What do you think of the metal of today?

Just wondering what people think about the new Heavy Metal bands- Bullet for my Valentine, Children of Bodom, Lamb of God etc
Compared to the older Heavy Metal bands- Metallica,Slayer,Megadeth and Pantera?
In my opinion i think the new stuff is simply crap, would be great to hear other jemsiters opinions on this.

I have no preference of old vs new. I like particular styles, and some of those styles may be new and some old. But out of those bands you mentioned, both new and old, I don't like any of them.

80-90's had some awesome shows from the old metal. I have seen C>O>B twice & they rock every show. The sounds & styles are up to you enjoy or not, it's all subjective. I say find what you like & turn it up!

Really, you don't like Megadeth, Metallica, Pantera or Slayer?

Oh yeah each to their own in the end, but i think the new metallers have let the old metallers down in a big way.

just like all other types of music, its either good or bad, just cause you can play fast doesn't mean you have musical abilities

i call all of those bands 'american metal'. it's evolved/change, i guess people don't like it because emo and scream also mixed in with it and still using the metal genre title.
I mostly listen to european metal bands

The vast majority of metal sucks intensely. Its all a matter of which team you play for.

Fixed. There's good music in every genre from every time period. There is also unfortunately a hell of a lot of crap.

That said:
There is just as much, if not more good metal now then the 80s. I like Megadeth but there are tons of bands better than them nowadays.

Also on the Pantera issue:

Yeah...they got a lot better during the 90s...


Feel free to change music to art in general.
