    I'm sorry , but in my humble opinion , screaming like an oik into a microphone just makes you look like an idiot ... you want decent industrial style Rock ? Nine Inch Nails have been doing well ... and Filter are the best . Also take a spin in the stabbing westward musical machine .. they're damn good .

    Slipknot are brilliant - regardless of their masks. They're not The Tweenies ya know!

    You should check out the latest album. It's just amazing.... but I still like Coldplay! :D

    AFI - are you into hardcore stuff? Or is it mainly thrash?

    Screaming like an oik? And what, pray, might that be? If you want heavy metal you have to have agressive lyrics. Slipknot take that to another level. And it's not like they are the first band to scream like and 'oik'. If you bothered to listen to their CD properly you might notice how their songs are structured to a much better quality than the majority of crap out there.

    Yes I like Some hardcore stuff. AFI can be considered hardcore can't they?
    Mainly thrash and extreme metal though.

    Yeah , your right Minx , I do like steps ... why .. because they broke up and I won't be subjected to thier prefab trash .

    And how can I listen to Pitchshifter and not Slipknot ... simple , J.S.Claydens vocals are intelligible .

    No .. they're sell out's . Commercialised almost as bad as the manic Street Preachers ( the biggest sell outs ever ) . They are gimmicky and overrated .

    I've never heard that one personally. But I'm sure that it's better than any of the she-ite stuff computerized DJ nonsense that isn't even proper music.

    And as to 'they are commercialized sell out's' Do they even look or sound commercialized? I think not. Linkin Park are an example of pure commercialism.

    Try listening to Hybrid AFI ... you can't make a call like that . Your dismissing a genre plainly because its not what you like . Sure I'm a rock fan , but I like some dance stuff .

    Hello , AFI , i'm a rock fan ... from such giants as Iron maiden , to Nine Inch Nails ... i'm a fan of the Genre that Slipknot lie within .. and i'm telling ... they suck . And yes , they are commercialised . You think the masks are for fun ... let me tell you a trade secret ... marketing .

    Yeah...course it is...

    I'm not going into the complex compostion layers of so called dance crap..but when you hear people like Steve Riech or Stockhausen or any modern classic composer who uses a computer and Logic..you will understand that although electronic produced music may be a little tasteless to the metal conossieur...it actually takes ( what we call in trade ) talent to make..

    Slipknot on the other hand...are lacking talent and originality...and should be mocked for what they are...
