I used to really like this band.... but they're just so.... eh, they have so much potential and just make watered down radio rock, and I say that as a person who listens to a lot of radio rock. Some good melodies here and there, and I think Wrong Side of Heaven is legitimately a good song, but this band is just not for me.
Ignore what Abe-X says, when someone has Black Sabbath in his library people like him shouldn't be taken seriously. He's either a troll or a very childish person. He's a loony; that much is certain, and he needs to find something constructive to do with his time than trolling around. Report him and his hateful comments and move on. If he starts to troll you; block him and ignore him.
I appreciate Pentagram, but I don't like Black Sabbath. The first three songs Paranoid, Changes and Iron Man I appreciate. I tried to start listening to them with an album Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, after five minutes, I got bored.
Paranoid is the only thing by them I can truly get behind, and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is incredibly awful. Still, "Sweet Leaf," "Into the Void," "Snowblind," and "War Pigs" are some of the best metal songs ever in their respective sub-genres, and perfect in every way.
I understand why people like them since I used to like them to when I was like 13 years old. They have some easy grooves that aren't really too hard to get into. It's less worse than disturbed, at least. But just listen to what you feel like listening too, man.
I love all these people bashing FFDP and every other successful metal band because they feel "Oh so underground and anti-conformist." So dainty, but don't worry, you'll get over this phase when you start to grow pubic hair.
At least this music is real, and *not* some cra* that sounds like ra*, or other f**e, mu-sick, that is out there, so, bottom line, stick with the real stuff, and, well, trash, put it in the trash can, df. ..... Good Luck, gotts to go!!!!!!
These guys have been my favorite band since about 2009. My friends that listen to techno, rap and other genres have FFDP song lyrics memorized because of me. Their music made and continues to make a large impact on my life, and I'd thank them for that if I had the chance.
I only have this account, and i've had it since 2010. I've also praised Avenged Sevenfold, especially City of Evil and The Stage. It's not my fault FFDP is everything wrong with modern "metal" encapsulated.
"Everything is wrong with music." Why don't you start a music career, instead of sitting and not doing anything useful? It's easy to say that FFDP is horrendous when you're sitting at home twiddling your thumbs, and not doing anything except sitting in front of a computer and insult everyone who is famous and well-known.
