Worst Metal Band

 
  • Fine I'll participate too.

    Worst metal bands imo:
    Waking The Cadaver (sorry nothing beats them in term of shittiness)
    Bring Me The Horizon

    Bands overrated as hell (not necessarily the worst):
    Lamb Of God
    DragonForce
    Pantera
    Metallica (but I do like them)

    Worst "metal" bands:
    Liferuiner (seriously, what the fuck??)
    Slipknot
    Limp Bizkit
    MOST (not all!) deathcore bands

    Well,
    I'd have to say that a lot of deathcore/metalcore and other such sub-genres have some of the least talented bands. Most of them sound like some screamo shit, which can make the ears bleed. I strongly dislike Nickelback for trying to sound metal but failing miserably. And I think Metallica is overrated, not necessarily bad, I like a few of their songs, but I personally would not go out of my way to listen to them.

  • I hate when people throw entire genres in garbage cans. Even in deathcore and metalcore, there are bands I like, such as Despised Icon for deathcore and Born Of Osiris and All That Remains for metalcore. Also I do listen to Metallica, Pantera and even a bit of DragonForce from time to time. However, they've had some pretty damn shitty albums and their fanboys don't know what they're talking about. :P

  • How is Despised Icon any different than other deathcore bands or All That Remains different than other metalcore bands? I think in the end there are some genres that you either like or dislike, especially with those there is little variation in.
    Metallica is of course heavily overrated and had their share of shitty albums, but they were a great band and don't belong here.

  • And....that's why I made a different section for bands like Metallica (although I just don't like Lamb Of God). Too many people throw them in the "shitty band" section. Ride The Lightning fucking kills but now they really aren't too good.

  • To me, there are probably worse bands than any of those listed that are thankfully too fucking terrible to get a record deal. However, I personally don't like dismissing whole subgenres, so, genre by genre:

    Power metal: Dragonforce
    Thrash metal: I can't like Anthrax
    Nu metal: Limp Bizkit
    Death metal: Sledgehammer Autopsy
    Black metal: Satanic Destroyer/Abigail Williams
    Deathcore: Waking The Cadaver
    Metalcore: Bleed The Sky
    Brutal death: Aborted
    Grindcore: Tangaroa

    I can't actually find any funeral doom/trad/trad doom/DSBM that I strongly dislike. XD

    I wouldn't class the metal bands I don't like as real metal (Slipknot..etc..). But I must say I have a particular distaste for every grindcore band ever.

    what is this I don't even

  • The Grindfuckers are fun, but no match for Macabre, they kick ass and would actually make a good serious band if they wanted to :P
    Where are you now, Ronald old buddy, where are you now, the fries are all bloody!

  • Open-minded? There are bands I don't like, but I'm mature enough to not sit and shit talk them. Really guys? If you hate them so much why are they worth your time? This shouldn't be posted in a group for open-minded people, because it demonstrates the opposite of open-mindedness...

    I like Bring Me The Horizon so I can't really post in a thread like this, but:

    Bullet For My Valentine take it for me.

    I don't hate any metal band, but pornogrind/deathcore/old school black metal don't have a single band I like.

    What breaks my pride, will break your skull. I bring the end, just like an Archangel.

  • From the purely technical point of view, Grim Reaper are quite bad, and so are Accept, but I like them both a lot. So I wouldn't go as far as saying there is such a thing as a worst band ever, as long as someone can find worth in what that band does. Or perhaps I listened to too much punk rubbish when I was 14. Meh.

    However, there are bands I can't bring myself to like, for no logical reason. They just get on my nerves, despite the fact that they show some musical prowess and that I like other bands in their same subgenre:

    Motorhead
    Anthrax
    Pantera
    Rhapsody
    Savatage
    Dragonforce
    Cannibal Corpse
    Poison
    Cinderella
    White Lion
    Slipknot
    Saratoga
    Venom
    Slayer


    I am sure I can think of a few more...

  • ^^The glam bands there are understandable, as are Pantera and Dragonforce; they're fucking abysmal. Not too sure about the rest.

    After reading this, saw that one awful thing was missing:

    I have to admit that I just posted that I "oddly" didn't like Heaven 17. I concluded it was the vocals. I also sarcastically joked that metal bands cover them better on the video for a notorious cover of them by Cradle of Filth, so I have to admit I say bad things from time to time about bands. Those are two recent online examples, usually I get pissed at a band and vent to my friends about them...

    And this ties in with me saying I oddly didn't like Heaven 17, it's weird that I don't. I guess saying you don't like something isn't really "talking shit" either, so I commend you for being less derogatory than this thread itself is attempting to be.

    Music is a matter of opinion... And I know I seem to be nonsensically babbling, because I somewhat am...

    I'm sorry, that made me sink in. I agree about Waking the Cadaver. As for hating whole genres, I agree that's a bit though to just do. Funny though, I love black metal, great music, in fact one of my favorite music genres ever. But I think it's irritating that the best bands in the genre are disowned by the genre's fans. I myself say they just got too good to be called "black metal." I think the best bands defy genres, and when defying my favorite genre of course, the bands to do so become my favorite bands...

  • as open minded as I might be Limp Bizkit is the biggest disgrace ever to land on the Metal World. Yes, worse than the bands that will never make it out of the mom's garage.

    Non-liking certain genres is an option and an opinion, doesn't mean all the bands of that genre are bad like many people try to make us believe.

  • Say what you want about their later stuff, but Limp Bizkit's first album is excellent from start to finish.

    I'll say what I want about their first album too. Aren't you the Korn fan? :P

    Perhaps 'a' Korn fan would've been more appropriate. I was pointing out that there would probably be a correlation between people who are fans of Korn and those who are fans of Limp Bizkit.
