Cannibal Corpse's new stuff is horrible, I saw them in London last year and left halfway through their set, it was terrible.
My metal heroes are people like Kerry King, Max Cavalera, Tom G Warrior and the guys from Godflesh, their stuff is primitive, brutal and fucking loud, the way metal should be.

I don't care if you're playing in an off time signature, if it sounds shit then its not clever.
I don't care how long you spent getting the right tone on your guitar, it still sounds like shit to me.

Tune down, play hard and let the details work themselves out.
Pretty much. Nothing kills something good faster than dickheads showing off and idiots who don't understand that sometimes less is more.

Somehow, this thread also reminds me of this:

Sums it up nicely don't ya think?

Who cares? Anyone that says they don't wank is a lying twat. Wank hard, wank often.
