    Metallica are the world's most overrated band.
    Amen to that.

    Anybody ever notice that you can sing the lyrics to Slipknot's Duality rather well to the verse of La Roux's Bulletproof? Start the first verse with "I've screamed until my veins collapse"...

    I had the La Roux song in my head, and because I don't know the lyrics, I was just making stuff up... It soon dawned on me after that Duality's lyrics fit in there nicely...

    I'm weird like that! These things just pop in to my head!

    I figured I post here seeing as I just discovered Parkway Drive.
    I've been listening to Horizons and its one of the best albums I've heard in ages. It's like the best screaming bits from Killswitch Engage + As I lay Dying but slightly heavier and with amazing riffs.
    I can't wait for their new album (this summer?)

    You're obviously listening to the new KsE :p:

    Parkway Drive are a bit like August Burns Red... when you first hear them you think wow that's pretty decent. but it soon wears thin when every song sounds the same. Or that's my opinion anyway... Too many breakdowns and absolutely no variation in vocals boring quickly for me at least

    True. I'm not really a fan of their older stuff. 'My Last Serenade' isn't too bad though.

    I know what you mean about ABR there isn't a lot of variation. Like Hatebreed I guess. If you like one song you like them all :p:

    When faced with a case like that, I only bother to listen to the best one of them

    PS, are you on the Sonisphere Forums perchance? Your name/avatar seems familiar

    I am! I joined at about the time of the second band announcement. I haven't been on for a while though. Do reckon this year will match up to last year? I've heard Rammstein are awesome live (even if I'm not a fan of their music).

    I wasn't really a fan but I've started listening to them to get me prepared and I've found they've got quite a few great songs
    Iron Maiden should be awesome live too
    Plus, there's a lot of rumour about Soundgarden, which would be fantastic, but I reckon Download might get them
    I'm a big Placebo fan, so personally I'll definitely enjoy it
    There's another announcement mid-February and I can't wait to see who else is playing
    Are you thinking of going?

    The older Rock and Metal Soc posters did I do, was listening to Lateralus last night actually Have you heard of Rishloo? Get compared to Tool often but enough differences to make them stand out. I love their first album and the others are not bad

    They're the main band that I've been meaning to get into but have never got round to listening to them :p:

    New Immolation song is up. Music is alright I guess but it's definitely not their best, as far as I can tell listening through the ****** Myspace player the production sounds really clean, I thought the dirtier sound of albums like Close To A World Below suited their style better.

    Maybe it's just me but by death metal standards, that's boring as ****. I'd rather listen to Parkway Drive than that... and I LOVE tech death :p:

    New Arsis album has appeared.... it's weird. Seems they've totally ditched tech death and are now playing some weird hybrid of thrash and melodeath. It's getting dangerously close to sounding like Skeletonwitch with different vocals :eek:

    I've listened to Rammsteins new album a bit recently(not the special edition though!) and the songs are pretty good. At first I found it hard to take them seriously just because they were singing in German but it's definitely growing on me. I've only heard one Placebo Song but I thought it was pretty good. I'm not sure about Soundgarden being at Sonisphere tbh, how big are they over here compared to America? I'm definitely looking forward to more SOAD reunion rumours that would be awesome.
    Anyway, I want to go to at least one festival this year and exams will probably mean i can't go to Download. Sonisphere's date is pretty much perfect especially with an Extra day this year .

    You should have been in London tonight! INCANTATION ****** TORE THE PLACE UP!! And Hate were absolutely sensational as well, 10x the band Behemoth will ever be. Need to see Immolation hitting the road in the UK soon...

    ohhh dear. i know each to his own, but if you ask me Death Metal = Incantation + Immolation + Suffocation

    yeah sure tech death is great, but it's good to appreciate the old school stuff too.
