    Why the Necrophagist hate? They are far from what real tech-wank is. Viraemia is pretty valid wankery though. I still like some of their songs though.

    So true. Tech wank is boring and means nothing. Some technical bands forget to actually write good music.

    fucking agree with everything about this group. i like gorguts, watchtower and a few other "technical" bands, but those bands do it right and don't end up sounding like wankery garbage.

    Power Metal is hardly technical. Cellador is the only thing that comes to mind when I think of pure guitar wank and Power Metal in the same train of thought. Don't hate on solo's, brah. Without solo's all you have left is shitty core garbage.

    "Technical" metal is nothing but cheesy ass wankery for dorks who know nothing about talent and creativity but think they're so trve because they listen to metal. This includes most power metal as it's replete with useless solos and predictable gimmicks that only make the music more ludicrous and clichéd. Unfortunately happens a lot in melodeath too.

    Anata knows how to write music that is both technical and catchy, Necrophagist does not.

    Lol butthurt idiots not getting the grasp of Necrophagists music. If you would take a closer listen you'd realize that Necrophagist can be not only technical but very catchy and memorable at the same time.

    And here I always assumed I was uncultured swine for walking out of a concert Necrophagist was headlining. I'm kidding. I always knew they sucked and anyone who disagreed with me was an idiot.

    You guys should probably do a list of the good and bad technical Death metal....

    Easy, when one does not like shit. They do not like Necrophaggots.

    necrophagist are wank. obscura can write music pretty well, excluding their first album they're pretty proggy with their second 2 albums.

    I bhought a Necrophagist T-shirt a few years ago for a fried who only listen to Power/Heavy, i puted on a song after i gave him the T-shirt and he told me that he hated me XD!

  • super_ruben09

    There are tons of metalheads who hate bands like Obscura and Necrophagist, so it's really not that weird.

    Is it not incredibly ironic that this group's charts are almost exclusively metal? Isn't metal the genre that would usually have this criticism leveled against it?

  • Woodgod

    Necrophagist and Obscura fall into the "wank" category.

    I prefer bands who can be complex yet original and memorable. Stuff like Augury, complex, ambitious, and really enjoyable. Sweep-Blast-repeat bands like Beneath the Massacre bore the hell out of me.

    I'd rather listen to a band like Repulsion or Anal Cunt than a band like Necrophagist or Dragonforce. [2]

    Paul Di'Anno has a raspy quality and rawness in his voice that made Maiden's sound heavier and more aggressive,I think todays Iron Maiden lost that sonic texture, to me it had more "charm" (for a lack of a better word to describe that youdon'tknowwhat stuff...)and vitality back in their beginnings, nevertheless I also really dig the way Dickinson handle his vocals on some excellent Maiden songs from different albums and periods IMHO.

    I hate bands like Necrophagist and obscura.The main problem is not just wankery...other bands don't need 5 tomes of books to write a riff.Besides,nowadays technical death metallers are all about sweep arpeggios.

    Light and Darkness,Man and Woman,Raw and Polished... The juxtaposition of opposites are always the most fascinating in everything that is. Too much of the same tends to alienation and boredom.

    >implying Seventh Son, Somewhere in Time and Powerslave aren't all more consistent than Killers (note that I still fucking love Killers). Not denying the power of 70s Priest (and certain later releases) or the first two Mercyful Fate albums though. All classics.

    September 2010
  • 3dd656

    Their first two probably. After it's a song here and there, but not a whole album. I'll stick with Saxon, Judas Priest, King Diamond and Mercyful Fate.
