While All The Gods Were Sleeping, You Tried To Fool The Weak...

The combination of Metalcore and Deathcore has turned the modern Extreme Metal scenes into a gathering of underachieving, boring, tasteless pussies. I am not taking back a single thing I just said. Sure, like every other era in existence, there are exceptions to these allegations I have made. There are a few bands from both genres who actually seem somewhat inspired, regardless of how they've been pigeonholed into a comparison booth with bands who are complete shit. Deathcore has bands like Whitechapel and The Acacia Strain and Metalcore has bands like Darkest Hour, Walls Of Jericho and Ekotren. Although not much, there is at least a small blip of hope for these horrible excuses for musical genres. Deathcore is, at the very best, the retarded stepson of Death Metal who gets to spend their days getting beaten because of how much of a little bitch they are and, at the same time, how much of a disappointment they are to their far superior stepdad. It's a sad, sad story... but a very true one all the same.

And although the feeling will never be the same in Extreme Metal from before 1996, I can at least listen to Death Metal nowadays and not shudder. We've still got bands like Krisiun, Atheist, Bolt Thrower and Napalm Death (And a whole flock more who i'm forgetting to mention at this moment) trying to tear the world to shreds. So fuck your over-technical guitar playing that goes nowhere... fuck your lack of worthwhile songwriting ability... fuck your bullshit, hardcore-style vocals mixed with unemotional clean singing... fuck your style, fuck your clothing, fuck your colorful band shirt, fuck your breakdowns, fuck your and most of all... fuck you. By the way... early Death Metal, albeit brutal, had a hidden fun vibe. They were enjoying what they are doing. And not showing enjoyment in a retarded, overflamboyant way like that jackoff guitarist of Killswitch Engage, Adam Dutkiewicz (Who is also responsible for producing some of the worst modern Metal records in existence. Thanks a lot, asshole!)... these guys were making something new, something fresh and something that got pulled almost straight out of thin air (Although, obviously, there were some influences from early Hardcore Punk, Crust Punk and Thrash Metal) and they were having a great time doing it.

It will (Most likely) never have that feeling again, however... I refuse to sit quietly by while the brutality and enjoyability of Extreme Metal gets tarnished by a bunch of jackasses. I am going to, very simply, shoot you all into the sun. It will be glorious.
