What a band says may not be quite as important as how they sound when they say it, or how many totally awesome widdly guitar solos they have in each song, but the impact of great lyrics is not to be underestimated. Anonymous Honestly, this review only backed up my arguments between the two. I also can't wait to see where Metallica go from here, because if Death Magnetic was an attempt to prove they could still do metal, and it worked, will they force out another thrash y album or try the 'experimental' route again? So many of their peers are down tuning and losing vitality to their live shows. God forsake my lack of knowledge of musical terminology, but the point is, the two bands are quite different aesthetically. Don't get me started with that. You've only to compare the overall output of the two bands to see what I'm talking about.
I'd say overall Metallica has had the bigger influence in my life, but when I want to listen to one of the bands usually I don't want to listen to the other, because they are just very different bands. Or Dave would be complaining about something trival. I don't have anything against the big four, I love them but I just don't think they bite hard enough. The first four are, I think we can all agree, absolutely fucking awesome. So you agree that Dave Mustaine and all his guitarists + drummers until now are better than Gay Hammett, James hetfield and Lars Ulrich? So does everyone else in his band.
Almost punkish at times, but totally epic at other times. Hey man In from New York, I dig Anthrax. Oh well, it's Mustaine's singing style and not a lot he can do about it. Is Metallica better than Megadeth? However Megadeth are way better mechanically and I think always were. If you still think Metallica is better than Maiden, listen to about any song from the Powerslave album, preferably the title track, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, or two minutes to midnight. Finally recent material is better on the Megadeth side.
Okay on to the other 3 acts. Sodom's production isn't great I agree but I adore the sound they put out. Dave created this band to seek revenge on Metallica. The price was affordable and this blu ray is a must buy for any thrash metal fan. They were established in 1981 when their drummer, Lars Ulrich, gave an advert and these members got in: singer and guitar player James Hetfield, guitar player Kirk Hammett and bassist Ron McGovney.
Now Dave thought wow this is cool, so he dropped the a in death. I also state this as a stronger fan of Metallica. Examples: The day that never comes does remind me a lot of Fade To Black, Welcome Home Sanitarium and One. Break it down how you like, reduce them to simplistic Diamond Head-meets-Motörhead equations, but Metallica are untouchable. Did you miss that bit? These are all very talented musician who worked with Megadeth at one point all of whom are better than James het field, Kirk waaahhmet, and Lars ulrich.
All these people are fools and should be killed. Megadeth will always the underdog of the two. On the new album, he sings about dangerous motor sports, political corruption, medieval torture devices and battles from Lord Of The Rings. It was nearly impossible for everyone to get there. People may say that Metallica was better in their prime, but consider this they were more successful in their prime then megadeth, which stems from them being one, more mainstream for a thrash band and, two, having Dave mustaine of Megadeth.
All metallica's best riffs were from mustaine and maiden is an incredible band im tired of so many metallica fan boys. I've heard it way too fucking much. Okay, so no one sensible would dispute that Metallica are a the biggest metal band of all time and b so enormously popular that they can get away with ropey live performances and releasing any old, half-arsed garbage. It's amazing to see so many people oblivious to how recycled the riffs to that album are, the fact their lineup is inferior to any other lineup that had before then, sterile production, the A Toute Le Monde remake nuff said , ect. Dave is getting better as a vocalist and musician as he ages. I only have Reign in Blood, but getting more Slayer albums isn't at the top of my priority list.
I really just prefer the older sounding songs with a little more aggressiveness to them. To me this was just disrespectful, so I now have a new reason to dislike Slayer. Dave Mustaine's net worth is speculated around 20-50 million dollars. There is no quick and constant flashing from one camera to another to the point that someone who gets seizures would need to worry lol. Always have been, always will be.
