Kai, I went out of my way to NOT say that metal sucks. Because I don't think it does. I think most of it just isn't for me is all.

Khar, I'm sorry if I sounded confrontational. Didn't mean to insult the band you linked to. As for Arcturus, I recognize the musical talent, but it's just not for me.

I've officially listened to every Anthrax song known to man to try to find that one song from the nineties that didn't sound horrible. They sound like a Slayer cover band. I want to die so much right now.
___

Oh, right. I read the translation of Die Eir Von Satan off of Aenima recently, and I have a newfound respect for Tool:

The Eggs of Satan

Half a cup of powdered sugar
One quarter teaspoo salt
One knifetip Turkish hash
Half a pound butter
One teaspoon vanilla-sugar
Half a pound flour
150 g ground nuts
A little extra powdered sugar
... and no eggs

Place in a bowl
Add butter
Add the ground nuts and
Knead the dough


Form eyeball-size pieces from the dough
Roll in the powdered sugar
and say the Magic Words:
"Sim sala bim bamba sala do saladim"

Place on a greased baking pan and
Bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes
...AND NO EGGS

Bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes
...and no eggs.

The one problem with Antrhax sounding like a Slayer cover band is that their songs don't suck nearly as hard as Slayer's.  I'd actually be really impressed if they did, and still somehow managed to make it.  I'm not actually familiar with Anthrax much, but I did see them open for Priest (with Ripper) and lost a lot of respect for them when their vocalist got a guy thrown out because he flicked off the vocalist.  What the fuck?

just to add my 2 cents (because they're useless in australia, and have been for well over a decade)...

I like Tool. I've only managed to hear Vicarious from their latest album, due to my inability to be a pirate at the moment. I wish their guitarist would learn a different riff. It seriously sounds like a blend of about 3 of their previous songs, and different lyrics. If their whole album sounds like that, i'd rather stick with lateralus.

I haven't heard of 2 of the 3 groups that were mentioned as the next step in fanboyism, but Dream Theater makes me wish I hadn't stopped taking drugs, because their stuff is too odd for me. Or maybe it's just the album "awake"s fault.

Overrated band --> Mars Volta. I'm sorry people, but to me, 15 minutes of dischordant needling does not a song make.

I love me some discordant noodling.

The person on the radio, when mentioning that the new tool album had leaked said that she used to like tool, and that the new album was (positive adjectives but said in a way that made it sound like it was kinda crap). This is exactly how I felt after hearing one of the singles. IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE A 10 MINUTE SONG AT LEAST MAKE IT A GOOD TEN MINUTES.

Hey, longer song = more epic!

Or am I thinking of a different genre here?

I'm a firm believer in that Maynard should stop writing his own stuff and instead join Alice In Chains. Did you hear their benefit show where he did a couple of songs? Glee. I swear, if anyone can stand up to the pressure of following up to Layne Staley, it's him. Especially since he's already famous.

No, but it is completely redundant. That's like saying, "well, that's just your opinion" when someone says "<insert band here> sucks". I mean, he/she wrote it. Whose opinion do you think it is? It's one of those things that everyone knows and therefore assumes they don't have to write it down every post. Of course, someone always comes along and has to type it because he or she is indignant about their band being criticised.

Tool is the bottom rung of pretentious heavy music. When a Tool fan gets too pretentious, or older than 15, he gets into Mike Patton idolisation. Then, the paths bifurcate. Some go to Devin Townsend, some to Dream Theater, a few to Ayreon.

Also, a small list of things Tool aren't:

Original, innovative, particularly clever, metal.


Uhm...heh.  I'd venture to say that the music occasionally has some degree of emotion to it.  

Unlike Dream Theater.  Every DT song I have ever heard has struck me as utterly lifeless and dull.  I do not honestly give a shit that Petrucci can play 16th notes at 400 BPM or do tapping solos with his wang or whatever it is that he specializes in.  It may make him edgy with the crowd of teenage males who practice shred drills in their bedroom all day, seemingly dispersing only to post about their hot love for him on message boards.  But honestly, I have yet to hear an emotionally captivating Dream Theater song.  Feel free to make an attempt at converting me, if you will.

Tool propelled my interests in music a lot at an early age.  Yeah, Maynard's pointlessly obscure philosophical banter is annoying, and everything.  I just don't get all the hatred towards them.

Your point is valid. DT is over-hyped and not really any good. And Tool are a lot on the pretentious side too ...

I actually feel that the hatred is not so much focused on Tool but on their fans. And I have to say ... tool-fans in my experience are the people who invented 400bpm wang-solos.

Mind you, I'm sure that not every Tool fan is a wang-soloing, pretentious twat. But it's just the ones I know, personally, are ...

Not that kind of groupie. Trust me.

TOOL AREN'T METAL FFFRSSSHHH. >_<

There's definitely a subgenre of annoying fans around in the worlds of metal, prog and related, 'heavy' styles. They will be people entirely obsessed with one band and its side projects, or a certain musicians work across many projects. Bands most often honoured by such fans generally include:

Tool/APC (Maynard James Keenan)
Dream Theater/Liquid Tension Experiment/Explorers Club
Nine Inch Nails
Mr. Bungle/Fantomas/Faith No More/etc. (Mike Patton)
The Dillinger Escape Plan
Ayreon/Ambeon/Star One (Arjen Lucassen)
Strapping Young Lad/Devin Townsend Band (Devin Townsend)
At The Drive In/The Mars Volta
Edge of Sanity/Dan Swano's Moontower/Nightingale/ETC. (Dan Swano)

I'm sure a mental picture of the type of person I mean is already emerging. I'm not knocking all fans of these groups by the way, I own excessive amounts of albums by a good few of them. It's just...well, I think you know what I mean.

I'll have you guys know that I listen to Dream Theater specifically because of the emotion behind the music.  If you can listen to Awake without being at least somewhat affected emotionally, then I contend that you are dead.  I hate it when Dream Theater tries to be proggy and technical, because they're HORRIBLE at it.  Seriously.  They just don't have the musicianship or musical ability to successfully pull off prog.  All of their odd time signature bits seem incredibly forced, and their long unison passages are stupid and pointless.

If you wan't prog that's well-done and sounds good, go for Planet X.

I don't actually get the whole "Dream Theater have no emotion to their music" thing, but apparently a lot of people think the same thing, so I guess they're just a damn extreme example of "a Take it, or leave it" band. And I think I am pretty safe against the whole "Petrucci fanboy" syndrome, because I seriously do not know what the hell tremelo picking is. Apparently it is one of those things that other fans jerk off to, because it is the thing he does better than God. I still maintain the best reasons to listen to Dream Theater are the goddamned honky tonk keyboard solos

Also, Khar, you forgot Rush fans. We Rush fans are also obnoxious jerks as well. I just thought I'd point that out while you're crushing my soul

Wow, that Arcturus band is awesome, thanks for introducing them to me, KharBevNor.  Do you know any other bands that sound like that?


Try Borknagar, Vintersorg and to a lesser extent Ulver (hit and miss that you'll find something quite like that from them. Not hit and miss that they will be consistently awesome).

The post-black metal scene is generally just awesome.

Those bits piss me off because they're just in there to be different, it seems.  It's like when people dress up crazily, and it's obvious that they're doing it just to get attention.  I die a bunch inside when everybody fawn all over them.  I will contend to my dying day that the best reason to listen to Dream Theater is James LaBrie, the singer.  I seriously want to have his children, and I don't even care if that's possible.  Even discounting how high he goes, he has such an incredible control over his voice, the vibrato and everything.

I listen to, and enjoy, both Tool and Dream Theater. I also listen to, and enjoy, a lot of other music.

Does this make me a pretentious, annoying fan?

Man, I love Labrie as well, but it is funny as hell watching him have a teste blowout. At one point during 6.00 on the Awake DVD, he just has the biggest blowie you've ever heard. I put that one bit on repeat and watched it for ten minutes.

Although personally if we are going to be serious here, my favorite thing about Dream Theater is Myung. His bass playing is just fucking perfect, and never makes any attempt to be showy for the sheer hell of it, which makes him pretty much the most unique member of the band.

That is something with which I agree.  I don't necessarily like everything he does (a lot of the tapping stuff I think sounds kind of silly), but he's never out there being all "look at me!"

oh silly me and all this time i was thinking that the name tool just meant tools, NOT A BAND.  I guess now I can stop thinking of "that new tool song" as being hammers and anvils, LOL
