PostSubject: Bands that were cool but now suck !   Mon Nov 09, 2009 1:42 am

The bands back in the day that kicked your ass but now cant even kick a damn can , Thats what were looking for . Its all up to you and its only your opinion so please no piss fits .. "Then" would be around the first 5 years of a bands life .." Now" would be the past 5 years or so ..

Metallica Great then .. metallica Blows now
Megadteh Great then .. megadeth Blows now
Anthrax Great then .. Anthrax Blows now
Deicide Great then .. Deicide Blows now ( Thats Just for Master Cthulhu )

I'd argue that Deicide and Megadeth have always sucked... But yea Metallica comes to mind pretty quickly.

lol I'm wasn't actually in Deicide, I just have the same name and live relatively close to the guitar player.

hmmm...

Besides the obvious (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, etc) I can't think of too many...

Gorgoroth used to be great, but are pretty awful judging by their last release.
Iron Maiden, though I never really liked them in the first place.
Entombed has been very "meh" since Clandestine.

and finally, the joke is over, but i have a funny feeling cthulhu will have to explain that more than once. i didnt know you lived near him....

and you all may disagree BUT
Avenged Sevenfold USED TO BE AWESOME......but now they blow. well, to some. they play a way different style. i LOVE Waking the Fallen, but their self titled album blows compared to ....(i had no idea the abbreviated version of that album is WtF....hahahahaa)

Scar Symmetry...new singers blow. each album they put out, i like a little bit less. i still love them, but Dark Matter Dimensions sucks.

Lacuna Coil - Once they were a very good Euro Gothic Metal band now they're just an Americanised pop rock radio friendly garbage generator, proof that a raise in profile, increasing popularity and regular Ozzfest / download festival slots help ruin promising careers despite earning you more money.

Soilwork - Formerly a damn good Swedish melodic death metal band, now a boring and all too familiar melodic deah / metalcore band.

In Flames - Same as Soilwork.

Slayer - Reign In Blood, Seasons In The Abyss, South Of heaven; All great albums, everything after those is simply.....meh.

Deicide - Early releases were cool unaplogetically blasphemous blasting death metal, yet it got boring and stale with every other release.

Cradle of Filth - The first album and follow up EP are great but then the circus came to town once they started to believe their own hype, now they're the laughing stock of BM as they have been for many years now which is a shame because "The Principle of Evil Made Flesh" really is a damn good album.

Slipknot - I liked the albums Slipknot and Iowa, but I don't like their new direction.

Shining - IV was good, III and V were great, VI was mediocre and, worst of all, not much of a Shining album.

What about bands that went the other way: they sucked, but are now great.

Mayhem come to mind...

Maybe Ulver. I haven't heard much of their early stuff but it sounded like boring low-fi black metal. Compared to everything after and including Bergtatt at least.

I'm going to have to disagree: Nattens Madrigal is a brilliant piece of black metal. It is low fi, but its filled with melody, hidden in the buzzing guitars, its got its own style and it is a msterpiece in my opinion.



Amazing...

It is one of the top black metal albums indeed. I was thinking more of Vargnatt and that other stuff.

Ulver - Vargnatt

Actually sounds pretty cool to me.

As far as I'm concerned Ulver have never sucked, whether they be making the folk influenced Black Metal of the past, electronic soundtrack experimentations or the more progressive rock / post metal of today, it's all great.

Nattens Madrigal is the only Ulver album I've well and truly loved, but they've never been a bad band per se, but I struggle to get into their other albums.

That's nothing. I paid 60 ($120) for Dead Silent Slumber's album. I've paid a hell of a lot more for vinyl...

im the extreme opposite. i wouldnt think about paying more than 10$ for the rights and maybe a hard copy.
but then again, im not a hardcore audiophile. i bet your collection is one of epic proportions

United Abominations was a pretty good album. Endgame is a bit better, but I still like them about the same.

Put United Abominations and Endgame against Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? and Rust In Peace .. That should end the megadth talk .. Dave found GOD and lost the will to make great evil thrash metal .. Now there just one step away from a bad nickleback song..

Honestly, before Dave found god, I liked Megadeth albums a hell of alot more. Broderick can't be denied of his skills, but he is in a dying band.

Whatevs

I like it. Not saying the old stuff isn't substantially better, but when a band like that lasts for 20+ years it's good to have them making metal still. Slayer's new stuff isn't exactly Reign in Blood, but it's still good. At least they aren't making country like Def Leppard. But I don't care, I'll listen to new Megadeth and new Slayer regardless because it's still good music

Obviously their old stuff is better, but I'm just saying that one can't disregard the new stuff entirely because there's some good stuff to be found.

If every album they ever released sounded the same it would get pretty boring and repetitive after a couple albums

No, it's really boring and repetitive after a couple albums...

But, I agree with Hate. Finding God is like quitting drugs. You know your music's gonna suck after that.
