Most of these bands didn't fit neatly into any one category, I will give you that. Sepultura's early stuff was very fast though, doomy as it may be. I included heavier in there too. I was just providing an example of the speed I like with that video in contrast to the music that Wolvie mentioned.

And Megadeth didn't need to be faster, cause it was better.

Then we duel at dawn!

Kicking Dave Mustaine out was the beginning of the end for Metallica, when Cliff Burton died the band never had a hope of returning to their former greatness.

That Cliff Burton part is true. Master of Puppets was their best album. It was so great Megadeth is still trying to copy it.i

I will admit to being too hard on Master of Puppets and Ride the Lightning, they really are great albums. I just love Kill 'Em All so much and they never really sounded like that again.

The problem with metal is there are genres and sub-genres of it. And for some reason people get really touchy over certain types of metal. There are even some music snobs who crap on anything that isn't in their one favorite type of metal music. It gets really bad when people start arguing over bands in the same genre. It can get ugly really quick. That's why I tend to stay out of these kinds of discussions. Too many toes can be stepped on.

That is true of almost all types of music, and there are always people who take their own and other's opinions too seriously.

Mind you this has nothing to do with anything talked about here. I know a couple music/metal snobs in real life and they are INFURIATING in their elitist attitudes about metal music. They shit on this band for this and that, yet praise a band that sounds almost exactly the same because that band has less exposure, or didn't make the main stream. You know, the whole "I'm edgy and cool because I like stuff no one has ever heard of" kind of attitude.

Look, if you like Meat Puppets, GWAR or Sepultura, fine whatever. But the moment you start shitting on Metallica for "Selling out", well it just makes a person sound bitter and jealous. If you genuinely don't like a bands sound, fine don't listen to it. Criticize too if you want. Just bring a rational argument to the table(again this is griping about people in real life, and no one here at the COG).

I recently had a similar conversation with a buddy about hip hop. He was telling me about how he just doesn't like mainstream rap, and I cackled and asked if he was 15.

"I don't like it cause it is popular" is just so fucking silly.

If you are older than 15 and use the terms 'sellout' or 'poseur' you had better have a good understanding of the meaning and a good reason for using it, or you just end up sounding like an idiot.
