    I stroll in, skim the thread and saw this. Well done version of The National Anthem. The counterpoints and harmonics between them sounded great. Clean too.

    Interesting and kinda cool that a few of the 80s Metallica tunes have Kirk's riffs he used in Exodus. Creeping Death, Trapped Under Ice, Master of Puppets and I also think Damage Inc has a riff of his in there too.

    I've never really thought about it, but it certainly wouldn't surprise me.

    So I wanted to be open minded and my friend and I checked out the bands you suggested. My friend is even more into Metal than I am so he can add an even more balanced perspective. Pretty much we listened to not only some of the newer stuff but the older stuff and you were right with a lot of the bands. They were more consistent but the consistency was in the generic nature of the riffs and drumbeats over time. It seems there's a certain brand of the Metal demographic who will always be satisfied as long as there's volume and fast playing. If you respect bands for just feeding you the same crap for years and years just to stay metal then more power to you. :grinthumb

    Just some questions so I can better understand the bands. Was Overkill noted for being innovative in the sense that they had a Lemmy clone and the first female vocalist in the Thrash genre. Seriously, the vocalist looks and sounds like Mr. Big mated with Lambchop! There's even a Kermit the Frog sounding vocalist so maybe they were kicked off the muppet show and became angry! :D

    Overkill-Elimination


    I've got to give it to them though. The vocalist sounds less like a girl later on but that's just because his vocals simply turned to shit. They are consistent with their fast generic riffs and volume though so that's something?

    Overkill-Electric Rattlesnake


    As for Kreator, well it made me appreciate Overkill more.......so that's something? Seriously though it looks like someone watched a lot of the Addams Family on acid and decided that it was Metal. Ooooh gothy misunderstood kids and devil signs and ACME acres dynamite that never explodes! :wtf: So once again generic symbols of ooooh so bad ass rebellion against my mommy Thrash Metal with boring riffs and billy goat gruffy vocals! Awesome! :guitar::metal::headbang

    Kreator-Enemy of God


    And Voivod, my God! I have to give credit! Each band sounds better after I look up another suggestion. Seriously this sounds like Layne Staley doing his best or worst William Shatner impression! :zzz:

    Voivod-Nothingface


    So here's one of the funniest videos my friend and I ever had the privilege of cracking up over. Seriously the death bunny, bad green screen public access looking worse than Cartoon Network stoner animation with random generic badass METALLLLLLL words were like a video and song by a band that parodies these type of bands would put out! :headbang:hb::oy::guitar::geetar:

    Voivod-Ravenous Medicine


    But I have to give credit where it's due. I went further back and they actually did evolve into something better as there was no way possible it could've gotten shittier from that point. Looking back at this song posted below even if this was the first time an instrument was created and a caveman figured out that they could make a sound other than grunting with their vocal cords this still wouldn't be ahead of it's time as excrement has always existed as long as humanity. So even though there are instruments and a f***tard screaming his bands name it's still not music! It's pooooooooooooop! :guitar::geetar::metal::oy::hb::dm::headbang

    VOOOOOOIIIIVOD!!!!! VOOOOOOOIIIIVOOOD!!!!! DEEEEEEERRRRPPPP!!!!!! vOOOOOOIIVOOOD!!!!!!

    VOOOOOOOIIIIIVOD-VOOOOOOIIIIIIVOD


    I'm a much worse person for going through that shit but I wanted to be fair. I will play Lulu on a loop to get that shit out of my brain! :bonk:
