UFO anybody? It's hard to tell where hard rock ends and metal begins but '70's era UFO was a pretty important transitional band IMO. Schenker was very influential to hard rock/metal guitarists at the time.

I saw the 1978 tour. UFO opened for Blue Oyster Cult. They recorded the 'Strangers In The Night' live album from this tour. BOC - Some Enchanted Evening. It was a great rock show. Very heavy.

I saw them in the fall of '78 as well. It was billed "A Day at the Grape" at a football field in Lodi. Foreigner was the headliner. This had to be just before Schenker left.

I saw UFO in 1979 also. Califfornia World Music Fest (a 10 hour per day event). Schenker was gone from the group, and the face of the earth as far as we knew. His whereabouts were unknown. Van Halen and Aerosmith headlined. I think the first MS solo album was in '81.

Coevad easily got the better headliner. No contest.

Greg Kihn and Nick Gilder were also on the bill. I guess that doesn't help tip the scales in my favor.

BOC for sure. It was bad ass when they shot the laser off of the mirror ball during Astronomy.

When I saw Cheap Trick on NYE 1979, NG was the opener. He sure sounded like a chick, and we all fought to get out to the lobby as soon as he hit the stage. CT was amazing! Tom's 8-string bass sounded so good.

Imperial State Electric just put out a cover version of the Albert Bouchard/Richard Meltzer tune Cagey Cretins. Originally released on BÖC's Secret Treaties.

My best friend in the world Rick Land plays in this band. Check them out if you like metal. They are currently on hiatus, because the drummer is having personal problems. What is it with heavy metal drummers?

Please do elaborate, since I have no idea if you are referring to my friend's band or heavy metal in general? If you have criticism, that is fine too. I'm a big boy. I can take it.

I listened. Not really my cup of tea.

Yes, this. I really only enjoy a pinch of it, and I do not know/care about branch off genre titles.
Be it crust grind death gore amputee ghost clap metal or thrashcore blackened doom funeral graveyard mist metal.
I have no idea - I just know what rocks me. And often times, those sounds are ugly and tortured.
Stinking and unstable and diseased.
Afflicted and unraveling abruptly... in broad daylight.

No offense. But if you don't really like heavy metal in general, why are you even bothering with this thread? I could understand you saying my friend's band is not your cup of tea, if you actually liked heavy metal. But you just slagged off his band, while also saying that you don't care for heavy metal music in general. :?

Ok, I will expand on my elaboration. Sorry for the confusion.

I do like Heavy Metal. But as with all genres, personal tastes play a big part.
Pick any genre of music, you don't like 100% of it, do you? Me either.
Well, regarding the sample I posted, I wanted to post something that somebody here may not be familiar with.
Also, the 3 bands I "grew up on" were Kiss, AC/DC, and Ted Nugent.
Those may not even be considered "Heavy" Metal. Maybe "Rock-n-Roll". Whatever.
I just assumed (yes, I know) that you guys have covered and re covered those grounds here.

I also like The Dillinger Escape Plan (sans the vocals), S.O.D, and Ghoul.


And I wasn't slagging off your friend's band.
I was merely stating that they do nothing for ME.
This has absolutely no bearing on their talent/abilities.

Understood. There is a fine line between heavy metal/hard rock which MTV took great privileges at confusing the public with in the '80's. The 3 bands you grew up on were hard rock until the '80's came. Then they needed a new tag to sell this music, otherwise those 3 would have drifted off into oblivion. There's no point in getting started on all the metal sub genres that have been created over the years. It's enough to make your head spin. I asked for clarification and you provided it. We're cool.

Cool.
Yes, some of the sub genres are high impact comedy gold.
Oh great, here I go kicking over a bucket of worms. And not even 30 posts in.

The solo from "Miracle Man". Yes, he is a big horror movie fan. The couch behind him is where I sleep when Malachi and I visit.

Wreckage by Entombed
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdJCdCcaX6c

Say what? Well come again
Do you think you can change it ?
It's just a matter of time
'til it all will end
I'm a wreck
and so are you
We're all wrecked up
I got a date with the devil and so do you

Will our bad luck ever turn
I doubt it man
I think we're destined to burn alive
yeah we have lost
But we refuse to realize it at all cost
And the futures now
Isn't that tomorrow?
How can a man be so blind to see a wreck is the only way.

I'm a wreck!

Say what? Yeah, well come again
Do you think you can change it?
It's just a matter of time
'til it all will end
I'm a wreck
and we're all dead
We're all wrecked up
I'll be rockin' and rollin' in hell instead!

So put on a smile and I'll light the ignition
This is real life, it ain't cinemavision
And yeah, the time's right now
it will never be tomorrow
So don't ask how can I fit six billion in my car
drive it off a cliff - go out like a dinosaur
Here I am balanced on the edge
and it makes me fucking scared!


Songwriter: Nicke Andersson
