"Pantera is shit. The shame of groove metal". I agree with what CriticalSwitch said. I do not understand why they worship them so much when they are nothing, but a disgrace for "Groove metal." I rather prefer listing to "Five Finger Death Punch" or "Machine Head" than these clowns.

"And can a groove metal fan tell me 20 groove bands, no, why?" I could tell even more than 20, but I won't do it for you because you don't deserve this. And I don't need any "respect" from dirty long-haired losers who talk shit about things they don't understand in the internet on a regular basis but suck at everything IRL.
Thrash wasnt junk you fucking idiot, and groove didnt kill thrash, nobody is telling it did, the only thing we hate is that they "made" nu metal. And can a groove metal fan tell me 20 groove bands, no, why? Because they dont exist. And Selptura after Chaos A.D sucks. Have enought of fucking buthurt posers like Critical Switch, they just realize nobody respects their genre and then they need to bash on other more popular ones.
I'm glad that groove metal replaced that dull 80s thrash metal junk. It's great that the best thrash metal bands (Sepultura and Slayer) have chosen the groove metal way because they realised that thrash became obsolete and was inferior to groove in every aspect. It's always a pleasure to read oldschool thrash fags and hipsters whining about how "groove killed thrash" and things like that. Always reminds me of these hair metal crybabies complaining about grunge.
Don't understand the negativity about genre labeling. That's like saying you don't need labels for the food you buy. I don't want glam metal recommendations when i want more power metal suggestions (or whatever subgenre of metal you're into). Some bands might not have a defined style and sometimes gets lumped with whatever genre and there's always people like me who make mistakes when labeling a band, but it's a learning process like anything else.
This tag is criminally underrated. I mean, for example, Soulfly doesn't even have it in the top 5 even playing it the most period of career - of course not amount of listens, it's OK and even a bit overrated comparing to something else.
Hey I started a new group for music fanatics, the focus is going to be different than the ExMF and the frosty paradigm. It's a bit of an experiment but if a bunch of people get in it could be cool. Join if you are interested. I want this group to become a center for music discussion on Lastfm (even though it's metal centered, other genres are more than welcome to be discussed.) Cheers! http://www.last.fm/group/Unholy+Cult+of+the+Appraised+and+Damned

I kinda think 96 was the last time this genre was worth a damn. Afterwards, we got a lot of shitty bands (DevilDriver, Lamb of God, Chimera and Skinlab-oh man I hate Skinlab) that didn't offer what prior bands (Pantera, Sepultura, Machine Head, Grip Inc.-hell, Dearly Beheaded, whose album "Temptation" is one of the best things the genre offered) did. Give me earlier Groove Metal instead of whatever is around nowadays (okay, "The Blackening" was good.)
I think it's a bit of a matter of opinion in their case. It's not like determining genres is an exact science anyway. A person couldn't claim that Nailbomb is a black metal band and expect to get taken seriously, but there is a bit of subjectivity involved.
hey everyone!!check groove metal band from Moscow !
