is it just me, or has all the recent metal just sucked?  the last decent things i heard were serj tankian (although he was a bit softcore), and the ozzy album that came out ages ago (still a bit softcore for my tastes).  i was also a bit fond of the trivium cd, and the most recent slayer album (christ illusion)

You're listening to shit metal, that is all.

@eck: Yes, yes, but we are NOT mind readers, and can go only by what you type. And from the bands that you initially listed...IN MY OPINION, some of those bands didn't quite scream true metal. Don't think I've ever thought of System of a Down as Metal. More Alt. Rock. Ozzy was one of the starter ups of metal back in the day, but even now, his stuff seems more rock than what most consider metal. Also, some of the bands you listed above, (Static X, and Puddle of Mud) still leave me questioning tastes in what Metal really is. And I don't think you have to go into such detail in naming every single metal band to cover your case, man. Remember, there are some opinionated metal heads here, so when you say "all recent metal sucked", you have to know there is going to be a response back. Not everyone is always in agreement.
    However, I leave judgment to the eyes of the beholder, so like what you like, and try not to be offended by other's opinions. We all have different tastes, and opinions so leave it at that. Also, the silly debate over what is and isn't metal is VERY played out, so let's call it square, and laugh it off...ay?

I dunno if Puscifer is metal but if you like Tool they're worth checking out.

oh tool. I am big fans of them, and a perfect circle. Quite good to pass the time with I do say.

Have you checked out Sepultura or Krisiun?  Both good Brazilian metal bands.

So...
what's the deal with the ripper thread/post getting so much attention(http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=5639.0), when some other posts don't even get a reply....
 :yell:

we need a good "fad" on the forum to check out like the chibi avatar fad of 2004(?), or the fighter sprite thing a couple years ago,
just a thought..

Because anger elicits a lot more of a response then neutral feelings.

my point exactly, surely this forum isn't for humilating users
