ManÖ Amebix ďAriseĒ is a flawless album.  Just the dark, apocalyptic vibe is what most crust/UK82 bands go for but donít come close.  They arenít really a crust band in Ďsoundí though.  Axe man is such a killer opening song:

Pretty tarnished by their singers Holocaust denial though. 

Personally, I like hardcore thatís just lightning speed punk rockÖ fast, snotty and not a trace of metal.

The power remains and Arise were my favorite albumís and still are. When I heard about The Baron being a denier was a deep hurt I felt as that band helped me through a lot of pain as a kid.

I realize over the years the same bands here and there arenít as poignant and great as they use to be.

Gwar was cool as an angsty kid and their vhsís were kinda cool but then again so was GG Allin and I look back and roll my eyes 👀 in disgust.

Iíve definitely heard a shit load of bands via traveling and just being right place right time much to my chagrin some of those same bandís I wouldnít touch them with a ten foot pole.

I really hate Led Zeppelin and those big arena bandís Def Leopard Scorpions pretty much those terrible hair cock rock bands suck ass.

GNR, Motley Crue, Europe, never been a fan of that ilk, I like Judas Priest but but the latter bandís are trash.

So someone mentioned they didnít understand Dystopia, Iíll try to explain my fascination with them.

Theyíve got a great sound of blending sludge doom and crusty metal, the self loathing and depression really resonates with me some of the misanthropy Iíve felt over the years as well is quite resounding in their music.

Some people can agree and some not \__<o-0>__/ itís not my business to convince others my preference but I would say if youíre not in to the crusty stuff try listening to their self titled album the last one and itís more death metal than sludge/doom.

I've been listening to punk/ hardcore since... 1985 I think? or 1984? My unpopular opinions are:
-I don't like the Ramones. I've always not liked them. I know they influenced this and that, but they do exactly 0 for me. I even saw them in 1990 I think, because all my buds were so hyped, but I just stood there trying to count how many songs may be left.
-Also not that big on the Clash. There are some songs that I like, but just not into them overall and own 0.
-Not sure if this is a thing or not, but I've seen (online and in real life) that it is "cool" to say Ron Reyes is the best Black Flag singer. I think he was easily the worst. I do think Rollins was the best (Damaged), but the music changed a lot during his tenure. The 1982 demos with him singing are awesome. (also a big fan of Dez singing and Keith Morris too, but Ron I could not stand)
-PiL was a great band. Way more interesting than the Pistols were, although I was a fan.

Again, everyone's different and those are my opinions. I know my distaste of the Ramones has been deemed sacrilege, but what are you gonna do? If you don't like it, you don't like it. I've been in a lot of stupid arguments over the years for that one, usually with the :
"How can you not like the Ramones?"
"Easily" - me


I'm way more into the UK82 style (Exploited, GBH, Discharge, Broken Bones) and old Hardcore punk stuff (Minor Threat, Cro-Mags, old Agnostic Front, Sheer Terror, Circle Jerks, 7 Seconds, Adolescents, old Suicidal) and also the Accused, Septic Death, Napalm Death.. oh and Dystopia also! BUT also.. i love 80s music (Duran Duran, Alphaville, A-Ha, the Smiths etc) and 70s classic rock stuff (Marshall Tucker Band, Skynyrd etc) AND Beethoven as well. Also my favorite band of all time is probably Pink Floyd so there is that too.

I kinda roll my eyes at people who praise her. Nothing against her at all, but I don't feel like she contributed as much to their sound as some claim.

There is literally new music coming out every day, from whatever genre you could imagine and from bands you didnít yet know you liked.

Debating the merits of 30-40 year old bands and albums seems pretty useless to me unless you are doing an essay about it for your Music History class.

Unpopular opinion? Or should we discuss whether moving to Coral Records was better or worse for Buddy Hollyís sound?

I back this, for those who are complaining about not finding something new youíll are not going deep enough thereís always something new you havenít heard before if you can dig deep in the rabbit hole.

Sure itís not popular but Iíve heard a great number of underground artists needing their comeup.

I don't know. I just don't listen to rap, and what I hear isn't what I used to like. Doesn't mean there aren't still plenty of good new rappers out there, I just don't know about them. I could be wrong, but this goes back to the first point.

I feel like I'm too old for rap now. Rap is a young mans genre, and while I can still enjoy the stuff I grew up with (mid 90's-late 00's), I have no interest in finding new rappers. So many things that made rap exciting when I was a teen are things I have absolutely no interest in as a boring mid 30s dude.

Lyrics in general are lost on me. I don't care what you say as long as everything sounds good. Rap to me is the only genre where lyrics matter.

I have been very much enjoying RTJ in the recent years, I think they represent something that is different and fresh and current and they can put you in a good head nodding mood and then bum you out on some real shit you needed to hear too. To me they are very mainstream so I imagine everyone would be aware of them but just in case someone doesn't know what I'm talking about I'll link a song below.

But yeah I've fallen of the rap wagon while getting older too, mumble rap and autotune crap and all that.

Probably been said on here already, but New Order is superior to Joy Division. I feel like a lot of younger people recognize this, but it is something I've noticed a lot of old heads get bummed on.

Prefab Sprout is one of the most underrated bands of all time.

Danzig's output outside of The Misfits isn't as good as The Misfits, but The Misfits stuff that Danzig recorded solo is the best Misfits.

Disclose is better than Discharge.

I back this, I wouldnít say New Order is superior to Joy Division but New Order is definitely talented.

Disclose is very much superior to Discharge.

I think the hard part with Joy Division is that they released all their best songs as singles, so their albums, which I like, aren't "great" when they could have been.

That's a good jam right there. Thanks for reminding of those G's.
Funny thing for me when I listen to 70's stuff is I almost automatically light a cig and wish I was still care free enough to smoke ganja and drink. I am assuming part of it, is it reminds me of my dad's style.
