sabbath is the one hailed as the "first heavy metal band" and is more frequently lumped in with metal than Led Zep. It's kind of like what Cocteau Twins and The Jesus and Mary Chain are to shoegaze.

The video version doesn't exactly do the track justice because they cut out the intro from it. The intro is this absolute sludgy, grimey, guitar heavy riff. It slays, listen to it here:

The intro really does add a different depth to the song.

Also, the videos meant to feature the cliches, the videos meant to be kind of an ode to why they got into music in the first place and showing that they're still loving it more than ever and carrying on the torch in their own unique way. The part of the video when they show a shot of the little kid Rex and then fade into his "current self" is fucking priceless. But that was one cool thing about Pantera, you knew they were always 100 percent passionate.

I feel like gay is a pretty apt way of describing metal though
But it's a closeted sexually frustrated kind of gay.

I cannot explain my liking for 80's Megadeth but for my money they were in fact, better than metallica which I always found so fucking boring even in their supposed good years. It's too bad Dave Mustaine is a moron.

Keep in mind i'm saying all this as a very very casual metal listener.

Any modern metal I can't seem to even appreciate.

I said this in another thread before but even when I hear like half of what's on MCIS I think jesus what is this? Metal? I'm pretty much a fag now who can only stand a very limited amount of distortion in guitars. It's such a boring sound to me.

good for you

Weren't you that guy who always brings up these obscure old cult bands?

:nooooo:

fuzz, just because you haven't heard of some of the legends of post-punk doesn't make them "obscure" or "cult"

your lack of knowledge in this area does not de-legitimatize the bands or make them cult

ultimately most of us see elph talking about these bands and we're just like "jesus dude do you have a checklist" because we know these bands and they all have significant stature and influence to this day.

Try listening to a band like The Fall or Gang of Four.
