Coroner is a Swiss technical thrash metal band from Zurich, Switzerland formed in 1983. They garnered relatively little attention outside of Europe. Coroner's music combines elements of thrash, progressive rock, jazz, and industrial metal with suitably gruff vocals. With their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash, they are often labeled as "the Rush of thrash metal" by music critics. Coroner's sound then progressed and the production became more refined, resulting in the more progressive No More Color, Mental Vortex… read more

    Except somebody who listens to Meshuggah and criticizes Coroner as soulless wankery obviously sees more than that in Meshuggahs sound but doesnt see more than that in Coroner. Its not hypocritical to me.

    The terms "boring wankery" or "souless wankery" are used to bash on bands and artists that show off their technical skills on an instrument accusing them of doing it for the sake of pretentiousness (basically any prog-rock/jazz-related act). It is not used to distinctly say "yo, mah wankery is betta than ye wankery" like a cheese contest. In my opinion it is a weak argument used by people to justify their lack of understanding and appreciation for music created and performed with proficiency and its mostly used hypocritically.

    I think its fair to like Meshuggah and dislike Coroner. Yeah sure theyre both Tech Metal but the similarities end there. Meshuggah are much more Groove Metal oriented and use lots of polyrhythms and more chuggy heavy guitar riffs with a bit of a surreal atmosphere sometimes added in. Coroner on the other hand are way more Thrashy with Prog Rock elements that increased in time, Mental Vortex being the most surreal feeling out of their albums before completely going against the Thrashy sound in Grin. Its not hypocritical to like one band and criticize the other as "boring wankery" because both bands are a different form of "wankery" obviously if someone likes Meshuggah and not Coroner then that means that they feel the Meshuggah style has more to it leading them to label Coroner as "boring wankery".

    Best Swiss band alongside Celtic Frost / Hellhammer (ok, Samael and Alastis were great, too)...

    "You like this one band so you can't criticize this completely unrelated band. Makes sense." Nice straw man right there boyo. What I'm saying is how someone who likes an artist whose music is commonly refered to as "boring wankery" is going out there calling "boring wankery" on other artists' works. It's like going out there wearing a ku kux klan costume calling other people racists: You're either joking or you're plain stupid.
