I like a lot of 80s thrash metal, and I wouldn't consider Trivium to be grouped with that genre, they're more 'cookie monster metal'. I give them credit where credit is due for trying to shred, but when I listen to their solos it just sounds like they're doing it for the sake of being able to say they can shred - the solos I heard when listening to them were all naff.

what I mean is that Trivium are obviously into their thrash, and it shows more than most bands out there. thats without them wearing the t-shirts. i've seen them live but wasn't really that impressed, although they are still very young and hopefully will start to justify the hype.  sorry for going off topic!

i just bought the new issue of guitarist magazine today and its got Justin and Dan in it. not read the interview, but Justin's Ibanez looks very similar to the one Steve Vai used around the time of Passion and Warfare (the running colours one that looks like an artists palette), although its got some nice differences. All the manufacturers are clearly jumping over themselves to get Justin to endorse their products - can't say I blame him.

i'd probably like the darkness if it wasn't for their arrogance like they are the best thing since sliced bread. i can appreciate that they have talent, but you'd think they were the best guitarists on the planet from the way they talk. i'll give that interview a read and see if i like them anymore after that.

I agree. I also noticed most of the "metal" nowadays has shitee vocals. Its all BLARARLARLATLGHAHAHAH then pretty choirboy singing! I hate it! Give me the vocals of Megadeth/Death Angel/Vio-Lence/Any other good old thrash band anyday, just none of the new cr@p!

I sound really old (I'm only 17!) but music seems to have really gone badly, badly downhill, it seems the only good bands are older ones now! ARRGHH I need a band to get good music into the ears of the youth  :lol: I wont stand for any of this nu-metal pap!

"nu metal" dont mention those words around me. that was just a stopgap genre as far as i am concerned. the stuff now blends in what Agnostic Front were doing in the early nineties hence the shouting. it was always known as crossover back then but now has its own naff name "metalcore" and "mathcore" like WTF is that kind of name about. My personal hate is when the singer goes between the death metal roar and singing as i'd rather they just stuck with one thing although Killswitch Engage do it better than most.

Another thing I absolutely hate is indie, but I wont even get started on that!

Anyway, I might download a couple of the new Darkness songs to see if "One Way Ticket" was just THE cr@p song on the album..

I don't mind the pretty choir boy bits every so often, but yep, the BLARGAHABA;ALABA\AHAHARHAH bits totally suck, and its just annoying. Ever heard Atreyu??!?! Whats up with his voice?!?!?! When yu edit it out and just leave choir boy, its actually not that bad  :lol: ...... on second thought - its really is! its just not AS bad.
LOVING the Mules!

Since when has that been a prerequisite for rockstardom? ;)

Can't say I really understand The Darkness -- they do all this self-consciously cheezy stuff and then seem like they're trying to act serious (as opposed to sending up people whoa re too serious) at the same time.  I mean: which is it?  Ah well, I shouldn't knock a formula that rakes in far more cash than anything I'm likely to do!

Never much got on with those cookie monster metal oooooowargh vocals either.  I mean, dude :roll: put some fibre in your diet.  Seriously ....

I read an interesting quote today about is apparently why the darkness hate the NME, although I sourced it from popbitch so it probably isn't true lol. apparently a positive review of one of their earlier gigs was doctored so it came across negative even though the reviewer was a friend of theirs. like i said it was popbitch so its just a rumour so might not be true!
