I tried it in a curry once, but I wasn't impressed.
seriously? Slipknot just got on my nerves. I saw this interview and they were still wearing those scabby masks with facepaint UNDERNEATH aswell. And were just going ''yeah, where we come from in Idaho or some place we're so bored, we kill all our classmates, we're so fucked...''
I dunno. Toxicity was great, and the double album had some fantastic stuff on it. Much underrated I think, and hardly nu-metal. They were far more sophisticated than that.
Better than any Korn album. Fact*.
*facts may actually be opinions
I was just trying to make people who might disagree feel better.
What are you doing with that fire?
strung out, no use for a name, lagwagon, mad caddies, capdown, rancid, nofx were my favourite bands. dont think any of them were really whiny though.
nah, Toxicity was very much a nu-metal album. No doubt about that. I remember being on a tube train with my mate when I was about 17, huddled together sharing the headphones playing her SOAD's first album and she thought it was Jewish folk music at first
btw, i never really got round to Dillinger 4. Where's a good startin point?
Yup definitely at the time, havent listened to any in that long I couldnt tell you if i still liked em now.
actually, capdown were baaaad. They rocked it!
Slipknot were also crap, but mildly amusing so not a complete waste of space.
That one, Midwestern Songs of the Americas.
It might not be great art, but it's fucking cracking punk a la Fat Wreck.
possibly my favoirote band of all time. and where my name comes from.
I loved all the householdname stuff. 5 knuckle, big d and the kids table, light year. Oh yes!
Oh and i hayed slipknot at the time for some reason quite liked a couple of the latter albums, what ever was releaed at the time when metallicas forgot what a solo was.
Yep, Midwestern Songs of the Americas is pretty good.
They are not the best thing ever but I really quite like them.
This is probably my favourite song by them:
cousin cleotis is fucking awesome.
Iowa is a great album
i used to be mates with ed and saul from five knuckle. they were ok as a band
I used to vaguely know Light Year.
this thread needs more Leatherface, J Church, Bob Tilton, Baby Harp Seal, 7 Year Bitch, Vorhees and Nomeansno
i know Kafryn from Household Name
oh yeah, that's where slipknot are from...not Idaho.
But the fact that your friend picked up on the folk elements to their music kinda proves what I was saying. Nu-metal was fairly formulaic - downtuned guitars, whining vocals, sludge, bash, moan - but SOAD threw in all sorts of weird time signatures and odd Armenian folk bits, and just messed up the formula. That's why I think they've got more to them than, say, Papa Roach.
Ummm... I've seen the Arteries, who are on Householdname, a couple of times this year.
Not quite the same.
Yes, seriously. That was the proper thrash shit, not some radio-friendly game soundtrack fodder. I just put Iowa on to check I wasn't being daft and no I'm not.
umm anyone got any 5 knuckle stuff they would be willing to send to me. I owned it all but lost everything but the all ages e.p in my carsh in feb.
I will be very grateful.
Never found any availible for download.
I miss owning it.
Never really got into korn, liked their south park episode though.
i agree that soad's first album was good, but it all took a major nosedive beginning with Toxicity. Which most definitely WAS formulaic, but not in the soad way that brought them fans with the first album, but the second album ticks all the nu-metal boxes.
sikth were kinda cool nu-ishmetal.
I liked them. Apart from the lead singer who is a poncey pompus tool.
