I agree with the comment about the self-righteous attitude - I have many vivid memories of encountering that with music and the people that were into it when it was a big thing. Its just as bad as hair metal with tall the **** they put out..it was interesting overall from a sociological perspective... overall kind of let down. There needed to be more interplay because there was a dialogue going on at the time. Days of the New Opened for Metallica for the Load tour. Remember? BIG DEAL at the time
Just say No to the Yarl..... I'm sad this didn't go more into the metal community's response to grunge - like THE GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL??? Why does nobody seem to remember what all that was about???
i'm hoping there will be a season 2, where they focus on extreme metal sub-genres. I understand he had to do more commercial flavors in order to get it on the air, but I would love it if he went balls out on a second season with no regard for a 3rd. Black, death, doom, sludge, stoner rock, grind, my favorite: post-metal, even crust punk would all be great shows.
i wish they would have focused on some of the metal that was influenced by grunge. The Melvins have influenced many great metal bands. They pretty much invented sludge metal.
There isn't. I checked wikipedia....they waste an episode on grunge, a genre where all of it's major players correctly identify themselves as NOT METAL. Waste another on NU metal. One on prog metal (snooze) which i guess deserves an episode. And another on shock rock which is more of a tactic than a genre. The suits probably really blew this. I would love a whole show on the Florida Death Metal scene, & although I hate most black metal, I think it definitely deserves a show too.
there better be a death metal and black metal episode
