    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.

    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.

    Metal Heads Unite!

    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.

    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!
