|If The Avengers Were Metal...|
Saw it twice in two days. It was that good.
|1||Wolves in the Throne Room|
Captain America --
Wolves may look scary, but their heart is in the right place. Though not ones to outsmart you, they've got plenty of muscle despite being pacifists.
Iron Man --
These guys are all about the brains. Tomas Hakke is their arc reactor, powering a very technical approach that kicks all sorts of ass while staying a step ahead of you.
The Destroyers of All
The Hulk --
One minute Jamie Saint Merat is laying down calm, beautiful percussion textures, and suddenly BAM! you're being bludgeoned by a brutal assault of death metal and flailing dissonance. Ulcerate's genius lies in their intricate complexity, but few match their brute force when they let loose.
Twilight of the Thunder God
Thor -- ...duh.
Wages of Sin
Black Widow --
Angela Gossow is easy on the eyes until she starts breaking your face with death growls. Actually, that''s still pretty hot.
There's nothing superhuman about Giant Squid, but they always seem to hit the spot.
Nick Fury --
They're definitely up to something, and it's definitely over your head. Aaron Turner runs the show in post-metal, and whether his plans work perfectly or not, they're always badass and worth keeping an eye on.
Man, they have a knack for pissing people off, but there are still moments where you have to admire their gall. They've tried everything in the book, and somehow it just never seems to work out.
|Loki A7X rofl.. Interesting list idea i'll give you that.|
|While I admire your icon...|
Some of these albums are less than accomadating for me. Still, I saw it and it suits. In particular Isis and Ulcerate for their character.
|ahaha fucking awesome besides 8|
|"worth keeping an eye on."|
I see see what you did there.
|Giant Squid m/|
|I considered making Dr. Luke Loki, but he's not nearly clever enough.|
|Potato, do you ever agree with anything I write?|
|uh, yeah that's the one. he's not actually your cousin is he?|
|Nice list. Lol'd pretty hard at 8.|
|@system, are you referring to me criticising Dr. Luke? yes, I stand by that. He's made several boring albums. But if the guy knows / is related to him, then I'm happy to talk about and gain insight into one of the most popular producers in music today. He must be doing something right.|
|I'll take your word for it. Not to offend, cause he's probably a great guy (people don't work with you multiple times if you're a dick). If you see him, tell him Alex Newton congratulates him on his success, but thinks he should be more adventurous and exciting next time around. And to give KP a hug for me.|
|Well that's because most of them probably are =\ I know he probably doesn't care about artistic merit as long as people keep hiring him, since it's his job and all. Oh well, I guess we've still got Matt Bayles and Turner for that.|
|.__. I'm not sure I could find that information anywhere to prove you wrong if I tried. and yes, I saw that he played on SNL. that's not to be taken lightly.\m/|
|I suppose you learn something new every day.|
