I'm curious about the British metal scene and would like to know
a) what you guys think of it,
b) Any favourites?
...the whole post-bring me the horizon thing generally or what? It's a very vague question you have posed....
end of thread.
There are a few great bands lurking about if you know where to look. They tend to lurk around the whole home counties area for some reason. Though that being said, I haven't really heard of any really good British metal bands for a few years now. Been in London too long, I guess.
chronicles of adam west for a reason. only british metal band worthy of any time in last year or two i reckn
Shels*, Exit Ten, Centurion, Malefice and definitely Johnny Truant
awful apart from johnny truant.
In terms of current bands there's too many Botch rip-offs. Napalm Death still rule all.
if they count
Judas Priest clearly out in front follwed by their B team Iron Maiden.
Sabbath can never be challenged.
and you're also wrong re: priest/maiden order.
Steve Harris has over the years confessed to Priest being their biggest influence. Back in the day with Mr Di'anno on vocals you'd be hard pressed not to recognise that. Not that Maiden aren't great of course.
I'm familiar with bands like Maiden and Priest; its' just that recently there's been a lot of smaller metal bands coming out and I just want to see what you guys think of it?
Any 'METAL BAND OF THE YEAR' or 'THE NEXT SABBATH' kind of thing?
This is my friends' band, to be fair they're not the 'best british metal band' but they are good and very true to the whole metal thing. And they're also looking for a drummer, if anyone's interested.
all american metal is shit
apart from one band
what is that one band?
bring me the horizon
Bring Me My Spunk Jar.
you love them way too much.
the best bit was when he pissed on me and chucked a bottle of jager at my face
OH NO! THAT WASN'T ME! THAT WAS YOUR MUM!
you still smelled of piss the other night.
that was your mum again
Are they metal?
quite a big fan of zinc, copper is good too.
That should really work, that link, ah well....
Devil Sold His Soul
Those are all purely current bands though. I hate the scene and all the dickheads associated with it.
'Soul Destruction' era The Almighty
