The appeal of MOTOR HEAD alludes me, well at least they aren't ABBA like.
Hmmm, what about STP what do you classify them as?
You got to be possesed by the devil or ABBA not to smile at the sound of THE TROOPER.
Alice in Chains is not Grunge or Grunge sounding. They are Metal and can play and thrash and aren't whiny "I hate my life" BS like those crap bands like Nirvana and Candlebox and what the hell ever else there is
great episode, but it would've been nice if they interviewed forbidden.
Dude the purpose of this documentary is to discuss the start of thrash. the main bands of thrash that kept the movement going,
Why no Nuclear Assault or Overkill?
Very true. It was the Gores who were directly fascist with music censorship, not the Reagan administration.
Not sure what you're talking about. Slayer released two albums through Def Jam, "Reign in Blood" and "South of Heaven". Also, I personally owned a copy of the audio cassette for "South of Heaven" with a big ol' Def Jam logo. I think what you're talking about is the fact that Columbia Records (who had a deal with Def Jam) wouldn't distribute them, so Geffen did it. However, Slayer was never signed to Geffen. They stuck with Def Jam, and left with Rick Rubin to do American Records later.
I grew up on metal like priest, maiden, sabbath and punk like ramones, misfits, and black flag. Its only natural that i love thrash. More intense than glam, more fun than grunge, and better musicians than both.
I grew up on Iron Maiden, Sabbath, The Ramones, and the Misfits. Its only natural I love thrash, more agressive than glam, more fun than grunge, and better musicianship than both. Also if the Black album didnt have ballads it would've been better, just because it was slower doesnt mean it sucks. We all love Sabbath and they are slow
The Ballad was on Testament's Practice What You Preach album released in 1989. Metallica's "Black" album released in 1991, 2 years later. Not a very good example for the 4th segment of the show regarding record company pressure on bands to "become the next Metallica". Plus both The Ballad and PWYP are both quite amazing.
Bay area kid in 1983, I see my journey through metal and where I was in the evolution then to now.
So vastly defined a genre today, Its not helpful IMO. I find too much formula and less innovation within sub genre.
The idea thrash was a political reaction to The Reagan Thatcher years is just a weaklings contempt. Nobody WAS suppressed but liberals like Tipper Gore PMRC made an attempt.
"Was Slayer really on Def Jam Records? " Yes, Rick Rubin signed Slayer to Def Jam. But, the higher ups that let Rubin actually run the Def Jam label didn't want to put out the album, so luckily Rubin got them signed to Geffen. The vinyl version of "Reign In Blood" was released on Def Jam, but not the cassette or CD.
Lamb of God and Mastodon carried the torch.
I wonder if they will touch on hardcore and metalcore at some point later in the series.
I played in a Thrash band called Mazaleeum in Eastern PA in 1987. When Thrash was still fresh and new and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. LONG LIVE THRASH METAL
Was Slayer really on Def Jam Records? That was when they had real hip hop before the ******** we got today. What if it was Run DMC and Slayer? Yeah, yeah. I liked nu metal too, but it wouldn't even sound right. Maybe Slayer and... Onyx? Still funny to see that.
why is it grunge and nu metal instead of death and black metal
why is it grunge and nu metal instead of black and death metal, stupid
