PostSubject: horseman vs mechanix   Sat Nov 28, 2009 11:35 am

ok so we know that megadeth and metallica aren't the best of friends. or maybe we could rather say mustaine (negative stuff) isn't that good with ulrich and hetfield. frankly i doubt that anyone here really gives a stoned snail's ass about them. but we do about mucis.
so it has been known for a long time that the 4 horseman and mechanix are the reason of some controversy. now you get to say by your not so humble opinion which song is better. hell i'm even gonna spice things up because 2 more songs are in a similar situation but i won't include them in the poll, just state your opinion. so here are the main two contestants:

metallica - the 4 horseman


megadeth - mechanix


not the other 2 that are supposedly the same (note that it's said that their instrumental is the same)
metallica -the call of ktulu


megadeth - hangar 18

Metallica is always better than Megadeth.

as for orion and to live is to die there is no question about it. but seriously i have to admit that when i started listening to thrash metal the first bands were slayer and metallica.
when i heard megadeth only a few songs stuck with me, but when it comes to metallica my mother and i used to fight over who gets to take the cd with kill 'em all, ride the lightning and master of puppets to school/work.
now in this case although mechanix is faster, at least seemingly, i'm gonna go with 4 horseman as well

Hangar 18 is the best song posted, but between the poll choices Four Horsemen.

well i just recently heard about the kthulu/hangar thing so i didn't really have time to look into it and see if there is a reason behind it all so that's why i didn't include them in the poll

Anyone can put a load of fast solo's together and call it an instrumental, Call of Ktulu created a whole atmosphere, To Live is To Die and Orion had their own acoustic then metal phases whereas Hangar 18 was just one long solo split up. Just my opinion though, I do like alot of Megadeth's stuff but their instrumentals cant compare with Metallica's (imo).

Since when was Hangar 18 an instrumental? Okay the vocals are limited, but they're there, not spoken word, actually sung.

I like Freidman's touches, I like the riffs, the phrasing... and Orion is just flat. I think so many people have this psuedo emotional attachment to it because it was played at Cliff's funeral or whatever, as if that gives it more significance: it doesn't actually have any real atmosphere... that song is so boring.

The thing with Hangar 18, is it fits so perfectly with the rest of Rust in Peace... I never listen to that albums song individually because they all follow on so well from each other, the whole thing is a masterwork, which is odd, because everything else Megadeth has done has been utter bollocks.

Still, if you take Metallica's best song, Dyers Eve, it trounces anything Megadeth, or pretty much any other thrash band has done.

Just my two cents...

Mechanix is a great thrash song while The Four Horsemen drags on forever and has passages that add nothing to the song.

Plus Megadeth > Metallica

that probably proves that i don't think too much about who said what and where, especially since i have to read everything and know what are potentially flame dangerous threads

The Four Horseman.

I'll take Metallica over Megadeth any day, and even though I like Megadeth, nothing beats that song.

I just wanted to say, that even though I would say I like Megadeth more, I still love early Metallica and Kill 'Em All will always have a place on my top albums list

Dave may be a better guitarist, but his vocals are average to these ears
