    Metal Heads Unite!

    This is for all the metal heads and head bangers of eMpTyBeeR to use and abuse. Share your metal health wealth and experiences here.

    Big news: Black Sabbath has reformed (Ozzy on vocals). Their new album "13" is due to be released in June. The recently released single, "God is dead?" is great and I've heard it on Boneyard XM radio and watched it on video clips, both live and studio version on youtube.

    Geezer is the man. Ozzy, Toni, and Bill were just supporting cast.

    True but these guys are ancient so it's no shock to see at least one of them out of the picture. I was fortunate enough to see all 4 original members perform at at least one of the Ozzfests they reunited for.

    As long as Iommi is there, it's Sabbath. He is the beginning and end of metal.

    I'm gonna have to go with Tony if I gotta put a finger on any of them. We saw Heaven and Hell perform at the L.A. Forum a few years back. We were able to get right up against the railing on Tony's side of the stage. He made eye contact with us and gave us the "it's all good" head nod several times throughout the show. What a class act he is.

    Alright already I must confess I love most all metal" New and old and rock and classic rock and alternative. Basically everything but rap. I was lucky enough to see Black Sabbath in 1979' when OZZI was the lead. He left the band right after that. I have been anticipating this new tour with him back . Although it won't be the same as back in the day it shoulf still be one for the books.

    I don't have anything to share...grunge rock was where it was at when I was in college.

    But when I think of metal heads, this is what comes to mind.

    I'm not big into the scream rock that's popular today such as As I Lay Dying and Atreu. I can do some Lamb Of God. About the "newest" rock (heavy metal?) I listen to are bands like System of a Down and Disturbed. Everything else is 15+ years old, with most of it being 25+ years old.

    True metal heads will argue that RJ Dio was a better singer than Ozzy.

    ^ I say that they were/are both great in their own ways. I got to see RJD perform twice not long before he passed away. The last time I saw him, he was pasty and weak looking. He performed well, though. I was seated near the end of an isle close to the stage and I ran down to the stage as he was slapping fives to the crowd. My hand was the last one he slapped that night.

    That's awesome. I got to see Dio with Motorhead and Iron Maiden. It doesn't get much more metal head than that.

    My 40 year old ears still enjoy Machine head, Sepultura, Lamb of God, and the Like. Ministry is also a favourite.

    I heard a cut off the new Black Sabbath album today. With Ozzi on lead. Very much like the old day's. I was way surprised how much so, the dude still has it.

    Saw Ozzy solo, and with the full Black Sabbath line-up. Saw Heaven & Hell, and saw Dio on the "Last in Line" tour - opening for Twisted Sister if I remember.

    Saw Anthrax a bunch of times - and they always were fantastic. Saw most of the other big names - Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica, Exodus, Testament, White Zombie etc etc etc

    Motorhead has always been my favorite. Lemmy has put out consistently awesome albums for like 40 years.

    Prong, Static X, Primus, Ministry - all fine bands.

    Even the older stuff - loved Alice Cooper's 'Killers' album for example. Also loved the early punk stuff - especially the Ramones (saw their last tour, too).

    Seems like not as much good new metal now. Lots of heavy guitars with guys with melodic voices singing about their feelings (meh). And still a bunch of cookie monster vocals in speed metal bands. I miss songs about interesting topics, like Iron Maiden used to do (or Anthrax still does).

    Metal head for ever.

    Big metalhead here but not so much into the classic stuff, much more into the experimental/doom/psychedelic side of metal. And a lot of black metal.
    BORIS
    Godflesh
    Zoroaster
    Wolves in the Throne Room
    Nachtmystium
    Sleep
    Red Fang
    Truckfighters

    Got kinda out of metal for a few years but all of this stoner metal revival sucked me right back into my old ways.

    lookin forward to a cat named Marzi (who used to gig and hang out in houston when we were all in our 20s) and Phil Anselmo's new band.

    kinda cool to see ministry mentioned. that's one band that always finds its way in my player every year when i'm riding well and ready to scare myself on new lines.

    Deep Purple with John Lord on the Hammond and Black Sabbath... on 8 track in the early 70's in my buddies Z28 Camaro... yeah, kinda dates me, but that's what we had back in high school. Dunno if Ronnie Montrose counts, with Sammy Hagar.

    I grew up in the 80's in Texas also. My first fav bands were KISS and Aerosmith! Then all the 80's metal - 90's alternative / grunge.... Went to tons of shows, and played in bands, mainly in the early 90's ( Anorexic Café ). Now in my 40's I listen to an eclectic mix of everything from the 70's to today.

    Right now in my truck I have:
    MASTODON -ZZTOP -NEIL YOUNG -DOWN -BOB MARLEY -CLUTCH- SWORD- RADIOHEAD- BLACK SABBATH- KISS- BAD COMPANY- SOUDGARDEN- DEFTONES- MASTERS OF REALITY- AEROSMITH- BAD BRAINS- FAITH NO MORE- 311- DARRIN KOBETICH (personal friend... google his music) - CARDIGANS- HELMET- TOOL- etc.

    The Black Sabbath concert last night was fantastic. Still reeling from it. The fact that I went to bed at 2am and got up at 5 am for a full day of work does not feel too good, though. They performed flawlessly and their set included 3 songs from "13". Ozzy's voice cracked during a few songs but it's a wonder he can sing at all after being on tour all this time and with all the shouting he does on stage. Such a true entertainer the Ozzman is!

    Sounds like fun, (besides the waking up part.) Sweet thread.

    Sabbath, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Anthrax, System of a Down, I can get behind all these guys.

    But really, no King Diamond?

    Really!
    As awesome as OZZI is he is human after all. I heard on his latest tour he demands there be Midol on tap back stage. BTW The Stones gave him this idea and he ran [walked] with it.

    Slightly higher than propped-up corpses, I suppose. Hawg will have to chime in on how far they exceeded that one.

    Considering that Ozzy has been abusing again, he sang darn well. I've seen Sabbath at least 6 times now. This performance was as good as any of the others from the past. Can't focus everything on the Ozzman, though. The band as a unit was truly classic, again. Missing Bill Ward, unfortunately.

    Nightwish just ins't the same without Turunen. Hopefully their next album makes up for the disappointment of Imaginaerum.

    I saw Sabbath back in their heyday of 1979'. They put on an amazing show from what I remember . But that was when they were in their prime with full original band intact. I can't imagine them putting on a show as good as that after age and years of,alcohol and drug abuse has set in. But I commend them on picking back up and rocking on. Few bands do and even fewer never have a gap of retirement. But continued rocking steaight through like the Stones and Aerosmith. Sure not heavy metal but still worthy in their own style.

    when i was a wee lad, my brothers were metal heads. the older one said "you will NOT like pop music...you will like metal". He wasnt so much into the screaming thrash shit, but metallica, pantera, ministry, etc. were our favorites. i mostly got into grunge after that, but i still go back and have a listen to the songs of my youth

    which reminds me.....

    DJ, late 70's was when Ozzy was in one of his heavy abuse periods. He'd missed practice sessions, he even didn't show up on some recording days. That was the beginning of the end of the original Sabbath line up. My understanding is that he messed up frequently on his vocals while performing.

    I've seen them from in the 90's til now and trust me, they still got it.

    Hawg, I'm not saying Sabbath aren't putting our great shows today. Hell I'm sure the rock the house. I wouldn't expect anything different. All I know is when I saw them in 1979' they were in their prime. The show I saw was amazing without screw up's. Ozzi was 31 at the time with a youthful original lineup of band members. Ozzi is now 64 years old.

    I know drug and alcohol abuse was their m.o. But one can't deny the effects that age and decades of drugs and alcohol abuse has on performance. Like I said the show I saw was spot on and if they play today like they did then it would be a great show. I would go see them just for nastalgia reasons. I can't help but think of how Ozzi was in his reality show several years back. The dude was messed up. Either from current drug abuse or from years of it.

    Ozzy was already on the downhill slide by '79. After Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath things began to slip. No album is more polished, more balanced, more perfected than that one.

    Definitely metal fan. pantera and ministry are favorites. damageplan would've been cool to see. rip dime. used to go see Pantera in dives between dallas and houston in early 90s. miss those days! phil is a legendary frontman. gonna go check out his new crew, the illegals. a great guy, local houstonian, and who we used to jam with in music stores, Marzi is Phil's new guitarist. he's a beast! \m/!

    saw sabbath once with dio and ozzy w/randy, jake, and zakk each on their first tour out. those guys definitely gave ozzy new life each time.

    Hey Hawg I did some research on the tour I saw. It wasn't 1979' but rather 1978' in Denver and Van Halen with Diamond Dave was the headliner with Black Sabbath opening up. Awesome concert and as I have read two of your favorite bands together. Back then those two bands were both at the top so really neither were technically considered the headliner. All I know is we went to see Van Halen and Black Sabbath happened to be opening up.

    WOW, I just bought tickets to go see Sabbath again! My usual concert buddy was bummed he couldn't make it for the last show so we looked online and found even better seats for less money and more than half a time closer to home! I couldn't help myself, I pushed the "purchase tickets" button...

    Speaking of metal I wish Metallica would record a new album. They have been on tour for what seems decades. Korn has a new album out in October.

    I liked Black Sabbath and Deep Purple back in high school, but never liked much metal.
    I tend toward more mellow stuff.
    I never understood grunge, but love Neil Young.

    I've seen Van Screamlin only once and it was a performance to forget, no doubt. Dave was so freakin' drunk when he came out on stage that he could barely stand, much less sing. This was in 1983.

    BTW, that particular concert had a line up that has never been matched.

    Tough question because I like every single song on every single album they made.

    But here goes, in no particular order:

    *A National Acrobat
    *Megalomania
    *God is Dead?
    *Children Of The Grave
    *The Wizard

    Notice how I picked all Ozzy/Sab songs? While I absolutely adore Dio/Sab, it's in a different category to me. It's faster than original Sabbath but darn near as good.

    Top 5 Dio/Sab songs? Not possible. Heaven & Hell and Dehumanizer are so darn good it's as though all the songs flow as one long song on each album.

    oh, and R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio

    Both times I saw Van Halen were with DLR and both times they rocked. David puts on an amazing show. One of the best front men ever IMO.

    i grew up in the 80s. therefore, my early influences were the founders of "metal", as it was called then...zeppelin, floyd, sabbath...

    then, someone turned me on to metallica, megadeth, slayer, anthrax, maiden... and then pantera showed up on the scene and ive never been the same.

    nowadays i tend to listen to a ton of lamb of god, chimaira, hatebreed, killswitch.

    always have room for some corrosion of conformity, rage, ministry, white zombie, monster magnet, fear factory... the list goes on.

    Sounds similar to me Terry, I'm expecting Hawg to post after he returns from his 208th time seeing Sabbath tonight.

    Of course Hawg's gonna post about the repeat Sabbath performance.

    We could not believe how good the seats were. They were just 25' off the corner of the stage. That made the show extra special because you could see each member's reactions and expressions. They were a little bit tighter tonight than last week. Ozzy had less issues with his voice, and he was much more active tonight. I haven't heard good things about the sound system at the Sports Arena but let me tell you it sounded fantastic. Tonight's show was the last of the American Tour.

    1 metal band i've been getting into lately is Bullet for my Valentine. Great stuff, I would suggest listening to Your Betrayal or Waking the Demon. I would post up links, but I'm currently in China on business and you-tube is forbidden in this country.

    Here it is folks. Your last chance ever to see the band who are the pioneers of that hard/metal sound. "The End" tour is coming! Sadly, Bill will not being beating the skins on this final tour.

    Just picked up the new Spock's Beard (progressive), Oblivion Particle, and the new Symphony X (symphonic metal), Underworld. Lots of showy solos on that one.

    I'm into trading burnt CDs, so if anyone wants to hear either or both, pm me.

    Metal Heads Unite!-sabbath_001.jpg

    The "1" is for front row.

    $6.50 . . . . . lol

    And that was exactly how much my friend paid for the tickets. He slept overnight in the parking lot of the ticket agency.

    Saw them again in 78' (Anaheim Stadium with Boston, Van Halen, and Sammy Hagar), 80' (Heaven & Hell tour [w/RJD] with Blue Oyster Cult preceding them, and I would swear the UFO opened the show), and once more last September at the Hollywood Bowl.

    They were still excellent at the Bowl, but it wasn't very loud. Or maybe it was loud and I couldn't tell ;~)

    I used to lean a bit more toward Deep Purple, but I think I might prefer Black Sabbath more these days.

    Never saw Deep Purple, but have seen Rainbow.

    Yep, I saw Sabbath for the 78' tour in Denver with the original Van Halen. This was the last tour OZZY was lead vocalist until 1985 for OZZ Fest. I remover those concerts only costing $8-$15 max. Depending on how many bands were in the lineup. Kinda makes me cringe at today's concert prices.
