Full disclosure

If I'm gonna title my blog the title I titled it, I should probably be talking about what metal doesn't suck, and why metal that came in the 70's and 80's was so much more badass than that which came about in the 90's (w/some exception) and happily ever thereafter until we stand here, at today.

Be ready to load some slowass MySpace pages.

This is good modern metal.

Just kidding.

This is good metal. (dunno how long this page will stay up, what with My_'s new copyright enforcement standards) The first two songs, anyway. That opening riff on The Thing That Should Not Be is brutal.

This is better metal. Megadeth stayed good throughout their career. Not as brutal and fast as they always were, but still metal, still carrying the torch. Never let it burn out, Dave.

Yep, you can't go wrong with the two M's. And that is installment 1 of
What, then, is good metal?

Justify Your Shitty Taste: Pantera’s “Power Metal” | Decibel Magazine

Justify Your Shitty Taste: Pantera’s “Power Metal” | Decibel Magazine

A good article. It's got all you need in an album review: not too short, not too long; got pics of the album and the band from that album's era in with the text, and a YouTube vid of a song from the album that you can play whilst you read.

I'm starting to like Decibel.

This is a track from the new Weedeater album Jason... the Dragon. Steve Albini-produced. Sounds fuckin awesome.

Here's a good review of the album.

Fantano's reviews are always good.

I haven't heard the album myself. But it looks like it rules.
