    You had me on your first post ;)

    I posted this thread for a few reasons....it is opposite of another thread for one. I was hoping it would get people to respond and participate and get some life flowing. I was also hoping it would get people to thinking and maybe listening to some new music they may not be familiar with or go back and listen to some things.

    Shall I delete the thread and talk about Covid or politics or some other bullshit instead? Run my lavender bath please, I am cranky from a long day...:rolleyes: :wubbed:

    Any djent album.

    99.9% of all nu-metal albums.

    Anything on modern country radio. (Old country is fine though).

    Anything with so much as a millisecond of Autotune on the vocals.

    To my ears it depends on when you hear something and if you have heard a "better", inspired version later on. For example there were a lot of people praising Venom and Possesed along with Death as the fathers of Black and Death metal.

    I can't stand any Venom record.

    I bought Possessed's 7 Churches int the late nineties when it came out as a reissue and tried to give it a good chance. It is unlistenable!

    Same with Death Scream Bloody Gore. Not as bad as the Possesed album but anything after that is miles apart from that record.

    Any old Grind record. I understand the logic behind it but it's just noise to my ears.

    Killswitch Engage, Machine Head, Lamb of God, Trivium, "djent" and stuff like that. Couldn't name albums though...

    Also almost everything by In Flames, and their clones. A lot of melodic death metal I don't like, although I like the concept of the genre. It tends to quickly get too poppy and simple.

    Also The Black Album, Rust in Peace, and generally "thrash" that doesn't actually thrash enough.

    Also later Death I don't care that much for.

    Can't forget everything Rage Against the Machine, Pixies or Dinosaur Jr. ever recorded.

    The Joy of Motion sucks and I got really worried when they posted that video of Tosin making new music at Misha'a house two days ago.

    Could never get into anything by Linkin Park or Coheed and Cambria even though most of my friends loved that stuff and were constantly raving about it.

    Death - Scream bloody gore. I bought this album as a teen and hated it ever since. It is terrible compared to Symbolic or The sound of Perseverance. The latter two are masterpieces imo.

    Emperor - Every album! I love Emperor but most of their albums sound raw and badly produced. Except for IX Equilibrium. That sounded too sterile and digital imo. I ALWAYS choose a live recording by Emperor over the studio version. These guys are beasts on stage!

    Cannibal Corpse - Time to Kill. Another album I bought in my late teens and was badly disappointed. Production was good. Songwriting not so much.

    All Periphery albums. I think they are great musicians, songwriters and producers but I just can't listen to their music.
    All the while they are pushing the guitar industry forward with their signature guitars, pickups, amps, pedals,... I even own a JBM27. But still, I'm not a fan of their music.

    There is more if I think harder about it..

    Man, you couldn't be more wrong about Slayer. They ride their riff salad on the low E♭ string.

    :lol:

    I was tempted to distinguish their tuning as being non-standard, but fuck it, they don't deserve it

    The majority of guitar based instrumental music is dog shit wank and is super boring. I can appreciate the talent that goes into it but I feel like some people just make instrumental music because they can't figure out how to structure a song.

    Anything old black metal, pretty much similar to knightbrolaire. It's just bad. Shut up

    A Wolf Amongst Raven's was a more listenable album then any other After the Burial album and is their only truly good album with some good songs sprinkled around here and there. Especially when you listen to the something like Behold the Crown off Evergreen. Shit had me rolling with how bad that song is. Sounds like a kid just discovered pinch harmonics

    As much as I love Periphery, I think Periphery 3 is an awful album that feels rushed, especially lyrically, and I basically don't want to listen to any of that album except maybe Absolomb. The lyrics on that album are straight fucking cringe half the time like Motormouth. Great fucking instrumental, terrible fucking lyrics.

    Common Man's Collapse from Veil is a god awful riff soup album with awful production values. iD is better in basically every way imaginable

    Bring Me The Horizon is shit, has always been shit, and will always be shit no matter how many times they change genre's to make emo kids think they're amazing

    OOF. That felt good haha. I usually just respect people's opinions but yeah it's nice to vent

    For me it is mostly everything that is considered prog metal nowadays or djent. Can't get into any of these bands. Animals as Leaders, for example.

    I dunno about *most* people *loving* their albums, but can we talk about Staind for a second? Some cool songs totally getting shat up by Aaron Lewis' minor 3rd of vocal range.

    I blame Eddie Vedder for the Staind guy, the Creed guy and a whole generation of shitty vocalists.

    I always lumped Aaron Lewis in "wants to be Maynard" contingent that was emerging in nu-metal & buttrock at the time.

    Mike Mushok and his sig guitars are the only good thing to come from Staind. Maybe the riff from Mudshovel too..
