Thrash Metal

Thrash metal, speed metal, black metal, death metal, etc. The genre has many names and many offshoots.

Regardless, I don't get it.

I think I am a rather open-minded person when it comes to music. Name the genre and I can pretty much find something or someone I like.

Thrash metal? Not a chance.

I've tried many times to listen to it, but it was all in vain. As per me, it all sucks. Smashing a drum at 100,000 hpm (hits per minute) and churning out multiple chords in a span of three seconds while screaming into a mic is not music. It's inaudible drek! Hip-hop has more style than this crap.

I'm sure that tiny slice of the industry will somehow survive without my contribution in purchases.

Well, you can't like everything. I'm like you. I tried to listen to Zydeco music, but the live band experience in a seafood restaurant was so terrible that even pounding the crustaceans with the wooden mallet was not having it's usual therapeutic effect. It took all I had not to turn that mallet on the guy playing the accordion!

*waves to Boxer and Eroswings*


You were supposed to return after this to Infomaniac and tell us which blogs you visited!

Bitches can't follow instructions.

And as for YOU, Maidy... you didn't even attend the party!

I have to agree. Any band with a vocalist who sounds like The Cookie Monster, a guitarist who just pounds on the low E string repeatedly, a drummer who just smacks the skins senselessly, and a bassist, they typically don't do too much anyway (I'm a recovering bassist myself, but now back on guitar) isn't much of a band IMHO. Though I loooooove Megadeth -- they're different.
