You couldn't be more wrong, Koloss turned out really well and its a truly solid album. "I Am Colossus" is a bitchin tune, not the best though.

because of its atmosphere, crushing power, brilliant lyrics and insane technicality, while "breakdowncore" is all about 0010101010010010101010 and dumb lyrics about watching someone sucking someone's dick

fagcore bands probably couldn't tell you what for 4/4 means, let alone write crushingly-powerful, poly-meter, insane songs. Your comment makes me suspect you have no knowledge of music at all.

Emmure - Drug Dealer Friend Lyrics


I wanna watch you suck his dick
I know you fucking love it, bitch

Choke, do you see me now?
Choke, do you see me now?
Choke, do you see me now?
Choke, do you see me now?

I wanna watch you suck his dick
I know you fucking love it, bitch

Do you see me now?
Do you see me now?
Do you see me now?
You fucking bitch

Do you see me know?
Look at your mind fucking eyes
Do you see me know?
Look at your mind fucking eyes

Do you see me know?
Look at your mind fucking eyes
Do you see me know?
Look at your mind fucking eyes

I said they probably couldn't tell you what 4/4 means. What I'm getting at is they're largely not musically talented, knowledgeable, or professional for that matter.

LOL. You make it seem like because they use different time signatures, it's something special. Just because they are chugging in an awkward rhythm does not make the music complex. Only the drummer is doing anything complicated.

@TheSpirit

Dude, you haven't said a single thing about Meshuggah that hasn't be said 30 billion times by people who share the same opinion as you. That's not to say your opinion isn't valid... all opinions are. But it's nothing revolutionary, and thus doesn't need to be repeated ad nauseam.

You've always been one of my favorite users on this site. I've read a ton of your reviews and discovered a lot of awesome music through your ratings. You're generally a fantastic contributor to this site and I was really sad when you left the staff. Whether or not you agree with me in this thread, I just thought I say that I appreciate what you've done for the site and hope you stick around in the future :D

Song isn't that great, btw. The first part/riff isn't that great and kinda gets boring, but the second part/riff is much more enjoyable. m/

Yeah I agree with this. I enjoy this song quite a bit but the slower, chugging riff kinda overstays it's welcome after awhile. Especially after the awesome second part that you're talking about. I feel like they should've built on that momentum instead of just going back to the opening riff again to end it.

It hasn't been a joke if people have benefited from it, and I certainly have. There's a number of bands I discovered through you that I still listen to regularly and I personally thought you were one of the best reviewers on the site. I'm sorry that you feel it was a waste, but just know that the simple fact that I have taken so much from your contributions validates all of your effort. Furthermore, I'm sure I'm not the only one.
