    But the one exception is Agent Steel because, though I didn’t always agree with the message, I believe that they were sincere, and not trying to garner fandom from mere morbidly-

    Btw, do you know their material?

    I don't think I 've listened to a single song of theirs. Can you provide something representative?

    Well I did in this thread (faux indignation)- two pages ago.

    Back in the mid-80’s while on leave, s friend mine who collected vinyl showed me this album which the vinyl was blue, the cover of which depicted a swarm of stainless steel locusts descending on earth from space, the first of which had blood on its mandibles-

    Fast forward over thirty years later when I first hear it on YouTube-

    I can't believe I missed posts of you in the metalheads thread, of all places. That was an interesting listen. It's classified as pure 100% American thrash metal.

    Now, now relatively contemporary material from the early 2000’s- from the album Order of the Illuminati -







    The last one I believe is truly heartfelt- look at the lyrics if you get the time-

    Because, just like a lot of genres, it can descend into profit pandering bunk (you know what I mean, but wishing to be polite for any under age lurkers).

    So for me, dark/death metal has descended into WFC wrestling where they go from meaningless extreme to extreme for a buck (or a mark, krona ... etc.$

    Yannis- since you’re a bro, I’ll do the last for you-

    Now, whether or not it is as the typical dark metal morbidity bunk, I can say from my personal experience that this rings true, whether it is was the military or society itself- thus I submit the lyrics of “Human Bullet”-

    White light, mission classified
    Neural probe, map your mind target
    Run the maze, my loyal pet
    Recall your orders and the rest forget
    So close to the perfect crime
    A human bullet in a chambered mind
    An appetite for profanity
    Everything you were made to be
    Fracturing the pristine mind
    Crack the shell and reach inside
    Manipulating all we find to do or die
    Conflict borne of man machines
    Solidifies our chosen scheme
    It's so much more than what
    It seems behind your eyes
    White light, falling star
    The you, you knew is now the slave you are
    (Dancing)
    To a dirge that sings within
    A waltz of damage just beneath the skin
    (Rhythmic death)
    Death tapped out by your puppet toes
    Another current in the undertow
    Below the waves we weave the curse
    To drown the world and choke the earth
    Assembling the fractured mind
    Puzzle equals suicide
    Create the killer from inside
    Some dreams must die
    Slaughtering ability
    Bred in you through trickery
    Surrender blindly, slake our greed
    And stain the skies
    Until we hear their cries
    (Dominate)
    While they believe our lies
    (Dominate)
    Salt and twist the knife
    (Dominate)
    Until the wound is ripe
    Above theocracy, we reign
    Sharing death, bearing pain
    In God's name all the heretics must die
    Behind democracy, we rule
    And communists we use as tools
    All the world's devoted to our crime
    And still we trust our minds
    We reign
    [Incomprehensible]
    Above theocracy, we reign
    Sharing death, bearing pain
    In God's name all the heretics must die
    Behind democracy, we rule
    And communists we use as tools
    All the world's devoted to our crime
    Behind theocracy, we reign
    Sharing death, bearing pain
    In God's name all the heretics must die
    Above democracy, we rule
    And communists we use as tools
    All the world's devoted to our crime
    And still we trust our minds, we trust our minds

    I don't think musicians that want to make money will try playing grindcore or technical death metal. People in these genres primarily do it for themselves and if people like it, that's cool. Going for the extremes is kind of like a challenge or competition I think, as in who will be the most extreme or brutal, which becomes increasingly difficult with the oversaturation from all these bands for more than a few years now. Most of this stuff has been already played and overplayed so it's hard to be creative and new. If these genres are ridiculous or not is a different discussion of course.

    I listened to the whole album more than a few times, my thoughts on it later. In this specific tune the vocalist reminded me of Coburn Pharr, the guy that did the vocals for the second Annihilator album, Never Neverland. By the way, I consider this record fantastic and the fact that I listened to it again after Agent Steel was a very welcome side effect. These Canadians are a highly recommended listen for more than a couple of reasons:

    You can listen to Never, Neverland for repentance. There's a song in it called "Reduced to Ash".

    Check out my post to eyvindwa in the “Pedals You Want to Try” thread last Sunday. It’s about two down from Marco’s post on the Plasma pedal. I believe you’ll find it amusing in light of our recent discussion-

    So, I bought the Priest album Unleashed in the East when I was 17, and to this day I can still appreciate this song for it’s intensity and poignancy- And I think Ian Hill deserves more credit than he gets-

    Similar to my previous submission this song moved me when I first heard it 1979- I later purchased the album in the fall of 1980. But it wasn’t until the latter part of the millennial decade that I discovered why I found it to be so poignant and powerful. It was Ozzy Osbourne’s tribute to his father who was dying of cancer at the time- ‘nuff said, now let’s let the music do the talking-

    He's got some tasty stuff on the bridge in this one. :cool:

    This is an underrated album in my opinion.

    Classic. I love the following cut from Unleashed In The East. I consider it very progressive (raining chord changes) and very heavy (guitars chugging). And I don't think it was played very often live after that era.
