if this is raging against the dying of the light, lay me out now

This evening, I have decided that Death Metal is one of the reasons that I choose to no longer share a house with young men on a permanent basis, however polite they are.

Sorry Steg, I know that probably makes me a philistine.

  4. I think you're quite within your rights. I love a bit of metal, but I'm more old school than that. Zeppelin, Sabbath, etc, (no Maiden or ACDC though, thanks. And NO Dio.) Even some System of a Down is OK when in the mood.

    I love Marilyn Manson, but there's a tune there, you don't get tunes in Death Metal, just growling and goatees and stupid costumes.

  6. I must admit a strange fascination with it. Huffy sister likes that sort of thing so a car journey with her is inevitably conducted without conversation (which isn't necessarily a bad thing and it does mean we normally get to our destination without having had a row already).

    It is the price you pay to be surrounded by posh todger. I have no sympathy.

  8. Philistine? Not a bit of it. Whatever I listen to I insist upon melody and a certain amount of subtlety (sometimes). This does not include bands who only go *clears throat* "RAAAAAARGH" continually. It's just too noisy, man!

  12. What exactly the hell is the difference between Heavy Metal, Thrash metal and Death Metal...?

    Is the last one terminal...?

    ...and I wouldn't class Led Zep as heavy metal, it's far too good!

  14. I'm having enough trouble figuring out Son 2's interest in Dragonforce. I think the only band my sons & I both like is Queen.
